Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016 and Happy New Years!

Can you believe tomorrow it will be 2016? Yep today is New Years Eve. I'm pretty exited. It means I'm halfway done with the school year, spring is coming up, winter break is ending and a bunch of other things. I got back from my grandmothers at like 12;00 pm yesterday. So for once I'm actually home on new years. With is kind of new for me.  I'm going to go to my aunts house and see my cousins.

1. Do better quality blog posts- A lot of times I just do a post fast and it not really good quality and I want to stop that

2. Get different types of photos- A lot of times I just do nature pics and I want to do more people and have a variety of photos. 

3. Get 30 followers on my blog- right now I have 27 and to get 30 I just need 3 more. Easy right?

4. Try to get better at designing, coding, and editing- I want to try to learn how to code a little bit for my blog and also get better at editing pictures.  Any tips?

3. I really like to take pictures. I think I'm best at nature shots and now my mom is telling me I have to do some people. 
4. I would not say I am girly girl or a tomboy. Because I care about how I look and stuff like that but I don't like makeup or light pink.
5. My top five favorite colors and red, black, hot pink, blue, and purple. Yes I know I was saying I am not a girly girl and then I say one of my favorite colors are pink but this is hot pink people. Light pink and hot pink are very different.

Daily December- 18

Today's Daily December prompt is a winter or Christmas six word story. Here is mine.

                                            The time is here to sing                                                        

Don't you agree? This season of parties and present and joy just wants to make me sing or laugh out loud. Today was my winter party at school and it was really fun. We got snow cones, popcorn, cookies, and we got to dance. They were playing music and after all of the activities we danced and sang are hearts out. It was fun and I'm pretty sure everyone else had fun to. Well except for the custodians who are going to have to clean up our mess.  
                  How was your day?

Hunger Games-Mocking jay Part 2: Movie Review

Saturday I did something that I had been wanting to do for a long time: See The new Hunger Games Movie. When I found out that I could I was like

Ya that me mines the red hair and green dress. The movie didn't let me down either I really liked it.

Summery without any spoilers: After Katniss agrees to be the mocking jay. She has a lot on her hands. She treys to bring peeta back to his normal state, battle the capital, and go her own way. In her star quad she travels across the torn capital but her squad keeps getting smaller and smaller.  Will she make it to the capital and kill snow?

So how how did you like my little summery like thing? Very suspenseful right?

This movie is the last in the Hunger Games Trilogy. With is kind of sad since I read all the books and loved them. The movie was sad because there are so many emotions going around. I think that it is better than mocking jay part 2 but the second movie is still my favorite of the four movies.  If you see it or or have already saw don't hesitate to drop a comment and we can talk.

Holidays and 4 top favorite things about cristmas

I'm sick again. Fun Right! Ya not really. I seem to also ways be getting sick. First at camp and now. I have his horrible feeling that I a going to sick at Christmas time but I probably shouldn't be pushing my luck by saying it. There is something I can be happy about thought. Friday will be the last day until winter break! I'm super exited about that. I get 2 weeks of to do whatever I want and to see my grandparents. OK and now what you have all been waiting for (not really) My favorite favorite things about Christmas. Also these are not in order or anything.
