You read right.
We're going to audition to be a part of High School Musical 4. And, boy, am I excited. And nervous. And really happy. Okay, I'm have a lot of feelings towards this, but hey, I'm gonna give it my best go and I'm going to love EVERY MINUTE.
And if you didn't know that they're doing auditions, you should go do it (btw, you need to be around 14 - 17, have the Disney Applause app, find a song that fits your vocal chords--only do a verse and the chorus--, and practice the script. More info about auditioning here). I've always wanted to be a part of Disney, it would amazing if Charisma and I were part of the cast. :3
School's going really good. I've got a A's in everything but science (I've got a low B which I need to start getting a high B.... because bad things are going to happen if I don't). I'm trying to get done with school around May 18th, which, if I do, would be GREAT. The only thing I'm having trouble with is my Geography assignment. I have to plan a dream vacation. Sounds easy, right? Well, I still think it's kind-of easy, but I've been hitting some bumps. I've got to plan this vacation down to the slightest detail and that's going to be really hard (mean finding pictures of certain places, I have to record the weather, the average precipitation, etc.). And my maximum budget is 10,000 dollars and the minimum I have to spend is 8,000 (keep in mind I can't go over budget, 5% can be spent for gifts/souvenirs and 10% can be used for food, while the rest must be used for hotel, airline tickets, car rental, etc.). You get the idea.
I'm still having my major writings block (wanting to write something, but avoids writing at all times, you can read my small post at My Writing Journey). Although, early this week I was able to write a small bit for a new story. That made me really happy. I'm actually really surprised that I wanted to write this blog post, because I've been wanting to do it for a long time now.
Yup! I'm still at it. I've master hiragana, I'm working on katakana (although I need some more index cards... -_-) and I'm working on kanji (slowly, but I'm getting there).
The site's that I'm using (apart from the first Learning Japanese):
Last year today (man was that a LONG time ago) I posted a blog post called 'Follow Your Inspiration Month and Chocolate'. It was in that post that I said that I would be doing 'it' (I'm not exactly sure what it was...) every year.
I decided not to do it this year and probably never again.
Before I let you all go, I wanted to share this really cute recipe video with you (it has an adorable song with it. It sounds like something that would be in a Studio Ghibli moive).
Hello again world!
Lately, I have been obsessing over a box of Japan goodies called Doki Doki Crate by Japan Crate. This crate is filled with happy, happy sunshine. Gosh, I love this box (I call it a box since it is MUCH easier to say than crate, in my opinion).
Do you remember SuperCuteKawaii from the blog post 'Best. Blogs. Ever.'? WELL, they opened up the January Doki Doki box and I love it! I also so a video about someone opening the Doki Dokie box, sooooo I'mmma gonna show you that one! (The video is for the December 2015 Doki Doki box.)
I love it! It just so darn cute and adorable. Charisma and I are thinking about whether we should subscribe to this or not. And if we do, what plan would we choose? IT'S SO HARD.... :'(
Hmm... I haven't talked about my daily life in a long time have I? WELL, I have a 81% in Algebra 1, I have an 88% in Comprehensive Science 3, I'm not sure what I have for LAC (Literary Analysis and Composition) because they won't tell me, and I have a 100% for Geography which is proving to be MUCH harder than I anticipated it to be (DARN YOU GREAT SCHOOL).
Yes, I am still Cheerleading. I've been saying that I don't like it and everything, but I'm still at it. Funny right? But I guess it has it perks, you know? Going to all the games are very aggravating, I have to learn new dances and cheers every week, and my mother thinks that I LOVE it a lot. At some moments I do, just not every single minute. How do you tell someone that you don't like something that they thought you liked? I-I'll figure that out...
I still have my glasses and they aren't going ANYWHERE. Although, I do want new glasses. I've had mine for two, maybe three(?) years now. But, hey, as long as I still like them, they're fine.
Let us move on! Hmm... what else has been happening in my life... Well, I guess not much else. For Christmas, Charisma and I got an Xbox 360 with Forza Horizon 2 on it and it is sooo much fun.
Well, I must be off! I have left a special button for you to click on getting you straight to the Doki Doki crate site. Have fun!
A few days ago I realized that I haven't been posting much on the blog (Don't worry, I'm alive. If I wasn't, how would I be doing this post? Just things to think about.), which made me really sad because I had/have a lot to talk about! That's why I decided to do a post today.
As you all know, it's officially December. Winter doesn't begin until the 21st (Okay, how does that make sense? When it gets to December--in the United States--it gets COLD. Like really cold! So should winter officially begin on the 1st? I said it before, I'll say it again: Just things to think about.) but PFFT, who cares (duh, I do...)?
