Stevia went out one day and met a Vampire.  The Vampire said that she could have three wishes if she would become a vampire!

NaNoWriMo, and Kylie's fish.

So let's face it, I'm not great about blogging.  I'll get into it, and be great about it for a while then, oops! It's been two months since I last blogged!

This month I'm doing NaNoWriMo (national novel writer's month).  I'm finishing The Powers: Kylie's Test for it.  I just decided that Kylie ends up in their new house, and get three fish tanks! Two two gallon tanks, each has a male Betta in it, and one fifty gallon tank community tank! She has four female Bettas, four male, and two female Guppies, several Neon tetra, and a Suckerfish in the community tank. 

Her Bettas are:
King, a black, and blue bodied male Crowntail Betta, with blue, and red fins. 
Blaze, a bright red male Halfmoon Betta.
Queenie, a female Betta with more or less the same coloring as King.
Moonshadow (Shadow for short), a black female Betta.
Solar Flare (Flare for short), a red female Betta with orange fins.
Lavender (Lavy for short), a female Betta that is multiple shades of purple.

Her Guppies are:
Shade, a black male Guppy.
River, a male fancy Guppy, with a black body, a blue head, and blue fins with darker blue spots on them, and black on the tips.
Pine, another male fancy Guppy, has the same pattern as River, but he's green, and black instead of blue, and black.
Apollo, is an orange male Guppy with red fins.
Princess, is a female (obviously?) Guppy that is all pink, except for the tips of her fins, which are purple.
Zara, is a female fancy Guppy with the same pattern as Pine, and River, except she's red, not blue, or green.

Her suckerfish:
Muddy, is a brown suckerfish, with dark spots.  Gender unknown.

And the neon tetras are unnamed due to lack of difference between them.

So that's what Kylie is up to! Naming, and tending to her fish!

This RanDom World...

My friends and I created a YouTube account to put up videos we make for fun.  It's called ThisRanDomWorld1.  I recently put up a video about Sharks that I made for a presentation, called "Nobody understands sharks".  If you decide to watch my videos remember one thing: They're not supposed to be GOOD videos, they're supposed to be funny, and/or entertaining.  They were made for fun, so that's what I want them to be.

I am also going to start a webcomic about sharks! Keep checking back for when I start putting it up! :)

Maneaters:
These are the main Characters for my Webcomic "Maneaters".

This is Ebony, she's a blacktip reef shark.  She's new to Hawaii, where humans are illegal to hunt.  If you're a shark, and you hunt a human, whether you kill that human or not, you are banished, not allowed to return. 

Belia is an Albino Great White shark, the most popular shark in school! Belia is dating another Great White named Jason.  Orphaned, her parents were banished after accidentally attacking humans.

Horns is a Bully, Bull shark.  Constantly teases Ebony, for being the new shark, and Little blue, for his name, and fins.

Little Blue is a Thresher shark.  Blue has abnormally large fins, even for a Thresher.  Constantly being teased by Horns, Ebony becomes his best friend.

Nala is a tiger shark.  Nala is nice to everybody, but she has a short temper.  If you make Nala mad be careful, she's attacked a few sharks before.  Little Blue's tail used to be even longer! He learned not to make Nala mad the hard way...

Sally is a hammerhead.  Sally is the smartest shark in the entire school.  Mr. Lemon's favorite student.  Little Blue, and Ebony are her friends.  Her only friends.

Mr. Lemon is the Shark School teacher.  He's mean, short-tempered, not afraid to bite, and only likes one of his students - Sally.  The only other sharks who even try to get his affection are Ebony, and Little Blue.  The others don't care whether he likes them or not, but they try not to make him mad.  Well, too mad.

I don't have a picture of Jason yet, but here's his description:
Jason is a great white shark that plays lots of sports.  Jason isn't Mr. Lemon's favorite student, in fact, he's Mr. Lemon's least favorite student, next to the cheerleader, Kimberly.  Jason is the most popular boy shark in the school, which is why he's dating Belia.  Which makes them the most popular couple in school.

And of course, Kimberly:
Kimberly is a Megamouth shark, which is appropriate, because the only thing she really knows is Cheerleading.  Kimberly's Mom disappeared, nobody knows where, not even her Dad.  Kimberly has six younger siblings! And people say Megamouths are rare.  Kimberly's two younger sisters are also cheerleaders.


There are more characters but those are the main characters.  Such as all of the shark families! Except for Belia's family of course.  Kimberly's family will probably be the most fun to create.  But out of the main characters I think Jason, Nala, Blue, and Ebony will be the most fun to draw, and create their personality. 

So that's my Webcomic! :)

School

This school year I am going to be studying sharks!

Well, I'm doing other things as well, but I'm going to try and make all of my subjects revolve around sharks :)

Such as:
Stories, and papers for english about sharks.
Shark Biology.
I'm gonna try and figure out how I can make my math problems into sharks problems.

At the beginning of the school year I'm going to do a presentation on sharks, what I know, and what I want to know.  My goal with this presentation is to show people that sharks shouldn't be feared.  They should be respected.  There is a difference.

I will have a list of goals for the school year including:
Learn about fresh and salt water aquarium sharks. (Like small sharks that people have in normal fish tanks!)
Visit an aquarium that has sharks in it.   (Big sharks :)
Go on a whale watch. (there is a chance of seeing a shark, plus I'd love to be more comfortable on boats..)
And more!

Bettas!!

I got a Female Betta fish on the 13th!! Her name is Queen Thayet Bubbles the First.  She is a "chocolate" female betta.  ("Chocolate" refers to her color.  King is a Cambodian male Crown-tail betta.) 

This is a picture of Thayet the day I got her! As a few of you may know I got King as a birthday present.  Thayet was also a birthday present! Only I got King in 2010, and Thayet in 2011.

Well that's my fishy!

New York City! Part 1 ;)

Over a week ago I returned home from New York.

I was there for a national dance competition! I got all gold awards, except for one dance.  Tango got silver, which is weird because the judges seem to like that one best!

We arrived in New York two weeks ago, from today.  We rode a bus all the way there! It was a long bus ride, but my three best friends were on the buses, so I was fine.  (On the first bus Bee, and I found infomation on our favorite artist, but that's another story :)

I'm going to type this as a "diary"...

Day 1:
We arrived in New York, the streets are so crowded! People, street venders, cabs! Everywhere! Tonight we went to "The Jekyll & Hyde club" for dinner.  A horror themed resturant.  My kind of place :)  It was fun, plus we had to sing-a-long with a Vampire! :P I rode in a Taxi for the first time in my life! It was quite interesting :)

Day 2:
Ugh, I got up early, now I'm going to bed late.  The going to bed late thing is normal, but I can't handle being up at 7AM! Too bad.  This morning we had classes at a dance studio in New York.  From 10AM, until around 3PM, I think... I don't know, they were long.  I didn't really like those classes very much.  Afterwards we went to Times Square, to the giant Toys R Us, which is funny, because the competition team had mostly teens in New York.  There's a ferris wheel inside the Toys R Us, a 70 ft. tall one I was told.  After Toys R Us a small group went to M&M World, and the Hershey Factory.  I don't like M&M's but even I had to admit that the Hershey factory was nothing compared to M&M world!

