The Science of Magic

The Science of Magic: Mermaids ~ In Which I Act Like a Fancy Scientist

Unsplash does not have good mermaid images.

Anywho, welcome to a brand new series, and the first one on my blog! Before we get started, I would like to point out that I am no scientist, and all the points I make in this series are simply from common sense and flawless deductive reasoning.

*bursts out laughing*

Well, this post is already a mess XD

How about a little bit of background before we jump in?

This series is going to be about the logic of magical creatures from mythology and pop culture. I’m going to point out some of the things wrong with them, and my theories of how these problems could be improved. Maybe even erased. I’ll post one “episode” each month, covering whatever creature comes to mind.

Are you ready for more rambling?

Let’s go!!

Mermaids originated in many different countries as part of their mythology. One of the earliest known myths involving mermaids is an Assyrian myth of the goddess Atargatis. She changed herself into a mermaid out of shame for killing her human lover.

Mermaids are typically described as having the upper body of a woman and the tail of a fish. Contrary to the Disney mermaids, they don’t wear seashells. Where on earth did the mermaids find the string? So many inconsistencies.

Mermaids started out as neutral beauties that were rarely spotted, but as the tales started to gain momentum, they began to take on similar characteristics to the Sirens from Greek mythology. They could sing a haunting tune and enchant their listener into swimming towards them, eventually exhausting himself and drowning in the rough waves. In other stories, mermaids can control the weather and can bring entire ships down with a few huge waves. (Maybe that’s what happened to King Agnar and Queen Iduna in Frozen) Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid paints mermaids as decent creatures, who are treated unfairly by everyone.

He’s probably the only one in pre-modern times who thought that.

My main question about mermaids is: How do they reproduce? Giving birth has got to be difficult, especially underwater. I mean, it could be similar to how whales reproduce, but I don’t exactly know how whales give birth, and whales aren’t mermaids. Google is not being helpful today.

I think mermaids can shape-shift into a human form (which adds more holes in the fantasy fabric, but we’re going to ignore those), and they go on land when it’s time to give birth. Then, they take their little mermaid babies underwater to learn to swim.

Sounds plausible, right?

Sure.

Something else I have questions about: Why did mermaids steal the attributes of Greek Sirens? That’s plagiarism!! Because of this, many people mistake Sirens as mermaids, which they’re not! Sirens are actually half bird, half woman — not half fish, half woman. There’s a bit of a difference.

Sorry. I get a little annoyed when people get Greek mythology wrong.

Okay, now let’s move on to design flaws.

Many people, when they draw mermaids, stick to the classic Disney look. However, mermaids are fish, which means they need more fins than the ones that are at the end of their tail. They need a dorsal fin along their backs to help them cut through the water. They need bigger tail fins to push them through the water. After all, the size tail Disney gave them isn’t nearly big enough to help them swim as fast as they need to. Also, depending on how you’re designing them, they might need a pelvic fin along their front, like fish, and some fins on their sides.

Another thing: Gills. Where do the gills go? Because, since they can live under the water, they have to have gills. And when gills come into the conversation, that creates a lot of flaws in the worldbuilding of The Little Mermaid. If they have gills, they wouldn’t need to open their mouth except to talk. They wouldn’t even need a nose, really. And if they don’t have gills, they would have to surface to breathe, which ruins King Triton’s plans of keeping his daughters from going to the surface. Unless he had a much darker plan……

*gulps*

Their ears and eyes need protection too. After all, what happens to our ears and eyes when we stay underwater for long enough? Our eyes start to hurt and our ears get clogged with water (speaking from painful experience). Mermaids need protection from these things. They would need a thick cornea, and a layer of skin over top, like fish have, ultimately making them kind of unattractive. Their ears would need to be practically invisible, like fish ears, to be able to function.I don’t know about you, but I think they would look strange with invisible ears.

I could go on and on, but this post has gotten a little long. In conclusion, mermaid logic is difficult, and it makes it even more impossible for them to exist. There are multiple flaws in their current designs and stories. Fortunately, that makes it fun to invent your own type of mermaid for your story. Still, be careful not to make a mistake as you brainstorm.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know your thoughts on this series, and leave some ideas for what fantasy creature I should do next!

Thanks for reading!!

My Writing

Meet My MC: A Writers Linkup ~ In Which I Talk About My Children

Those ink blots on the paper ^^ are concerning.

