As Promised

I just wanted to take an opportunity to thank this kind person for helping me through this long process of a story I had written. In my earlier post I did promise to give anyone who could help me, some form of recognition and so here is my chance to do that.

Everyone comes across new people day by day in this fast growing system we commonly know as the “internet”. Until I started speaking with this person I could never fully grasp the positives to meeting new people through the online world.

I give you my sincerest regards. Thank you for taking the time out of your days’ to help a young, eager writer.

Guilty Pleasures

Okay, I know I am definitely not alone in this when I say we all have “guilty pleasures” They are things such as a movie, television program, or even a piece of music, that you enjoy despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard. untitled

Choruses of complaints about the dreaded day fill the classroom con delore. It’s often accompanied by groans that reach a frightening crescendo or soft sighs, signifying defeat. For those who have truly been driven mad by the fight, there might even be the staccato sounds of sobbing. And then there’s me, bright-eyed and eager, fingers moving over the keys allegro – computer keys, that is. The truth is: I love writing essays.

I once dared to casually mention this secret love of writing I had to a friend, thinking nothing of it. The reaction I received was at such a level of dismay and astonishment that I might as well have confessed a penchant for stealing walkers from the elderly. Soon enough, this innocent enjoyment of writing became an unlikely guilty pleasure. The delight I find in out-of-the-ordinary or thought-provoking prompts must be kept to myself. Uttering one word of the accomplishment I feel after completing an essay would put me at the risk of attack by stressed-out friends.

Soon enough, however, this chaotic piece will reach its end, and peace will be restored to high school classrooms worldwide. I am still puzzled as to why people wouldn’t enjoy an opportunity to discuss things important to them or express themselves through a piece of writing. Then again, people ask me how in the world I could find pleasure in such a task. I guess it’s the same way I’d explain my love for bad eighties music or fries dipped in milkshake – it’s simply a guilty pleasure.

Here are just a few more of the less intense pleasure’s I have.

Our Song by Taylor Swift: I am a total hypocrite when it comes to this song. I will say continuously how much I strongly dislike Taylor Swift’s music, but then every time the melody plays I get lost in my own thoughts.

Hannah Montana: This was from a younger phase of mine give or take seven years.

Teacher/Student Relationship. Books/Movies/Television: It’s really out there when I say that this topic really intrigues me. “Cliché” is what it has become known for. If you specifically search for it though, its hard to find “stuff” based on it. Its falsely notorious.

When I was younger I had more  guilty pleasures then I ever do now, they are always a part of me. Born in a world full of judgement, I was one of the unlucky ones who does everything in their power not stand out. I would love to hear your “guilty pleasures” in the comments below.

 

Present To Perfect

Beautiful, emotional, gripping, intense. Just couldn’t put this one down! How do you review a book like this… a story that makes you feel intensely, shatters your heart and destroys you. But also a beautifully unique story that takes you on such a journey and captivates you. This one really got to me.
Some people are just bonded in a special way. It’s like they were made for each other. They share this special connection. You can’t really explain in, it just is what it is. Amanda and Noah share this bond. They’ve known each other since the day they were born. Noah has always been the constant in Amanda’s life. Her knight in plastic armor. Amanda is unsure of herself. The only thing she has ever been sure about is Noah.

Amanda and Noah have been best friends since the day they were born, which happens to be the same day. They were born minutes apart. There is no one better than Noah. Noah is everything to Amanda.

Noah had always been my best friend, my partner in crime, my soul mate, the love of my life. My everything.

Noah has always been there for Amanda. No matter what. He protects her, stands by her, loves her unconditionally. Even as children, he is the one perfect thing in her life. The one thing she can count on, no matter what.

‘I promise, I won’t let anything bad happen to you again, Tweet.’

As Amanda and Noah get older, their feelings for each other start to change. They grow and develop. Amanda starts to feel something more than friendship for Noah, but she doesn’t think he could ever return those feelings. Amanda has some serious self esteem/self worth issues.

Noah deserved perfect because he was, and I was as far from perfect as you could get.

