Granger Danger chords

Sam Shady asked for them.  I don't know how right they are, because I realized after saving them to my computer that most of the chords either don't work on ukulele or I'm just not good enough at it yet.  But here they are, nonetheless.Intro:E5(VII), Badd4/E, Aadd9(V),E5(VII), Badd4/E, Aadd9(V), F#m - G#m - A RON:     E5(VII)                Badd4/E        Here I am, face to face,                        Aadd9(V)            F#m G#m A        With a situation I never thought I'd  e - ver see       …See More

I can't believe I just wrote a Harry Potter/Twilight crossover.

Hermione came to in a darkened room, her head pounding, with no idea of where she was or how she got there.  She sat up, rubbing her forehead, and surveyed the room.  There wasn’t much to survey: a dark mound that looked to be another person, four dark grey walls and a heavy metal door.  She crossed over to it and tried the knob, but to no avail.  It was firmly locked.  She threw her weight against it, but still it didn’t budge.

Even after seven years and one wizarding war, Hermione…

"People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one" (Burke)

I am seriously worried about my psyche.



Normal people dream about falling and never stopping. Normal people dream about flying. Normal people dream about things that somehow pertain to their lives. Not me.



I've never had falling or flying dreams, or any of the dreams that it seems everyone has. Instead, I dream about being pregnant, or getting married, or having a kid, or having to take care of my sisters' kids because they don't want them. I usually am confused as to how any… Continue

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. A. A. Milne

A New Year. A new beginning, a fresh start.



This means Resolutions, it means Looking Back and it means making Plans for the Rest of My Life. It took me a while to come up with Resolutions and Plans this year, and Looking Back kind of happened along the way.



Last year was the first time I ever made and kept a Resolution - to read one book a week for a total of 52 books in one year. I…

What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable?" — John Green (An Abundance of Katherines)

It's been a while since I posted to my regular blog, and even longer since I posted over here, too.  So here's something new:

 

It took the deaths of two awesome people to inspire me to finally get off my high horse and actually fight for something. What will it take for you?



You already know what happened with Geoffrey. I'm not going to tell that story again. I've told it so many times that I think people are getting tired of it. But there's another story that I need…

Books. And...Ningmaster...?

I sat around in my dorm room at university for a long time, trying to think of an interesting way to write an application blog. I decided to just to talk about why I like books.



There are a number of reasons why I love books. Books are my life, and I mean that literally.



I read like I breathe. Seriously – I read the…

Words can not describe the feeling of actually finishing NaNo! Alas I do not have to explain it to you because you know!

I am incredulously excited for Christmas because I absolutely love spending time with my family and friends. I am not overly concerned about gifts :)

New years will be interesting for me because I am going to a gala so it's a fancy banquet and dance. I am excited about getting all dressed up and prettyfied hee hee hee. I have quit drinking but believe me there was many many times in the past where I have gotten completely inebriated. 

That is a fun picture and holy bananas that must have taken absolutely forever to do! I'm in love with the TARDIS on his shirt. I could never take the time to make that. 

Good luck with your exams! You will do fantastic I just know it :)

Here is me enjoying some tea completely makeup free ;) 

Best Wishes and DFTBA

*Squee* She is absolutely adorable!!! I just want to pinch her cheeks! The tattoo is most definitely on an apendage hee hee. It is on my left wrist :D I am going to make a video about it soon :) 

I am so happy that you found another Nerdfighter friend!!! Yay! I don't have any in Cambridge yet because I have not found them :( I will find them I swear! ha ha ha 

Even more excitement for me is the fact that I did indeedy finish my novel!!!! I had it done last night but my computer ate 400 words last night so I had to finish off the remaining words this morning. It really needs a whole lot of editing but I completed my very first NaNo!!! Woo Hoo! You can do it next year for sure! Just plan it :)

This is my boyfriend being special while we were bowling the other night :D Hope you get a good laugh out of it lol

 

Best Wishes, 

<3 Heather <3

I am very VERY happy that the song was helpful because I know how much it helped me. 

We have also had a few snow storms here but nothing has stuck and today it has been raining all day. I am so happy that your apartment is all decorated :D I haven't even started to decorate the house here because I have been doing NaNoWriMo and I am only at 42,044 words! I have a couple days left so I can do it still!!! Eek writing about your life is hard, it may have been easier to write fiction! lol I am happy to be doing NaNo as this is my first year and I am doing well! It's a great way to get a first draft to a book! I can not wait to get it finished so I can submit it then I can edit it! Oh how it will need a whole lot of editing!!!

Your photo today comes in the form of a wondrous tattoo I got on Thursday!

You Like? ha ha ha yea that is a picture of a picture.. I got a new camera and I have not uploaded the software for it so that I can use it on my computer yet... ha ha ha I just got the camera tuesday... It's been an expensive week... Hope you are feeling better and got all of your history reading done in your festive apartment!
Best Wishes,

Well, I always put it like this: when a German kid talks German and a Dutchie talks Dutch, they can understand echother quite well. I always find it funny to try.

But I don't know about the similarities of English and German...

Yay My Little Pony <3 I know little to nothing about the new series but I used to love playing with the original ones :D I have a song that really helped me with my heart wrenching breakup with mark and here it is. It is called Staying is Worse Than Leaving by Sunny Sweeney

"Staying's Worse Than Leaving"

Leaving's hard...trust me, it's really bad
It'll shake ya, damn-near break ya, it always has
You don't go until you're praying to break even,
Until staying's worse than leaving

God knows we tried everything that we could do
You can keep your pride and blame me if you need to
Even though this freedom feels a lot like treason,
I know staying's worse than leaving

It's gotta get better, it can't get worse
Hope it's a blessing not a curse
I don't care who passes judgement on my reasons
I know staying's worse than leaving

It's gotta get better, it can't get worse
Hope it's a blessing not a curse
I don't care who passes judgement on my reasons
I know staying's worse than leaving

Both our hearts let go a long time ago
Words leave scars and Lord knows they heal slow
Our love died but somehow we are both still breathin'
I just hope someday we'll look back on this grievin'
and say, staying's worse than leaving
Yeah, that staying's worse than leaving

Yeah, that staying's...
...worse than leaving

Hope you enjoy that song and it helps you. It is a country song and I proudly love country. there is a video on it on ze YouTubes :) ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFRaXQIwA7I&ob=av2e )

 Flowers always make me happy too so here is a picture I took :)

Ok back to ze NaNoWriMo for me! I only have 15,000 more words to go... oh my lol Bye bye now!

Best Wishes, 

<3 Heather <3

Leuven, a friends friend lives there...  I live in Leiden, famous university there (: Yeah I know, but when you live in a country of my size, you think everything takes too long. xD Although I'm less impatient that most of the people here.
