Backwards Thinking

WARNING: THIS POST CARRIES AN UNUSUAL AMOUNT OF NASTY SWEARS AND AN UNQUENCHED AND UNFULFILLED BLOODLUST. BE WARNED.

http://www.king5.com/news/local/Students-Vice-Principal-fired-over-gay-wedding-236597321.html

For those who either live near this school/go to this school/watch the local news, you might have heard about this story through either the news, Twitter, Facebook, friends, or family. For those who haven't, the administrators of my old school have decided to fire the vice principle. Why? BECAUSE HE MARRIED A MAN. The students (righteously so) have declared "screw class f**k this sh*t" and have begun a protest to keep the beloved vice principal. This has sparked more protests from other Catholic schools in the area. Hopefully, there will be a pretty positive response from the school about this protest so that everything can go back to normal.

Being an ex-student, this move from the administrators doesn't really surprise me. They usually have the hear-say in how their students benefit in their strict and rigid learning environment, so strict and rigid that there is little room to breathe or to stay f**king sane. What really kills me about this decision is how they fire a staff member who actively performed homosexual marriage while they hang a "PACE" flag right in their f**kig library...

ARE YOU F**KING KIDDING ME???!!!

THIS IS THE MOST F**KING STUPIDEST, MOST F**KING HYPOCRITICAL, MOST BACKWARDS PIECE OF F**KING SH*T THAT THIS SCHOOL HAS EVER PULLED! I MEAN, THAT'S LIKE SAYING "I HATE MY LITTLE PONY" WHEN YOU SECRETLY WRITE THE BEST SHIPPING FIMFICTION THAT ANYONE HAS EVER WRITTEN EVER AND ADMITTING YOUR UNDYING LOVE TOWARDS THE SHOW ON YOUR EQUALLY SECRET MY LITTLE PONY TUMBLR BLOG WHICH YOU UPDATE 20 TIMES A DAY! SHAME ON YOU, EC! SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!


Anyway, to my fellow EC comrades: THANK YOU. This is just the kind of thing that this school needs. THANK YOU for taking charge of your experience at EC, THANK YOU for putting your foot down to be dictated what says and what goes, THANK YOU that you haven't lost your spirit, your humanity, your will to have a say, just... just THANK YOU! My only regret is that I'm not there with you on this momentous movement.

Pass it on: #KeepMrZ2013

p.s. EC students: remember this? :)

I Loathe Mondays/Monday Mornings/Mornings

Happy Monday, Peasants

This is the most accurate portrayal of Mondays ever. In fact, I sometimes even turn in Joffery on Monday mornings. Like, if someone threw a folded note at me during a class in the morning like that one peasant threw a giant cow shit at Joffery's face, I would scream "KILL THEM ALL!!!"

So, what's the moral of this story, children?

DON'T BOTHER RS ON MONDAY MORNINGS! (or Mondays in general)

IT'S OVER!!! :D

Attention all CVON fans! Throughout this month of November, I've been working on a novel for the Young Writer's Project division of NaNoWriMo. I've loved my work, hated my work, wanted to burn it, completely abandon it, give up, keep going, rush through it, and even created some of the shittiest, least thought-out, most rushed, and less-developed bullshit I've ever written since I was something to the age of six through eight years old.

But, I am proud to announce that I, Rosie Spencer, creator of CVON, writer somewhat-extraordinaire:

HAVE WON NANOWRIMO 2013!!!

 

I have received praise from the people behind YWP NaNoWriMo, and feel satisfied that I actually finished something for once in my life. One of the prizes for winning NaNoWriMo was an opportunity to get my creative diarrhea published in a book form (once the codes are given to me on December 5th), and I actually think I'm going to do it!
 
I mean, why not? It's something to put on the resume, have physical proof that I did something in my life besides nothing.
 
I'll just have to show my parents... 0_0
Not that they won't care or anything, but they'll over-glorify the whole thing and make me feel all emotional and stuff (i.e. crying), and I hate getting emotional over stuff.
 
Anyway, I just wanted to share with you my accomplishment (few that they are). Whether you care or not, I'm glad you're here to listen.
 
Now, I will finally get that long-desired sleep that I've missed...

Belated Thanksgiving Post

Last night, I was taking a walk around my neighborhood. About halfway around, I turn around and see four lights in the sky, and no, they weren't stars or helicopters. They were just four lights that were in a parabola-ish line up in the sky. Eventually, they all disappeared. When I came back to my house, they had reappeared, which kind of scared me. But then I looked at them again and found more floating up from the treeline.
That's when I realized: they weren't stars or helicopters or, like I previously thought, meteors or (I'm not kidding you) alien spaceships...

THEY WERE LANTERNS.

I didn't know Rapunzel celebrated Thanksgiving.

Save the Day!

The 50th anniversary...
It's almost here...

I can almost hear the TARDIS singing...

Do you hear the TARDIS sing?
Sing of a man who's on the run
Running through time and space,
an awful fate,
while still having some fun
When the song within your heart
matches the sound, the distant thrum,
There will be hope and life and love
when the TARDIS comes

When the plastic comes to life,
Daleks exterminate again,
When the Master takes over the world,
and destroys the lives of Man,
The Doctor, dear Doctor,
shall come up and will rise again!

Can you hear the TARDIS sing
of a tale as old as time?
Tales of a man, a man
who fought and ran
From a world that he defied
When the Doctor takes your hand,
And whispers for you to "run",
You will smile and your heart will soar
When the TARDIS comes

When the box is larger inside,
When you travel Time and Space,
When you fall for a man who won't stop to
save the human race,
Then you will hold tight as you fly
And will shout "Allons-y!"

Do you hear the TARDIS sing,
Singing with all of her might
It is the song of one,
A hero won,
Who will never cease to fight
When the beating of your heart
echoes the beating of the thrums,
There will be hope and life and love
When the Doctor comes!

The Doctor COMES!!!

HAPPY 50th ANNIVERSARY, DOCTOR WHO! THE WORLD WOULD NOT BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU!

Song based off of "Do You Hear the People Sing?" by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel. All rights go to BBC for "Doctor Who" and to Music Theater International for "Les Miserables".

So you wanna play with magic?
Boy, you should know what'cha falling for.
Baby do you dare to do this?

A perfect storm, perfect storm?

There's no going back.

i hate change...

So, I did it: I installed the iOS 7 onto my iPhone. When I looked at the video on apple.com, it looked awesome. The new installments looked hip and futuristic that was interesting to see. So, with that, I looked at the update notification in my Settings app, and decided "what the heck. I'm ready to do this" and I did what I thought was the most logical thing at the time:

I PUSHED THE UPDATE BUTTON

 

After five minutes of updating and preliminary set-up, I was ready to gaze upon the wonders of the iOS 7.
 
