I cleared my throat and grab hold of the rounded piece of wood that we pretended was a microphone. “Can I have your attention, people?” Since my voice wasn’t very loud, it took a couple… Continue reading Henry’s Fast

I have scars.
Those three words aren’t easy words to type down, because, well, I know people will read them. And then they’ll know something about me that I don’t exactly like people to know.
But it’s true. They’re on both of my legs, there’s a couple on my ankle, a couple on each of my hands, a few on my arms . . . I have scars.

Fair hair and sky blue eyes. Pale and thin. Your footsteps so light that they can barely be heard. You dance with the sun as it rises and sing to it when it sets. Little beauty, so innocent and free, like a bird you fly from flower to tree, from sunrise to sunset. “Lily! Lily!”… Continue reading Transformed

I… Continue reading Midnight Ramblings

Hey people! Today I am announcing Week 3 of our DOTL contest! So far, this contest has been excruciatingly difficult for Hattush and me to score these. Many of y'all's artwork deserves 10s on both creativity and skill, yet, due to fairness and impartiality, we can not score them that high. (Although I wish we… Continue reading Week 3

(Jehosheba, this is to get back at you for the picture of me sleeping on the plane) Skillet is a band that my sister became obsessed with. *ahem* You can guess (from the title of this post) that I really dislike the band. And Cailyn and Amie share my dislike. *grins* Reason #1: All of… Continue reading 5 Reasons Why I Can’t Stand Skillet
(I wrote this last night, but didn't end up publishing it.) It's 6:50 and I am home, (mostly) alone. My parents and three of my siblings are out shopping at the moment. My other siblings are playing Uno upstairs. And me? I'm sitting blissfully alone in the living room, listening to the dishwasher. XD I've… Continue reading A (mostly) Silent Night
