My First Short Story- Drowning out the the Thoughts

Helllooooooooooo, 

For todays post I have decided to post my first short story to this blog. It is titled Drowning out the Thoughts. Just like the poem I wrote Sole e Luna (My Poem) I am certainly not a professional author, so if the story has a few faults and isn’t great please do not judge. 

So here it is. I hope you enjoy! 📝

“And the there was this huge explosion! And it went boom, boom, BOOM!” I watched as a buck-tooth child animatedly described a scene from his favourite show to his mother. His eyes gleamed excitedly as he talked, his mother gazing lovingly upon him as he spoke. I turned my head slightly and observed the other people on the bus: The elderly man with the canary yellow hat, the young woman with the continually fidgeting hands and the lady who somehow kept an expressionless face for the entire hour journey. I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket and I was pretty sure I already knew who the text was from. My suspicions were confirmed after a quick glance at the cracked screen. I gnawed at my already peeling lips and tensed, my jaw clenching. I turned the volume up on my iphone, adjusted my oversized headphones, closed my tired eyes and remembered.

The molten beams of the sun illuminated the dew on the grass as I hurried down the pathway of my house, my boots clicking and clacking as I went. My hands rested on the front gate ready to swing it open when I heard a voice. “Where do you think you’re going?” My mother exclaimed, her voice cracking in anger. She folded her arms against her chest and gave me a sharp look. “Outside, Mum.” My fists clenched and my body went rigid. “I am 16 now, you need to let me go out once in awhile! I can’t just stay in this house forever like some sort of caged animal!” I yelled, my normally mellow voice ferocious and strong.

I wiped my teary eyes and turned the volume up even louder in an attempt to drown out all the memories flooding through my mind. I looked to the side and saw the buck-tooth boy having his brown parker being zipped up by his mother. I smiled slightly as I thought about all the times my mum used to do that to my jacket when I was little. My anger was washed away by and replaced by absolute contentment. I nestled into the fabric seat of the bus, closed my eyes and remembered a happier memory as my body swayed to the constant sound of the bus motor….
The aromatic smell of the homemade pizza wafted into my nose as I wiped the river of leftover tomato paste off my hands. My mum burst into a blissful and hearty laugh as she pointed to my nose which little did I know, was speckled with flour. Her laughter was infectious and we kept giggling even after she wiped away the flour. We shared an undeniable love for pizza and always joked that if the base was our canvas the ingredients were our paints.

I was startled out of the joyous memory by the sudden jolt of the bus and the loud hiss of the engine. The mother and son I had been watching intently stood up from their seats and made their way down the centre of the bus, their hands interlocked. Only then do I realize how similar they look. The same amber eyes as big as saucers, the same angular jaw and the same lopsided smile that never seemed to go away, playing on their face.

As they got off the bus, the child noticed a small, black cat with eyes so bright they look like neon signs. He begun to race across the road, intrigued by the sight of it. The mother quickly saw what was going on and pulled him back, milliseconds from being squashed flat by a truck. I audibly gasped and caught a glimpse of the mother’s eye. They were filled to the brim with a kind of fear I have only ever seen in my own mother’s eyes. And that was how another memory seeped into my head….
My hands were ice cold but my forehead was burning, my entire being aching. Everything hurt. My scratchy throat, too dry to swallow. The migraine in my head feeling like a someone drilling a hole inside my brain. The rash rapidly spreading all over my body. I whimpered in pain, my mother’s gentle hand caressing my hair the only sense of comfort I had. She tried to sooth me with her rich voice but I could only hear her concern. “Am I going to be alright?” I quietly ask, gazing up hopefully at my mother. She kisses my forehead and replies saying “Of course you are darling” but her fearful and ever so scared eyes told another story….

I slowly drifted out of the pleasant memory, my mouth smiling at the thought. I sighed, and a sudden blade of longing pierced my heart. I didn’t want to admit it but I missed her so much it hurt, even though I saw her a few hours ago. I missed my Mum.

A single tear fell down my face and my top lip quivered. I took my headphones off my head, the blaring music I wasn’t paying attention to replaced by the steady sound of the bus and the noisy bird gossiping in the trees. I grabbed the edge of seat, and closed my eyes shut tightly. But that time no memories played in my mind, only the urge to grab my phone….

