The Girl Who Doesn’t Care, Cares A Lot

Lissywrites/ September 21, 2015/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

I’ve always thought I was comfortable in my own skin. I don’t embarrass easily. As I demonstrate in the picture below: I’m willing to make a fool of myself for the sake of a laugh. Here I was, at my job, wearing two tree skirts – one as a poncho, one as a skirt – and a matching camo hat

Why I love to read?

Lissywrites/ June 22, 2015/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

When I was I bored, I read Junie B. Jones and laughed at her antics. When my sister was sick and away in the hospital, I could pretend she was staying with Amelia Bedelia and would be coming home soon. When my parents were divorcing, I realized it wasn’t as scary as the Goosebumps books stuffed beneath my bed. When

It’s… contemplative. Introspective. Thoughtful. It is what most would call… Boring. Most people wouldn’t dare define their own writing as boring, but I’m doing just that. Why? Because it says a lot about who I am. While we’re told not to take bad reviews personally, and I tend not to, I do find it interesting that when I see a

I have failed, and I’ll probably fail again

Lissywrites/ November 3, 2014/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Being an independent writer, I often times forget that I can fail, and when I do I often have trouble admitting so. It’s not that I don’t like failing… I mean, I don’t, who does? But what I’m getting at is most of the time failing doesn’t bother me. It didn’t used to, anyway. Most of it is because my

The teachers are failing. Not us.

I don’t tend to make rant posts (too often, anyway), but while sitting in the lobby of one of my school buildings, I happened to listen in on a conversation between a student and a teacher. Often times, our teachers don’t meet with us in their offices. Why? I couldn’t tell you, but this particular discussion was probably better placed

I’m an introvert, and I’m happy

Lissywrites/ September 1, 2014/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Introvert – not synonymous with shyness. An introvert is not characterized by being shy, though that does not mean they aren’t. An introvert is someone who finds people, and interacting with them, to be physically and mentally draining, preferring to be alone to recharge. An introvert is not constantly in a state of depression and should not be characterized as
