Soul

Posted on

Hey guys! So I said only part one was published for my story Everglades, but it’s going to be the only part. Sorry if you liked the story, but I guess I just kinda lost inspiration for it. I had no ideas (since you guys don’t ever comment stories ideas 😒)! But I had recently started reading the Divergent series so I wrote this story. You can call it a fan fiction, but I don’t think it’s that alike… Anyway, enjoy!

P.S: Please comment story ideas! When I have writer’s block, I have seriously bad writer’s block. The last one almost killed me, so if you don’t want me to die, comment! Thanks!

P.P.S: What do you guys think about a part two for Soul😏?


So this is how it’s going to be, huh? Well, you can change our actions, but you can’t change our soul! I snarled angrily in my head. I’ve had absolutely enough of Adrian and Halo. Heck, I’m actually wishing I was a Horn or a White Blade. Stomping out of the Caliper Room, I made a beeline for Willow-Birch; Willow-Birch was an extremely pale birch tree. I called it Willow because my brother had mixed it up with a willow tree. I know, you’re probably thinking I’m so delusional that I’m naming nature now; but I have to admit, I’m a bit lonely. Whether it’s because I’m so much more a Horn than a Halo, or I’m just a strange girl who lost her marbles, I really stand out as the weirdo, the oddball, the misfit. And it’s not always that nice to be different.

On Willow-Birch perched a crude looking tree house. My brother and I had built it a few years ago; it was the last thing we did together before he left.Without hesitation, I grabbed the ladder and made my way up. This place had brought back so many memories of the past, even if it wasn’t there to witness or experience it. The floorboards creaked in protest as I trudged in the treehouse. I eyed the photo album of only me and my brother but decided against it. A squirrel made a loud thump as it landed on the roof of the treehouse and I nearly jumped out of my skin. I was always nervous and jumpy whenever I did this, it was against the laws of Halo. Halo Peacekeepers would arrest me if they found out, especially since I had stolen this glass ball. Taking a deep breath, I spoke clearly but quietly, “ Show me Kyle Halo.”

“Hey sis, missed me much?”


Everglades (Part One)

Posted on

Sorry guys! I haven’t updated in a while so I wrote a really sucky story after 4 hours of brainstorming. I don’t have a lot of time (funny, since it’s summer vacation) so this is just part one. Again, sorry for how badly written it is, enjoy.


I ducked behind a bush and attempted to catch my breath. Today had been an especially bloody day, and I do not enjoy being turned into a corpse.

“Come out you coward!” The girl who was chasing me yelled. “Fight me face to face!”

And become one of those mutts? Right.

I walked up behind her and waited for her to turn around. When she did, shock was clear on her face, though it quickly turned into pain. She yelped, seeing that I had stabbed my knife clear through her stomach. “So sorry, good night,” I muttered and stepped back as the ground swallowed the girl. It was the 17th day; the 17th day of torture; the 17th day of death. I scrounged the forest for food, no luck, so if I didn’t want to starve, I had to go into the Everglades. And I probably wasn’t going to make it out of that cursed place in one piece.

Two voices raged in my head as I approached the Everglades,

“How puny would it be to die of hunger? After all this, you die to a natural cause!”

“You know about the Everglades! You know how many they killed! You aren’t special in any way, what makes you think you can do it?”

I shushed the second voice, my breaths rattled and I plunged into the Everglades. As I did so, I felt a surge of power; or recklessness.

That’s right! I thought to whoever created the Everglades, I just signed my own death contract, who’s a coward now?


Notices

Posted on

Okay, so it’s summer. Yay! But that also means my “blogging schedule” will be changed.

First of all, the Videos of the Week will be stopped until September. It’s quite tiring to keep on looking for videos every week because I’m a pretty busy person.

Second, I might be less frequent on certain types of posts…

I might be adding more notices but this is all I can think of right now, so bye!



Things I Just Realized

Posted on

So, another random post about things I just realized recently! Enjoy!

#1 We cook bacon and bake cookies (say: cook bacon bake cookies slowly if you don’t understand)…

#2 The Hunger Games series has 3 books, 23 people died each year in the games, and there are 12 districts. The Hunger Games movie came out on 3/23/12.

#3 Think about it, the brain technically named itself.

#4 The nursery rhythm never said Humpty Dumpty was an egg…

#5 The work “ok” is a sideways person.

#6 (This is probably just me…)OMG, you, like, totally read this in an annoying girl’s voice!

#7 Think of a number, double it, add six, divide it by two, subtract the number you started with from it, your answer is three.


Random Things

Posted on

Just a post of random stuff. Quotes, can you relate, lots of stuff. Enjoy, and tell me if you laughed or smiled.

P.S: Tell me if you think I should post more of this!

P.P.S: Do you guys like the new theme?

#1 Have any of you guys laughed so hard, no sound came out, so you just sit there clapping like a retarded seal?

#2 Does anybody actually read the terms and conditions (when you update your device)?!

#3 “Did you just fall?” “No, I attacked the floor!” “Backwards?!” “I’m freaking talented!”

#4 That depressing moment when you’re done with your book, the library is closed, and you’ve already read every single book you own.

#5 My friend thinks she’s smart, she says onions are the only type of food that can make you cry. So I threw a coconut at her face.

#6 The really depressing moment when you realize that the pizza delivery gets to your house faster than the police.

#7 “I just watched a movie where a man’s wife was brutally murdered and was left with his only alive son. His son gets kidnapped, and the man had to chase after his son thousands of miles with the help of a mentally disabled woman.” “Sounds good, what’s the movie called?” “Finding Nemo.”


