The 30 Song Challenge

Inspired by Mason (Read their post HERE)
I'm not gonna make this longer than it has to be, because it's going to be long. Explicit songs are bolded.

Your favorite song
At the moment I'm really enjoying Bye Bye Beautiful by Nightwish and Jesus of Suburbia by Green Day (which is nine minutes long, what the heck?)
Both songs I wholeheartedly recommend.

Your least favorite song
I am not a fan of Let Her Go by Passenger. It's not a very good song? In my opinion, although Allie loves it.

A song that makes you happy
Walking The Wire by Imagine Dragons. I love it so much. (I still plan to review Evolve)

A song that makes you sad
Brother by Gerard Way. This isn't sadness exactly, but I feel a deep emotion that closely resembles sadness? But like happy sadness, if that makes any sense. It probably doesn't.

A song that reminds you of someone
Mama by My Chemical Romance reminds me of Scarlet.
The Kids Aren't Alright by Fall Out Boy reminds me of my crush, MK. Only because someone told MK that the line "blessed be the boys time can't capture," suited her. So now it's her song.
Ride by Twenty One Pilots reminds me of Allie because she hates it. XD
Bad Blood by Taylor Swift reminds me of my friend Nema.

A song that reminds you of somewhere
Uh...  Whatever It Takes by Imagine Dragons reminds me of my grandmother's bathroom? That's the best answer I can give.

A song that reminds you of a certain event
KILL ALL YOUR FRIENDS by My Chemical Romance.
the bold makes it sound so bad
They aren't actually encouraging murder, don't worry. Please do not kill your friends.
And oh yeah it reminds me of my great-aunt's birthday party because I listened to it for the first time on the way there.

A song that you know all the words to
Laura Palmer by Bastille. And like eight dozen other songs but I'm not listing them all here.


A song that you can dance to
Firstly: You can dance to anything.
you'll dance to anything, you'll dance to anythinggg  
Hurricane by Panic! at the Disco, simply because of the above lyrics.


A song that makes you fall asleep
I have no songs specifically, but I once fell asleep with headphones in and woke up to This Ain't A Scene It's An Arms Race by Fall Out Boy


A song from your favorite band
I have two.
America by Imagine Dragons
Na Na Na by My Chemical Romance


A song from your least favorite band
How does one determine their... Least favorite band? Anything I can think of I like. 


A song that no one would expect you to love
Scarlet was surprised to find that I loved MCR, so most of these, really.
But, Never Getting Back Together by Taylor Swift is a great song. Completely honest.


A song that describes you
I actually have no idea. Most stuff I listen to just... doesn't work for that. If you have any ideas, let me know!


A song that you used to love but now you hate
Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time by Panic! at the Disco. It was my favorite song for like, three days.
But now, can I please delete it from the universe? Why does it exist.


A song you often hear on the radio
Switching genres here entirely but Jesus Take The Wheel by Carrie Underwood. I hear it all. the. time.


A song you wish you heard on the radio
Tiffany Blews by Fall Out Boy. Or anything from Follie A Deux, really.


A song from your favorite album
[Coffee's For Closers] by Fall Out Boy, from Follie A Deux. I love that album so much.

A song you listen to when you're angry
Fallen Angels by Black Veil Brides. BVB has good angry songs, mostly because they are kinda scream-y.



A song you listen to when you're happy
Poet by Bastille is really pretty, but also anything because music is good.



A song you listen to when you're sad
Famous Last Words by My Chemical Romance, if I want to feel better. Because "I am not afraid to keep on living" is so powerful? It has saved me from a good many crying breakdowns.
Otherwise it's Disenchanted, also by MCR.


A song you want to play at your wedding
I don't know. I'd want to have something pretty but also something that reflects the person that I'm marrying. 


A song you want to play at your funeral
Jokingly, The End/Dead by My Chemical Romance. (Have you heard the news that you're dead?) Actually? I have no idea. Will I even die? Maybe not.


A song that makes you laugh
The first time I listened to Teenagers by MCR, I cracked up. I'm not sure what was so funny about it?

