If I were a millionaire.

If I were a millionaire, I'd...


  • buy A LOT of food... like, a lot
  • I would buy everyone I love lots of gifts because I wanna spoil them. *wink wink* 
  • donate money to help find a cure for cancer and diabetes
  • travel
  • buy a small cottage near the water
  • do a lot of volunteer work
  • spend all my free time writing and painting 
  • start an organization to help out--with anything
What would you do if you were a millionaire? 
< ---------------------Comment below! ---------------------> 

I got the idea for this post when Rosie and I were talking about being millionaires... we have a lot of great conversations. Don't we Rosie? •-•  

Boy, is it hot outside or what?! Hopefully I will go for my first summer swim today. Thinking about water just feels nice...

I finally have my posting schedule decided! <--- well, almost. I will talk about it in my weekend post.

Before I go I have to ask you guys a HUGE favor... Is the picture on my sidebar above my 'about me' showing up for you? For some reason I think I did something and now it's not showing up for me. *le sad puppy dog face* 

Hope you guys are enjoying the last day of May! 




I will remember you.


I will remember you. 
Even if you are sitting right next to me.
I will remember you.
I will remember what you did.
What you do. 
For me.
For you.
For us. 
All of us.
Everyone.
It is now apart of who you are, and I won't forget.
I will remember you- a solider.
God's child.
A man.
A woman. 
A fighter.
A survivor.
Because I won't forget what you did or what you do for this country. 
I will remember. 
You- who you are. 
I will remember you. 
 written by me.

>> raining randomness >>



skies cry by ~chibasenka on deviantart

There's somethin' 'bout the way
The street looks when it's just rained
There's a glow off the pavement
you walk me to the car
And you know I wanna ask you to dance right there
In the middle of the parking lot
Yeah
Oh yeah

We're drivin' down the road
I wonder if you know
I'm tryin' so hard not to get caught up now
But you're just so cool
Run your hands through your hair
Absent mindedly makin' me want you

And I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress
Fearless

So baby drive slow
'til we run out of road in this one horse town
I wanna stay right here in this passenger's seat
You put your eyes on me
In this moment now capture it, remember it

Cause I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Well you stood there with me in the doorway
My hands shake
I'm not usually this way but
You pull me in and I'm a little more brave
It's the first kiss,
It's flawless,
Really something,
It's fearless.

Oh yeah
Cause' I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Cuz I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Oh-oh
Oh yeah

i wish.



I wish you knew what I could do for you
 I wish I could be the one to make you happy
make you smile
make you see
what I could do for you and for me
just give me a chance to prove
that I could move that frown
turn it all around
make you see
what I could give
just to see you smile
even if it was only for a while
I plead
just to see
what I could do for you and for me.

if only you could see \\ love \\ wishing

Teen Book Festival

Hiya to my beautiful readers.  How yah doin'? I'm doing well.
So, today I thought I would share with you on where I went on Saturday...


 I went to the Teen Book Festival at Nazareth college. I was in Barnes and Noble a few days before and my sister found a pamphlet about the TBF with the list of authors that will be at the book signing. First of all, who wouldn't want to go to a teen book festival?! And second, I saw that one of the authors of 'Beautiful Creatures', along with another author that I wanted to meet, so, I really wanted to go.
When I arrived there with my family, there was a pretty good amount of people. You were able to purchase merch, jewelry, baked goods, and yes, you guessed it right, BOOKS! Lots of lovely books... <3

After purchasing 'The Hunt' by Andrew Fukuda, I got in line to have it autographed. It turned out that the one author of 'Beautiful Creatures', Margaret Stohl, wasn't able to make it. *le sad puppy dog face* Soooo... Since the lines were getting bigger and the authors hadn't arrived yet, my sister went with my brother to go and get one of our favorite books signed, 'Crewel' by Gennifer Albin, while I waited in line with my other sister to get 'The Hunt' signed.
All the authors there seemed like really cool people. You know, like their personalities. There was this one author ( Kevin Emerson ) that was making these full on conversation with a fan, and he just seemed like a really fun person to talk to. Now I really want to read his book, 'The Lost Code'.
My sister said she had a great time talking to Gennifer Albin and that she is a fangirl just like us!

After we got our books signed and I embarrassed myself, the crowd got even bigger. So we left, with a new book, two autographs, and two t-shirts. It was really fun. There were a lot of geeks \ nerds there, which I was happy about considering I am one. ;)

Can't wait to go again next year!

thanks for reading this very long-ish post...

achievements.



I want to have a certain hug from a very special person

I want to live in the country

I want to overcome my fears

I want to fall in love { and stay in love }

I want to travel

I want to write a book

I want to be a photographer

I want to have kids

I want to care less

I want to try something I would've never thought of trying

I want to make my family proud

I want to help lower the rates of suicides 

I want to go horseback riding on the beach

I want to leave near a beach

I want to make a complete idiot out of myself in public and not even care

I want to have fun 

I want to jump in a pool, while wearing one of those fancy dresses, just 'cause. 

I want to read a 100 books in a year

I want to make a difference 

I want to leave my mark

I want to be happy

I want to

I want to 

I want to...

But will I ever be able to achieve them? Achieve my dreams? All those wants? 
Maybe... someday...

dream big \\ care small 





watching you grow...

Every movement you make

every step that you take

I watch as you grow

grow into something much more than a flower
but into a tree

watch you sprout from the tiniest seed into something much more
bigger, smarter, there you go

I’m watching you grow

I’m watching you grow

\\ written by me // 

This is dedicated to my youngest sister, who I love and care for with all my heart. 

