The Fear You Won't Fall

So as my best guy friend would say, I sorta LIKE like someone. Not like like but LIKE like. :D

Okay so I can't truly say I'm in love. It's not that intense. And we aren't even together. But there's SOMETHING there. Something amazing and frightening and huge. And he'd be an IDIOT not to feel something there too. Because we have chemistry. Anyone could tell.

:)))))))))) I'm just a LITTLE over-happy today. You know how it goes. :P

But it is frightening to feel something that strong for a person. It's incredibly scary. Everyone says that love is wonderful. Love is the best thing they ever felt. And it's true. But love is also fearful. Love is suspenseful and adventurous and risk-taking.

A really good friend of mine likes this guy. She really REALLY likes him. But the thing is, she's never really had a good conversation with him. And she's like the FUNNIEST person ever. She's cute and smart and clever. Any guy would be CRAZY not to want her. She's feeling the fright right now. I keep telling her to just talk to him, and show him the fun and real side of her. If she does, I can't see how he could resist her! :)

I've been inspired by the song "The Fear You Won't Fall" by Joshua Radin. It is an absolutely BREATHTAKINGLY simple and awesome all in one three-minute piece. And it has the best take on love that I've heard in a long time.

I hope you like it!!!!

Take risks!

P.S. You know how I mentioned that best guy friend of mine? The funny one? Well.... he's the one. :)))))

Trying To Get Back To Work

Being in a rut is great, isn't it? I can't write, think or even create things in my head. It's been going for like 6 months but I think I'm slowly but surely pulling through.

Oh well, the best thing to do is wait it out.

One of my all-time favourite books that I've read a million times is WOW CANADA! by Vivien Bowers. I LOVE this book, which is about a family's roadtrip across Canada. It is AMAZING!

I just realized this past weekend/week how WOW and NOT WOW our country is.

Are you watching the Olympics? Okay, good, then enough said. I admire athletic people cause I am so not one, so I totally revere all those amazing athletes (not just Canadians, but I do favour them). They have worked so hard to get to this point and they are so good at what they do. It doesn't matter if they won a medal!!! They are all fifty trillion times better at sports than I am.

Just a little funny: "Are you dissing Canada? I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of my free healthcare."

In History class we are just learning about the pre-WWII time and the fact that Prime Minister King wouldn't allow any Jews into Canada just appalls me. We need to have open arms.

And the INTERNMENT OF ENEMY ALIENS DURING WWI?????? That enraged me. Basic racist principles in the first half-century DISGUSTS me.

But really, weren't we ALL a bit racist? Look at the slave trade or the Holocaust or the Crusades. All prime examples of racial/ religious discrimination.

I hate that!!!! It gets me so fired up!!!! I can't stand the fact that things like this are STILL happening! We should have been able to get over this and just accept other people.

Thank you for listening to my rant.

Long Time No See

And she's back, Emma Eldon, recovering after a painful injury {of boredom} and is here to stay!!! {she hopes}

Well, I'm just studying for German, and I had the sudden urge to log on, change a bunch of things around and get back out there... wherever there is.

Was machst du morgen denn?

Je vais parler avec mes amis a l'Internet!

Ja? Ich komme mit!!!

Excellent! Magnifique! Je t'aime!

Ich liebe dich!

I'm taking German AND French this year and LOVING it! I'm not sure if that conversation above is exactly correct, but I'll just fake it until I REALLY know how to speak the languages. Big shout out to ALICE MEYBECK, all the way in "ze soud of France" and KATRIN BRANDL all the way from beautiful Kirchdorf, Germany!

Okay, next time I'll write something a little more worthwhile, I promise.

Love y'all!!!

7 Random Bookish Things About Me

Sorry, I realise that I haven't posted in a while, but I've been really busy and all that. I know, not a good excuse, but SERIOUSLY! Disregard the lame post before this, kay? It was a mistake. This one's the real thing.

