Writing: blogs and stories

I’m new to this whole blogging thing but I’m lucky enough that there seem to be people out there who are enjoying reading my blog.  However, long before I started writing this blog, I was writing stories, fan fictions to be precise. I was wondering if anyone else out there writes stories as well? I’m still a complete novice at both blog writing and story writing but I really want to improve. I’ve been working on my own novel for a while as well.

If anyone is interested in anime and would be interested in my stories, here’s my username https://www.fanfiction.net/~forfirith87     

If any other writers read this, send me a link to your stuff! I’d love to read! 😀

Look back over the past year

My life has changed so much in the last year. Around this time last year, I was getting ready to finish up with the school I was working with at the time after working with them for 4 years. I was getting ready to celebrate my 4th year in China (Now almost 5!) My boyfriend and I had been together for almost a year.

Now…. I’m in a different city in China, I’m next to the sea! The sea is lovely in the summer but I’m not a fan now as it is way too cold!! I’m working in a completely different place than I originally thought, which to be honest is great. The kindergarten I’m working in now is a million times better than the place I was going to work with. My boyfriend and I have now been together for almost 2 years, even though we live in different cities. I finally got my second tattoo 😀 I organised raising donations and a visit to a local orphanage on Christmas day with my kindergarten kids.

The past year has had many ups and downs, thankfully I’ve had the support of my amazing family, friends and boyfriend. I wouldn’t be where I am without you guys. I’ve taken some photos throughout the past year, unfortunately not as many as I would like, but I’ve still managed to get a few good ones to share with you guys! Some are by me, some by my friends. How has the past year been for you guys?

Book review: A stolen life: A memoir

I just finished a book called A stolen life: A memoir by Jaycee Dugard.

It tells the story of how she was kidnapped and held prisoner for 18 years. What this woman went through is beyond insane. She endured so much but now, that she is no longer captive, she is trying to build a life with her 2 daughters and with the family she was cruelly taken away from.

The book won’t suit everyone’s taste as some of the things she recalls from her past are horrific and vile, but I would definitely recommend this book.

Jaycee Dugard shows just how strong someone can be despite having gone through something which most people can’t even imagine.

It is a fantastic book that I found difficult to put down. I think Jaycee Dugard is an inspiring woman for being to still have a positive outlook on life and for sharing her story with the world.
