If you couldn’t tell from the header and title, I’m on a trip to Vietnam. Currently I’m at the Delhi airport, and from here we’re going to Bangkok, then Hanoi. The big question: what the hell am I doing here?
So remember that post from wayyy back in February when I said I was doing this competition thingy called the World Scholar’s Cup? Weellllll, we’re sort of going for the global round of this competition, which is held in Hanoi, Vietnam. I’m gonna be super busy for around 4 days, but I’ll still post a little something everyday – just a rundown of the events of the day. I mean you guys probably won’t be interested but this blog is like my journal – I love writing down everything I’ve done as a momento?? Is that weird???
no, fanfiction is not just 11-year-olds writing bad smut
Hello, people of the internet!
If you’re a millennial, and part of a fandom, you’ve probably read – or at least glanced at – some fanfiction. But lots of people dismiss it as plagiarism and meaningless, explicit, smut. While there might be some sexual content in a few fanfictions, that is not the only thing there is and the whole community shouldn’t be judged based on them. There are so many beautifully written fanfictions that are about the feelings, the psychological profiles, and chaste relationships of characters. I’ve come up with a list of reasons why fanfiction is not a joke, but a revolution.
This isn’t really a blog post, it’s more of a cry for help. I’m going through major aesthetics crisis. I’m stuck between keeping this theme and changing to another **classier** one.
While I love this theme and all of it’s cuteness and blueness (?), the widgets are really annoying and hard to manage – whenever I add pictures, it ends up looking really bad. I found another theme – that’s apparently quite popular amongst bloggers? – in which the widgets look awesome, and on a whole it just looks really neat and clean. So, I guess what I’m asking is: do I switch to a newer and neater theme, or do I stick with this one and keep my branding?
So summer has officially arrived (like two weeks ago but whatever) and I have so much work to do. I need to study my arse off, update this blog for you guys, work on the script for our annual school production, do the summer holiday homework (CURSE YOU, SCHOOL!), and work on my almost non-existent novel.
So, I like writing. (I feel like I mentioned this before? I don’t know if you guys knew that or not.) Fantasy is my home base, but I occasionally like venturing into the more angsty and sad sections of literature.
Basically, I wrote a really sad short story I want to share with you guys:
