Shower-Becky G

I don't know, it's just something about ya
Got me feeling like I can't be without ya
Anytime someone mention your name
I be feeling as if I'm around ya
Ain't no words to describe you baby
All I know is that you take me high
Can you tell that you drive me crazy?
Cause I can't get you out my mind



I've gotten back all the results from my poll and guess what? It turns out that we will be having two contests to celebrate my one hundred posts!

The contests I will be having are a writing contest and a photography contest.

The Writing Contest

For this contest you have to take a famous quote and write something to go with it. Your piece can be anything you want it to be, a poem, chapter, etc.

I will except entries up until the 30th of November and I will try to get the results posted in the week following. Not sure how it will go, but I will try!

The Photography Contest

For this contest you have to post a picture of something that inspires you the most. It can be anything! Entries have to bee in at the same time as the writing contest and I will try to get the results posted at the same time as the others.
If you do enter, please leave me a link to your entries in the comments:)



The other day, I downloaded GIMP! I have been thinking about GIMP for a while. I decided it was worth it if I want to really get somewhere with my shop.

So I downloaded GIMP and got down to learning how to use it. And let me just say, it's much, MUCH harder than I thought to work out.

It took me a while to understand everything I was doing, but after a bit I started to understand it all:) I even created a fun blog design using GIMP.

Have a look:

What do you think? I really love it. I'm quite proud of it:)

So, yep, GIMP is totally worth it!


p.s 100th post!


Neon Lights-Demi Lovato

Be still my heart 'cause it's freaking out, it's freaking out, right now
Shining like stars 'cause we're beautiful, we're beautiful, right now
You're all I see in all these places
You're all I see in all these faces
So let's pretend we're running out of time, of time



Review: Wildwood Dancing


Title: Wildwood Dancing

Author: Juliet Marillier

Rating: Four out of five

Summary: There are many mysteries within the wildwood. Jena and her sisters share the biggest of all, a fantastic secret that enables them to escape the confines of their everyday life in rural Transylvania. They have kept it hidden for nine long years.
When their father falls ill and must leave their forest home over the winter, Jena and her oldest sister Tati are left in charge. All goes well until a tragic accident allows their over bearing cousin Cezar to take control. The appearance of a mysterious young man in a black coat divides sister from sister, and suddenly Jena finds herself fighting to save all she holds dear. With her constant companion Gogu by her side, she must venture to realms dark and perilous in her quest to preserve, not just those she loves, but her own independence as well.

My Thoughts: This is really exciting book. I read it in one go. The fantasy world was beautifully planned. This book could have gone on forever and I wouldn't have gotten bored, but I would have died wondering how it would end.



Things I Hate

They're a certain things that really upset and annoy me, so today I thought I would make a list of some of them:

1. When people hate you because of what music you listen to. Does it matter who your favourite musicians are? It only matter's what your like.

2. When people think that your totally different because your homeschooled. I'm still human. I'm just schooled differently.

3. People who don't even try to hide that they don't want you around. It's not hard to smile and pretend you like someone. Seriously it hurts people's feelings when you just say straight out you hate them.

4. When people laugh at your religion, treating like they're no way it's right. This really annoys me. Everyone has different beliefs, but that doesn't mean you're right!

5. When people pick food off other people's plates. It's a really annoying habit that set's my teeth on edge.

I hope you liked this list!



95th Post

Guess what, this is my 95th post! I'm so excited, I'm almost at 100 posts. It's taken long enough.

I was wondering what I should do when I get to 100 posts, should I have a writing contest, blog party, photography contest, what?

I came up with the idea to hold a poll. So if you want to vote, feel free. In fact, vote even if you don't want to!

Also, I've been trying to learn how to write some flash fiction after finding a blog full of it. What would people think if I posted some?

Chapter One//Monster Attacks and a Betrothal

Today I'm starting a novel! It's not going to be planned. I have no idea where this will go. I hope you enjoy:)

Marty heard Lou name being called, but she didn't bother to go see what Lou wanted. If it was important, he would come and find her.

Nan would have a fit if she found Marty being so lazy, but Nan wasn't there. She had left a few days ago to go see her brother who had gotten injured by one of the mysterious monsters.

The monsters had appeared about a month ago. They went around, killing and injuring whatever was in their way. All the experts were working on identifying what the monsters were and how get rid of them.

Their was only one problem, the experts had no idea what the monsters looked like or how it killed everyone.

