My Message to Freshman

 

As a senior in high school, I have a lot of experience. I know what it’s like to be a freshman and I know what my choices in freshman year has caused to happen up until now.

 

I realize that my choices as a freshman greatly impacted my entire high school career and to this day, I can’t decide whether it was a good thing or a bad thing but I do have some advice for you so this is for you. Read it and do with it as you please but do read it. Because if it helps even one of you, I’m glad.

 

As an upcoming freshman, I went to a brand new school in my area where I only knew a handful of people and when that school year started, I remember vividly how everyone sat with their respected schools. If you came from one middle school, you sat here. If you came from another one, you sat there.

 

It might take a while for this to change but there is an entire sea of new students and unfortunately, it will change and I was actually the first from my table to walk away. I met a boy pretty early on in Freshman year and as a kid who was boy obsessed but knew nothing about relationships, it was a really stupid move on my part. Obviously, when that relationship started, I moved to his table which caused a chain reaction.

 

Looking back to those first few weeks, my first piece of advice to you is to be very careful. Don’t just date the first guy that you meet simply because he’s cute. Be nice and be his friend but wait. Because if you end up regretting your decision, you will forever regret the moves following this.

 

During that time that I sat with that particular table, I met some of the best and funniest people that I have ever met, to this day and they are the biggest reasons that I think fondly of my Freshman year. I was one of two girls at the table but those guys were hilarious but unfortunately, when the relationship failed, I was to leave the table…

 

Which resulted in my next piece of advice, unfortunately that wasn’t my cleanest break up that I have ever had and of course, somebody followed me when I left. Well, two people actually. The other girl and one of the boys.

 

My second piece of advice is this, don’t ever date a guy from your ex’s friend group because a multitude of things happen. You get an insanely bad reputation, even though you didn’t mean for literally any of it to happen.

 

Next, the guy you started dating will end up choosing sides which will cause either bad blood between your ex and him or you end up with a broken heart. I, stupidly, made that mistake not once but twice.

 

Don’t do it. Nothing ever ends well.

 

This part is possibly the trickiest part to give you advice on and I have to tread this topic very lightly for many reasons but choose your friends wisely. Because while you might not realize it, those choices do greatly affect you.

 

Based off your friends, people will forever judge you and think of you a certain way even though none of it may be true. Friends are an important thing and it is a very good thing to make friends but be careful about it.

 

Befriend people but if they are bad for you, walk away and be comfortable enough to walk away because down the line, you’ll regret it.

 

Finally, my last piece of advice is that you join clubs. Find something that you’re interested in and join it, whether it be Sports, Gamers Club, Yearbook, History, or Spanish Club. Just join something because you will find amazing people that could be your best friends long after you’ve graduated.

 

I am not saying that just because you join one of these things that your high school experience will be the best, I will be the first to attest that I am apart of a lot of clubs and my high school experience has been fairly terrible so far. But you will make friends, you will have something that you love while you’re dealing with everything, and the memories that you make are not ones that you will ever forget.

 

I know that you’re terrified about what will happen, whether you’re worried about your friends or your classes, it is perfectly natural. We have all been there and we all know what it is like, including the people surrounding you.

 

So, have fun and be nice. You never know what will happen.

Ferrets: Truth, Myths, and Stories Alike!

 

So, I haven’t really had the chance to mention Apple, my ferret, in a little while which is actually quite surprising for myself as he has quite quickly became my favorite thing in the entire world.

 

Though, I had never had what people would consider an unusual pet before which has created a lot of surprising reactions. There is a belief that they are incredibly smelly, that they are vicious and violent creatures, and even some assumptions that they wont play with you and don’t make attachments.

 

So, since I have had a ferret and have my first hand experience to account for this fact, I would like to share some stories and dispel and prove some of the assumptions that people have made about these amazing creatures.

 

The first thing that I would like to discuss is their smell, which seems to be the main thing that people are against and since I will not only be talking about my personal experiences, I will also link a few other things for each section so that you have a few other people who agree with me.

 

Ferrets do have an odor though I can definitely assure you that it is not an incredibly strong one that you can smell the second that you’re in the same room as them, no, this scent is actually something you can only really smell if you’re holding them or if you’re around something that they enjoy such as blankets.

 

One thing to seriously realize is that dogs, cats, humans, and ferrets alike have their unique scents!

 

The myth that they are incredibly smelly mostly comes with how well you take care of their cage or environment as their scent can worsen if they are in the wrong environments and while I will admit that my ferret is descented, most ferrets are so I’m not really worried about it.

