// she’s got everything, not everything //

Look at this stuff
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who has everything?

Hey, welcome back to my corner of the web! Today’s blog post is going to be about me talking about how I feel and almost ranting, but not like an angry rant, just like me talking about something that I feel often, and I am hoping that maybe you can relate to it.

anyways

let us start this post.

Isn’t strange, no matter how much you have, you always long for more. Even if it was the best day in your life, there was still one thing that you didn’t do, such as listen to your favorite song or go to that cute antique shop you have been wanting to go to. Somehow that longing, makes you kind of forget about everything you did do, and you just focus on what you didn’t get to do.

its human nature

but that’s, not an excuse

We think that we deserve everything that we get, and if we don’t get it we feel as if we aren’t treated kindly. Like, let’s say your Mom says you can’t borrow any books from the library today, or your Dad won’t let you get the new app that came out. You feel as if they are being unfair. In your mind, you feel as if they owe you it. Now, sometimes this feeling can be subtle and you don’t really care that you can’t get a book from the library or download the app, but there is always something that taunts you, what if a  book that you wanted is on the shelves and you really want to take it home with you, but your mom says no. You probably will feel upset, and bitter. I can understand that. This all may not make sense and, that’s okay, I am just trying something new and I am just sharing my heart and how I feel and I am trying to inspire others to be grateful.

 things we don’t like happen

even though bad things happen, it’s up to you to make the right response.

but that’s hard

it is, but remember that there are so many other people that are going through the same thing. You are not alone.

🙂

So I don’t know if this made sense or anything, but maybe if you want we can discuss everything and talk about it. I really want to hear what you have to say and, yeah.

Even though it may seem as if you don’t have everything you want, remember you are blessed. And I think that we should start counting our blessings and stop taking things for granted, we have so much more then we think.

Hello! I am back with another entry!

This is my team:

I used two prompts, three drawings, and one photograph. I used my team’s name, Meadows= 8 points

   The Letter

  Asher’s Point of View

“Oh my, this would look so cute on you!” Millie squealed pointing at a black kitten onesie.

REALLY bad drawing I made of a onesie, (it looks a lot better than this)

 

I let out a soft chuckle, amused. That was the one-millionth thing she had squealed about today. Every second she would dart across the mall and squeal about something. “Okay, that’s enough squealing for today…” I smiled, letting out a soft yawn.

“Okay, fine. It’s just that I haven’t been to a mall in ages!” She laughs.

We wander around the mall for another hour and then we head to the cash register and checkout. The cashier is a young, bubbly girl with bright blue hair. When she sees Millie, she gasps.

Aisling

“MILLIE!”She shouts, running over and hugging her.

“AISLING!” She shouts back, hugging her.

I just stand there awkwardly. “Oh, Asher, This is my friend Aisling!” Millie smiles, “Aisling, this is my husband Asher!”

“YOUR MARRIED?!” She shouts, so loud the whole mall probably could hear.

“YEAH!!!”

“But, you’re so young!”

“I am not, I am twenty-four and Asher is twenty-seven.”

“That is still REALLY young!”

“Okay guys, please calm down. It’s nice to meet you Aisling,” I smile, outstretching my hand. She reaches for it and shakes it, very hard. She and Millie are practically twins, they are very enthusiastic, very bubbly, and veryyyyyyy dramatic.

Aisling looks over at Millie’s stomach, which currently, is a bump.

“Whoa! ARE YOU PREGNANT!?” She squeals.

“YESSSSSSSSSSS!”

“REALLY!? CAN I HELP YOU PLAN A BABY SHOWER?!”

“YESSSSSS YAYYY!” They are practically jumping around and dancing.

“What do you guys think you are going to name the baby?”

“Astrid! We will name her Astrid.”

“And if its a boy,” I interrupt, “We will name him Blake.”

“I HOPE ITS A GIRL!!” Aisling squeals.

“MEEEE TOOO!” Millie squeals even louder.

I roll my eyes, I really don’t care if the baby is a boy or a girl, as long as its healthy.

“Millie, I really think we should get going,” I glance at my watch and let out a soft sigh.

Aisling hands Millie a postcard with a man riding giant chickens in a bright meadow on it. “I meant to give this to you years ago.”

I laugh, very hard. The photo was so amusing, I just couldn’t maintain a straight face. After finally checking out, we arrive back home.

