Rare Item Monday!

Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! Before I continue I want to thank Gracie for covering for me last week!

Summer is quickly approaching! Do any of you have any plans for summer? Maybe going to the beach or visiting a museum? Comment down below if so!


Todays Rare Item Monday are the Rare Infinity Glasses.

Thoughts: I really like this weeks Rare Item Monday! I like the quirky color choices. Although I really do like this item I would love to see some flowery clothing items released on Rare Item Monday. Hopefully that will happen soon!

Overall I rate this weeks Rare Item Monday an 8.


Here is todays verse.

"Speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. -Ephesians 4:15

You Guys: :slowly backs out of room: ooookay then gotta go! My fudge is burning judge! I mean uh my burning is fudge. I mean I think our mother is calling us goodbye! :zooms out of room in cartoon style:
Me: :stares: well ok then. :starts to write post


Ok that was suuuch a random intro. the whole Isaac Newton, hulk, tree, thud thing, was made up last night by Sarah, Lost, Swirl, and Me. I think we had to much sugar :D
It's been a week sense we saw our puppy, 3 more weeks :sigh:
Next week will be super busy because next week is my brother Graduation party so I'll have to schedule my post hopefully I don't mess it up and have the post posted at 1:30 at night XD
It's a good thing we don't have the puppy yet actually because if we had him then he'd absolutely freak out when everyone came.
Today is gonna be pretty busy we have Nas's violin recital and then I have to do some coping and writing, and a few other small things XD
Anyway I'll get to the bingo now it's a movie bingo!
My mind hasn't been able to come up with anything Animal Jam related lately so you might be seeing a few more bingo's.
I love doing bingo's though.
Also I'm super sorry this bingo is super lame looking. I didn't wanna have to go through going through a bunch of pictures, taking forever to pick one out, and then trying to make the words so they don't blend in with the picture
Here is the bingo
Also a huge thanks to Lostfairy for helping me come up with half of these squares! :D ^.^


And here are my answers
I'm going to go over each one actually to make this post longer :P

Really Looked forward to seeing a movie as soon as you saw it was coming out: Not really, if I knew about The Maze Runner then yeah I would have been like "ARRRRGH 2 YEARS TILL IT COMES OUT!?!?" But when they made TMR I was ..... :checks:  9 and wouldn't have been able to read it XD

Cried over a movie: Yup, the third Maze Runner. Couldn't handle it, the top of my sweater was soaked. 

Gotten angry over a movie: Yup!

Wanted to see a movie multiple times in one day: Yup, you can guess XD

Wanted to be in a movie: Are you kidding yes! I'd love to be in the Maze Runner. But um the chances of me still being there by the 3rd book would be super thin. 

Gotten sad after a movie ended: Yeah when LOTR ended I was really sad because it was so awesome and I really enjoyed watching it with my family!

Ever yelled at a movie character: Yup, Denethor, and Teresa, and Gally. 

Ever seen the same movie in 3 times in one day: Nope, but my dad did. he said it was blurring by the third time. I think he was like 20 when he did that. 
He did that with the forth Star Wars. 

Ever listened to the soundtrack of a movie: Yeah, I'm listening to Minas Tirith at the moment from LOTR 
I really love this choir part ^.^ 

Fallen asleep in the movie theater: No, one time my dad did though because he was tired, and the seats were super comfortable and they leaned back soo yeah I might have fallen asleep too. XDD 

Done a movie marathon: Not yet. 

Been asked to leave the movie theater: No 

Bough a movie poster: Nope, I don't really want to either because I just don't care XD

had a crush on a move character: yes

Ever had a dream where you were in the movie: Yup! It was awesome. ^.^ 

Ever wanted to change something in a movie: Are you kidding? Yes! XD

And this is just a bonus question
What movies are you looking forward to seeing? At the moment only I can only Imagine it's taking forever to come to the cheap theater .... 

Anyone who wants to do this bingo can! :D 

I hope you enjoyed this post! 
Peace Love Ninja's!

I'm So Sorry!

