(Sorry for the lack of posts.  I’ve been a little busy.)

Anyways, isn’t the weather just delightful?  *sneezes*  The pollen is flying through the air, bugs are biting, and every single flower and tree are releasing some sort of allergen. 

So I’ve been stuck indoors, and what do you do when you’re stuck inside?  Read.  Lots of reading.  If you’ve re-read all your favorites, you might just want to scroll through this post to find similar books to your tastes. 😉 Continue reading

A Day in the Life of a Homeschooler

So, apparently people like to read sarcastic posts about homeschooling.  And I love writing sarcastic posts about homeschooling.  Therefore, you get another homeschooling post.

It’s almost summer!!!  All my classes (except the dreaded math) are ending this month!!!  (Huge perk of homeschooling–all my classes end super early.)  That means I’m cramming frantically like the world’s ending  studying for all the tests and trying to raise my grades a few points.  That’s why this post is late.

Anyways, since people tend to think we homeschoolers sit around all day in their pajamas, hopefully this will dispel those myths. Continue reading

Me and Goals (aka, the love-hate relationship)

Let me say a scary word.  GOALS.

Ah, goals.  They’re shiny, impossible things that everyone wants to conquer, but they are kind of scary to because no one ever seems to complete them.

I have too many of them.  And yet I add to the on-going list all. the. time.  

Now, some people might say it’s good to make goals.  People tend to make goals during New Years, but February rolls around, and everyone has quietly dropped those goals.  (Except for the select few that actually keep those goals.  In that case, good for you.)

Here’s the problem with goals.  They tear me down. Continue reading

Top FAQs About Homeschooling

I’ve gotten tired of all the silly questions.  (If you’re a homeschooler, you know what I mean.)

So from now on, anytime someone asks me one of these, I’m just going to point them to this helpful list.  If you’re a non-homeschooler, do us a favor and read this list anyways so you don’t have to ask them yourselves.  If you’re a homeschooler, well, I guess you’ll just feel with me.

How To Write The INTJ Character (more than the villain)

paint intj

I‘m an INTJ, and I know several people who are INTJs.  I like to think I know a bit about this topic.  (Note, even if you aren’t interested in typing your characters, this may be helpful for any villain.)

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Myers-Briggs testing, INTJs are known as the planners, strategists,  and brilliant masterminds.   Consequently, they are often portrayed as the villain in fiction when they appear.  INTJs tend to express little emotion,  and their logic is nearly flawless, but why always put him/her in the antagonist’s role?  People often place the INTJ as the antagonist in their story.   This is wrong.   In the classic novel,  there is a corrupted mastermind who plans world domination,  or something equally damaging,  like cutting in line for coffee.  Along comes a rookie, who knows nearly nothing about the destroying-evil villains process, (Or how long the guy has waited for everyone to look in a different direction,)  and they find a flaw in the antagonist’s plan.  Ka-boom, brilliant mastermind with years of experience defeated by a novice.  (At the very least, the INTJ has to wait his turn in line for coffee.)

7 of the Best Fictional Couples

Story Time: English class, with my wonderful teacher.  (It’s a homeschool class, with maybe 20 students.)  We were discussing poetry, and the topic of conversation was William Shakespeare’s Sonnets.  One girl (obviously a fangirl,) cried, “I ship it.”  

My poor teacher.  She was like, “what on earth are you talking about?”  So the girl repeated herself.  “I ship it.”  My teacher had no idea what she was talking about.  No one really wanted to try and explain our craziness to the world, so eventually, my teacher gave up, and turned back to discussing people that were like summer days.Image result for meme ship and fandoms pirate

Writing Music Playlist

So, long time no see.  I’ve been drowning in school (end of year stuff) and haven’t had much time to make blog posts and such.  So, quick little post with a spotify playlist for ya!

And Happy Spring!  It’s either getting warmer or colder for you, depending on where you live.  Unfortunately for me, it’s getting warmer in the US, and I’m watch the trees turn yellow and fuzzy.  It’s time to break out the gas masks. 😦 Continue reading

My Projects

I realized that after all these goal related posts, that I haven’t really talked about my own goals, completed or in progress.  (Or somewhere floating around in the galaxy…)

If you missed the whole motivation saga, you can read them now. (The Best Websites for Keeping Writing Goals +Camp NaNo, What to do When Lacking Motivation to Write, Why We Write)

Otherwise, this post is going to be about my own writing stuff.  Expect lots of rambling. Continue reading

More Writing Prompts

castle

Hello there, let’s start with this little thing that I found on my computer.  Computers are full of surprises.  Things can get buried, and then they appear, and you’re like: “When did I ever make that?”  Happens to me all the time.

No one has ever explored the bottoms of the sea.  Mankind has opted to explore the depths of space.  It seems suspicious that we’ll explore the place so big that we call it “Space,” but we haven’t even seen all of our planet.

Well, they tried.  It just went unrecorded.  The mission was never noted anywhere, any evidence was destroyed.

Did that catch your attention? 😛  That came from a prompt I found somewhere, some time long ago.  Feel free to finish it, as I probably won’t get around to it for a while.  Onto the fresh, new prompts!  (And this time, they sorta are castle-y) Continue reading
