Weird Coincidence

Aloha humans! I was watching JaidenAnimations’ 2016 VidCon overview video when I made a shocking discovery.

They gave her my camera.

JAIDEN HAS MY CAMERA WTF

Okay, obviously not my camera specifically, but literally the exact same kind. (Mine does have the polaroid logo on the front bit, so it’s a bit nicer, but that’s beside the point)

“So what, Lorie? It’s a camera.” I hear you think (yes I can hear your thoughts). WELL, I got my camera because I inherited it! Sorta, she didn’t die but it was a gift from my grandmother that she and my mother both owned. It was one of the best gifts I’d ever gotten, as for years leading up to this I had been obsessed with polaroids.

And it turns out one of my absolute favourite YouTubers has one!

So, that’s pretty cool! Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Random Facts About Me

Aloha humans! I couldn’t think of what to post, so I figure this is the easiest thing to do. Yay!

  • I can’t eat potatoes. If I do, I get nauseous and may puke.
  • I am very awkward, but I will still try to make conversation. Not always successfully
  • I like origami
  • I join fandoms easily but get behind on shows just as easily
  • My favourite show of all time is Gravity Falls and I firmly believe no show will ever top it
  • I love exclamation points. Dunno why
  • I have 3 siblings of which I am the second youngest and the most responsible
  • I like old music (50s to 90s mostly, but swing is good too)
  • I can’t draw well digitally… yet!
  • I have a new aquatic animal obsession every year, but rather than one replacing the other, they stack! These include:
    • Sharks
    • Coelacanths
    • Narwhals
    • Megalodons (I know they’re a type of shark, shush)
    • Giant Oarfish
    • and, of course, Platypodes!
      • I’m aware platypodes are semi-aquatic but they still count
  • My favourite color is green and this has never changed
  • There are no colors I hate, altho there are some color combinations I despise
  • I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life, but the type has changed
  • I can’t paint well
  • I only wrote one thing (not on this blog) that I was proud of. I lost the only copy
    • It was a horror short story based on the Overtoun Bridge. I killed the main character and it had a really good creep factor
      • I wrote it for school, but I didn’t make a very good grade because it was student graded and I left some questions unanswered.
  • One time I met someone in a Discord chat and had a terrible first meeting. Then I met them again a few weeks later and they had forgotten me! I have never been so relieved to be forgotten.
  • I would do nothing but read and draw if I didn’t decide to run this blog. I’m glad I did! It encouraged me to do more stuff.

Well, I think that’s enough for now! Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Singing

Okay, we’ve already established my eclectic taste in music, and anyone who’s been to Bro’s blog knows music runs in the family.

I play ukulele and sing, Lizzie is one of the best singers I know, Bro is a composer, and even Blue loves music even if he isn’t much of a singer.

So, here’s the thing:

I like singing, but I don’t like singing in public. I don’t mind being onstage, I don’t mind it if my siblings are singing too, heck I don’t even mind singing along to the radio in public if it’s playing loudly. The reason I don’t like singing in public is…

it annoys people. I don’t like annoying people. I hate it when people do stuff that annoys me, so I don’t wanna annoy others.

Sometimes I can’t help it though. Yesterday in the grocery store I was singing as I shopped, sometimes at school I would get a song stuck in my head and would need to hum or sing it, and when my friends and I did a sort of public performance in front of a McDonald’s on the way to Corpus Christi.

On Sunday, I wanted to have some alone time. We were at my Mamaw (paternal grandmother)’s house. Whenever we’re outside there, we usually sit under the carport down at the end of the drive way (the driveway is kinday shaped like a y. The front is a circle drive, and a lond straight bit leads to the carport). So, to get away from everyone, I walked around to the front and opened the back of my dad’s car. *He drives one of these:

I think that’s the exact one? it looks very similair at least.)

Then I sat in the big trunk space in the back with my legs sticking out. From there, I could be comfortably outside while it was hot and (in theory) no one would bother me.

After a bit I started singing. Any song that would pop into my head. I was glad to be alone, cuz my siblings would sing along to the ones they knew (which would’ve bugged me at that particular time) and my dad would probably get annoyed. But when I was right in the middle of the chorus of Iris (Goo Goo Dolls) my dad walks around the car to ask where Blue was.

I nearly had a heart attack. However, to spare the moment from being too akward I finished the chorus of the song.

It was awful.

This was another one of those posts that goes nowhere. Sorry about that! Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Yesterday

Wow, only just off hiatus and already missed a day. To be fair, yesterday was pretty crazy. Here’re the highlights:

  • Woke up at 2:30 pm
  • went out to eat with Liz and Mimi
  • Liz and Mimi had a fight on the car ride home
  • Went grocery shopping
  • got home after 11
  • tried to go to bed, couldn’t sleep. (might have something to do with sleeping until 2:30 pm)

So, I’m sorry and I’ll do better in the future!

Food

Aloha! I’ve stayed up late and when I stay up late I encounter a problem. It’s actually a problem I have often, but it’s worse when I haven’t fallen asleep yet.

The overwhelming desire to snack.

At night, I particularly have trouble resisting. This is cuz during the day I wanna snack cuz I’m bored (bad idea, don’t do that), but at night I have specific things I want to eat. Tonight alone I’ve wanted:

  • A cheese panini
  • cookies-n-cream ice cream
  • cheese peanut butter crackers (peanut butter on obnoxiously orange crackers)

I have managed to resist the urge to eat these things using the following thoughts, respectively:

  • too much work for this late
  • Bro bought it so I have to wait ’til he’s awake to ask for some
  • I already brushed my teeth

This didn’t really have a point. Just me struggling. I should really just go to bed.

Anyway, thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Finished Ready Player One!

Aloha humans! I finally finished Ready Player One and I gotta say, it was awesome! It is the new top of my Favourite Books list!

That list now looks like this:

  • Ready Player One
  • Singing the Dogstar Blues
  • Kenny and the Dragon
  • Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection
  • Ender’s Shadow
  • Ender’s Game
  • Hound of the Baskervilles

As you can see, most of these are either Sci-Fi or Sherlock Holmes. However, Kenny and the Dragon is fantasy. I highly recommend every book on this list.

Back to the book I just finished! I was extremely invested, to the point of going largely AWOL online for the past two days. I made time to post, but I didn’t message anyone or keep up with communication (or fanfiction).

I want to avoid spoilers here, so I’ll just say that everyone should read this book. It’s really good (but not for tinies, 13 and up for language and mentioned sexual content)!

Okay, that’s all for now! Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Good Day

Today is a good day. I found a DS charger after failing to do so yesterday, I finished something, Liz made a terrible pun, and I took the fastest shower I’ve ever taken.

I hope allof you are having a good day too!

The only downside is that I have literally nothing interesting to write about.