My first impressions: like every other change that happens in my life, I didn't (still kinda don't) like it. Get ready for some Middle-Class Whining, because here is:
 
THE LIST OF REASONS WHY I DIDN'T (STILL KINDA DON'T) LIKE THE NEW iOS DESIGNS:
  1. The wallpaper I had originally for the iOS 6 didn't really fit with the new iOS 7 requirements :'(
  2. The new app designs are too much like a Google design :'(
  3. There's no "Search" screen on the iPod/iPhone main screen anymore :'(
  4. When you push down on the lock button, instead of the quick little "click" in previous iOS versions, there's this ominous, echoing "click" that sounds creepy as f**k :'(
  5. The main app selection menu at the bottom of the main menu screen is too big :'(
  6. The app sizes are a little too big :'(
  7. IT'S NOT THE F**KING IOS 6!!! :'(
 
With that, I find it's fair that I make a non-Middle-Class-Whining list about
 
THE REASONS WHY I LIKE THE iOS 7:
  1. The notification bar that slides down before you can unlock your iPhone/iPod :)
  2. The background is 3D :)
  3. The new design (however different, i.e. horrible, it can be) is a sleek and smooth design :)
  4. The Safari screen is a full screen viewpost instead of a small viewed-large bordered screen
  5. The ringtones and sound notifications are cool. Plus, Apple kept the old tones from the previous iOS versions :)
  6. The Internet is faster :D
  7. The notes/reminders/calendar/weather/etc. apps are designed to be much cooler :D

.......
Screw it. I LOVE the iOS 7!!! :D

Something Creative

Hello there! Sorry I haven't been posting stuff on here lately, but, as it turns out, college is a lot of hard work. I barely get enough time to relax and do what I want to do and I have to keep working non-stop until everything gets completed (in other words: boohoo, feel sorry for me ;) ). Hell, I barely get enough sleep every night! Today during my 8:30 math class, I felt myself starting to doze off because of the collective sleep-loss I've gained over the two weeks I've been in school. I had to get a hot chocolate and a muffin just to keep myself awake for the next class!
I'm definitely going to take a huge nap when I get home. I won't be surprised when I wake up and find that I slept through Saturday.

So, anyway, I wanted to show you guys something I wrote during my Creative Writing course. It may seem a little simplistic, but that was the idea behind the writing assignment. I'll give you this with the fact that when I don't post anything in a more than 3 day interval, I'm not dead, just busy/too tired to post anything.

Sleep in, my friends. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
The fox reached the throne. Nose twitched. It was filled with fey dust, a blue glow in the eyes of the young fox. Light poured down from the warm sun, through a door high up. Paws made a "tip" sound as the fox climbed up the long and tall stairs up to the fey throne. It sniffed at the dust, then sneezed a loud bark of a sneeze. A form crouched in the dark, eyes a fire blue glow. Tail moved from left to right in a not-breeze. This was not the place the fox should be. The young fox fell down the tall steps, feet loud "tip taps" on the tile floor. Ears pushed back, the fox ran towards the door from which it came in. The form from the dark stopped the fox from its bolt out the door. Eyes glowed bright as it came close to the young fox. The dark loomed close to it. It filled the fox as the fey spoke a word filled with fear and raw: da.
Die.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CVON!!!



Wow... I never thought the blog would last this long. But (obviously), we are. If you got nothing from the title of this post, today marks the very first blog post of Creative Voices and Other Nonsense - a.k.a, this blog. For those of you who've stuck around with me since the very beginning, thank you and please take care to celebrate this momentous occasion today. If you're relatively brand new to this blog, welcome. This is the perfect opportunity to check out this now year-old blog. It contains my adventures from my less-than-exciting life, my thoughts and reactions, some creative stuff I create, ... and other nonsense.

Enjoy the day, my loyal viewers! This blog couldn't be still standing here without your support. :)
 

WE DID IT!!!

Something That I Probably Shouldn't Be Showing You, but Am Anyway (a.k.a. The Fandom of the Opera)

So... I found a thing today that my young freshman-self wrote that I'm kind of embarrassed about. It is something that I would dub "the Ultimate Fanfic-y Unfinished Fanfiction Since the Dawn of Time". From what I read from this unfinished fanfic, it has the overly-sappy mood, the over-dramatized angst, and the overly-gross and slightly disturbing descriptions about love-gone-wrong that the over-hyped stereotypical romance fanfiction Lovechild of the "Fangirl-is Ultimum" could ever hope to birth to the awkward world of fanfiction. I'm actually kind of battling my conscience about whether or not to show you what my young freshman-self wrote, but I decided that, like it or not, I would show the world of CVON viewers my dark and disturbing Lovechild that was created out of the deadly threesome of my creative brain, my heart, and the fandom I was feeding off of to create said Lovechild. This fandom is and was <shudder>...
 

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

 
Yeah... don't ask me why I was so compelled to write this fanfiction Lovechild. I'm not saying that this fandom is completely horrible. I actually still like it after the two years since I "discovered" it. What disturbs me so much about this is the four months of fangirl-overdrive where I listened to the cast soundtrack over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and OVER until I got to the point where I memorized the entire two-and-a-half-hour thing, sang twelve-minute songs in the shower every morning, wrote the lyrics everywhere in my notebooks, binders, school planner, etc., AND even got to the point of creating this Lovechild, nearly driving my friends away from the fact that I was clearly fangirling way to much (except the one friend who fangirled as hard as I did over the exact same thing).
 
So, to the friends who may be reading this, I am so sorry for the uncomfortable moments I Amy have caused. To the rest of the CVON world, let's get this over with as I present the creative Thing of the Week:
 
******************************************************************************************** 

THE DAWN OF NIGHT (I even added a heart at the end of the title. Dear God, why???)
The Viscomtesse lay writhing in her bed. Nine months after everything had faded into memory, the bulge inside her was starting to emerge. She screamed as pain shot through her body. A flock of midwives flew around the room, gathering bits and pieces for their nest of comfort for the suffering woman. The Viscomtesse was drowning in a red ocean of pain, slowly consuming her as time crawled agonizingly by. It wasn't too soon, however, until she heard a heavenly voice calling out to her.
 
"Christine."
 
"Oh, God, no!" She screamed as another wave flooded her with vivid memories: memories of her father, playing the violin with such grace, memories of her as a child, memories of those wonderful days down at the seaside with a much younger version of her husband.
 
Memories of the Angel of Music singing softly into her ear as she fell into a deep, peaceful sleep.
 
Another wave hit her, and Christine was dancing again, graceful and beautiful. She could smell the wood of the stage, the aroma of makeup, the scent of talent and refinery. She remembered everything, from when she first sang in front of an audience, and everything past when Raul first proposed. Painful memories of heartache, painful memories of fear, and painful memories of love for another, a strong love, a passionate love.
 
