Dreaming

FictionFriday #22

Dreaming-In-Your-Dreams-.jpg
I once dreamed of flying
Up in the sky
The wind beneath my wings
Seeing the world from above
Like a bird
Without care or worry

I once dreamed of diving
Down in the sea
Water floating all around me
Seeing the world through waves
Like a fish
Without care or worry

I once dreamed of crawling
Inside the earth
Dirt surrounding me
Seeing the world from its depths
Like a worm
Without care or worry

When I awake from my dreams
I feel the wind
I drink the sea
and I walk the earth
Like a man
Worrying about what the meaning of life is

I hope you liked this poem.

Have a nice Friday!

One thing led to another…

SpecialSaturday #5

At dinner, I was telling my brother about this bit in a stand-up show by Brian Regan that is one of my favourites. It’s this bit about writers using the phrase ‘and one thing led to another’. Brian is saying how that phrase is just lazy writing. It is the writer’s job to tell the reader how this led to that.
He gives a genius example:
Adolf Hitler was rejected as a young man in his application to art school
one thing led to another…
and the United states dropped two atomic bombs on the sovereign nation of Japan.

You can see the clip here:

My brother being the genius that he is came up with his own example:
Harry woke up in the closet under the stairs
one thing led to another…
and Harry killed Voldemort.

So I decided to come up with some examples myself.

God created the heaven and the earth
one thing led to another…
and Jesus died.

Bill Clinton did have sexual relations with that woman
one thing led to another…
and Trump became president.

Bilbo went on an adventure
one thing led to another…
and Frodo destroyed the ring.

Once upon a time there was a princess
one thing led to another…
and they lived happily ever after.

Gutenberg discovered the printing press
one thing led to another…
and fifty shades of grey was published.

A monkey walked on two legs
one thing led to another…
and I am writing this post on my computer.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you come up with some ‘one thing led to another’ examples write them in the comments.

Have a nice Saturday.

Sweet Revenge

SpecialSaturday #4

1 Week of preparation, 800 post it notes, 4 hours of sleep and unwavering determination. This is all you need to pull an April Fool’s Day prank.

Target: my mom
Alarm: 3:00 AM
Goal: Sweet Revenge

After waking up at 3:00 AM and silently going downstairs in Ninja-mode it was time to get started. 4 Hours and 48 minutes later this was the result:

You might be wondering why? Well, you can read all about it here:
Why I decided to prank my mom for April Fool’s Day

I planned out everything beforehand. I even created an Excel-sheet for the colour combinations.

Let this be a warning! Do not mess with me. 😀

I hope you all have an amazing Saturday!

MailMonday #2

Dear person who decided that we should change the hour forward (and backward for that matter),

I hate you with an undying passion.

Sincerely,
Charlotte

I hope you guys have a lovely Monday, but not the guy (yes, I just know it’s a guy) who decided we should mess with the clock! 

WordWednesday #15

Are you ready? Let’s do this. Here’s how it works: No plan. No ideas. Just words!

My strength is not defined by my gender
My intelligence is not defined by the size of my breasts
My beauty is not defined by your attraction
And my life is not defined by men

I am a woman who can open her own jars
I am a woman who reads books
I am a woman who dresses for her own pleasure
And I am a woman who loves her womanhood

Happy international women’s day.
We_Can_Do_It!

ShortSunday #7

Fear
636037141990688898-1508755838_leaving-your-fears-insecurities-behind
Sometimes fear can be crippling
That voice in your head preparing for the worst
Telling you to stop
It’s like Murphy said:
Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong
Sometimes it feels impossible to stay in the moment
When my head is already five steps ahead
I decided to do more things that scare me
To take more risks
The voice is just really making it difficult
To move forward
I just keep telling myself:
Even if everything goes wrong, I will survive
I will still be here
In the moment
I will be able to say:
I did it
I faced my fear
I’m still here
I survived
