    I saw lots of people sending this tag around and, although I have not been tagged in myself, I thought I might have a go:
    Five reasons to frown:
    1)My little sister will not leave me alone.
    2)My boyfriend @TheDocterUnicorn is feeling sick. ):
    3)I have english homework due in on Tuesday and I have not done it yet.
    4)The world is depressing.
    5)Our last chicken died last week.

    Five reasons to smile:
    1)I am still not dead yet. (Even though @JennyImStory thinks she killed me.)
    2)I have an amazing boyfriend. <3
    3)I got one of the main parts in our school show!
    4)My Uncle is back from spain.
    5)I still have not met one Harry Potter fan who disagrees with ScorpAlbus (Please send me a message if you disagree. Go on. Break my heart.)

    So there you have it!
    I will tag in @TheDocterUnicorn so that he can do it when he is better! :D


    JennyImStory Look who's resurrected himself!! XD

    Five Reasons To Frown

    1. My last year of uni starts in a couple of weeks.
    2. I keep coming back here.
    3. I don't write anymore.
    4. I'm going to be 21 soon and I don't feel like an adult yet.
    5. I broke my E string.

    Five Reasons to Smile

    1. I lived to see my last year at uni.
    2. Coming here reminds me that I've grown a lot more than I think which kills most of my self-doubt.
    3. I have a LinkedIn like a /real/ adult
    4. Frank Ocean dropped the album (+ an extra one)
    5. I may be in debt + behind on my rent but I have enough money to buy a new string.

    See you on my next nostalgia trip!

  • #fivereasonstosmilewithatwist tagged by @Snoink (sorry this is late, just got back from Vegas!)

    Five Reasons to Frown
    1. G leaves for Florida again in a week
    2. Our pup isn't here to snuggle with us tonight
    3. Haven't heard from a few friends
    4. I didn't get married over the weekend
    5. Vegas trip is over :(

    Five Reasons to Smile
    1. Vegas was epic! Good times with good friends.
    2. We got to see our friends (whom we introduced) get married!
    3. We broke even with our gambling money and still had fun.
    4. The ride back took about 12 hours with stops, but it was actually really fun and flew by fast.
    5. Home sweet home! Vegas was amazing, and I want to go back soon, but it's nice being able to just relax in the comfort of our home.

  • So, here's me doing fivereasonstosmilewithatwist! Thanks to lovely @Mage! :)

    Five Reasons to Frown!

    1. I've got this Law course this semester and I don't understand Law, it's so haaard. :/
    2. I've left most of the friend-group thingies in uni because I wanted to stay alone and now they hate me. xD
    3. I've been avoiding certain places in order to avoid certain people and it's fueling my laziness. >.<
    4. I'm somewhat scared and stressed. ;-;
    5. I've distanced myself from all those people I love most. :3

    And, finally! #fivereasonstosmile ! + five more!

    1. Detective stories! They save me all the time!
    2. Lindsey Stirling and her violin!
    3. Good fooood! ;)
    4. The fact that now I'm earning myself!
    5. I smile a whole lot more these days!
    6. I've been accepting challenges and it's fun!
    7. Great movies! :D
    8. Kids! <3 I get to meet adorable kids on my way to uni and I love spending time with them! They're totes amused by my name too! :P
    9. I now know what goes on in my head more clearly than ever!
    10. I get this feeling like James Bond, surrounded by enemies and all, haha :P Iwillfightthem! :D

    Hah! That was it! I don't know if anyone will do even if I tag so no tagging from me! :P ... And, um... if I happen to disappear, you know, (Like: poof, gone!) don't think I've left (Not that anybody'll notice!) Because, I don't leave the places I love, I hide sometimes, but I stay. :)

  • Tagged by @Lareine! (Right?! You totally tagged me! ;) ) #fivereasonstosmilewithatwist

    Five Reasons to Frown
    1. My health insurance which supposedly covers 100% maternity and labor and delivery costs has decided that newborn care is not part of this because Anthony is a new inpatient. (WHAT?) They have thus billed us with this in mind.
    2. Going through the insurance appeals process is time-consuming and awful because nobody knows what the flip they are doing.
    3. Election 2016. Need I say more?
    4. My house needs to be painted this summer because it is in desperate need of paint, but the rainy season is coming up way too fast.
    5. My schedule is at the whim of naps and it is so difficult to arrange everybody's naptime (especially with growth spurts going on!) so that I can do things that I need to do... like, go to the store.

    Five Reasons to Smile
    1. Watching Mary eat her first Popsicle was amazing.
    2. Even though I can barely go to the grocery store, I can easily go get a new book from our local library, thanks to their excellent ebook selection.
    3. Anthony is such a sweet, sweet baby who is very easy to take care of.
    4. Homemade ice cream is delicious and very fun to make.
    5. My husband makes me happy.

    Tagging @DrThomas, @Demeter, @Rosendorn, @Crysi, and @Prokaryote. Because why not.

