Why I Will Never Respect Meghan Trainor

Ambitiously Living

Dear Meghan,

You have manipulated thousands of adolescent teenagers into a twisted ideology of positive body image, and what’s worse is that I don’t think you even know you in are in the wrong. I do believe that you have a good, kind heart- I really do. However, I believe you are grossly misinformed and confused about your own image, and because of that, you should not be a symbol of positive self-image for women of any age.

Your fame is based off of your promotion of the idea that every female is beautiful in her own way- a belief that I have as well. The difference is that I don’t promote the idea that being curvy is necessarily better than being thin. You have degraded petite females to get further on your path to fame, and further skewed the concept of “positive body image.”

Any revenue you have collected…

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby: 3 Pokemon Gifts!

Tight now, Pokemon is doing a great amount of gifting! With the upcoming codes, you’re able to get three Pokemon. The first two codes have already been announced, with the third likely to come next week (though that has not yet been confirmed).

The first gift was Superior, the snake Pokemon. Simply use the code POKEMON497 and you’ll get your very own! I am pretty sure they all come with hidden abilities, probably the same one. Mine had the Hidden Ability Contrary, which “makes stat changes have an opposite effect”. I cannot wait to use him in battle, though he likely won’t be a huge part of my primary team.

The second gift, announced earlier this week, is Emboar! He’s awesome looking! I am loving his design, not to mention his Hidden Ability Reckless, which “powers up moves that have recoil damage”. He may very well be a part of my main party, since I lack a fire Pokemon and just think it’d be fun to have a piggy on my team. To get him the code is POKEMON500.

I’ll keep you all updated on the Samurott! He is my favorite, and I love him. I cannot wait to have him once again.

Writing

The thing about writing is that it can be difficult. You need to hone your craft, and there are many different ways of doing so. For me, I occasionally have trouble changing perspectives and voices. For instance, if I need to write professionally for so long, it becomes tougher for me to write creatively after a while.

However, there are ways of learning to get through something like that, and any other issue you may face while writing or learning to write. The following is a short list of what I think helps me become a greater writer.

1. Write daily. There are so many websites that are willing to offer you prompts, and if you want, you are welcome to message me for one! I love writing prompts, especially flash fiction.

2. Read regularly. Sometimes its important to take on the role of the “consumer”. Read regularly, see what you like and what genres you would prefer to write with. Allow other’s books to inspire you!

3. Take breaks. Removing yourself can let you think in a clearer way without feeling like every idea has to become something.

I love writing. There is a challenge to it, one that presents itself when you’re least expecting it.

Fantasy Sample

CHAPTER ONE: DAGGERS AND BOWS

The world was quiet as she walked through the thick trees, not even birds were stirring. Leaves crunched beneath her leather-clad feet, and she paused a moment to enjoy the scene. White covered the ground, coating the leaves and brances in frost. The girl hugged her coat to herself, and tilted her head back to look towards the skies as a breeze kicked up. She sighed, looping her arm through her wooden bow. A loud smashing sound startled her, and in an instant, she was up the tree, crouching on its limb, arrow cocked. She breathed in slowly, aiming down the line of the arrow, when she realized she recognized the foot steps.

“Man!” A mannish voice erupts from below. “What are you trying to do, Merks?!” A blonde haired boy stood below, shielding his eyes with his hand and looking towards the girl in her tree.

“You need to be more quiet,” she responded, easing her force on the bow string. “I almost shot you. Besides, you know that tensions are high through the lands.” She tossed her head, light purple hair flying around her. Merks smirked, shoving her arm back through her bow to allow it to rest on her back, before jumping from branch to branch. The blonde boy rolled his eyes, left hand fiddling with the dagger strapped to his belt.

“You need to be less jumpy,” he spoke softly, casting steel blue eyes towards her lithe figure. She landed nimbly on the ground, straightening to turn to him. As she stood before him, Ade grinned. She was dressed different than she would in town, having snuck off to enjoy the forest with him. However, her gear gave away her social stature.

Merks wore a simple, flowing dress that cut from the bottom to just below her breasts. It was well tailored, and a soft shade of blue. Though her stomach was bare, she wore a pair of black shorts that stopped well above her knees. The outfit was pulled together with a pair of thigh high, leather boots. She always felt at her fastest, in what she called her “archery gear”. While she was here in the forest, she was simply another human being. However, in the town, she was known as Princess Maradine, the daughter of the King of Verlaud.

In this land, the land of Verlaud, it is 809 AD and the lands are ruled by kings and queens. Verlaud and Dragnobalt had recently discovered unclaimed land between their territories, and each wished to be the one in control of it. While it was well known that Merks did not approve of this war, few were aware of the extent her disapproval went. She preferred protecting her people to growing her territory.

As Merks and Ade traversed through the forest, she kept her ears open. She knew that the woods could be dangerous, it was why she was never permitted to enter them. Of course, she never listened, but she was always careful. She halted in her steps, widening her eyes and peering about fervently.

“Did you hear that?” she asked Ade, and he shrugged. They both searched the area about them, each on the ready. Merks had her bow drawn taut, aiming the arrow’s tip in every direction she looked, while Ade gripped his daggers in hand tightly.

They heard a cry, and sounds rushing around them. And then everything went dark.