Anyways, today I am doing a writers linkup hosted by Maya Joelle!

I’ve never done a linkup before but this one looks pretty fun. However, I have close to fifty WIPs (works-in-progress), so choosing one MC is going to be hard.

*thinks*

Okay, I think I’m going to do Violet, from my main WIP, Masters of Fate. Let’s get on with it!!

1. Introduce Your MC. What’s Their Name? Age? Appearance?

Violet Blake is a 14-year-old girl living in the fantasy village of Moonstone Village. She’s an outcast at her school because everyone is convinced she’s weird. She acts shy and nervous, but she’s really just insecure because she’s the only one in her village who has elemental powers, and she has to keep them a secret from the townsfolk. She can summon plants from the ground with the snap of her fingers. She has long brown hair and a shy expression.

Here’s her faceclaim:

And one that more of matches the story:

So, yeah, that’s Violet.

And yes, I named the girl with plant powers Violet. That’s how it works around here, folks.

2. Explain How Your MC Fits Into the Plot of Your Book (as Best You Can Without Spoiling It All…)

Well, Violet is outcast and feels weird. She gets a mysterious note, telling her to go to a neighboring city to participate in a tournament for people like her. She decides to go, and makes new friends and enemies at the tournament, learning secrets about her past that she didn’t know, and helping bring a criminal man to justice.

It’s intense.

Like camping.

Lemme know if you got that joke.

3. What’s the First Thing Your MC Says in the Story? The Last? A Random Quote From the Middle That You Like?

Give me a second to pull up the doc.

Well, she sighs.

Then, she says, “Hey, Aunt Louise!”

….

That’s not that exciting is it? XD

The book hasn’t been finished yet, but the most recent thing she says is “You mean you haven’t been paying attention to the way we’ve been going?!”

Yeah, she gets lost in some underground tombs, and her “tour guide” doesn’t know where to go. *shrugs* There’s a lot of twists and turns.

A random quote from the middle that I like has the be the song that Violet’s mom writes for her. It actually has a tune and everything which will probably end up being in the back of the book if it’s published. However, I think I may have to change some parts of the tune because I’m pretty sure I accidentally borrowed some parts of the tune from a Jamie Grace song…..😅 I promise I didn’t know until I heard the song!

Okay, moving on!

4. Which Other Character Would Die For Your MC?

Ahaha….there’s a lot of those…..her best friend, Harmony; her crush, Ryan; her teacher, April Rock……her dad and her aunt……

She’s loved by a lot of people, actually.

5. Would Your MC Die For Them?

Oh, in a heartbeat.

6. Have Any Major Details About Your MC Changed Since You First Created Them?

Hmm…..I’m not sure. I feel like she’s really stuck to the idea I had for her, which is a surprise since my characters prefer to write themselves. Ryan turned out different though.

However, the story is not about him.

7. What Characters (From Books/Movies Not By You) Remind You of Your MC? Why?

Ooh. I’ve never thought about this before.

In a way, she reminds me of Elsa. She has powers, she’s been hiding them, and then she runs away to let them loose.

Actually, that makes her a lot like Elsa, doesn’t it?

8. Share Your MC’s Favorites!

This is where I really need to flesh her out.

Okay, here we go.

Color: Green (obviously)

Food: Snopfot, which is technically a drink, but it’s her favorite.

Type of Clothing: Just your casual fantasy outfit. Like in her second faceclaim up there ^^

Place: Her room. She feels safe there and it’s her hangout zone. She can be as messy as she wants.

Type of Music: I have no idea. The only music that has been in the book is the song her mom wrote. Which was…..a lullaby, I guess?

Season: Spring!

Smell: Anything her aunt cooks.

9. If Your MC Wasn’t Involved In Your Story, What Would They Be Doing?

This has always been really hard for me. Imagining my characters outside of their book life.

She would be a….florist.

Nope. Nope, nope, nope.

Maybe…..I think she’d probably work in an animal shelter or a zoo. Or an animal reserve! She loves animals.

10. Share a Fun Extra!

Well, one of my friends made this collage for Violet:

Violet, Master of Nature

There’s also these for Harmony and Ryan:

Harmony, Master of Healing
Ryan, Master of Fire

I love them so much!! They’re so pretty!

