We've Moved!

I have moved both of my blogs to wordpress. I know I didn't let you in on this but I really like wordpress (I'll like it better when I figure out how to put pictures on there). I was able to move all of my posts over to my wordpress blogs so all of my posts will still be available there. Please do not comment on any of my posts on this blog except for this one post. Please only comment on my new blogs. They are still kind of under construction but you can still view them.

Continuing to Crochet

I have been continuing to crochet a lot lately. Here is what I've made.






These are pictures of my cucumber roll. I am making another one right now. It is probably my favorite thing I've made.








I finished this small piece of cheese and finally finished my round cracker.






























This shows how big the cheese is compared to my round and square crackers (I made the square cracker a while ago).

Yummi 'Gurumi

I have crocheted since I was 10 and just recently found this book. It shows you how to crochet food. It is really fun. Here is the book.


This is a really thin piece of bread.






This is my watermelon slice









these are my apples



this is zucchini




these are onion rings





this is a cracker




I have made two AG sized foods. Go to my AG blog to check them out.

I'm Making a Change

I am making a change of my blogs. As most of you know I own two blogs, this one and Ruthie's blog. This blog was created for American Girl but has changed to more of my life. I am going to make this blog officially for only me. Ruthie's blog will be changed to my American Girl blog and she will "write" on it every once in a while.

If you would like to see my new AG blog go to this blog.

Me and My Shadow video

This definatly is not the best video but I like the end of it. This is my first video I have photographed in my basement (not the first filmed though). My sister did do her tap routine to this a few years ago.

On Our Dumpster









These are some pictures of our dumpster. As you might be able to see we have caterpillars with white spikes on them on our dumpster. I knew we had some of these on our trees and daddy pulled them down and put them in a trash bag. They must have crawled out and started making another nest. It is really scary. I tried to kill them with Windex (not extremely successful) and now mama is trying to kill them with weed killer.








Update on Everything



I got my computer back! I was so happy. For those of you who didn't know, my computer died a couple of months ago. We took it somewhere and got it fixed a week or two ago and now it is on my desk and working.

We went to the library Saturday. I didn't get a whole lot like I usually do because I have a Kindle (which I love and highly recommend). I also had the next school reading book I needed to read on my Kindle along with the next several books I have to read on paper so I just got pleasure reading books at the library. I got Series of Unfortunate Events 1: the Bad Beginning which I finished that afternoon. It was weird because I had read this book before and I was worried about the characters. I also got A True Princess and Where the Mountain Meets the Moon (audio).

When school starts back I will be reading the Prince and the Pauper. Has anybody ever read it? Is it good? After that I will read the Anne of Green Gables series. I have read an adapted version of Anne of Green Gables and listened to the audio I don't know how many times but I have never read after the first book. I will be reading the first book again but I like it anyway.

I have been making a time capsule of school along with Lune Violette. We put things in our boxes and after the school year is up we won't open them till the beginning of the next school year. Would you like to see my first day of school outfit? It is a little weird. I know that I am homeschooled it is just that I wanted to come up with an outfit to wear. I might changed my mind on it.

Everyone please pray for Lune Violette. Today is her first day of public school ever.

School Already?!

Has everyone had a good summer? Mine was pretty busy. I start school back the 24th. When do you start back? I'm not looking forward to school. Once school starts I don't know how much time I will have to blog. I do want to post pictures of the food I've crocheted.

AG Photo Shoot

Chrissa is up first. I took my jeans and rolled them up, used the shoes from the JLY outfit, silly band rings, used a necklace that I made a while ago, used a shirt from an AG store, and did her hair. I love this outfit.
Here's a close up.
This is how I did Chrissa's hair.
Here's Ruthie! I used Chrissa's dress, some shoes that match anything, a human headband that I turned into a doll one, used a friendship bracelet from Emily, and did her hair.
This is how I did her hair.
The last one is Kit. I used her second school outfit, her glasses, and a brown headband.
Here's a close up.
She struck a pose.