Painful memories of the Angel of Music.
 
It was he who had helped her so that her voice would bloom. He had molded her into his image and had made her who she was today: Christine, Viscomtesse de Chagney, world-renowned singer and one of the most respected women in Paris. He discovered her, a diamond amongst sedimentary, and helped her grow, seducing her with his mysteries, his heavenly voice, his ghostly mask. That mask... Even now as she closed her eyes, Christine could still see the ivory whiteness of that mask, blindingly white light coming down from Heaven. His crystalline voice rang through her senses as if he was still there. Her heart raced as she remembered his beautiful voice, the sad lilting melody of sadness.
 
He had told her that he loved him (HER) and she had cast him aside.....
 
********************************************************************************************
 
So, this is it. It's not as bad as I originally thought as I transcribed it from the piece of notebook paper it'd been written on, although I still stand by my claim that the Lovechild-ness of this comes out in some of the overly-fanfic-y descriptions that make me want to puke out my lungs, and the second-to-last paragraph got a little less artistic as it progressed ("the sad lilting melody of sadness"... XD).
 
There was more to that last bit, but it was an unfinished sentence about how Christine was sad and how she regretted breaking the Phantom's heart, etc., etc. I wanted to finish this thing where she remembers what happened at the end of POTO, and how she went back to the Phantom the night of and had amazing, passionate sex together, creating the baby that's causing all of the "waves of red pain". The baby (Gustave, for those Phans out there) was the Dawn of Night, the inspiration for the wet-dream-of-my-fangirl-soul title of this Lovechild.
 
Also, for the Phans, this was written before I knew that "Love Never Dies" existed, or at least until I figured out what the plot was. Nevertheless, I still like these two musicals/operas/whatever-you-want-to-call-them, no matter how much the reminders of my fangirl past can make me uncomfortable. Who knows? Maybe I'll even manage to finish this damn thing, maybe even revise it. Only the future can tell.
 
p.s. Here's the song that explains what I wished I had the balls/attention span to write:

:^0 ------> :^DDD




OMFG... I really mean it: oh my fucking God, this looks fucking amazing. This is the kind of movie that I've been waiting to see for a very long awaited time. The atmosphere feels like an exact mirror copy of the atmosphere from the book, the actors are easily likable in their assigned roles who have a clear idea of who their representing, and it just looks so damn beautiful...

I literally can't stop crying from this Manna from Heaven, this Holy Savior of Book Adaptations everywhere! When does this come out again???!!!

OMFG, I can't wait to re-read the book again! :D

WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY??!!



Someone help me. I'm grooving to this amazing song and I can't stop laughing! XD

Hopefully, this will make your day brighter like it has mine.
All done for now...

Damn, Fox. You're All Right...



**WARNING!: SPOILER ALERT!!!

 

<Le me after watching "Sleepy Hollow">
...........
.....
..
.
Wow... this is actually pretty good.


*************************************************************

So..."Sleepy Hollow"... It was a surprise to me that a sophisticated show like this was on the FOX network. It actually held my attention and didn't cause me to have a headache from the fact that it was a FOX show. I even forgot that it belonged to FOX and thought I was watching an ABC production, like "Once Upon a Time". Here's some things I liked about this show based on what the pilot episode offered:
  1. I liked how the writers actually decided to go with the whole concept of Hell as a looming antagonist (besides the main antagonist, the Headless Horseman, a.k.a the First Horseman of the Apocalypse). The ending scene with the blurry Devil figure in the mirror still creeps me out. Also, the whole thing with the tie-in to the Book of Revelations and connecting that to the original "Sleepy Hollow" story is an interesting mix. I'd like to see more awesomeness like this in the future of this surprisingly-good TV show.
  2. I like how the characters have actually been fleshed out instead of somewhat-3D-figures-of-cardboard-cutouts-that-should-be-characters-but-aren't that FOX usually has in most of the shows they choose to sponsor. It's a refreshing quality that I'd like to see more of.
  3. I like how the writing is being done, how it gives you a taste of some information that's interesting, but leaves you hungry to find out how this connects and what really happened to the Headless Horseman and Ichabod Crane. Some questions that are still in my mind are
    • What happened to Ichabod's wife, Katrina after Ichabod "died"? What made her be under the property of the Devil? Will we see more of this character? Will she be an important plot point somewhere in the future?
    • Who was the priest that got beheaded by the Horseman? Why did he recognise Ichabod when they drove past in the police car? Did he manage to survive 250 years as an immortal? Was he a descendant of the priest in Ichabod's flashbacks? Was he the priest from Ichabod's flashbacks? What else did he know besides where the Horseman's head was?
    • Why did the writers decide that Abby has a sister who's been driven into insanity? Will she appear later on in the show?
    • What else is on George Washington's map?
    • Why was Ichabod surrounded by jars of preserved animals in the cave where he was buried? Is the cave on some magical ground? Why were some of the animals in the jars still alive when Ichabod woke up?
    • Will the rest of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse be woken up/brought to Earth? Will the Devil eventually become a badass villain or be a greater looming presence behind the physical horror of the First Horseman? Will there be an epic battle to determine the fate of the world as we know it between the humans and the Horsemen? Will it be overly epic?
  4. I like the guy they cast for Ichabod Crane. Dang. His accent...so amazing...! XD

Anyway, I liked what I saw from "Sleepy Hollow", and I hope you can check it out and see what all the fuss is about. My only hope is that this show will continue to thrive and not die out, because this world needs more hot semi-British guys fighting off the forces of Hell.

I hope this show becomes a thing.

p.s. Sulu was an asshole. He deserved what he got.

Note to a Man's Best Friend Long Gone (or "Two Years")

Sally
2001-2011

Two years
It's been two years
It doesn't feel like it's been two years
It feels like yesterday,
But also like an eternity ago,
When I last saw you,
Held you,
Stroked your ear,
As if to tell you that everything would be okay,
When I would be far from it

I miss you
Sometimes I feel like I'm starting to forget you
What did your fur feel like?
How did you eat?
How did you feel,
When you started to slip away?

I'm so sorry
I'd take every moment of it back if I could
You were wonderful,
The best friend anyone could ever have
It was like we had the same soul,
The same emotions,
Like it was designed by destiny

I miss your presence in the house
I miss having to call your name
I miss you running around the backyard like a nut
I miss when you were playful,
When you turned into a wolf
I miss sitting next to you when we take long car rides,
Comforting you when you'd sit there beside me,
Panting out of fear of where the car would take you

I hate knowing that you're gone
I hate myself crying because of it,
Feeling like my soul was torn apart by an ice cream scoop,
Leaving a dog-shaped hole where you should be,
Living and smiling and playing,
Wagging your curled-up tail,
Happy that we're all here

I hope you're doing okay
I hope you have everything you'll ever want or need,
Sitting up there with all your comforts,
Resting peacefully at last

I miss you so much
I love you
I hope to see you there waiting for me,
When the time comes

I love you, my precious girl

I love you

Wow...

