Earth Day: Ways to Help the Planet

made on 4-22-2022

Hey everyone!! I know yesterday I said I would not be posting alot, but I felt very inspired to post this, let’s jump into it!

Happy Earth day!!!!!

If you didn’t know, Earth Day is a day which celebrates the start of the environment protection movement, and reminds us to protect this planet that we call home. Now, technically, we should love and be kind to this planet every day, but today is just a reminder! Anyways, I will be showing you guys some ways to start being more friendly to the environment. These are very simple things you can do to help. Every small thing helps!!

1.Slowly try and get rid of unnecessary plastic in your life

I know alot of countries like Kenya and Thailand, as well as many states like California and New york have put a “ban” or tax on plastic bags and other plastic things. This is very helpful to the environment. So much plastic piles up every year and causes alot of pollution. We should all try to slowly reduce plastic in our life, like start using reusable bags instead of plastic when you shop at grocery stores, or use metal straws instead of plastic ones!

2.Recycle

Make sure to recycle! You can recycle so many things and give them new purposes! This is a super easy thing to do! But, make sure that whatever you are recycling is recyclable.

3.Use water wisely

There are so many places that have shortages of water currently! This could cause water to dry out and many could die! So, next time you think about taking a 20 minute shower, try and cut that down! Fix leaks when you see them, turn off the tap when you are brushing your teeth! These are very simple.

4. Plant a tree

We need more trees in this world. This little act does alot!

5. Be mindful of the world around you

Be mindful of other organisms and the environment. Don’t uproot little plants you see growing, and try not to litter. Make sure you look at where you are walking, try not to destroy anything you see in nature. If you see garbage on the street you should pick it up and dispose of it! Be a good citizen!

Anyways, that is it for this post, I hope you enjoyed it! Have you ever been to Yellowstone? How was it? Thank you so much for reading this!

My travels pt 3: Montana, Wyoming, Idaho: Yellowstone

made on: 4-14-2022

Hi everyone! Today I am doing another travel post!! As I said a looonnnnnggggg time agooo, I would be going on vacation soon(I already went) and I would make a post about it! Well, I am finally writing a post about it. Let’s fly ✈️ into it (pun intended). I went on this vacation in October 2021

Vacation: Montana, Wyoming, Idaho (Yellowstone National Park)

We covered three states during this vacation. We went to see Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. I went with my parents and my sister. This vacation was really fun! It was on my mom’s bucket list, which is the main reason we went.

Day 1, Saturday- Travel day

Today was our travel day. We boarded our plane at 5:30 am. We then had a small layover and ate some breakfast at that airport. I had a quesodilla from Cafe Rio and a pink drink from Starbucks! Yum! Note- I think I saw my teacher at that ariport! We then got onto our other plane, in that plane ride I finished my homework and drew a bit. We finally landed at West Yellowstone airport at around 12 pm mountain daylight time. We then had to drive from West Montana through Idaho and to Teton Village in Wyoming. We got to our airbnb condo at around 4 pm. Our airbnb condo was so cool! It had this ladder to this upstairs attic-loft kind of thing! I really liked the way it was decorated. After settling in we went to a nearby grocery store and got some fruits, vegetables, snacks, and hot cocoa mix. We had noodles for dinner and went to sleep at around 8:15 pm because tomorrow we had to wake up early.

Day 2, Sunday- Tour day

Today we had to wake up at around 5 am to get ready for our tour. Our tour guide picked us up at around 6:45 am. We had a tour through Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone. I learnt a bunch of new things and saw some cool animals like bisons, a bear, squirrels, moose, geese, and more! We stopped at a few places. Some of my favorite places we stopped at were the dragon’s mouth spring and the old faithful geyser. I saw the old faithful geyser ”blow” and it was so cool. Our tour guide recommended that we try some huckleberry chocolate bars, so we got some and they were really good! If you come here, you should definitely try some huckleberry stuff. Our tour guide said that it is good to come in the fall because most of the people come in summer, so it will be less crowded and there will be less traffic. Also it was snowing a little bit today which I thought was really cool! We got back home at around 5:40 pm.

