Update on My Life

Hello! How are you? Some of you might have started school already or are dreading it. I'm still trying to face the fact that summer is slipping from my grasp.  I'm already doing my math. (Did I mention I'm a high school freshman this year?) But it's not all that bad because I like algebra. I might hate it at the end of spring, but right now I like it.

I just finished The Giver. Wow, that's a great story. I figured I would read the book and then watch the trailer so I could tell the differences. Well, let me just say.... I could hardly tell it was based on book. Expect for simple facts, there was almost nothing. It was disappointing since, honestly, one of the only reasons I read the book because I knew Taylor Swift is going to be in the movie. The weird thing was I can understand it. The book was a little dull. It might have needed a little spicing up in order to be a movie. Still...

The good news is before school starts, on Friday, we will be going to Savannah Georgia for summer vacation. Finally, I will get to see the ocean. I'm quite excited about the whole thing:) We're going to be there for more than a week so after Friday, I'll taking a little break. If I'm correct, Bernie will have a guest post or two on her blog. I might post... if I get the Blogger app.

There's something else I'm very excited about. This morning, I reached 59,000 words on my story. Which means, I'm almost done with the first draft! I made it a goal to finish a story this summer and yay! For once, I will have completed by goal. This might be 7th or 8th book I've started and finished. Too many lay in completed, but when ideas rain on you like a thunderstorm, it's harder to stick with an idea. Bad habit of mine. Yes, the story needs help, but I love it anyway.

Something I've learned once again from editing my novel is... If you really want to get published, you have to have unconditional love for your story. Even if they drive you crazy and keep you up late.

Speaking of my Taylor Swift obsession, she is going to perform her new single on August 18th. At least that's what I think. If you follow me on Pinterest, you know I love Taylor Swift, mostly because... well... a lot of reasons! My dream is to go to a Taylor Swift concert. We're driving through Nashville so I hope to see her there.

Well, there's a little update on my life for you. Like I did a few weeks ago, I'm going to post some songs I'm obsessed with!

This has to be one of my all time favorite worships songs. It's SO amazing!
Royal Tailor's new single! They said hi to us during their Youtube chat. Ever since the album came out, I've always loved this song. So please listen to it. These guys are my favorite Christian (and band) of all time.
In Christ,


  1. I'm taking algebra this year too...I guess we can either enjoy it or suffer through it :) My first day of school was today...and it was booorringggg. Anyway, you are so lucky to be able to see the ocean! Anyway, if you find my pinterest through the link on my blog...and follow me, I would love to follow you back! I think that is probably the easiest way to do it, if you're interested :)

  2. Algebra is fun, trust me! I've always liked math, and algebra is fun! There are more rules and formulas to remember, but overall it's fun and once you get the hang of it, pretty easy. =D I think I'm taking Algebra 2 this year, but I'm not sure yet. Congrats of finishing your story/goal for the summer! That is a big achievement! =D
