Dreamer Diaries

Hey Dreamers! Today I’m going to start a new series on my blog called Dreamer Diaries where I tell you anything and everything about my life. And I made up this series just in case somedays I don’t have time to write a quality post. So I’ll just write one of these!

Okay let’s begin. I have a few questions for you:

Did you notice the new blog design?

Do you like it?

So, I sat down to write a post and then I decided: “You know, it’s time to change my blog design. Then I got out my sketchbook and drew a bunch of headers I could use. I tested out multiple themes. I finally chose one and tried my favorite on it. It didn’t work. So I went through many others until I found this one. By the way, this theme is called Penscratch 2. And then I thought the header looked to plain. So, I went to picmonkey and edited the photo/drawing and put a quote on it to fit my blog. And here it is. I really hope you like it. I love it. The theme is really customizable you can do anything with it.

♥♥♥♥♥

On to other things. This year I had to move schools because they built a new school and I have to go to the new school. So in the last 3 years, I have switched school 3 times! Isn’t that crazy?!

♥♥♥♥♥

My dad’s birthday is coming up soon. Me and my mom have picked out a gift for him. And I’m going to make something that I will reveal after his birthday. Just in case he decides to read this blog.

Any of you celebrating a birthday this month?

♥♥♥♥♥

Do you ever have the feeling that you’re forgetting something when you’re actually not? And then your day becomes even worse because you actually DID forget something very important.

♥♥♥♥♥

Right now I’m reading a book called Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan. A few days ago I finished a really good book. It’s called A Mango~Shaped Space by Wendy Mass. It’s an amazing book. I recommend it to everyone.

Have you read any of the books I mentioned above?

What book are you currently reading?

♥♥♥♥♥

And with that I conclude this post. I hope you guys like these kinds of posts. New sign-offs and dividers coming soon!

Dance in the Rain

It was raining so hard,

I was sitting by the window

counting drops of rain

 

Thinking in my head

about the rainbows 

that lie ahead

 

Smiling to myself

hoping someday

there’ll be sunshine

 

Then I asked myself

“Why should I wait?”

for sunshine and rainbows

When I can just

dance in the rain

 

Darling Daisy

Hey Dreamers! Today I want to introduce you to a new friend I found today. Meet  .  .  .  .

Daisy!

So Daisy is  .  .  .

Let me speak now Arunima!

Okay fine!

Hi! I’m Daisy as you already know. Arunima got me from a vintage shop. I had been sitting in a box with the other dolls for days! It was getting stuffy in there. I was so happy when she picked me out of the box and smiled at me. But then when her dad was paying up the nice lady at the shop put me in the paper bag. I couldn’t wait to get out of there. It was super-bumpy in the car. After what felt like ages we reached home and I was FREEEEEEEEEEEEE! 

Now that I’ve told you my journey let’s sit down and chat! I’ll telly you guys about myself.

My birthday is on November 14th. I’m going to throw a huge party and you guys have to come! My favorite color is blue if you can’t already tell. I love talking and making friends.I don’t like being quiet and reading or whatever quiet people do. It’s so boring. I know Arunima loves being quiet and reading so I’m guessing you guys like being quiet and reading too so no offense. But I think reading and being quiet is boring. I also love being outside and I especially love picnics. I mean who doesn’t? 

I absolutely love love love candy! And dancing!And talking! Oh, did I say that already? I also like watching Disney Movies! My favorite movie is Alice in Wonderland. I want to go to Wonderland and meet the Cheshire Cat! I’m so excited to be blogging now it’s fun. But I have to go now I’ll see ya soon! 

~Daisy

P.S I’ve been wanting to ask, do you think I should create a separate blog for all my dolls or do you like it when I post them on here? Please tell me in the comments below. I’ve been thinking about it for a while.

 

CWWC #8~ A Fresh Start

Hey Dreamers! Today I’ll be posting the last CWWC Challenge. This was such a great experience and I truly loved it. It really helped me grow. I used all three prompts.  I’m on TEAM HOGWARTS:

Here’s my story:

 

“This is going to be great!”My mom said happily as she turned the steering wheel. “Sure”, my older sister replied sarcastically. “Alice!” Mom yelled, “This is a great opportunity. We can have so many adventures!” Alice and I looked at each other. We knew the real reason we were moving.  It wasn’t because of opportunity or adventure. It was because of my dad. He had died a month ago a crash. None of us got over it. So, mom thought it would be a good idea to move away. So we packed our bags, sold our house and here we were. Driving to the middle of nowhere.

“Tracy, tell mom that moving away isn’t the answer”, Alice said to me.

“Um…”

“Look, I know.  .   .   .   .   .  things, haven’t been great. But we need to get a new start”, mom said.

We all fell silent, thinking about dad. I put on my headphones, hoping that listening to music would take my mind off of the situation. Soon I fell asleep.

When I woke up, it was completely dark outside. “Mom?”, I asked.

“Oh, honey you’re awake! I was planning to stop at a restaurant or a fast food place so we can eat.”

“Doesn’t look like we’re gonna be having food for a while”, Alice grumbled.

Mom sighed. But Alice was right. The road was open and all we could see were hills. No lights, no shops, no drive-thrus, no other cars. We drove for what seemed like ages. Our stomachs were grumbling and we all were very cranky. Finally, we saw a small general store that looked like it was open. Mom sighed as she parked the car.

“Not exactly what I had in mind”, Alice complained.

“Well you can starve then!”, mom shouted. We looked at her shocked. She took a deep breath and walked out of the car.

