Bad News

Posted: June 2, 2011 by melissa2012 in MelissaH

What is with me when I get bad news? During the summer vacation of 2010, my friend Ansliegh and I were talking. Mary was there, also. The whole conversation took a turn for the worse. She started talking about her dad and how he died a few months before. This is what started the chain of events. When she started to talk about her dad, I was thinking of something funny that happened the previous week. I wanted to laugh out loud. I let a few chuckles out, but they didn’t notice. I almost lost ot when she said that she felt him in his spiritual form. Luckily, I found enough strength in me to stop for a minute. I tried to explain to them that I was just happy that he was with her even after he had passed on. All was going well until she said the she felt a cold breeze lay with her on the couch. That is when everything fell apart. I completely lost control. I didn’t realize how hard I was laughing until I saw them staring at me. I started to feel bad, but I couldn’t stop. Maybe this is how I deal with sad things such as death.  This only happens in person. Never on the phone.

The Rainbow Cabin

Posted: June 2, 2011 by melissa2012 in MelissaH

It was supposed to be a little cabin made of Popsicle sticks. I had all sorts of colors, pretty much the entire rainbow. I figured making a small cabin for fun was going to be easy. Not the case, not the case at all. I didn’t know anything about building it or how or where I was going to start. I went by what I saw and what I remembered from watching a video about building small cabins. I went by the instructions that said to start out with the basic floor structure. That part wasn’t too bad and was pretty easy. The walls were next, not too hard. I have to say that the most annoying part was waiting on the glue to dry. I had to wait at least ten minutes before I could even put the walls on. The roof, on the other hand, was very tricky. I couldn’t stick the sides of the pretty sticks together for nothing in this world. The glue just would not dry. I didn’t even know if it was possible for me to finish this cabin. I started to give the poor, old cabin a flat roof. Instead of it being a cabin, it was going to be a shack. I was determined to get this cabin finished and I was not going to give up no matter what. The roof, even though it was a little crooked and odd shaped, got the job done perfectly. When I looked at my masterpiece, I began to feel ashamed and embarrassed. I didn’t show my cabin to anyone for a while. Then, I realized that what I had built….was beautiful. I worked so hard on it. So, not only did I have a cabin made entirely out of rainbow Popsicle sticks, I had a cabin that also smelled like fruit.

My Life Lesson

Posted: June 1, 2011 by melissa2012 in MelissaH

Be polite and think of others first.

Don’t worry about silly things and fret over mistakes.

Nobody is perfect.

Live life and love yourself even if it seems tough.

Be the very best person you can be and love greatly.

Be at peace and life will be a gift.

Don’t rush in life, be patient and all will go as planned.

Cat and Mouse

Posted: June 1, 2011 by melissa2012 in MelissaH

The air was thick with the scent of cat food. I hear tiny paws running across the floor. I’m getting tired and out of breath. Still, she runs from me. I hear her run around the corner as I brush the hair from my face. Still, she hides from me. This whole ordeal reminds me of a cat and mouse game. I am the predator and she is the prey. I chase her and chase her until finally, I can not go on any longer. I feel something run across the floor very close to my feet. I see her! With one last stride, I catch her. Her eyes begged for attention.

Free Choice..

I decided to write about a few of my favorite things. First things first…airplanes.  I have been interested in airplanes and how they work for as long as I can remember. It’s amazing how that much metal can fly through the sky with ease. I always said that they reminded me of metal paper airplanes. I started collecting and making model airplanes a few years ago. I have many airplanes but my favorite would have to be my Continental Airlines model. Another favorite thing is trampolines. I love trampolines. I got my first trampoline when I was 4 or 5 years old. I had it for a long time but had to take it down because it was getting pretty old. I had three more trampolines over the next couple of years. I miss my first trampoline, though. I learned everything on it. Well, a few simple tricks. It was my bestfriend. I cut a few pieces off of it and still have them. Finally, my most favorite thing in the whole world is the Star Wars series. Star Wars is the coolest thing I have ever seen. The whole battle scenes with the ships and numerous creatures..not to forget the lightsabers. Seeing all of that together makes me happy. My favorite character is Anakin Skywalker. Especially in episode 3 Revenge of the Sith. He turns to the darkside to protect Padme, but he ends up killing her in his rage. Ironic isn’t it?  I don’t really like Darth Vader, but he does have an awesome intro theme. I have Anakin’s lightsaber. Well, the master replica drom episode 3. I also have Luke Skywalker’s from episode 6. I really want Obi-Wan Kenobi’s. I also want Mace Windu because his is an awesome purple. I want everyones saber let’s just put it that way.

Purple Butterfly.

Finally, the day had come. The day that would start your downfall. As you stayed silently on the floor, your life started to tick away. Just like an old grandfather clock. Every second would break through my chest and enter my heart like unforgiving bullets. All those years we had together were great, but when I think back on the times that I didn’t spend time with you or wouldn’t call you on the phone, really made me feel like I betrayed you. I hope you didn’t feel like I did. I wanted to come see you, but I couldn’t go all the way to North Carolina. I really wish that I could have talked to you one more time on the phone. I wish I was there with you, but I probably wouldn’t have been able to handle your death, especially if it was right in front of me.  I miss you so. It’s really weird to think about it. I see you in your coffin and what you were dressed in. They had some yellow flowers on one side of you and I knew that you hated the color yellow. But the nice thing about it is what they put in your coffin. They put a pretty, purple butterfly with you. You loved butterflies and the color purple. I know you would’ve been greatful. I hate to think about it because I start to get sad and cry. I remember thinking about the people who came and got your body and I started to get mad. They didn’t know how much I loved you. To them you were just another body that they had to pick up.  You meant the world to me. I love and miss you very much.

Stage light alone burns holes in my eyes. Hoping the bright light will prevent me from seeing all of the wondering eyes staring at me.  Even though I know I’m lit up like  Christmas tree.  Hearing the soft Christmas music playing, knowing that I’m up next,made me feel like I was going to have a heart attack. I actually remembered the words to my part of the song. Maybe it was because I was on the spot or something. All I know is, I could not wait to sing those last lyrics of Silent Night. I noticed that many parents in the crowd were taking pictures of me and video taping me. I didn’t even know half of them, but there they were taking my picture. All I can say about that is that I am in some random home video with one of my many, random classmates. Oh well, I would actually like to see it. I can remember that night very well. I don’t really remember singing. Well, maybe I do, but I don’t want too.