I couldn’t resist it. I took my phone out of my bag, and dialled my Mum’s phone number. My fingers fumbled as I pressed the numbers, tears blurring my vision. The phone rang, once, twice, three times. She picked up.

“Hello” My mother asked, curious to see who was calling.

 

After hearing her instantly recognisable voice I hesitated for a second, unable to form words, “Mummy, I am coming home”

 

 

So that is it for today!

Here are the Rules

  1. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.

2. Answer the 11 questions given by the blogger who nominated you.

3. Nominate 11 other bloggers.

4. Ask 11 new questions for them to answer.

 

Questions From Raise Your Voice:

  1. What would you choose between basketball and tennis ball?          I think I would have to choose tennis as I pretty much suck at basketball 😂
  2. How would you describe a perfect day?          My perfect day would be on holidays somewhere in a different country. I wake up in the morning where I get served with my favourite breakfast and a hot cup of coffee and then watch an ep (or 2, or 3, or 4)  of Friends. I then go out exploring for the rest of the day with my family until the sun sets. We  then find a lovely restaurant for dinner and watch a movie together back at our place.
  3. What is the first thing you notice when you look at the sky?           The different colours of the sky and the pretty patterns of the clouds. 
  4. What is your favourite horror movie?          I haven’t actually watched many horror movies, even though I do actually quite like them, so I probably wouldn’t be able to give you a straight answer. I think I may have to watch some soon though….
  5. What would you do if you are stranded on an island all alone?        I would scour the island for sources of food and water and then build myself a shelter using trees and other natural materials. I would then build myself some sort or ship or something and try to get back to civilization. It scares me how much I have thought about this! 😂  
  6. What is your favourite colour?  I have so many! I do love pastel colours but my absolute favourite colour would have to be the pink-orangey colour of the sunset.
  7. Who is the first person you would call when you planning a party?          I would definitely call my Mum as she is the absolute expert in planning parties!!!
  8. If you have to choose between eating a pizza or watching a movie, what would you choose?          Nothing beats watching one of your favourite movies, especially if you watch it with family or friends.
  9. What is one thing that you like and dislike about blogging?          I love being able to connect with other bloggers through the comments and check out other awesome blogs and something that I dislike about blogging is getting bloggers block where you are stumped for things to write about.
  10. Describe the thing or person that makes you smile everytime.          Funny videos of animals failing 🐶

TV shows I am watching and looking forward to watching!

Haii guys, recently I have been watching a LOT of TV shows that I have been absolutely loving, so I decided to share my love for these shows through a blog! I honestly love TV and I do not know what people did in the olden days when they didn’t have it! So lets get straight into it:

 

 

F R I E N D S: Friends is probably my absolute favourite show! For all who do not know, Friends is an amazing American sitcom about 6 friends (3 male, 3 female) living in Manhattan experiencing the ups and downs of life. This show is super addictive and funny but can also be really emotional. It is sooooo goooooood and I would DEFINITELY recommend that you watch it! Also, Friends was nominated for 62 Emmy awards and it’s final episode had more than 50 million American viewers, making it the fifth most watched series finale in TV history!

 

 

T E E N   W O L F: As you can probably tell from the title of the show, Teen Wolf is about Scott McCall who was bitten by a werewolf while in the woods with his best friend Stiles. Basically the show is about all the problems he has to face as a werewolf, the fights he gets into and his romances all while trying to act like a normal kid in high school. I probably didn’t explain the show very well but it is AMAZING and super addictive. Would definitely recommend.

 

M O D E R N   F A M I L Y: Modern Family is a hilarious sitcom about the lives of an extended modern day family. It is such a simple concept but will leave you laughing at the jokes and witty comments. In this extended family there is Phil and Claire (middle in pic) who have 3 kids with very different personalities. There is Jay, and his Latina wife, Gloria, who are raising two sons together, Manny and Joe. Finally there is Mitchell, and his partner, Cameron who have adopted a little  girl named Lily. I highly encourage you to watch it. It really is hilarious!

