Go Ask Alice (Book Review Time!)

Image
So I finally decided to read this famous I-screwed-up-my-life book. I was very excited getting my hands on it. After all it has millions of fans worldwide so it must be something! But after reading the first page I knew I was in for a surprise. This was not at all what I expected. It was very snippy, vague and left me yawning A LOT. I ended up just smoking a lot of weed (as you can see by the picture) trying to get through the snoozefest. Alice is ridiculous. How do you go from getting a slip of acid into a full blown junkie just in the blink of an eye? And what's with the annoying repeated words that SO does not read like a teen girl's thoughts by the way. I gave it a two on Goodreads because much like the ending, the whole thing can be summed up by two words: abrupt and disappointing. 2 outta 5 stars.

"You are not that pretty"

If you are anywhere near Twitter you would have probably realized by now that one of the most popular hashtags currently running is #FreeKesha. Even celebrities like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga, and Demi Lovato are all offering their support for the damsel in distress. So what exactly is going on? Who is telling the truth? Kesha or this Dr. Luke character? There is so much to this puzzling, scandalous story. There is the fact that Kesha swore under oath that Dr. Luke did not rape or "roofied" her. This came after the shocking allegations that he had. But why the change in her story?

"He threatened her and she equivocated because she was under threat. This is a desperate attempt on their part to blame the victim," Kesha's lawyer Mark Geragos told The News.

The sadness resurfaced on Friday when the court denied Kesha release from her contract under the Sony umbrella, whom her alleged abuser produces for. Dr. Luke claims that Kesha's…

Little Fingers

There once was a girl. She had no friends. So she sat in her room all sat and told the cat she would create them. Well days went by and no one heard from her. No one checked what she was doing in that room until long after when a foul smell started to come from it. They went inside and observed each of her little fingers wound with a knot of hair. "Well who did the right hand?" asked the detective.


Fantastic Creepy Art

I love looking at creepy illustrations whenever I write. Today I am going to talk about one artist that really influence my work as an author.

Danish artist John Kenn Mortensen is absolutely one of my favourite artists, who serves me endless inspiration. He draws these spooky, super creative and intricate pieces that will leave you covered in goose pimples and gaping in awe, and all on yellow sticky notes. Isn't that so crafty? Check these babies out. If you want to see more of his work just go to his blog. 




Today's Bible Verse

Know in your heart that the Lord your God corrects you as a parent corrects a child. Obey the commands of the Lord your God, living as he has commanded you and respecting him. Be careful not to forget the Lord your God so that you fail to obey his commands, laws, and rules that I am giving to you today. If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship them and bow down to them, I warn you today that you will be destroyed.

What To Do When You Have The Munchies!

So you know that feeling. You just smoked up, just got baked in the most lovely way... You are drifting off on a cloud and feeling so chill the bills and irritating co-workers just don't concern you any more. But suddenly there is a loud growl and it's not coming from a bear outside, but from YOUR STOMACH!!! And then a feeling hits you, you wanna run to McDonald's, you wanna grab the cell phone and order that large hot box of pizza to wolf down by yourself. You've got "The Munchies." Food never tasted so good. While it could be fun to pig out sometimes, you don't want to make this a habit, or pig out on the wrong foods. Hello unhealthy! And if you're like me you will be just piling on unwanted pounds. And if you are even more like me (who is broke broke broke) you would rather not pig out at all because food can be, well, EXPENSIVE. $$$ With that in mine, here are some tips and tricks, I stick to, and you can use for kicking those munchies to the curb…

"OH MY GOD I HAVE NO FRIENDS!!!"

"Oh my God, I have no friends." Is that you? Well no worries my friend. You're in good company. A lot of successful people were loners. Michael Jackson, Beatrix Potter,  J.D Salinger, Issaac Newton, Joe DiMaggio, Emily Dickinson, and even Marilyn Monroe, were all loners and social outcasts in one way or the other. But it sucks doesn't it? Yeah yeah. It get's... well... lonely. But have no fear my friend. You can be your own best friend! And there are a lots of things you can do when you have no friends.

REALLY BAD Trip And... Good Trip? All In One?

You can def have a bad trip smoking weed. Even a little bit of weed. I swear by kush but smoking too much marijuana or the strain that is not right for you can have its negative side effects. And they can be DRAMATIC. So I wanted to tell you about my bad trip. Well I ordered some chocolate kush from an online medical marijuana provider (got my green card and everything) and was really excited to try it out; so excited I decided to get my entire family involved (not knowing the worst day dream/nightmare will soon come knocking). I was laughing and force-feeding the marijuana-laced chocolate to my mom and dad.

It seemed super exciting at first: me, I was gonna get friggin high with my parents yo how dope is that? But then in attempt to persuade them to take more, I just kept eating and eating the chocolate not realizing that I was on the verge on FREAKING OUT in trippy dippy psychedelic land. And ohhhhh it was not good. Ever heard of the saying: "It is like hell on earth." Yea…

Aspiring Author

The quote of today: "Do everything with patience and care" by Shelby Lamb --me! Haha. Anyway writing is my passion and I don't care if I never do anything else in life because I've been too busy writing. I hardly fit in socially ANYWHERE. I've never had a serious relationship. I am just an outcast BUT... I don't care writing/my books are the loves of my life. Writing.. It is just that important to me. Being the loner that I am I just find it so relaxing and healing to vent my deepest, darkest emotions through stories. Now here is the thing. I have a book that I have been working on for over five years. Blood sweat and tears. I am finished with it now. And am going through the process of finding agents to publish the traditional way. My eyes are currently BURNING from going through all their submission guidelines and blah blah blah/ sending out stuff. *Sighs and sips bedtime tea* Well I have some hope if this route does not work out. I have been talking to ano…
