I played in a tennis tournament yesterday that went really well. I feel like I’ve been struggling a bit lately to feel confident in my playing, but yesterday helped boost that. I may have won three of my matches and lost three of my matches, but everything I learned will help me improve my actual game as well as my mental game.
It’s also really awesome that fall is starting to actually show up on the trees here in Colorado. We had a nice, rainy day this week and I got to wear a cozy sweater and feel all bundled up. Winter is definitely my favorite season, but fall comes in at a close second.
Anyways, I’ve been able to do a lot of writing in my AP Lang class and we recently were able to write poems based off of pictures we took of words throughout the school. Here’s what I came up with. Enjoy!
No one can make you inferior without your consent
You don’t need a reason to help people,
Learn your weaknesses and fears.
Embrace them, then nobody will be able to use them.
Everyone is a genius,
so be kind and love others.
Your silent presence is more powerful than a million empty words.
You are worthy.
Sorry for such a short post this Sunday. Poems are fun to write and when you have an idea of what you want to write, they’re quick and easy to get done. Gotta love writing! 🙂 Have a great week!
The season of summer will end on Tuesday this week. Time flies by! My sister had this poem on her website not too long ago and I thought it would be good to use for this occasion. Here’s a poem to celebrate summer’s end, enjoy!
The season of school vacation and fun,
And the big and bright, big sun,
A time to relax and play,
Longer is the length of the day.
Walking on the beach,
Or eating a juicy peach,
Biking on a mountain trail,
Or aboard a cruise about to sail,
The grass and trees are beautiful and green,
When camping it’s a beautiful scene,
The thunder rumbles and the lightning crashes,
There are tennis matches and 100 meter dashes.
And even when the summer is gone,
It never stays away for long,
And even though the tan lines fade away,
The summer memories will always stay.
Goodbye summer, hello fall. I hope you all had a wonderful summer and look forward to the upcoming season. I hope school is also going well for all of you that are in school and you’re studying hard and having fun. Have a good week!

Fall is here and it’s finally that time of year when the leaves change into those beautiful, warm colors of red, orange, and yellow. It’s the time when the days get colder and the air gets crispy. Don’t forget the pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving and football!
All of those wonderful things that autumn brings reminded me of a poem I wrote not too long ago about fall. Enjoy!
Leaves are falling to the ground,
Making colors all around,
The wind is light and cool and crisp
The sky is foggy with chilled mist.
The plants have begun to go to sleep
To hide away from winter’s creep,
The smell of baking pumpkin pie
As the geese take off and freely fly.
This time of year brings warmth and joy,
The leaves crunch beneath me like a broken toy,
Summers memories shall now be survived,
And welcome fall, it has arrived.