Goodbye

Goodbye everyone! I will be leaving for youth camp in the morning and won't be back till this Saturday. I will not have any access to the computer. So long everyone!

~Marie~

This is a play that was originally written by Corsicapeace as ~Helena~. I asked her permission to change it (partly to add more action for Emily (my sister)) and this is what it became. I give credit to Corsicapeace for the idea and characters. I changed some parts (Corsicapeace did the rhyming parts) and the names of the characters. I hope you enjoy this tragedy.

~Marie~

Cast:

Marie: Princess of England, sister of Raven, and friend of Alice

Alice: apple seller and friend of Marie

Raven: Princess of England, evil sister of Marie, friend of Duchess’s daughter, Madaleine

Madaleine (Mad-u-lane): duchess’s daughter and friend of Raven

Scene 1

Raven: Dear sister, to where are you headed?

Marie: To the market.

Raven: When shall you return?

Marie: five till ten

Raven: Do you promise to be back?

Marie: Here and now I swear.

Raven I will expect your knock.

Marie: I shall be off!

Scene 2

Alice: Fresh red apples! Shiny and bright! Buy one, buy one if you might! Big red apples! Buy one from me! Fresh red apples right off the tree!

Marie: Apple seller, what is your name?

Alice: Alice is my name. You are Princess Marie, hair black as a raven, long as a vine.

Marie: Alice! What a name divine. But please, Marie is fine. Let’s enjoy a snack in this fine weather.

Alice: It’s so much nicer to be together.

Scene 3

Raven: She should be here

(enter Marie)

Marie: Hello, Raven. I am back.

Raven: What did you do on a day so fair?

Marie: I met an apple seller by the name of Alice. We had a wonderful time!

Raven: An apple seller? How awful! You should stay away from her!

Marie: You cannot stand between us.

Scene 4

(Raven knocks on Madaleine’s door)

Madaleine: What is wrong, dear Raven?

Raven: Marie has befriended an apple seller!

Madaleine: I understand why you are upset. Why do you want advice from me?

Raven: Not advice, but help; to rid myself of Marie.

Madaleine: I will help you.

Scene 5

Raven: let us separate them

Madaleine: are you sure?

Raven: I have the tools, I have the funds

Madaleine: an open window, and open door

Raven: now is our chance

Madaleine: but what about the king

Raven: he knows nothing of this

Madaleine: then we must now sing

Raven: it’s now or never

Madaleine: yes, now or never

Raven: true friends join

Madaleine: to fight together

Raven: it’s now or never

Madaleine: truly now or never

Raven: yes, now or never

Raven: we will win or forever endeavor

Madaleine: it’s now or never

Raven: now or never we sing

Madaleine: we will separate them now

Raven: a promise, yes, a vow

Both: let us both go now!

Scene 6

Marie: Why is Raven angry with me? Dislike! Love! Sorrow! Intrusion! I’m in the dark eternal confusion! Loathing! Friendship! Alliance! Detest! Though you are the friend I like the best!

Alice: I have an idea to protect our friendship.

Marie: Please, what is it?

Alice: I cannot say but leave it to me.

Scene 7

Madaleine: Raven, this has gone too far!

Raven: to banish Marie from the kingdom is not too far, Madaleine!

Madaleine: What if you find out that the apple seller is kind. You do not know her! You should be happy that Marie has found a friend. You should also befriend the apple seller. Besides, if your mother and father find out they won’t take kindly to this. You’re not being kind to your sis.

Raven: Well said but I must continue.

Madaleine: You have a stubborn will, Raven. This has made you most unlike yourself.

(Enter Marie)

Marie: What is going on?

Madaleine: You will know very soon I fear.

Raven: The die is cast; the ship has sailed. The goal is set; I cannot fail.

Scene 8

Madaleine: Perhaps going to the market will keep my mind off things.

