I know I've already posted this week but I just had to share this! So I'm sure you all know Valentines Day is coming up and I wanted to get a good gift for my boy friend since it was our first valentines day together. Any who I thought about what to get him for a longgggg time and finally I thought of something. Both of us love The Big Bang Theory so I googled Big Bang Theory shirts and so much came up! I looked through and found a shirt that had his two favorite colors and said Bazinga (which if you watch the show would know that's Sheldon's catch phrase). I also found a soft kitty, warm kitty t-shirt for myself(that's the song Sheldon's mother sang to him when he was little and now every time he is sick someone has to sing it to him) because it was buy one get one free. I got super lucky! So here are pictures of the two t-shirts
The T-Shirt for Scott (duh)
My Shirt (I lovee it)
So do you guys have any plans for Valentines Day? Anyone special? ;)
I couldn't think of a name for this post so i'm just going to call it a post about nothing..... So anyways this week has been really busy for me. Monday:2 hour delay because of snow so my school day was really messed up. Tuesday: Tons of homework because of the 2 hour delay and Girl Scouts meeting we are planing a dance/party for the younger scouts Wednesday:more homework and band rehearsal for the band my friend and I are starting. Thursday:Helped out my little sister girl scout troop and helped them bridge from a brownie to a Daisy. Her leader gave me 2 awesome notebooks and gel pens! I'll post pictures at the bottom. Friday:Had a really stupid pep rally about bullying I mean I feel strongly about bullying but the way they presented it was horrible! They let the step team host it and most of the people on the step team are bully's and they were up there crying into the microphone talking about how they had been bullied. This really upset me because one of my close friends was bullied last by them. Then after the pep rally everyone was crying because they were remembering times they had been bullied. It was a disaster! I mean I was bullied alot in 5th grade (Lily was one of the only two people who would talk to me) but I wasn't crying or caring on about it. At least I got to go to Scott's house with alot of friends or my day would have completely sucked.
First Picture: One of the 2 notebooks I got from my little sister's girl scout leader!
Secound Picture: A Hunger Games magazine that I got...and love!
Third Picture: Harry Potter UNO!!!!!!
Fourth Picture: The other notebook I got (my favorite)

OH MY COOKIES!!!!!! Okay so your probably like Caroline, what are you freaking out about. Well let me start from the beginning. So lately I have been OBSESSED with the Maximum Ride Series(there so good you must read them!) and I thought hmmm I wonder if there going to make a movie. So I pull up Google and search Maxium Ride Movie after checking out a few sites I found this one http://www.squidoo.com/maximum-ride-movie. So I'm reading through and I see these two names... Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Then I start to freak because if you guys don't know yet I have a firm hatred of Twilight...the movies, the books, and the actors epically Kristen Stewart. I don't think she could act to save her life. Now I'm sorry if I'm offending anyone who's a fan of Twilight this is just my opinion. Anyways I'm in love with the books and theses people would RUIN it. 1. There way to old to play Max and Fang 2. Kristen Stewart can't act 3. They are already in Twilight no need to ruin anymore movies! Okay I'm sorry for spazing out, I just can't even stand the thought of them playing Max and Fang and I'm pretty sure any of you who have read the books would agree with me. You guys can comment what you think. Any who since I'm rapping up this post I would just like to thank you guys soooooo much for the comments on the chapters for my book, Escape. I think all your comments are going to make my book flow better and just sound better. So again Thanks :D!
~Caroline (again sorry for spazing out I've been told I do that a lot :p)
Hey! Okay I thought about the comments I got on my first 2 chapters of my book and I rewrote the first chapter and I like it so much better! So thank you guys so much for your help! Okay here is the new chapter one! Enjoy!
I woke up with a start my head and heart pounding, my lungs screaming for air, It was just a dream I kept telling myself. It was just a dream. A dream I have had for the last 6 nights in a row, but still a dream. I just had to keep telling myself this if I was going to ever be able to sleep again.
I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes and ran to my desk. I unlocked the music box I had gotten from my mom (of coarse that was before she decided to leave me and my dad all by ourselves, when I was just a baby) and pulled out my journal. I felt the soft velvet cover and the worn out edges from years of use. This was my favorite journal, my dream journal.
I wrote down every detail of the dream I could remember. Of coarse it was the same as it was every night, I was at my school, there was a huge explosion, but for some reason I was walking toward the explosion instead of away from it. Carrie was behind my screaming my name. Then we both ran into the cafeteria and saw this monster thing. Then the dream ended, just like that every night, every detail the same. “Ergg!” I screamed. “What’s wrong with me!” I looked up to the mirror on my desk. “Okay Sam.” I told myself. “Pull yourself together.” I took a deep breath and got up to get ready for school.