Update:
My parents are signing the papers for our new car! It’s a gray 2018 Chevrolet Cruze! It’s super nice, and is a really good price. My parents are signing the papers right now. Everyone has been super nice, and the sales lady is actually a Christian. It’s been a really cool experience. ^.^



Heeeeeey guys! Graciepopstar91 here, with an apology, and an explanation. XD

First of all, I'm suuuuuper sorry about my lack of posts. Pretty much all of it has just been procrastination, but also we've been so busy this week.

We started getting really busy on Friday. Friday was my moms birthday, and we went out to lunch, and then went to a clothing store. Then that night we had Bible study, and we always get out of Bible study around 9:00 or 10:00 PM.

Then on Saturday, my grandpa came into town to spend the weekend with us, since Friday was my moms birthday! We had plans to go out to lunch and then go shopping, but it didn't really go according to plan. We got in the car to head over to this pizza place we wanted to go to for lunch, but the car wouldn't start. Thankfully, we got this handy-dandy little phone charger, that also has plugs on it to jumpstart your car. We jumped it, then headed over to the pizza place. After lunch, we got in our car to head over to this outdoor mall, but the car wouldn't start again. We jumped it yet again, and my dad figured out we needed a new car battery. So mom called the place we got the car battery from, then headed over. Thankfully the car battery was under warranty though. There's a mall attached to the place we got the battery from, so we went in there and shopped a bit. They got it done pretty quickly, then we headed home. Buuuuut we noticed the check engine light was on in our car.

On Sunday, we just had church and my aunt came over, but we're all super tired on Sunday's, since we have to get up really early. So because of that, and since my grandpa was over, I didn't post.

I can't even remember what happened on Monday... XDD

Tuesday we just had Woman's Bible study, and that was pretty much it. My dad went to the movies that night with a guy from church, but nothing exciting happened then. XD

Then Wednesday. We left the house around 9:30 AM to go to me and my moms eye doctor appointment. When we came to the eye doctors, I had to use the bathroom, so we asked the lady at the front desk where it was. She said it was out of service, so we'd have to use the bathroom at one of the businesses near the eye doctor. We went into a sporting goods store, and the cashier said that it was in the very back of the store in the shoe department. So we go back there, and mom goes into a place that says 'Employees Only'. XDD Someone sees us, and asks if we're looking for the bathroom. He redirects us to an area two doors down from the place we were in. After that, we went back to the eye doctor and we go back for our appointment. After they did the first round of tests, they had me read the letters from the screen to test my eyesight. Well, everyone reads English left to right, right? For whatever reason, I was reading the letters right to left. I have no idea why. XDD I was so embarrassed. After our eye appointment, we went and had lunch at Whole Foods. Then we went over to visit my parents friends mom who's in rehab, recovering from pneumonia. Then we went over to the bank, Starbucks, then to buy flowers at the grocery store. Then we took the flowers over to a lady in our church who was in labor! We went around 3:00 PM, but she had her baby around 7:30 PM last night. ^.^ After we visited her, we decided to go to the car dealership, because hot air was coming out of our vents. We went over, and they said they were closing soon, but we could get a rental car and leave it over night. We decided we'd just wait and take it in later in the week. We headed back home, but then the car started overheating. We flipped back around, and headed back to the dealership again. We got a rental car, left it in the shop, and headed back home.

Now today. We had to go to Costco, but right before we were going to leave the guy from the car dealership called, and said to get everything replaced it would be almost $4,000. We got a different rental car, and extended the date on it till Monday, so we can get some stuff figured out, and since it will be until tomorrow till they figure out exactly what's going on. Obviously, we can't afford paying $4,000 dollars in repairs for an old beat-down mini-van. XD So, we're going to need to get a new car. It'll be kinda sad seeing it go, but after all the problems we've had with it, it probably won't be too bad. Not as bad as Cherry. Ehehehe.
I think..
Meep I might cri.
So..
PLEASE DONATE YOUR MEMORIAL MASTERPIECES TO GRACIEPOPSTAR91. :D

It was a light blue Hyundai mini-van...

Not my picture, found on Google

---

Even though all these car problems haven't been fun at all, but God's been getting us through this. As Paul said in 1 Peter 1:6 (NIV),

-

 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.

-

We need to always rejoice when we face these sorts of things. They may be difficult and stressful, but no matter what, we should rejoice. Why? Because God is still with us through it, and somehow, someway, it will work out in the end.

