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.

I Haven’t Done this In While…

Well,

Hello There.

It’s me.

You’re favorite ginchy person.

I haven’t written in a while, I mean, besides yesterday, but I’ve come up with a series of ideas, and I’m trying to get my life on track. Something I haven’t done this in a while.

A To-Do list, of things I want to do before I become a legal adult.

That’s right, in roughly one month, I will be entering my final year of adolenscence. I AM HAVING FEELINGS.

I think, in particular for me, I had a rough childhood, and I was honestly scared I was going to make it without messing up. (I had supportive family members, but the usual child hormones and weird family drama really played on me).

That being said; a list of things I want to do before I become a legal adult.

 

  1.  I want to send a book into an Agent-and see if I can’t start down the road to a published book. I’ve been saying it for years, but now I’m really feeling the crunch time.

2. I want to hike two mountains. Why two? Because we have two major mountains where I live, and I’ll be darned if I’m going to pass them buy before I go off to college.

3) Reach 500 followers. I want to reach five hundred followers-but when I say that, five hundred followers all active. I want to reach people, and so help me, I will.

4) Get sponsored here on WordPress. So help me, I will become a business blogger for even a short period of time.

5) Do a day trip with my mom. She’s my best friend, and before I go to college, I want to do something we’ve never done before.

6) Learn how to draw. Remotely well, I’m not pushing it.

7) Get into voice acting. Seriously, I’m just here to try things and have a good time.

8) Have a few nights out with my dad. I want to spend more time with him. Again, College starts in a year, and I’m suddenly feeling very…emotional? I don’t know, I’m not moving away, but I want to do more then what I usually do.

9) Spend more time with my brother-I want to try and do things with him. Things we’ve both wanted to do before-and some things he’s never considered.

10) Get into shape. Listen, I know I’ve been saying this for a while, but my life’s also been spinning out of control slowly, and I cope with stress by eating. Now that I’m ready to take on the world; I’ve decided that it’s about time I make sure I’ve got a few extra years on my lifespan.

11) Finally decorate my room. I’m here to make it something I want-turn it into a creative space. A place where I can sit down and do things I never thought of before.

12) Start a YouTube channel. And do fairly well too, in regards to making quality content that nobody asked for.

13) Get into my dream college. No spoilers.

14) Do one major thing out of my comfort zone. I still don’t know what yet.

15) Meet someone new.  And become friends.

This list is very…early 2000’s. In those teen movies, where there like, guys-let’s make a list.

For me, and I’ve probably said this a gajillion times, I really don’t want to wait to do things. I want to make a difference in the world-I want to do something crazy.  So, if you’re entering your senior year/final year of being a legal child, what are some of things you want to do? If you’ve pasted your final year of being a legal child-what did you do in your final year? Let me know!

Hello, and Welcome

Well hello there,

You ginchy person, you.

(Can I trade mark ‘ginchy’, is that possible)?

I digress,

I know what you’re thinking (okay, to be fair, I really don’t)

HAZI.

YOU SAID YOU’D BE LIFE-STYLE ORIENTED.

Well.

I have a boring life. I eat, I do homework, I play video games and watch Youtube, and Harry Potter (this is a recent development).

However, it is something I want desperately to try, and I’ve also been slacking on this blog, so I’ve decided that the only way to motivate myself (And prepare for the next Story Starters Boot Camp, which is, delayed until tomorrow, as I’ve had quiet the week), is to reintroduce myself.

So hello, I’m Hazi.

You’re stereotypical un-average teenager who ends up in strange situations-but not strange enough to satisfy my need for drama, which is why, I do a ridiculous amount of writing, reading, and day-dreaming.

I’m currently a High School senior/part-time college student who also works at an equally unique place part time, and is slowly accumulating enough stories to write a book about it.

Speaking of writing books, I have a tendency to sit on several stories waiting to be published, while I procrastinate with what was previously mentioned (video games, YouTube, Harry Potter).

I’ve been working on strengthening my relationship with God, and learning how to curb a few things, like my temper, and the whole being-a-drama-queen-thing.

Alas, this blog is my journey, my life, my tips, and I bestow them all upon you.

Join my on one hex of a story.

As always, stay ginchy, live your life like the fantabulous story that it was made to be!

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!
