Marvelous Media

Whoa, it's been a while since my last post. I'm really sorry about that. I have some great news through. Today I have entered the most magically world you can imagine. No, it isn't as whimsical as Fairyland or Educated as Atlantis, but just as good. It's the enchanted realm of the Orangeburg Technology Center News Letter. I'm counting down the days until next week when we will begin working on it. The News Letter is a part of the Marvelous Multi-Media class I'm taking this semester. Finally, I can learn and flex my creative muscle at the same time. As for the Fairy-like Scholarship, I've just about got him in my butterfly net.

Hazardous Homework

Hello, again,

Sorry I haven't written you in awhile. My quest for the capture of  the Fae Scholarship has taken an irking turn. Plus, there was my aunt's wedding last Saturday (which went wonderfully by the way, Fairy God-Mother eat your heart out). And it looks like the Homework-Beast has come back bigger and uglier than ever with the beginning of the new semester. However, with a little elbow grease and my armor know as Dedication, I may be able to conquer these foes, keep my peace of mind, and pass through the jungle that is High School.

Have a great week everyone.

Wedding Bells and Sea Shells

Hello, all,
Things have been busy in my house for a couple of days, which is why there has been a gap in my posting. This Saturday there's going to be a wedding- the first wedding I will attend! My aunt is so excited, I know she'll make a beautiful bride. Meanwhile, the fairy scholarship has gotten just a bit closer to my trap, but not close enough for me to cease waiting. I can tell you this on and off again relationship with him is emotionally straining.

Also, I have more sea mollusks facts for you.

Have a great day! ;)

Snowflake Slugs

Today school is cancelled due to winter weather (Could Mother Nature be anymore kind?). My  backyard  now looks like someone cover it with power sugar. Meanwhile, I had just set up my trap for the sprite Scholarship. I've made it pass the pit of snakes that's known as the dreaded Deadline (I just sent out all the requirements for the Bills Gates Scholarship, which is postmarked today.)


Also, check out this winter angel I just found out about.

Looks like something you would put on  a Christmas Tree doesn't it?




Speaking of creatures without a backbone, Cheese and Krakens is on the front page of the Teen Ink Fantasy/sci fi section for the entire day (See link below). This is great shock to me because this is like the twelfth time this has happen (But I'm not complaining).

But enough about me, tell me about you. What is Good Ol' Mama Nature dishing out where you live? Did you like today's slug facts?

Saturday Voyage

Finally, it is the wonderful weekend, the harmonious isle in the endless sea of the week. For the last five days  I have navigated through the dangerous waters of my semester exams ( 98 on my Driver's Ed exam); nearly escape the whirlpool  of confusion that is SAT scores; and had to stick wax in my ears to avoid listening to the sweet, stressful song of the merman Scholarship before the deadlines are up this month.  However, I have made it to my personal Atlantis unharmed and ready for the reminder of the long trek that is senior year.


Happy weekend everyone! ;)

Class 'B' Act

Hello, all


I have survived the test of trials that is semester exams and slayed the mutli-armed Studying-Beast successfully! I made an 86 on my Anatomy and Physiology test and the Driver's Education exam will not be graded until tomorrow. Meanwhile, I am entering one of my short stories for a contest by Ms. Sylvia Ney. Hopefully the fickle youth known as Mr. Fate and his bribe Lady Fortunate would take pity on me and I might be able to win. Wish me good luck. ;)


Here's the link to Ms. Ney's website,

Study guides and Slugs of Salads

Okay, so far I have knock two exams out of the park. It's not a home run worthy of the Hall of Fame, but I'm going to call this a victory (94 for my Agriculture class. As for Anatomy and Physiology, well, let's say that's to be continue ;) ) All I need is to take the final exam for the delightful Driver's Education and I can devote all my time to the cat and mouse game that is my quest for the majestic Scholarship.


Meanwhile I found out about this crawly and cute creature yesterday,

Isn't he a sweetie?




Speaking of ocean invertebrates I'm leaving you all the link to Cheese and Krakens.

Now I have to go now harpoon the tentacle monster formerly known as Studying. Have a great day. ;)

Extreme Exams

It's the most annoying time of year. Yes, that time when most of us flex those brain muscles in our cranium until they melt to mush and sprain our eyes to the point where they pop out of our heads. The deadly tests and trials that even Hercules himself couldn't handle- semester exams.  Also, it seems today as we return from our winter holiday that the orange-eyed ogre that is the Homework-Beast has sprung a ambush on me.
On the lighter side, Sirius and the Wizard's Pet will be on the front page of the sci fi/fantasy section of Teen Ink tomorrow, if I have any (mental) strength left after battling Homework-Beast I can promise you that I will be doing somersaults (metaphorically speaking of course ;) ) So, while I am doing hand-to-pencil combat with the scourge of high school, I wish my readers a great rest of the day.
