Today I'm grateful for . . . Dungeons and Dragons. Or, to make it shorter, D&D. D&D is a role-playing game that involves paper, pencils, dice, books, and creativity. There is a DM (Dungeon Master) who creates the adventure and tells you what's happening around you at that very second. Then you have to role-play your character by saying what it does in that situation. From there on, you go on adventures, kill monsters, and try not to die. It's really fun and we have two groups that we play with regularly.
Today I'm grateful for . . . the Johnsons. Our family has so much fun spending time with them whether we're eating, playing games, or just hanging out. All of us kids have made up a few games that we love to play and are always inventing others. Whenever we leave, it hasn't been long enough. Here are a few videos we made with them last year on New Year's Eve.

30 Days of Gratitude- Days 12-13
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.
