Books I looove

Hello and welcome back to another blog, in todays blog I am going to be talking about some books I would literally sell my soul to read again. the reason I am doing this is because there is so many books that were just sooo good but no matter how many times you read them it will never give the same thrill, wonder, excitement reading a book for the first time does. Lets get going.

Divergent series- I know I have talked a lot about this series on my blog but I cant help myself its just an amazing series! I love the thrill that it gives you and the excitement for the character’s development and the butterflies, oh the butterflies I wish I still experienced them when I re-read the books. Overall 10/10 I recommend you to read it.

Harry Potter series: Oh My God. dont even get me started on how amazing this series is! the feeling of wonder and magic and heart break and the long these books gives you is just astonishing. This series has a unique way of making you feel like your there, experiencing everything the character’s are and its amazing yet so sad at the same time since you know that sooner or later you have to return to the reality of the world you live in.

Precious Bones: I read this book earlier this year and was amazed by it, this book is a mystery type of genre and the author has such an intelligent way of making you wonder about the suspects but also leads your mind off in different directions at the same time, and the cliff hangers at the end of chapter…… wow.

By your side: This was one of the many Kasie West books i have read this year and by far the best one in my opinion. She does the best job of making you fall utterly in love with the Main character and her journey into love, she also gives you butterflies in ways other books never could for me, she is a very talented author.

The selection series: Might I just say. WOW. This series was absolutely amazing!! it gave you the sense of wonder and longing for her to be with a special someone, it also just makes you loose yourself  in the books a lot like harry potter.

Red Wolf: We are doing this book as a class read but I have read it this summer before school, this book is one I wish I could experience for the first time again because I felt a pain reading it, whether it was for red wolf or crooked ear but I felt a pain. My heart absolutely broke reading that book for the first time but now I feel as I have come accustomed to it as it is my second time reading it and it doesn’t have the same shock or breath taking ability it did the first time I read it.

A Beach Read: I just finished this book the other day and I already want to re-read it. This book was just amazing, it had the thrill, the shock, the heart break, the romance just everything I look for in a book. I felt like I was truly experiencing this book first hand when I read it, I truly felt all the emotions that the character were experiencing and I felt like I related to some of it and I thought the author did an awesome job at that.

Well that is the end of my blog, thank you so much for reading it! I you want to see Madie and Athena’s blogs the link are below, Bye!

My writing

Hello and welcome back to another blog, in todays blog I will be giving short story summaries on my recently wrote stories for owl And if you dont know what owl is it is basically a program we do in our class for 6 weeks you choose a goal to complete and grow on, mine was writing short to medium stories.  So I am here to share what they were about.

Story 1: Love: Definitely

This was a second addition to my ” Love: Impossible” story. This was about the main characters Izzy and Jake get into an argument over the time they are spending with each other the attention they are receiving, Izzy ends up leaving in the heat of the argument, Jake comes up with a way to fix the issue and him and Izzy agree they should be more open about the relationship

Story 2: Mystery Boy

This was my absolute favourite story I wrote throughout the whole owl. It is about Zach and Katie who get wrongly kidnapped and trapped in the basement of 2 very mean men, they quickly become friends and eventually more than that They are tasked with trying to escape while helping each other through the journey, they eventually get out just not the way they expected

Story 3: The Dream

For this story I just kind of went off an idea, out of all my stories it is my least favourite It is about a young boy whos mom gets taken away, he is sent on an adventure to capture back a ruby in order to set his mom  free, little did he know that the strange dreams he had been having lately would come to use in his adventure.

Story 4: Love: Always

This is the 3rd and final addition to my ” Love: Impossible” series. The main idea is that Jake gets Ill and Izzy has to help him get through it, they end up in the hospital. I tried to plan it around the fact that they were learning how to cope on their own without their parents care to help guide them.

Story 5:  To love and to murder

This was a story I only wrote because Athena requested it. Basically the main idea is that the main character was cheated on not once but twice. She seeks revenge against ex- boyfriend and former bff. It ends… well it ends how you probably suspected it did.

Story 6: Without you

This Story, well it is about Natalie’s life after her first love Draco Malfoy dies, she is heart broken and left in despair, it tells a little bit of her story before he died, and yes. Yes I made myself cry while writing this, I dont know why I do this to myself.

Story 7: The Interview

For my 7th and final story i wrote a story about a very organized girl had a interview, the day goes downhill very quickly and ends up with her in a car accident. The rest of the day she takes a very strange trip down memory lane… literally

Thank you for reading my blog this week, if you want me to post some of the stories on here let me know in the comments.. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day. Bye!

