Short Story: Heroism in the Midst of Stupidity

Guess who finished school two days early! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Yep, this girl.  One of my final assignments was a short story on heroism and I'm really proud of how it turned out so I'm sharing it with you guys. ^-^ Hope you enjoy! <><><> “Hey Tim, did you ask your parents if you can go to camp this year?” Timothy was standing in front of his locker, taking one final look at the small space that had housed his school supplies for almost two years now. Only one more year before he graduated elementary school. Lilly elbowed him gently. “Yeah. Sign-ups close in a week.” Lilly and Kai had been bugging him since February about attending the camp they participated in every year: Camp Eagle. “Not yet.” Timothy slammed his locker door shut, heaving his backpack higher on his shoulder. “Come on, pleaseee?” Kai put on a mock puppy-eyes face to emphasize his question. He smiled laughingly at them both and playfully socked Kai. “Okay, fine. I’ll ask them today.” “Yes! Thank you! You won’t

Small Update!

Hey guys! So as you may have noticed, I didn't post last week or yesterday. That is the fault of this nasty creature you may have heard of called "school."  Anyway, as the title says, I have a small update for you all. I will not be posting until June. I need to really be focusing all my attention on my finals as the school year wraps up, plus we have a camping trip at the end of the month and that takes a lot of prep when you're in a big family. I wish you all luck on your own finals and in life in general and I'll see you next month! Until next time, Farren ♡

Goals for May 2021

  Another month is gone and a new one in its place. The school year is coming to a close and man, I cannot wait for summer break.  Camp NaNo ended yesterday and I'd say it went a lot better than November's NaNoWriMo. I gave myself a few goals for the month but completed little to nothing of them. I did complete Camp with 16K out of my goal of 20K, which is a lot more than I expected to get.  My May goals are nothing much, as I will have to focus most of my time on homework. I'm hoping to devote a little more time to finishing the books I am currently reading, but I doubt much will be done. My writing goals consist of a total word count goal of 20K and finishing the plotting and worldbuilding of my WIP, ATOR.  Have a lovely week! Until next time, Farren ♡

A Reintroduction

Hey guys! It has been a good three months since I last posted. Wow. A lot has happened since then. So, consider this a reintroduction.  To start out, you can call me Farren. I'm a writer, a reader, an artist, and a Christian. My enneagram type is 5w6, my MBTI is INTP, my Hogwarts house is Slytherclaw (a Slytherin-Ravenclaw mix), and my Divergent faction is Erudite. I like rainy days, castles, dragons, pirates, books, sewing, tea, photography, dark academia, cats, dancing, forests, poetry, and exploring. My favorite movies include Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jurassic Park and World, and Star Wars. My favorite books consist of I Capture The Castle (Dodie Smith), Sweep (Jonathan Auxier), Book Of A Thousand Days (Shannon Hale), the Harry Potter series (JK Rowling), and many others in genres such as dystopian and fantasy.  *brushes hands off* Now that proper introductions have been made, I have some updates to go over.  First off, I'm going to try to p

Happy 2021 (plus a blog tag!)

*runs in* *skids a bit too much and crashes into the wall* *runs back to where I’m supposed to be* heyoooo guys~! Sorry that this post is so late! Happy 2021! Wow. 2020 is over and done with. “Well, that was very anticlimactic.” -Literally every movie like ever <><><> 2020 was definitely a hard one for all of us — some more than others. Anxiety and depression fell like a thick curtain over us all. Isolation is a less than ideal place to be. We’ve all learned that in one way or another this year. 2020 started out as an amazing year for me. I turned 14 mid-January. I started hanging out twice as much with my best friend. I joined the student leadership committee at my youth group. I had a surreal time at camp with my friends. Life was finally turning up for me. I was getting the hang of my classes. I was making new friends. It couldn’t have gotten better than that. March seventeenth. My friend texts me, “Hey! Have you heard about the new executive order?” And, of course

I Am Thankful For…

 Anddd, I knew this would happen. *facepalm* Sorry for not keeping with my intended schedule, guys. Life’s been pretty crazy lately, what with school starting up again and then preparing for Christmas.  I am thankful for internet. Without it, I wouldn’t be able to contact my friends, access my homework, or go to virtual classes.  ~ Farren
