So about a week ago I changed my url. But I noticed that my views drastically declined. I recently changed it back only to inform you all that I will be changing it as of March 1st to aliceshawwrites.BlogSpot.com

Its easier to remember and I like it more. Sorry I changed it before without telling you. It was incredibly stupid of me.

Dirty Diamonds


 You are so much more than your struggles, so much more than your scars, and so much more beautiful than you can fathom. And what you say and do have a greater impact on passer byers than you realize. In this universe there are so many people, with so many opinions, and at times you may feel crushed under the weight of the world. But you’re not alone. There are many others who scream in silent for help thinking they have no one to turn to.

This world at times can be a very evil place and I hate it just as much as the next at times. But I believe this world tries to snuff out the people who will have the greatest impact on this Earth before they realize their true potential. And that is why you must never give up. The stars cannot shine without the darkness, and pressure only turns black coal into breath taking diamonds.

 The future is a stunning mystery and it’s waiting for you. There is a God who has amazing plans for you, He wants you to use the voice you have been given. Once you accept that it will change your life and help you change the life of others around you.


You have not achieved anything in life until you

have done something for somebody that could

ever be paid back.

Update: Word

So my Microsoft Word spellchecker is still not working. My little brother used it last night for a school project and it worked for him. I think Microsoft has a conspiracy against me and doesn't want me to finish my manuscript...... life's not fair. And yes I've tried copying and pasting to a new document and still no precious red squiggly line. Maybe I'll just print what  I have and restart my computer and retype it. I feel like my life is the epitome of Murphy's Law. Why?

SO MUCH FUSTRATION

I AM WRITING IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE I'M ANGRY. MY SPELL CHECK ON WORD ISN'T WORKING AND I KNOW I HAVE MISSPELLED WORDS AND GRAMMAR ERRORS BUT I CAN'T FIND THEM ALL BECAUSE I HAVE 10,487 WORDS AND I JUST NOW NOTICED IT!

WHY DOES MICROSOFT EVEN HAVE THAT OPTION?? WHY WOULD PEOPLE WANT BAD GRAMMER AND MISSPELLED WORDS. WHYYY!!! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN! WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS HORRIBLE FATE!?!?!?

ALL I WANT TO DO IS MAKE MY DREAMS COME. WRITE, DRINK COFFEE AND LISTEN TO MUSIC IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR.

IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO FIX IT PLEEEEASSE HELP ME!!!

Sincerely,
Me

Resolutions are pointless

So I've been thinking about "New Years Resolutions". And I think they are extra large jar of stupid sauce. I mean all the power to you if you achieve your goals that you establish January 1st by the next January 1st.
But let's be honest, the majority of us get so excited for the new and fresh start. But do we really get a fresh start? We can't run from our past, so why try to forget it? Yes it's a new year and the thought that there is so much more life to live is exciting. We should not be ashamed for what we did not achieve in the past years, but look foward to all the years you have to achieve them.
I don't like new years resolutions because I feel like it puts an expiration date on my success, and the best things take the longest to achieve. Orginally I was going to finish my book for my new years resolution but I started thinking, why would add a due date. It's only going to cause me stress.
If I finish my book within the year then I'll throw a party, if not, I'm not going worry about it. I love the freedom of being able to do what I want when I want, and not being bound to conventional standards. It's so liberating to know that I have a lifetime to achieve my dreams. I obviously want to finish my book as soon as possible but it's going to be on my own time. If it takes longer than a year it will be because my whole heart, mind, and soul went into it. I will not be put into the social box of "New Years Resolutions"
