[ story inspiration ]

I like to go on Pinterest and/or Tumblr and look at photos for story inspiration. It helps me come up with writing ideas, since I have horrible writers block. >.<
I thought I would share a few that look like they might have a story behind them, but it is up to you to figure out that story. :) 

I don't know why but I really love this photo. O.o


My new profile picture, don't you just love it? <3_<3

I wanna try and draw this. o-o

this reminded me of Narnia. o.o

What do you think? Any ideas that have popped into your head?

Snow [ winter is here ]

Yes, I am posting about snow. Because why not? •-• Side note: I hope I am not teasing anyone that lives where they are not fortunate to have snow around the holidays, but I also hope that you enjoy this post. :}

don't you just love it when it snows on a Saturday/Sunday morning?

you know it is winter when Starbucks comes out with their holiday cups.

snow storms are my favorite, don't you agree?

winter in the mountains is one of the most beautiful things you can experience.

I love the peacefulness snow brings. 

snow makes everything feel better.

I don't know why, but I just really love this picture.

I love when the snow sprinkles down on my face.

[ white ] Christmas lights are my favorite.

time for reading!

As you can see, I am in a very happy [ ready for Christmas ] mood. :] 

Thanks for reading. <3



wow, this is really late. 

One Direction - Strong

"Think of how much love has been wasted, 
people always trying to escape it."

"I'm sorry if I say, "I need you." 
But I don't care, I'm not scared of love.
'Cause when I'm not with you I'm weaker.
Is that so wrong?
Is it so wrong?
That you make me strong?" 


Thanks for listening. <3 

...I think this my favorite song on the album so far. <3

yay & nay [ 11 ]

- Not posting for FOUR days! I'm so sorry guys. 

- Wanting to give her the hug she deserves but can't. 

a storm.

she's like lightening, ready to crash.
 she's like thunder, ready to roar. 
she's also a cloud. 
soft and gentle, dark and angry.
she's a storm.
an unexpected storm, waiting for her moment.
waiting to crash.
also waiting for the moment when it's all over.
when the clouds turn into a soft shade of pinky orange, 
and the birds whistle that familiar tune.
she's a storm waiting for her end.


yes, I said "pinky".

without pain.

"Without pain, how could we know joy? This is an old argument in the field of thinking about suffering and its stupidity and lack of sophistication could be plumbed for centuries but suffice it to say that the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of chocolate."

Lorde - Ribs

At first I didn't really care for this song when I got it for free on iTunes, but I've warmed up to it. :)

I was going to post "Midnight Memories" by One Direction, but it was a leaked video... So I'm waiting for the song to come out on iTunes. Unless it already did. O.o I'm not a huge fan of it. I like it better now that I've listened to it for the second time. I just thought it was going to be a slower song, and the lyrics didn't seem to go with the tune. Although I must say, I love their new sound. :) 

thanks for reading. <3 

yay & nay [10]


- Starting a blog with my girly. I will post the link soon. ;)


- Christmas feels! \(•-•)/

- Going to the paint store and taking a bunch of paint samples home. Mama was in heaven. •-•

- Talking/fangirling with wonderful people.

- THE DIVERGENT TRAILER. Asdfghjkl, it is so beautiful. <3_<3

- Waiting for Catching Fire.

- Allegiant. Why? Just... why?

-  Being hungry.

- Wanting to hug this girl but can't because she is there and I am here and-- *sobs* I MISS MEH BABY

thanks for reading. <3 

five facts about me. [ #8 ]

::five facts about me::

1. I am terrible at following through on something. Or maybe that is just part of my procrastination. :P

2. I can't go a day without talking to her. She keeps me sane. O-O

3. I am always hungry. Not sure if I already said that before, but I'm gonna say it anyways.

4. I'm really good at acting like I'm okay. I really deserve an award for that.

5. I am the pancake making MASTER. >:D Ask Lila

I haven't done one of these in a while. :P Thanks for reading. <3 

who am i?