Madaleine: Hello, apple seller. What is your name?

Alice: I am Alice and who are you?

Madaleine: My name is Madaleine. May I have an apple?

Alice: Here you go. Two pence please.

(Madaleine drops after biting the apple)

Alice: Are you all right?

Madaleine:

I have consented to an evil plan

I have left kindness in a desolate dream

The world is ending as it seems

The unkind is I

That now I see

Raven, oh-

Woe is me!

(She dies)

Scene 9

Raven: Marie!

Marie: Yes, Raven?

Raven: How could you partner with that apple seller to kill Madaleine?!

Marie: What are you talking about?

Raven: Madaleine was found dead near your friend’s apple stand with in apple in her hand.

Marie: I knew not about this.

Raven: Yes you did! Now my best friend is gone.

My heart is broken

My dear friend is gone

My joy is shattered

This ends my song

Pain now has a brand new name

My life will never be the same

I was never good to she

Madaleine! Oh-

Woe is me!

(She dies)

Scene 10

Marie: Alice!

Alice: Yes, Marie? Are you all right? Horror haunts your eyes.

Marie: You know the answer to that.

Alice: I thought that being friends would make up for the deaths of the late Raven and Madaleine…

Marie: Now I see! You traitor! You rebel! You’re deserting me! You are a spy invading this place! Falsehood lurks upon your face! A friendship withers at your call! You never answer me at downfall! I’ll wait alone to stay my fate! You grow not love but always reap! You cause the innocent to weep! Raven was right! Madaleine too! I don’t even know why I’m talking to you!

Scene 11

Alice:

Dead

It is all my fault

I have caused myself great misery

I have lost my very best friend

This shall be the death of… me…

(she dies)

Scene 12

(Alice is still laying their dead)

Marie: Alice? Alice! This is my entire fault! My sister is dead, my friend is dead, my best friend is dead… am I dead?

(She screams and dies)

The end

1. I have been tagged several times

2. I have won two photo contest

3. I am going to camp in my backyard this Friday (hopefully)

Deep Waters

How deep was the deepest water that you have ever swam in? The answer for my sister and I would be 27 feet. When we were in Alabama we went to the lake with Nana and Papa Jim. They have a pontoon boat which Emily, me, and a bunch of family members went on. We went way out and jumped in the water. It was so much fun.

Let me list all the people who were there.

Nana
Papa Jim
me
Emily
Aunt Donna
Aunt Kim
Uncle Dennis
Cody
Zane
Zoe
Gavin
Olivia
Ethan

I have a bunch of cousins. I have twelve cousins to be exact. Here is the list of my cousins. I grouped the sibling groups together.

Gillan
Zane
Zoe
Olivia

Cody
Gavin
Ethan

Taylor
Noah

Brianna
Vivian
Elijah

They live in three different states (four if you count me and Emily).

How deep have you swam?

Monday, June 6, 2011

Wow!

I cannot believe that I have 41 followers. I still remember the time when I created this blog. I would like to thank Aili for being my newest follower and my friend Corsicapeace for being my oldest follower that wasn't my family.

I would like to thank all of my wonderful commenters and readers. Madison Louise, you have been my most faithful reader and commenter.

I have come a long way in my blogging since I made my first blog. I don't post on it anymore but it is still running. Click here if you want to visit it.

You may not know this but Madison Louise and I have been blogging together for a long time. You see, we know each other in person. I told her about blogs (I think) and she taught me how to load pictures. I thank her for teaching me about blogger and for being my friend. And don't worry Madison Louise, I will put A Pirates Life for Me on Write Always today.

There is one more person I would like to mention on here and that is Corsicapeace. As you have probably realized, I know Corsicapeace in person. I've been friends with her longer than Madison Louise. I thank her for reading my blog and being my friend.

Leaving Tonight

I'm leaving tonight for Washington D. C. I won't be able to post but I will tell you all about it when I get back. We are going on an eight hour train ride that leaves at four in the morning. I still haven't decided if I should take a doll. If I do decide to take one I will take Kit (Ruthie was really upset).

