Music is my Muse

Music…

“Music is my muse. It makes me think, it helps me dream, and mostly it gets me through good times and bad. ”  – The Girl with the Ripped Jeans.

As you all know I want to be a writer as I get older and really begin my life as an adult. What I really love doing is writing stories; putting my imagination to the test! 

My story all started..

About two years ago over summer I had the chance to stay at the college near by for six weeks, with a college prep program. They had asked me at the beginning what I wanted to do once I got into college, and as a freshman in high school that is a huge question. They told me that it doesn’t have to be something like a lawyer or a doctor or something over glorified like a model or an actress; it could be something that I just simply love. Which brought me to the answer of being a Writer. During the summer they set me up in an English class along with a bunch of other kids my age and the teacher gave us an assignment. We had to write the beginning of a novel by the end of the summer; so of course I went straight to my  dorm and started brainstorming what I could write about! Nothing was coming to me though, so out of frustration I just grabbed my iPod and started listening to music…That’s when it all happened! Songs were coming on and giving me the greatest ideas. By the end of the summer I had half a novel done! When I turned it in to be corrected my teacher read the beginning of it and sort of looked at me weird.. automatically my heart dropped. Like, “Oh crap I did something wrong!” When I got the paper back a week later he pulled me aside and said, “you have some really nice stuff here. You have some really strong writing and your play on words is just amazing.” After that I knew exactly how I would make something of myself as a writer! Now I am almost done with my novel and I am pretty happy with it. I’ve only ever let three people read it cause I am nervous about letting others read so much of my writing. But you know aren’t songs others feelings put in tune? If they can do it I should be able to, too. (: 

One of my favorite songs is a song by Rascal Flatts; Stand. It’s so amazing every time I listen to it I get butterflies all over and just feel like I am invincible! The whole song is talking about when you have struggles in your life you just have to, “look up decide you’ve had enough; you get mad, you get strong; wipe your hands and shake it off. Than you stand!” You lead your own life. It’s inevitable as to what will happen but you just have to keep holding on, “when push comes to shove, you taste what you’re made of;  you might bend till you break cause it’s all you can take.” This song has inspired me throughout my life to just keep going on. Things can get hard sometimes but you just have to keep going.

Sometimes a form of writing for me is to write songs. If I just need to get something out I grab a notepad and pen and just start writing. Usually the things I am feeling aren’t directly written. The songs have deeper meanings. But music helps me get it out. 

So the next time that you are sad, happy, in love, or just need a great idea to get you through go on the internet and check out some YouTube or grab your iPod and go for a jog. 

“Music is my life, my love, and the greatest gift anyone could give.”

The One Who; Helps Others Dreams Come True

So earlier this week…

My Aunt came over to my house and was raving about this website! She was telling me all about it and how she loves to read my stuff and that she thought that it would be a great idea for me to try it out. Yesterday I finally made one and I am already in love with it. As I was getting used to writing on here and all,  I  suddenly  got a post from awonderouslife, a woman who had commented on one of my posts earlier and helped me continue on with my writing; by giving me that extra little boost, knowing that my writing was good. (: So awonderoulife thank you a million times +1. It’s really heart warming to know that there are already people out there reading my blog and enjoying it for all that I want it to be. To continue, the s’morning I woke up with a little comment on one of my blogs and it was from her; she has nominated me for the Liebster Blog.! I’m no quiet exactly sure what it is as of now but she informed me that to earn this award you have to follow a few simple steps;

1.) Give a shout out to the blogger who nominated you!  So here you are: http://awonderouslife.wordpress.com/ 

I have read some of her stuff and I really like it, she is great so go check her out!

2.) Choose 5 bloggers who also deserve the honor! (forgive me if I nominate someone who has more than 200, as I am new to this site and am not sure how to see if they do or not. I will try my best )

This young lady I believe to be about my age commented on one of my posts yesterday and mentioned that she has been trying to find someone like her on this site; just the kind of person who I am  happy to follow and be followed by haa. She has a great blog that I have enjoyed reading. She also has a lot of great advice! Give her a look at if you would like!

I’m not quite sure if I can nominate someone who has been nominated but you know she deserves to be recognized more than once! Her blog is great; for me being a teenager seeking to help teens I like to look at her blog to get some insight on how adults think and she is very clever and makes me giggle a bit if I do say so myself!

This man in my opinion is very honest! And I like that quality in someone! He seems to just tell the truth in his blogs and though he doesn’t think that he is funny I do (:

One thing you find with me is that I am in love with photography. It’s like telling a story or showing life’s obstacles through the lens of a camera. I like this girl in particular cause she is really good at showing that. Her photography is ahhmazing if I do say so myself. Give her a little looksie!