Day 3:
AHHH!!! This morning we got up, got breakfast, and went to A FERRY (We took a subway there, and I love trains!).  A.K.A. BOAT! I hate boats! And the ride to Staten Island was awful! I wanted to stay with the team, so I sat down outside, with everybody hanging over the edge, then most people went inside, but I couldn't move to follow! I litterally COULD NOT MOVE! We got to Staten island, and got on the next ferry (I was inside on that one, so it wasn't as bad), and went back to the city.  We walked to Ground Zero, it was pretty cool.  Then we had more dance classes.  My Mom, Sister, Ris, her Grandma, and I took the subway to the dance studio, we were the second ones there! Some other people had decided not to go with us because they were afraid of being late.  Later we went to see the broadway show "Anything Goes".  It was amazing, AND we got autographs from some of the cast members.  :) 


Days 4, 5, and 6 will come later! In my 100th POST!
:)

two more!

After this post I need two more before I have 100 total posts on this blog!
So, a line explained.  A line from "Kylie's Test".

THE LINE:
The good reason to trust me? You just passed the first test! 'Instinctive, trusting, strength/courage, independent, curious'. Those are the first things on the list!”

THE EXPLAINATION:
Kylie doesn't know whether or not to trust Isha when he says that there are some tests she has to take.  She asks him why she should trust him, and not her instincts, that was the answer he gave.  Each personality trait stands for an element:
Instinctive - Air (because the wind(or air) goes wherever, but not on a set course)

Trusting - Water (Because water moves along the path that was made for it (like a river), and very rarely leaves it's path)

Strength/Courage - Earth (Earth is strong, and with some strength comes courage)

Independent - Fire (Fire goes wherever it feels, and is very difficult to stop)

Curious - Spirit (Because with curiousity comes learning, and discovering, which leads to spirit (at least in this story)). 

"So far," Isha tells Kylie, "you are all of the above." 
Kylie is trusting her instincts telling Isha she doesn't want to go with him. 
She was showing her curiousity by asking about what he said. 
She's trusting because she agreed to talk to her foster mother about her buying a house for just the six kids.  She's independent because she likes things her way, but she's a good leader also. 
She's "strong" (Stubborn) when somebody says something highly against a plan of hers, and she brave enough to stand up for herself. 
But she also knows when not to stand up for herself, at least mostly.  She tries to know when enough is enough, though she fails quite often, and gets into trouble, especially when she accidentally says something, even something she would never even dream of saying!
"And, I hadn't wanted to talk back, but getting into trouble was, well, getting into trouble was what I did best."

So, any questions? :)

The Powers playlist.

I made this playlist for The Powers books.  You have to know my entire series plan to understand how all of these songs fit with the books, a lot of the songs are by The Cab, All Time Low, Owl City, and Boys Like Girls, and there are a few by other artists.  So, here's the play list:

1. The Beach - All Time Low
2. Take my Hand - The Cab^
3. I'll Run - The Cab^
4. Heart Heart Heartbreak - Boys Like Girls
5. The Bird and The Worm - Owl City^
6. Hooray for Beer - Bowling For Soup
7. Dear Maria, Count Me In - All Time Low
8. Six Feet Under the Stars - All Time Low
9. Sugar, We're Goin Down - Fall Out Boy
10. Cave In - Owl City^
11. This Side - Nickel Creek^
12. As Long as You're Mine - Wicked
13. This City's Contagious - The Cab^
14. Thunder - Boys Like Girls^

Not all of those are completely child-appropriate, I mean, one of them is called "Hooray for Beer".  So just be aware of that fact if you decided to listen to them.*

*I put a ^ next to the ones I know FOR SURE to be okay.

My 2011 Garden :)

This year my garden idea was new.  And who says Video games are bad for you?  Or not educational?!  It's a Plants VS. Zombies themed garden.  If you're not familiar with the game I'll explain. 
     In the game there are zombies trying to eat your brains, and you have to plant things to defend yourself.  Certain plants do certain things, such as:
    Sunflowers give you sun so you can buy other plants. 
    Peashooters shoot peas at the zombies to destroy them. 
    You can plant pumpkins on your other plants to add some defence. 
    Potato Mines blow up when a zombie steps on them. 
    And Kernel Pults are catapults that throw corn kernels, and butter.  The butter freezes the zombies, so they can't move, and the kernels hit them to do damage.
    
The reason I described these plants and not any of the many, many other plants in the game, is because the equivalent of these plants is what I am growing in my garden.
    Sunflowers
    Peas
    Pumpkins
    Potatoes (These are in buckets next to my garden, so I'm not really growing them.)
    And Corn.

At the of the game after you defeat "Dr. Zomboss" the zombie say something like "Fine you win, now we just want to make a music video with you!" You can find the music video on YouTube if you search "Plants Vs. Zombies song".

If you do play the game, what would you have if you were growing a PVZ garden?

Lots

Lots has happened.

Cinderella, came and went.  It went well! Though the ceiling in the theater came down the night before the last two shows!

I got my braces off two days ago! Feels really, weird.  I don't really like my retainer, but I don't have much choice...

Another competition happened! The scores were:
Lyric Solo (TS) - Gold
Lyric Duo (GD) - Gold
Lyric Trio (W) - High Silver
Tap Duo (Orange.  The new one! This was the first time doing it) - Gold, and 5th place overall duos of our category, and agelevel that day!
Tap Duo (Stray Cat) - Gold
Lyric Group (KHO) - Gold
Ballet Group (Celtic) - High Silver
Tap group (Tango) - Gold!
TS was probably the best, or it was my favorite preformance by me.

The Powers *Interview with Kylie Black*

Q.  How did you feel when you discovered your powers?
A. Me?  I went into instant shock.  Isha told me by saying I was't human! Then told me how I wasn't human later.

Q. When did you meet Isha?
A. Well first in a dream, or a memory apparently.  Then in a mall, and later that day at my house!

Q. Why did you let Isha talk you into asking Myra to buy a house for you and your siblings?!
A. I wanted answers, no.  I needed answers! And my sisters and I had been trying to get away from Myra for a long time, Isha just gave me the key to getting us out of that house!

Q. What is your favorite part about having powers?
A. I don't know.  Probably the feeling of control, like I can control things, and I can control what happens to me.  I hate when I'm not in control of my life. 

Q. What's a song that means the most to you, about your powers and stuff.
A. There are a few songs that mean a lot to me with my powers. 
I'll Run, by The Cab always makes me think of the time that I tried to run away from everything, and Isha came with me. 
Cave In, by Owl City reminds me of when I first got my powers, or found out about them. 
I Gotchoo, by Bowling For Soup (bfs) makes me remember the time when we were in a town, and couldn't buy anything - not even food - but we had each othe, so we didn't care!
On Top of The World, by Boys Like Girls (blg) makes me think of when Isha brought us into the clouds to keep us all safe!
This City is Contagious, by The Cab makes me think of when I thought up the hidden-worlder city! Which we hide so no humans can see it, only hidden-worlders can! And, unfortunately, demons, vampires, zombies, ghosts, etc.

Q. What is the most important thing who hope to use your powers for?
A. Easy, I want to destroy the darkest lord.  Even though he will never be gone forever.  The world needs a balance of good and evil to work properly, the hidden-worlders have to keep the good part.  The darkest lord doesn't get this, he wants the world to be run his way.  If everybody in the world could help us hidden-worlders somehow we'd fix things to the way they were before the world needed hidden-worlders! But the humans cannot break the control of the demons completely, or, if they do, they can't break it completely for very long.

Thank you Kylie :P

Music!

So remember how my music teacher and I were going to record my sooooong?  I got a copy of the actual recording today! I've already started multipul songs that I'm currently working on! One I'm writing as a joke... Tomorrow I am playing in a talent show! I am playing Window Warrior, and Vegas Skies :) 

Speaking of writing songs! I am writing a story for a contest about a musician, whose writing a song for her dancer friend! :)

Why I have not blogged.

