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!
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.
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:
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.
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.
And with that I conclude this post. I hope you guys like these kinds of posts. New sign-offs and dividers coming soon!
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
there’ll be sunshine
Then I asked myself
“Why should I wait?”
for sunshine and rainbows
When I can just
dance in the rain
Hey Dreamers! This post is dedicated to my IRL Best Friend: Saanika
I don’t even know how to start. She is one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet and I’m so grateful that we met. This is for you:
Change and Friendship
I’m not the
girl I used to be,
girl you used to know
two years ago
A lot can change in two years
You’re not the
girl who wore pigtails,
You’re not the girl
I used to know
two years ago
A lot can change in two years
But the one thing
that didn’t change
Is our friendship
that grew stronger
as we were apart
We might change
a hundred times,
but I hope
stays the same
We’ll change together
support each other
Everyone needs a friend like Saanika. A sweet and quirky girl, who’s always there for you. When I moved, she kept in touch all the time, sometimes because of the time difference she used to call in the middle of the night. When we met again I was sure without a doubt, that it would be one of those moments that you know you’ll be friends forever. Our connection was still there. And we never ran out of things to talk about. That’s my favorite thing about her: I can always be with her and I’ll never be bored.
Sometimes when we video chat we are both quiet for a second not knowing what to say. But after that second we burst out laughing. Whenever I talk with her it feels like nothing else matters. I love her and miss her so much. I’ll walk the edge of the world for her.
I remember the day I met her. Me and my other friend were collecting seeds on the school ground (yes, I used to collect seeds). And she was new. She came and joined us and our friendship just grew.
Click here to see her blog. She doesn’t post a lot, but that’s okay.
*The following is a true story*
She had been preparing for weeks for this day. Endless days of spelling out words to her mom and looking through the dictionary to learn what it meant. Her mom believed that it wasn’t enough to just know how to spell a word, you had to know what it meant too. All her hardwork would show that day. This was her chance to show how determined she was to do well. Winning would have been amazing. But even if she didn’t win, she had to do her best. Excited and nervous, she sat with her family in the front row. She looked around and spotted her friend from Spanish class. They waved to each other and talked about their nervousness and excitement. The girl was glad her friend was there.
Finally, they were about to start the Spelling Bee. There were chairs set up on the stage for the contestants to sit on. On the side there was a table for the two judges, on the table there was a little bell which the judges would ring if you spelt something wrong. The librarian was calling up the contestants to be seated. The girl got a seat in the very front. She would be the fifth person to go. Luckily she had a seat next to her friend. They chatted for a while, while everyone got situated.
The Spelling Bee began. They started with the easy words. It was the first round. She was nervous, but confident. It was her turn. “Your word is ‘chatter'” said the judge. “This is easy!” the girl thought. “C H A T T E R” she said. The judges whispered to each other. “Can you repeat the word please”, asked the other judge. Nervously, she repeated it. The next moment all her happiness fell apart. She heard the “ding” of the little bell. She was devastated. On the verge of tears, she ran off the stage and sat by her parents. Her parents started whispering to each other. They had heard the right spelling, they must have misheard the word. “Was the word ‘shatter’?” asked her dad to her mom. The girl was weeping. She had practiced for weeks and weeks and this was what happened. Her hardwork hadn’t paid off. She felt really bad about herself.
Soon the librarian announced a short break. Her friend came over to comfort her. She rushed to the bathroom to wash her face. Meanwhile her dad was talking to the judges. He called his daughter over to the judges. The judges gave her an explanation of what had happened. Both of them had mis heard what she had said. They hadn’t heard the “A” and instead of “T” they heard “D”. The girl realized she hadn’t spoken clearly enough and she partly blamed her Indian accent.
Later that night, after the Spelling Bee her parents took her out to dinner to her favorite restaurant to make her feel better. She felt a bit better. But the next day, when her friends asked her about it, she had to put on a smile, explain what happened and tell them it was fine.
A few days passed and she was over it. But she would never forget what happened and what she learnt that day.
Hey Dreamers! I hope you enjoyed that little story I wrote and yes it really happened. I want you guys to know that mistakes happen. Everyone has a right to make a mistake once in a while. Don’t dwell on it, learn from it. Besides, this was really fun to write and moments like these can turn into stories you tell to your friends. Bye!
