//Storytelling+(late) answers for 14 truths and a lie//

hey Hey HEY!

It’s me, the person who hasn’t posted anything for the past seventeen years!

*crickets chirping*

Anyway, I have the answers for this post right here!

To recap, the list was:

  1. I’m a purple belt in Karate
  2. I won my first grade spelling bee
  3. I won 636 swedish fish by calculating the volume of the jar it was in.
  4. I read my first chapter book from the last chapter to the first chapter
  5. I wrote a 26 page story in fourth grade
  6. I’m an ambivert
  7. My neighbor owns a hot air balloon
  8. I make a FANTASTIC peanut butter chocolate chunk oatmeal cookie
  9. I can say the french alphabet six times without taking a breath
  10. The first musical I ever saw was Annie
  11. I used to be on a swim team
  12. I’ve high-fived Taylor Swift
  13. I’ve swam with dolphins
  14. My favorite color is turquoise
  15. My favorite food is gelato

Enni guessed number 9! She is……………………………………..wroooong.

It’s okay, Enni! I made this really hard 🙂

The lie is number 12! I’ve never high-fived Taylor Swift, or met her.

BUT- there’s some interesting stories behind these.

4- The first chapter book I read was the first magic tree house book. I read the first page, found it boring, then skipped to the last chapter and read the book backward.

824734
Throwback 😀

(speaking of throwbacks, my younger sister is playing My Little Pony songs… that’s my sister for you.)

5- In fourth grade, our teacher assigned us to write a two-five page fantasy novel. Since I’m an overachiever, I wrote a twenty six page novel about mermaid twins, an octopus with an afro, and a unicorn. It was set in Underwater Dreamland. I will never share it.

8- I maaaaay have got the recipe off the back of Trader Joe’s Gluten Free oats bag, but hey, it’s good.

11- I started with a couple months of swim lessons, then I decided to swim competitively for a bit.

I quit after a month

13- IT WAS AWESOME the dolphin tried to drown me once BUT IT WAS STILL AWESOME.

15- IT’S SO MUCH BETTER THAN ICE CREAM.

Now some stories-

I was once on a quiz show. There were some hard categories, but then there was a Greek mythology category, and I was like, “YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!! I READ PERCY JACKSON!!!!!” But then…

MY.

BUZZER.

BROKE.

SO I COULDN’T ANSWER ANY OF THE QUESTIONS I ACTUALLY KNEW.

Thankfully, my team answered them all correctly, but still.

This next story happened Thursday. I’m on a Junior Varsity Basketball team for my school, and we were watching the Varsity team play a game. We got to leave fifteen minutes early, so we could make it to the game. I lost track of time, so I left class 10 minutes early instead of 15.

(sorry if this is really confusing)

I’m walking over to the bus stop, and I don’t see the sports bus. I call my friend who’s on the basketball team, but she was at a dentist appointment. I call my other friend, and she picks up. This was basically our conversation.

Me: “Hey, where are you?”

My friend: “We’re driving. We left a couple of minutes ago.”

Me, screaming: “WAIT FOR ME!!!”

My friend: “Sapphire, we’ve literally left the school.”

Me: “I’M COMING!!!”

I start running as fast as I can (which is pretty slow.) When I was three blocks away from the school, yelling “I SEE THE BUS! TELL THE DRIVER TO STOP!” on the phone.

I probably looked insane BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT.

I can hear my friend yelling, “COACH! SAPPHIRE’S COMING! STOP THE BUS!” on the phone.

The bus stopped, and everyone was staring at me as I ran toward the bus. I had my bag in one hand and my coat in the other, so it was kind of hard.

MIRACULOUSLY, I made it onto the bus, then tripped up the stairs.

Oh, the joys of being clumsy.

Those are my stories! Do you have any funny stories? If so, comment them below!

XOXO,

Sapphire

An announcement/my name

Heyo!

I’ve been meaning to share this, but… Sapphire kinda isn’t my real name??

WAIT-I have an explanation

My name’s Persian, so people aren’t really used to it. People used to call me names and tease me. I HATED it.

Thankfully, the teasing has stopped, but I remember when I started this blog I was really scared that people were going to call me mean names online. Obviously, I didn’t know how nice bloggers were.

So I created a new name- Sapphire. As mentioned before, Sapphire is my birthstone, but long ago was thought to guard against evil too. I also love the color.

So when I started this blog, I decided that I was never going to let anyone know that Sapphire isn’t my real name. When I learned how nice everyone was, I felt like the blogosphere needed to know.

I hope you guys understand. 😊 If nobody minds, I still want to go as Sapphire and not my real name. I love the friendships I’ve created through my online pseudonym, so I find the name very meaningful. Thanks for being understanding, and I hope nobody’s upset that I went by a fake name.

 

♡ Things to do to make you happy ♡

 

Hey there!

Recently, life’s been kinda bleh. (I’m looking at you, math homework.)

I’ve compiled some things I like to do when I’m feeling down! These things work for me, but since we’re all different and unique, these things may not be the best things for you.

