“Bees were swarming everywhere and a bunch of people got stung”

I think the worst part of camp was the food, but also, uh, some kid threw a rock at a beehive so for the rest of the days -- and it was like right when we got there. So for the rest of the time we were there, bees were swarming everywhere and a bunch of people got stung. Someone got stung in the hand and he was allergic to them, which, um, he didn't know. But it wasn't like bad, he just swelled up a lot. Like his whole hand was giant, even though he only got stung on his finger. And then someone got stung on the butt, and in the head, in the cheek, and in the armpit, which I feel like that would be the worst place to get stung. Someone got stung in the thigh, and a bunch of other people got stung a lot of different places. Yeah.

“He said he’d rather be at school for two days than go to camp”

And then the last thing I'm going to talk about is actually, um, one of my friends. Um, he hates waking up early, like he hates it, and, um, he, he's -- he was all negative about camp and he didn't wanna -- he didn't think it was gonna be fun and stuff. He said that he'd rather be at school for two days than go to camp, which is the dumbest thing ever. He said that camp was like a little bit above mid, like it was just a little bit better, and that school is just about mid. So I asked him, you know, "If, if camp is a little bit better than mid, and school is just mid, then how is, how is school better than camp?" And then he said -- yeah, so, um, yeah, so then I -- and then he said, "Yeah, so I would rather do the mid experience for about, um, seven hours for two days than have to go to camp 32 hours and have it a little bit above mid.” Which was just ridiculous that he even thought the camp was only a little bit above mid.

“My grandma spilled hot tea all over me.”

Today, I will be talking about a time that my grandma spilled hot tea all over me. So I was about one, and my grandma was babysitting me. My mom and dad were at work and I was over at her house, and she set her coffee down on -- well, her tea on a coffee table. So I was like just a baby, so I was just kind of crawling around and I hit it over onto me. And it spilled all over my stomach and chest and I got burnt. And it was, um -- then I had to go to the doctor. They had to put like a cooling rag all over my chest and stuff. And then, I had to get like a full body cast, pretty much, on my stomach and I had to stay at the hospital for like four days, just to make sure I would be fine. Then I came back home. There was -- uh, what was it? There was a bunch of people there with like gifts and stuff. My grandma thought it was her fault, but it wasn't. And she got us gifts. We got gifts and stuff, and then they all left. And that night I fell on my bed onto my stomach and it hurt a lot. So I had to go back to the hospital because my parents thought something was wrong, but it turns out I just fell on it and it didn't do anything. So we had to come back and other than that not much. After that, it just kind of slowly healed up. And I was fine, I think.

“We spent a couple days in Tokushima.”

Yeah, my aunt picked us up at the terminal and we went to, we drove to Tokushima, which is where she lives, which is where my family grew up and, yeah, and then we spent a couple days in Tokushima. We went shopping. I love shopping. I really love shopping, especially in Japan and Korea, like they have really good stuff. But yeah, we went shopping, we — last year, we went to the zoo, this year I think we maybe just went shopping. I don't know. It's been a month. Um, yeah. And then after that, my aunt drove us to this island in Japan — like there's a bridge, so we could, you know go on it. Um, and then, yeah, it's this little island. I forget what it's called. But if somebody said it, I would, I would know. And then she dropped us off at this hotel. And then we went fishing, and then some other Japanese friends that we know from America met us at the hotel. They checked into their room. We checked into our room. It was, it was fine. And then we went fishing. And then later that night, we ate the fish that we, we cooked. Like the hotel, they take the fish that we cook and, um, cooks 'em. We take — they take the fish that we caught and cooked them. Yeah, that's a mouthful.  Um, and, yeah, that dinner was very interesting. They gave us a lot of weird stuff including tomato jelly, which is the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted. I almost threw up. I do not recommend it, zero out of ten. Okay, and then after that, we took a bus to, to the bus terminal, we took a shuttle to the bus terminal, which is where we kind of parted ways. Because the friends went to Osaka and we went somewhere else. We went past Osaka to another town. I'm trying to remember... We took the Shinkansen to... yeah, to a hotel.

“I thought I might be able to cheer them up with some flowers.”

