random word short stories! πŸ€ͺ

hey everyone!

i was scrolling through my post idea list on my phone and then i found an ✨idea✨ wow i wonder what else is on that list? what did you say? more ideas? #shOoK

i’ll flick through my dictionary, find a random word, and write a short story inspired by it!

(please note i am bad at writing πŸ₯²)

lets gooo


random word number 1: award – noun

Butterflies flutter in my stomach. My hands shake. Deep breaths, I tell myself, One performance and I’ll be finished. One small performance. That’s all.

I hear my name being called out. The butterflies swoop and my stomach churns. I walk, trembling, to the stage, clarinet in hand. I see the blaring bright lights. I squint and my eyes search for my older sister. She’s waving madly at me, a huge grin on her face.

The butterflies calm down. I take a deep breath. I focus on my clarinet, fingering the silver keys. My eyes skim the sheet music prepared for me. I take another deep breath. I begin to play. Music flows from my clarinet. I’m lost in the beauty of the music and forget about everything else.

~ a few weeks later ~

I read the letter in disbelief. I would’ve given myself 15th place. But here it is, in black and white: ‘We are pleased to inform you that you have received 3rd place in the Youth Arts Competition. Please read the information below to find where to receive your award.


random word number 2: bitter – adjective

“I hate you.”

“You’re just bitter because my prank was wayyy better than yours.” Harriet laughed.

He rolled his eyes and smiled. “No, I’m bitter because you’re annoying.”

“I’ll take that as a compliment.”

“But, seriously, don’t you think changing the autocorrect on my phone from ‘love’ to ‘hate’ was a bit too far? My mum was so confused!” he said, grinning.

She thought for a few seconds, before replying with, “No, but your’s was horrible. Saying you baked brownies? Brown ‘e’-s?! Why would you ever bake real brownies, anyway?

“Pfft, it was a great prank. Happy April Fool’s.”



so, uh, that had some… interesting results! (the last one wasn’t too long but i like it >:) also credits to my irl bestie she once told me she did that brown e prank ahahahah)

i may do this again in the future, this was really fun!

that’s all for now, bye everyone!<3

firstly, like i said at the start, MY EXAMS HAVE FINISHED AGGHHHHHHHH

they weren’t anything really serious, but they were stressful and revision took FOREVER

secondly, i’ve just realised that i have 200 followers?! i have two- no, three questions: 1) HOW?, 2) WHEN? and 3) WHY?

this is crazy!!!!! thank you so, SO much! it really means a lot that you WILLINGLY (i repeat, WILLINGLY) follow my blog because you’re at least slightly interested in what i post. i mean, my posts are like, 95% cringiness! i bet future me is already cringing reading this! edit from future me: i am now

it’s the end of april soon, so i thought it would be a good idea to post my wrap up early, since it’s closer to the end of april than next week. (:

also, i might be active less and maybe post less for the next few months, because my end of year exams are coming up, so i have to start revising *criii* future me reading this: sorry, i meant a for the next few weeks xD

Stories & Doodles – Part 2//Collab with Maggie

Helloo, everybody!

Sorry for not posting on Friday, but I was working on this post (:

Today I’m joined with Maggie!!! A while back, we did a collab where she drew some doodles and I made profiles for them, and I drew something, and she wrote a story based on it!

We’re doing the same today, but with different drawings! πŸ™ƒ

However, this time, the digital art I made and the story Maggie writes are the next part of the story she wrote in the last collab with me (that’s so confusing haha) and the story is on Maggie’s post, the doodle profiles are in this post (: (If you want to check out part 1 of this collab, it’s linked here.)

If you want to see her post, click here!

Also, one last note sorry im not sorry mwahaha Maggie gave me some inspiration for a few of the doodles (thank you!) I just didn’t want to take all of Maggie’s wonderful ideas and pretend they were my own (:

Without further ado, let’s start! yes, PLEASE, maya you’ve been rambling on for like half this post


Doodle profiles

Names: Anthony (left, baby yoda) and Lacy (right, also a baby yoda haha)

Ages: ??? (who knows lol)

Lacy recently moved to a village populated by baby yodas, and her neighbour, Anthony is helping her settle in. In this doodle, he’s gifting her a basket of goodies he baked for her (:

Name: Rosmer (which means seahorse hahah)

Age: 2

Rosmer spends his time playing hide and seek with starfish and fish friends. He also has a passion for music and when he’s not playing with his friends, he plays bass (mwahaha fish puns are the best).

Name: Eleanor

Age: 12

Eleanor was walking home from school, when she stumbled upon some letters in her neighbour’s front yard. Being naturally curious and an aspiring detective, she took them home and is currently investigating them in secret. *tut tut* naughty Eleanor *shakes head*


And that’s it!

Thank you so much, Maggie, for doing a collab with me! It was a blast! πŸ’«πŸ‘Œ

Goodbye, everyone! I’ll see next post! (:

Let’s ignore how bad this outro is
