Watch out it's a Rant! (Why it is hard to be an Atheist)

So recently I've been super stressed out about what I am doing for High-school. Being Homeschooled, I have to find a co-op, curriculum, ect, that I want to use. I finally found an awesome co-op, well what I thought was an awesome one. We applied. And we were denied. 
The reason?

OK! I am going to say it, I am NOT a Christian. Yes I am an atheist. People make that such a dirty word. 

That doesn't mean I am not a good person. I genuinely love life, people, and the world around me. I respect other peoples religions, I don't criticize, overlook, or judge people of religion. Heck most of my friends are religious. The problem is, people can't treat me that way back. I thought Christianity was about treating others the way you want to be treated.... so if YOU want ME to accept your beliefs, than you should accept mine. 

But... apparently that is not how it works... 
I have never met a Christian that fully accepts my beliefs yet in my life. That is sad and needs to change. It's like racism, but with religion. Being a homeschooler that is an atheist, surrounded by christians and religion, I feel like a third class citizen, that no one cares about, even though I KNOW I deserve better.

SO I CHALLENGE ALL OF YOU! Whatever you believe, to just accept everyone, because it sure would help the world be a little happier, and maybe just maybe you can make someones day a little brighter.

Just be kind.

It's that easy

5 Ways to Spend a Lazy Day! ~ By Brenna

Hello! My name is Brenna from Brenna’s Bad Blog and I get the honor of guest posting on the swankiest place on the internet today! Thanks Mae :) Funny, my middle name is actually Mae.

Anyway, I’ve noticed she is a theatre person, and so am I! I’m in Aladdin right now, and the show is 1 week away. I’m only in ensemble, but I’m also younger than everyone else by 1-4 years XD

Today I’m going to give you 5 ways to spend a lazy day!
  • First off, duh, blog! It’s okay to take time off, do what you need to do, but blogging is one of my creative outlets so stopping isn’t very good for me at least.
  • Second, catching up on your reading! Whether a new book or an old favorite, it’s hard to read too much.
  • Make yourself a new playlist! Refreshing your music is something that really wakes me up. For some reason I get bored with songs really fast so shaking them up is super helpful
  • Plan to rearrange your room! Ok, I admit, when I am feeling lazy, there is no way I am going to be moving furniture around my room or make a new poster or something. But making a new Pinterest board about it sure is fun!
  • Bubble bath! For some reason, alone time soaking yourself in water is one of the most relaxing things ever. I like to use Bath and Body works products.
Lazy days are ok! Take a break when you need one. Don’t be like me and be lazy all the time because then your mom won’t buy you any more comfy clothes. -_- Like all things, do this in moderation.
Thanks again, Mae, for letting me guest post! Hopefully someday you’ll see her at my blog too.


Thanks Brenna for your awesome post!! I enjoyed reading it and I hope everyone else does too!

You know those weeks where you sit around and do nothing.

SO! I have disappeared for a while. I've had a lazy week while my sister was at camp and I've been sick as well! All week I've basically been sitting around watching dance moms and reading obscure books from the pile of free ones under my bed. 

My Aunt after all the drama, being extremely embarrassed left. So that was that. But today my other Aunt is coming and should be here in about 30 minutes. My house it buzzing with energy and my mom is going crazy with her neat freak ways. (No offence to mom) 

But life has been moving pretty slowly lately and I'm ready to pick it back up!

How are all of you guys?! Anything exciting happening!

Family Problems

I guess we all have that one family member that isn't very agreeable. The one that gets mad and leaves when they can't get there way. Well I know I do, and here's how I found out.

This week has been lovely up until now. My favorite Aunt came all the way from Tennessee to visit my family. She came Tuesday happy and excited, and left unexpectedly today, mad for some crazy reason. So let me map out our week a little here.

Day 1: They arrived that evening, at my nana's house. We went over for dinner to meet them, and then they came home with us, it was late so we went to bed.

Day 2. My siblings and I spent the whole day, making crafts, playing in water, and reading books to my adorable little cousin that is 3 years old. 

Day 3. We spent the whole day celebrating my Nana's birthday! We all went to the Children's Museum. Then we ate out at a delicious restaurant for lunch and got desert at Deweys. Then we went home and played in the sprinkler with my cousin. We had a birthday dinner and yummy coconut cake. We gave my cousin a bath, watched a Disney movie and went to sleep! 

