I was going through my old poetry and found this. It’s so powerful and profound to me. I wonder why I never posted it on here before. I wrote it right before I started my freshman year of college in 2011. Enjoy. :)
This is my most recent story written for my Intro to Writing Fiction course. Enjoy! :)

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift
Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary
Scrat the prehistoric squirrel is back with his nutty antics. While trying to store his acorn, he causes a continental cataclysm, which disrupts mammoth Manny (Ray Romano), Ellie (Queen Latifah), Peaches (Keke Palmer), sloth Sid (John Leguizamo) and saber-tooth tiger Diego’s (Denis Leary) community. After a massive earthquake, Manny, Sid, Diego, and Sid’s granny (Wanda Sykes) are set adrift on a piece of ice across the sea, while Ellie and Peaches lead the rest of the community to a landing that is supposed to be safe. The main theme is for the odd herd to find their way back home. Along the way, they run into an ice pirate ship captained by the cruel ape, Gutt. Gutt’s second-hand crewmate is a saber-tooth tiger by the name of Shira (Jennifer Lopez) who seduces Diego. The underlining theme is about Peaches trying to fit in with the other teenage mammoths that think she is weird from being half possum. Peaches’ crush, the popular mammoth Ethan, threatens herself to change who she is. This wacky adventure of Manny, Sid, and Diego involves sirens, Sid’s granny’s pet Precious, and little native rodents. Dreamworks does it again in the franchise’s fourth film with the hilarious, relatable dialogue. The ending credits include a wonderfully catchy song of all the characters about the love of family. A-

Over the summer, I was interning at Hudson Valley Parent Magazine. My job was to review summer family films. This is the first of the three films I reviewed. It is directed more towards parents. The other two films I reviewed (that will be posted later this week) are “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift” and Disney’s new princess, “Brave”. Enjoy! :) Continue reading “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” Film Review
First of all I’d like to wish my blog, Fairytales, a happy second birthday! It’s a little delayed I know. It was September 2nd. Either way, Happy Birthday to Fairytales!
Also, today is my nineteenth birthday! (: I don’t feel any different than I did yesterday when I was eighteen, but I guess you never really do feel older on your birthday unless your back suddenly starts hurting and you wake up three inches shorter. Which will probably happen to me. The women in my family are known to shrink as they get older. Great. So my already short 5’2″ figure will get even smaller as I get older.
My boyfriend, Ben, is taking me out for dinner tonight. Even though it’s already seven pm. We’re having a late dinner considering we had classes all day. We’re going to go to a Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar. I’m excited for delicious food! :)
Hope you all have a great night. I know I will! :)

As you can tell, a lot of the things that comfort me are nature and food. But what do you expect? They both can be quite beautiful. The reason why I made this list was for the benefit of myself and the people I know. However, writing this did comfort me, so that should be number 30. I guess making lists comfort me because I feel organized and not overwhelmed, which induces relaxation. Now I’m just rambling on crap.
Just a heads up: I doubt I will posting as much as I have in the past because I just started my fall semester of my sophomore year. Exciting! The two classes I’m most excited about is English 209 (Intro to Writing Fiction) and Journalism 110 (Intro to Journalism). So I’ve definitely thought about my career choice and becoming an editor or publisher seems more logical than a professional author. But that doesn’t mean I’m giving up my dream. I just probably won’t publish my first novel until I am a mother. But to be honest, I’m alright with that, because do you know hard it is to publish a novel? Just having one novel will be a big enough accomplishment on it’s own. So whoopdeedoo for future me.
Hope you all have enjoyed you summer. It’s almost September. Which means that it’s almost my 19th birthday! (: YAY! I hope the sun comes shining through the dreary clouds that surround my campus…
You are the shine in the sun.
You are the whispers in the wind.
You are the butterfly at the bush.
You are the figures in the clouds.
You are the waves crashing in.
You are the laughter that I hear.
You are the smile on my face.
You are the sparkle in my eye.
You are the perfection of the moon.
You are the lights in the night sky.
You are the motion of the current.
You are the softness of the sand.
You are the goosebumps on my body.
You are the tangles in my hair.
You are the salt in the sea.
You are the mist of the water.
You are the warmth inside of me.
You are the love inside my heart.
You are the mate to my soul.
You are the matching beat to my heart.
You are the best thing that has ever happened to me.
You are the love of my life.
