Be Happy

Leah and I were sitting together in her room this morning looking around on Facebook to see what’s going on with her friends. We came across this blog post written by Helen C. Escott, a hilarious blogger now turned author who is also living in Newfoundland. She talked about how she misses Facebook positivity. Cat videos, cute pictures of kids, etc. There are too many posts these days about negative things like Trump and… diarrhea. First of all, ew! Secondly, I agree with her about this. Every time Leah and I look on Facebook, there’s almost always someone posting something about Trump or how bad a day they’re having or something else negative. I want to see more happy posts, like the ones I put out! I am a very happy and positive dragon! I choose to focus on the good things in life. In two years of living with Leah, I’ve had so many cool adventures!

Leah took her best friend Peter to see James Taylor in concert as an early Birthday present and I got to go with them! Peter and I got a picture taken together after the show.

During the intermission of James Taylor’s concert I met him!!!

I love sharing my adventures with people on Facebook and now here on my blog! I hope that seeing what I’m up to will bring a smile to people’s faces. That I think is what Facebook should be about, sharing the good things and making people smile! I wish more people could think like that and refrain from posting so much negativity on Facebook! I understand that everyone has bad days, even me, but no one needs to know about your diarrhea!!!

Recycled Style

In Response to This weeks WordPress photo challenge

Start a new fashion, buck all the trends, emphasize integrity. What the hell is wrong with expressing yourself, for trying to be free!

I love recycling things and turning them into something to wear! Recycled fashion is very stylish I think! A month ago, my friend Leah found some string laying around in her bedroom that she wasn’t going to use and so she bunched it up and put it on my head!

Last summer, Leah and I had planned to go to a Christmas in July event downtown. There was going to be an ugly Christmas sweater contest! Leah had a few ugly sweaters in her closet, but I didn’t have one. Leah came up with a great idea! A friend of hers gave her an old sweater he didn’t want anymore and she turned it into my own ugly sweater! She cut off a sleeve, bought some felt, ribbon and bells and made me this!

“Billy Elliot” is opening very soon at the Arts and Culture Center! I was so excited when I heard that it was going to be performed here! I really wanted to audition! After all, Miss Wilkinson does say that it doesn’t matter your size, looks or talent, all you really have to do is shine! I figured why wouldn’t they let a short little stuffed dragon be Billy Elliot?! There’s a first time for everything! I immediately started looking for a tutu so I could begin practicing my ballet dancing! Leah let me borrow her white scrunchie! It’s just my size and looks a lot like a tutu! I thought it was perfect!

Ballerina Barbie gave me lessons and we practiced and practiced every day! In the end, I didn’t get the part, but that’s ok! At least I had a lot of fun trying! The show opens in two days! I’ll be in the balcony in my tutu on Saturday night watching the show! I’m so excited! It’s got an absolutely star studded cast! Kelly-Ann Evans, Phillip Goodridge, John Williams and Pete Soucy just to name a few! Also, congratulations to Jack Thistle who is playing Billy. You are an incredible dancer and singer! You’ll be a phenomenal Billy Elliot! Can you teach me some of your moves?

Like I said, recycling and re purposing old things can be fun and very stylish! You should try it too!