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know Violet! This was actually really fun to write (more fun than I thought it was going to be!)

What do you guys think? Would this be a story you would want to read?

Thanks for reading!!

My Five Favorite Broadway Musicals ~ In Which I Forget What Les Miz is About

Broadway.

One of the most prestigious theaters in the world.

I recently became obsessed with Broadway, and I’ve listened to a boatload of musicals. However, there is the choice few that manage to make it to the top of my list. In this post, I’m going to name five Broadway musicals that I love, the reasons why I like them, and what character I would want to play if I ever got the chance to perform in that musical.

So, without further ado, let’s get started!

1. Hamilton

Hamilton was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who also played the title character in the original production. The musical is about the life and times of American founding father Alexander Hamilton. The first act illustrates the Revolutionary War and the second act illustrates Hamilton’s rise and fall in the Presidential Cabinet.

Even though this is one of my favorite musicals, I wouldn’t recommend listening to it, as there are several situations where they swear really badly, and some sexual mentions.

Reasons For Liking It

The music is SPOT ON. SPOT ON. Plus, the raps are so quick, perfect, synchronized, rhyming…..I could go all day. Plus, the character development in all the characters is really good!

Who Would I Audition For?

If given the opportunity, I would audition for either Eliza or Angelica. I love both of their characters and songs, and I feel like they would be so much fun to play!

2. Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen was written by Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul. It’s about a highschooler named Evan Hansen who is having a hard time in life. He doesn’t have any friends at school, and most people treat him like he’s invisible. His therapist tells him to write letters to himself, describing all the things that are going to make the day great. Most of the time, the letters talk about Evan’s crush, Zoe. Evan tries to make friends with Zoe’s brother, Connor, but Connor finds one of Evan’s letters and thinks that Evan is making fun of him. Connor takes the letter, and a few days later, he’s found dead with Evan’s letter in his pocket. Connor’s parents try to get to the bottom of the note, and Evan lies and says that he and Connor were great friends, emailing from a secret email account. Evan is visited by Connor’s ghost, who tells him that “no one deserves to be forgotten.” Evan, along with two family friends, starts a charity called “The Connor Project”, which tells people that they are worth something. The Connor Project goes viral, and Evan’s lies start to get harder and harder to handle. Before long, everything spirals out of control, and Evan is left feeling alone and broken. However, by the end of the musical, Evan has made a strong connection with all the important people in his life, and the story ends on a happy note.

There’s only a little bit of minor swearing sprinkled into a couple of songs, and most of the songs are uplifting and encouraging!

Reasons For Liking It

The writers took special care to present anxiety and depression in ways that aren’t triggering to the vast majority of people. The music is fantastic (The composers, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the soundtrack for The Greatest Showman), and some of the songs (You Will Be Found, Disappear, Waving Through a Window) are so much fun to sing, and they bring tears to my eyes every time.

Who Would I Audition For?

Zoe. I love her. She’s so strong and sweet, and she’s one of two female characters that aren’t adults.

3. Waitress

I don’t know much about this musical, since I’ve only listened to it once, but the music was beautiful, which really grabbed my attention. Waitress is about a waitress named Jenna, who is in an abusive marriage. She gets pregnant against her will, and the three main characters spiral through several emotions before the musical’s close. At the end of the musical, Jenna has gotten out of her marriage, and has a happy, healthy baby girl.

Reasons For Liking It

I don’t like the storyline that much, and I definitely don’t like the characters, but the music was the reason I fell in love with this musical. The tunes are pretty, and the lyrics are weird in some places, but I really love the instrumentals!

Who Would I Audition For?

I don’t know. Jenna? Like I said, I don’t really like these characters that much.

4. Aladdin

Aladdin is a Disney movie that was remade into a Broadway musical. The musical follows almost the exact same storyline as the movie but it includes a couple of deleted characters, scenes, and songs. Also, one thing I really noticed was that the original version and the Junior version were vastly different. *shrugs*

Reasons For Liking It

It’s Aladdin!!

Who Would I Audition For?

I think the answer is obvious…..Jasmine!

5. Les Miserables

Les Miserables is confusing, even after reading the Wikipedia article, so I’ll do my best here. There’s this woman whose daughter, Cosette, is under the guardianship of the owner of an inn and his wife. The woman dies while trying to earn some extra money. Cosette grows up and meets a handsome guy named Marius while out getting water. The guy’s old girlfriend, Eponine, gets jealous and then dies somewhere in the musical. Marius and Cosette get married and everyone who didn’t die lives happily ever after.

