Chosing HAPPINESS :D over miserably

In my school LEADERS, we have a week of intensive. Intensive is a one week of class, all day and we learn something new. (plus we get high school credit) My intensive obviously is about blogging and I’ve learned to blog by the help of my two teachers, Ms.Dunzelman and Ms.Schenck. 

Today my teachers made Nina and me to interview one of the intensive we have in school that connects to our topic in blogging. The intensive is called Eat,Pray,Love. They went to a two-day camping in Upstate NY, with no electronics for two days. ( I guess I would never survive there because I need technology) This intensive is about learning and finding yourself, get to know about who you are and not what other people may think about you. Today we went inside the class, to see what they were up to. They were talking about happiness. They explained that you can choose whether to be happy or be miserably, well in other words sad in life. ( people wouldn’t want that, right?) They back up with evidence, showing quotes and people’s life experience. Mr.Mears ( global teacher) and Mr.Ahmed (chemistry teacher) ask them to write a response with a quote, “What is happiness?” for them. I sit next to students writing and looking for evidence in their binder. I was going to interview them and ask them, but they were really concentrating on their work so I didn’t want to distract them with my question.

People may ask, how does this have to be connected in your blog?

Well, my answer for you is that there is a lot of answer.  There is a lot to connect about my love blog.  People should love themselves who they are and not what they may pretend to be. If people pretend someone they are not, other people will like the “fake” personality instead the real you. If you be someone who isn’t YOU, it won’t hurt other people but it will hurt YOU and only YOU. This trip made students think about themselves, find themselves and get to learn about themself. Love who you are, because you don’t have to be the same as others, you are UNIQUE. You should be who you are and not what people may say that makes you change, if they do they aren’t really your real friends. Don’t listen to them, follow your own path and you will be fine and won’t regret about it at all.
