Writing Pompts Day 5

  1. My favorite comfort food and why: I am an emotional eater so food alone provides comfort for me. If I had to choose one specific food that provided comfort for me it would be cheese. Cheese has many different tastes, textures, and over all styles. Cheese goes with almost anything. You can mix and match cheese with almost anything. When I was in high school I would randomly say “I love cheese”…. and I do love cheese. Its delicious.
  2. Five places I want to visit: 1) London – The heart of the British Isles! 2) The Vatican in Rome – the heart of my religion! 3) Pakistan – If it wasn’t such a high risk. Its the land in which my most favorite person is from. I’d love to see the land of his family 4) Seychelles – Its an island, its not overly popular and its totally random, I also adore the flag. 5) Palestine – I’d love to visit the Holy Land but by the actual natives of the land.
  3. Write a conversation (in chat format) about a man who calls a wrong number, and ends up talking to an angry woman. Through the conversation, ending with the line: “well, I suppose so.”:

“HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU TO STOP CALLING!”

“Um hello, I’m sorry I’m trying to reach the Johnson’s my daughter said she would be staying the night.”

“I highly doubt it, your calling for him. You’re trying to find us. He will never hurt me again!”

“Ma’am, are you okay?”

“I’d be much better if you goons would leave me alone.”

“I’m not trying to bother you. I promise I am just trying to locate my daughter. I don’t mean any harm!”

“I don’t believe you. Just please, please, please let me get on with my life. I hate him. He’s not going to hurt me ever again.”

“Ma’am I’m not a part of what ever you have going on in your life. I’m only worried about contacting my daughter.”

“So your really not interested in my decision?”

“No ma’am! I’m just concerned with finding my daughter. I think I dialed the wrong number. I’m looking for  my daughter is supposed to be staying all night with her friend. My wife was just in a car accident and I need to find my daughter. I promise that I am not trying to find or hurt you.”

“I’m sorry to be so hostile. I’ve been getting so many phone calls from people who work for the man who attacked me. Now I’m pregnant. I’m so scared I don’t know what to do I’m sorry for being hostile and I’m sorry for burdening you with my problems, when you have problems of your own.”

“….. I don’t know what would do in your situation. I advise you to change your phone number and talk to a lawyer about protection options. I’m really sorry that you have to go through all of that and I’ll pray for you. I just need to get a hold of my daughter..”

“I’ve already changed my number several times. I don’t know how they keep getting it. I’m so sorry for being hostile. Thanks for being nice..”

“You’re welcome. Keep your head up, it can’t stay bad.”

“Well, I suppose so. Bye”

  1. My views on religion: I believe that religion can be considered  beautiful thing. It can always be used to breed hate and intolerance towards others. I am a recent convert to the Catholic church because for many years and most of my life I have been amazed by this religion. I was raised in a protestant house hold that called themselves Baptist. I can remember many times growing up being scared of Church… I hated getting up and going to church. I spent many years drifting around a a self proclaimed pagan. As of last year I was feeling the tug in my heart to head home, back to the “Christian” roots. However I did end up among a hypocritical Zionist cult at first… I made may way to the Catholic faith. I realize the brutal and simply unjust history of the church, and I believe that history along is part of the reason I am so intrigued.  Many of your protestant churches teach hate, intolerance, and fear of people who are not like them. Mainly Muslims. I own a copy of the Quran and I find it very beautiful… the Quran is on of my most favorite positions. I like how since completing the catechism classes and confirmation that I feel free. Going to confession is still intimidating to me but walking out of the confessional and completing penance is one of the most peaceful and whole feelings I have ever felt.  So depending on how you your religious beliefs… it holds the possibility to be
  2. The meaning behind my screen name: This one is rather simple. ak234am. The letters A and K are my initials. 234am is the time my father told me I was born. I like to keep is unique but simple.
  3. Write 250 words about the next piece of dialogue you hear: “Nanny, How do you spell about?” – I think it is fantastic to hear children interested in trying to learn. I remember being a child and learning how to spell words. I hated spelling and never tried to excel. Looking back over my blogs and notice how I didn’t grasp even the most simple spelling an grammar. As I read up to the more recent blog entries I sincerely impress myself. My grasp on words and spelling dramatically increased. I have often been complimented on having an extended vocabulary and I’m not entirely sure how that came about considering that I grew up refusing homework and basic English fundamentals. However I have always been a writer and had an active imagination. I suppose reading more advanced and complex books helped me get to the point of having a better vocabulary. In my older blog I didn’t use words with their proper spelling and definition. One prime example is the word “which”… I was writing in the tense of specific where the correct spelling would be “which” but in older entries specifically the ones from my high school days I used the spelling “witch”. That specific spelling is proper for a woman who is believe to have evil or magical powers, a witch is a common and popular Halloween Costume theme. There is a huge difference. Its a prime example of how knowing and utilizing proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling can be extremely beneficial. I am not a huge fan of the English language and using the proper fundamentals when it comes to writing and speaking.

