Ok, I'm officially a coward...

After that whole long letter, I didn't actually tell the guy i wrote it to that i like him...

Let the words of sympathy/mockery begin!

A Wish (A letter to a boy)

"How do you know when you're in love?"
"All the songs make sense."
--Castle and Beckett in Castle (which is an amazing tv show)

I used to think that maybe, if we were meant to be together, some deep force of fate would pull us together. But how can fate bring us together if we don't admit to one another how we feel?


I had a dream we were married. We had two kids, and we were so happy together.
But that can't be a reality if you never know.

I guess I'm not a secret admirer anymore (Except that you don't read this blog), but that's ok.
When I'm around you, I feel like there's a herd of dragons in my stomach, and that I might sprout wings and fly at any second.

Everything I know is flipped upside down, because it's so easy to be with you.

I love you. Even when I tried to tell myself that you aren't ready to love me back, I do. I can't help it. You're just so amazing.

Forever and always,

Lady Elisabeth

To Survive

They laugh at your fears
They whisper your name
You scare them
What do they know?
You are only human
But you tell them:
Life isn't perfect
Bad things happen
Scars are invisible
There's more than their bubble
You show them the light
They'd rather the dark
They don't want to know
So they crawl away
They fear you and your truth
They laugh when you cry
They can't see your scars
But they know that they're there
Because you don't let them forget

To See You Go

My mind was open
My eyes were
The stars were out
But I couldn't see
Through the cracks
In my bedroom wall
So I searched the land
The sea
The sky
To find a clue
A pointer to where you are
Are you there?
I know you can see this
Find me
The moon is high above me
But alas
So far below your feet
I'll wait for you
At the station
The place we said
So long
I closed my eyes
So I wouldn't

Biology "Notes"

I haven't posted in a while, mainly because of school.
I've started taking biology this year, and it's really cool!
I really am not great at sitting still though, so i doodled on a piece of paper while i learned the difference between chromosomes, and chromatids...
It was a work of art.

...And the whole dang family starts laughing

We just got back from fancy dinner out, and I'm walking down the stairs to the basement, while talking to me sister and suddenly I scream a high pitched girly squeal of terror. I look again at what freaked me out and start laughing uproariously.
"I just scared myself!"
My sister walks over to see how. She looks down the stairs and shrieks. Then she starts laughing too.
Our dad comes to see what's happening, and just says, "Oh my god."
My mom calls out from across the hallway, "What's going on?"
"Come see for yourself!" My dad replies.
My mom looks down the stairs, and joins us in laughing.

What was so funny, you ask?

Well, here you go:

A Memory

I am sitting on my parent's bed. My mom is nursing my little sister, who is not quite one. My mom is watching TV. 
I have no idea what is happening.

That is the only memory I have of September 11, 2001.
I was only four, and my parents shielded me from the whole thing. Honestly, I didn't ever hear my Mom's side of that memory until a few months ago.

She picks up the phone and calls her dad.
"Turn on the TV."
"What channel?"
"Just turn it on."

My aunt told me that at first, they thought it was just an accident. And then the second plane hit.

Thank you.
If you were there, thank you.
Thank you for rushing in, for risking your life on the slight chance that you could save someone else's.

Have you ever used Cleverbot?? I love it!
Within this same conversation, I spent twenty minutes convincing it to marry me (it finally accepted), and then five more minutes telling it that i would not name our child Buddha. 
We also conversed in french for a while...
(btw, Cleverbot's French grammar is HORRIBLE)

Useful Links for Writers

I like to write.
I would go so far as to say i'm a writer.

I think that the names of characters are almost as important as plot, so i'm giving you the links to my best character naming resources. :)

Even though this site is a pregnancy support site, it has the best names and meanings selection that i have found so far.

When writing things in different time periods, i like to go to social security administration's popular baby names site, where they have the stats for the popularity of names in different years.

And finally, when doing sci-fi or fantasy, you want weird names so i use this name generator program. (Occasionally, the names are unpronounceable, but it's easy to use)

Lady Elisabeth

update: the name generator no longer exists on that web address and is now here

Do me a favor...

I must say, I have never done this before, so if my posts are crap, sorry.

Recently, I lost one of my best friends in the world.

We had an argument, and she decided that our three years as nearly sisters were over.
I cried for three weeks waiting to hear from her.

Do me a favor:

If you don't want to be friends with someone anymore, tell them.
Just go email them, facebook them, call them, text them, or best of all, talk to them face to face.
Seriously, all I'm asking is that you have enough courtesy and courage to be honest, instead of letting them believe that  it can still be fixed.