So today, I was walking around the zoo with my friend, Yuzu, which was fun. But when we reached the middle of the zoo, I heard a band practicing a rehearsal for later that night. It was for the people who paid money to the zoo for funds to listen to a performance of a band or something.
Anyway, I was passing through when I heard a band rehearsing. The main vocalist was singing a song that I recognized, so I hummed along to it.

GUESS WHO THE SINGER WAS?
LOREENA MCKENNITT!
(for you folk-y people who've heard of Loreena McKennitt)
 

I was punching myself in the stomach once I figures this out hours later after looking on the zoo's website for concert events. I was so jealous. I wanted to go, but the show was sold out. I guess there are more folk fans in Seattle than I originally thought.

Anyway, I decided to share this with you guys, since a. I thought it was amazing that I basically passed by Loreena McKennitt's private rehearsal, and b. since tomorrow's going to be pretty depressing for me. :(

Anyway, links are below if you're interested. Now, I NEED SOME SLEEP!

I'M ALIVE!!! (Part 2)

Hey, guys! I'm trying to pull out of my period of laziness to tell you that I'm alive! I've slipped into that state of being that consists of me wanting to do nothing useful/creative with my life besides watching YouTube videos 24/7 and pinning everything onto Pinterest. I've wrote almost nothing, which is bad, since I have a critique meeting TOMORROW. :/

Also, I've been reading a lot of books, since I can't pull myself together enough to create something.

So, yeah, I'm alive, and I hope to get out of this state of being soon. :/
:heart:, RS

BOOM!!!

About an hour ago, I was just sitting in front of my computer screen when a big flash of lightning lit up the sky. Seconds afterward, a nuclear bomb-sized round of thunder blast the earth, shook the windows, table, assorted objects sitting on the table, the floor above me, ME.

Let's just say I was scared sh*tless.

After I stopped peeing my pants, I texted one of my friends, who loves thunder storms. This is part of the conversation we had:

RS: R u feeling this?

Friend: Hahaha YES how cud u not!!!! It sounded like a bomb was going off!!!!!!!!!! Man this is exciting!!! :D


Let's just say I'll never be as brave as she'll be.

Anyway, I'll soon be wearing a t-shirt saying "I survived the Seattle Nuclear Thunder Storm of 2013". ;)

Today was Awesome!

Hi! Today was a pretty great day (considering yesterday's post :/). Why, you ask (or not, but I give you no choice)?:
  • I actually wrote something last night and today
  • I (finally!) got some sleep
  • Writing class didn't seem short at all today
  • I'm slowly developing character/plot/whathaveyou
  • I finally am watching Doctor Who Series 5!!! :D
 
So, overall, I'd say that:
 
Have a nice day!

Thoughts from.a "Half-Assed" Writer

I'm feeling completely useless today, and I have no idea why. As a writer, I'm still a novice in a classroom where my friends have more than a couple of scattered scenes. Some of them have been working on their novels for months, years even, and where am I? Back at square one, because my attention span can only take a week while working on something before it cuts off short. I hate my brain. Why in the name of God do I feel like I still need more sleep while I'm drinking my f**king coffee. I'll never finish anything independent in my life ever. I'll never get a job that'll pay well due to my work incompetence and my parents will hate me. Why can't I think of anything to f**king write about? Am I actually going to be a writer when I grow up? Doesn't look like it right now. Why do I even take these classes if I don't write more than a couple of measly scenes that aren't even qualified as actual chapters. God, I'm such a baby. I'm restless and don't have any idea on what I'm f**king going to do next. I need sleep, and exercise. Why is this day going away so fast? Will the rest of the week be like this? Why do I even go to these classes when it'll be like this every day? WHY CAN'T THIS BE A NORMAL DAY???!!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
 
Sorry...

Things You Need to Do to Become an Official Writer-to-Be from a Fellow Writer

  1. A pen and notebook
    • For jotting out-of-the-blue ideas, family trees, character studies, etc.
  2. A laptop (optional)
    • Recording your ideas on a hard drive is very important for looking professional to publishers
  3. "Writer's Swag"
    • A pen tucked behind your ear; intelligent-looking glasses (real or fake); everyday wear, like that t-shirt you own with the kitten that says "Hang in there, baby" and your favorite sweatpants, somewhat-untidy hair, etc.
  4. "Writer's Face"
    • That scrunched-up facial expression and intense stare when you're rapidly typing a character interaction into your laptop and that overly-happy expression when you figure something that is amazing that applies to your novel
  5. Coffee
    • Whether it's plain coffee, coffee with cream, a macchiato, a cappuccino, or that really complicated drink you ordered from Starbucks, good ideas don't come easily when you're just starting in the morning and/or when you're writing in the dead of night
  6. Shutting yourself in your room/any place that unleashes your creativeness
    • You need concentration, not a common place where noises are barging into your Creative Zone, unless you need that kind of thing to work effectively
  7. Join a writer's group
    • This is where you can share your writing to people who know what you're going through as a writer and can helpfully contribute suggestions to make your work of art great. Plus, you may find your fellow nerd herd, depending on what you're interested in
  8. NEVER. STOP. WRITING.
    • Self-explanatory. Never stop loving what you create with writing, and certainly never stop practicing your craft. I get it if you need a break because you can't think of anything, but you should have moments of inspiration to get you back into the swing of things

Have a nice day, and never stop creating!
:heart:, RS

1500+ Pageviews!!!

Celebratory sparkles for your enjoyment! <3
YOU GUYS! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OVER 1500 PAGEVIEWS! I couldn't ask for any more loyal fans and faceless friends than you people, who've (hopefully) stuck with me from pretty much the very beginning. I hope you continue to follow me through to the very end of time.

Thanks again, you guys. :)
:mucho-hearts:, RS


'Ello There! :)

'Ello, good CVON viewers! Sorry I haven't been posting as much as I have in the past since I've been writing in my totally awesome writing classes. To make up for it, I'll tell you a bit about what I'm writing:
  1. It has magic kinesises in it
  2. It somewhat-involves a creepy antagonist bastard screwing everything up
  3. It involves some pseudo-references to other books/movies that have already been copywrited (to me, anyway) that I will edit out eventually
  4. It involves a beginning, a middle, and an end <NO F***ING WAY, RS!!! ;)>

So, yeah, that's all I really have at this point (well, I'm lying a bit :P). I'll leave you with this little information. Also I'll leave with you with a gif of David Tennant sneezing forever. You're welcome.



