Worth. I question the worth of countless nights bent over a laptop, a steaming mug of tea in one hand and the other returning my glasses to their determined place instead of sliding down my nose.
I question the worth of ink-stained hands, sparks of sudden, uncontrollably brilliant flow of creativity;
The words flowing like water into my mouth after a long, scorching summer afternoon in my hometown, bringing sweet relief.
I question the worth of writing beautiful words, pouring my heart into scrolling, detailed words on a page and having other people delve into it, feeling my journey.
I question the worth of myself; my talent. Never have I ever questioned a person who decides to be an author;
Because it is one of the most worthy professions someone could take up.
For every critic, there is praise, and for every flop, success.
It gives me hope for a dream that is most likely fruitless, but I will pursue any way.
The People I encounter on Omegle.Today I was on Omegle, and I went to spy mode first. In place of a question I put the following: "I know this isn't a question, but I just wanted to let you know that you're beautiful and I love you. Don't forget that there's someone out there who cares."
I was very excited to see how happy and warm people felt.
The response I got was very upsetting.
In the span of about, let's say five minutes, I had people call me gay, a hippy, a pedo, and stupid.
I only got one or two positive responses out of the whole thing.
It made me feel really horrible, because all I wanted to do was make the world a little brighter, and all I got was hate.
Then, feeling discouraged, I went to regular chat mode to try and feel better. What happened made me very happy.
I had the pleasure of talking to a well-mannered, young Algerian male who treated me with wonderful respect.
When he told me where he lived, I asked him if he liked it and he said no. When I asked him why, he said he didn't know. Well, I wasn't g
Tea and Tattered Pages: PrologueTea and Tattered Pages
By: Alexandra Stinson
Some days I wonder when I got to be so lucky. It certainly wasn't always this way. Perhaps it started when I bought that first flat, or maybe the first time I entered that magnificent old bookshop. It could have been the first time I met him; that seemed likely. These are the types of things I like to ponder on a day such as this, whilst staring out my window at the stormy sky, cuddling up with a classic novel and sipping my cup of Peppermint tea.
To some this might seem to be a bit of a drab routine, but I find it splendid. I'd like to think my companions- Arthur and Sherlock- would find it in their hearts to agree. I could be so terribly dull that I cannot detect any of their discomfort, but if I'm right they fancy it just as much as I do. Even if they do think of it with abhorrence, neither really has the place to tell me so. I put up with Arthur's weekly visits to the Tea E
New Chatroom RulesSince I do, in fact, admin our lovely little chatroom, I've changed some things and added some new rules. Don't worry, it's nothing horrible. They're more like guidelines, but still guys, be courteous and try to follow them. Also, No one can change founder status but me. I will list the people who are founders here.
Now, the rules.
1. No politics in conversation.
2. No religion in conversation.
3. Please, no putdowns. We're all really good friends, do we have to hurt each other?
4. Kylee, this one's for you: Try not to swear so much, k? You don't have to stop, but don't go around using the f-bomb in every other sentence. Thanks.|
5. No talking about military history unless it directly relates to Hetalia.
That's it. Told you! It's not bad at all.
SO, um..Please Read This.You guys are gonna hate me so much....
well, actually, no you won't. You will however be upset. So, within the next few days I will make an announcement that'll probably catch a few of you off guard. Some of you will know earlier, through phone calls and stuff but this is a warning just to kind of prepare yourself. Remember, I love you all very very much and you are wonderful friends. <3
Army Surplus Stores and FemininitySo, my Student Ministry camp is about 4 or so days away. One of our theme nights is "The Hunter Games" in which we have to dress like a warrior of some sort. Camo and army stuff instantly popped into my head, so we went shopping at the nearest Army surplus store, thinking we could find something there. So, me being who I am, I was wearing star drop earrings, a matching necklace, a lacy tank top, a white denim jacket, a floral print skirt and some wedges. I thought nothing of it. If they didn't like my outfit, I didn't care. So I waltz in, browse a little bit, and then move towards the back of the store to see my parents real quick. There's a guy back there, looking at some guns. He couldn't be more than 20, I'd imagine. Looked like he had just come back from a draft. He takes one look at me, up and down and says "Lemme guess. Going to an Army themed party?" with kind of a condescending tone to his voice. Now, y'all know me well enough to tell that I'm no delicate flower, and his statem
My Totally Amazing Ramble-Letter to PrussiaDear Mr. Prussia,
The photo above is you. I figured since we've been calling you Prussia for what, like half a year now?; I'd actually bother to show you a picture. So there he is. Prussia and all his awesome glory graces this page. Prussia is an albino. Therefore he has super cool white hair and red eyes. Your hair is cool too, but not as awesome as Prussia's. Keseseseses~ (That, right there is Prussia's signature laugh.) This letter/picture accompaniment features an over usage of the name "Prussia" but that's okay. It just makes it more awesome. That is exactly why we call you Prussia, Monsieur. We (meaning pretty much every kid you teach but mainly France, Sweden and I) think you are as awesome as Prussia and that is a difficult feat to achieve. Congratulations about your superior status to like every teacher in the school, even the amazing leprechaun that teaches sixth grade World History and also makes the top ten list. (Except your off weeks where you trade off and I like Ms. Nov
Canada, Maple & DramaHi guys! Just got back from my cruise and it was AH-MAZ-ING. Canada is one of my new favorite places. It also made me realize how very obsessed I am with maple. Nova Scotia is such a beautiful place, and I hope all of you get the opportunity to visit, even if it's just once. I got the best maple taffy I have ever eaten there. <3 My life has been a little dramatic lately, so I apologize if I haven't stayed in touch much. Too many emotional wounds and such, yadda, etc. Good news is that life is getting back on track and we're finally settling in to our new home. I miss you guys immensely. It's lonely up here! Please, feel free to start up a chat or something. I'd really appreciate it. Love you all so much (Except for you, Nick- but we already had that conversation) and hope to see you soon. I will be in town sometime between now and Labor Day, btw. I'll have to organize something- I'll keep you updated on any plans.
Over and out,
Heh. lol. We all saw that one from a mile away.Tony Stark / Iron Man

À partir daujourdhui, tu tappelleras Mathieu en honneur dun évangéliste catholique, ainsi que pour le Saint Pape
Quest-ce que ça veut dire?
Don de Dieu
Matthew woke with a jolt, flat on his back. He had just dreamt an event that seemed to have happened a thousand years ago. He groped in the dark for his glasses, and soon realized a single tear was rolling lazily down his right cheek. He raised his hand to greet the falling drop of salt into his palm, right before more of them joined in. Matthew lurc
A Guide to Writing DialogueWhat is dialogue, exactly? The definition from Merriam-Webster’s dictionary was several lines long, so I shall summarize it in a short sentence for the sake of the readers; it’s the writing that illustrates conversations between two or more characters in a story. We read and hear it all around us, but creating it in your own work can be a challenge. However, if you find dialogue an obstacle in your writing, then don’t push the panic button. In this tutorial, you’ll find by analyzing what dialogue can do and how to use it, you can turn your greatest fear into your greatest ally in your story.
What dialogue is
Like I’ve asserted before, dialogue is basically what the characters are saying to each other. It can be found in multiple mediums such as books, movies, comics, video games, etc. We even engage in dialogue daily without even thinking. When you talk to your best friend, a co-worker, or even your dog, you create dialogue. It’s exchang
