Short Story Saturday: The Beauty in Lyric✨

The Beauty In Lyric 

Lyric Wright was 7 years old when she fell in love with writing and singing. She wrote her very first song for the school talent show competition and won 1st place.

🎶One day I will fly, I won’t have to cry, mom and dad will always be by my side but I just have totry, to be a big girl sometimes. Cause I can change the world, even if I’m just a little girl. As long as I’ve got super girl powers I can fly forever.”🎶 She sang softly in front of the crowd of parents, students, and teachers.

Fast forward 10 years later and she hasn’t stopped singing since. It became her dream to become a singer/songwriter, she was just too afraid to turn that dream into reality. She had always been very shy and reserved, so her talents were hidden from the world.
She always wondered whatgave her the strength and courage to go on stage when she was 7 and why she didn’t have it now. Her theory: Children don’t gossip and judge each other as much as teenagers. They literally just want to have fun. Teenagers want to start drama, make fun of you, and pullyou down to your lowest level of life all to fit in and make themselves feel better. Especially if you’re really good looking or talented.

She didn’t have many friends so She didn’t want any unnecessary attention on herself just becauseShe was good at something. Isn’t everyone? She didn’t think she was better than anyone else. Unfortunately, the students at Northwood would think that.

The one friend she did have was Connor and even he didn’t knowshe could sing. They met in Math class in 8th grade when he noticed she was struggling on a few tests. He offered to help her and she accepted with the sweetest smile. They were almost inseparable, people often spread rumors that they were secretly dating even when they constantly told them they were just friends. Connor knew she could write well. He learned that in 8th grade when they became friends. He helped her in math and she helped him with his language arts work. They’re seniors in high school now and still do the same only now it’s calculus and English. They were the perfect duo.

One afternoon after school, Connor stops by Lyric’s house as he often did just to hang out or to study sometimes. Lyric’s motherwelcomes him in and tells him Lyric is in her bedroom.
When he gets to her door it’s cracked and he hears soft singing. It’s her. She can’t hear because she has headphones on and she doesn’t see him because she’s focused on writing.

Connor listens to her sing and watches her write in a purple notebook for about aminute before she stops and takes the headphones off.

He decides to knock before walking in.

Connor: Hey, what you up to?

Lyric: Con! You scared me. Are we studying tonight?

She asks as she quickly closes the purple notebook.

Connor: You know I hate when you call me Con. Like I’m some con artist.
He says as he walks over to sit at the computer desk next to her bed.

Lyric: Oh shut up its cute for your name. Are we studyingtonight or?

Connor: No, I’m just stopping by to hang. What are you up to? You didn’t say.

Lyric: Oh I was just writing. Nothing important. What do you wanna do? My mom got a few movies on bootleg and she says they’re all new, but I haven’t checked them out yet.

Connor: Nah I don’t really feel like watching any movies right now. What you listening to?

Lyric: I was just checking out this new song.

Connor: By who?

Lyric: Um, Rihanna. Whyall the questions?

Connor: Rihanna doesn’t have a new song out and I’m asking because I heard you singing and now I’m wondering why you never told me you could. You’ve got some talent and you’re hiding it like this?

Lyric was astounded. She really didn’t know what to say. No one has heard her sing since the 2nd grade in that talent show. She knew he was only going topressure her to sing more but she just wasn’t ready.

Lyric: I was going to tell you eventually. I mean it’s really not that special it’s just something I like to do.

Connor: it’s something you’re really good at.

Lyric: That’s partly why I keep it secret. You know how people at Northwood are. They’ll think I’m some conceited bitch in a second.

Connor: Or they’ll think you sound great, like I do. Does your mom know?

Lyric: She heard me sing once when I was younger, I wasn’t as good back then though. But you’re different.

Connor: The only difference is I’m your friend and I’m gonna tell you the truth. You shouldn’t care what others think. They’re the snobs If they think that of you because you’re the sweetest girl I know. I think you should try out for that new show Musical Wars. You sing and write lyrics on the show to win 50k and a record deal with Next Star Music Productions. All you have to do is send a video with your information and sing a song for 30 seconds.

Lyric: Yeah I bet a million people audition for those shows. What are the odds of me winning or even being chosen?

