Its Beginning to look a lot like Christmas (repost)

Seasonal Greetings!.png

It is Christmas time! A time of Joy, Love, and Peace and most of all, the birth of Jesus Christ! It is a time of rejoicing, repentance and waiting for Jesus to make his second coming to earth.

I took some photographs of our Christmas Tree and I wanted to share them with you all!

fall hello

welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today I am posting the first post of my new weekly blog post series; RECENT READS. It basically is a post I post every Tuesday featuring some books I have recently read 😀

let’s get started!

I really loved this book and I recommend it for any girl boss that wants to learn how to be an activist! This handy guide has tons of awesome tips for any girl that wants to unleash GIRL POWER.

winnies great war

okay, let me just say this book was SOOOOOOOOO CUTE! Its a ww1 story told through the eyes of a bear and I believe it is a true story! And this bear who actually was a REAL BEAR was the inspiration of WINNIE THE POOH! I really recommend this book to anyone that loves sweet heartwarming stories! I didn’t think I would really like this book, BUT I DID AND ITS JUST SO SWEEEET and cute and just AAAAAAAAAAAAH.

I really liked this book! Its super cute and sweet! I love the plot and the artist’s drawing style! ITSSSS SOOOO CUTEEEE!

I was really excited when I discovered this book because pirate princesses are really cool, but the book was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay different than I anticipated and it kinda was a huge rollercoaster ride that was really confusing. I think it was an interesting plot, but written and twisted in the wrong way.

I really love this book! Jane Austen’s works always amazes me! I really can relate to the characters and I love her writing style. It’s sometimes hard to imagine that a totally different era from ours can still have some similarities, but Austen finds a way to get me thinking maybe the eras weren’t so different after all.

Some of you may know that I LOVE HAMILTON (the musical) And if you haven’t heard of it, it is truly amazing and you should check it out! So when I stumbled across this book at the library I thought maybe the book would be a nice read. I thought wrong. It’s not that this book was really that bad, I mean it is a biography, it just wasn’t filled with catchy songs and what I had hoped for. XD

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’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!

Well, I have some BIG news! I’m taking some college classes! My mom found this really amazing program called College Credit Plus. College Credit Plus can help you earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities! So I am taking an online English 1010 course and next week my Visual Communications Class will start which is online and in class. This is an awesome opportunity and I am really excited about it!
