Down The Road

This is my writing dump and I've randomly created this short prose. Enjoy!

"Down The Road"
by Sammie the Stargirl

Before you go, here is my message to you. I may be from the past; a sticky note crumpled and thrown away, a photo from the attic but please take note of this.

You are at a road given a hundred paths to choose from. These paths look different from each other as one seems to have strawberry red fields, the next with autumn amber leaves, a path that doesn't look presentable, another with bright sunflowers, one that you least expect, and many others. I want you to choose carefully on which path to take. You'll have your hands on your pocket and your forehead will be scrunched up in choosing, but choose wisely. It can affect many things. It will affect things. Once you have chosen, it will change you.

Before you do embark on that path, I wish you would be okay. I will rarely talk to you so I wish you would be doing well. I want you to be safe in that path to the point you do not have to worry about danger in the corners you see. I want you to be free-flowing like clean and clear water and embrace that path you seek. I want you to be ready of all the storms you might face along the way. Live to the fullest as all the days pass. Appreciate the little things that come to you for they give you the biggest smiles. All I want you to know is that someone loves you. That someone cares for you. If you haven't seen that person yet, that path will have him/her and walk no matter how long it takes. I also want you to know that you like pistachio ice cream, watching a butterfly come out of its cocoon, constellations, seeing the sun rise, hide and seek and hidden treasures.
The path you chose has made you different now.

You are no longer the person you used to be. And I do not need to know how much or how or why you did change... All I know is I did too.


Happy Holidays readers! :) Hope you had a great Christmas! How did you spend your Christmas day?

Halloween 2014


I spent my Halloween with my circle of friends and it was actually really fun!  We enjoyed each others time. Simply, walking around, eating, getting candy, taking photos was a blast.  I dressed up as a minion from "Despicable Me".  Happy Halloween to you all!

Sammie's (not so) Grand Guide to Good Grades


I'm halfway through Junior Year or Grade 11 and let me just say, IT WAS VERY HECTIC.  Projects and exams due all over the place.  But I survived. 
I am a Junior and my teachers and some people from higher batches tell me that Junior grades are important once you do take entrance exams.  These are the grades that colleges look at being the most recent ones. 
I'd say I am a pretty good student in class and my first term went pretty well, this is why I would like to share some tips on how to get good grades and survive class.  These are what I do and maybe just maybe it might work for you too.  These are based on what I have experienced too.

International Youth Development Summit 2014


From September 20-23 of this year, I was invited with 5 other girls to go to the International Youth Development Summit 2014.  This was hosted and organized by National Association of UNESCO Clubs in the Philippines Inc. (NAUCP Inc.) and the Philippine National Commission for UNESCO in partnership with the City Government of Pasay.  

With its theme, "Reimagining a Peaceful and Resilient World Beyond 2015", attendees listened to talks on climate change, UN's goals and empowerment of the youth.  Participants also had to interact and join different competitions.  This is to unify everyone to make the world a better place.

Seasons

I am thankful for everything and everyone around me.  I see each one of them as a blessing.  Without them, they wouldn't have made me who I am today.  I believe people come into your life for a reason; to help you learn something.  Today, I dedicate this poem of mine to someone who has helped me A LOT and changed me for the better.  This person is still with me today and is a VIP in my life. HAHA  Funny to say, we weren't close at first.  I honestly think I would never ever ever talk to this person at all (sounds exaggerated but yeah) and that we'd pass not talking to each other but I was so wrong.  It's cute how people you least expect are the ones that are there for you and do stay with you.  I dedicate this poem to you, you know who you are (I know you read my blog).    Nonetheless, I hope everyone who reads this poem of mine will be delighted by it!  It came from the bottom of my heart.

The Seven Deadly Sins Tag

I was nominated for the Seven Deadly Sins Tag, and no this isn't a do or die tag or a scary tag at all. In fact, the questions were pretty interesting so I accepted the tag. Thank you Aigel form Mindful Ramblings who tagged me. 


Greed:
1. What is your most inexpensive book?
 Hmm.. I think it is "Guess How Much I Love You" by Sam McBartney. ;) HAHA

Wrath 
2. What author do you have a love/hate relationship with? 
I think poetry books win this question since poetry can be tricky but if you get it you can get the  "wisest person of them all" feeling for at least a minute! HAHA I wasn't a big fan of poetry before but now I am starting to like it and make my own. :)
Gluttony
3. What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame? This book would be Love and Misadventures by Lang Leav. I go back to it for the happy and sad works. Depends on my mood.

Sloth
4. Which book have you neglected reading due to laziness?I would say this was "An Abundance of Katherines" by John Green. Don't get me wrong, I love John Green but I did feel lazy while reading this book... it seemed very slow.

  Pride
5. What books do you most talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
 I would say poetry books because if I could understand them and feel them I'd feel somewhat smarter. HAHA I'm beginning to enjoy reading poetry so YAY.

Lust
6. What attributes do you find attractive in a male or female character?
 I'd say in a male character I'd want them to be the chill one or the funny and somewhat good-looking. HAHA For a female character,

Envy
 7. What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
Any book that I get is surely something I'd love to own... if only I could own all! HAHA But right now, I would really want The Blood Of Olympus by Rick Riordan. I can't wait for it to come out.

