To do:

So I've been thinking a lot about what I should do for today's post because - as some of you may already know - this is my (2nd) 100th post after all (because this is my new Confessions of a Candyhol!c blog). I just came back from a run jog outside with my dad. I've never tried running before. Like, outside of P.E. I've always wanted to, though, but because I'm usually pretty lazy - not to mention the fact that it's very cold here - I've never tried. It was pretty cold outside (barely 10 degrees), but I liked it; it felt good. Note to self: Do this more often!

Random Fact #1: NeverShoutNever! is my favourite artist. [;

For my 100th post, I've decided to post a short piece of prose that I've written; nothing extraordinary. I just want everyone to know that have grown as a writer and a blogger from the first post that I've ever written. Of course, I have you guys to thank! You guys are all special & I hope you know how much you've all inspired me. And now, without further ado, I present to you: Shiver.

I see Them. I see Them everywhere. They whisper to me in the hallways at school, Their invisible hands tugging at my sleeves on the bus, and at home, Their long silver hands dragging me over to their side of the universe.

"Come with us," They said. "Come with us to where we dwell and we will promise you everything..."

They tell me what to do, scouring through my memories. They tell me I'm stupid, ugly, worthless, and unloved. Sometimes They force me to do things I don't want to do.

But I can't escape. They're a part of me like branches are attached to trees. I can't run away. These thoughts - they find me and they say, "We want you...come with us, come with us..."

Their pale, silver hands, fingers thin and long - They reach out to me with barren hands, circling me until I suffocate.

There's blackness all around me.

Our final assignment for computer's class at school is to do a research paper. SNOOZE right?WRONG! Not when your teacher is Mr. Althoen - basically, like the coolest teacher ever! (Secret: He even lets us listen to our iPod... during school; PLUS we do the coolest projects in his class!) I'm doing a paper on Dr. Seuss, the best children's author ever! (At least in my opinion.)

I'm going to go take a shower so I guess I'll just leave this post with a quote from the ever-so-wonderful Dr. Theodore Seuss Geisel.

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose." - Dr. Seuss

May all your dreams come true,
