Without Limits

Well, thanks to my wonderful English teacher Mr Hampstead I’ve found a truly horrible thing; A maximum word limit.
Having to write a short sci-fi story sounded great, until, I realised that the word limit was 800-1000 words.

My chapters go on for over 2000 words.

The Path through the Trees is highly incomplete, and yet is 39949 words long.

The Forgotten Realm is one quarter complete and 28339 words long.

This story can be no longer than 1000 words.

So unfair.

However, this trial has inspired me to write a poem. I hope you like it! And I'm dedicating it to Jane, who I believe will agree with me and be grateful she doesn't go to a real school.

Without Limits

I stretch to the sky, my heart soaring above,
The chances are endless,
The life of the Limitless.

Can a character have feeling,
Or grow to be the best,
If we’re not Limitless?


Sooo, what d'ya think? Any good?

Sonnet of Sickness

Well, you may have guessed by the title that I'm sick.
I hate being sick.
The only thing worse than being sick is not being able to walk while being sick.
I can't walk either.
It sucks, really badly.
As in, I'm sooo bored. And I can't talk. Or walk. So, never mock sickness people! It is TERRIBLE!!!!!

So, to my sickness I was inspired to write a poem, and as I have not said anything on this for a fair while... I figured you may all think I was dead, not that I'm too far off it. Anyway, onto the poetry!

A Sonnet to Sickness

When in my life things are going too well,
My dear friend sickness must interfere.
Alike the call of Death I hear your bell,
The fever, tiredness, nausea nears.
Closer and closer it stalks to its prey,
Savoring the moment of victory.
Through the immune system it finds its way,
And gloats over me in twisted glory.
It inflicts such pain, such disease, such grief,
Never again shall I gain a night's rest,
"Weaker the less time they sleep,"is its belief,
And of good tactics it must be the best.
Alas, illness, please leave me to be!
Not once again shall you take hold of me!

Hmm, not brilliant, but is it any better than the Path Through the Trees poetry? I really hope it is.

I'm Back

Yes! I am hopefully back for good.
Now, of late I have been doing lots of school work. I have over 12 assignments due in the next 2 weeks! The other day we went caving to anyone who knows me, this is a strange thought. For the sake of those who don't know, I'm claustrophobic. But I still did it, and I'm alive, so, maybe caves aren't tooo dangerous...

Now, I believe I owe you all some poetry.
Here we go...

His Hands

The hand's that grasped at,
His mother's arms were tender,
Hands so small,
Mary did you ever,
Wonder what those hands,
Had come to do/

The hands of a carpenter would,
One day lift us up and should,
We sin again He would,
Banish our sins for good.

The hands that held our sins were pierced,
Nailed to the cross by our rage so fierce.

Now... the one you've been waiting for...

The Path Through the Trees 

Annette went to a tunnel,
She had to find Maria,
To free her from prison
To free her from her sister.

Meanwhile, Lydia worked hard,
She turned into a farmer,
She then thought of Annette,
And decided to find her.

Oh... I've been Tagged with Infinite Dreams...

I just realised how few blog posts I've been doing. I am soo sorry! I keep doing it. But I've just started at a new school, half moved in to board in town and gotten a teacher that speaks Sindarin ( for those unelvish people, that's elvish!) He addressed the class by saying, "Ai!" (Hail!) I replied in kind. He is such a cool teacher! He started talking to me in the language and then I realised why it didn't sound quite right. I know Quenya elvish. Oh well... he's still cool.
Josie W, a friend of mine, came Black Berrying with my family on the weekend and we picked the most berries! Mostly because we were lowering me INTO the bushes. I got really torn up...
Now, as you read in the title (if you read the title:D) I have been tagged by my lovely cousin Jayne... sorry Jain, I mean Gaen, I mean Jane. :) OK, to the post!


1. Use the Infinity Dreams Award picture
2. Thank the blogger who tagged you
3. Tell us 11 facts about yourself
4. Answer the 11 questions
5. Tag 11 as many as you desire of bloggers
6. Ignore the rules that I invented if you wish to do so

There was no rule to say you couldn't change the rules...

