Dear Whoever Still Reads My Blog Even Though I Frequently Vanish From It,               July 29th, 2012

I won’t pretend to have a really good reason to justify my disappearing acts but I have a reason- Wordpress for some reason wouldn’t let me sign in successfully to my account. Therefore, I couldn’t really post as much as I wanted to. Anywho, enough excuses let’s move on.

I recently found a new blog to follow through the Freshly Pressed section of WordPress. It’s called Hayley Made: http://hayleymade.wordpress.com/  And even for having just 5 posts to start off with, I think it’s off to a really amazing start. It’s a pretty awesome blog. I like it a lot. So I followed it. I actually took it upon myself to make one of the things on the blog, a 3 dimensional letter made of newspaper. It looks way cooler than it sounds, trust me. It’s pretty amazing. Time consuming, but cool nonetheless.

There is a reason I mentioned the aforementioned blog, it inspired me. I have always liked to think of myself as a semi-artistic person. Can I draw? No. Can I paint? No. Can I take amazing pictures? Very rarely, but mostly not. I can write, sorta. That counts as an art right? Anywho, I like crafts, and make old junk into something cool, pretty, or usable. That makes me crafty I suppose, not so artistic. Whatever. The blog above me though has seriously inspired me. I don’t get that feeling a lot. However when I normally do, I always seem to not do anything at all with that inspiration. It makes me feel good. It gives me ideas but very rarely do I ever put it to work and USE it for something. Typically I say “when I’m older” or “when I’m less busy” or just “that’s a really amazing idea that’s touched me, I wish I could do something like that”. But never, ever, except very rarely, do I ever DOsomething with that inspiration. That is why I’ve been inspired enough by this blog that in the last 8 days of summer I have left, to start something, something cool, something I take pride in and that inspire someone else. I’m going to be doing my own crafts, my own D.I.Y.’s, my own crafty blog. Now, I already have two blogs: this one and another one I won’t mention by name. Both are WordPress blogs mostly because WordPress is pretty simple and basic and I understand how to use it, most of the basic stuff anyway. I thought about venturing out of the WordPress site on this one though just because it’s a hassle to sign in and out of my various accounts. However, I’m convinced that WordPress is the best blogging site, probably because I’ve never used anything different. For that reason, I’m staying with WordPress for my 3 accounts and 3 blogs. It’s probably not smart starting a new blog on a whim. Right before the busiest, and sometimes downright crazy, time of my life starts, but I’m doing it. God, so help me. I’m going to try to post as much as I can. Hopefully a lot more frequently then I have been lately. I’m not going to say I’m going to “try” anything else like making weekly posts to all 3 of the blogs because then I feel like I’m going to make a ton of might be bogus promises to a few random strangers who for some reason read this blog.

This is my writing blog mostly. It’s also my personal blog. HA! Personal. Blog. Posted. Online. For. The. World. To. See. HA! The irony! I couldn’t contain myself for a moment there. Onto more current things, I’m going to be joining NaNo once more but for something I’ve never done with them before… Camp NaNo. Never have I done Camp NaNo. So I’m figuratively taking a stab at it in August.  A new blog, a 50,000 word novel, and a new school. All in a month. If I’m not dead or completely sleep deprived by the end of the month it’ll be a miracle. The novel I plan on writing in August will probably be the exact same as my novel for November for my actual NaNoWriMo novel but rewritten and edited to bits. That’s what I’ll be doing in November and hopefully in December it’ll be ready to be published via CreateSpace.

The two blogs I have now I don’t normally mention each other on the other. Like I don’t advertise -let’s call it Blog #2- Blog #2 on eshysletters and I don’t try to get Blog #2’s followers to follow eshysletters. I just don’t like it. I believe people should follows blogs for the actual blog and they like the content, theme or whatever. Not just because they all have the same author/creator person. So after this I won’t mention the other 2 blogs on here. Even though I didn’t mention their names, or anything specific about them, please shoot me an email or comment if you’d like to know about them and then I’ll give you the links. Not advertising.

It’s been catching you guys up on my blog. I apologize for such a cut and dry post. Really I do. I’m really quite ashamed of myself. I call myself a writer and this is all I can give you, not cool, not acceptable. But it’s all my tired brain can think of at 3am and I thought you needed a post. So I suppose you’ll have to accept it or follow a different blog. Sorry, I really am. I hope you still stay on as a subscriber. I’m not going to promise it’s going to get better, but hopefully my posts will become a little less boring.

-with much love and even more apologies, eshy,

Dear Whoever Knows What A Meme Is (’cause I Sure Don’t),                                    May 5th, 2012

I didn’t feel like putting up quotes about memes until I know exactly what a meme is. Apparently, as WordPress and my email inform me, I have been tagged in one by my good friend, Faith(http://blueepicgeek.wordpress.com/).