What Should I Name This Post?

Guess what? We have had a birds nest outside of Emily's window for a month or two now. The eggs just hatched recently and we get to watch the parents feed the babies. One actually died when it fell out of the nest. We can't wait till the birds can fly.


I have been writing independent stories lately. I plan to send them to AG Magazine to see if they will publish any of them. If you get that magazine you might remember the story contest where you had to write a story that had the title "Dress Disaster." I am writing a story like that. I won't be able to send it in but I will be writing something.

I went to the orthodontist again Tuesday and got my expander. Every day Mama takes a key and turns my expander. At first it hurt but the last time she did it it just felt tight. I used to eat really slowly because I wasn't used to it. For everyone who doesn't have an expander, you are lucky to be able to use the whole top of your mouth.

Friday, May 20, 2011

Another Random Post

I'm sorry I haven't been posting. I have been doing other things. Me and my sister finished taking our achievement tests today. I wrote a new story and put it on Write Always. Here is the website that has the story on it www.writealways.weebly.com .

I only have 4 people signed up for my photo contest. If anyone else would like to sign up please do soon.

Orthodontist and AWANA

I had to go to the orthodontist today. I thought they were just going to make molds of my teeth but that's not all they did. First they took a bunch of pictures (they have weird machinery). Then they did impressions (molds) which felt like they were putting clay in my mouth and leaving it in there to harden. Finally they put spacers in. It was painful. Have you ever had to have your mouth numbed? That was what it felt like. I now have nine spacers in which will help make room for my expander. I keep worrying that one of them will fall out. If you're wondering what spacers feel like imagine that you have food stuck in your teeth in several places. It gets annoying and I've only had them for a few hours.

Tomorrow night I am playing the piano for the offertory (while the ushers take up offering- Adopt A Club offering in this case). It is during the AWANA awards ceremony. I will be getting the Timothy Award which is what you get for finishing four AWANA books.

Another Post With No Name (I'm not good with names)

I know I haven't been on here much. It is mainly because I have to use my sister's computer since mine isn't working. I have recently crocheted an apron for my dolls. I will try to post a picture of it soon. I will also try to put the pictures of my prizes that I got from Francesca for winning her contest (everyone please go to Francesca's blog at www.thegirlsofcrestviewlane.blogspot.com ). My sister really wants to eat lunch so I'll try to post later.

A Post with No Name

Hi everybody! Sorry I haven't been posting much. I have been having to use my sister's computer and I can't get on often. I will say that there is a chance that the May issue of Awesome Dolls Magazine will be coming out late.

I stayed up really late last night. Why? We had the Secret Church. What is that? The Secret Church is an event that takes place twice a year in a church in Alabama. It isn't really secret but we meet at night like they do in secret churches in China, India, Russia etc.. This year they decided to simulcast it to homes and churches all over the world. There were people gathered in Greece and India even (of course it was day time there). The people from our church were there from 7:00 pm till 1:00 am. It was amazing even though the speaker started crying 5 minutes into it (he was very passionate).

My sister really wants her computer back. I won't be able to post often because she never wants me on but I will try.

Please enter Emily's photo contest at www.monkeyemily.blogspot.com .

Please enter my photo contest which is a few posts below. I need 7 more people to enter.

Dance Competition

Emily's dance competition was today. She did really well on her tap solo. Her tap class is tomorrow. When awards came I could feel my heart beating like crazy. She got first place (there is some sort of award system but the dancers aren't competing against each other really; all I will say is that first place is not the highest or lowest score). She also got what is called Kar Kids. It is where you get invited to New York to have classes with some professionals or something like that. Unfortunately it is extremely expensive and we won't be able to go. only about 10 people got it. The worst part about dance competition is that you have to sit there and watch endless other dancers who you don't know. The production numbers can be pretty good but once you see a few of them you are bored of them. They did have some pretty good conservative jazz dancers which I was glad of. Well that is the first day. We still have one more to go. (we actually have to miss church for tomorrow!)

