We're off to see a movie...

Hi all you Bloggers out there! It's me Tzivya. Very soon, in like a couple minutes my friend and i will go see a new movie called "Twilight". She read the books and really liked them. I've never read them because they are really not my type, but I heard it was filmed in one of the rainiest places in America, and as most people who read my blog should know by now is that, I like rain. That and my friend asked me to go with her. So I shall, and maybe when I come back I will tell you what I thought of it.

The Happyness Post

Hi all you bloggers out there! I haven't written in a while because, well I didn't have much to write about that was interesting.
But I found something kinda interesting this morning. It was a frozen EGG! seriously. Then my poor mommy and sister had to go out in the crazy wind, to go to school, just so they could teach little children how to read. ^_^
But I bet your asking..."what does this have to do with happyness? are frozen eggs your source of happyness? Or watching your poor mother and sister go out in blistering weather?"
no it's not 'cause that would be Schedenfrued, which is a german word meaning "pleasure from other people's misery." which is something that happens alot in sitcoms, and cartoons. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's just annoying. But Rebbe Nachman said you shouldn't get laughs by making other people feel bad. Which I think is nice, there are alot of other ways to be funny without being cruel.
Sometimes it's really hard to be happy when you are so sad. But Rebbe Nachman said it was sooo important to be happy that you should do anything to be happy, even being silly. I'm not sure I could imagine a Rabbi acting silly but, i'm sure amongs themselves they must be sometimes. I've learned alot from Crossing the Narrow Bridge but I like the happyness chapter the best so far. So whenever I feel bad I try to do alot of things that make me happy. So I've made a little list, it's not in any order, just in order of remebrence.
1. I say Perek Shira, 'cause it makes me feel better reading all the pretty verses the animals say to Hashem.
2. I listen to funny songs like Animaniacs or Veggietale or alvin and the Chipmunks.
3. I read a new Mystery! Right now I'm reading Wuthering Heights which isn't a mystery, but when I go to the library I'll get more mystery's to read.
4. I'll watch something that makes me happy, like HSM or Animaniacs, or some really old comedy show or movie.
5. Alot of other stuff I do is if I haven't done Davening yet, I'll do it to help myself be happy.
6. I'll dance! I love to tap dance but I'm not too good at it. Mostly I just run up and down the hallway. Or I'll knit. My mommy just taught me how to knit and when it get's bigger i'll post a picture of it up here! I also like to make people happy by making them laugh which makes me happy to make people happy which is...good. ^_^
If I think of anything else I'll post it up. But in the mean time, if you ever feeling down just try to think of all the things that make you happy. With some practice, it might get easier and people will say, "Look at him/her, there so happy! that's what I admire about them!" Which is a wonderful thing to be admire for.
Now I will go and eat oatmeal, with lot's of brown sugar which makes me happy when I eat it on a cold day like this. ^_^

It's Tzivya and her first day at Friendship Circle...

Hi all your bloggers out there. This week, Friendship Circle started out again. It's a very nice program where young adults volunteer with special needs children and become their friends. I think it's a beautiful idea and I am very proud to be a part of it. This week, I was introduce to my friend, and it was they're first day at Friendship Circle as well. I was able to talk to their parents before hand and learn a little bit about them. I hope that I can make them feel comfortable and have a good time for the next four weeks. Sometimes it takes a while for them to get used to you and accept you but when you have done it it's a wonderful feeling to know your doing something good for them by being their friend.
The rest of my week compared was rather uneventful. I found my lost i-pod but it was just hiding in my backpack. I learned some new songs on the piano. One is a very nice jazz piece. I like jazzy music.

The 44th President of the United States

Hi everyone out there. As you know we now have a new President and it is Barack Obama. My brother watched the elections all night along with my mother. She felt very patriotic that night and was proud to see the progress America has made. We now officially have the first African American president. It's definitely a historic year.

We all also watched McCain's speech and we thought it was really nice and eloquent. I know a lot of people are disappointed he didn't make it as president but at least we all know he is a real American hero.

Now to everyone who is freaking out about the new president I have only one thing to say to you and I read it in Perek Shira, it's what the wild goose, and duck say and it's the truth: "Cursed is the man who trust in human beings, blessed is the man who trust in God and God shall be his assurance. Trust in god forever and ever for God, is the strength of worlds."
You should have faith that God will protect us no matter what.

It's 11:40, I should be asleep...

But I should do alot of things. Today, I saw something really funny on Youtube. It was a cartoon video of a girl named Beth crashing the High School Musical movies. It was sooo funny I couldn't stop laughing. You should really check them out.
Well as everyone knows the PHILLIES won! Which entitles me to my own world series shirt. It's very comfy and warm and rawther fashionable. I grow more fond of it each minute. I have a cold this week and I blame it on my sister only mine BH" is not anywhere near as bad as hers but she is feeling much better. I am soon going to start postin a story I'm working on for my friends. It's just some fun random drabble about a club we made up and my blog title might make more sense after it. I want to be a writer, so what better way to start then right now with the public. I hope I can put them up soon!

Well, Goodnight Everybody!!
