The Lost Temple of Zios

Hi! This is a story about the lost Temple of Zios I invented.

When Graham became an alpha, he was given a land, like the others. He got a nice one, witha river and lots of trees. He wanted it to be a really fun land, and he started making it fun. He decided he should make a Place where the all the wisdom of Jamaa could be, so he made a temple-like building and called it the Chamber of knowdlege.
On the first floor, he put books, herbs, candles, little crafts made by him... He made a trapdoor, and beneath it lie all the secrets of Jamaa´s knowdlege and wisdom. One day somebody will find the key to open it, and find out all the secrets.
The second floor was mainly used for memorials: A Zios Sculpture, spears and armor used in the great phantom war, statues of alphas, Zios´s paw made carpet, a dissectonated phantom and the ancient mysterious tapestry with Mira and the phantoms.
And in the top floor, he put up a shop where he could sell useful items: Statues of the alphas, a great Zios fountain, some chests for jammers to lock up their most appreciated possesions, a wishing well to make dreams come true, an Orb to see the future that only some jammers know how to use, a bronze giraffe statue in honour of Edmund, the giraffe alpha, a magic mirrow to help take desicions, some firefly lamps, a telescope to study space and the phantoms, That shop is also an observatory, from where you can see the stars.
Outside he made a Temple of Trivia game, and a mysterious room in the roots of a great ancient tree. But he also made a statue of himself.

But it didn´t stand there for long. After Zios disappeared, Graham decided to change it by a memorial statue in honor of the Sky Father. But the phantoms broke it and settled inside it, and when you sleep next to it they come out, thinking you are unaware of them, and start spreading chaos and dispair.
So I hope you enjoyed that short story!

Stories and Hi

Sorry, I haven't posted in JWT in a while, I thought that I was un-authored after I heard that JWT was closing, so I saw the e-mail and I'm back again, I still have some drafts but I'm really not done yet, so I'll tell stories made by some Jammers, and me.

Oh, this is me by the way;

[I saw this on Snowyclaw's blog, and yes, I did ask permission.]

The Forgotten Story
(Credits to JazztheKat)
Nobody remembered what had really happened after Zios and Mira disappeared in thin air. It was as if they never existed in this world...it was as if nothing terrible had happened against the two gods and the shamans. It was as if those tales of the mighty gods and shamans were all fake. Everything seemed... Forgotten. Or was it?
Sir Gilbert and his close brother like friend Greely were standing side by side as they were gazing up at the magnificent statue of their god... Zios. The statue was taking over half a year but it was worth it. There were jades, emeralds, diamonds and other precious stones stuck to the statue that was made with great detail. The statue itself was made of gold! The other shamans were off to work while these two were having a small break from their every day work and admired and relaxed the beautiful statue. Sir Gilbert was getting used to Greely, the wolf himself did indeed helped him defeat the phantoms when everything seemed it was about to end. The two got used to calling each other 'brother'. Gilbert smiled as he spoke, "The Statue is almost done, my brother. Soon enough the town will feast and have a big ceremony to honor Zios himself!" Greely didn't smile but you could tell that he was happy because from how happy his voice sound, "I am happy for the idea of the ceremony. It's strange how Mira and Zios never seem to visit us that much now...do you think I'm doing something wrong?" Gilbert smirked as he elbowed his best friend in the ribs playfully, "Don't worry. You're the shaman of the year! Zios chooses you for a reason!" Greely smiled sadly back at him friend...ever since he had joined the shamans it seemed like the gods had favorite him out of them all. He was worried about what the tiger would think...this was his fith year being the top shaman and Gilbert used to be the one who was top shaman before he came! But Sir Gilbert only seemed to smile as his white deadly teeth glisten like pearls. 
"The Statue is now...completed!" Peck announced as trumpets played their melody. The streets were filled with colorful candles and there were flowers and paper decorations in every corner of the land of Jamma. Everyone was wearing their best clothes and the scent of fresh food filled the summer sky. There was music, dancing, laughter, singing, clapping, stomping and any other sound you could think of going at once! The Shamans were enjoying themselves until they noticed it was about time for them to meet the two gods in the small statue of their goddess, Mira. It was another time for the Gods to choose who the next top Shaman was...and Greely noticed how his close friend Gilbert was acting so impatient. The shamans entered the small temple that held the statue of their goddess and they were greeted by an annoyed god and a quiet goddess. "You're late." Zios muttered as he stood before the shamans. The shamans frowned, their god didn't looked pleased even though they were having a ceremony just for him and his wife! They even spent over a year of their lives to build his own statue! The shamans were quiet as stone as Zios continued, "You fools spend over a year for a party! How foolish! I have created you all to make this world a safe and protected place! And look have what you done...spending one year of your precious time...FOR A STUPID PARTY?!" Everyone flinched from his words. Mira was frowning towards her husband from his actions but said nothing. Zios sigh as he walked towards Greely, "Greely, I have chosen you for a reason, my boy. You have disappointed me. As top shaman you should know your responsibilities! What have you been thinking?! My wife and I have chosen you from how smart you were! You should be ashamed of yourself! I should have ordered Gilbert to have you killed back in the temples when he had first meet you..."Greely stood his ground as the god slowly walked back towards hi wife. The god continued to say terrible things about the wolf shaman and even pushed him to the ground once or twice to humiliate him from his failures! He didn't say a word for he knew if he spoke he would get in more trouble. "All of you disappointed me. You all are an example of selfish animals that only think about partyin-!" "Stop!" Everyone turned and faced Gilbert. The tiger had enough of being lectured by the god and yowled, "If you hadn't noticed, my lord, we have been working our tails off to protect this city! We were making the statue to honor of you creating us all! We were having a feast and party to celebrate after all our hard work and to celebrate you two! And this is how to repay us?! Spitting at us and telling my brother that I should have KILLED him?! I believe we should have just never celebrated for you...you rude...I can't even say the words! You are not even a god to me now!" Zios immediately threw the tiger away from him, making Gilbert crash and fall to the floor emotionless. Even though Zios was known to be all creation...he was not the nicest. He was strong and he was seen cold heart ed in the outside just to protect the animals he cared for...it was for his own people's good. He needed to look strong in the outside so his enemies would not attack his people that easily! Problem was, through this technique the god himself was growing colder and colder and even his kind wife couldn't even stop him from growing powerful and meaner. Sir Gilbert began to fight Zios...a god! Zios was impressed by how strong the tiger became from just from a little cub. Even the god had trouble fighting off the half god tiger. All the shamans were half gods but Sir Gilbert seemed the strongest! There were clashes of blades and claws and bits of blood fell to the ground. There were screams and shouts and Zira tried to stop the two but got knocked out herself from one of the god's big heavy wings. The other shamans tried to stop Gilbert from how much he was hurting the god...but it was no use for the tiger was so concentrated to much to their horror...on killing the god! After the long battle the temple itself was crashed into pieces with the god and half god's attack moves. And soon enough the god was killed, the ceremony came to a canceled and to Mira's horror Gilbert ordered the animals to destroy the statue. Mira was silent for the whole entire time as she watched the animals knock down the statue. Several of the jewels flew off to other worlds the animals had not yet discovered and those stones are know known as today the spirit stones which would bring new animals if an animal finds them. All the animals were sad and depressed from their god's death and many hated Gilbert.Mira was still silent and didn't visit the animals that much from then but did not bring in any revenge but cried tears of sadness and hatred. These tears created the creatures that we now know as phantoms today. Before the day of chaos ended Greely turned to look at her close friend and asked quietly, "Why have you killed Zios? He was our god!" Gilbert only answered him plainly, "You are a loyal friend, Greely. You care and respect all animals of Jamma. And I believe you are not worth treated terribly like how Zios treated you in the temple. We don't deserve a god who has a cold heart." "But he...!" "Cosmo had a vision. He told me that he saw Zios destroying all of us...he killed you painfully the most. If I had not killed Zios you would sooner or later be dead and same for the other animals. It was for our own good. I know I have done one of the most terrible things in history and really, I do not care if I am seen as a bad animal...for I knew I did it for the animals that I care and love. And also," The tiger turned to face the wolf and smiled sadly, "You are my close friend, Greely. And I do not want you to be treated that way and get killed."

