Bunnys

4- Goats, okay you think I am wierd. But once at my friends house, (She has a HUGE yard, its like a forest OMG!) she has lots of animals, like chickens, goats, bunnies, stuff. That's where I held the bunny too, but anyway, she had a baby goat and I picked it up. It really liked me, and it was fun, until it’s mom bit my shirt.

5- I actually kind of like parrots, because last summer (2014)I was at Los Angeles or Vegas because i went to both I forgot which this happened at. Anyway the hotel we stayed at had some people with parrots and we got to hold them and take pictures. It was awesome, they were beautiful.

The Guide to Revision

Hey guys! Sorry for not blogging for a while! Today I'm gonna tell you how to revise for a test, as I'm having an RE (Religious Education) test soon! I also done a Guide to Change post....So If you wanna check it out, click here Hope this helps!



So lets open the Guide to Revision!


Section 1: 

If you have a test coming up, OF COURSE YOU NEED TO REVISE! I mean....If the teacher hasn't told you to but you think you should...STILL REVISE! It's an important thing to do because you don't want those levels/grades dropping! You want to be progressing....Right? So if you're having trouble with revising...This book is GREAT FOR YOU!

Step 1: Make sure to have paper to write on! This is sacred because where else are you going to put your notes on! In my opinion, if you put your information on a computer....It's not worth it! I mean, wouldn't it be much easier if you were able to keep your revision notes with you without logging on to a form of technology? 

Step 2: Get a lot of information! For example, I'm doing an RE in which I have to write about a religious festival and then compare it to another! I also have to go into history about the festival! So if you want to get a good grade, you MUST get loads of information! You can even get some that your teacher is not expecting! :)

Step 3: Make a quiz for your family and friends to test you on! Like what I've done! Make it challenging! In my RE test I'm focusing on the Hindu Festival Diwali/Divali! And I'll tell you what, It's pretty hard remembering how to spell the names of the people included in the Rama and Sita story!

Step 4: Don't panic! When you're revising, It's very important to not get stressed out! Overall....It's only a test! If you put effort into it, then you'll succeed!

Step 5: REVISE EVERYDAY! This is almost the most important thing in revision! You must revise everyday until the test otherwise you'll start forgetting and forgetting and forgetting and forgetting and forgetting and forgetting and forgetting and forgetting and TEST TIME! OH NO! I'VE FORGOTTEN EVERYTHING! HELP! SOS! 

When the day comes, quietly mumble all the information you've collected when revising! Try to revise a little more before the test! I know it seems like a lot! But it's worth! Then after you've done it, forget it, because there's nothing you can do to change what you've written! 

Hope you enjoyed this post everyone! Again i apologise for not posting for a while!

Heres a video to make you laugh!


Byeeeeeeeeeeeee

Chapter 6:


Dear Diary,

Today I had a vision. It was really blurry....I know, they always are, but this one seems to be bothering me a lot. The sky had turned green, black and blue. Then I saw people looking at it, and they were in a grey, dull place. That's all I could see. Whoever is reading this now, please work out my visions. 

I read that entry over and over again. Now that I knew my great grandpa had wanted to know what his visions meant, I had two reasons to keep the book safe. The war of course was still going on, but not near where I stayed. Oh no no no...We didn't stay in our grandparents' house, we stayed in a humongous house which was close to theirs. "Huey! Karen!" I boomed springing onto my bed with the Diary in my hand. "WHAT IS IT I'M IN THE SHOWER!" Huey shrieked, I heard water rapidly splattering onto the floor in the bathroom. "NEVER MIND. Karen?" Karen came in with her head down, her shoulders slumped down and her back hunched as if she'd already gotten her first grey hair! "Mummy swore at me!" she sobbed incessantly. I grabbed her by my arms and cuddled her until her wailing terminated. I hated this. I hated when my parents swore. It was unnecessary. "Why Karen?" I asked tutting after. 
"I stole mummy purse" I looked at Karen as If she was crazy. She looked at me the same way as if I was a lunatic. "KAREN! YOU CAN'T JUST STEAL SOMETHING THAT DOESNT BELONG TO YOU! THATS VERY BAD! IF YOU KEEP DOING THAT YOU'LL GET INTO BIG TROUBLE! AND IF YOU DO IT WHEN YOU'RE AN ADULT YOU'LL GO TO PRISON! DO YOU WANT THAT? DO YOU WANT TO BE IN A CELL AND EAT SICKENING FOOD!?" 