Well, anyways, I got tagged by Eileen of to say 7 random bookish things about me. So, here they are.
  1. I LOVE to buy books for people. I love picking out the perfect book for someone. Recently, I found one for my friend in which the heroine had the same last name as her. I was freaking out right there, in the bookstore.
  2. I have an account on at I am a reading nut, so I thought it was a worthy addition to my little family of memberships to things.
  3. I hate analysing books. Like, in English class and all that. It ruins the story for me, personally. That's why I do not put eons of time in learning the craft of fiction writing because then I'd be criticising everything. I've got a good handle on my voice, and to me, that's the only thing that matters.
  4. Oh, I can't think... oh, here's one. I have two bookshelf units already full of books and they're both nearly full. I'm only fourteen! I love to buy books.
  5. I couldn't work at a bookstore, because of the reason above: I love to buy books. I'd buy a book a day! Although, it would be an AMAZING job!
  6. Oh, almost done! Think! My favourite books in the world are definitely the Harry Potter Series. Second definitely comes the Christy Miller Collection. See my list of fave books on the side of this blog for a complete list (not in order).
  7. Last one! Um... Huh. I'm stumped. Oh, right, of course. My favourite Christmas or Birthday gifts are Chapters gift cards. Love them, love them, love them!

So there it is, 7 random bookish things about me!

Come check me out on shelfari!

Love, Emma Eldon

Title Change

It's fall, in case you haven't noticed. At least, it is in this part of the world.

And fall is a time of changes, so I decided to change my title. Something shorter, you know. Something swingy. So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. You are now reading "Christian Writing - Teenage Style". Today, I will be reviewing a new discovery of mine, The Christy Miller Collection, by Robin Jones Gunn. So this is a little stuff for the ladies. Suck it up, peeps.

The Christy Miller Collection

by Robin Jones Gunn

The Christy Miller Collection is a series of books that, ultimately, turned me over to God. There are twelve books in the series, with three books in each volume. See here to my right and above, Volume One. Sorry it's so blurry, my computer is messed, and I wanted to make the picture bigger. Christy Miller is about a girl named Christy Miller. There is also, after that, the Sierra Jensen Series, which is another twelve books (I haven't got there yet) and then the Christy and Todd: College Years trilogy.
Christy Miller goes through lots of things: a BIG move, jealousy, becoming a Christian, falling in love, giving, tough friendships and true friendships. She's a girl we can all truly relate to, except, of course, she lives in CALIFORNIA and she has the best boyfriend (Todd) ever. Todd is, without a doubt, THE best character in the series. Unfortunately, Todd is not real and is truly perfect for Christy. The best lines in the books are him saying, "Later, Chris," and jutting his chin up.
My favourite book of the Christy Miller Series, so far, is Book Five, Island Dreamer, when Christy, Todd, and Christy's best friend from Wisconsin, Paula, go to Maui for Christy's sixteenth birthday. By FAR the cutest and most romantic of all the books.
If you are a girl, I HIGHLY recommend the Christy Miller Series. Thanks to my friend Maxine for getting me into them. Without them, I wouldn't have turned my heart over to God when I did.
Today's Bible chapter (my new Bible has a reading plan, which I am following): Mark 2.
Good luck in school everyone!
luv, blessings,

Manga Messiah: Book Review

Hello everyone in cyper space! Today, I am going to start wha will seem like an endless stream of book and blog reviews. So, for all you people who AREN'T Christian who read my website... the next few posts will either give you something to think about, or totally turn you off. Hopefully the first one, though...

Manga Messiah

The Life and Teachings of Jesus, Manga Style!
This is the COOLEST way to learn about Jesus and what he stood for in his short life on Earth. You get visuals of all the characters you learned about as a kid, and gain some interesting insights on WWJD, or What Would Jesus Do? Manga Messiah follows the life of Jesus, right from Gabriel's appearance to Mary (the anunciation) to Jesus' ressurection. Whenever there's a demon or the devil in the story, the manga-ists get to show their tough side, creating collossal and deadly-looking demon-things. Anyway, it's cool, there's no doubt about that.
The next few days (until sunday, actually) I'll be very busy or away or whatever, so I won't be blogging. Check out the links to other blogs on this site, though, particularly the new addition to the 'links' list, Camy Tang's Blog, Story Sensei. I WILL be reviewing this blog.
If you're looking for Manga Messiah, go to a Christian bookstore, or maybe your church's library (it's where I found mine) has a copy.
Well, Toodle-oo,

The Love Chapter

"If I speak in tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing."

- 1 Corinthians 13 1-3, Study Bible, NRSV
