About The Transgender Military Ban…

7/27/17
Hey guys, welcome back! Alright, you’ve already heard the news. Donald Trump banned anyone who is transgender from serving in the military and there is a problem with that. A problem that I can best express in the email that I wrote to the White House in which I voice my opinion. 

Good Evening

My name is Dani ****** and I am a soon to be freshman at ********* ***** High School. I am reaching out to you today because I would like to speak my mind regarding the recent transgender military ban. I was absolutely appalled to see that the leader of our country would commit such an act of discrimination. Even though I’m not transgender, I was deeply offended by the actions of the president. I do not believe it is even remotely acceptable, no matter what gender, race, sexual orientation, or other identity, to prevent people from willingly serving this country. Growing up I was taught that this country was all about “liberty and justice for all” and I’d always believed that. If I’m not mistaken the pledge of allegiance that I recite along with the rest of my class every morning at school does not say “liberty and justice as long as you are a straight, white, cisgender, male”. The recent actions against the entire LGBT+ community are, as I’ve said, unacceptable. This country has it’s issues, but those issues can not, and will not, be solved through discrimination of any kind. Especially when that discrimination is directed at an already extremely vulnerable group of people. I hope you take my opinion and the opinions of countless others into consideration and reassess your recent decision. 
Thank you for your time. 

Now I have to give a huge shoutout to Lyss for inspiring me to take action. She texted me earlier today saying that she wrote to the White House and I decided, “you know what? So will I” 

It’s one thing to say that a decision made in our government was a bad one, but changing that decision is another thing. 

Fellow Americans, it’s time to stop wishing and waiting for change and start making change happen. If we don’t do anything about the issues that effect us, those issues will only grow. 

We are the next generation of politicians. We have to show that we care about what is going on in our country. 

Let’s not forget that the government works for us. In a republic, the people call the shots. We have the power for change. We have the power to make our voices heard. There are ways that you can get involved. 

I will not stand by and watch one person make the rest of the world think that this is how America works. This is not how America is. I have faith that our generation especially will not stand for this. 

I’ve said before that I’m not a proud American. But I only ever said that because I didn’t realize that I had the ability to change that. 

If there are issues you care about, research and find out what you can do about them. 

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

How I Get Past Creative Blocks

7/8/17

Hey guys, welcome back. Today, while I was watching some YouTube videos, one of the creators mentioned having a bit of a creative block where they weren’t filming videos because they just couldn’t figure out what they wanted to do. And that gave me the idea to make this post.

I’m quite a creative person and as someone who likes to share my creations with other people through things like blogging, for example. That makes a kind of pressure to keep creating, even if people aren’t demanding that I make new things, I feel as though I should be creating new stories, drawings, posts that make you think, etc. This of course means that sometimes I run out of ideas or I just lose the motivation to create.

So I have compiled a list of things that I do to get past creative blocks.

1. Get Inspiration From Others

There is nothing wrong with taking inspiration from other people. Obviously, don’t copy their idea, but if you read someone elses blog post for example and it just makes you think, “Wow, that was really good. I really want to write something like that.” then that’s fine. I do this a lot, if I ever feel like I have nothing to write about, I read other people’s posts and then eventually I get an idea of my own.

2. Take A Break

If you’ve been staring at your computer screen for an hour trying to write that essay, it’s probably not going to come to you. So, turn the computer off, walk away, and do something else for a while. Give your brain a break for an hour and then come back and try again.

3. Put On Some Background noise

I always have something on in the background when I’m writing blog posts. Sometimes I have music but most times I have a YouTube video on. In fact, I’m watching a video right now as I’m writing this. For whatever reason, it helps. When I’m doing homework I even have something on in the background and it makes it easier for me to focus on the task at hand.

Well that’s it from me today. I hope you enjoyed and if you try any of these out and they help you, let me know. Also feel free to comment any other tips that you may have. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of your day or night.

See ya soon!!!

Not in the mood

So hey guys right now im really nauseous and upset.

1. I’m upset because I went to Dani’s party today and these girls were there. Now I hold nothing against them and they apologized but what I’m upset about is their stupid idea. Now me and my three other friends at the party went down the street to our other friends house. And we were ahead of everyone, so to make us wait for them.. They took MY phone from MY bag, and said that they cracked it. I knew my parents would kill me because I have cracked my iPod 4 times and my iPad. And I was so scared they were gonna be upset at me and make me pay with the money I saved up my whole summer for vidcon. So I get such bad stress, anxiety, and nervousness and I burst out in tears in front of my friends. I was so embarrassed and they will never let me live this down. I’m just really pissed at what they did. Like imagine you standing there crying into your sweater as your friends try to comfort you and then these girls who you vaguely know come over and say it was all a joke. And now your friends go each second your with them, “Hey I cracked your phone Liss.” 

