emerging from hibernation // Q&A vlog to come



HOLA AMIGOS!!! I've been away for soooooo long, but I feel like part of me is missing when I'm not blogging so HERE I AM AGAIN!! Lately I've been unbearably busy (sorry y'all I looked for a synonym but I just couldn't find one *eye roll emoji*) considering all I've got going on, and today I have a few spare minutes to talk to y'all about something REALLY EXCITING:


Guess what??!?!?!?!?!??!?!? I'm doing a Q&A vlog! *excited squeals* (sorry if I disappointed you by making that seem more exciting than it actually is oops.) Thanks to inspiration from Olivia's and Abbiee's really cool vlogs I decided to do one myself. I mean, hey, why not?? I know y'all probably read my writing and think, wow this girl is super strange idk what to think, so why not put a face and voice to all that strangeness?? SO that being said, I need questions because I can't do a Q&A vlog without questions. So please, comment, email, tweet me, dm me, or whatever with absolutely any question you wanna ask me, and I will be delighted  to answer it to the best of my ability :))))


Annnnndddd now.... duh duh duhhhhhhhhhhhh .... y'all are probably wondering why on earth have I been away for so long (and if you weren't wondering that I'm willing to bet that you are now) so I decided to update y'all on what I've been up to lately.

Lately:

Reading: Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman -- I actually started reading this before Harper Lee passed away, and when I heard the news I was about 3/4 of the way through. Y'all, it is such a good book. It's a perfect follow-up to To Kill a Mockingbird, and I love how Harper Lee brings Atticus down to human level. Throughout all of To Kill a Mockingbird, he's seen as a god, basically, which is pretty realistic considering it's from the point of view of a six year old girl. But as Jean Louise [did I mention how much I adore her name?!] gets older, she has to realize that Atticus is human, too. When she visits Macomb as an adult, she finds a piece of herself that she didn't know existed, and by the end of the novel, she's a whole new person. I definitely, recommend it, y'all. If you have yet to read To Kill a Mockingbird, give it a read, and pick up Go Set a Watchman while you're at it.
Jenna Lucado's Redefining Beautiful -- My younglife group is reading this, and it has some really awesome points in it. The author defines beauty as "what God sees when he sees you," and I think that is so cool. Like, when we look in the mirror we want to be beautiful in our terms, but God already sees beauty when he looks at us because of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.

Watching: WHEN CALLS THE HEART. CAN WE JUST TAKE A MOMENT TO FANGIRL PLZ?!??!!?!??!!? Jack and Elizabeth are total relationship goals in like every sense of the phrase. If I had counted how many times I squealed during the season three premiere on Sunday I could fill up like 120000 hands.
GILMORE GIRLS. I FINISHED all of the episodes and at this point idk what to do with my life. And did y'all hear about the REUNION coming up?! SO. MANY. FEELS. 

Eating (can we talk about how much I like food for real please): Since I have the first hour and a half of the day off of school every day, I have this really great routine of drinking DARK ITALIAN ROAST coffee and eating Quaker's organic oatmeal, and LEMME TELL YA if I knew organic stuff tasted so good I woulda started eating it a looonggg time ago. And did I mention organic POPCORN?!?! My dad brought it home from one of his university functions and I am in love (and eating right now actually). I seriously wish someone would have told me organic food could be so good. I could be a total health freak and still eat awesome food!! 

Listening: Hunter Hayes' new album, y'all. Pure gold. A couple of my favorites are Saint or Sinner and Someday Girl. And BEN RECTOR. Can I make a sweater out of his voice and wear it every day?? Is that a thing or nah??

Playing (on the piano): 10,000 reasons, Canon in D, and A Whole New World *cue dramatic disney music* When I'm doing chemistry homework and I get super frustrated (which is inevitable) it is so nice to be able to go sit down at the piano and play my little heart out. It's such a stress reliever, and I love being able to praise the Lord through song while doing something I love.

ALLLRIGHTTT that's about it, folks!! Please comment with questions you'd like to see on the vlog! I will try to stay caught up with y'all. I've been tagged for like 1090840398 things and I just can't do them all, so I may just not do any of them, and I'll answer y'all's questions in the vlog instead!!

  2. Hey. I'm one of your older followers. I've bought two collies from your grandmother, and since we're friends on FB, that's how I get to connect with you. I enjoy reading your blog and find this one especially fun to read. :) I do have a question, but will start with a statement. I really admire your grandmother and am fascinated by her energy. So, how do you manage to keep up with her?

  5. i'm so glad you're back! I love everything about your post. and i really wish wearing ben rector's voice as a sweater everyday was a thing...

    but anyways, for my questions:
    1) Where do you like to buy your clothes?
    2) If someone wanted to read a devotional book or Bible studyish book, what would you recommend?
    3) What advice would you give your younger self or a girl in middle school?

  6. 1 John 5:16-17 talks about how there are sins that lead to death and notes that there are sins that do not. How would you interpret this passage?
