A Day in GrenadaCan you imagine, waking up every morning, listening to the lapping of the waves against the sand, the soft, distant murmur of people playing in the water, or chatting at a bar. The feeling of the hot rays of the sun, gleaming down from above, the warmth felt all around from within your cozy blanket. The plushed pillow resting your revitalizing head.A Day in Grenada by MintyMintamin
You open your unweary eyes, and see serene, crystal-blue waters, with gentle sprays of ocean white. Sunbleached, wet sand glistening colors of every hue,blurring into a vibrant light lemon.Tall, dark, forested peaks sit in the background, ominous and beautiful, daring adventurers to climb its moss green hills.
As night rolls in, several places close for the night, and others open for the first time today. Cars stop roaming on the road, and nighttime stragglers walk towards the bars and restaurants. Orange lanterns and yellow streetlights lit up the hills across and the land beside. The world grows purple, blue, and black... yet still more i
The EndAhoy fellow pirates!The End by Black-Fedora-Pirates
As some of you already know, I have decided to shut this group down. I don't do this light-heartedly and I have discussed this topic on my private journal first before making this official announcement:
As you all know, the group has become awfully silent. Now, I don't want to blame anyone for it or make you feel guilty, so please read on.
It's a fact that the group has lsot activity. The only thing ensuring that there are still submissions are the prompts and let's face it: the majority are not really BFP related. I myself am no exception to this.
From my perspective, that has only partly to do with the busy lives of our members. I think the real reason is something else:
The group does no longer provide inspiration. Otherwise, with over 60 members available, there should be at least someone who has an idea for an adventure. I know I already asked what is most needed for the group to increase activity. But as far as I see the effectiveness of the last attempt to g
First name: I would rather not disclose this... but it starts with an I.
Middle name: Which one? There's Christopher, and Fletcher. My mother, and blood donor couldn't agree on a name. We usually only use Christopher though, as the other is His middle name.
Nickname: There are only three that people call me in real life. Peanut, which was how my head was shaped when I was little (Uncle wanted to call me Elliot Terrance, E.T.); Minty, don't ask me why people call me this in person... I don't really have a clue, unless they have somehow forgotten my name; and H2O, a nickname someone invented. Someone thought that when I rap, that H2O should be my rapper name. *shrugs*
Location: Florida... I thought I mentioned this?
Age: Recently turned 20... I'm no longer a teenager ^^
Height: 5' 9"; 69 inches; 175cm.
Zodiac sign: Hmmm... Libra, Dog.
However... with the 13th zodiac, Ophiuchus, it would be Virgo. My zodiac moon sign (yes... the moon also gives you a zodiac sign, based on where it is, where you were born, and when you're born) is Scorpio.
If you think of all of those... personalities start to look complex and 3D, yeah?
Any pets: Currently, none... There is a dog here, but he's not mine, he's my uncle's... and I don't like the little shit. Back at my parents' home, there's a rottweiler, and two brothers, one a golden retriever, and the other an alaskan sled dog of some breed. Well, that's what the brothers look like...
Favorite thing about yourself: How quickly I can warm up to people. I really do like being in a conversation. There's so much to tell, so much to learn.
Worst habit: I think the worse one... which bleeds into other habits... is the fact I hold grudges. Nearly everyone I know, I hold a grudge on, for one thing or another. Try as I might, it can't go away, even if I take action against it... the anger doesn't go. I guess it helps out, when I repeatedly forgive someone for unspeakably things... that eventually... I can't stand being around them anymore.
Fun fact: We've been trying (my entire family and I) to take care of my hair, but it kept getting more tangled, more knotted, and my scalp was more sensitive. Then along came my girlfriend, and she magically got my hair straight, and they're no more tangles or knots since I've met up with her. She knew that we were taken care of it wrong... My hair is long, curly, spiral ringlets... and my family thought using products for straight, short hair would make it better... when in fact, it contributed.
Hell... I'm not allowed to wash the damn thing anymore, except once a week! Conditioning it everyday, comb while in the shower to evenly distribute, sing in a merrily sing-song (wait, she was joking?) and only cut it from where the hair scrunches up to. Trying to cut it at even length makes it look wonky. WHY DO I HAVE SUCH CURLY HAIR!!!!!!
