Hi there. By reading this, you must know that I too am aspiring to be a writer. Writing is my passion, and is the only thing I've ever really had a talent for. That's why I was so lucky to discover this website! I'm a big dreamer, and not afraid to admit it! I am from Scotland, which is a rather small country - but one day, I want my name to be splashed across book covers around the world. I know, I'm very ambitious. But I'm more afraid of not daring to dream than to have my dreams broken - so I'll take the risk. I live in a world of imagination, but life is better that way. And if you spend only a few seconds or so, reading something of mine, I would be forever thankful (I would love feedback and advice). Well, i think that's about everything. Oh, and by the way - my name is Mikhaila :)

    mumbled "Religion... or division?"

    5 years agoReply
    Religion has been a thing of much debate, continously from past ages to recent years. Personally, I never gave it much thought. I was ok with not knowing how the world began. But some people can't help themselves... was it the big bang or was it a higher power or was it God? So, they chose a faith to believe in, something they find realistic and get inspiration from. Now, it's not that I don't find religion realistic, or inspiring, for that matter. It's just... there are so many conflicts in the world, and the key spark which fired up these conflicts were divisions in religions. I don't understand why. So what if that guy believes in one thing,and that girl believes in another. My mother likes brown sauce and I despise it, but does that mean a fall out? No. Why can't we just except these differences and move on? For example, countries in Africa - Sudan and South Sudan are battling throuh major conflicts - 1.5 million people have died - and a major cause was religous differences - muslims versus christians. Why should it be that way? It is impossible to make the millions of people in the world have the same opinion on everything, let alone religion. So I don't have a religion. Does that make me a bad person? Some people may believe so. I visited my friend's church recently, and I heard the priest discuss our fate - heaven and hell. He believes that if you aren't religous, so haven't asked for forgivness to your sins, then you're going to hell. Well, that's not moral, is it? We should have the freedom of choice, and not be pressured by opinions. We shoudn't fight about where we came from. Or where we are going. We should just be grateful that we are here.

    mumbled "Modern Technology: strengh or threat?"

    5 years agoReply
    Most teenagers nowadays are so glued to their computers that spending only "half an hour" on facebook spirals out of control until it reaches the end of the evening and you wonder why your fingertips haven't left the keyboard yet.
    Moern technoogy is taking over the world quicker than a match set a light. I am only sixteen but I still remember the days of my grandparent's typwriters. Now, I'm not complaining. Don't get me wrong. But sometimes, it's nice to feel some tradition, rather than thinking we live in a culture of computerised maniachs.
    For example, I love going to my local library. The cosy atmosphere always got to me when I walked through the door, accompanied by warmth, and rows and rows of ancient novels, and plenty of corners to cocoon yourself into your own world of imagination and a vending machine to satisfy your hot-chocolate needs. But then it all changed when the place got re-furbished and modernised. I now walk in to blinding light, blank white walls, a huge open space with less books, but modern computer games taking up a large proportion of the space - who comes to the library for a playstation/wii? Some people like it.
    I think sometimes... sometimes we can go too far with technology. Sometimes, it can be a buden of computerising our brains to a much too far extent.
    So now you decide: modern technology: strenght or threat?
    An equal bakance would be fine, but the scales are being tipped...

    mumbled "Another face in the crowd..."

    5 years agoReply
    So, the new school year is beginning and as I walk through the school doors, the thought that dances in my mind is "who will I be this year?" There's the school's sportsman, carrying the school's football team to victory. There's the over-achiever, winning every possible academic award in assembly. There's the school gossip, never missing a dull moment of over-exaggerated drama. There's the school theartre antic, not missing a s a splash of the spotlight. And then there's me. Does anyone else feel this way? I thought so.
    Many of us go day by day, looking average on the outside. But on the inside, we do posses something special. But how to show it... that's something else entirely. Like most of you, I don't want to spend the rest of my shool years being unknown, going from class to class, just another face in the crowd. I want to make a difference.
    "So who will I be this year?" I ask myself. The answer could be anything. Join a new club, become a voluneer. If the school doesn't have a student newspaper, complain. Get involved. Use your voice. I know I will. This year will be one to remember. This year I won't be just another face in the crowd. Will you?

    mumbled "Welcome to my world"

    As you can probably see, I am a newcomer to this website. And like most of you, my ambition is to be a writer. But where to start? I am yet to publish my creative writing because I thought I should first try what needs more work. Journalism. I know - starting a blog isn't the equivalent to having your own article, but it's a start. I read somewhere that having a blog is the best way to get noticed as a writer, so why not try it? With the expanding internet these days, I'm not surprised. So, through the world of the web I'll try to introduce myself the best I can.Most of my blogs will be related to every day teen life, and what others can relate to. but for now, I'll keep it simple. In some ways, I'm like the average teen girl - I get insecure every once in a while, I always try to be at the most latest social event (I'm already planning my xmas dance dress). I love shopping, reading (my latest addiction - The Hunger Games) and I could spend hours listening to Taylor Swift. But some things make me different, too - my obsessive need to prove others wrong that I will in fact become an author one day, my new ambition to meet new people and make new friends. My love of baking. My fear of change conflicting with my desire to be better. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. If I don't like someone, I won't carefully tip-toe around them. I hate bullies. I don't follow the crowd. And there you have it - Welcome to my world. Love, mikhaila x
