Life Doesn't Wait (for you)

I've been thinking On several things Happy for the rain So the grass is finally green I might like to go around the world Let my flags unfurl Get some wind through my hair I've been waiting far too long Time to get goin'
I'm out the door Like a snail at first I like to take things slow So I start crawling when I go Up the mountain Climb with all my might Can't be too hard, right? But after the gunshot (bang) Then I'm at the top Climbing back down the other side Didn't take me long After I figured out that Life doesn't wait (for you)
I've been exploring Beyond my usual horizons Finding a sweet new vision A new dream to dream I'm looking for a star to wish upon This quest that I'm on Calling me forward I've been waiting far too long Time to get goin'
I'm out the door Like a snail at first I like to take things slow So I start crawling when I go Up the mountain Climb with all my might But after the gunshot (bang) Then I'm at the top Climbing back down the other side D…

Got some stories!

I've now got a story started on my Wattpad and Fanfiction accounts.  It's the same story called Paladins: The First Years.  If you want to know what the story's about, go check out either, or both, of those links!  In case you hadn't noticed, I really, really love comments.  Even ones that are just saying that I misspelled something are okay because at least it was a person reading my story!!!!  I'm so psyched about this, can you tell?

I won't be regular about putting chapters up, because hey, September's almost here and wow, it is crunching down on me.  Being a senior is really going to take it out of me, so if you can, please show you're a supporter of me, and comment or vote or like or whatever.  Thanks so much!!!!

Fan Fiction

I've done it. I've fallen into the web. I used to be skeptical about fan fiction, but now I'm hooked. Nobody can beat the original author's way of creating a world, but it's so much fun to romp around in them. It's awesome see, because I get to have adventures in cool places, without having to think up all the background stuff! I'm into Harry Potter still, but I'm also in a Tortall mood. I've started a story of my own, and I'll be putting it up on Wattpad, a chapter at a time. I'm so excited! I thought stories had to be extensive, but I've seen ones just about 20 pages, or 3 or 333.

This is going to be epic. I've read this one awesome fan fiction about Lily and James Potter in their seventh year of Hogwarts. It's so cool, I loved it and stayed up till like two in the morning to read it. I'm posting the link for you, seriously, if you look HP, read this!

Come Away With Me (song)

I'm here, child
Lift up your head
I'm here, now
To raise you from the dead
Reach out your hands
I'm waiting for you
Time to come to me
And live in the truth

The burdens of this life
Can weigh you down, down, down
With me by your side
You'll leave the ground, ground, ground
Open up your eyes
You'll never look down, down, down
Come be my bride
Hear the heavenly sound, sound, sound

Trust me, child
To rescue you
Trust me, now
You'll bear the fruit
Surrender to me
I'll take you to the sky
Come away with me
You don't need to cry

The burdens of this life
Can weigh you down, down, down
With me by your side
You'll leave the ground, ground, ground
Open up your eyes
Don't need to look down, down, down
Come be my bride
The heavens resound, sound, sound

(bridge)
Come away with me
Never look down
Come away with me
Never look down
Come away with me
Come be my bride
Come away with me
Live a new life

The burdens of this life
Can weigh you down
With me by your si…

a Not so Brilliant Not New Idea

I was watching part of a video of my sisters and cousins putting on yet another play they'd made up. Anyway, it made me think again about an idea for a sort of King Arthur story parody thing. Yeah, I'm such a great writer, aren't I, saying story parody thing instead of "a story using silly names for the usual characters." I could've just said that in the first place, right? Moving on.

I think it might turn into a series of stories. Do you know the Squire's Tales by Gerald Morris? I LOVE them. Witty, funny, serious at the parts it needs to be serious, just the right amount of normal romance, some magic and mysterious goings-on, ridiculous knights and chivalrous knights, sarcastic squires, unladylike ladies and more. Now you just want to run to the library or bookstore and read them, right? You'd better. They're Young Adult, but I'd recommend them to 13 and up, depending on reading strength. They're really easy for me, but I'm…

a love song that just happened

My baby cousin Annika likes it when we sing to her, so I've made up a few songs. The one I really like though, I've decided to call "Still Lovin' You." I'm going to try and remember the second verse.

Let's sing a song about love
About how very much I love you
Let's sing a song about hugs
About how I love to hug you
Let's sing a song about kisses
About how I love to kiss you
Let's sing a song about wishes
About how I love to wish upon a star
And wish you're weren't so very
Far away
And I promise every minute of
Every hour of every day
I'm still lovin' you

Hey, yeah, yeah,
Hey, yeah, yeah
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah
Still lovin' you
(repeat)

Let's sing a song about friends
About the friends we'll always be
Let's sing a song about hands
About holding hands and feeling free
Let's sing a song about bliss
About the bliss we'll have forever
Let's sing a song about a wish
About a wish that I made about two heart

Mystic's Dream - Loreena McKennitt

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
where the heart moves the stones
there that my heart is longing for 
Calling for, for the love of you

A painting hangs on an ivy wall
Nestled in the emerald moss
The eyes declare a truce of trust
then it draws me far away
deep in the desert twilight
Sand melts in pools of the sky
darkness lays her crimson cloak
lamps will call, call me home

And so it's there my homage's due
Clutched by the still of the night
now I feel, feel you move
And every breath, breath is full
So it's there my homage's due
Clutched by the still of the night
Even the distance feels so near 
All for, for the love of you

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
Where the heart moves the stones 
there that my heart is longin…
