Summer

So, I’ve been terrible at writing. I blinked and, somehow, summer has dwindled down. My summer has been wonderful. I went on vacation, spent time with family, and enjoyed nature.  Disney was amazing, as usual. We stayed for 6 days. It gave us plenty of time to enjoy the parks, relax at the hotel, and explore new wonders we’ve yet to see. The new land, Pandora, is fantastic. Everything is intractly themed. From the ground you walk on, to the floating mountains in the sky. It’s breathtaking. I’ve been busy stressing about college. I’ve come to understand truly how much college costs. I’m broke. Tuition, books, etc, etc. My classes start the 21st, so my blog posts will, yet again, be random. But thanks for reading, if you are!!!

Red, White, and Blue

My past week has been filled with stress, anxiety, and fireworks. So let’s jump into it. 

Thursday-Tuesday 

Some personal/family matters happened that I won’t get into for the sake of other people’s privacy, but it consumed most of my time. Not much to blog about. 

Tuesday, July 4th 

Yesterday I spent the day with my boyfriend and we decked ourselves out in patriotic attire. I love the Fourth of July. It’s such a fun, festive day that can be about family, friends, or whatever else you want. You can spend it doing pretty much anything. And of course, grill-outs and the food make it even better. 
Above you can see some pretty spectacular fireworks from last night. During the day, we went to a festival and had some food. (2 pork sliders with mac and cheese.) It was amazing!! But then we left fairly quickly after the heat was too strong. Later on that night we laid out on the grass to watch some fireworks. It was a pretty mellow day, but still filled with plenty of patriotic events. 

How was your 4th of July?!

Come back next week for another post!!! 

Weekly Updates

So, I think I’m going to start a new thing for this blog: Weekly Updates!! That way I’ll be more consistent with posting, and the posts will be longer because they’ll be covering an entire week. Typically, I think I’ll post them on Saturday or Sunday, but I just wanted to try it out for today.

Last week I decided to go cruelty free and get rid of any products that weren’t. And it was a lot!! Which was sad because I was getting rid of a lot of products, but even more sad that animals were suffering for my products. So I gave the products to my family, and now will only be using cruelty free products. If you’re interested in doing the same, here are some links that provide great information about what companies do and don’t test on animals.

Feel free to navigate those sites and find out information about cruelty free products!!!

Saturday, June 24th was my sister’s birthday. She turned 20!!! We celebrated by decorating her room and the basement in pink balloons, rose petals, happy bday banners, and plenty of BB-8 decor. She loved it, so we (myself and her boyfriend) were happy we could do that. Then we went out to lunch at Red Robin where I had a four-cheese grilled cheese sandwich, and it was to die for. Seriously. After stuffing our faces with delicious foods, we headed over to Top Golf. If you don’t know or haven’t been to Top Golf, you’re missing out. It’s so much fun!!! It’s basically the same concept as bowling, but with golfing. Just look it up. You don’t be disappointed. 

My day ended with a fire. It was a cool, breezy night. I spent some time with my parents, and we talked the night away. 

Well, I know my week wasn’t all that exciting, but look forward to a new blog post Saturday or Sunday. That will start my new weekly posts. 

Check out my social page to find my Twitter, Instagram, etc. I post on there frequently. 

Much love!!!

June 

June is now here. Meaning summer is ~basically~ here, too. My life has been great, great, great until it just recently hit a low point. My boyfriend’s dog passed away, and I’m not going to disclose his personal issues on here, but I thought it was worth mentioning. 

But in other news, I’m trying to start writing for various other websites. I’m really excited to try and jump start my writing career. I’m going to be reading a lot more, writing a lot more, and just doing everything I can to help better my writing. I know all my posts are short, and hopefully one of these days I’ll conjure up some more.

Life!!!