My music teacher and I recorded my first song! It's not done being edited yet, but I'm going to make a music video for it when it's done :)  I'm already writing four more songs, too! I haven't put my guitar back into it's case since Friday afternoon!! And my band was going to be called "The Secret Sisters" but there's already a band with that name..... *sigh*

Sorry I haven't posted a lot, I've been............. busy. >_>  It's only been a little over a week since I last posted though.

I have been practicing my guitar a lot, and of course, I've been busy with dance.  I've got a talent show on the 1st, and a science fair on the 3rd, so I'm busy preparing for those.  I'm also helping out with a preschool french class now. 

That's a few rreasons I have not blogged recently.

Books:

SHADOWMANCER(G.P.Taylor):
Interesting.  But, not a quick read.  Takes a long time.

Thomas, the orphaned boy, meets Raphah, a boy who has come from a far away land(haha!). 
The "Dumurrel" stole something from Raphah's people, Raphah has to steal it back.  Thomas, and his friend Kate, decide to help Raphah, but - of course - regret it later.  I personally hate Raphah.  He was O.K., in the beginning, but he said something I didn't like.  He's mean to dogs.  -.-  So, read this book! UNLESS, you like dogs.  Then, you still could read it, just hope for Raphah to die :D

JUST ELLA(Margaret Peterson Haddix):
Great book! I finished this one in a few hours. 

The author's version of "Cinderella", only this one doesn't have any kind of Fairy Godmothers, or magic.  It's a story about a commoner girl who ends up with the prince! Then she finds out she doesn't really love the prince.  It's a great story, and a quick read.  Personally, I find quick reads more interesting.  In books that take a long time to read the story is drawn out, and it kind of annoys me! You should DEFFINATELY read this! Great author, Margaret Peterson Haddix.  You should read all of her books.  Yup, all of them.  Every single one.  Well?  Are you looking for her books?  NO?!?! You'd better start. o.0


RAVEN SUMMER(David Almond):
Another fantastic book, from a favorite author of mine: David Almond.  :)

Liam, and his friend Max are digging in Liam's yard.  They see a raven, and end up following it.  The raven leads them to a baby! They bring the baby to Liam's house, and the baby ends up in a foster home.  Then, the baby goes back to Liam's house and lives with them.  Another pretty quick read.  What I really like about quick reads is that I can read them, and just keep reading them until they're done, and I don't have to stop! In longer reads it's more difficult to keep concentrated.  GREAT BOOK, GREAT AUTHOR, GREAT READ! So far....... >_> Quote(:D):
"I want to be crazy as the moon, wild as the wind, and still as the earth.  I'm growing, but I don't know how to grow.  I'm alive, but I haven't started living yet.  Sometimes I simply disappear from myself.  Sometimes it's like I'm not here in the world at all, and I simply don't exist."

A Day in the Life of a Zarin (Chapter 5!)

I stared at Sierra in horror.  "What?!" I whispered.  "They want Tessen.  This is why I didn't bring Rayleigh.  I knew they," she nodded towards the Kreatures, "were out here.  And I didn't want to endanger her!" "Why didn't you tell me?! That way I could have protected Tess!" I was fuming.  I couldn't believe that Sierra would protect her younger sibling, but didn't give any thought to mine! Even when I told her I was bringing Tessen! I glared at her.  "Kreature's, please! Listen to me!" I decided something that I would regret the rest of my life.  "You do not want this child!" I gestured to Tessen.  Then looked at them.  They had stopped, and were waiting for me to finish.  "Kaylinn, what are you doing?"  Sierra asked, in a frightened whisper.  "I'm doing what you almost did to Tessen!" Her eyes widened when she realized what I meant.  "Kayl, please, no!" She was terrified.  I was glad.  "Don't call me Kayl!" Then the Kreatures spoke.  In a high-pitched, wheezy whisper that sounded like something being drag along wood.  "What do you intend to give us instead of your brother?"  The first Kreature said.  Then the second spoke in a low, hoarse whisper.  "Would you give up your friend, for him?"  I looked at him in surprise.  Then I looked at Sierra, who was huddling towards the ground.  I opened my Mouth to speak, but Sierra beat me.  "Take Kaylinn!" She said.  I gaped at her.  "No, take Sierra.  She has no family!" Sierra's eyes went wide, as my words sunk in.  It was true.  If a Zarin ran away he, or she, would be disowned by their family.  Sierra would have to wait until she was an adult, 15, to go back to her family.  Then she will be welcomed back with open arms.

Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

Hey everybody!! Competition was great!

Drove down Friday, and went out to dinner with a few people from the team. 

Saturday we got up at 6:30 (uuughhhh!), went to breakfast at 7:00 (uuuugghh!!), went back to our hotel room to get ready, and was ready, and down-stairs, by 8:30.  Stretched, and warmed-up.  Competition started at 10:00, and went on until around 6:00ish... With 3 awards ceremonies! We then went back to the room, took showers, ate something, and went to the pool.  We then went back to the room, took more showers! And later went to bed.

Sunday (today!!).  We got up at 6:30 (noooooo!), again went to Dunkin' Donuts at somewhere around 7:00 (O.O), and went to the room and got ready.  This time we were down-stairs before 8:15.  Stretched a bit, then workshops started at 8:30.  First class for intermediates (my level) was Ballet.  After an hour of ballet I was getting excited for more classes! (Ballet is one of my favorite styles of dance.) Tap next.  Then Hip-Hop, then..... LUNCH! And boy were we excited to eat! After lunch we had Jazz, then Tap, again.  Then they had another award ceremony. 

My scores:
Lyric Solo: Silver (First Solo, first Competition doing it!)

Group tap: Gold, Special award (Most of the people in the group dislike quite a few parts.  There's only one part that makes me go, uhhhh! >_<)

"Line-Ballet": Gold (I like this one :)

Tap Duo: Gold (This one is student choreography! And is done with Bee/Tangleface/Bella :P)

Lyric Group: Gold (Not the best we've done on this dance, in class that is.)

Lyric Duo: Silver (First competition with this dance!)

And after workshops they give out scholarships, for free workshops (In Las Vegas), and for DEA's Ballet seminar in LV.  I got a half scholar-ship to the ballet seminar because I did really good in the classes!! It was my third time doing workshops.  I had soo much fun! I mean I didn't have any fun, because my Mom told me not to. >_>

THANK YOU JUDGES/TEACHER AT DEA FOR SUCH A GREAT WEEKEND!

A Day in the Life of a Zarin (Chapter 4, it's finally here!!)

The higher the sun rose, the greener the trees looked - and the more upset Tessen got. Why hadn't Sierra brought Rayleigh? Rayleigh was a baby without an older sister now. Tessen still had his older sister, but Rayleigh was now completely sisterless! I looked at Sierra, and thought about asking her.  "I know," She said, "You're wondering why I didn't bring Rayleigh, I can see it in your eyes."  That surprised me.  "Um... Yeah, I was..."  I blushed slightly.  "I didn't bring her she was as much a part of me, as she was a part of the rest of the family.  She was named Rayleigh, after our grandmother Kayleigh.  I didn't want to take that away," She said.  I thought about this.  A year before our Zarin ceremony Kayleigh had died.  Then, just two days after Rayleigh was born.  They named her after Kayleigh.  Kind of.  Their Grandfather had died before Sierra, or her brothers were born.  I never found out his name.  It started with an R that's all I knew.  Because they named Rayleigh after both of them.  I was so caught up in my thoughts I almost didn't notice when Sierra yelled.  "Kaylinn!" She shouted.  I looked around frantically, and was why she was panicked.  Two black shapes were coming towards us.  "No..." Sierra whispered.  I was terrified, and had no clue what these things were! But apparently Sierra knew.  "What are they Sier?" I asked quietly.  "Kreatures of Evil! I think they want...." She trailed off.  "What, Sier?! What do they want?!  Can we give them something to get them away?!" I nearly shouted.  "Shh!" Sierra reminded me.  She looked at the two kreatures closing in.  "They want Tessen."

