Hello everyone! I have been thinking lately of how much fun I have been having writing blog posts and connecting with other bloggers and growing my little blog family. It’s pretty cool to think that 300 people actually care about what I write. It’s both a small and big number at the same time. Small cause growth is always on the horizon, big because it’s like a quarter of my town. 😛
Anyway, it got me started about why I blog. So, I wanted to tell my wonderful three hundred followers and anyone else who happens to read this post, that I appreciate you guys so much and why I blog.
Starting to Blog:
Back in 2014 I started this blog for school. I started an online homeschool curriculum for high school and all the students had blogs on which they would post the weekly essays for the various subjects. It was a really great way for students to help each other out, parents to read essays, and a unique way of gaining confidence in writing (see here for how it helped me).
After 3 years of high school and essay posting (visit my menu and explore my earlier days of essay writing, some of which is memorable, most of which I would like to forget) I graduated high school and started college. That summer I had vague thoughts on how I wanted to blog through college, but once college actually started the stress overwhelmed me and the blog was lost under the mounds of homework.
Then, second semester around, I kinda re-vamped it.
- I had learned far better how to manage school, stress, and life (probably the most valuable skill learned in college lol)
- I wanted to monetize the blog and make money
- I remembered how much I had enjoyed writing posts on baroque music
Quick note: I am starting my sophomore year of college as well as a new work-study job today! (yay!) And I just wanted to wish all other college students or anybody else going back to school GOOD LUCK! You’ll do great! Also, my new posting schedule is going to be Mon/Thurs, so look out for those! ❤
Here we are again! SMILE cause it’s Monday! 😀 Love you guys! ❤
When life gets tough, the tough get going!

Hey guys, so I started bullet journaling this month. I’ve always loved planners and using them and everything! Along with pens, it was kinda an obsession. But anyway, who cares? It’s sooo fun! Then I found out about bullet journaling. And I started, cause why not? I got a lot of inspiration online and then meshed it with my own imagination. These are the results. I will post a monthly bujo post. I have definitely gotten better since I started, so my August one I would consider my worst (other than the first page). And you’ll have to wait till next month to see better! (It does get a lot better!) 😛 I am trying to get all my spreads done through December so that I have my first semester planned out for college. I have figured out a few pages I like and then my monthly/weekly spreads. So stay tuned for the upcoming monthly bujo’s! I am so happy to share them with you! Let me know if you do bujo, we should be friends!
Here is August! Enjoy! ❤ Continue reading
Hello everyone! I’ve gotten a lot of new followers lately, which is so awesome, thanks so much! ❤ I figured that you might have questions to ask me or would like to get to know me better, so I want to do a Q&A!
Leave a comment asking me anything! The more the merrier! Also, I would love post ideas that I can plan for, because school starts in a couple weeks and then I need them planned! 🙂
I can’t wait to read your comments–I will be answering them as soon as possible between now and Wednesday. I have my wisdom teeth surgery on Wednesday so I will be out of commission for a bit! (Wish me luck, I am a little nervous. Also if you’ve had the surgery, any tips?)
Ask away! ❤
