My family started a new holiday tradition a few years ago and this year was our third annual nerf war. My little sister hosted it at her house this year since all of her roommates were gone and she has a pretty cool back yard. We started off the usual way, picking teams and wearing red or green bandannas. We play capture the flag. We start off at a tree and you have to get the flag back to the tree. If you’re shot you put your gun up and have to go back to the tree to get back in. Simple enough. We played two rounds where my team, the red team won both times. I know, we are good.
After a break we decided we were going to change it and play zombie. This is every man for them self. Everyone is a human except for one, which was my 3 year old niece. Everyone hid and she had to find us. If she touched you, you became a zombie and you put your gun down and go after the other humans. The last human standing won. Same rules apply for the zombies that if you got shot you go to the tree. Well I turned into a zombie got shot and went to the tree. After I touched the tree I saw my dad in the house and went after him. I was right on his tail running down the stairs and he dove over he couch and I fell down the stairs! It was like my feet came off the stairs and I was in the air, slammed down on my butt and back and slid down a quite a few stairs. I couldn’t stop myself. Then my dad gets off the couch and shoots me with his nerf gun. I just laid there. It hurt so bad! But we laughed about it, until now as I’m laying on the couch writing this in pain. It hurts to sit down and stand up! Typical me. Clumsy as ever. Forever tragic. Maybe 2016 will turn a new leaf. Until then I’ll just sit here with my broken butt.
(Sad that we didn’t take any pictures this time, all I have is this text to my other sister who couldn’t come)
Hello all! As you know I announced that there will be some big changes to the blog come the new year, one of which is changing the name. This has been a change that I have thought about a lot. Once I figured out the new name I knew I was making the right decision and I am really excited. So with that being said, come 2016 Tragic Girls will be changing to…
The blog will be changing to the.B.Law! When I thought of this name I liked it, but still wasn’t sure. Then as I kept thinking about it, the more I fell in love with it. It is kind of a play on words and has a few different meanings, one- obviously it represents my name, two- this was my high school nick name (I was on varsity dance and we had three Brittanys so my name turned into B-Law), and three- I like that it sounds like what I am saying is my law (haha).
Changing the name from Tragic Girls is bitter sweet. Tragic Girls is what got me started and it holds a lot of meaning and memories, especially of my roomie and I. I am excited though for the change and what the new name, the.B.Law means. They reason I am making the change is because I have come to a point where the name Tragic Girls itself I feel is restricting me. I know it is my blog and I can write about whatever I want, but I want my name to reflect what my blog is about, or at least be broad enough to cover whatever. Tragic Girls was fun and I will always be tragic, but I want to write about more. I have already ventured into style however, with the name Tragic Girls, if you didn’t read the blog already it may seem like I am writing about tragic fashion which I am NOT! I want a name where any topic is possible. Trust me I have tried to break out of this confinement and convince myself otherwise but it hasn’t worked, the block is in my head. Tragic Girls will always be a part of me and you can bet if something tragic happens I will still post it (tragicness is inevitable in my life), and as long as I can figure out how to do it, I want to keep tragic girls as a page on my blog. I will have to research and mess around to figure out if that is even possible.
The other change to my blog will be the look. I have been trying to hint with the pictures I have been posting about the upcoming changes. I want it to be classic, black and white. Simple and classy. I am still trying to find the right theme and I think I settled on one last night. In a few day Tragic Girls will be officially close for “construction” while I work on the changes. I hope you will all enjoy what is to come!
So I know NaNoWriMo is well over and obviously I didn’t finish but that’s okay! I’m not done with my novel but that doesn’t mean I’m done writing. I will finish this novel and just because I need more time doesn’t mean I failed, it’s okay because I am determined to finish. I just wanted to let you all know that I haven’t given up!
Make sure to stay tuned tomorrow because I will be revealing the new name of my blog! I am so excited to get started with all of my changes! After I reveal the new name and post my explanation of all of my upcoming changes the blog will be temporarily closed, under construction to make all the changes as the new year approaches. I hope you will bear with me through this! I am so thankful for your continued support.
Talk to you tomorrow! Can’t wait!
It’s the last month of 2015, a new year is approaching. What will the new year bring for you? Any resolutions? Well 2016 will bring change for Tragic Girls, not only a new look but a new name! This is has been a very thought out decision but I am so excited to evolve and do more! The new name will be revealed later this month along with an explanation as to why. I hope you all will enjoy it and be just as excited as I am and continue to support me!
