“Ocean Daughter”: sirens, goddesses, and water myths // StayHomeWriMo Day 5

Hey everyone!

Today’s post is a little bit late because I didn’t pre-write it this time, but I quite like the premise of it. I’ve gotta say, I’m disappointed in the end, though. It had potential but I wasted it :/

Prompt: write a fantasy short story using the word ‘Sea’ as a motif.

The waves crashed gently around the girl, pulling her in closer as her dark, curly hair spread out under her as she floated under the surface.

Deeper, she thought. Take me deeper to the Ocean.

The waves obeyed her. After all, she was nearly one of their princesses. They pulled her under, tugging her down dozens, hundreds, thousands of feet into the inky until suddenly-

Come, my dear. The Ocean beckoned to the girl, wrapping its arms around her soothingly. You’re safe, love. Continue reading ““Ocean Daughter”: sirens, goddesses, and water myths // StayHomeWriMo Day 5″

January 3, 2015

Yesterday was my birthday I turned nine. But it was the WORST DAY OF MY LIFE!!

After mommy and me got home from the groseri Shop the police were in our house and they said DADDY WAS DEAD. HE WAS IN A CAR CRASH

I AM CRYING, I LOVE DADDY SO MUCH

March 13, 2015

I just came back from Daddy’s funeral I’m still crying. Everyone thought they should give me Flowers BUT I JUST WANT THEM TO GO AWAY AND DADDY TO COME BACK!!!!!

I hate everyone……….

January 31, 2016

Sorry I haven’t wrote much diary. After Daddy died I kept crying all the time at least Isabel was there for me right???!!?!?! I miss him so much.

But now I’m ten and in fourth Grade and I have another friend, Lily. She’s very pretty!!!

April 28, 2016

Guess what??!!

I’m so mad at mommy. Today she brought another dude home for dinner and apparently they were together for over 2 months! I feel betrayed…… What about Daddy?!

December 27, 2016

This SUCKS. Mommy made her boyfriend Matt come to Christmas and it SUCKED!! I hate Matt, even though he gave me the premium American Girl Doll…

March 14, 2017

Dear diary, I’M ELEVEN! And something weird happened today. Matt and Mommy were here and Matt PROPOSED TO MOMMY. I’m honestly scared that Matt’s going to be my new dad!!

August 12, 2017

Okay, maybe Matt isn’t that bad I guess??? Yesterday was the wedding and I was the flower girl!! Matt even gave a speech about how marrying Mommy meant that he was marrying me too which didn’t really make sense but that’s okay, I get what he means!! Plus the food was VERY good.

I’m going to sixth grade this year 🙂 school starts next-next Monday, wish me luck!

January 4, 2018

Matt took me ice skating today for my twelfth birthday today!! It was a ton of fun and I brought along Isabel Jackson, Lily Delaney, and my new best friend, Alana Carmen Santiago. Matt even won us each stuffed animals from the arcade!

Yesterday was Daddy’s death anniversary so Mommy and I went to church and Matt was really nice about it! I still miss Daddy though.

June 2, 2018

Today is the last day of 6th grade and elementary school. I’m graduating from elementary school woooh! Time to head on to middle school and hopefully the drama doesn’t ruin MY LIFE 🙂

August 24, 2018

Hellooo, middle school!! Today was my first day and it was really scary but also fun! Isabel, Lily, and Alana and I all sit together during lunch but I don’t have classes with any of them except math with Lily. I hope I make new friends!!!

December 23, 2018

Tomorrow, Nana and Pops are coming over and so is Matt’s parents for the first time actually- I’m going to call them Grandma Rose and Grandpa Adam because that makes sense. I hope they give me a lot of presents LOL. Especially makeup because it makes me look much older 😉 plus I’m almost going to be 13 so Mom said I can go to the school dances and stuff.

March 8, 2019

Guys,,, this is a BIG DEAL! I have my first crush EVER. But I haven’t told anyone because… well, it’s kind of weird. But I have a crush on this really pretty girl in my science class, Lara Poliektova. She has white-blond hair and blue eyes and a beautiful smile ughhh (is there something wrong with me? why don’t I like guys like all of my friends?).

October 31, 2019

This is literally so fun!! Lily, Alana, Katie, and I went Trick-or-Treating together. Isabel moved to Iowa last month and I miss her a ton but I got a lot closer to Katie and she’s super nice too! Also, Lara and I are partners for an English project and (honestly I might die everytime I see her beautiful face ughh what is wrong with me) it’s amazing.

Also,,, I started high school which is why Lara and I aren’t in science together anymore but we do have English and PE together which is even better!

