Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! And if you’re new here, WELCOME!
Today’s post is going to be a new monthly series where I share some recent rambles, things that I have been pretty excited about.
I also will continue my recent reads series every other Tuesday!
So I haven’t had a bunch of time to read books because I have been busy with a few things, but I was able to read a few.
( I LOVED SHADOW AND BONE! for some reason I kinda liked the Darkling. He just seemed like a brooding and alluring guy that could wear a trench coat)
I reread this to prepare for SUPERNOVA! Tbh, I cannot wait for this series to end, because it’s putting too much pressure on me emotionally. MARISSA JUST TELL ME: DO ADRIAN AND NOVA END UP TOGETHER??
So recently, I got kind of obsessed with these tom holland memes.
This reminds me of my youngest brother – he’s always twirling about.
He’s afraid of spiders and it’s so adorably funny.
He loves puppies! I wish I had a puppy… 😦
+I am really excited because I am starting a blog design Business, which will hopefully launch by Memorial Day. I am working on one of my first official client’s website right now!
+ I am trying to work on writing some of my novels
+ I have been trying to teach myself some more piano notes so that I can play more songs. Me and one of my friends (who’s also one of my youth leaders) have been leading worship at our Youth group and learning more piano notes will make it easier to play more songs.
+ I am going to be entering the Intermediate group in band this fall, so I want to work ahead so I won’t have trouble with some of the newer notes.
So that was the first episode of recent rambles! I hope you enjoyed it!
what are your recent rambles? thoughts on tom holland?
Why hello there! Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! I’m sorry I haven’t been too active on here and my socials. I have been really busy because last night was my bands spring concert!
This post is going to be a little different from my other posts. No graphics or anything really, just me talking about life and the concert and stuff. I didn’t really get to take any pictures so hopefully, it’s not too boring. 😀
so grab some popcorn or a snack and read the post!!
before the concert, we all went to a room to put our instruments together, warm up and make sure all our notes were okay. I play clarinet so It took me a little longer than some of the other kids to put together my instrument.
So there are three groups;
I’m in the Beginner group but in the fall I will be moving into the Intermediate group.
In my group, there are about 9 kids? Two Clarinets, (including me) Three Sax’s,(my brother) Three low bras, a trumpet (my lil brother) and yeet that’s all.
I’m kind of friends with everyone in the group, but my closest friends are Gaby and Gaby.
Yes, they have the same name. We were going to call one Brie and the Other Gaby but Its just really hard for me to keep track of names so I call both of them Gaby.
I am also close with Claire, she’s my fellow Clarinetist, we are the only clarinets. She’s a little younger than me and really sweet.
Then my brothers of course.
I’m not really friends with the low brass cliche that much, but one of the guys is my secret twin because we are born on the same day and the same year and we are both the exact same age, so YEET.
Yeah I dunno why I keep saying yeet so much, I just love it!
SO after that, we formed a line to walk onto the stage thingy, I guess I was the leader of the group which meant I had to lead everyone onto the stage which was terrifying.
The beginner band went first.
Even though this wasn’t my first band concert, I was very nervous because this time we had to stand up for solos and bow, meaning that the stand would no longer be able to hide my face and keep me anonymous so that no one had to know that I, Ava was the girl who kept squeaking on her clarinet.
Also sorry for this post being messy, I just really wanted to keep it simple and “chatty”
✧during the concert✧
So we all sat down, adjusted our stands (aka positioned the stands so that no one could see our faces)
The first song we played was called Buglers Dream, Its an Olympic anthem and sounds really pretty.
Then we had the first set of solos.
I did a solo which I was very worried about because it had a kind of difficult note in it.
I don’t even remember how it went because I think I played it too fast. oOf
Then we played engines of change, its a really cool song.
Then there was another set of solos, including the woodwind solo, (which I was apart of)
It was an adaptation of Erie Canal, which is actually a song I used to sing when I was little.
I HAVE A MULE her NAME IS SAL 15 miles DOWN THE ERIE CANAL.
Of course, it sounded way better than five-year-old me trying to sing
Then we finished with the song Bandroom Boogie. I felt really happy because everything sounded mostly good. We were playing real songs. Last year we played simple songs like Twinkle Twinkle and Mary Had a Little Lamb. I was so proud of myself because I had improved so much and I had overcome so big struggles I had with the clarinet.
Then the Intermediate and the Advanced played their songs and they sounded really awesome. Plus they had flutes and percussion so everything sounded more… magical?
then it ended,
✧after the concert✧
After the concert, there were some snacks and cookies and drinks out. My friends and I all congratulated each other and made vine references. I dropped my cookies. Twice.
YOU ALMOST MADE ME DROP MY CROISSANT *cookie*
IT was all fun and jolly. After a half hour of eating, talking about vines (and tom holland my precious spidey boi) we left.
The concert went really well, and it shows me that hard work and pushing through really has a great outcome.
My little clarinet has taught me so much these past few months and I love it a lot.
Thank you so much for reading my little chatty post, If you liked it please tell me, I think I would like to do this again. It’s so relaxing just typing up my thoughts and not worrying about making a “perfect and professional’ blog post.
✧do you guys play any instruments?✧ have you ever been in a concert? what’s your favorite instrument?✧
Quick Note: I will be using some of the same characters, yet it has no relation to the other stories.
Oops; a series of mistakes
It was a few days before Christmas, I was walking around, taking photography until I heard a sound, a gunshot. I shivered, my hands shaking. I began to slowly walk closer to where the sound came from. It was getting darker, the sun was setting and I could see the faint glow of the Christmas lights, twinkling from the houses behind me. I was leaving my little town and entering the deep meadows.
