Currently_ February2018

Finishing-bookslam.gif

up high school! I got my senior pictures done a couple days ago, and I have about 10 weeks left of school, which is bitter sweet. I’m eager to be DONE with it all but also want to keep on going with the schedule that I have.

Subscribing-kitten

to college mail/news in general? It’s not very applicable to me right now, but I’ve been getting acceptance/otherwise letters and people that need confirmation and all that jazz. So fun. *eyeroll*

Wishlisting-library

BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS!!! I finally got into NetGalley (and with that, Kindle books in general) and got approved for WAY TOO MANY BOOKS!!! Which is slightly concerning since I already have 38 books on my TBR…and too many more on my wishlist.

Watching-

YouTube! My three favorite vlogging families, Aspyn and Parker, OKBaby and KKandBabyJ are together, and it’s so much fun! One of them is pregnant (<-Keren), one of them may be (the conspiracy theories!) and one *should* be (but is not). 😀

Hearting-

My lattes!! I got a latte maker for Christmas (like I’ve mentioned before), and I’ve been trying to make a latte (either of the coffee variety or else of the the chai variety)…someday I’ll get to the fancy pouring things XD.

So! What are you all currently up to? Comment down below and let me know!

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!
    P1120158.jpg
  • 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
    Profile Picture.jpg
  • 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!