The End

The next one is a story that I made, it was for an RP blog.
Sunrisen's Life

It was a lovely day at Jamaa, the most famous, fiercest and brave family had celebrated, The Gekkō Family, they were very nice and very rich, they celebrated with the rich and poor, they help the needy, and gave almost half of the whole Jamaa to other kingdoms, they let others live in there huge castle..

One Day, the lovely family's queen, Kerma, was going to have a baby! Oh what a wish come true, it was Sunrisen! In the spirit world, Sunrisen was preparing, "Oh, I don't know, what if I'll be tortured and no one will like me?" Sunrisen asked to her beast friend, Sunseat, "It'll be o.k., believe on what you believe in and it will be...." Just before she could finish her sentence, Sunrisen was born! "Oh what a beautiful baby she is!" Said Queen Kerma, "We will name her Sunrisen, for she is born in the Sunrise! We will celebrate!" Said King Pearl.

That night, five fairies were invited, well, the other couldn't find her invitation because the invitation flew out the window when the mailman delivered it. The four fairies went to the castle and left the other one alone, there names were Thern, Ferl, Erla, and Blu, the one left out was Jewel. Sunrisen was blessed with Beauty, Strength and Bravery, just before Blu could bless her, Jewel went inside and said "How dare thee not letting me to join thy celebration! For a punishment, this very castle shall be burned by a dragon on her eighteenth birthday! Everyone will be asleep and the dragon will burn the place!" and disappeared quickly. "My king and queen," Said Blu, "I cannot reverse the spell, but I may be able to bless her not to be killed." and the King and Queen stopped worrying. They sent nights to kill all the dragons they saw.

Sunrisen was beautiful, strong, and brave, she was adored by many people. She was nice to everyone!

On her eighteenth birthday..
"There's fire! Everyone wake up!" I said, "Mama! Papa! Please wake up!" I screamed to my parents, I had to go out, outside a dragon was waiting. I got a sword and shield and went outside, "Dragon! I will slay thee! I shall not let ye get away! I will seek revenge for burning my home, and my pure treasure! I will slay you for killing my Family!" I jumped on it's back and put my sword on it's neck, it screeched a deafening "Argh!" and went down down down... Until..


"I killed it. I did it. I am the only survivor and the last descendant of the Gekkō Family.. I am now Alone.." I thought, I walked millions and millions of miles telling everyone it was me, but they didn't believe me. They thought I was a poor girl dressed up as a knight to get money. I told them because I was lonely and I needed someone to accompany me.

I thought about it under a tree, "My life is ruined, I'm dead, This is just wrong! Oh Sunseat, I thought my life will be O.k.!" I cried to the heavens while crying. "this is it, I cannot handle anymore! I give up!" I told myself putting my paws on my face. Then, a white thing went into my ear saying "I am Zelda, your spirit fairy, I am now your fairy, and I have something to tell you, Be of good cheer, you are a survivor, you lived, don't give up hope now, I know a castle near here where you can stay, It is owned by Queen Peppy Roil, you can ask her if you can stay there, so don't give up now, you can do it. Believe on what's right and never give up hope. That's what Sunseat told you after you left." I agreed with the Fairy, Zelda, and now Here I am. Living and believing and never giving up hope.

The End

I will be adding more stories soon, when I have enough time. So, have fun and Jam on!

Scammers and Hackers

Heya, Jammers.
I would like to thank Breathless for making me an author. Thanks Breathless, it was really appreciated! 8) I will frequently post as much as I can unless I'm too busy to with homework and/or sicknesses, or if my parents don't let me on. I'll try to post as much as I can otherwise. Thanks!
Anyway, obviously everyone has heard of those scammers and hackers. Some Jammers are quitting because of that, hoping that when they come back everything will have changed and everyone will be all cheery and friendly to one another, trading, buddying each other and complimenting each other about their looks and all.
Well sorry to say, but that's not going to change.
I've heard that the old Jamaa was better, and it sounds better too, by the way people describe it: they say everyone was kind to each other, there were no scammers or hackers, no one cared about rares and everyone wanted to learn facts and make friends.
But Jamaa has changed, and sadly, there's evil in the world, and that evil is going to stay there for a while I believe. But seriously, to you scammers and hackers: don't you think that what you're doing actually harms others? And no, I'm not talking about crying over pixels, but they trusted you and you let them down, that would upset me, I know; I wouldn't be crying over the item but because of the fact someone would have tried to take advantage of me. Really, don't they get that they're being complete jerks by trying to harm others like that?
So, like I was saying, some Jammers think this will all end someday with their protests, but I don't think it's ever going to stop because of all of the evil still in the world. You can keep trying to make a difference, you might take out some of the scammers, but more will keep coming, sadly. You still see this everyday:

No one's perfect, and it doesn't hurt to forgive others often, but if you know it's wrong and you're hurting others, why keep doing it? It's pointless. Besides, scamming is getting old; everyone knows the tricks now, few Jammers fall for it nowadays, and the ones who still do will eventually get that you can't trust a lot of people these days.
Same for the hackers; sometimes they can be trickier. Just keep a password that's easy to remember, hard for others to find out. If it's your nickname, and it's so odd no one would ever guess it, use it! Just don't say: "my nickname is yorgieshmorgie" to everyone or they'll guess it quickly.
So keep yourself safe, and try to help your friends. The scammers are likely to never give up, but don't give them the items they believe they deserve.

