Spread the Friendliness

I don’t know if I’ve ever discussed this topic, but here we go!

Friends.

You love ‘em, you hate ‘em.

I have many acquaintances, but I only have a few real friends. I am a very picky person. When I let someone into my heart, they have to be a very special person. I try not to get too attached to people because I’ve been hurt before. But sometimes you just have to throw yourself out there!

As I’m getting older, I notice how I seem to be falling into a pattern. I stick with “my group”. I don’t leave people out purposefully, but sometimes teenagers read too much into things.

Over the past year, I’ve been trying to reach out to more than I usually do, going beyond my comfort zone. A lot of people don’t realize how introverted I am when we meet. I can be very outgoing and friendly, but it is exhausting!

Another thing I have been doing is reaching out to old friends that I haven’t seen or talked to in a long time, trying to pick that up as much as I can, or just let them know that I care about them.

So as the holidays come, and everyone is encouraging the holiday cheer, why don’t you reach out to someone who could use some friendliness?

Go out of your way a little bit to make someone happy, even if it is only a smile as you walk past.

I understand this is what many other people talk about, but that just means it is important.

God bless, all.

My question for You: What is your favorite thing about December?

A Girl Named Rowan

I looove to write short stories, and I’ve written quite a few, but I’ve been afraid to share them publicly.

  1. I don’t want my work to be used by someone else and
  2. I don’t know if my stories are that good, so….

But here I am anyway, about to share one. This is my original work with original art by a good friend of mine.

Without further ado, I️ present RowanOnce upon a time, there lived a… no, that’s how all stories start. Let’s try something new.A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… wait… that’s already been used as well. Hm…The sun rose. Birds chirped. Grass waved as an early breeze blew across a distant meadow… So this is what a beautiful morning looks like? Let’s add more.The colorfully arranged sky glistened as the sun woke up from its nap. Birds sang a song of awakening upon the dawn. A fresh, cool breeze, full of meaning and adventure; playfulness and energy, blew gently across a quiet, peaceful meadow. That’s better. Now, all stories need a main character. How should ours look? Long brown hair… no. Short auburn hair. Yes, I like that. A tall girl, with short auburn hair stood in the meadow, breathing in the morning breeze, feeling it play with the ends of her hair.She was born fifteen summers ago, on this very day. Her purple blue eyes, what some might call periwinkle, sparkled as they watched her best friend rising into the sky, with arms stretched outwards. Her slim cut figure was a perfect silhouette against the gold embodiment of her friend. Any traveling stranger might think her an angel. But oh! how she almost was one! The sweet genteel face, full of reverie and grace. This poor forgotten child, full of promise, and good faith. How she could help the world, if only she was given the chance… but her fate had not yet come. Nor did she know how soon it would come…“Good morning, Mr. Sun,” she said, speaking in a sweet tone. Her friend smiled gaily back upon her, waving his arms in return. Now we need a name… Nina? Mikka? Donna? Ooh! I have one. Ahem. This sweet girl of fifteen summers, with the world before her; in the reach of her grasp, if only she would… this sweet girl… Rowan is her name, how much she could do for us all! Why does this world not see the beauty and masterpieces that are before them, but strive after worldly things, and the favor of those who don’t really matter in our lives? See this girl… Rowan, and see the beauty; the perfection of her soul. See her. But everyone has their faults, including Rowan. But we will not dwell on these attributes of her, but leave that for you to decide and see. Hope you enjoyed that… 😬 I wrote it a few years ago, so it’s not my best, but I️ like it. :]

My question for You: How do you feel about old writings of yours?

What do You Think?

We were grocery shopping, and I saw a McDonald’s. I noticed that some letters on the Play Place sign were different colors.

At first I thought it was discolored from the sun, but the rest of the red letters weren’t. Was it purposeful?!

I didn’t like the color scheme at all!

My question for You: What do you think?

¡Gracias!

I love blogging, but sometimes I feel very unmotivated to write my posts, and lately I’ve felt like they haven’t been up to my usual standards… but what keeps me going is you all.

Thank you so much for following me throughout this journey of my life. This blog has been up since September 2016, and I can’t believe what I have been able to accomplish since then. I’ve had over 2,500 views since then, and I just hit 100 followers.

I want to send I huge thank you to all of you who follow me. You are he reason I do this. I hope that I can add a little bit of happiness to your day when you read my blog.

But above you all helping me, God has helped me the most. Without Him, I wouldn’t even be here.

Hello…

I must apologize for my lengthy absence. I have been very busy with school and family things, work, etc. that I have not had time to catch up to my posts.School has been very busy, so keeping up with that has been a higher priority than my blogging.Also, my younger brother had a Kajukenbo Tum Pai belt test, which was all day this last Saturday. I had my ensemble piano recital, and I only had a month to prepare with my partners.I got a job as a babysitter for two little boys, 1 1/2 and 5. I love them, and they’re adorable; that’s once a week.

So! I will be trying to keep up with everything, but this explains why I haven’t been recently, and if I don’t in the future.

Thanks, y’all!

Doodles from 2015

I was going through old school papers and found some interesting doodles. Now, I am not a very good artist in this manner. I can take on anything with words, but when it comes to people… well, you’ll see. I went through a phase because I took a class where I was taught to make eyes, so I did that everywhere.

Those are my people. Now for some other doodles.

And then I was trying to do an outline of someone’s face.

I think it was turning out pretty well. If I had gone any further, it probably wouldn’t have gone very well.

My question for You: Do you enjoy doodling?

The New School Year

With the new school year comes many things… for some, new teachers, classmates, classes, etc.

For me and my family, as well as most of my friends, we have the same teacher year round, but different classes, and same classmates, if you have siblings.

With High School comes different requirements, though, and over the past two years I have had to leave my comfort zone to take classes outside of my house to acquire those requirements.

On top of that, I have been a part of a homeschool co-op for as long as I can remember. There are academic, athletic, art, and literature classes there.

This fall semester, I am taking three different classes through our co-op; Multi-Media Art with Metal; Personal Finance, and I am co-teaching a Life Lessons with Jane Eyre class. I may finally put my literature knowledge to use!

Aside from the co-op, outside of the house I am taking chemistry, apologetics, Spanish 2, and piano.

My mom has been putting together our curriculum for the year, but I have yet to be informed on what I am doing in the house. The suspense intensifies!

A few of my favorite subjects have always been art, music, and English. I have been taking piano since I was ten, I have always had my hands in some form of art, and books… I just can’t get enough of them!

I will keep y’all updated on my progress through my junior year of High School!

My question for You: What were/are your favorite subjects in school?