He he, I should probably start. 
Thanks Jane!


1 I like music
2 According to four different online quizzes I'm an elf
3 I'm severely claustrophobic
4 I'm completely insane. (as in, I'm seriously considering to request Granny to bring back some of Uncle Paul's Rocket Fuel)
5 I'm learning Quenya Elvish
6 I have eight cousins
7 I dislike sweet, artificial, or processed food.
8 My middle name, Ann, is spelt WITHOUT an 'e' !
9 I love writing
10 I love reading even more
11 I have taken 2 hours and 27 minutes to do all of this so far.
NOTE: I deleted half of it at one point.

ELEVEN QUESTIONS (why is it always 11!)

Are you guilty of hitting anyone uncommonly hard over the head?
That is a broad question. I guess I have some hard headed friends/cousins who my think my hitting is hard... I guess you could say that I'm mildly guilty.

A calorimeter holds 175.0 grams of water at an initial temperature of 25.3 °C. A 54.3 g piece of metal at 100.0 °C is dropped into the calorimeter, and the final temperature of the water is 27.1 °C. What is the specific heat of the metal? (*Evil laughs*) (How do you like the sound of Chemistry?)
Hmm, I'd assume that the piece of metal was taken to 98.2 degrees Celsius. And I don't overly like Chemistry.

What's the most expensive thing you've ever bought/are saving up to buy?
$300 Silky chikens, one of which I believe is slowly dying (Never call a rooster Malfoy!)

Have you ever injured yourself in a really silly way?
Sorry, but is it possibly to injure yourself in a serious way? Yes. Do I have to elaborate? Ok, I guess I will. At a youth camp, we were playing beach rugby. This involves all of the normal tackle rugby rules, but knee deep in water. Well, I made the mistake of picking up the ball, and running with it. About seven people tackled me, but I managed to pass the ball to a team mate. But then they fell on top of my head, and, knocked me out. I'm not sure what happened, but all of a sudden I was on the shore having CPR. I wasn't sure what the fuss was about, I don't remember anything!

 Do you have some specific aim for the future?
To survive.

What's a movie you really like?
The Guardian of the Energy Crystal.

What's a book that you've dreamed about?
The Silmarillion. I always die in my dreams.

If you woke up in the middle of the night to someone blowing a party blower in your ear, who would you immediately suspect?
Jane Farrelly, Emily Nancarrow, or (unreasonably) Callum Allenson.

What would be your revenge?
That need not be told.

10 If I allowed you a single trip in my TARDIS ('cause it's a well known fact that I'm secretly a Time Lord), where would you want to go? Or more importantly, when?
1 Your not being very secretive if it is a well known fact.
2 That's a big if
3 I'd go to where I am now as that is when I'm meant to be and one can't change the past without mucking up the future. I'm sure God's got it in control, and I'd rather not be near a Time Lord as they seem to attract evil things.

11 What's it like to have a crazy cousin like me?
Nátyë necindo!

Hmm, who to tag... I know! Clare!

Your questions,

1 Do you get sea-sick?
2 Do you have a phobia?
3 Have you ever had a weird dream?
4 If so, what was it?
5 What would you do if you ate something and then discovered that it was poisonous?
6 What are the three most important items in your life. (Not including family, friends or Bible.)
7 Name 3 good books.
8 Name 1 good movie
9 Do you have a favorite word?
10 If so, what is it?
11 Can you answer all of these questions with a minimum of 2000 words?

Good Luck!

Excuses Excuses

I’m back! Sorry that it’s been so long. This time I have an excellent excuse. So, here it is.

Tuesday 22nd of December/ 2015-01-05 – Sunday 27th of December/ 2015-01-05

My cousins came to celebrate Christmas with us. This was a lot of fun, despite the soot that I had to clean off the carpet after Jane went and hid up the chimney. I learnt a new game, Billionaire, and I’ve worked out that I have played it 94 times. Two of my cousins were quite addicted to it, yet they still don’t seem to be able to remember the name.