Noah has some serious feelings for Amanda. He is in love with her. He wants more than friendship with her, but all she ever does is push him away.

“You deserve better than me, Noah.”
 “There isn’t anyone better than you for me.”

Amanda has always felt unworthy… never good enough. She feels as though her older sister is the perfect one. She tries to be perfect, but no matter what she does, she just doesn’t feel she’s worth it. While reading, you will get frustrated with Amanda. You may want to scream at Amanda, you might even want to throw something at her… All Noah wants is for her to know that she is enough. Noah knows Amanda is perfect for him. She just doesn’t believe it.

As time goes on, things between them get complicated. Remaining friends only isn’t easy for the two of them. Noah wants to be more. Tweet knows that if she and Noah get together for real, she will somehow screw it up. That can’t happen. She can’t lose Noah. He is the most important thing in her life. Amanda is instant they stay ‘just friends’.

Noah tries and tries to get Amanda to see that she is what he wants. The only one he wants. Nothing could ever break their bond.

The story follows Noah and Amanda from childhood until college age. It is such a devastating journey. There were points I had to put the nook down and take a ‘chapter break’. My heart just couldn’t take it. My heart was beating out of my chest… I swear this book gave me hives. I was just distraught. Amanda’s insecurities was the cause of so much pain and devastation for herself and Noah.

“I can’t be around you right now. It hurts too much., because I am so completely and desperately in love with you, Tweet.”
‘There hasn’t been a day in my life that I haven’t loved you. I wish you would just let me love you.”
“I just need some time to figure out how I can have you in my life without having you be my life.”
“You do have me. Every part of me. You just don’t want me.”
“I can’t lose you. You’re my everything. Not having you in my life wrecked me before, but not having you in my world would completely destroy me.”

Noah was one of the most amazing guys. He wasn’t perfect, he made his fair share of mistakes, but he was only doing the best he could with the situation he was thrown into. You will fall in love with this guy. It’s just impossible not to.  photo 64a45140-5d2f-45a0-81dd-9851d13c97f9_zpsf54b4065.jpg
There were so many other important characters in this story… many of them I felt a crazy amount of hate for. And most of their names started with the letter ‘B’. Also a character I loved named Dalton who was there for Amanda when she really needed someone.
I loved how unpredictable this story was. Things started happening that really shocked me. I truly didn’t know what was going to happen next or how everything was going to turn out. Then I got hit with a giant curve ball that I didn’t see coming at all. It was a total game changer.
Not every day do I pick up a book that has this strong of an impact on me. This book gave me a major case of ‘the feels’. And how I love books that make me feel. Cry, sob, laugh, smile, just FEEL. It gave me the same feelings I had while reading The Sweet Gum Tree, Thoughtless, That Boy and (view spoiler)[TFiOS (hide spoiler)]. It really pulled on my heartstrings. It was angsty, it was heartbreaking, it was incredible. The writing was amazing. The story was frustrating and beautiful. You will need massive amounts of tissues while reading this one… and don’t forget the chocolate cake! An unforgettable journey of two people who were truly meant to be together.

Everyone deserves a thank you and goodbye.

Love Your Perspective

Sadly I never posted anything this past weekend. I came down with a slight case of writers block. That’s what writing is all about learning to push through it. Although I try as best as I can to remember that I should write more for myself then for others, I still try to give readers something worth reading.

So I did talk about in my last post. how I wanted to showcase more of the kind and unique people I come face to face with in my everyday life. My goal is to do that every few weeks or so, but for now, let’s get into what this post is really about.

Are you a avid reader or movie lover? Well here are some highly recommended books and movies I think you have see!

Now get in mind, I am the person who loves reading books like “Fifty Shades Of Grey”, or “Pretty Little Liars”. There is a huge difference between those two but if you get the gist of what I’m trying to say continue reading, if not go look those up.

Movies: These all say something about society.

1. LOL

2. A Walk To Remember

4. Save The Last Dance

5. Flowers In The Attic

Now for some must reads. Most of these are tied into forbidden love.

1. Honor Thy Teacher

2. Stealing Parker

3. Keep Holding On

4. Roam

5. A Different Blue
