So I have approximately 368 days until I’m an adult

Well

So, my birthday’s rounding the corner (I know, I know, seventeen, the last year of being a legal child), and I’ve been trying to think of a way to make a big deal of it, so I decided, to do a Birthday Tag.

Fascinating stuff, right?

(Also, I may or may not be crunched to write a decent post, but also half asleep, so let’s see what I can do).

I would also like to note, that I couldn’t find any birthday tags, except this one, from Journey Speaks, so kudos to you, my friend.

*AHEM*

Let’s begin.

When’s your birthday?

September 14th, 2002-So technically, Saturday.

How old are you turning?

Somewhere between Ancient, and I’m Just a Baby Child, so…Seventeen.

What’s the most favorite present that you’ve received?

My brother actually gave me these little beaded bracelet’s that had owls and turtles; they came in multiple colors. I don’t have them still because I wore the living daylights out of them. My other favorite gift would be an American Girl Doll I got when I was five.

Are you/did you have a party this year? If so what are you doing/what did you do?

I’m actually going bowling with my family and some close friends. My mom sort of threw it together a few weeks ago, after I had a hard time finding what I wanted to do (I work on my actual birthday-when they have all the major events going on, so that made things tricky). She always manages to make birthdays special.

How do you usually celebrate your birthday?

In my family, we have Birthweeks. Because we don’t really go all out on any other holidays, it’s a big deal. It also helps to make sure my mom and brother (since they share a birthday)miss out. Anyway, basically, we give little gifts throughout the week, and they get charge over the TV what/where we eat, and that sort of thing. We also hang up the birthday banner (well, usually, not this year, it kinda bit the dust), and smaller decorations.

What was the most memorable birthday you’ve ever had?

Honestly, they’re all pretty memorable. The most memorable would have to be my eleventh. I had a great party, but some drama went down in the background and kind of bled into the next few days and made me a bit…emotional. Long story short, it was both good and bad.

If you had an unlimited amount of money what would you do for your birthday?

That’s a loaded question. Honestly, I’m a bit of a…material girl, so you know, probably definitely a VERY LARGE shopping spree, but also, I’d probably travel with the ones I loved to a different Country.

Perhaps, Scottland, or Paris.

What’s your birthday wish list?

Pfffttt, probably Money.

Honestly, though, now that I have a job, I prefer to buy things for myself. And I’d probably just end up putting it toward a computer, or school…

But, other items might be

Books

Sims 4 Packs

Notebooks

I really, don’t know.

If you only had one birthday left, what would you do for your birthday?

1)Have Anxiety that it was my last birthday

2) Do the above, but also invest a butt-ton of money so that my family and a few choice organizations were financially secure.

3) Throw a Huge Party and Travel to a TON of places

 Show a picture of your birthday, preferably an embarrassing one.

I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty sure Google has deleted a bunch of photos because we are missing a TON. So really, the only two I could find was from my eleventh birthday, and my 14th birthday (3-ish years ago). It could also be that I deleted them. I also took a picture last year, but it’s just…not interesting. So I’m going to have to hard pass this question.

Do you have any birthday traditions? 

Act as if I’m treating myself more so than I do on a normal base.

But also, just as I said before, BirthWeek.

That’s pretty much it.

What’s your favorite part about your birthday?

Being the center of attention. And telling old stories with my family and reminiscing about specifically hilarious events.

 What’s one thing that changed a lot since your last birthday?

I’m less depressed, so things are different in every way. I’m able to enjoy things more without feeling utterly terrible, and over-all, I’m excited about it, more than I am dreading the idea of getting older and “adulting more”.

Have you ever been thrown a surprise party or have you ever thrown one for someone? 

No to both, but trust me, I will. I freakin’ love birthdays-specifically others. I go bankrupt (not really, but I do excercise more self-control than usual when birthdays are around) around birthdays. I love making people feel special and seeing them have a good time…

Right, I’m genuinely curious, Birthday or not, how would you answer these questions? When’s your birthday, and what’s your absolute favorite thing about birthdays?

And, before I go,

Today’s post is sponsored by Skillshare (I know, I know, but hear me out). Skillshare is an online learning platform that offers you the opportunity to learn about things in a setting that’s most comfortable for you.

