Song of the Day: Hard Believer- First Aid Kit
Hahaha....so much for updating I suppose. Happy 2014 everyone. It's only been 7 months or so, so I bet you guys didn't even notice I was gone... I really am sorry about not updating for so long, but let's be honest, it happens every year so you should have seen it coming. Well, I'm finally about to graduate high school, which is pretty neat, but I think the fact that I'm going to Franklin University in SWITZERLAND for college is cooler. That interview that I mentioned in September went fabulously, so I ended up getting in and being offered a pretty hefty scholarship to attend in the fall. Also, on a completely unrelated side note about me: I became a vegan. So I am currently a liberal, atheist, vegan living in Texas, so I'm breaking all of the stereotypes. I just figured I'd share those little changes in my life, because they're pretty drastic, if only for me.:P Now for the computer stuff. I've added a few forum sets, and avatars, and I'm working on a new layout, but lol no promises. I hope all of you guys that still check up on here are doing well, and if you're an affiliate of mine, feel free to contact me on any link changes or if you deleted me (which is totally fine, I would have deleted me too probably.) Alright, well there you go, now take a gander at the new stuff! Bye!

Song of the Day: All Day- Girl Talk
Senior year has officially begun. Huzzah. I'm ready to get out of here. I've lived in this same place my entire life and my god I'm so ready to leave. Like jeez. I want to go everywhere. I want to travel and learn and explore and just experience everything. And I can't if I'm stuck here in my hometown for my whole life. So I'm ready for senior year to be over and for me to be leaving. It's not all bad though, I suppose. I did just get asked out to homecoming by my boyfriend with a ring pop, which was the most adorable thing ever. He knelt down and asked me to homecoming with the ring pop. I don't know where he got that idea (probably the internet) but it was awesome.:) So that was a thing. And I have my interview this week for Switzerland and I'm oh so nervous!>_< I also have my audition for the all state choir this week, so it's going to be an uber busy time for me. So, don't hate me if I don't post all the time, cause I probably won't, but it's me so you're all probably used to it.:P
Oh and if you want to here some of my covers go to soundcloud.com/savannahallyson . They're very rough a capella covers, but meh, they're decent I suppose. So if you want that, click here or paste that link.

Song of the Day: LA Song- Christian Kane (From Angel)
Sorry I haven't been here in awhile, but in all honesty aren't y'all used to it? (If anyone reads this, haha.) But anyway I have a lot of stuff I've started creating, but haven't finished. I have tons of awesome half-baked ideas that I haven't actually done anything with, but nothing to show for it, so sorry about that.:P I do have a couple of poems I added and a short story that I wrote. Warning: it's mega on the creep factor. I feel like I should add a disclaimer to my poetry and stories because some of them are sooo dark and I'm not generally a dark person. I'm actually a happy person, when I'm not stressed out about college of course. Oh, speaking of college! (Can you tell that I have no plan for these?) I got contacted by this college in Switzerland, and they're going to give me a free round trip there when I apply to come check them out! I'm so excited! I've always wanted to travel, going everywhere is my goal in life, and now I have a college in Switzerland that contacted me! Isn't that cool? (Well that's pretty much a rhetorical question because I think it's awesome and no one is going to change my mind about that. :P) So right now my top two college choices are either 40 or 5000 miles away. Isn't that lovely? So yeah, I'm pretty much a happy camper about that. So I'm going to end this bloggy thing now for the night. Hope you guys enjoy the poems and stories I post and see you all later!:)
Hi again. Alright so I added a rant about Gay Relationships on Television in the rants section and I hope you'll read it and like it and maybe even share it with your friends.:) Love you guys! Bye for real this time!@_@

Song of the Day: Breezeblocks - Alt-J
So this is going to be a serious blog apparently...weird. But anyway, this is my senior year of high school and I'm honestly terrified. Not of high school, but of what comes after it. I didn't grow up in a family that was really pro-this-college or go-that-university so I'm not biased towards anywhere and I am the oldest child so this process is new to the whole family so I honestly have no idea where to go to college. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up, so I can't look for a certain major either. I'm not scared I won't get into places (I have way too much college mail and too many recruitment letters.) but I am scared that I will get too overwhelmed, shut down, and not apply and then miss out on it. Because that's already kind of happening. Early registration is already going on in some places and here I am typing on a computer about how scared I am of it. I feel like my whole life depends on this decision, and if I make the wrong one I'm going to end up in a box in some alley someday. I know I'm being dramatic, but god am I terrified. I just don't know how to handle this whole thing. I'm not trying to be whiney about it either, I just figured I would vent here. Also I'm listening to some Alt-J music which is chill and very helpful. I'm not a worrier, but when my whole life is riding on this one decision I make before I'm even a legal adult it's a tad stressful. Alright, rant over.