Sorry for the short chapter today! I've got music class, then I'm going out of town for a few days! First dance Competition is tomorrow! Driving there today.  And Workshops on Sunday! Busy. o.o  So I'll post about that Sunday ;)

So, What is this a picture of?  Good luck :P

Sunday, February 27, 2011

I have a lot to say today :)

Seeing as I didn't even put up a WHAT IS THIS A PICTURE OF this week nobody won... I'm sorry, but tomorrow we will have a new one up! I have a good one :)

I finished a REALLY good book today! KILLER PIZZA, by Greg Taylor.  It has a good review by R. L. Stine, too :D

Great/Weird song: Shut up and Smile, by *drumroll* BOWLING FOR SOUP! Yeah.... Nobody under the age of 12 should listen to them.  I've only heard one of their songs without a swear.  I love this band XD

"Throw your arms around someone, maybe sprend a little love! I know it sounds a little dumb, and maybe I'm a little drunk.  But all we need is some ice cream, and a huuuug!
Take a look around, does life really suck?  Are we just complaining?  I hope that this mic is on... 'Cuz I'm on a roll here, I hope this is making some sense, I hope that you'll throw her hands up and sing.  And tell all the haters to, Shut up and Smile, yea!"  ~ Part of the song "Shut up and Smile" by Bowling for Soup.  Funniest/Best part! :O

Started reading another library book! Clockwork Angel, by *another drumroll* Cassandra Clare! Love her books, AND she wrote a ZOMBIE story in Unicorns vs. Zombies! :3

I have a goooood reason for not posting since Wednesday: I slept-over at Bee's(Bella Nell's :P) house Thursday, into Friday, and didn't get home until late.  My niece slept-over Friday into Saturday.  Then I was at Meep's house Yesterday to Today! Lots of sleep-overs, but I'll be blogging a lot again now! :P

I need to find something to knit! Please, when you finish reading this (:P) go read my list of knitting ideas on Knit an Adventure!

Wednesday update random.

This is a "random update", so I'm going to post a bunch of stuff, just to post about something! :P

Today I'm going to be drawing more "The Powers" pictures.  A few of the protectors probably.  I'm also going to draw the kid's party outfits, from the girl's birthday.  Bella's is pretty.......... interesting?  Oh well.

I'm hoping to finish "The Zombie Chronicles" audiobook/podcast today!

I'm going to be writing a lot of Kylie's Test today.  The characters have three names now! At least most of them.  The hidden-worlder's name their children in a special way: First, middle, and last names! Which is why the triplets each have their own last name. 

I'm sorry! I forgot to put up my "What is this a picture of" this week! My camera wasn't working though, soo... I'll use it for next Monday!

I organized my Author book recently! It has pretty colored tabs sticking out of it now. :)

I'm going to work on a project about Northern Snakeheads today, the project is for a fair.  I'll post about it when it's done! :D

The Triplets

Since Tuesday is a book update day I'm going to tell you about the triplets!
Kylie Avlynn Black (Graceful Bird's Shadow)
Maria Ivory Luna (Bitter Cream-colored Moon)
Bella Ebony Nell (Beautiful Black Light)
Their parents, Miliana, and Bennett, named them for the name, not the meaning.  Unlike their protector's parents... Anyway.  I am re-writing the book by the way.  I was reading some "writing tips" and one of the tips was "Write, then re-write!" And I was having a hard time with The Powers.  It wasn't writing, right.  :P
So the stuff about the triplets is the new stuff.  They've changed a bit, and WOW, you should see how much the protectors changed! Except Zo.... He's pretty much the same...

Kylie's favorite colors are Black and Red.  And getting into trouble is basically what she does best! Well, other than killing demons. ;)  She dyes her hair partially red on her 14th birthday, even though their foster mother didn't want her to.  She walked away from her sisters, and out of a store (in a mall), to talk to Isha, even though she had never met him, she had simply had a dream about him.  Then he goes to her house later that night, though nobody invited him.  Together Isha, and Kylie are more trouble then any of their family members thought was possible.  Though Isha is sometimes annoyingly cautious, and protective. 

Maria's favorite colors are Orange, and Blue.  Maria just likes having fun.  And is always teasing Kylie.  Maria hate their foster mother, Myra, as much as Kylie does! And as much as Myra hates her.  Though Myra hates them she homeschools them, and buys them whatever they want, as long as it keep them away from her she's happy! When Maria first meets Zosimo, it's a recipe for DISASTER! But after a while they begin to act like friends.  More like twins, actually... Maria never thought Kylie could be anymore trouble than she is alone, but then Isha came along, and he's as bad as she is! Zosimo is annoying, and sometimes swears(No swear words are actually in the book!), and does bad stuff like that, but he can be nice, and as overly-protective as Isha is.

Bella's favorite colors are Pink, and Purple.  Bella is quiet, or so you think, until you get to know her! Bella can be the life of the party, or the shy little girl in the corner, talking to no one.  Just depends on her mood really. ;)  Bella hates Myra, because Myra hates Bella's siblings, but Myra loves Bella, because Bella loves her bedroom, which is pink, and purple.  Bella, and Elaine get along very well! Elaine is a little girl who loves reading, writing, drawing, painting, dancing, and singing, and Bella is a girl who likes all of that except singing.  Meaning she likes reading, writing, drawing, painting, and dancing.  Bella is more protective of Elaine is, then Elaine of Bella, even though Elaine is the protector!

So, there's some information about the triplet for ya! Well, I'm afraid the hidden-worlders need my help!! Especially the triplets!

Holy cow!

It's been sooo long since I posted!! Yes! I know! 4 whole days!!!

I am re-writing The Powers book! From the beginning, the girls are now at the mall during their 14th birthday, where Kylie meets Isha for the first time, and Bella, and Maria have some sisterly (annoying) assumptions about Kylie, and Isha when they start talking for a long time as if they already knew each other.  (Kylie had a dream with Isha in it before the mall trip.)  They are also living in a foster home, which they hate.  And their foster Mother hates all of them, except Bella.  Kylie also dyes her "bangs" (as in the picture I posted a while ago) Bright red, even though their foster mother doesn't approve of hair dye. 

The winners of the most recent "WHAT IS THIS A PICTURE OF?!":
1. Meep, for being the first to guess.  (I'm doing the winners in order of having guessed, because everybody got it right :P)
2. My Mom.
3. My Dad.
Thank you, everyone for playing! And thank you for reading :)

Random Update

First random update, since the first random update! I'm currently doing school work, kind of...... Actually I'm blogging with my school work on my lap, and my pencils in my mouth.  OK I spit the pencils out.  I should be doing math, and working on my project about Snakeheads.  Snakeheads are a type of fish by the way.  Big (some), Mean (most??), and quite common in some places! Giant Snakeheads have been known to attack humans, out of fear for their children, so I've heard.  People have been led to believe that snakeheads can walk on land, and live for 3 days! Yes, Snakehead have lungs, so do many other fish! They have lungs, and gills.  That way, they can live in low oxigen situations, such as very murky, dirty water.  Or shallow water with little oxigen.  Betta fish can do this also.  CHALLENGE:
Find at least one other way Betta Fish and Snakeheads are alike.  I'll probably know it, so I'll know if you're making it up.  :D

WHAT IS THIS A PICTURE OF?!?!?!

