Annual Chromosome 18 Conference 2018 Part 5

Hey, everyone! I just got back from a trip to Baltimore for the annual Chromosome 18 conference. This blog post is a summary of what I did at the Chromosome 18p- conference this year. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. In case you’re wondering, the links are Thomas’, Camilla’s, and Chromosome 18’s website.

Here are some similar blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/15/my-adventure-to-surprise-part-1/ and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/09/13/annual-chromosome-18p-conference-2017/. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

July 3rd: 

I woke up at 8:25 am. Again Camilla called room service so she could order breakfast shortly after I woke up. At 9:23 am, Macy was outside my hotel room. Anyway, I let her in and I had already started getting ready to go down to the 5th floor.

So I finished getting ready quickly. Instead of going to the 5th floor though, we explored the hotel floors again. Eventually, Macy and I went into her hotel room and we hung out in her room there.

We sang a couple of songs from Youtube (luckily my throat wasn’t dry) before deciding to go down to the 5th floor. At 11:30 am, I went with Macy and Katie to listen to the pre-self-advocate panel in a certain room.

The pre-self-advocate-advocate panel was finished at 11:45 am for lunch. Macy’s parents weren’t out of a session yet so she asked if she could sit with me for lunch. I was perfectly fine with that.

I ate most of my lunch while waiting for Macy to get her water. I ate my dessert while waiting for Macy to get her dessert. After we both finished eating lunch, we went back up to Macy’s hotel room for a few minutes before heading back down to the 5th floor.

Macy and I hung out with Katie, Kaylyn Earl (an 18p- friend), Rebecca, Irene Mckay (an 18p- friend I’ve known), and Remy before my friends had to go to the certain room. Also, Macy and I got our photo taken as well. At 2:15 pm, Macy came out to take a break and I hung out before Macy and Rebecca had to go back to the certain room.

I went up to the room again until 3:00 pm when I went back down to the 5th floor. At 3:10 pm, Macy came out and we hung around the 5th-floor talking and giggling (or laughing, whichever you want to call it).

At 5:00 pm, I went down to the lobby with Macy to see Macy off for Self Advocate Dinner (didn’t go since it wasn’t my type of food). At 7:28 pm, Macy messaged me through Facebook Messenger saying she was on the 5th floor.

So I headed back down to the 5th floor right away. After that, we went up to my hotel room to hang out and talk until 9:50 pm. I decided to go down with her to right outside her hotel room and then I went up alone thinking and daydreaming (at night while awake).

Then I got ready for bed and went to sleep late that night wondering what would happen tomorrow. I was excited that the next day was the 4th of July. I went to sleep happy but tired.

My Adventure To Surprise Part 13

Hey, everyone! I went to Surprise, AZ for the end of May/beginning of June with my grandparents (also known as The Romano Duo). I would just like to share my adventure with you. By the way, some of the times aren’t accurate. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy!

June 9th, 2018:

I woke up at 7:10 am and we got into the car at 9:00 am but we stopped by the store so Frank could get gas, Patty could get breakfast, and have fun. Anyway, at 10:00 am we were on our way.

The Motel 6 had some decent beds. I was really comfy at 7:10 am so I didn’t want to get up at all. I knew that I had to get up sooner or later though. Once I was out of bed, I was very relaxed and refreshed.

At 12:00 pm, Frank stopped at a gas station. I also ate my lunch when Frank stopped at the gas station. After 12:00 pm, we drove to Fernley and saw the Love’s gas station where Frank stopped for gas the last time.

I saw the mountains that hide Reno and Sparks shortly around 2:26 pm which is always awesome to see. Around the same time, we arrived back in Reno. This is where the 2-week vacation ends.

That’s the end of My Adventure In Surprise! Thanks to Patty and Frank for making the trip a great experience!

A Halloween Story

Hey, everyone! Since today is Halloween, I decided to write a Halloween story. This story is about a fairy and her princess preparing for Halloween. Hope you enjoy!

