Pop! Yourself

You know those awesome little Funko Pop figurines that are sweeping the nation right now?  Well, now you can make a Pop! avatar of yourself online!  My friend Clyde showed me this the other day because he saw it on Facebook (which I don't have).  So I went online when I got home and played around with it to make one of myself.

Yesterday and the Day Before

I missed another two days for the A to Z Challenge, but for good reason.  I've been sick the past few days.  Apparently there was a stomach bug going around school and my brother, sister, and I caught it.  I feel bad for my parents - it can't be easy having all three kids sick.  At least we're all old enough to be home by ourselves.

Vegetarian (Why I Became One)

Hi, I'm Eric and I'm a vegetarian.

So it seems like taking on a vegetarian or vegan diet is what a lot of people are doing these days, and for a number of reasons.  For the most part, people are against the cruelty animals go through to produce meat for us humans to eat - which is a pretty good reason if you really look into that subject.  Others start these diets for health benefits, whether they want to just start eating better or if there's some kind of food allergy/irritation going on.

Soccer

Soccer is my favorite sport... obviously.

I've been playing since I was about four years old, at least.  I might have played with a soccer ball earlier in life, but when my brother and I were four, that's when we started playing community soccer with other kids our age.  From then, we stayed in community soccer until we got into middle school.

Running Man

Running is my preferred form of exercise.  I can go for miles sometimes and not even realize it.  My runs are a good time to clear my head or sort out my thoughts - it all depends on the time of day I go.  I prefer morning runs when it's cool out, but not cold, so winter usually means I go later in the day or I run on the treadmill.

Pineapple Pizza

You either love it or hate it.

I personally love it.  I always feel like I'm in a tropical place when I'm eating pineapple pizza.  It's lighter than having it loaded with vegetables and it's still a (somewhat) healthy option to have.  I think pineapple pizza is underrated, and those who don't like it are just afraid to try it.

Oops, I Missed a Day

Well, to be honest, I figured I would've missed a lot more days for the A to Z Challenge by now, so I think I'm doing pretty well.  Yesterday I was just having a hard time coming up with a post for the letter 'N' and by the time I eventually got home after being out with my friends after school, I completely forgot about it.

Mood Music

Music is awesome.  No matter what kind of day I'm having, I can always find a song that will make me feel better.

Library Love

I've mentioned before that I've been using my library more often as a part of my goals for this year.  It's going well, I'm there most days after school for a number of reasons.  Most of the time it's just to get away and have a quiet space to read and get homework done.  But now, because I love my library and the service they offer, I've started as a volunteer.
