Ahhh Another Award… May 2, 2014

EDIT: Forgot to post the rules…

rules

 

You never know if you’re doing something right until you get nominated 20 times for the same award (my most FAVORITE award). Maybe I should start a trophy shelf…THAT’D be cool.

ANYWAYS, I’d like to thank the wonderful Adrian Sanchez. I have absolutely no idea who you are, but I’ll go ahead and assume you’re awesome since I was nominated. *Gold star.*

You’re welcome.

Now, first off, I would like to express my confusion…I did in no way know that we were supposed to post 11 random facts about ourselves before we get on to answering the questions. WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?

Are you guys hiding rules from me…? Because if you are, then THE JOKES ON YOU because I never would have found out it was a joke anyways. So HA!

1) I really really like pie Like, more than cake. Really

2) I also really REALLY like Nutella Especially on bagels…IT’S JUST SO GOOD

3) I do not like chocolate with nuts in it …who does?

5) I just skipped fact number four

6) And now I’m going to put it after fact number seven

7) And you just looked to see if it’s there, which it’s not But that’s a fact about you, and not me

8)  I REALLY LIKE SCARING THE CRAP OUT OF PEOPLE April Fool’s is one of my most favorite holiday’s in existence

9) I have three sisters All of which are little monsters whom I adore

4) I put number four back You’re welcome, #4

10) When I was picking what language I wanted to do for high school, I couldn’t decide on whether I wanted to do Spanish or French, so, in a spur-of-the-moment decision, I went with French. But they uploaded Spanish. So I told them I wanted French One of the worst decision’s I have ever made ever

11) I didn’t get a cell phone until last year The pain I felt when I saw 7-year olds with iPhone’s…

 

The Questions:

 

What are you reading right now? Well, I just finished reading the Red Badge of Courage for literature, but I’m still kind of reading it because I have to write a literary analysis on it. I’m also 1 page in to my honors lit book, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court (gosh, I don’t hate you Twain, but really, you suck sometimes).
How do you choose which books you want to read? Wow, I just now really looked at all these questions, and they all have to do with reading or writing…where’s the “Do you pick your nose when you sleep?” questions?

How do I choose…hm. That’s a good question. I have an account on goodreads, so I’ll usually read whatever’s popular for teens (sometimes. sometimes the popular books look TERRIBLE) or whatever my friend’s suggest or whatever book it says I might like or whatever book looks like it won’t end in heartbreak and tears and broken plates and such.
What is your writing process? For creative writing? Or for school? Well, I guess it’s about the same both ways…so NEVERMIND, don’t answer that. The way I write is by brain dump. I put everything on paper and try not to stop until I’m finished (otherwise, all my literature papers would look like my short stories…nonexistent/not finished).
Which author do you admire and why? OOOO that’s a HARD one…like, really hard. Really REALLY hard. Really REally REAlly REALy REALLY hard. And I’m probably just going to procrastinate on this question until the end of humanity.
What is your favorite place to write and why? …On my computer….mostly because my writing sucks when I’m writing on paper. Plus, I type faster than I write, so I can get all my ideas down faster. I can’t WAIT until somebody invents a computer that has a headpiece that you can put on, and all your brain information gets sent to the computer….
What books are you looking forward to this year? That Are Coming Out: The One (IT BETTER NOT END WEIRD OR I’LL BE SO MAD AT HER THERE WON’T EVEN BE WORDS JUST LOTS OF GIBBERISH SOUNDING YELLING), The Blood Of Olympus (THAT ONE BETTER NOT END WEIRD EITHER WITH EVERYBODY DEAD/ DYING ALL OVER THE PLACE OR I’LL FIND RIORDAN’S FREAKING ADDRESS AND SEND HIM A LETTER ABOUT HOW MAD I AM AT HIM EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE), anddd I can’t think of anymore right now. That I Need To Read: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Emerald Green, Sisters, The Book Thief, Paper Towns, The Origami Yoda etc etc etc.
When did you first start writing? Ninth grade. It started with a story (that failed), then I went into poetry (that, looking back, mostly sucked), then back to writing stories I’ve never finished. I did, however, start writing songs (the lyrics) a little bit earlier than ninth grade. THOSE, I must admit, I’m proud of. Well, most of them. Some of them I laugh at so hard, and wonder what on earth I was thinking…
What is the first book you can remember reading?

