Hello, everyone!  I hope you are all doing well!

I'm taking a break from all of the homework I have been doing since I got home from school.  We're three weeks into junior year, and it's been so busy.  I've got some hard classes this year, and I know it's going to be a lot of work balancing schoolwork, work, social things, after school clubs, and college plans this year.  It's a little overwhelming, but I'm doing my best to work ahead and plan things accordingly, so I guess I'll see how everything goes.

Before I get back to my Physics lab, I thought I'd just tell a quick story about something that happened at work last Friday.  My co-worker (let's just call her Natalie for privacy reasons), who I'd only met two times prior to last weekend, decided to get me a really nice bike helmet.  I, like her, sometimes ride my bike to the store for work, and it came up that I didn't wear a helmet.  I used to have one as a kid, but then I just never got another one.  Laziness, I'm sure.  Or even just a disregard for precaution.  So last Friday, I was presented with this kind gift.  Natalie explained that she believed it was of utmost importance to protect your brain; she herself had even had former brain damage from falling off her bike.  Everyone at the jewelry store is so kind, so she had decided to continue that legacy.  I was really touched; I thought it was such a nice thing for someone who I barely know to do that for me.  It even goes with my pink bike, so that's a bonus!

I just thought I should share.  Kindness is a rare thing sometimes.  I really do believe the saying: a small act of kindness can go a long way.  I've made a promise now, that whenever I ride my bike, I'm going to wear the helmet, and protect myself.  For me.  And for Natalie.

Natalie is also just such a kind person.  She taught me some more details and notes about working in the jewelry store and I think I'm going to learn a lot from her.  Sometimes it's different learning from someone right out of college (she just graduated law school) rather than someone who is been in the business far longer, which I have been sort of doing.  Natalie told me she could answer any questions I have about college or careers, and I'm really appreciative, because I'm sure I'll have questions about those things in the near future.

Also, I read The Giver by Lowis Lowrey, and a book review is probably coming soon.  I could rant forever about that book.  And not in the good way, which is rare for me, because I usually love any book I read.  Right now I'm rereading the Divergent series and I know I like those books, so that's good!

Ah, gotta love life, right? (:

Have a wonderful evening!

Hey! My name's Michelle, though many people call me Diamond. I'm a 16 year old high school junior with a huge passion for literature and the arts. Music and videogames are another love of mine. I consider myself a part of many different fandoms including: Star Wars, The Inheritance Cycle, The Dark Knight, Warrior Cats, Spyro, & Minecraft. There's probably more to add to that list, and while I don't know everything about them, like my art and writing, I strive to learn and to get better. See you around!