That’s accurate enough.

Reasons For Liking It

Literally every person I’ve met who likes musicals likes this one. Even my dad, and he’s not that big of a Broadway fan. When I listened to it for the first time, I didn’t think I’d like it that much, but I fell in love with it! The music is pretty, even though it isn’t as contemporary as some of the other musicals on this list, and it’s repetitive, like musicals should be.

Plus, the story is pretty great.

Who Would I Audition For?

Probably Eponine. Or Cosette. Or both.

I hope you guys enjoyed this list of random musicals! It was fun to write, and now I’ve made myself want to listen to them again XD

What are your favorite musicals? (POTO is going to be a popular answer, I can smell it) What do you think of the musicals on my list?

Thanks for reading!

Do I Have That Book? Challenge ~ In Which I Attempt to Have That Book

Soooo…..I’ve once again broken the rules on a blog tag. I wasn’t tagged for this.

Now, before you place your hands on your hips and shake a finger at me for being such a naughty girl, LET ME JUST SAY that my best friend, Liesl, did this post, and left it open for anyone. So, I saw an opportunity, and took it.

Now, take those hands off of your hips!

Also, I was supposed to time myself while I looked for these books, but…..what’s the point? Why would I want to do that? I pretty much have my whole bookshelf memorized.

So, without further ado, let’s see if I have that book!!!

1. A Book With Tattered Edges

Not gonna lie, I actually had to get up and go check my bookshelf for a book with tattered edges. *facepalm* All that talk about having my bookshelf memorized…..

Anyways, I came up with this:

These Happy Golden Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder

This is my favorite book by Laura Ingalls Wilder, and I’ve read it more than all the others. However, we have an old box set of the series, and the pages are yellowed and brittle, which means they tear easily. I’ve read this book so much, half of the cover is ripped off, several pages are torn or falling out, and the spine is bent.

What can I say? It’s a great book!

2. A Book With 3+ People on the Cover

Okay, this time I didn’t have to check my bookshelf.

The Warden And the Wolf King by Andrew Peterson

My dad, who is a massive Andrew Peterson fan, bought these books for me and my brother. I haven’t actually read this one yet, but it’s on my shelf. I can count the little wolf boy Kalmar (who is still Tink to me) as a human, right?

3. A Book Based on Another Fictional Story

Had to check my bookshelf again.

The Olympians Series by George O’Connor

When I read this series, I was impressed by George O’Connor’s masterful retellings of the Greek myths. (If you know me, you know that I LOOOOVE Greek mythology) He weaved several of the myths into a seamless story, with each book focusing on a god or goddess. Plus, his artwork is INCREDIBLE. Just look at this!! What a masterpiece!

4. A Book With a Ten-Letter-Long Title

Google is my friend when I’m too lazy to walk to my room.

Ember Falls by S.D. Smith

Yeah, I haven’t read this one either. Still working on the first book in this series. Also, those rabbits have incredibly human-like hands. This concerns me.

5. A Book With a Title That Starts And Ends With the Same Letter

Ah, young love.

Elsie’s True Love by Martha Finley. Adapted by Mission City Press.

The Elsie Dinsmore series was written in the 1860s, and a publishing company took the original manuscripts and rewrote them for us millenials. Wasn’t that thoughtful? Elsie is a Christian girl growing up in the Antebellum South without anyone to love her except her Heavenly Father. She goes through some hard times, but this book is by far my favorite.

What can I say? I’m a romantic!!

My sister and I have been slowly collecting the entire series over the years. We’re only missing one book.

6. A Mass-Market Paperback

See, I’m not sure about this one. I have several books that are 4″ x 7″, but Google isn’t clear on what exactly a mass-market paperback is.

So, I guess I’ll pass on this one.

7. A Book by an Author With a Pen-Name

*Googles several books*

The Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene

Considering how “Carolyn Keene” is still writing books to this day, I think it’s safe to say that she does not exist. I discovered this fact awhile back and was shocked to the core.

SLOWLY BUT SURELY, MY CHILDHOOD IS BEING DESTROYED

Sorry. Teenager rants.

