I can still make explosions
I swear I'm not a fire setter, or an arson, that's not what this post is about. I repeat: I do not set things on fire for pleasure.
Recently I've been so inspired by people my age. It's amazing to me how looked down upon teenagers are, when I'm pretty sure the people who are making the most positive impact these days are people in the demographic 18-24. Also, a lot of people my age have just been taking the reigns on their life & doing what they feel & not what they're told to do. Travelling, and becoming the people they want to which I just find so inspiring! The bravery of my generation is just amazing.
-For example, the two young men who run the Jacksgap youtube channel recently raised over 100k for Teenage Cancer Trust. (How amazing is that?!)
It's always been a dream of mine to be able to volunteer in another country, and help people.
This year my friend, Domo & I were trying to go to Costa Rica to do a volunteer experience but sadly were not able to raise all the funds in time. We'd really still love to go one day though, so hopefully next year it will happen! And I'll get to cross other things off my bucket list as well.
So yeah, I've just been feeling really happy for my demographic getting some positive press for once, and inspired. It's a reminder that I, too, can still make explosions.
And remember that you can as well! You never need a reason to help others. :)
Do you have any causes you're passionate about? I'd love to know about them and why.
Thank you for all your sweet comments, and all the lovely responses you leave! They're a pleasure to read & truly do make me smile. :)
(BTW I've been sick for the pass couple days & I still feel horrendous. Feel free to feel sorry for me. Thanks)