Millie’s Point Of View

“I cannot believe I saw Aisling there! I haven’t seen her for years!” I smile

“That’s wonderful Millie, but can you try not to squeal so much, so loudly? The whole mall doesn’t need to know that your twenty-three.” Asher says, going through the mail. He pulls a letter out that says; “URGENT MESSAGE”

He starts to read it and his face turns to a worried expression, “Millie…?”

“Yeah, Whats wrong…?”

He opens his mouth to speak, then closes it, letting out a sad sigh.

“What-what happened…?!” I ask, confused, worried and frightened.

He looks at over at the window, outside into the rain, as if it would take away his worry and fear. “M-Millie… you aren’t from Adreinelle…?”

IMG_0466.JPG

I start to feel sick, how did they find out, why? My life was finally perfect. I look down and take a deep breath, “No, I am not from Adrienelle, I am from, Latraion…”

“They want to execute you… we need to flee!”

I feel tears sprouting from my eyes,”No… how-? How did they find out?”

“I-I don’t know… but why did you flee your country…?”

I let out a sigh and wipe my tearstreaked face,”…Latraion used to be a beautiful place full of peace, love, and happiness. Until the loving president died and a new president was chosen. He was bitter and manipulative, playing with peoples minds and encouraging them to make the wrong choices. Leaders we trusted, turned evil, family members joined his side, oppressing others. My parents were weak and tired, I tried to save them, but… they died.”

“I-I’m so sorry, Millie…” He says, wrapping his arms around me and hugging me tightly.

“…So I came here, to get a new start… I didn’t think that anyone would notice, anyone would find out…” I say softly, a few more tears running down my face.

He gently strokes my forehead,”Shhh… It’s okay…” he whispers.

“…But everything is not okay…” I whisper back.

He opens his mouth to speak, but before he can, there is a huge banging noise at the door. My heartbeat quickens, and I feel petrified.

“Hide!” He whisper-shouts. But I can’t move, not even an inch.

Within seconds the door falls to the ground. I squeeze my eyes shut, tears streaming down my cheeks, paralyzed by my fear.

…To be continued…

I hope you all enjoyed! 🙂

il_fullxfull.1076156844_dsphMERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I am really excited about this post! I have some big news that I can’t wait to share!

Let’s Start off with blog updates!

1Elysian Artiste has hit 111 followers!!!!

Image result for yayyyy gif

I just want to thank you all so much! This means a lot to me and I am really grateful for all of the amazing people I’ve met on WordPress! Thanks so much!

d Stats Are BOOMING!

Elysian Artiste is getting 33 views every two hours, every day. I am not sure if that is a lot or a little but I am still thankful! Elysian Artiste has gone from a few views a day, to 33 views hourly each day, that is amazing!

 

d (1)Starting  Elysian Artiste has helped me find the true me.

I have started many blogs about my various interests, Most of the things I was blogging about, wasn’t really what I truly loved, It was just popular things others were blogging about, such as American Girl Dolls and Beanie Boos. I didn’t get that far and I felt as if I was pretending to truly love those items. I realized that just because other girls wrote about their dolls and got a lot of visitors, comments, likes, etc didn’t mean that was what I should do.  So I started Elysian Artiste and it was one of the best choices I ever made. I learned that being yourself and doing what you love, is better than pretending to be someone else. I posted my stories, art, and photography, because that was me, and that is what I love to do!

big news

My parents let me get a youtube channel! I am super duper excited and I can’t wait!

What I got for Christmas

So I didn’t get a lot of items for Christmas, but my parents gave me more opportunities and privileges.

1 A YOUTUBE CHANNEL

I am so thankful! I have always wanted a youtube channel! Every time I was unboxing something or drawing or something like that I would record myself and talk to my “so-called’ subscribers. Now I finally have one! I am so happy! I have been prepping for this channel for years and I am excited to make it a real channel!

dA WRECK THIS JOURNAL

For countless years, I have been watching people wreck these journals, and I always thought that they were so COOOOOL! It literally was the only thing I watched for a while. After a few months of watching the videos, I kind of stopped because I got interested in some other things but I still wanted one. So in November, I started to look at the videos some more and I knew I really wanted and I thought it was to help me unleash my creative juices, even more, inspire me to think out of the box.

So basically, long story short, I got one! I actually just decorated the cover today and I love it! I am going to be making a series of posts and Videos about the journal and show you my progress!