Now, Without further ado, sound of in the comments down below, and let me know the above stuff, but also, what’s the most hilarious birthday story that you have?

It’s been Three Years

Warning in advance: I was feeling particularly tired as apparently I don’t know how to sleep properly at nights…so…I may or may not have been sleep deprived when writing this. I digress, if you stick around some things may make since. I was going to re-write this, but as chance would have it, I was just not feeling great that night. Also the anniversary was yesterday, so I’m a day late posting. Again, and you’ll read it a thousand times, thank you all SO much for three years. This is huge, as I have a tendency to be flighty, and I actually had alot of people doubting me when I first started. So thank you all so much for your support, and here’s to another three hundred!

Another note: 10/10 didn’t edit because I have to write Writers Square, which will STILL be coming out today, this is just a thank you post.

WHO’S DOWN FOR A BIRTHDAY PARTY?!

No, but seriously though, I can’t believe that Hazi Words has been around for THREE YEARS. It feels like just yesterday baby me was coming up with dorky names like, Book Shots (I have no creativity in naming things. My parents are worried about what my brothers going to name his kids, but let’s be real here, I named my Guinea Pig Sherlock even though I’m not a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, so, I have no idea where I was going with that).

Three years of blood, sweat and tears. THREE YEARS.

And honey, let’s be honest, we’ve done a lot.

From the INSANE change in visitors (THANK YOU).

To the Hundred Followers (One hundred and nineteen, now), we’re advancing. WE’RE GOING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD.

You know, the entertainment industry.

We’re already like, 100/1000000000000000 of the way there, so, I mean, I just pounded the zero key multiple times, I don’t do math.

Anywhozzles.

I feel like, we should do something special.

Something that’s NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE.

SOMETHING THAT SHOULDN’T BE A THING, BUT IS BECAUSE I MADE IT.

Actually, a few things.

So as you know (Or don’t know, and you’re knew here, if so, welcome, I don’t have a great attention span and sometimes get a little too excited when I’m writing because I don’t know how to communicate very well verbally), I have been saying this for a while, but I’ve been wanting HaziWords to go self-hosted. WELL.

I have a job now, and while I have been putting it off, I’m going to go ahead and make the jump.

After I visit the bank. I need financial advice on things.

Now, on the even MORE crazy side of things, I have devised a plan.

I’ve been saying I want to publish a book for a number of years now, and I’ve honestly been sitting on a short story, which I have NO idea what to do with, as well as a Childrens story, that I have to edit. I’ve also been wanting to do Nano Wrimo for, every single year since I’ve started this blog. One day, while I was watching YouTube (like one does), I came across a series of 24 hour challenges.

And then I decided. I’m going to write a novel in forty-eight hours.

That’s a rough estimate of six-thousand words per hour. Three Chapters per hour. Which is, ridiculous, really.

In case you haven’t noticed by the off-topic rambling, I don’t have the greatest attention span, and it’s especially bad right now, since I started of the day sort-of quiet and not into anything, and then proceeded to watch two hours of a YouTuber who has the same attention span that I have, SO, I get distracted.

Now of, course, I’ll go more into detail next week when the challenge commences, and follow the journey, both on YouTube, and on here (a future BLOGGER).

So you may be wondering, why are you acting like this is a big deal?

Well, my dear friend, the entire point of this post was to make it known that it’s actually really miraculous that I kept up with this the amount I did, with everything I’ve been through, and if you want the honest truth, I couldn’t be any more proud. Especially considering where I started three years ago, my mental state, and those who seemed a little skeptical toward this, and my stick-tuitness.

In conclusion, thank you guys so much for three years, and here’s three-hundred more.

Let’s make a positive difference, with one ginchy word at a time.

Stay Ginchy,

16 things to do for 24 Months

Guess who’s finally sixteen?

Honestly, I was expecting something bizaarly magical to happen, and really the only thing I realized is that I need at least 2,000 dollars for a car.

On the plus side, I’ve been thinking about all the the things I’ve been through growing up, and it’s alot. Not to say I’m a wise sage, but I’ve been through some crap, and I still am.

