To Be or Not To Be

There are so many things that I could be.

  1. Author

Writing is my passion. I blog, I write poems, I write songs, I write storeys, I’m working on another book. The list goes on. I have been writing for a long time and it really helps me get rid of things that Idon’t want in my life and things that I need to move on from. When something happens with a friend… I write about it. When something happens in my family… I write about it. There was a really hard part of my life that probably lots of people go through and I want to be able to write about it and let the people that are going through it know that there are other people out there who go through the same thing. Writing can help you and other people get through things that are hard and I want to be able to do that and make a difference in some one’s life because of a book. That’s why I want to be an author.

   2. Hair Stylist

I like to be creative and use colour in things. Working with hair helps make other people feel good about how they look and its just so much fun. My mom and sister have friends who are hair dressers and my mom’s friend went to Paris to study painting and is in art school. My sisters friend is really creative and cool and does my sisters hair and it looks awesome. I just really want to be a hair stylist because its so fun and is a great way to be creative and meet some really interesting people.

  3. Motor Cross Racer

This one probably sounds ridiculous because a lot of people think that this kind of thing is for guys. Well no its not just for guys. I have been interested in motor cross racing for a while and ,unfortunately, I will not get the chance to ride as a kid. One because there is no place to ride. Two because the bikes are WAY to expensive. The chance of a life time is what I call it and even though I will most likely never make it close to going pro it would still be an awesome job to have.

  4. A Math Professor

Ah math. To most kids they run away from math and hate it but for me math is the best. Math and Science are my favorite subjects and I am pretty good at it. I like doing equations and chemistry. If not math I want tobe a chemist or something with computers. Math is just so cool and you can solve so many things with different math equations or rules.

  5.A Singer

Just like ever other little girl I always wanted t be a pop star. As I got older I got interested in differant kinds of music. I now want to be in a band or be a solo artist. I write songs adn play guitar and piano. I really enjoy playing music. I want to one day be successful in the music buisness.

I love listening to music and finding new music to listen to. When I write a post about music I want to find out what your listening to so I decided to make a survey about music! Finding new music is like finding a new best friend. It sticks with you through thick and thin and is always there to lean on. So, what’s your tune?

Our song

Haley and I are really good friends and together we write really good songs.

The first time I went to her new house I realized she had drums in her basement. She said they were her brothers. So we asked Her brother if we can use them and he said “As long as you don’t break them”. So we went down stairs and she showed me a beat she had made and I realized all of the guitars. I said ” This is gonna be fun!”. She got out one of her guitars and she started playing a song and I came up with a beat. Haley run into a different room and came back with a piece of paper. She started to write something down. “What are you writing?” I asked. She gave the piece of paper to me. I read it and I figured out that they were lyrics to a song. “This is going to be great!” I said.

Since then Haley and I have been working on songs together and will be singing our song “Let Go” at our school talent show if its ready.