I have a high B in Math (for those people who don't have letter grades for school, I have a 88.7%). Although I have a high B (88.7%), I am very disappointed that I don't have, at least, a 90%. I guess I'll have to make do with the grade. I'm finished with LAC for the whole semester (*sings* I got it done really early, early, early.... Oh yeah, it's my birthday--NOT--my birthday! YEAH!) and History (kind-of, sort-of. I have to do a poster or brochure thing-y for it, BUT OTHER THAN THAT....). And math is getting really hard and I'm starting to dislike it... Like dislike-dislike-dislike it. >:(
Hmm... What else should I talk about? OH YES. (If you're wondering, yes, I am still obsessing over Japan. :D) I found this lady (whose YouTube Channel called: How To COOK That) and she is really fun. She makes these outrageous (if you've seen Jem and the Holograms show, you would understand that joke) sweets. She's made a Giant Snickers Bar, a Giant Kit-Kat, a Instagram Cake and TONS more!
Oooh! I find another web-comic! I usually read Battle-Dog and The Awkward Zombie (love 'em!) BUT Battle-Dog hasn't updated in such a long time (yet the creators are like "Oh! The Battle-Dog Charms are on sale NOW! Come get 'em!". IF YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR COMIC UPDATE!!!), which has made me sad and angry. You know, the usual emotions you feel when something you've been waiting for hasn't continued. The new web-comic is called Shadowbinders (main characters names are Crimson Rhen and Mia.... I OTP--One True Pair--or shipping them. :3 sshhhuuuussshhhh don't tell) and Awkward Yeti. Best. Web-Comics. Ever.
As you all know (if you don't know, that's fine. :3), a long time ago (like 3 or 4 years ago) me and my sister watched an anime called "Princess Tutu". It was literally the best show ever (tied with ALL those other anime shows) and my older sister (the one who we watched it with) said that we get to re-watch it during Christmas Break (but my mother said that we could start watching "Once Upon A Time" with her during Christmas Break... CHOICES).
I used to like this game called MapleStory, I still like it (and I still want to play it), and I re-found the MapleStory blog that I used to follow! The blog is called the Orange Mushroom (such a cute name!) and, currently, the six Heroes of Maple have come together to protect humanity once more! GAAAHHHH! Just writing it makes me happy! :D
Of course I'm still listening to music, I just thought that I probably shouldn't post any because Charisma would be doing that (*wink*). OH YEAH! I just watched the new Star Wars trailer (I know, I know, what's wrong with me) and I absolutely ADORE it!
Well, I guess that's it everyone! Tell me in the comments if you want more 'Let's Just Talk' posts, cause if you do then give me a few weeks and I'll have 'em! Thanks everybody! (And hey, if I made any grammar issues, tell me in the comments and I'll fix them...)
Just to warn you all now, this is going to be a VERY long post. A super duper long post. What's going to happen in this post is I'm going to go over ALL the things that multiple posts should cover. Because I don't want you all to be super confused, I'm going to color-code them all, so you can find which one you want to read first or find out where you left off. Topics in this post:
Covers for Bianca!
A Writer's Life for Me Tag
New November Additions
More Writing Music!
A Career Poll
These are the beautiful things we are going to be talking about in this post! So buckle up and get ready for the ride! :3
Bianca asked 3 people from the Young Writers Program NaNoWriMo place to do her book covers. Her, loving all of them, but they didn't have this one aspect that she wanted was distressed. Then I asked her if I could try my hand at it, hoping that my creativity could spark up some good cover. She also created a cover from her own imagination and it looks great!
She loved my cover, her cover and the other 3, but she doesn't know which one to use for her story. That's why we've decided to bring it upon you readers! Yaaaay! Come on everybody, join me in the 'Yaaaay'ing! :P
Here are the pictures:
Aren't they all so pretty?!
Here is a poll so you can pick which one you like best! :3
Wonderful lovely Alexa from Summer Snowflakes tagged me to do the "A Writer's Life for Me!" tag! Thank you so much, Alexa! Here is Alexa doing the tag: A Writer's Life for Me! - Alexa
1. Thank the person who tagged you.
2. Repost the picture.
2. Answer the ten questions.
4. Tag 5-10 bloggers.
What Kind Of Writer Are You?
I... I really have no idea.
I get really attached to my character (both evil and good) and I want them all to live (unless the evil guy is supposed to die... well, that's another story :P). I want my character to have the hardest time he or she has ever had. And they do all these stubborn things to try to make it better, but it gets worse (because making your character suffer is kinda fun). Then, it's super cool when I get to see my characters develop into those awesome people I wanted them to be at the very beginning (but they thought it would be cool to let the readers see how they journeyed from horrible to dream-worthy).