It's not hard to figure out.  By the way, Happy Valentine's Day!!! <3

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Oh Wow....

Well, this is my first time posting on a Sunday since I chose themes!
1. Winners of the "What is This a Picture of?!" are as follows:
  ~My Mom, for being the first to guess.  (Answer to your question: I take pictures of my breakfast when I completely forget that I'm supposed to post a picture of something on my blog for people to guess what it is.)
  ~My Dad, for being the second to guess.
  ~Brooke, for being the third to guess. 

Though you didn't all actually SAY the answer...

2. Just thought I throw this out there:
The book "Zombies VS. Unicorns" is great!! It's for ages 14-adult, just to let you know.  Something could be more appropriate, but for that age-range I think it's fine.  Best stories:

Princess Prettypants by Meg Cabot (Unicorn)
Bougainvillea by Carrie Ryan (Zombie)
The Care and Feeding of your Baby Killer Unicorn by Diana Peterfreund (Zombie... Er, unicorn.. :)
Cold Hands by Cassandra Clare (Unic- Zombie.(I already liked Cassandra Clare's books though, so can I still count that I liked this story?)

Remember, this is MY opinion.  I enjoyed all of them though! Inoculata, by Scott Westerfeld, is good, too.  About some kids.  In a Zombie apocalypse.  Whooo, get bitten.  BUT, don't become zombies!! They become imune to the zombieness! Sorry Team Unicorn, I typically like Zombies better, but these stories give a different perspective of Unicorns!! Meaning I like these stories A LOT.  Meaning this book is going to be on my wish list.  Meaning I'm going to try very hard to get this book on my bookshelf.  Meaning I'm gonna need a new bookshelf... Soon. (Hint......? :D)  I doubt I could fot this book on my bookshelf in it's current state............. I'm going to take a picture!!!!!!!

3.  Thank you all for reading my blog! You are awesome!! At least.......... most of you, 'cause some of you are just plain weird. (Dad........... >_>)

Not my fault!!

Sorry I haven't been blogging for a few days, I got sick on Thursday.  Well, I started coughing and stuff on Wednesday.  I'm almost completely fine now, though.  Since I'm still recovering, I'm not going to dance today.  Which is fine considering I probably wouldn't be able to do anything.  Well, much.  :P  So, I'm at home, blogging.  :3  I am going to a play practice tonight though, sooo....  OK enough blogging for right now! I've gotta practice my guitar....

A Day in the Life of a Zarin (Chapter 3!)

I walked out the door with Tessen strapped to my front, and my pack on my back.  I met Sierra in the woods behind my house.  We walked through the woods, discussing our plans.  We planned to find a place where nobody would find us, and build a big house for ourselves.  Then someday, we would return to the Ghsot Town, and nobody would know who we are.  We had plans for what we would eat, and how we would get water.  We stopped for the night when Tessen started crying.  I quieted Tessen, while Sierra made us a place to sleep for the night.  Then we built a fire, while Tessen slept in the carrier.  We made some peanut butter sandwiches, and talk for a while.  Then we put out the fire, and went to sleep.  We woke when the sun came through the shelter's "door", and shown on our eyes.  I was tired, and sore from all the walking we had done, but we had to press on.  We got up, and started walking again...

(Sorry the post is so short, I wanted to post it today, but didn't start until later than I should have :)

Not on theme.....

Today I'm not going to post "A Day in the Life of a Zarin".  I'm going to tell you about the best dream I have EVER had.  And one of the worst, and I have some pretty awful dreams sometimes..... Saving the best for last:

Attack(this is not for the faint of heart that can see thing in their heads quite clearly.... ):
I was in a camp, with only a big wooden "building" in the center of camp, a man ran into camp.  "You have to hurry! They're coming! They're going to kill us all!" People start sharpening stakes, and sticking them into the ground.  "First, attack with these."  The captain pulled out one of the large stakes.  "Then, when you've made a few kills with those, attack with these little daggers."  He held up a small, silver dagger.  "Then, upgrade again to these swords."  He held up a huge sword.  "Last, use these, they require a great deal of skill, so be warned."  He pointed to a stack of wooden staffs.  The captain and some people that worked with him went inside the building, leaving the troops outside.  I watched the gate guard closely, something was about to go very, very wrong.  Then, it did.  A hand reach under the gate, in the hand was a dagger.  The dagger plunged into the gate-guard's heart, a fountain of blood pouring from him.  Then, the gate swung open, and the attack began.  I had my stake ready.  I stabbed one vampire, it died, and disappeared.  I stabbed a bunch of vampires, and then the captain screamed at me, "UPGRADE!" So I did.  I grabbed a silver dagger and started my killing spree again.  Until the captain shouted, "SWORD!" I grabbed a sword, but I couldn't lift it! It was too heavy! I was the only one still alive, even the captain had been killed, and I couldn't lift my weapon.  The vampires swarmed in, I tried to hit them, but couldn't.  A vampire jumped at me from behind, and they started feeding.  I had died......


Best Dream, I can't tell it all....:
I was at my dance school, and there was a man there.  Dressed all in white, with his hair going out everywhere.  His hair was white also.  And his skin, was the palest I had ever seen.  He was coughing, and standing in front of some mirrors.  He walked away from the mirrors, and most of the people in the room started freaking out.  My friend, Bee, and I however, did not.  There was blood splattered all over the mirror.  "Bee!" I said, "Let's go place our hands in the blood, then let them slowly slide of the mirror, and it'll look like something out of a horror movie!" We told a guy that used to go to our dance school our idea.  "You'd better hurry, the vampire is cleaning the mirror..." We looked over, and the blood was almost completely gone.  I ran up and jumped on the vampire's back, he looked at me and smiled.  Then he started running.  It was so much fun, being on a vampire's back! He was running, but not like you hear about vampires running.  He wasn't running very fast, faster than people, but not much faster.  "He's my new friend!" I said, a bunch of other people were getting piggy-back rides from other guys.  "Keet!" Everybody screamed at me.  "He can't be your friend!" The vampire kind of wilted, then he bit my hand.  "Why did you bite me?!" I asked, nearly in tears, not because it hurt, but because he was my friend! Then he turned into an amazing dragon.  I flew on the dragons back, around the room, hugging his neck so I didn't fall off.  It was amazing.  Then it landed, and I just sat on his back, hugging him.  "I'm older than I should be..." He said  "You're my best friend," I whispered.  Then my dance teacher walked up, "He looked kind of old to be a creature."  She said.  "Yeah, he said 'I'm older than I should be' a minute ago..." I shrugged.  She frowned.  "Take him, he's going to have to leave us." "NO!" I screamed.  They started taking him away, I tried to grab him, to stay with him! But I couldn't, they grabbed me.  I lied on the floor sobbing.  "Give her some pollen, we'll see if one of them stick with her."  I heard someone whisper.  Then some small, fuzzy, purple things landed in front of me.  I held my breath.  I knew that if I breathed one in it would be my creature.  They faded.  I had to find a way to my creature.  My dragon.  And, my best friend.  I had to save him, before it was too late.  I walked carefully to the stairs.  I went through the door without making a sound.  I found a dog in the stairwell! I went all the way upstairs to look for my dragon.  I found where he would be hidden, so I went back downstairs before anybody noticed the I was missing.  The person who had taken my creature away saw me come out of the stairwell.  "What were you doing on the stairs?"  She asked.  "I heard this dog, it got itself stuck, silly dog!" I said.  Everybody else went outside, I stayed in.  Then I went back upstairs.  "It's time to get you out!" I whispered to my dragon.  The person who had taken him away caught me.  "Please! Let me have my creature back!" I pleaded.  She said "No,he's too old!" But then found a paper.  The paper said that my creature was the king of dragons.  She let me have him back.  "Oh my gosh!" I said, "I'm so happy I have you back!" I nearly started crying.  I got on him, and started riding.  We somehow got outside of my dance school, and we were flying.  It was amazing! Flying on a dragon! The only way I was staying on was holding on to his neck with both my arms and legs.  I wasn't afraid of falling off though.  I knew my dragon, creature, and best friend would save me.  We flew, until we got to my house. 