The Loss of Membership

I've noticed several Jammers grieving over the loss of their memberships as if they had lost a loved one. Members are only an upgraded version of your true animal self. When you're a Member, you still have that great Non-Member gut inside you! Now, you pay money so you can have a larger vairety of animals, items, and dens. Plus, you're helping keep Animal Jam alive. When I start a debate over Non-Members and Members, there's always a couple of Jammers who get angry and say that you're helping keep the site up, which is true. But sometimes, I think that sometimes the items they make for Members only isn't worth it! Designer Skirts? Vanities? TABLET COMPUTERS?!?! What's next? Cell Phones and i-Paw Touches? I don't like the items I've named AT ALL. The Designer Skirts are.....odd for the animals, since they don't stand upright. I just don't like Epic Wonders. That shop should be called Epic Human-ly Wonders for Humans. Anyway, the Animal Jam creators seem to be completely excluding Non-Members. "All I want to say is that they don't even care about us." I mean making parties that indirectly say that they're for Members Only is wrong. They're separating the Non-Members from the Members so dramatically it isn't even funny. They're separating us SO much that Jammer think it's the end of tthe world if they lose their Membership! IT. ISN'T. A. BIG. DEAL. It's only a Membership. You can still play Animal Jam, you can still purchase items and such, talk to buddiees, and have fun. So why are you so sad about not being upgraded? Because you don't get better items? Because you get special nametags, and such? You won't die, you won't get kicked off of Animal Jam if you lose your Membership. WE ARE ALL MEMBERS OF JAMAA! We all deserve to be equal, and still have some things for Members Only! HOWL OUT TO NON-MEMBERS! ~Feelers

That Awkward Moment When You Fall In Love with an Item


Hey Jammers!
So boom, I had just made my post and you know at the bottom of my post where it shows other posts that "you may also enjoy"? Well, I saw a picture of myself as a bunny when I had a beta eyeball and I just had a flashback that went like this:

I had just gotten a sneaky, but amazing trade for this beta eyeball. I had lied to a good jammer that I didn't really know about the value of one of the items I had traded. I knew she would find out eventually and be mad at me, but I was too self-centered and happy about my beta eyeball that I didn't even bother to care. I immediately began changing my animals outfits to match the beta eye, and showing off to my best friends. I was so excited, this one of the special big items I had never had before. I had fallen in love, I felt so right in it, but yet my heart had felt so wrong for lying. I decided to enjoy the moment and go to a party to let everyone gasp and fangirl over my amazing item. I never wanted to take it off, I felt it was meant to be. I didn't know the dangers that would come down the road, dun dun duuuuunnn... (the rest of this story is for another post).

So yeah, I just had to let that out. Now, there's a big difference from ACTUALLY loving an item to just imagining/pretending you do. I'm sure most of you have heard me talk about how I once longed for a Solid blue top so badly, that I kinda stole it in a way, made a good friend quit, and got a lot of haters that wasn't even worth it in the first place. Nowadays, a lot of jammers that I see have the same dream that I once did. You know that feeling, when you make a big trade, and you are nervous to see if you actually like the item, and if you made a good trade? And then once you put it on, you're like "eehhhh... this thing isn't really my type..." or you're like "OMG I NEVER WANT TO TAKE THIS OFF IM NEVER TRADING IT EVAAAAR." Yeah, well, I've had plenty of those experiences. The only items that I've really ever fell in love with is my red leaf, red top hat,  beta eye, black worn, and grey spike. Almost all of them are gone now, and there's still a hole in my heart. </3 (dramatic lol)

I remember a few huge items that I've traded for, that I thought I would be in love with but I wasn't. My top three include my first Solid Blue top hat, a brown/redish worn, and the dark purple-ish worn (when they were rare). I had the solid blue for awhile, and I was kinda disappointed by the "feeling" of it, you know? I enjoyed my red top more. :/ I remember the first time I got my brown worn, it was a nightmare. I literally traded almost all my good rares for it, and I was embarrassed wearing it, and I didn't want too much attention, and I had like nothing left. I eventually traded back. But, I got it again later and I had more stuff, yet it still wasn't that great. When I traded for a purple worn, I only had for about 3 minutes, until I gave it away, but the "feeling" still wasn't that great.

I really shouldn't be using the term "falling in love" with an item, because that's just over-the-top. It's not really love with a pixel item, and a lot of people don't even know what love feels like in the first place. I'm just using it as a term that a lot of people throw around everyday in their communication, but what I really mean is 'liking an item a lot', if that makes any sense.

There's really a difference between falling in love with an item just for the attention you get, and how rare it makes you look, and falling in love with an item because you 'feel' great and confident in it. I remember the first time I started hanging out with the "rarer group of people" I was shocked to see that most of them wore some regular, everyday items that you could buy in Jam Mart Clothing on some of their animals. That's because they feel great and proud in them, and they look pretty cool, too. 
hay im a wolf
Gaaah.. this was kinda a pointless post, but I just wanted to rant and get my message out.
see ya later alligator

So... Hi!

Hi. I am one of the new authors, my username is MisterChunkybuddy. According to Breathless I am on testing mode, so i suppose this is my test post. So this is me on AJ:
I am Spanish and I live in Spain, I have been on AJ since November 2010 and I´ve been blogging for about a year or so.
So I am supposed to post something to the style of JWT, Breathless said. Maybe made up AJ legends? I have only writen two, but If I become a definite author in this blog then I will do loads more. Note: These are fictional stories invented by me, based on the characters by AJHQ. So here they go:
How Liza became an alpha
Once, in a big family of pandas in the middle of a bamboo forest, a panda bear was born. From her birth everybody knew she was very special. Her name was Liza.As she grew up, Liza had so many adventures. She kept bugging her friends to go to explore, and one day she managed to persuade them to go on a hike to the mountain. Five pandas packed all the things they needed to go for the day, and at last when they were ready, they started walking. And walking. And walking, and walking, etc. They stoped for a drink and a snack, and then continued walking. They arrived to a river and stoped again to play in the floating logs, relax their paws in the cool, transparent water and eat some more food. (Pandas eat a lot). Then they walked some more and suddenly came to a rocky wall, almost vertical. Now, pandas are big animals with big paws, so climbing is almost imposible for them. but Liza was too adventure loving and brave to let a rocky wall stop her. So she took out from her bag a thick rope, tied it to a tree and the other side to her waist, and started climbing and climbing until she managed all the way to the top. She called to her friends to climb up with her, using the side of the rope that she had taken up with her to avoid falls. Not very convinced, three of her friends decided to have a go climbing up with her. But one of them was to scared so he decided to stay behind waiting for the others to come back. So all the others climbed the wall to get were Liza was. After that they continued the hike walking through a plain meadow and suddenly came to a river. It was a giant river with tremendous waves striking towards the shore. Was Liza scared? Not a bit. She kept calm. ``Arent you scared?´´ asked one of the three remaining pandas with her? ``What we have to do is to wade through it, but we need a fallen log´´ said Liza. So they looked around an soon found a suitable one. They dragged it to the shore and eventually they got it like a bridge. Liza entered the river and started wading through the rapids holding tightly to the log. She finally came to the other side. ``Come on´´ she called to her friends. ``It is easy´´. And although one of them was too scared to try, the other two made it. They walked and walked until they came to a very steep hill. But that definetly wasn´t a problem and they all managed to do it really easily. But behind the hill there was a huge forest. The trees covered the sky. It was dull and dim and full of cobwebs. But Liza didn´t give up and started going forwatd. Her two friends followed her. And, after a while, one of Liza´s friends gave up and decided to go back home. So the two remaining fellows continued. They realized that they were going upwards. So, at last, they came out of the forest. They were at the top of the mountain! ``Yay!´´ cheered Liza. ``We made it!´´ But suddenly there was a great beam of golden light. Terrified, Liza´s friend ran away. But Liza stayed calm, until the beam of light took shape. ``Who are you?´´ asked Liza. ``I am Zios, the sky father.´´ the figure awnsered. ``What do you want from me?´´ asked Liza. ``I have made a world called Jamaa´´. Zios awnsered. ``It has many lands, and we are looking for animals to enjoy it. We think you could be one of them.´´ ``Ok´´ awnsered Liza. So she was taken to the magical land of Jamaa, and met Mira. ``This is the land you have beeen asigned´´ said Mira. ``Decorate it however you want´´. But it was very late, so Liza just made a quick hut in the middle of a bamboo forest in her land and went to sleep. The next morning, when she woke up she started thinking about her land. She decided it should be a township with lots of fun for animals to meet new friends. So she made Jamaa Township and put in it a special statue in honour of Mira.