All of a sudden I heard someone shout, “Did you just shoot down, and possibly kill, Santa?” I jerked my head to towards the voice, I felt like laughing. One, Santa doesn’t even exist and Two why would he be roaming around here?
“Sorry…?” I heard a voice mumble.
“I told you not to bring the laser gun! A glitch can always happen when the chemicals from earth mix with the rays inside of the gun!”
“And how would I possibly know that?!”
There was a sigh,”If you had taken the Earth safety test!”
I was dumbfounded, were they from another planet? I tiptoed closer to the voices and I could see the shadows of a boy and a girl. The girl was holding a laser gun and next to them lying on the grassy meadows was a rather plump man that I assumed was ‘Santa‘.
I lifted my camera and took a picture, but instead of capturing the creatures, a bright white light flashed in my eye, I had the camera facing the wrong way. “Oops” I whispered to myself. All of a sudden everything starting twisting and turning, and then it went black.
I really hadn’t meant to shoot down Santa, I didn’t even pull the trigger, somehow it just shot him. Chase was glaring down at me.
“I’m sorry! I didn’t mean too!”
“Is that your new catchphrase?” He asked, frowning.
I raised an eyebrow, unsure what he meant.
“UGH!” He crossed his arms and rolled his eyes,”C’mon, we need to get outta here.”
“But, we can’t just leave him here!” I pleaded, “We HAVE to help him.
“And go to jail? No one will believe that it was supposedly accidental”
“Wait.” I swallowed back a few tears, “You don’t believe me?”
He looked away and let out a soft sigh,”I-I do but…”
“But what?!” I shouted.
“Nova. There’s something I need to tell you…”
A light flashed from ahead of them and they looked down the hill, spotting a camera. My antenna buzzed and soon I drained the light from the moon.
“Whats Happening?!” I asked, worried.
“Run! As fast as you can!”
I wake up to the sharp pines of grass, wait. Why is the grass so tall?
I slowly get up and brush off the dirt and mud. I look up at my camera. WAIT. WHY IS MY CAMERA A MILLION TIMES BIGGER THAN ME! The sun begins to rise, I must have been knocked out for a pretty long time.
I look inside the camera lenses, I can literally fit inside of them. “WOW! how did this happen?” Even though being small is cool, I still have a life! My parents must be worried sick about me. How will I get big again?! I find a needle on the ground and I pick it up, using it as a sword. I’ve been through these meadows many times, but I’ve never been so close up to it. It’s a whole new perspective!
I look around in awe at how big all the plants are.
Maybe shrinking wasn’t so bad after all.
I wake up in a wet and cold cell, hearing sounds from a television nearby.
“Have you seen the headline of today’s newspaper? Christmas is back!” The female news reporter spoke,” Mr. Claus was reported to be found somewhere in the middle of Casper Meadows, in the middle of a Meadow” She laughed and continued to speak, I blocked out her voice and turned over to Chase,”W-where are we?” I coughed softly.
“I-I turned us in like you said. Mr. Claus is in the hospital recovering.” He replied.
I smiled at him, being in jail wasn’t my ideal situation, but It felt good to know that he was safe. I pulled off the hood of my sweatshirt, which managed to cover my antennae, it glowed and pulled the luminance from the room.
“Oh No! It’s happening again!” I cried. “Why is this happening?!”
“Nova, I’ve been meaning to tell you this,” He paused,”You have special powers…”
“What do you mean?!”
“And I-I’m a robot! and you’re draining my power away…”
“What?!” then all of a sudden my antennae glow is even stronger and it sucks away the light from and Chase. The only person that cared about me.
“CHASE! NO!” He closes his eyes and lets out his last synthetic breath softly whispering,”Goodbye, my Novabelle…” and the sun lost its brightness, and the whole universe went black, and so did my heart…
To be continued….
A looooooong story to repay for all the entries I didn’t get to submit.
Heya! Welcome back to my tiny corner of the web! I haven’t been posting as much but don’t worry my friends, my blog is NOT dead! I shall be posting a lot more. I am going to be sharing some excerpts from my NaNoWriMo story and some poetry.
I want to know something,
I want to understand.
I want to take the darkness,
and make it bright again.
I want my every whisper,
to fill up every street.
I want to find the lost,
and help them find,
the unknown future,
they can’t see.
When you’re looking for something,
searching with all your heart.
But it stays hidden away.
You can never find it.
It fades away from you,
into the misty air.
Into the deep blue sky.
The lead of my pencil lifts off the paper. Its raining, droplets falling from the sky and splashing onto the window, making everything blurry. I don’t want it to be blurry. I want to see. I want to see the unknown before it fades away…before it’s forever gone.
This is one of my favorite excerpts!
Here is another excerpt from my book
When I fall into a dream I often chase the stars. I do what I can not obtain in real life. I wish reality could be more fantastical. I ponder about the things that are impossible. What if I could soar like an eagle? What if I could paint the sky? What if I could hold every star and constellation until I die. What If my aspirations came true? What if every question I ask can be answered the way I want it too.
I have many goals in my life, but the one I want to accomplish the most is to find out who gave me that rock.
There are so many buts. Something is always in the way, blocking me from succeeding. And worst of all, they are all lies. Lies I am telling myself.
I’m not good enough, I am weak, What if I fail?
Over and over again, each one taking over my brain and preventing me from doing what I love and enjoy. Preventing me from getting to the finish line.
What if I could get to that never-ending finish line…
