An app story

I was going through my phone apps and tried to login to an old one called, Write Now! It gave you the beginning of a story and a set number of words to finish it in. Unfortunately it’s not working anymore, which blows the big bubble because it was a really fun app. I deleted it but saved this story I wrote because I thought it was nice.

1,2 Share your world

Saw this on Cee’s photography blog and thought I’d give it a go.

Week 1:

How do you get rid of pesky phone calls from telemarketers?

Give the phone to my husband who does great accents including one in ‘alien’ that really cracks me up.

What are you a “natural” at doing?

Not sure… sleeping?

How often do you get a haircut?

Once a year.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

“F is for friends that do stuff together, U is for U and me, N is for N-E where, N-E time and all down here in the deep blue sea…” –Spongebob Squarepants

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Grateful for everything. Looking forward to finishing more projects.

Week 2:

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

Definitely a hugger.

What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?

So. Many. Flavors. Can’t. Choose. Aaaaarrrggghhh!

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?

Both. I try to do some kind of workout at least 6 times a week (mainly yoga) and I read and play word games every day to werq my mind.

Are you more of a dog person or a cat person? Why?

Dog. I value loyalty and happiness over sass and aloofness.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Grateful that I finished some work up, and looking forward to doing more.

If you can’t say something nice…

One of my things on my 2015 to-do list is to be more positive. That said…

I do crossfit at this one place and they have this routine that they do before we start every class. We all stand in a circle, introduce ourselves and then answer some kind of question.

So this morning our question was something along the lines of: what positive thing would you say about someone you dislike?

All eyes were on me and crap. I couldn’t think of one damned thing. Not one. Shame on me right? But it is seriously hard. It’s been hours and I still can’t think of one nice thing to say about that one person I was thinking about. So now that question belongs to you. Think about a person that you absolutely despise– just cannot stand at all for whatever reason, and then find one positive thing to say about them. If you can do it, you’re a better person than me.

As for me, I’ll still be working on it.

Happy 2015

I’ve been wanting to say that for days, but on top of the hardcore cleaning that my family and I “like” to do (something I learned from my Hawaiian grandparents who wanted their house to sparkle before every new year) our power went out, and the Internet threw in its panties right along with it. It’s all ‘g’ though (yeah I’m showing my age, but so what gonfunnit?) the high winds that we got the other night brought us this:

Mauna Kea 1.4.2015

Mauna Kea 1.4.2015

And the power going out? Meh, it wasn’t that bad. We played ‘can’t-catch-me’ with the dull rays of our flashlights, listened to the oldest boy play music and giggled about silly things most of the night. Times like that make me appreciate the simple things in life.

Anywho, I wish you the best year ever and hope that you keep on pushing to do all the things you set out to do this year.

Aloha and Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!
