Bucket list

220px-Bucket_list_posterWhen I saw this movie a few years ago and again resonantly. I got to thinking. We go through life day by day wishing the time to go fast so we can get home from work or school. Have lists of so much more things we need to do that it gets to the point we wish that time over so it can be done. Wishing your day away.

I asked myself what was my dreams a few years ago and I couldn’t name one. I have lost touch of me and who I wanted to be. So I decided to make  a list of things I want to accomplish before I have no more time left to enjoy life.

So much more that I want to do with my life and I hope you do to.

I have my bucket list sorted and have started almost immediately.  I Have accomplished a few goals like learning how to dance and teach someone something they didn’t know.

Is there still unfinished business that you still want to do?

Interview with Jay (Jayden Danella Porter)

Pretty skater girl holding skateboard

Jayden

Today with pleasure I give you Jayden Danella Porter. One of the main characters of Skateboard on rails. With the book  making its way to editing and all I decided to talk to her about it.

So Jayden, to give a little background from your life .

Short summary is that you grew up in a small town. You have a little brother that turned five few months back. And you are eighteen now. Moved to live with your aunt after the accident. (not going to spoil the story yet) So that is basically how the story starts. 

I would say that sums it up.

So what is the story about?

I would say it is about accepting the unavoidable things and that the past can’t be changed. Finding answers and love when there seems to be none.

What genre is this book intended for?

Young adults genre but all ages over 16 can read it. (there are some hot scenes) {blush}

Tell me more about the story?

Okay. I am friends with the skater group with Toby Brooks being my best friend. I know girl boy friendships don’t always works but it somehow works for us. We moved about a year ago to my aunt’s and making new girl friends at a new school was hard. So the first friend I made was Toby.  At the skate park. So with ballet practice and skateboarding I

Toby

kept out of trouble. Or tried too. Keeping the two seprate Until his cousin comes to visit over summer. Trouble was glued to me like that.

Ethan was like gas that hit my fire. He had a way to make me want to kill him with my bear hands. He worked my nerves good.

Trouble follows us every where. After a bet or two maybe three. We made it more difficult for each other.

Being locked up and some other law stuff happening I start to find answers to things that was unanswered a year ago.

My brother is so sweet he looks up to me even after what happens and love grows where there seemed to be a black hole.

I get more than I bargain for in the end.

Ooo and that one unforgettable night with… oops I think to know more you just have to read it.

So when will it be released?

Ethan

Ethan

Depends on the publishers so keep fingers crossed that it is soon.

You talk about Ethan. Who is he?

Well he is the guy that makes my insides go haywire and my emotions get all mixed up. And more he shows me what life could be if I let go. Trouble with capital letters in bold my aunt said.

He is not innocent but I get to show him a few tricks that is up my sleeves with the betting and dares flying around. He is action kind of guy. He came to visit here when his best friend was off on a family vacation to France ski trip. He doesn’t talk a lot about himself come to think of it. maybe you should interview him.

I will consider that maybe get his point of view. But you are in the lime light. You got selected for a ballet company before the accident that was taking you places. You have said you still dance but not provisionally if I may ask why?

After the accident everything changes and like life each day is different so my life changed and as time went on it changed again and again. I love to dance and being on stage but things sometimes work out or not for a reason. Maybe someday.

I think there is more to life than what we see and Ethan was the one to open my eyes to possibilities in life when all seemed to be lost and there was no where I could go. And maybe someday I will be dancing again in a company but for now I am happy where I am.

Thank you for the time Jay when the book is released we could have a interview again maybe get Ethan to join in.

New Girl – True American drinking game

tumblr_m2copuClOx1qc8jh0o1_250

I have to say when I saw the first episode of New Girl the series had me. I love the whole setup.

In the episode Normal they played a drinking game that had me tickled about the rules and how to play it.  So I went a little info hunting and came up with this results. Hope for those out there who are also curious about the game that this helps.

The Castle

The Castle is made up of one bottle of liquor and many cans of beer (you decide how many based on the number of
players). The liquor is the King and sits in the middle of the Castle. The cans of beer are the Pawns and the Soldiers of the Secret Order. The Pawns are lined up in four lines radiating outward from the King. These lines of Pawns also signify the
barriers between each zone. The game ends when all of the Pawns have been removed and a player drinks from the King.

The Zones

There are four zones, each with five spaces where a player can stand. The center space in each zone is the only space where the Pawns can be taken and thus it is the closest space to the Castle. There are a total of four of these spaces. The spaces at the beginning and end of the zones are the farthest away from the Castle. Setup Before the game starts, determine how many beers total should be consumed and setup the Castle with those beers as the Pawns. Using the lines of Pawns as barriers between the zones; designate each zone, making sure to have 5 spaces in each zone as described
above.

Teams are optional.

Starting the Game

After setup is complete, players may have a shotgun contest to determine who has the first turn. If no player wisherto shotgun a beer, play rock-paper-scissors instead. To start the game, the winner of this contest yells “One, two three, JFK” at which point all other players yell “FDR”, grab a Pawn from the Castle, and retreat to any space. Gameplay Players move around the game area in a clockwise direction. The player whose turn it is always moves one space; however, the other players must “win” their moves. This player has three ways to provide the other players with a way to win their move. images

The Count: All players yell “One, two, three” and then hold a number of fingers, between one and five, against their foreheads. Anyone holding a number that no one else has chosen wins. Winners may move one spot.

Complete a Quote: The player may slowly speak a quote from history or pop culture. Any other player that is able to jump in and complete the quote in tandem wins. Winners may move two spots.

Something in Common: The player may yell out two people, places, or things. Any other player that can reply with what these two things have in common wins. Winners may move three spots.

Players must always have a beer in their hand and may not have more than three at any one time. Players may only take a Pawn from the Castle when they are in one of the four center spaces.

Winning After all Pawns have been removed, the King is vulnerable. The first player to land on one of the center spaces, finish their beer and take a swig from the King, wins the game!

Losing If you are caught without a beer or with only an empty beer, you lose. If you step in molten lava, you lose. To enter back into the game, drink one full beer and start on a space that the other players decide.

In Summary

Players take turns trying to win moves in order to navigate the tables, chairs, and cushions which are your only escape from the molten lava floor. At the center of the game is a castle made of a bottle of alcohol and many beers. As players traverse the game area, they remove beers and drink them. Once all of the beers have been removed, the first player to reach the bottle of alcohol, finish their beer, and take a swig from bottle, wins the game.

So enjoy.