 

Though, there is a scent which is why I will be sharing a few posts that gives tips or hints as to what may be the problem (such as diet) and how to reduce it!

 

Ferret Smell

Ferret Odors

How to Reduce Ferret Odor

 

Now onto the complete myth that ferrets are violent creatures, ferrets have natural reactions to things such as pain and even can get a little rough when playing. A thing to understand is that ferrets naturally play rough with each other and if you got your ferret from a place with other ferrets, their natural instinct is to play like that and it is your job to teach them not to do things such as biting your fingers and toes.

 

Though there actually are stories of ferrets being harmful to babies, as ferrets instinctively hunters and are complete carnivores. Because of this, it is highly inadvisable to allow your ferret alone with any sort of bird, rodent, or infant. While it is uncommon, stories such as Carrie Waldo and her son do happen but it is important to note that they ultimately found the parents at fault.

 

If you have a child, don’t leave them alone with the ferret and this incident is completely avoidable and another thing to note if something as violent as this does happen, were you feeding them enough? Their digestive tracts do not last incredibly long (at most 6 hours) and get hungry fairly quickly so once a day probably isn’t going to work very well.

 

Did this ferret have an incredibly bad experience? Do you know what kind of life the ferret had lived before you got them, had he experienced anything terrible since then? Ferrets don’t have short memories and will remember things for a long time. If you hurt them purposely once, they will remember it for years to come. If you don’t trust me though, please do tons of more research into the matter and look at this post which addresses the same situation as earlier, Are Ferrets Dangerous Pets?

 

Apple personally does bite, the tiniest bite in the world that is literally tasting you to see what you are and then leaves you alone unless he gets too excited or you scare him but it is never in a “I want to bite off your finger” way but “I WANNA PLAY!” or “HEY!” way.

 

The finally thing that I would like to talk about is the assumption that ferrets do not bond with their owners and won’t want to play with you. While ferrets do sleep about 11-18 hours a day, if they are awake, they are playing and are very different from cats in that aspect.

 

If you’re personally noticing a lack of interest in playing, account for how long you’ve actually had your ferret. Some ferrets may take longer to want to play with you than others (though this majorly depends on the ferrets themselves!) Another aspect is, how much are you letting him explore? They are natural explorers and want to explore more than all else.

 

Finally, how are you playing with him?

 

Ferrets do get bored and sometimes simply wont react to things that have lead to them being bored, Apple finds the most enjoyment from chasing you or you throwing the ball so he can bring it back to me. He also has a ball bit for when he wants to gets inside and play that way. It ensures that he doesn’t get bored and becomes more willing to play with you when you want the attention.

 

Don’t believe me? 

 

The final thing I want to address is bonding with their owners. This comes to an important variable. Your ferret’s unique personality and yours including how well it gets along.

 

Apple and I got along from the very moment we met, playful and enjoying each others company which has caused a lot of bonding between us to the point that he has separation anxiety.

 

While his actions were not immediate, he has slowly grown to be more and more dependent on me. Immediate actions that I noticed from him is that he wouldn’t do anything unless I told him to do so.

 

My mom would try to take him out of the cage and almost immediately, he would come out and then go back inside if he didn’t couldn’t find me. It was like he didn’t want to play unless I was around and not two minutes later, I would be in the room and he would come running towards me.

 

Not only that but if he got tired or scared, I would notice that he would come cuddle up with me. If he was out of his cage for more than 20 to 30 minutes when he was little, he would come to my spot on the couch and lay on my chest until he fell asleep.

 

Another incident when he was a little older was him trying to get on top of my dresser (which is incredibly short) and a calculator fell on top of him which lead to him jump attacking me so that I would hold him as he licked my hand until he calmed down.

 

The funniest story involving him was after a sleepover at a friend of mines house, he hadn’t seen me in not even 24 hours and my mom had this video of him searching for me and then immediately going into his cage.

 

After I got home, however, he would follow me around for days and an important thing to note is that he absolutely despises water. He has hated water since the moment I gave him a bath and he tried to drown himself (he didn’t realize that if he just lifted his head, he would be able to breathe) and absolutely despises it.

 

Well, one day, the first time I was gonna leave the house since then, I got in the shower and he was out of the cage because there are no small children and the house is ferret proofed fairly well so he has a lot of freedom and so I got in the shower and he followed me in. Like he jumped into the shower and you could tell from his reaction that he immediately regretted his decision the second the water hit him.

