This is the 2nd entry in the Questions category! This category will basically consist of me asking a question, answering, and getting answers from other bloggers and possibly even you!!

This is the question: If you could choose one thing to change about the world, what would it be?
If I could change one thing about the world it would be the world’s inability to help each other. Why can’t humans just work in unison to help others in need? Why can’t we just come together and think of a single, unified plan to stop hunger or homelessness? We can’t do this because of greed and because we are oblivious to what happens to our neighbor. Humans are greedy, they keep the best and give the worst. We are also oblivious because we live in our own world where the only person that is important is ourselves.
Can you imagine how many things we could accomplish if we all worked together? Let me put it into context:
You learn that Jake, one of your classmates, is going through hard times. His father is unemployed, they owe months of rent, and his mother is sick in the hospital. They aren’t doing great financially.
You decided to help him. There are at least 20 other children in your class. If their families each donated at least $1 to Jake’s family.
20 children • $1 = $20
In my school, there are at least 80 classrooms.
$20 • 80 = $1600
This means that this person gets at least $1600. This could change his life forever. Now imagine if 1% of the world’s population donated at least $1 to a certain cause (hunger, homelessness, cancer research, etc.) 70 million dollars. That’s a 7 with 7 zeroes behind it.
1% CAN GIVE 70 MILLION!
Imagine what 100%, 50%, or even 10% can donate. We could help so many people. Then again, this is just money we’re talking about what if we donated our TIME and PATIENCE? What could we accomplish?

“If I could change anything in the world what would it be? I would change the education system. I know that sounds like a typical student thing to say, but after all we are the ones in school.
So what would I change about the education system? I would like creativity and imagination to come to life. Imagination so strong that technology is made weak. Creativity far beyond finding a comfortable way to sit in those hard wooden desks.
Inspire youth. Bring back that exciting kindergarten feeling we once had.
Math is important, and I know that. I’m not saying to subtract math from the equation but instead add life. How will a person use math in their life if they don’t want to live?
Let’s help students find a reason to live, a reason to love what they’re doing, and a reason to come to class.”

“Have you ever felt like the most beautiful woman in the room? The woman everyone turns to stare at as she enters. I have and there is no better feeling.
I know what it’s like to feel like the ugliest in the room. I know what it’s like to feel as if everyone is judging me by the size of my body. I know what it’s like to feel as if everyone is staring at me out of disgust. However, I also know what it’s like to feel beautiful.
To feel as if everyone of my flaws is perfection. To not care if someone is judging me.
After years of struggling with self hate, body shaming, and negative body image, I want every woman to feel confident and sexy in her own skin.
I want woman to showcase their uniqueness and be proud of who they are. Beauty is not one size. Beauty is in every shape, every flaw, and every feature we have as individuals. It’s time that we start flaunting our beauty.”

“I would change the world so that there was peace. Stop fighting. No Isis. Just peace. People shouldn’t fight each other because there are other ways to solve arguments and if they are fighting for no reason to just stop. Killing innocent people isn’t right. Peace in the world would make it such a happy place. Happier than it already is for some countries. In getting peace on the world it would mean no racism. That isn’t fair either. We are all the same but we just look different an believe in different things. Is there a problem with that because there shouldn’t be.”

“With modern developments like women’s suffrage, the legalization of same-sex marriage, and the civil rights movement, society likes to believe it’s become progressive, but have we really made any progress at all? We still discriminate against cultures we don’t understand, dismiss religions we don’t follow, and hate people we don’t know. If I could change one thing about the world, I would change our inability to empathize with other humans. Imagine what the world as a whole could accomplish if all the energy wasted on hate was instead used for progress? What a world it would be.”

My Past Few Weeks
These past few weeks have been extremely busy, sometimes stressing, but otherwise very fun.
On the 15th was the Homecoming Dance at my high school on the 18th our Parade and on the 21st our Homecoming Game!
On the same day of my Homecoming Dance I celebrated my sister’s birthday and this past Sunday we took her to Chuck-E-Cheese!
Then the on the 22nd I participated in Carolina’s Quinceañera, an event we had spent almost 2 months rehearsing for. It was honestly so much fun and I’m so glad I was able to form part of her court!
So yea, these are some of the reasons to why I haven’t shared anything with you guys for a long while.
Thanks for everything guys!