Another Random Post? When Will They Stop?

Hi everybody! I know I haven't been posting much. It is raining where I am at this time. April showers definitely brings May flowers here. It is going to be hard to do the second round for Gabby's photo contest without going outside. It sounds like it is picking up. I usually love rain and storms but this is too much. I got caught in a rainstorm on the way to the other side of our neighborhood last week. It turned out that the people who's house I was going to weren't home. When I got back home the storm sirens went off. I won't ride my bike in weather that looks like rain is coming. I am doing a school project where I write my own commentary on the book of James (in the Bible). It is going to be pretty long. I just started today. I filled out 6 or 7 note cards on the first 1 1/2 pages of a James MacArthur book about the book of James. My dishcloth business isn't going great. I am making them pretty quickly but they are hard to sell. I have made $25 so far and will make $50 more when I sell the ten I have made. I sell them for $5 dollars if you haven't guessed yet. I hand knit them all the time now. I try selling them around my neighborhood but only 1 person bought one (our very nice next door neighbors) and two people will buy one eventually. I make more money selling them to my mom's piano students. I put 10% of the money I get into the offering (for tithe) and 20% goes to my fundraiser for church youth camp. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is coming out on DVD for people in the USA (the UK got it last week). I am very excited. You can read my review on it on the page on movie reviews on here. Ruthie is posting again everyone. She did her very last Harry Potter story Sunday. She is going to move onto her life. There just wasn't enough to write about Harry Potter. I know this was a long post about random things but that is a habit of mine.

I Won My First Photo Contest!

Francesca from The Girls of Crestview Lane had a photo contest and I won (after Paige-An American Girl couldn't claim her prize). I would like to say thank you to Francesca for awarding me pratically second place. This is the first photo contest I have won and I am very excited. The picture below is the picture that she chose.

Awana

Sorry I haven't been on lately. I had to do my last post on my sister's computer because mine had viruses. That also had to be a really quick post because it was bedtime. I only have one more section left in my Awana book and it is really easy. I also got an award last night (at Awana) for having a good attitude about getting a "pie" in my face. Let me explain. We have pie in the face night every year at Awana (we all look forward to it). We all bring in change to vote for our favorite leader. Whoever has the most change gets a pie in the face. For the TNT (Truth and Training) girls that leader was Ms. Andrea. Then Ms. Cheryl draws a name for who will get to put the "pie" (it is really just whipped cream) in the leaders face. Ms. Cheryl drew my name and I was very excited. Unfortunately, Ms. Cheryl announced that the leaders had a meeting before and decided to switch the order. The kids were going to get the "pie" in the face and the leaders were going to give it to them. For those people who know me personally, you know that I am the type of person who does not like getting dirty and always tries to have nice manners. I was really upset at first but had to do it. Thankfully, Ms. Andrea did it very nicely (only on my face and barely in my hair). The worst part was the embarrassment. I have to admit, in the end it was fun. I definitely had to wash my face that night because I could smell the whipped cream on me (gross!). So I was awarded for having a good attitude about it in the end.

It is not a blog; I made it on weebly.

Emily and Mama left for dance competition yesterday afternoon. She will be doing her solo in a few minutes. Her class dance is tomorrow. She will be coming back Saturday night. It is unusually quiet at home without her. Because of the dance competition we don't have school today. I love being homeschooled.

Edit- she is dancing right now, please pray for her

Meet My Dolls

Here is a video I did a couple of days ago. In case you ask, I did do the music myself.

Please go to Ruthie's blog. She is posting again and wants to know if she should continue with the Harry Potter theme.

My Entry for Gabby's Photo Contest

Here is my entry. The theme of these photos is "The Unusual Ruthie."