Love, Love, Love...








Well, maybe I'm a crook for stealing your heart away
Yeah, maybe I'm a crook for not caring for it
Yeah, maybe I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad person
Well, baby, I know.

And these fingertips
Will never run through your skin
And those bright blue eyes
Can only meet mine across the room filled with people that are less important than you.

All 'cause you love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love you

So I think it's best we both forget before we dwell on it
The way you held me so tight
All through the night
'Til it was near morning

'Cause you love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love you

All 'cause you love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love you




Love, Love, Love by Of Monsters and Men \\ I just love, love, love this song. <3 

While I was thinking of a post to do today, this song popped into my head. I decided to share it with you. Hope you liked it. :) 

trying to be me...

 
Who am I? 

It's hard to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you someone you're not.
People trying to change one another. Trying to change me. Trying to change you. Trying to change themselves.  
You are the way you are! Why change? Why change when you can be the difference in the world?! Why not be unique? Why not be different? 
I feel like that is what everyone is trying to do these days, to be different. But now that everyone wants to be different, aren't we just following another trend? 
Now how am I going to be different when that is what everyone else is doing?

That's easy.

Be you.

You decide on who you want to be and go be it.  If it's something other people like, fine, but make sure you like it. 

The past year ( or maybe longer ) I've been trying to change. Change me. Change myself so that I would like me better.  I don't know why I'm trying to change, maybe I'd be more proud of myself? So people would like me better? I don't know... 
Who am I?
I feel like every person I meet or every person I know, I'm trying to be like them and not myself. 
"But what is 'myself'? Who is 'me'?" I ask myself. I'll have to try and answer that question someday. It takes time and I'm still learning how to wait. 

So, here I am to tell you, DON'T CHANGE. 
You are perfect just the way you are.
If you change you might even lose something...or someone.

Please stay the way you are and don't ever try and change for someone who can't accept you for the person you are. 


be your own different \\ don't change

smile \\ be happy 

For you...

For you...



Thank you for giving me life.

Thank you for helping me through those times when I didn't understand 
why things are the way they are.

Thank you for showing me that God made us for who we are, don't try and think that you have to change because you're beautiful. God made you. 

Thank you for taking care of me.

Thank you for loving me.

I'm sorry I'm not perfect,

I'm sorry I make mistakes,

I'm sorry for all those times I got upset with you, I didn't mean to. I'm still learning.

Thank you for being my teacher through life.

Thank you for holding me when my tears couldn't hold back any longer.

Thank you. 

Thank you for showing me that you love me. 

Thank you.

Thank you. 

Thank you. 

Thank you. 

I love you binity, Mama. ( yes, binity. ) 

Happy Mother's day !

// writing. //


                                                                                I love this quote. 

Write. Writing. Words. Wonders.




        Writing is just like reading, except it's reading from our minds. 


     Writing is another escape from reality. 

      It's also a way to express yourself. 
                    
I love writing. 

No matter what I'm writing, I feel only words can help me understand my feelings.  Help me express myself. 
I love words. I fall for them. For those luscious words.  Not all words are true, only the words from your heart. Write from your heart, for those are the only true words. 

Speak from the mind.

Write from the heart. 


Write from your heart \\ Use your Words




Note: ( You guys see a pattern in my recent posts? ;) ) 

|| reading. ||

Reading.


I simply love to read.
I honestly don't know how people 'dislike' reading! 
I really don't.

Books.
Books are so beautiful... the way their words flow onto paper and take you to so many places you've never been before, or ever will be. 


Books are an escape. They are my escape.
From when I don't want to deal with life. Or drama. Or stress.

Need a break?


Grab a book.
Any book. There's always something for everyone whether it's romance, action, historic... There's a book for everyone.

I have to confess that, I never really liked reading. I couldn't find the right kind of books I liked to read. Also because I am a slower reader. I just don't want to miss out on anything if I'm reading too fast. * wink wink *

But now...
I cannot go a day without reading.

If I don't have a book to read, I feel lost...empty...like half of me is gone.  

I mean, do I even really need a job? I could go without food. I could.

I prefer to read over...lots of things.
I carry a book with me wherever I go. I always have one in my bag, just in case there's a free chance where I can get some reading in.

If you don't read, surly you are missing out on a lot. 



Find someone who loves to read, and let that person take you on so many adventures.



I want a boy who reads. I don't care about looks or perfection. I like someone who reads. :)





So, pretty much what I'm trying to say is... Read. Read, read, read, read! Find yourself a book that you might be interested in ( there's always something ), pick it up and take yourself into a whole other world. :)



|| Sorry for the lack of posting lately, there's a lot going on. I hope this makes up for it. :) 
Comment what you thought, and thanks for reading. Have a wonderful day. <3  || 



\\ thinking. \\




I am always thinking. 

Always. 

What about? Everything. 

What's everything?

Life.


There's never a time of day I'm not thinking. 

"What if I did this?"

"Would it change to what could have happened?" 


What if all our minds, my mind, took a break? What if there was an 'on' and 'off' switch?

Maybe I could be at peace for a moment, let a few things go.

No.

I care too much.

About everything. 

Why? Why do I care? 

I don't know.

I don't know.

What don't you know? 

About anything. 

written by me. 


|| I apologize for this dramatic post. Just something I like to write about.
Hope you enjoy a few of my words. ||
