The #1 Way to Spread the Good News!

The #1 Way to Spread the Good News

That’s right. I’m talking about God on here. I know in the past I’ve made this blog mostly about writing. However, I just can’t do that anymore. It’s untrue to myself. I am a Christian. I’m not ashamed of it.

And yes, I’ve never been shy about sharing my (frankly offensive to the world at large) opinions, but … God deserves more than the occasional reblog or sly comment. He deserves some real posts!

So from now on, I will occasionally post about things God has laid on my heart or such. It won’t be the main theme of the blog – I couldn’t post consisting about Christian-related things; I’d run out of ideas – but it will happen about once a month.

A Review of California

A Review of California (1)

From the 10th through the 14th of March, we were in California. Oceanside, California, to be more exact. Actually, if we want to be 100% exact, we were on Camp Pendleton (my brother-in-law’s a Marine).

I’ve already done this before and talked about it on my blog, so when I was trying to think of a creative way to recap it all for you, I was running a blank. Until I realized something.

You need to know my opinions on Cali! So … I decided to review it! Only my review method are going to be a little … different. (And by different I mean crazy.) (And by crazy I mean please slap me in a straight jacket.) (*maniacal laugh*)

Some Random Reveries: February 2018

Some Random Reveries

I’ve decided that every month I need to set aside some time on this blog to just … talk. Talk about my life. Talk about thoughts I’ve had. Just let myself ramble.

This blog is, after all, my ‘reveries.’ But how few reveries do I truly post on it? After all, ‘reveries’ are far from professional, and I try to be as professional as I can be. However, I’m not really the ‘professional’ type.

I mean, I’m very professional when it comes to certain things (I make myself; blame my parents*), but … blogging doesn’t have to be one of those things? And I don’t know why I’ve been taking it so seriously because it is supposed to be fun!

*it actually has nothing to do with my parents, but they are convenient scapegoats.

How 2018 Will (Hopefully) Go

how 2018 will hopefully go

Hello Ladies and Gents! It’s finally time to list my goals for the New Year (as well as my January 2018 Dares). Are you as pumped for 2018 as I am?!

However, before we begin, I’d like to invite you to beta-read At Her Fingertips! I talked about this at the end of the last post and gave more details. You can sign up using this form. The signups will be open until mid-January though beta-reading will begin as soon as I rewrite one last scene! (So pretty soon!)

Also, sorry for this post being a little late! I’m sick, and I just haven’t been able to pull myself away from editing At Her Fingertips, to be honest. And I have a couple other projects I want to finish before the New Year, sooo … yep.

How 2017 Went

how 2017 went

Hey there! It’s almost 2018! *much excitement/confusion/anticipation* Can you believe it? I sure can’t. It seemed like only yesterday I was doing that stupid video about New Year’s Resolutions that was super boring.

By the way, ‘Remembrance Day’ is apparently sort of the British ‘Veteran’s Day.’ Which makes that one British book I read called Remembrance make more sense. I was like, “This is a great book, but I don’t see anyone remembering anything?” *is a goof* *is unashamed of that fact*

NOW … let it be known that I have a ton to say in the introduction so that whole paragraph about “remembrance” was in bad taste as now the rest of the introduction will have to be bumped past the original introduction. *has rules about the numbers of paragraphs in the introduction* *shrugs*

Money + Plans for Money + Other Stuff

Money + Plans for Money + Other Stuff

I was just thinking along, minding my own business, when suddenly, it hit me.

I’m going into my last year of school.

After I’m finished, I intend to get a job, save money, and take some community college courses for the first year. And … those are honestly my only plans.

I mean, I want to be an English lit teacher, assuming some amazing guy doesn’t walk into my life (magically) before then, but … I’m not 100% sure that’s really what I want to do with my life.

I Am Sixteen (Goin’ On Seventeen)

I Am Sixteen

Last year I did a post on my birthday which was mostly excited and random and unintelligible. I did some blog tags and then spouted a bunch of random ‘facts.’

However, there was also a ranty section at the bottom where I discussed how my birthday was going awry, how depressed I was, etc. And yes, it didn’t turn out like I’d planned, which was really sad.

However, I’ve decided not to be so pouty (spellcheck says that’s not a word …) about my birthday this year.

This year, the DMV has decided to delay me getting my license until September 6th because it’s “busy.” (And yes, it probably actually is, but I’m pretending that the DMV is doing this on purpose just to break my heart.) And my dog is dying*.

*Which is true, but totally unrelated to my birthday.

Summer Goals + Updates

summergoals+updates

Hello ladies and gents!

First, I’m going to have to ask my friend Lana to forgive me for using her beautiful illustration without her permission. I quite frankly forgot to ask. I did credit her, however. So … am I forgiven?* I’m a terrible person.

Second, this is a kind of random post with a bunch of different stuff in it. There will be some writing updates, some life updates, and some random ramblings. AND, of course, I’ll be having some Summer Goals. Because I came up with another batch. #CantDecide

*No, I don’t actually expect you to forgive me, Lana. You can hate me forever … if you want ….

Pub Prep

Well, that was a dumb title, wasn’t it?

Oh, be quiet. I can title my posts whatever I want to title my posts. It’s blogger’s prerogative. Assuming I used that word correctly. *glares at everyone who questions my vocabulary*

Pub Prep

Pub Prep is short for “Publishing Preparation,” which is what I’m doing right now. (And you thought it was something to do with preparing for a beer-drinking contest … well, think again …) I’m preparing to publish. *squeals*

Okay, yes, I’ve done this before, but it’s more exciting this time because I’ve told myself I’m actually serious about it (hahaha, right). And serious makes things more exciting. #inconsistencies #nothingmakessense

Moanings of a Brain Dead Teen

Yesterday was Easter, and now we have a very light week of school as my dad’s on vacation (#homeschoolcool). And let me tell you, I need it.

My mind is a lot of spinning cogs and gears, all whirling a hundred miles a minute. When you throw in algebra mixed with shapes, ancient languages mixed with translation sheets, animals mixed with science, and add a generous dose of history, government, grammar, and essays, the cogs stop spinning.

I’m not joking. This is not a test. My brain is dead.
