Daily Prompt: Being Sorry!

Daily Prompt: Write a post about anything you’d like — in the style of your favorite blogger. (Be sure to link to them!)

I’m sorry – I don’t have a favourite! I know a lot of people out there follow someone devotedly week by week, post by post, but it’s just not for me. I like to flit in and out of various blogs, out of their stories and tips and lifestyles and rants. They all offer something that the others do not – every blogger has something different to show me and a unique style of offering it. That’s why I’m ignoring this prompt and just doing my own thing, like all of you out there!


Daily Prompt: Being Scared!

Daily Prompt: You’re having a nightmare, and have to choose between three doors. Pick one, and tell us about what you find on the other side.

So I’m guessing something bad is going to be behind that door? For me at the moment, I would be most terrified at the prospect of failing…at everything. Today I visited the university I want to study at in September and now I’m worrying about not getting the grades, even though I try so hard and that university is kind of what keeps me motivated. I’m scared that I will be forever jobless because for the past two years, despite good grades and decent skills, nowhere seems to want me. I’m scared that I will crash my car when I drive myself and my sister to a café on Saturday, without the guidance and directions of my parents in the car with me.

But hey, it always helps to be positive, doesn’t it?!


Daily Prompt: Being Dead!

Daily Prompt: Write your obituary. 


I am not dead, I don’t yet have a husband or children, I have not lived my life and so I refuse to write such a morbid prompt. Sorry to disappoint anyone, but I don’t want to write an obituary for the first eighteen years of my life – because I haven’t even got started with the living part yet!


Daily Prompt: Being Indecisive!

Daily Prompt: A writer once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If this is true, which five people would you like to spend your time with?

I hate these questions. If I pick people I don’t directly know I feel like I’m betraying my family and friends, yet if I pick my family and friends I’m afraid I’ll come across as lazy and unoriginal. Ah well. I can’t just narrow it down to five. There are plenty of people who I would love to spend some time with (Benedict Cumberbatch to mention just one of them) but I don’t even know if they would match up to my expectations in real life. What if the cutesy, inspiring, admirable famous person image turned out to all be an act? And I’d be wasting my time with someone else completely? I could mention many members of my family and friends, all of whom inspire me/are kind people/are funny/ tell amazing stories, but, as I just demonstrated, they each have different qualities and I can’t decide between all of them! Could you?


Daily Prompt: Being Interrogated!

Daily Prompt: What question do you hate to be asked? Why?

“What’s the matter?”

Although I completely understand and appreciate that when people ask me this question, they usually are concerned (unless they just want to be nosey), I really hate to be asked it. First of all, I just have one of those faces – the ‘I’m happy on the inside’ face which I’m sure some of you also have. I can’t help looking sad a lot of the time and I don’t want to have to constantly smile to prove my internal happiness! Secondly, if I wanted to tell the person what my problem was, I would have done so in my own time and most of the time when something is actually wrong, I would rather keep it to myself! I’m a suffer-in-silence type of girl.

I’ve had this problem throughout most of my life; teachers have kept me behind to ask if anything was the matter; a friend was once convinced that I had an unhappy home life and invited me round to her house so that she and her mum could question me about it; sometimes even my family accuse me of being in a bad mood for no reason! Perhaps I should just permanently plaster a great big smile on my face? People mean well but sometimes it’s frustrating!