Once upon a Halloween, there lived a fairy and her princess who enjoy Halloween every year. One Halloween, the fairy asked, “Are you going as a fairy? If you are, I could give you some hints. I am going as a princess. I want some hints from you, please.”

“Yes, I’m dressing up as a fairy. I need some fairy tips from you, please. Wow, I could give you princess tips and hints”, said the princess. The princess and the fairy are going to a Halloween party and they are going as a fairy and princess. They give professional tips and hints every year to each other.

“You did a magnificent job. The makeup is fantastic. Does my makeup look ok?”, said the princess. “Yes, you did a splendid job. Thank you.” Once they were at the Halloween costume party, they had fun and got plenty of candy from trick treating.

When they got home, they were so tired that they collapsed into bed after they took off their costumes.  They had scary, fun, and silly Halloween dreams. Happy Halloween, everyone 🎃!

A Happy World

Hey, everyone! I just got inspired by a drawing I drew. You’ll see a picture of my drawing at the bottom in this blog post. Anyway, here’s a story based on the drawing.

One day, a bird picked up a seed to eat. A few minutes later, the bird decided that it wasn’t the right seed. The bird threw it back down. That was the beginning of the Happy World.

As the years past, the tree grew until it had several branches and a strong trunk. The strong tree became known as the Happy Tree. The Happy Tree decided to produce a seed. The seed grew with happiness and love. One day, the seed blossomed into a young beautiful tree that didn’t grow much after that point.

The young tree became known as the Amazing Beauty Tree. The Amazing Beauty Tree saw the Happy Tree. Suddenly, she realized that she wanted to know who produced her. She asked the Happy Tree if it was him who planted her. He said yes and Amazing Beauty wanted to produce a seed of her own.

She let the bird fly the seed to the Happy World. The seed became a thin beautiful conifer tree. The tree produced identical seeds until there was almost no room to plant seeds. After that the trees started planting grass seeds. After the grass had grown, there was no room to plant seeds.

A few years later, the several earthquakes that would become the mountains shook the world. The trees, birds, and grass survived. They noticed something different about the landscape and they saw triangular tall figures. They soon realized that they had saw a mountain. About the same time, their roots filled with water and animals.

One year later, humans discovered the Happy World and decided to make a small town out of it. They also made cars, rockets, and kites. The sun, clouds, rain, hail, snow, and thunderstorms were always there but they were nicer than outside of the Happy World. Everyone lived happily. If you go into a forest, you will realize that the Happy World is the forest.

Happy World

The happy world includes geese, ducks, rabbits, birds, car, rocket, city, trees, grass, and more. I hope you enjoy!

Sapphire & Topaz Mystery Solver

Hey there! Relax and take a deep breath. You are about to enter a gemstone’s mystery.

Once upon a time, there lived 2 detectives who were named Sapphire and Topaz. They had already solved 3 mysteries. This is their fourth mystery together.

One day, they were walking when they suddenly saw a mystery. They suspected that someone or something was following them. They went home to get an idea of what it could be.

Then they went back to the scene with a magnificent idea to try out. The magnificent idea was to get some yummy food at a local gem restaurant and use it to catch the someone or something.

First, they got some food along the way too because they were hungry also. They walked back to the scene after that. Secondly, they put the food on the sidewalk and looked for a nearby hidden spot to wait.

Fortunately, they saw a bush and a tree; and they hid in those places. Shortly after, they saw a gem animal they’d never seen before. So they went to investigate but the gem animal noticed them looking her.

The gem animal laughed and said, “Hello there! I’m Gem-Topia and I am your new gem neighbor. Can you tell me who both of you are?”Hey there! Nice to meet you, Gem-Topia. I am Sapphire and this is Topaz.” said Sapphire with a chuckle.

So the trio became friends. They spent time together and they were inseparable. I hope you enjoyed my story!

Pretty blue sapphire!

Pretty green topaz!

