Over the top? Maybe.
To those who claim the earth is overpopulated I agree in a few ways. In many ways us humans over populate the earth with opinions and in other ways, possibly less, we over populate with our being here.
Think, even if we aren't over populated now, we could very well be in a few years, unless the whole pandemic and the views of certain people kill us off. If we have more medications and less health issues later in life we could easily overpopulate. There are more than enough humans as it is, we are in the top five of the more populated species on earth, only bats and rodents out rank us. When you consider the way the life span on earth has increased over the century... well just think of where we will be in a couple of years.
I honestly have too many favorite reads and we could be here for hours if I decided to list them all so I'll only list the ones that I have read most recently or have gone back to reread a boatload of times.
Ranger's Apprentice and Brotherband: By John Flanagan. Two of my most favorite series, they are both by the same author and take place in the same world.
The Ascendance Series: By Jennifer A. Nielsen. I believe there to only be four book in this series but it is a very entertaining read full of twists and turns with entertaining characters.
Folk of the air: Holly Black. A three book series that I have read most recently and full of entertainment in the world of the Fae.
Court of Thorns and Roses series: Sarah J. Mas. I have reread this five book series too many times to count and I loved it.
Throne of Glass series: Sarah J. Mas. I also loved this series with many a plot twist and turns and and engaging series.
Crescent City Series: Sarah J. Mas. As well with her other two series this, currently two book, series held my attention all the way through.
Knight of the Realm: Jenifer Anne Davis. This series has three books and was very interesting to read.
Warriors: Erin Hunter. I haven't read this HUGE series in a while although it holds a place in my heart and on my book shelf, but it was enjoyable from start to finish... I believe it has over 60 books and is still growing with a large website dedicated to it and many fans.
Percy Jackson: Rick Riordan. This is a very popular series with a couple spin offs by the author and others.
Wings of Fire: Being another series that I haven't reread in a while, although it is dear to me and a fantastic series over all.
There are always road blocks in life, some of us have more than others and I know I have had quite a few. Some have been smaller, some have been bigger, and I can't remember all of the obstacles I have faced, but one has been my ability to get better at the sport I love, horseback riding.
With two of my brothers also being sports and the fact that my family isn't the richest in the world, horse's are also quite expensive, it means that I'm not able to ride horses more than one a week and I definitely can't get myself a horse. Which means that I can't excel and improve beyond the few chances that I get monthly.
I have had road blocks in school as well. Being that I am not great with confidence in asking questions to certain teachers, or even raising my hand to answer a question in certain classes, it is harder for me to thrive in those classes. I believe myself to not be as smart as some of the kids in certain classes which forces me into silence even if I don't understand a problem or answer.
Road blocks will always be there for me, I just hope I can eventually get past them.
One and the Same
I notice you sitting there,
But do you ever notice me?
The one that watches you,
The one that stands beside you,
Or am I just a brush of cold air,
A winters kiss?
I'm lost sometimes,
Just like you,
A drifting soul,
With little hope,
But big dreams.
I could be a child,
Or even a beloved pet,
I am you?
Something we all Have
The greatest gift to us,
Is clearly time,
It saves us when we are ruined,
It gives us joy,
And it gives us love,
Its the beat our hearts move to,
No one lasts forever,
But time is there,
It keeps us with our loved ones for as long as we need them,
And then it helps us let go,
When time ends for us all.
Maybe it Would be a Mistake
What would I do if I could unfreeze time?
I think I would do a lot of things,
I for one would end all the hate that humans bring,
I would use my power to bring some joy to those who need it,
And use it on others as I see fit.
I'm not perfect,
So I won't say that I would use it all for good,
I might use it for all the tricks on my brother that could be pulled,
Or even use it for a livelihood.
Would it perhaps be a mistake,
If anyone could break the wonderful thing we know as time?
Time is there to help us enjoy the things we know,
To keep our lives just perfect,
If we extend it, bad things could happen,
Or even someone else had the power,
What if it stopped altogether?
I have had a quite a few awkward moment in my life.. who hasn't?! One of the most memorable ones (the only one I can think of off the top of my head), is when I once mistaked someone else for my dad...
My dad is a firefighter you see and they were having this small party at his recruit school and I was there with my mom and brothers. I saw someone who looked exactly like my dad from behind and I ran up to him went to hold his hand.. until I saw It wasn't my dad. It has been awkward running into him since.
Another awkward time was when I was standing at the bus stop for school and all the girls kept giving me compliments... it was so weird. They kept saying my hair was amazing, that I had a great nose, and pretty eyes. They all said I always smell good... like what?! I put on sunglasses once standing there and this boy said I looked like a super model... I mean why... whyyyyyy!
Who am I Inside?
I believe myself to be someone who can make my friends laugh, but can also comfort them when they need it. I am someone who doesn't like bullies, especially when they are mean towards my friends, then it gets ugly. I am loyal, I am kind, but I am also fierce in my own way.
I have been told I am great at helping my friends when they aren't feeling well, when something bad happens, I have also been told that I can be stubborn and a bit too shy. I sometimes wonder how my younger brother is so brave... I'm definitely not.
But most of all, I want to be a person who goes farther than most, who can be noticed by not for what I am, but for who I am. I want to show everyone that the world can have compromise... Eventually.
Writing is a Part of Me
To answer the first question I began to write, I mean actually wrote stories, around 6 or seven years ago, when my English teacher provided entertaining prompts and a fantastic atmosphere for learning. I started to write stories to read to the class, and now I have actually written a 31 chapter book, I hope to publish it. Writing was never really important to me until that year, before it was just there. Now it is all around.
Writing gives me a way to leave the real world for a time, to live in a place of fictional characters of my own design. It gives me a comforting place to dump my thoughts without being judged for it. Although it also gives me the joy of seeing other people read my writing and finding it magnificent.
My ultimate goal in writing is to provide a space for other people to get away from the world like I do, and to provide them with a chance to expand their own imaginations. Writing also provided a joy for me, it should for other people too.
Hello there! Ich heisse kjbaum!
I have been doing prose for almost a year now and find it a very enjoyable website. I have been writing for much longer and it is something that brings me a ton of joy. I hope to publish a book one day, but until then...
I am a loyal friend, I will protect my friends as long as they need me. I am someone who wants to change the world for the better, but hasn't had a chance yet so instead I create speeches and share them with the bathroom mirror. I am someone who loves country music through and through, it is what I was raised on. I am someone who loves horses and my family, as well as reading, writing, drawing, and dogs. I am someone who is a rule follower and is not very daring. I am someone who keeps to my inner group of friends and is somewhat shy. But on top of everything I consider myself a good person, smart, caring, loyal, someone who floats in the world of books, and many other things. I like to joke around with my friends.
I hope to one day become a veterinarian and a well known author, but also the owner of horses in the meantime. (If you haven't been able to tell at this point, I loves horses.) I also hope to one day be able to speak multiple languages. I've been practicing my German and Spanish :).
Anyways, freut mich, sie kennenzulernen. Guten tag!
