I’m going to stop trying to write a blog post everyday. I’ve been trying for months, but have failed miserably. I struggle every day to finish what needs to get done and that doesn’t leave much time for writing. So I fail. I find, at the end of the day, that I have nothing to write about. I stopped actually trying a long time ago and now I realize why I never got back into writing every day.
I don’t have something good to write about every day. I could write everyday. I could write a blog post about some random thing or thought. I could slap together a post just long enough not to make me feel like I’m slacking. I could do that. But I don’t want to do that. I want my blog to be an overflow of what I’ve been thinking and learning about. I want my posts to be better thought out than they are now.
I really did want to make my old plan work, but I ran out of steam rather quickly. All of a sudden I felt like I had nothing to say. I felt dried up. I didn’t want to continue this blog. I think this new plan will free me to think about what I’m going to write. I want to observe and synthesize the world and my experiences and then write about them here.
Maybe someday I’ll have something to say every day. Maybe I never will. Either way, I want to be writing about my experiences and thoughts. I want to be sharing my opinions and passions.
Today. Another day of cleaning the house, doing laundry, playing Destiny, and watching videos about YouTube theories. Life, isn’t it great? 🙂 I’ve been looking back at the week today and determining what I think about it. I’ve decided that it was pretty great. It started off with coming home from camp and being a bit sick, and became another school-filled week of my life.
Next week I’m going to D.C. I’m pretty excited about it. I can’t wait to visit all the monuments and museums. Especially the museums. ❤ I love museums so much. I have been visiting them since I was quite young and they hold a special place in my heart. I love wandering around, looking at the different exhibits, reading about the different exhibits, and basking in the glorious quietness that is a museum.
It is 74 degrees out today. The sun is shining down onto a world where the grass is getting greener, the wind is blowing sweetly, and it seems like summer should be around the corner. I know it’s going to get cold again, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy today. 🙂
I love sitting outside on the porch during these first few warm days and watching people pass by my house. I do it all the time, but it’s more fun when there are people outside and the weather is nice. I’ll bring out some schoolwork or a book, but most of the time I just end up watching the world pass by. I love to see kids come home from school. I love to hear the train whistle. I love to hear the squeak of the school bus breaks. I love to imagine that maybe it really is May.
I love blue skies and warm evenings. I love sunny afternoons and cool breezes. My favorite thing about warm weather is that it lifts my mood. I could be having a terrible day, but at least it’s warm outside and that means it’s not a terrible day after all.
I know I should be writing on this blog more and so I am going to try and write a blog post every day for an entire week. Perhaps I’ll accomplish my goal this time. 😀
Here’s a song I like: Your Life Over Mine . Also, I just really love Tessa Violet. ❤
I love playing my ukulele whenever I have a spare moment. I love pulling up the tuning app on my phone, adjusting the tuning knobs ever-so-slightly so it’s tuned just right, and deciding on a song to play. I’ve memorized some songs (Intertwined by Dodie Clark for example) but then there are songs that I have look up the tabs for. I love learning new songs and I love making my cover of the song all my own.
One of my all-time favorite songs to play has to be U.F.O by Coldplay, because it is such a lovely song and sounds slightly magical on a ukulele.
I love my ukulele because it’s always there whenever I need a break from everything. I can go up to my room, shut the door, and just play for a while.
I finally took the ACT on Saturday morning and when I got home from taking it I felt like a great weight had been taken off my shoulders. I could finally think about having fun again and doing something other than studying for that test! One of the first things I did that afternoon was make a plan for things I want to accomplish in the near future. I want to start editing my book, read a chapter of a book each day, get each day’s schoolwork done, watch classic movies, read my Bible every day, and practice my ukulele. Those are just a few of my goals.
Since Saturday I’ve started on a number of my them. I’m already back into a rhythm with school and I’ve started editing my book from NaNoWriMo. I’m still working on reading more but I did read for a while yesterday, and there will always be goals that I don’t accomplish. That’s okay. 🙂
I’m so thankful the test is over and done with. I don’t have to think about it again for awhile. I’m so happy I almost feel like summer has come early. I feel so free. 🙂
P.S – I also watched La La Land on Saturday night and it was AMAZING. I’m sort of obsessed with it now… 🙂 This is my wallpaper:
Such a gorgeous movie… ❤ ❤
It’s not going well. Not well at all. But here I am. I’m trying to stay positive about my test, but it isn’t working out too well. Everything seems to be crumbling around me. I can’t focus. I’m tired. I wish I could go back in time and live last week over again. I would study better, hang out with my friends, and take steps to ensure that my overly emotional self wouldn’t come out like it is right now.
I haven’t written a blog post in nearly a week.
I haven’t written anything “for fun” in about a month.
I haven’t read Return of the King for a few days.
I’ve been missing out on social gatherings recently.
I’ve been feeling spaced-out and a tiny bit down for a week or two.
It’s been another long week.
I’ve come to accept that I’m not going to get a lot done until after the ACT, but it still sucks. I wish I had time to do everything, but I just don’t. I know this test isn’t really that important. I know I life can still be great without a college education. Still, I’m studying for a big test and it’s taking a lot out of me.
I got a Twitter account this week, played Destiny, and wished I was with my friends when I wasn’t. 😦 I took lots of pictures with my new phone. I studied a lot. I read a lot. I finished reading 1 and 2 Corinthians. I’ve done a lot this week. I’ve been productive… but I still don’t feel like I’ve gotten anywhere.
Ugh. I feel like my blog has turned into a dumping grounds for my emotions and contains nothing fun or helpful whatsoever!
