New Books for 2010!

Hey guys! Do you like my books? Do you KNOW you'll like THE INTERSTATE? Well then, here's some really good news for you...

Once Upon A Christmas Eve.
This book will be about a girl living on the streets. She is an orphan, or so she thinks. She never knew her parents or the name she was given. She was just abandoned on Addison Road, a street in Cleveland. (Yeah, it really is a street.) She is thirteen years old, without a name, without a friend, without a school to attend. She is very alone, having to hunt for every penny. If she's lucky enough, she could find a hamburger in the trash of McDonald's and in addition, maybe find ten dollars on the ground to maybe find a scarf or sweater, or buy a hot meal. But on a Christmas, she finds what really matters.

The Diary Of A Bored Kid.
Yes, the name may seem pretty boring. Jimmy Johnson is the typical eleven-year-old, in fact, even more fortunate. He has everything many adults even don't have: He's a five-time regional spelling bee champion and two-time national spelling bee champion. His dad is on the news everyday at six o' clock and his mom owns the best restaurant in town, and also a bakery that has won three culinary arts awards. He's gone to the world championships for baseball. Face it, he's got everything. But he soon finds out what he's missing.

The Story Of A Mad Bridesmaid.
Emily Lewis has always wanted to get married, but here's the problem: She's been the maid of honor in every wedding she's been invited to. Sure, that's marvelous, but Emily doesn't think so. She's been getting teased her entire life. Preschool, elementary, middle school, high school, college. The reason? She's always been a little bit overweight. A little bit thicker than the anorexic-looking queen bees. No matter what school she transfered to, or what school she switched to because she was in a higher grade, those same kids would haunt her. It's affected more than her mind though--- it affected her chances at marriage. When will she get the chance?
There should be a poll to your right or left. Vote on it.

Please Watch!!!!!!!!!

This is a video I got stuck in my head. It's hilarious and a remix of boom boom pow!

This is my floor routine song. It's dreadful, I know. But I love it and I really want you guys to listen to it! By the way, the video goes longer than the actual song, so it should end at 0:53.

my foot:(

Today I hurt my right foot on the beam. It's swollen now, but at least i'm not limping anymore!

The Interstate Chapter 10

That very Monday night I thought about the day's pros and cons. My English teacher wanted everyone to keep a diary for seventy days, so I had to write down today's entry:

Monday, November 23, 2009, Day 12
Today I went to school as usual. I dissected a rabbit in science, also. For lunch today we had spaghetti. Who likes spaghetti? Seriously. After school I got on Facebook again. (I'm addicted) Posted a few pictures, the usual. I did some homework for science about the rabbit anatomy and History homework on the great depression. Right now i'm doing math homework, a sudoku puzzle. Later I have to fill in a French worksheet. This sudoku puzzle is so easy, who would give a freshman this? Well now I have to rest for the math test tomorrow.
-Johnathan Bosdow

I got up to turn off the light. When I entered the warm, cozy bed, I thought about the grades I might get tomorrow. They probably wouldn't be good.

I thought about the accident. Everyday I I wake up fearing the day's challenges.

I wake up knowing I could do better. I know better than to water down my faith when someone says they don't believe in God or that evolution is real.

I wake up thinking about the horrible loss that has just occurred. I really wish I could go back and change everything.

I dream of Annie

Ok, I saw a few Annie commercials for the play tour, and oh my gosh, how awesome would it be to be on stage with the part? I have a few friends who have recently been in plays (such as,, and it looks awesome. I recently saw the Jungle Book on my birthday and really liked it. So Annie would seem awesome. I've been watching that movie as long as I remember, and if i'm lucky, if I improve in drama and go to Wayne someday, they might have a production i'll really like!

Diet for Dancers

Okay, sorry it's taking so long to write more on The Interstate, but I just can't think of what Johnathan's point of view in chapter 10 should be.

Okay, I like, REALLY want this book called Diet For Dancers. It's about the diet that a dancer should have. I know for sure it will have nearly impossible things in it--- like pouched eggs and salad. Sure, i'm willing to try it but... being the picky eater I am, I can't do that. I naturally can't finish a salad after the first bite, and pouched eggs? I've never eaten one before. I don't think the book will mention that, but just in case, I can skip that...

