What I Identify With

Sometimes I like to believe that I’m actually a cat.

Hey everyone! Today I’m feeling very tired and meh-ish. Especially because I’ve now had to type everything twice. (My finger hit a wrong button) Normally, I sleep until my mom comes to wake me up at around 10 am. But more recently I’ve been waking up every morning at 6:30 so I can make it to an urban farm camp (which is across town) on time. I have a lot of fun everyday. We get to milk goats, eat mullberries, make popsicles, pick oranges, collect eggs, make friendship type bracelets and so much more. The camp is getting 2 baby pigs on Wednesday, so we are going to build a pig pen tomorrow and, on a completely unrelated note, we are also going to sew tote bags. I know that this is random, but I’m kind of thinking that I might want to subscribe to like a beauty box or something. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I could really use a spa day soon. At farm camp, I met this really really nice girl named Melia. (Pronounced: Meh-Lea) I made her a bracelet and she is going to make me one. I am struggling to keep my eyes open and I still have reading to do. See you guys later!

My Top 10 Favorite Things (in general)

Hi there, my name is Evelyn and this is my blog post.

I actually had some trouble trying to come up with an idea for my first blog post because I have so many ideas. I decided in the end that a post about some of my favorite things will be best, so you can get to know me more. These are a few of my favorite things. (Notice the song reference there!)

10. Receiving Mail                                                                                                                                                  Whenever I see a letter or package in the mailbox addressed to me, it makes me feel thought of and loved. I don’t often get mail, so it’s always pretty exciting.

9. Netflix (movies)                                                                                                                                                  I actually prefer movies over T.V. shows because they last longer and for me that means I can enjoy it longer. I also love having friends over so we can watch movies and eat popcorn together. My favorite movie is The Choice.

8. Harry Potter                                                                                                                                                       Okay, so here’s a disclaimer for you: I am a total fan girl when it comes to Harry Potter. I enjoy being brought into that world through the books and movies. My favorite characters are Ginny and Hermione because they are such feminists.

7. Photography                                                                                                                                                       I have a Canon T5i and I just love being able to capture my life through it. When it comes to taking photos, I feel that I have a very artsy approach to all of it. I think I might want to get a Polaroid sometime, but who knows?

6. Music                                                                                                                                                                    I really appreciate music because it is basically poems (see 5.) put to sound. You can almost always find me singing in the shower or listening to music. La la la la la la.

5. Poetry                                                                                                                                                                    Free verse, haiku, acrostic, and many more genres. I enjoy expressing myself through organized thought. I guess that’s also probably why I like Shakespeare so much. “To be or not to be, that is the question.”

4. Art                                                                                                                                                                          Art is very unique, yet very experimental. I like different impressionists like Monet, Van Gogh, Degas and Renoir. Their paintings are breathtaking. And what I especially love is that each picture has a background (a history).

3. Reading and Cooking                                                                                                                                      I feel as if these two go hand in hand. For me, they are both very relaxing and fun at the same time. I read and cook pretty often, so they have kind of embedded themselves into my schedule.

2. Animals                                                                                                                                                               Animals have this energy that they give off that relaxes me. I enjoy cuddling, playing, and just being with them. I strongly disagree with ‘dressing’ them up. They have no control over that, so I feel that it is very inhumane.

1. Musicals!                                                                                                                                                              I LOVE musicals. They have acting, dancing, singing, humor all rolled into 1 show. I have co-starred in a few musicals in my town, but I hope to do something more mainstream as I get older. I liked when I got to visit New York and go see some shows on Broadway! My favorite would have to be Mama Mia or Wicked.

You made it to the end of my article! Thank you! Stay tuned though, because I plan on posting hopefully once a week. Have a good day!!                                                                                                                     From,                                                                                                                                                                                Evelyn
