July Wrap Up (and llamas)

july wrap up

So instead of having these weird update posts at random times, I’m going to do a monthly wrap up/update posts.  Doesn’t that sound nice.  So people will actually read these things, I’ll try to keep it interesting and give mini reviews of stuff, or interesting blog posts I’ve seen, music I’ve been listening to, etc.  🙂   Continue reading

30 Song Challenge

They say the key to a teenage girl’s heart is through her music.  (Actually, I don’t know if they say that or not, but I said it.)

Anyhoo.  Since you guys have no idea who I am apart from a random girl on the internet, maybe this will help.  (Note: I changed some of these because they were weird or I didn’t have answers for them.)

This is a challenge that’s been circulating the internet, not a tag.  So If you want to do it, do it!

#Hello2017.5

I like making sarcastic posts.  This is one of them.

Recall, if you can, to all the posts around the last week of December/ first week in January.  If you can’t remember, I’ll tell you.  There was lots of “Goodbye, 2016, you were an awful year.”  And “Hello 2017!  I have resolutions and goals and you’re going to be an awesome year, not like 2016!”  Do you remember now?

Yeah.  I got a little sick of it too.  After all, years are just a celebration of making it once around the sun.  Like, YAY!  We made it around again!  I wasn’t too sure that we’d make it this time!  And  by the time 2018 rolls around (it’ll be here before you know it) everyone will hate 2017 and applaud 2018 just because.  

So I got thinking.  (Always a dangerous business.) Continue reading

IT’S SUMMER!!!!!!!!

I have a pressing question.  What do Australians do?  Do they start the school year in September, and then work through the summer (our winter) then get their summer break with snow?  Do you start in April and stop in November?  What happens?  If you’re an Aussie, please comment and tell me because summer without swimming and flip flops sounds sad.  (Of course, it could just be a plain answer, like you start in the same month as pretty much everyone else.) [Edit:  An Aussie was kind enough to give an answer in the comment section. 🙂 ]

But if you’re reading this, that means that I finished school, which to me, is the definition of summer. Continue reading

Summer and Swimming

Hiya people.  It’s almost summer!!!  [It feels like it already, (already had the first sunburn of the season) but we have to wait a few more days for it to be official.]

Sorry for lack of posts…  I won’t even make up an excuse.  So saying, the schedule for this is going to change a little.  Haha, like I had a schedule in the first place… Continue reading

Historical Writing Prompts

Adobe Spark (9)It’s been a while since we’ve had a round of writing prompts on here.  I decided to branch out and do historical prompts.  This place was getting bogged down with all the fantasy prompts.  

Now, I don’t write historical.  I tried to write a short story set in the Great Depression, but it turned into a miserable failure.  (Actually, my seven year old brother read it over my shoulder while I typed it, and I asked him for help.  The plot didn’t improve, so I’ll blame that story’s failure on him. But he liked the story.)

These historical fiction prompts are going to be something unique because–guess what– they all happened in history!  (I know, historical fiction normally is set in history, but hear me out.)  

These prompts were all in the newspaper and they caught my eye.  These are real life prompts, taken from headlines and articles in newspapers a long time ago.  Some are quite humorous, and I daresay you’ll like them whether you write historical or not. Continue reading

Hi all of you out there!  *waves*  It’s been a long while.  But I have returned! (From TeenPact, sickness, and school.)

I’ve been tagged with the Blue Sky Tag by Hailey of haileyhudson.wordpress.com.  Go check out her blog, it’s inspiring. 🙂

That means I’m answering a whole bunch of questions, then nominating some more people for my own questions.   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.
