How to talk to someone (without them dying of boredom)


I'm back.

It's been eleven days since my last post. How was your Christmas? Did you have a brilliant New Year?

So you may have noticed the extremely weird and long title? You probably did. You know when you are having a conversation and then you both don't know what to say and there's a long, akward silence where you stand there for ages and then end up saying "So..." on repeat? This list of non-small talk questions will make your talking life much more interesting. Obviously you should always start with introducing yourself, ask them the usual questions and once you get to know them better, ask them some of these random questions:
  • If you were an instrument, which one would you be, and why?
  • If you could bring a fictional character to life who would it be, and why?
  • If you were an animal what would you be, where would you live, and why?
  • If you weren't human, what living thing would you be, and why?
  • If you were an item of clothing, what would it be, and why?
  • If you could meet anyone on Earth, who would it be, and why?
That should give you an interesting conversation! Ha ha- a very crazy one too!

I heard this saying recently, what do you think about it? Here it is:

You can learn more about someone in one hour of play than in a year of conversation.

What does it mean? I don't know if the word "play" means sport or playing as in "Yippee! Let's go on the slide again!" Do you know?

I am going to put a saying or quote in each of my blogs from now on, to give you something interesting to think about.

I've written a SHORT STORY!!!

So I have written a short story about a girl, and she loves music. I hope you enjoy it! EEEEK! I really enjoyed writing it. The title is based on a line the song "American Pie" by Don McLean. If you spot any mistakes, just comment below. And tell me what you think in the comments! 

THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED  By Meain Girl The traffic on the way home was terrible. I was so bored in the bus, I actually got all my homework done. When I got off the bus, I ran home, opened the door and went upstairs, taking the usual two steps at a time. I ran into my room, grabbed my guitar and started to practice the song me and Edmond wrote. Me and Edmond have been best friend’s since I moved into the neighbourhood. He lives on the street behind me, so it’s easy to keep in touch. While I was in the middle of thinking what to put in the next verse, the doorbell rang. I was hoping it was Mum or Dad so they could put on the dinner. But who was at the door but Beth. Argh- Beth. She is my annoying nex…

Question Time...

See what I did there? Very smart, using my new stamp set to start the post.
So I just found my camera and have been taking some nice pictures this evening. I'm so excited that I csn finally put my pictures on the blog, all the other pictures were from the internet. I don't think blogs are complete without a picture, even if they aren't great quality. It's just nicer to go out and take pictures with your camera than your phone, I guess.

So let's get to the topic: questions.
I have a lot of questions, most of them weird, wonderful, or just random. I asked people I know what question bugs them or what question they think about a lot. Here is one of mine:
Why did someone invent smooth peanut butter?I will post the other questions along with my next post, but for now I don't have enough interesting questions. Someone who is eight asked me why his maths book is different to the maths book from the year ahead of him. What?!?
If any of you were wondering about the new sch…

Hello, People of this World!

I've decided to start a blog. This blog.
Why, might you ask?
I moved from a really big and busy city to this tiny island which has way less than the population of my whole school where I used to live. I moved two months ago and I felt sort of lonely, like no one is really noticing me even though no one is here(a few people, of course) . Every where I look, I see the sea. It's like my only friend- apart from my dog SĂ­ofra of course.
I feel like if I write this, maybe somebody in the world will read it and know how I feel, or at least some of you guys can be my friends.
That's why I've decided to give blogging a go- so I have someone who can relate to what I say, even if we live on different sides of the world. And I can be myself here, not having to be cool, or stylish, or speak a certain language and I won't lose friends or look stupid. (hopefully!)
That's why I'm going to stay anonymous.
So I can be me and be freeeee!!