And I'm done!

Font Pack for September

I haven't done these posts in a while so to start September... It is the return of the Font Packs!
These aren't my fonts, they are some fonts I like a lot but you can download these fonts at dafont.com.

The "-Ber" months is starting again.  In my country, we can say that Christmas season is coming.  The  climate becomes cooler and everyone becomes merrier since Yultide season is drawing near. 

So far, I have been really busy with school.  There are so many presentations, videos and projects and I hope my head can take them all.  I do not like s t r e s s. (I do not think anyone does.)  Besides from all that, I am pretty okay.  I handle stress by being calm and composed and by free-writing.  I always have a positive outlook and think that everything will be okay! This prevents me from going crazy or something. HAHA I will try to do more posts soon. Good luck to me! 

How are you? How do you deal with stress? Hope you, my readers, are okay! :) xx

Glass

When I have nothing to write or when I am on a writer's block, I take writing prompts. I go over to writeworld.tumblr.com (very helpful for all kinds of writers #win) and check them out. They have three kinds of prompts: sentence, photo and music. These prompts are supposed to help you create a new work. I have posted one of my works based on a prompt (photo) before. This time I've decided to find my own song and do a music prompt. I have chosen Break Free by Ariana Grande featuring Zedd. It's a last song syndrome of mine since last week. Besides from that, I chose to focus on a specific line which is: "This is the part where I break free, cause I can't resist it no more." A quick note though, this piece of mine has a different message from the song. You'll see when you read it. Enjoy! :)

Haiku : Lenses

A haiku, which has its origin from Japan, is a 3 line poem. The first line has 5 syllables, the next has 7 syllables and the last has 5 syllables again. I love making haikus. I find them really fun to make even though it can get challenging. I took a photo prompt to make this haiku. Enjoy!

Lenses by Sammie
"my eyes are lenses
that see you and your beauty
how lovely is it"



Have you ever made a haiku?

Black Milk: Disney Princesses and Villains Collection

Black Milk Clothing line just released their latest "Disney Princess and Villains" collection. This features Disney inspired prints on tops, skirts, and bottoms.

I am a big Disney fan. No shame on that. I think this collection does not only bring you back to your childhood, but it also makes a great trend with its bright prints and vibrant colors. Although some of the pieces look too kiddie or childish, the rest look very pretty.

Here are some of the pieces that caught my eye (or I secretly wish to have them).

Nocturnal

Hello August! Let me start you with another work of mine.
I have made another poem yet again! I was debating on what I should name this poem. It took me a while to decide on it. I also have no idea why most of them involve objects in the sky, nonetheless I hope you enjoy reading this work of mine!


Title: Nocturnal

This Is How I Blog Tag

I was found this tag on Cathy's blog and decided to do it. It did say that anyone was free to do so, so here it is!

Do you prefer: bright colors for your blog OR simple colors?
Simple colors because bright colors can be distracting or irritating to the eyes and simplicity is beauty. <3

Do you blog in: quiet areas, or loud areas?
I usually blog at night when the temperature is cold and it is silent.

How would you describe your blog? A book blog, fashion blog, etc.
I'd have to say my blog is a personal/writing/lifestyle blog. hihi

Long posts, short posts, or somewhere in the middle?
It depends on the topic but I am fine with any.

When you first started your blog, what did you think?
I was scared of what people would think of me and I did not really know how was I going to go about it. But hey, I managed to get here. I did it!!!
How do you think your blog is going to be like in the future?
Besides from it having more posts, it will still be probably be a personal/writing/lifestyle blog. I might have more followers in the future! Who knows? I also hope to get some blog awards, meet new blogger friends and continue this til forever.

I tag..... Cindy, Molly, West, and YOU reader!! :) Enjoy.

Sixs and Tens







There will always be a day in the month when you are absolutely bored and then you find something to do just in the nick of time... For me, that was creating six word stories and ten word love stories with one of my best friends (let's leave the name at b). We had nothing to talk about and came up talking about it. For some apparent reason, my friend finds it easier to make six word stories while I find it easier to do ten. Credits to us. Here are our works:






"Six word stories are not easy." - me
---
"She can't make six word stories." - me
---
"She thinks of what to reply." - me
---
"Yet she cannot reply. She's stunned." - b
---
"Hey there, I love you to the moon and back." -me
---
"She decided. She pulled the trigger." -me
---
"Love is blind. So they say." -b
---
"Broken hearts will eventually be healed." -b
---
"The phone call ended. It's over." -me
---
"Ten words aren't enough to express my love for you." -me
---
"Love is what is important and the two in love." -b
---
"She loved him. He loved her. That's all that mattered." -me
---
"I love you. Don't forget that." -b
---
"Their eyes finally met and it stayed like that forever." -me
---
"She fell for him. She fell hard and didn't regret." -b

Thank you B for doing this with me. Big shout out to you! <3

Comment a six word story or ten word love story that you made or that you like.