---

What has your week been like? How have you seen God working through it? Or, how have you seen God work through previous experiences? I'd love to hear your stories!

---

God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.


P.S. I also must apologize to Purplesnowie, Housemom418, and Housemom322. To Purplesnowie, I completely spaced editing you a picture for winning the Scripture egg hunt! I'll try to work on that when I get some free time. And to Housemom418 and Housemom322, I'm so sorry I still haven't read your stories from the story contest! Hopefully when all this slows down I'll be able to get on these. I'm so sorry you've had to wait for a while!

Jammer Chibi -- Purplesnowie!

Heyooooooooooo, Jamaasians!

Karalee here!



This week's Jammer Chibi is Purplesnowie, the first person to request a drawing on my last post!

She wrote:





And so, I found a base from Pinterest (I'd give credit to the artist using a link but I didn't see one attached to the picture) and took a (terrible) reference photo....





Then lineart, and a better reference pic....





And finally -- done! All colored, with a transparent background! I hope you like it, Purplesnowie!





If there's one thing I would keep no matter what, it's the feet -- I feel like they turned out really well. If there's one thing I'd change first, it'd be altering the proportions/position of the Rare Nerd Glasses and the eyes, because I drew the eyes without planning for the glasses I would add later.



Well, that's all I've got for this week! Tune in next time to see a Jammer Chibi featuring Binx1184!



 Tell me if you'd like to request a Jammer Chibi of yourself or of a buddy! Just copy-and-paste to fill out this form in the comments!

Fabulous Fez Day Returns!

Hey guys! Graciepopstar91 heeeere, filling in for Coolcat! How are y'all doing today? My grandpa was spending the weekend with us, since Friday was my moms birthday, and he just left this morning. My grandpa also brought with him his Shih-tzu!


Isn't he cuuuute? It's funny, when he gets excited, or when we're going to leave the house, he stands up on his hind legs, and waves his front paws up and down. XD

Anywho, without further ado, let's get started with todays post!

---


Today's rare item is located in Jam Mart Clothing on the 5th page, and is being sold for 800 gems! It's color scheme is purple and yellow.

According to AJHQ, today is Fez Day on Animal Jam!


If you were active in the Animal Jam community in 2016, you may recall AJHQ having a fez day contest. I posted about it November 8th 2016 on AJC,


I believe this was the first time AJHQ ever had a buddying contest, or gave out a contest plaque. I remember I waited in AJHQ's den for so long, wearing a green fez hat. XD I'm pretty sure that was the day I met my friend Annabellle!

It's kinda fun that AJHQ is making these little unofficial 'holidays', even though it seems this one landed on a different day then it did in 2016.

---

What do you think of todays RIM? Be sure to comment down below!

---

Here's todays Bible verse!

Lamentations 3:32

Though he brings grief, he also shows compassion because of the greatness of his unfailing love.

It's sometimes hard to understand why a loving God would bring grief on us, but it might be for us to grow, and for His incredible plan to unfold. Sometimes these things are just mysteries, and we might not be able to understand them. But no matter what, God has a reason for it. God has a reason for the grief and pain. Maybe it's for us to be able to relate to others, and help them get through exactly the same thing we were facing.

God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.

Stay positive, be yourself, and spread God's Word everyday!


P.S. I'm so sorry I haven't posted for the past week, and haven't announced the winner of the story contest! I haven't even read the stories actually. o.O I'll try and read them this week!

You'll never guess

First of all I want to say to everyone (mainly people like Swirl and Lost who thought I'd be on this afternoon/evening)
Around I think 2:00 My mom and dad were like we're going somewhere get ready and let's go. And it was going to be a 2 and a half hour trip to where we were going. But they didn't tell us where we were going. I thought we were going horse back riding :P 
The trip to the mystery place was pretty good, mom gave me and Sarah some snacks along with her phone so we could listen to music.
Anyway I'm just going to skip ahead because I only have a few minutes and it's already exactly 9:00 
Dad pulled up to this house and it had a sign "Husky Kennel's" and I thought "woah did we drive all the way here to just look and pet huskies? :O"  
So we followed the person to the kennel's and I was super excited because I knew I'd knew I'd get to pet a husky and I'd never pet one. 
The person showed us the nursery the puppies were sooo cute. We were looking at them and the person showed us this certain little and I thought "so cute! ^.^" But then my dad said something strange "So this is the litter we're ..." 
"Yes" The person said.
I just thought "Wait WHAT?!" I thought about it for a minute and then I totally forgot about it because next we walked into the main kennel where all the huskies who were male and not expecting puppies and all that that. Again they were alll so cute and they barked for a little bit but then they quieted down which my mom and dad said was a good sign. 
Anyway we went back into the nursery and then the big reveal.
































