HAHA! Did I make you laugh? Did I make you smile? Thanks for joining us on our new segment, Memes ‘n’ Laughs! See you next time!

Here is our last segment: Guess to Win!!

Here’s how to play: I’m going to give you a hard picture for you to try figure out the book using the clues in the picture. In this case, it will be a book that has a blanked out title. You have to guess what the title is!

Also, I have decided that instead of having you comment below your answers, I will have you do a form! After a few days have passed, I will take all those who filled out the form and draw one winner at random.

Speaking of winners, I have a winner from last episode! Ready to see who it is?

(Keep scrolling)

(This needs to be intense)

Congrats Akriti! Akriti has a blog called Recipe of Life, which first off is a name that I have grown to love! Isn’t that a creative name? She recently posted her new Wattpad novel called Our Complicated Relationship. She also posted a post, one that I love, which is her February Bujo Setup. I just love her journal style! (Her post and another bloggers post got me into bullet journaling again after I stopped a year ago.)

It has been really fun to get to know Akriti! Go check out her blog!

After you have guessed for this episode, I will collect all the winners and draw them at random. But this time, I have an even bigger prize! If you win this episode, you will get to be a contestant on the next Memes, Quotes, Pics!

Let’s see who the lucky person is!

Ready?

Set!

Go!

How To

Hello guys! How has your week been? I’m back again with a really fun (and really random) post.

I was just thinking about my week and realizing that there was a lot of things that I struggled with, or didn’t know how to do, or things I decided I could have done better. And then it got me thinking about how to things. That is why I put together a new post, How To. This post will just feature a compilation of a couple, brief guides on how to do random stuff. (I know, it is REALLY random.) But I’m doing it anyway!

Have fun with your random how to guides!

How to: Reduce Stress

  1. Exercise. Just 30-45 minutes of exercise can leave you feeling happier and healthier.
  2. Get a massage. This therapy can help reduce your stress.
  3. Eat healthy. This will help your body function to its potential.
  4. Improve your sleep schedule. An average person needs about 7-9 hours of sleep. Sleeping too little is a problem and sleeping too much leaves you feeling groggy so make sure you find the right balance for you. I have a friend I know who only gets about 4 hours of sleep every night. I don’t know how she functions!
  5. Tune into your body. Take time out of your time to check in with your self to see how stress is affecting your body. You could even try separating your mental self from your physical self and meditate.
  6. Child’s pose! This is something that I know that personally helps me. Child’s pose lets you relax yourself and breathe. It helps you become more aware of yourself. I used to tell myself that I hated yoga. I thought it was absolutely the worst and I always was bad at this. Recently, I discovered this pose and fell in love with it. Here’s how to do the pose below. This is now one of my favorite things to do to release stress.

7. Focus on your breathing. Find different breathing techniques that help you become less stressed. Try the 4-7-8 technique. Breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, hold the breath for 7 seconds, and exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds.

8. Listen to music. I have found that music helps me de-stress and I go to it first when I need to calm down. It doesn’t have to be classical or calming music. It could be any type of music that you like to listen to.

How To: Fly In Your Dreams

  1. Visualize flying. Spend moments of your day imagining that you are flying. Surround yourself with images of flying.
  2. Write your dreams down in your journal. As soon as you wake up from a dream, write down what you remember from it in your journal.
  3. Make a goal. How will you fly in your dream? Where will you fly? Will you fly like a bird? In a bubble? Swim in the air? Before you go to bed, recite your goal in your head over and over again.
  4. Realize you are dreaming. Interact with the landscape. Try to lucid dream. When you are sure you are lucid dreaming, try flying. Focus on the dream. If your mind wanders, so will the dream.

How To: Spy On People

  1. Always act normal. Be “as cool as a cucumber.” Look relaxed, don’t fidget too much, and keep your eyes straight ahead.
  2. Have an excuse if you get caught. Come up with a story as to why you are spying on them.
  3. Walk softly. Test out your shoes before you go on your mission.
  4. Learn from the experts. (a.k.a movies)
  5. Practice. Practice Practice. Practice before you go.
  6. Always carry a notebook and pen.
  7. Learn to read lips if you are far away and can’t hear what the person is saying.

