Hey guys! :) How are ya'll? What have you been up to lately?

Lately I've been busy with...

Schoolwork- so far, I think Sophomore year was harder than my junior year... but I could very well have a different opinion in just a little while. :D Anyway, I don't necessarily love the classes themselves this year, but I have two of my classes with my friends, Jacob and Candace, so I'm happy about that. :)

Chemistry and reading for literature. :)

Play Practice- Every Wednesday morning from 10:00 to 11:45 we have play practice. Our play, The Phantom Tollbooth, is next Friday and Saturday, so we've really been getting ready for that! :) I think we're all ready, we just need to practice as much as we can between now and the play. :)

Youth Group- I have youth group Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00. I love my youth group so much! :) It's one of the things I look forward to during the week. :)

My awesome friend/one of my youth leaders at my church, Erin! :)

Catalyst- Every Sunday evening from 5:30 to 7:00 we have catalyst.  Which is what we call our Bible study. :) I love catalyst! :) It's so awesome! :)

A picture my friend, Emma, (not my sister! :D) took after catalyst last Sunday! :) For some reason this picture is brighter on here than on my iPod, lol! :)

So, that's what I've been up to lately! What about you? :)


P.S. I promise I'll try and get the vlog up very soon! I'm really sorry for the delay. :(

Hello guys. :D

So... by now you've probably read the post below this one. :)

That was the job of my lovely sister Emma.  She hacked onto my blog, and changed my background. :D So, good job Emma! I applaud you, but at the same time, am cringing at the greasiness of that bacon. :D A worthy opponent! :D







Moving on, now.

Life Lately!

Hi guys!

How have you all been?  I've been pretty good, though I've been busy with homework, chemistry specifically (that rhymes. :D)

I will put the vlog up soon! I filmed it about a week ago, but it's too long to post in one video (think 40 minutes long), so I have to separate it into three parts, and I haven't gotten around to that yet. :( But, I will try to very soon! :)

Lately I've been:

-Doing homework
-Going on Instagram
-Reading and just finished The Iliad for my literature class
-Just started The Odyssey
-Reading Canterwood Crest for fun
-Started writing a new book
-Going to church and youth group
-Loving God, my family, and friends.
-Wanting to meet this girl in person for the second time
-And wanting to meet this girl in person for the first time
-Sad that summer is over, but also ready for fall! :)

That's what I've been up to! :)

What have you been doing lately?

Have you heard any of these songs before?  Which ones are your favorite? :)

Have a great day!

I didn't make any. :(

16. Guest post on someone's blog. Check. 
I guest posted on Ice Girl's blog and Sierra's blog. :)

27. Re watch The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Lord of the Rings in order. 
No, we didn't get to do this. :(

28. Have a photoshoot.
My sister and I didn't get to it. :(

29. Eat at a new restaurant. 
I don't think we did, that I can remember. :)

30. Dog sit my aunt and uncle's new dachshund puppy, Buster. 
We didn't do this, but he came over a couple times with my aunt, uncle, and cousins just for the day. :)

31. Go back to school shopping with some friends. 
I didn't go with friends, but I did go with my family. :)

32. Exercise at least once a week.
This was a complete fail, lol. :P I did good at the beginning of summer, but not during the rest of the summer. :P

So, I think this summer was really good, better than last year. :) There were some hardships, but also good times. :)

Have a great day!