I only remember fragments after that.  I also had an AWFUL tornado dream the same night as these two... I'll post my Zarin story, too, I guess.....

Tuesday post. *I've decide the theme!*

A while ago I decided that I was going to make my blog mostly book updates, that way I'd always have something to post about.  So book updates are going to be Tuesday's post, as well as Saturday's post!

Just for fun, Meep, and I started writing a story together.  So far it's called "Avril's Raven" but that's probably not going to be the name.  It's about a girl named Avril, and her brother Zoltan.  Their mother had been a wizard, but their father had not.  Avril, and Zoltan should both have the "Power spark" in them, but Zoltan doesn't, and so, Zoltan cannot be a wizard.  (By the way, Meep and I are working on it separately, and this is MY version.)  Avril sees a raven that reminds her of her mother.

A. I punched him in the face and he threw me out of the van. *cough* sketchy WHITE van.....

4. Q. Did Bella protest when he threw you?
A. Duh

5. Q. So she wasn't under his control anymore?
A. Not at that moment, I think she recognized me..

6. Q. How quickly after you were thrown out of van did Kylie and the protectors find you?
A. About a half hour.

11. Q. Last question, do you have any clue what Isha did to Kylie?
A. o.O

And very few people will ever know the answer to the last question! Until they read my book that is..... >_>
SNEAK PEAK FROM "The Powers: Kylie's Test":

I looked straight into Isha's eyes. His eyes were orange. Blood-shot, and his eyes were orange! “Elaine, what's wrong with Isha?” The bond I had with Isha pulsed with rage, and darkness. “Ella?!” Nolan, and Zosimo ran up. “Not again!” Nolan said. “What do you mean 'again'?! What's wrong with Isha?!” I shouted at the two boys. “It's time, Kylie. Today is the day you die,” Isha said, his eyes as wide as possible. “What is he talking about?!” I screeched. “He's under the Darkest Lord's control!” Zosimo screamed at me. Mae ran up then, having heard our screaming at each other. Well mostly my screaming at everybody else. She had heard the last, and most important thing any of us had said though. “He's under the Darkest Lord's control” was the only thing Mae had heard. Her eyes went wide, “Who is?” She asked. I just pointed to Isha, still to surprised to even speak. Elaine was still whispering to her brother, asking him to come back. It seemed to be slowly working, I could feel the shadow disappearing through the bond. It was working too slowly! I got down on my hands and knees to help Elaine. Ella smiled at me encouragingly. “Isha, please come back! We need you. I need you! Isha!” The darkness was almost completely gone. His eyes were kind of yellow-green, and the orange still fading. He moaned again, and rolled away from us. Then, an ear-piercing shriek came from my protector.

That's all I'm telling! XP

A Day in the Life of a Zarin. (Chapter 2)

I sat up slowly.  I was very tired.  I had stayed up quite late doing tasks.  "Kaylinn!" My Mom yelled from down stairs.  I walked groggily downstairs to see what the problem was.  "Kaylinn, someone stole five hundred Krays from us last night."  Krays are Kreature world's money. Five hundred Krays is a lot.  "Who on Kreature World would have done such a thing?!" I exclaimed.  "Do not talk to your mother like that! You awful Zarin!" My father was always awful to me, and suspected me whenever something went wrong.  Never did he guess that my younger adopted brother stole from them almost every night.  He had only ever stolen small amounts, until I became a Zarin.  "Weston, we're not accusing her, remember?"  My Mom said gently.  I knew she thought it was Verlin, too.  "Who else could it have been?"  My Dad snapped.  "What about... Verlin?"  "VERLIN IS A GOOD BOY AND NEVER WOULD'VE STOLEN THAT MANY KRAYS!" He screamed at my Mother.  My Mom nodded, fighting back the tears.  My Mom knew that I never had stolen any money.  She had caught Verlin in the act, but my Father never believed her.  Since my Father loved his two sons, much more than he loved his daughters, he always thought us girls did everything wrong, and his little boys could do no wrong.  "Verlin, and Tessen, would never steal money from us.  Rania, and Kaylinn are who I'm afraid of."  "Tessen is a baby! I would never suspect him!" "Verlin is a year younger than Kaylinn.  Why would he have stolen money?  Kaylinn is a Zarin."  My Father hissed the word Zarin, as if were the most horrible thing on Kreature World.  And in most minds, it was.  "I'm only a Zarin because Sierra messed up! It's not my fault!" I blurted out.  I knew I shouldn't have spoken.  My Father looked to me, "You think you would have been a Zerina then?  If not for your best friend?!  You completely blame the child you call your friend for your problems?!" I shook my head vigorously.  I didn't blame Sierra, not exactly.  Well, I blamed her, but I also blamed the town for not explaining it to her.  "Then why did you say it?"  I didn't say anything.  "Good! You're finally learning to hold your tongue."  He walked away.  I ran to Tessen's room, and picked up the baby.  "Tessen, I think I'm going to take you away.  I can't live here, I'm a Zarin, and our Father hates me.  I'm probably going to get Sierra to come with me."  Then I had an idea.  I brought Tessen with me into my room, and started playing with him.  I wrote a note to Sierra.  Sier, I can't stay here, my Father already hates me, and it's worse now that I'm a Zarin.  Please come with me.  Verlin stole FIVE HUNDRED Krays from them last night! My Dad, naturally, blames me.  I'm going to take Tessen with me, if Verlin cotinues to steal from them while we're away my Dad will catch him! Sier, please come with me.  Signed, Kayl.  Sier was Sierra's nickname, and Kayl was mine.  I wrote the note in our secret code so nobody else could read it, that way nobody else would know I was running away.  I started packing, in a way that wouldn't be noticed.  I took out all my clothes and decided what I absolutely needed.  I took everything black.  Three pairs of black jeans, the dress ones that I rarely wore.  Two pairs of very dark blue jeans, that were my favorites.  A dark red shirt.  A dark blue, and black striped shirt.  Two plain black shirts.  And one orange shirt.  I took ten pairs of socks, I had two pairs that matched each shirt.  Meaning, fours pairs of black socks, two pairs of orange, two of blue and black striped, and two dark red pairs.  I took lots of "under-garments".  I quietly walked downstairs, and into the kitchen.  Nobody was home.  Dad had left for work.  Mom was out shopping.  And Verlin, and Rania were in school.  Zerinas, and Zarins don't go to school, because they hae to stay home and take care of the house.  I grabbed bread, and things that didn't need to stay cool that we could make sandwiches out of.  Our future held lots of peanut butter sandwiches.  I went back upstairs, and found a note from Sierra.  Kayl, I, too, find it difficult being a Zarin.  I will run with you.  I know how bad your Father can get, I've seen him do bad stuff, you have no clue what he does sometimes, and let me tell you, you don't want to.  Your mother doesn't know either.  I'm all packed, I packed as soon as I got your note.  Tonight we run, see you then.  Signed, Sier.  I packed up Tessen's things, and wrote back to Sierra, telling her that tonight would be fine.  I had food, and clothes for myself, and for Tessen.  That night, Sierra and I passed notes, right before we both walked out of the door.  That night, was like nothing either of us had ever experienced.

