It seems like it’s been ages since I last posted! I always forget how crazy the post-holiday season is; catching up on school and sickness leave little time for blogging. Anyways, I’m back from my unexpected hiatus with a couple of updates and some exciting news:
I GOT BRACES!!!
Apparently, I was supposed to get them sooner (according to the orthodontist) but at least I have them now, and they already making a difference in my smile. I also got a palate expander which is making life…interesting…to say the least. I can’t talk right or eat right with the expander. I’m hoping I only have to have it in for a little while longer.
Another exciting thing that happened last week was that my brother and I got to go see The Return of the King in a theater!!! There’s an old opera house near me that was turned into a movie theater where they only show classic movies such as Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, It’s a Wonderful Life (we went and saw that in December), Home Alone, LotR, and others of that type. It was so much fun to see RotK with tons of other LotR fans; we even dressed up (I went as Tauriel and my brother as Frodo) and got to go up on stage! The audience voted on which costume they liked best (my brother and I did not win; unfortunately) and the winner got a beautiful copy of one of Tolkien’s works. During the movie, the audience would cheer for the heroes (Sam got TONS of cheers) and boo for the villains (Denethor was booed quite often), and recite all the lines. We had a great time.I also officially have a new WIP: my OYAN (One Year Adventure Novel) assignment-
Of Silver, Shipmates, and Strange Tides
(title to potentially change sometime in the future)
I wasn’t thrilled about starting this novel; it’s not my greatest story idea and the characters are not going to be easy to make believable, but I’m starting to get excited about it.
Here’s the story synopsis:
Eden Claire is an orphaned serving girl in England. Living her lonely life working in the library of a boarding school, she begins to think that she must always settle for less, and that her dreams of comradeship, adventure, and sailing to unknown lands must slowly dwindle away to nothing.
However, when an old forgotten acquaintance shows up on her doorstep with a note left to Eden by her father, those dreams might just become rekindled; dreams that will take Eden to wild escapades on the high seas.
Eden must outwit the notorious Damian the Black Hearted and his gang of pirates in her quest for her father’s treasure, but she cannot do it alone-she will need the help of others. Can she learn how important true friendship is, even at the cost of losing the treasure…and possibly her own life?
And here are some aesthetics (because I can’t start a story without making an aesthetic first XD).
Isn't that awesome?!?! XD
Now, let’s talk! What’s been going on in your life? Does anyone else have braces? Which LotR movie is your favorite? What do you think of my new WIP?