  • I was tagged by the great @Kelpies to participate in #fivereasonstosmilewithatwist

    Five Reasons to Frown
    1. You can't smile all the time - that makes your face hurt. Sometimes it helps to let the corners of your mouth droop and give those face muscles some time to rest and relax.
    2. Ever since Paul McCartney released a live recording of "Maybe I'm Amazed," the studio version hasn't played in ages ... and I like that version so much better.
    3. RWBY Volume 4 isn't coming out until October.
    4. Politics.
    5. People are dying everywhere, all the time, and it's scary.

    Five Reasons to Smile
    1. I'm finally getting back to writing my novel ... as soon as I finish my homework.
    2. I managed to bake a carrot cake without destroying the kitchen.
    3. Ruby Volume 4 is coming out in October!
    4. I'm 90% done with a cosplay costume thing I'm making, and I am super-happy with the way it's coming out!
    5. According to my research, approximately 353,000 babies are born each day; it's beautiful to know that life always finds a way.

  • I was tagged by awesome @Mage for #fivereasonstosmilewithatwist
    Five reasons to frown
    1. First day of school- less time to spend with you awesome people.
    2. I didn't talk to people much during the summer so... This is totally going to be fun. (Sarcasm is a thing...)
    3. I'm having trouble writing much of anything! It's so annoying!
    4. I'm worrying about the amount of worrying I'm doing.
    5. Because you use more muscles when you frown so maybe I'll get a workout with my face.
    #fivereasonstosmile + five more!
    1. My old friends are still awesome.
    2. I have all of my classes with a good friend.
    3. I stopped having reader's block!
    4. Because I feel like smiling that's why!
    5. Because I am not one of the characters in my own books.
    6. Because my face froze. Mother always warned me...
    7. Because I'm in smart people classes, I'm a smart people! (Cough- doesn't mean I have to act like it.)
    8. Because my frown makes me look like a frog.
    9. Because some parts of me say I can't smile and I want to say that that isn't the boss of me.
    10. Because at the end of the day my little introvert world will be waiting for me between the covers of books and over the reaches of the internet.

  • I was tagged by the epic @CupcakesForRealMen to do #fivereasonstosmilewithatwist ! So here I go! :D

    Five Reasons to Frown

    1.) I have reviews to write that I promised to write what feels like ages ago. And I feel guilty about not doing so yet. :(

    2.) I take part in a book club, and I doubt anyone read the book I chose. :( (It's called Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks, by the way. So if you've read it before, or are going to as a result of seeing this, please PM me so we can talk about it!)

    3.) Like Cupcakes said so perfectly: CLIMATE CHANGE! I want to frown even more when I realize there are people out there that don't believe in its existence, despite research backing it. :(

    4.) I'm having trouble writing the fourth chapter of my WIP The Automaton's Heart. I think I'll get it under control soon, but right now it's just plain annoying. :(

    5.) My friend's storybook WARRIORS, The Second Moon is still in need of members. As of right now, there is only three people besides @Sheyren (my friend), and a Warriors storybook is the type of storybook where you want more participants than that. :(

    #fivereasonstosmile + five more!

    1.) Welcome to Night Vale. It's a hilarious free podcast series that you can listen to on iTunes, http://www.welcometonightvale.com, and YouTube (which is where I listen to it). There's also another place, but I can't remember it off the top of my head. I enjoy every minute I spend listening to it! :D

    2.) I found a book I read ages ago while cleaning my room and have decided to reread it because I remember I really liked it. It's called The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict, and is a prequel to the equally great The Mysterious Benedict Society series! :D

    3.) The second storybook I've created, The Revolution, is going great! It's a lot of fun, and the people participating are all very awesome people! :D

    4.) Story Interviews, my newest club, is less than two weeks old and already has an amazing seventeen members. It's a lot of fun, and I like to think that it's been helping others out. I know it's been helping me! :D

    5.) One of the ways it's helped me is by a question someone asked me. They asked about differences in language, culture, and religion as a result of separation between the three races in The Automaton's Heart. I hadn't thought about that before. Now my story has another interesting and realistic angle to it! :D

    6.) I've found other fans of The Bartimaeus Sequence, my favorite book series. It's not too popular of a fandom these days, so I'm always happy when I find out other fans (both of which I consider to be my friends) are on YWS! :D

    7.) I've started rewatching D. Gray-Man. Which means I'm singing the opening, Innocent Sorrow, a lot and realizing how much I hate Kanda and love Allen. I'm serious when I say that Allen's going to be my avatar soon. He's such an interesting and lovable protagonist! :D

    8.) The next book in the Lockwood and Co. series is coming out in September. I'm really excited for it. The author, Jonathon Stroud, is my favorite author and also the author of The Bartimaeus Sequence. I can't wait to see what he has in store for all of us readers after the ending of book three! :D

    9.) The next Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard book is coming out in October! I'm really excited for The Hammer of Thor because I found Magnus to be a very entertaining protagonist in the first book. Like with Stroud's new book, I can't wait to find out what Rick Rioridan has in store! :D

    10.) I like smiling! :D

Edna began to feel like one who awakens gradually out of a dream, a delicious, grotesque, impossible dream, to feel again the realities pressing into her soul.