How Cosmo became an alpha
One day, a brown koala was born in an eucalyptus forest very, very far away. His fur was entirely shades of brown, unlike all the grey koalas in his family. During a small period of time, the koala was in his mothers poach. (Koalas are marsupials.) But he wasn´t there for long. He was far too active, full of energy, and cheerful to be still and asleep for 20 hours a day like most koalas do. All the other koalas called him Cosmo because he was always doing something, he stayed awake during the night and his eyes glittered and sparkled like the stars. He loved eating, and because he ended up becoming tired of eating eucalyptus leaves, one day he decided to become a herbalist and discover what other things he could eat. And he found lots of plant with many different utilities. He discovered lots of medicines, teas, insect repelents...
As Cosmo grew up, he became really famous for his encyclopedic knowdlege of of all the plants and herbs. He wrote lots of books about plants and became a teacher. He didn´t show books to his students, but he did love to take them to do a field research. During many years, animals of all kinds from all the different places in the world came to him.
All this was watched by Zios, the Sky Father, and Mira, the Sky Mother. they both agreed that Cosmo had something special. So one day, Zios transformed into a brown koala and came to him. At the time, Cosmo was collecting some flowers to dry and make a perfume, when Zios came to him. ``You are brown!´´ Cosmo said. ``Just like me!´´. ``You have something special, Cosmo. ``Zios said. ``We have been watching you. There´s a spark inside you. Come with me´´. So Cosmo followed him, a bit confused. They reached a clear, sunny place, in the middle of the forest. Cosmo looked at his partner, and suprisingly he had changed! He wasn´t a brown koala anymore, but a golden sun blinding bright. ``You have what we need a shaman to have, Cosmo. This is the magic world of Jamaa. This is called Sarepia Forest, and it will be your land. Make sure to make it enjoyable and educational.´´ Than a big blue bird with a magical look came to them. ``He is Zios, the Sky Father.´´ she said. ``I am Mira, the Sky mother. We created the world of Jamaa, our materpiece. We are picking shamans to make it perfect. Please help us look after it and keep it away from dark forces´´. And Zios and Mira flew away. Cosmo was atonished. He climbed the highest tree and went to sleep.
The next morning he woke up and started remembering all that had happened. He looked at the forest and started to work on it. He made a wooden platform wth slides, staircases and fences. On it he placed games and two huts that would later become the flag shop and Theater Lobby. He even put little lights all over the trees, ad mostly filled his land with all sorts of flowers, herbs and mushrooms. Creating was fun! In the end, Cosmo made a fire pit. He lighted it with some very special plants and you can convoque Mira if you dance next to it.

So hoped you liked that! I hope I can become a definite author so I can do much, much more!

A Few Updates

Hey Jammers!
So this is kinda a short, informational post, ok? I have a few items of business to cover. o:

1) Well, I was thinking about how I could improve my blog, and I noticed that I don't really update the pages anymore. So, I need your opinion, should I remove some of the pages? If so, which ones? I was thinking of removing the Ask me page, since I don't really answer the questions, and I'll be doing the Q&A posts every once in awhile, like every two weeks or so. I would also remove the 'More Blogs' page, since I don't update it, and there's a lot of other huge blog links out there. (I high recommend AJS's blog list) that are more accurate. I don't know if I should remove the codes or not, I kinda update it every now and then if someone informs me of a new code. I would remove the scammers page, because I don't update it, and it's a lot of false accusation on there. What do you think? Please comment your opinion, every opinion counts!

2) Many people have asked about 'The Truth' page, and yes, it's still a work in progress, I don't have much time to sit down and type it all up, and it's kind of hard to update because I've shared so much in posts, but I'm still working on it, and I am going to try to get it back up in about a week or so. Some people say "I'm scared to post the truth" Pssh, what? No. I've shared a lot more in posts then I did in that Truth, all I really talked about was how I was XxFreeSpiritxX, and why I switched, and cubanboy, blah blah blah. Believe it or not, some really deep confessions that I haven't posted about will be featured in there, just to have you guys look forward to something(:

not my art, just my edit &lt;3

3) Authors! Yes, I have hired some authors. Our current Author list right now, as read from the official list in the settings are: Breathless, Feelers, Greatshot, Supermonkeys, APowerfulBlueDestiny, and MisterChunkyBuddy. Greatshot & MisterChunkyBuddy are in testing, we're going to see if we like them as authors. I talked to Supermonkeys, and she's posted before on here, she says that she may start posting again every now and then, but I don't know. :/ APowefulBlueDestiny has posted on here a lot before, (she changes usernames a lot) and I emailed her asking if she's still going to post, but she hasn't responded.... Feelers is confirmed, and I'm still very excited to have her as an author, her profile will be up on the sidebar as soon as she sends me a picture of her avatar. xD Author slots will always be open, so feel free to send in an author request to animaljamgoldfish@aol.com any time!

4) I guess my email (animaljamgoldfish@aol.com) is kind of an advice email now, because I've mentioned it in past posts, I don't really go on AJ much, and when I do, I don't talk much. I've had a lot of people email me about online or real life situations there in, and I try my best to give an honest opinion and answer. So, I guess, if you're kind of stuck right now, email me? o:

5) Pssh, I know I always say this, but I think I'm going to be posting more often. I have a lot of ideas for posts, and I'm constantly signing up authors. But, my question is a) Do you like authors? and b) Do you like leaving up posts for a day or two (so the comments can be a discussion) or would you rather have constant posts, daily?

