August Highlights // 2016

Wednesday, August 31, 2016
This month has been absolutely crazy and I feel like I'm 10000000 years behind on everything. I started this post thinking, "oh yeah I have a couple days to write this" when I quickly realized "NOPE IT HAS TO GO UP TOMORROW MORNING." 

Ah, typical me. Let's do this. 


SO LIFE WAS CRAZY. (I already said that this month was crazy above but it seriously was crazy so I just need to say it again.) Honestly, this wasn't the greatest month of the year. Between vacationing for a week, starting up school, working twenty hours a week, blogging, betaing several novels, and trying to get up the energy to write, it's been insane. I feel like I haven't been able to take a full breath for awhile. But I'm working on it, and trying to make a way for more writing time in September.

After Realm Makers, my family and I went for a week to tour Washington D.C. It was hot and busy, but also fun -- especially taking pretty pictures.


August 17th was my one year anniversary of listening to Twenty One Pilots. That was one of the best things of the month, because the band is so encouraging and their music can just speak to my heart in beautiful ways. If you watched my vlog, you'll see that I got twenty one pilots socks. They're amazing. Soft. Comfortable. Perfect for sliding around on the floors.
(I should've taken a picture of them but now since it's at night the lighting would be horrible so I'll just have to squeeze them in another post a different time. :P)

I officially finished my first shift on the bar at Starbucks! (working on the bar means you're making alllll the drinks.) It's stressful. But in a fun way. And now I have the freedom to make allll the coffee, mwahaha.

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN POSSESSION OF 600+ CHERRY TOMATOES. My dad and sister plant a community garden each year, and every time without fail, it goes crazy. (but at least the tomatoes are very aesthetic for taking pictures?? so that's a plus??)


I already mentioned that school started up and it's not fun so I shall refrain from speaking of it any longer because I do not want this blog to be the place of tears and groans.

On a happier note, I have a new blog design??? Some little things are still getting sorted out, BUT I AM SO HAPPY OVER IT. *hugs the pretty greys and fall colors and asjadkf;l*
Reading was about the same as last month: a flop. I read six books. Which, considering all that was going on, is a good amount. And I was (er, still am...) betaing two novels. So I'll try to cut myself some slack. ;)

I didn't buy any books this month. I promise I'm not even speaking in sarcasm. I am very proud of this fact, especially since I like doing daily visits to Amazon and dreaming about owning allll the pretties on my shelf. (Someday... someday...)

So since I didn't buy books this month, that means double in September? Right? (oh, or not? fine.) Here are the books for this month:


(The good thing about reading six books, is that they line up very nicely on Goodreads so I can take a perfect screenshot. So I guess that's something to be happy about?)

AND ALSO I HIT MY READING GOAL FOR THIS YEAR. I hit 100 books?? Already?? Last year I read 80 total, so I'm not sure how I bumped up my read count so much. But I won't complain. xD

I wrote 7,418 words this month. It's not what I wanted -- I wanted to be done with this evil rewrite (kill it! kill it! :P), but that's not what happened. And that's okay. My new goal is to be done with this beast by the end of September. It's gonna be hard, but I'M READY TO TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE. (<-- so she says with six cups of caffeine by her side and bloodshot, crazed eyes.) 

That's... all that has to do with writing. Like I mentioned before, I have been doing a lot of beta reading. It's a lot of thinking power, but I really do love doing it. Especially when it's my awesome writer friend's novels, because they're the best.

OOH, I got new headphones! They're very awesome and pretty and the background picture below is actually of the inner pages of my astronomy book. (the one thing that will keep me from burning my school books: photography purposes)



How do you know if writing is your idol? Rosalie writes wise words (as always) about this.

I love rap music. I love the author Nadine Brandes. (she and her books are awesome.) So of course I loved her post about finding inspiration from rap music.

Writing a a second draft? Anna wrote about the struggles. (and how you may not actually survive. whoops.)

Wow I sound in an infomercial. Love burgers and fresh fries? Try McDonalds! <--not sponsored but their fries are just really good.


Normally, this is the section where I talk about what's happening next month + some things to look forward to... but I hardly know what's happening tomorrow. So we'll keep the details to include "awesome and epic posts."

Ooh, and I'm going to start bullet journaling. There will be a post on that eventually. *nodnod*

(Also, time is running out to enter by blogoversary giveaway! (super amazing pens and a cute journal. mah favorite. I'm almost tempted to keep them for myself, BUT I SHALL TRY TO REFRAIN.)
(and thanks for all the love on that post. it meant so much to me and I love you all. <3)

How was your month? Are you keeping up with the craziness okay? Am I the only one feeling like I'm in a small reading/writing slump?

    *hugs and pats on back*

    You must have had a rough month. Poor thing. Did you know that you put "September Highlights" in the post image? :)

    Aside from the fact that you nearly gave me a heart attack (along the lines of "WHAT DID I MISS SEPTEMBER, TOO?!?!?) I loved this highlight. Sounds like you were insanely busy. Your new headphones are lovely, by the way. None of my college textbooks are even nice enough to use as a background for pictures. :(

    And yes, McDonalds fries are the best.

    Hope this month goes a little smoother for you. *hugs again and giggles about "September"* :)

  2. Wow, it looks like you had a crazy month. *gives you pizza*

    My cousin always has MILLIONS of tomatoes in summer, they just grow totally insane. Last time I was over at her farm in tomato season we LITERALLY ate them almost EVERY SINGLE MEAL. Including breakfast. It was interesting. By the time I was going home I was kinda over the taste for a few weeks. xD

    Writing slumps are horrible. *gives you more pizza* At the moment I'm not actually in one, but they're still awful. *shudders* It feels so depressing to not feel like you can even get a word out - and writing is what I love doing! Just... *starts eating some of the pizza just from thinking about writing slumps*

    Yay for journalling. I'm completely hopeless at it. I've tried every now and then but nope. It fails. every. single. time. :P

      ...tomatoes for breakfast? Huh. Weird. I don't love tomatoes THAT much. :P

      UGH, right? I WANT to love my story but ajskfl; I just can't write now. And it's so hard to force myself to write. Ugh.

