The Simple Things Tag

Yes, I am fully aware that I just did a tag post. Well for one thing, my creative blogging juice is, as of now, dried up, and I haven’t learned how to replenish it yet. Also I have three tags waiting for me to acknowledge them, so I may as well. Don’t worry, I’ll write a different post hopefully soon! I do have one plan up my sleeve.

Anyway, let’s do the Simple Things Tag!

When a book has a satisfying ending.

I recently finished reading the first book of the Redwall series by Brian Jacques, and boy, oh boy, did it have an awesome ending to an epic story! It made me feel complete and content. I love it when books do that. It’s like completing a jigsaw puzzle.

My favorite satisfying book ending is probably that of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It would have had me screaming in delight had it not been five in the morning and had my sleeping sister not been mere feet away — it was SO GOOD.

Prayer.

Isn’t it incredible that the Ruler of the Universe, the one who sees and knows everything and is all-powerful, hears our prayers and listens to them like a concerned friend and a caring father? Sometimes I start randomly talking to God for this very reason — it fascinates me. Every time I talk to Him it feels like He’s actually there. Like we’re a couple good pals hanging out together at a cafe. It’s such a wonderful feeling having the Creator of the Universe as a best friend.

Friends.

I didn’t plan on having a smooth transition, but COOL, A SMOOTH TRANSITION!! πŸ˜€

My friends — young and old, near and far — mean the world to me, and so they have for years. I cannot thank them enough for caring for me and putting up with my weird and anxious ways. I’m so grateful to have them in my life.

Tart Apples.

There is a difference between a sweet apple and a tart apple. Most of the apples that I buy from the grocery store end up sweet, which isn’t bad, but I’ve never been a huge fan of sweet things (desserts being an exception). But every once in a while I’ll come across these apples. Not too sweet, not too sour, that tangy hot spot in between. They are SO flavorful and tasty; I have been known to stop whatever I’m doing to chomp them down to the core like a crazed piranha.

When my art turns out well.

If you’re an artist, then you may be familiar with those moments when you’re looking at your artwork, and come to a realization that maybe your art isn’t so horrid after all. It’s nowhere near perfect, but you know you did your best, and the results are oddly good.

While there are plenty of days when I feel like my creative work is a failure, these are the days that keep me going as a creative person — those days where I can look at my art (and writing) from a different perspective.

That was a lot of fun! There are so many other answers I could have thought up, but these were the first five that popped into my head.

Catwing! She hasn’t done anything since July. Girl, you need to get back into blogging.

Hope you enjoyed the tag! The next post will (hopefully) be another interview. It should be really fun. See ya then!

  1. Great Answers! And I sympathize with you having so many tags to keep up with. But they are so much fun! ( I have about three to publish still in draft as well πŸ˜‰ ).

  2. Oooh. Redwall is a really fun book. Though *coughs* you could say the outline is merely, they fight, they feast, they solve riddles. πŸ˜‰
    Friends are amazing. And so is prayer. And biting into a firm, juicy apple. <3
    And then the last one. Man that's my life. XDXD
    Yeah…. where has Catwing been… πŸ˜›

  3. The Redwall series was one of my favorite series EVER!!! The food descriptions made me so incredibly hungry, even though some of the food was *clearly* only for animals… XD
    AMEN to good art. Sometimes (actually, half the time) it’s complete and utter trash, and sometimes it is a masterpiece. πŸ˜›
