On Monday I wrote a post about 2 groups of people I would love to read my blog and I decided it would be fun to list a few people who I think and/or wish didn’t read my blog.
Family-Lets just say if they didn’t read this or I didn’t have to worry about them finding this blog I would have more topics to write about because there are so many posts that I write but can’t publish because I don’t want to have to worry about drama or my grandparents getting mad.
People who I have had to stop being friends with because I couldn’t take any more of their drama or bad choices in my life any long.
People who feel that everyone who places their children for adoption were forced into placing them or tricked into placing them.
People who make it their life to make others feel bad about themselves. I have never had this done to be and I don’t know that I would bother me but it would drive me up the wall.
Those are just a few of the people that I wish didn’t or wouldn’t read my blog. I am sure the longer I think about it I will have more people that come to mind but these ones are the ones I worry the most about.
This week for the writers workshop I am going to write about number one which is: A movie you loved as a child. There are a few movies that I loved as a child so I am going to post a few of the ones that I loved.
The first one that came to mind when I read this post had to be the movie “Labyrinth“.
Even now when I watch this movie it makes me smile and I am not 100% sure what it is about this movie that I loved so much. It has David Bowie in it and if you haven’t seen it then I think it is worth watching if you want a good laugh.
I have tried to watch this movie as an adult and I am not sure what I liked about it because I literally can’t get through watching the movie now. I remember parts of this movie but everytime I try and watch it now that I am an adult I turn it off because it is that bad.
There isn’t much to say about this movie because I love it that much. When it was realised a few years ago on DVD I bought several copies because the VHS I had broke and I didn’t want to be without it again. I basically have the whole movie memorized and yet I still get excited if I see that it is on TV. To me this will always be a classic movie.
I still love this movie and I watch it all the time. It did take until I was an adult to get everything that was really going on in the movie. Once I realized what was going on in the movie I loved it even more. I have always loved WWII so that made me love the movie even more.
Those are the four movies that came to mind right when I read the prompt.
What movies did you love as a child?
This weeks prompts
1.) A movie you loved as a child.
2.) Write a post inspired by the word: lost.
3.) Five of your current favorite things.
4.) Pinterest inspired! Share a pin you actually tried. How did it go?
This was a prompt from the writers workshop a few weeks ago and I wanted to write about it because I always complain about living in Utah but there are some great things about living here as well. I am going to list a few of the reasons that I love living in here and why.
I love that we have all four seasons. I know I always complain about how hot summers are and how cold it is in the winter but it is so nice to have all 4 seasons and not just one or 2 of them.
It is super pretty here almost all year around because of the changing seasons.
I love the mountains and I can’t imagine living in the midwest where it is basically flat.
I love all the different things you can see and do in Utah.
For the most part I love the majority of the people who live here. There are some people who I can’t stand but for the most part people aren’t to bad here.
I love that I am not looked at funny when people find out I chose not to drink alcohol. I did drink at one time but now I really don’t see the point in it.
I love going to Temple Square at Christmas time and looking at all the lights they put up.
The last thing reason I love living here is I am comfortable being here since I was born & raised here. I know that is a silly reason but for me that is a huge thing because I hate change.
Those are 8 reasons I love living in Utah. Why do you love the state you live in?
When I saw this was one of the prompts for the writers workshop I knew I had to write about it. The prompt I chose this time is 5.) List 8 books you’ve read that you think everyone should read in their lifetime. I have read tons of books in my lifetime and I am going to list 8 of the ones that I have read so far that I think everyone needs to read. I chose all these books for different reasons and I will write that next to the title & author of the books.
1984 by George Orwell- I read this book when I was in high school and I find it crazy how some of the things that happened in this book are happening in our country now. I think that everyone needs to read this book because it is an amazing book and it is an eye opener.
Fearless by Eric Blehm-This is about one of the Navy Seals from Seal Team 6 that went in and killed Osama Bin Laden. He was shot during the firefight and this is a story written about his life. I cried through parts of this book because he had an amazing story and I feel so bad for his wife and children who lost him way too soon.
The Milestone Tapes by Ashley Mackler-Paternostro- I am not sure if I can even tell you how much I loved this book. I cried through a lot of this book and I still loved it. It is an amazing story and something I think I would do if I had young children and knew I was going to pass away from cancer before they children had grown to be an adult. She basically makes tapes for her daughter for all the big things she knows her daughter will go through as she is growing up without her.
Stress Test by Richard L. Mabry- I put this one on here because I love a good medical thriller and this one delivered on that. If you lost suspense/thrillers than I know you will love this one. (If you click on the title you will be directed to my review on this book)
Anomaly by Krista McGee- I think everyone should read this one because it is about a dystopian society but it brings God into the story and I loved that about this book. The next book in the series comes out in January and I can’t wait to read it.
The Beloved Daughter by Alana Terry-I just read this book recently and I have to say that I loved everything about it. I loved learning about what was going on during this book and I also had to wonder how many people really lived this story. It take place in North Korea and it broke my heart to read and I was also sad because you don’t know what really happens at the end.
The Girl In The Box by Sheila Dalton- I read this book a few years ago and I really enjoyed it because like the book The Beloved Daughter I have to wonder how many people really live like this and how many times things like this happen to people.
Defending Jacob by William Landay- I loved this one because you get to see how some people think and you also get to see what some people will do for their children. I don’t know if my child did something like his does I am not sure how I would handle it and what I would do.
Do you have any suggestions for books that I should read?
This week for the writers workshop I am going to write about number 4 which is something you’re thankful for this week. I chose this one because Thanksgiving is coming up in the United States. I see on Facebook that people post one thing each day that they are thankful for so I figured that I would post a few things I am thankful for.
I am thankful that I have a job and through that job I am able to have health insurance.
I am thankful for my grandparents who are letting me stay with them because I don’t make enough to pay rent and I make too much to live in the low income apartments. (Even though some people think that I am staying there because I am lazy)
I am thankful that the Multiple Sclerosis isn’t as bad as it could be and that unless I tell you I have it you can’t tell because I don’t “look sick”.
I am thankful that I learned the the majority of my family is full of shit and I can ignore what they say because it doesn’t matter.
I am thankful that my grandparents took my brother and I in when we were younger and that they raised us.
I am thankful that I only had to work 3 days this week so I get a 4 day weekend.
Those are just a few things I am thankful for today. What are you thankful for today?