The victims that survived all had amnesia and couldn't remember anything. They couldn't remember anything, not even who they were.

"Marty! MARTY! Princess Martha Anna!" Lou cried exasperated, bursting into her room. Marty looked up at her older brother.

"What's the matter?" Marty asked. "Couldn't you have knocked?" Then she noticed Lou's shocked and frightened face. She suddenly felt terrified. Lou was the heir to the throne, he was her older brother, he wasn't supposed to scared.

"What happened?" she whispered.

"It's father," Lou said, "he was attacked."

"By one of the-things?" Marty asked, she wasn't sure if she wanted to hear the answer.

Lou nodded. He was as pale as a ghost. Marty didn't expect she looked any better though.

"Where is he? Is he ok?" Marty cried, heading towards the door. She knew that he wouldn't be fine. No one got away from the monsters fine.

"He's in the infirmary. They won't let us in," Lou replied, following her out of the room and down the door.

Marty started to run. She didn't care if it was unprincessly. She had to get to her father. The monsters had taken her mother already, they couldn't take her father as well.

At the infirmary door, she got stopped.

"I'm sorry your highness," said the soldier who was standing guard there. "I can't let you in."

"You must!" Marty said. "I order you to open it."

"I'm sorry, you can't go in. It's for yours and your father's sake," the soldier replied. "I will tell you when you're allowed in," he said sympathetically.

Marty didn't want his sympathy. It somehow made everything worse. She turned around and bumped into Lou.

"It's ok," Lou said and led her away, back over to her room.

"Where was he going? Where was he attacked?" Marty asked. She hadn't even known King Rupert was going out that day.

"He was going to visit King Simon," Lou said, looking rather guilty.

"But he lives across the seas. He would have been gone for weeks!" Marty looked shocked. "Why didn't he tell me he was going?"

"He didn't want to upset you," Lou replied, looking more than a little bit awkward.

"About what? He has upset me now!" Marty yelled, she knew she was overreacting, but she couldn't help it. This was far too much!

"Well," Lou went red.

"Why was he visiting King Simon?" Marty demanded. She knew he was hiding something from her.

Lou sat down beside her. "You're not going to like it," he told her. Taking a deep breath he explained, "Father was going to discuss the matter your betrothal."

"My WHAT?" Marty screamed. "Since when was I betrothed? Why didn't anyone ever talk to me about this?"

"Father has been discussing it with King Simon for a while ago. He didn't want to upset you, I don't expect her thought the news would be broken to you like this," Lou replied. He was studying his feet.

"Have you known all this time?" Marty asked.

Lou nodded, not meeting his sister's angry eyes.

"Who?" Marty said.

"Prince Theo, King Simon's son," Lou told her.

"What? That stupid, conceited boy?" Marty cried. They had met Prince Theo a few years ago when they went to visit King Simon's kingdom. She has taken an immediate dislike to him.

"Yes, but it's been four years. He could be completely different now. Don't judge him on that," Lou warned her.

"I won't marry him!" Marty yelled, jumping to her feet. "You can't make me!"

"I'm afraid you must," Lou said quietly. "It's already being arranged. If you pull out we will have all out war!"

"You can't force me into this," Marty said.

"You will stop attacking like a spoilt brat!" Lou told her, holding onto her shoulders. "You will marry him! There's no way out of this. You have no choice," he shook her.

Marty wriggled out of her brother's grasp and ran out of her room before Lou could say anything.



Review: Ella Enchanted


Title: The Princess Diaries

Director: Gary Marshall

Rating: Three and a half out of five

Summary: Mia Thermopolis has just found out that she is the heir apparent to the throne of Genovia. With her friends Lilly and Michael Moscovitz in tow, she tries to navigate through the rest of her 15th year.

My Thoughts: This is a really amusing movie. It's a clique, but that just makes it even better. I really love Mia's grandma!



Try It #1

Today I'm starting a new series, 'Try It'. In this series I will tell you some things I have discovered recently that are totally awesome!

Vegemite...it took me forever to get up my courage to try this. Mainly because of the look of it. But a few days took a lick and now you can't stop me from eating it!

Ice Cream...it's the wrong time of year I know, but I am really loving eating it. As it's holidays I'm getting ice cream just about every day! You ROCK holidays:)

High Tops...normally I'm not too much of a sneaker person, but recently I got a pair of high tops and now they're my favourite shoes.



Can I get some ideas on what to make videos about? I am out of ideas and haven't made one for ages! Can anyone please give me any ideas?