Weekend plans

Hello and welcome back to another blog, in todays blog I am going to be blogging about this upcoming weekend and what my plans are. Lets get started.

Ok so if you were in my class today you knew that we were not supposed to be at school, but we ended up going to school because it wasn’t cold enough in the place were the school division is run.( stupid I know) ok but anyways I was hoping and praying so hard that we wouldn’t have school not only for a 4 day weekend but we were sorting calves today anted to help because I love doing that, but surprise surprise we had school ;(

My actually plans for this weekend are actually pretty boring and simple but oh well there’s not much you can do in these times anyways. So on Saturday we are probably just going to have a chill day, most likely having to go and help my dad bring wood home and freeze our butts off. I will probably go with my dad in the morning and feed cows cause I have like nothing else to do lol. On Sunday it is valentines day ( I absolutely love Valentines day, even though I have no one to celebrate it with) and my auntie and uncle are going to come over for a little while and bring a couple snacks so we can have a valentines day ” party”. Don’t worry this is completely legal, they are the 2 people we chose to bubble with. On Monday we are most likely going to be cleaning, naturally Sunday is my moms cleaning day but since we are having a ” party” on that day we are most likely going to be cleaning on that day. What I do is clean the upstairs bathroom and I clean my room.

Well there you are, that is the extent of my weekend. nothing exciting is really happening,  I hope you enjoyed my blog for this week and I hope you all have a good weekend and a fun rest of your day. Bye!

Summer vs Winter

Hello and welcome back to another blog, in todays blog I will be discussing weather I think Summer or Winter is better, lets get started!!

Ok so first thing first I want to say that my favourite season is actually fall but I just want to discuss summer and winter. Ok lets get onto the things I like about summer. One of the biggest things I like about summer is getting to bee outside all day. I also like that in the summer when school is over you can sleep in and just kind of start over you know. I think this because after summer you are going into a brand new school year and for me that is more of a new start than a new year. I also love that I can be  at the farm lots in the summer, its my favourite place to be in the summer because you can play outside lots, you can also go on the rangers or dirtbikes lots. One reason is also I can just go for a little drive on the ranger, past a few fields, down a couple back trails to my faourtite place ever that just I know about.

Now onto winter. I actually dont mind winter, I love the cozy feeling you get after being outside for awhile then coming into the warm house. I also just love the feeling that the whole winter is leading up to Christmas which just always gets me in a cheery mood. I also sometimes dont feel as happy as I do in winter as I do in summer, I dont really know the reason for this I just feel a bit more glum. In the winter is also when you get to go snowmobiling! I love snowmobiling sooo much, it just so fun to speed over bumps and get some real good airtime, I also just like to go for drives and look at the scenery. Even though it gets really cold in winter I dont really mind it.

Ok all in all I would say I like both of the seasons the same, I might like summer a little bit more just for the outside time and you dont always have to get  dresses up in a thousand layers of cloths like you do in winter. Anyways thank you for reading my blog, see you next week, Bye!

Love: Impossible

Love: Impossible

“It would never work, he probably doesn’t even know who you are.” I was pulled out of my stare by the bell. Jake Miller, I have had a crush on him since the first time in seen him in 3rd grade. As the years went by, he became more popular and I was left In the shadows.

Wait, this couldn’t be happening, Jake Miller was walking toward me with the weirdest smirk on his face. “Couldn’t help but see you staring!” Omg Jake had seen me staring. “ummm yeah sorry, I was kind of daydreaming.” He didn’t look convinced, but he shrugged it off. Next thing I knew Jake was giving me a piece of paper along with one of his smiles that lit up his whole face. I opened it with his eyes seeming to burn into my soul. It was an invitation to one of his parties. Jake Miller just invited me to one of his parties!! With that he gave me a wink and said, “be there.”

I texted by Bff Amy that very second. “Omg jake just invited me to one of his parties!!” she replied with, “Your Jake? As in 6 foot super popular, your biggest crush ever jake?” “Yes, that Jake, he caught me staring then came over with an invitation!” “omg Izzy good going!  I have to go or else I get detention.” I was beaming, maybe this could work out, Maybe I had a chance.

The music was booming, it hurt mt ears. As I entered Jakes totally awesome house, I started to question why I was even here. I wasn’t popular or even that pretty.  I wasn’t going home now though; I had put on my best lace top and my moms blue jeans. I entered the house and immidentley felt so out of place.  I decided to explore the house instead, I could feel; my anxiety building already and I needed to take a break so I headed for a spare bedroom where I could stay for awhile and clear my head.