January 24, 2020

Okay, weird thing first: there’s this super creepy thing called the coronavirus that’s going and I’m super scared that Mom, Matt, or any of my friends are going to get it. High school has a ton of people, y’all, there’s a chance that any of us will get it.

But on a happier note, I found out that there’s nothing wrong with me for liking girls. It just means I’m lesbian so that’s great, phew. I still haven’t told anyone though…

March 3, 2020

SO. BIG BIG BIG NEWS. I ‘came out’ to my bestest friend in the world, Isabel, who I got closer with over Instagram over the past two months after not talking to her for like three months. Isabel was super nice and supportive and I literally love her so much (as a friend, I still have a crush on Lana after like three years).

The other big news: Lara moved into our apartment complex!! She’s two floors below me so we’re hanging out a lot more and it’s soo great (once again, I might die every time I see her though).

April 2, 2020

I live in Cherry, Nebraska where there aren’t that many coronavirus cases (only one for now) but the school is going to close in a week so that’s going to be hard on everyone. Meanwhile though, it was Lily and Alana’s birthdays over the past two months and that was a ton of fun!! Plus, Katie and I got ice cream at Yogool before we were recommended not to go outside.

April 9, 2020

School’s officially closed until April 22. Thankfully, Lana and I are apartment-mates-ish so we hang out almost every day. Let’s hope that this continues

April 13, 2020

Guys, THIS IS HUGE. Lana told me that she’s bisexual which means she likes girls and boys so… maybe she likes me back??! I came out to her too so that marks only two people in total including Isabel BUT I SERIOUSLY THINK SHE MIGHT LIKE ME.

April 20, 2020

We kissed. I’m just going to leave that there. (also I knOW, coronavirus, but honestly I kind of don’t care?? I JUST KISSED LANA POLIEKTAVA, MY CHILDHOOD CRUSH, PEACE OUT Y’ALL!)

Thanks for reading! I’d just like to add as a disclaimer that Paige was irresponsible by not taking COVID-19 warnings seriously but I needed it as a plot device XD so take precautions and don’t go around kissing people!! 😉

Did you enjoy this post? Have you ever written in a journaling format? Did I do a good job of showing how Paige grew up and changed over time?

“Kore”: a Greek goddess, pomegranates, and old crones // StayHomeWriMo Day 2

Hey everyone!

Welcome to Day Three of the StayHomeWriMo challenge. If you want to join, you can find the info here.

I prefer to write with prompts, so I usually search them up on the internet and use those XD.

Prompt: write a short story about a Greek god/goddess.

Normally Persephone would enjoy a warm summer day with her mother on land, frolicking through fields of tall golden grass, but today was different.

Today, she wanted to try something new.

Persephone usually didn’t take a mortal form to hang out with the normal people here; even though she was only sixteen, they all knew and loved her. She even had best friends, Attica and Icaria, the two most beautiful twins in the towns nearby. Their beauty paled in comparison to hers, she knew. Rumor had it that even Aphrodite was jealous of her.

But today, Persephone wanted to go somewhere without being recognized. Everyone knew her from her long, luscious brown curls, golden-brown skin, and bright violet eyes that shone from a mile away. She always had bright flowers woven into her hair in an intricate braid and flower crown, and her lavender dress clung to her body, hugging her curves.

Today, she wanted to be ordinary, to blend in. Continue reading ““Kore”: a Greek goddess, pomegranates, and old crones // StayHomeWriMo Day 2″

“Insufferable But Romantic”: With boss CEOs, fake dating, and a possible enemy-to-lover romance// StayHomeWriMo Day 2

Hey everyone!

Welcome to Day Two of #StayHomeWriMo. Once again, if anyone wants to join, here’s the official page.

By the way, yesterday’s April Fools prank didn’t go as planned 🤣. I was trying to replace text in my parents’ phones: I replaced ‘the’ and ‘a’ with some inside jokes and it should have been hilarious!

Sadly, Samsung has a preventive feature which shows the ‘replaced text’ as a suggestion, not an actual replacement, but it was still funny 😉

Now, on with the post!

After her parents’ divorce, Bea’s life became
different in many ways. But she can always look back at the list she keeps in
her green notebook to remember the things that will stay the same. The first
and most important: Mom and Dad will always love Bea, and each other.
When Dad tells Bea that he and his boyfriend,
Jesse, are getting married, Bea is thrilled. Bea loves Jesse, and when he and
Dad get married, she’ll finally (finally!) have what she’s always wanted–a sister. Even though she’s never met Jesse’s daughter, Sonia, Bea is sure that they’ll be “just like sisters anywhere.”
As the wedding day approaches, Bea will learn that making a new family brings questions, surprises, and joy.