 

 

P R E T T Y   L I T T L E   L I A R S: All I can say about Pretty Little Liars (PLL for short) is SUSPENCE! Every episode leaves you hanging on the episode and frantically clicking to watch the next ep. Full of plot twists and mystery, PLL is a must! I am still on the first season (I know I  am so behind) but I already love it. Set in the fictional town of Rosewood,  the series follows the lives of four girls, Aria, Hanna Marin, Emily and Spencer Hastings, whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison. After Ally’s disappearance, the girls start receiving anonymous texts from someone called A, who threatens to expose their deepest secrets, including ones they thought only Alison knew……..

 

S H A D O W H U N T E R S: I don’t have a lot to say about this series because I have only watched a few episodes, but so far I am thoroughly enjoying it. The acting and special effects are amazing and the show has a really good plot. I would recommend reading at least one of the books before watching the series on Netflix

 

G A K K O U   G U R A S H I: 

Gakkou Gurashi (Schoo Live!) is the only Anime on this list, but I can assure you it is AMAZING! It is about 4 girls living in Megurigaoka Private High School,  a unique and lively place. The main character,  Yuki  enjoys her carefree life as a third-year high school student and member of the School Living Club.  However, this illusion of endless bliss is just a bubble waiting to be burst because Yuki is unable to perceive what is truly happening around her. In reality, all is not as it seems—the real purpose of the School Living Club is to escape from the shocking and disturbing truth: the girls are in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and have barricaded themselves inside the school as the sole survivors! It is a dubbed anime and is sooooooo good I would definitely recommend that you watch it!!!! (Source: My anime list)

 

So those are the shows I am watching, there actually are a lot more but this post would be WAY too long 😂

I really hoped you liked this post and be sure to follow it if you did. Question time! Have you ever watched any of these shows? Are there any you would recommend?

Lazy Oaf Wishlist!

Hey there,

A few days ago I was scrolling through the online store Lazy Oaf and I found myself mentally listing products that I would oh so love to buy! I love Lazy Oaf because everything they make is really quirky and unusual. But I can’t buy anything from there because: 1. I am nervous that if I buy clothes online they won’t fit   2. Everything is in English pounds not AUS dollars so it is hard to tell how much something is and 3. Everything is SUPER expensive like if you wanted a pair of socks than it would be at least 17 dollars and about 20 dollars in shipping – so for now I will be happy enough with a wish list.

Here is my wishlist:

Countries and Places I Have Been To

Hola,

Today’s blog is going to be about places I have been to. I absolutely love travelling and it is one of my favourite things to do. I think it so great because travelling is escaping from our own little world and enables you to see things you never thought you could. I have travelled to 8 different countries and I love every single one. The countries I have been to are in order of when I visited: (btw there are no pics that I took when I was there, that will probably be in a separate post)

  1. B A L I- I loveeeeee Bali (In Indonesia) and I have already been there three times! It is such a great place to relax and chill and spend some time unwinding! Everything looks so beautiful and serene there.It is also reallllllyyyyyy cheap, for example I once got a full body massage for 30 minutes on the beach and it was less than ten dollars!
This looks exactly like the sunset I saw when I went!

2.  H O N G   K O N G- Hong Kong was the first stop on my world trip and is a stunning, vibrant, densely populated urban city in China! It is filled to the brim with high end fashion shops, huge shopping centres, beautiful architecture  and skyscrapers so tall you have to tilt your head back all the way! Did I mention the markets – they are a must if you ever visit Hong Kong!

3. L O N D O N- London is probably my favourite place to ever visit! I just can not describe how much I love it! Every where you go is too gorgeous for words! The landmarks England are famous for such as The Big Ben, London Bridge, The British Museum and the Tate Gallery are amazing! Also, when I went every single meal I ate was delish!

 

4. P A R I S- Oh Paris, Paris. What can I say! The entire city is littered with cute little french bakeries that sell the most fantastic croissants and other delectable pastries and awesome cafes! It is also the world’s fashion central and the architecture is absolutely breathtaking. And nothing beats gazing upon the famous Eiffel Tower in the night.

5. B A R C E L O N A- Barcelona was my favourite place to go to in terms of art and architecture! Every body is so friendly and lovely there and as you would expect, the traditional spanish food like paella and tapas tastes ten times better in Spain. One of my favourite sights in Barcelona was the Sagrada Familia, a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, designed by Antoni Gaudí was so astonishing it nearly brought me to tears.

                                                           Look at how detailed it is!

