Weekly Photo Challenge: Breakfast

Haha! For those who know me well this is what I would’ve heard when they’d read the theme of the challenge of the week. To tell you the truth most of the time when I stay home, I don’t eat breakfast. I just tend to forget about it, compared to when I’m at school because school demands a lot of mental efforts — and you know what? I’m more tired when I do mental things than when I exercise physically!

Don’t do what I do, do what I say.

That’s a great quote, because I don’t encourage you not to eat breakfast. Eat your breakfast!! It’s the most important meal you should have in your every day routine! For mostly everyone it’s not and it’s rather dinner that comes out to be the most important, but scientifically that’s not true. Eat breakfast please. Every day.

I’m not perfect, I know… but anyway, I made an effort to have a breakfast today, for the challenge’s sake… and also because I felt slightly hungry this morning 🙂 Might be because I slept on my book last night? (or very early this morning)

Happy breakfast everyone!

morning breakfast

This morning I invited my friends Shira and Andy (please check out their blogs) to share breakfast with me — virtually via Twitter LOL — and we ate crunchy bread with Nutella and digested everything with a cup of coffee! ^^ (I drink my coffee with a small amount of milk in it by the way)

Have a nice Friday everyone!!!

Nano? Are you still with me?

If you have been following me on Twitter you might have noticed that… well I haven’t tweeted much these days and neither did I posted much on my blog because I had a full week of depression + exams + keeping up on NaNo.

Fortunately NaNo wasn’t that much of a problem, only that it really used up all my spare time! 😛

Anway this will be a short post…

Everyday I’m trying to write at least 2000 words instead of the usual 1667 so that you’re safer… 🙂 and also because I discovered a horrible thing about Microsoft words:

The word counter is terrible!

Sites of the Month: October 2011

Before I get to the point of this post…

This month has been very fully active for me. First and foremost: October is the climax of my student life i.e. it involves exams! And worse! Now that Samhain’s Eve and NaNoWriMo are approaching, my international exams have come to their hottest points too! I feel that this week will be a very busy – productive is a nice word too I guess – with all of this. In addition I have to keep up with my two blogs and Twitter and read the blogs I’ve faithfully been subscribed too and therefore I have to check my mail constantly… Moreover now that my sister’s exams are over – she’s just 11 – and as she’s going to secondary school next year I allow her to have a glimpse of internet – i.e. I’m sharing my laptop with her… so I have less time for my virtual activities… which is so frustrating right now! Then there are the passive activities like reading and watching my favourite series, plus my urge of the night: to write in bed in my random copybook (you saw it here) – which is starting to lack pages… aww too bad I so loved it! I’ll ask my friend to buy another for me 😛 (it was a gift from this very friend you see)

But you know what? I love my life that way.

Yes. You read it.

LOL coffee

Haha I always find some interesting image on Google to add some… uh coffee? to a blog post! 😀

A NaNo Update!

Firstly before I go on with the point of this post, which as you can read in my previous post I promised to write, I’d like to share a wonderful, touching post on the ups and downs of friendship – written by Aurora here: FRIENDSHIP: WHAT IS A FRIEND?.

Alright now… we are approaching Nanowrimo… and as I’m a planner, I’ve begun to plan my story and I’ve come halfway to it 🙂

I wrote everything down in a copybook… but as it was a mess, I decided to divide my notes into chapters (I used to do that for fanfictions) by index cards. Each card is one chapter and on one side I write the chapter number, while on the other side I plot main points. This is an awesome way to organise NaNo. Get inspired in an Alexandra Sokoloff’s post: The Index Card Method and Structure Grid.

TV Series Just Eat Me Alive

Something you should know about me: I can get easily emotionally attached to well-written books and good-plotted movies. I’m also a bit stoical because I almost never cry or whatever… even if sometimes I want to as sometimes it can be good for me.

If you’ve been following me on Twitter you’ve seen that my latest tweets talk about the fact that I’ve finished to watch the whole Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (TSCC) series yesterday.

terminator robot cameron

I yet have to watch the movies of The Terminator in 1984 onwards 😀 (so excited for that!)

Back to TSCC: This is a series that really touched me and that I fully watched. I usually like very few tv series because the more I grow up the more I expect specific things from movies or books or series… if you get what I mean.

10 Things I Want To Relive: I’ve been tagged!

I got tagged to make this list by my friend Andy (check out his awesome WordPress blog here: http://dragoneystory.wordpress.com)

The tag is from Twitter but I think it’s better to write it here… and therefore make a WordPress tag! So I tag ALL of you who are reading this and when you’re done put the link to your post in the comment box below 🙂 whatever blog you have.

So I’ve been living for 16 years and it’s very short… thus it’s hard for me to remember the moments I want to relive… 10 things out of 16 years! lol that’s really hard for me! Especially that I don’t remember anything from the first five years of my life…

There isn’t any particular order to the list…

I begin:

10 Things I want to Relive:

1. My first 3 years of secondary school life – when the word ‘stress’ didn’t belong to my vocabulary.

2. My moments with my best cousin, Arthur, when we were little, still innocent children.

3. The 2008 Drama Festival.

4. This Friday 13 when we were enjoy ourselves with a superstitious Keshree (a friend) before she went to live in Canada for ever…

5. When my best friend and I were enjoying a movie “A walk to remember” (so beautiful!) just before the exams in tthe lecture theater at school.

