lily the poet????

hello, I’ve decided to share a poem I wrote a while ago that isn’t a very happy poem and I don’t think it’s that good anyway, but here it is. it’s short, so this blog post will probably be short, too.




what did you think? was it good? what do you think the meaning is?

HAHA just kidding! that isn’t the real poem. the real one is below, with a picture:


snow cone man


big, strong hands handed

the perfect moon of ice

a cold paper cone for a cold paper girl

she said thank you like she was singing

the blues

sad he thought

he was the big man behind the counter

and he had no words he wanted

to say something

to assure her don’t worry it’s alright

you probably won’t ever feel so sad

or be so blue

as the guy in my freezer



genius hour project… how did it go?

here is a little reflection on my genius hour presentation and what I think about it.

first of all, the topic I researched for genius hour was hypnosis, and how it works, how to hypnotize someone, etc. I chose this because it was something that greatly interested me and I was curious how it worked. however, once I delved into the internet tutorials and Wikipedia articles, I discovered that, once again, Hollywood has failed me in that it made hypnosis look super cool and magical, when really, it’s just another form of sleep and you’re just so relaxed that you’re really easy to persuade.

of course I tried to hypnotize my dad, and it went really great (he was feeling relaxed, I was giving him super relaxing scenes to visualize, etc.)  until the first command, when he just stood up, claimed to be hungry, and left. oh well.

this may be interesting to some, but for me, it was plain disappointing. but at least I now know how it works, even if that didn’t really help me grow as a person or help the community around me in any way. I mean, how can my world be helped now that I know hypnosis isn’t voodoo? my curiosity is satisfied but the world still has its copious problems. it was kind of a waste of time, and maybe that’s why I didn’t get a good grade; I was no longer interested.

next time I’ll choose something more interesting and fun to play with like slime (a borax concoction). I’ll probably make a video about it, too, because then I can be absolutely sure I don’t go overtime. and I’ll do different colors and cool sparkles to make it less black-and-white boring. how fun, blobs of sticky color will help planet Earth, I don’t know–perhaps it will make people smile, because they’ll like playing with it while the video is going, maybe brighten their day–but it sure is something that I’m interested in.

one last thing: here are some copyright-free images of hypnosis I should have added to my presentation: demonsundialbunny

I tuned my ukulele upside down. It sounds bad.
