My Life Monday #16

Helloooooo internet. It’s Issie! How’s life? I hope it’s going well. You know what? I’m pretty happy right now. School is hard, but I make it through.

Okay so what’s been going on in my life recently… Let’s start with FFA. I joined the Job Interview team at my school. For this I have to get recommendations, fill out an application, and create a cover letter. You choose a job based on the 7 Ag pathways. I don’t remember what all of them are, but I remembered one of them was animal science, and I knew that’s what I wanted to do because I have such an experience with animals. So, Job Interview you pick a fake job that is created for the sace of the competition. You fill out all the paperwork like you would do in a regular job application, and you get interviewed. It’s a competition, but it’s also a simulation of a job that you would apply for so that you get proper experience for when you apply for a real job that you’re interested in. I have applied for the position of a part-time Assistant Swine Herder. I am not too experience with swine but the job description just said you needed to have experience with animals, and I totally do.

Another thing I’m doing in FFA is Project Competition. I love doing this, I did it last year, but it’s a public speaking competition where the judges come to your house and you give a presentation about your animals. I love talking about my project and I just enjoy speaking competitions I think I’m pretty good probably because I’ve been doing speaking competitions and winning (if I do say so myself) since I was 9. But I have a lot of paperwork to fill out over this week for both of of these competitions, but it’s super fun.

Next thing in my life! Hmmmm. Music! Guitar. We’re starting to do do or Christmas songs for our concerts. I’m playing harmony and bass for different songs but I feel like I suck at this but I’m working on it but it’ll get better.

Formal was three days ago, and that was absolutely great. My boyfriend and I had dinner at my house. My mom hit dollar general and bought some table covers and cute paper plates and napkins. We had a nice dinner together my mom made this super easy pasta dish (my boyfriend’s favorite food is pásta). We also had fro-yo, and watched Supernatural on the couch before we went. When we went to the dance we had a good time. He doesn’t dance too much but he doesn’t sit up against the wall. He holds my hand and stares and laughs at me while I dance like an idiot. And when we slow dance I yell the lyrics to the Ed Sheeran songs that’s playing. Then he kisses me and says I’m cute, he’s right. I had a good night with friends, and it was nice to spend time with him, and my friends, and to not have to spend money.

It’s Thanksgiving break now, all of my teachers tell me to enjoy my break but it’s hard to do that when they give you homework. I have lots of things I want to do this week, and one of them is a fall photoshoot. I am so excited because the leaves around my home town are so colorful and their are so many colorful walls I want to take pictures in front of.

I also have my first game tomorrow, wish me luck.

But hey! It’s Thanksgiving, and I am so thankful for everything in my life, my animals, my school, my friends, my life, my country, my boyfriend, my sports, food, the fact that McDonald’s finally opened back up in our home town. There’s so much to be thankful for, I’m very blessed. I’m surprisingly not a huge fan of Thanksgiving, I don’t know why, but I do adore food so it works.

Comment below what you’re thankful for. So this is my life right now. If you liked this and you find me tolerable, like and subscribe below. Remember good vibes=good life.

Feels Friday #3

“The Little Things”

I feel genuinely happy.

 

It’s the little things that mean everything.

Friday night lights,

And stargazing nights.

Harry Potter books,

Trying new looks.

Kisses that taste like coffee,

With his green eyes gazing at me.

Being with the people I love.

It’s just the little things that make me happy.