This past week has been crazy, so let’s get into it!! Friday, May 19th, I graduated high school. It was such an amazing feeling walking into the arena. I heard cheering and yells of encouragement. I saw so many smiling faces clapping as families eagerly waited for their child to walk through. It was an unforgettable feeling that I’ll truly cherish forever. Then on Sunday, my boyfriend and I had a joint grad party. It was a wonderful, sunny day. The weather had called for storms all day, and somehow we missed them entirely. The sun was out, but it wasn’t too hot. Everything was perfect. I got to see some of my family that I don’t see often, and he did as well. It was a fun day filled with love, laughter, and celebration. It’s time to see what’s next in life. God has blessed me with this life. I’m truly blessed with my family, friends, and boyfriend. I have an amazing support system. Life is good. 
Sorry for the abrupt change of blog formatting! I’ll get back in the swing of things. Much love!!! 

Graduation 

Well, today is the day. I graduate from high school today. It’s crazy to think how quickly this entire year has gone by. I’m excited for new things in life, but am also weary and nervous. Life has been super stressful lately. Not gonna lie. It seems everything that could *finally* be good for once, crumbles and obliterates to the ground. It’s frustrating, but I know one day it will be rewarding. The future is a broad, endless space where anything can happen. The future allows you to create yourself. God has blessed me with this amazing life. I’m so thankful for my family and friends. It’s amazing to look back and thank everyone who’s helped me get to this point. That’s all for this short post. Congratulations Class of 2017!!!

4 Days

Four more days left of my high school career. It’s weird. It still hasn’t hit me that I’m graduating next Friday. Life is life, and I’m still rolling in stress. I find myself drifting away from writing rather than using it as a reliever. I’m trying to work more on that, as I miss writing. Writing is a home to me. It’s a language that constantly changes, and I fall in love with it every single time. Writing gives me hope. It gives me a purpose. I love creating stories within my writing. This post is short, but I’m adding more poetry to the poetry page. Check it out!

The Night We Met

Here I go again with the slacking of writing posts. I have no excuses. Life hasn’t been super exciting lately, but it hasn’t been entirely awful either. It’s just been a stagnant, bitter, and melancholic type feel. You know? There are 7 days left in my senior year. I graduate May 19th, and I feel there are still a million things I need to do. We got our cap and gown last week; however, it still hasn’t clicked with me that I’m graduating in two weeks. Wow. I’m not quite sure when it will hit me. Of course I felt a little sentimental after the last first day of school; the last first choir concert. All of these “last firsts” haven’t quite hit me either. It still feels like I’ll be returning to high school in the fall.

I’m sure most people don’t quite enjoy reading about high school, and all the random nonsense that I conjure up in my posts, but thank you for reading it anyway. To end this post, I’m going to list some songs that I’ve been digging lately. And you for sure check them out because they’re amazing.

“The Night We Met” Lord Huron

“Knock on My Door” Faouzia

“In Cold Blood” alt-j

“I Keep Ticking On” Harmaleighs

“Only You” Yaz

Hope you’re having a wonderful week. Happy May!!

3 Weeks

Sorry for my absence. I had spring break, and then I got lazy!! It reminded me of how nice summer will be. I only have three weeks left of school, and right now it’s hard getting anything done. It’s hitting me slowly that soon school will be over. It’s scary to think I’ll be on my own very soon.

Ahh. But I’m excited to get life going. I still have things I need to get done for college, and that’s stressing me out. Life is so stressful. But, I’m going to Disney World in July and I’m very excited. I’ve been to Disney so many times. It’s amazing.

Thanks for sticking with me!! I’ll get back into more writing. For the meanwhile, I’ll link some pages for you to check out. Feel free to check me out on my socials Contact Me or get to know me better FAQ.

Spring Fever

Spring Break

Today is my last day of school until I have to come back. Officially on spring break!! I’m going to Florida with my family, and I’m very excited. We are going to Universal Studios, which I’ve been before but am excited to see all the new Harry Potter additions. I’m excited to be on break and to be able to sleep and relax. What’s your favorite vacation spots?

When I come back to school, it’ll only be about one month till graduation. I still have lots of loose ends to tie up before I go to college (Northern Kentucky University.) I’m excited, and nervous. I know I’ll be sad to leave this school, but….. eh….. well not really. I’m glad to get my life started.

Be sure to check out my social medias to see all my photos and posts from my trip to Florida. Maybe I’ll include some in my next post? Let me know!!! Have a great and safe weekend!!!!
