Journals of an Awkward Teenager
Entry #1: Let the Journey Begin!
Hey guys! How are you? How have things been? Have you had anything awesome happen to you since I was last TRULY on? Has something been getting you down? Are there idiots out there who deserve a punch in the gut for some stupid thing they've done to you? Let me know! I'm curious!
Anyway, let me first get a few things out of the way. First, Happy New Years to everyone out there! I'm sorry that I'm so late! Second, Happy National Hugging Day and Squirrel Appreciation Day! Betcha didn't know that the 21st of January was such a neat holiday, hmm?
Now that I've somewhat gotten caught up, let's get down to business. As some of you may know, I've been writing a story called "School Sucks!". However, as you some of you may also know, I haven't updated it in FOREVER, and for that, I'm terribly sorry OTL Thankfully, though, the desire to write has made itself known. For the past few weeks, I have had the strangest urges to just write. Sadly though, my mind would start to draw a blank every time I started to write.
This brings me to the main reason I wrote this journal. I have a TON of story ideas that I've come up with, including when and where they take place, and I REALLY want to write them down. But, I'm at a bit of a standstill: I can't decide which to do.
So, I have compiled these ideas together, along with a basic summary of each, and I was hoping that maybe some of my watchers could help me decide which to focus on. I actually plan on putting a poll up momentarily for this. I have a few more, but these are the most developed ones (save for one that I didn't mention for certain reasons). I first ask that no one use these ideas without my permission, as I've been working on them for a very long time. If there are any similarities between the characters, settings, or stories that I have listed below with other pieces of literature or media , then I can assure you that they are purely coincidental. Anywhosers, here they are!
> The Misadventures of Bed-Kun and Lovi-San
"The Misadventures of Bed-Kun and Lovi-San" is a comedy with a bit of a supernatural twist that involves a bed-turned-human and a social outcast.
What would you do if you woke up to find some strange man where your bed should have been?
Lucianna Lovina Giovanni is certainly not the most popular girl in school, despite the fact that she's a transfer student from Italy. In fact, in the entire 3 years she's been going to Fairbarrow High, the only positive attention she got was on the first day she arrived there
When she 'accidentally' punched that one guy in the jaw
Not the best way to start off at a new school, huh?
Well, anyway, she'd been living in Fairbarrow for a little over three years now, and a few things have remained the same:
She still has only two friends (and they're dating so she's often the third-wheel), all of her teachers still hate her, and, last but not least, her mom and dad's families are still fighting.
Anyway, this is Lovi's last year in high school, and she wants something, anything to happen that will make this year outshine the rest. So, deciding to cliche it up a bit, she makes a wish on a shooting star.
The next morning, she waddles into her room to find out that her bed's missing, and, in its place is a... man?? WHAT?!
> Schools Sucks! New and Improved!
"School Sucks! New and Improved!" is a comedic slice of life story that many of my watchers are already somewhat acquainted with. It's your basic high school story that focuses on a group of friends that are trying to deal with the ups and downs of high school, all the while developing their special talents at an elite private academy.
But, now there's a twist.
Instead of all the characters that everyone knows, like Becka Carters and Jack Cunningham, we now have Benjamin Carters and Jackie Cunningham!
That's right, you guessed it!
Everyone's the opposite gender!
Anyway, we have the basic high school setting with a few little twists added in, liiikkkee...
+ There's a rival academy?? Oh noes! And, what's this I hear? One of the main characters starts to fall for the lead actor at the other school?? No Way!
+ A secret passageway in the library? C'mon! That's way too cliche! That can't be true... right?
+ The annual carnival for the school is coming up, and you know what that means!: Kissing Booth! Ooh la la!
> I Love (to Hate) You
"I Love (to Hate) You" is a romantic comedy that centers around a hard-working secretary and a smug and narcissistic model.
What if you suddenly started falling for someone you've hated since the day you met?
Alexandra hates Emmerson with all her heart. She finds him disgusting and to be a complete and utter playboy. All he does is piss her off with his perverted flirting and narcissistically smug attitude. Besides, there's a really cute guy at the office that she'd rather spend her time with. So, why on earth does she suddenly start dreaming about Emmerson?? Why does she suddenly start finding him to be "not that bad"? And since when did Emmerson start saying sorry?!
He's the man that she loves to hate, but now he's starting to become the man that she hates to love...
So, what do you all think? Any of 'em sound interesting? If so, leave a comment below!
Alrighty dearies, it's time for me to scram, as I have some work to do.
Hasta La Pasta~!
Oh, there's one last thing I forgot to mention!
I making up a few characters for something, and I’m kinda stuck on this idea for one of them. However, I can’t seem to find the actual medical term I’m looking for. My (idiotic) idea is that the female character has these little… ‘attacks’ because of a certain ‘trigger’. For example, if she hears a certain song or is put in a certain situation, she’ll start hyperventilating and freaking out, and she’ll eventually just shut down out of fear. I’m not sure if that’s a panic disorder or just a severe case of phobia, but I’ve made myself almost die from curiosity trying to figure it out. I’ve looked all over Google and other sites, but I just can’t find what I’m looking for. I was thinking of having the female try to prove that even though she has these frequent ‘attacks’ that disrupt her everyday life, she can still manage just fine on her own.
There’s also one other reason as to why I decided to put this question on tumblr. Would I be insulting those who do have ‘attacks’ like the ones I am thinking of? I don’t want to do that at all, as that’s just crossing the line for me. I really hope that I didn’t offend anyone with this question.
Does anyone have any good twin names? ‘Cause I just can’t seem to find the right names for them. One is a boy and one is a girl. They’re both dark brunettes (almost black) with dark blue eyes and glasses, and they’re Irish-Italian, with the mother being Irish and the father being Italian.
