“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.”
I haven’t done post in a long time so here it is. If you don’t know who Michelle Phan is, you will find out shortly. She is my absolute role model and the most inspiring people I can think of. She is a YouTuber, a makeup artist and the founder of a cosmetics company called “em michelle phan”. She started to make YouTube videos on makeup and makeup transformations into different people. She started to get more and more subscribers in the last 7 years on YouTube and earned money out of it. She is known worldwide and she’s taught me so many things in the past 3 years I’ve watched in her videos. She is such a great person to begin with and she shines inside and out. I may not know her personally but her videos taught me how to live my life. She is absolutely inspiring and I love her. Michelle Phan is a dreamer and we are all proud to be one.
Here are a few links where you can find her:
And this is Michelle Phan:
“Just because yesterday I was chillin’ at my badminton tournament, doesn’t mean you can bring a girl over anytime you want, and… Did you eat all the pie? If you did, you better buy some more. I. Need. Pie,” she said as she pointed a finger to Onyx’s chest.
“Relax, Sapphire. In the cooler that’s in the trunk. Look for it yourself. And I can bring a girl anytime I want, if she’s my girlfriend,” he said as he glared at her.
“Hey, who said I was your girlfriend?” I asked with a raised eyebrow.
“Never mind, Iris. Why don’t we go back inside while Sapphire wolfs down the pie?” He said as he moved aside for me to come in.
“Iris, you like anime?” She asked politely this time.
“Yeah, I do, watch it all the time,” I replied back.
“Sword art online, DBZ or attack on Titan?” She asked.
“All and kingdom hearts,” I said with a grin. She surprised me with her interest of anime.
“Enough with anime talk, Iris, let’s go to my room and Sapphire you can come too,” he said with hesitation as he dragged me to the stairs. That’s when I saw a bat, it flew past us and landed on one of the candelabras. I shrieked and stride across the room to see it. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Onyx grin and reached for me.

Time for questions, that I have to answer. I really hope this isn’t too long to read.
1.What am I working on? Right now, I’m working on a book called “I’m different, but I’m not special.” This book actually is based on me and the way I feel and think. Just to be clear, it’s based on me not is about my life. I started this book because I really wanted to express my own feelings into a book and make it unique. Something different. The genres are fantasy, romance and thriller. I’m also trying to get inspired by things around me and put it into poems.
2. How does my work differ from others from its genre? I think that everyone writes differently because we think differently. It effects our judgement and my work is different one reason is because In my writing, it’s like a fantasy to me. I could write whatever I want, it’s my fantasy world in my writing. What’s deep deep inside of my heart, is what I put on my blog. The way I hear things, how I see things, how I feel. That’s why I think my work is different.
3. Why do I write/create what I do? I write because it exercises my vivid imagination. Everybody has a way to express their feelings, whether it’s art, music, writing, knowledge… etc. Mine is in writing. When I write, I’m not mentally in wherever I’m writing. I hope that makes sense. I’m in a fantasy of what I dream to have. I get to be who I want, what I want, where I am, what I feel. It’s my fantasy and I love it.
4. How does your writing creative process work? I write what comes to mind. Not very exciting but when it pops up in my mind, I don’t wait a second to write it down. Small details can bring out the story, I figure out the ‘big idea’ first and come up with breathtaking details to make it unique.
That’s it for my VBT, hope I didn’t bore you out with such a long post but this took an hour to write this so I hope you enjoyed reading about my writing and make sure to click on the links of the blogs I featured and Original-Dante. If you like my blog, I’m sure you’ll like theirs. That’s it for now. Good luck.
“Nice friends you have there, we should be getting along fine,” Onyx said sarcastically.
“Haha, very funny. Apparently they were ‘looking out for me’,” I said as I rolled my eyes.
“It’s fine. Want to come over now?” He asked as he wrapped an arm around my slender waist. I flicked his arm away, and shook my head.
“Not now, there’s loads of people around us when it’s after school,” I said as I looked around.
