The return of the Places I want to Visit has arrived! This place doesn’t even seem real to me when I first saw the pictures of it. But, it’s beauty is perfectly carved out, and the first picture you will see is one of the coolest things I think I ever saw. Call me crazy but it looks like a UFO beam of light entering an opening within the canyon.

I found some quotes online, and thought it be a cool post to have my analysis about them. There are so many quotes but I selected only a few. I really enjoy quotes as well because they not only get the point in only one sentence usually, but they are never that hard to understand in my opinion.
“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”
– George Bernard Shaw
My view: This quote is so true in many ways. I’d rather be the person who tries to do something, and fail at it, than not do anything at all. Even if I wind up making mistakes or not accomplishing the task at hand, I have tried. It’s all about how you learn from these mistakes, and turn them into strengths later on. A life spent doing nothing is a mistake in itself.

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
My view: A simple quote, yet it encompasses over seven billion people’s problems. We all make life harder than in needs to be, and I don’t think there really is a solution to this issue. We’ve let it get to the point, where a complicated life is the norm.

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”
My View: This is such a true quote, that really targets the concept of the circle of life. One thing ends, and another begins. It embarks on examples such as grass being eaten by a grasshopper, which gets eaten by a rodent, which gets eaten by a snake, which in turn gets eaten a bird, whom dies, and supplies nutrients for the grass to grow. Even something so complex, which can be separated by time, still can come together.

I found a journal I wrote in middle school, about a year ago in my house. It’s so interesting to see what I wrote, and compare it to how I felt now. I must say, I was kind of proud to see some of the things I wrote back then because maturity wasn’t at a high in those days. Anyways, in that journal I found a Math poem I had to write for a Math class. It was an interesting assignment because it didn’t have to do with numbers, but instead turning math terms into poetry. Now, I wrote this in 6th grade, so bare with the spelling and other errors. There definitely is a good amount, but it’s not that hard to read. Anyways, without further ado…
