Dreamer Diaries #3

Hey Dreamers! A lot has happened since my last Dreamer Diaries post, so I decided to write another one! Before I begin, I wanted to tell you guys, that I now have a blogging email. It is:


You can contact me on there, if you have a question, want to collaborate or just to chat. On that note, let’s begin:


If you’re reading this, you probably noticed my new blog design. I redesigned it for Christmas!  The picture from the header is from last year. I edited it on Canva and Rachel did a tutorial on how to make it snow on your blog. I think it looks really pretty!


Since it’s close to Christmas, I’ve been listening to a lot of Christmas songs, here are a few of m favorites:

Silver Nights by Sabrina Carpenter

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas by Noah Cyrus

Jingle Bell Rock by Glee

Christmas the Whole Year Round by Sabrina Carpenter

The First Noel by David Archuleta

Peppermint Christmas by Owl City

I’ll Be Home by Meghan Trainor

Angels We Have Heard on High by David Archuleta

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Sabrina Carpenter


I live in Texas, and it actually snowed here! It was so surprising and no-one saw it coming. It was just a little, but it was fun. Here are some pictures:


Posts you should look forward to this month:

  1. A Christmas Poem
  2. A Christmasy doll photoshoot
  3. Some Christmas Art


The class spelling bee is tomorrow! In the class spelling bee, you compete against your classmates and one person is chosen from each class to go to the school spelling bee. I went to the school spelling bee, and you can read about that disaster right here.


I hope you enjoyed reading this post.

What’s your favorite thing about Christmas/winter?

What’s your favorite kind of cookie?

Look at me! I haven’t even designed my normal sign-off and I’ve already designed a Christmas one


NaNoWriMo Update + Snippets

Hey Dreamers! So NaNoWriMo is coming to an end. *sighs* I always enjoy scrambling to get the number of words I need that day finished. Anyways, I decided to do an update post.

Word count goal: 10000

Current word count: 8682

Number of chapters: 13

86% Done!

So here’s the thing: I am 86% done with my word count, but not my story. My story is about 45% done? I don’t really know. I don’t think I’ll finish my story, but I’m kinda okay with it. Is that a bad thing? My goal in NaNo is to get into a daily habit of writing. This story is the longest thing I have ever written and I’m pretty proud of myself. I think my story’s coming together well too. And I just finished writing a really intense argument! How’s your story going?

Here are a few snippets:

This was going to be an interesting trip.

I had no idea what that piece of paper was going to lead me to.

“I believe in you”, she said. Then she turned around and went away. Jia and I looked at each other. Our adventure had just begun.

“I really think it’s this one. I can . . . I can sort of feel it.”

“Okay?”, Eileen asked.

I shook my head. “No.”

“Fine! I will go out there by myself, and I’ll show you that I can take care of myself.”



I was falling. I closed my eyes, I tried to scream, but I couldn’t bring myself to.

“Oh nothing, just that I don’t think pineapples grow in the Redwood Forest and they certainly don’t grow on trees.”

“I’ve forgiven a lot of people for a lot of things. That doesn’t mean I always mean it.”

“So you basically hold grudges?”

“I don’t hold grudges!”

“Yeah I can totally see that.”

“You know what? I can’t handle you right now.”

“You can’t handle ME?! Well, you’re not the one who fell of a who-knows-how-many foot tree and is helping an oversensitive girl cut a pineapple that is not supposed to be here in the first place.”

“You fell of the tree because of your ignorant little mind. If you had just kept your mouth shut, none of this would’ve happened.”

“Well, if you hadn’t been so overcautious, maybe I would have kept my mouth shut.”


“And you’re blaming this on me, so I guess we’re even. And stop screaming.”


“Yeah, totally.”

“Stop being sarcastic!”

“You stop being overdramatic.”

“I am NOT being overdramatic.”

“Yeah, right.”

” I just . . . I can’t handle this right now. We’re in the middle of a forest, cutting a pineapple and arguing over . . .  I don’t even know what we’re arguing about.”

“Then why are we arguing?”

“I don’t know!”

“I don’t know either!”


“You’re the one who started it!”




I really enjoyed writing the last one. If you haven’t already, you should check out Samantha’s snippets, they’re amazing!!!

What did you think of my snippets? How are you doing on your novel?

Dream On


Feminism and Being a “Girly” Girl

Hey Dreamers! Sorry, I haven’t been able to post. I’ve just been really caught up in NaNoWriMo and school and other things. Anyways, this post is about something I’ve been thinking of. A few days ago I thought to myself: Am I really a feminist? 

Who is a feminist? A feminist is someone who fights for women’s rights. Am I really a feminist? I’m not strong and athletic. I’m not super-smart. I’m not the kind of girl that proves stereotypes wrong and breaks barriers. In fact I’m a pretty stereotypical girl: quiet, loves to do art, calm, spends most of her time indoors, doesn’t like sports, I collect jewelry. I even kind of like dressing up and doing fun hairstyles for occasions. I am a “girly” girl. Am I a feminist? I hope I can be.

