Ode to Solitaire

Every day, i sit in school and play hours worth of solitaire. Aren't we supposed to be learning in school? I sure thought so, but these days I think people are too busy thinking school is just another place to be social. Of course I enjoy talking to friends at school, too, but I do want to learn. No kid takes school seriously anymore. What if someone from the past, just a few decades ago, came back and saw what school has become? Some kids just use school as a place to exchange drugs, or to tell friends about how high they got last weekend. I just find it depressing that school isn't actually a learning tool anymore. Who comes home from school and immediately goes over everything new they learned that day? No one. We just start thinking about the next day, and how much we hate one of our teachers, or how bad of a teacher we have, and how much we truly aren't learning anymore. But at least i've almost mastered winning a game of solitaire. That just might be my greatest accomplishment this school year.

Facebook Takes Over Lives

Just like every other high schooler throughout the whole country, I'm very much addicted to Facebook.
Why do I care if my friend from second grade had dinner at some fancy restaurant that night? Who knows? I really don't, but still I read it, and read what everyone else has to say, too. And the truth is, its hardly ever anything even close to being important. 
Do I really care if some girl I've never even talked to is now in a relationship? Nope. 
Still, I continue to spend hours a day on Facebook, just reading people's posts and adding people from school that I've never actually met. 
Hopefully, one day, I'll actually know the reason why I'm drawn to spend so much time on Facebook.

Why do people write blogs?

People create blogs all over the world everyday. So why follow mine? To tell you the truth, I have no idea why you'd want to follow mine. I may seem like just another high school freshman, which I am, at some times, and I just might enlighten you at others. I really don't have anything important to say at most times.
