A Meme and New Years Resolutions

So, my friend Nevillegirl did this at her blog. It was originally taken from The Magic Violinist blog, and she originally took it from her Mom’s blog, and…well, I’m going to do it now.

I love it when…people hug me. It gives me a warm, safe feeling.

I can’t sleep when… I’ve watched a movie like The Woman In Black.

I have a phobia of… Corresponding to the answer above, monsters of the night.

I wish I had… um, I don’t really know…a published, paid for, piece of writing I suppose.

I always smile when…  I watch The Nanny.

I need… New Pajamas. Yes. My Hello Kitty ones are getting worn.

I want… Dragonspeak. And a cool singing voice.

I think most people think I am… That quiet and polite girl.

I think strawberries are…   Delicious. Now that I’m not allergic to them any more.

I think I am… A bit of nerd, and childish. A good person, but not perfect.

My best friend thinks I am…  I don’t have a best friend. I do have a group of good friends though?  My friends I know in person probably think I’m quiet, sweet, and a bit awkward. Online– steampunk nerd(okay, everyone probably knows about my love of steampunk), nerd in general, good kind of crazy.

My family thinks I am… ME. I mean, they just know me. And I’m a combination of everything listed above, with added stuff.

I used to wear…  Lots of dresses. I still would, but being a teenager and wearing lots of dresses generally doesn’t work out well for you.

I wish I knew how to cook… dolmas. They’re so good, and I could eat them every day then! Excuse me while I try not to go to crazy at the prospect.

I wish I didn’t…  Develop habits that I have trouble breaking. Oh, and snap at people.

I’m glad I…  Have my family. Am a writer.

The last movie I saw in the theater was…  Les Miserable.

It was… Amazing, to say the least. Now I shall go bawl.

The last movie I saw on TV was.. I only have a TV that you can insert DVDs, etc in. So, the last movie I saw on it…erh…part of Pride and Prejudice? Also, on Netflix, I recently saw Hugo.

It was… Hilarious as usual. They really play Pride and Prejudice for laughs. Hugo was so steampunk that it made my heart do a little flip.

If I had a month off from everything I would… I’m not sure, really. Write more, I guess.

Today I…  Had my eyes examined. Same as last time…(this would be a good time to mention, that I wear contacts. Thats your random fact of the day, kids!)

Yesterday I…  Went to my leadership group’s meeting.

I like… lots of people, lots of things. Love really. Speaking of love, I like love. Or love love. That’s starting to sound confusing.

Well, now for  my New Years Resolutions. Now,  I’m not big on them really. I mean, I don’t usually keep them…at all. So why make them? But, I’m going to make a list anyway…these are more ‘things I hope to accomplish/and ways I hope to better myself’ then ‘New Years Resolutions’.

1. Work on not snapping at people. Yes, I know that I need to work on this.

2. Participate in FAWM. February Album Writing Month. I am writing a musical, so this should be a good resource, whether I use it for that or not.

3. Get a good solid plan(at least) for my dystopian novel. I’m obsessing a bit about it, but I’ll regret it if I stop obsessing. Or maybe that’s just me obsessing.

4. Stop wishing that fictional roleplay character was real so I could date him. This is one I’ll fail at.

5. Meet a published author. I wish it could be Eoin Colfer. Maybe. Maybe he’ll go on tour near me.

6. Get a short story, poem, etc published. Oh, I hope so.

So, there you are! Happy 2013 ya all! I love you all. ❤

Also, I hope to get the review(as it won the poll) of The Infernal Devices: The Clockwork Angel published soon.

“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”

Blog of the Year Award

I’ve gotten a blog award from Orphu44. My very first blog award! I shall proceed to run around the room excitedly.

Alright, I’m back. And still excited. Thank you so much Oprhu44!

Now, first of all, the rules.

Rules

1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.

Here’s the original — The Thought Palette.

Now! Five things about the amazing Avon. Let’s see….

1. Eoin Colfer once said I was intensely cool. Or, rather…

Horse Sense. That’s me. Probably one of the best compliments I’ve ever received. Seriously. I could hardly breath when I read that.

2. I get so confused when it comes to my left and right hands. Or feet.

3. I’m writing a musical based on a roleplay I’m in. Something tells me I’m too into this role-play…

4.  I’ve only opened one present so far, and I have three left. Applaud my self-control.

5. I’m thinking of auditions now, and feeling a bit sick. I hate auditions.

Interview With Holly Short-The End of The World

Hi, I’m Miss. Isanut from The Daily Prophet! People are saying it’s the end of the world, and we’re here to talk to Miss. Holly Short, Artemis Fowl the Second, and Foaly…Foaly who?

Foaly: Just Foaly. Foaly appears very nervous, and is wearing a hat that seems to be made of tinfoil. I nod to him.

Holly: Captain.

Miss. Isanut: What?

H: She acts frustrated. Captain! Captain Holly Short. Not Miss. I don’t mind Miss too much, but call me Captain.

M.I: Ah, well. Captain Short, what do you think of the world ending?

H.S: Interviewee is laughing hysterically.  I watch her awkwardly.

Foaly: He is whimpering.

H.S: Has recovered somewhat. Trolls. Literally. The world is really not ending. Crazies.

Foaly: May I remind you that I believe this?

H.S: Like I said, crazies.

Artemis: First time he has spoken. It is untrue–there is not one ounce of truth in it. Believe me. Smiles in a way that is reminisce of an actually scary Edward Cullen.

M.I: Sure, we believe you! I smile brightly.  Now, Foaly, I saw someone earlier who I think could be related to you–in disguise perhaps? Is this a family tradition?

Foaly: Appears to be happy. No, but she shows great taste!

H.S: Foaly…snatches his own hat, greatly resembling the womans, off his head.

Foaly: Starts to shriek. Holly!

Artemis: mutters under his breath–can just make out…Foaly…thought…friend logic…Holly…not…five…

H.S: Shut up Artemis! Apparently she can understand his muttering.

Foaly: tries to reach for his hat I need to check on Australia…he takes out his phone.

Mulch: The dwarf suddenly appears, putting the phone in his mouth. Eats it.

All Three: Mulch!

M.N: And this interview is over! Hope everyone has a good day, and enjoys the apocalypse..

~Miss. Cleo. Isanut
