Coca Cola!

I have always been and always will be a Coke fan. It is in my opinion a thousand times better than Pepsi, not only in taste but also in marketing and the company all around.

Coca Cola is the main sponsor for the Olympic Game, as well as a world wide known brand. Coca Cola is a brand that is known to put a smile on some one face.


Coke has always had some of the greatest banners and adds to represent their product. The older ones are amazing, and they show us that coke has been around for quite a while. As well as their christmas adds.


The bottles have changed quite a bit since the 1899, and to be honest I wish they looked the way they used to look.

Something awesome that I found was that Coke used to have Coca Cola coupons that entitled you to a free glass of Coke! that is so cool, its too bad that some things have changed.

For some, Coca Cola has been a part of their lives for the entire duration and for others it has never been introduced, but when it is introduced it is known to be loved.

So Im definitely a Coke guy. What are you?

You better sleep!

In order to stay in shape and not get ill, it is extremely important to sleep. When I saw this headline, I was like, “well duh, sleeping is important. I know that.” But as I read into this interesting research outcome, I found very interesting facts so you better read through this!

Research shows that people who sleep 7 to 8 hours a day have the lowest obesity index than anyone else. Compared to people who get 5 hours of sleep, their obesity index is 50% lower, and for those of you who get 4 hours of sleep, 75% lower. That means, the less you sleep, the higher the tendency to get obese.

But why? The reason is because of the unbalance of the hormones reptine and ghrelin. Reptine is the hormone produced by fat cells that controls your appetite, and ghrelin produced by your stomach increases your appetite. So, if you don’t get enough sleep, reptine will decrease and ghrelin will decrease. People who get 5 hours of sleep compared to 8 hours of sleep, they have 16% less of reptine and 15% more of ghrelin, which means it, increases your appetite and prefer higher calorie foods.

Lack of sleep is one of the biggest enemies to a diet, but it’s not too late. After a reducing sleeping experiment, the examinees took 10 hours of sleep for two days and the hormone balance got back to normal. Also, the rate of craving food got 25% lower.

So sleep well to stay in shape.

Airplane Car?

I was looking through the news on CNN and I came across something that in my opinion is magnificent. I read and watched an article about an airplane car.

This is a fully functional airplane that can travel up to 500 miles in distance, with the addition of being able to fit inside your garage as well as being able to drive on the highway and any other roads.


The woman in the video said something that caught my attention, she said that if they fly somewhere and the weather gets to be too windy than they can just drive back on the freeway! isn’t that just AWESOME!!!

I knew that eventually flying cars would become a possibility, but I didn’t think it would happen so yet. The world is definitely changing at a very fast pace.

I wonder what other crazy inventions will come up in the near future. Hopefully good ones.

Life’s A Beach.

Usually I have an undeniable, irresistible desire for Korean food or home.

But this time, it’s the beach.

The weather has been beautiful lately here in Ojai. I mean, how lucky are we to have summer weather in the end of January?

It started with the semi-annual sale at Victoria’s Secret.

Discounts on swimsuits and free shipping on orders over $25!!

So I bought one and it arrived last Monday but since I was unhappy with it, I sent it back. Now, I have to wait until February for the new one!

NOW ALL I NEED IS SOME SAND AND A LOT OF OCEAN.

But I must have patience because being at a boarding school, I don’t have many chances to leave and head to the beach whenever I want to.

I JUST WANT SUMMER!!

Sometimes life’s a beach.

A Time To Relax.

Cabo.

Ok yes I do live in sunny California but it’s still very exciting to be booking a holiday to somewhere hot. Somewhere with beautiful, idyllic beaches, great food and a lovely warm sea. The prospect of relaxing with absolutely no cares in the world is so appealing right now. Just one more thing to do, make it through senior year.

To some, Senior year may have been a breeze, but to me right now it is a struggle to make it through. No I’m not suffering from the good old senioritous. I just really need a break. Some people may say that your High School years are the best years of your life and they have been, don’t get me wrong. But right now I need a long time to relax and summer is just a little to far away.

Swimming in a clear ocean, snorkeling, diving in pools or just lapping up the sun on a inflatable lilo. All these are things that I love to do to relax but they all involve time. Time I just don’t have. Plus in Cali the water is just a little too cold.

Currently the bath has become my place of rest and relaxation. The bath is a place where I can clear my mind of all thoughts, close my eyes and dream that I’m lying in some luxurious sea. Unfortunately this dream is shattered when I step out the water filled shell into reality.

Bring on the summer and bring on a time to relax.

Worst Person #15-Dan Rooney

What? The long-time good-guy owner of the Pittsburg Steelers is a new “worst person.” The reason is because of the tenure of coach Bruce Arians, offensive coordinator.

It was reported that Arians was retiring after 5 years as the Steelers OC. However, about a week after leaving the Steelers’ franchise, Arians was hired by the Indianapolis Colts for the same OC job.

This drove myself and many other sports journalists to ask the question, “Why did Arians retire, and then immediately find a new job?”

The answer lies with Dan Rooney.

The team, led by Rooney, basically evicted Arians, but did not fire him. They simply forced him out of the job. They didn’t fire him, and he didn’t really retire. He was told to retire so that Rooney wouldn’t have to fire him.

Ya, it’s confusing, but I view Rooney as the ring leader.

What Holds Me Together

High above, amongst the stars,

God checked his watch,

and realized it was time.

Time to make a story,

my story,

mine.

He wove together a string of trinkets,

some rusty,

some silver,

some gold,

and some of precious stones.

Of those trinkets,

there were many places.

Houses and apartments,

studios

and condominiums.

Restaurants, schools, corners and alleys.

There was a bit of Mexico.

Koreatown, too.

Some wormy grass,

and golf courses where the deer roamed at night.

And of course,

tied closely to these homes,

was my mother’s cooking,

my father’s laughter,

my sister’s pranks.

And there were my fears.

My anxieties,

all intertwined with my passions,

my soul,

and whatever else that stirs me and moves me and lifts me..

My friends and enemies,

my lovers and ex-boyfriends.

Teachers, mentors, coaches, neighbors.

Mailmen, taxi drivers, pilots, a Marine.

There was much joy.

But,

there were also tears and hardship,

loneliness and strife.

Yelling and screaming,

punching and throwing.

The threads mangled and fried.

But soon enough,

God, with his knowing hands,

his fingers so gentle,

created a piece.

And those loose threads,

they all straighten out to create

one magnificent picture.

One that is unique.

One that is me.

mine.