A Day in the Life of a Zarin *a Kreature World Tale*

I turned away from the crowd.  I knew what was to come.  Any children that did not have their ceremony before Sierra would become a Zarin.  I couldn't believe how badly Sierra screwed up! I wasn't mad at her though.  It wasn't her fault, she hadn't known better.  I ran all the way home.  I refused to meet any body's eyes on the way.  I was a Zarin.  It didn't matter that there would be another ceremony the very next day.  I was a Zarin, and I couldn't escape that fact.  Maybe, before my 15th birthday I could do something heroic, and become a Zer! I did wish I could be a Zerina, but it was impossible.  I started a "task" list.  I wrote it in a code Sierra, and I had made up, so only we could read it.  Knit.  I loved knitting.  I would knit things for other people, and leave them where the people could find them, but in a way that they would never suspect it was from me.  A Zarin has to do tasks in a special way.  Nobody can know that it was the Zarin that did the tasks.  I got to work.  I started knitting a hat for my baby brother, who would join the children of the town in a few weeks.  Babies do not get their Kreatures until they became children, the Kreature remain in their eggs until then.  I finished knitting the hat unusually quickly.  After about three hours I had three hats, and two pairs of slipper, a definite record.  Then I started cleaning the house.  My whole family was in bed, so it was the time I would do the most tasks.  During the day I would mostly study, and do homework.  At night I would knit, and do other tasks.  I cleaned my Baby brother's room first.  I couldn't help but wonder what Sierra was doing right then.  Was she cleaning?  Or was she asleep?  Her house was right next door to mine, so we had connected our rooms with a bucket on some string.  I wrote a quick note to her:  Sierra: Are you awake?  What did you put on your task list?  I'm sorry, I'm just curious! I almost LIKE being a Zarin! I bet your Zerina brothers don't have to do thing secretly! And I bet they don't get to sneak around your house at night! :) Your Friend! Kaylinn.  I folded the paper and put it in the bucket.  I put the lid on the bucket, and passed it to Sierra's house using a pulley.  Sierra came to the window, almost immediately! She smiled at me, and took the note out of the bucket.  She shook her head as she read it, then she quickly wrote a reply, and sent it over.  Her reply said: Kaylinn: Yeah, I'm awake! I put clean sibling's rooms, knit, make beds, sweep, and clean up after pets on mine! What about you?  By the way don't answer this note tonight! Answer it tomorrow morning, I have a lot of tasks to do! I kind of like being a Zarin too, though my family would probably kill me for saying it! No, brothers don't do secret tasks, or sneak around the house. :) You friend! Sierra.  I smiled at her note, then nodded, and we both went to do more tasks.  I finished cleaning my baby brother's room, then moved onto my younger sister's room.  Rania stirred in her sleep, I was afraid I had woken her! Then she rolled over, away from me, and went back to sleep.  I picked up one of her dolls.  I had given it to her, the day before my 12th birthday.  My reall birthday was weeks before the Zerina ceremony, but I had still started my transformation then.  I had given all my dolls, and toys away.  I had given Rania my favorite doll.  I gently lifted Rania's arm, and put the doll under it.  She smiled in her sleep.  I was afraid I had woken her.  I finished her room, and moved on.  Working quickly and quietly, I sneaked through the house, cleaning almost everything that needed it.  Then I went back to my room, sent Sierra a "good-night!" note, and went to bed.  I woke up with Rania standing over my bed.  "Somebody cleaned my whooole room for me last night, Kaylinn!" She said excitedly.  I was incredibly tired, I had stayed up most of the night.  "That's cool, Rania!" I replied.  She ran out of her room skipping............

TO BE CONTINUED...... Sorry I posted this sooooo late, it's been sitting open, ready to post for HOURS.  :)

A Simple Day in Summer

This is a story I wrote for a writing contest.  The contest theme is "What I like about my Town", but any town is OK.  First prize is $100-$500!! Wish me luck!! :)

I stepped outside, just as a warm summer breeze picked up. The leaves on the trees in my suburban neighborhood were all a pleasant green color, not too light like in the spring, and not too dark like in the fall. The sun shining through the leaves made the whole road light up, in a green color, slightly lighter than the leaves themselves. I put my hair in a ponytail to keep it from blowing all over the place. Then I put on my helmet, and grabbed my bicycle. I was about to ride my bicycle down-town to the library, then afterward I was thinking about going to get some french fries, from my family's favorite pizza place. I'd have to ask my Mom about that one. My Mom, and sisters were riding with me. Our Dad was in work. It's a shame Dad had to work on such a nice day... I thought. We passed by many houses, and streets, but there was the same green light that I had seen on my own road in so many places. After a few streets, and some big buildings, with very few trees around them we were in an area where when you could see the houses, it was just barely, the rest was forests, and small marshes. We rode in a tight formation. Well, a line really. I was in front, my younger sister behind me, our youngest sister behind her, and our Mom in the very back. We rode like this until we got to a place at the rode where we'd have to cross. “Which way are we taking this time, Mom?” I asked. “Let's go through the golf coarse,” She replied. I turned right at the flashing light, rode for maybe three minutes, then crossed the road by turned left onto a small paved road. The road runs through a golf coarse. There are many trees, and lots of foliage on the side of this road. We rode on the twisting road, for a while. I got to the big hill first. I gathered up speed before riding up the hill, so I got to the top without getting of my bike. Everybody else had to get off their bikes. I got a drink from my water bottle while I was waiting for them to get up the hill. They all got a drink, and we started riding again. We rode down the other side of the hill, which isn't as steep. Then, the road started to curve again. Finally, after about fifteen minutes riding through the golf coarse, we took a sharp left turn, then after riding about 50 feet a sharp right. We rode along this road for about ten minutes. First we passed a big piece of the golf coarse. Then we got to an area that is only forest! Forest on both sides of the road, makes it a quite pleasant to ride through. Then we got to a place where we could get our bikes through some big rocks, placed so people couldn't drive over that area I'm guessing, and get into the high-school parking lot. We rode through the parking lot, but that didn't take long. We were in a part of town that is densely populated. We rode to a cross walk, and crossed at the only traffic light I can think of in town! Then we rode down the road across from the schools. We took a few side roads, until we got close to the beach. Then, we were finally at the library. We went inside, and returned the books we had. I got five new books out. That is the limit for children at my library. The library talked to us for a few minutes. Then I asked my Mom if we could go to the pizza place and get french fries, my Mom agreed. We ordered two large buckets of fries. I had to talk her into more than one bucket. Then we walked our bikes down towards the beach. In the center of down town there is a large elevated oval. Called by most people “The Square”. Don't ask me why an oval is called the square. But it is. We ate the french fries in the square, occasionally throwing one to the dozens of seagulls that circled above our heads. When we finished we started the ride home.




