Shenanigans Saturday

Prompt 3

What is your favorite work of art? What do you love about it?

Wow! I have never really had to think about this before.  I know I am definitely a sucker for surreal landscape art.  Not too sure the word for it but really it is the unrealistic paintings done to make you imagine what it is and I like that.  When art can make you wonder and experience something entirely unique to you and send you somewhere else, that is what art and paintings should do, at least for me.

Here are a few artists and their works I love:

Shenanigans Saturday

Prompt 2

“Have you ever spoken up when you saw something going on that was wrong? Were you scared? What ended up happening?”

Since Sophomore year in high school I have been away from any social situation, being home-schooled and all, so it has been difficult for me to really have any opportunity at all to defend anyone.  However, when I was little and in elementary school, roughly 3-5 grade, I always stood up for those around me that I felt was badly mistreated,  Literally my fellow classmates, some of which I never really considered friends, would come to me when they needed someone to back them up, listen to them, or face someone who has done something horrible to them.  One instance I remember was when this girl and boy were arguing I stepped in the middle and mediated.  I wasn’t really scared but more upset if anything.  They both ended up hating me as well as each other, but I felt good about myself for having stepped in, made me a “loser” in everyone’s eyes but I know I did the right thing for standing up for the right and trying to help them both see each other’s sides, to help them understand what was really going on.  Even though because I did that everyone thought I was “uncool” I don’t regret doing the right thing…ever!

Another instance I think of was when I was in Junior High school a bunch of the kids in my class were pouring mustard on snails and because I’m a big believer of not causing living things unnecessary pain I tried to pry them off and I was yelling and screaming at them, they called me stupid or weird because I defending a snail.  But I knew what I felt was right and doing that to any living creature is wrong in my eyes I stood up for the right thing.

*Note: Prompts courtesy of the 300 Writing Prompts book that I bought from Barnes and Noble.  Every Saturday I will write a prompt or something interesting, just a bunch of shenanigans really.  Hope you enjoyed today’s prompt.  Let me know if you ever stood up for something you believed in and what happened I would really like to know! Hope you are having a greatly blessed weekend filled with Love and happiness.

All my everlasting peace and love to you all,

Rants, Raves, and Shenanigans

Rants, Raves, and Shenanigans NOT! Sorry 😦

I have been so busy the last few days, and especially yesterday to the point where last night I was in so much pain I did not go to sleep till 3 in the morning haha YAY me!

So I did not prepare for today’s entry buuuut I did, however, write a little something from this book I just got called “300 Writing Prompts” so I figured the days where I don’t post anything at least I’ve got something coming to you guys. Or to whomever reads my stuff haha.  Saturday entries were supposed to be more “diary/journal” like anyway so I figure this would be a great substitute and who knows maybe I’ll start doing these more often 🙂

And as for my “Friday Fashion” entry I’ll hopefully be finishing it and posting it by Monday of next week. So look forward to that pwease 😉

What is your favorite way to spend a lazy day?

Lazy days always start out late.  “Never set an alarm” is a rule you must follow.  I get out of bed and then quickly fall back in cuddling with my favorite stuffed animal, a 26 year old monkey named Keys.  But eventually I am ready to get dressed, wash, and play with my makeup.  Really it is a new obsession.  Play with looks I normally would never do.  Trying different things is fun especially when you have no real please to be or anyone to impress.

Whilst all of this is going on I am either listening to my own “In My Room” playlist, or I am watching a playlist from YouTube.  Lately it has been CutiePieMarzia, love her to death.  Inspiring!  Then after I’m dong with all that I’m either fumbling around trying to find something to watch on TV or playing with video games.  Nintendo 3DS represent!  And XBox 360 as well.

I always try to stay busy and entertained and I love pampering myself, so I’ll always probably give myself a mani/pedi while I’m at it.

Always being good to myself and having fun.  No time like now to enjoy your own company.
