It’s Time to Reinvent the Wooden Pencil.

Do you see those pencils? Each and every one of them was used no more than a day or two. Unless you carry around a pack of eraser tops to put over the cracked off eraser tops, those pencils are essentially worthless.

Pencil manufacturers need to either start to pack eraser top replacements with their pencils, use higher quality eraser materials or modify the metal rings of pencil tops to be less prone to pinching the eraser, which causes them to break off.

Don’t get me wrong, mechanical pencils have their own quirks too, but at least those pencils often come with replaceable erasers or retractable ones so that after those 2 days of use, you can replace them and continue using them.

Who am I kidding… The wooden pencil will never change. They’re cheap to make and because they are, when they break, we just go right back to the store to buy more. It’s genius!

Did I just write 156 words on pencils? Yes I did.

A picture really does mean 1000 words.

I could sit here for the next 7 hours typing out my past few days. Im sure I could even spend that time writing about the past few hours if I tried. But I found myself looking through a few old pictures, and by that I mean the ones from a few days ago, and I realized that you can live my life through the terrible pictures I take with my phone every day. I really do mean that. Watch.

I took a picture of my baby sister sleeping, something I’m sure she’ll hit me for when I show her when she’s 16.

I took a picture of the clouds that were below me. I took a picture of the pile of tissues that laid beside my bed when I was sick for 5 days straight, in bed and unable to make the tissues to the garbage.

I took a picture of my friend sleeping on the plane just in case he decides to blackmail me.

I took a picture of the radioactive boxes of medicine being put onto the plane just because of the cool logo.

I took a picture (or tried) of the signs that said “Do not leave the Edward Jones Dome for there is inclement weather outside” But really the sign did not speak with such diction at all. I mean, it was a sign… So how could it speak?

I took a picture of the intricate 4 pieced paper airplane that we made out of sheer boredom.

And yet, if I posted these photos on facebook, the caption for all of them would probably be #YOLO becuase you really do live once, so why waste the time writing a caption?
