What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

 

Once again, it’s that big question. We get asked when we’re little and we get asked until we’re adults. Then it’s that decision. So, what do you want to do when you grow up? Be a teacher? Musician? Nurse? Scientist? Whatever it may be, you have time to become anything you want until the day you die. It doesn’t matter if you say “I want to be _____ when I grow up” at age six or thirty-six. There’s always time. No matter what anyone tries to tell you.

As a young person still myself, I sometimes get stressed thinking about the future. What if I can’t obtain my goals? What if I get distracted? What if I change my mind? What college/university program do I apply to? It can all be very stressful.

Sometimes I feel like I have no clue what I’m doing with my life when people (mostly family) asks: “What are you going to do as a career?” And I answer, “Um, I don’t know.” BUT I DO KNOW. Author. That’s all it’s ever been and that’s all it ever will be.

(Of course, I’m not going to become successful right away so I’ll need a career to start off with. And that’s where the “I don’t know”s come in to place.)

But ever since I was a baby I’d stack books up so high, knock them all down and stack them up again. I’d flip through them even though I couldn’t read. I was fascinated by books. And even back then, family would always say: “When she grows up she’s going to be a teacher, librarian, or an author.” Right they were!

Like previously said, I’m still young. I have over fifty years to accomplish this goal. I don’t care if I get published next week or in twenty years. (That’s a lie, sooner than later, please.) As long as I become this one day, I will be able to die in peace. Seriously. This is what I wanted since I was a toddler and I never gave it a second thought. 

Writing novels since a kid, my first one that I self-published was when I was only eleven. Thus far I’ve self-published two. Yes, I am happy and feel somewhat accomplished by this. And I enjoy writing this blog daily. But being professionally published is the dream. 

Being an author as a full-time career would feel like heaven on earth. Waking up in the morning and getting coffee and writing for hours and hours a day just seems so sublime . . .

I’ll stop rambling on now—but the point of this blog is, time is precious. Make the most out of it. Dream big and high and be fully prepared to reach the dreams. If you chase your dreams for five years and give up just because it seems like you’ll never get there, then you will never get there. You need to always chase them no matter how tough it gets. Because you’re worth it. You deserve it. And you will do it.

15 Things To Do For Halloween

jdf

 

So everyone knows that Halloween is a time for the ghouls, ghosts, monsters, and everything in between to come and haunt us all and scare us. But what else is there to do on Halloween other than the obvious? If you’re stuck on what to do for Halloween night, then look no further. Here is a list I created for all of you. The 15 things to do for Halloween are . . . .

1.) Go Trick-or-Treating

It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid, a parent taking a kid, or an adult by yourself. Halloween’s number one tradition is to get dressed up in the best costume possible and go get some free candy! Back in the day you had to dance for your candy or make the person laugh but nowadays, you get it for free. (Phew). In my opinion, as long as you have the right spirit and have a good costume, you have every right to go trick-or-treating! So no matter your age, trick-or-treating is always a fun and affordable option. 

2.) Scare People

Tip: Only scare people you know. On October 30th many years ago, there was such thing as “Devil’s Night”, the night before Halloween where people would go onto the streets, harming people and setting things on fire. Detroit was bad for that. But hey, as long as you’re not burning anything down or killing anyone, who says you can’t have a little fun? You can go out on either nights and cause a little mischief! Recommended for family, friends, and acquaintances only. Have fun with it!

3.) Have a Halloween Movie Night

Wanting a little more private and comfort on Halloween night? No biggy. Grab your favourite snacks, your favourite friend or partner, wear your favourite pajamas and decorate your room (with dim lighting) for the ultimate movie marathon experience. Watch scary movies (and friendly family ones) all night long. 

4.) Go to a Haunted House

There are hundreds of haunted houses per city! Find one that is best suited for you depending on location, price, and time. (and scare level, maybe). Grab some friends and go to a haunted house. Try not to scream too much! Haunted houses definitely fit the Halloween mood.

5.) Go to the Movies

Preferably a horror flick. Go alone or with a friend/partner to the movies on Halloween night for some fun. 

6.) Go to a Restaurant

Halloween grub, anyone? As long as it’s not human limbs and eyeballs! Go on a date or just hang with friends at a fancy restaurant on Halloween night. Everything’s better when you have a happy stomach!

