WPC – Rare

This week’s weekly photo challenge is Rare (August 25th, 2016)

So you know,

I found out I like barbecuing stuff. Ever since my family went out and I tried Barbecuing, I loved it. And so, for some reason, in this week, we had 3 straight days of where I had to put the barbecue out and cook something. This was something rare to my family. We usually use the grill once a month in the summer and that’s usually during camping trips.

What’s also rare is me and my little brother getting along. He’s really annoying and I can’t stand him at all.

So, there’s not much to say about this topic, but hope you enjoyed it and come back for more, (I should really start posting these things on a non-Thursday day… I forgot to post it… Oops)

So. A question. Do you have a sibling? If so, younger or older and if you get along with them. If you don’t have a sibling, would you like one?

Anyways, vote, comment, and follow if you really enjoyed my content so far and would like to see more of it. Criticism is always welcome.

WPC – Fun!

This week’s weekly photo challenge is Fun! (August 17th, 2016)

The idea of Fun can be different for all people but for me, fun is usually composed of staying inside and curling up with a good book.

But this week, my mom dragged me outside and we went hiking on Mt.Baker. It was tiring to say the least. Like my other posts suggest, I’m an indoor person, and hiking is not really my slice of cake. But I can truly say that this was fun. Spending time with family, the wonderful views, and don’t forget the snow!

Maybe someday we can go out there again, to the (kinda) wilderness and have some old fashioned family bonding.

But not anytime soon though. After hiking from 2-7, My legs are pretty worn out to say the least, and I didn’t even have the proper shoes for this trip. Next weekend (or even next, next weekend) I’m just going to sit at home and (attempt) to read this french comic book.

So fun could be in all sorts of things, hiking, reading, dancing, camping, it’s really your choice what to enjoy.

So someday soon I implore (first time I used this word) you to get out there and do something different. If you’re an outdoorsy person, sit down and enjoy a good novel or two. If you’re an indoor person, get out there and go take a hike (or just walk around outside). Do something you don’t usually do, just for the sake of it. Oh ya, Just saying, don’t do anything dangerous even though I said  “Do something you don’t usually do”

A question for you all, “What type of person are you, and what do you enjoy doing?”

WPC- Morning

This week’s weekly photo challenge is Morning (August 11 2016)

So I took a picture of my bedside table. Since I’m more of a late owl than an early bird, my mornings are usually afternoons.

I stay up late at night to read books. Once at 2:00 in the morning I cleaned up my room because I wasn’t really tired.

WPC – Narrow

This week’s Weekly Photo Challange is Narrow. (August 3 2016)

So this weekend we went caving and I thought, What says ‘narrow’ more than caving? Well, a lot of things actually. The caves were actually pretty spacious but in some areas, (shown in the picture above) it can be a pretty tight squeeze.

I used my phone camera cause I thought that bringing my camera would be really inconvenient.

So like usual, tell me if you have any tips or tricks to taking pictures. Like, Comment, and Follow. Criticism is always welcome here

Peace Out

Weekly Photo Challange – The Cherry On Top

This week’s Weekly photo challenge is The Cherry on Top.

So my day was fabulous from a refreshing sleep to hiking in the woods to curling up with a good book. But what I think takes the cake is the fact that the sky was clear. I went outside and laid down on the grass. Even though I live in an urban place, the stars shone bright and the moon was very… glowy. It was perfect. A moment of silence and stillness in the otherwise busy rush of my life. Just letting the moment live itself and no voices to yell at me and such. I took the picture from inside because sadly my camera can’t take a picture of the night.

So the usual, tell me if you have any tips for taking pictures and such, any criticism is welcome here.

Weekly Photo Challenge

I haven’t done this in some time but here I go! This week’s theme was Details. The picture I took was when I was hiking somewhere with my family. This is a close-up of a spider web in a tree trunk. I dunno if this is close enough but this is what I have. If you have any suggestions or tips about taking photos in general, please comment below. I’m starting out in taking photos with an actual camera so I’m kinda new to this. So thanks for looking at this and have a great day!

 

 

The Snowy Dreamer – Chapter 1 – Eira

(- To Prologue                                                                                                                        To Chapter 2 -)

She walked in the gusty blizzard, the harsh wind whistling around her and stinging her face. For every step she took, the wind pushed her back two. Through hard work, she steadily made progress. She had to keep going. There was something… someone… somewhere she had to get to. She knew if she met that someone, her memories would come back. There was a shelter, a place to rest, a place to take refuge from the icy wind. But she resisted the temptation because if she went in, she was afraid that she would never come out.

She went past the comforting house, determined to reach her final destination, where ever that was. Determined to know about her family. If she even had one that is. She reached a brick wall, that stretched across the horizon. “Going around it seems impossible.” she thought to herself. “If not around then over.”

She started scaling the brick wall. She made it halfway when she noticed, the edge was further away than she thought…. No matter, she would spend however much time was needed to get over this wall. “Oh really?” a voice slid through the air, startling her. She loosened her grip on the stones, swivelling around, trying to find the source of the voice. She remembered that voice from somewhere, but she couldn’t quite figure out where.

Suddenly, someone shoved her off the wall. She quickly tried to grab hold of something. But it was too late. She was free falling into nothingness. The ground was gone, and so was everything else. She smiled emptily to herself as she fell down into blackness, “At least I won’t give them the satisfaction of hearing me scream…..”

Eira slowly opened her ice blue eyes and looked up at the ceiling of her igloo. Thinking back to the dream, she sighed, “This is the same dream I had yesterday, and the day before………. and for all eternity!! But… it was different this time… I usually collapse into the snow, now I reached a wall…. hopefully it means that things will change for the better.”

Saying this, she got up and looked around. The familiar surroundings greeted her eyes.She had lived here for 2 years already and over that time, she had gathered and built many things. Left of her there were three shelves. Two were filled with all sorts of random gizmos  and the other was empty. Across the shelves was a table littered with gears and other random things. In the middle, there was a worn book. In white lettering, across the cover, there were the words The Prism of Snow.

She walked outside of her igloo and started going for her morning jog around the island, checking her traps for enemies and animals in the process. She brought her staff just in case she was attacked by any minions along the way.

The minions were sent by the Overlord to recapture her. She was somehow pretty important to one of their plans. Whatever the plan was, she had no plan to help whatsoever in it. The minions though were pretty stupid so they usually fall into one of her pitfall traps while they were looking for Eira. She didn’t have to worry that much about it.

She muttered to herself the contents of the traps as she jogged around, “empty……………..empty……………………….minion.. Ugh…………….. rabbit……………. empty……………………unconscious ninja people…………….min-….. Wait what?!!?”
