Welcome to my blog!

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my blog, and I’m going to spend a little time here to tell you about me. Right now I’m 17-years-old and a junior in a small school. I like to spend my free time reading or writing, but at times I do watch movies and play video games like the BioShock series and Dishonored. I have a cat named Hobbs (my mom named him after Calvin’s imaginary tiger from the comic Calvin and Hobbes), a dog who is as old as I am, and a new hamster. Oh, and my mom’s cat too. Most of the time the things I write are short stories, but I hope to one day become a full-fledged novelist. I do incorporate LGBT themes into my stories mainly because I think it’s sad that there aren’t a lot of stories out there that have them, and I aim to change that. I recently got recognized by the President and CEO of EAST – which is the tech program I take – and received an EAST Exemplar coin. It’s rare that they give one of those out, and by rare I mean in the 9 years the program has been up in the U.S., they’ve only given out about 100. This blog is to share my stories and struggles with you, and I hope that maybe I can inspire someone through my posts.

P.S. You can call me Izzy, or by my pen name which is Elizabeth Lightwood. For some reason, I like that name so I’ve decided to use it.



So, Rainbow is a song by Sia that she did for the newest My Little Pony movie. Yes, I’m aware that’s a show for little kids, but I’ve seen it, and it’s not that bad, and the song for the movie is actually really good. I’m not really sure what it’s supposed to be about, but I still think it’s pretty cool nonetheless.



The Everdark Forest

Hey everyone, long time no see. I haven’t been that active in the past several weeks, and I’m really sorry for that, but I’ll try my best to get back on track. I know that on Monday’s I normally do a book highlight for a published author, but today I’m going to change that up and to my work today as a highlight. I’ve been getting really good feedback on this one, so I hope you guys will like it.

The Everdark Forest

The Everdark Forest is a story that I’ve actually been working on for a while now, which is a surprise considering I normally give up on my writings within a week or two. I’ve been working on it for almost a month, and I’m actually really proud of myself for it. I’ve gotten several compliments from my friends about it, and I just wanted to spread it around and hopefully get some more people to read it so I could get more feedback on it. I hope you guys have the time to read this and leave me a comment or two on what you like and don’t like. Thanks, guys!



I Was King – Japanese Ver. –

So just looking at the title you might think that this song is all in Japanese right? Actually, it’s not. Only three lines in the entire song are actually in Japanese. I’m trying to learn those three lines so I can sing along in the car with it sometime, but it’s slow going right now. I really like this song and it’s become sort of like my little theme song right now. I have the “Official Visualizer” as they put it, and it’s a really cute video. I hope you guys like it.



I Apologize

Hi everyone. I know I haven’t been on very often right now and I’m sorry for that. School has been a little crazy and so has home, so hopefully, things will settle down soon and I’ll get back into my routine on here. Again, I’m sorry for all of these, but I look forward to being on more often now.

The Bloodletter’s Daughter

The Bloodletter’s Daughter is a book set in old Bohemia and it follows a bathmaid who is also a barber-surgeon’s daughter.  She wants to become a physician, but women are not allowed to. It’s a very good and I’m rereading it right now. If you don’t shy away from the proper, not so middle school safe words, for the male anatomy, then I would say go ahead and read it, but if you don’t like that, then I wouldn’t recommend it. It really is a good book and I hope you guys will find it some day and read it for yourself.


Sound of Silence

Sound of Silence is a song that I just found, and I admit, it’s actually pretty good, I like it. I have never heard of Dami Im before, but it popped up on my YouTube feed so I thought I’d listen to it. I think it’s one some of you might enjoy, but that’s just me.
