Random blabber.

So I went out today with my mom and the weather really annoyed me. I mean my clothes were sticking to my back and I was sweating and I was thirsty and I really wanted to pee but there was no washroom so I had to hold it and yeah…I didn’t like it. 

I crave Ghiradelli’s ice cream now.

And I wanna go someplace where there is snow so that I can roll and make snow angels. 

I started reading Book Thief by Markus Zusak and because there are a few german sentences in there, I began talking to German people on Hello Talk. I don’t even know why I’m reading that book but since I started it, I gotta end it, right? 

I haven’t met my school friends in like seven years so I’m really planning on having a reunion sometime this December but I’m also very nervous because I’m afraid they won’t remember me If I try and call them 😛 They would be like, “Who the hell is this?” 

Though, I’m 94% sure that won’t happen. 

There are times when I’m too desperate and impatient for people to buy my book but then after all the throwing of the pillows on the ground and stuffing a handful of Oreos in my mouth, I say to myself, “You didn’t write to become famous. You wrote because it’s your passion.” And that’s actually true because I didn’t publish my book so that I could get money. I published it because I wanted to see my own story and words in a hardcover and paperback and my dad fulfilled that wish for me. 

I love you, dad. He has supported me all the way and I am utterly grateful to him. My debut novel is, in fact, dedicated to him only. 

Anyway, thank you for reading this short blabbering part of mine and have a great day everyone. 

Don’t give up on things because your time will eventually come when you’re going to rise and rise and never look down again. 

So long~

Writer’s problems

Okay, so we all are writers, we all have problems. I bet you a million bucks if you ever find a writer who doesn’t have problems writing or who doesn’t have a fricking writer’s block because I’m tellin’ ya mate, it’s impossible to find one.

As we, the writers, we go through so much. So damn much that it’s sometimes irritable and you just wanna bang your head on the table and die.

Let me list a few relatable problems that even writers who didn’t even start writing yet, go through.

  1. You open your word, you sit in a nice cozy chair and you crack your knuckles and neck to begin writing but, you remember that you haven’t even given a name to your character or from where he/she is from! So you, my dear, end up spending half of your important day researching names and histories when you would’ve already written, say, a whole one chapter!
  2. You know what you want your character to say, it’s in your mind, it’s on the tip of your tongue, and hell, you even speak out loud in the shower but you don’t know how to get it on the blank page that has been waiting for you for fifteen minutes.
  3. You know where your story is going to go. You know what’s going to happen in the next two or three chapters but you know what’s the problem? No energy or motivation to write…
  4. You are reading my blog instead of writing. I thank you for that, love.
  5. When you go and pee and settle yourself in your warm bed and pull up your sheets, you get a damn brilliant idea and you keep telling yourself that you’ll remember this in the morning but alas, you look like a stranded boy on a stranded island.
  6. The one time when you have the urge to write. When the creative energy in your body is just too much to control, you have no idea what to write. Tut tut tut.
  7. When you get more emotional than the character itself. Like, seriously, while my character is just sniffing, I’m here shedding a waterfall that’s able to fill a 2 liter glass of water!

And last but not the least,

8. Imagining characters like they are alive. I always talk to my sister about my character’s; what wrong they did or what right they did or what the hell their problem is for not confessing to the girl they like!

I hope these problems are relatable with all the writers around the world and if they are not relatable then please, tell me your inner secret of not having these simple problems.

Thank you for reading and so long!

Summer!

So, summer’s kinda nearing guys, I mean, where I live it’s already getting hot and I wish the cold would last long since I love it more than I will ever love summer but I can’t argue with nature because all seasons are important and needs to be treated equally.

THINGS TO DO IN SUMMER!

Summer. What comes first in your mind when you think of the word summer?

Vacation ? Family ? Party with friends? Sleep ? Or Adventure?

Well, undoubtedly there are a lot of things you can do in 3 months.

As in:-

1) Like everyone recommends, go to the beach! Swim in the cool blue sea, make sand castles, tan yourself a little and finally, when the night approaches, lay a blanket on the cold sand and star gaze with the ones you love, be it a person or a pet *wink*

2) With friends or family, enjoy a whole day bowling since I have heard a lot of people say that bowling releases all the tension and the stress. Release some yourself and let out the beast !!!

3) You know what’s more fun? Blowing bubbles! Yaasssss !

4) Summer does make you thirsty, doesn’t it? Hm..what’s the best drink to quench your thirst then? I’m sure many of you would say Cola or sparkling water, but the best thing one should make is lemonade. It will keep you cool and refreshed all day long and gives you a slight dash of energy. Instruction – Keep making them until the end of scorch trials.

 

5) Sun means summer, and summer means water, and water means fight together we say WATER FIGHT !!

6) Do you ever just feel lazy after a tired hot day at the beach or in your own private or neihbours lawn eating barbecued chicken but you just don’t have the mood to go to the ice cream shop? Then why not make one at home beforehand. Popsicles are fun and easy to make, plus it will be in your reach. Just open the freezer and smack on those icy dudes!

7) One word. Fire works. Nothing like it.

8) Sometimes, when family go out for dinner with other family members, WE the poor teens are left at home baby sitting our little brothers or sisters, so to make the night fun for you as well why don’t you call your most trust worthy and awesome friends and make your night a GAME NIGHT! Any game is fine as long as no one gets hurt, be it from the inside or out.

9) Movies. Yes, watch movies, and actually, this one you can do it alone sometimes. You do know that you can complete a whole of lot series in three whole months right? So get your tub of ice cream, jump on your bed, sign in on Netflix and you go girl! Don’t care about dark circles cause summer is all about fun and no makeup.

10) Or if you are not the movie type, go complete a book you never read or completed. I think that is the best way anyone can spend their time. Books can take you to another dimension, it can teach you a lot of things, and it can make you feel a lot more than you thought you would. So in a way, it’s pretty interesting how one can learn and experiance so much by just reading.

Last but not the least, it’s not a point but an obvious fact. STAY COOL. LITERALLY.

There are a lot more you could than just these 10, like, go hiking, or visit the farmers market, or go to the amusement park, or plant a garden or write an awesome book.

Summer is all about you. Yourself. Enjoyment, excitement and like I have said before, Adventure.

So put on your shorts, wear your cutest top, don’t forget the sunglasses, slip on your sandals and get out of your house before the sun says its goodbyes.

Your writer next door,

Aaliyah.