THE RULES:

  • You must post the rules.
  • Post 11 facts about yourself on the blog post.
  • Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create 11 new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
  • Tag 11 bloggers or if you want, fewer. Include their name and a link to their blog.
  • Tell the people that you have tagged that you’ve done so.

Facts About Myself:

  1. I am eshy.
  2. I am a female.
  3. I reside inside of the United States of America.
  4. I have a total of 15 pets that are just mine including: 2 dogs(Rocky & Freckles), 4 ducks(Charlie, Undecided, Lucy, and Trouble), and 9 chickens who aren’t named.
  5. I hate the new Google.
  6. I love to play sports which include: soccer(main), volleyball, cross country, and softball.
  7. I am in love with music.
  8. A lot of people misunderstand me.
  9. I go to counseling(surprise surprise).
  10. I love my family over everything.
  11. I only have a few friends.

Faith’s Questions For Me:

  1. What is your favorite color (and shade) and why? Green. I don’t know the specific shade but I can pick it out. Because ever since I found out it was my brother’s- it’s been mine.
  2. What was your favorite thing that happened this week? Yesterday, when I finally decided what to get my sister for her birthday and graduation presents.
  3. What is your favorite holiday and why?I don’t really have a favorite holiday to be honest. But I suppose my top 3 are Thanksgiving(because our generation needs to learn to be grateful for what we have instead of grumbling about what we don’t.), Christmas(the day recognized as Christ’s birth, also a time of family and fellowship), and Halloween(the one day a year where you don’t have to be yourself. You can put on a mask and be someone else and that’s just perfectly fine. You get ONE day out of a whole year to pretend to be someone else and to escape reality).
  4. Do you like school? Why or why not? No. Not my particular one at least. I don’t learn anything from it and a lot of the teachers nowadays are clueless to their subjects they teach.
  5. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? And why? Italy. Because I’d like to meet some other descendents of my ancestors and study the culture of such a beautiful place. And see that beauty for myself.
  6. What is your most favorite outfit to wear? Going in? Staying in? Going out I’d say a clean pair of jeans. A top(depends on the occasion, it’ll either be a tshirt or a button up or a tank), with a pair of Converse more than likely. Staying in it’s a pair of grease-stained flair jeans in the lightest blue wash, with a ripped up tshirt and barefoot or Chucks again.
  7. Favorite type of music? Why? Country. It’s what I grew up on. I love the stories they tell. The fact that you can relate their stories to yours. The emotion they carry is beautiful.
  8.  Poetry, novels, or short stories?(what you like to read and write of each) Poetry- I like reading emotion and connecting with it, the description that you could be there, and meaning. I like writing this…….I don’t like writing poetry much. But I suppose if I need a reason it’s to releave my head. Novels- I like reading them because they are amazing and I couldn’t live with out them. They are like a different reality you can escape into for awhile, someone else’s life you can step into for just a little while to escape your own. Priceless. I like writing them because that’s what novelists do. I like writing and novels don’t have to be shortened, they give you time to twist the story and give you time to properly describe the backround so you can feel like you’re there. Short stories- I like reading them because it showcases the author’s talent. They have to get there point across, their meaning conveyed, in just a short little thing. I like writing them because they are a challenge to me. To any writer. They give you a limit, perhaps it’s a word count, and it forces you to do what a whole novel does but in about 100x less of a space.
  9. If you could meet anyone, alive or dead, who would it be? Hmm. I don’t know. I don’t really care for many people. Perhaps it’d be the star of my favorite show, White Collar, Matthew Bomber, who plays as Neil Caffrey.
  10. What is your favorite food ever?Uh, don’t have one. I like raviolies or Italian food in general. Or pork chops(:
  11. What is your best talent? Making other people feel weird. What? That can’t be a real talent? Fiiiiine. I’m okay at soccer. But I think my best talent is my writing, which you can view a bit of on my last post(#65).

MY QUESTIONS:

  1. What’s your favorite movie?
  2. Dogs or cats?
  3. Who do you favor your mother or father?
  4. What’s 1 secret that NONE of your friends(online and in real life) don’t know about you?
  5. If you had a turtle, what would you name it?
  6. Who is/was your favorite president/ruler?
  7. What is one of your pet peeves?
  8. Do you believe a person is as good as their word? Or has the world made you not believe that you can take someone’s word?
  9. What is/ what do you want your firstborn’s name to be? Or what is it?
  10. How important do you rate music in your life on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being least important and 10 being the most important?
  11. Do you enjoy doing this sort of thing?

People I Am Tagging:
