Just had to share this. I actually like Diet Coke more and only drink Mountain Dew every so often.

A good idea to try. Looking for writing prompts is a good way to start this.
Agreed. I'm going to try some of these ideas, even if it's not every single day.

I just saw on Twitter that today is World Poetry Day. I never knew about this until today. From Wikipedia:
World Poetry Day is on 21 March, and was declared by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1999. The purpose of the day is to promote the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world and, as the UNESCO session declaring the day says, to "give fresh recognition and impetus to national, regional and international poetry movements".
It was generally celebrated in October, sometimes on the 5th, but in the latter part of the 20th Century the world community celebrated it on 15 October, the birthday of Virgil, the Roman epic poet and poet laureate under Augustus. The tradition to keep an October date for national or international poetry day celebrations still holds in many countries. It is still 5 October in the UK. Alternatively, a different October or even November date is celebrated.
So in celebration, I decided to share a poem I read earlier this year (from this website):

Some of this I agree with. I did hibernate somewhat this winter, both because I was sick and because it was cold and raining and I was really tired.
|You Are Hopeful|
You choose to see the upside of everything. It's how you survive and thrive on this crazy planet.
Winter doesn't get you down, but you do slow down a bit when it's cold and dreary. You appreciate the time to hibernate.
You enjoy having the time to reflect and be calm, but you're always happy for spring to come around again.
Spring is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts for you. It's time to bloom again.
Spring makes you excited to explore and live life fully. Each new bloom inspires you a little bit more.