This photo reminds me of Series of Unfortunate Events because of Count Olaf and V. F. D. I thought this would be an interesting photo. This picture makes the eye seem blank and looking out into the distance. That is something Ruthie will do when she is supposed to be doing school.

Ruthie is a daydreamer sometimes (mainly during school) and this picture shows that.

This shows Ruthie's interesting taste in clothing. She doesn't worry about what anyone else thinks.


Ruthie's Hairstyle











I saw that Phoebe from Love That Doll did this hairstyle on Julie. I decided to do it on Ruthie. Unfortunately, Ruthie has medium, curly hair. Whenever I try to braid her hair the braids stick out of her head. All my dolls have shorter hair, but I do my sister's dolls long hair (well, Emma Lee has medium hair). It is odd that I like long hair but my dolls have shorter hair while my sister likes short hair but two of her dolls have shorter hair and one has medium hair. I also did this hairstyle on myself which worked better because I have wavy/straight, long/medium hair.
In case the pictures aren't clear, Ruthie has three regular braids, a section of hair down, and a small braid. Violet Baudelaire wore this hairstlye in the Series of Unfortunate Events movie. That is actually inacurate because Violet wanted her mom to braid her hair when she was little but her hair just unraveled.
If you would like to see this hairstyle done on a different doll go to

A Funny Star Wars Video with Potter Puppet Pals

Cedarmania Results

I got back from Cedarville today. IT WAS AWESOME! My favorite part was the music which was led by HeartSong. We played lots of games, ate, and went to chapel. I did stay up all night. I didn't get too sleepy, but I was exhausted. I slept most of the way home. I took a nap before going to pointe today but I'm still a little tired. Everyone in our group that went wants to go next year.

Cedarmania

I am going to Cedarmania tonight. Cedarmania is a lock-in type thing. I am nervous about staying up all night. The latest I stayed up is 3:30-4:00 in the morning. I also have pointe at 12:30 the next day. I am still excited about it though. I'll tell you about it when I get back tomorrow.

Japan and Other Things (why do I do such random posts?)

Have you heard about the earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan? You probably have. They were saying that one earthquake was so big that it moved the earth ten inches in its orbit. That is just scary. In my opinion, that could take away our leap year. I know we won't freeze or burn to death because of this change though because God will take care of us.

You might have seen that I changed my pen name to Kit Snicket. She is one of my favorite characters in Series of Unfortunate Events.

Ruthie has posted on her blog and would like you to read it.

I am back on my blog and would like my wonderful readers to read and comment again.

Emma's Blog Headers

Emma, from Our Life, AG Fun, and Pix by Emma, is making blog headers for anyone who wants one. She made me one (not the one above) which was really good. I highly recommend asking her for one. You can find out how to ask her to make one by reading her blog Pix By Emma. Thank you so much Emma!

Picture


Look at this picture I made on http://www.picnik.com/ . Chrissa doesn't really look like she has a body in it (unintentional).


Books Finished

I have finished two of the books on my list that I showed you on my last post. I have finished all of the Series of Unfortunate Events and Bridge to Terebithia.

I loved Series of Unfortunate Events. It was really good. Be prepared to cry on the last chapter of the last book. The very end is happy but makes you want to cry.

I really liked Bridge to Terebithia as well. It was so good till I got to about the ninth chapter. It got really sad. The author is not a Christian possibly because a character doesn't believe that God will send someone to hell (even though that person wasn't a Christian). They also kind of prayed to spirits which was just weird.

Over all, I recommend both of these books. I am now going to read Little Women.

