This is for you, Mom

This is just to say
I have taken my helmet off 
once or twice 
when on another road.
You probably should scold me.
Forgive me.
I felt so free
and so mischievous.

~Eliza J. Dennis

A poem written by me and inspired by a poem by William Carlos Williams

This is just to say
I have picked too many dandelions
that went bad right away.
You probably would have liked it better if I had left them in the ground.
Forgive me.
They were so yellow
and there were so many.

William Carlos Williams originally wrote a letter to his wife in poetry form, that inspired this poem and many others.

This is just to say
by Williams Carlos Williams
I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox
and which you were probably saving for breakfast.
Forgive me.
They were delicious
so sweet 
and so cold

To My Sister

My dearest  sister, Ani, is turning 10 on the 10th of May. This, if you hadn't noticed is going to be her golden birthday. 10-10 get it? Anyway, golden birthdays are supposed to be the best birthday ever. So I'm going to try and make it amazing for her. We are going to be camping at a lake, so there will be fishing, swimming, boating, ghost stories, and smores! I won't give anything away until after her birthday, in case she reads this post. But I'll tell you this, we are going to have a great time! My mom's dad, Morfar, and his wife, Grandma Liz are coming down to visit, too!

Hey, everybody!
I have a pretty big announcement for you today. This fall, in September, I will be doing something I have been wanting to do for a really long time. (No, I'm not going to Paris) I am going to Seattle! You may know that I was born in Seattle. I know I did this July of 2014, but that was with my family. This one, I'm going alone. Some friends have a wedding to go to in Minnesota, and I'll meet them there, then we'll fly back to Washington. I'll be there for about two weeks. While I'm there, I will be starring in a new film by my amazing friend Cirrus Levine. I can't really give you any spoilers, but I can let slip the name of the film. Dead Clock.

Happy Easter!

Even though my parents and my sister and me aren't Christian, we still celebrate Easter. But we mostly just dye eggs, hide them, and then find them. This morning, I woke up to my little sister poking me in the back and whispering, "there's something hidden in the house!" Turned out there were little dark chocolate eggs hidden all over the house. And on the coffee table, were our baskets. Inside them were huge solid gold bunny chocolates. I have never had one of these things in my life, so you can guess at how excited I was to find them. Before breakfast, me and my sister went outside and found dyed hard boiled eggs and neon plastic eggs filled with more little chocolates, jelly beans, glitter, and pendants. It was really fun. I'll see if I can post pictures of the eggs and us trying to find them. Have a happy Easter!

What I've discovered about my hair

I have found out that I have, well my hair has, this odd ability. Basically my hair is superhero, only it's not much of a hero, so I guess it's just super. Anyway, I found out if I braid all my hair in tiny braids, then leave it in for three hours, it will be altracurly. But what if I leave it in all night? Here's the result for ALL NIGHT BRAIDED SUPERCURLS,

So, if you want to make your hair look like it's from 1988, just do this, and then add a scrunchy, and some neon hair clips. And you're done! Of course, you'll have to do something with your outfit too. 
Good luck!
