30 Days of Gratitude- Day 8
Today I'm grateful for . . . Minecraft. One of my favorite computer games that my brother helped me discovered. The free version stinks, and the paid version is a bit expensive, but it is so worth it. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to get it, but my brother kept begging me to and he even offered to help pay for it, so I took up his offer and now I love it! I play almost every day. The point of the game is to take your character and adventure around a whole world, killing monsters, creating items, and building structures. You can play on survival mode (where you are able to die) or creative mode (where you have an unlimited supply of items, are invincible, and can fly), or on adventure mode (where you can't destroy or build anything and can die). You can play singleplayer or on multiplayer servers that other people set up so you can play with anybody. My favorite servers are the one my brother and I set up, a Hunger Games server where you go around and kill characters in arenas (which sounds horrible, but is really fun), and a server called Mine-RP which have super nice players and is a regular server where you build and kill monsters.

I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
