Quote of the Week

You will never have this day agoin, so make it count. 

- Landon N.

This day is a basic everyday motivation. To me it means always live the day to the fullest because you will never relive the day again. On Earth you don't have unlimitied days; your life is short because you won't be here forever, so make every moment count because you wont get it back. Make a memory each day to represent the life you are living. Everyday people should read this quote because each passing day is another day you don't have. My advice is to love life for the longest because people love you back and you won't be in the world for long so life now.

Quote of the Week: September 18

"Just because my path is different, doesnt mean I am lost." 

Gerad Abrams

This quotes relates to so many things; politics, careers, life choices, and in general life. So many people can relate to this quote because some people think if you dont pick the same path as them or its not the traditional path, you are setting yourself up to fail or you are lost. Many Politics can relate to this too, like abortion. Many conservative politicians think when women have an abortion, they are atomatically a killer or bad person. And that might be the case, but sometimes its not. Also, many people deciding to not go to college; people think they are lost and wont make it. But school might not be for them and if they did go to school they would fail and waste all of the money for nothing. This quote is saying just because people have different opinions and choices than you doesnt mean they are wrong or incorrect. It means they think differently and don't have the same mind as you, everybody thinks a different way and has a different mind.

Varsity won a straight set against Benson and won against Bryan; putting the teams season to 2-1. JV also won with straight sets against both Benson and Bryan, leaving their season to 3-0.

Quote of the Week

This quote totally relates to me. I am a person that worries a lot, like the future and the past. When I do things, I always think back to it and think what I could have changed and what I could have done better. Now, this quote is telling me to do the opposite, and I think its saying stop second guessing myself.

This quote, to me, means stop looking back, so you can move forward. If you keep thinking about the past and how to change it., like me, you will never be able to move forward. What’s in the past can’t be changed, you have to learn from it, to change. To move forward you have to think “forward” not back ward. Moving forward is what everybody has to do in life if you keep reversing you wont discover or learn anything.

Moving forward to your next chapter is an essential to life, going forward is how life works. Time is not on hold for you to look back. The world is moving forward without you and if you keep looking back, you will be stuck in the past.
