Prompts #10 – Life’s a Candy Store

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Yesterday’s prompt was life’s a candy store, and this is my interpretation.

Life’s a Candy Store
You get to be a 6-year-old kid again for one day and one day only — plan your perfect 24 hours. Where do you go, what do you do, and with whom?

Eighteen
Right now I am eighteen years old and before I start answering this question, I just want to make clear that generally, I wouldn’t want to be any younger than I am now. Every day I get older, I realize more and more of what is happening around me, and of what is happening inside me. Especially that last one is very important to me, a treat not many people have in the way I do, and every time I see something changing inside me, I feel more complete. I wouldn’t want to be younger. I just want to live now.

Prompts #9 – Must Not Fail

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Yesterday’s prompt was must not fail, and this is my interpretation.

Must Not Fail
What is the one thing at which you are the most afraid of failing?

I am afraid of many things. I am afraid of the dark, I am afraid of people, I am afraid of what I can not yet wrap my head around. I am a quite frightfull person, I’m afraid. And when I look at what I just wrote, it appears to me that mostly I am afraid of the unknown. If it is dark and I can’t see what is around me, I am afraid. If someone comes up to me and I do not know what they want, I am afraid. If I launch myself into a situation that I can not oversee, of which I do not really know what is awaiting me, I am afraid.

Why I didn’t post anything in the last five days

I know, I know. I was supposed to blog every day. And I intended to, I really did. I still do. I’m blaming last day’s lousy prompts, because they didn’t give me any inspiration.

But the truth is, I’ve been buisy with other things and I simply didn’t have time to blog. I’ve been cleaning my room some more, I’ve had work, I met friends and tonight I have a sleepover. It’s been a buisy few days.

10 things I found while cleaning out my room

For the last few weeks I have been buisy cleaning out my room. It started with the idea that I wanted a new floor. Right now there is old carpet on the floor, the colour isn’t what it used to be and it is so dusty…. And I’m kind of allergic to dust, so not a good combination. So I wanted laminate on the floor. And then I decided I wanted to paint my door and windowframe. Oh, and I wanted to paint on my wall.

I started with the door and windowframe, because it wouldn’t really matter if we’d drop paint on the old carpet. Since the painting is done I have been cleaning and cleaning and throwing stuff away. When that is done (in a week I hope) I’ll go and paint my wall and after that is done we can do the floor and I HOPE it will all be done before the month is over. Not gonna happen, but it’s good to have hopes.

Prompts #8 – Take Me to the Moon

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Although I didn’t like their explaination, yesterday’s prompt was take me to the moon. This is my interpretation.

“Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. Then your love would also change.”
– William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Over time, the moon has been a mystery to mankind and a source of wonder and imagination. Very often she plays an important part in religions. Today I have for you a selection of quotes, poems and artwork inspired by the moon.

Some Pictures

Today’s prompt didn’t really speak to me, or bring up any anecdotes worth mentioning, so I tried to come up with something else. For me, it’s a little like writing stuff for my drama class at school. I have plenty of interesting ideas, but when I need one, I can’t find any. In the end, I decided to give you some nice pictures I found on the internet.
