Tales From Drivers Ed///Days 2,3,4,5,6.

Hello everyone

I have a problem where I start something and then I never finish it. #Procrastination

But wow, this post was highly requested. So thank you guys for wanting to hear more!!!






Day 2


We practiced maneuverability. I found out I am not as bad as I thought I was going to be. I only clipped the edge of one of the cones. *thumbs up to me* 

The rest of the time, we were cooped up inside watching kind of boring videos. 



Day 3


Day 3 was depressing video day. Yay me. The instructor showed us all these videos of parents of teens who were killed either by drinking or texting and driving. There was this one of this teen got distracted by her cell phone and she hit and killed a little boy. I almost cried. After it was over, I had to go into the bathroom to calm down. 




Day 4

Day 4! Watching more boring videos!!!!! Funny Guy also drove our instructor up a wall. He likes wolf-howling while people are trying to talk!!!!! It was annoying. I was very close to strangling him!



Day 5


We had a new kid join the class. He was making up the days he missed from another class. He chose the seat right next to me. *whyyyyyyy* Troopers came and talked to us also. They were really funny. It was a younger cop and an older cop. The older one was the younger one's superior. So they were bantering back and forth. I was in stiches. XD


Day 6

We had another new kid today. It just happened to be Funny Guy's best friend. Our instructor was ecstatic (not) We ordered pizza and our instructor brought ice cream. It was really fun. There was also more video watching in between the all the sugar. :D 


That concludes drivers ed!!!!!!! Thank you guys for being so enthusiastic about it!

Seventeen

Hey guys!

So there are a lot of songs about 16 and 18 and 15. There's a 21 and a 22.

But there aren't any about 17, so I decided to fix that.






Seventeen




Honestly I wish we could never grow up
I wish we could just stay young
Avoid all the responsibilities 
of being eighteen 



Chorus
I wish we could stay 
seventeen forever
I wish life didn't have to be so hard
Why can't we, stay seventeen



Happily ever afters don't exist in real life
Peter Pan isn't coming for you tonight
Tinkerbell is just a firefly in the night sky
Believing gets harder each year


Chorus


Bridge
I hate having to grow up so fast
Why do I have to leave my childhood behind?


Chorus

Tales From Drivers Ed///Day 1

Hi guys!

Yesterday, I started my drivers ed class. I have it this whole week so I thought I would share my experience with you!


So as my mom was driving me there, we passed this teenage boy walking. He was carrying running shoes.

Mom: He's carrying shoes, he must run track or something. *looks at me* He was cute.

Me: Moooooooom!!!

I don't really know what she wanted me to say. Yes Mom, I thought he was cute, turn the car around so I can get his number.


There is 7 of us in total. 5 boys and 2 girls. Our instructor is pretty cool. She let's us ask all these questions and make jokes . It's a very fun class.

A letter to each of my classmates

Dear "country bumpkin" you sir, may deny that you are a country boy, but let me tell you that you are the countriest bumpkin I have ever met.

Dear "jujitsu kid" you should really show us some of your cool moves. What you do is pretty cool.

Dear "M" you are the other girl in the class. I advise that we band together to combat the boys!

Dear "Falcon" why are you so freaking tall!!! I feel like a midget next to you.

Dear "Funny Guy" most of what you say is actually not funny but sometimes you say stuff that is funny. Also if you keep whistling while we are trying to take a test, I will go back there and wring your neck!!

Dear "Quiet One" you are the other quiet one in the class besides me. You draw phenomenally and you should keep up the good work.


One funny thing that happened is when our instructor took us outside to look at the cars. There was this big truck that had recently hauled some manure so it really stunk. "Funny Guy" decided to sit down on the bumper of the truck.

Instructor: No! You shouldn't sit on that there is manure on that!

Funny Guy: There isn't any manure on here.

Me: Not anymore, it's all on your shorts.

He spent two minutes turning around like a dog chasing it's tail.

The rest of the time, we spent watching videos and the instructor let us talk the rest of the time to break the ice.

I have another class tonight, so I will tell you all about it tomorrow!

Camp NaNoWriMo July 2017

Hello everyone!



I won Camp NaNoWriMo!!!! Sort of......

I wrote 2,000 words this month. Which doesn't sound like a lot but for me it was an accomplishment.

And guess what? To celebrate, y'all are going to get to read some snippets.


I quicken my pace, then SLAM! I knock into something and fall on the ground. "Oh, I'm sorry!" I hear, "Let me help you up." Looking up, I behold the most gorgeous boy I have ever seen staring down at me.


"So the new guy," she said, "what was that I interrupted?" She gasped. "Were you having a moment?"

I groaned and glanced at her. "No, we were not having a moment. We just met and he thought he gave me a concussion." "That is the farthest from a moment ever!"



I opened the door to the music room and walked to the piano. Ah, finally I get to practice! I play a few bars to warm up and get my feeling back for the keys. I launch into the Moonlight Sonata. It echoes throughout the room and I feel at peace.

There you go!!


Things I learned this month:

Telling yourself to write each night is hard!!!!! I used to write when I felt like it, but writing every night is very difficult.

I never realized how fun making a Pinterest board to inspire you is.

Movie soundtracks are the best thing to listen to while you write.

Never mess with Gray and other Lord of the Rings fangirls. They will come after you with battle axes and bows!

Hope you enjoy the snippets!