When Did You Start Writing? What Made You Want To Try It?
I don't really remember when I started writing. I mean, I've written for school, so that's probably what started in my head or just reading all those cool books and I went like, " I want to write like that!" I really don't know. I'M SORRY!!!
Anyways, what made me start writing was either this quote: "If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write is." - Toni Morrison
Or it was Bianca. Bianca's been one of the best people I've ever known in my life (you know, 'cause she's my twin), but she's the one who's pushed me through hard times, encouraged me to draw (which I'm going to show you all my drawings one day soon), and has shoved me to write for who know's how long. :3 Thanks Bianca...
What Inspires Your Stories?
I'm with Alexa on this one. Everything.
I just look around and see some cool aspect of life, or I'm looking at an awesome picture that I suddenly get inspired to write a book about it. What usually inspires me on a daily basis, though, is music. I imagine this awesome scene that plays in my head like a movie, then I want to make that movie into a book (so that some director or producer reads it then wants to make an awesome movie on it :P ).
What Themes Do You Like To Explore In Your Writing?
*Ahem* (If I'm understanding the question correctly..) I really like the love triangle situation (it's hilarious how everybody is so shy and what-not), I love the Fantasy Anthropomorphic theme; it's so imaginative! And I like Fairy-tale remakes. It's so interesting what people do to change to story, but still keep the original story visible.
Are You A Pantser, A Plotter, or A Bit Of Both?
I'm a bit of both. I pants my first part of the story (because I'm usually writing new stories in the Creative Writing class I go to), then once I've figured it out a bit, I write down what the plot is supposed to be, what the story genre is, the title, and some movie and books that I want it to be like. That gives me a clear idea of what the story I'm supposed to be writing is when I get around to writing them. :D
Where Are You At In Your Writing Journey? Querying? Agenting? Published?
For all of my books, I'm still in drafting. Yup, I haven't gotten very far. But that's okay! It doesn't really bother me. And when someone says that they're in their Editing stage, that just pushes me to get farther with my story(/stories).
Have You Ever Entered Any Writing Contests? Finaled? Won?
I entered in the First Chapter contest that Teen Author Boot Camp has, but I didn't final or win. But it was super fun! I'm still writing that story and I like where it's going.
Who Are Your Writer Heroes?
The only ones that keep popping up in my head is Bianca and Sarah Prineas. I've never met Sarah Prineas in real life, but her books impacted my life so much, so I've got to thank her for that.
Have You Ever Been To A Writing Conference? Share Your Best and Worse Experiences.
If Teen Author Boot Camp is a writing conference, then yes. I have been to one. Best experience was the whole thing. TABC does NOT disappoint! Worst thing was when this author asked me where I lived, I answered, he said my name, then I got so confused. -_- That isn't horrible, but that's the worst thing I got for you all. I didn't trip on an author (for those people who have, I'M DEEPLY SORRY!). I haven't done anything strange that would creep an author out. I haven't done any of those things.
And I'm quite happy.
Top 3 Tips You’d Give To Newbie Writers:
Tip #1: Don't hold back. Ever.
You all have a creative mind ready to be put to use. If you block one thing, you'll probably give yourself Writer's Block pretty fast.
Tip #2: Write what you want to read.
Aren't you writing that book because you wanted to read it?
Tip #3: Express yourself through your writing.
It doesn't have to be for writing a book. This could be for writing some school paper or just free-writing because you're pretending to take notes in some school class (why does everybody seem to target Algebra?). You need to write what you feel is you. It could be a book like Twilight (which I haven't read, and probably won't) with Harry Potter mixed in! That's what you like. That's why you wrote it.
Well, because I only know one person who would do it because she has some time on her hands, I'm going to tag Kirsten! I'll leave the tag open to anyone who wants to do it if I didn't tag you! :3
We are going to add 2 awesome new additions to the blog!!! YAY!
#1: Movie / Show Reviews!
Bianca and I really wanted to do this because we're watching movies and shows almost everyday and we want to give the world our input on these movies and shows. Some are so great, while others... I want to burn and bury in a really deep hole that is 1 cm away from the earth's core. -_-
#2: Game Reviews!
This is because Bianca and I can't play Minecraft (at the moment because we don't have an account). We are going to do reviews on PC downloadable games, games that require a console (like a PS2 or something), and games you can get for free that you don't download on the PC.
Do you want these reviews? Tell us in the comments! :)
So this year, I joined the Young Writers Program NaNoWriMo. I was so hyped and ready to go! I had/created a story idea on Thursday when doing a Creative Writing class, all I needed to do was create a sort of jacket summary and start writing it!