Writing Prompts Day 3

  1. My top 5 pet peeves:  This is going to be extremely fun! 1) People who think they are always right. If you are in a debate or discussion and you have any spark of doubt on a topic please don’t let your pride get the best of you. Arguing against something knowing that you are possibly wrong only makes you look ignorant and arrogant. 2) Discrimination and bigotry. Humanity has every potential to be beautiful but if will never be if we can’t just sit back and appreciate each others differences and uniqueness instead of hating each other. There is nothing about another person that makes one better than the other. Wars are not only a result of corporate greed but also bigotry and hate based on selfish and superficial needs. 3) Continuous rap music. I’m okay with listening to rap occasionally… the beats are fun and some times the lyrics have the ability to speak to me. However I can’t stand to listen to a lot of rap repeatedly it for whatever reason it increases my anxiety and makes me very nervous. 4) Crying children. Okay this one is going to make me sound like a horrible person but I cannot stand the sound of crying children. I can’t stand parents who spoil their toddlers to the point that I am forced to listen to them scream and cry. Even little babies crying can get under my skin. This is one of those things that makes me feel like I’d make a horrible parent. 5) Mouthy people. The kind of people who don’t know when to just keep their mouth shut. If we are out in public and I’ve told you about an issue with another person it does not help to see or hear you remind me of how you have my back. If I have told you a secret please don’t think it is okay for you make hints or any kind of awkward jesters about it in public or other social settings its rather annoying and makes me think that you are immature.
  2. My day in great detail: I slept most of the day. I did wake up at 9:30 this morning and called my dad. I begged him to come down here, of course it was jokingly. Then I called my mom and chatted with her. I called to randomly tell James (my cat Penny’s father) good morning since I generally only talk to him during the day. Then I went back to sleep…. I slept until 2:30 pm… realized what time it was and that I’d slept through my plans with Christine. I had also got an email from my job about schedules of course I’m laid off so none of them were for me. I got up used the rest room. I grabbed a slice of bread out of the refrigerator then sat down on my couch watched and episode of The Munsters.while typing up yesterdays journal entry, since I worked on Sunday and spent last night getting my blog set up and updated for Sundays entry before I went to bed at 2am. After finishing the journal I left to go get a Big Red 2 liter from Save A Lot but ended up driving to the Amish salvage grocery store where I bought a think of chips, bag of chocolate chips, and a bottle of hot sauce. I ate some of the chips and chocolate chips on my way home, got home put my food away and snacked on the chips a little. I put on the television show Revenge that I’ve been watch and started this entry. Since starting I’ve taken some breaks snacking on food and preheating the oven, preparing the chicken and putting it in the oven. Now I’m typing away on this…

