Flower Power

As soon as you start to see daffodils and crocuses pushing up through the ground, it’s a sure sign that spring is on the way (even if there’s still frost on the ground). Those are just the flowers leading the pack, there are also tulips, daisies and cherry blossoms if you live in a city with cherry trees.

Time and Temperature

The Spring Equinox (usually marked on calendars) is a pretty easy way to figure out when it’s spring. Remember the old memory trick for time change “Spring Forward, Fall Back”? Well the clocks go forward one hour as we go into spring, adding an extra hour of daylight to this beautiful season, and naturally the temperature goes up as well!

Animal Alert!

Flowers aren’t the only ones that come out of hiding during spring, after the cold of winter you’ll notice more animals out enjoying the warmer weather and greener environment, everything from birds and butterflies to deer and insects start making their appearance.

Rain and Shine

After the long dark winter, the first thing you notice about spring is the sunshine, although it’s the rain that truly brings out the beauty in this season, nourishing the grass and flowers. And of course, wherever there’s sunshine you’re bound to see more smiles!

An Angel You’re like an angel in disguise The words aren’t enough, I guess? I know, you need someone to take care of you who looks like an angel. I hope you are not having a hard time Because I’ll always stay there for you in your heart You can remember me as an angel or forgive me But, remember You’ll always stay in my heart.   Dark Night The night is dark… It shines just like you.. Just because you’re so beautiful… I always think about you… Day and night… Where are you? Are you in my dreams or in my heart? I’d cry for you loud… Just for your true love… You’re like an angel… I want you to stay in my heart forever… You’re my shining star… There are no brighter stars outside… You’re the only good lookin’ star… I always think about you.. Day and night…   A true lover I might have cheated you. I might have kept you in tears for leaving you. I know, I am not a true lover. But, I ask you for a second chance. I know that’d be a hard decision to make. But, trust me I will never do it again. I know, it’s a hard decision to make. But, trust me I will be a true lover for you. I’ll always grant my heart to you. Only for you to give me a second chance.   Say I love you Just to say I love you it never seems enough. I’ve said it so many times But I am just so afraid to say it. I might give you a flower But that won’t be enough. The only thing I can do is give you my heart. And say I love you forever and more. Thank you for reading my post! I hope you enjoyed the poems I made. –Dev

As you know, or maybe you don’t. The word ‘Mother’ is a very strong word, and in this article I am going to show you how strong the word is. So, what’re you waiting for? Let’s start. It is strong word for us, because why not? A mother is who takes care of us, who wakes us up for school and helps us out with our main problems. We’re always rude with our mother, but did we notice? They work hard for us, and yet we still act rude. We’re sometimes angry with her, but did we notice? She stays up all night thinking about us, so all we need is a mother who takes care of us, feeds us and of course she is always there to support us. I’m lucky to have a mother, because she is the best. That’s the word I would always recommend for a mother. Few days ago, I had a fight with my mother and she got very angry, and started ignoring me. She told me that I can use everything without her permission or even do things without her permission. I was like, I am free! I continued to do things without her permission, It felt really good. But, after that I began to feel lonely and I used to miss how she used to scream at me. I used to cry every night thinking about her, she never talked to me, even a bit. I knew the word ‘sorry’ wasn’t enough, I knew I had to do something good. So, I thought of writing her a letter of how sorry I was. But, I never wrote it because I knew that words do not have emotion. I stepped near her, said ‘sorry’. It was a emotional break down for me, I cried a lot, I missed her a lot. I regretted for the things I did to hurt her. I was like, that’s a terrible way to repay her, I was expecting her to forgive me and SHE REALLY DID! I was so happy, I broke down in happiness just thinking about her. The only thing I’d recommend is that, just don’t hurt your mother the way I did, because that is the most terrible I ever did in my entire life. The reason I hurt her with? Oh, well, I was not listening to her. She was screaming, still I was not listening to her, isn’t that terrible? She works the entire night, and that’s how I repay her? Even if she forgave me, I’ll still regret it my entire life. Thank you for reading my story, the last thing I would like to say is that never hurt your mother because she is the most important thing in your whole life. –END–

Yes. I do support Donald Trump; because he has a good leadership quality and I am sure he will become a good president. If he can be a successful business man, then he can be a successful  president. That's my way of how I see him as a president.

So a friend of mine told me try this new app called chatmonkey. I've never heard of it but I was bored and I had nothing to do anyway so I checked it out. And seriously, best decision ever xD. It's like truth or dare but without the truth part. You can earn respect by challenging your friends to do things  and if they accept, they have to record themselves while they're doing the challenge.    That same friend who told me about this app is also a guy with a big ego, always talking big that he's fearless and always showing off.  So I thought, this is the perfect moment to test if he's really fearless. I sent him this challenge:  'I dare you to sing let it go from frozen out loud in the middle of mcdonalds xD' and I gave him a deadline of 3 hours. AND HE ACTUALLY DID IT LOL!!! I laughed so hard that my stomach still hurts because the dude just couldn't sing LOL. But he got my respect tho for doing it.    If you're bored and want to have fun, check this app chatmonkey out! I don't know if it's on the iphone but it is on android. And you can add me on it if you want to. My username is mrCali :)
