Bubbles

Spring is in the air! It is nice out today, so as a break from homework, my  friends and I decided to go outside and enjoy the weather. We spent some time tree climbing, and then broke out the bubble wand. I’m so excited it’s finally starting to feel like spring. The fresh air is so nice. So is acting like a child. Climbing in trees and bubble blowing are such innocent, carefree activities. It sounds like a dorky thing to do (ok it is) but it really relieves some stress by just being a goofball. Try it!

Bubble!

In lieu of the bubble adventure my friends and I had, I am going to share a poem I wrote a long time ago:

Bubbles
Float Endlessly on and on and on
I know we will make it there alright
Despite the blinding lights
Luminous allure pulling us in

We were all just bubbles
Passing the time
Finding our places in the universe
Will you tell me where is mine?

Let’s all be young again
Gliding gently down
To get the sensation
Nothing is wrong at all

But bubbles don’t mean anything anymore
Just a pocket of naivety
Surrounding our innocent forms
They must have all broken apart

Bubbles blown in our youth
Bubbles popping in midair
Now that we have learned the truth
Bubbles are gone forever

Happy Saint Patty’s Day!

The luck of the Irish? I found this four leaf clover last summer.

In celebration of St Patrick’s Day, I took a little time this morning to learn about the Irish culture…  well sort of.  I’m far from an expert on Irish culture, but here are some tidbits of Ireland I came across this morning:

  • I got a 50 on the National Geographic Ireland quiz…but now I know a little trivia on Ireland’s geography, folklore culture, and tourism. Take the Ireland Quiz.
  • Want to learn how to speak with an Irish accent? Watch this VERY informative (ok, not at all, but very random and funny) video:
  • One of my favorite poets is Irish poet W.B. Yeats. I am also a huge fan of Irish author James Joyce, especially of his novel Ulysses… and while it is a very, very difficult read… I think he is a  genius.
  • Finally, here is some beautiful Celtic music in concert:

I know that’s only a very brief list of some things Irish…. (And since I’m not legal in America, I won’t talk about beer…). If you have any cool Irish links or facts, comment with them here! :)
