Saving our planet

What do you do to try and stop global warming? We all feel a tiny bit of guilt when we think of our lights sitting left on in our homes but how many of us actually try to stop it?We love our dear planet in it’s summer glory, winter elegance, spring beauty and autumn joy, if it weren’t for our planet we would all be dead. But what about that time , a time where our planet will be flooded because of the damage to the ozone layer, our ancestors or maybe even the younger generation of today will be left to face an extreme situation.

I’m not going to tell you to change oyur lifestyle dramatically because I’m pretty sure your happy the way things are so here are a few tips I use on a general day to day basis on how to save my planet.

  • Switch off your lights.When it’s summer and you have enough light coming through the windows do you need them on. It’s not a hard task and once you get into a habit it comes naturally.
  • Take out your plugs. Of course you don’t want to have to plug in your oven every time you use it but if you don’t use your CD player or your iPod dock all the time then take the plug out. Don’t just switch the switch off because did you know power can still get through so unplug it only 2 secs more effort for a nicer world <3
  • Use roll on deoderant. At least try it  because the spray stuff completely makes holes in the ozone and that’s not good. If you can’t use roll on, try not to over excessively spray it!
  • Don’t leave your phone to power over night. I have trouble with this one because I want to have it when I go out in the evening and when I wake up in the morning and then of course I have to have it for school. When your watching TV just plug it in the nearest socket or charge it whilst your having your evening meal. Or charge it when your doing your admin (it’s probably not best for someone to distract you whilst your working.
  • Try to have more eco travel. Have you ever considered walking to school or to work? If walking is not an option then what about a bus? Either way it means you(or your parent) don’t have to drive !
  • Local food. You don’t have to check all your food from the weekly shop to find the origin but if you see carrots from your country or carrots from  China, pick the ones from your country.

These are simple small little things but they do make an impact, we are a huge movement and we can save our planet by doing small things. Susie xx

Teen fiction

Teen fiction is infectious.

You find or are reccommended a book,you read the book,you reccomend the book and it’s spread. You end up reading tons of books like it and before long that’s all you’ll be reading.

That happened with me,walked into a bookstore and saw Twilight . My friend had read Twilight and had reccomended it to me. My friends at school had no idea about it yet,they were still mulling over the 9-12 books and I bought that book,I walked out the store with twilight (if you don’t know yet what it is click here)I read it on holiday,I avidly read this wonderful book that was so dark and romantic.I couldn’t put the thing down. I loved twilight,the first book I mean. I recommended the first one to my friends at school and read the rest happily.I love the 1st book of twilight.It was about vampires

I read the Fallen Series and loved it too.It was dark,it was romantic and I loved it.It was about angels.

I read I am Number 4 and loved that too.It was set in the view of a guy and it was like non-geeky

sci-fi.It was about aliens.

I read The Hunger Games and loved it. I liked how only a tiny bit was focused on the romantic side of it and that the main character isn’t a feeble maiden in distress but a suvivor and a warrior. This book is totally irelivant to the subject,I just wanted to put it in here. ;P 

However the love for ‘I am Number 4′ ,’Fallen’ and ‘Twilight’ soon wavered when I tried to read The Vampire Diaries. It wasn’t necesseraliy that book in paticular it just made me realise that the books had similaritys. It’s always a new person in town. The male tends to be supernatural. The girl and the supernatural,super strong,super sensitive guy become a couple. There is another guy who comes along to try and win the girl over.The other guy just happens to be the males enmy.And of course to female stays faithful to her lover. Come on writers!Write something different!

How did I do with this piece?What are your thoughts on the books above?What are your thoughts on repeative story lines?Leave your comments below or on your page. Susie xx