:heart:, RS

p.s. Support this blog. It's freaking amazing.

A Potential Opportunity

Hey, guys. Ever since I could read and understand the familiar shapes of words and sentences and paragraphs, I've enjoyed creating stories of my own. Even now, I still love to write stories and try to create (and fail to finish) potential realities and try to tell stories that haven't told before. But, looking at it as a career perspective, it won't pay any of the bills (at least, not until I've sold my first bestseller ;)). So, with that in mind, I've looked at another potential opportunity for a future job where I would have to work hard without being stuck at a soul-sucking corporate desk job that will drain the fun out of my life. You want to find out what it is? Too bad. You have no choice.

I want to become a voice actor.

 
Why I chose this career option is because of three things about me:
  1. I used to be in a bunch of school plays when I was younger. I liked pretending to be someone else and being part of an active story (there's the writer in me). Although, I stopped being in anymore plays because of the over-excessive homework and because I was burnt out of having to practice blocking, and lines, and choreography over and over and over and over. I suppose it's the same for being a voice actor, but I can't know that for sure. Plus, I'm not performing in front of an entire audience of people (unless I'm at a convention with a live mic and hundreds of people staring at me :/).
  2. I've always enjoyed watching cartoons, especially now. Whenever I watch a series of cartoons, I always try to pick out the actor's voice behind the character and see what other shows they've done and eventually distinguish their voices from any cartoon show. It just seems like a fun concept to me to inhabit the personality and voice of a certain character and bring it to life using your own vocal chords.
  3. I feel like I'm pretty good at changing my voice to fit certain beings. For example, I can imitate a cat's meow in at least two different tones and hissing. If I eventually watch a character from a show and listen to the way they speak at least a couple of times, I can almost imitate it perfectly. Well, I'm kind of blowing myself up a little bit (a lot), but I feel confident enough that I can stand up to the challenge of becoming a voice actor. All I need to do is go through more Drama courses and work on my vocal chords so they can be the best interchangeable vocal chords they can be.
 
Anyway, I've said enough for one day. I hope you have a fantastic rest of the morning/afternoon/evening/night wherever you may live. :)
:heart:, RS
 
p.s. This looks really fun, too!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBzRmWeC6Ds

Something Entertaining

My fellow Whovians, I found this yesterday. Feel free to squee in a particularly nerdy fashion.

I MUST LEAVE NOW! MY CREATIVENESS NEEDS ME!!! ;)

:heart:, RS

p.s. WHY THE FRICK IS DAVID TENNANT SO FRICKING ADORKABLE???!!!

Happy Bastille Day in France!!!

224 years ago, the 80% of the population of Paris stormed the Bastille and tore it down. This marked the beginning of the French Revolution, which is what made France a democracy today. I hope the festivities this year were French-tastic!

Anyway, I'll leave you to it, then. Better start writing something, because I have writing classes TOMORROW!!! :D
:heart:, RS

p.s. Cory Monteith... that was unexpected. R.I.P., man!

A Tribute to Doctor Who

Damn it all, why are you so amazing?
Other shows don't even come close to the immense fandom
Carried in our hearts for the rest of our natural lives,
Telling us of the passion, the heartbreak,
Of a peculiar man,
Racing around time and space in a mad blue box

Whatever comes, this love for something seeming so meaningless will go on
However long this show has left,
Our hearts and souls belong to you, Doctor Who.

Written while listening to "Song for Fifty" by Murray Gold during the BBC Doctor Who 2013 Prom

I FREAKING LOVE DOCTOR WHO!!!

As the title states above, I freaking LOVE Doctor Who! (as if it wasn't obvious...)
The reason for this is because I'm listening to the Doctor Who Prom on BBC Radio as loud as my Surface speakers (and parents) can stand it.

And right now, tears are literally coming out of my eyes because Matt Smith is on stage. ;_;

I F**KING LOVE THIS SHOW!!! :D


Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'm going to go through whatever Doctor Who seasons I have later tonight, since I'll have nothing better to do.
 
Anyway, I'll leave you alone now. If you're a Whovian like me then I'll give you the link for the LIVE RADIO FEED!!! :D
 
Have a fantastic rest of the day!
Allons-y, Geronimo, and etc., RS

You Know What Really Grinds my Gears...

F**KING. ADARA.


Well, it's not Adara I hate. The thing I hate about Adara is that it needs to be connected to an Xbox LIVE account in order to continue the next episode of gameplay.

And guess who doesn't have the f**king stupid Xbox LIVE account. >-<

Anyway, I'll try to get one in the actual morning hours of the day, since I'm tired out of my mind for playing the stupid Episode One all the way through.

Thank you for tolerating this late-night rant of exhausted frustration.
:heart:, RS

p.s. Remind me to start writing the next installment of "Akuma No Seigi" tomorrow at the earliest. Thank you.

Zzzzzzzz...

Because I Have Nothing Better to do with My Life...




This is me when I'm having a full-on nerd-gasm.
Also when I found out that Gravity Falls was FINALLY off of the frickin' hiatus.
 
What I'm saying is that I totally empathize with humonculus2, or whatever-her-real-name-is.
 

 LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EXPRESSING THE HAPPINESS OF YOUR SOUL THROUGH DANCING!!!

 
Sorry...
Screw it: I'M NOT! :P

Have a good rest of your (hopefully sunny and summer-y) day!
:heart:, RS
 
p.s. Here's the Gravity Falls theme song:

p.p.s. If you don't like the show, I'll force myself to respect that, but if you hate on the show for no good reason, saying it's lame and stupid shit, etc., I WILL FIND WHERE YOU LIVE AND TEAR YOUR HOUSE AND YOUR BODY APART. O_O
Thanks for listening!

A Patch of Amazingness!


Is is good or bad that I like this song?

Because I think it's flipping awesome!


I just saw "Equestria Girls", can't you tell? ;)
Total GENIUS!!! Good job, DHX Media.

Waiting for the August DVD release is going to be torture! :(

Just something to brighten up your day (hopefully).

I'm BAAAAACK!!! :D

Bonjour, tout le monde!
After spending a week in France, coming back, suffering jetlag while celebrating the 4th of July with family and friends (happy 4th, btw), and trying to upload the hundreds (and I do mean hundreds) of photos I took whilst in France, I'm glad to say that I'm back on U.S. soil! I'm glad to be back in a familiar time zone, where most of my material possessions are, the most important and most thought-of during the trip being mon lit ("my bed", for those who are lazy enough not to check Google Translate). Surprisingly, I didn't miss my parents as much as I thought I would, which was good, because I didn't suffer any great emotional pain that would have made the trip worse.

