The Coffeehouse

The Coffeehouse

I smelled it, and knew it.

It hung softly in the are, the deep smell of



I felt it, and knew it.

It was warm and worn, the chair’s



I saw it, and knew it.

It was swirling twirling, the coffee’s



I heard it, and knew it.

It was a splurging surging, that machine that made



I tasted it, and knew it.

A smooth strong earthy flavor of



I knew it, and knew it.

I liked all those

Scents, Feels, Sights, Sounds, Tastes, and Thoughts

Meow! Meow!! MEOW! MEEEEOOOWWWWW!!!!!!!!” 

That is what I woke up to this morning. At 4 in the morning, I new my orange tabby cat, Ross, had been left outside the whole night in the rain! I was tired, so tired, but the weight of my guilt for leaving my cat outside in the rain was heavier than my eyelids were, so I dragged myself out of bed to go get my kitty.

Ross is an indoor/outdoor cat, so him sleeping outside wasn’t too unusual, but sleeping in the rain was most obviously out of character, especially when the fact that he is a cat comes up. He actually does sometimes sleep outside though, and for the most part, when he spends the night outside, he waits by the door for you to come get him in the morning, so last night, as I stumbled groggily down the stairs towards the door, I noticed Eleanor, my dog, had heard Ross’s nonstop squealing emanating from the outside too. Unlike me, she was wide awake. As my hand gripped the doorknob, and I looked through the glass into the blackness outside, I was fully expecting to open the door and see a sad, wet, cat awaiting rescue. Instead I spent half an hour searching the perimeter of my soggy lawn. Suddenly, his cry was audible once more, and as I knew he wasn’t on the ground somewhere, my eyes wandered upwards, and there he was, wet, sad, but there… on the roof!

Pros and Cons of Coffee


If your parents have ever told you not to drink coffee because it may stunt (stop or slow) your growth, tell them it’s a myth ( politely, they are your parents, respect is called for), because it is! Many of the early trials testing the safety of coffee were incorrect on a large scale, becuase the participants were smokers, so coffee won’t give you heart disease, smoking will. Coffee can actually lower your risk for getting heart disease, Parkinson’s disease, and some cancers even! It does all of these things even in a state of decaf! Speaking of decaf and non- decaf, non-decaf coffee gives you a boost of caffeine. Before I researched this I was ignorant to how coffee gives you this boost of energy, but how it works is somewhat simple. The caffeine in coffee isn’t what is giving you energy, all it is doing is causing your adrenal glands to power up. This means that the energy stored for fight or flight sequence is used up to keep you focused and alert throughout your day. This could be a pro and a con. For instance, if you don’t have a healthy, nutritious meal to go with your coffee, the energy your excreting doesn’t have any fuel to push it out, this can cause headaches and migraines, sudden pulses of pain all through the body as it tries to find the nutrition to lach to that caffeine. But if you eat a good meal with it, coffee can help you wake up and go along on your day without tiredness pulling you down. A major con that you need to be aware of is when your at the store buying coffee grinds and buy the cheap, worse brand, just one “ bad bean” in that bag, may give you headaches for days! One more major note is that when you add sugar, artificial and non artificial sweeteners, half and half, all of these results are twisted, the health benefits only apply to black coffee. So if you are a coffee drinker, the next time you drink a cup a joe, remember these tips!

All About my Book

I’m reading The Flash by Barry Lyga. The Flash is about a superhero called, you guessed it, the Flash, and his merry band of crime fighting super pals. The Flashes team includes Doctor Caitlyn Snow, Cisco Ramon, Hairisson Wells, Detective Joe West, Central City Picture News Reporter Iris West, and a few others. The Flash’s superpower is super speed, and because of his super speed, he is able to vibrate through solid matter, travel through time, throw lighting, and much more. 

 The Flash, or Berry Alan, which is his real name, got his powers from a partical accelerator explosion that occurred in Central City, his hometown, 2 years ago and washed the whole city in dark matter, creating metahumans, which is what the Flash is, a meta human. These metas, for short, all have different powers such as super sonic screaming, controlling the weather, and more. Most of these metas have chosen the wrong path, and use thier gifts to hurt people, and it is up to The Flash to stop them!

I really like this video becuase it shows creativity, diversity, wierdness, and is staring my favorite violin player, Lindsay Sterling! When I’m playing the violin and I get really frustrated or bored of it, whatching any of Lindsay Sterlings videos makes me push forward to become a better violinist. Even if you don’t play the violin, it’s still a really cool video! If you want to learn more go to this site.
