CraftyAggie’s Fresh Start

The summer before college. I’m sure that phrase has been in your mind before, but has it been recent? I answer why? Ur could be because it’s that singer for you and it’s coming to a close. You now have to sign up for classes, go to that college very soon and move on. Maybe…

The Greatest Invention of All Time (and it’s not time)

Without the written word, humanity would not be able to communicate as it does.  Everything currently existing relies on the written word. The knowledge we have of the Ancient world relies on the written words and pictures of these ancient peoples.  We would not be able to understand the pyramids or the half humans’ statues…

The Best Excuse Note Ever

Dear Mrs. Which, There’s a really good explanation for why I don’t have my project, but although I’m pretty sure that you’re not going to believe me, I’m going to tell you anyway.  This isn’t another “dog ate my homework” excuse note, mainly because I don’t have a dog. However, my cat did, or at…

Bull Fighting: Math Version

I like to think of myself as a geek (in refrence to the 1st defintion of geek, not the second. List below. And because I’m not calling myself nerd anymore; Look at my recent post, “Thanks, Sickness, and Words” for the defintion.) Recently, I have strongly disliked my Geometry class. I wanted to try it…

Five Dream Books

I think I’ve mentioned my book, story, novel, (I’m undecided on what to call a longer fiction story that may turn into a series when it’s still in the editing process, oh well) multiple times before. Ironically, the unlabeled document of words that I’m working on went unmentioned here. That is likely because I wrote…

Thanks, Sickness, and Words

I woke up feeling sick, and worn out. Then, my cat made it worse by making me feel crazy. Sir Pounce a Lot decided to meow me awake, then hide so that I couldn’t find the source. Through the sick blur I honestly thought I was dreaming, because when did we get a cat. It…

A new race called…

Today is my English I had a writing assignment to write noun descriptions. My idea description was on thought. I decided to try and personify thought. I imagined thought as a race in my head. All of the different types of thought crowding around trying to get my attention. Then I imagined their happiness when…

You and Me

You wake up extremely early in the morning. You then rush out of the house, forgetting the mushy cereal on the table. You walk up two hills to the corner. You’re not the only late one. You stand in the sub-zero temps, freezing. Once everyone is there, hopefully, you cram into a five foot wide…

Strawflower Love

It is staring me down; the yellow eye of the strawflower is delicately watching me without end. This unending stare shows me the yellow heart inside the middle. The color of this fat heart-shaped spot is like love overflowing to the outermost tips of its petals, where the love suddenly turns burnt orange. These bright…

Mayflower Compact and The Port 5 Compact

The two Compacts are written in chronological order. “In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, e&. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of…

Halloween v. Christmas

Beginning with the Celts, Samhain, now known as Halloween, was the day to placate the spirits until the next harvest began in May. Later, the Church placed “All Saints Day” on November 1st. That holiday was also known as “All Hallows Day” and what was known as Samhain” changed to “All Hallows Evening”, then to…

Green Rider

I am a homeschooled kid and I love to read. That is a good thing because I not only have to read assigned books and write about them (some of them aren’t that bad), but I also have to read “Student Choice Books” (which means just about anything I want to read that isn’t on…
