I'm so amazing! It's incredible 'cause I use to have this huge crush on the guy for like a year and a half.  He's sooo adorable. Wait, here as a picture:

Happy Turkey Day, America!

So what is Thanksgiving? Let me tell you what the old folks call it: "It's a wonderful time where the whole family gets together and shares a magical meal and give thanks for being with one another." Okay, maybe they don't say 'magical', but you get my point right? It's not the same anymore.  Due to this economic downfall we're in--and these stupid department stores who are open today with "fantastic deals"--people have to work to make money for their family, even if that means having to miss out on spending time with them.  It's really terrible how desperate and shallow America has gotten. 

But whatever, it's Thanksgiving.  Time for those truly in thanks to celebrate what God has given us: food to eat, a house to call home, and a family we can love.

Here's my thanks:

Thank you, firstly, for the love of God.  Though, some days I may have my doubts, I know that in the end I can look to you for help.

Thank you, followers: Addie, Ninja_Lover, Deidre Natáe, Gabrielle, Beca, ЯANdOM ЯAWR ◊, Mizz Ali, Pandora, Roxy, Selina Phillips, shivi_the_sheep, BB. Thanks for you loyalty and kindness.  I really haven't been on my A game lately, but some of you followed or continued to follow me anyway.  I couldn't ask for a better group of followers. Thank you.
-Also thank you to those who regularly comment.  I truly appreciate it and make an effort to comment on your blog as well.

Thank you Hannah and Lauren (Jen too! I don't know if you still read or not, but just in case.) You've been so supportive and helpful these last month.
Hannah--OMG if I didn't have you I'd be totally lost on DA.  Thank you! <3
Lauren--Who could ask for a more true friend than you!  Thanks for listening to me and giving me feedback on my art.  Lylas!
Jen--Thanks for inviting me to that Halloween thing, that was totally fun. (I had creepy dreams of Michael Meyers..) I still have some Halloween candy left, and no, you may not have some. xP



Something to get into the mood of Thanksgiving--LINK, LINK

Listening to Kanye's new CD! It. Is. AWESOME!

Oh, and please don't forget to comment on He's Just A Dreamer. I need all the help I can get on the subject.  ):

He's Just A Dreamer

Goal of today: Make a better post than yesterday.

I don't know why, but when I read over my previous post it bothered me real badly. I think I'm losing my touch.  And that scares me.  I want to be a better blogger.  So from now on I will do my hardest to make nicely formed posts. d(^.^)
Oh boy.  You guys are going to love this.  I'm having guy troubles again.  Not the same guy from before--we are actually friends now--,but someone different.  Let me start from the beginning:

So about a month ago, I went to the amusement park with a bunch of my friends at last minute.  My friend Tom* invited one of his friends that most of us had never met before.  We'll call this friend Sid.  While waiting in one of the long lines,  Sid and I started talking.  During our conversations, we realized that we had a lot in common.  So the whole time we would flirt and talk and it was going great.  I kept thinking: Wow, this guy is really cool.  I've gotten really lucky.  My friends agreed.  And we went on having a great time.  But towards the end,  I had this odd feeling.  Like I sort of indirectly knew Sid.  I kept trying to figure out how.  And when the night was over, while heading home, I realized how I knew him.  He had dated a good friend of mine, Wendy*.  All the sudden I felt terrible.  I felt like I had betrayed her by flirting with Sid.  After that I couldn't get it out of my mind. The guilt was piling up with every thought of Sid. 

The next day, I'm sitting on my bed doing some work when I get a text from Tom.  Tom and I texted each other for a while until he finally asks if I like Sid.  I say sorta and explain to him that I don't want to take it further due to his connection with Wendy (Girl Code).  He said he understood.  A few seconds later, I get a text from Sid.  I tell him in a lengthy text about the situation and that I want to stay loyal to Wendy, but would love to just be friends.  I was relieved to find that he understood and agreed.  (Later, I texted Wendy and told her everything.  She said it was fine.)

Weeks went by, and I was getting unsure. We had been texting each other everyday--more like he was texting me--, and I was getting uneasy. He was very obvious that he liked me.  That didn't bother me too much, 'cause of course I liked him too.  What was so uncomfortable was that he was asking me all these dating questions.  For example, we decided to play 20 questions.  I kept asking get-to-you questions, like "How many brothers and sisters do you have?" or "Any pets?" He would ask me stuff like: "What kind of guy are you looking for?" and "Hug, kiss, or hold hands?" I finally had to tell him to knock it off and backed down and we went on to more comfortable subjects. 

At this point I was starting to get a change in heart.  No longer was he that sweet funny guy; he was getting to be an creep.  I was getting reluctant to text him back more and more.  He'd ask me every week if I'd like to go somewhere with him and our friends.  I was grateful--and still am--that I was literally socially packed.

I wanted to tell Tom, but I felt like I'd make him upset that I don't like his friend--they were friends longer than we were.  So I decided to keep it to myself.