So, I'm glad to be back home and in my own comfy, familiar bed again, with my loving family and friends. Thank you for checking in to see if I as still alive and not kidnapped like in that movie Taken. Now I have to start/continue writing something, 'cause I have writing classes in a week! :D

Je t'aime, mes amies de l'Internet! Merci, France, pour un bon voyage!
:heart:, RS

p.s. I may or may not post the travel journal that I brought with me to document my trip. I'll just have to let you know if I have the attention span/interest to do so.

p.p.s. If the city of Paris is supposed to be referenced to as a woman, and it contains the iconic phalic symbol of the Eiffel Tower, doesn't that make Paris a hermaphrodite? :/
Just something for you to ponder...

Important News!

Okay, I have to tell you a couple of important things before things get too late.
  1. I'm leaving for France tomorrow. I know, right? FRANCE!!! I'll be gone for about a week, so don't get nervous if nothing turns up for a long while. If you don't hear anything from me in two weeks, however, feel free to worry plenty.

    Anyway, I'll be out of the country for a week and won't have much access to the Internet so I can frequently update my adventures, not to mention I'll be really tired from walking around museums and such all freaking day. Although, I will bring a travel journal with me that I may/may not copy onto CVON. Now is the final packing stage before I have to go to the airport at 10:30 tomorrow morning.
  2. I have a new blog awaiting viewers. It's more of a branch-off blog, but I'm hoping to keep both CVON and this new blog running at the same time. The name of this new blog (if you haven't stumbled across it before now) is "The Reading Adventures of Twilight Sparkle", featuring the one-and-only Twilight Sparkle. She reviews books from the human world and reviews them, sharing her love of books to the world.

    Anyway, I hope this lasts long. I'd hate for it to burn out because of my short attention span and lack of creativity. I hope you check it out and follow it with as much enthusiasm as following this blog.

So that's it. Follow RATS ("The Reading Adventures of Twilight Sparkle") and don't lose your heads, because I'll be across the pond in France for a week. Allons-y, Alonso! ;)
:heart:, RS

p.s. links for you to survive the next week without me!: ;)

Aftermath

GOOD RIDDANCE, EASTSIDE CATHOLIC!!! XPPPPP


As you have probably guessed, I'm finally free of the academic nuthouse. FINALS! actually weren't as bad as I thought they would be and, so far, I've been getting good grades from completing those FINALS! without having a small mental/emotional breakdown. I could give you a list of all the classes I had and how I liked/disliked them, but that would be pointless, because a. I'm worried about people (i.e. teachers) from my old school seeing my opinions, since I'm uber-paranoid, and b. you all have better things to do with your life than stalk me on this blog!

Anyway, I also had to give back some cats that I helped foster for three months. It was extra-painful this time because we had kittens from the moment they were born, and the mother-cat was really shy but sweet and caring. I'll stop here, otherwise I'll explode in a fiery-flood of heart-aching-ly filled tears.

Anyway, I'm relishing in the fact that I can sleep in 'til 9:30 on a Wednesday and not having the pressure of finishing any sort of homework for the next day. With all the free time, I can
  • Read some books (i.e. more than one in a day)
  • Write some interesting/creative shit
  • Sleep in
  • Hang with friends
  • Share some interesting/creative shit
  • Continue the "Akuma No Seigi" collaboration with Yuzu
  • etc...

So, with that, I'll get started with my summer vacation. I hope to see you all really soon! :)
:heart:, RS

p.s. Thank you for hanging on while I've been AWOL this past week. :heart: you guys!

One! More! Day!



I have two reasons for making this post's title the way it is:
  1. It's one more day until the first couple of FINALS
  2. It's my last day of being sixteen (SPOILER ALERT!)
  3. It was the last actual/for-real day of school at the Academic Nuthouse
Going by the last couple days of pre-FINALS week, I should be stressing out over the last couple of subjects I need to study, resulting in what feels like extremely-high blood pressure, staying up until around 11:30 at night, which results in a nervous breakdown. Luckily, I don't think I'll have that problem tonight, because I FINALLY FINISHED MY GODDAMN GRAPHIC NOVEL!!! Long story short is that I put it off until the last minute, stayed up until 11:30 last night with about 58% of it done (insert nervous breakdown), then scrambled during classes, miraculously finishing it during 4th Period, turning it in two hours later feeling ultimately relieved. :)

Now, FINALS!

..........................................................................................

Nah, I'll procrastinate instead, and reflect on my life being sixteen.

Overall, it hasn't been that bad: I've grown (somewhat) socially, finally becoming a (somewhat) anthropophobe, I've made more wonderful friends, and I've gotten into college early! How great is that?! And today hasn't been all that horrible (discluding the fact that I was scrambling to get my stupid graphic novel done on time). It's actually kind of sunny right now. And, to top it off, I played with my dog, who was hyper after getting a bath, which made me feel pretty good about life in general. I'm actually kind of excited about what this new year brings for me. I hope it's something special.

Anyway, I hope you have a good rest of the morning/afternoon/evening/night, and I hope to see you when I'm seventeen! :D

Help My Brain...


Someone please explain this video to me...

I am so confused...
<3, RS

Ehn... :/

It's two days before FINALS (and my birthday) arrive and I literally don't give a crap about anything anymore. I'm not making any effort to study for FINALS or to finish any FINAL projects in order to get out of here. Even as I type this, my facial expression is :/ and I'm feeling really depressed. Why?

  1. I'm trying to study 18,000 things at once, all of which are equally "important"
    • This is one of the reasons why I'll be missing this academic nuthouse (being highly sarcastic): every teacher I have assigns way too much crap for me to study with, and if I don't do some of the worksheets, I'll be chastised for not having done that worksheet since it's important to my future. Yeah, like I'll be studying how to cure sickle cell disease by analyzing the structure of the infected cells, or how I'll be giving a crap about any geometric figure in my life after I'm completely done with school.
  2. Due to trying to complete 18,000 things at once, I am mentally (not to mention physically and emotionally) drained
    • Kind of self-explanatory. I immediately shut down once I get home and not do anything for the rest of the day. Not a good way to get the frig out of here. This also strains my conscience due to it screaming to me that I need to get this shit done while I tell it to go hump a cactus.
  3. I still haven't finished my graphic novel project :(
    • Yes, that graphic-novel-creative-explosion that I posted a couple of months ago hasn't been finished yet...
    • Or started...
    • And it's due tomorrow...
    • Shit!
  4. I have multiple things I haven't done that I know will screw me over
    • Yeah. I have a monologue that I know I'll forget after the first couple of paragraph, I have an argument that I didn't even make an effort of doing, I have to still study for my Drama/Geometry/Biology/Religion/French/World History/English FINALS, and, as previously listed, I haven't even started my graphic novel project.
    • May God have mercy on my soul...

