Spicy Boys

I went on a trip to Colorado.

That’s why I haven’t blogged lately.

It wasn’t really a vacation type trip. It was a camp. A Younglife summer camp called Wilderness.

We hiked in the mountains of Colorado for 6 days and 5 nights. We ate in a circle for every meal, and talked, and prayed and learned more about each other than I thought was possible.

It was a really hard week.

My social anxiety was at an all time high I think. It made it harder.

Having to share things, and listen to all those things strangers and friends had to say, and knowing that I had to hike 5 miles the next day, made it hard. I had 2 panic attacks during the week.

That’s okay.

My Patrol consisted of 2 male guides, 5 boy campers and their leader, me, and 5 of my “friends” and our leader.

The boys in our group were from Eastern Ottowa Michigan, which I guess is outside of Grand Rapids.

I don’t know what I am really trying to say. This was a week, and I thought it would be a lot crazier than it was, or harder.

It was hard mentally mainly.

The mountain that we peaked was beautiful though. I’m so thankful. It was beautiful.

Maybe my life has changed. We will see.

The Mighty Ducks

Another post about another movie franchise I guess.

I just marathon watched all three movies. SO GOOD.

To be honest, I think it’s just because I love Joshua Jackson (Charlie Conway, Pacey in Dawson’s Creek), but I also love how distinct every character is. None of them play the same, or dress the same, or say the same things. For child actors from the start, they were good.

I wish I could be like that, even it was my only film job ever. Just to be in a film franchise like that, to be like Marguerite Moreau- she played Connie Moreau.

I just thought it was so cool how their team had a girl on it, I mean Julie and Tammy played with the ducks but Connie was the only one who was with them the whole time.

I wish I could have seen what happened to characters, like Tammy, or the Hall twins after certain films… BUT I am glad that most of the kids did come back.

For instance, Adam Banks-whom I love.And Guy Germaine-whom I also love.

I really appreciate how little sense this post makes.

That’s all for now I guess.

Watch The Mighty Ducks. Epic films. Epic story.

The Hunger Games

Recently, I have watched an excessive amount of Hunger Games and Catching Fire clips on Youtube.

I could just watch the full movie on a website somewhere but instead I just watch clips. It’s really bad.

I haven’t seen Mockingjay, partially because the book confused the hell out of me- and I figured the movie would be worse. I bet it isn’t. I will make my cousin marathon watch it with me later this summer. I’m gonna add that to the bucket list.

The concept of the Hunger Games is so cool to me. Also Ceaser Flickermann. Love. Him. So. Much. Peeta Mellark. JOSH HUTCHERSON.

ALSO, if you haven’t already WATCH the movie RV. Josh Hutcherson is so funny in it. Mainly because he is young and like attempting to be a cool street kid or something.

This is such a bad post I don’t know what I am thinking.

Goodbye.

Shannon. Somewhat.

I don’t know what I am doing.

This is my blog.

One day, I will pay for a domain, but that day is not today. I am a high school senior who recently lost her wallet and just broke up with her first real boyfriend and who has no money.

I had a job once for like 3 months and it was really nice. But I have school. And stuff.

Anyway.

I am a high school senior and nobody has ever told me I could write a screenplay.

I feel like that, in itself, is me being held back from my potential. Like, I could write a screenplay, but that has never been a viable option for me because for starters I have no clue how to write a screenplay. Like what format do I put it in, the only one I know is MLA. I don’t know like the complicated version of MLA, the MLA Advanced or whatever, the one you select on noodle bib for citations for any assignment, I genuinely have no clue how to do that.

Back to my screenplay. Well, not my screenplay because I think for something to be a screenplay it has to contain like relevant material and be somewhat I don’t know of the format that could someday be made into a movie. That’s what a screenplay is right? Like the script and details and plot and all that of a movie? I don’t even know that. Someday I could be a screenplay writer except WAIT I don’t know what it is.

I could go to four years of college, and get a degree in something fancy or probably basic- but not something like finance- and move to Hollywood or somewhere screenplay writers, or are they screenwriters, live. I could live there and become one of them, which apparently I need a degree  for because every job you need a college degree. Anyway, I will write screenplays that are really bad for probably 3 years and then I will write a good one. Maybe. And it will be made into a movie. Or whatever. And some high school senior is going to watch that movie and not give a single fuck about the screenplay writer. Actually, they probably don’t even know what a screenplay is.

This is potentially the worst thing ever written. Anyway, I have very few friends to be completely honest so I will probably post again soon.

Also, It has become very relevant in my life that college is a thing, if you didn’t realize. I have to start working on my common application. That’s some scary shit.

My “Random” Blog Theme

My blog has no theme, as of right now. I will probably not come up with one anytime soon but I felt the need to inform you.

This will be a basic blog with basic posts about my life and other happenings. I don’t really care who reads it because I don’t care about anything enough to, you know, REALLY get into blogging. I think that’s a problem.

You know, I should be able to be committed to something big. Bigger than watching movies in my room until 2 am. Bigger than going to school for x number of years.

I should be able to commit to blogging. I should be able to commit to playing a sport. I should be able to commit to being a part of a club, or a school play, or whatever. I can. I will.

There are so many things I could be really good at, I just have never gotten the chance to figure it out because I have never actually been committed to them.

This summer I am going to try new things. I will make a bucket list per say, its a new page, and keep updating it, on what I want to do this summer, and who I want to be going into senior year of high school.

I guess what I’m trying to say is this blog will be random, because I can be a little random. That doesn’t mean that I want to find my identity in being random. By that I mean I don’t want to be random. I want to be Shannon. Or at least somewhat.
