Gratefulness. Appreciation. Whatever you want to call it. Thankfulness. Do you say things you’re thankful for on Thanksgiving? That’s gratefulness. Now you just have to continue doing that every day of the year . . . just kidding. You don’t have to do that. Maybe that can be your New Year’s Resolution, even. Nobody ever keeps…[Read more]
I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry about . . . everything. *huggles*
*smacks head* For some reason, I got it in my head that, on the post, I asked you if you wanted to talk about it, and the “. . . yeah” was to that question. *shakes head*
So. Do you want to talk about it?
Yup. *sighs* This is working well. Comment when you’re on, I’ll probably be on. Maybe.
Yup. Here’s the link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Tus9FjoW3YD07sAef-p_rtkrKGB6z9mDnOw7YZg3yJI/edit
Liv, do not go on.
Do you want to talk?
@everyone I missed
Hello! You guys are the people here that I consider my friends, many of which I haven’t talked to in a while. Because of…[Read more]
Yay, you’re back! Life’s been pretty…fine, I guess. Coding classes are the worst, school’s okay, but still pretty boring. Posted piano solo with a bajillion mistakes on youtube for a stupid recital.
So, how’ve you been?
Coding sounds cool, I agree with the school, and oof.
I’ve been good. I got super behind on school, but I’ve gotten mostly caught up, so that feels nice.
Hiiii! I’m good. I did get outed though-
my dad read my emails about coming out. my parents are supportive of course, but i was still outed.
Hi. I am good.
JK!!!!! Hello!!!!!!!!! *Hugs you* Soooooo my birthday is next Monday, I have a volleyball tournament this Saturday, and I GOT ASKED TO BE REPRESENTED BY AN AGENT!!!! How are you? :)))
i have a cat and i’m potentially getting merch from my favorite youtuber ever also i found an old board game form 1993 that my stepdad had and it’s murder cases and yes i am great actually!
OOH ALSO, I MIGHT MEET FIN WOLFHARD ON MY BIRTHDAY https://fanmio.com/products/meet-finn-wolfhard-from-stranger-things-and-it
*hugs* hey there, I missed you.
I’m seriously exhausted. School is.. stressful, to put it mildly. The mental strain of going to school, even online, during a pandemic is enormous. It’s wearing on all of us.
I get my wisdom teeth out on Wednesday, so wish me luck! *shares milkshake* maybe I’ll host an ice cream party to celebrate.
BTS BE drops…[Read more]
*hugs back* Missed you too.
Yeah, school’s annoying. *shakes head* Pandemic’s annoying too.
Ooh, yum, ice cream.
I’ve been good! Figuring out a few ways not to procrastinate. That’s why I became more active on here.
Oh, yeah, I should post some more poems!
Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry! I knew I would forget people. *shakes head at myself* I’m so so sorry.
How are you?
AWW no don’t feel bad, i’m not too bad, I just kind of got my heart broken but at least now i have good ideas for a new song, also i have 72 blimen word test that i had to learn in a day, time to fail. Anway how are you?
“You just kind of got your heart broken” *shakes head* That’s awesome that you have an idea for a song, though. You write songs?
That sounds fun.
I’m good! Doing better with homework. I’m not really behind anymore, but I’m also not really ahead.
yup i write songs, ive written about 11 so far, some good, most terrible but we move. i hateeeee homeworkkkkkkk i have 5 pieces to do but I am of course procrastinating
Thanks for considering me your friend! *hugs you guys*
I’m currently stressed, my procrastination really caught up with me and now have 1 overdue project and one that is due today. School is very stressful, and I never knew quarantine could be this exhausting even as an introvert. Also I want to sleep more. I think my Thanksgiving break would just…[Read more]
Also @/raynaevil809 and I are starting an art club, here’s the google classroom link if you want to join:
*hugs back* School’s very bleh. Yes, sleep. Sleep is good.
That sounds fun. And that’s cool!
Reading’s always great.
*thanks you and eats some snacks*
bleh is a great word to describe it. And how are you doing? Did anyone read the Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes? I’m not very far into it but it’s interesting so far
I read that a while ago! It’s kind of . . . strange, but also good. In its own way.
I am!! Well, I HAVE it, I was gonna read it yesterday… but then I read school for good and evil instead (just like always) Is it good?
Perseverance. I have a problem with this myself, as Penelope probably knows. I always post my section on Saturday night without fail – except for on those nights where first I have to scroll through my mentions to find the topic and ship, and then I have to come up with some ideas, and then I have to actually write it, and so I don’t feel…[Read more]
Hello all! Today we will be having… *drum roll, please!* a READ-A-THON! Yes, this is going to be awesome. Red School came out a few weeks ago, but we’re asked you to hold off so we could do it together! This. Is. Going. To. Rule. If you didn’t pre-order Red School, or already read it, feel free to pick up ANY book, and read along, telling us the f…[Read more]
First of all, I need to write a poem to get my anger out.
Click, Click, Click
Click, Click, Click
Click, Click, Click.
I’M GONNA STAPLE YOUR FACE TO THE WALL FKGRTNJEHKGTFCJH
See latest update for further info.
I’ve never read Red School, so I’m gonna wait for more people to show up.
You don’t have to have read it, today’s about reading it!
Or reading Red School if you’re like me and you still haven’t read that and also forgot to order Red School.
If you don’t have either, you can either skip today or read a different book.
Did that help?
(Also I love your poem.)
