Okay, so for today’s post I’ve decided to put down some quotes. Some inspirations of my life.
You see, at our school you always have to carry around something called an “agenda”. It’s supposed to just be a notebook that you write down your homework in, but it seems to be more like a passport or a driver’s license at schools now. You cannot go anywhere without your agenda without getting sent to the principal’s office or something worse. It’s completely crazy. It’s also crazy that our teachers always wonder why they get so torn up and covered in gum wrappers and doodles and duck tape by the end of the year. Well anyway, in our agendas each week there is an inspirational quote in the top corner of the page. They usually say things like “Don’t give up,” and “Keep going”. I guess they just put them there to try and get us up in the morning, but no one ever reads them. I try to, but they say the same thing every week and I never know who said them. So, at the beginning of this year, I started to put my own quotes in my agenda. I would cross out the old quote and write down something that I said or something that someone else said that I actually thought was important. I’ve written one down for every week of school (besides vacation). Now it is summer and because we only have 3 days of school, my agenda is completely filled up with these quotes.
So, I am going to share with you my agenda quotes to see if you are inspired by them, or if they are just boring and you’ll scribble all over them. It doesn’t matter; I have done both many times.

“I’m living for the weekend. I’m living for the night. I’m living for every day that I have left behind. It’s alright. I’m living for the good times.