Actual math!!!

Thank you WikiAnswers so much! If I didn't have WikiAnswers, I wouldn't know what the square root of pi was! Btw I really like pie! (Pie as in food)

Well my birthday was yesterday so finally, I have caught up to the other sixth graders! ELEVEN!

I wonder when my birthday will be on thanksgiving again... gobble gobble gobble!

WEEKLY QUESTION: If you had just seen Jesus at the mall for example, how would you react? Do you think Jesus would blend in with the crowd well? Would he look like an ordinary man? Email me it or comment!

The Interstate Chapter 9

I entered the classroom. I was out of the hospital by then, and it was Monday at school. I was late for math again, and I was prepared for the tardy I'd get. My mind was still chaotic from the night before, and I felt kind of paranoid. This could happen again, any day.

"You're late." Mr. Panini said. "I know. I was just so busy..." I said. He filled out a detention slip. "Please, Chloe, I don't have time for your big mouth. Now go sit down." I closed my mouth and sat down.

Like I actually understood what this guy was saying. It was so difficult. "What is the square root of pi, Chloe?" Mr. Panini said. "Uh... am I supposed to know?" I asked. Everybody sighed loudly. "Chloe, we just discussed this. The square root of pi is 1.772453850905516027298167483314, even more precisely." I blinked. "How do you have the time to think of this stuff?" I asked. "Lets just get back to the lesson," He said.

At lunch that day I sat by myself. I didn't have a friend to sit with anymore, let alone a boyfriend. I also noticed Johnathan was by himself. He was the only person I really noticed in the crowded cafeteria. The rest just moved swiftly. I envied every person who walked by.

I was having the worst day. I spilled water on myself at the fountain and my stomach couldn't handle dissecting the bunnies. I seriously had to leave the classroom and the details I can't say. I had a massive migraine. And detention after school. Not to mention, while at the nurse's office, the nurse wouldn't even give me Tylenol. Tylenol, seriously. A tiny pill.

Finally, towards the end of the day, I had left a two hour detention. It was four o' clock now. I had missed band practice. I decided to walk home today, and was very bored. "How was school today?" My mom asked when I got home. "It was horrible," I said. "I spilled water on myself, we had to dissect a rabbit today, and I had the worst migraine in the history of migraines."
"oh," Mom said. "How was band today? Did you perform well?" I sighed. "I didn't go to band class today. I had detention." Mom put her hands on her hips. "What did you do this time, Chloe?" She asked.
"I was late."
"I couldn't find my locker, and when I found it, my books fell, and by the time everything was picked up and tidy, I was the last person in the hall." She shook her head. "Chloe, how can you survive college someday if you can't make it to high school classes on time?" I shrugged. "By the way honey, you need to clean your room," Mom said as I headed towards it.

When I lay my head down to sleep that night, I thought about all the possibilities. Had I brought Jeremy to church... would he be a christian right now?

The Interstate Chapter 8

I didn't see many people I knew. They were just strangers and my mind went blank. I didn't remember anyone if I had seen them. Then, my arm suddenly caught on fire. I shook my arm and blew on it. It got worse. The fire had spread to the rest of my body. I began to scream, but no one else seemed to notice, caught up in their own despair.

There was no water. No fire extinguishers. All blackness and fire. I could barely breathe, because of the heat and smoke. I couldn't speak, because with all the flames and screaming and crying and 'NOOOOOOOOO's, no one would hear me. I felt so alone and scared.

It had seemed like months in this dreaded place, yet it had only been minutes. I hated it here, like I could help it. This left me wishing that I had listened to Johnathan. But there's no turning back now.

The Interstate Chapter 7

In Heaven, I decided to explore the place. I saw my mom, who died when I was thirteen, last year. I also saw my great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandmother. This was so cool! I also met famous people like comedian Bob Hope. Wow, this was like being on the red carpet. My ticket to happiness. Was the ticket free? Heck no! But I didn't pay. All I did was pray. For my food? No. Because I was going to bed? No. Because I wanted to be saved.

