Where I’ve Been || Unexpected Hiatus, Senior Year, College Apps

HELLO BLOGOSPHERE!!

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? (Note the irony of my blog relaunch followed by an almost three-month hiatus XD).

Hopefully I won’t leave this time. HOPEFULLY. So, a little recap since the last time I blogged.

Unexpected HiatusHappenings

  • I started applying to colleges! I also got accepted into my first college!
  • I started [dual enrollment] college classes! Chemistry and Calculus 1…it’s hard but also easier than I expected it to be?
  • And I also started senior year! (WHAT HOW AM I OLD ENOUGH?) I’m only taking 4 classes total this year but somehow I’m still super super busy?
  • I started a new bullet journal! (photos/post coming soon!)
  • I finished my summer internship and my volunteer job!
  • I made pumpkin cheesecake brownies for Halloween!

  • My friend got her license which means that I get to tag along to lots of fun friend things!
  • I drove for the first time. And I also somehow broke the breaks of said car. Which is A++.
  • My parents sold aforementioned car, which is ~20 years old and the car I grew up in.
  • Twitter doubled the character limit, which is NOT OKAY. I AM NOT COOL WITH THIS.
  • It’s Christmas music season!
  • I changed my profile pictures for literally the first time since I started doing internet stuff

  • I become very sleep deprived and have been taking naps almost every day
  • Looking more into my personality and how that influences how I interact with others and how I can help others and stuff like that
  • I found I like twitter the most out of my social medias, in terms of activeness, and Instagram the most in terms of spending time

Music

I haven’t posted since August, so here are the playlists for August through October!

YouTube Videos

A random conglomeration of videos that I saved over this summer.

And that’s it for my recap!

Hopefully I’ll be able to post semi-regularly now, and I may or may not be doing a few collabs soon? I’m also doing a ton of book reviews really soon because my review copies have been piLING UP.

Oh! I’m also doing BLOGMAS again this year! (hopefully, at least) Stay tuned for thattoo!

ALSO! Check out the blogger yearbook here! There are only 5 days left until submissions close!

What have you been doing this fall? Are you applying to colleges? Are you as behind on life (and sleep) as I am? Have you signed up for the yearbook yet?

Let me know down below!

Currently: March 2017 || also Lent 2017, in which I have no idea what to do but want to do it anyways because that’s me

Aaand, it’s another Currently post on the first of the month! This month’s host are: Anne and Carrie!

This month’s prompts are: watching, eating, saying, wearing, and posting! Incidentally, these prompts are almost all things that I’m giving up on for Lent, so I’ll talk about that as well.

also yes, I know the colors don’t match

In case you didn’t know, Lent is the forty days before Easter, which begins on Ash Wednesday (today; also why it’s called that I don’t even know) and ends on Holy Saturday (the day before Easter). Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Here’s the link that I c/ped from XD

Although I’m not Catholic, I’m planning on participating in Lent this year by giving up something(s) (which I’ll talk about in my points)

Watching-

I don’t really watch movies or shows, but I do watch more YouTube than is good for me. XD (Top 5 Favorite Youtubers). So for Lent this year, I’m giving up on watching YouTube . . . except for one channel: Monica Church. She’s prepping for the Big Climb for Leukemia (climbing up the tallest skyscraper in Seattle), and all revenue from the channel will go towards Leukemia and Lymphoma society. I’m really interested in leukemia (I want to be an oncologist some day), so it’s a cause I’m standing behind.

Eating-

Well, I can’t really think of anything in particular that I’m eating. o.0 (BUT RIGHT NOW I’M EATING SUPER GOOD MAC AND CHEESE SO THERES THAT)

But anyways, for Lent, I’m giving up eating sugar. (as in, pure, refined sugar, not like fruit sugar). This one’s probably going to be hard, and I’m going to be eating a lot of fruit XD

Saying-

Saying. . . .that I’m going to die soon. XD No, but seriously, there’s SO. MANY. THINGS. coming up and like, *flailing*

million things i havne't done.gif

lowkey like that gif way too much

Wearing-

Summer AND winter clothes! Seriously, how is it 45 degrees one day and 70 the next?

weather.gif

Posting-

Lots of blogposts and lots of Instagram posts! I’ve been a bit more consistent posting Instagram posts, so I’m actually pretty excited about that!

For Lent, I’m giving up on following everyone on my personal Instagram that I don’t know personally. After Lent, I’ll decide on whether I’ll follow them back (don’t worry, y’all, you guys are on my blog Insta, so you aren’t affected :P)

What are you up to Currently? Are you giving up things for Lent? What are you giving up for Lent? How are you planning on growing in Jesus in March?


P.S. I’m also doing the March Bible reading plan from Little Faith Blog–feel free to join along with me!