6) Yay, top hats came today! I always knew this day would come, and I can proudly admit, that don't give a rat's behind about it, I have no emotion, I'm not crushed, but overjoyed. And surprisingly enough, I just traded my rarest top hat for a few founders, so I'm still kinda rare? o.o Not that it matters. I had two top hats (striped black and solid black) and I'm happy that anyone can wear them now! You can refer back to my old post, WHY I WANT TOP HATS TO COME OUT, by clicking -> here <-.

So yeah, that's it. Thanks for reading, I'm so happy I enjoy blogging more now! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE  answer my questions in the comment section belooooow \/ (hah I sound like RWJ) I really need your opinion!

5 Months Time

Hey Jammers!
So, as I'm updating 'The Truth' page, (Which will hopefully be up shortly ^.^) I'm listening to this song called '5 Years Time' by Noah and the Whale, which isn't necessarily my FAVORITE Genre/Song/Band, but it's still a cute song. (: 

Oh, My point of showing you this?
I think it's a cute lil' song that teaches about yeah, we'll have some regrets and have done some bad things, were addicted to some things, but we'll grow out of it eventually and laugh at ourselves. (Which I'm doing now as I'm writing the truth xD)

So, I took the lyrics and AnimalJam-ized them. :D

Oh well in five months time we could be making our den like a zoo
With the sun shining down over me and you
And there'll be love in the souls of the jammers too
And I'll put my paws over your eyes, but you'll peep through

And there'll be hate hate hate
 All over our blogs
And rumors rumors rumors
All down our throat
And fans fans fans
All over our faces
And happiness sadness happiness
So what the heck

Cos I'll be laughing at all your silly little jokes
And we'll be laughing about how we used to trade
All those stupid little rares
And say stupid lies
Cos it's what we needed to have a good time

And it was fun fun fun
When we were scamming
It was sad sad sad
When we were accused
And it was scary scary scary
When we were hacking
It was fun fun fun
Oh it was fun

Oh well I look at you and say
It's the happiest that I've ever been
And I'll say I no longer feel I have to be Famous and Rare
And you'll say
Yah well I feel all pretty happy too
And I'm always pretty happy when I'm just kicking back with you

And it'll be
  Laughter Laughter Laughter
All through our bodies
And Regret Regret Regret
All through our minds
And it be Smiles Smiles Smiles
All over your face
And Happiness Happiness Happiness
All over mine

Although maybe all these moments are just in my head
I'll be thinking 'bout them as I'm lying in bed
And all that I believed it might never really come true
But we had a pretty good time tradin' and laughin' with you


Five months time
I might not trade
Five months time
We might not speak
In five months time
We might not get along
In five months time
You might just prove me wrong

Oh there'll be hate hate hate
Wherever you go
There'll be trading trading trading
Wherever you go
There'll be love love love
Wherever you go
There'll be scammin' scammin' scammin'
Wherever you go
There'll be lying lying lying
Wherever you go
There'll be sadness sadness sadness
Wherever you go
There'll be happiness happiness happiness

Wherever you go there'll be trading


So, in my version it's about two vetran-traders, like myself and a few friends, reflecting on all the old times they had. Just thought I'd share this with you guys. cx

The Answers

Hi Jammers!
Five days ago I put up a post where you could ask me ANYTHING you wanted, and now I have the answers to your questions!
(psst. sorry the spacing between the questions is kinda wierd, I tried the best I could to fix it but it was just blehhh)

Ok, let's start..

Question One: Do you... like pie? 
 Hah, somehow I knew this question would come up. ASKDFLJHASDKLFJA YES I DO. Well, most pies I like. But I can't stand fruit pies. -_- I prefer cookies though.

Question Two: What's the craziest rumor you've heard about yourself? 
 Hmmm... I can't remember most of them, but the craziest one was quite recent. I was in an argument with someone after me and my husband (gaah, still need to make a post about that) pulled a prank on her. She told me that I WAS my husband, and I thought it was the most insane thing ever. Than she started spreading it around, but I don't think anyone believed her.

Question Three: Do you have a spare account that I can have? 
 I'm sorry, I know you keep asking me about it but it's just too risky. A couple of my friends have gotten hacked after doing something like that, and I believe that someone could come in contact with your Parent Dashboard through the IP address when you're playing on that account, and then they could get access to usernames, passwords, personal information, and billing. I'm sure you're a nice guy, meaning no harm, but it's just too risky. I'm sure there's another way you can get a new account!

Question Four: Have you ever been bullied? 
 In 'real life' or AJ? Well of course I have on AJ, every single day I think every jammer gets bullied somehow. In real, yes I was severely bullied through Preschool - Third grade. Then, I went to this place that talks about leadership, confidence, and a bunch of those good values and I got more confidence, made different friends and my life turned around completely. cx

Question Five: What's the rarest item in Jamaa? 
 Honestly, at this point I don't know. Most of the huge rares have come out. To most jammers, I'm sure it's top hats or 3 of a kind beards, but I'm sure someone is hiding an item from AJHQ that not many people know about. Sorry, I'll try to find out!

Question Six: Why do people only get respect if they have worns, top hats, beards, collars, etc? 
 DTAFASDJASKLKHDFAHISD IKR.  Actually, this question made me think back to the first day I joined Animal Jam. I think I've posted about this before, but I saw Glados135 in the Jamaa Township looking fancy with a flag, top hat, collar, and legendary glove and talked to her about rares, and then she became my role model. People give rare people respect for many reasons. One, because they think that they must be sophisticated to get that rare, meaning they're older, cooler, and experienced, and naturally, people want to hangout with those type of people and be seen with them, so they try to act cool and different around them, hoping they will earn they're respect, become they're friend, etc. I've learned this from being on both sides of it.

Question Seven: What is the time you've had the most fun on AJ? 
 Well, I can't really remember a specific moment, but I remember right when I switched from MisterArcticClaw to XxFreeSpiritxX, tons of people gave me more respect, I had more friends, and I had a cool new start, and I was at a perfect moment in rares at that time, I didn't have too little or too much - but just right. That only lasted for about a week, however. But then a few months later I was at my peak in 'fame', friends, rares and parties, which was super fun until it all started going downhill.

Question Eight: What's your opinion on One Direction?
 I sound SO hipster saying this, but they're a little too mainstream for me, and I'm not a huge fan of pop. heavymetalalltheway. I still like them, admire them, and respect them for being who they are, being talented for making good music, and they make a lot of people happy, so why hate them?

Question Nine: How do you know if a guy likes you?
 Oh geez, dear, you shouldn't be worried about this. (I sound like a parent saying that, but I'll explain it in another post). Yet, I'll still answer your question! How you really know if a guy likes you, is if he makes a point to connect and talk with you. Does he text you first, talk to you first, try to hang out? Does he seem interested in you, or himself and his other friends? What kinds of things do you talk about? Do you talk about your interests and his interests, or all about him and his friends?

Question Ten: Do you like Cheese? 
 Provolone or Cheddar? American or Swiss? Holes or no holes? I like almost all cheese, except for the really strong tasting kind. -_- I love cheese pizza. But, I can only eat a little bit of cheese at a time, before it starts tasting yucky. p:

Question Eleven: What kind of TV do you watch? 
I don't watch a lot of tv, but when I do, I enjoy Big Bang Theory, Family Guy, South Park, Modern Family, The Middle, and MY LITTLE PONY <3 but nothing really specific since I don't watch TV that often...

