“A rose can never be a sunflower, and a sunflower can never be a rose. All flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that’s like women too. ” – Miranda Kerr
I love this quote soo much! It’s so true. It’s a great analogy, because that’s not the I would have thought of it but it fits the part perfectly!
If my followers haven’t noticed or you are new to my blog, I’m doing a Wednesday quote. If you have a favorite quote, comment it and I’ll add it to my list of future quote posts!
It is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities.
This is by Dumbledore from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Yes, I know he is a fictional character but it is so true. You are not what you have, you are what you do with what you are given. I love this quote, I used it in my autobiography.
It’s my favorite season, Fall. The weather is cool but sunny and just perfect. To me, Fall is a time for family and soccer. Two of my favorite things. It seems like everything starts settling down, the leaves fall and the kids go back to school. The last part is most of the reason that I end up spending more time with family. Everyone gets on a schedule and we work each other into ours. Plus during the summer everyone is so busy and we forget about each other. But it seem like in the Fall everyone slows down and starts thinking again.

In fall school starts again for me and all the other kids out there. Me personally, I enjoy school. I see my friends, I learn and I have some really fun classes. But it’s the things that come with going to school that make me wish the week was over. The things like getting up at 7:00 am and having an hour to two hours of home almost everyday. When you add that to my already crazy schedule, I have no time. I have soccer practice or a game at least three times a week and add-on my brother’s games I have to attend, everyday I’m at soccer. Then eating dinner and taking a shower, blow drying my hair, straightening/curling it and then sleeping. I have no time other than weekends.

Family and fun is saved for the weekends. On Saturdays I play soccer and either rest, do something fun or special or spend time with my family. On Sundays I sleep late, which is one of my favorite things to do. Most of the time I spend my Sundays with family. My weekends are defiantly my family and rest time. I think it’s that way for most people. I wonder if people spend more time with family on the weekend because they know they don’t have the time during the week with work and school. But during the summer people in general have more time so they kind of forget to put that time aside.
This weekend I had a soccer game and went to Hershey Park with my dad. The park was so quiet and it was perfect weather. Some of the great things about fall. Tell me, whats your favorite season and why? When do you find you spend the most time with family? Don’t be shy, please reply and leave comments below, I love me some comments.
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
This is by Albert Einstein. I personally have always loved this quote. It’s true in many different cases. Believe in some one, even if they don’t believe in them selves.
So I have seen so many post about being a proud mother or a proud father or a proud grandparent. Well I’m none of those things. So I thought an appropriate name for this would be A Proud Friend. I think people forget about their friends when it comes to: what to post about. I don’t always think about an achievement of a friend as something to be proud of them for. But now that I’m spending the time to think about it, I am proud of them. All of them for different things.
At the moment I am over-the-top proud of my best friend, Ava. She recently started her own blog (Avasworldofava.com) and it is flourishing. She has been posting her FABULOUS drawings, some of which I can’t believe she did, but also her lovely writing. I am proud of her mostly for being runner up for the Poughkeepsie Journal’s Scary Story contest! She is an amazing writer and I am truly proud of her. I am proud of her in every way.
Now, I know I’m twelve, but I know the difference between being “proud” of some one and being “happy” for some one. I was happy for Ava when she discovered that she loved sports (I told her she would). I was happy for her when she started her first blog, and then again when she started her second. BUT I am proud of her for sticking with her third blog. I am proud of all the followers Ava has and every view she gets. And I am over-the-moon proud that she came in second for the scary story contest (not to mention that I edited it for her!) I am truly proud of my best friend, 10 years in the running.

Ava has been very supportive of me. She is a faithful follower and always comments. She has been there for me when I really needed her. Ava is definitely one of, if not, my best friend. We have seen the best and the WORST of each other. We can fight like a cat and dog, then we can make up and be best friends again. We have a bit of a competitive friendship so this happens often but we’re getting better at letting each other win. She is an amazing friend, and I can’t wait to see what else I can be proud of her for.
I am also proud/happy for my other friends: Maddie who came in first in the contest and Ali and Alex who got Honorable Mentions. All of the awards my friends won were under the 6-8 grade division. Our class took up all the spots for that division. Some of my other friends also made it on to the Poughkeepsie Journal’s site for their story’s covers. I don’t know if any of you remember, but I posted my scary story (Though the Woods) a while back. I didn’t win anything but I still had fun writing it and I hope you enjoyed it.

We accept the love we think we deserve.
This is a quote from Perks of Being a Wallflower. I love it and everything it is saying. If you think your beautiful, you’ll go find someone who is beautiful on the inside and out, and same goes the other way.
I have recently reached (and passed) 50 followers!! This is a big achievement for me, and means a lot to me. I want to say thank you to my followers because with out you, my post wouldn’t mean anything. There are some who have been with me since the start, and some that are new. I want to thank all you, all of my 53 followers for keeping up and reading my blog!
Thanks to you I keep on blogging! Thanks for being an awesome part, of this part of my life! 🙂
One summer evening, Sasha was wondering what to do. Her mom suggested she go for a walk. She took Sonny, her dog, and they began to walk through the woods. Sonny lead the way deeper and deeper into the woods. Sasha didn’t mind, what else would she do? Though she had this eerie feeling something was watching her, she looked around and didn’t see anything, so she walked on.
The two friends kept walking, stopping occasionally to let Sonny have a sniff of this and that. As they did so, Sasha saw an owl, but didn’t give it a second thought. These woods were a big part of Sasha’s past. She and her father used to go on walks, until he passed away three years ago in these woods. He was stabbed, but no one knows who or what killed him.
Veering off the trail, didn’t worry Sasha. She knew these woods like the back of her hand, but once again, she had the feeling of eyes following her every move. Soon the feeling went away so she continued onwards. Their surroundings were beginning to darken. Thinking they should go home she stopped, pulling on Sonny’s leash and saying, “Lets go back.”
Just as Sasha began to turn around, she got that feeling again and this time it sent a chill down her spine. She looked back, and looking into her eyes were two big owls eyes. She laughed thinking, “It’s just an owl why am I frightened?” As this thought passed through her mind, Sonny began to bark and back away from the owl. Looking at him she said, “Calm down. It’s just an owl, there’s nothing to worry abo…” she turned back around, to find the owl flying straight at her heart.
We all have a past, but this is the present, and baby, you’re my future.
I came up with this after watching a tv show and talking to my mom. I didn’t even realized I’d said something clever, till she said, “Wait, what did you just say?”. Tell me what you think of my new “Quote”!
Dreams are odd, since they can be scary and they can be cuddly. I have always had weird dreams, ever since I was little. I am rarely scared by a dream now a days, because a part of me knows I am dreaming. When I was little my dreams were so real. I remember rolling over on my bed to get away from tiny evil people and being abducted by Dracula and brought into my Parent’s closet because that was his secret lair. They were weird and realistic. Sometimes I will go weeks without having a dream, but then I get a good one, one that I want to stay in, then I wake up. The scary ones are the ones that last the longest. Dreams are odd, like going into my own world and coming up with my own story that I don’t write.
Picture by me
I think dreams are something we will never fully understand. I mean, when we have them we’re sleeping. It’s our imagination at its best. How can our mind come up with this stuff? How can we see people we’ve never met? How is it possible that what happens in our dreams, sometimes happen in real life? Do our bodies look into the future and predict it wrong most of the time? Who knows? Who will ever know? Dreams are odd creations that are tricky to figure out. Is a dream me in another dimension? I guess I will have to wait to figure that one out.
The answer to the riddle is…
