Come right in, everyone! We’ve got pizza over there, drinks over there, and enough cookies to satisfy Cookie Monster himself.
Today, we’re celebrating because this blog has one more shiny award to add to its collection! Thank you, Ally, for passing on the Versatile Blogger Award.
You guys know the rules by now, I’m sure—this award asks for seven facts about yourself. I’ve been using the same seven facts for these award posts (which are still true!) but in the spirit of celebration and virtual partying, let’s share some new tidbits, shall we? Continue reading “Special Guest: Cookie Monster (Aka The Versatile Blogger Award)”
A shoutout to Tina at Written in Geek for giving my muse and I a break from writing. I can’t even remember when my last tag post was, which goes to show how long it’s been.
1) What frightens you the most?
As quoted from Sailboats & Bubble Tea (aka the Entertainer Blogger Award): Bugs with more than 4 legs. Bugs with no legs at all. BUGS.
2) Coffee or tea?
I wonder if you guys already know the answer to this. 5 Brownie Points to anyone who does! The answer’s literally one or the other, guys. Continue reading “The Rule of Eleven (aka The Blue Sky Tag)”
You: Where have you BEEN? Your blog’s been empty for over a week, no note, no posts!
Me: I know, I kind of disappeared—
You: You could’ve DIED, and I wouldn’t have known!
Me: Or I could’ve gone on vacation, but hey, tomato, tomahto, right? Continue reading “Weekend Coffee Share: Spontaneous Staycation”
A message from Rosema & myself…
Jade: Hello fellow bloggers, struggling humans, and friends! First off, a happy new year to you all!
Rosema: Some of you may have started 2017 ready for our next Monday Morning Melts Prompt, and noticed that there were none.
Jade: Rosema & I came to the difficult conclusion over the holidays that we will not be continuing our Monday Morning Melts event. The reason for that is because we both are having trouble juggling our respective Real Life Responsibilities *shakes fists in vain*. Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts Is Saying Goodbye”
Me: One Peppermint Mocha for you, One Green Milk Tea for me.
You: Green Milk Tea? Is your body even supposed to consume drinks that are green?
Me: It’s green tea blended with milk, and delicious. Besides, the person drowning their body in sugar shouldn’t be criticizing my drink.
You: Drowning in sugar…or drowning in flavor? I prefer to see it as the latter.
Me: *laughs* Well, I suppose that’s one way to ring in the new year. Continue reading “Weekend Coffee Share: Baby Steps”
Rosema: After being MIA for the past week, I am back with dear Jade for Monday Morning Melts! 🙂 After the Christmas festivities, let me treat you with yet again another sweet sweet song. 🙂
I have written a fiction titled “Quite Like You” based on this song. When you read its lyrics, and when you hear it playing and being sang, you cannot help but hope that someone will sing this song for you someday. ❤
So much with dreamy words, here it is, friends!
PROMPT: The Script – Never Seen Anything “Quite Like You”
When it’s right it’s more than right
Cause you feel it more than feel
I could take this moment now
Right into the grave with me Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #7”
Jade: Do you feel it? The beautiful lights, the easy smiles, and the hint of magic in the air that always makes the holiday season one to remember.
Instead of choosing from one of the classic Christmas songs, I’m offering lyrics this week from a song that’s a little quirkier. To everyone still scrambling for that perfect Christmas gift, I hope this song is a reminder that the perfect Christmas gift is something money can never buy.
Happy Holidays to all of you, my dear friends! I wish you all a season of contagious laughter, unconditional love, and magic to last a lifetime.
PROMPT: Humbug – Owl City
I’m ready to wrap that perfect Christmas gift
But I haven’t found it yet
‘Cause I don’t have a clue what to get you
So I’ll give you my heart, I hope it’ll do Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #6”
He could be the reason I learn to love mornings,
The way the sun plays with the shadows,
The way he smiles when I open my eyes.
I could be the reason he stays up all night,
The way the moon lights up our dance floor,
The way we laugh until sunrise.
We could be each other’s first,
First love that endures past tomorrow.
We could be the happy ending,
But now we’ll never know.

Some of you may have noticed that Monday Morning Melts took an impromptu break last week. Rosema is back this week, however, with lyrics that we hope will melt your heart like no other.
Rosema: Most of the time, love is expressed and felt through physical intimacy. Touch. Kisses. Hugs. But how about loving someone from afar? How about loving someone you haven’t seen yet? How about falling for someone’s soul residing in a body thousand miles away from you? Will it be a gamble worth committing? Will it feel like a heart’s solitary suicide?
This week, let’s delve the idea of long distance love. (Which is now for me, the purest love of all). ❤
PROMPT: “One Sweet Love” – Sara Bareilles (lyrics)
The earth that is the space between,
I’d banish it from under me to get to you.
Your unexpected love provides my solitary suicide
oh I wish I knew Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #5”
From one Sunshine Blogger to another, I thank you kindly, Angela Campbell!
Also, apparently, there are questions.
1) What inspired you to initiate blogging?
Muse: *click clacks on my laptop* Writer human! What is this WordPress that other writer humans are frequenting?
Me: It’s a blogging thing. You create a blog, you share writing, you get feedback. Why?
Muse: No reason. Do you prefer Jade Wong or Jade M. Wong?
Me: M. We talked about that, didn’t-
Me: What? What’s done? What did you do?
Muse: First post hmm…oh! A Toast! New year, new poem!
Me: MUSE, OH MY GOD. Continue reading “The Muse Takes Over (aka The Sunshine Blogger Award)”
“But why me?” The words hovered over them, each letter holding its breath for his response.
He sat across from her at her kitchen counter, dressed incognito as always. His black sweatshirt covered his tattoos and the hood covered his platinum blond hair. Where did he begin to find his own words to answer her? Continue reading “[Flash Fiction] Fame, Fortune, and Empty Hearts”
Jade: Nobody melts my love-loving heart quite like the Backstreet Boys. I suppose growing up in the era of 90s boy bands, that was inevitable. This week, I’d like to share with you all a classic, in the hopes that the sweet vocals and sweeter lyrics of my favorite boy band will melt your heart as well.
PROMPT: [As Long As You Love Me – Backstreet Boys]
Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I’m leavin’ my life in your hands
People say I’m crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance Continue reading “Monday Morning Melts #4”