“Jake?!, I’m so sorry, I will leave!” I had just walked into the very bedroom Jake was in, he has his hands on his head and he looked very distressed. “No, stay please! I need a distraction.” I stayed and walked over to the other end of the bed and took a seat. “Why are you in here? Don’t you have a party to host or something.” I asked. “Yeah, I was overwhelmed, I forgot to take my anxiety medication today.” He flinched as he said the last part. “I haven’t told anyone that before.” As he said that his eyes met mine, they looked pain and I couldn’t help but think there was a different reason he was here. “It’s ok I have the same thing.” I gave him a little smile and got up to leave but he grabbed my wrist. “Isabelle, right?” “yes, but please call me Izzy” I replied, my heart racing. “well then, Izzy thank you, I just needed to say that out loud.” With that I smiled again and left.

Jake had anxiety too! I didn’t know what but that made me feel a bit better. I tried to calm my racing heart as I made my way to my car. Why had he made me so panicked, he just grabbed my wrist.

A few more weeks passes since the party. Me and Jake were friends now and we hung out sometimes. He still made me nervous, but I was managing it. One day I was watering my mom’s flowers when jake rolled up” hey hope in I want to show you something!” He had driven me to the most beautiful ever. We sat under the large oak tree looking over the town. It was a sight to see.

“Why did you bring me here? I asked after a while of silence. “ I like you Izzy, I have for a while I just didn’t know how to tell you, so I brought you here.” He blushed “ Well I like you too, have for a while I just thought I was to odd for you.” Jake slide over so we were shoulder to shoulder. H e was close, to close my heart picked up speed as he turned to look at me. My cheeks were red I could tell. “ I should get home.” I said as we stood. I started walking but tripped on a root, Jake caught me,  I looked into his hazel eyes, they were intense but sparkling with laughter. I smelt his musky, citrus scent,  I put my hands on his chest helping push myself up, we were close once again, this time his lips were moving towards mine, I found myself leaning towards him, but he stopped millimeters before my lips. “ Just so you know, you were never to odd for me.” He smiled. Our lips collided, his breath was minty. I took in every moment of this kiss. His hands moved to my waist pulling me closer. I finally willed myself to break the kiss, I pulled him into a hug. That was the moment I realized this was were I needed to be. I needed to be in his arms surrounded by his breath taking scent, this was my place.

 

 

Endangered species

Endangered Species

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to slowly fade off the face of the earth? Probably not right? Well this is the sad reality for many of the animals in the world today. There are many species of animals that have already gone extinct, this is why us humans have to try our best to make sure this is not the reality for any more animals then it needs to be. I will now give you a list of the top 5 endangered species.

  1. Sumatran Rhino: There is less than 80 of these rhinos left in the wild today. There is no longer any of these animals left in Malaysia. The Sumatran Rhino has dropped 70% of their population in the last two decades due to poaching
  2. Javan Rhino: with just under 60 left in the wild, none, zero, zip of these rhinos left in the wild. Is it that sad. These rhinos should be living free in the wild, not cooped up in a cage, with the zoo being the only home they have ever known. The 60 of these rhinos now live in Ujung Kulon national park.
  3. Amur Leopard: With only 30 leopards living in the wild, the Amur Leopard is one of the most watched over species living in the wild. All the zoos in the entire world have a combined number of just 300 leopards. However you may think well that’s a lot, think, most of these leopards have never seen the wild where their ancestor lived.
  4. Indus Dolphin: With the 50% increase in numbers since 2001 the Indus river dolphin has reached a 1,816 population as of 2020 thanks to the local community helping out with the protection of these marine animals.
  5. Vaquita: This marine animal is considered the rarest marine animal in the world today. This aqua mammal has the population of 10, 10 of these animals left in the world. These animals have been rapidly decreasing in the last 2 years due to the increase in chlorinated pesticides and loose fishing nets. These animals are literally balancing life and death.

Kinda sad right? These animals are doing the best to thrive and live, but us humans have to come and stamp on everything with our poaching and littering. And remember we don’t want these animals living in zoos. We want them to live their life in the wild, not locked up in a cage, some of them have never and probably will never see the wild. I hope this gave you some information and a look on what is actually happening to animals today.

My fears

Hello and welcome back to another blog, in todays blog I am going to be talking bout the things that scare me the most, so if your a sibling, then listen up your about to get the best ways to scare me.

Ok number one is when my dad is quiet. so if any of you know my dad you know that he likes to talk…… a lot, and it scares me when he is quiet. It scares me because something is either  wrong or hes sad/hurt. Personally I like that he talks a lot because we have good communication between the two of us. I would defiantly have hard time not talking to my dad because he is very supportive and funny and I just like talking to him.

