I don’t know how long I’ve been saying that I wanted to start back writing in this thing again. So here I am…again. 1 semester of college down, 9 to go. I have officially changed my major to Elementary Education/Special Education. I’m 100% satisfied with my decision and think that it will be a rewarding job to have.
I’m almost done writing my story that I’ve been working on for almost 2 years (yeah, I know). I think it’s actually going to end up being better than I expected. Everyone that I’ve let read it keeps telling me that I should try to get it published eventually. I guess I’ll see about that once it’s complete. But just for a little synopsis: If you’ve ever read The Little Prince or Jonathan Livingston Seagull, that’s the feel I’m going for. I wanted to create a story that people of all age groups could read, understand, and enjoy. For the younger readers, it would be an imaginary tale of talking trees and birds who form a friendship. To older readers, it would be insight for their own life and tiny tidbits that we should all remember when times are tough. The 2 characters are Oakley (the tree) and Skye (the bird). They form a quite unusual friendship linked together by their “weaknesses” which actually become their strengths.
I’m so excited to finish it. I still don’t know exactly what the outcome will be, but it will soon be discovered.
P.S. anyone–anyone out there who may stumble upon this, I urge you to listen to Jonsi’s song Boy Lilikoi. It will change your life, I swear.