How To: Look Awesome At A School Dance

  1. Hop in the shower or bath. Wash and moisturize your face and clean your nails. Pick your outfit and style your hair.
  2. Make a good entrance.
  3. Remember having fun is what is important.
  4. Don’t get into drama while you are there. You should be having fun at the dance. No party poopers allowed!
  5. Dance!

How To: Clean Your Room

  1. Start with little things that you know where they go.
  2. Do one section of your room at a time. Don’t be cleaning and organizing a bunch of things at one time.
  3. Take occasional breaks. You can’t work on it all day!
  4. Listen to music. It gets you motivated! And maybe stop for a dance break! 😉
  5. Don’t keep the things you won’t need and don’t use. Keep things simple.
  6. Avoid eating in your room. It makes it harder to clean and eventually your room will start to smell like food.

That’s all the how to guides I have for you! They are all random, but I hope you had at least a little bit of fun reading them!

Okay, so I know I said in the last post that Memes, Quotes, and Pics will be coming soon, but I decided to give a bit more clarification. The next game show episode will come out either the beginning of next week or next weekend. (Because I something else planned for February 3rd, and I need to keep the posts spaced out.) But I promise you it will come soon! And I can’t wait for you guys to read it!

Have a great day fans and I will see you next time!

Meet My MC-A Writer’s Linkup

Hola fans! I’m back again with a fun post I’d thought I would try. I wanted y’all to meet my main character from one of my books!

This writer’s linkup is hosted by Maya Joelle! When I first saw this linkup, I was mind blown and super happy. You can find details about the linkup on her post here. The linkup runs from January 1-30. Hope you will join it!

Without further ado, let’s jump in!

1 // Introduce your MC. What’s their name? Age? Appearance? (Sharing collages/inspiration photos encouraged!)

Alrighty, my MC (Main Character) is from one of my side stories. By side stories, I mean a story that isn’t my main story I’m working on now, but one off to the side. I don’t even have a name for it right now.

My main character’s name is Bentley. She is around 15 years old and is on the more shy personality side. But, by the end of my book, she might be the most outgoing one.

Bentley has long brown hair she puts into a half-up hairdo, brown eyes, and a shy smile. She’s about medium height which makes it easier to get trampled at school. XD

2 // Explain how your MC fits into the plot of your book (as best you can without spoiling it all…)

Bentley started out as a girl in school that tried her best not to be the center of attention. She did get bullied at her school, but she wasn’t strong enough to fight back. She hadn’t found her place yet. Bentley gets kidnapped and realizes that she and her friends are the ones who have to work undercover to help save the government of their country. Bentley fits into the plot because she is the one who has to lead the missions and overcome her fears.

3 // What’s the first thing your MC says in the story? The last? A random quote from the middle that you like?

I don’t have the book all the way to the end yet, lol, but I am about 1/4 through. I’ll give you the first thing she says, and a quote somewhere in the middle of words that I have written.

 “‘Excuse me.’ she squeaked to everyone.”

Not a very interesting first thing to say, but that is what she says! And here’s a quote somewhere in the middle.

“Bentley now had a distaste for being unconscious. She had gone unconscious two times today and hoped not to break her record. When she came to, she didn’t want to open her eyes. Even though she hated being unconscious, this time she had a dream. She was back in Yellowstone with her mother. And for some reason, the boy, the figure, was with them too.”

4 // Which other character would die for your MC?

This question made me think deep! One of my characters, Silas, would die for Bentley. He would do anything for her safety, but it takes him a while to realize that.

5 // Would your MC die for them?

Yes, Bentley would. It would take a couple of hesitations but in the end, she would die for others.

6 // Have any major details about your MC changed since you first created them?

YES! I started writing this story about a year ago, forgot about it, and just started again recently. I’ve had to make a couple of changes to Bentley. 😉

7 // What characters (from books/movies not by you) remind you of your MC? Why?

Hmm, not really any . I mean, Silas kinda reminds me of Fitz’s personality from KOTLC but Bentley doesn’t remind me of anyone.

