Lady in Red Update :)

 Let me try my hand at updating this story and maybe ending it.
  I had to stay calm, in situations like this panic was a nuisance. The room was quite large with no openings. It seemed like I was somewhere underground. I scanned the room for an escape. There was an iron door to the right of my bed. I wasn't wearing the clothes I came in with, I was wearing a hospital dress which to my surprise was stained with blood. Whatever was going on here I definitely was not the first victim.

"There's nothing to worry about sweetie. If you don't fight you might live, but that might be hard. We aren't bad people , we're just doing our jobs and you happened to be in the wrong place at the right time.........well the right time for me. Your appearance was quite convenient." "You see ... the people I work for want you dead. not because they don't like you but because you're useless to them alive. They need your body for ....lets call it research. it's revolutionary , life changing , you should think of yourself as a hero. See like I said nothing to worry about"

  Her smile was unnerving if not for the gag on my mouth I would've spat in her face, no thrown up. It'll be satisfying to see her frown. My eyes followed her movement as she injected something into the IV.  "sweet dreams" she said. The room went blurry and sure enough my eyes drooped till I fell asleep.

 "Debra" I could hear a voice calling me. I was still in the room but it was pitch black. I heard the voice again. My mouth gag seemed to have disappeared maybe the smiling lady's heart wasn't made of stone after all. 

"Who's that?"  

"There's a pin by your hand pick it up and use it to undo the locks."  

"I don't understand, where are you?" The room seemed empty.

"Just do it."

I felt around and sure enough there was a pin by my fingers. " How do I do this?" I said wrapping my hand around it.

"Good Morning, how was your night?" I opened my eyes to the lady removing my gag. Julie.......... I guess that  was her name , there was a pin on her dress with the name on it. I was confused, maybe it was Julie talking to me at night.

"How do I do it?" I asked.

"Do what?"

"Undo the locks, so I can get out" I said hoping she would tell me. She laughed , her laughter was even more annoying than her smile. " Looks like I gave you a little too much last night" I didn't believe her,  last night had to be real, I could feel the pin in my hand.


I'll stop here for now, till I get more ideas. As always......
                                                                                                                                                 Love T

Summer is almost over!!!! (sobs)

My favorite Game of Thrones character
 I can't believe I have only a few weeks till the end of summer. I'm not done having fun, waking up at 12 and doing absolutely nothing. I'm not looking forward to early mornings, homework and exams. I remember writing a list of things I wanted to do this summer, so I'll write on how that's going.

Learning how to drive:
 There are so many ways to describe how much I hate  boring the drivers handbook is,but i'm practically done reading it. I'll be taking the test next week.... I'm not expecting to pass.

Learn more French: I've been using the French CD and it's helped a little , I can read more than before but I still can't speak much. I need someone to practice with I guess :/

Be more Healthy:  ....................ummmmm well ..hmmm.. if you call staying at home almost 24/7 healthy then  I think I've achieved that goal :p.

That's about it , boring summer but I don't want it to end.

In other news, I recently got in on the Game of Thrones show and its extremely addictive, also partly to blame for my procrastination. I just started season 2 , hopefully I finish it before school starts.
                                                                                                                                                   Love T

This Weeks Update :)

       Hey guys! I hope you had a good week, I spent mine doing absolutely nothing but it was good, did anyone watch the opening show of the Olympics (am I the only one that had no clue what Paul McCartney was saying?), the show was good but I was expecting there to be a a single fire in the end. Anyways I'm going to continue the Lady in Red story today. Please note that I don't have the full story in my head so if it takes an unexpected turn then ...oh well! : p

                                                                                                                  Love T

Lady In Red

 There was a bus waiting  around the corner. I quickened my steps in an attempt to catch it but my heels kept sinking into the mud. Tired and frustrated with the sun beating down my back I sank to the ground.

"Excuse me Miss"

I looked up to see a smiling lady in red. I frowned wondering how someone could smile in 43 degrees.

"Are you lost?"

"Ummm.....yea, I..I" I didn't realize how thirsty I had been , I could barely get words out of my mouth.

"You look thirsty, come let me get you something to drink. My house is in that direction." She pointed towards something in the distance that my eyes couldn't make out. I didn't know whether or not I could trust this woman but I wasn't sure when the next bus would arrive and I could really use a glass of water.

  It was about a five minute walk to the house. If it could be called a house. It was bigger than any home I'd ever seen and it looked old, like hundreds of years old. The yard was overgrown and unkempt and the paint was peeling off. The inside was pristine in comparison. I sat awkwardly on the edge of a chaise as she brought in a pitcher and a glass.

"Thanks" I mumbled, wondering how soon I could leave without being rude.

"So what brings you to Wicker Hills?"

I frowned again, the woman seemed to have a permanent smile on her face and I wasn't in the mood for small talk.

"I was on my way to a friend's house and got lost."

"Hmm I see, well your welcome to stay as long as you wish. We don't get a lot of visitors here."

"Oh ok , thanks actually..." My words trailed off into a huge yawn. I was suddenly very sleepy. Maybe staying a little longer wouldn't be so bad I thought reclining into the chaise and resting my head on a pillow. I was acutely aware of the lady's movements behind me but my eyes were closing and I couldn't be bothered.

"She's asleep" Julie whispered into the phone.

"How long will she be gone for?"

" At least four hours."

"Good, we have time."