8. A Book With a Character’s Name in the Title

*tries not to choose an Elsie book* *halfway succeeds*

Millie’s Unsettled Season by Martha Finley. Adapted by Mission City Press.

This is another 1860s book, written and adapted by the same people. Millie lives in the Antebellum North, and is actually Elsie’s cousin. She has to move from Lansdale, Ohio to the frontier in Indiana.

I can’t stand Millie because she deals with so many problems (even though we’re both the oldest of eight), but she is more relatable than Elsie. If any of you guys know both characters, I’d be interested in hearing your opinions.

9. A Book With Two Maps

Um….

WHAT?!!

Why would there be a book with two maps?!!! THAT’S OVERKILL probably.

Hold on, let me check.

*elevator music*

*Jeopardy! music*

Well, what do you know!

I do have a book with two maps!!

On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson

One in the front, and one in the back!

*laughs nervously* So…two maps is cool, right?

10. A Book That’s Been Turned Into a TV Show

*desperately does not want to say Anne of Green Gables*

*also doesn’t want to say Nancy Drew*

*or Little House on the Prairie*

AHA!!

Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne

This book has been made into a series of movies by Disney, and they used to have a show on Disney Jr. called “My Friends Tigger and Pooh”

(It’s horrible. Don’t watch it.)

11. A Book By an Author Famous For Something Other Than Or In Addition to Writing

Oh my word. This is going to take some thinking.

Heehee….see what I did there? Huh? Heh heh.

Uh….

The Secret Thoughts of and Unlikely Convert by Rosaria Butterfield

I’m not sure how well this counts, but Rosaria Butterfield was a pretty famous English professor before she started writing.

12. A Book With a Clock on the Cover

Oh, wait.

I should have put that Nancy Drew book here instead of up there.

One sec.

….

The Mandie Collection Volume Two by Lois Gladys Leppard

So, this is technically my sister’s book, but it’s on my shelf, so it counts. And, there’s not necessarily a clock on the cover, but they’re inside a clock. It counts, right?

13. A Book of Poetry

Aha!

Childcraft Collection Volume One: Poems From Early Childhood

The Childcraft collection was my mom’s, then she passed them down to me. This book is full of nursery rhymes, and it’s pretty old. See if you can guess which nursery rhymes/fairy tales are pictured on the cover!

(I don’t even know all of them)

14. A Book With an Award Stamp on the Cover

Um….actually, I’m not sure about this one…..

So, I just spent five minutes scouring all my books, and NOT ONE has an award stamp.

However, we mostly have paperback books, and the ones that are hardback are missing the jackets, so I could be wrong.

Oh well.

15. A Book Whose Author Has the Same Initials as You

This should be fun.

….

Okay, I’ve been sitting here for ten minutes, trying to think of any authors that match my initials, browsing every single book in our house, and nothing. *shrugs* Oh well.

16. A Short Story Collection

Aha, again!

Childcraft Collection Volume Four: Animal Friends and Adventures

Another Childcraft book! This time, it’s a collection of short stories. Pretty good, if I do say so myself.

17. A Book That Is 500-510 Pages Long

Uggggh. BRB.

So. I have books that are 580 pages long. I have books that are 300 pages long. I have books that are 498 pages long! And yet, this is the closest I could find.

Stories for Girls: Classic Tales to Treasure

This is an anthology of short stories and novel excerpts. I’ve had it for several years, and THAT COVER IS JUST GORGEOUS OH MY GOODNESS

It’s 512 pages, but that’s close enough, right?

18. A Book That’s Been Turned Into a Movie

A movie, you say?

The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom

I’ve never seen the actual movie, but I would like to. I mean, this book is fantastic! I was just in awe when I read it for the first time. Incredibly inspiring.

19. A Graphic Novel

Hmm….the Olympians series would fit here, wouldn’t it?

NEVER FEAR!!! THERE’S STILL FIVE BOOKS THAT WEREN’T FEATURED IN THE BOX SET!!

Hermes: Tales of the Trickster by George O’Connor

Seriously, I can’t rave over these books enough!!

20. A Book Written by Two or More Authors

AHAHAHA

The Entire Childcraft Series

Does this suffice?

What are y’all’s thoughts on my list of books? Do you have any of them? Let me know! I’d love to chat!

Thanks for reading!

