Back to School {desk, work} Part 2 // Biggest Title Ever // Other Stuff

 {Super long post ahead, including things I should of put in a different post :p}
First of all, desk pictures:
 {Sorry for all the blurry pictures :p}
 It says:
''Learning is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily''

 {Because school is a JOB}

I started school today. :p I took a math test {thankfully I didn't flunk}, and later {after lunch} I'll probably start Tapestry of Grace {it's a Christian history reading/writing thingy} after lunch.
Because of school, I'll be posting less often.
Also, because of my CO-OP. The classes I'll be taking this year {if you don't understand what CO-OP is, please look it up, because I have no idea how to explain :)}:
Cake Decorating {except the we'll be practicing on paper :p}
Art and Composition
Sign Language

On a unrelated note, HAIR:

On second unrelated note:

10. I like to say I like pie, but really, I hate pie.
11. Because pie is freaky.

The answers to Kara's questions:
 1. Why did you start blogging? For those awesome people who know, Slipping Through My Fingers was originally The Doll World {the URL was a mistake :p}. I showed my passion for my dolls, but I always felt it was restricting. I couldn't post any ''life'' posts. On my 6 months anniversary, I announced I was changing it.
2. Do you like head phones or ear buds better? Head phones.
3. Do you play an instrument? I PLAYED piano, and I'm learning guitar.
4. Are you learning a foreign language? I know a little French, and I'm trying to teach myself more.
5. Do you enjoy math? NO.
6. Do you like singing? Yes. I happen to think I should be on a show called Madeline Got Talent...
7. What are you looking at right now? A floating pie named Bob. {A.K.A., the computer screen :)}
8. Do you drink out of a cup, the faucet, a disposable water bottle, an aluminum water bottle, a plastic water bottle, or something else (if so, what?)? All of these. The faucet is the most fun. XD
9. Do you keep a journal? I have one, but I don't write in it alot.
10. Would you wear purple glasses? If it went with my outfit! ;)
11. Would you make a paper mache hot air balloon? If I could give it a really long name and refuse to let anybody give it a nickname or call it by anything else. :)

My questions:
1. Are you the average height for your age?
2.England or Paris?
3. If you could change how you look, what would you look like?
4. What's your best school subject?
5. Tomboy or girly? 
6. Cupcakes or cake?
7. What's your favorite type of music?
8. Are you tired now?
9. What is your current mood?
10. Have you started school yet?
11. What do you say when you mess up?

Like Kara said, almost everybody has gotten this award. So, I am giving it to ANYBODY who HASN'T gotten this award. Because you tot. deserve it! :)

Sorry if my writing isn't up to it's best today, my brain is crying.
P.S. If there aren't any more posts after a good while, you may assume my math books have finally devoured me after years of deciding.
P.P.S. Enter my giveaway! :)


  1. Well, I guess I'm ruled out on that blog award lol =D Hope school goes well for you, Madeline!

  2. P.S. Like your blog re-name! At first, when your post showed up on my dashboard, I was like "what??!! 'Instantly British by Madeline'?! I didn't follow that...!!" And then I clicked on it and saw that you'd just renamed your blog. =D

    1. That's always what I think when somebody changes their blog name! :)

    2. You can change your blog address, too. Just go to Settings!

    3. Storyteller--I could, but I'm pretty sure I'd lose all my followers if I did that. I know pretty weird--but it's hard to get to 34 followers! ;)

  3. Hey! I like your answers. You cab change the blog's URL you know, right? I'm learning guitar too. The dessert thing made me smile. I want to paper mâché a ballon, paint it light purple, and paint the Eiffel Tower on it. Haha. We'll see how that goes. Heehee I kinda wanna answer your questions now. Anyway, it's funny cuz for once I looked up your blog under the search engine and I clicked on it, saw the title change, and thought it was the wrong blog! Lol anyway, British stuff is cool. :D

  4. Hi Madeline!

    I have nominated you for the "Colorful Blog Award!" You can check it out here:

p.s. you're looking fab today.