Silence.

"But Tia in my class done it? She stole the teacher purse?" I froze for a moment, remembering my best friend Tia. "Karen! You're scaring me, JUST DON'T STEAL IT IS NOT OK TO STEAL AND THAT'S FINAL IF YOU DO IT AGAIN....WATCH OUT FOR ME." I enjoyed saying 'Watch out for me', I knew that gave Karen a chill down her spine. But that was a good thing. As long as that didn't happen everyday...

Karen went nursery, Huey went primary school and I went secondary. All filled with people who's parents decided to break the law, and of course, our schools were behind the 'sawtoothed bush', otherwise we'd all probably go to prison. I arrived at school, Gretta, 'the year 7 bully' barged me as I was walking into the playground. "Do you mind?" I asked with great confidence.
"Oh sorry...I didn't mean to do that...ha of course I did!" she giggled flicking a strand of her hair back. "Well next time...Maybe you shouldn't do that to me, because I'd hurt you harder than anyone else has ever before..."
"Oh look who's talking! The girl who think that man who she calls her father is ACTUALLY her father! Ha! Hurt me harder than I'd ever before.....You're weak!" Gretta screamed, afterwards snorting with laughter.
"Oh look who's talking! It's not my fault you're so ugly...All you have to do is go to the Beauty Parlour " I sprinted home before she could get the last say. Even though I was supposed to going to my lesson, I was at home straining myself not to cry. 

Is this true? OF COURSE IT'S NOT!
What if it is? Ha! You know Gretta, she always lies!
What if it is? SHUT UP!

My legs leisurely dragged me to my parents' room. I couldn't stop them, my mind was boiling up. My heat beat fast. I was in a zone. I was in  a zone to find my birth certificate. 

At last. It was hidden under a miniature section of the wallpaper.

Tamera Hyland: Birth certificate

Born: UK, London

Hospital: St Mary's Hospital

Mother: Mariah Hyland

Father: Blue Mitchell

Gretta was right after all. My father was not my father. Well if he wasn't, then who was he? I shoved the certificate back to where it belonged, but my mother and father arrived, and immediately saw me hiding it under the wallpaper. "HI TAMERA! WHAT ARE YOU DOING UP THERE?" My mum called from downstairs. I pondered over things to say, should I saw nothing? Should I lie? Should I tell the truth? "HI DAD AND MUM, AND UM...I'm...I'm...Not doing anything?!"

"TAMERA WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DON'T LIE TO US. COME ON WE'RE YOUR PARENTS." Dad boomed. But I didn't know what to say to him. Who was he? Why was he here? I began to sob. "TAMERA!" My mum ran up the stairs and gave me a hug, "What's wrong? Was you ok when you got home after school?"

"GET OFF! LEAVE ME ALONE BOTH OF YOU!" I boomed and cried at the same time. My mum was jogging lightly up to me as I was approaching the door, but I shut it as If I didn't care about anything. I heard my father stomping up the stairs, butterflies fluttered widely in my stomach. I didn't want to speak to this man. This man who says I'm his daughter. Why is he here with me? The door swung open. "Tamera honey? What's wrong? I need to know this instance" his voice was firm and commanding. "YOUR NOT MY FATHER, THATS WHAT'S WRONG OK?" I shrieked gasping for air...

"MARIAH? SHE SAID I'M NOT HER FATHER, TALK TO HER FOR ME, PLEASE"

"No Jordan..."

"WHY? SO YOU DON'T CARE? IS IT TRUE OR SOMETHING...PHHH WHY WOULD I EVEN SAY THAT OF COURSE IT'S NOT!"

"Jordan..."

"EXPLAIN!"

"It's true...You're not her father Jordan...You're not."

"What?"

"Jordan I'm so sorry..."

"WHAT?"

"Jordan! You're not her father ok?"

"S...S....STOP JOKING AROUND! BE SERIOUS"

"Jordan you're not her father"

"MARIAH HOW COULD I NOT BE HER FATHER? WHO IS?"

"His name is Blue Mitchell...I found her on the doorstep....ok?"

"WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?! WAIT WAIT A MINUTE...THEN WHY DID YOU TELL ME I AM?!"