So now I was on my merry way to my golden mansion. GOLD! How could I expect to be so wealthy? I knew my friends at school would be so jealous if they knew how much fun I was having. I wished I could text them or something so they knew how I was doing.

I entered the mansion. I had a golden bed--- not like i'd use it. Golden sofa and recliner. A huge table. In the backyard was a swimming pool and jacuzzi. Trampoline, too. Wow, I thought, God must want us to have fun every second, oh how awesome is he! I really loved it there, and was having so much fun when I realized I was missing something. In the accident were four people, me, Chloe, Jeremy and Johnathan. Johnathan was a christian for sure--- he went to my church, and he was always faithful. Chloe was christian too, she was very faithful in everything she did. Jeremy... I sure hoped he was still alive. Maybe i'll ask God.

I swam in the pool for a few minutes. I felt guilty for a moment, knowing I could have done better in everything. Jeremy could have known about the LORD. I could've shown that I loved God to everyone. I should've invited Jeremy to Youth on Wednesdays and Sundays. It was all my fault. But then I perked up again. It was not my fault. I still should've said something though. Now i'm full of regrets.

The Interstate Chapter 6

After the conversation with Chloe, I walked into the room where McKenna and Jeremy's bodies were. I can clearly remember how they both looked. Maybe there's a connection with the body and the soul, because their facial expressions looked pretty different.

McKenna had a smile on her face, like she had achieved something great. Her hands were together like one hand on top of the other. Her closed eyes looked peaceful.

Jeremy had a straight face, 100%. His eyes were tightly shut. His hands were glued to his side. He didn't look happy.

But how could they look like this if they were dead? How interesting things can be at times.

A tear rolled down my cheek. I knew i'd miss both of them. Poor Jeremy had been my friend since we were eleven. Since then we were inseparable best friends. We did everything together--- homework, double dates with our girlfriends, we'd even help each other find stuff for our moms on Mothers Day and our dads on Fathers Day. And then Chloe lost control of her brakes.

McKenna... the day I met her it was love at first sight. I swore i'd marry her someday, and I already planned the proposal, years early. She was the only girl that I really liked. I asked her out in middle school when I was in eighth grade and she was in sixth. It might seem weird to have and eighth grader going out with a kid just out of elementary, doesn't it? But I really liked her. And now I wouldn't find another girl.

I knew that when I went back to school, things wouldn't be the same. And I was going back really soon.

The Interstate Chapter 5

I woke up from the unconsciousness that embraced me. I was in a hospital room. I felt very dehydrated and tired. Where was McKenna? Where was Jeremy? I was worried and didn't know what happened.

I last remember being in the car and spinning out of control. Everything else is black. Right now I was in a semi-empty room. If you include me. Everything seemed so blurry. My memory was really bad. I must've hit my head on the window or the air bag knocked me out. My nose felt like there was a weight on it. I felt it. Ouch. Weird, there's a bump. I thought. My nose was broken.

One hour, two hours, three. I was super bored. Finally, Johnathan walked in. "Hey, Chloe." He said. I frowned. "Hey."
"Soooo... 'sup?"
"Nothing but boredom."
"I see."
Johnathan and I talked for about thirty minutes, then I asked, "Where is Jeremy and McKenna?" He sighed. "Uhhhhh... well Jeremy and McKenna... they kinda..."
"Kinda what?" I asked. "Kinda what?"
"Chloe, they both died." I suddenly began to silently cry. "Both?" I asked. "Both."
I wiped a tear. "They can't both be dead, they just can't be." Johnathan sighed again. "Yeah, that's what I thought too. Sorry, Chloe, but it's the truth." He left the room.

The Interstate Chapter 4

I woke up to total darkness. Where am I? I thought. I saw flames surround me, but not anyone I knew. They were all strangers.

I had once attended church when I was twelve, and the pastor was always saying something about Heaven and Hell. I was told Heaven is a place of no tears, pain, sorrow, fear, and other stuff. It seemed unreal, and this was NOT heaven, but I didn't know there was even an afterlife. Yes, I knew I was dead. But where was I? I heard Hell was a place of eternal damnation. A place of fear, pain, and tears. This place seemed strange, though.

