Make Some Bubbly!

Sometimes I wake up on the wrong side of the bed. After a long, stressful week with very few hours of sleep, Saturday morning did not start off well. Everything that came out of my mouth was bitter or sarcastic, even when I didn't mean for it to be. And being the only child that I am, all of my venom was directed to my poor mother. So naturally, I had to make it up to her in full.

I'm very impressed with my idea, and maybe you can use it for a good Mother's Day surprise treat.

After vacumming and dusting my parents' room, I proceeded to clean their bathroom and draw her a warm bath. But this, of course, was not enough. So I found this recipe online for homemade bubble bath--I've been into homemade items like this: lip gloss, head bands, face masks, etc. While it doesn't look beautiful, it makes your skin feel very good and did just the trick. In the words of Sylvia Plath, "I'm sure there are many things that a good bath can't cure, but I can't think of one."

It's quite an easy recipe:

  • 1/2 cup body soap (I used Aveeno since it's not strong scented, and it's supposed to be good for skin)
  • 5 teaspoons honey
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • a little water
Mix all this together, pour it into your warm bath, put on some relaxing piano music (Maxence Cyrin is my favorite), and enjoy!

Good Evening!

      Welcome to my world. I'm Hannah. I'm just your average, ordinary, every day teenager: wake up, go to school, suffer through band practice, do homework, and go to bed. My life so far is not extraordinary, but I'm working hard to make it so. I occasionally surprise myself by doing someting daring, but mostly I try to do good. I know what you're thinking, "this girl wants to be a writer, and she's already making a grammar mistake?" Think about the sentence. I want to do good. The word well is an adjective. Good is being used as a noun. 
      Books can do so much good in a person's life, but I'm not at that point in my success yet to say that my book has done any good. I do good by acting in my community, serving those that need help. I challenge you to do some good in your community. Go to the park on this three day weekend and pick up trash. Find a local non-profit agency that needs help and donate a couple hours of your week to them. If you really want to help, organize a food drive or a fundraising event. There are always people and places that need help, and you could just be the one to do that. Yes, you are one person. One person can make a difference. 

       A quote to live by: "Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can." ~John Wesley