Two weeks later, on a Saturday, I was reading a book when I get a text message... Sid.  Great.  We talk for a little.  Then, it happened.  He asks me to go to a dance with him.  I'm really pissed. I feel like he had completely disregarded what I told him that I just wanted to keep it at friend level and he just asked me on a date. Fuming, I text back: "U kno y i cant."  Moments later: "We'd jst go as friends. :)" I pause.  Could that work.  The first word that pops in my head says "no".  And I know it's true.  It may be a frate, but to me it'll feel like at date.  I call up Wendy and I tell her what's happened. She remains calm--unlike me--and says if I want to go, then go.  I tell her that I'm unsure and explain what has happened over the past two weeks.  This is when she sounds a bit concerned.  "From what it sounds like, it seems that he wants to be more that friends." Duh! I ask, "What should I do?" Wendy: "Well if you go just know, he's going to try to get you to be his girlfriend." Knew it. "Okaay..." Wendy: "What are you going to do?" Me: "I-i don't think I can do it."

I texted Sid back and said, "You kno I can't. Im sry." Sid: "Evn as friends? It's not a date." Me: "It'd still feel like one. I'm sry."  Sid: "uh thats okay. ttyl. bye." And that was the last I heard from him. Err, that's what I thought.

He texted me recently, asking for forgiveness.  And, foolish me, forgave him--but warned him that I'm still POed and that he's walking on thin ice.  Now he texts me every once a while, but here's the problem: I still can't .. trust him? Moreover, I don't want to ever talk to him, see him, ever.  Well, that's how I feel anyway.  So what should I do? Should I keep texting him? Or ignore him?

[Btw, Tom knows everything.  I told him.  He said that he'd talk to Sid--this was before Sid apologized. I have a sneaking suspicion that maybe that's why he apologized.  Hmm.]

Still needs to be penned and labeled.  :) Will be on DA soon.

Glee: Is Sue Getting Married?

Finally! I caught up! I loved Gwyneth Paltrow! I hope she comes back.

Uhh, what's been going on with the show? I mean, really.  The plot has seriously gotten complicated.  It didn't bother me as much last year, but this year it's gone down Wackyville.

Okay really? Brittney and Arty? NO! What happened to Arty and Tina? Argh!

And let me get this straight: Is Sue Sylvester getting married? Please tell me.  O.o

Well my symptoms made a turn for the worst.  I felt awful this morning.  My mouth was swollen again and my teeth were ringing with pain.  Ugh.  I never want to have to do this again.

I've posted my first story chapter on DA. Check it out!

Part 1

Part 2

Okay sorry, this post sucked.  I'll try better next time.

150th Post (The Outspoken Blog Award) [EDITED]


The Beatles are on iTunes! YAY! I'm extremely happy.  I've been waiting for this day for years!
Let's give a moment of gratitude to Apple Inc. and the magnificant band.

Okay, moving on now...

All you really need is love. That's what I've learned over this past week.  Grams funeral wasn't as difficult as Gramps, but maybe I'm stronger. Back when Grandpa died, I was numb. I didn't wrap my head around it. But at the funeral, I kept thinking "this is the last time I'll ever see him in this life" and went on thinking of memories we created.  This time around I kept the sedimentals out. I know that may sound terrible, but it was either that or bawl and I had to be strong for the family since they were all in tears or were on the verge of it. I got through it, the buriel ground is always hard to take though. And then again, I think of that day I found out that my grandpa died.  It was the day after my first post on this blog. I had no followers at the time and so basically I was blogging to no one.  There was no one saying sweet and kind things to me and making the pain a little less unbearable.  This time around I had the support of some great followers who really helped this griefing process go faster.  So I want to say thanks to those who showed concern and helped me through this. *From Me To You!*

Tomorrow is the day I get my wisdom teeth out.  All four of them.  I'm super scared.  Not just the needle, but of my Dad. I think he's going to bring a video camera when he picks me up and I'm afraid I'm going to say stupid stuff like "Is this the real world?" or "ARRRGHHHAAAAAH!". Lord, help me!

So who won "The Outspoken Blog Award"? Well [there was] one participate. Uh, sorta. And well, I checked her link and it didn't really lead me to a regular blog.  It moreover led me to a food recipe blog.  Sorry hun, I didn't see anything that went with the requirements of this award.
So now, I have to decide from my followers.  Which one filled these credits?

-You have to have at least 3-5 blog posts that have topics you either strongly oppose or strongly like
-You must create and post them before my 150th!
- They must be at least a paragraph long, including why you like or dislike that topic, what you would do about it, etc.

The winner of the award is:


(ЯANdOM ЯAWR has permission to take this picture and place it on her blog.)

The reason why I chose RR was because she met the requirements!
[Congrats RR! Sorry for the very badly edited blog post. Bad job on my part. (I might have fallen asleep half way through the creating of this post..haha my bad.) ]

Getting The Ball Rolling...

I need to start practicing my writing skills. I feel so amateur when I know I can do better if I put my heart into it.  What caused this motivation? Well due to unexpected yet frightening events, I'm very excited to show my teacher just how capable I can be at being an artist/writer.
So expect more art and writing on here and on DA (The writing would be more on DA than here, though.  Sorry.)