Day 4 (today): Today we had a homeschool Field Day. So my aunt, cousin, and nana went out to spend some time together. Then they rejoined us at Field Day. After that my sister and her friend had to go shopping for camp next week, and I was going over to a friends house. 

SO apparently, my aunt got mad because we weren't spending time with her..... and she got in a fight with my mom and nana while I was gone and then left without saying goodbye, while my baby cousin cried. The thing is we spent time with her all week and my mom really needed to go to the store, so it made no sense.

When I found out, I got really upset because we were going to throw a surprise baby shower for her with my other cousins who are arriving tomorrow. I miss my little cousin and I don't know how to act tomorrow if they come back.

I really want them to come back to see my cousin, but deep down a little part of me doesn't want to see my aunt for a while.

Hey everyone! An awesome blogger by the name of Sound sent me an AWESOME guest post today! Thanks so much Sound, I enjoyed reading your post! 


Seven Weird Facts About Me
I’m sort of having a writer’s block right now, but I’ve wanted to do a guest post on another blog forever and so I decided to this, since I randomly got this idea from random stuff.
So yeah, let’s get going!!!
1.  Horror Movies are my solace:
When you read this, you’d been thinking, “What? Get real, woman” or something along the lines of that. But what I said is true for me.  Horror movies are my solace because people in horror movies have literally nothing inside their head.
Hear a weird noise? Go check it out without any light or with just a torch. Ever heard of electricity?
Or see some suspicious movement? Go investigate without anything to defend yourself.
See movement in a supposedly haunted house? Yay! Let’s go for an adventure!
I don’t think so, people. Use your brains. I think horror movies rock since I can at least reassure myself that people stupider than me exist (I mean the movie makers, who make the characters seem like escapes from a mental hospital). And I also like them because some scares are HILARIOUS! Literally. And also because such stuff interest me, but that’s a part of the minority.
2.  I collect Humour articles from newspapers.
     Weird, I know. But I love collecting all the articles from the Humour section of the newspaper as long as they are hilarious. Currently, I have 467 articles in my collection. Cool huh? (wiggles eyebrows)
3.  I hated Hunger Games.
Yeah fine. Hated is an understatement. Despised. Detested. Those are the right words for it. But soon, I wanted to know more about Katniss and Peeta. So I read Catching Fire and Mockingjay. And voila! I am a fan of Hunger Games now! (Three fingered salute)
 4.  I hate mangoes.
It’s weird but then; see the name of the post. I hate the over sweetness and the squishy-squashy texture. But nothing prevents me from drinking mango juice or eating mango ice cream with artificial flavouring! :P
 5.  I had a phobia of bird poop.
I used to have this fear that a bird would pee or poop on me when I stand outdoors. But now, I’ve overcome it. It used to be a great joke between me and my close friends ET and DJ (initials changed). It used to be scary and there was my wild imagination to help out. What if a bird peed on my lunch? What if a bird pooped on my head?
 6.  I can let a few tears slip whenever I want!
I can cry whenever I’s a life skill, I’m telling you! When you are in an uncomfortable situation, crying is the best bet! Not many scoldings because people feel sorry for you... and those don’t possess this skill, try! TRY your best to learn this...if you can’t, my condolences are with you.
 7.    My Lucky Number is 7!!!
I was born at seven o’ clock on the seventh day of the seventh month!  There are seven books in my favourite series, Harry Potter. Seven is a magical number. There are seven demigods in the quest in Heroes of Olympus. My brother and I have an age difference of seven years. This is the seventh fact I’m writing. I’m becoming fourteen this year (7X2). I have seven favourite series- Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Shiva Trilogy and Agatha Christie! How much more sevenish can a person get???
 So those are seven weird facts about me. What do you think of them? Are there any weird facts about you? Let me know through your Comments!

And don’t forget to check out my blog: (Sound’s Blog: D). Your comments, votes and follows will mean a lot to me.

And special thanks to Mae Murray for this opportunity to write a guest post on her awesome sauce blog, ‘SUPER SWANKIFIED’!!