So, flowers have been a pretty prevalent thing in my life. I remember a long time ago, I read an article and it turns out that most men will not receive flowers until they die. And so I've always had that stick out to me, and that's why I like to buy people flowers. Like, if they're close to me or if they're just — I just feel like, I just want to buy people flowers. I love giving gifts. I always have since I was a child and so people know me for bringing snacks at school, and it just — I want to make people feel happier and I want people to look forward each day and know that they have something to look forward to every day. Because I know how hard life can get, and I just want to remind people that there's still good in this world. I myself haven't received flowers even though I've been a Boy Scout and I've done karate and piano, after concerts or after performing at karate, I haven't received any flowers. And I'm hoping that maybe one day, I'll be lucky enough to receive flowers before my funeral, but life is life, so whatever turns out will turn out. But I do remember three distinct times I've given flowers to people. So, back in middle school, I was hanging out with my friend and I saw that flowers were on sale. So I got these flowers and then I gave them to my neighbor becauseI know my neighbor was going through some stuff, and I thought I might be able to cheer them up with some flowers. And I heard that they kept them on their, um, like, their kitchen top. Like, they have like, a little island in their kitchen and they just placed it there until, like, the flowers died, I assume, and hearing that that they actually kept them actually kind of felt nice because, you know, I just assumed that they would keep them out for a while and then just throw them out, but they kept them there for their entire time. And then when I first started seeing my ex, I remember the first time I went to their house, I brought like a huge bouquet of flower- — well, it wasn't huge. I think it was moderately sized, at least, but it…

“After I finished the second series, I read the first series and it made so much more sense.”

Has there ever been a time you put the cart before the horse or did things in the wrong order because you were impatient? Honestly, no, I can't really think of anything.Oh! I read the Percy Jackson series out of order because I was impatient and I couldn't get the first book so I started--because there's like, you know, there's different series. You know, there's the first series, the second series, the third series. I started reading the second series. After I finished the second series, I read the first series and it made so much more sense.But like yeah, it's just, that was the first series that I got my hands on so I started reading it and um, I got kind of confused but that was fine. You know, I understood the storyline, it's a good storyline. But then I read the first book and I was like, "Yeah, that makes a lot more sense."

“We were gonna get a matching tattoo together.”

I have thought about a tattoo. Me and my mom actually talked about it last week. We were gonna get a matching tattoo together. We don't know what we're gonna get yet, but I kind of want either a heart that matches hers or her handwriting and it says "I love you". But I definitely wanna get something to match my mom, just because me and her have such a close relationship together.

“I prefer somewhere in between minimalism and maximalism.”

I prefer somewhere in between minimalism and maximalism, but I think closer to minimalism side. Because, I dunno, I don't feel like you have to use every single, like, inch of space and, like, room in your room, or in any room. I dunno. It just looks kinda clustered, but I have a lot of stuff, so it looks more on the maximalism side. But I'd like to live a minimalism life just 'cause it looks more organized, I guess.

“I’m still cheering to this day.”

"Tell us about a time that you tried something new and it turned out better than you thought it would."  For me, that was in seventh grade when I started cheerleading. I'm in 11th grade now, but seventh grade, when my mom made me do cheerleading and I've never done anything, like, even close to cheerleading. Maybe like a cheer camp once when I was, like, three or something, but I've never done anything close and I was so nervous that it was gonna go, like, really poorly and I thought I was gonna be cut from the team and then I found out that everyone makes it and I was like, "Oh my God." And then I just became obsessed with cheer, like, I - every - all the skills that we did, all the chants, even just cheering on the sidelines at the basketball games, which sucked at the moment, but like, I actually enjoyed all of it and it turned out a lot better than I thought and I'm still cheering to this day. I'm on the varsity team. So that is pretty cool and it turned out a lot better than I thought it would.

“I only set one alarm in the morning.”

Honestly, I only set one alarm in the morning and I wake up to that always, so I don't even have a snooze button. I actually turned it off because it got annoying. 'Cause I would always like mix up the buttons, like I would - I would mix up the buttons on my phone. So sometimes, I would click the snooze button, you know, and it would be really annoying because like eight minutes later it'd be like *mimicking alarm noise*, and then, yeah, it's annoying. But, well, I guess the reason for that is, like, once my alarm goes off, like, I know that I have to get up and I have to start my day. I have to get ready or I'm gonna be late to school, and I can't be late to school 'cause then my parents will kill me. So I guess that's kind of like my motivation to get up, like, I have to get up, you know, like I have to, I absolutely have to. So yeah.
