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 summer, 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 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!!!!

Sip!

Oh, the wonderful world of acronyms. SIP stands for Senior Inquiry Project… at least it does in my English class. Our last quarter of senior year, we’re spending the quarter researching an essential question. Mine is: How does solo travel help one discover themselves? It’s a pretty big question with too many answers, so I started at a bigger scope. I researched why people travel in general. Most of the reasons were leisure or work, so that answered that question.

But not everyone travels only for vacation. Many people up and leave their normal lives behind to seek something greater than what they know. Obviously, the most popular travel stories are Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and Wild by Cheryl Strayed. But like I said, I wanted more than just the stereotypical travel stories. I wanted to hear everyone’s travel stories that I possibly could; however, I knew that was unlikely. I’m still doing that project now, and still researching why people solo travel.

So to end this post, I have some questions for you:

Why do you travel?

Do you solo travel often?

What travel has made the greatest impact on you?

Also, let me know if you have any recommendations for books, articles, essays, etc. I would love to hear feedback!!!

Spring Fever

As April is approaching us, I’m starting to get spring fever. School is almost out for me, and that means graduation is almost here!! Spring is a time of regrowth. I love seeing the outside world come back to life. The days stay light till around 9pm, bonfires are to be smelled everywhere, and you don’t have a care in the world. Spring also makes me want to clean and get rid of things I no longer desire. I love being able to sell things and have space in my room.

Spring is full of freshness. Flowers are blooming, vibrant colors are to be seen, and summer is on the horizon. I used to not like spring as much, but now it’s starting to grow on me. I have about one more week left until my spring break and I could not be more excited. I’ll be going to Universal Studios in Florida and I can’t wait. Ohio weather is very unpredictable and it’ll be nice to have sun and warm (hot) weather. Ahhh.

What’s your favorite part about spring???

 

Writing about Writing

I love to write. Obviously. It saddens me when people hate it. Writing is something that is never gonna go away, so you might as well get used to it. And I know, everyone dislikes certain subjects; however, writing, more specifically grammar, is something that reflects on you. When you apply for a job, college, etc. Writing and grammar are always right there behind you!!

But writing can be something fun! Seriously. Try writing about whatever you want, and I promise you it’s not as awful as you think. Writing for school isn’t always fun, understandable. But make the best out of writing. Please don’t hate such a wonderful thing!! There are so many incredible writers out that. I admire them all dearly and aspire to be incredible as them one day.

Some of my favorite authors are:

Charles Dickens

Elizabeth Gilbert

Cheryl Strayed

Ahh!!! Writing is amazing. You should love it, too!! Keep on writing>