Apology, Orthodontical Work, and Books

I'm sorry that I haven't been posting much. I know I need to more. I had to go to the orthodontist yesterday and found out everything that I have to have done to my teeth. 1. a thing that goes at the top of my mouth that you have to turn with a key to expand the top of my mouth 2. braces 3. rubber bands 4. retainer Then finally I can have almost nothing (I will have a small piece of wire that goes on the back of my bottom teeth forever) on my teeth. That should amount to around 2 1/2 to 3 years. There still is a chance I won't have to get all of that. I still have to see another orthodontist because the other is so expensive. I am finally on the thirteenth Series of Unfortunate Events. I have been reading these books since September, October, or November. I highly recommend them to anyone ages 7 and up. I have a whole list of books that I want to read next. Here they are. 1. Bridge to Terebithia 2. Safely Home 3. Because of Winn-Dixie (I read it when I was 6 but I want to read it again) 4. Frankenstein 5. Swordbird (written by a 13 year old) 6. Peter Pan 7. Jungle Book (written by one of my favorite authors, Rudyard Kipling) 8. Secret Garden 9. Swiss Family Robinson 10. Little Women (I have heard it on audio book a lot and read a shorter version of it but I want to read it again) 11. 1,001 Arabian Nights (recommended by Meghan) 12. Dracula I have many favorite authors but these are probably my favorite. 1. J. K. Rowling (author of the Harry Potter books) 2. David Handler/ Lemony Snicket (author of Series of Unfortunate Events) 3. Roald Dahl (author of Matilda and many other books) 4. Mark Twain (wrote many books) 5. Nancy Yi Fan (the now 14 or 15 year old who wrote Swordbird and Sword Quest) 6. Rudyard Kipling (a writer of books and poetry who was born in India but was British) 7. Lousia May Alcott This is an unusually long post for me. It also includes three topics (apology, orthodontical work, and books). I suppose I just can't stay on topic. That is a talent of mine.

A Writing Disease

I have a writing disease. I don't think I can stop writing. I started the one book that has the first chapter on here and now I started a new book. That isn't including the pass it on book that I am doing with Corsicapeace. The new book I started is called The Adventures of Albus Potter. It is a continuation of the Harry Potter books. I didn't want the Harry Potter books to end so I am writing more of them. When I put them on this blog I will only recommend them to people who have read ALL of the books or people who have seen ALL of the movies (which is impossible because there is still one more).

Update

This is my 100th post! Finally! I am considering moving this blog over to Weebly. What do you think? I will put a poll up. If you haven't subscribed to my magazine please do. The new issue will be coming out in about a week.

A Girl with No Talent

This is the first chapter of my new book. The piano teacher is based on my mom, Jillian is based on my friend Hannah, Hope is based on my friend Meghan, and Nicole is based on my friend Bailey. Gia isn't based on anybody. The dance teacher isn't based on my dance teacher. My dance teacher isn't mean like the one in this story.

Hi! My name is Gianna Morgan Brown but you can call me Gia. I am twelve almost thirteen (although my parents won't admit it) and I have positively no talent. I am not joking. I have tried many different activities but none of them work for me. Believe me, I am not exaggerating. Let me explain.

My mom always wanted me to take dance classes. she signed me up for a ballet class. I was okay with it... at first. First of all the teacher started the class by giving a lecture.

"I want you to be here every week," said Ms. Angelica. "Ballet requires commitment and I am not going to teach a class where girls don't come."

She went on and on. Finally we started doing something. I was no good. Ms. Angelica kept telling me to flatten my thighs and not to sickle when I was trying my best. Everyone else seemed to be doing beautifully.

After class was over, Ms. Angelica talked to mom.

"You daughter is not going to be successful in dance," said Ms. angelica.

"I'm sure if she works at it Gia will do fine," said my mom. As I said, mom always wanted me to take dance classes.

"No she won't. You will be wasting your money."

"How can you tell if you've only seen her do it for an hour?"

"I will not let her in this class again and that's final."

So that was the end of ballet for me. Mom tried to get me into tap, but I refused. I wanted to put as much space between Ms. Angelica and myself.

I didn't only try ballet but many other things. I tried gymnastics, horseback riding, piano, basketball and more. Here is what happened with the one's I mentioned.

