The New Year!!

If you use this picture credit it to me.

Hello everyone! As you know, 2014 is coming to an end. And the new year 2015 will soon arise. 2014 has been a magnificent year for me. I've had all the luck! Over the past year, I've made so many friends, and I lost a couple of friends. I gained wonderful experiences like going to the Discovery Girl summit and meeting this girl and this girl there. I learned many new things and improved so much at different sorts of things. 2014 is also the year that I started blogging.

As the new year arises, it's the perfect time to think about how to improve yourself, make things better. It's a new beginning and chance for a great year, as a great person. It's important to embrace this chance and the many beginnings and the years we have. The years to gain new experiences, learn new things, etc. are a blessing and something that we should use. 2014 was a great year for me, but maybe not for everybody. To those of you that haven't had the best year, now's the chance to have a great one.  It's time to change your mindset to a positive one and look forward to all the experiences of 2015 and know that you're capable of making your own year amazing! You can choose how you want to improve, take on experiences, etc...  I don't know exactly what will happen in the coming, whether or not it's bad or good. But, I'm ready to take it on.  

Things to be excited about in 2015:

  • My first blog anniversary on February 1
  • Going on a trip!
  • Reading new books and Watching new movies and shows
  • The issue of discovery girls that I'm in as a discovery girl coming out
  • Harry Potter(I'm always excited about Harry Potter)
  • Graduation(The food there!)
  • Starting Middle School(It's a chance for meeting new people!)
  • etc...........

2014 Favorites:

Food:

  1. Pepperidge Farm Gingerman are wonderful simple sugary delights. You can buy them here.
  2. The Nutella hazelnut spread with cocoa is something that we've all ate. You can buy them here.
  3. Red Velvet Cake is delicious, moist, and sweet but I don't like the frosting..so I only eat the cake! 
  4. Making coffee and tea. I don't like coffee but there was a recent chain of coffee/tea incidents. I only made coffee one time for my mom a few days ago, and it exploded in the microwave and I cleaned it up. The next day my mom was making tea for my dad..and it exploded in the microwave. The day after that, my dad was making tea for himself...and it exploded in the microwave. 
Books:
  1. The Clay Lion is possibly the best book I've ever read...maybe..I've read a lot of books. See here for a description of what it is about. 
  2. Tin Men is the sequel to The Clay Lion. It's not as good, but still is amazing. See here for a  description of the book. 
  3. The Harry Potter series. I re-read them a while ago and I will always love the books. If you have not read them, I EXTREMELY advise that you buy all the books this instant and do. See here for a description of the books. 
Some of my favorite blogs(There are so many more blogs that I love than the ones listed here, but due to time, I can't list them all.)

New Year Resolutions: 

1. Blog more. I haven't been blogging as much as I'd like too. I've been posting about once a week and I think that from now, I'll try to post 2-3 times a week. 

2. Start doing yoga more often. 

3. Stop thinking that I have to get everything right on the first try. #coffee/tea incident

4. Finish writing my nanowrimo novel

Blogging: 5 Tips about blog designs

Hello!!! A blog's design is definitely an important part of your blog. Of course, the content is what really matters. But, most people won't even bother to read your posts, unless they like the look of your blog. So, I wanted to give you some tips about designing your blog!

1. Have a simple back round. I really like plain white back rounds. White goes with anything and it keeps your blog looking professional. Other solid bold colors are also good for back rounds.

2.  Make your header pretty but not too flashy or intricate. You want your readers to focus on your post and not get distracted.

3. Use color combinations. Try to limit the color scheme on your blog to 2-3 colors.

4. Don't clutter up your sidebar. Put the necessary gadgets on first such as a follow button, blog button, an archive, etc...You can even leave your sidebar completely blank and have all your gadgets placed at the bottom of your blog.

5. Make sure you write your posts in a readable font. Normal Calbri font or Times New Roman should do just fine. Also, remember to not have too many fonts across your blog. 3 is a good amount(header, sidebar/date, post content)

Flowers

1. Flowers are very interesting. In the spring, they bloom, and in the winter they fall down. But, at the time, when the next spring comes, they bloom back again. They bloom again, knowing that they will probably fall down. But, they also know, that they'll bloom again. We can too. We can rise after we fall down. Rising, stronger, more powerful, from our experiences. Knowing, we'll probably fall down again, but we will get up. Be courageous. Be strong, You can rise from bad experiences.

A Needed Life Update and A Survey

JLately, everybody's been getting sick. There's coughs and sneezes echoing all over the room, people grasping the last tissues in the box. Five people were absent in my class yesterday, and in some classes, over half is missing! Of course, one of our absences was due to someone in our class, who had moved across the country without telling us! Well, he did actually tell some of his very close friends(and what proves that they were good friends of his is that everybody who didn't wasn't told was surprised) but many didn't know. That person, suddenly didn't show up in school around two days ago, and we were given the news that he moved. I wasn't friends with him, but I did talk to him, and it was sad news for our whole class. If, only he told us, we could have at least said goodbye.

Some piece of writing that I randomly wrote

I just kind of randomly wrote this right now:


Slowly, rising from the murky water, that had so willingly pulled Endon down, he looked toward the enemy with grim determination, and then turned his head to the weakling men behind him.
"Fight!" he bellowed.