a beautiful picture of the scenery. Look at the picture for Day 4, notice the DRASTIC weather change

Day 3, Monday- Jenny Lake day

Today was a good day. We went to see Jenny Lake. We got to Jenny lake at around 12 pm and hiked to the Hidden falls! It was so gorgeous there!! The hike was about 5 miles, my legs were hurting even though this was not even the longest hike I had ever done. We finished the hike at around 3:30 pm (we took some breaks, so it took us a longer time than most people). The weather was great today, it was kind of cold, but I loved it! After the hike we went to Bubba’s Bar-B-Que. I would definitely recommend going here! I shared baby back ribs with my dad with a side of mac and cheese and coleslaw. For desert I had huckleberry ice cream which was very yummy. I also got to try buttermilk pie and some sort of Italian doughnuts because my mom and sister ordered those. We reached our house at around 5pm. The only thing I regret from today was not arriving at Jenny lake earlier than 12. Here are some tips on what to bring if you are hiking in this area:

  • Bring some sort of bear spray- Bears roam around in this area so you want to have some just in case.
  • Bring snacks and water- You will need some to stay hydrated and energized.
  • Check the weather before you go somewhere- The weather here is unpredictable, so make sure to check it so you can be fully equipped.

Anyways that is basically it for what we did today, also today was our last day in the Teton village house.

Day 4, Tuesday : Driving day (mainly).

Today we decided to drive…. A lot! It was actually really fun! I got to spend alot of fun time with my family. We were driving from our Wyoming AirBnB to our Montana AirBnB which was a little cabin. I have to admit, I liked the Wyoming house better, but the Montana one was good too! Today was the day we drove in Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana, so technically we have been to all 3 states, but we didn’t really stop in Idaho! Also, today it was snowing, alot!! I love the snow and I was very happy with the change in weather. Anyways, we went to see so many cool places like the midway geyser basin! We tried some huckleberry candy which was yummy! I don’t know if I mentioned this or not, but huckleberries are really popular in Montana, they have huckleberry everything!! The Midway Geyser basin was really fun to visit and was probably my most favorite place to visit on this vacation! We saw the Opal pool, Turquoise pool, Excelsior geyser, and THE Grand Prismatic!! It was so fun to look at, I loved it, we couldn’t really see the vibrant colors of the grand prismatic because it was snowing though, so it would’ve been better to see in summer, but it was fun. I got to play in the snow there!! We reached our AirBnB house in the evening and since it was snowing heavily, I made a snow angel! The house owners were really kind and left us a few snacks!!

It was sooooooo pretty outside!!!!!!

Day 5, Wednesday: Lamar Valley and Gardiner Montana

It was snowing again today! We drove alot and stopped at the Travertine terrace at the Mammoth Hot Springs. The mammoth hot springs was fun, but it probably would’ve been better to visit if it was summer, since it was snowing alot and we couldn’t really see the beauty, also it smelled really bad there. My dad, my sister, and I ganged up on my mom and attacked her with snowballs here, that was fun! I also hit my dad and sister too!! Interesting fact, if you throw snowballs into the mammoth springs, they will melt almost instantly!! Next up, we went to Gardiner Montana, and we went to this place for lunch called Wonderland Cafe and Lodge, and let me tell you, the food there was AMAZING!!! The popcorn shrimp was amazing, the mac and cheese was amazing, the brownie was delectable!!! Everything was super yummy! This was the best restaurant of our entire vacation! After, we went to a gift shop nearby and bought some souvenirs and huckleberry ice cream! Yes, I am the kind of person to eat ice cream in the snowy cold weather! Then we drove to Lamar valley and got alot of good animal pictures, it was very scenic.

Day 6, Thursday: Traveling back home!

Today was our last day in yellowstone!!!! Our trip was very fun and we were sad to go, yet happy to come back home. Before we left, I made a couple more snow angels, and a short snowman!! We went to the airport, got some lunch, and went home!

Overview

This trip was so fun overall! I would definitely recommend!!

NEW PLANTS!!! YAYYYY

made on 4-7-2022

Hellooo everybody!! Welcome/welcome back. I hope you all are enjoying your april so far! Today I have a very exciting announcement.. or at least for me 🙂 Well, let’s get into it!!