“I’ll take that as a yes,” he said as he pulled a few strands of my hair to the back of ear and took my hand to his car. He glanced around for his Mercedes and led me to the car door. We hopped into the seat and he started to drive.
“Don’t kill me while you’re at it,” I said with a chuckle.
“I promise you I will,” he said as we both laughed. The ride took about 15 minutes and I admired the wondrous clouds hovering in the sky. It was quite a sight. He pulled into the driveway and we stepped out of the car. I jumped backwards when the grand door quickly swung open and a pretty girl stood at the door. She had thick chocolate cherry hair pulled into a ponytail, with ravishing and striking sapphire blue eyes. She had a slim figure but wore a casual sweater and sweatpants. She was really pretty.
“You brought a girl over?” the girl asked with a raised eyebrow.
“Iris, this is my fraternal twin, Sapphire,” Onyx introduced.
“Hey, Sapphire Blackrose,” she said as she held out her out hand to me.
“Iris Simon,” I said as I returned her gesture.
“So sorry, Onyx. I’ll talk to you later but will you excuse me for one second?” I said to Onyx while I yanked Jen’s and Ashley’s arms away from him.
“What is wrong with you? Oh my god, that was so embarrassing,” I said with frustration once we were out of Onyx’s earshot.
“We were looking out for you.” Jen said like it was obvious.
“Okay, I’m flattered that you guys are looking out for me, I appreciate it. But please don’t do that again,” I pleaded. Then, I saw Ava and Adeline rushing to us. Ava was dragging Adeline like she didn’t want to go.
“GUESS WHAT? GUESS WHAT? OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!” Ava screamed with excitement, while Adeline was rolling her eyes.
“What?” Everybody else said to Ava.
“ADELINE GOT ASKED OUT!!!” Ava grabbed our arms and jumped and screamed with her widened eyes full of joy. I guess he made the move soon, I thought with a smirk. Ashley and Jen gasped and gawked at Adeline.
“Javier Diamondfire?” I asked with a sneer at Adeline.
“How did you kn-o-w?” Adeline asked curiously.
“Earlier, he asked me if I knew you and asked me if he should ask you out. I said sure, she’ll probably say yes,” I said.
In my mind, I knew she would’ve went online and be like a stalker and know everything about him before she said yes to the date.
“I said yes, he was pretty hot,” she said as she beamed at the thought of him. We all rolled our eyes.
“Excuse me, Iris right?” A guy said as he tapped my shoulder. I turned around and found myself looking at an unknown face at school. He had sparkling amber eyes and other sharp features. He wore a grey graphic t shirt that fit him just perfectly to show all his biceps and triceps. He was about a few inches taller than me. Cute, I guess.
“Yeah, who are you exactly?” I said. I was originally going to say
“What do you want from me?” but he was being polite so might as well go with it.
“My name is Javier Diamondfire, and I was asking if you know an alluring girl named, Adeline?” He asked politely.
“Yeah, she’s my best friend. Why’d you ask?” I asked as I raised an eyebrow.
“Do you think I should, ask her out?” He said anxiously. Okay, by now I would be bursting out laughing because he could’ve just did it. Then I realized I didn’t know him and should probably do a second take. He better be good for her. I also realized he was that clueless so I just went along with it.
“She’ll be happy to say yes,” I said with a crooked grin. I guess his sparkling amber eyes were a nice contrast to her electric blue eyes. He smiled back and said his thank you and shortly walked away.
I wanted to spend the rest of the time of break in the school to avoid the sun from being tanned. I walked down the hall and I heard voices, very familiar voices. I walked backwards to listen and realized it was Ashley’s voice.
“WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU TRY TO KISS HER THE DAY YOU GUYS MET?” Ashley shouted angrily. Then I realized she was talking to Onyx. Before he could say anything back, Jen interrupted him. “ARE YOU A STALKER?”
I took a deep breath and did a face palm as I walked towards them.