However, it appeared that my cousins weren’t as innocent as they seemed…

Monday 28th of December/ 2015-01-05 Sunday 3rd of January/ 2016-01-05

I was kidnapped. With just a billum of basic supplies, I was snatched away and put in their car. Strapped to a seat, I was ordered by a two year old to raise and lower my arm when she instructed, lest she begin to scream in frustration. And, while going through that torture, a malicious girl who hid behind a fringe recited to me a series of stories of death, battles, starships, and people falling down big, black holes! This, I had to endure for two and a half hours!

When I refused to break, I was hustled away to be shown my quarters. It appeared that I would be sharing a room with three of my torturers. I began to think that my situation was as bad as it could possibly get, then they arrived. Two small attackers latched upon me, dragging me wherever they desired. And the youngest kept predicting my death, constantly saying “dead Jessie”.

But still more was to come…

Days of being questioned, attacked, drowned and many other trials came to pass. The most memorable occasions will be spoken of now.

Star Wars – Their Force Awakens

Wrapped in a cloak with a hood pulled over my eyes, I was driven to a huge, semicircular, modern day colosseum, to see the battles on a screen. But before we entered to witness the massacre, one of their cohorts came up and photographed us… undoubtedly to send an image to my family, luring one of them to rescue me, so that then they could be captured and used as a lever against me.

Then I was led into the audience to see what would be done to me if I didn’t do as I was ordered. Death, betrayal, loss, murder and heartbreak. Not to mention big, not-so-black, holes.

Blog hijacking

Yes, as you can see, they hijacked my blog. They forced me to type in my password and email then…. they took control of its appearance. A nightmarish event to be sure.

Death sentence – heart attack

 I was whisked away once more, this time to attend a strange celebration of the death of the year 2015. Upon my arrival, I discovered that some of these very people would be staying in the haunted homestead on our property this coming Easter. Many people were there, very few of which I knew. We also performed a ritual that showed whether we were a mafia, a sheriff, a doctor, a suicide bomber, a spy, a baker, or a civilian. We would be told to close our eyes for a time. Not only was everyone out to get me, but during one of the sleeping moments, someone crept up behind me and attempted a real life assassination! I fell to the ground when death screamed in my ear. Laughter was all through the room. Shows how much people will care if I die.

But my revenge upon the two conspirators shall arrive soon. That is not a threat, but a warning.

The rescue… and a war

My parents arrived to rescue me on Saturday eve. But my captors would not surrender easily. A war of soft sponge throwing took place. It was close, but we won. My cousins released me, but not before giving me a terrible illness…

SUNDAY 3RD JANUARY/ 2016-01-05 – Early morning Tuesday 5th of January/ 2016-01-05

Unable to speak.
Unable to eat.
Head pounding.
Body aching.
Throat searing.
Ears screaming.
In time, I healed.

So… does that count as a good excuse? Did I miss any little details?

You probably want a translation. Hmm, I guess you can have one.

My cousins came for Christmas, I spontaneously returned to Tanglewood with them, Ann was amused by my arm raising and lowering, Jane was telling me about episodes 4,5,6 of Star Wars as we were watching 7 soon and I hadn’t really watched them before, we arrived, I was sharing a room with the older girls, the two boys just love to attack me, Ann morbidly likes to call me dead Jessie, we swam a bit and one of the boys had a piggy back in the water… where it was too deep for me to breathe.

I watched Star Wars – The Force Awakens. As we did a wardrobe cos-play, the lady at the movie theater took our photo to put on the movie theater's Facebook page, and in my dark cloak, I looked remarkably (and accidentally!) like a Sith!
They gave my blog a make-over.

Went to a New Years Eve party, played Mafia, had a party blower blown into my ear.

My parents came to pick me up, but we randomly started throwing bits of foamy sponge at each other.

I got sick.

I got better.

See! It doesn’t sound nearly as interesting now!

Well, good bye!

P.S Did you all have a good Christmas?