New Plants!!

So, as you can probably tell… we got new plants!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy! If you didn’t know, I used to have a bamboo named Ina (pronounced EE-na), but she died, you can read about that here. Anyways these new plants have filled the hole in my heart! By the way, to make this very clear: I AM IN NO WAY REPLACING INA WITH THESE NEW PLANTS, THEY ARE NOT REPLACEMENTS FOR HER. I would never replace Ina!! She holds a very special place in my heart. Well we got alot of new plants, we got all of these because my parents really wanted new plants because it is spring, I asked if I could get a plant, and I did. That’s the story. You might be wondering,I said we got multiple plants, but I just said that I got my own personal plant. Well the thing is, I love all the other plants too and they are my family’s (which includes me) so, in a way, they are mine, but I am not responsible for them. I will not be watering them, or anything else, just loving them. My plant is very cute!! I am not going to reveal his name and picture until a later post, but I will very soon!! I have come up with names for ALL of the plants we got which makes me more attached to them!! I am so happy!!

Anyways, I just randomly wanted to say that toasted bread with fig spread and ricotta cheese is SOO GOOD. You should really try it! I also really love bagels with strawberry cream cheese, it is a great snack!!!

Happy St. Patrick’s day + Volunteering!

made on 3-17-2022

Hey there!! This is a little post about St. Patrick’s day and an experience! Let’s get into it!

Happy St. Patricks day (even though I don’t really celebrate it)!! If you celebrate it, what green clothing are you wearing? I am wearing a green shirt! I wish you all tons of luck!! I also got a green star drink from Starbucks! I’m extra green! By the way, the star drink is actually really good! I would recommend it.

Volunteering

Here is a little story about a volunteering experience I had recently! So yesterday (3-16-2022) my dad, my sister, and I went volunteering. It was something brought up at his work and he signed all of us up for it! It was actually really fun, we got to paint stuff and help create stuff! I had fun. There was also a little gift shop attached to the place we volunteered at and I got a really pretty stick and a keychain like thing. That is my little story. I think if you have the opportunity, you should definitely take it! Volunteering can help others and looks very good on applications, resumés, and more!

Now here is something a little off-topic, but I just wanted to point it out: Have you noticed that I have started to post every Thursday? I have kind of gotten into a small schedule which I am proud of! So from now on, I will TRY to post every Thursday (unless I change my mind) and any other day I feel like it!! How does that sound? Sounds good to me!

My Crazy Wednesday!- ANNOUNCEMENT + Question

made on 3-10-2022

Hello!!! Today is a very chill post, but I have a special announcement and question at the end so stay tuned for that!!

My Crazy Wednesday

Okay, so this was yesterday, 3-9-2022. Yesterday I was VERY busy! I came back from school at around 4:45 (I had to do something). My school day was good. I had a little homework, but the problem was that I was STRESSED!!! I was stressed because I had 3 tests to take the next day (today), and yes.. TESTS not quizzes! I am not usually stressed about tests, but the tests are all on alot of information which I had to study, and 2 of the subjects which I was going to be taking a test for are not my strongest subjects!! Anyways I studied really hard yesterday! I studied for around 3 hours (with breaks of course)! What I also like to do when I have tests is I wake up really early the next day and revise and review a little in the morning. You should try it because it helps you remember the information for the test (because you might forget some of the information overnight). Also to top off all of that studied, I had a headache, and my leg was hurting! Wow! Anyways, that was a busy/crazy Wednesday! Also side note, but I recently saw a choreography of “break up with your girlfriend i’m bored” by Ariana Grande, and now it is stuck in my head! I haven’t that song since 2019!! It’s really catchy and has been stuck in my head since Tuesday!

ANNOUNCEMENT + QUESTION!!!

GUYS…..we reached 100 followers!! 98 followers and 2 email followers! Yay!!! Thank you guys all sooooo much for all the support! Here is my question: What would you all like me to do to celebrate? Give me some ideas! Maybe a Q and A, maybe a reflection,etc… Comment below anything you would like me to do! It can be ANYTHING