Question Twelve: What do you do when someone starts hitting on you on AJ? 
This doesn't happen that much anymore, since I'm non-member and don't wear that many rares, and I don't dress that girly. But, when I do, I usually ignore them, or say "Sorry I'm not interested", but sometimes  I'll start hitting on them back (in a joking way).  hehehehe.

Question Thirteen: If you figured out one of your buddies was a hacker, what would your immediate response be? 
Well, this has happened a few times before. I would immediately ask how they did it, because of general curiosity. Then, I honestly would use that method (if possible) to hack a few inactive beta players, but not any active jammers. I would then spitfire them with tons of questions on how they figured it out, who they have hacked, why, when this started, and etc. But, if I could only do one thing, I would make them promise not to hack any active jammers, because that's just cruel.

Question Fourteen: What's the most meaningful thing anyone has ever said to you on AJ, real life, or any other site? 
I have two kinda serious answers. I think "I love you" is probably the most meaningful thing that my family and other close people to me have said. I hate how people just throw the saying around and take it for granted, because someday you'll actually realize what it means. My parents always tell me it, and when going through hard times as you get older, you'll eventually appreciate it.
My second answer is "I love you just the way you are." I've had a lot of people say it to me, but only a few actually meant it. And I knew it. And I don't know how to describe it, but you just feel perfect and think about it and wonder how a person could love you that way and it's just one of the greatest feelings in the world.

Question Fifteen: What's your biggest fear? 
Two Answers! SPIDERS OMIGAWDJIALUSHSKI. I just can't stand them, I don't know how to explain it. Second answer, the fact that someone close is going to leave you, I think everyone shares that as their biggest fear. Just think about it. Someone that means so much to you, just disappearing and never coming back. I don't think I need to explain it anymore.

Question Sixteen: Has anyone ever called you 'hot' or 'sexy'? 
Online, yes. In real life, no. I think our age group is too young to be called sexy, maybe sometimes hot, but I'd much rather be called 'beautiful' or 'pretty' or 'gorgeous'. I personally don't mind if I'm not hot or sexy, I guess I would PREFER to be hot or sexy, but It's not something that I'll strive to be.

Question Seventeen:  Do you ever just NOT think things through? 
I'm sure I have before, but I'm more of an overthinker, unfortunately. I overanalyze every single little thing, which can sometimes be bad, or sometimes good. Once I was talking to my coach about doing some serious things, and he told me that you don't have to rush to do anything, time keeps running, and you'll always have more time to think it through, so don't rush yourself to do anything!

Question Eighteen: What are some trending sayings where you live? 
Where I am, it's more of who you hang out with. A lot of trending things are using the word "uber" saying, "oooh gir/boi" "I like your face" and of course, the usual wtf & wth.

Question Twenty: Have you ever felt like everyone around you were robots, and were incapable of feeling emotions?
Well, I myself have felt like that/been like that before, until certain people came into my life and taught me to open up, you know? I haven't felt that EVERYONE around me was like that, but sometimes certain people. A lot of times it perplexes me why people don't feel the same sympathy/empathy that I feel...I don't know how to explain it.

Question Twenty-One: Do you ever wish you could be something other than Human?
YEAH. A lot of times I wish I could be a dog, they seem so happy, bubbly, and content with themselves. I always have wanted to have fur, too. :/ But, being a human is great too. We're one of the smartest beings on the planet, capable of so much. Just think about it - We only use 10% of what our mind can accomplish.

Question Twenty-Two: Do you ever engage in Roleplay online?
No. I think I have a couple times before, in chat rooms on blogs or so. I also remember one time I signed up to be apart of this role play wolves blog, but I didn't really enjoy it, and it's just not my thing. I personally think Roleplay is great, it stretches imagination. And, it's fun to pretend to be something else sometimes.

c: just thought I would make it, idk, I was bored

Question Twenty-Three: Have you ever been in a clan on Animal Jam?
Yeah, I think I've told this story a few times. When I was on MisterArcticClaw, I was always trying to be in tons of clans. Until, one time, I broke up with cubanboy, and he turned the whole clan against me, and they were saying things like *punches* *beats* *locks in cage* and I was so done with clans. Until a couple months ago, I got kinda bored on Goldfishypuppy and joined my friends clan, which turned out to be REALLY addicted for a couple weeks, but then it wasn't really my thing, and I got bored of it. I think clans are fun if kept in moderation.

Question Twenty-Four: What jammer in your opinion, has thrown the best parties of all time?
I don't really have an answer. I've attended a few of LoveLost's and Snowyclaw's huge blogging parties, but their not really that fun, because all the attention is focused on getting screenshots with them. I feel selfish saying this, but when I was on XxFreeSpiritxX, I had SOOO many huge parties in the summer. I had around three a day, and I would bring my lion into the Aldan township, and announce a party at my den, and in 3 seconds flat, half the township would be gone. They were full within 10 minutes, and once I got in their, it was a HUGE trading central. All my buddies were in their, trading, trading, trading away. And I had some of the best dens, that I spent 2 hours each decorating with only beta rares. Sorry, I was kinda bragging, but those were HANDS DOWN the best days on AJ I've ever had.

Question Twenty-Five: Do you like the bands Black Veil Brides, Panic! At the Disco, Say Anything, My Chemical Romance, and Bowling for Soup? 
I like 'Fallen Angels' and 'Knives and Pens' by BVB, but I don't constantly listen to them, their not really my type, but they have great vocals. I LOVE PATD, Brandon Urie has such a pretty voice. My favorite song by them is 'Build God, then we'll talk' I swear I've memorized every single word and the whole music video. I haven't heard of Say Anything or Bowling for Soup. I do like MCR, but I don't listen to them Constantly. My favorite songs are 'Sing', 'Welcome to the Black parade' and of course, 'Teenagers'! <3 Sorry, I have a bit of an inner fangirl. ._____.

Question Twenty-Six: In a typical week, how many hours would you say you spend on Animal Jam nowadays?
I'm usually not on Animal Jam for more then thirty minutes at a time, usually once a day. So I guess about 3-4 hours a week? Better than my past.. I used to be on for about 8 hours a day... daaaaaaang. And if you are for about 8 hours a day, that's okay, just try to minimize it a little bit at a time, I promise you, it's just a phase, it seems like it will go on forever, but then you'll turn out like me. :P

Question Twenty-Seven: Do you ever find your fans obnoxious, if so, what is the craziest thing a fan has done to get your attention? 
No, not really obnoxious. Sometimes a little bit, when they spam your inbox begging to add you.. But not really. I feel really uncomfortable talking to fans in person on Animal Jam, I feel like I have to be perfect and seem interesting, ya know? The craziest thing a fan has done to get my attention, was to create a fake profile of my account, an 'imposter' and then they asked me to come to their den, and I was about to BLOW UP at anger to them. But, then they said they were just a fan that wanted to meet me. I was like, "Aww (\^.^/)".