Connor: Your name is Lyric Wright. I think that’s enough reason itself. Your name automatically makes you sound like a star. A lyrical singing genius. Honestly Lyric, you have a great voice from what I heard.

Lyric: I don’t even know what I would sing.
Connor: Sing anything. What about that Rihanna song you said you were listening to?

Lyric: Haha very funny… I was listening to something I wrote in 2nd grade for a talent show. It’s stupid. But I wanted towrite a full version. Maybe even a better version. I don’t know.

Connor: Can you sing it again for me?

Lyric: Promise not to laugh?

Connor: I’m not gonna laugh. I promise.

Lyric: Okay. I’ve been working on it but don’t look at me…

Connor turns around and patiently waits.
She takes a deep breath, and begins to sing…

🎶Born with wings but they seem that they’ve been broken. Trying to read life like a book but it won’t open. How is the story told? How does the story unfold? Is there always a happy ending? I’m just hanging on the branches. One day I will fly, I won’t have to cry, you’ll always be by my side but I just have to try, to be a big girl sometimes. Cause I can changethe world, even if I was still just a little girl. As long as I’ve got super girl powers I can fly forever.🎶

Connor turns back around when he realizes she is finished. She’s just staring at him, waiting for a response probably.

Connor: It’s a beautiful song. It’s nowhere near stupid. How could you ever think that?
Lyric: I don’t know. You really like it?

Connor: I do. I think you should sing it for the audition. I’m pretty confident you’ll be picked. The worst thing that can happen is you don’t get picked and the best thing that can happen is your life changing forever. You have a real talent you’re clearly passionate about. I can tell by your lyrics. This is the time for you to fly. Your wings aren’t broken they just don’t know how to work because you don’t use them. This could be your happy ending, but only if you try. Give it a chance.

Lyric thought about her bestfriends words and he was right. Those words touched her heart in ways she couldn’t explain but she knew that if she didn’t try now, she probably never would. After a few minutes of deliberation, and non stop “do it! do it! chanting from Conner, she decides to send in her audition with Connors help recording.

6 months later…
audience stage

Lyric: I wouldn’t be here tonight, standing here in front of you all as a Musical War winner if it wasn’t for my best friend Connor. He’s the one who convinced me to take a chance and reach for my dreams. He’s the one who convinced me not to worry about what everyone else thinks and just go for what makes me happy. I couldn’t ask for a better friend so thank you Connor. I’d also like to thank everyone for voting for me, my parents, students at Northwood High School. I really didn’t expect all the love and support I got. I’ve learned how to use my wings and I’m flying! Thank you everyone!❤️

Lyric’s life was changed forever, for the better.

I hope you all enjoyed this short story. All stories I have shared are drafts. Let me know your thoughts or what you took from it in the comments.

I remember when I first wrote this short story and a few of you said you really liked the lyrics, and even the story. I thought about finishing the lyrics making a full song, and continuing Lyric and Connors story. Unfortunately I forgot about this because I constantly have so many ideas roaming through my head. Now that I’ve read it again I’m feeling quite inspired to get started on that! It all comes at the right time…

How to be featured in a future Fun Friday post

  1. Like/Comment on my blog frequently, this way I always notice you when I go to choose a few to be featured. By posting genuine comments, you also have a chance to be featured in my Golden Comments which I will be bringing back. This is a post where I share some of my most favorite comments for that week, that month etc.
  2. Post to your own blog frequently. Sometimes I choose a few from my reader to be featured, if you post frequently there’s a chance I will notice you. This also helps me be able to have a variety of things to include from your blog for a particular post.
  3. Be active in the community. You need to make yourself known, more specifically to be featured in one like this. If no one has any idea of your blog or who you are they obviously wouldn’t be able to guess you.

& that’s literally all you have to do!
Unless I ask otherwise of course. Sometimes I will make a post asking for bloggers who’d like to be featured. I find ways to include all😊

I hope you all enjoy this weeks Fun Friday and have a great weekend! Also, let me know if you’d like a part 2 with 10 more blogs!

What Kind of Flower Are You?? Take The Quiz To Find Out!🌸

It’s the beginning of spring! And while it doesn’t quite feel like it yet I’m still excited for the season. One thing I love most about Spring is seeing all the flowers bloom, and even all the floral patterns that trend.

If you were to ask me the first thing I think of when I think of spring, I’d say flowers- or rain. But the flowers need all that rain to grow right?

