Users Who Hyped This Post

Dear Piczo friends,

We are very sad to inform you about that we unfortunately will have to close down Piczo due to high costs.

We have tried our best and looked under every stone to find a solution but time has run out and we have no options left but to close down since we don't have the resources to pay for all the running costs Piczo has built up. If you want to make a backup of your images/content you will need to hurry and make so yourself before Piczo is closed down.

We are very sad about this and we ensure you that we have and will do our best to find a solution or a new owner.

Thanks for your support,

Piczo Crew

Tell us about yourself and your life:
My life’s not that interesting but here you go-I’m Charmaine, in case you didn’t know, I’m 14 years old, from England and January 22nd is my birthday. My life contains ALOT of dancing, photography, Piczo and tumblr {}. <

I couldn’t live without my iphone. I have a camera called a ‘canon EOS 100D.’ And i am obsessed with ice cream<3

I have lots of pets- a parrot, a snake, 2 husky dogs, a gerbil, 5 horses, 5 cats and a ferret. But i have recently became afraid of my snake cos it looks like a worm and worms are my worst nightmare as well as spiders-.- I also hate trucks, spades, most fruit and vegetables, smelly cheese, whisky, wine, players, liars, the smell of paint, the colour brown, clowns, Justin beiber, English lessons at school, bridges, bicthes, the smell of onions, dolls, needles, the squeaky sound that your plate makes when you cut up some food and sharks.

I’m very fussy and I don’t eat alot. I hate trying new things but I suppose that’s bad thing and I get extremely self conscious and always worry about what people think of me. But i can break a bone or two if I need to;D

When I’m older I reaaaaally want to go to a dance college in London and take part in musicals/shows. It would be my dream life; snm! Oh and also before I die I NEED to meet lady gaga, she is my idol and i love her so much! If you love lady gaga and you follow my blog I will love you forever! xoxox
What inspired you to start blogging on Piczo, and how long have you had your blog:
I have had my blog since February last year. I don’t really know what inspired me to start blogging on Piczo. I used to make websites on here with my best friend and I just came on one day and decided to make a blog.

How did you decide on that nickname and your blog name:
Pahaha, I didn’t think it through at all and I absolutely hate both of them and Piczo should really make it so you can change them because I would any day! PLEEEEEEEEEEASE

Describe yourself with five words:
This is hard... hmmmm, I would say im very hyperactive most of the time, creative when I’m looking through my camera lense, insecure at times, fun to be around and very competitive.

Can you describe a typical day in your life:
School day- wake up, do hair, do my makeup and get dressed. Eat a bowl of cereal, brush teeth, watch TV for a bit, go to the bus stop, go to school, come home, eat some food, watch TV or go on my phone, do some homework, maybe go out, or go to dancing, come home, have a hot drink/milk, shower, watch TV and go to bed.

If someone gave you a million Euros today, how would you spend it:
Well, for a start i live in England, so I’d go to France and spend it on clothes. Or I’d get it changed to pounds and take my family on a holiday somewhere beautiful and sunny. Holidays are the best things in the world to me! I love the feeling when you at the airport ready to go!!!!! OMG!!!!!

Who inspires you:
LADY GAGA! <3<3<3<3

What do you do most when you are bored:
Go for a run... on temple run;)

Can you burp on command:
I wouldn’t know cos to be honest I don’t tend to do that:L

Top 3 favourite movies right now:
The Inbetweeners movie,
the exorcism of Emily rose
and waking Ned.
Do you like to sing in the shower:
Uhh no...

What three possessions could you could not live without:
I know this is really gay... but the teddy i have had since I was two. It’s special because my Nan who means the absolute world to me brought it; also my iphone 4 and my mascara.
What scares you the most and why:
Ummm, it’s a tie between spiders and worms. They’ve always freaked me out and to be honest they’re just gross.

Tell us about your biggest passion:
My biggest passion is dancing; I do it pretty much all day and every day. I dance when I’m sad, I dance when I’m happy, I dance all the time and I love it.

Top 3 songs/bands right now:
Titanium by David Guetta,
Lana Del Ray Video Games

What's your favourite thing about yourself:
The fact that I can get my leg straight next to my ear :’)

3 things we have to see/do if we visit your hometown:
Pfttt, this is bad but i dont have a clue.

What incident – that you can tell us about - made you laugh your head off:
When my little sister was reading earlier today, she kept getting stuck on one word so my dad would tell her what it was and she kept forgetting and my dad was getting VERY stressed out with her!

Which blogs on Piczo do you follow:
I used to follow a blog on Piczo by ‘ravishment.’ She posted some of the most beautiful photos I’ve ever seen and I honestly never failed to check out her blog when I came on Piczo. She’s sadly deleted her blog not too long ago. But i follow other amazing blogs such as:
and lots more:)

Can you share any good tips for blogging:
Just be yourself! Nothing good comes from copying..