I can’t do it cuz i will be in school but i will def share kotlc lines later
I don’t have Red Queen bc I’m waiting to see what other people thought of it. Plus I’ve seen the description and it doesn’t sound like my thing tbh. Instead I am reading: Moonlocket! It’s an OK book. I prefer SGE so I’ll probably change to that half way through lol
“there’s nothing more natural than dying from a knife to the neck. what would be unnatural is if he survived”
“in my defence, you are a frightfully boring person, so I don’t really think I can be blamed for my attention wandering”
“I’m kind of in between relationships at the moment”
“oh! congratulations! your mother must be so proud. oh wait – she…[Read more]
There was no way you could keep me from reading red school for that long so I’m sharing my favorite Six of Crows quote and when I get to it I’ll find a quote from the book I actually just finished.
“Kaz replied with a time-saving gesture that relied heavily on his middle—finger and disappeared belowdecks.”
Oki, I have a funny bit i just wanna share from the second hp movie, and then ill do a kotlc quote.
*Hermione runs into the dining hall after being un-parralized, hugs harry, moves to hug ron, then ends up awkwardly shaking his hand*
And kotlc quotes: “Stina unleashed a string of words that would make Ro proud.”

“Can’t fight in person?
We can videoconference
I’ll kill you online.”
Oh it’s one of the chapter haikus from Tower of Nero, so, Apollo, I guess.
Just finished it.
thought it was poorly written for Riordan
Actually, Dov, agreed. The Trials of Apollo was easily his worst work. It wasn’t terrible, I was just expecting more.
Yeah true. I personally really like ToA. It wasn’t terrible and there were some good character development going on. But it isn’t his best work either. Interesting… perhaps he is going through burnout or didn’t put in as much effort as some of his earlier work.
I’ve only read the greek gods series from him, and imo the original series is the worst because i think he definitely matured as a writer since the first arc. heroes of olympus is the best though because of leo, nico, hazel and frank. i don’t make the rules.
Leo!!!! I didn’t like Jason much in HoO but i feel like he became a better character in Trials of Apollo for the one book he was in.
I think he also matured in ToA, that scene with Jason in the Burning Maze really showed that to me. The first series is very linear and somewhat formulaic, but it was satisfying to read and had some good character moments as well. HoO is a mixed bag for me, as I really like the characters but the ending wasn’t quite there. Also with the 7 povs…[Read more]
I read the first ToA and it was really fun to read but I’ve been so busy that I can’t read the second one yet even though I’ve got all of the first four.
Oh well then I think Jason turns out to be so much more significant after he died than before. Which is… kinda sad.
Have you ever heard of something called a growth mindset? If you have, I bet you just think of it as something you do in school. A teacher thing. But really? It can be super important in your life. A growth mindset is what says that you can be smarter, you can be better, you can be great.
A growth mindset is basically…[Read more]
Today is the day you have been waiting for! (Maybe.) We will announce the winners of the contest!
*and more drumroll*
*plus a bit more . . . *
And . . .
All your poems were super good and we don’t want to rank them, so you all get first place. I know that’s not very exciting, but we love all of them. Thank you for sha…[Read more]
Well I was thinking of posting poetry slams and stuff more often cause we ruled that on Wednesday, (Tuesday was it?)
Yeah! And…. what if we shared our favorite piece of poetry, writer, story, or fanfic like once a month? idk that’s probably a terrible idea XD
Gummivear, it’s not, but I was thinking more than once a month. Yeah, weekly sounds fun. Or even with a nano club, we could each take turns and do DAILy.
And. It. Is. ANOTHER. CONTESTTTTTTT. Today, we will be entering… A POETRY CONTEST. Usual rules that apply to the others, and details will be on the doc. Remember, EVERYONE can write poetry. All you have to do is try. String a few words together- whatever feels right, and it’s called poetry.
Topic can be anything.
24 lines max, haiku min…[Read more]
Hm, I’ll do a happy one and a sad one for balance.
WE STAY ASHORE
The sun rises glowing, shining, and gold,
As it always has since the days of old.
While the sky fades pink, yellow and red,
An ark appears in a sea unsaid.
The eastern sky, robin’s egg blue,
Opens up as the mourning dove flew.
As the dove reaches a homeland, lush and green,
It flies…[Read more]
WE walk hand in hand past all the the trees
WE talk for hours and hours.
WE stay behind, “Just leave us be”
WE walk back to the towers.
WE listen to songs from OUR favourite playlist
WE dance with the tune
WE sing along to all the lyrics
WE stay up and look at the moon.
But ‘WE’ becomes ‘I’ as we drift apart
Drift away from memories
I still…[Read more]
The Winter Falls down and the Summer Springs up.
The curtains are closed but the playbills are loved.
The drama is gone, yet still lives on.
The passion will stay, and wait for another day.
Watching my Little Girl Grow Up
My name is Virginia Dare and I was killed by a hostile tribe of American Indians after leaving Roanoke.
It’s all part of the curse, you see. Perhaps I shouldn’t have taken it.
My name is Abigail Sonclair and I died in the first winter at Plymouth Colony.
My name is Nathan Hale and I was hanged as a Rev…[Read more]
Whoah. I– I just have no words for how insightful that was
Don’t tell me that life is happy,
Because right now I feel pretty sad.
Don’t tell me that it gets better, easier,
Because all I know right now is that it is hard.
Don’t tell me lies disguised as truths.
And don’t tell me facts that are actually fibs.
Just give me some real honesty
And say that life ***** right now because it really…[Read more]
Oh, sorry. When we wrote these, we were going to have a doc, but doc links aren’t allowed anymore, so the rules are in the post. Sorry for the confusion!
who is the winner? i wanna know (even though i probs didn’t win)
Do What Makes You Happy
I know some of you are thinking, “Well, what about homework? Is she telling us not to do our homework! Yes!” No. That is not what this is about. This is about career. This is about your future. This is about who you want to be. If you don’t do what you want to do, if you don’t act the way you want to act, if you aren’t true…[Read more]