I came across this fun quiz (only 11 questions) to find out which type of flower I am. Lol no judgement here just roll with it.

The Questions
(They give you answers to choose from but I had my own answers for some)

  1. It’s a lovely Sunday evening, what are you doing? 
    Well, as I am answering this it’s currently a Sunday and I’m taking this quiz. That isn’t one of the choices though.
  2. Who’s your favorite pop star?
    You have to choose between Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Katy Perry, and Adele. Honestly, they’re ALL great but I don’t really listen to any of them that much. So I had to go with Beyonce. I probably wouldn’t choose her either if there were no options. Sorry bee-hive!
  3. What keeps you up with worries at night?
    Everything! It can be good or bad and I’ll probably be up all night thinking about it. That wasn’t an option though.
  4. As an after work activity, you’ve decided to become involved in theater! What’s your role?
    Honestly, there were 3 options I would love (actress, director, and audience member) but I decided on director.
  5. You’re going on vacation- what do you absolutely have to do?
    I’d definitely have to go sight seeing and shopping!
  6. What’s your idea of the perfect first date?
    My idea of the perfect first date is honestly just a date where we go out, have a great time, get to know each other more and can agree on a 2nd date. Nothing truly specific.
  7. In a past life, you just know you were…
    I’ve always said I must have been an artist or something in the past life. Or someone who was really inspiring to many people in general.
  8. Yikes! You screwed up something pretty huge at work. How are you dealing with it?
    If it’s that big of a deal I’m probably feeling extremely uncomfortable, nervous, and wondering what is going to happen next, or why something is always happening. But I’m going to try to get help also.
  9. If you made a perfume, what would it be called?
    I’d personally choose something girly, kind of elegant but I’d also probably use a word from another language or something lol. Of course I had to work with the options though which were: Enigma, Midnight, Freshwater, Earth, Cool Breeze, And Tropicale. I chose Midnight because it’s the closest to something I would use. For example, something like Midnight Bliss lol.
  10. In your opinion, there’s nothing better than…
    Probably love? I’m not sure. Love wasn’t an option.
  11. You go to a party only to discover someone else is wearing your exact same outfit. How do you feel?
    Probably like… Damn it! I thought I would be the only one wearing this, now everyone is going to compare us to see who wore it best, smh! But I also think it depends on the other person, like if I’m cool and they’re acting cool about it, maybe even joking about it to lighten the mood I’d feel okay and it wouldn’t be as bad. It could be the start of a friendship lol.

My Results

What Kind of Flower Are You?

Like lavender, you have a soothing presence — people love your company, because you always know how to make them feel better. Thoughtful and considerate, you often put other people first…and even make total strangers feel at home! No matter how sad someone is feeling, you can always provide comfort and solace.

Laid back and relaxed, you’re happy to float through life. That said, you’re happy just to do you and don’t mind being in your own company.

Interesting! That sounds about right lol. So, what flower are you? Take the quiz and let me know in the comments. What flower do you THINK you’d get? I thought I would get rose. What Flower did you actually get? Does the description relate to you? If you don’t want to take the quiz that’s okay, you can just answer some of the questions in the comment section if you’d like.adk_0001

Hobby Adventures: DIY/Customs✨

Before you begin… It may be best NOT to view this in reader. Head on over to my actual site.💖

Happy Friday! I hope you’re all ready for this weeks hobby adventure, it’s going to be my favorite one sharing which is why I’ve saved it for last. The series will only have one week left after this one. I’m excited! Not about it ending of course but because I’m going to have a lot of fun with these last two☺️

I’ve always been interested in DIY projects, even before I knew the term DIY existed. I’d find myself trying to come up with ways to make basic bedroom decor and school supplies really pretty, girly, and more unique to my own personality. In school I would try to color my pencils with a permanent marker or put decorative tape around them, I’d decorate my notebooks with markers and stickers or glue doodles on the cover. I remember going camping for a school trip and one of the activities we could participate in was decorating your own little purse, I was so excited to sit down and create mine and show it off. I wish I had pictures but this was back in 5th grade. I barely have any pictures before my high school years, unfortunately.In 2016 I decided to share some of my DIY projects to Facebook just to show my friends and family what I had been up to and how excited I was to personalize my own items. I was proud of what I could do and what I was putting my time and energy into. I started doing this as a hobby and creative outlet for myself since I love to make everything pretty lol.

