One of my favorite things to do is talk about conspiracy theories. To me, it is just so interesting to hear what people think and I like to shock them with my own conspiracy theories. From Tupac being alive still to saying 9/11 was an inside job, conspiracy theories are the best.
Some of my favorite theories are out of this world. Aliens, to me, are very interesting because there are so many ways to approach this theory. I feel there’s no way that there isn’t other life forms in all of the galaxy. They don’t even have to look like the aliens from all the movies. They could simply just be like us.
This leads me into my other theory. I believe that there are aliens on our planet that we see everyday because they look just like normal people, but they are here gathering information about how other lifeforms live. They aren’t necessarily doing it to end all of humanity, just to learn so they can improve their planet.
Even though, crazy-looking aliens that are trying to take over the world is a way better Hollywood approach, I just don’t find it to be too realistic. If they were going to take over the planet, they would’ve by now. (Unless they are planning the perfect time to strike!?)
Hopefully, my theory about them just looking like normal people and basically doing research for their homelands is true. I don’t really have much time on my hands to deal with an Alien takeover.
With all these memories (and more!) my top three are hard to choose, but I think I have decided.
Doing my first backpack story was one of the more proud moments of my life. I didn’t know what topic I wanted to cover at all, so I looked on a list of options MT made. I saw one over how teens cope with grief. It seemed challenging, so I wanted to take it on.
Getting interviews was the most challenging part about this. People kept cancelling on me and saying no, which is totally understandable. It's not easy to open up like that, especially on camera. MT was getting irritated because I was so late with the story, so she helped me get some interviews, so I could get the process started.
When it was all over, I was really pleased with the outcome! Here's a link to the story, CLICK HERE to see it!
Dear Future Freshmen,
High school may seem really scary at this point. Trust me, I know.
I remember the first time I ever walked into WHS. It made my heart race and a huge frog began to form in my throat. I’ve never seen something so massive and intimidating in my life. Then I saw some kid with a full beard and I couldn’t believe it! So, I understand it’s a whole new place full of many people.
My advice is pretty simple. GET INVOLVED! It’s that easy. You’ll gain friendships, good relationships with teachers (who make really good references) and much more. There is literally so much you can participate in during high school. Find something that interests you and go for it.
Another tip I have is don’t argue with teachers, they always win. This is not a good way to get a teacher to like you, which is actually important.
Something else that is helpful would be do NOT make out in the halls. This is a big no. Trust me, no one wants to see that.
The most important thing to remember is to just have fun. Don't worry too much. There’s a happy medium between having too much fun and just being too stressed out.
There are always people to talk to if you are scared of high school, so just be open and friendly. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Believe it or not, we were all once freshmen, too.