Song of the Day: It Was Good For You Too - Marian Call
I'm working hard on several little things right now that I'm very excited about.:3 But that being said I don't have much for you in way of graphics. I did put 3 new poems up, 2 of which, or actually all 3 in some way or another, are based on Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel. An Ode to Drusilla is based on Drusilla, cause duh. And You're Welcome and The Beauty of Gray are based on the relationship between Lilah Morgan and Wesley Wyndam Pryce because I absolutely love them together. I know if you've seen it then you may be a little confused because I know a lot of people really hated Lilah, but she's honestly one of my favorite characters in Angel. (Tied only with Wesley and Lorne.) I loved her so much, and I don't care what anybody says, I think they were in love, if only for a moment. So yeah, rant on that is over, for now. But I might put a longer one in my rants and review section later. ;)
Oh, and if you feel like it you can vote for me in this contest!

Song of the Day: The Competition- Kimya Dawson
So I've a little bit of an update today, just a few minor things here and there. I have a few new avatars for yeah and a couple of reviews. I'm also working on several new edits that I'm not sure what I'm going to do with yet. Also I got my Japanese ime working for my computer! So now I can type in Japanese! やった! So yeah, I'm excited about that. Alright, well I think that's all I have to say today. Have a good day everyone!
Oh, and if you feel like it you can vote for me in this contest!

Song of the Day: Leaves From The Vine- Avatar the Last Airbender (Adriana Figueroa Version)
I'm finally home!@_@ I had fun on my vacation, but man am I ready to be home. I went to visit some family, and it was fun, but being in a car for 2 days both coming and going is hard to stand. I'm so happy to be home, and now I can update this thing! Hooray!:D Oh, and watch Pretty Little Liars, because I am teenage girl still...>_< Also, I entered these contests and would love you guys forever if you voted for me!:D

Song of the Day: Blue Lips - Regina Spektor
Hey, so I'm back from part 1 of my vacation and tomorrow I'm going on part 2 and won't be back until the 23rd. So I'm not getting much done today except adding some affiliates to the list and adding an avatar or two. Other than that I'm going to sleep and spend some time with my family before I leave them again to go on vacation.:)

Song of the Day: We'll Go Walkin - The Os
So I'm going on vacation for about a week, so I won't be adding or updating anything else for a week or so. Whenever I get back. So a lot of things are partially there and there are a couple of pages that are completely missing. I'm working on it, but not this week.:) (So the rest of the avatar hover actions will be up sometime next week to be specific.) I'm going to be relaxing and possibly beaching? I'm not really sure what I'm doing because this was an impromptu family vacation. But whatever it is I'm sure it's going to be fun and I'm so excited!:) If you do need to get in touch with me let me know in the tag box.:) Alright, well I have to go on vacation now! Bye!

Song of the Day: Fiction in Grey- Savannah (not me, the band.)
It's been a while since I've been present on the interwebs. Several months I think. But anyway, I'm Savannah and this is my new website Fiction in Gray. You may have known me from Sabby's. (And it had the same web address, so if that's where you were trying to get then hi! You're in the right place, sort of.) This is going to be a different site. Instead of mostly focusing on graphics and contests, this site is going to act more as a venting place where I can post my photography and writings. I will still post graphics and what not, but I think it will be less stressful on me if I don't feel forced to create graphics all of the time. I think it will work better and be more fun if I only post stuff that I felt inspired to create.:) Oh, and I'm going to try to be more organized with it so I don't get overwhelmed. So yeah, that's pretty much all I've to say right now. Enjoy!:D
*Oh, and I am doing an affiliate sweep, so if you'd like to continue being my affie let me known as soon as possible and I'll re-add you. Thanks.*