WE

ARE

GETTING


HUSKY

PUPPY








YES YES YES YOU HEARD IT RIGHT NO JOKE 


WE ARE GETTING A HUSKY  I NEVER EXCEPTED IT I HAVEN'T EVEN ASKED FOR ONE FOR AWHILE 
I WAS FREAKING OUT SO BAD. ME AND SARAH KEPT LOOKING AT EACH OTHER LIKE "OMG OMG OMG ODMFHAS HFDKJSHFAK JDSHFKJAHSD KL WE'RE GETTING A DOG!?" 
SO WHILE THE PERSON AND DAD WERE TALKING (ok I'll stop with the caps SORRY! oops) 
Me and Sarah were talking about names and we both noticed the puppy kept yawning. First Sarah said "Oh how about Deyawn?" 
Then she said (Swirl can you guess?) "OO HOW ABOUT ADAM YAWN" Me, "I know your a Owl City fan and so am I but, no" XDD
So we signed papers IT'S OFFICIAL 
We get our NEW PUPPY in 4 weeks!!! That is also how long it'll be till I can sleep again. 
I'm just flipping out so bad guys. Help me. My mom and dad kept saying we didn't have the room or time, and that their expensive!
Then again they have been talking about the giant tax returns too. 
ANYWAY WOO HOOO I'M GONNA DIE! YOU SING IT ADAM CLAP UR HANDS! 
Oh I almost forgot my Dad said we get to do everything for it (fine with me!) but he get's to name it. And he named it Trump. 
ANYWAY I GTG NOW GOOD BYE GUYS GONNA GO DAY DREAM ABOUT MEH NEW PUPPY

EDIT: HERE IS A PICTURE OF TRUM TRUM (Yes I already have a nickname XDD)

He's only 3 weeks old btw ^.^
And Sarah found some pictures of him on the person's Facebook

The Daily Explorer is RUINED

Hello Jammers! Trying to post a little earlier, sense I have swimming lessons later today! and Ja says the 2nd pool is normally exhausting so.. xD 

Has anybody noticed that.. there are no comments, ANYWHERE on the Daily Explorer? 

Yes, it does this glitch sometimes. But now, it is for real, as it has not been 'fixed'. So is it even a glitch at all? I mean, Animal Jam.. if you haven't notice there are no comments for.. quite some time, uh something is wrong.
The Daily Explorer has been falling downhill sense AJHQ removed DE names, and  then their initials. (Though eventually they let us use DE names again, I had no idea why they didn't for a while. It made no sense.)   OH AND GUESS
WHAT
AJHQ 
USE TO HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOUR
AND 
AND
ACTUALLY GIVE REAL REPLIES  :OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I found a few comments that Pinpun saved on the Animal Jam Sage .  

GASP GASP GASP









 

RIP AJHQ's Sense of Humor and Helpfullness 2018 (Actually mid 2017 I think)  I mean, lets be honest, you could  send an email to AJHQ and mention the word hack anywhere and AJHQ would probably bring up that whole recover your account thing, I mean no disrespect to AJHQ however it may seem that way oops 



But, it just really needs to stop, once my friend Lostfairy  made a comment about this telling AJHQ about how she's noticed their lame replies, and they got better! For... like.. a week?  
Then there is this comment (THANK YOU LOSTFAIRY!)
OH WOW 
I- OH MY
I NEVER KNEW..
THAT.. THE RARE ITEM MONDAY..  WAS..
IN..
ANIMAL JAM!?!?
WHO KNEW RIGHT?!?!
I THOUGHT
WOW
I THOUGHT IT WAS IN CHICKEN SMOOTHIE
*goes to CS to look for RIM* 
FOUND IT :D *clicks* 
YAY I got meself some noice lil shoes! 
COME BACK OLD MODERATORS:
SK, KB, HM, AH, AND MOREEEE
And that, AJHQ. Is how you do NOT answer replies!   And what makes me annoyed, is instagram.
Its the new Daily Explorer, which is NOT right, younger kids, who need REAL help not with just some stupid contest, dont normally HAVE phones! (I DONT HAVE A PHONE) And instagram is only for phones, it is just, IRRITATING!  