I soon realized where I was. This wasn't heaven, it was hell. Everyone was screaming--- it was a bit obvious. This was what I was afraid of, but I didn't want to be one of those Jesus freaks. McKenna was a Jesus freak, and she seemed all joyful, but it didn't seem like something that would make me happy. I now know.

I wouldn't have a mansion, like McKenna, who I knew was dead. I wouldn't walk on gold. I was now entering eternal punishment.

The Interstate Chapter 3

I woke up to see only a dream. I knew i'd probably wake up in a couple minutes. It was cloudy, not as in the weather, but I was standing on thin air, on a cloud. I could barely see myself, I looked dreamy too. This isn't me, I thought, It can't be. I don't look this pretty. I can barely describe myself. And it was true. No mirrors, nothing. Nothing i'd expect.

I saw pure gold. Gates that reached the sky. Curiously, I opened them. I couldn't believe what I saw. Pure gold. Streets so shiny and pure, I could see my reflection.

I looked beautiful, unlike what I thought on earth. Pink highlights? Gone. Bangs? Gone. I felt my eyes. No contacts either. No acne. I could barely recognize myself, and I wondered, Is there a me? Am I in a different body? I don't know of a day I looked this pretty. White robe? Where am I, the bathroom? I didn't know where I was.

Then finally, I saw him face to face. And do you know who 'him' is? The only him I had known longer than my younger brother by a year--- GOD! And Jesus! I had so many questions, but God already knew what I was about to ask. "Am I dead?" I asked him. I was worried about my family and friends. "You are not dead," he said, "It is just the beginning." I sighed. I knew right then that I was dead. But I suddenly became happy. I had never been so happy to be dead before. I knew I was in the best place ever--- HEAVEN! Eternal life. I was about to cry, I was so happy, but the tears wouldn't fall. I wouldn't see one tear anymore.

The Interstate Chapter 2

I woke up to hear Chloe scream as I woke up from a deep sleep. She looked frightened. The car was spinning out of control on black ice. It was freezing outside. Finally, Chloe bumped into a car at 50 miles per hour, and the car flipped on its side. Jeremy was sitting in the front seat with her, and flew through the windsheild. He wasn't wearing a seat belt. McKenna was just the opposite. Her seat belt was twisted at the neck and she could barely breathe, strangeling herself. Chloe was unconscious. I gently undid McKenna's seatbelt and reached for the phone and dialed 911.

"911 emergency" said the calm lady on the phone. "I'm in a fatal car accident and I need the EMS here right now!" I said, panicking. "My friend flew through the windsheild, my other friend is unconscious, and the other is unconscious, too." There was a pause. "Help is on the way." She said.

In minutes, the EMS found where we were, and we were immediately rushed to the nearest hospital. There was nothing wrong with me, but Jeremy was bleeding all over. His breath was getting shorter now, and I was getting scared. McKenna was worse. She wasn't breathing at all anymore. They had tried everything. McKenna was gone. Poor little girl, only fourteen. She was my first and only girlfriend. I was fifteen.

Jeremy was slightly still alive, but he was running out of life and breath. I couldn't talk to him; I didn't think he'd respond. Jeremy was an awesome friend, drum player, and classmate. To be right there in his final moments would be depressing. He was only fifteen, like me.

Chloe was breathing perfectly, I was just waiting for her to wake up.

Just then Jeremy breathed his last and died. There was nothing we could do. Both McKenna and Jeremy died. Death can't control itself. It just happens.

The Interstate Chapter 1

I remember getting a superior rating at the state for band. Washington Hills High is on top again! I know for sure we will rate high next year, being a high school junior. I excel in the flute. Some people may call band members geeks, but HELLO, it is so fun! I honestly don't care what they think. I may wear glasses. But they're stylish. I might have braces. But i'm getting Invisalign next year! I am confident, and those insecure mean girls aren't.