8 // Share your MC’s favorites!
[ color, food, type of clothing, place, type of music, season, smell, etc. ]

Oooh! I love favorite lists! Here’s Bentley’s list:

Color: Red

Food: Caesar salad

Type of Clothing: A plain shirt that could get messy when she sculpts

Place: Anywhere with her loved ones

Type of Music: classical/relaxation

Hobby: Sculpting

Subject: English

Favorite Time of Day: Night

9 // If your MC wasn’t involved in your story, what would they be doing? (Basically: what’s their dream life? Where do they want to live, what do they want to do?)

Bentley has a couple of things that she’d want to be in her dream life. First, she would want to have her mom home more instead of her working all day and late into the night at her job as a nurse. Bentley would also love to sculpt as her career.

10 // Share a fun extra (another collage, a playlist, a scene from the story, a drawing, etc.).

Here’s a small collage based on my book!

Thank you guys for tapping in for today’s post! I hope you had as much fun as I did when I created this post. Also if you have not guessed to win yet on Memes, Quotes, Pics, go and do that because the next game show episode is coming soon!

See you all fans later!

Have You Ever Listened to the Rain?

A Poem By Alexa

Have you ever listened to the rain? 

The way it softly, kindly, slowly, 

Pit patters on the roof.

Have you ever listened to the rain?

When it pours, pours, pours,

As if someone was crying a storm

Have you ever smelled rain?

The smell of freedom?

Have you ever touched rain?

Lifted your hand to the sky?

And let the drops sink into your hands?

Have you ever watched the rain?

As it gently falls

As it hits the ground

Have you ever felt rain?

Drip down your clothes

As it runs to find a home

Have you ever danced in the rain?

And let your worries fly free?

Let the melody carry you away,

To a place full of dreams

Have you ever listened to the rain? 

The way it softly, kindly, slowly, 

Pit patters on the roof

Edit: Congrats Padawan! You have found the first clue! Complete the next workout and then answer this question:

How many seconds in total does Rey complete the workout Rey Strikes? Take the number you got and divide it by six. Then go to the post that matches that number. For example if you got 15, you would go to the 15th post.

KOTLC Mallowmelt Recipe

And I’m back! This time with a post for all those cooking and baking lovers out there. Shout out to you! 

This recipe is the Keeper of the Lost Cities Mallowmelt recipe. I haven’t tried it myself….yet….but I’m hoping to. You guys will have to tell me how it tastes if you bake it! 

I found this recipe on Shannon Messenger’s website. Check it out here! She is the author of this fabtabulous book series. I don’t own this recipe. It is 100% Shannon Messenger’s.

Here’s the recipe!

Mallowmelt

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter

2 cups butterscotch chips (divided)

2/3 cup packed light brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups miniature marshmallows (divided)

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (divided)

1 14oz can of sweetened & condensed milk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 


Grease a 9×13 inch metal baking pan. 


Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt 1 cup of the butterscotch chips with the butter in the 
microwave. It’s easiest to work in 20 second intervals, stirring in between. Set aside to cool. (Note: Do not over melt! It’s okay if a few lumps remain.)

In a large bowl, stir the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until combined.


In a small bowl, stir the flour, baking powder and salt until combined.


When the butterscotch mixture has cooled, pour into the large bowl and stir to combine 
with the brown sugar/egg/vanilla mixture. Add the flour mixture and stir until just mixed. 


Stir in 2 cups of the marshmallows, 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the butterscotch 
chips.

Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan. Top with the remaining marshmallows, chocolate, and butterscotch chips, scattering evenly. Drizzle entire can of sweetened & condensed milk evenly over the top. 


Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until set. Top will be browned but still quite gooey. Cool, completely (at least 2-3 hours) and serve!


Just reading through that makes my mouth water! And now my stomach is growling. 

And that’s all for today! I know it was a very short post, but maybe you will go and bake this! And if you do, tell us how it was, and maybe even send some pics. I hope it is as good as it sounds in the book! 

This coming Wednesday, I have another post for you that I have also been planning for a bit. Can’t wait to see you guys then!

Keep on fangirling!
