Pottery Painting!!! 🖌️

Hey guys! The other day I went to paint some pottery with my family! I had done it once before when I was younger and painted a bird. This time I think I did much better, and I had much more fun! I highly recommend trying it if you have a pottery place near you!

So here are some pics. I painted a flower bowl that I use for my jewelry and I made the little flowers into earrings! So fun! There’s also a couple extra pics from things my siblings painted!

What I am/have been/will be doing :)

Hello! I hope your summer is going great, like mine! Here is some stuff that I’m doing right now, and hopefully you enjoy my little life update! 😀

In May, after the semester finished, I did get a job. I really enjoy working and having a job to do (or school) and I also wanted the money. 😛 Obviously…. lol However, I ended up quitting a couple of weeks ago, due to some circumstances at work and stuff, and now I am actually really happy I did that! At first, when I quit I wanted to look for another job because I like working, but I didn’t. I realized that for the past couple of years I had been working or doing school non-stop and I needed a break. So, I am really grateful I am in the situation where I don’t need the money to live, and I can just take the summer off. So that’s what I am doing! I think I did need a break before I started sophomore year in college and it’s really nice to just chill. I haven’t done that in so long. You know, even when you have a vacation or you get a weekend off or whatever, you still feel like you have stuff to do and you never fully relax. So it’s super awesome to be able to do that now!

So now I am enjoying the summer. The heat has finally hit us here in MT. It’s been so cool for the past few weeks, and the 4th was the coolest 4th I have ever seen! It was like 60 degrees F! So, yeah. The heat has finally come, it truly feels like summer, and I am just really finally enjoying it! I get to go out, do fun stuff, read lots of books (which I’ve been missing), and watch movies…it feels like a permanent weekend. It’s great! So I hope you can enjoy your summer as well, wherever you are! Read more…

Happy 4th!!!

All I wanna say is…….

 

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!

 

I hope you guys all have a wonderful 4th. Enjoy your families, love your country, and don’t forget the BBQ, fireworks and our beautiful 🇺🇸. Happy 4th everyone!!! ❤ 😀

How Cucumbers Changed My Life…

Yes, I mean it. Cucumbers did change my life. For real. Not clickbait. Find out the whys, hows and wherefores:

I have really bad seasonal allergies. I am allergic to pretty much everything at least six months out of the year. But this year has been the worst so far! Last month (pre-cucumbers) I basically looked awful: I was puffed, my eyes were red, swollen and itchy, I sneezed once every minute, my sinuses hurt, I had headaches, etc…. I basically felt like crap and I’m sure some of you guys can relate.

So, one day I went to the doctor (which I am always reluctant to do because I’ve tried it before and non of the allergy meds they have given me have worked) because my eyes were soooo bad. I mean awful. I got prescriptions eye drops, but the pharmacy wouldn’t have them ready till the next day.

That evening my Mom (God Bless Moms!!) told me to put some cucumber on my eye. I had been putting cold clothes on my eyes and stuff, but it hadn’t really done anything and my mom thought cucumber wouldn’t warm up so fast. So, I agreed and went to sleep with some cucumbers on my eyes like a magazine cover. 😉  Read more…

1st Time Voting!!!

Hello everyone! 🙂

I voted for the first time today, in our state’s primaries. It’s something that’s not a big deal on the outside, it’s just a piece of paper. But it really made me think how lucky we are to be living in a democracy. We are so fortunate to be able to make our choice heard, count and determine the future of our country.

One vote may not seem like a lot, but it’s one more toward what you believe in. Not voting is giving the opposition a point. By not voting you are not opposing their vote. It’s so important to vote. We should never take it for granted.

So anyway, it was pretty exciting to be able to vote for the first time! Yikes, that means I am already 18….I feel sorta old. ;P It’s great though. I love growing up.

I am also working on a post with life updates and really nice ‘story time’ one. So look forward to that! Hope you all are enjoying summer cause I sure am! ❤