Number two is being useless to my family, this isn’t really a fear but more like a think that disappoints me if it were to happen. I love helping, I love being useful and I love putting in effort and seeing a reward. I like to be useful to my family because they all work so hard and out everything into what they do, and in todays generation escpeocally people are getting off with doing less and less work and still getting the reward and this really bothers me.

The next two and three are kind of stupid but oh well, They are the fear of elevators and the fear of airplanes. ok so for the elevators I just have no clue why but every time I get on one my breath gets shallow and I can barley breath. its just something about them that I cant deal with. And the airplanes.. I’ve been on one once, just once and I hated it, I felt like I was going to die and I had a panic attack from overthinking. I am fine with little planes though, I have been up in my uncles crop duster lots of times and have been fine which is really weird.

Now i will just list a couple things i fear.

  1. being watched ( in a creepy way)
  2. losing all my friends/family
  3. untidiness
  4. painfully dyeing
  5. loosing everything I work for
  6. failure
  7. total darkness
  8. falling through the ice

Ok that is about it, I have a couple more but they are very specific so yeah, I hope you guys enjoyed my blog! here is a link to madies blog to is doing a back to school blog!!

Grandmas Famous Banana Bread

Grandmas Famous Banana Bread 

Why I chose this: 

I chose this recipe because my grandmas banana bread is literally the best banana bread you will ever taste. She says not everyone can make it though. She says you have to really love baking to be able to bake this. My grandma even says that I make it better than her, but you and I both know that no baking I will do will better than my grandmas; that just a fact!! Grandmas (or at least my grandma) in my opinion are made for baking, I swear my grandma has the magic touch to make anything taste good. 

Ingredients: 

1 ¾ cups of flour. 

1 ½ cups of sugar. 

1 tsp baking soda. 

½ tsp salt. 

2 eggs. 

½ cup oil. 

2-3 bananas.  

¼ cup of buttermilk (+ 1 tbsp lemon juice). 

1 tsp vanilla. 

Instructions: 

  1. Spray loaf pans with cooking spray or something of the sort 
  2. Mix together dry ingredients 
  3. Mix wet ingredients separately
  4. Mash bananas 
  5. Add dry and mashed bananas into the wet mixture and DO NOT OVERMIX 
  6. Add batter to prepared loaf pans and bake at 325 degrees for 1hourand 20 minutes. 

Notes: 

  • If making a double batch, don’t double recipe, mix another batch separately. 
  • If you want to moisten bread add more buttermilk.
  • To make buttermilk, mix your milk and 1 tbsp of lemon juice per every ¼ cup of milk. 
  • Cook your bread for less time if you want softer bread 
  • Add 1-2 tsps of cinnamon to your batter if you want a nice twist on the flavor of your bread. 
  • Frozen or overripe bananas have the most banana flavor! (the ripe ones are most likely the ones with the brown patches) 

My Favourites

Hello and welcome back to another blog, in today i am going to be blogging about my favourite things. My favourite sports, foods, colours, seasons, etc. Lets get started.

We are going to start off with my favourite sports! So my favourite sports to watch are hockey and baseball. but my favourite sports to play are volleyball and baseball and basketball. I like playing all sports but these ones are just extra fun for me! For volleyball I play middle and sometimes setter if we are short or if the set setter (haha tongue twister) is away. For baseball I play pitcher and first baseman, or would you say first basewoman. sorry I will stop with the horrible dad jokes.

Ok my next is my favourite colours! Ok so this probably makes no sense but I love colour I like all of the vibrant colours and different ends of the spectrum. But I dont like wearing vibrant colours, I dont like wearing vibrant colours because I don’t really think they fit my skin tone and its not really things I like to wear. but my top two favourite colours would have to be yellow and violet or purple.

Ok and on to the next which is my favourite animal. Ok so I really love cows, like I really love them they are awesome and cool and everything but they aren’t my all time favourite. to be honest I dont really have a favourite but some animals that are up there on my list are cows, giraffes, sloths, llamas, sea turtle ( my spirit animal).

So I really wanted to do a favourite foods category but that is hard! I like lots of types of food so I have no clue which one is my favourite, so like the animals I will do the ones that are on the top. ok so we got lasagna, fettuccini, steak, ok this is too hard so I just like food in general ok?

So we got s speed round before we end this blog so lets go! My favourite season is fall, favourite type of truck is Chevy, favourite subject is science, favourite book is the divergent series ( so far that is ). ok that is it for todays blog, I hope you enjoyed it! go check out madie and Athena’s blogs next! bye!