Then there's Young Volcanoes by Fall Out Boy, with the line "We will teach you how to make boys next door out of a****les." I think it's supposed to be like "summer romance with the boy next door," but all I can think when I hear it is "Fall Out Boy's guide to getting an a****le to move in next door!"
Not something I'd like to try, thanks.


A song that you can play on an instrument
Old Macdonald Had A Farm, on the piano. That is the extent of my musical talent.


A song you wish you could play
I have no interest in playing an instrument, but I'd like to be able to sing Early Sunsets Over Monroeville by MCR. I'm working on it, but I'm not there yet.


A song in a foreign language that you like
I don't know.

A song from your childhood
409 by the Beach Boys. I loved it when I was little.

Your favorite song this time last year
The Silence by Bastille. For a song called "The Silence" it's pretty loud. It is still among my favorites, but the cloud has grown bigger.


That's all! Go listen to all of these and your life will be improved, 100% guaranteed! Maybe. Do you like any of the songs/artists on this list?
Until later,

Watercolor Roses

I'm listening to some Imagine Dragons stuff that I haven't heard in a while. I'd forgotten how good it is.
Evolve is amazing, by the way. I finally listened to all of it and ahhhhhhhhh. My favorite track is Walking The Wire, by far.
Ya know what, I'll review Evolve in another post. :P This is gonna be a ramble-y post with some art mixed in.

Sam wants to rename our sister chat to "Emo Spicy Girl and her gang." I'm not sure what I think about that being an actual nickname.

Watercolor paints are fun. I don't have much talent with them and I don't use them much, but when I do I really enjoy it. I should paint more often.


This was what made me realize that watercolor paints are really cool.




Water! Just because.


And another rose. This doesn't look like a rose exactly, but I'm not sure what else to call it.

Do you ever want to write the exact way something sounds? To make the type read exactly like the music?
I do. But it's so hard. You can't emphasize words and stretch them the same that you can when you're singing.

I painted three of my toenails purple and then picked it off, but it won't come off my little toe in two places, so now it looks like my toe has eyebrows.

I would love to choreograph stuff and put it on youtube, but I'm not allowed to post videos of myself. It's a shame. You could be watching me Ballet to Fall Out Boy instead of reading this. Or in addition to it, more likely.

I think I need to wrap this up now. I'll have a real post out soon, I promise.
Until later,

P.S. My cousin Charlie has a new blog! It's called Picking Pineapples. [<-- Link] She has only posted once so far, but maybe if you go leave her some nice comments she'll post more. ;)

The Sister Tag! (kind of?)

Daisy at Caught Daydreaming (indirectly) tagged me for the Sister Tag! This post is pretty long and filled with inside jokes, so if you are staring at something in mild horror/confusion, chances are we were laughing our butts off writing it.
If you're especially concerned, I can explain it to you.

I give you *drumroll*
The Sister Tag!!
With my two awesome sisters, Allie and Sam.

Sam: Hey.

Allie: Yo.

Which of you is older?

Sam: No way is Evy the oldest.
(to Allie) Both of us are the middle.

Evy: I'm the oldest, then Allie, and then Sam. Sam isn't the youngest by much though.


What's your favorite thing to do together?

Evy: Make weird LPS videos. Do stupid stuff like dumping a bucket of water over our heads.

Allie: You (Sam and Evy) like to plan weddings and be mean to the bride and take over.

Sam: Make ridiculous LPS videos where some of the jokes get really offensive.
Kill people and throw funerals. We do that on the daily. I don't have any sisters who don't kill people actually.
Also forcing people to get married and throwing their weddings.
Put on stupid makeup using black eyeshadow and lipstick because Evy is emo.
And we sing Ride by Twenty One Pilots to make Allie mad.
Ya know just normal sister things.

What are your sisters' favorite foods?

Evy: Sam likes Thai food.

Allie: Sam likes sushi.

Sam: It's Thai food.

Sam: Ali loves tomatoes. WAIT IS IT BANANA MUFFINS? Or cookies cooked in a muffin tin. Those make your house smell like heaven farted.

Allie: It's the muffins or mango

Evy: I don't know if I have a favorite food. I like so many things equally.

Allie: Help I should know this.

Sam: She loves so many things equally.