I walked over slowly to my closet, opened the door, and grabbed whatever I could find. Which of coarse was a pair of skinny jeans, a t-shirt (blue of coarse), my converse, and my favorite sweatshirt, the yellow one with the blue hood. Then I put on the locket Carrie had gotten me last Christmas. It was a little silver heart that opened and inside Carrie had put my favorite picture of the two of us. The one of us at summer camp when we were 8, we were both wearing matching outfits like we had done everyday that summer. I smiled, grabbed my bag, my favorite book, and my journal, and slid down the stair well banister.
“Hey Dad, Bye Dad.” I said grabbing an apple and heading out the door. “Sam!” he said. I stopped in place and sighed “Yes Dad?” “Try and learn something today sweet.” he said kissing me on the forehead. “Come on Dad, do you want me to be late….again?” “No go on.” he said pushing me towards the door.
I grabbed the rusty handle bars of my bike. “God I need a new bike…badly.” “SAM!” Carrie screamed. Mumbling I said “Oh Hi Carrie.” “Sam what’s wrong now?” “Nothing Carrie I’m fine.” “No I know your not, were best friends remember. You can’t hide anything from me, okay? Now tell me what’s wrong you’ve been like this all week. All sad and depressed.” “Seriously Carrie, I’m fine.” “Whatever you say.” she said rolling her eyes. “Now come on I can’t be late again or Mrs. Black will have my head.”
We arrived at school as soon as the final bell rang. “Crap.” I mumbled under my breath. “Bye Carrie.” I said running quickly to my locker. “Come on, come on, come on. Open up you stupid worthless piece of crap. Oh come on why do I always get the worst locker in the whole school?!?” “Sam it’s looks like you late again.” “Mrs. Black it’s not my fault this time! It’s these cheap school lockers they NEVER open.” “Sam if you insist on missing class, maybe you should can stay after school for detention.”
Hiya! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years Eve. Well before I get into the post I just want to say yea this was going to be my NaNoWriMo, yes was, sadly I didn't come up with the idea for this story until mid November so of coarse I didn't have time to finish it. Anyways I continued to work on it over my Winter Break from school and can happily say I have made progress :D. Now I have decided to show you the first 2 chapters of the it to see what you all think, so I can know if I need to to approach it differently or what. Now I really want your HONEST critism, not all that omg that was wonderful crap, HONEST! Please comment what you think and hey maybe I'll post some more chapters if you like it. Now without further ado here's my story Escape. P.S PLEASE PLEASE DON'T STEAL MY IDEA!! P.S.S I know it starts out fast but trust me it slows down alot.
Introduction: Hi my name is well if want to be all formal and such it’s Samantha, but I swear if you ever call me Samantha I will blow your head off, literally. How you may ask yourself? Or you may even be laughing you head saying how can a 13 year old girl blow my head off. Well here is my insane, crazy, true story about how my life changed in a matter of hours and how I learned to survive with well my interesting new life. P.S This story is 100 percent true written by yours truly, Sam.
I woke up with a start my head and heart pounding, my lungs screaming for air, It was just a dream I kept telling myself. It was just a dream. A dream I have had for the last 6 nights in a row, but still a dream. I just had to keep telling myself this if I was going to ever be able to sleep again. I got up and ran to my desk, unlocked the bow, and pulled out my journal. I wrote down every detail of the dream it was the same as it was every night. I was at my school, there was a huge explosion, but for some reason I was walking toward the explosion instead of away from it. Carrie was behind my screaming my name. Then we both ran into the cafeteria and saw this monster thing. Then the dream ended, just like that every night, every detail the same. “Ergg!” I screamed. What’s wrong with me. I looked up to the mirror on my desk. “What’s wrong with me?” I asked in all most a whisper. “Okay Sam.” I told myself. “Pull yourself together.” As if he was on cue my Dad screamed what he screamed every morning. “SAM YOU BETTER BE DRESSED!” Then I answered with my regular response and got ready to go have yet another crappy day. I walked over slowly to my closet, opened the door, and grabbed whatever I could find. Then I grabbed my bag, my favorite book, and my journal. “Coming dad” I yelled and slid down the stair well banister. “Hey Dad, Bye Dad.” I said grabbing an apple and heading out the door. I could hear my Dad screaming at me as I walked out the door. He finally gave up and just sighed and said “At least try and learn something.” “Will do dad, will do” I said slamming the door behind me. I grabbed my bike and started the long to block journey to school already wishing the day was over. As I was riding I started thinking about the dreams I had been having lately and asking my self a million and one question. “Why am I having them?” “Do they mean something?” A tree knocked my out of my day dreams. “Ow!” I screamed. Then I heard the worst sound ever. The hissing of a tire deflating. “ No, No, NO!” I screamed. “I can’t be late again, or Mrs. Henry will kill me, then my dad will kill me.” I grabbed my bike and wheeled it as fast as I could toward school. I arrived at school as soon a bell rang. I quickly ran to my locked and was greeted by textbook, binders, and books all flying at my face. “Oh come on!” I yelled at top of my lungs. Then I was greeted by my “favorite” teacher in the whole school Mrs. Black. “Hi Mrs. Black” I murmured under my breath. “Did you just yell in my hallway Samantha?” Yes, I mumbled. As she walked away I started down at the detention slip in my hand and slammed my locker closed. My day was off to a great start as I sulked off to my first period class.