6. When most of the school was in the lecture theater watching Tangle (lol so funny!!) a day before Stress would come over…

7. Music classes of Ms Clarisse.

8. When I was hanging with my best friend in primary school who unfortunately left to emigrate to Australia.

9. The series of nights I was having premonitory dreams.

10. When close friends that are no more friends were still friends…

Well that’s all I could get from my short life 😛 I know that later in the future I’ll be enjoying so much… then maybe I will re-tag myself… 🙂

Do You Follow Yourself?

Well, I DO. Yes it’s true, for both of my blogs. I follow/subscribe myself.

Is this a way to get another bonus follower? No not really.

What it does is that this way you can be at the same time the writer and the reader.

Got it?

No.

Alright, here’s the trick:

When you follow youself, you can see how people get your notifications about your posts, and this can make you improve. For e.g. when I first started writing a blog I wrote too many posts at the same time, and I wrote LONG posts. That’s not right at all because then I get lots of mail and when you have lots of mail I guess you just end up marking everything  as ‘read’ or simply don’t bother check your mail anymore. This will make you learn how to control yourself if ever you have this problem.

Maybe you’re not aware of your presentation mistakes, because just like a book, if the cover is nice, it is read. First impression = last impression, right?

Always try to be at your readers’ place and you’ll do the right thing.

Blogging Yours,

An Evil Nymph

My Biggest Blogging Mistake!

On the 25th of June 2011, I started a makeup blog, Makeup Is Art on Blogger. I wanted to share my passion for this art to the world. At first I was completely lost. But gradually, as the weeks passed my blog grew… I got familiar with Blogger and blogging itself… but then one day everything stopped: my followers were only 5 in numbers and weren’t growing for weeks, the comments went down…

What happened? Is this happening to you now?

First we have to check these 3 main things that we should do when one blogs:

1. Publish quality content

2. Participate in the blogging community i.e. comment on other similar blogs, in discussions, forums, contests…

3. Publicize blog through social media like Twitter, Facebook, Stumbleupon…

I think I’m WAY too dramatic!

TRUE-BASED STORY:

So I’ve just barely started to use WordPress and after 4 posts I get notified that my blog has been deactivated because I violate their terms!! This really turned me down! Fortunately there was a link to contact the staff in case it was just an error. I didn’t understand how my blog could already have been reported so I begin to dramatize! As a ‘writer’ I began to imagine lots of scenario: how will be my evening without be able to post these new fresh blog ideas that got into my mind while I was eating??!!

Therefore I contacted them of course and here’s what I wrote:

“I’ve only registered to WordPress some hours before I got deactivated. I had the time to customise my blog, which is a random stuff blog, for everyone’s leisure, and post 4 posts… and hop! deactivated. I think it is an error as I don’t blog for advertising or promotion and I don’t even blog to get money or whatsoever. It’s one of my favourite hobbies since I’ve started on Blogger so I just wanted to try here… Please reactivate my blog! I’m only a girl 16 that needs to escape the stress of life by writing and sharing!”

11 Websites I’m addicted to when I get connected

I’m sure many of you are addicted to some websites in one way or another. Who doesn’t frequently check his facebook profile nowadays? Let’s see if you got the same taste as me. So here’s the Top List:

First and foremost, when I open my browser, I get into my homepage which is Yahoo! So I check my mail…

1. Yahoo! Mail

2. Gmail

Then I check other updates:

A WordPress Welcome

Hi everyone out there! I’m a new WordPress blogger and that’s my first post, and as I can see the WordPress welcome is very nice! They even fooled me in writing the first post for me (which I replaced by that of course) and made me feel like my blog was already being hacked!

Well, anyway, I’m Morgan-Daphne, or MD if you prefer. In fact, that’s not my name. LOL! It just matches my blog title: Evil Nymph. If you get the meaning behind what I just mentioned then follow me ’cause I’ll be eager to meet you! xD

(hey can’t we change the font here??)

Okay, let’s restart:

My name is Daphnée, I’m a girl of 16 this year (2011) and I’m a great fan of legends and myths, as much as I love makeup, as much as I enjoy vidding on Youtube, as much as I wish to become a psychologist when I grow up, as much as I like to read and write, as much as I prefer Twitter to facebook, as much as I want a tattoo, as much as I’m a language lover…

And the list goes on. I’m very um versatile? as you can see so if your interests match mine, feel free to comment!

In fact I’m not a new blogger, I have a blog on blogger on makeup (http://daphyin-makeupisart.blogspot.com) but I’ve recently wanted to try to sign up in various blogging sites – my next target will be tumblr – and therefore my second blog is here.

You won’t be deceived by this blog, ’cause I won’t be writing for nothing, I promise! I might only deceive you when I’ll take some time in posting, because I’ll then be taking part in exams (hey I’m still at school!!)…

As soon as I’ll get used to WordPress my blog will give out only productive and useful articles for everyone! 🙂 I don’t know if it’s a personal blog but it’s not a business blog, I don’t want any money from this. It’s just another hobby 🙂 Moreover everything that I do on the net is not for business, it’s just for FUN.

Hey by the way it’s the very 1st day of Autumn today: the 1st August! and also a Wiccan festival: Lughnasadh.

Blessed be )0(

PS: I’m open-minded – even about religious views. I’m officially Catholic but deep inside I’m sort of agnotic… i.e. I don’t have a particular religion, I only believe in some super force.
