Rereading Joys and Tennis

So everyone, I'm rereading the Harry Potter series for the 5th time.... I've read them four times already so it's fun to see what new things I notice on this run through. I haven't picked up a HP book since I was in 5th grade actually, so it's good to read them again. That's crazy though! That means that I read Harry Potter four times before my middle school days... how. Sorry about the rambling in this post, I am sorta living on caffeine right now, so my mind must be affected :) So today we had a tennis match. Before today's match our team was undefeated and we still are! Huzzah for us! My partner, her name is July too (same name) and I had a challenge and we came back and tied it from 0-4 to 4-4 and then we ended up losing. But that's ok because we both played well and our team one the match so that was happy! Plus July, my partner, has a Caviler King Charles Spaniel that is six months old and it was there and I petted it! Yay, that is my favorite typ…

Hello everybody!

I'm sorry, I haven't been ignoring you all, I've just been busy with tennis, homework, and other school things that I'm involved with. So just a reminder, the Sentence Story contest ends tomorrow but I may consider extending it because I've only received a few entries. What kind of a challenge is that :) Click here for original details. I've enjoyed reading all the entries so far, and can't wait to read more!!! The prize is a guest post here, how exciting :O



Before we get to the "If I Were" tag and bookie things, I'll tell you about just a couple other things.
First of all, my dad hurt himself at work a couple of weeks ago and he had to get it checked out. He found out that he needed surgery. And so he had his surgery scheduled for the day before he and my mom's birthday (yes they share a birthday)... poor guy. The recovery is six months long and he won't be able to work until he is fully recovered, so please pray for …

Sentence Story Contest!

Hello everyone! As some of you might recognize, this is the Sentence Story that a number of us wrote last year! Thank you all who participated in that! So we only got so far, and I thought it would be fun to have a contest of who could wrap up the story the best! It is only open to you if you participated in writing the original story, so sorry about that, but it's only fair, but don't worry!, I will start another one soon. All you have to do is write an ending that corresponds to the story and don't change anything that we have already written. The prize is a guest post on my blog (yaya) and if you want, you can start the first sentence of the new Sentence Story that I will be starting after this is over. I ask that if you participate, send your entry to julya.emmance@gmail.com by September 27 and good luck! If you have any questions, please comment below and I will answer them as soon as possible. Have fun, and get writing an amazing ending!

Light Blue- July ;D

Yesterday, In Which I Almost Died

Image
Hello! I'm sure you're all wondering about the title... was I almost empaled by a raging buffalo in the dollar store? No. Was I almost roasted on a pole by some savage pirates? No. It was simply on the way home from the grocery store, I had bought myself some Gobstoppers, and I was sucking on one. All of the sudden it went down my throat and I was like, "Choke, choke, choke." I actually didn't say that, but I was like trying to breath but the marble shaped object was blocking my airway... I was making funny noises trying to either get it back up or get it down. So finally, I felt it slowly slide down my throat. That is a feeling that you do not want to experience... it hurts! I could breathe again, but I really needed a drink, and I could feel the Gobstopper in my chest... it still wasn't quite down yet... I looked in the mirror and my face was all purple from lack of breath, not for too long, but long enough to make me slightly resemble a grape...
As soon as…
