Documenting-

Bucket List

My summer, through my bullet journal! With having to work full time (at least for 9 weeks), my goals and stuff for the summer slip my mind reeallyy easily. (If you haven’t seen what’s in it yet, check: What’s in My Bullet Journal: Summer Edition + What’s On My Summer Bucket List 2017!)

Accomplishing-

To Do ListThings? I feel productive, and I’ve been doing more blogposts? but I’m not really accomplishing much. I have a list of things I need to do, both school wise (college, bleh), and also fun wise (bucket list, crafts to do, etc), and I’m *slowly* going through all of them. (ALSO CRAFTS AND ART ARE GOOD GUYS. THEYRE FUN)

Enjoying-ice

Summer break! I “officially” finish out junior year today (even though I’ve been done for a month) #homeschoolerlife. I’m spending the summer doing lots of crafty things (fun!), and also working -_- (not as fun, but still pretty cool). At least I have more free time (and less brain taxing) than I do usually. Also THE COUNTY FAIR IS COMING UP AND I COULDN’T BE MORE EXCITEDDDDDD

Reading-July TBR.jpg

ALL THE BOOKS. ALL THE BOOKS. I literally have like 30 physical books in my room now that I haven’t read, which literally HASNT EVER HAPPENED BEFORE IN MY LIFE. I’m *currently* reading, though, The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater, which has been so hyped up that I hope it lives up to it. OH, AND IM SO EXCITED FOR OVER MAYA DEAD BODY (by Sandra Orchard) THAT CAME OUT YESTERDAY EEEEEEE

Spending-

Way too much money. These public cafeteria places COST SO MUCH MONEY. Also craft supplies also cost WAY TOO MUCH MONEY. At least I’m making money over the summer TO PAY FOR THE THINGS ESSENTIAL TO LIFE. (but to answer the question: I’m spending money on food and craft supplies)

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.

Happenings-

  • SO MANY BIRTHDAYS. Jeneca, Anna Joy, Aimee, Lindsey, Sydney, Vanessa, Abbiee, and my best friend. ❤
  • My cousin came over and stayed at our house for two weeks! We also went to NYC together, so that was fun. *spouts Hamilton lyrics*
    615351630559786041?account_id=7.jpg
  • I ‘participated’ in my first 24hour readathon, even though I only finished one and a half books
  • Twitter updated. It’s sleek but weird
  • I started my summer internship. Working 40 hours a week is INTENSE and now I know why everyone on twitter is like #TGIF
  • I revealed the pronunciation of my name to the world and everyone was confused

 

 

 

Awesome-

  • This thread happened

 

 

  • The Science Olympiad events for 2018 came out and I got unrealistically excited, particularly because I’m not even doing it next year
  • This

 

  • I found MBTI Bingo Cards and they are the best thing ever. Also, I’m stereotypically ESFP
  • 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

Quotes-

“Basically, I sound like I know what I’m doing but really, I have no idea” ~me when people ask about college stuff

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

“Oh, it’s national army day today? Time to celebrate! …with cookies”

~me

“Come on, let’s go before I cart away the whole library.” ~me, while carrying 20 books

Practicing-

 

  • Spring Song by Mendelssohn, piano
  • Bach’s Inventio 5, piano
  • Moonlight Sonata by Mozart, piano
  • Rondo in D Major by Mozart, flute

 

Blog News-

A *slightly* better month for blogging. I’m only behind because I upped the weekly post count to 3 so that I can catch up on all the books I need to review XD

Planning-paint

On repainting my room and redecorating it! There are so many pretty colours and I can’t decide which one to pick! (Comment down below which colour you would paint your room if you had to pick one, from the selection over there! I literally CAN NOT CHOOSE. (Also lowkey having to pick decoration and stuff is so much fun yet also freaky because I have literally the worst fashion/decoration sense ever XD)

Wishing-

thinking.jpeg

For more time! I start working 40 hours a week this week (more on that below), and I still want to have a fun summer…not to say that what I’m going to do this summer won’t be fun! I’m so excited. 🙂 I’m also wishing for new room decor items (fairy lights, anyone?) and that’s so exciting. 😀

Learning-learners

To drive! I (finally) got my learner’s permit last week (or so), and I’ve been at driver’s ed every day for the last two weeks! We get to watch all these insane videos of teens driving and getting themselves killed, to ensure we follow all the laws and everything. Fun stuff! *eyeroll* (I haven’t *actually* driven yet, but that’s happening soon AIII) *shameless rips picture off IG story*

Screenshot from 2017-06-09 21-43-28.jpgBrowsing-

Modest swimsuit ideas! This year, I’m trying to find a more modest swimsuit than what I’ve worn in the past, and there are so many ideas . . . but they’re all rather pricey. :/ So I’m looking for a swimsuit that’s not above $100 but is also modest. 🙂 One place I’ve really liked is Cover Up For Christ, a swimsuit store by Bree. Her ideas are all so cute! (This is a shot of one of her suits).

Going-work

To work! I’m legit working this summer for the first time ever! I’ve babysat and taught piano, but this is a legit work thing! I’m interning at a lab (doing what, I’m not sure yet lol), and also volunteering at a local museum, which I’m super excited for. 🙂

 

 

What Happened This Month: May 2017

And with that, I’m wrapping another month. This month has been even worse for blogging than it was last month. Forgive me?

