  • HOLD ON wait does cake day not equal birthday? Is cake day join day anniversary? Guys this needs to be clarified. I've been here for nearly two months now and I never knew.

    Quillfeather It's okay<3 I think nearly every new member has had to learn that at some point
    For me I was confused when everyone said "congrats on the new star!" And I was like how did I get a star??

    OrabellaAvenue Okay so I didn't know what cake day was until a few weeks ago and I've been on the site for... more than two months...

  • Here we go! #alphabetanswers
    Spoiler! :
    Are you a morning or night person?
    FOR SURE a night owl. (Not me writing this at 2 am...ahahaha)
    Biggest Pet Peeve:
    People who stand RIGHT behind me in the lunch line, especially when they start stepping on my heels.
    When I was really little, I had a MASSIVE stuffed animal collection. I got rid of a lot of them, but some of them I have emotional attachment to.
    Dream job:
    I honestly have no idea what I want to do. I've been thinking about going into teaching, psychology, counseling, architecture, fashion design, zoology, writing. *Sigh* college hunting will be a blast senior year.
    (your go-to) Emoji:
    [insert shrugging emoji]
    Favorite YWS Work:
    I really like the ongoing novel The Antiquity. For poems, I really enjoyed The Drip Finally Stopped And for short stories, Lost Souls is a fav.
    Greatest achievement:
    One time I wrote nearly 50 pages of a novel in, like, three days or something like that. (That novel had no central conflict... but we don't have to talk about it)
    Hardest part of the writing process:
    PLOTING. Oh my goodness, the plethora of universes and characters that live in my head greatly outnumber the stories that accompany them. (I'm soooo much better at world building and character creation, but when it comes to actually creating a central conflict, my mind goes blank)
    If you won the lottery, what would you do?
    Buy cute clothes and redecorate my room. The rest would go toward college.
    How do crows stick together in a flock??.... velcrow.
    Know a fun fact?
    Birds are classified as reptiles.
    Last read:
    The Challace of the Gods by Rick Riordian
    Main writing project:
    (Probably all things I'll never publish, buuut) "The Innerworkings of a Teenage Poet," and "Before Avainia." (that last one is a place-holder title)
    Note to your past self:
    Hey do you remember that one girl in first grade who asked to be friends with you? She asked you on the bus, remember? Yeahhhh, you'll want to avoid her.
    One non-necessity you couldn't live without:
    Person you admire:
    My sister <3
    Question you'd like people to answer below:
    Would you rather be able to sprout wings whenever you please, or grow a mermaid tail whenever you please?
    Reason to write:
    I've got too many thoughts and stories shoved into my brain. I have to get them out somehow.
    I did gymnastics for four years, and now I'm a coach. I also think I might do tennis this year. (dw I'm a boss at Wii Tennis)
    Tag a YWSer that's a good writer:
    Now, I haven't been here too long, but from what I've seen... @Youbeaucupid @humblebard1 @berrie @APoltergeist @herbalhour @AilahEvelynMae
    Ultimate color:
    PINK. love pink. (If you couldn't tell)
    uhmm... no. (unfortunately)
    What are you working on?
    Writing, I guess. Mainly poetry as of right now. Also, I'm trying to read my bible more often. (preferably everyday) It's always been a struggle for me.
    EXciting news:
    I made it into National Honors Society, I guess. (I'm not that thrilled) OHHH I just got my first Victory Royal in Fortnite today. (It only took me 50 levels)
    Your favorite unlikely combination:
    U and I [wink]
    I could take 'em. Just gotta run fast.

    avianwings47 Also if you got a notif saying I tagged you twice... I had to delete the first post because there were too many typos.... And editing spoilers never works right.
    Feb 18, 2024

    Youbeaucupid You tagged meh! (´༎ຶ ͜ʖ ༎ຶ `)♡ (Also, I would so want wings!! 💘)

  • Y'know, I see a lot of people posting "tests" on their wall to mess with codes, but what you don't know is that I've been posting tests religiously since I first learned about code. I just delete the post afterward.

    herbalhour i keep it up bc then my wall is a swamp & u can never find anything

    You're invited to the party! It's going to be so much fun! We need 33 users to break the record! Think you can help?

    I hope everyone enjoyed #UnSoMo now as the official social fortnight or #SocialMonth2024 has started. Here is one more exciting thing for you all. This social month we planned to break a YWS record! All the past YWS records and record holders are mentioned in the The YWS Big Book of Records, but there are collective records as well like the last Great Tortoise Race of 2023 we broke the last Most Users to Complete Team Tortoise in one Month record with 9 members making through the month.

