9: Thursday.

Happy Patty's day. I'll talk about luck in a moment, so stick with me, but before that, to me, Patty's day is just another holiday to dye things green and make them taste like mint. It's just an excuse to pinch people, wear green, even though we all know it's not a creative color and prance around in a field to find a mystical, four leaved clover. Why we think little, orange-bearded, Irish elves protect pots of gold that the end of rainbows, is unknown to me. It sounds like an epic Mad lib everyone believes in, but I guess if you think like than, most holidays must seem kind of stupid.

All I remember about the story of Saint Patrick is, well, not a lot. Bits and pieces really. I know he got mad that he couldn't take a slab of stone with him on a boat, then he threw it in the ocean and the rock floated him to a nearby island. I remember something about snakes, but that's it. I mean, I could be thinking about, say, Saint Valentine, but now that you know what Patty's day means to me, I can tell you what I think of luck.

Luck isn't real, good luck at least. I'm pretty sure the list of worst to best luck goes more like: Very bad, bad, normal then coincidence, rather than: Very bad, bad, normal, good, then great. I can only believe in what what I've experienced and I've never experienced good luck, just a string of convent coincidences.

You could argue that because I think bad luck does happen, that good luck must happen as well, because everything has an equal and opposite force. I don't think thats necessarily true. If you go up, you don't have to come down, you just have to stay up till the end of forever.

Of course my logic is flawed. I'm sure pretty much anyone can tear apart what I just typed in a six worded sentence, but hey, I'm writing this two days early at midnight. Cut me a little slack.

But anyway, I hope you have a nice day and if you don't, sorry man. It'll be better someday. Besides, I'm sure you'll remember to wear green next year. You might even still have bruises from all those pinches!

8: Monday.

I know it might not come across in text, but I truly am someone who overthinks pretty much everything from how I sound eating something to other people, to how quickly I walk when I'm in front of people. I do try to make life a little easier for the people who are around me and that makes me want other people to return the favor. As we all know, people rarely do. So, hopefully, by making a list, I can convince some of you do start, or continue doing theses things. 

1: Don't sit in front of people in a Movie Theater.

Just don't. Don't sit in front of someone, don't eat stuff loudly during an emotionally charged scene, don't talk, don't pull out your phone, don't throw popcorn, don't slurp your drink and do not tell spoilers before the movie starts. 

2: Slow walkers.
Some people just want to see others be late. If you walk slow, for the love of everything amazing in the world, just walk on the side or speed up. It's not that hard to do.

3: Don't ask stupid questions.

Don't ask me how my day was. Don't ask me what 2+2 is and don't ask me why a pink unicorn must travel to land to the land of candy corn to collect a silver flower to unlock the rainbow cave to get the glitter wand to impress the blue unicorn.

4: There, their and they're.

Okay, I'm sure you know this already, because grammar police exist, but in case you don't. These are three different word, used for three completely different things. If I ever see some mess these up (or your and you're as well), I will let them know. This needs to end. 

5: Hype.

Hype, in itself,  isn't a bad thing, but hype can be a bad thing. Whenever I want to see a new movie, or t.v show, I avoid all hype. Hype just ruins it for me. I don't know. Anyone else like that?

Have a good day.

7: Monday.

Do you ever have those moments when you're bored, but you don't want to do anything?

It's like, you just wonder around, doing seemingly random and strange tasks, like watching YouTube videos and/or sweeping, but you can only do them for a few minutes before you lose interest and move on to another random task?

I promise, I really did try to find out what this is called, or why it happens. I know there's a reason to why it happens. It probably has to do with some kind of chemical in the brain, or body, but I lost interest in finding the answer, so I moved on to figuring out three of the best ways to combat this phenomenon and to write those three things down for you to read, just in case you ever go through this drought of focus and inspiration.

One: Get a Hobby.
Writing, reading, sports, music, knitting, crocheting, baking, video games, running, swimming, babysitting, painting, drawing, coloring, word puzzles, driving, flying, teaching, gardening, cleaning,  crafting, camping, kayaking, boating, fishing, hunting, rock climbing, surfing, rock painting, pet-petting, and Tumblr are just a few ones I could think of. 

Two: Find something to do and do it.
If you're bored, I understand that it can hard to stick to something, but maybe that's just the thing you should do.  Find a hobby and use it to scare your boredom away.

Three: Wait it out. 
I know this isn't really beating your boredom, but like I said, it's probably just a chemical, or lack of in your brain or body. So if you can't cause a release of feeling, the best thing you can do, is to wait for whatever is lacking in your mind to pick back up again.

I will be using these sometime in the future. I know one day, I will know why this happens and how, but until then, this is the best that I can do for you. Have nice day.

6: Tuesday.

So, about four post ago I told you that you were going to learn about me in chunks. So, today, I've decided to give you an insight into my mind by telling you a list of five things that I love.

1: Rainy nights.

I'm the kind of person who can't sleep unless there is some kind of noise. I don't care if its music over a radio or just a clock ticking. The sound of my own heart creeps me out when I'm trying to sleep, so when it rains overnight, its a built in clock and I find the sound of rain calming.

2: Being home alone.

When I'm home alone it means I can listen to music without earbuds. I can think out loud. I can leave the warmth and solitude of my room. Now, I have two siblings and two step-siblings, so this doesn't happen very often. In fact, I really think its only happened twice, which sucks.

3: Someone offering to make me coffee. 

As simple and as small as this is, something about that gesture means a lot to me. Even if I say no, its the thought that counts right?

4: Finding a new show to binge. 

You know what's awesome? Finding a well written show with good acting and perfect casting. Is there anything that could match up to that? Not really, except when you find a new show on Netflix with five seasons that also fits those criteria. It will probably last for like two weeks and than I'll go back to watching bits and pieces of various shows I've previously watched, but next time I find a new show, it will be one of the shows I watch bits and pieces of.

5: Realizing something you thought would be terrifying, isn't.

I'm in band, so I play in concerts and do various other things that put me in the public eye. I don't like being in anyone's eye, so I get butterflies. One fear I have is starting the song and not be able to make anymore noise, but once I do play the first couple of notes, everything is ends up fine.

There you go! Five things I love. Maybe in a bit I should do a five things I hate. One day, one day.