Identity, Sexuality & Personality
Sexual preference: Mostly Straight... Though... I could definitely love to have the feelings of the curves on a well-endowed man. Hehehe... playing with chests is always a fun thing.
Relationship status: Um... I'm happy in a committed relationship with Annie. Um... Well... why not, it's not like my brother reads these anymore *shrugs* I'm currently engaged to Annie. We're hoping to be married by 2016.
Though... our relationship is a strange one... We are both okay with the idea of going after other... sexual partners... as long as everyone accounted for knows what's going on. I mean... doesn't that sound wrong if you tried to steal another's heart, when your's belong to someone else?
"Early Bird" or "Night Owl": Both... Sometimes, I can do both, but very rarely. Mostly though, I'm a night owl.
Bath or shower: Shower... Though I wouldn't mind using my grandmother's one man Jacuzzi. Those jets feel *GREAT*
First thought in the morning: Is Annie okay? *turns to look at her* Awwww, she's sleeping.
Last thought before falling asleep at night: Usually something about me not getting enough sleep for the next day, something stressful that happened or could happen, or some other paranoid thought.
Do you work or are you a student: Currently, I work as a kitchen aide in a nursing home. It's amazing what some of these residents can get away with, that normally you get arrested for. I would love to start college though.
What do you do well: Hmmm... Write, Make and do puzzles and mazes,
Where do you see yourself in 5 years: I'll be in college, with a quaint little apartment, with a cute little dog (probably a black lab, or a husky) with Annie studying as well.
Habits (Do you…?)
Drink: Occasionally... like... once a month to once a week.
Smoke: only once... never doing it again DX
Do Drugs: . . . I was. . . tricked, with a brownie... I'm sooo glad I noticed what the fuck was wrong with it before I swallowed it. I must ask though... why does most of my classmates want me to do this stuff with them?
Exercise: nope... but I do enjoy sprinting through crowds, and running all around like a courier with an important parcel.
Have a go-to comfort food: Anything sweet. I absolutely enjoy eating sweets... though I can no longer taste it anymore. ;.;
Pretty much anything with a nice, soft, velvety texture... However, eating crab or shrimp is always better ^^
Have a nervous habit: My legs and arms would start shaking, my legs would bounce vibrantly. People think it's some sort of nervous tic, but frankly... it just helps with my stress and anxiety. I would either talk very quickly, to the point you can't understand between one syllable to another, or I would only answer with silence, speaking with maybe a few words.
What is your favorite…?
Physical quality in others: hmm... besides my fondness of long hair... I would say lips and eyes. I will wonder how their lips feel against my skin, how they would feel against mine. Eyes... well, much can be said for what you can see into someone's eyes. Whether it be the color of the forest, or of the ocean, and I'm talking about brown too. Annie and I both, normally... have pale grey-blue eyes, can't wait to see the blue in my children's u.u
Mental/emotional quality (in yourself): hmm... I think it is my happy pessimistic attitude, that can also flip to a sad optimistic... I try to make everyone happy *shrugs*
Food: Shrimp... I have a fascination for shrimp... I can kill a man, for shrimp OwO
Drink: Mountain Dew, or White Zin...
Animal: Arctic Wolf
Author/Poet: Edgar Allan Poe, of course ^^
welcome to the Land of Song and Passion|
a silly name for one so gloomy and dark
but it is my land, and as you can see...
there needs to be a lovely melody to play in this dank pit of despair
I will eventually "see" a way out of here, and then, what will happen next?
who knows, but I don't tend to stand and gawk at the stars and the dersites
hello random people on the internet... I am Mintamin, and if you want to call me by another name, please scroll to the bottom of this. . .widget?
*What is a widget? is that like a wedgie? I meant Wedge!
the reason I pick shadowstalker is because I follow the Path of Darkness, and I skulk around to help those in need, without being known...
it is my sole duty to help those on the Path of Darkness to follow their "heart" I will also lend a hand to those who follow the Path of Light, for some cant handle being in the Dark.
I am always your friend, until you double-cross me. so lets be friends.
I cant draw... though i wish i could with all my heart, soul, and blood. I am apparently a great writer, or so I'm told by my friends... though it got me in deep trouble at one point (no I'm not going to say what happen, I'll leave that to your imagination >;])