 

He looked so awkward and annoyed by the water as he tried to find a spot away that I actually took him out so he wouldn’t have to deal with it but he just jumped right back inside. So, he still hated the water and wanted away from it but he still wanted me to be near him so you could practically see his little gears turning while he tried to figure out what he was going to do.

 

I finally came up with idea of showing him the shower curtain because then he wouldn’t be hit by the water but he would still be in the bath and he got so excited and immediately got behind and laid down but after a few seconds, he seemed to get upset by something so he reached one of his front paws out and grabbed onto my pinkie toe. (When I hold him, he often holds one of my fingers so this didn’t surprise me very much!)

 

So despite his complete hatred for water, he still wanted to be near me and even wanted to still be able to touch me so he held out of his foot just so he could. Not only that but if my foot got out of his reach, he would try to bite me so I would stop moving.

 

He faced one of his least favorite things just so he could be with me.

 

Now, I know, this is just one story but honestly, it’s my best story and if you don’t believe me with it, I guess I can just prove it to you by showing you this article which proves that ferrets bond similar to dogs rather than acting like a wild animal would.

 

Ferrets and Their Owners

 

If you’re using me to decide whether you really want a ferret, I highly suggest doing a lot more research as to whether that may be a good idea as there are a lot of personal factors and they do require a lot of time and maintenance.

 

Do a lot of research on the topic and watch plenty of Youtube videos.

ANNOUNCEMENT – PAPERBACK BOOK?!

 

So, recently Amazon has started to allow you to make paperback versions of your book so I immediately jumped on that bandwagon and after a few long hours of perfecting the book itself and the cover, it is finally ready to be revealed and is now open for public!

 

If you don’t remember what the story is about, here is some information of the story!

 

‘The White Butterfly’ is a story about a girl’s journey through the stages of a break up.

As she begins to go on a mission to understand her break up, she creates a stronger bond with her best friend Rose, and becomes closer to a childhood friend by the name of Chase Mathews, who she had recently gone estranged to.

This book teaches you that you can find love when you least expect it, that you can create a bond between all the tears, and sometimes, the person you’re truly looking for has been there all along.

It just took a long time to find them. This is the story of Belle’s breakup and how it was the start of a new story as well as the ending.

Read as you see her go through the stages of a break up, as well as the stages of falling in love. Along her ride, is the surprising relationship between a pair that once hated each other.

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus – Book Review

Book Title: One of Us is Lying

Author: Karen M. McManus

Publication Date: May 30th, 2017.

Rating (Out of Five Stars) : 4

Book Review

Now, when I was in Barnes and Noble and looking for books to buy because I had a hole burning in my pocket, my choices were surprising even to myself but when I chose this particular book, it reminded me heavily of Pretty Little Liars and the Breakfast Club, two things that I thoroughly enjoyed watching.

With this story, I must admit, you’re confused for a good amount of time and generally curious about everything going on which is probably why I finished reading it in less than a day (including three Starbucks drinks while I was still in Barnes and Noble…)

The basic premise of this story is that five kids go into detention, all of which having been framed for bringing a phone to class – though I do question if Mr. Avery was actually allowed to root through people’s book bags, that just seems insane to me and I am high school student. During this detention however, only four come out safely as Simon, the resident outcast has an allergic reaction from peanuts after drinking a cup of water.

Immediately, we know a very telling detail that Simon was basically Gossip Girl and told everybody’s business for everyone to hear and that all four of the other students were soon to be subjects in the upcoming update in the story. All of which having their respective secrets that seems to give a motive for why they would want to kill him.

But I am going to stop talking about the details of the book before I give away the whole thing and if I somehow gave it away during this review, I don’t think I would ever be able to forgive myself because story is a MUST READ.

This story handles so many important topics so eloquently and so brilliantly that I have never been happier to find such an amazing book which is surprisingly odd since the writing style itself was a bit complicated.

The story had a constant change in point of view which was important for the story as it wants you to think somebody specifically did it (and I was between the real person who did and somebody else the entire time!) But not only does it handle such amazing topics that are obvious from chapter one but so many more that if you’re into mystery, romance, or suspense, you need to go out and buy the book right now.

So, I am giving this book four stars, though if I separated between writing style and content, the content section would get five stars but switching between four people as much as it did, practically gave me a whiplash and I think there could have been a more eloquent way to handle the four points of views but all things considering, it was an amazing story and if any of you guys have read it, I would love to hear your opinion!

 

Don’t forget to give me a book review request (though it will need to be updated soon!) in the comments of My Book Catalog! And if you guys have any suggestions for a book you want me to read, please tell me!
