This month was kind of sucky, but hey there were still a few things to celebrate.

I actually have over 60 followers on this blog now, but when I reached fifty earlier this month I was so happy. I’ve been blogging for almost a year now, and to reach over 60 followers, I mean it’s great to think that people actually want to hear what I have to say and like my posts and ugh thank you so much.

WC Week 7

65-wc-week-7

Week 7, already completed and on to the next assignment. This week it was all about Dialogue; direct and indirect dialogue, as well as looking at elaborate and simple tags. The assignment focused on accents and accurately depicting two foreign accents that would be written phonetically.

Which is more difficult than it sounds, especially since I’ve never been exposed to many foreign accents other than what I’ve seen in movies or read in books. I tried though and I kind of like how it turned out, the accents are supposed to be French and Russian, but like I said it was more difficult than I originally thought to convey the accents in written form, so no hate, I tried ok….

Designing Characters

64-characters

I’ve talked about characters before, but I wanted to mention it again, because when it comes to writing, I love designing characters and figuring out their personalities and how they look, and then describing them. And I did this in my writing course, but it was before I started blogging about it, it was Week 3’s assignment and this is what I wrote…

Writing Course: Week 6

Week 6, already, only five more weeks to go…

This week’s focus for my Writing Course was tone and style, as well as description. And of course, the first part of the assignment we had to differentiate between Tone and Style, and I found this to be really difficult because in order to write well, you need both. Style develops overtime as you get better at writing, you find your own voice/style as a writer, and tone sets the mood of the writing, but I believe that you almost always have both in a single piece of writing and I had to somehow distinguish between the two, I did it, and I’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out.

Clothing Haul+Favourite Outfits

If you don’t already know, I live in Canada and while some days it can be quite mild, it can also drop t0 -20 degrees Celsius overnight. So that means fashion may have to take one for the team and settle on comfy sweaters and leggings most days. But that’s the whole point of layering right? Today, I’d like to share some of my recent purchases and how I like to wear these items during the cold winter months.

Item #1- A good pair of Winter Boots

Writing Course: Week 5

63. WC Week 5.jpg

Last week I received full marks on my assignment and quiz, and now the focus is on Point of View.

We spent maybe one day on this in my high school course, going through the different types (first, second, and third person), and then wrote a short piece using the second point of view, given that it’s the least popular and probably the most difficult one to do.

I find it interesting how some types become popular at certain times, while others are rarely used. For example, first person is extremely popular right now; I can barely pick up a novel without it being written in first person. But a while ago books were written in third person either as limited perspective or omniscient.

Favourites: Beauty and Skin-Care

62-beauty

I don’t wear makeup, and I never really have. Sure, I went through that phase in 8th grade where all I wanted to do was wear makeup; I wore blue eye shadow, and put on mascara so horribly I hardly realized it, but hey it’s part of growing up.

But I stopped wearing makeup, mostly because I didn’t understand the need for it. Going through that process every morning is way too time-consuming for me; I always thought I had better things to do than worry about my appearance. Even when it comes to clothing, I figure as long as I buy nice-looking clothes, it won’t matter what I throw on in the morning.

The thing is I do care about to a certain extent how I look, everyone does, and I have found some pretty awesome skin care products and decided to share them with you, so let’s jump into it….