I slumped into my chair in homeroom trying to think of a way to tell my dad about detention. “Sam, Sam, SAMANTHA!” Mrs. Jones screamed. “What what oh” I exclaimed. “Do you mind coming back to earth and sharing the answer with us” my teacher said impatiently. “Um well 4” I answered. “Sigh no Samantha and I will see you after class.” Mrs. Jones said sadly. “Okay” I sighed. The rest of class period went by at a snail’s pace and when the clock finally got to the 10 Mrs. Jones called me up to the front. As I walked up ready to get another detention something strange and magical happened. I started to float! I looked down at the floor in disbelief and as quickly as it stated it stopped. Mrs. Jones looked and me and asked “What are you waiting for an invitation?” “Um did you see that?!?!” “See what Sam your not getting out this don’t make it harder” “ Okay okay I’m coming” I exclaimed as I slumped forward wondering if I had just imagined the whole thing. As I walked out of the room now I had not just one but two detention slips. Sigh the rest of the day passed without much excitement until lunch that is. As I walked to my locker to get my lunch I was meant by my best friend, Carrie. “Hi Carrie.” I said glumly. “What’s the matter.” she asked. In response I handed her the two detention slips. “OMG how did this happen?!?!” I was just about to start to tell her the story when there was a huge crash in the cafeteria and we were greeted by 100 hundred students and trying to get out at once. By the time Carrie and I got out of our trance it was to late we were stuck in a steeped of hundreds of kids all trying to get out the building at once. I had a funny feeling as I was getting pushed out of the building, like I had to go back, I had to do something. Before I knew what I was doing I was pushing through the crowd in the direction of the cafeteria. As I was pushing through the crowd the world seemed to be in slow motion. I arrived to the cafeteria and wasn’t sure what I saw. As I was staring at the strange person Carrie arrived next to me. “Sam we need to get out of here NOW!” Then she saw what I was staring at and her jaw dropped. “Sam what is it that” she stuttered. “I don’t know but it seams familiar.” I exclaimed. “FAMILIAR FAMILIAR SAM HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND!!!” “No Carrie” I said calmly “I haven’t. “Are you coming or not?” I asked . “WHAT?!?!?” Carrie screamed. “Are you coming or not?” I sighed. She opened her mouth to say something but I stopped her. “I don’t have time for this” I screamed at her as I ran toward the strange man. As I got closer my fear got bigger. When I was within 100 feet of the man he finally noticed me. “So much for the silent approach.” I muttered to myself. I was asking myself what to do next when savior arrived, Carrie. “Carrie Thank God you’re here!” I yelled as I hugged her. “Okay okay Sam so what’s the plan.” she asked hopefully. “Well um I sort of don’t have one.” I mumbled under my breath. “Sam what is the point of all this” she sighed. Before I could even answer the man was approaching us. “Ummm Carrie” I said quietly. “What Sam what!” She screamed. “OH MY GOD” She screamed at the top her lungs. We both looked at each other and started to run but it was to late the man was upon us. Then before our eyes he started to grow I mean grow 20 feet. We both screamed and the man bent down and lifted Carrie up. “CARRIE” I SCREAMEND “CARRIE” “ HELP ME SAM HELP ME!!” She shouted! I felt a tingling in my hands and I looked down and they were on fire! Carrie turned pale “Sam?” After a moment I knew what to do it was like my instincts were on steroids. I through flaming punch after flaming punch at him. He shrunk back to normal size and put Carrie down.