1. PAINT/DRAW

This might not be that good for you if you’re not super artistic. I find that watercolors are really nice since they’re so soothing and fantastic!

2. BAKE

I find baking to be really cool, especially when you’re experimenting in the kitchen. Also, you get a treat when you’re done! It’s a win-win!

3. DANCE PARTY

This is GUARANTEED to make you happy. (unless you hate music or dancing 😉 ) All you have to do is play some upbeat music and DANCE!

4. PLAN YOUR DREAM SOMETHING

Whether you plan out your dream room, house, or trip to Europe, I find this to be a very exciting activity. If only your plans were a reality… 😀

5. RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

I find that making people happy makes ME happy. An act of kindness doesn’t have to be huge (smiling at a stranger) or something HUGE (giving your best friend a unicorn?)

6. LOOK AT OLD PHOTOS

This always makes me laugh. My old photos involve three year old me making funny faces, smearing cake on my face, and much more. You can collect some of your favorites and frame it in your room.

7. EAT

I think the title speaks for itself 🙂

That’s it! What do YOU do when you’re sad? Comment down below!

XOXO,

Sapphire 🙂

 

NaNoWriMo Update!!

THAT TIME OF YEAR HAS COME!

The time where Sapphire chugs gallons of caffeine to stay awake to write.

The time where Sapphire burns her eyes with the computer screen.

The time where Sapphire never does her math homework because writing is better.

Sadly, this time of year means blogging is probably not going to happen much.

I have a REALLY cool idea for my book (which I’ll tell y’all about AFTER november)

Anyways, that’s it!

WAIT!

I feel the need to share some VERSE I JUST WROTE!

My book is told in multiple POV’s, and one of them is written in verse:

………………….

then that happened

what happened to me wasn’t even that bad

at least

that’s what they say

…………………..

btw this girl has ptsd so yeah

That’s it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

XOXO,
Sapphire

《 A day in the life 》

Heyo!

Did you like the fancy thing I did in the title? I’m TRYING to make my blog look more refined-ish. It’s not really working BUT THAT’S OK!

Anyhooo, I was completely out of blog ideas until I said to myself, “Sapphire. You’ve literally written one blog post. How can you be out of ideas?”

So here you go! This is a day in the life on a weekend day. If I did a day in the life of me at school, it basically be:

6:30- wake up. 6:30 to midnight- SCHOOL/HOMEWORK/A REALLY BAD HEADACHE.

NOW we’ll actually get onto the day! (Sorry that was a long intro)

8:30-9: I wake up. Usually when I wake up, I’ll stay in bed for a bit and read, or check my phone to see if anything happened.

9-9:30: I go to the bathroom, shower, brush my teeth, wash my face, and somehow end up singing Broadway songs.

9:30-10:15: I eat breakfast, which usually consists of eggs, toast, or sometimes pancakes. Today I had hash browns and these really good pita chips I made.

10:15-11: I randomly wander around the house since I’m bored (sadly, this is true.)

11-12: I do something with my younger siblings, like watching a movie or playing a board game or just talking.

12-12:30- LUUUUUUNCH! Lunch varies, but it’s usually pasta, a sandwich, or salad.

12:30-2:30: This is usually the time me and my family go out somewhere. Yesterday we went apple picking. Today were going to a bookstore and a cafe. I’m excited!

2:30-3: This is the time I usually try to clean up my room a bit. Alas, it still looks like a mess.

3-6: What I do here usually varies. I could be kayaking with my friend (I live next to a lake), making friendship bracelets, reading, or just wasting time.

6-7: My family usually eats a really early dinner. Dinner always varies, but yesterday we had this REALLY good lentil vegetable soup (my mouth is watering right now 😂) and pasta with bean burgers instead of meatballs. (I’m pescatarian, so I usually sub meat with a bean burger.)

7-8: I get ready for bed: I put on my pajamas, brush my teeth, etc.

8-11: I STAY UP! I’m a huge night owl! (actually I stay up until 1:00 but putting 11 makes it look like I actually get sleep.) Here I read (books, blog posts, magazines) crochet, write, or just daydream. Then I sleep!

That’s a day in my life! I hope you enjoyed! 😀

XOXO,

Sapphire

FIRST BLOG POST!

Heyo!
This is my first blog (yay!) and I’m REALLY excited!

A proper introduction:

I’m Sapphire Song (sapphire’s also my birthstone!) and I’m an exuberant young teen.  I started blogging because I thought it would be fun, and I want to improve my photography skills with pictures (look out for LOADS of pictures!) I LOVE writing- so you’ll probably see some poems and maybe some chapters of my new novel! Some of my other hobbies include horse back riding. I’ve been riding for about two and a half years, and I love it. There’s a wonderful kind of feeling when it’s just you and your horse. I also enjoy reading and baking, so those topics might pop up in some blog posts.

Some clearing up about my name:

Sapphire is actually not my real name. I have a post more about here!

That’s all for now! Thanks for dropping by, and look forward to posts coming up!

XOXO,

Sapphire Song ❤
