I Hear Voices Blog Challenge



Emily—my biggest vulnerability is the fact that I am a faerie princess, in exile. I meant for this to be a secret, but some girls at school—the ever popular “mean girls” stole my journal as a joke and found out what I am. To make things worse, one of their boyfriends kissed me—just out of the blue. Imagine how they feel about me now.

People believe that I am a huge freak. That I believe in faeries and a world that intersects  ours, that I am a “dreamer” and someone who wouldn’t know reality if it bit her on the nose! Maybe they’re right. I have a tiny dragon that lives in my motel room, and a griffin parked on the roof. I know where the wizards and witches live in the city. I’ve seen angels and demons and every kind of fae disguised walking down the street.

My best friend, Morgan, is like me. Artistic, creative, misunderstood and broody. She’s an artist (and a really good one) but she always tells me what a romantic idiot I am. Like this guy I really liked turned out to be a real jerk and broke up with me by text message—TEXT MESSAGE! Is that lame, or what? But like a fool, I keep thinking about him and wondering why he even liked me in the first place—and vice versa. I guess I have a hard time letting things go

Morgan would say my best redeeming quality would be my faith in magic, and myself. I know what I am. I know there’s a secret world around us—I’ve seen it, I’ve lived it, I’ve been there.  

It’s hard for me to think about what I want the most. I want to be able to live in a world where I won’t be chased and taunted by mean girls, where we can stop living on ramen every night and maybe get a real apartment in a good neighborhood and not live out of a hotel room. Morgan and I are hotel kids—old enough to be on our own, but still abandoned by the world from parents who left. Yet, we’re still young enough to miss and want parents, and have become our own little family. We want the same things everyone else does: love, acceptance, family.  I want to reclaim my birthright as a faerie princess. At least for now.

The not so final word on 50 shades

There's a lot of hype, in case you've lived under a rock, about 50 Shades of Grey. Perhaps you've heard of this book somewhere? Well, I've heard mixed reviews about it and I found out a few facts that were puzzling to me.
One--that this book started out as Twilight fan fic. Say what?! What's amazing is that someone thought that writing Twilight fan fic was a GOOD idea. Second...really? Apparently the characters are so close in personality to the infamous Twilight characters, that would be enough to turn me off. Ana is a self-depreciating weak willed character who lets her life be run by Edward. I mean, Christian. I hate weak female characters that stay weak through the whole series. It's okay if you begin a story weak, then experience something, then learn from it, then change into someone stronger, but to not learn anything at all about yourself and always put a guy's needs in front of yours all the time is just plain silly and sends really the wrong mess…

Adele's story continues....


There's been a lot of speculation over the years about the existence of the secret branch of the government, specifically the FBI, known as the X Files. A government agency dedicated to strange, unusual, and possibly the paranormal. What better place to hide this supposed branch of government, but a stretch of desert that no one cares about and no one really knows exists (and pro…