6. R O M E- Rome is definitely the most historical place I have ever been to. Rome is a cosmopolitan city that has been around for nearly 3,000 years! Rome displays are large variety of globally influential art, architecture and culture. My two favourite places that I visited were the grand colosseum and the magnificent Vatican City.

 

7. N E W   Y O R K-  New York is home to some of the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centers and has more amazing tourist attractions and iconic sites than you can ever imagine! It is always bustling with activity and has a sort of energy that no other city in the world has. In my opinion, the best thing about New York is walking down Times Square at night with the neon signs lighting your path. 

8. H A W A I I- Hawaii definitely does not disappoint. Every where you go there is another rugged hill filled with lush green grass swaying in the wind, or golden beaches with silky sand and lapping waves or sunset painting multiple colours in the sky. Hawaii is definitely another place where you go to relax, unwind and… tan! Also, the Cheesecake Factory is a MUST to visit!

 

So those are all the countries I have been to, make sure to like and follow this blog if you enjoyed it 🙂

Have you ever been to any of these places? What is your favourite country that you have visited? Let me know in the comments below.

Bonjour,

Each Summer Faves Box contains:

DERMA E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum

Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Mascara

Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk

Crabtree & Evelyn Caribbean Island Wild Flowers Hand Therapy

ColourPop Pressed Powder in Come and Get It

When ordering, I used a one-day only code that enabled me to receive free shipping which I am sooooo thankful for because the shipping would have cost more than 50 dollars! Here are some pictures of me first unpacking all my goodies:

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 1.14.55 pm.png  

My first look at my package! You can’t tell by the picture, but the box was quite small but it managed to pack everything I bought perfectly!

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 2.35.24 pm.png

The open box.

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 1.20.26 pm.png

This is the cute little ‘menu’ I got with the package which lists and describes everything inside.

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 1.24.28 pm.png

The gorgeous freebie I received. I haven’t tried it yet but I think the colour is amazing!

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 1.26.10 pm.png

The delicious smelling hand cream from Crabtree & Evelyn.

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 1.27.32 pm.png 

Now I don’t know much about makeup packaging but this mascara is so sleek and striking my eyes can not help being drawn to it! Can you believe it is worth more than half the cost of the entire Summer Faves Box! What a bargain!

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 1.32.10 pm.png

Oh my gosh the colour of this lipstick is everrrryyyyttttthhhhiiinnnggggg! I am so excited to try it on!

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 1.35.03 pm.png 

I haven’t tried a proper face mask before so this product is particularly intriguing to me…..

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 2.19.41 pm.png

This awesome shimmery, rusty pink kind of eyeshadow that in my opinion matches beautifully with the lip crayon. 

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 2.22.54 pm.png

I already know that this travel friendly Vitamin C Concentrated Serum is going to do wonders for my face!

I just realized that I forgot to take a pic of the dry shampoo I received but I can assure you it smells so good it is not funny! I would definitely recommend buying something from Marzia’s online store, especially if shipping isn’t too expensive. I will make a part two soon where I will swatch the products and review each one.

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 4.59.24 pm.png

Here is the supeeeeerrrrrr cute pouch I bought which is such an amazing size and is made of really strong durable material! I absolutely love it!

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 4.59.16 pm.pngScreen Shot 2017-07-06 at 4.59.33 pm.png

This is the amazing tote bag which is just as cute and is made of an even stronger material! My only complaint is that the bag isn’t long enough for me and hangs to high on my body.

Have you ever bought something from Marzia? Did you like what you bought?

Sole e Luna (My Poem)

Hello there,

This is a sonnet I wrote for a project and the title means Sun and Moon in Italian. Just a disclaimer, I am not some professional poet and this is my first attempt at writing a poem, so if it is horrible please do not judge. Here it goes….

The glowing medallion in the sky

Travels across the blue expanse

A puppeteer to moving shadows

A blanket of warmth to a shivering child

Speckling those who bathe in his glory

With freckles dotting along their nose

A ball of fire, emitting forceful energy

To those who gaze upon his heavenly body

 

The shimmering face illuminates the dark

Reflecting off the still, silvery waters

The lapping tides at her absolute command

She casts a spell on the coal, black night

A changing being, waxing and waning

Luna rests as the golden light envelopes the night