Evy: Cheese its are my favorite snack food. I don't know about other food, but I really love vegetables.


What's a character trait your sisters have that you appreciate?

Sam: I like that Evy is an emo spicy girl (WTH does that mean???), and I like that Allie is a bride and that she helps me torture people.

Allie: That Sam comes up with amazingly random quotes as shown in this post.

Evy: What do you like about me?

Allie: I don't like you

Evy: Yes you do.

Allie: I like that you don't take my jokes too harshly, and you know no matter how evil I am I'm still willing to give you a hug.

Sam: I'm not. It's okay Emo Spicy Girl, it's okay. Can I call you that for the rest of the blog?

Evy: It's my new nickname. I like how you two argue over stupid stuff and Allie  says Yo all the time. And Sam is pretty good at nicknames. Like St. Allisene.

Sam: You should call this the Emo Spicy Girl Blog.


What is a character trait your sisters have that you don't appreciate?

Sam: First I'd like to say that I hate you both equally. For Allie I'm gonna say the fact that she has a boyfriend. For Emo Spicy Girl over here I actually can't think of anything. She's mostly flawless. The only thing I don't like about her is her dislike of burps.

Evy: Wow. What a compliment.

Allie: *fake sobs* I dislike that you're always mean to me. For you, Sam, I dislike that you fed me spicy food in that 'What's In My Mouth' challenge. Emo Spicy Girl..... I'm still thinking about that. Maybe that you're so nice that I can't think of anything.

Sam: When she gets mad at you for burping?

Allie: problly.

Evy: I hate when they burp, but Ali burps worse. It's so gross. And when you make me wear stupid costumes and attend the funeral of someone who isn't dead. Tyler is alive I'm telling you.

Allie: Rest in pieces TJ

(None of these were really character traits but whatever)


What's one hobby you have that your sisters don't?

Sam: Evy draws, I do tae kwon do.

Allie: I'm not unique

Evy: You like the reborn baby dolls. I guess that's a hobby?

Sam: Oh I know! Lovingly brushing Striker's hair?

Allie: I don't actually brush his hair

Sam: Then obsessing over Striker.

*Ali sighs dramatically*

Allie: That's the thing I don't like about you. You're always obsessing over me and Striker.

*Allie does something and swears*

Sam: That's her hobby! Swearing!


Who keeps a cleaner room?

Allie: Sam.

Sam: Then Evy, because she doesn't have much stuff.

Allie: Mine is the worst, because Mr. Turtle sleeps in there.

Evy: Yeah

What's the biggest way your sisters annoy you?

Evy: Belching. For both of them.

Allie: By singing Ride (the Twenty One Pilots song)

*Sam starts singing Ride*

Allie: Stop, you know what happens when you do that

Sam: Allie annoys me by swearing. And it annoys me that Evy knows all the words to every Twenty One Pilots song ever and I'm just sitting there humming until the chorus.

Evy: I don't know them that well. I just know the popular ones.

♡♡♡

Allie: Here's the time when you insert a random yo.

Evy: Three questions left YOOOOO!

♡♡♡

Describe each other in three words:

Sam: For Ali, loving, crazy, and mispronunciations. *laughing maniacally* Evy is emo, sarcastic, Gerard

Allie: *nasally* really? she's sarcastic? I would nevera thought

Evy: Gerard is not an adjective and I'm not as obsessed with him as they make me out to be.

Allie: I just tried to call him Bernard.

Evy: Bernard Way. 

Allie: Smam.... Imma say.... fangirl, obsessive, funny

Evy: Sam is random, voice-imitations, insistent. Ali is funny, energetic, and loud.

Allie: *quoting the Lego Movie* Honey? Where are my PAAANNTS??

Sam and Ali: IF BERNARD WAY JOINED ONE DIRECTION.
🎶 HONEY IT LOOKS LIKE BARTHOLEMEW NEEDS TO BARF 🎶


How do the three of you differ personality wise?

Sam: I'm the random fangirl, Evy's the Emo Spicy Girl, and Ali is 'the anime version of Marilyn Monroe happily mourning the death of someone for the cover of an MCR album.'

Evy: That is the strangest inside joke. Sam's answers sum her up pretty well. I'm the most serious of us three. Ali is random but in a different way then Sam.

