one of a kind

WE TRY
TO SHAPE OURSELVES
INTO THE MOLD
SET BY SOCIETY
BUT
I DONT WANT TO BE
A DOLL
MADE THOUSANDS AT A TIME
UNDERPRICED
AND OVERLOVED
SITTING ON A STORE SHELF
I WANT
TO BE ORIGINAL
HANDMADE
BECAUSE WE PAY MORE FOR THOSE, RIGHT?

Inspired by a store’s display of dolls

 

tell me in the comments if you like my poem! i do hope that you guys like it.

most expensive book? most inexpensive?

inexpensive: my black beauty book that was FREE (because i am cheap/broke) from my cousin and also I LOVE THAT BOOK SO GO READ IT. NOW. *waits*

expensive: i do not know. uh… probably the harry potter series because there’s EIGHT of them in hardcover and good condition. BUT WHO CAN WRITE 8 LIKE 500 PAGE BOOKS PLUS SPINOFFS TELL ME YOUR SECRETS.

what author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

i don’t really have any… i rarely pay attention to author names cause i read so much and only look if i really like the book.

guilty pleasure read?

okay. well. there have been a lot of these. so in third grade i shamelessly read lunch money about sixteen times in a row. no joke. and then i used to read the harry potter books alot at 10. now i have been re-reading brown girl dreaming and i love it so so so much.

what book do you talk about to make it sound like you know all the secrets?

hm… any book with big Fancy Words so I sound Smart like all the Intelligent Readers. so like Shakespeare cause he has all the Respect and just say a few quotes and your set for Life.

what attributes do you find attractive in a character?

i dunno. i dont really have fictional crushes from books. but if they’re sarcastic, as i am, that definitely helps!

what book would you like as a gift if you are broke like me? 

i’d say…  Locomotion by Jaqueline Woodson because I’ve heard it is similar to brown girl dreaming and as you know I LOVE THAT BOOK. or maybe Heartless by Marissa Meyer because Queens are Cool.

TWO amazing nanowrimo events! woot woot!

NaPoWriMo & Camp NaNo

i figured for NaPoWriMo i could share a poem. maybe? actually, of course! everyone wants to read my wonderful writing. 😀


without water (92, 08, 10)

water is 92% of me,
.92 parts of me.
92/100ths of me.

without water,
we’re 8% of our former selves,
only .08 parts of us,
8/100ths what we were;

with less than 10% left of me,
<.10 parts of me,
<10/100ths of me-

i am an empty glass.

what kind of person is that?


also, how could i forget? APRIL FOOLS!

do you know who your going to prank? got any ideas? cause im fresh out. ive been told im not subtle enough… oops?

xoxo,

april ❤
