In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

My Weekend

On sunday, I went to Venis beach with my friend and her friends. Actually, first we had lunch, then we headed for the beach. We walked along the boardwalk and my friend kept looking at the jewlery that was on different tables. There were some interesting people there, some odd and some normal looking. Then we came to a gathering and I was wondering what people were looking at. After trying to figure out what's going on, I noticed that there was a man doing a funny performance for money. That explains it. Then I lost my friend and looked around and wondered how I would find her. Fortunatly, she's the kind of person who yells your name when she can't find you. I followed her voice, found her, and we continued walking. The other two girls were somewhere else.

Venis beach prides itself on freedom of expression. On one area of the boardwalk, there were a bunch of dry erase boards with liberal messages galore, next to the tables where people were selling things. And passerby's are reading this stuff and some probrably believe it too. And I'm not talking about the usual issues, this stuff talks about conspiracies and stuff. There was also a Jews for J table which at first looked like a pro Israel table, but after I looked at what the piece of the paper handed to me said, I figured out what it was and put the flyer in a trash can.

After walking a little more, my friend bought a soda and I bought a hershey bar. Afterwards, she was looking at Jewlerly again and when she was done, I suggested we go look at the people roller skating. We walked towards that area which looks like a round skating/dance floor and after standing for a few minutes, we sat down on the grass and enjoyed the show. Man, those skaters can really dance. After that, we decided to find where the other girls are, and after cell phoning them and agreeing where to meet, we found them and walked back to the car.
