I want to make a difference in the world, and helping raise awareness for the pollution in our oceans is one of the ways I can do it

Keywords: {0}

I didn’t know much about the gravity of the issue that is ocean pollution before entering this alternative project and I was shocked to learn of how horrible this problem has gotten. I hope, my experience in this project conveys some of the messages that I wish more people would be conscious of. I think that the main problem with ocean pollution is that people aren’t aware of the consequences their actions can have on the environment, and how perhaps a decision they make now–disposing of a plastic item inappropriately, for example–can have extreme repercussions later.

I wake up anxious, angry, and on edge, and the people in my house don’t help, since their mannerisms make me feel isolated in my own home, like I am never invited to anything, and I don’t have enough money, they are making more plans than me, taking advantage of life more easily, ready to dive in with a full night’s rest, and yet I am sleep deprived and on edge, taking in the noise outside of my bedroom, not feeling as if I have space to call my own, unable to sleep in or make plans to be solitary, since the activity in my house is audible, and I wonder if the same problems will continue when I live on my own […]

My son is my sunshine. He really is making me smile, even when he frustrates me. His smile lights up my world. His questions blow my mind. He still gets piggy back rides from me and he loves them. His hugs are healing. He is so cute and adorable and I love his personality. I see in him his dad’s confidence and my insecurities meshed in one. We have been slacking on positive affirmations but I’m sure to let him know that he makes me happy every chance I got. I don’t play with him enough, especially during Ramadan because I’m so tired, but he has become so emotionally mature that he literally tells me “I want to spend time with you” and when he says that, I do, even if I’m tired.