This post may come out rudely but really AJHQ, if you read our blogs you would bring back the comments, the initials. 




Jammer Chibi -- Patches1020!

Heyoooooo, Jammers!

Karalee here!



It's, like, insanely late to be making a post (and that means a LOT coming from me), so I'll have to keep this one short.



This Jammer Chibi is of Patches1020, who requested a drawing with the help of his buddy Snowlondon! 😊



Here's a screenshot of the references she sent me....





...And here's the adorable base I used for the chibi body! I chose the one on the left. (Found on Pinterest, the artist signed their work and put their Twitter handle on it.)





And -- *drumroll please* -- here's the finished design! Tadaaaaaaa! 😆



I forgot to ask about his hairstyle when I requested information about what Patches' chibi should look like, so I took a stab at guessing a hairstyle. Is it okay, Patches? (Or Snow?)

P.S. It's off to the side because I made it really big so Patches can save it at high resolution. You just can't tell that there's a huge section of transparent photo space hanging off the edge of the text...box...page..thingy.

...I'm tired.



Here's a bonus GIF of a brave volunteer getting hit in the face with a water balloon. For science, I'm sure.



(Heehee there's a little shred of balloon left stuck on his nose)



Welp, that's all for this week! Tell me if you'd like to request a Jammer Chibi of yourself or of a buddy! Just copy-and-paste to fill out this form in the comments!

Rare Item Monday!

Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! Remember how last week I talked about seeing baby animals? Well so far I have seen a lot this week! I have seen a turtle, sandhill cranes and their babies, and probably the most exciting an alligator! Have you seen any wild animals as spring is approaching? Comment down below if you have!

But for now lets start off with todays Rare Item Monday.

Todays Rare Item Monday is the Rare Ballet Shoes!

Thoughts: I really like todays Rare Item Monday! I think ballet shoes are a great addition to the game. They can be used for any outfit, or for any event! I also like the blue and red colors that AHJQ used.

Overall I rate this weeks Rare Item Monday a 10!

Comment down below what you think of this weeks Rare Item Monday.

Here is todays verse.

"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law." -Romans 13:8

As always, bye Jammer's! And ~Jam On!~

Love Your Enemies, And Pray For Those Who Persecute You: Part 1

Hey guys! Sorry this post is so late. After procrastinating about posting all day, I'm finally here. XD

Without any further procrastination, let's get going with todays post, entitled, 'Love Your Enemies, And Pray For Those Who Persecute You: Part 1'. It's going to be slightly like my post that I did a while back called 'I'll Love You... When/If/Then', but slightly different.

---

Photo credit: Bible.com


Loving your enemies is something that probably sounds strange, and the complete opposite of what you want to do. When someone does something wrong to us, our automatic reaction as humans is hate. We just want that person to "get a taste of their own medicine", and see how that would feel to them.

But the Bible says that's not how we should be. Matthew 5:43-45 says,

-

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

-

I just read 1 Samuel, and am currently reading 2 Samuel, and it's crazy how King David still showed love and kindness to Saul's family, even though Saul wanted to kill David. That's an amazing example of loving your enemies.

I'm sure it wasn't easy though. In 1 Samuel 24:4 it says,

-

The men said, “This is the day the Lord spoke of when he said to you, ‘I will give your enemy into your hands for you to deal with as you wish.’” Then David crept up unnoticed and cut off a corner of Saul’s robe.

-

David might of been tempted to kill Saul, after all David had been through because of him. But he didn't. How did he resist that temptation?

David was a man of God, and knew that Saul was the Lord's anointed, to be king over His people, Israel. David probably knew Saul must have been anointed king for a reason, so he wouldn't dare to kill him.