Question Twenty-Eight:  About 2 years ago I was aware of how immature I was, and I embraced it! It's kind of the only thing that got me by in life, but than I met a guy... I'm not saying it made me mature to like a guy, I was just happy whenever I was around him. He asked me out, and I told him politely; "I really like you, and I know that I'll sound stupid for rejecting you for these reasons; I don't want to have my first kiss to be awkward, and taste like cheetohs, I'm not interested in being driven by your mother on our first date, I want you to pick me up! I'm an impressionable kid, and I don't want to get caught up in the drama of a relationship so young, and I have enough trouble going on already. I'm sorry, and I know if you wanted to get to know me more dating might be the best way to do it... But again, I'm still so young, and so are you, and if you just waited a little longer we might be able to date..." This had absolutely no freaking effect. He had a "girlfriend" in his arms the next day, and made fun of me for being awkward, and gross. Now he likes me again, and I hate myself for liking him back, he broke up with his girl a while ago, and I don't know what to do?! Should I start talking to him again? Because honestly I miss having conversations with him, even if we don't start dating. What should I do?
Hah, that is exactly what I would do. Sure, I admit, the 'cheetohs' part, was kinda gross, but funny and cute. cx You have GREAT reasons not to go out with him, I couldn't of said it better. I think the best idea would be to stay friends until you're old enough, and it seems you suggested that, but he denied. Is he the kind of guy that everyone likes, so in all, he could get anyone he wants? Don't be discouraged that he had a girlfriend the next day, YOU were his first choice. Don't get annoyed that they make fun of you. He's just taking his anger out because you rejected him, and his girlfriend is just going along with him because she feels that's what she's supposed to do. I think it would be a great idea to start talking, he probably misses talking to you, too. And, if you two do start going out again, think of how his past relationship(s) have gone. Were they awkward? Did they actually do couple-y things? Is he kinda a 'playa'? Think about those things, and then decide. If you two do start talking again, and you don't start talking about dating, then be friends! It's not that bad!

Question Twenty-Nine: Do you like any of the following: Squishy squids, pie, or cats?
Squsihy squids seem cool, but scary and creepy. o.e. I've already answered about pie, lol. Cats, umm, I'm more of a dog person. I currently own 1 cat, 1 just passed away, but we're getting two more cats soon! cx

Question Thirty: Do you like Ramen Noodles?
Yeah, they're okay. Not my favorite food, though. They get kinda boring... I like the shrimp kind.

Question Thirty-One: If you were on a giant sparkly pink paper plane going to going to a lion's den in Kenya and the person sitting next to you was an orange alien flying penguin with body hair, bad gas, (I mean some serious B.O.) and ten limbs sitting on a bubble in the shape of a pie and the pilot was a dangerously stupid mutant gerbil eating spoiled mini pancakes while listening to Japanese soap oprahs (oopsies ;)) and the plane was crashing into a 2,000 foot super salty ocean filled with hungry sharks, lions, tarantulas, sharp thorns and brussel sprouts and a really chubby two-year old boy was disco dancing to your least favorite song while wearing a straight jacket with MLP on it and the windows were made of clear jelly and you had to escape the plane right away but the parachute was a blind rabbit with cardborad wings and a giant spikey helmet... -takes a deep breath- what would you do?
(whoa you have a seriously good imagination..)
Lolno I would use my super-awesome secret super power that I still can't reveal and I would escape to the local supermarket in Sydney Australia, and buy the orange alien/flying penguin a hair brush, soap, and deodorant. I would also buy the dangerously stupid gerbil a dictionary and teleport him to Kindergarten so he could earn an education, and then I would sue whoever made him the pilot of this plane that's going to a Lion's den in Kenya. I would also cook that gerbil some non-spoiled Bisquick mini pancakes to fill his empty stomach, because no one can learn when their hungry. ;) I would save the plane from crashing in the ocean filled with sharks and other nasty creatures. Then, I would put the chubby two-year-old boy listening to my least favorite song on a treadmill, and then give him some earphones and compliment him on his MLP straight jacket, because MLP is amazing. I would have the blind rabbit eat the clear jelly, barf it up, and bake it into parachutes so everybody could escape safely from the plane. c:

Question Thirty-Two: What's the most random question you've ever recieved?
The last question. ^

Question Thirty-Three: Has anyone ever stalked you on AJ? 
Not that I know of. o.O
Well, not really stalking, but a few of my fan buddies have constantly followed me around. :/

Question Thirty-Four: Have you ever been in a scary relationship online?
Not really severely scary. But sometimes they want to know personal information which can be a bit frightening.

Question Thirty-Five: Can I copy your animals? 
Of course! I adore when people copy my animals!

Question Thirty-Six: Do you have a celebrity crush?
Adam Levine <3

Now, MY QUESTION to YOU GUYS. Should we have more Q&A like this? How often? In posts?
Let me know!

Thanks for asking, this was really fun jammers, more posts to come & keep sending in author applications if you're still interested!

Identity's Wingspan

Hello Jammers! Just thought I would post about Jammers' identities, because I've noticed that many of them have been giving away their identities and personal information.         On Bloggerr, it's okay to share your gender, and things you like and dislike, obviously. But what about your real name, school, state, city, and things like that?               My first theory on this is that Jammers might just want to be popular, or known. They want to be famous in the real world; have Jammers actually horde up and ask for an autograph or something. That's an advantage. Disadvantage? Bullies. Creepers. People who want to know more information and plot to do bad things to you. You could get into a situation when you're chatting online with a guy or lady friend that you've known, and they want to meet you. You think "Ohh, they seem hot and I want a boy/girlfriend." Then you meet them and they're actually a hobo who has dirty hands that throws you in a bag and shreds it to pieces. Doesn't that just sound like a wonderful boy/girlfriend to have? No.  The internet can be fun, but it's also a very dangerous place. Cyber-space (hey that unintentionally rhymed). Pictures of yourself, your name, your state, these are dangerous things to put on a computer. Why do you do this? Do you want somebody to think you're good-looking? Do you want to be famous in the real world? You may achieve, but you will not suceed. Someone might say "Oh you're hot." But another might say "You're ugly!" Doesn't mean you are ugly! Someone might see you and want your autograph. Another might try to kill you. Those are a few dangers of being famous. Don't underestimate Identity's Wingspan. It will bite you in the face. ~Feelers

A Little Q&A Anyone?

Hi Jammers!
Ok so, yes I know that we have an "Ask Me" page that nobody really uses that often, and is just filled with buddy questions and trading questions. I don't even check it that much either. o:
But, I wanted to do a Question and Answer post where you guys can ask questions in the comments, and I'll answer them in a next post. Sound cool?

Well, I'm gonna try my hardest to answer each and every question in-depth but I'm not going to give out personal information, or answer awkward questions...