Flash Fiction: A Memory (from the perspective of my old turtle)

I was found in the road, crawling along slowly. A boy picked me up, and took me somewhere. It seemed like we were travelling particularly fast, and I still don’t understand where I was. He dropped me off at a girl’s house. They called me Yertle there, and it seemed to be something comical, but I never understood it. The girl was kind to me, she fed me lettuce and encouraged me to grow. She and her friends would play with me, watching me walk about between them and look around. A part of me wanted to leave, to be free. But it would have been too difficult, or so I thought.

But one day, the boy and the girl lifted me from my white prison, something they called a sink. They walked, hand in hand, around a big area. I could see trees, and smelled fresh air. As they continued walking, I began to smell water. I grew excited when I realized I was outside again! What was their plan? Were they toying with me further, or was I to be released?

We came to a stop, and the girl lifted me up to look me in the face. “Goodbye, little guy.” Her voice sounded sad to see me go. They had carried me out onto a fallen tree overlooking a large lake. The lake looked wonderful, but who knew what was down there? The girl stooped down, and lowered me into the water. Without even looking back, I began my trek back to the wild.

prompt: Write a story that begins with the words “I can’t remember”.

I can’t remember what she smelled like, nor what she wore that day when everything went to shit. The only thing I can recall, if I fight to hard enough, was the smile that graced her face and the way it crinkled her eyes. She had always left me breathless, and yet, I can’t remember her.

We met as children, growing older through the years together. I can’t remember what she said to me the day she walked into school, only that she had flowing brunette hair. She laughed loudly, freely. I was always jealous of that comfort she had in her own skin.

In high school, we went our separate ways. I can’t remember the reason we split, only that she cried and apologized a million times. I used to see her walking, and my heart would stop, long after the arguments had left her colder.

The HTC M8: An Unsolicited Review

I recently upgraded a lot of things, it seems. Well, a few weeks ago, I ordered the new HTC One M8 on Amazon, and I have to say it is probably one of the best phones I have ever owned.

The phone was purchased factory unlocked, so it’s price ranges from 300-600 depending on where you decide to look. The specs on this things are pretty great, too. There are a lot of things I love about this phone, and I haven’t even activated service on it yet. Once I do, I will have some more things to say, I am sure.

Now, one of the cooler things about this phone is that it comes with a metallic cover. I love it, as I am a clumsy-ish person, and have been known to drop my phone from my lap, hand, or really anywhere. The cover makes it a lot more durable, and less likely to break.

Snapdragon. Need I say more? I will, but you should know already. Snapdragon is new, fast and lets the battery last for HOURS longer, even when I am playing on apps all day long, checking my email and sending messages. I spend hours just reading the highlights on my newsfeed.

The screen is 1080×1920 resolution. I LOVE THIS SCREEN. It is so big, and crystal clear. It’s fun to use to watch youtube, and netflix (two of my favorite ways to watch shows, by the way). The HTC one M8 has stunning graphics. Anyone who takes photos, watches shows and just loves high quality imagery will LOVE this phone. Period.

Speaking of taking photos, the camera on this thing is amazing. You can choose between 6 different settings, including selfie, movie, pan 360, dual capture and video. The dual capture is pretty odd, but the pan 360. OH MY GOD. It is so cool. You can take a picture that goes 360 degrees around! I have never been able to do that. The HTC one M8 offers a lot to aspiring photographers, as well as established photographers and artists.

Lastly, and perhaps one of the best parts of this phone, the speakers are astounding. The two speakers are set on the front of the phone, on either side of the screen, which is fantastic. With my old phones, I always had to set the phone on its face to better hear a video or song. Now, I can enjoy beautiful videos while the sound blares from the speakers. It makes things a lot better quality.

*Note: I was not paid to do this review, nor did I receive any other compensation. I just felt like reviewing some of my newer things.

The Lenovo Y50: A Review

The Reasons Why I Love My New Laptop

I recently upgraded from a $300 laptop to a $1,000 laptop. The moment I read through the specs and other information on the Lenovo Y50, I knew it was the laptop for me. It has a whole terabyte of memory at my disposal, so I will never run out of room. The Intel processor is perfect for my gaming addiction, and I can even run League of Legends much better now.

There are, however, a few reasons in particular that this is probably one of my favorite laptops ever. The very first of which is:

  • The placement of the fan

The fan is on the bottom, towards the back of the bottom of the laptop. This is much better than my old laptop, which had the fans off to the left side on the bottom. I regularly had to deal with it overheating on me, and generally speaking, that can really damage the laptop’s battery life. With the Lenovo Y50, they put it in the perfect spot. I can sit with it on my lap without having to worry about burning myself, or overheating it.

  • The screen has beautiful resolution

I am thrilled beyond measure by the screen. It is large, for one. For two, it has 3840×2160 resolution. This leads to a beautiful, stunning picture quality- regardless if I am watching netflix, working or playing a few matches online.

  • The battery doesn’t lie to me.

My battery has not once been wrong about the length of time I have left before I need to go running for my laptop charger. The other day, I played 5 games in a row before I needed to start charging back up. It has lasted for several hours longer than Amazon claimed it would, which is fantastic! I have not had to worry about it dying on me.

There are, I am sure, many other reasons one would want this laptop. For instance, it seems to be pretty similar to Alienware without the huge price. The Lenovo Y50 can be found on Amazon for $1,040.00. Compared to many laptops, this is quite a deal for such a high quality piece of machinery.

*Note: I purchased this laptop on my own, without receiving any payment or anything else for writing this review. I simply felt like writing it.

I am growing as a writer.
