Happenings-

  • I finished out my Junior Year!
  • The Bright Eyes Podcast came out AND ITS SO SO AMAZING GO CHECK IT OUT NOW.
  • I FINALLY CHANGED MY TWITTER HEADER from *cough*the blogmas header *cough* (but I AM rather proud of it, @HanneasinHannah check it out XD) AND ALSO MY USERNAME ON BOTH TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM (HanneasinHannah now on both!)
  • I FINALLY GOT (kinda) CAUGHT UP on commenting on other people’s blogs!!! (lol if you see literally 7 straight comments from me on your blog…..*hides*)
  • Working 40 hours a week still and now learning to appreciate why people like the weekend so much
  • I got sick and almost froze to death at the place where I work beCAUSE APPARENTLY IT’S NECESSARY TO KEEP THE AC AT FREEZING
  • I got my first legit paycheck ever!
  • But also on the same day I got my paycheck I threw my phone across the room and the screen shattered
  • Starting to sort through college stuffs and boy…it’s interesting
  • BACK TO SCHOOL STARTED ON YOUTUBE AND IT’S NOT OKAY
  • I had a dream where I met Leane in real life but she introduced herself to me as Anne, and I didn’t recognize her until golden hour
  • Free Food Day 2017 happened and I got free chick-fil-a and also free 7-11 slurpees
  • FREN TIME
  • I tried a bookstagram challenge and it worked for 6 days

Awesome-

  • The Bright Eyes Podcast. Literally, what more can I say? GO LISTEN TO ITTT
  • GETTING YOUR GOAL SAT SCORE AND NOT HAVING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE *hallelujah*
  • A summer where YOU ACTUALLY HAVE A/C IN YOUR HOUSE AND PRAISE JESUS IS IT THE BEST THING EVER
  • Listening to a playlist of Hamilton and Moana and admiring how well Lin Manuel’s writing flows together
  • Filling in forms for your local homeschool group where you don’t have to be all formal
  • Cooking the perfect amount of macaroni so now obviously you’re certified to be an adult

Awkward-

  • That part of the clothes cycle where you wear black t-shirts everyday so no one can tell if it’s the same shirt or not
  • When it’s 2am and you still haven’t listened to the 30 minute long Bright Eyes Podcast yet but still manage to do it, even if you’re working a full day the next day
  • When you collect 6 assorted glasses etc from your room so now you’re basically the model for the World’s Most Rebellious Teenager™
  • Signing up for the SAT on the last day so all the nearby high schools have full seats and you’re going to have to DRIVE 70 MILES to get to your SAT
  • Really really wanting to reveal to The Internet™ where your general location is but Creepy Internet Stalkers™ tho
  • Reading “God’s covenant” as “God’s covfefe” so now y’all know I’m very spiritually attune
  • Responding to a customer who said “Have a nice day!” with “thanks, you too!” instinctively, then without realizing, saying “Have a nice day!” back to them again
  • Writing “As a high school student” but deciding to change it to “as a student” bc it’s college, but typing “As a high student” instead.

That Moment When-

  • When you listen to Bright Eyes Podcast at 2:30am with moths at your window, rain falling, in the dark and being straight up paralyzed in fear
  • You discover that Julie Andrews has a daughter whose name is basically Emma Watson Hamilton (it’s Emma Walton Hamilton, but who’s checking?)
  • You’re lying in bed with no pants on because that’s clearly how you adult
  • You meet a friend at youth group whom you haven’t seen for literally 6 years but you feel like you know each other because of Instagram and the leader is going “???” because of how teens communicate these days *eyeroll*
  • Trying to take a screenshot to show your cracked screen. Needless to say, it didn’t work

What Happened This Month: June 2017

and thus concludes another month. It was an eventful month: the end of the school year and the beginning of summer (and work); it was a month of many, many birthdays of people I love. It was also a good month for my twitter analytics, apparently.

  • I ‘participated’ in my first 24hour readathon, even though I only finished one and a half books

  • Reading A Series of Unfortunate Events, and seeing everyone who’s already read it on GoodReads and feeling like you’ve entered some Secret Reading Club
  • Being much too sassy for my own good on my Music Theory notes
  • A little boy at the grocery store who was so happy that his mom bought him his very own drink that he waved at me

Awkward-

  • When you’re at work writing to-do lists of all the things you’re going to do when you get home, but then actually be at home on social media because the wifi at work is terrible
  • When you’re cleaning out your backpack and find a bunch of gum…all partially unwrapped at the bottom
  • Being in the campus library with your backpack upstairs to keep from eating all the food before 2pm
  • Accidentally walking in between a gay couple holding hands in New York City
  • Accidentally being in New York City the week of #NYCPride and being inundated with RAINBOW EVERYTHING
  • The week you’re off work, the office does pizza, team building, and escape room
  • Overhearing two ladies talking about being on their period . . . then seeing that they’re wearing white and pale pink pants
  • Light green and purple scrapbook paper. Like ??? UGLY MUCH???

That Moment When-

  • You’re off twitter for ONE DAY and have to spend 45 minutes catching up
  • There are calluses on your dominant index finger and you can’t type with it on your screen
  • You’re not a gambler, but you wore white jeans
  • One small thing suddenly reminds you of how much you miss something you didn’t know you missed 😭😭💕💕
  • YOU ACTUALLY HAVE A LEGIT PILE OF BOOKS TO READ LIKE WHATTTTT
    July TBR

“I’m going on a keto-diet! No bread, nothing!”