We were on our way back from the best state competition since my freshman year. We were all so proud of ourselves, and cheering! "Oh my gosh, Chloe, can you believe how great we were? Good job on the flute solo!" Cried McKenna, my best friend since we were six months old. She was so pretty, with dark brown hair and straight teeth with contacts and pink highlights. "Awesomeness!" Said Jeremy, my boyfriend. Johnathan, McKenna's boyfriend, was silent. He was always that way. "Johnathan, why are you always so quiet?" I asked. Johnathan shrugged. Of course, again, he didn't know.

I drove a few more miles with silence, then my phone rang. "Hello?" I answered after the second ring. "Hey, Chloe. Tell me how state was." It was my friend Isabel. "It was good. Awesome rating."
"Great. See, I told you it would be fine!" Isabel said. "Izzy, I almost messed up on my solo. That was not alright!"
"It was horrible! It almost messed up the whole song!"
"Chloe, stop being so dramatic. You did good, I already know."
I sighed. "Okay, I did a little goo---OH MY GOSH, AHHH!"

The Interstate Prologue

This new blog book of mine, The Interstate, is about a devastating car crash on route 71. No, this story is not true, but it does have some reality to it, doesn't it?

Over 5,000 teenagers will die in a car accident this year. You may think getting your liscense is all hunky-dory, but is it? It is, if you take it seriously, and I mean VERY seriously. If you are willing to text while driving, you don't know what you're doing. If you're willing to talk on the phone while driving, you're not the brightest crayon in the box. If you're willing to listen to music and do your makeup, YOU'RE NUTS! Are you ready for your liscense? If you are thinking of doing that, you're not.

This is a story about four teens, Chloe, McKenna, Johnathan and Jeremy. They are all hanging out on their way back from a state band competition. It is late, midnight. They are very good students, and don't do anything bad. But one phone call is all it takes.

my floor routine song!

Tell me if you like this song or not! It's my level 4 floor routine!!!

Ever thought about sanitizing these?

H1N1 started out as a sickness that only like, eleven people had. (AAACHOO!) Well now it's everywhere and I even know some people who had it now. So how can you keep yourself from getting sick? Are you at risk? What can you do if you get the swine? This is a guide you might want to print.

Sanitize these:

  • Toilet Seat
  • Tabletop or Desk
  • Pens, pencils, anything you use for school
  • YOUR HANDS!!!!
  • Coffee mugs and glasses, cups
  • Video game controllers, like Wiis, Play Stations, etc....
  • Toilet handles
Keeping myself from getting sick in addition:

  • Don't touch your eyes, mouth and nose
  • Stay at least five feet away from people, sick or not
  • Don't be all in someone's face even if you're mad

What to do if I, or someone i've been in contact with is sick:

  • Wash your hands VERY often
  • Stay at least five feet away from people
  • Don't go to a whole bunch of activities, stay home until you know you are not sick
  • Gargle salty water in your throat

Am I at risk? How am I?

  • If you have asthma and other breathing problems
  • If you have neurological problems like epilepsy and MS
  • If you have been exposed to swine in less than a week ago
  • If you are a baby or a senior (highly doubt that)
  • If you don't wash your hands (I sure hope you do!)

my 100th post!

Hello everyone! This is my 100th post celebration! I remember the day I was on and thought, 'Hey, this looks so cool! I'm going to make my own blog!' I knew that my blog wouldn't be popular at first and people would hate it and all, so I didn't make a blog.

I started sending out emails to all the friends I could name, even people that weren't my friends. They were emails I'd use to send what I now call Weekly Questions. People started replying to me, and saying that I should make an actual blog full of these questions. So I made my very first.

The first blog was not successful. I was following myself, and couldn't make more than one post. I got rid of that one, which is still on the internet, but is not used.

The second one was where the 'magic' happened. I was able to post a whole bunch of posts, like the hundred I have today! I have ten followers at least and have written stories. I plan on writing another book for the Dayton Metro Library Teen Contest next year, The Interstate.

I began to find an interest in being an author, and boy is it fun! I can't wait to publish my books!

Enjoy my hundreth celebration!
