*giggles* I haven't even started yet and I'm bursting into awkward fits of laughter. o.O *clears throat* Alright Rose, you can do this. •-•

So, we all like water parks, right? ...okay, well, most of us do. I, personally, don't like the waiting in line part. Or the sun burn part. Or the cuts on the bottom of my feet from the scratchy flooring--okay, off-topic. Well, what I'm trying to say is, there's a water park where I live. Such a great attraction. It's by our zoo. :) And has some pretty nice/epic water slides [note: body slides are a no no. unless you want a scar on your back. -_- ] But, there's also a wave pool.

The Wave Pool:

The popular pool where people can swim around with others until the buzzer sounds [signaling the waves are about to be turned on] and all heck breaks loose. •-•

Caution, upon entering this pool you may get jammed into people, stepped on, flashed, drowned, and/or rudely shoved by people who think they are better than you.

See? Such a lovely placel. •-•

Okay, the real reason for this post is to tell you what I have 'invented'. It's called... *drum roll* ...whaling. Hence, the post title.

Whaling: The Back Story.

How was whaling invented? Well, I was in the wave pool, trying my best not to drown or knock into anyone when this kid comes through, telling us to "whale wave" or something when he say "wave". Or at least, that's what I thought I heard. o.O So, I was asking my nearby siblings how you "whale wave" and neither of them knew. So I demonstrated what I thought it was--which meant making weird sounds, falling back into the water, and giggles. It developed on it's own from there. •-•


To do this awesome move you must first make sure you can swim. Then, you must find the proper wave to "whale" into. But, of course, if you have no waves, doing this waveless shouldn't kill you.

Step 1: Make sure the area around you is free of other bodies. You don't want to whack anyone while you're whaling!

Step 2: When you see a wave approaching [and decide that it is a good time to whale] jump into the air. Now, wiggle slightly while gravity does the rest. You may want to close your mouth, so no water enters your body.

Step 3 [optional]: While whaling you may make weird whale-like sounds. Through text it look like this: MMMEEEERGH. Try it. You know you want to. •-•

And that, is how you go whaling. Quite silly. But fun.

[please enjoy a picture of a whale, whaling. thank you google, for the photo. :]


Who knew it could be so fun?

What do you think of "whaling"? o.O

thanks for reading. <3


  1. that looks like a lot of fun!! :D

  2. Niiiice!!! That definitely sounds like something I would do. So I totally tried the whale noise when I read it and now I can't stop laughing. Thanks for that. You're awesome. But you already knew that. I will continue to tell you that even though you obviously know.

    *The person you don't know who comments on your blog and ends up rambling every time*

  3. Wow, that is really creative. Sounds fun to try in a pool if you don't have a handy ocean nearby. ;)

    Also, I ADORE this blog design. ADORE.

    Love yourself,

  4. bahhhahaah XD
    I count stop laughing while I read this.
    Probably because I laugh about..erm everything XD
    We are whale people. XD

  5. *bursts into laughter* Oh Rosie! You know just what to say, to make my day! XD Thank you, for this. <3 I will try whaling next time I go swimming. :} You are just pure genius, yah know that?

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…


Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.

Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