Blog Tags

The Blogmas Tag ~ In Which We Learn That I Can’t Follow Rules

Eek! I almost missed my posting day! That would have been bad!

I was tagged by the lovely Mary @ Wild Writing Dreams for my very first BLOG TAGGGGG!!!!! You guys have no idea how happy I was to be tagged! So, Happy New Year, and let’s do a Christmas tag!

Also, I fell asleep at 3 in the morning, so sorry about the ramblyness.

The Rules

1. Thank the person who tagged you and link to their post. ✔

2. Put the rules after the introduction. ✔

3. Answer the 12 questions. ✔

4. Tag 12 people to do the tag. (Ehe, no, sorry. I don’t know enough bloggers to tag XD)

5. Create all new questions of your own to ask the people you tag. (Since I’m not tagging, no need to come up with new questions, right?)

ANYWAYS, now that we all know I’m a rulebreaker, let’s get started!

1. What Is a Go-To Christmas Drink For You?

Hmm…..I really don’t drink anything different than what I drink throughout the year.

Water. Just straight water.

I’m exciting.

2. What is Your Favorite Christmas Movie?

DEFINITELY a Charlie Brown Christmas. I mean, PEANUTS

I’ve literally read almost every single Peanuts comic strip in existence, and I love them so much! The Christmas movies are amazing, and we watch them every year!

3. What’s One Tradition You Have During Christmastime or on Christmas Itself?

Um…..we have a lot of Christmas traditions…..I think my favorite is…..going out to look at lights on Christmas Eve, and opening one present before bed.

Or, maybe it’s when all my siblings come to my room and wait for our parents to wake up, which isn’t really a tradition per se, but it happens every year.

4. Top Favorite Christmas Song?

Haha, I already have a post about my favorite Christmas songs here. Of course, I’ve heard more Christmas songs since then, so that isn’t a completely accurate post, right now, but it’s mostly accurate.

5. Do You Do Any Special Christmas Activities (ex: Elf on the Shelf, Kris Kringle, etc.)?

Um…..no.

OH, wait, yes we do!!

We have a pickle ornament, and, before we open presents, someone hides it in the tree, and the first person to find it gets to open the first present! It’s a lot of fun, and sometimes the searches go on for 10+ minutes!

6. Do You Get a Tree For Christmas? And If So, Is It Real or Artificial? 

Yes, we get a tree every year, usually on the day after Thanksgiving. It’s ALWAYS a live tree, because we would throw a fit if we had to get an artificial tree. Usually, we have a hard time deciding which tree to get, but it’s always special setting up the tree and hanging all the ornaments.

7. What Is the Coolest Christmas Gift You’ve Ever Given to Someone?

Um….well….I made scrapbooks for my siblings this past Christmas. That was a challenge.

8. Do You Have Any Kind of Special Food You Eat During December or on Christmas?

We have donuts and pigs-in-a-blanket for breakfast every Christmas morning. I can’t remember a time we didn’t have it. Plus, that’s usually the only time we have those things, which is nice.

9. What Holiday Dessert Would Best Describe You And Why?

My, my, this most certainly is an interesting question. This should be fun to answer.

*thinks hard*

I think I’m most like banana pudding. Not because it describes me, but because I really like it.

Okay, fine, I’ll do it for real.

Probably gingerbread cookies, because I’m spicy and sweet, and you only see me once a year.

Okay, maybe not that last part, but you get my drift.

10. What Are Your Thoughts On Snow?

Snow? What’s snow? Is it that wet, powdery stuff that I’ve only experienced three times in my life? That snow?

It sure don’t snow much in Georgia, so I LOVE the snow.

GEORGIA CONFESSION

I’ve never made a snow angel. Or a proper snowman. I’m a disgrace.

11. Do You Own an Ugly Christmas Sweater, And If So, Describe It And/Or Take a Picture To Show Everyone!

Alas, I do not have an ugly sweater. I should get one.

12. If You Could Have One Wish Granted At Christmas, What Would It Be?

To get all the things on my list (all of them), or for it to snow. I think the latter is probably the most probable.


So, what’d you guys think? Do y’all agree with my answers? What would you have answered? I’m interested in hearing!

If there’s any kind of post you’d like to see in 2021, let me know, and I’ll try my best to write it!

Thanks for reading! See you next week!