So, yeah, I have a lot to do before I'm finished with FINALS and it's taking a huge toll on me.  have no idea if I'm going to finish it all without becoming manically depressed and having a mental breakdown. Oh well, I'd better get started, then.

Hope to see you in one sanity-filled piece. :/

It's Going to be One Hell of a Day...

    Okay... Let's get a couple of things straight:
  • I rode on the I90 highway for a half an hour before I had to turn back because of a semi rollover several miles down the road
  • I waited five hours until traffic was clear enough to drive (by then, it was about 11pm)
  • I got to where I wanted to go at about 12:45 in the morning, getting to sleep by about 1-ish
  • And now, I was woken up at 7:45 to get ready for a family party at my place with about 6-ish hours of sleep...

  • LET'S GO MEET THE FAMILY!!!

What?

That rare moment where my printer prints out a PowerPoint slide in less than five hours...
 
Just decided to post this because a. I'm busy, b. I'm tired, and c. this moment rarely happens and I decided to celebrate it with you guys. Now, I must be going because a. I need sleep, b. I need to finish my project (due tomorrow, yippee...), and c. I must continue to work on creative things before I black out from exhaustion.
 
I hope to see y'all very soon!
<3, RS
 
p.s. I'm currently working with another friend of mine on a super special awesome collaboration blog, so keep an eye out for a notification post for when it's acceptable for your audience. ;)

2 Weeks and Counting...



Oh my God... I'm so close I can almost taste the college...

Really, all that's standing in my way in getting out of this academic nuthouse are final projects (which I'm planning to procrastinate until the last minute and put in my shitty last minute "masterpiece"). But, hey, at least I'll be free after the last day of Finals! Fun fact: I'm celebrating my birthday (also known as "the day I first took in oxygen" or "the day I suddenly and miraculously came into being")on the first day of Finals. :(
Happy frigging birthday to me...

Anyway, I'm trying to hang on for the next two-and-some weeks until I can gratefully kiss this academic madhouse goodbye! Hopefully BC won't be as strenuous as this. How can it be? I'LL BE TAKING TWO-THREE CLASSES A DAY, COMING OUT AT AROUND NOON ON STANDARD DAYS!!!

I hope to see you soon, hopefully in one sanity-filled piece.

More Creative Upchucking!!! :D

Last night, I wrote this. Not going to say anything more. Just read it.

Enjoy.
<3, RS

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                I taste the griminess of the ancient wood floor in my breath. With ragged breath, I push myself up to a meager sitting position. It’s freezing up here, the bitter wind tearing through my skin right through my bones. I crawl to the nearest wall, and lean against it, trying to catch my bearings. From where I sat, I could see the faint borders of the trapdoor that the crone pushed me through, a door that could only be operated from underneath. No good trying to pull it open from my end. The wood paneling of the floor was filthy, confirming my observations from my face-to-face encounter. Some scraps of hay were blown around the floor, the vague possibility of others before me.

                I pulled myself up the wall, using the eternal curve as a support system. I saw the lone window that the cold wind was coming through. It was only a couple of feet away from me. I grabbed the bricks of the wall and pulled myself along, my legs following weakly. The wind blew my hair away from my face as I got closer, sending my tattered skirts dancing wildly. Finally, I saw sunlight. I almost jumped out the window to grab a ray of it in my arms. I stopped when I saw where I truly was, suspended a hundred feet in the air. The crone locked me away in my tower, like in the stories Mother used to tell…

                Mother. I had no idea if she or my sister had survived. Even my childhood friends lay in the testy hands of Fate, waiting to be thrown into the unknown. I let myself collapse back down to the disgusting floor as I open my mouth and release the purest of sadnesses that have and ever shall be on this earth. I cried out my sadness, my fear of the unknown, my raw anger towards the crone and towards my current situation. My body convulsed with every heart-wrenching, soul-poisoning sob. I was so hopeless that I barely noticed when I steadily lost consciousness and fell into a deep and dreamless sleep.

Creativeness UNLEASHED!

Hey, CVON peoples! I just wanted to share this scene I wrote in the late hours of last night. It's based on the Greek myth of Danaƫ (otherwise known as Perseus' mom). I might make a story out of this, I might not. But I decided that I should share with you guys since I haven't been posting any creative stuff for a while. Enjoy!
<3, RS

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                The farmer dug his rake into the dark soil and sighed. From where he stood in his fields, he had a clear view of the towering castle from across the wide river, and it was burning. Smoke swelled into the darkening skies from the inside and he thought he could hear some shouts of joy being carried on the wind. He sighed again, his soul weighed down my remorse for the people inside, what must be happening to them. He could still hear the sounds of anger and vengeance from the tavern the night before. How it hurt his ears! The aching farmer turned away, trying to make sense of it all, wanting to retreat inside his cottage and climb into bed, unable to take in the deathly skies above…

                When something caught his eye.

               Floating down the river, being pushed by the current, were pieces of wooden debris from the castle, some still burning. But the one thing that caught the farmer’s eye was a wooden crate, completely intact, swirling along with the current. It landed on the riverbank next to the farmer’s field. Curiosity pulled at him, so the farmer wandered over to where the crate had landed. It was an intricately designed crate, with twisting gold frame lining the walls, about the size of a traveler’s clothing trunk. Curiosity pulled at the farmer further, begging him to see what was inside this box. His aged hands gingerly reached for the lid and slowly opened it, releasing it with surprise and causing it to crash against the back of the trunk.

                Inside was the limp form of a young girl, a maid, judging by her uniform. The farmer looked closer, seeing if the girl still had life clinging to her. He reached his fingers to her arm and gently took her wrist in his. She stirred, sending the farmer’s heart rate climbing. She was alive, thank (DEITY). The girl pulled her arm underneath her and moaned. This was when the farmer noticed that she was clutching onto something. He attempted to turn her over slightly to see what she was holding when he stopped a quarter of the way. Clutched in her arms was a young baby, sleeping in the girl’s protective arms. The farmer’s mind ran wild. Where did this pair come from? The castle? Whose baby was this anyway? Was it the girl’s or someone else’s? Why were they put inside this trunk? Why was this trunk put into the river? What in (DEITY)'s name was going on?

Character Development

Hey guys! I don't have anything to contribute other than advancements in my Superhero/Villain development. I'd say more, but I'm tired, and I have a lot of HW (plus I'm procrastinating like mad). Enjoy.