Going Again to… Tuttabella Trattoria!

Posted on

Do you like Italian food? Maybe pasta, or raviolis? Well, give Tuttabella Trattoria a try. An Italian restaurant on the corner of White Plains Rd and New Wilmot Rd. The restaurant is open from:

Monday to Thursday: 12 PM – 10 PM

Friday to Saturday: 12 PM – 11 PM

Sunday: 12PM– 10 PM.

I had been to Tuttabella only recently but I think it is a great restaurant you should try.

I have only gone to Tuttabella Trattoria for dinner, which is what I am going to review, but there is a lunch menu, a party menu, and a catering menu as well. One thing I don’t like is that the menus are written in Italian. The restaurant serves you water and bread first with olive oil first, then the waiters will give you your menus you can order appetizers like Shrimp Cocktail and Clams Casino (baked little neck clams with bacon, roasted pepper, and capers). The main course consists of soup, salad, pasta, chicken, veals, seafood, meat, and sides. I really liked the Ravioli al Pomodoro (cheese ravioli in a fresh tomato sauce). There is dessert as well, however, it is not written on the menu. The waiter will also give you with a list of that day’s specials, and you are able to order special plates for your allergies or special diets. Tuttabella is also fairly priced, it isn’t too expensive but the food is still great.

The waiters and waitresses are very nice, they are all dressed nicely and alike. Sometimes they even interact with their guests! There usually isn’t too much waiting needed but it depends on when you come to the restaurant. The ambiance isn’t too dark, but it isn’t very bright and the whole restaurant is lit by candlelight. The restaurant is Italian so the decor is Italian as well, there are even pictures of Italy in the past on the walls. The restaurant doesn’t have any rules about loudness but somehow it is just naturally quiet.

Overall, I really like Tuttabella Trattoria and would like to go again. The food is Italian but I think most people would like it. I would give it  4.5 stars.

Capstone – Picking a Topic

Posted on

Hi guys! Today I’m going to be posting about my Capstone! Capstone is basically an independent, end-of-the-year research project. And I will be telling you about how I chose, my topic.

Our Capstone topic was due tomorrow, and I had no idea what I was going to do. I needed a topic that I liked, is interesting, and researchable. I was panicking, what if I couldn’t find a topic? I thought about the time when I had found a good research topic on the internet, so I decided to surf the web.

In the end, after lots of searching, trial and error, and panicking, I found my topic. After looking through YouTube, I saw a video about how video games can be good for you, and I thought it would be a cool topic to study. I was a gamer, so I’ve listened to my parents telling me about why video games are bad for you for a long time. Learning about the good sides of gaming sounded very interesting, and I’m sure lots of kids will agree with me.

The next day, I proposed my idea to my teacher, Mr. Besancon, and it was approved. The Capstone museum is coming in less than 2 weeks, and I can’t wait for everyone to see my project! I really like my topic, and I hope everyone else will too.

Ever a Friend

Posted on

Hi everyone! I’m back! I know, I took a long break, sorry. But I’ve been trying to get Thais, Adelina, Angela, and Anjali to finish their part for the Writing Olympics… But here is a story I wrote awhile ago, enjoy!

P.S: This is somewhat a Maze Runner fan fiction so…

________________________________________________________________________________

An inhuman howl ripped through the night.

“Willow, no!”

I took a step back from my best friend Willow. One minute she was perfectly fine, next she had her knife out and was snarling from me to go.

“Run,” came her strangled cry, “before I kill you!”

“Why?! What’s wrong with you?!” But the truth dawned on me even before I asked.

She gave me a smile, but her eyes were crazed, broken, “it’s got me.”

I swallowed the lump in my throat, “maybe we can get you to the hospital, or… or…” Or what?

A growl up off my sentence, “too late! The madness has taken over.” Her shrill cry nearly deafened me.

Suddenly, Willow stumbled forward and her knife clattered out of her hand, landing on the mossy ground. I reached out to help her out, but she reeled back, avoiding my hand.

“Don’t, don’t touch me!”

I let my hands fall limply at my sides, staring in horror at what used to be my best friend. Within minutes, she had become a crazy, insane, animal-like human. The Flare has definitely gotten her.

“Please,” I begged. “Come back! What about your family?!” I realized in sadness at what Willow’s parents would have to suffer through, their only daughter with the Flare.

“Lena!” This time Willow’s voice was a hoarse whisper. “Lena, please.” She started to yell again, her voice becoming more and raspier.

“Willow…” Fear closed around my stomach and it spread through my body, filling me with terror. I couldn’t bring myself to run away, from my only best friend.

Willow’s eyes were desperate, “Lena, please. Kill me.”

I froze, did Willow really say that? No, “what-”

Willow doubled over, clutching her head, “Listen!”

She took a rattly breath and straightened out as much as she could, “I can’t live like this forever. Please Lena, if I was ever a friend, kill me.”

She stuffed her knife into my hand, “do it.”

I looked into Willow’s eyes, shattered, forever. She doesn’t want to live anymore, “as your last favor?” My hand was shaking so hard I thought I was going to drop her knife.

“Last favor.”

Before I could change my mind, I plunged the knife into my best friend’s chest.

She fell to the ground and I knelt next to her, “thank you.”

She gave me the smile I always thought of her with, “Willow…” I couldn’t swallow the lump in my throat.

“Lena, thank you.”

I took her hand as she closed her eyes, forever.