This is my story:
The Shard Race: Sapphire Shard - Book 1
26 Competitors - 7 Will Win
In the land of Elefthria, the last of the Griffin race is gathered to compete in the Shard Race, a long and hard set of challenges where a shard of a rare jewel is given to the winner. However, the Shard Race is no friendly challenge. Each Griffin puts their life at risk, but death is the smallest consequence they could receive.
Karthik, one of the last Anthropomorphic Griffins, has to complete the Shard Race whether he likes it or not. Getting a shard is every Anthropomorphic's desire, but this race has something even better in store for the contestants than that. The 7 winners will be taken under the wing of the New Council, the leaders of Elefthria.
As the Shard Race begins, Karthik's excitement turns to horror as he realizes there may be a darker purpose for the Shard Race. One that everyone else is blind to.

That's my story summary. :D
I was writing and I wanted to listen to some music, but I didn't want to listen to the same music that I had been listening to. So that's when this music hunt started and I found some pretty awesome (and long!) videos to listen to!
I super love the Disney Collections one. It's so pretty! And the last song at the very end wanted to make me cry ('cause it's so beautiful!).
You all should listen to it! :3
Lastly, Bianca and I are participating in Ecybermission this year (we participated last year, too) and we have this poll that would be very helpful for our research. It's just a career poll. All you have to do is go onto the site and it will pop up our poll (it's a safe site), read the question [Do you know what career your doing? <-- Or something like that], then click Yes, No or Maybe. That's all you have to do:
Career Poll - Created on Boll
Thanks so much for reading to the end (if not, I don't blame you)! Hope you enjoy all the new stuff that's going to happen and if there's anything you would want us to do, tell us in the comments! :D
(I realize that not everyone celebrates Halloween, and I respect that, so I've decided not to have a Halloween picture.)
Hello everyone! I must apologize for not posting last week. We got a punishment for procrastinating two lessons of school and our consequences was that we couldn't do anything other than school and chores for the whole entire week. Again really sorry!
A LOT has happened since the last time I wrote a blog post, so this may or may not be a long post. Just expect the unexpected. :p The question is where to begin?
Hmm... let's see. Well, Charisma and I have become obsessed with this Youtuber called Parker_Games. He is a Minecraft player and he is so funny and makes my day every time I watch one of his videos. Do you want to see one?
Isn't he hilarious? :D We watch his videos at least every day. If not that, we make sure he's updating his Twitter. OH! There is only 2 days, 5 hours, 36 min, and 39 seconds 'till NaNoWriMo. I AM SO EXCITED! So expect a TON of posts in My Writing Journey... If not, I'm writing.
Teen Author Boot Camp has their 2016 TABC information up! I am SO happy. The keynote speakers are Margaret Peterson Haddix (Among the Hidden, Found) and Dan Wells (Partials). The sad part about all this happy is that.... I'm not sure if we're going or not. School's still going to be in and TABC raised their prices. I know they have to accommodate to the unexpected growth of teens and I value that they are trying to make everything better for the teens, it's just that I might not be able to save up that much (*laughs* I've already paid it all off except 10 bucks....).
Charisma and I will be changing our schedule (again) because it's becoming a little bit to hectic for us, posting everyday. Once we have our OFFICIAL schedule (I'm not sure when that's going to be) we'll update. But for now, I think we'll be posting when we have the time too.
I haven't written in my story in a long time, although I am prepared to start writing for NaNoWriMo (if you want to what I'm writing, click here).
I STILL HAVE ALL 'A's IN MY SCHOOL! It is literally the BEST thing ever and I am so thankful.
I was thinking the other day that all of you don't really know me. SO I decided to tell you a little bit about me as a person. I'm religious. I know to some people, it would make them feel uncomfortable and I don't want you to feel that way, that is why I don't post religious things. I enjoy going to church and attending youth activities, it's another way to express myself.
If you give me fifteen minutes to wake up. I will wake up (if you shake me really hard... if you don't, I'm Sleeping Beauty... 'till 10). For REAL. I know how to do karate... No, I don't know how to do karate at ALL. If a yellow belt came up to me and said, "Fight," I would laugh and then run.
I'm an emotional person. Like really emotional. There is this movie called 'Gravity' and I cried during the movie and I was still crying when I went to sleep. That was 2-3ish hours. That's a long time. I even cried to this (cause it's sad).
If you cried to that, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. If you didn't, I applaud you. You are very, very, VERY brave. I really want to play the game now. But I don't want to be MORE depressed.