Parlez-vous Francais?


Oui Oui! :P
      Am I the only one who wants to learn a new language? I can't be. So why is it so hard to do. I purchased a French box set with a friend called Living Language French. Unfortunately when we graduated I got the CD's and she got ....... well the whole thing ( I have it on my computer) . I've taken French courses through most of high school but I'm just recently getting interested in it. Plus, I have to learn this language my degree requires me to have proficiency in a language and French seems to be the easiest to pick up at the moment.
 Here's what I've been doing:
 The box set is divided into 3 various difficulty levels with three CD's per level.
So far I've gotten to the second CD of the first difficulty level. I don't know if it's working and I need help.
 Does anyone know the right way to use these CD's? I would love to learn a little before the summer ends and school starts. By the way it's in my master plan to be multi....yes not 'bi' but multi lingual so it'd be nice to get French out of the way. Please (pretty please) give me suggestions on the best way to tackle this.

Heres the link to the box set:

Sitting on a Goldmine

               Hey! so I've been sitting here writing these posts and wondering who actually reads them, and how to get more views. Well, a quick search led me to google+ and I don't know why I didn't figure it out before. I got more page views today than I get in a week, and even that is just from random sharing of old posts. Although I still don't have that many views but I'm working on my first blog goal..... a comment. Honestly a comment will let me know my efforts aren't in vain.
                                                                                                                                     Love T

Success and Goals

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala  ( Economist, Nigerian Finance Minister , role model)
    I just read an interesting article about young African entrepreneurs that recently made the Forbe's list. It's inspiring to see people follow their dreams and achieve their goals. That's what I hope to do, if only I can figure exactly what those dreams are. Meanwhile, I can only do the best I can in terms of school and getting to know people. It seems like everyone wants to be on top and obviously that can't be the case, so how do you know your destiny?
Here's a link to the article

                                                                                           Love T

Apologies and a Poem

Hey there, I haven't posted in a while because I've been lazy. All my summer resolutions have been completely forgotten. Well cant live in the past and I'm feeling poetic so...:
I keep thinking
Of the things I want to do
I keep dreaming of being successful 
but I'm stuck in a bubble.

There's a wall that I can't get over
Its too high too climb and stretches infinitely in both directions
It could be the fear of failure
or the temptation of laziness
and my aspirations are never realized
If I keep pushing
searching for cracks and weaknesses 
the wall might come crumbling.

Well... that summarizes why I haven't posted. Also, this is the first poem I've ever posted online *hope its good* See you soon..(If I ever get past the wall)
                                                                                                                                  Love T.

Selective Hearing

                                                        Me Against the Mall
      So, I just learned a big lesson today. Sometimes you really shouldn't listen to what other people have to say because it'll keep you from getting things done in life. A friend and I decided to spend Friday evening shopping. We were both shopping for a dress or some sort of outfit for an event we had coming up. I was really excited, anticipating the thrill of trying on dresses and looking fabulous in everything (.....sure).
    Well, as you can tell things didn't go so well. We started off at H&M , yea there were some nice things there but not really what I was looking for. I was actually looking for a dress I had seen early spring in the same store but couldn't find it. We searched through different stores Express, Sears, Rickis, .... I can't even remember the names. Long story short I didn't find anything. Meanwhile,  my friend was in the same predicament she had only gotten a dress but not for the event.
In my dreams .... *sigh*
  Tired, exhausted, frustrated and slightly annoyed we arrived at a store that looked promising. My hopes were rising , I tried on a couple till I got to this one dress. It was black with some other colors... I can't really describe it but I loved it. It fit like a glove and then I showed my friend and she was like "noooo it's too short and tight and ......"
-____-  I ended up not getting anything from the mall and wasted the evening , plus I will go back and get the dress. I eventually found the Spring dress at H&M but I needed a second opinion and le friend was in a different store. On the plus side the mall was nice and there were some cute guys there...  ^_^
                                                                                                                                Love T.

What to call this post? :)

   Hi!, well my first post got 20 and I think 14 of them were mine (if not all) till i realized how to stop Google from counting my own page views. I'm so close to the end of school , I'm so excited and I can't wait to start my summer. I plan on going shopping and taking up French again. Here's a list things I plan to do this summer:

*Start learning how to drive (not looking forward to this I'm quite happy being driven around or taking a bus)
*Learn more French
*Be more healthy
................................................ Je ne sais pas ( I think that's how its written but i may be wrong)
hmmm I think my next post will be things I want to buy this summer to change my wardrobe. It turns out I have more winter than summer clothes.
                                                                                                                              Love T

C'est moi <3 <3
     Hi, everyone! My name is Tochi and this is my blog. I have no clue what I'll post here but i'll try to keep it interesting and post regularly( Tomi I hope you're happy). I started a tumblr Jan 1st as part of my New Years resolution but this isn't a new years resolution so maybe it'll last longer ...maybe. This blog will be random I might use as way to get back to writing. I used to write a lot and my works weren't bad at all but this past year I haven't written anything excluding the poem I wrote for an English project. It's sad considering how much I wanted to be a writer when I was younger. Also, I might post pictures of my life, places I go to and the things I do
(this might encourage to make my life more interesting too) , but hopefully I don't neglect it like I did to my tumblr. Anyone who's reading this blog I hope you enjoy it and come back, and please feel free to send me a message.
                                                                                                                                              Love Tochi