Allie: I don't understand myself.

Sam: You need to get in touch with your emotions.

Allie: I change my voice with my mood, I guess? And I also can get really hyper.

Sam: Yeah Allie is the hyper one.


Why do you love your sisters?

Evy: Because we get along so well and both of them are amazing people. They are both really sweet and funny. We're sisters and best friends.

Sam: I love Evy so much because she's very relatable and she always understands my stupid jokes. I love Allie because she joins me when I burp and we burp together and it's a really great bonding experience.

Allie: *weird southern accent* I love ya'll 'cause you understand me. Sometimes. Most of the time you don't mind when I go crazy. Because you accept me for being a weirdo and also join me. And it's a really great bonding experience.

Evy: Can you tell I'm the serious one here?

Sam: For some reason I want to be in Texas right now. I just really want to eat food there. Don't ask me why. I just wanna eat food in Texas.

Evy: Texas is great.

♡♡♡

That's the tag! With one bonus thing we came up with while working on this.

"Alright Alright Get The Heck Off My Sleepin' Bag" by Pink Pants at the Disco
Sung by Bernard Way featuring One Direction

Well this has been a lovely conversation filled with only the normallest things to say. Peace out y'all.
♡ Sam 

Alright, alright, get the heck off my sleepin' bag, 'cause this is the end of the post. Yo.
☮ Allie ☮

Until later!

That Kid With Blue Hair

I'm not dead! (I promise) I assume most of you know that, but it feels like forever since I wrote a post. It hasn't been, but being at a dance intensive warps time a little. It's also exhausting. Going from dancing six hours a week to four hours a day is quite a change. I think I've gotten better, but I also hurt my knee so.

I've got seven drawings (plus a bonus doodle) to show you today! Half of them are of "that kid with blue hair," otherwise known as Glitter. All together they showcase her entire shirt collection.


We'll start with this one, because it's my favorite. The posing and the colors and the gas station in the background! She's carrying a motorcycle helmet.

This is where she introduces herself. DIGITAL ART YAY! You can see on the sides where I was playing around with the brushes.


Another digital doodle-type thing of Smoke Sky. 


Glitter again but from the side! The tiny writing says "fruit cocktail" because that's what she's eating and also the title of the drawing. 
I hadn't drawn many profile shots of people before this, but it came out pretty good. I'll get better with practice.


In her signature shirt. The story is that Pixie saw it in a shop one day and said "It's you!" And of course they weren't leaving without it.


 Party Poison. Colored in ink pen and colored pencil. I couldn't seem to decide if I was shading or not, so their shirt looks a little weird when compared to the rest of their body.
Tiny writing says "Jacket? garbage bag? who knows." I'm leaning towards garbage bag because their jacket isn't black anyway.


Kaya in her absolute favorite dress. She loves it so much, she wants to set it on fire.
Tiny writing says "NO."


 This is Raina, Glitter's adoptive daughter. Otherwise known as Spectra Spider. In this picture she's about age thirteen. 
Her shirt used to be Glitter's, but then Raina needed some clothes so Glitter gave this one up.


Bonus doodle of little Raina! Done in pen and pencil because it's cool.
Her hair is messed up on one side because she accidentally set it on fire. Long story.

Which drawing is your favorite? You already know mine. I'm getting inspired to do more stuff like the Raina doodle. Those are pretty quick but they're fun.

Until later,

Share one thing you hope to do to improve the world

I just want to lift the spirits of everyone that comes my way. I think small, I know.


I have two challenge questions, one from Anika, and one from Sophie because I really liked it.

What is one dream you would give anything to make come true?

(From Anika)
I really want to publish a novel. I'd have to finish it first, but then if I got it published with a major publisher and really recognized, I think I would die of happiness. It would be amazing.

What is one experience you have had that shaped your mind and heart into what they are today?

(From Sophie)
Spiritually, I think that being at summer camp has changed me the most. The camp I go to is a Christian camp. Mostly you do normal summer camp things but with morning and night chapel added and with a more God-centered focus. The whole place is so peaceful.

My challenge question for you is:
What place do you feel most at home? (besides your own house of course)