Probably something close to this

Probably something close to this

Have you ever taking any writing classes? YES YES I HAVE. It was in 9th grade, and I met the girl that taught me a habit that would eventually get me in trouble (no…it wasn’t stealing….and no….it had nothing to do with profanity…yeesh you guys’re judgmental). I even remember her name (the teacher, not the girl)…Mrs. Card (get it? Card? hehehe……no? okay then).
Who is your favorite literary character? Augustus freaking Waters and Ignifex. If I ever get married…it’ll be to one of them. And yes, that was the sound of me willingly throwing all other potential suitors out the window.

KIDDING. JUST KIDDING.
What is your favorite classic book? Hmmm…I think I’m going to say The Wizard of Oz or The Glass Menagerie (that totally and completely counts). OH OH OH OR A PRINCESS BOOK! I love princess books. Or really any fairytale for that matter…so maybe I’ll just say this.

 

 

MY QUESTIONS:

What is your favorite flavor toothpaste?

Are you scared of planes/heights/flying?

How many cups of water do you drink and WHY AREN’T YOU DRINKING MORE (don’t worry, I am also victim of the I’mateenagerandIdon’tneedwaterduh plague)??

What is your most favorite pie (again, you can only pick one and I DON’T KNOW ISN’T AN ANSWER)?

Have you ever tried to fly away in a cardboard box?

What is your favorite color?

I Am REALLY Good At Giving Annoying Nicknames (It’s A Gift) February 27, 2014

So the other day, I was talking to one of my best guy friends, and he was talking about how much he wanted to get off the computer/ stop doing school so that he could go outside.

Him: I’m WAITING so I can get off and go play in a creek I found yesterday. It literally stretches for like, a mile or two. It’s gonna be so fun. I’m gonna jump over it so many times! :D

Me:…Well…that sounds like a very….guy thing to do….BUT I’M EXCITED FOR YOU! You have fun! Jumping over your mile long creek…

So then the next day, I was asking him how it went.

Me: So how’re you, creek jumper boy?

Him: Life is turning out pretty well over here!

Me: Awesome!

Him:…CREEK JUMPER?! I actually didn’t go jump all I wanted to, but I did do it a couple of times.

Me: Dude, I said that forever ago…But I’m just saying, that still makes you a creek jumper boy

Him: Don’t nickname me that. I’m the guard, remember(we have this inside joke where I’m a princess and he’s a bodyguard…long story)?

Me: Dude, it’s WAY too late. You should’ve stopped it when it started.

Him: No, seriously. that’s stupid. All the other nicknames are fine(I give people TONS of nicknames)…just not that one.

Me: But it’s say fun to say…AND it’s cute! And it’s fun to say…AND IT’S ALSO TRUE

Him: BUT IT MAKES ME LOOK LIKE SOME KIND OF HICK…OR SOME KIND OF FOREST CREATURE!

Me: No it doesn’t…WAIT, YOU’RE NOT A FOREST CREATURE??

Him: No I’M NOT. I’m a simple human being that may or may not like to go to the creek.

Me: Well considering this has become an actual topic of conversation, I would think that yes, you do like the creek. And also that you are a forest person that somehow has a computer and password for internet connection.

Him: Whatever!! I ain’t no forest thingie

Me: Whaaaaateverrrr…

I LOVE my friends.

 

The Book Blogger TMI Tag January 30, 2014

SMILE BOOKY

First off, I’d like to thank Simply Miko…You made my ENTIRE day, so good job to you.

Now, too the questions at hand!

How old are you?

I am the LOVELY age of 16. Which means I’m old. VERY old. In fact, SO OLD, that I had to emphasize my oldness 3 times. I’m that old (*4 times).