When we walked in, there was a girl. She had straight blonde hair and looked like she hadn’t slept in a month. She was chewing bubblegum. We walked around and picked up some bread, peanut butter and jelly and some plastic spoons, forks and knives. We also picked up some snacks just incase the rest of the town was as lonely as this. When we went to the cash register to pay, the girl blew a green bubble.

Mom tapped the table a little bit to wake her up. She looked at us and sleepily said, “How can I help you?”

“We’d like to buy these please”, mom answered.

“Mmhmm”, she murmured.

” Do you mind if we sit on the outside steps?”

“I don’t care.”

We sat on the steps and ate quietly. It was really awkward between us. Alice was on her phone when she whined,

“My phone is not working!”

“Just like your brain”, mom muttered.

“Mom!” I said loudly.

Mom sighed and looked away. After we were done with dinner, mom went back inside and asked the girl

“Do you know some place we can stay for the night?”

“There’s an inn a few miles away.”

“How long will it take to get there?”

“About 45 minutes.”

“Ugh! Can you at least tell me the way?”, mom was really frustrated.

” Look here lady. I’ve been working all day. I’m tired. Don’t talk to me like that. I’ll give you a map and you leave me alone.”

“Ok, show me how to get there on the map.”

“You’ll figure it out! It’s just a straight road for heaven’s sake.”

“You.    .    .”

I pulled her away saying,

“Mom! It’s okay! We’ll figure it out.”

We just stood there for a second. We sat in the car and drove for another hour or so until we finally reached the inn. I was tired and kind of afraid about what was going to happen. “Tracy, we’re going to be fine”, Alice said while mom was looking to see if there were rooms available. This irritated me a little,” Says the person who was complaining for the last hour”, I snapped. She looked like she was going to say something but mom came out and told us that she had found a room for us.

As soon as we got into the room we dropped on the bed and fell asleep.

The next morning I woke up and looked outside. It was a beautiful day, but it didn’t feel so beautiful on the inside. Mom was still asleep and Alice might have gone to get coffee or something. I went out to get some fresh air. It was a small inn and there wasn’t a sign of any other people there. I looked at mom’s car. It was really dusty. But on the windshield there was a note written in the middle of the dust.

“We should talk”, it said. Under it there was a map. It had been marked. There was a star somewhere behind the inn. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t even know if this was meant for me. My curiosity got the better of me. I ran around the small building o get to the back. I looked at the map and walked around a little until I was on the spot marked on the map. It was damp and kind of dirty. I wondered why the person chose this spot.

“Tracy?”

“Alice?”

“What are you doing here?”

“I could ask the same.”

“I asked first.”

“Fine! I saw a note on the windshield with a map that led me here.”

“Oh.”

“What?”

“That wasn’t meant for you.”

“Who was it for?”

“Mom.”

“Why did you want to talk to mom?”

“You don’t want to know.”

“Ugh! Come on Alice. I’m not a kid.”

“Well you sure do act like one.”

“What?!

“Tracy, do you know the real reason we moved?”

“Yeah. Mom couldn’t get over dad’s death, so she thought it would be a good idea to move.”

“We didn’t move because of mom. We moved because of you.”

“What do you mean?”

“After dad died, you haven’t been yourself. You stopped talking to everyone. Your grades went down drastically. You always put your headphones and cut everyone off. Mom thought it would be a good idea to get a fresh start. Obviously that’s not working.”

I stood quiet looking at my shoes.

In a gentler tone she said “Look, I know how you feel. When dad died my world fell apart. But you have to put your life back together again. You can’t dwell on it forever. If dad was here he wouldn’t want you to be so sad would he?”

“He wouldn’t “, I whispered as a tear streamed down my face. Alice came up and hugged me.

“I’m sorry”, I said.

“Me too.”

“Me three”, said a very familiar voice.

“Mom!!!”

We all three hugged not even thinking about how she got here.

“We should find a house soon”, mom said suddenly.

Alice replied “I know exactly whom to ask.”

The next moment we were in the car. Driving down the same road we had driven down yesterday. We stopped at the same little shop. The same girl was there. She looked like she had gotten enough sleep last night. She noticed us.

“Here to argue with me again?”

Mom cringed “Umm yeah. Sorry about that. I was wondering where I could find a house we could buy.”

The girl’s look of disgust changed into a look of surprise.

“Why would you be looking for a house?”

“So we could live here. Of course!”

She stared at us.

“Why?” Mom asked.

“Nobody stays in the valley for very long.”

I piped in.

“So,  guess we’ll be the first.”

I hope you liked that little story of mine. Kind of sad that CWWC is ending. But so grateful that I got to be a part of it. Have a great day!

 

 

CWWC #7~ Just a Dream

Hey Dreamers! I’m sorry I didn’t post #6, but I had school. I didn’t want to miss another one, so here I am. I used all three prompts.

 

Closed my eyes and

walked through the gate

Entered a dream

and saw a land,

Where the city kids had hair

every shade of the rainbow

And their eyes sparkled

every minute of the hour

  

There were rides,

there were slides,

there was fun

via

I felt a feeling

I hadn’t felt

in a long time

It was “Joy”

I was happy

I was

having fun

It was paradise

 

 

But then

there flashed 

a sign

“Leave Immediately”

it said

 

I closed my eyes

in despair

And when 

I opened them

I was 

in my

bedroom

 

 

As I sat

on my bed

I realized

It was a dream

 

As upset

as I was

I knew 

that dreams

had to end

sometime

 

They were nice

and they made

you feel like

your life wasn’t 

a mess

 

But they were dreams,

They weren’t real

And as fun as dreams were,

I knew 

that

I’d

have to

wake up

and

face 

reality