Also, I've noticed that I've got off track from my true goal of this blog: to answer those unique questions that other sites don't answer or don't have.  I'm so excited and happy that I get about 3 or 4 responses each post.  And I would like to encourage you to ask anything that is on your mind and that you won't mind me answering either by comment post or blog post. 

I'm currently working on making an email address, but I have a formspring. (There's a widget at the right if you'd like to ask a question!) and DA account (though anyone w/o a log-in can't post a comment. ).

[EDITED--Contact's list is to the right, right before the Formspring widget!]

Oh, and I just got news today that my Gram is back in the hospital. Her heart just couldn't stay strong and so she has to get help from the docs again.  I'm really scared for her.  My dad says she sounds like she lacks the motivation to live.
Guys, I need all the help I can get for this.  I appreciated your prayers before please help me out now. x(
I love you all.

Good luck, live strong.

My Response

Hey everyone.  Well, my week just went by very peachy.  I failed my test.  I felt like many people were either pissed or annoyed with me.  I think the only person I was able to talk to was Lauren.
Gosh, when will this stress stop?  Seriously, I'm been getting terrible headaches and I keep wanting to fall asleep.  I'm like a walking zombie!

So above you can see that ЯANdOM ЯAWR commented on my latest post. Here's my response: My grandma is in okay condition. She's back at home now with an oxygen tank.  I think it really helped taking her to the hospital and getting her looked at.  We think that she's been suffering with this for a while, but never told anyone because she doesn't like to worry people.  I love Grandma, but I wish she wouldn't do that. I don't want to have to lose another family member again in such a small time span from my grandpa's death.
Secondly, I like DA. I think they could pick a better background color. (I mean grey? Seriously? It's boring!) I've thought of Flickr, but I like doing my scanning because of the clean picture.  If DA fails on me again, I'll check it out.  I know Hannah uploads beautiful photographs on DA.  I could ask her how she upload hers for you if you want? Here's her site:

Thanks RR.

Also, thanks to all who commented: RR, Deidre, and Daphne. I really appreciate all your kind words about my grandma.  Thanks you guys; I love you all!

Oh and Welcome Ninja_Lover! I love ninjas! :)

Here are some quotes that I really liked from Deidre's Blog:
  • "Close your eyes. Clear your heart. Let it go." -- I hold on to things too soon and too long.  I wish I could just let it go.
  • "You live and let live and eventually that becomes enough." --I feel like I get too involved with other people's problems, either out of concern or involuntarily get sucked into it. I wish I had a backbone and say, "No, I don't need your drama."
  • "A woman's heart should be so lost in God, that a man must seek Him in order to find her." --I wish girls would stop throwing themselves out to men just to feel wanted and love.  There is a better way, it's The Way.  God's way.  The right guy will see this love in you and he'll be the one wanting you.
  • "I think the worst feeling is being forgotten about by someone you know you could never forget." --I hate it when I run into someone who I thought I knew well and they act like they don't know you.
  • "I can take the despair, it's hope I can't stand." --I'm thinking about putting this quote in a story I'm working on; I think that it'd be perfect.
  • "Freedom lies in being bold!" --Ha, I wish I could be bold.
  • "Stand for what you believe in, even if you're standing alone."
  • "Be better than you were yesterday."
  • "Nothing shows a man's character more than what he laughs at." --This is so true. xP
This one is my favorite: "When life hands you lemons, screw lemonade, squeeze them in someones eyes and run like hell!"

Keep up the good work Deidre!
You guys like the new background?

So Long To DA?

Which is suppose to be drawn like "The Starry Night".

Look familiar? Maybe it's because it's based off my mountain picture from my small sketchbook. LINK
What do you think?

Well, my Grandma's in the hospital.  Part of her heart is in bad condition.  Things aren't going well.  I'm very worried.

Please keep her in your prayers.

I'm so tired.  It's so bad I'm starting to drink energy drinks.  I never do that unless I'm falling asleep too much throughout the day.  This bad.

Oh, and more lovely news. I'm going to get my wisdom teeth taken out on Nov. 19. Omg NEEDLES!

So I'm thinking about deactivating my Deviantart account. Why? Because I'm pretty sure that it messed with my connection with the Internet.  Something about turning off my "processor"? Anyways, I can't be getting on sites that mess with my computer like that.  I have more important and immediate concerns to be worried about.  Plus, I have this site, and it doesn't give me any problems. Soo. Yeah.  *sigh* I don't know exactly what to do.  I really do like DA, and I like promoting my art.  .  . Hmm.

I'm going to test it out.  See if it happens again. I know how to fix it now so if it does do it again I'll can just flip a switch and fix it.  Sorry, Hannah. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!


The contest for "The Outspoken Blog" is almost coming to a close....Who will win?

Welcome Deidre to That's What She Said! Hope you have a fantastic time on my blog! Don't forget to comment! :D
