July Wrap Up (and llamas)

july wrap up

So instead of having these weird update posts at random times, I’m going to do a monthly wrap up/update posts.  Doesn’t that sound nice.  So people will actually read these things, I’ll try to keep it interesting and give mini reviews of stuff, or interesting blog posts I’ve seen, music I’ve been listening to, etc.  🙂   Continue reading

30 Song Challenge

They say the key to a teenage girl’s heart is through her music.  (Actually, I don’t know if they say that or not, but I said it.)

Anyhoo.  Since you guys have no idea who I am apart from a random girl on the internet, maybe this will help.  (Note: I changed some of these because they were weird or I didn’t have answers for them.)

This is a challenge that’s been circulating the internet, not a tag.  So If you want to do it, do it!

#Hello2017.5

I like making sarcastic posts.  This is one of them.

Recall, if you can, to all the posts around the last week of December/ first week in January.  If you can’t remember, I’ll tell you.  There was lots of “Goodbye, 2016, you were an awful year.”  And “Hello 2017!  I have resolutions and goals and you’re going to be an awesome year, not like 2016!”  Do you remember now?

Yeah.  I got a little sick of it too.  After all, years are just a celebration of making it once around the sun.  Like, YAY!  We made it around again!  I wasn’t too sure that we’d make it this time!  And  by the time 2018 rolls around (it’ll be here before you know it) everyone will hate 2017 and applaud 2018 just because.  

So I got thinking.  (Always a dangerous business.) Continue reading

IT’S SUMMER!!!!!!!!

I have a pressing question.  What do Australians do?  Do they start the school year in September, and then work through the summer (our winter) then get their summer break with snow?  Do you start in April and stop in November?  What happens?  If you’re an Aussie, please comment and tell me because summer without swimming and flip flops sounds sad.  (Of course, it could just be a plain answer, like you start in the same month as pretty much everyone else.) [Edit:  An Aussie was kind enough to give an answer in the comment section. 🙂 ]

But if you’re reading this, that means that I finished school, which to me, is the definition of summer. Continue reading

Summer and Swimming

Hiya people.  It’s almost summer!!!  [It feels like it already, (already had the first sunburn of the season) but we have to wait a few more days for it to be official.]

Sorry for lack of posts…  I won’t even make up an excuse.  So saying, the schedule for this is going to change a little.  Haha, like I had a schedule in the first place… Continue reading

The Many Positions of a Writer

Writers and their weird poses and positions.  This is a widely used guide by all writers about the wheres, hows, and whens of writing places, poses, and times. 

(Warning:  This may be dangerous information for the beginning writer.  If you like writing in one position, at one place, stay away.  You stay just how you are.  It’ll be better for your posture in the long run.) Continue reading

Blue Sky Tag

Hi all of you out there!  *waves*  It’s been a long while.  But I have returned! (From TeenPact, sickness, and school.)

I’ve been tagged with the Blue Sky Tag by Hailey of haileyhudson.wordpress.com.  Go check out her blog, it’s inspiring. 🙂

That means I’m answering a whole bunch of questions, then nominating some more people for my own questions.   Continue reading

A Day in the Life of a Homeschooler

So, apparently people like to read sarcastic posts about homeschooling.  And I love writing sarcastic posts about homeschooling.  Therefore, you get another homeschooling post.

It’s almost summer!!!  All my classes (except the dreaded math) are ending this month!!!  (Huge perk of homeschooling–all my classes end super early.)  That means I’m cramming frantically like the world’s ending  studying for all the tests and trying to raise my grades a few points.  That’s why this post is late.

Anyways, since people tend to think we homeschoolers sit around all day in their pajamas, hopefully this will dispel those myths. Continue reading

Me and Goals (aka, the love-hate relationship)

Let me say a scary word.  GOALS.

Ah, goals.  They’re shiny, impossible things that everyone wants to conquer, but they are kind of scary to because no one ever seems to complete them.

I have too many of them.  And yet I add to the on-going list all. the. time.  

Now, some people might say it’s good to make goals.  People tend to make goals during New Years, but February rolls around, and everyone has quietly dropped those goals.  (Except for the select few that actually keep those goals.  In that case, good for you.)

Here’s the problem with goals.  They tear me down. Continue reading