Writing Prompts Day 2

  1.  Where you would like to be in 10 years:I’d like to be finally in his arms of course! In 10 years I’d like to be in my own home. In the perfect imagination I’d have a little family. I’d have a job that I enjoy and my child would be in school. I’d like to have a better grasps on my emotional intelligence. I would like to be solid in my religious practices. I’d also just like to be living a little comfortable and be very happy.
  2. 10 likes and 10 dislikes:10 LIKES – the color blue, cats, onions, the smell of gain, Sayya Sai Baba nag champa incense, abstract and original art work, heirlooms, antiques, reading/writing, & celestial bodies. 10 DISLIKES – excessive rap music, Katchup, beans, the heat, snakes, the sound of chainsaws, most small dogs, coolwhip, discrimination and intolerance, & arrogant ignorance.
  3. Write 250 words inspired by the color of the walls of the room that you are in: I am sitting in my living room. the walls are white. Traditionally the color white is symbolic of purity. According to the scriptures of the Old Testament of the Bible in order to receive forgiveness for the sins you committed against God and his commandment the price was to sacrifice a spotless lamb. Of course being a Catholic I must explain that when the Jews crucified Christ he symbolically became the spotless lamb. In more modern western tradition the color white is used symbolic in the rites of marriage. Brides who are pure and virginal are to where white. Of course more modernly brides choose to wear white despite their purity and virginal status. To me the color white is simple but yet frustrating. Having white walls in my home, all white appliances, and a white car I find the color white hard to keep clean and spotless. Being a little bit obsessive about the cleanliness of my apartment I find myself constantly wiping down my appliances and walls. My car however is rather dingy as I hardly had the time to clean it over the summer. I typically also don’t wear white clothing as I tend to be messy which inevitably I always stain up white clothing. The color white however is a preference when it comes to clouds in the sky as fluffy white clouds generally appear on beautiful sunny days. Lastly because I am running out of things to say; I can remember being a lot younger and being confused about the purpose of white crayons because most paper is white.

Writing Prompts Day 1

  1. Current Relationship: I’m currently in a physical state of single. However, I am committed to an awesome person virtually. I some times feel insecure with a virtual relationship but even though it may never work out at least I have this experience. He’s an amazing person who has been there for me through a lot of ups and downs. I’m not always as patient as I wish I was with him but he never fails me. We butt heads some times and I find it more amusing than actually get angry with him. I live in a day and age where physical appearance is everything and the soul is taken for granted… although we do exchange photos and video chat, so he knows my physical state and still chooses me. Its flattering. I’m at a point in my life where it is best to wait it out to see where this goes. I’m okay with accepting that I may just end up alone with cats for the rest of my days. Waiting is something too many people aren’t okay with or even able to do, I find waiting this out sensible. As good things come to those who wait,. This culture is too overly sexual. I value the tradition of modesty! I
  2. Basic Things About Myself: Well, I have blue eyes. I live in the United States. I don’t like to be compared to the average person who considers themselves “American”. I have three awesome fur babies. I’m struggling with over coming the addiction of gossip which is absolutely embarrassing to admit but hey admitting is the first step right? I have one sibling who is out of the picture for a while… sadly. A lot of people find it gross but I love the taste of onions. My favorite color is blue. I’m obsessed with the Arthurian Legends and the British Isles. My favorite number is 333, which is apparently odd to a lot of people. I like to sleep in the dark in extremely cold temperatures (its November and my air conditioner is still on). I love learning about History despite the fact that I never paid attention in school.
  3. Put your play list on shuffle. Write 250 words about the first and last lines of the very next song that plays: Tears by Rufio. This song in itself is a reminder of being young. A teenage crush and realizing that things will never be as they are in my delusional dream.  “I sit and hear you sleep, I don’t want to go, you’re there beside me, but you’re so far away, I talk to you while you’re asleep, you can’t hear a word..you can hear everything” – This is this the first line of the song… to me it is about a person watching a loved one sleep right before an inevitable separation and talking to them, expressing feelings and thought to their sleeping loved one that they can’t express when both are awake. I imagine that perhaps this could be a couple of high school sweethearts who are getting ready to leave to go off to college or something of that romantic bittersweet genre. “Tears are feelings we can’t say, tears mean that you care, tears are mixed emotions, tears are more than tears” – This is the last line of the song I actually have these lyrics on the front of a journal of mine. These lyrics say to me that when you cry its not just the stinging stream of tears, that some times its okay to cry and not know how to express yourself verbally. In my scenario of the departing couple I believe these lines are saying that even though they can’t express in words how they feel their tears is a symbol of how this is tearing them apart on the inside and that the tears they are shedding due to this even are more than just tears, its their way of expression.

30 Day Writing Challenge.