Gymnastics seemed like something I would be good at. I was flexible and I loved to watch it during the Olympics. I did well when we all had to stretch at the beginning. The trouble started when we got to the beam exercises. I have no balance when I have to balance on a four inch beam of wood. The bar was just as bad. I couldn't hold myself on the bar or pull myself up on it.

When I got home I told my mom how it wouldn't work. It took me forever to convince her to let me quit. that still wasn't the end of my pursuit to find my talent.

You know how I said it took me forever to convince my mom to let me quit gymnastics? Well that was only because I told her I would try piano which happened to be another thing mom wanted me to take. I happened to want to take it as well. I was anxious and excited to try piano.

Piano got off to a good start. My teacher, Mrs. Donna, was very nice. I was very excited until I found out that I wasn't going to be doing very interesting songs at the beginning. I was highly disappointed but decided to keep with it. I wasn't doing too bad, but I wasn't enjoying it. I kept at it for a week. I thought I might eventually start to enjoy it. I continued to think optimistically until I saw my theory homework. I didn't understand any of the different beats or notes. I couldn't even remember where the notes were. I figured the only reason I had survived this far was because I hadn't had any theory homework. I tried to get out of it but my mom wouldn't let me.

"You are going to stick with this, Gianna," said my mom.

"But I can't remember anything from it and I don't enjoy it," I said.

"If you keep at it you will enjoy it. I regret not continuing piano and now I want you to. Besides, the only reason why you can't remember any of it is because you don't want to."

"But, Mom..."

"Gianna, you are going to continue piano."

You've got to understand that the only people who call me Gianna are people I just meet, strict teachers and my mom when she really means something. Whenever she calls me Gianna I know I can't argue anymore.

I still take piano but I still don't enjoy my lessons.

My parents wanted me to do something active in the summer. Before I knew it they had signed me up for horseback riding. I was not excited about this. I am deathly afraid of horses. I think my parents signed me up for it to help me get rid of my fear of horses.

I was scared to death when I walked up to the horse I was going to ride. The horse itself didn't exactly look like it wanted me to ride it. As soon as I got onto the horse it took off. I somehow got hooked on the horse so when it streaked away, I fell down and was dragged along with it. I'd prefer not to go into details of what happened. Let's just say that my parents let me quit and join a summer basketball team instead.

Basketball seemed like fun at first. The only problem was that none of the girls liked me and I was the slowest player on the team. Because of that I sat on the bench every game except for one. That time was a mistake anyway. Everyone else that could possibly take my place was either mysteriously hurt or fouled out. When I did play in that game, I kept fouling other people and getting behind. I kept with the team for the rest of the summer. I told my parents when it was over that I would have been more active that summer if I hadn't played basketball. They said I was active during practice; then I pointed out that I had to sit out of most practices because I had injured myself when everybody came running my way and knocked me over. They couldn't disagree with that.

Currently the only things I have going for me are my best friends Jillian, Hope, and Nicole, and my straight A's in English and literature. What do I have that isn't going for me, piano and no talent?

What I Think of the New AG Stuff

This book looks like fun.
This outfit is alright. It would look alright on certain dolls but not the one that they have it on.



This dog is adorable. I'm not sure I would buy it but my sister would. There is something strange about this dress. It would look alright on a blond doll but still....



This jacket isn't the best ever.



This outfit is just weird. I do not want it at all.





This book is the same as the Doll Hair book which I have except with more color.










I like the chair but I'm not sure about the rest.

There Is a Place

This is a poem that I just wrote. It is one of the best I have written.

There is a place,
Where the ground is covered in lace.
Where there is a princess,
Who sits restless.
Her palace is made of caramel,
And only chocolate you smell.
The grass is colored yellow,
And no one ever feels mellow.
Where is such a place?
Could it be in space?
I decided to look for it,
So a candle I lit.
Into my closet I stepped,
And then my heart leaped.
I had found the place;
It was not in space.
It was in my imagination all along.
