  • still one of my favorite YWS memories... xD also how do you even begin to explain this sort of mayhem to non-YWS people.

    yes... I'm part of a writing website... yeah, we write... and also one time vegetables took over the site... :] kind of hard to explain.

    Big Brother wrote:After a wonderful trial run of the "Young Vegetable Society" and much careful discernment among our mod staff - we have decided to stick with "Young Writers Society" and continue with the writing rather than vegetable focus.

    ... btw Happy April Fools Everyone!

    Thank you YWS staff for keeping us on our toes! Have a good National Poetry Writing Month + Camp NaNo everyone! Those who had their avatars flip flopped by Big Brother, will have them set back today. If you changed your avatar yourself, you can keep it or set it back!

Let's keep up the energy and find her two siblings to get this goose family reunited! Still plenty of time to get involved with this Summer Green Room Review Challenge!

  • I really like this poem I wrote earlier, so made another recording version on Canva. Check it out if you like - kind of a neat way to do a poem reading I think.

    the sand drifts in from, beyond the place
    the wind carries the storms from, beyond the place
    we go to when we dream, in the land our ancestors trekked,
    in the time when there was no lack only abundance,
    only the infinite golden light across horizon that never ends.
    And here we were guests to the table of the Great One.
    Some of them believe the stories are true because
    it's the only thing that will keep them walking
    through this morning heat, the only thing that will
    let their eyes rest easy when the day ends; the Promise
    that One Day, we too will reach that place again.

  • Last Wedding Update... Pictures?
    Might delete later for privacy-sake; but so wanted to share with you all some pictures of how everything turned out for the wedding!

    Spoiler! :

    ^ Purposely a collage of teeny tiny pics... but hopefully gives you a little idea of what things looked like! On the top right... I did 14 miniature vases of flowers I arranged in our wedding colors for the dessert reception tables (very cute!) everything had this burgundy/blue/pink/purple water-color flowers motif for all our signage which was cool. Parents wore blue, burgundy, and purple. Middle pic - a shot from our first dance at the dinner reception. Middle right - cute moment during ceremony where we were praying. Bottom pic - our wedding party (my sister @tgirly is to the right of me...) <3

    ^ I loved my dress so soooo much; it is a slightly blush-pink color, but comes across as white, and I think complimented the pinks of the bridesmaid dresses really well. It has this lace-vine pattern all over it which I matched to a vine pattern in my veil and earrings too. Also wore bright blue shoes!


    Quillfeather Oh my gosh that dress is beautiful the whole wedding looks beautiful also you look absolutely gorgeous!! You two sure look like a happy couple

    EllieMae Oh my goodness, these are so gorgeous! I am obsessed with the design of your dress. I love modest dresses like that so much! Praying during the ceremony like that is the most beautiful thing ever. Love the flower and suit colors too <3333 thanks for sharing!!

  • Do you ever think about how we all thought Shrek was peak comedy and cinema in 2001? So much so that we were like, yes let's have 5 movies about that. xD

    BluesClues For a second I was like "wait, FIVE?" but I assume you're counting Puss in Boots

    (Also what do you mean, IN 2001, they are still peak comedy and cinema lmao, four films and all bangers. I still remember someone described the fourth one to me as "It's a Wonderful Life" meets "Braveheart" and then I saw it and I was like ...astonishingly, that was correct)