 have you ever asked yourself "who am i?" and answered with of course, obvious answers. I am blah blah blah, i live in blah blah blah, and i'm going to blah blah blah school. i mean, of course people are going to wonder what you name is, where you go to school, how old you are. but those are just facts about you, not really who you are. am i correct?
  lately i've asked myself the same question, who am i really?

 i am Mackenzie.
 i am a girl, yes.
 i am tears.
 i am late night conversations.
 i am kindness.
 i am loving.
 i am paper and pencils on a friday night.
 i am last minute worrier.
 i am obsessed.
 i am four slices of pizza.
 i am stay-in-the-corner-of-the-room-so-no-one-will-notice.
 i am a 24\7 dreamer.
 i am the thoughts i hold, the things i love, the people i love, the dreams i dream, i am the drawings i draw, the pictures i take. i am me.

this post was sorta inspired by her
i really wish i could have written this better. oh well. 
thanks for reading. <3 

Allegiant || *no spoilers*

**this post will not have any spoilers in it, just sadness. lots of sadness. but i am looking forward to maybe doing a book review where there will be spoilers and my opinion on the last book in the Divergent trilogy. 

Alright, so I have decided to do my Allegiant post now while I am semi-okay. 
Why do I do this to myself? Why do I read these books when I know what that will do to me afterwards? 
I am so emotionally attached to [fictional] characters, people, animals, and anything else you could think of. I am also very sensitive. I cry to parts of a movie that aren't even that sad. Yes, I am a crier. I cry and when I do, it is not pretty. Last night, while\when I finished this book, I cried so much. I sobbed. I was hyperventilating. I. was. CRYING. That was the hardest I have cried in a very long time. 
I keep telling myself, even though it doesn't work, it is just a book. It's just a book, it's just a book. None of it is real. But that's not true. It is much, much more than "just a book". I fell in love with this series. I grew with the characters. I smiled when the character(s) smiled, I cried when it was time to cry for\with them, and I died right along with them. So don't tell me, not even myself, that it is just a book. I lived and died another life, just like all the other books I have read and will read. Like in that quote when it says: "A reader lives a thousand lives."
 I just lived another life and it won't be my last. 

And with that; I shall go cry and mourn until I am satisfied with the ending of this book, which won't be for a very long time or ever. *sniffles* I-it's over... OVER. *flashback of when I started loving these books* good times... good times...

I have no idea how to rate this book. I loved it and hated it. Part of me wishes I never read it. Veronica Roth, what have you done to me? O.o

Thanks for reading. <4


p.p.s. *SOBS* I am emotionally unstable. O-O

"Burn" || GUYS!!!!

Ellie Goulding - Burn

I have this song stuck in my head. >.< But it is actually really good, so let me know what you think. ;)

ohmygosh, guys!! I haven't been posting that much lately. I know, shame on me. 
I haven't had very many ideas on what to post and I haven't had time to actually get on my laptop.
I'm so sorry! I miss you all. How are you? What's up? Give me the deets! 
I'm almost done with Allegiant. OMG. O_O
Ahhh Catching Fire is almost here, and I cannot contain myself!!
Welp, hopefully I will posting a lot more. Until tomorrow! :)

*hug hug*
 *kiss kiss* 


i miss you

i miss you. 
like a lot. 
i miss you more than you could ever imagine. 
i miss your beauteous smile.
your warm hands.
your pretty voice.
your comfort.
you, i miss you.
it hurts, it hurts not to know when we could be together again. 
because you're there and i'm here. 
my hand is reaching, our hands are reaching. they're so close yet so far away.
they're grasping for a touch. for a feel. 
 to be intertwined with fingers.
my ears are longing, for a sound. a familiar yet strange [good] sound.
they want to hear, the voice to the person that makes me happy.
my eyes yearn to see that smile. 
my arms long to be held in yours.
i, myself, deeply wish to be with your presence. again. and again.
because i [really] miss you.

thanks for reading this [mushy\cheesy] post rant.  




people are like stars,
  no one truly knows what they're like unless you look closely.

look closely.

thanks for reading. <3
