Ehhh.....I don't what to call this

I've honestly got nothing to call this post. I did think of the Post of Randomness, buuuuuuuuut that sounded kinda cheesy to me.

So sorry for not posting lately! I know you've all been begging me to make more posts but I've just been slightly lazy again. My days have been....interesting.

Over the course of time that I haven't kept you informed, my older sis turned sixteen. But you wouldn't know how long it took me to find the right gift for her. First I look in movies, nothing there that I could really afford. Looked in t-shirts, but we couldn't find the right size. Looked in necklaces, found some nice ones but then I knew what she really needed. I got her a nice grownup watch. While there I kept pointing out things I wanted and that frustrated my mom, cuz she kept reminding me my birthday was months away and I had plenty of time to decide. It's never too early! And plus I also found a huge Hello Kitty alarm clock that I was going to buy with my Christmas money, but it wasn't there last time. It's always there when I'm shopping for someone other than me.

Sister(11)'s basketball games have started, which I'm usually not fond of going to them, but I made the exception. It's an all girls team and they won! Sis nearly got a shot in but that retarded buzzer went off. I brought my i-pod to try and drown the coaching parents, but that was failed. Can't say I didn't try. See, that's a reason I truly hate going to games. I feel like looking around and shouting "HEY, I came to watch my sister play, not have some loud adult yelling nonsense behind my back, so be quiet!".

If any of you have been getting snow, then you are quite lucky. I really want snow. All I've gotten is wind and rain, that's all REALLY YUCKY. My poor doggie had to be chained outside earlier when it was pouring outside and I had half a mind to go cover her with my umbrella. She looked so pitiful! So yeah, I ended up getting her inside after she was done eating her breakfast and now she owes me to behave.

So far I've spent my day TV....all the usual routine things. I was kind of behind in Bible because I couldn't find my CD. After tearing through my room, I finally found it mixed in my with one of my sister's school CDs. How it got there I don't know, but I'm really glad I found it.

I have been typing stories! My first Sarah Winchester've not really made progress. If you bring up the document I've placed it in, all you'll see is the title "The Amsterdam Diamond". Yes I'm so horrible! I'm at loss of how to begin it. I know I'm awesome at middle chapters. I'm working on endings! But I'm so horrible at beginning stories! That's always been my problem from the first day I started writing short stories and many unfinished novels. But I will succeed this time! I will!

Also on the subject of writing, I am planning on doing a historical-fiction as soon as my first mystery is done and out of the way. Not sure which time period, maybe the 18th century, the era of wigs and fancy-schmancy ballgowns. THAT has to be my favorite, after reading so many that take place there(aka The Charles Town Belles series).

Well, I think that's all my fingers can handle typing right now.

Describe me in one word...

I've been so lazy as to not posting. Well, let's just say the weather was absolutely disgusting yesterday and I didn't feel up to the task of informing you all of my life. Today I want a change of pace. I'll talk about my writing!
Did you even think I write stories? Of course I do, but so far, as of now, have been finished. I have get going just fine and then I get stuck. It happens every time, maybe because I don't have a firm enough plot? As the years have went by, I have realized mistakes I have made in my writing. Now I'm much better, and I'm going to try my hand at writing a series. And getting it published(hopefully!). I want to be an author so badly.

They are going to be mysteries, because as you may know already, I LOVE MYSTERIES. So that'll be easy. The next step is getting the main characters together. And I already did that!

My main character is a fourteen-year old girl named Sarah Winchester. She's a homeschooler, travels alot, and likes to read. She also has a Nancy Drew-type personality.

I promise, as soon as the first chapter of the first book is all done and written, I'll post it on another blog made specially for my writing.

To me, it seems only yesterday that 2011 started. Now I must try and survive another 2012? It's going to be interesting to see what happens for the next twelve months....and did I mention I turn 14 in June?!?! That's like...five months away. As always at the start of a new year and month, I start making plans. Let me see....four months til' the homeschool conference, five months til' my birthday(which I already mentioned! I have to wait so long!), three months til' Spring Break.

So how was Christmas for everyone? Mine was ok, I guess. BUT WAIT! I GOT AN AWESOME PRESENT AMONGST OTHERS!!!! LOOK!

(sorry for the bad quality but I took this with my webcam, mind you)

A pink i-pod shuffle! And I already have like...ten or something songs on it. This is my favorite out of all presents. Speaking of presents, let me show you the ENTERTAINMENT I GOT.

One of the movies I precisely asked for! Kind of disappointed it wasn't Beauty and the Beast, but I wanted this one just as much.

So, those are the only ones that interested me. Oh yeah, and I also got some perfume or something to smell good, and a snowglobe, and a pair of striped gloves from big brother. And my little sister got me an awesome purple compact mirror with a rainbow-leopard pattern on it. I guess I got my good share of items.

And as you also have noticed by now, I have renovated my blog. Still not done with the sidebar items, as I am still trying to find some blinkies and such to put there besides the ones I already have.