What book are you reading?

I’m reading Violet Eyes, but I SHOULD be reading Insurgent, because it’s due to the library in about a week, and I can’t renew the hold because the waiting line for that book is RIDICULOUSLY long.

What are you wearing?

…Clothes….duh

OTP?

(One True Pairing, for those who don’t know.)

MUCH.TOO.HARD. That’s like asking what your favorite song is…I don’t understand how people can answer this question. Okay, I’ll go with Percy and Annabeth and Leo and Calypso (YES, I READ PERCY JACKSON. Deal with it.) and (MY FAVORITE) Hazel and Augustus (AGAIN, MY FAVORITE).

Blogger or WordPress?

WordPress. Blogger was really boring. I couldn’t even figure out how to comment on it.

I STILL don’t know how to comment on it.

Going outside being active or staying in and reading a book?

Why would you go outside when there’s books…

UNLESS it’s snowing. Because the world will never understand how much I love snow with all of my soul (I’m thinking it comes from being born so close to Christmas)

OH, or unless it’s raining when it’s sunny outside. It’s like the sun laughing at the whether. It’s amusing.

What is the last book you read?

Howl’s Moving Castle. I must say, though, that I like the movie better. Howl and Sophie falling in love at the end seemed WAY more of an after-thought in the book.

What is the book you’re going to read next?

Exile. It’s a Middle Grade book…but I read the first one and LOVED it (I laughed for a lot of it), so I’ll be INCREDIBLY disappointed if this one isn’t awesome too.

Ebooks – yes or no?

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. I like regular paperback/hardcover books WAY better.

The only way I’d ever use a Kindle or whatever is if I went to some out of country place, and I didn’t feel like wandering from place to place looking for a library that probably won’t have any books written in English. THEN I’d definitely pick ebooks, ’cause I’m not dragging a suitcase full of books that’ll be due in a month to Italy.

Where do you prefer to read?

Anywhere people are less likely to bother me. Occasionally, that means hiding under my bed.

Who is the last person you tweeted?

*whistles*

Whose blog did you look at last?

Simply Miko (I had to copy and paste all these questions, didn’t I?), and before that The Little Engine that Couldn’t (CAUSE HE’S COOL), and before that Ben’s Bitter Blog (because we’re polar opposites. And because he’s funny), and BEFORE THAT…you know what, I think I’ll stop now.

Who is your favorite blogger?

WHAT!? I HAVE TO PICK? Ugh…

Okay, I like Simply Miko (CAUSE HE’S STILL AMAZINGLY AWESOME), The Little Engine that Couldn’t (CAUSE HE’S STILL COOL TOO), and Fate loves the fearless (BECAUSE SHE IS MY MOST FAVORITE BLOGGER PERSON EVER and because she’s the reason I joined WordPress in the first place), and Is Everyone an Idiot but Me? (because SHE’S FUNNY TOO)

Who is your favorite book-tuber?

WAIT, THEY'RE MAKING BOOK TOOTHPASTE NOW TOO!?

WAIT, THEY’RE MAKING BOOK TOOTHPASTE NOW TOO!?

What do you do when someone tells you reading is boring?

Walk away. Just walk. Away.

Who is the last author you spoke to?

Uh, I’ve never talked too an author before…BUT I know plenty of bloggers. Kind of. That counts, right?

Who is the last person you texted?

HAYLEY

Who is your all-time favorite book character?

Ooooo that’S hard. *Skips*

UKYA or USYA?

What is your preferred drink whilst reading?

Whilst? Are we speaking old English now?

Water. Or orange juice.

OR EVEN BETTER, Lemonade. Because lemonade makes everything better.

If you hated reading, what would you be doing instead?

Be social? Have a life? Be school-obsessed? I don’t know…what does everybody else do?

How many bookshelves / bookcases do you have?

