Interesting art pieces from around the world

So, our school’s spring break has started! Although it’s only a week long, I am excited about sleeping in, and pigging out 24/7. But I haven’t exactly been in the ‘spring’ mood recently. Why? Because it’s snowing and it’s cold and it’s windy.

My friend during the summer. Doesn't the picture just shout, "GIVE ME SUMMER!"

Spring is supposed to be the season of warmness, flowers, and just the end of winter! But it’s been feeling just like an extended winter. By mid-march, isn’t it not supposed to snow? Well, a few days ago, we practically had a snow storm. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit, but not much. I’m dead serious. It snowed like it was the middle of January. The weather’s been growing a little warmer these days; I was pretty excited about not having to wear a heavy coat outside. But still – I can’t wait until summer. Short shorts, sleeveless tops, and flip-flops! (It rhymes, maybe I should write a poem)

As much as I love snow and rain…… Summer come to me! Come right now. Please?

I came across an interesting link today. http://youalreadyhavetheanswers.wordpress.com/ From here, you can download a PDF that has one quote and question for a day. Sometimes I’ll get my quotes from this nifty packet. Here’s the one for March 8:

“Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.”  -George S. Patton

Question: When do you decide the cost is worth the risk?

Before writing an answer to this question, I had to really think about it… And I finally came to the conclusion that you must decide when the cost is worth the risk by asking yourself, how often does this risk come along. If there is a chance that you could take the same risk another time, maybe when you’re more prepared so it wouldn’t have to be a risk, you should wait. Until you are totally ready to face it. But if the risk is a totally once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that may never, ever be given to you again, then you should definitely take it, without any hesitation or regrets, no matter what the costs are.

My little blurb on the quote/question of the day! What do you think?