"Jordan I was stupid back then ok? I made a mistake. I'M NOT HER MOTHER EITHER! WHEN I FOUND HER ON THE DOORSTEP THERE WAS A NOTE ON HER SAYING THAT HE WANTS ME TO PRETEND I'M HER MOTHER!"

"MISTAKE?! THAT IS NO MISTAKE! SO WHAT AM I NOT KAREN AND HUEY'S FATHER EITHER? OH AND THAT'S WHY I WASNT AT THE HOSPITAL WHEN SHE WAS FIRST BORN!MARIAH YOU'RE AN IDIOT. I'M LEAVING..." Dad got his wallet from the white leathered sofa...And left...

"Jordan come back" My mum went out of the door and ran after him...

I couldn't believe it. Bretta was right after all....He wasn't my father....But worse than that....My mother wasn't either. I was nothing but a baby found on the doorstep....With a note from my father. I knew my parents would never separate though, they had told me from young, that no matter what they'd try there absolute best to raise their children with two parents...But they weren't even my parents. I heard Huey and Karen screaming their heads off...OF COURSE THEY WERE....They always got scared when they heard shouting. Swiping the arguing from my brain I picked up the diary and began to read...

Dear Diary,

Today I didn't have a vision...I just worked something out...Dreams are visions that need to be further investigated. Bye, That's all I needed to say!

But the thought of me not belonging to any of my parents hit me again. I began sobbing. Why should I be here? My dad might just be alive now? My parents arrived, all was calm, but the tension was broken by my strong words at the dinner table. "Are you Karen and Huey your kids either?"

"Yes they are young lady...Eat your food and don't talk to me with such nauseating attitude" Mum (of course) had said.

"Why should I eat my food? I shouldn't be here anyway. I want to go to my dad. I belong with him"

"WHAT? TAMERA NO OUR SISTER MUMMY?" Karen boomed. Of course she didn't know...She was too busy sobbing over silliness.

"No darling...She's not....But no worries...."

"Why can't I go? I'm not related to any of you. I want to be free"

"YOU WILL NOT GO YOUNG LADY. AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED SOMEONE WHO LEFT YOU ON A DOORSTEP CLEARLY DIDN'T THINK BEFORE DOING THAT MOMENT!" I slid my plate onto the floor....And left the house...

Hoped you liked it guys I worked REALLY hard on this post so enjoy!

Imme Kristiani's Guest Post

Such an amazing opportunity to write a guest post on Rukiya Spencer’s blog. Definitely going to make it count! xx

What is it feel like being a VLOGGER? like, speaking directly about how are you feeling at the moment? and being able to watch your 'life' again after a couple of years later? I do not know exactly. 

Yet, I am curious about it. I really, really completely want to know the feeling about it. and I think the only way to find out is owning a YouTube channel. 





So, I did. I made one. and So far, I have been uploading videos. (about DIYs, OOTDs, hairstyles videos, and so on) - But for an 18 year old girl, like me, I have to split my time and energy between school and vlogging. I found that vlogging is a bit more challanging for me because not only filming it on my own, but I also have to edit each videos nicely (on my own, too) so that people will enjoy them. 
Down to date, it is hard :')
However, the massive curiousity I have in mind about every single deets of being a vlogger is still there. So, I am just going to keep uploading videos from now on, so that I can overcome the curiousity. (For I know that you guys support me, I will enjoy the process) ^_^

Here is the link to my latest video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZ440eM2amQ
and these are some little peeks of my upcoming video! Stay tuned! ;)
Please kindly give my videos some thumbs up and subscribe my channel. I honestly work really hard on each videos that I have uploaded. But feel free to comment on the comment section there if you have any questions or some video requests. I appreciate everything. Everything <33 
From Bali, Indonesia – with love, Imme 


Ello...This is Rukiya speaking (and typing lol), thank you so much Imme for doing a guest post! This was perfect! :) Don't forget to join my Outfit Contest if you haven't already!

MIGHT have a blogging break

Hey guys...So as you can see in the title I might have a blogging break. I feel like no one bothers to comment on my blog or check for new posts except maybe a couple of people. Also I'm not very happy with blogging right now. However I will still chat in google + with my blogging friends and I will post Imme Kristiani's Guest Post. 

don't forget to join my Outfit Contest!
Other than that I don't know what else to say. I feel like no one would comment on this post anyway or probably not even see it so bye...