Yes, even those who do wrong to us have a purpose in this life. God put them on the planet for a reason. It might be hard to see the reason through all the hurt they've inflicted on you, but they must be here on this earth, in your life, for a reason.

Even through all the pain, we have to realize they're people just like us. In Matthew 5:25 says how evil and rain comes on them too. They might not even realize they're just inflicting hurt, and evil, and rain on us. Even if they do, I'm sure they don't like getting hurt, evil, and getting rained on with problems. So we should never do wrong things back to them. 1 Thessalonians 5:15 says,

-

Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.

-

We might be tempted to repay wrong for wrong, but we need to resist that temptation, and just cover the people who hate us with love, and prayer.

Like I said in my 'I'll Love You... When/If/Then' post, we need to pray that they will change their ways while we love them, but not praying they'll change their ways so we can love them.

Who do you need to start showing love instead of hate to today? Pray and ask God about that.

---

On Sunday (orrrr next Thursday, all depends XD), part 2 will go up, which will be more about praying for those who persecute you.

Blogger Chibi -- Snowlondon!

Hellooooooo, Jammers!

Karalee here!



Last week, I asked for suggestions from you guy about the topic of my weekly posts, and the most popular request was -- drumroll please -- bloggers drawn as humans! Certain suggestions specified chibis, so that's what I drew. (Plus chibis are cute, and made of simple shapes. Easy for me to make, appealing to you to look at! Win-win! 😆)



When I was looking through my camera roll for inspiration, I saw a base with wings, and a picture of a certain Owl I know. 😉 The logical follow-up to that is a Snowlondon chibi!



I started with the wings base...





...and made a chibi rough sketch loosely based on its position.





This is the lineart (though in truth, I ended up linearting and coloring at the same time, and this is a pic of the completed lineart taken after the fact)...





...and this is the finished design, complete with a transparent background!





I hope you guys like it! Tune in next week for what will (probably) be another Blogger Chibi!

*waves* Bye!



PEACE!
LOVE!
NINJAAAAAAAS!

MOOSIC

Hello guys! Sarahkey8 with some
Image result for cow 
Moosic!! uhh yeah idk XD
So if some of you do not know, me, Ja, Pob, and Tox have a piano recital on Sunday after Church, which we have mentioned a little bit, it is our very first one so I am very nervous (Our previous teacher did not do recitals)  and Gracie said it would be okay to post the songs I will be playing! 
I took these videos last night and some of them still need practice so if something seems weird, that's why!(For example, the first key on Musette is too fast) 
Here they are! 

1. Shimmering Waters
 



                                                     2. Legend of the Lotus Blossom

3.Musette 

Comment Call: Do you play any instrument? How long have you been playing it, and do you do anything like recitals?  

Have a good day!

Rare Item Monday!

Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! As spring is approaching the weather is warming up, flowers are blooming, and newborn animals are being spotted! I love to see all the baby wild animals in my neighborhood each spring! What is your favorite part about spring?

But for now lets start off with todays Rare Item Monday.

Todays Rare Item Monday is the Rare Frying Pan Hat!

Thoughts: Just because April Fools is over doesn't mean that the silly RIM items are gone! This week AJHQ has given us yet another silly item, and I'm not complaining! I think its always fun to get still items in the game, that's what Animal Jam is about right? I also love the vivid blue color that they chose.

Overall I rate this weeks Rare Item Monday a 10! Comment down below what you think of this weeks Rare Item Monday.

Here is todays verse.

"The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven." -Hebrews 1:3

As always, bye Jammer's! And ~Jam On!~

Instrument Tag!

Me: It snowed again ....
You Guys: YIPE! :runs and hides blow torch:
Me: Nah I'm in to much of a good mood to do something like that :D Early morning, listening to calming music, thinking about the awesome time I had last night talking with Koolest, Lost, Swirl and Sarah. And how they tried to kill me with adorable pictures of otters! THANKS A LOT GUYS XDD
I got so hyper I actually ran 2 laps around the house in the dark in 2 minutes. And literally screamed into a closet ... and jumped up and down 15 times trying to shake of the hyperness. Hehe totally NOT obsessed with otters lately!! 
Ahem, moving onto other things ...
It's April already!
Which means March/ #FocusingonGod is over too which I am partly glad because like I said in my last post I am sooo bad at those kinda things. DX
But I honestly truly did like the idea!