I also look back at the past sixteen years (as far back to when I was a weird five year old), and realize that, yeah, if I could, I would change something’s, but I can’t, so I’m going to learn from them, and this led me to my special blog post I have:

Sixteen things to do over the next sixteen years.

And then I decided that that was ambitious, and let’s make it my next milestone:

24 Months from now (two years), here’s what I plan to have achieved/accomplished by then.

1. HaziWords becomes life changing.

Not just for myself, but those who read it. When people read HaziWords, I want them to smile, I want them to read something that effects their life for the greater good.

2. Have published/started publishing 2-3 books.

I say two to three because Friday of this coming week marks the day I send out what I hope to be the first book I publish, and I officially begin another book. I’ve heard it’s long, so I figure two books, two years, let’s see what we can do.

3. Start up my Youtube Channel

Don’t do that-the groaning, don’t do that. I have plans-big ones. My brother and I are working on a skit channel (it’s legit really cool), and I want to become established enough that I can turn my writing into shows/movies. I want to use the platforms that I have available to become a story teller, and control where my writing goes, and how it changes the world.

4. Make Money off of HaziWords

I genuinely want to be able to draw in some money from HaziWords, mainly so I can continue to make posts-but give them better quality. This blog is my apology, and even though money isn’t my passion, building a name for this is, and every Business person says the same thing :When you do things, don’t do it for the money, do it for the experience.

5. Develope a more healthy lifestyle.

And by this, I mean physically, because where I volunteer is really, really, a cess pool of stress (And I LOVE it).

I want to become a more healthy eater, lose weight/develope muscle.

I’m pretty sure I can do it, if chocolate doesn’t win me over.

6. Reach five hundred followers on this blog.

Too much? Or is it?

7. Become more Confident Around People.

Remember that volunteer job? I love it. I work with people who are trying to fix their life, and honestly, I can remember something they told me two months back. I can tell you what there kid’s allergic too, their preferred shampoo, when they have a doctor’s appt., I can carry a thirty minute conversation, and it’s no big deal.

Once outside of there, my mind blanks on socialization. I know that it can’t hold me back, so over the next two years, I’m working to overcome that.

8. Stop fretting.

You know regrets and regerts and guilt?

It’s something I really struggle with, and before anybody says that I’m too young, than your wrong.

I have had one too many Pudding Cups back in my day.

9. Write a moving story for Wattpad.

I want a story that moves people, that changes lives, because that’s what I’m about. Why wait for the world to move so I can change it, when I can move the world and change it?

10. Develope a stronger relationship with God.
Honestly, this will always be on my lists.

I’d like to say I’m close with God, and that I’m an ideal Christian, but I am far from it.

11. Overcome my fear of heights.

I don’t know how I’m going to do this, but I’m determined. Maybe I’ll go on a ferris wheel or something. All I know is you know you have a problem when you can’t stand near the railing at a mall.

12. Dye my hair.

Now I know this will happen EXACTLY two years from now, on my birthday, with my dad. It’s gonna be great, we’re both going to go and dye our hair.

13. Better my drawing.

I’ve been saying this for a while, but I really need to perfect my drawing and coding abilities. I want to be able to animate things for my stories, and being able to do that would be great help.

14. Crotchet a Wash Rag

I can actually crotchet, I just get distracted so easily, it might be a problem, but I’m going to work on it.

15. Sew a Skirt

I really, really, want to try sewing/designing my own outfites. I’ve only had one sewing class, but it’s really something I want to work on.

16. Find myself

Between sixth grade and eighth grade, I picked up a “chip on your shoulder” attitude, a type of attitude that was very angry, arrogant, sarcastic (and even though it might now seem like it, in a very hurtful savage way-go ahead, cringe, I said I was savage), and in general, the “tough chic” situation.

When I was fourteen I tried hard to become a very cheerful, care free me.

But it didn’t last long, and I guess what I’m trying to say is, for as long as I can remember, I’ve been impersonating characters in books and movies, because I loved there stories. I don’t think I have ever taken the time to develope myself.

Or maybe these characters I try to play are all apart of me.

Let’s find out.

16. Learn how to link things on this blog.

Like websites. I really am frustratingly clueless on.

And that wraps it up! Thank’s for reading, and make sure you check out Sunday’s Interview!

Remember to live your life like the ginchy story that it is!