In most books, the mean girl is always “girly”. She likes to dress up, she’s dumb, she’s vain, loves the color pink. They show that being “girly”, is a weakness. If I like to dress up, it doesn’t mean that I only care about how I look, or that I’m vain or dumb. In most books, the “strong” girl is almost always : athletic, really good at sports, hates the color pink, likes being outdoors, smart. I think a girl can be “girly” and strong. Most books and movies fail to portray characters that are strong and “girly”. Being girly shouldn’t be something bad. I’ve met some girls who say that they hate pink because it’s so girly. They say they hate shopping or they hate dresses because they think that by hating “girly” things, they’re proving stereotypes wrong and being feminists. But, aren’t feminists supposed to be showing everyone that they should embrace all girls for who they are? I’m sick of girly girls being shown as mean or weak. Being strong doesn’t always mean being physically strong.  What about being strong on the inside? All girls are strong on the inside. I want all girls to be portrayed strong in both ways.

I’m not saying that being a tomboy is a bad thing. It’s an amazing thing. But I feel like this is something that isn’t said a lot and I want to put it out there. I hope you think about this and I hope that from now on girly girls are shown to their full potentials. Remember: being girly is NOT a bad thing and it is NOT a weakness. It can also be a strength. Everyone is unique.

Just because I’m girly,

It doesn’t mean that I love pink

Just because I like jewelry,

doesn’t mean that I’m vain

Just because I like to dress up,

It doesn’t mean that I only care about how I look

Just because I’m not athletic,

doesn’t mean that I’m not strong

Just because I’m not outspoken,

doesn’t mean I can’t be a feminist

I am “girly”

but I’m also strong

And this who I am.

I hope you guys liked this post.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you a girly girl, tomboy or both?

My National Novel Writing Month Novel

Hey Dreamers! Why am I excited for November? Because it’s National Novel Writing Month! Last year I started late with no plan. That won’t happen this time. I’m going to share my plan for this novel with you guys. Here we go:

My Idea:

I got this Idea, when we traveled to the Redwood Forest. It was amazingly beautiful. I loved it. So here is my idea:

A girl goes on a school field trip to the Redwood Forest. The class stays at a hotel near the forest. Her roommate is a really shy girl, whom she doesn’t like. They find some sort-of clue that,  leads them to to the Redwood Forest to find some treasure. They stumble upon some unexpected circumstances as they adventure into the Redwoods…

That was a horrible synopsis.


Okay, so here’s the thing, before I wrote this post I had no idea what to name my characters. Since, I’m such a procrastinator, I went and searched up names and I found the perfect names. Or so I think.

Eileen Jane Anderson:

  • Has always lived in California.
  • Very smart
  • Loves Science
  • Environmentalist
  • Secretly loves knitting
  • Wants to be a doctor when she grows up
  • Loses her temper easily
  • Most afraid of the effects of pollution
  • What she wants most: To make the world a better place

Jia Yang:

  • Moved from China when she was four
  • Loves playing the Violin
  • Shy
  • Has a hard time standing up for herself
  • Sensitive
  • Wants to be a musician when she grows up
  • Most afraid of being isolated
  • What she wants most: A best friend

So those were my characters. I was thinking of either switching the points of views, so 1 chapter would be in Eileen’s point of view and the 2nd chapter would be in Jia’s point of view. Or I could do it in third point of view. What do you guys think I should do?

That’s all the planning I’ve done for now. Are you guys doing NaNoWriMo this year? What’s your story about? What do you think of my story idea?


Dreamer Diaries #2

Hey Dreamers! Today I decided to do another Dreamer Diaries post. Here we go:


I have 59 followers right now. Wheeeeeeee! That’s a lot. My goal is to get to a 100 before the year ends. I have my fingers crossed that we can get there.


Believe it or not I still haven’t designed my dividers and sign~off. Like my header, I wanted to draw something and use that for the sign~off and dividers The problem is, I have no idea about what I want to draw.

Any ideas for what I should do for my sign~off and dividers?

If you do, please leave a comment.


I finally finished reading Harry Potter. It was amazing. Once, I had put a hold on it from the school library. I waited three months for it, and I still didn’t get it. Now that I’m in 7th grade, my Language Arts teacher had the book in her little classroom library. I immediately asked her if I could borrow it. She said yes, so I spent days carrying that book around everywhere.

If you could have one of the three hallows: the invisibility cloak, the resurrection stone or the elder wand. Which one would you choose?

I would pick the invisibility cloak.

For all the book dragons out there like me, do you ever love a book so much that you carry it around everywhere just in case you have time to read it?


At the start of the school year, the school told us that they were going to have a time capsule that would be opened in about 10~20 years. So we were put into groups, and each group had to make an artifact that represents the school. The school chose 4 artifacts that would go in the time capsule. I was in a group with 3 other amazing girls. This is what we made:

Yup! A mini~library. Isn’t it adorable? They chose ours! YAY! The principal told us that she loved ours very much and she asked us to give a speech in front of the whole school. We were the only student speakers. We were so excited! It went great. Yesterday my mom took me and 2 of the other girls for ice cream to celebrate.

If you built a time capsule, what would you put in it?


I hope you enjoyed that post. Have a great day!

Dream On


Beautiful Days ~ Photography

Do you ever have days

where everything seems wonderful?

When life couldn’t be better.

When you couldn’t need anything else

except what you have right then.

When what you need

is what you have.

You smile to yourself

And thank the world

for what you have.

You think about

the ones you love

and realize why

you love them.

You can see

the beauty of this world

all around you.

You learn new things

and think about things you’ve learnt before.

Those are the beautiful days

that everyone needs.

I dream of those days.

Do you?
