TAG-ATHON: in which I finally do a few tags PT one

why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! And if you are new here, WELCOME! I recommend that you check out my about page and leave a comment in the guestbook 😀

Today’s post is a TAG-ATHON! In which I finally respond to the blog tags.

First of all, sorry for the late tag answers!

I have quite a hard time staying a top of my blog, so blog tags are definitely not my best suit. But they are quite a lot of fun once I get to them!

The first tag I will do is the Liebster award! Which the awesome Tess nominated me for!

(thanks so much!)

liebster award rules

What was your favorite TV show/movie when you were a kid? Well, when I was from ages 0-5 I loved sesame street and the big comfy couch. Then when I was around 4-6 I loved Barney. I loved stuff with puppets and interactive dancing and stuff! Then when I got a little older I started to like my little pony, but then I stopped watching it because of the “magical witch-craft” So yeah, I hope that equals an answer?

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives? This is a real tough one. I think everyone should either create their own kind of art or read a book. I don’t know which one to choose so I will go with a combination of both. (if that’s allowed?) Oof 😀

What do you think is the best way to start the day? With a warm cup of tea. Tea is refreshing and cleansing and quite delicious!

What is one of your favorite smells? The smell of apple cider or honey OR PEPPERMINT.

If you were suddenly put on a stage and told to deliver a speech, what would you talk about? Hmmmm maybe my original characters and how books are best friends.

Do you think Wikipedia is a reliable source? Uh Maybe.

What’s the worst advice you’ve ever received? To stay calm, even though everyone knows I can NEVER STAY CALM.

What age would you like to live to? around 80…?

What do you want carved on your gravestone? Ava was an artsy bookish queen that obsessed over the man on the 10 dollar bill. Just kidding. I would probably want, Ava the sweetest creative daughter.
Have you ever saved someone’s life? I think…

Opinion on chow mein? YUMMYYYYY! Chow and Loi mein are REALLY GOOD.

fall hello

welcome back to my isty-bitsy corner of the web! Here this week’s very delayed recent reads!

jane eyree

As you all may know I love the book, Jane Eyre. In fact, Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books. It is a powerful narrative featuring a bold heroine and mystery! I really recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a great book to read!

I have read the original Diary of Anne Frank and several graphic adaptations and this my favorite! The illustrations capture the story beautifully and I love the artist’s art style! I really loved this book and I recommend this book to everyone!

da giver

Okay, so I read the Giver a while back and thought it was pretty cool, now I reread it and realized I NEED ANSWERS WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!? I look it up and find out there’s a whole series and I realized that I NEED TO GET ALL THE BOOKS! So yeah, you guys may not be able to tell BUT I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK! ITSSS SOOOO GOOOOD! I was surprised by its depth, considering its a juvenile book but like always Lois Lowry always seems to impress me!! ITS SO GOOD YOU NEED TO READ IT!

i was on a movie set?!+nanowrimo

fall hello

welcome back to my corner of the web! this week has been REALLY BUSY, from swimming lessons to band to BEING ON A MOVIE SET (and being in a movie set in the 70s that was really awesome!) The business was actually kinda worth it!

Yup you heard me right I AM IN A MOVIE-well more like a documentary BUT STILL THATS REALLY COOl! It was a lot of fun being in the showbiz with my siblings! My Poppie is apart of this alpha clan thing and PBS is making a documentary about it AND HE LET US BE A PART OF IT. So we all got to dress up in RETRO CLOTHES, which I already kind of do wear!

it was fun but a little bit scary

Copy of moving on

it’s already almost November and that means!? NANOWRIMO! YAY! I am pretty excited for nano and I AM PROBABLY GOIng TO OVER PLAN because last year I didn’t plan at all and everything went bad! Heh 😛

So right now I am planning out the storyline and the characters! I was thinking about writing a totally different book with a totally different genre but I decided to try something different! So here it is!

INTRODUCING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *drumroll please* *quality drum roll*

LOUDERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

louder.png

I really don’t know if I will actually use this plot and book idea for nano I may write my other book Idea I AM NOT SURE YET!

So this is a very different book genre than I usually write in. I usually write dystopian, sci-fi stuff like that but I decided to make a realistic adventurous book. It’s actually kinda dystopian I guess I DONT KNOW XD I really get confused when writing books 😛

But anyways the main plot of the story is about a girl named Zinnia Raine who’s mute and yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah… I had a whole cool story idea but then I realized it made no sense so THAT’S WHY I AM GOING TO PLAN IN OCTOBER SO MY BOOK MAY HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF WORKING OUT! 😛 I really like how the cover turned out though!

why hello there!

Welcome back to my little corner of the web! July is slowly coming to an end, a lot of things have been happening. I haven’t posted as much as I would have liked to but that’s okay.

I have gotten really busy with school/college, I have so many assignments and its kind of crazy. Right now I am working on a descriptive essay in English and a theatre in VCD. I am getting pretty good grades so that is a blessing 😀 This coming up week is actually my last week.

I also am experimenting with this really cool website called Scratch. Scratch is a fun social website that allows artists, animators and game creators to create things with code. I used to use the website before when I was younger, but now I started to use it again. I have been making animations and MAP parts with it. I really recommend it.

I am really excited that I will be less busy in August and I will be able to blog a lot more! I miss blogging and I cannot wait to start back up again.

I recently got a drawing tablet so I have made a few digital drawings.

smol asher.pngeyeeeee.png

I think my art is somewhat improving, I haven’t really settled with an art style yet, but I am experimenting! I may be doing commisions this fall and I am planning on doing requests to thank you all for being apart of my blogging journey! 😀

My favorite book I have read this month is Burning Brightly by Alexa Donne. Its an amazing novel inspired by Jane Eyre that’s set in SPACE! I loved it so much! I really recommend it if you’re looking for a good book to read and I will post a review on it soon!

recap

I am really excited for August and the new things the month will bring! July was pretty busy but overall it was pretty good!