What I like most about my home town is how many plants and animals really live here! When you here the name of the town most of the time you'd think, “Wow! That's such a tourist town!” And it is, in the summer. But in the side of town I live on there are many forests, and my family, and I have even seen signs of Deer in the woods near by!

The Books I'm writing!! *IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER!!*

Alphabetical order..... Haha yeah right! Anyway.  These are the series of books I'm writing! The descriptions are about the first books, though I am not adding the book titles.  The author name is going to be in () thingies, which I cannot think of the name for right now.  Keet is the name if it's only by me! If the title has * in front of it, it's based on a true story! If it has ** next to it, it's based on a dream I had.  And if it has *** next to it, it's just a cool idea for a story.  ;)

**The Powers(Keet):
Kylie's test is to kill a demon.  Kylie doesn't believe in demons.  Luckily, she's got help.  Her sister, and her new found friend, and protector, and her protector's siblings, are going to help her find her lost sisters, and her mother.  But first she's got to kill the "Out-law" demon.  Kylie, was an orphan most of her life, and until meeting her father, didn't believe in magic, vampires, zombies, demons, elves, ghosts, or "protectors".  And she hadn't even heard of Zompires! Then her Dad came along and changed her, and her sibling's lives forever.

**Kreature World(Maybelle Leah Kelly):
Best friends Kylie Black, Maria Luna, Bella Nell, and Mae Nell, discovered a new planet! They call it kreature world, as their club is The Kreature Club.  These four homeschooling kids, build a high-tech rocket, and fly to outer-space to land on their new planet.  What they don't expect is the people living on the planet! People originally from earth, who now live on this new planet with odd creatures called Kreatures.  The girls get their own kreatures, but since they did not swear to live on kreature world until they turned 15, and became adults on kreature world, their kreatures ended deformed and evil! The girls have to save kreature world from the Kreatures of evil!

***Sledders(Maybelle Leah Kelly):
Maya, a Siberian husky, is tranquilized, then wakes up in a wooden crate! There must be some mistake! But no, her former owners sold her to a man starting a sled dog team.  Maya falls in love with a cat named Blueberry, and adopts two wolf puppies! Then Juneau, and Star come along.  Maya falls for Juneau, and Blueberry falls for Star, immediately! As these dogs are joined by others, they face angry bears, huge wolf packs, and long, hard races!

*The Rodents(Keet):
Adele and Xavier are having their first litter of baby mice! When only one of the litter survives, they try to protect him with their lives! The colony of mice must leave their home when a cat finds where they live.  Zosimo Mortyss, "Survivor of Death" is allowed to walk, in between his parents, though his eyes are not open yet.  Then a cat finds the moving colony, and his parents run in different directions! Zosimo gets left behind.  Then a human girl finds him, and takes care of him.  After a few days without his mother, Zosimo dies, partially from dispare at not being able to find his mother, and partially because the human doesn't know enough about how to care for baby mice.  Then, Zosimo comes back to life, when Adele gives birth a second time.  A story of birth, life, learning, death, and re-birth.

***The Unnatural(Keet):
Kelsey Atiya, has been on her own in a Zombie Apocalypse for six months.  Then, a pair of twin boys find where she lives.  Kelsey "adopts" the boys, and trains them how to survive.  Later on, Jack, and Peter realize that Kelsey is their older sister, who had been kidnapped, only weeks before they were born.  The kidnappers were not able to have child, so they took Kelsey, and raised the girl as their own. 

***Chestnut(Keet):
A girl with an odd name gets a puppy for her 11th birthday.  "Water-lily" (I started these when I was young
-.-) names the puppy Chestnut, and they go on kinds of adventures!

***The Wolves(has an author name, which I do not remember!):
Leader, Forest, Star, and Sniffs are kicked out of their too large, and still growing pack.  They start their own pack.  Leader (he is given this name when they start their new pack), and Forest give birth to 3 children.  Bluestar, Bear, and Moose.  Star's children are all still born, except one.  Blackmoon.  Blackmoon, and Bluestar eventually take over the pack when their parents die, and give birth to their own children.  Moss, Rain, and Fern.  (Moss is my wolf charater, and Rain is Meep's)  The adult wolves bring the pups out for their first hunting lessons, while hunting the pack meets three loners, who become part of the pack.  Then the pack meets a rival pack, in battle. 

***The Treasure Hunters(Keet):About two kids, Marie, and John, who get taken by pirates while on a whale-watch with their family! The pirates take them to an island nobody has ever heard about.  The island has all kinds of weird creatures on it.  The kids meet the people who live on the island, and are told amazing stories.  The kids learn they have to find a treasure, otherwise the whole island might die! It's a race between the pirates, and the twins, the question is, Who will win?

***Midnight Shadows(Keet):
A bunch of horror short stories! Not very scary, in the style of "The Midnight Library" and "Tales from the Shadows".  (No, I did not use the two names and put them together, I swear!)

***Silly Stories(Keet):Traditional children's stories re-made! Little Red Riding Hood becomes The Little Red Sending Box in Silly stories!

**The Dog's Hero(Keet!):Dreamer is a dog who is owned by a fake cop.  Dreamer got his name because he always dreamed of having a nice home, and so, he was always a nice dog.  Dreamer was severely abused by his owner.  One day his owner was "investigating" a crime scene.  When he went to places of crimes he dresses like a police officer, then he snuck in, and stole the people's valuables.  One day a little girl caught the man in his act, and Dreamer was taken away.  But Dreamer was going to the pound, not the animal shelter, the pound.  The little girl couldn't bare to let Dreamer go, and there be a possiblity of him dying, so the girl requested that Dreamer live with her.  And Dreamer's dream finally came true!! :) (This is a DREAM I had, get it?  Dreamer, Dream, haha!)

That's it...... For now, dun dun dun!!!!!!!!!! :P

Woah.......

So much for me trying to post every day in 2011! At least in Janury, because with competitions, and recitals, and dance classes, and music classes, and stuff I wouldn't be able to post EVERYDAY..... Oh well.  But I've missed a few days now... Mostly because I've been busy.  Here is another AMAZING, MUST READ POST!

Dance: I'm doing a lot of dance this year! Three ballet classes, two jazz classes, one musical theater class, one tap class, and I'm on my dance school's competition team! I do about eleven and a half hours of dance every week.
Games: I am currently interested in only one game, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, though I hate the Harry Potter books.  Actually not true, I liked 1-4.  :D
Gardening: It's winter-time now, there are no gardens....
Holidays: I'm going to post a knitting challenge on Knit and Adventure soon! It's a Valentine's day challenge <3

Pets: I have a lot of pets! We are also pet-sitting my older sister's rabbit, Jay.  Yup, we gave her this rabbit...
Poems: This poem is called Glittering Nights:
Dew drops form and then they freeze,
On this night, on the cool winter ground.
The stars come out, their shapes are keys,
As they glitter in the night, all around.
The full moon rises, above the sea,
It's shining face, just visable in the clouds.
The water shines bright, just for me.
As I walk through the silent woods, without sounds,
Rolling hills in the distance, to far to see,
Where wild flowers once grew, just for you.
As I think of the nights, that once were here,
I can see you glittering, you're very near.
Yup, I wrote this poem.  It takes pure skill to rhyme "clouds" and "sounds" :)
School: After this post I get to do lots of Math! :D (:\)
Sledders: Maya is a dog.  From Sledders.  Gosh I haven't written sledders in forever!
The Powers: I'm trying to finish The Powers before the end of the year, or before the end of May, hopefully the second, but if not then I'll make it before Halloween.  :)