WHTM May17.jpg

Happenings-

  • The band concert happened. It was SO MUCH FUN. 😀
  • I took two AP tests in a row and didn’t completely die!
  • AVI KAPLAN ANNOUNCED THAT HE’S QUITTING PENTATONIX
  • I finally finished the essay that was 8 weeks overdue *hides*
  • We went on a trip to the Midwest USA
  • I started Driver’s Ed. It’s freaking boring

Awesome-

  • When your Spotify weekly/daily plays the best music :3
  • The memes after the AP tests. 😀
  • I went to the library and got like 30+ new books and *heart eyes*
  • When you can’t get a math problem wrong because it’s multiple choice and there’s four choices/chances. #winningatlife
  • Being seventeen years old and discussing crayon colours with your friend
    Screenshot from 2017-05-23 21-31-25.jpg
  • Finding a friend in driver’s ed whom you haven’t seen/been in contact with for at least 4 years, and recognizing them

Awkward-

  • When your earphones randomly die while you’re using it -_-
  • Listening to your concert recording and wincing at how out of tune you were
  • Falling asleep for the last 15 minutes of AP Lang multiple choice because you stayed up too late the night before. o.0
  • When you find out the new French president is married to his teacher that he had when he was 15 and she was 39?????
  • When you somehow know what “artiface” was for the AP Lang test, and wrote an entire essay on it, only to not have spelled it correctly once throughout the essay XD
  • When you go to a graduation party (happy thing) and almost start crying because of hormones
  • When you writing essays is essentially you paraphrasing Wikipedia and citing other sources.

That Moment When-

  • You play Spotify to focus and Spotify plays ads. -_-
  • The College Board says to not share testing material, and you still retweet every meme that you see.
  • You’re running late to Driver’s Ed to learn how to become a good driver, and so your mom is speeding XD
  • You wake up in the morning with lyrics of Guns and Ships in my head, and you’re pretty sure you dreamed-listened to Guns and Ships before you woke up
  • You put a book onto your Goodreads to-read shelf, and then later go back to mark it as read, and Goodreads shows a different edition that you’ve read. -_-

Practicing-

  • Spring Song by Mendelssohn piano
  • Bach’s Inventio 5, piano
  • Moonlight Sonata by Mozart, piano
  • Rondo in D Major by Mozart, flute
  • Flute for band:
    • Lincolnshire Posy
    • Suite of Old American Dances
    • The Stars and Stripes Forever
    • Exaltation by James Swearington (what a name)
  • A few jazz pieces for Bari Sax that I play on bassoon for jazz band
    • A String of Pearls
    • Blessed Assurance
    • Carnaby Street
    • Chattanooga Choo Choo
    • Pennsylvania 6500

    • and several others

Yayy, it’s time for another Currently post! Today’s linkup cohosts are Anne and Nancy!

Currently May 17.jpeg

Baking-

Well, nothing at the moment, because IT’S AP TEST WEEK AND IM DYING? I had planned to bake some sort of cookies for my band teachers and stuffs because of end-of-year, but TIME. A commodity I don’t have. (I do have a list of stuff I’m going to bake over the summer, though) 😛

 

Listening-

To a lot of things, at the moment, actually. Classical music for when I’m writing timed AP Lang essays, just ‘regular’ (as regular of music I listen to XD) music when I’m typing up essays and stuff, and audiobooks when I’m doing math (because no words, and it uses a different part of my brain/concentration). I study better with noise in the background, so I’ve been listening to A TON of stuff.

Loving-weather

The spring weather? You know, the 70 degree stuff that lasted one week before it went to the 50s, and then straight to the upper 80s? Fun stuff. Also my band people, because performing and playing music with friends is always THE BEST.

Planting-

I just planted a bunch of succulents that hopefully I’ll not kill XD. I’m also *thinking* of doing some gardening stuff? But I don’t know? Because I have a tendency to kill plants and live things?

Remembering-

Not so much remembering, but realising that ITS THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. Like, not technically, because school goes until the middle of June, but after APs are over and band and Science Olympiad and extracurriculars are all over, it’s essentially over.

Awkward-

  • When your Spotify weekly is ON POINT

That Moment When-

  • When you title your essay “In Which My Brain Started Working Faster Than My Hand and I Started Mispelling Things . . . Then Ran Out Of Time (the title of my memoir, probably)” to show that you’re a serious essayist

    • Pennsylvania 6500

Currently: April 2017 || The Insanity Edition

What would you know, it’s time for another Currently post again! Anne and Jess are hosting Currently this month!

It’s competition season for me (Science Olympiad States is in less than a week, and I’m not freaking out at all)

CurrentlyApr17

Accomplishing-

million-things-i-havnet-done

Lots of things, but not feeling like I’m accomplishing anything whatsoever. It’s competition season (for Science Olympiad), as well as AP season, and lots of things are due and AIIIII.

Guess which gif goes with this point?

 


Feeling-

work.gif

Excited and stressed. Science Olympiad tournaments are like the best things ever, particularly States tournaments. AP tests, on the other hand, are not quite as fun. They’re just sheerly stressful, but I still like studying…so I say…just wait a couple more weeks XD

 

 


Needing-

sanity

More time. And Sanity. And study books would be nice. As well as cookies. And also more time. And sanity. And more time. And sanity. And more time.

 

 

 


flutePracticing-

Flute and bassoon for the concert that’s coming up in like three weeks!! I’m so excited 😀

 

 


Pinning-

Nothing much, really…I DONT HAVE TIME TO PINTEREST OMGNS. I’ve been looking for some Bible Journaling ideas, because I really want to start doing it…but guess who doesn’t have time? Not me?
