Now I’m sure I mentioned this before: my innovation project. If you’re unsure what exactly it is I’ll do an overview and share what the whole experience was like. First of all, this project was thought up at the beginning of the school year. I don’t know how I thought of it; it just came to me one day in the shower. I think I was listening to the Taylor Swift song “Mine” and the music video of her underneath a tree with pictures hanging off the branches got my mind working. My partner (and friend) Lindsay and I knew we wanted to do something for other people. Something to make other people happy. Something someone hadn’t really done before. Something like the Giving Tree. *sorry for the low quality images of the tree they’re better on Instagram and Twitter, I promise*
I never understand why people become so jealous that they feel the need to bring others down. It’s okay to be jealous, but to a certain extent. You could want what someone else has, whether it’s a tangible thing or a state of being. You’re jealous that the spoiled girl in your class got a brand new car for her birthday, for instance, or her super attractive boyfriend. Or maybe you’re jealous that the person you can’t stand seems to be happy when you aren’t feeling very positive.
