About

Hello! It’s me! Attempts not to sing Adele Welcome to my little corner of the world!

About Me.png

Well…I guess you clicked the “About Me” tab to find out a little more about me, right? So let’s begin.

A little about me-

I’m a high school junior, and I have been homeschooled my entire life.

I live in the world (how’s that for ambiguity, mom?) with my two parents, two siblings, and several fish who hide when I try to count them.

I am a daughter of the one True King, and this is what I believe. My life’s mission is to bring glory to God through my actions and my words.

By day, I’m a student, a blogger, and a musician.

By night, I’m asleep. Usually. I’m fairly well known for having odd sleeping schedules.

My hobbies include knitting, crafting in general, reading, and photography. I also do lots of weird stuff, and you can find a conglomeration of that scattered all over this blog.

I am an ESFP, which means that I can be “found spontaneously breaking into song and dance” and that I can “get caught up in the excitement of the moment, and want everyone else to feel that way, too”. (from the 16 personalities website). I share my ESFP-ness with my best friend.

I like a lot of types of music. For Christian music, I like Francesca Battistelli, Chris Tomlin, and Laura Story. For secular music, I like Meghan Trainor and Taylor Swift. For soundtracks, I like Into the Woods, the Sound of Music, and Fiddler on the Roof. For groups, I like Straight No Chaser, Cimorelli, and Beethoven’s Wig. For people-on-YouTube-who-are-really-good-at-music-and-make-covers-and-maybe-write-songs, I like the Piano Guys, Pentatonix, Megan Davies, and Peter and Evynne Hollins. Also anything that’s Celtic/Irish, Classical, or Christmas. Particularly the latter.

I sing when I have a song in my head, or in my heart, although I have been told repeatedly that I cannot sing. Usually, you can find my wandering around singing tunes of some sort.

I love answering queries with song lyrics.

I’m also a flautist and a pianist, with a bit of bassoon and violin scattered in also known as I can’t play either but like to think I can

I want to be things. I want to be a photographer, I want to be a writer, I want to be an artist. I can’t do any of those things, and I’m a-okay with that, because that’s just who I am.

I am a goal setter. I set New Year’s Resolutions, School Year Goals, Bucket Lists, Monthly Goals, Quarterly Goals, Weekly Goals, and all the goals.

My happy place is the library. Or Barnes and Nobles. Anywhere with books. I am a big book person, and I may or may not shock all my librarians when I tell them I read 168 books for the summer reading program.

I can often be found reading historical fiction with no romance, mystery series books like Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys (I read series because I know no one dies), and classics for school, which I do my best to like (but THEY SO BORING!)

You can usually find me studying, either for school or for Science Olympiad, which I love with a passion, or else on the Internet procrastinating from studying.

I’m a huge grammar Nazi. I can’t stand people who use “u”s or “we r here”s in their writing, and I majorly cringe everytime I see someone use the wrong “your/you’re” or “its/it’s/its'”.

I’m weird. Wait, I’m LIMITED EDITION. But I’m just weird. Okay. I’m so okay with that, because that means I can do stupid things and can use “I’m weird” as an excuse.

I don’t discriminate against colors (that makes me weird, right?). I particularly like light blue/turquoise/aqua/colors like that, but I ain’t sayin’ anything.

If you’re really bored, you can google “RockandMinerals4Him” for stuff about me. If you’ve read to here, I applaud you and hand you chocolate.

Now, it’s your turn. What do you like? Who are you? Do you blog? Drop me a comment down below and let me know!

    • Hi!
      Haha, that’s the best part about homeschooling “You’re done with school!” “Okay, mom, so am I ‘graduated’ now?” 😛

      I’ve read a couple books by Robin Jones Gunn. I don’t think that I’ve read enough to judge her books, but I haven’t disliked them.

      Wow, we do have a lot in common! I’ll definitely have to check out your blog!