One bookcase, three shelves (I’m trying to get my sister to let me use her one shelf because mine are overflowing, but she keeps saying no…)

If you had the choice to meet all of your favorite book bloggers or all of your favorite authors, which would you pick? You can only pick one.

AUTHORS. That way, I can get EVERY BOOK I OWN signed, and then sell it 56 years later for a million dollars.

THAT, my friends, is the way to retire.

Insta-love: yes or no?

…No?

Favorite author(s)?

John Green, Rick Riordan, Jessica Day George, Gail Carson Levine, Shannon Messenger, Raina Telgemeier…

What is the number-one book on your wishlist?

If I could read the next Percy Jackson book right now, I would cry pure tears of happiness and joy.

MY TEARS WOULD BE GOLDEN SUNSHINE.

Which is your favourite book-to-film adaption?

As soon as it comes and and after I watch it and decide to love it with all my soul, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS.

What is the last song you listened to?

Let it Go in 25 languages (it’s cool) and Lonely Nights (it’s REALLY good)

Which do you enjoy reading more – negative reviews or positive reviews?

Negative. I like to laugh at them. My friends will get negative comments on everything, and we’ll just laugh together. It’s the best.

But no one ever gives me ANY BAD COMMENTS.

Not that I’m complaining. I like nice comments. I like comments in general. I like reblogging and liking and supportive stuff like that. But I still like reading negative comments better.

Who are you going to tag?

…I almost didn’t even see this one. OKAY, LET’S SEE: Fate loves the fearless, #hartChronicles, brownautumn96 (because I BELIEVE you’re still alive somewhere)…and whoever else wants too!

 

Fog, among other things January 10, 2014

The weather outside looks AWFUL. Like fog mixed with rain mixed with snow mixed with bleh. Like the old man who was snoring got a cold. And he keeps sneezing random drizzles of rain. And since he couldn’t blow his nose, he let it leak out, and it turned into sticky, cold foggy.

ANYWHO, MOVING ON TO HAPPIER SUBJECTS.

Okay, so remember that thirty day challenge I started? It took a year and a month and 2 days, but I’M FINALLY ON THE LAST QUESTION!

Just a side note, I’m not sure why on earth I gave the post that title (not this one, the other one). Looking back, it’s ridiculous. I’m also not sure why I put the whole ditch and babies thing there either…that doesn’t even make any logical sense (not that it ever does…but that’s not the point). I should’ve put something to do with shooting. Or skinny dipping. Or something completely out of the water like that (out of the water…hehe…no? okay).

But here it is:

30) Where do you think you’ll be in 5 years?

…They just couldn’t have thought of a better question.

Okay, so in 5 years, it’ll be January 10th, 2019. So that year, I’ll have been in college for four years, and my sister will have been in college for two years, and my twin sisters will be graduating college the next year…so they’ll be juniors. I’m pretty sure. Arooound this time, my mom and dad will probably have moved to Washington (probably), and I’ll probably stay here and do college (NO PARENTS, WOOHOO!). About next week, I should be returning back to Kansas to go back to school…HEY, I’LL BE ALMOST DONE WITH MY BACHELOR’S! I better be married by then…but no kids. I have never understood why someone would get married, go on a 3 day honeymoon, then have kids 5 months later. I just don’t understand. Umm, I don’t exactly know what I’ll have almost majored in..BUT I’m looking into Event Planning, Voice, and kind of Journalism/Creative Writing right now. I’ll have this great job I want to work at already lined up, and it’ll be SO AMAZING, that I won’t even mind that I’ll have to wake up at 5am just so I can get a day’s work done. But I’ll be happy, so it won’t really matter.

Man, I have this more planned out then I thought I did.

 

Rice-Cakes (and how I don’t know how to look up books)

Filed under: 2014,HERE COMES THE WEEKEND,TIRED,you know you enjoyed this — pinkdoughnuts15 @ 8:18 am

Okay…I forgot to blog yesterday, but if I blog twice today, it should still count.

SO LET’S TALK ABOUT PIE.

I like pie.

The End.