I just don’t even know what too do right now. I’m in sort of a crisis and I’m so upset it’s not even funny.

And 2 why I’m nauseous is because I ate a pizzarito (pizza burrito) and I don’t know what happened but my stomach reacted so negatively and made me feel sick.

So I’m not in the mood for anything and to top it off I have mounds of homework.

Happy Hannukah guys.

Party?

Hey guys today i’m going to hang out with my friends at her house because my mom is having this sort of party thing there for her product she’s selling so this blog will be short.

Dani is also coming which is good news. And, a few other of my bestest friends are coming too!

BAD NEWS I JUST GOT MY FRIEND UGH GOD WHY NOW?!

That’s why i was crampy all day ugh god I hate these times. Well good news it wasn’t near christmas!

Also that kid gave me that note in class called me his best friend numerous times this week and gave me a high five out of the blue and asked my teacher for me to be his partner.

I have come to the conclusion hat he likes me.

God why me? I want to be his friend but it might come off wrong. So I’m so stuck between what the hell to do!!!

We also found out today in chorus we are singing hello by adele for our winter concert song. It’s okay i guess..

Drama Club

Hey guys at the moment I wanna talk.. so drama club at my school started up and I’m in the play. So it’s gonna be harder for me to get blogs out. Not in December I’m talking about February and march and possibly January too. So don’t hold things against me if i’m a tad late. (9 or 9:15)

Just wanted to tell you that before I go and do all i need to and leave you guys hanging wondering.

“Is Liss dead?”

No i’m alive don’t worry and this is just a heads up!

In other words I think I am screwed.

That kid who I think has a crush on me yeah well i’m still on the verge of knowing that for sure but tell me if this seems like something i boy would do if he liked you or just really likes you as a friend.

He passes you a note in class saying,

“I think we are going to be partners for the next activity!”

Does that come off as anything?

And my friends already came up with my ship name. Ugh my life in a nutshell.

Oh by the way! At 11 o clock last night I made a fanfiction of two of two teachers in my school who are really tall and short. I am on chapter 8 so far.

anyways that’s all stay tuned for the blogmas blog!

Do you like me?

Hey guys today I’m gonna be talking about this boy in my English class who sits in front of me. 

He’s always talking to me and shown signs that he likes me. Although I have mixed feelings about him.

NOW I DO NOT HAVE A CRUSH ON HIM!!! I like him as a friend

But I’m not sure if he wants to be friends or has a crush on me. On one hand he says some stuff normal people who want to be friends do not say (ex; Liss is the angel of the class,Putting his hand out to shake my hand then him trying to bring me in a hug, etc.). But then again he has a lot of people who are his friends who are girls and I don’t know if he likes me.

He’s really nice and I want to be friends with him. But he’s also pretty annoying at times but I pretty much have no guy friends except for the exception of family younger friends and like two boys in my school.

So I feel like why not try to be friends with a nice guy and not a stupid idiot? (He’s a nice, annoying idiot) 

Hey you only have one life so well we Will See!

-Liss

Why do I feel like this?

hey guys so today I went to a store for a comforter and Christmas stuff and I am christamassed out!

Snoopy wearing a Santa hat shirt, Oscar the grouch wearing a Santa hat pants, a red warm winter blanket, checkered slippers, and I wreath night light!

But that’s not the idea of this blog the idea is that I ate some onion rings and by some I mean 3 rings. No big deal right? 

WELL MY STOMACH IS JUST GURGLING AND KILLING ME!!!

I’ve decided that part of the 90 day challenge is eating the healthiest I can so I’m gonna start eating a healthy big breakfast, my lunch is pretty healthy so I’m not worried, and a smaller healthier dinner.

My friend said she would die for my body but I don’t understand why. Honestly I have no boobs what so ever, my legs are huge, my butt is decent I’ll give it that. 

I know this is hormones but why do I feel like this?

Ugh I hate teen years. But hey that’s pretty much it. 

I also have a question do you guys know ANYTHING about meditation or yoga?

I’m starting this winter and I need some tips, pointers, anything would help.

Anyways I’ll try extra hard this week and it’s a short week so praise the lord.
