Literary Loom

A historical fiction/ Sci Fi written by my own mother takes you on an adventure through history's heroes and the divine hand of god through out history. Josh Sawyer a new student is matched up with this weird o of a girl named Ester for an English assignment, a oral report of a book. Theirs so happens to be Joan Of Arc by Mark Twain. Josh hating books didn't even start and has only days to finish it. Ester on the other hand has already started the first half and days that with the help of her Uncle they can finish it in no time. Josh with no other option agrees. At the weird house of the Uncle who happens to be an adventurer creates a time travel machine but only for books. Thanks to this they finish it on time and do great on the report so great that Josh is admitted to the Debate Team like he wanted. Mr. Pierce a creep of a teacher is the captain. Right away it is obvious that he is a controlling man who everyone obeys. Except for Josh who stood up for Ester to Mr. Pierce saying that she was nonsense because she believed in God. In the process of defying Mr. Pierce he challenges him to a debate to prove God that he is real. Josh returns to the Loom going through history proving that God exists. The debate is here, who is to win? Note: Through out this book you are inspired and touched. This book lets you know that He is real, and the indescribable way of his love. There is no doubt. This book will make you cry.

Non-Fiction

I like to point out that there are many book genres that it can be overwhelming to know which is which, branches of other branches which turn to twigs. But with a knowledge there is power, I think knowing you book genres can help those know what they want. So I will be posting book genres and their info and a book as an example, today I will start with non-fiction, an easy start. Non-Fiction: the opposite of fiction Dictionary: The branch of literature comprising works of narrative prose dealing with or offering opinions or conjectures upon facts and reality, including biography, history, and the essay ( opposed to fiction and distinguished from poetry and drama ). My Def: Basically a true story or a book with a bunch of facts. Tip: There are some good non-fictions that aren't just manuals or facts, biographies are a great place to start, and can be quite like a good story. Book: The life of Olaudah Equiano by himself (quite liked it in fact) .

My End to Swim Team

I would like to add to my eariler post about swimming. Due to my health I had no choice but to quite swim team. Three hours a day and I was dying and gettting sick. Although i did quite swim team I did not quite swimming. I still swim and it feels great but I would be lying if I said I didn't miss swim team. But life goes on and I am happy. At least my stress is down and I have time for homework!!!

Swimming is Me

I have loved swimming since I was a little girl with pigtails. I loved jumping in and making a splash. I loved taking the challenge of the deep end. I even loved the smell of chlorine (still do). And every time I went somewhere with my family, I asked my dad "Is there a pool at the hotel?" Of course there was every time or I wouldn't go. The pool was my vacation not the actual "vacation" that is what I cared about, that's all I cared about. I remember when I was four is when I started my swimming lessons. How I loved it! I loved floating on my back and putting my face in the water. I felt proud of myself when I was faster than the other kids. I was determined to work harder when I was the slow one, failure was not an option. As years went by the pool was my best friend, but around the age of eight medical problems got in the way and I quite. Since then I have forgotten my love of swimming. I forgot about swimming. Later in the years as I heard the kids around me with their hobbies, I admit made me jealous. They had something that they loved, that they were good at. I had nothing. Not yet anyways. I tried everything. Baseball to Volleyball, I sucked at all. It wasn't till my sister reminded me of my swimming school and pushed me to join the swim team in high school. So I did, and the first time in years when I jumped into that water, I didn't realize how much I missed the water. I was alive again. Swimming was hard of course, there are some practices where I wish I was dead. Some days I wanted to quite. But the meets when I saw my time, it was worth it. At the end of the swim season I got sick. Again. I had to quite, again. It crushed me. Without water, I'm not Dani, swimming is me. So a school year and a summer later here I am writing this. School is going to start soon and I'm ready, whether I know it or not. Being back in the water is priceless.

Hope

School for me this year is basically over. A week before as I looked at my grades, and considering that I was gone for half the year, it wasn't looking to good. The hard work that I put forward while I was sick, I believed will be for nothing. I was concerned that I would half to repeat the year, or maybe graduate early. Now today I some how manage by great teachers and hours of studying a passing grade in my classes. Through this experience, my fear was not being behind, graduating late, or failure. It was the future and it's consequences. To many people the future holds excitements and plans of new beginnings. A change. To me it's something to fear. When it comes to the future like a glass half empty. What pain could possibly happen? But the thing that scares me the most, is the unknown. WE as people have no idea what our future brings. For all I know I could die tomorrow. All I know is my present, and my past. Not the future and the unknown is scary, how do we prepare for something we dont know? We have faith and hope. And in some cases hope is all we have. Something we must keep. A necessary prep. The only real thing that we know that we have and is assured to be in the future. We have hope in all times of our lives. Past, when you hope that you would get that toy you always wanted. Present, I hope that I wont fall asleep just yet. Future, hope for comfort, a better life. Through out all those days of being sick and unsure of the future, hope is all I had and all I needed to get started. The first step.

Come Back

I must say that it has been a very long time since I last posted. I apologize. Who knew that high school could be possibly THAT time consuming? Not me apparently. But that doesnt matter now, it's time to get this blog up-to-date. Whats happened in the past? Whats happening now? Whats going to happen in the future, what are the plans? Well I will answer those as best I can. I remember the last I post was something about elemnet, sorry to say that the idea is dead. I have the beginning but no end. But where I want to get to was last year during this time as a freshman. It was the end of the school year and I was spending my fourth period in the library. I just finished my latest books and adding my pages. Ready for the summer and high school. Today, I still read, and I still love it. However I dont have the time like I use to. There is homework to think about, your social life becomes more important all of a sudden, and my biggest problem is that the teachers assiging books, which get in the way of reading the books that I want. (tip to all those readers, dont read classics just yet, or you will have to read them again in high school). Not only the homework and the social life. There are the after school activity, for me I joined the swim team in the fall and at that time it took most of my free time during the day. But no matter how busy I am, I will find time to read. Now for future post, I decided that the reading pages record I keep to the side will be no more. Not enough time to make it impressive XD. I will of course post about the books I read, and my review of it. My rating will be on goodreads.com which also needs a good come back. Books are not also the only thing, this blog is called the life of danner, so it will be about that. Friends, swiming, and so much more! Readers I hope you enjoy my new posts!

They were noble and high powered and ruled over the world as one, until the Titans came along then eventually the Gods. The Elements were forgotten and pushed to the edge of the world where they were forgotten.
