Annoyingly OptimisticMandy didn't mind have a slightly younger sister. For the most part, Melissa was cool. She was fierce and upbeat, a take no prisoners kind of girl. Sure she never bothered to bust Thadeous and Thor when they were building their annoying creations and never getting in trouble for it, but that was excusable. Busting Thaddeous and Thor was her job, being the much older sister.Annoyingly Optimistic by CarolinesEcho
What Mandy didn't like however, was Melissa's annoyingly optimistic friend Milo. Milo Murphy. The descendant of the guy who invented Murphy's Law. Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
And boy did it ever. Milo was a walking Jinx. Safe's falling all around him, anvils, a Llama stampede...
Though she was pretty sure the stampede was caused by Candace's brothers. Something about Phineas and Ferb starting a Llama Farm and the Llamas escaping for one reason or another. Though how the Llamas had ended up in her neighborhood, she had no idea.
Whatever. It was just another day in her so called life. The doorbel

"Well, what about this one?" The saleswoman asks, selecting another charm from the rack and slipping it onto the necklace. "It says 'be beautiful on the inside, not just the outside.'" She casts a disapproving gaze at the necklace around my neck. "It'd be better than that cheap compass necklace you're wearing."
I refrain from rolling my eyes. It's the same thing everyday; she sees me come in, wearing the compass necklace, and tries way to hard to try to sell me one of HER necklaces and charms. "It's better than that cheap piece of costume jewelry anyway," she continues. She fingers my necklace and asks if it's part of a steampunk cosplay.
I politely tell her no, that I'm not into steampunk. She never even bothers to ask why I wear the necklace at all. If she ever did, I'd tell her:
"I wear this necklace because it was bought for fifteen dollars at a fandom convention I went to with my girlfriend. Because we spent time talking to the vendor. Because the vendor thought we were sisters. B
Self Discovery: Chapter 24Over the next several days, Hannah barely let me out of her sight. She came over everyday during Christmas vacation to hang out. If my parents were there, she was polite and generous, never laying a hand on me for anything.Self Discovery: Chapter 24 by CarolinesEcho
But if my parents weren't there? Well...
"Come here you." Hannah took me by the hand, gently pulling me away from the stove and wrapping her arms around me from behind.
"Babe, I have to finish cooking breakfast."
"Yes, but I want to kiss my girlfriend now." She placed a searing kiss to my lips that sent my mind reeling.
"Ha-Hannah?" She was now planting little kisses up and down my neck, stopping to nibble on my ear. "I...have...to..." my eyes slipped closed for a moment, allowing her to gently lick my neck. I sighed in contentment.
"You have to what?" She purred, her hand slowly running down the inside of my thigh.
Did I mention we hadn't had sex yet? Mostly because she still hadn't told Patricia we were dating, so I had nixed the whole having sex thing until she a
How to Celebrate Valentine's Day if You're SingleValentine's Day is fast approaching and for many people, that means cards, candy, hearts, chocolate, dates and flowers. But what about those of us who are single? Do we just sit back and watch the most romantic day of the year unfold in front of us without celebrating?How to Celebrate Valentine's Day if You're Single by CarolinesEcho
Not at all. Single women can celebrate too. So here are some ideas on how to celebrate Valentine's Day if you're single.
Step 1: Find a single friend and hang out with them for the day. You can spend the day catching up, watching cheesy chick flicks or shopping.
Step 2: Pamper yourself. Have a spa day, or if you're not in the mood for it (or don't have the budget), then opt for a mani-pedi. Either way, make sure to pamper yourself, because you deserve it.
Step 3: Watch chick flicks. They can be cheesy, dramatic or funny. Or, for something different, watch an anti-Valentine's Day movie. Find a good action, adventure, horror, thriller movie. Just because it's Valentine's Day doesn't mean you have to watch romantic movies.
The Dying ArtistI was a right brainer once. Art. Music. Writing. Poetry and Photography. They were my heart and soul. They gave me breath and fueled my passion for creativity.The Dying Artist by CarolinesEcho
But then, reality sank in. Jobs. A mortgage. Two kids and me being a single Mom. The bills won't pay themselves. So after a lot of soul searching, I gave it all up:
Art supplies were stuffed into craft boxes and shoved under the bed. The guitars, ukuleles and piano were all sold in an effort to provide a modest income while I began job searching. Writing and poetry were pushed to the back of my mind, all story ideas and poetic metaphor squirreled away for when I had the time to visit them again.
Time. What a bunch of bullshit. It's a commodity many of us have, but few of us revere until we're older and fail to realize how precious it really is.
I eventually found an office job. One that specializes in tracking processes, procedures and other corporate bullshit.
It was okay at first; I'd go home at the end of the day, pull out my
Hi there! I'm CarolinesEcho and this is my first time using DeviantART.
While I don't consider myself an artist by any means (given the fact that I can't draw), I do enjoy writing and photography. Although I don't do photography as much.
At this point, photography is definitely a hobby for me and while writing is too (especially writing fanfiction), I would love to get at least one piece of writing published in my life, just so I can say I did it if nothing else.
What you will get from me at this point is most likely original stories/poems, some fanfics (which may or may not have already been uploaded to my fanfiction.net account) and on occasion some photos, if I think they're any good. And on very rare occasions, some digital art as well. It may not be very good, but I do like fooling around with Microsoft paint and powerpoint every once in a while.
So onward and upward I guess.