Graceful Swans

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to this week’s edition of Emotions With Animals! I have recently wrote Enchanted Egyptian BeautyJealous CrayonsEmotions With Animals:: Jealous ParrotsAngry Candy StoryEmotions With Animals: Angry DucksA Sad Princess StoryEmotions With Animals: Sad CatsA Happy FairyHappy DogsA Mindful Mermaid Story, and Mindful Goslings.

Swans gracefully float across wetlands, lakes, ponds, seas. Swans are calm most of the time. Most swans gracefully fly in hibernation season in search for warm water.

Graceful people can float in pools and beaches. People can be calm sometimes. People can walk, swim, play, smile, stand, and sitting gracefully.

How To Be Graceful:

Living: Live in a place full kindness, courage, loving, conviction, non-resistant  and acceptance.

Sleep: Knowing that you’re loved, helps you to go to sleep gracefully.

Connecting With Emotions: It will make you feel graceful afterward.

Responding: Respond with love.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s edition of Emotions With Animals! Check in next week for another round of Emotions With Animals! If you’re waiting for a emotion story, hang in there! It will be next. Don’t forget to check out Camilla’s blog at Mindful Musings.

Fairyland Adventure

Hey, there! I’ve created the Fairyland Adventure blog series for everyone (especially for fairy lovers to read.) This is the intro of the series. Have fun reading the series!

June 3rd – (At Night)

That night, Lilliana had a dream of a magical car wash and some colorful lights moving. She saw herself in her dream. It instantly disappeared that very night. She wondered what the dream had meant but she wanted to see the same dream again.

June 4th – (Morning)

Lilliana told her mother, Camille about the vision she saw the night before. Lilliana asked Camille if she had any idea what the dream meant.

June 7th – (Night)

After Lilliana saw the dream for 3 nights, she saw that the magical carwash was slowly transforming before her eyes.

June 10th – (Night)

That very night, all of Fairyland appeared before her eyes. Lilliana instantly loved the place she was in. So she went to ask the Fairy Queen about what to do to get into Fairyland and what she would need. The fairy Queen had said that there’ll be a dressing room portal where Lilliana could change into her fairy outfit and wings. When Lilliana comes back, her clothes would be right where she had left them.

June 11th – (Night)

That night, she checked out her amazing portal and she went to explore the place.

That is how Fairyland came to be. Hope you enjoyed this fairyland intro!

Jealous Crayons

Hey there, everyone! I wrote Emotions With Animals: Jealous ParrotsAngry Candy StoryEmotions With Animals: Angry Ducks,  A Sad Princess StoryEmotions With Animals: Sad CatsA Happy FairyHappy DogsA Mindful Mermaid Story, and Mindful Goslings. I hope you enjoy my crayon story!

Once upon a time, a crayon named Brick was almost always jealous of his twin Periwinkle Strawberry Star ever since Periwinkle was born. One day, their parents called Indigo and Violet thought they should find a plan to stop the jealousy.

So they called, asked, walked, explored and traveled. Finally, they found a crayon named Blueberry Midnight Indigo. The trio crayons headed back to their colorful home. Indigo and Violet called Brick when they got home. Violet pretended to adopt Blueberry. Indigo pretended to tell Brick,”Periwinkle has been sent away.”

Over the next few days, Brick got to know Blueberry. Little did she know, that Indigo and Violet were with Periwinkle who was still in the colorful home. Soon a year passed since Brick had been jealous and Brick had become a great friend (good fake sibling also) to Blueberry.

One day, Violet and Indigo thought it was about time that Brick knew the truth. So Violet and Indigo told Brick the truth and showed Periwinkle who explained she had been in her colorful red and blue room while Indigo and Violet had visited her every day.

So Brick apologized to Periwinkle for being jealous about Periwinkle’s name. Periwinkle told her brother that she could change his name to Atomic Brick Red. Brick loved it and from that day forward he was Atomic. As for Blueberry, he married Periwinkle. Atomic Brick and Blueberry became brothers in law. If you look closely, you can hear the new trio laughing, talking, and having fun.

I hope you enjoyed my crayon story! Tune in next Friday for the next round of Emotions With Animals. Also, don’t forget to check out Camilla’s website at Mindful Musings.