SUPERHERO:
  • Name: Sadie
  • "Loving" father, mother's dead, no siblings
  • Few friends, but they're good friends
  • Given a lot of crap in her life w/ no thanks for anything
  • Not much pleasure in her life except when she's with her friends
  • She drank a chemically poisoned soda at lunch
    • Unlocked the Darkness
    • Lunch people won't apologise

VILLAIN:
  • Name: The Darkness
  • Physical embodiment of Sadie's depression
    • Sadie's alter ego-ish
  • Smokes
  • Feeds off the extreme negativity of Sadie's life
  • A complete bitch
    • Moody
  • Dislikes kindness because she finds it as mocking Sadie
  • Longs for the gifts of "justice"
    • Hurting those who've hurt her
    • Getting her dues
  • Complete takeover in Sadie's life
  • Complete opposite of Sadie
  • Darker, more extreme outfit than Sadie's

CONFLICT:
  • Sadie's fighting with herself
  • She has to tell her friends to leave her so they don't get hurt
  • She constantly fights for control/justice/happiness/stability
  • The Darkness nearly burns down the school, almost killing everyone inside
    • Saves them before the building collapses

I've even drawn some pretty good looking pictures. Here's the Michelangelo's-David of pictures:

Anyway, I'll leave you alone now. Have a fun rest of the day.

Okay, I Lied...

So lately, I've been drained of my creative-inspiration-superpower. I even asked some of my writing friends for a prompt of what I should write about because I was so brain-dead. But today, I've been literally hit with the atomic bomb of creative inspiration. Why? Because my English teacher has given me an assignment about superheroes and villains!!! :D

To give you some backstory into this assignment, we're reading the graphic novel Persepolis, which, for those who don't know, is a memoir of Marjane Satrapi, where most of her life was centered around the Islamic Revolution and the aftermath of the Iraq-Iran war. Due to reading Persepolis, my teacher thought that it would be a good idea to make a 25-100 panel comic book for the final project.

I couldn't agree more.

Ever since I started brainstorming, my mind is constantly stimulated with my imagination. I literally can't stop thinking about anything creative. I even got characteristics for my "superhero". I've even got the freaking relationship between the superhero and the villain in my graphic novel epic! (jk about the epic, although it is pretty epic ;))

Anyway, I just wanted to vent off radiation from my creative-inspiration nuke. I hope you'll forgive me. I might update as "development" goes on.

Thank you for dealing with my temporary insanity.

HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!!! (early)

Just a heads up, I might not post anything for the next couple of days, due to me taking a long-deserved break, sleeping in, taking it easy, and honoring those fallen/POW/MIA veterans on Monday.

HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY, EVERYONE!!!

That is all...

Ho...Ly...Sh*t...

Oh...my...supercali-friggingtastic-expiali-mothertrucking-docious...
There are no words. I mean, there are literally no words about this. All I can really say is that

This...

is...

AWESOME!!!



I just found this out of the blue. And this made my day. As you could tell by the first line, it's Disney-related, but it's the best Disney-related fandom: it's dark. It hooked me instantly. Even now, I'm waiting for the next page/installment of this holy wonderment of epic awesomeness. I'm going to give you the link so you can judge for yourself why I see this as supercali-friggingtastic-expiali-mothertrucking-docious. If you aren't a Disney fan, YOU HAVE NO SOUL. ;)

Oh, and I'm giving you another web comic link for those who aren't Disney-people.
See you in the fandoms! ;)

Little Children Would Hate Me If I Told Them This...

I feel horrible for what I did and I feel equally horrible for telling this to you, but if I don't say something, I will literally explode from shame and sorrow. Okay, here goes...

I PERFORMED MANSLAUGHTER ON A BALLOON.


Okay, so here's the story: I was waiting after school with Yuzu (http://yuzukumi.blogspot.com/) in the parking lot area, when I noticed a balloon rolling down the hill. It was a blue balloon that was being pushed by a gentle wind along the parking lot. It eventually drifted into my line of sight. Seeing the balloon in said parking lot, I thought that it was best if I saved it before a car could run it over. With a cry of "Don't worry, Balloon! I'll save you!", I ran towards it, where by now it had drifted to a dirt bed. As I got close enough to pick it up, I have no idea if I accidentally stepped on it or I stepped on a stick that poked it, but I somehow magically made the balloon explode.

...........

(Above would be a picture of the crime scene, but I decided to spare you from it, due to the over-excessive gore that would probably make you feel overly-queasy. ;) )

Anyway, Yuzu laughed, calling it the Ultimate Fail, etc. Afterwards, I gave the destroyed balloon a "funeral" (ie, a "bouquet" of a pine branch, a couple of dead leaves, and three buttercups) on the crime scene.

And that's it. If you don't hear from me in the next week, that means the authorities have detained me and are questioning me about said manslaughter of said balloon.

I hope to see you again soon (hopefully not from behind bars). ;)
<3, RS

p.s. THANKS FOR THE 1000 PAGEVIEWS, U GAIS! 112 POSTS AND LESS THAN ONE YEAR LATER, YOU GUYS STILL CARE, WHICH MEANS I PROBABLY HAVEN'T ANNOYED YOU TOO MUCH! :D

I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH! <3

Oh...Mah...CELESTIA...and Other News


Oh my God, you guys...

EQUESTRIA GIRLS MAY ACTUALLY BE GOOD!!!


Like many other bronies, I was wary of the initial designs (as shown above). I, like many other bronies around the world, were predicting in soothsayer-fashion that this was the doom of MLP as we know it. I lost hope, thinking that it would be a vain show like the Bratz show or anything (other than MLP and LPS) girl oriented. I even started watching the parody series, thinking that this parody was as good as it was going to get for Equestria Girls...

That is, until the trailer came out...

Oh...
My...
CELESTIA, u gais...

EQUESTRIA GIRLS MAY ACTUALLY BE GOOD!!!


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!

!

Anyway, I really want to see it now. Except if I go alone, I'll look like a creep/pedophile, and if I go with the brony friends I have...oh, who am I kidding? I HAVE LITERALLY ZERO BRONY FRIENDS!!! :( If only I was a babysitter to a couple of little girls who actually LIKED this kind of wonderful cotton-candy wonderment! You're probably saying "well, why don't you take the kids you babysit to watch the damn movie?" Well, there are two problems with this situation: a.I don't babysit, because b. I don't like kids.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Anyway, I'll just have to deal w/ my new-found zeal. But, onto the other news!


My birthday is in less than a month!

I'm going to count down the time it takes until my birthday hits, which, BTW, is three days before Equestria Girls!!! I'm going to post it on CVON so all you slaves can look upon the day when you shall pay homage to your Supreme Overlord, RS!!! (just kidding...) ;)

Anyway, I'll give you the EQG trailer link, if you're interested.

Have a lovely rest of the day! :)
<3, RS

p.p.s. LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!
