Who’s my audience?

Everything created has an audience. That’s what our English teacher told us one day. I thought that was obvious. Of course everything is created to show someone your hard work, I thought. He also said that things can be created or done for yourself. You can be your own audience. Mr.T made the whole class go outside and told us to identify the audience of the bell week posters. This made me think about the Tae Kwon Do tournament (California Open) which I competed in last week.

I’m doing alright, other than a bunch of stress from school and butterflies in my stomach from a tae kwon do tournament (California Open) coming up this Saturday.

She sings both Japanese and English songs, so check that out if you’re interested. Anyways, there’s a song that translates as “Letter~To the Fifteen Old You~” which is my favorite out of all her great songs and this song gave me tears when I realized the true meaning.

Most people don’t understand this. We all want to get out of the bad habit in our lives. We all think, “I’ll do that later,” or “I’ll start tomorrow.” And the truth is, they never do!