And finally, what makes your blog stand out:
 I don’t know to be honest. I think there’s much better blogs than mine, but I try to be creative in all my photography/editing and hopefully people like that:)

thank you very much if you read all of that, and give me a follow please?;D

In the spotlight.

Everyday we see courage. We see courage on TV when a child in Africa gets a job to get income for their family. When someone challenges a bully. Normally we won't acknolage this and carry on with our lives.
Being courageous makes us stronger and braver.

Courageousness is Contagiousness

"Everyday i'm afraid to go to school in the morning. I wake up in fear and i'm crippled by it until i get out the door. When i'm in class i'm completetly tense and shake from my fear. I'm afraid to leave my seat and i always feel like running away when i get the chance. I wish everyone would just look away as i ran out of school and never returned. "

Courage is getting out of your own mind. Letting yourself be free to do whatever the hell you want to do, without any limitations. I found the quote above on tumblr and realised how much it fit the way that i am. We can't allow fear to hold us back, being courageous is the act of having the balls to do things that others wouldn't. Everyday i push myself to school, even though the fear is there. You know why? because fear has the power to break some, but courage has the power to uplift anyone!
so beat the bully, tell the boy or girl you love him or her, Stand up to someone who's putting you down, Wear the clothes you want,stand up to your fear, kick down every door that stands in your way

Beacause ( and i can't stress this enough) being courageous, is contagious. Once we all have courage, we'll never be stopped not by anything or anyone.

Peaceandlovexoxoxo- Bri
This weeks theme is Courage.

Im gonna do my own point of view of this : 

I would say Im courageous because Im not afraid to be different from the crowds. Where I live everyones about the same, and if you step out of that line you're a freak. But Im not afraid of them , they put me down and call me weird but I never back down. They've gotten used to it because they know their words and laughter aren't getting anywhere.

So courage to me is standing out and not being afraid of the consequences and peoples opinions. Proving everyone wrong by doing something they despise or find weird, and embracing it. If you're gonna be different, or do something different, at least do it with courage and confidence. At least show you're all for it. Prove them all. Never give in, never back down.
courage .
In courage-you find no fear and in courage-no weakness does appear
In courage-steps toward danger taken and in courage-strength within awaken
In courage- a hero takes shape and in courage- the villain can't escape
In courage-there is a call to duty and in courage-out of ugliness comes beauty .

Fight those who fight you with Courage! 

Courage to stand up For what's right! 
Courage to stand up For the weak! 
Courage to know when a battle is lost! 

Let the passion rise up and erupt In a firey blaze! 

Be Brave! 
Don't fall to those who are weaker
And whisper with forked tongues 
When your back is turned.

Use your courage to stand your ground
And not fight back, use your courage to 
Forgive those who have wronged you.

Be Brave! 
And use your courage to know when to fight.

i think courage can be shown in many different ways.
and it's personality. everyone has another imagination of courage.
why? - because we are all different -
and courage is one of the things that make us different.

It takes courage in every daily action,   for what each of us is brave in its way.
Some people are brave in schools, pushing your luck every day because haven't studied. There are those who are courageous in sports. Some people are brave in being able to lie to their parents in order to do something they do not share but that makes us happy.
There are those who are courageous in the working world and those less fortunate than us that are facing days in which they have neither food nor water available to them.

The theme is courage: 
"Life is full of bumps- You've just gotta climb you're way out of 'em"
When you're born, every adult and teacher you know thrusts the idea of courage in front of your face and shows you people that you should be like at some point.  The real courage is climbing out of the expectations of others and becoming at one with yourself.  Giving out your ideas, no matter how scary or difficult it may seem.  Never shy away from an opportunity or else you'll regret it for the rest of your life.  That's what courage really is.

Courage is standing up to those who put you down
To make a life even if you're level with the ground
No matter how small
No matter how big
Courage can be found within anything
Courage is the beaver
Determined and safe
Courage is the eagle
Without fear or worries
Courage can be small, big or round
No matter where
Courage can be found
Courage is the lion
Strong and free
Courage is what's inside me
Life is too short. Don't regret anything that made you smile atleast once. Be yourself, beleive in yourself. Be who you want to be and not who others choose to see. Don't waste you're prescious life worrying about what others think. Take a deep, deep breath. Think. Breathe in Breathe out. Share your wisdom. Share your knowlege. Even if it scares you. You have an opinion, use it. Be it. Maybe you will inspire someone. Maybe you will be their reason to smile. Someones' reason to keep going on. Change the world for better. Educate.You where born an original. Don't die a copy.
Life is a Courage !
Courage to do something extraordinary, to fight with diseases, to make people stand on their own,
 to believe in someone, to fight against all odds.  Life is a Courage !
