Emily was sitting in class wishing she could disappear,Mr. Jones was talking jiberish as far as she was concerned. She has never liked math, especially when letters and numbers were involved. She could never solve for y or x or whatever it was she was trying to solve. Her mind wondered to the dance that was coming up and who she was going ask. Ethan, the senior who sat in front of her in Spanish was cute maybe she would ask him or Eric in English class. She couldn’t decide. As she was sitting there thinking about which boy to ask she noticed she wasn’t sitting in math class anymore but that she at the dance and she seemed to be looking for something.
What was she looking for? She looked around and noticed she was the only one there. Where is everybody? Maybe she was looking for them?

She stood there trying to figure out what was going on when she heard a noise. Where is the noise coming from? She didn’t have wait long when a man appeared out of nowhere.

“Who are you? Emily asked

“I’m the king of the ball.”

“The king of the ball?, I didn’t know there was such a thing.” Emily seemed surprised.

“Are you the queen?” the stranger asked

“Me? I am no queen. I just appeared here. I was sitting in math class and then all of sudden I was here.”

“Damn it I summoned the wrong girl. I will never get this magic stuff right.”

“I’m sorry.. Wait magic.. you do magic?”

“Well not very well” the man whispered.

“I love magic.” Emily screamed “Can you show me some?”


The king of the ball waved his magic wond and music started to play. The two danced and danced until ….


Emily was back in math class and Mr. Jones was giving her strange look. She went back to trying to solve for x or y or maybe it was a. She wasn’t quite sure.

It’s not all cookie cutter clear

The year is almost over and my year was not cookie cutter clear. It didn’t fit the norm of exciting events. Sure my son went from a crib to a regular bed and I got to follow my favorite band around on tour for a week, but other then that I just went to work and and made sure my bills were paid. Sounds boring, but its that what everyone else does, we go to work and make money to pay our bills. We don’t go on lavish vacations or have big life moments every day.

Don’t get me wrong I love my life and I have worked very hard to get where I am today, I just wish 2013 had been more exciting. Next year I plan to change that. Next year will be exciting and then at the end of the year I will have something wonderful to write about. Do you have any goals for next year? Tell me about them.