    This social month on YWS we are trying to break the record of Most people in a writing pad at once. It would be a pretty cool record to set. The last one would probably have been for YWS's 16th birthday with around 20 people. We are trying to surpass that goal and yeah that's crazy, chaotic, and of course AMAZING!

    We got this! Do not forget your fruit juices, everyone. Mr.Pineapple invites you to the GREAT PINEAPPLE PARTY hosted by me and @OrabellaAvenue!
    The date and timing is
    (There is a code applied that changes the time to the reader's time zone so it will be different for everyone according to where they live)

  • Hopefully sometime this week I’ll crank out some reviews. I miss writing them already

  • My friend introduced me to Fortnite the other day. *sigh* I hate to admit how much fun it was. (And how bad I am)
    Spoiler! :
    I’m slowly morphing into a twelve year old boy. First it was marvel movies. Then it was legos. Then it was watching marvel movies while I built legos. And now it’s Fortnite. Send help.

    Spoiler! :
    legos are objectively amazing tho >.>

  • I'm going to start replying to comments like a very distinguished nobleman from long ago.
    no more shall I utter the phrase, "haha that's so funny!"
    alas, it shall be heard, "You have assuredly graced my thoughts henceforth with this marvelous declaration. Never before have I heard of such a humorous jest. The laughter that erupts from my lips comes from the depths of my very being, a place of utter amusement and merriment."

    Spearmint how utterly sophisticated! i must say, your manner of speech is quite refined indeed.

  • As much as it pains me to say it.... I will no longer be striving for team tortoise this February. Tears will be shed. Cries of agony will be heard. (I'm kidding) Also 24in24 for me is... being questioned? (I'm not sure how else to put it)
    Spoiler! :
    This month, I'm really trying to disconnect with technology, which has been increasingly difficult with YWS, as much as I love it. I've found I spend a lot of time on here when it's mostly just scrolling and wandering the site. I'd much rather focus my energy on other things, like family, work, the great outdoors, school, etc.
    YWS is of course a wonderful place, and I haven't even been here that long, but I've also noticed that I've started to almost not enjoy reviewing because it just feels like another thing to do, you know? I'm also starting to get a bit burnt out from writing in general.
    Originally, I had set out to write for thirty minutes every day for the month, but I'm not even twelve days in, and I'm starting to realize that I've A) set my expectations too high; B) set a goal that's unhelpful for me; and C) put myself in a position where I feel obligated to continue something that I don't have my heart set on.
    Disclaimer: I'm about to talk about my faith and Christianity here. I also originally felt like God was leading me into these writing challenges, and now I'm feeling that he actually didn't. And while this may feel like a simple little decision, for me it's a rather big decision. This is a huge factor in my time and daily life, so of course I'm going to ask what God wants me to do in this.
    I'm not disappointed or sad about dropping these goals. I simply have realized that I've committed to something that I can't fully commit to. And besides, I can always chose another time to chase after these goals, when I feel like I have the time and energy to keep up with them.
    I think I'm still going to log for 24in24 when I do hit those days, but I also realize that I'm not going to be actively striving for those 24 minutes everyday.
    And, again, while this may not seem like a big deal, it is to me. I set these goals with an intension to keep at them, so dropping them altogether is a big decision. Writing is also a big part of my life, and how much time I spend writing is a big decision. Choosing how to spend my daily time, whether that be three hours or three minutes, is a big decision.
    And ultimately, I know that I can't healthily sustain these goals. But hey, I can always try again another time! :D

    Beware the spoiler... it holds my innermost thoughts about this decision.

    Spoiler! :
    You know what? Yeah! Yeah. Life gets in the way, goals change, and that's alright. And oh my gosh you have no idea how much I relate to this feeling. I got really invested into writing and reviewing and team tortoise, and I got burnt out. Other things in my life besides YWS were more important. And life is something you should definitely prioritize! YWS is supposed to be fun! If it's a burden, don't feel stressed about it! Take a break! I'm sorry to hear that you won't be writing as much, but if it's good for you then totally take a break! Especially if you don't have time or it's making you stressed! Just know that you can come back later (or not) if that's something you really want!
    And hey, if you ever want to talk (about writing or life or whether or not we should draw smiley faces on every door we see), I'm always here. ^^

    Take care, friend! :)

    Spoiler! :
    YWS is an amazing place but if you feel that you need to spend less time on here, than that's what's best for you and there is no need to feel bad about it. I started 24in24 knowing I'd never complete the challenge with a smile. Writing isn't really something that can be forced. So I just log the days that I did write and that helps me feel accomplished. Also, it's wonderful to get outside the computer world and spend time elsewhere-its also great for your health! So don't feel bad about dropping YWS for something better :D And whatever God says, you do!! Wishing you all the best!