I made up a song about pie once…it’s pretty good actually. In a bad kind of way. I think I’ll make it into a children’s picture book one day. That’d be really fun.

SPEAKING of good children’s books, I didn’t know exactly how far reaching or how diverse my mom’s friends were until a few months ago. At the beginning of the month, she listed/ started talking about at least 3 friends she had that we didn’t know about. Then later that SAME MONTH, we went over to visit this lady that we’ve known for FOREVER, and she put out a children’s book (I’m pretty sure it’s called If I Give My Mom A Rice-cake. It was self-published, though, so you might have some trouble finding it)…

Maybe I just don’t pay enough attention.

Or maybe my mom has too many friends. I don’t know, could be either.

 

Facebook January 8, 2014

So when you’re a teenager and all, you go through this phase. Let’s call it the You-Suddenly-Notice-The-Opposite-Gender phase. Now, this phase (depending on the person) could last anywhere from two months to seventy-eight years. For me, this phase never really began or ended. I mean, I noticed guys…but not notice notice…the way I explain it is really weird and ramble-ish, so I won’t go into any more detail than that.

But the POINT of this post is too bring to your attention a very serious matter concerning this phase. In fact, this is SO SERIOUSLY, that I ask that you stop multi-tasking and doing whatever else you’re doing just so you can understand the severity of this topic. I’ll give you a minute.

Okay, ready now? Good. So the topic I was talking about is ……

Staring.

Yes yes yes, I know you already know all about this and you already do it everyday to some person or another, but BEFORE YOU TURN ALL YOUR ELECTRONICS ON (yes, the lightbulb counts…and no, I don’t care how dark it is), hear me out.

So there’s this guy (no duh).

OKAY END OF STORY.

….Just kidding.

Okay, so about this guy….he won’t stop looking over at me. Sure I’m flattered and all and whatever…but for real, I wish somebody could tell him to stop it. It’s kind of unnerving. I mean, he doesn’t even do it very subtly or anything…he just STARES. The only incredibly good part about it is that he’s not bad looking (come on, we all knew that was going to be first) and that he doesn’t do it all the time (I know I’m pretty…but not THAT pretty).

Besides, how am I supposed to stare at him if he keeps staring at me?

On a completely different note, I wish my family had another car…I mean for real. How ELSE am I supposed to pick up my 5 holds that came in yesterday(no, none of them are romance, (although there’s probably some in it, but that’s unavoidable)and no, none of them are paranormal fiction)? I’ve got at least 4 more coming in, and I don’t want my mom to freak out when she sees how many books I’m carrying to the check-out counter.

Oh, and the title had absolutely nothing to do with the post. Just in case you haven’t figured it out already.

 

I’m Wishing (I’m wishing) for some pumpkin pie, to find me (to find me) today (today) November 1, 2013

You know, the two most awesome things that I did yesterday was that I had a conversation with the whiteboard (YES, I DO TALK TO MYSELF. I can be normal….kidding). and that I wrote to computer ghosts.

On another note about crazy comments leaving my mouth, this morning, me and two of my friends were talking about being 16 and dating and all in the middle of class, and after a little while, I randomly blurted out, I have a husband (or I’m married…something crazy like) and Emma looked at me like I was nuts, and Laura…you know that face people make when the spit water out in the movies? Yeah, she looked like she would’ve done that if she had any water. It REALLY is the most amusing thing, watching people’s reactions when I say that.

And just to clarify, I’m not ACTUALLY married. I mean, if fake marriages were legal, then right now, I’m married to 4 guys…so thank goodness they’re not!

And it’s probably time for another one of those 30-day challenge questions….you know, it’s hilarious because instead of taking the 30-days it was supposed to originally take, it took almost a year. I find this VERY amusing. But HERE is lovely number 28.

28) If you had three wishes, what would they be?

1. More wishes.

2. Famous singer/songwriter.

3. The ability to make friends with whoever I want at will (okay, this is the one that’s most likely to come true…but even for a people person like me, it’s HARD).