Friends and family liked and commented how they always knew I was “talented” or they always knew I was creative mentioning my poetry as well. Some told me I should try to open a boutique, and it wasn’t long before other people in my hometown started commenting asking how much would I charge to customize something for them or their children (usually for birthdays, baby showers, Christmas)

I was shocked when money got involved because that’s not what I initially intended when I shared on Facebook. I didn’t even think my crafts were good enough that people would consider paying me, it was really just something I enjoyed doing and wanted to share.

I believe my first customer was a family member, my little cousin’s mother wanted some letters done for the kids’ bedroom.

Another family member wanted custom shoes and then clothing, then I started getting customers I didn’t know, people in different states. Things were moving very quickly, I had no idea what I was really doing or how to do it like a business, I didn’t know much about shipping to other states, I didn’t know what to expect if a customer wasn’t happy when they received their item, it was a lot of work, a lot to take in and do basically on my own.

I had help financially with some supplies, transportation to customers and post office thanks to my boyfriend at the time but other than that it was all me. Communicating to each new customer while having social anxiety was not easy but I had to do it, coming up with pricing, creating a portfolio, spending hours on a custom product hoping you don’t mess up and have to start over because that’s more money to spend, making sure it meets their expectations, these are just a few things. It would take an entirely new post to talk about the things to consider, things I didn’t know starting a small side hustle or business and the mistakes I made. But this post is just about the fun adventurous part.

Here is some of the work I did for customers:

LETTERS

Here you can see I wasn’t the best at doing boy items, I had to mainly add stickers lol and I was so nervous about those “spider webs” but it still turned out cool. This was one I did for a family member so I wasn’t as nervous as I could have been.

CLOTHING
This was one of the first clothing items I customized. It was just a practice run, it wasn’t made specifically for anyone.
I made this one for myself. “WAYS” stands for Why Aren’t You Smiling. It’s a song by Jhene Aiko and is one of the songs I listen to whenever I’m feeling the most down.Excuse my hair in the picture lol I had just washed it. This was back in those relaxed hair days, but after I did my first mini chop.I did baby customs, majority of my customers wanted onesies. I’ve done many and I’d love to show more but the clothing is something I’m really working on to improve for the future so i’ll wait until then.

SHOES

OTHERI actually made a post on these DIY bookmarks and candle jars. I’ll have to update it because some of the pictures were deleted.I was so in love with these phone cases I did! Since I love cases so much I should make one for my phone!I also made a post on this baby shower pin for my cousin who had twins… which I also need to update… Well, it looks like I know some things I can work on soon.

My cousin even let me do her graduation dress! Or was it prom? Either way, It was such a wonderful feeling knowing both her and her mother trusted me to do that. They trusted me with GLUE on her dress for a special moment. I was beyond nervous, I was worried, my hands were shaking. I guess you could say I barely trusted myself with this project. I didn’t ask her for permission to post her picture actually wearing it, so I’ll just show the dress.

I have so many other pictures but I didn’t want to include so many in one post.

                                                                       THE FALL
I was improving, I was gaining more and more customers, everything was growing but then I let a terrible incident in my life shut me completely down. I sent out my last orders and never went back. This incident changed me and was followed by a series of other unfortunate events. It had nothing to do with the start of my growing business but everything to do with life. I could have bounced back from it after a while but I found my love for blogging so I started my journey here instead. I had family members pay me to do a few things for them over time since they could get in touch with me but that was it. I really haven’t been on Facebook, it became draining after a while honestly.

People ask me will I get back into it, people quickly answer for me and say never but the truth is I don’t know. It’s one of those things I’d like to do once I get other things more important to me going. I also feel like if you do any type of comeback, especially after years, it has to be way better than before. You can’t come back with no improvements. That’s just my opinion.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Which DIY custom item is your favorite? Which do you think I should recreate? Are you into DIY projects?

One Celebrities Thoughts on Bloggers: Do Bloggers Create Stories To Destroy?!

As a blogger, we have a platform and we should use it to uplift and inspire others. That’s usually the goal for most of us, right? Many of you know Jhené Aiko is one of my greatest inspirations. One of the reasons is because she is so raw with her emotions and very down to earth. She inspired this post.