For today I made up this tag! I've been listening to a lot of lyricless music and it made me ask these sort of questions!

1. Do you play a instrument?
Yes Piano! I've been taking lessons for I think 3 and a half years now.

2. What is your favorite instrument(s)?
Hmm maybe the violin or the fiddle/stringed instruments.

3. Why this particular instrument?
You can make so many kinds of music with them!
A chasey theme,
A nice calm theme
Intense theme.
Pretty much anything XD
Just combine these instruments with things like trumpets and drums and you've got The Maze Runner Theme!  So many songs!
Also there is a stringed instruments in like every song I listen to XD


4. What is one of your not so favorite interment?
The Saxophone

5. Why do you not like this instrument?
I just don't like how it sounds  And the songs I've heard with the saxophone in it. Have been songs I really really don't like. :/

6. If you could learn any instrument instantly what would it be?
Piano, and yeah I am playing that now. But I wish I could learn a lot faster XD
If not Piano then Violin.


7. If you could learn any song on that instrument what song would it be?
THIS  (By the way the real version is a lot cooler XD) 
I looked on Amazon and all over, and there is no piano book or sheet music for it!! I am soooo not happy about that ...
Oh and there's also no tutorial so grrrrrr
And then a second song I currently wanna play I would really really wanna learn on it would be Sanctuary which actually has a lot of piano in it. And it's my Mom's favorite song :P

Speaking of Piano I have a recital coming up. I am sooo nervous because it's my first. We switched to a new teacher. Our older teacher didn't have a recital because she had way more students.
So yeah. Super nervous XD

Peace love ninja's!

The Official Animal Jam Blogger Tag, And Housemom418's Birthday Party!

Helloooo everyone! I refuse to use my AJ intro If you can't tell, I'm not very happy about doing an Animal Jam post. XD I don't know- I'm just really tired of doing Animal Jam posts. After doing the #FocusingOnGod posts, that's truly what I want to write about. So, of course on Animal Jam Community I'll be doing Animal Jam posts, but I think on here I'll mainly be doing Christian blog posts. I have no idea if anyone likes reading it, but if I'm doing it to God's glory, and God has placed this on my heart, I'm sure it's for a reason to reach someone out there.

Let's get going with todays post. ^.^

On Sunday, Violet86271 put up a new tag, called 'The Official Animal Jam Blogger Tag', so today I'm going to be answering that!

---


1. My username is Graciepopstar91! I'd love to change it to like, FlamingArrow55 or something, but I've had Graciepopstar91 for so long, it's just what everyone's used to. Plus if one of my buddies saw my username was 'FlamingArrow55' they would probably have no idea who I am. XD

2. I started blogging for this blog on June 15th 2015! I kinda started blogging before that, but I'll explain more about that in the seventh question.

3. I write for this blog, Animal Jam Community, The Teens Guide To Animal Jam And More, and Flaming Arrow For Jesus! I'm planning to write more posts on Flaming Arrow For Jesus soon. ^.^

4. Yes I do! I have this blog, The Animal Jam Friendship Community, and my more IRL blog is Flaming Arrow For Jesus.

5. Well, technically on October 4th it will be four years, but again, I'll explain that more in question 7. XD

6. Honestly, I don't really know. It's been so long. I just thought it would be cool I guess.

7. Weeeeeeeell... I used to have my own little 'blog' that I would email to my parents and nana about Animal Jam, then I decided to ask my mom if I could have my own actual blog. She said that my dad knows how to work WordPress, so I could use that. I agreed, and started a WordPress blog on October 4th 2014, and I kept up with it for about a year or less. It was a Christian Animal Jam blog. Then my friend Sweetraspberry got a blog through blogspot, and I thought blogspot would be much better than WordPress. She had a really nice format, so I wanted something like that. My mom let me get a blog through blogspot, and that's when I made this blog, The Animal Jam Friendship Community! At first it wasn't really a Christian blog, but later I started adding Bible verses and such. I started writing for Animal Jam Community July 19th 2016. About one or two years before that, I applied to become a blogger for AJC, but I don't know, I just didn't feel right about it. I deleted my application, but then a long while after that, I decided to apply again, when just a few people were writing for AJC, and Arcticstar8404 was the admin. She accepted me, and I've been blogging there ever since! I got my position as an admin on AJFC because- well- I started this blog. XD And I'm just an author on AJC. ^.^

