Freestyle Writing Challenge!

Thank you Everything And Nothing for nominating me for the Freestyle Writing Challenge, which I think is such an amazing idea! And please go check her blog out because she is fabulous!

The rules are:

1. Open a blank Document
2. Set a stop watch or your mobile phone timer to 5 or 10 minutes, whichever challenge you prefer.
3. Your topic is at the foot of this post BUT DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL YOU ARE READY WITH YOUR TIMER!!!
4. Once you start writing do not stop until the alarm sounds!
5. Do not cheat by going back and correcting spelling and grammar using spell check (it is only meant for you to reflect on your own control of sensible thought flow and for you to reflect on your ability to write with correct spelling and grammar.)
6. You may or may not pay attention to punctuation or capitals.
7. At the end of your post write down ‘No. of words = ____” to give an idea of how much you can write within the time frame.
8. Do not forget to copy paste the entire passage on your blog post with a new topic for your nominees and copy paste these rules with your nomination (at least five (5) bloggers).

I was given the topic of Memories so here we go…

Memories. What would we be without them? Nothing, right? Empty shells wondering around this mortal coil. But what happens when you can’t trust your memories? When people and places warp in your head. If we can’t remember, can we forget? My memories are like that. One day they’re so clear, I know these beautiful faces around me. Then the next they’re taken away. Ripped out from under me until I am alone. So alone.

Sitting in this chair I look at this handsome man sitting in front of me. His eyes so beautiful, like the grass. Or is it the sky? His lips. I remember them kissing me. Why does he make me so happy? What is his name? Carl? Kyle? Kieran?

Dementia. That’s the word he whispers softly to me. What a beautiful name that is.

Number of words: 137 in five minutes.

Here are my nominations:

  1. A Girl With ADHD
  2. The Crazy Perfectionist
  3. The Storyteller
  4. Desire To Express
  5. My Irrelevant Thoughts

And your topic is:


Thanks again for tagging me, and I can’t wait to see my nomination’s answers! Good luck!

Creative Blogger Award!

Wow, thank you so much My Personal Teen Life for the nomination!! EDIT: Thank you to Paradoxical Sadness too! You are fabulous and if any of you reading this have not checked her blog out, do it because she’s amazing! Here are the rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their site. Done 🙂
  • Share five facts about yourself. Okay…
  1. I am a qualified scuba diver. I learnt when I was between 9-12 and can now officially dive anywhere I want in the World without an instructor which I think is pretty cool. Although I do get freaked out easily! For example I was in Egypt just swimming along the sea floor when I saw something move under the sand, turns out there was a massive sting ray right beneath me! So instead of calmly pointing it out to my buddy (because when you scuba dive you always have to go with a buddy) and then calmly going back to the surface, I panicked. And started trying to swim away as quickly as I could, and then I accidently kicked it. Yup, I kicked a sting ray. I feel so bad for that sting ray, he was just chilling and I kicked him right in the face 😦
  2. I’m a little bit of a hoarder. I keep everything. If I think something has sentimental value then I will hold onto it forever. I have endless scrapbooks filled with stuff, I have my box just for memories and souvenirs of the times me and my boyfriend spend together, and then I have The Wardrobe. My wardrobe door is covered in stuff, from postcards to tickets to stickers to photos. In 7 years my wardrobe door has become so layered with stuff that it’s impossible to see any of the paint, and I’m quite proud of it!
  3. I am very mature. And I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not, but it’s true. I look 12 but act like a 40 year old. When I was 10 I was looking after my little brother before and after school, which meant packing lunch boxes and making sure his uniform was ready etc. and I think that made me grow up pretty fast. But I personally am glad I’m mature because it’s stopped me doing a lot of stupid things, and I think I’m further in life because of it.
  4. I love watching TV programmes about hospitals. It doesn’t matter if it’s a soap like Holby City, a comedy like Scrubs, or a documentary like 24 Hours in A&E, I’ll watch them all. I think I’ve always been fascinated with hospitals, and I think that’s the main reason why I want to go into a career involving studying diseases. Because I love the idea of being the person who can help someone who’s scared and ill, I want to know that my actions have saved lives.
  5. My blood type is B+. This is a bit of a weird fact, but I found out that my blood type is B+ and this makes me insanely happy. It sounds like ‘Be positive’ and I like to think that my body was born to be happy 😛