Photographer: @directedbyeyes on Instagram

March 16th was Jhené Aiko’s birthday, so last Friday I went on her Instagram to see if she had posted anything to her story or any new pictures. While I was scrolling through her pictures I came across a very long caption that caught my attention. Never mind the picture, the caption is most important here.

I’m not a celebrity or a huge public figure, and popular blogs don’t post articles about me but I can see where she is coming from. As a blogger, reading this made me feel a certain way because this can make bloggers as a whole be seen in a negative light. To know that someone that inspires me feels this way about bloggers even though she was specifically discussing gossip bloggers was almost uncomfortable. But it also made me want to “level up” and be MORE inspiring. To do more as an influencer and benefit humankind.

Celebrities are human too they just have a huge following and more money than most of us. Followers and money can’t solve all your problems, especially not the internal ones. It can be depressing and hard having to constantly read rumors about yourself whether false or true. I know if I read something that wasn’t true about myself and made me look a certain way in the public eye I’d be upset. Even if it was true, maybe I don’t want the world to know until I share my own story, you know?

Public figures sign up to be in the public eye, yes. This is what comes with it but as a blogger that is something I would never want associated with my name- gossip and rumors. Through her message you can see that she clearly feels strongly about this.

“Do these people know that the “celebrities” they harass daily are actually living, breathing people with families and children? Maybe these people feel their purpose is to entertain at the expense of others?”

A lot of the times people talk down on celebrities when they speak out like it’s a publicity stunt, everything isn’t a publicity stunt. Everything isn’t a cry for attention. They have feelings, insecurities and opinions just like we do. I personally like when they speak out because we can really see this.

I have read, been interested in and even believed some celebrity gossip articles but lately that’s not the type of content I want to feed my soul. I find that type of content usually makes me feel negative and often brings negative energy. Not just gossip blogs but even on YouTube, I’ve stopped watching many YouTube channels I use to enjoy, especially couple channels which have just been about drama lately.

I can’t tell you how to run your blog, your channel or whatever platform you have but regardless of the type of influencer you are, you should be influencing in a positive way, spreading love and light. This world already has enough negativity and darkness.

What do you think about Jhené Aiko’s caption? Or “rant” if you’d like to call it that. Do you feel you do enough as a blogger to inspire/influence others in a positive way? Answer the poll on my Twitter:

Over the weekend…✨

Over the weekend…

Over the weekend I did a bit more shopping. The reason I didn’t title this post the usual Weekend Pickups was because I literally only picked up 3 basic items, 2 pairs of jeans which I didn’t take pictures of and another cheap phone case which I did take pictures of. I think I’ll start taking pictures of my clothing item pickups while trying them on in the fitting rooms like I did with the maxi romper.

The phone case I got I picked up at Burlington (along with the jeans) the company or brand is called candywirez, affiliated with Case Study in Las Angeles, judging the packaging. I actually have no idea about this brand but I thought the cases were pretty cute for 8 bucks. One of the cases I saw had unicorns and rainbows on it but I decided on this clear sprinkles snap case.
I wanted to see if they had any others I might like online so I Googled “candywirez phone cases” and clicked on the first result, their website.

Let me tell you I was so shocked and disappointed at the cases and prices I saw. There wasn’t a good variety of cases, and they were priced for $25-35 dollars! Here is the exact same case I got for just $7.99 at Burlington. The case is pretty but thin and not very protective despite it being “military grade” so I believe what I paid was way more worth it, I’d never buy it for $35. I doubt any of you would either!

I was able to enjoy some cake which actually looks like the phone case I got lol.

On Saturday I was with family for a little get together, just chilling in the garage having a good time. There was a lot of talk about all the March birthdays and how we need to do a huge celebration. They’re planning on doing something this Friday. I’m kind of over it lol, it seems this has dragged on the whole month when I was all for partying and celebrating in the beginning but I’m sure everyone will have a good time again. I know a few people that celebrate their birthday for the entire month, it seems exciting yet draining to me. I think I could do a week long celebration though. Mine would include more chill, relaxing activities with a few more exciting ones. Actually, I’m already thinking about that ahead of time for my 25th birthday next year lol! I am determined to finally celebrate a birthday exactly how I planned. We’ll see.

How was your weekend? Did anything interesting happen? How long do you think you could celebrate your birthday before being worn out?