Questions could be something like, 

"Hey Breathless, What's your pump-up song?"
"What's the worst friendship you've ever had on Animal Jam?"
"Tell me about the best trade you ever got"
"I'm going through a hard time right now, my friend and me aflkdshfahadsfiluhds what should I do?" 
"Favorite Cereal?"
"How do you know if someone's a true friend or not?"
"What's your opinion on real-life relationships in elementary and middle school?"
"Have you ever been in a scary relationship online?"

and you get the point. I just think this will be fun because the blog has a more serious twist to it now, and I'd like to open up and help you guys out more than I have in the past. cx

Also, it would be great if you guys could leave post requests and youtube video ideas in the comments, cause I'm afraid I've caught a tiny writers block again. :/

short post, but I think this will be fun! ask away! I'll answer every question (but no promises hehe)

ps. a contest is coming up with a huge prize! :D
a huge prize!? o: oh my

When You're Feeling All Alone

Hi Jammers!

Okay so, I think that at some point in everyone's life, (or everyday or many times) you feel so alone, like no one cares about you, you're unwanted, everyone hates you, you're too different for everyone. Right? Okay, I know those sound like pretty basic things that everyone talks about, but it can be hurtful on two different levels. Level one, where it just affects you for a brief moment or a little longer, (a few hours, all day?) by something small-ish such as a kinda rude remark your friend said. Level two, where you feel down for quite awhile (a week or more?) and you're whole mood and perspective of life adjusts. TRANSPARENT
not my art but my edit :)

Well, I've developed a few ideas that can help you through it. I've felt this way MANY times before on AJ, when people call me a rare-hogger, rare-obsessed, and all these other mean names. Or, other times when groups of 30 people or more have stomped into my den, telling me to quit and that I shouldn't exist. Whatever the situation, I felt worthless, even though I was just trying my best.

Okay, on with the ideas!

1) Think of everyone in your life ^~^

When I'm pondering life, I usually think about the people who have influenced me. If you feel like nobody cares about you, think of EVERYONE in your life who seems to be reaching out to you, wants to be your friend, or seems to care about you (even in the slightest way). Maybe they're not your closest friend, but they sure have a chance of being, right? They don't have to be the most popular in-crowd person in your school (even if you may be) to be your friend. Or, maybe people that you've had small friendships with in the past, that have kinda faded away. Maybe they want you back? Think of EVERYONE. Your church group, the old neighbor lady next door (fun fact: my neighbor reached out to me and  taught me how to knit, and now I give my friends scarfs for Christmas presents!), that one nerdy guy in your skiing class, there are TONS of people in your life and you don't even realize it, its not just the group you hang in in school. 

2) I know it sounds cheesy, but have a pump up song! :D

EXCUSE MY CHEESINESS. Pump-up songs are NOT just for exercising, lol. What I mean by a pump-up song, is one that will you make you happy NO MATTER what. And I seriously mean no matter what. I've searched for this kind of song for a long, long time (4 months or so?). No, it doesn't have to be Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" to get you going, it could be a never-heard-of artist that has a cool, slow, electro song that makes you happy. I don't know about you, but music changes my mood drastically. I don't recommend it having emotional lyrics, because that just might get your mind thinking more and more. D:

3) Don't suck it up, let it all out! (But not for too long ...)

Okay, I know A LOT of people say sometimes "dude, you just needa let it out and chyyyyllll" But yes, you do. You can't just keep it sucked up inside you all day. So go, go, go and scream and shout and kick and sob into your pillow. I know my pillow has some mascara and tear stains from previous nights. And that's okay. It is natural for us to get sad. But, don't do this EVERY NIGHT for the next months, no, cause then it just gets worse and goes far beyond just crying and screaming. Make a plan to be happy the next morning, so your anger doesn't affect others... and that leads me into my next idea.

4) Don't you dare take it out on others

I tend to do this A LOT. Especially with my parents. Don't take your anger and sadness out on other people. They didn't have anything to do with the reason you're upset. (Well, most of the time, but if they did, screaming and shouting at them isn't gonna help anymore.) Just be positive around them, but don't act too fake. And if they're really gettin' on your nerves, just tell to back off in a sweet way, such as, "Hey, I'm sorry I'm not having too good of day, and I'm not quite in the mood to chat. Can we talk later? thxluvyabye" And of course, they will ask, "Oh darlin' what's the matter?" Just say something like, "I'll tell ya later" "It's personal" or "I don't feel like talking about it, sorry".

5) Don't commit to any decisions!

When you're sad, you can easily convince yourself that (some idea) is the smartest option ever and will make everything better. Maybe it really is, but who knows. Anything can seem like a good option when you're down. I remember when I was super sad one time, I fully committed to a decision and actually attempted to do it, and it almost f*cked everything up, (excuse my language), it still affects me a little bit, but I'm so glad I didn't do it. One of my favorite quotes is, "Before you commit to a decision, write a letter to your future self explaining why you're doing it." Writing not your thing? Find a trusted person, and explain your reasoning to them. Not comfortable doing it? Pretend you're talking to someone, and verbally SAY IT OUT LOUD what you're situation is and why you're doing it. Trust me, it really helps. Leads me into my next topic... 

6) Talk it over. 

I know, I know, I sound so cliche saying this. But it actually does help. You really can't hold it all inside you, it will just get more tangled up. Actually talking to someone, and getting their opinion on it REALLY HELPS. It puts your situation in much better perspective, and you get someone elses ideas on it, which you may have NEVER EVER EVER IN A BILLION YEARS thought of, and it just might untangle everything and solve your lil' puzzle. Ok so, maybe you aren't the closest to your parents or that's too "awkward", or maybe your bff is such a gossiper and you can't trust her, or you feel there's no one you can trust... go to a stranger! Such as a fun teacher, a school counselor, or your neighbor. You may not know them that well, but you know they care enough to want to help you. They have NO background information on your situation, which is perfect for a real opinion and real advice. If you're thinking eh, goldy, i don't feel too comfortable doing that... That's okay, just breathe, I'm not forcing you to do anything, but, why not? 

 7) Put a positive spin on life! ^.^

Yep, I sound mainstream again. But it's true. One day I was so sad, laying in bed all day sobbing, when all of a sudden it came it to me - be happy, look on the brightside. Look at something you hate, and think about all the good things about it. But goldy, there is no good things about it. Wrong. Let's take a little example... Christmas lights. One could say, "ew there so ugly and colorful and make their house look so tacky bleeehh" But another could look on the good side and say, "Hey, that's really nice that they put all that effort into hanging up Christmas lights to celebrate this season and possibly make other people happy. They're so bright, cheery, and only come once a year. Why not celebrate them?" See what I mean? Okay, in the event of you hating another human being, just think. They were put on this earth FOR A PURPOSE, FOR A REASON, and to make others happy, including that special someone. Just think about that, ok? 

Eh, that's all for now. I had a few more, but they're even more cliche and I'll just make a separate post about them. I hope this helps, this kinda got carried away from the "feeling all alone" topic, but I guess it's still postable. See y'all later.
