I'm very excited to meet you.

My real first name is Anne, I'm 13, and my pronouns are she/her. I'm writing a book called Boundary and I just made a cover for the (pretend) "movie" of it, though I don't think I can post it 'cause it has pictures of people.

What is your favorite thing to do in life?

My favorite thing to do is read. Or craft. For example, I needle-felted a mouse.

I saw that your favorite book is The Map to Everywhere. It sounds interesting; what is the summary?

"To Master Thief Fin, an orphan from the murky pirate world of the Khaznot Quay, the Map is the key to finding his mother. To suburban schoolgirl Marrill, it’s her only way home after getting stranded on the Pirate Stream, the magical waterway that connects every world in creation. With the help of a bumbling wizard and his crew, they must scour the many worlds of the Pirate Stream to gather the pieces of the Map to Everywhere–but they aren’t the only ones looking. A sinister figure is hot on their tail, and if they can’t beat his ghostly ship to find the Map, it could mean the destruction of everything they hold dear!"

I love it. There's four books. I also like the Eragon Quartet.

I read the first book. (Eragon)

Partway through the second, I got bored because there seemed to be too many fight scenes. I'm sure I just didnt stick with it long enough.

I want you to know I'm only allowed on here twice a week (Tuesday/Saturday or Monday/Friday), so even if I don't reply for a while, I haven't forgotten about you!!!!

And there are too many fight scenes in Eragon, but I like the other parts (with the dragons and magic and stuff).

So--what's your home like? 

We have two houses--one for the refridgerator and technology, the other for home stuff like sleeping and eating. That means every time we want to make a meal, we have to walk all the way up the path (it's about 200 feet)! There are many reasons for this set-up, one being that we have better wifi connection at the upshack so it made sense to put the solar panels there for the technology, which meant we needed to have the fridge there too. I'm sure it seems weird but it's just my life.

I don't have any siblings, but I DO have a cat named Kits-Kits von Catso. HE IS ADOWABLE :> Laughing

Do you have any siblings/pets?

I have TONS of cousins, they're practically coming out of the faucets. AND THEY ARE ALL CRAZY. LIKE WHEN THEY SEE EACH OTHER THEY RUN AROUND SCREAMING FOR NO APPARENT REASON. But I love them! I just got a new cousin (a girl). I haven't met her yet, but I've seen pictures so cute!!

My house is a two story building with a basement. Since A) I live in the suburbs on a corner, and B) I live next to a power-line field, I have a quite large yard. Because I am homeschooled, I have a school room (it's very messy).

Overall, my house is not neat, but not messy either. 

I have one brother and one sister (both younger), and two frogs (leftover from a school project on frogs' life cycle). I really want a cat, but my mom and dad don't want any pets. :)

I also have a new cousin! She's so cute. I didn't get to get to know her much, because her four year old brother monopolized my time, but oh well.

Oh, wait, I have two new cousins. The second is still a newborn, and I get to see him in person over Thanksgiving. :)

Frogs omg wow

that's cool! I'm an only child (for the time being). I wasn't allowed any pets for years and years and then I got two guinea pigs. Then when we moved they went to live with my grandma. 

A cat was out of the question still but then one night we were inside talking and heard a sound like a bird. Turned out to be my cat, he was only 4 weeks onld at the time. Though he was wild by the next day he was on my lap. Laughing His mama abandoned him for weaning i guess?

At any rate~~there's still hope for you! Besides once you're old enough you can get a cat all on your own (I know that isn't comforting--still). 

What did you do today? And do you like to listen to music if so what's your favorite song?

Oh, heck yeah, I am so getting a cat after I move out (and can afford one and have enough room for one).

Let's see . . .

Today I got up at 1:30 pm (woke up at 11, but stayed in bed reading). I also procrastinated folding my laundry. I finally finished packing, which is good because I'm travelling to see my grandparents tomorrow and staying for two nights (with the rest of my family, of course).

My favorite song is Polaroid by Imagine Dragons. My friends introduced me, but I don't have any of their music, so I have to listen with online.


What is the thing you are most proud of, that you did or made?

I made a rainbow hat I call, "The Best Hat Ever Made."

It was inspired by a book (Jackaby).

The main character had a hat made from wool from the last surviving yeti, dyed in ink, mixed by Baba Yaga herself, and knit for his birthday by a wood nymph.

However, the nymph was not good at knitting; the hat was described as "looking like a child's drawing of a hat that might be mistaken for broccoli or an elephant if held the wrong way up" and "that thing on your head."

I called mine "the best hat ever made" as a joke, since it did look impressive, but also messy and silly.

I am very proud of my hat.

I just got back from my grandparents'! So hi again. :)

I am in the middle of reading the Dragonwatch series by Brandon Mull. I like how the author build the world realistically and intricately.

Also, want to decorate this place? We've been talking in it, but let's decorate. I envision a clearing in the woods with a stream off to one side.

Yesterday I got to meet my new cousin she's sooooo cute; who knew babies were so tiny?

My favorite song is "All out of Love" by Air Supply.

The thing I'm most proud of is the time I saved a pig (if you go to the thread labeled "CBFF CAHT THREAD" you can read the whole story.

That hat sounds awesomeeeee!! I want one you should sell them! Have you read The Little Prince? It is a bit sad, of course, but what you said reminded me of where the narrator drew a boa snake with an elephant inside it (weird?) and everyone thought it was a hat!

I will check out "Dragonwatch." Thanx! And how was your trip??

Yes let's decorate! A stream is lovely.

Yes, I have read The Little Prince. The book was good, just not my type of story.


My trip was good, thanks! I went up north to see my grandparents and my new cousin. He is so tiny! And cute!


Also, let's add a picnic blanket in the middle, with cushions to sit on.