Hmm... What else about me... I want to make people happy. If I find out they're sad for ANY reason at all, I will immediately contact them and strike a conversation to make them happy. Being sad is a terrible thing. And I don't like bullying.
I think that's it. But I will open myself more to all of you. You have helped me grow not only as a person, but as a warrior elf princess (because we're all royalty).
Thank you everyone for what you do!
Watashi wa Bianca desu. Watashi wa yunīku desu.
(I am Bianca, and I am unique.)
I've listened to this soundtrack three times now and I am literally on the verge of crying every single time. It's so beautiful and moving. And the movie.... Let's just say I will never forget it. Here's the music.
I've got to give credit to Steve Jablonsky. He keeps on outdoing himself. The only movie I have actually watched with his music is Ender's Game, but I've listened to the Transformers Soundtrack and it is... Magnificent. It's just so amazing. (Thank you Orson Scott Card for writing the book!)
Hope you enjoy the soundtrack!
Tell me in the comments if you liked it.
Bianca and I were wanting to listen to music this one day and so we looked through our favorites and found "We Are the World" (this was a SUPER long time ago, maybe 3 or 4 years). So we she popped it open and it was on YouTube so there was going to be a commercial. (I think this was before we found out about Viewpure). Anyways, we were about to skip the commercial when we saw this adorable scarecrow.
So we watched it and we started crying.
That ran down our cheeks.
And probably dripped onto the desk.
It was the most beautiful thing Bianca and I had ever seen. We absolutely loved it. So after that day, we searched it on Viewpure and we added it to our favorites.
Here's the video!
ISN'T IT SO SAD BUT BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!
There is the beautiful proof that anyone one of us can change this world. Even if it is a small act of kindness, we can do the unbelievable. All we have to do is believe in ourselves and do it with all of our might and strength.
I hope this inspired you all! This post will be under Inspiring Art for the Categories, but this post itself won't be in Inspiring Art. Sure, this isn't art, but it's still awesome.
Please comment to tell us what you think of the video!
Either Nintendo is just flat out awesome or gamer paradise. I can't pick, but in any case... NINTENDO YOU RULE THE GAMING WORLD.
Okay.... That might just be me who thinks that... Might, but I truly do think that. I mean... LOOK!
XD HOW COOL IS THAT GIF.? I thought it was pretty sweet, and I'm kind of drooling over it... But ANYWAY. They are making a Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 3DS, they're making a new Nintendo 3DS XL (which I'm now calling 'New Nintendo 3DS XLR8'. Thank you Charisma for coming up with the name) But I mean, how cool is Majora's Mask? (Epicness in its self)
And let's up not forget about the OTHER Legend of Zelda games... (I've only played one and seen walkthrough's for the other... -_-)
And then comes FIRE EMBLEM. Never played one of their games or watched any walkthroughs, but one day... I'm going too. But here is the reason why Fire Emblem...
And this is just the TEASER Trailer.... But then, this guy comes and starts Analyzing the who entire trailer! (Which can be found here) How COOL IS THAT?! I think it's pretty sweet. But, that's just me. Anyway, then there is Mario games and Super Smash Bros. Brawl and then there's other games which are super cool.
Thanks and tell me what you think in the comments!
(P.S. Follow Your Inspiration Month starts tomorrow! Come and join us! Click here and here for the posts about it!)
So I was playing in Nursery yesterday with Charisma and my mother, and there we made this train track with a little girl. (The little girl was adorable by the way.) And you would NOT believe what I saw on the train.... IT WAS A KITTY. Here, I can show you.
LOOK, THAT IS A KITTY RIGHT THERE. A KITTY. Then, another lady that was doing nursery with us was saying, "Do you know how big that cat is if it can fit on top of a train?" And we all burst into laughter, but honestly, when I heard that, I sooo thought of Godzilla. (Yes... I've seen the movie... BUT It was the 19 somethin' version.. Not the 2014 one.) But that kitty wasn't all. There was ANOTHER ONE. And it was so funny. :D Here's a video.
Haha, I wish that was actually a hash-tag. I don't have a twitter account so I don't know how to hash-tag things. So, MAKE THE HASH-TAG PEOPLE. Anywhoo, we were reading this comic and it was so funny because one of the comments for the comic said, "I totally thought of 'There She Goes' by The La's." And they even typed out the lyrics. IT WAS HILARIOUS! So I have the song for you today!
It makes you smile huh? So anyway, in one day, it's going to be February. And that's the month I don't like a lot for numerous reasons (which you can find here).
So have a fun day everyone and 'there she goes'!
Thanks and please comment!
(P.S. #THERESHEGOES.... haha lol XD)