7.) Bake Halloween Cookies

Sugar cookies are truly the point of life. Bake Halloween themed cookies and other sweets such as red candy apples and brownies. Those are some pretty scary tasty treats!

8.) Go to a Halloween Party

Put on your costume and go dance your butt of at a fun Halloween themed party. Themed scary or cute, whatever floats your boat!

9.) Create Your Own Halloween Party

Be known as the ultimate party thrower on Halloween night. Make your house look so scary beyond compare. Invite as many people as you want. Decide on the time, food, drinks, games, give-aways, music, and more!

10.) Go Apple Picking

Fun with your family or with your friends, go apple picking. It sets your mood and welcomes the fall! It smells deliciously good walking through the stacks of hay and trees too pick those sweet tasting apples. Yummy!

11.) Go to the Theatre

There’s typically some good Halloween themed productions going on for Halloween night. Check with your city’s theatres to find out more information!

12.) Hand Out Candy

Yes, trick-or-treating is quite fun. However, where would they be without the hander-outers?! Go to the store and grab some candy, or get some fries and ice cream coupons from Wendy’s or McDonald’s for $2 for a pack of 4-8 coupons. Or, even better, make your own!

13.) Make Your House the Scariest on the Block

It’s Monday. Halloween’s Friday. Better get out there to make your house the most bone-chilling one on the block!

14.) Dress Up with Your Pet

This one is fun, affordable, and adorable. Buy a Halloween costume for your pet (click here) and buy yourself a similar one. Check for events around your city that involves bringing your pet to. This typically includes walk-a-thons and charities to help the humane society. It’s a woofing-good time!

15.) Carve Pumpkins/Jack-O-Lanterns

You cannot skip the pumpkin/jack-o-lantern on Halloween. It’s tradition for a lot of people. Get ready to get your hands dirty! Decorate your pumpkins however you please. Want to have more fun? Make sure you do this outside or make sure your house is covered in newspaper and/or towels and have a pumpkin fight! That stuff is loads of gooey fun!

* FOR BEST RESULTS, DO ALL OF THE ABOVE IN COSTUME!!!


Have a good week everyone! Only five days left until Halloween!

A Letter To My Past Self

aletter

Dear Victoria of 5 Years Ago:

I know that you’re not very confident, but, that’s okay, that will all change. I know you’re not sure who you are in life yet. But, in two months from now, you’ll be on your way to officially start living. You’ll be writing your first book “Five Hearts” which is going to later turn into “Mackenzie High”. It’s going to change your life forever. In the most positive way. You’re also going to be getting your nose pierced. Crazy, right? I mean, you? The girl who’s afraid of needles and pain? It was a spontaneous decision, but a year later and you’re still loving it. It’s a hoop. You moved houses which probably sounds insane. You miss your pool and kitchen and bathroom dearly. But, your room?! That shit is huge. You have two beautiful frosted bedroom doors, hardwood flooring and a classy elegant creamy colour for the walls. You have two closets, two windows, a space for your laptop to write blogs and books. You also have a hamster named Hammie. Yes, it’s okay to freak out. Congratulations! You finally got your own hamster! She’s a cutie pie, and her cage is right beside your bed. You also have two fish and a frog. You’ve learned a lot about yourself and have gained a lot of confidence. It not only shows on your outer appearance, but inner, too. You’re an honour student (I know you’re getting like 50%s right now, but hang on. You’re going to get a 98% in math and prove everyone wrong.) You kinda hate school, but you’re a part time student so it’s no biggie. You found out who your true friends are, and no doubt will you be constantly meeting people in opportunities yet to come. You have the best boyfriend ever named Jacob. He’s four years older than you and sometimes people judge you for that, but people who know you both understand. Your family life is going well, and you have a lot of potential. You’re going places. Just hang in there, because in a few years from now everything will be perfect. Oh, also, stay away from every guy who isn’t Jacob once you get to high school. It won’t be pretty. Lastly, you’ll be starting a YouTube channel called “Games with Victoria”, with hopes to become a successful gamer. (Specifically for Banjo-Kazooie. Y’know, the game you accidentally erased and then cried for hours about)? Well, I have to go work on your future some more for you. You better thank me later!

Love,

Future Victoria
