Connecting the Dots
So the lovely Nature Stick Man was lying at the beach reciting his favorite Shakesmorean poem when all of a sudden two crazy preteen girls jump out of the water and starting dancing to a Pit Bull song. Nature Stick Man was at a lost of what to do. He really didn’t want to be near the dancing girls but, unfortunately he was on a crowded beach and there did not seem any place for him to go. However, Nature Stick Man is quite the recycling junkie. So from the trash he found on the beach, he built a 10 feet tall tower so he could high up above everyone and not have to worry about all the people on the beach. Those girls could dance to their hearts desired and Nature Stick Man was able to recite his favorite Shakesmorean poem as much as he’d like.
This daily create asked us to take lyrics from a modern song and turn it into Shakespearean poetry.
I chose Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” but I only picked a small portion of the lyrics. This is what I came up with

Fortunately for me, I had this stockpiled on YouTube. My friend and I had very interesting dance moves back in the day.

The Ugly Side of my Happy Place
My happy place is the beach. The beach is beautiful, sunny, breezy, sandy, and just so much fun! But of course, with every great place, there is an ugly ugly underside. The beach can be unbelievably crowded depending on where you go like Myrtle Beach or Bethany Beach. It’s so crowded you cannot even find a place to put your stuff! It’s kind of ridiculous. Then people leave their trash on the beach. Why must people destroy these beautiful wonderful beaches with their disgusting trash? It’s quite infuriating. Beaches also have the potential to be dangerous at times. There are sharks, broken glass you can step on, the occasional huge wave that can break your back. I’ve actually been to a beach where the lifeguards suggested we do not swim because the angle of the waves was crushing people’s backs. They had five people hospitalized earlier that week due to these waves. One time I was walking down a beach at the Outer Banks and my boyfriend saw a shark right in the shallow of the water! We were walking right towards it. Thank goodness he saw it. The dangers above never really bothered me while I am at the beach. What has bothered me the most are the crabs. I HATE crabs, especially if you’re on the beach at night and they are everywhere. I can’t stand it. I was even bit by a crab while searching for seashells once. It was quite unpleasant. Nevertheless, I love the beach. I still believe it’s perfect even with all of its imperfections.
