Border

Today’s prompt : Border 

I’m very happy today to share today’s prompt, something I haven’t done for a very long time and it’s a part of why I’m so happy do retry this writing exercise.

We’re in a a world where borders have always been a problem. Since the ancient times, kingdoms have always had the will to push their borders accross another country and to invade them.

Religion was helping during Middle Age, as religions and civil wars spread across the Old Continent.

Asia wasn’t spared either during all the conflicts between China and Japan.

The two World Wars are also an example of this, Belgium borders didn’t count anymore for  the german army who used that country to go to France. Hitler, with the Anschluss, invaded Poland.

And the same things repeat again and again, to the world we know today, and with the migrants crisis all over the world.

Daily Prompt : 1984

You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room

That’s gonna be a very short post, as there’s not a lot to describe about what you can see in your own room that can frighten you.

In the room, my bed. A double bed, more precisely. On its left, a wardrobe and on the right, a big mirror. It’s the night, curtains are shut down, only shadows are to be seen. I lock the door and go silently to bed, looking for a little warmth. I lay there for a few minutes and then I see something silent, but moving in my room’s bathroom. Here it is. The thief. Now my greatest fear has taken place. A thief, holding a gun is in my room. Whoah. And I’m locked there, with no possibilities of going out. I’ll be fake asleep and we’ll see what happens, hoping that nothing goes wrong.

Daily Prompt : Trick or Trick ? (I’d say Trick…)

Let’s imagine it’s Halloween, and you just ran out of candy. If the neighborhood kids (or anyone else, really) were to truly scare you, what trick would they have to subject you to?

So let’s imagine it’s Halloween, and, sadly, I run out of candy…. Well, first I never have candy so I can’t really run out of it…

But let’s say I love sweets, then if they were to scare me, thoses little monsters, I guess I could play their game and say ” I’m so sorry guys, I don’t have candies…”, ” Then if you don’t we trick you and the Great Werewolf will come after you” they would reply. How cute they were, in their Hall oween costumes! I’d spend the night in my bed thinking about candies and laughing about that Great Werewolf threat and if only I saw a shadow in my bedroom, even if it’s some light from outside against my curtains, I’m sure I’ll be under my blanket, dying of fear for the rest of the night !

I’ll catch you, Werewolf!

Daily Prompt: I Believe

For today’s prompt, tell us three things that you believe in your heart to be true. Tell us three things you believe in your heart to be false.

Three things to be true

I believe I can manage if I want, whenever, wherever and whatever.

I believe people to be good deep inside them. The most guilty person has done good things at least once in his life.

I believe people must be who they are, that’s the only way to be

Three things to be false

I’m someone popular and admired (yeah I know, a lot of people are the same as me!)

I believe I can do only good things. That’s false because I have done wrong so many times !

I believe my truth is THE truth. It is not true because someone proved it to me more than once. Plus, we can never prove one’s truth is the universal truth!

Hey, I like the presentation of this article! That’s like a little poem without rhymes, but not all the poems have rhymes!

What did you think about it ? I know it could be a bit far-fetched but I didn’t have a lot of inspiration to write this Prompt.

Hope you’ve liked !

Daily Prompt: Pour Some Sugar on Me

What is your favorite sweet thing to eat? Bread pudding? Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies? A smooth and creamy piece of cheesecake? Tell us all about the anticipation and delight of eating your favorite dessert. Not into sweets? Tell us all about your weakness for that certain salty snack.

Hello there !

My favorite sweet thing to eat ? I don’t really know about that, but if I had to choose one, it would be chocolate cake or cookies. I just looooove the smell of the chocolate cake when it’s baking !

I like cookies too because it is crunchy and it’s better with chocolate !

But now, those last weeks, I’m rather fond of vegetables, only because I don’t want to eat too much starchy food, so I tell my mum: ” This day, that one and that one, I want veggies ! “.

Of course, she’s not against the fact of eating vegetables, but there’s  my little sister, who doesn’t eat a lot of vegetables, she prefers things like pizzas, potatoes, hamburger, that kind of food !

Let me give you an advice: Never let her do the menus, and never tell her what we’ll eat if this is veggies and fish !

And there’s also what we eat at the school’s canteen…. There’s always the choice, but the veggies…. they are quite weird I think. That’s only my opinion, of course, you can believe that I lie and all the schools’ food are good, but as I said, it’s only my opinion. I prefer eating the potatoes, pasta or rice they’re given, but there’s no place for too much sugar during meals.I don’t snack, first because it’s not healthy, and also because I try to reduce the amount of sugar and bad things for health.

Have a good meal full of veggies this evening !

This is it for this DP, and I know I’m a little bit out of the subject, but I hope you’ve enjoyed that little story, and there is a last thing I wanted to say : EAT VEGETABLES ! 😉

 

Daily Prompt: Never Surrender

Are you stubborn as a grass stain or as easy going as a light breeze on a warm day? Tell us about the ways in which you’re stubborn — which issues make you dig your heels in and refuse to budge?

A new Daily Prompt ! You missed it, don’t deny, I know it !I am someone really stubborn. In fact I play with it, and it is quite fun !

Now, I am stubborn but I do it my way, for instance, I don’t like when people decide things for me, so I could tell them I won’t do it, whatever that involves.

The week before the holidays, we had a special event at school, a music competition. Our class didn’t have something right, until the tuesday before the event, which was on friday.

So, I thought I didn’t want to do it, because, even if being ridiculous does not kill someone, I didn’t want to be ridiculous, so I thought I would be sitting on my chair and let the others do it. People in my class told me I had to do it, everyone must participate, but I wouldn’t hear that. At last, I did it because the choreography was better than before.

If I don’t want to do something, then people can’t make me do that, I am as stubborn as a mule !

If I really want to show I’m that stubborn, I can never do what people want me to do, and do it later on my own !

One time, a teacher enrolled me for the music rehearsals at school, but I didn’t want so, I didn’t go but I thought I could go after when I had decided so. Now it’s too late to do it, but I promise I would have done it on my own if I wanted !
I guess it’s a little bit confused and you may not understand but I understand myself :p !

I also know our great friend Kimmie is like me !

All has an end, even those great Daily Prompts ! So I should let it like that and say you goodbye 🙂 !

Zoe from MEEL, at your service for writing 😉 !

Daily Prompt: The New School

You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?

My school would be a selective school where there would have a maximum of 20 students in each class and I would separate hard-working people and lazy students.

The concept is easy to understand. Each student would choose in which subjects they want to go, in History, then Maths,and English, and if you hate P.E. , you are not obliged to go and have this lesson.

In this school, you only must have the Science and Languages lessons. All the teachers are great and kind and they must teach you well. The students could give marks their teachers so they can give their advice to the ones concerned.

That would be a great school for me, the school of my dreams !