8. I've been playing since September 3rd 2013, so, it will be five years this year!

9. Hm... I guess my least favorite thing is when conflict or drama comes up. Y'know, like when that whole Julian2 thing went down, or several years ago when people were bullying me. And probably my favorite thing is with blogging, that blogging is such a great opportunity to tell people about Jesus throughout the whole world!

10. Uhm.. Probably every single time I asked one of my friends if they wanted to write for my blog. I loved seeing their reactions. XDD

11. Welp, my intro on here is kinda always changing, but I used to do, "Hey Jammers! Graciepopstar91 here!" a lot, and for my outro I include a Bible verse, and "God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully." Which as I said when I first started using that, is a quote from Louie Giglio's book, 'Goliath Must Fall'. ^.^

12. (Please don't be mad if I don't say you XD) My favorite blog would probably be.. MY BLOG. MWHAHAHA. Okay no, even though I do like my blog. XDD I really like Animal Jam Artists Collab! I like seeing all the art on there. They're all such talented artists! And, this is kind of a blog, but it's not Animal Jam related. It's called The Christian Beat, which has a lot of the new Christian music news on it! Aaaand I'm not saying who my favorite blogger is. (:

13. I guess just the fact that I have the chance to make Christian posts, and possibly reach someone for Christ. 😊

14. Christian posts for sure!

15. Christian posts again.. XD

Thanks, Vi!

The Official Animal Jam Blogger Tag!

Hello there Jammers! IT SNOWED
A LOT
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *screams into bag*
Ahem ahem
Anyways
TIME FOR A TAG
That Violet8627  made, called The Official Animal Jam Blogger Tag!







1. Sarahkey8

2. December 1st, 2016 was when I did my first guest post on this blog, because I won a story contest, and thenn I think... December 7th was when I officially became an author and did my first post.

3. This blog, (of course XD), the AJAC and AJC!

4.  I really would like to have an IRL blog to post about books and probably a bit of AJ, but I am not able to unfortunately.

5. Almost 3 years now I think!

6. Back when the DE moderators had personality  initials, I  was/still am, AJ Adventurer, and there were two other people with 'DE' names, DXplorergirl,(Karalee) and Nature Girl (Graciepopstar91) And Snowlondon, who was.. the insanelyaddictedtocommentingcommenter, (correct me if I'm wrong Snow XD!) and Frozenlover/IPSlover*cant get on aj to check the numbers* And I found out Gracie had a blog and started reading it, and thought it was awesome! And then I found more blogs, though actually,  The AJW was the first blog I ever read, because  I was looking up something about AJ toys, and found this post!

7. Karalee and my sis, Ja983 became authors, on the AJFC, and when I won a story contest Gracie let me become one! For the AJC, Arctic was holding auditions, and picked me, and for the AJAC, Crazcatlover was holding auditions, so I filled out the forum and she picked me XD

8. A little more then 4 years!

9. My favorite thing is THE JAMMERS. Bloggers don't have fans, their readers are friends. And my least favorite thing is when people quit blogging for youtubing.

10. Hmm.... cookie clan.. crazy roleplay, talking about 'fruits', talking about books for a long time (Maze Runner and Warrior Cats come up a lot.. XD)

11. The Crazy Swirl Outro, anddd my outro just depends, normally its just goodbye, I use to have something like    Stay safe, Jam On, Play Wild, and remember God made you!  Byeeeee!  
Idk what happened to that, XDD(And lately I've been forgetting my signature, oops)

12. 'All Bloggers are created equal.' Somebody please make an old fashion masterpiece like that... XDD

13. Everybody who supports me in blogging!

14. Theories, funny things people say, glitches, and random things I notice! (And tags!)

15. I love to read theories, funny things people say, unreleased items, glitches, unreleased toys, and toy reviews! 


 This was an awesome tag Vi!    One of my favorite tags I've ever done XD!
Have a nice day!
