After a long and hard working school year, I finally finished my first year of high school. This past year has been a very inspiring one, and I am happy to say that I have grown so much and experienced so many new things and places. I have been inspired to make my life a little more interesting; simply reading a book, writing down my thoughts, or traveling to new places around Los Angeles with some friends. Summertime is one of my favorite times of the year, because I have the ability to accomplish these things and more without having to worry about tests, quizzes, essays, and more. Although it’s only been a day of summer, I already feel like I’m making my life a little more interesting, so why not share some of my thoughts and ideas with you.
Write some stuff down. I’ve tried so many times to keep a journal, and every single time I have failed. I either lose it or just forget to write anything, then it just disappears with the other 15 somewhere in my room. My friends and I visited Muji, a store on Mane St. in Venice, and we bought and decorated these simple notebooks. If you don’t know what to write about, try this out.
Add some new smells. While visiting Muji, I stumbled upon the greatest invention ever – an aroma diffuser. Being a fan of essential oils, I was so excited when I saw this; who wouldn’t want the smell of lavender or grapefruit to fill their room. This is probably the best invention ever made.

Listen to some new tunes. Music always gets me inspired.

Your Side Now – Trent Dabbs
Make You Better – The Decemberists
Age of Consent – New Order
I hope these suggestions and ideas help on achieving an inspirational and passionate summer. Sometimes it’s good to make life a little more interesting.
