TODAY IS A SPECIAL DAY!

Hello everybody! I am in such a good mood right now because on Thursday, December 19, fifteen years ago, a life changing event happened. My bestie Seana J. Vixen was born. I am so blessed to have her in my life and honestly I probably wouldn't have made it out of middle school without her! Heehee! We've been best friends since about this time in 4th grade. I'm not even lying, but the second we spoke our first REAL words to each other, we were already stuck together like Bert and Ernie.

** I say first REAL words because in young fives (a grade between preschool and kindergarten) we had career day and all dressed up like what we wanted to be. Sea was a ballerina and she had what I thought was the MOST BEAUTIFUL TUTU EVER. During prayer or something when we were all sitting on the rug I reached out to touch it because I just couldn't resist. Well, I wasn't sneaky enough because she literally hissed at me to STOP IT. Not even kidding, she did.

Well, that's all I have for you today, and even though I could go on and on with embarrassing stories about her, I won't, because she would get furious at me ;)
But do me a huge favor and head on over to her BLOG and wish her a SUPER DUPER HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

 Heehee, couldn't resist putting this cute picture on here too <3



LOVE YOU SEANA!

Happy Tubesday!- In Summer ft. Olaf

Hello everybody! First off, Happy Tubesday! We'll get to the fun stuff later with that, but for right now, I have to ask a favor of you.
As some of you might know, Seana and I have a shared blog The Creative Clique. Every season, I try to make one new recipe, review it, and share the instructions for it on our blog and the way the recipe is selected is by you! I ask the followers to vote for which they would prefer. Now, I'm asking you to go and vote! I would appreciate that because most times, I don't get too many participators and that's what I count on. Click HERE! to vote or go to the latest post on The Creative Clique (link above).

That's it for that, so let's move on :)
Today's Tubesday is going to be a clip from Disney's Frozen which I've already seen it twice and this is one of my favorite songs. The snowman's name is Olaf and his is absolutely hilarious.
Ohhhhh! And guess what..... THIS IS A SING-ALONG! So enjoy!

Mischief Managed,

Creeper in the Building....

Hello everyone! I have a slightly terrifying story to share with all y'alls. It doesn't sound that scary, however, the more you think about it, the more chilling it becomes.

It starts with a group project. In my 6th hour physics class, we were assigned to make a video about radioactivity, and in my group was Christine, AJ Ryan (you might remember that he has guest posted here before), and Jed. Before Thanksgiving break, we were given time to write the script and film. Yesterday (Monday), we were all planning on watching each group's videos and voting on which was most creative, funny, educational, etc., but there was a slight problem. Come Monday, AJ couldn't find his laptop and he recorded the video.

Ok, lemme back up a second. So, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we have a chapel after 1st hour. During chapel, which is in the auditorium, everyone leaves their backpacks out in the hall against the walls. It's been like that for years, and the teachers instruct us to drop them there. Completely safe!!...... Or not.....

Well, as I said, AJ's laptop was missing, and so was our video. He said he stuck it out in the hall during chapel and when he came out to get it, it was gone.
***Alright, I've got an interjection: If that was me, with the laptop missing, I would be freaking out so much, I would probably cry or something.***
Anyway, I could tell AJ was worried, but he was still trying to focus on class. I didn't really know what to think, and I just thought he might have left it somewhere or someone else took the wrong one accidentally, but I wasn't really that concerned. I was sure it would turn up.
I went home.

This morning I came to school and in my 1st hour Spanish class, people were talking about "that guy who was in school yesterday" and I was like, "what?"
Turns out, a random guy came in our school at the beginning of the day with the rest of us and during chapel (which is an hour later), he stole two purses and a laptop. That laptop was AJ's.
At that point, I was like "Ok, that's not good," but I wasn't freaked out. Then I realized how serious that was and could have been.
The guy actually asked our janitor for directions (idk where to) but the janitor helped him out and he left. When the principal and all those people figured out what happened (I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THEY MANAGED TO FIGURE THAT OUT), they checked all the security cameras and got pictures and video footage of the guy. They then sent out his picture to all the staff. Somehow, one staff member realized that she had seen him at the gas station on her way home and the guy was arrested at that gas station on Monday night at 5:00pm. The stolen goods were returned, but my trust in the school is not.

This guy got into our school so easily, and NO ONE NOTICED that he wasn't supposed to be there. He was just walking around for just under an hour and wasn't stopped? How? Judging from the picture, he did look out of place, so why wasn't he caught? Someone came in our school yesterday to steal something and we are very lucky that he didn't intend more. There have been so many school shootings, think of Newton. That was just last year! It just really bothers me that this happened. It SHOULD NOT have happened. I live in a very safe city, but anything could happen.

In brighter news, I got One Direction tickets! I shall fill you in more later :)
Love you all!

Happy December!!

Hey!! We are now well on our way towards Christmas, and I don't know about you, but I'm excited! This post is probably going to be another short one, so sorry about that, but I promise I'll get some book reviews written soon! 

First of all, I finished my NaNo novel with a day to spare!! I reached my goal of 15,000 declaring me a winner. This year it's been a little more rocky for me because I've had the busiest November of my life, but I did manage to pull it out, and I'm proud of what I did. I continued on something I've already started called "Galaxy's World." Since I was so rushed to get it done, I know I will have to go back and make some major changes later, but for now, I'm just glad a finished! 
Thanks to all the guest posters this year :)

Secondly, there is this writing "competition" at my school called Scripta and I'm entering it, I think. I have a poem written and I was wondering if there was anyone who is a great editor that would volunteer to help me edit! Let me know if you're interested. It would really appreciate it!

Love you all!