      Journaling. I'M DETERMINED TO BE GOOD AT IT. (even though I'm not. ha.)

  6. I confess, seeing September on the blog picture made me panic for a second. I seriously thought maybe another month had passed by without my consent. XD UGH, TIME, STOP BEING SO RUDE AND PASSING QUICKLY.

    I had a pretty busy month myself, what with school starting (ugh), registering for college classes (we signed up for the wrong one accidentally so it doesn't start till September), and my birthday. I can't believe that you read 6 books, wrote alllll those blog posts, and wrote over 7k! Like...I completely failed and am only in the process of reading book 4 for the month. :P (And we shan't speak of my horrible posting schedule...)

    I WANT THOSE HEADPHONES. *grabby hands*

    Can't wait to see what's in store for September! It already looks like mine will be SUPER crazy so...yeah. This shall be interesting. XP But hey, we can do anything with the aid of pizza. *nods*

    2. Haha, nah, you're good. XD I once accidentally told everyone on my blog that we were a fourth of the way through the year when we were actually a third of the way through. #cannotmath (They actually believed me, though. :P)

      YEAH, IT'S TERRIFYING. D: I'm just taking one this semester: speech. Which, to be honest, is freaking me out excessively. Eheh. WISH ME LUUUUCK.

      Delete
  7. Ack, MY LIFE IS PASSING BY BEFORE MY EYES. I cannot stop it. I cannot do ANYTHING about it, and that makes me mad. o.o

    Like you, I've been reeeeaaally busy. I moved into my new house! It's epic and beautiful (and somewhat peculiar in areas) but I love it. <3 We're still settling in, still not completely unpacked yet, but we like it. :D

    OH OH OH AND WE GOT A DOG. She's a little Irish Setter Doodle, and we named her Piper. Despite having to get rid of some nasty parasites and her having to grow up for the first several weeks amidst the boxes of doom (mwahaha), she adapted nicely, and we love her. <3

    We also dove headfirst into school almost a month ago, and we're getting increasingly busier. And we're trying out churches and youth groups, and I just joined a choir, so life is busy but good over all. :)

    THOSE TOMATOES ARE SO PRETTY! Aaw, I love that picture. <3

    Happy double anniversary - both for you blog and Twenty One Pilots! :D I have NO CLUE when I first started listening to my favorite artists. xD

    I hope you have an awesome, not-as-busy September! And here's to hoping September won't pass as quickly as all the other months had. (very unlikely, but still. xP)

    1. Oh, and YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE IN A READING SLUMP. I've been in a reading slump for the past several months, and that means I don't read /anything./ *crying* Except stuff for school. But I just got my hands on Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl, and HOPEFULLY that'll yank me out of it. ;)

    2. Commenting yet again because WAIT YOU WENT TO D.C.?? It's epic there. o.o I lived there before Nevada which was before where I live now (I know, confusing) and D.C. was skfjlsdkj SO AWESOME. Which museums did you visit?

      Delete
    3. Moving and dogs and new Churches and school and GOOD GRACIOUS WOMAN YOU HAVE SO MUCH GOING ON. o.o In just life! That's not even the blogging world! HOW!? :P *sends you caffeine because you probably need it*

      TONIGHT WAS MAGICAL BECAUSE I WROTE 1,200 WORDS AND I AM IN THE MIDDLE OF AN AWESOME BOOK SO I FEEL VERY PRODUCTIVE AND THIS HASN'T HAPPENED IN SO LONG. xD

      Omgoodness, Heartless is amazing. And even if you don't like Heartless, the rest of the series is even better. (Heartless is my least favorite.) So do stick with it. *flailing* I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU THINK OF IT.

      You've lived in so many places. o.o
      Eek, it's hard to remember all the names. xD Air and Space, Smithsonian, Spy museum, Holocoust, Newseum, and all the popular landmarks. :D

      Delete
    4. Haha, yes, it has been busy... but now it's settling down some, and we're gettin' settled.

      OH OH KATIE I'M SO GLAD, YAY FOR GETTING OUT OF CREATIVE SLUMPS! :D I'm excited that you're starting to get back into your reading/writing groove!

      YES, it is. o.o I've only read a few chapters so far, but... I'm basically wordless?? I never knew such flowing and pretty and MAGICAL writing was possible. o.o And I usually don't like fairytale-esque stuff a whole lot, but this... yeah, I do love it. :D

      Ahh, those are all such amazing museums! Those names triggered many memories. :') I remember the Holocaust museum especially... that one moved me so, so much. So glad you had this vacation! :D D.C. is certainly a place to remember.

    5. Oh, and when I lived in D.C. I went to a sunrise Easter service at the Lincoln Memorial. :')

      Seriously, girl, this visit of yours has triggered a wave of memories on this end. :P

    6. RIGHT?! Anne is one of my favorite authors and I aspire for my writing style to someday be as gorgeous as hers, because her words just flow and they're so pretty and asjfda;. MAYBE SOMEDAY I CAN BE THAT AMAZING. xD

  8. I still can't fully grasp the fact that August is over.

    OMG YAY FOR WORKING ON THE BAR that's super cool! Alllll the coffee sounds wonderful!

    Those tomatoes are beautiful and very aesthetically pleasing indeed.

    Well maybe you didn't read as much this month but 100 BOOKS YAY *flailing and pizza and confetti*

    Those headphones are amazing and I'm kind of in love.

    Ooh yay for bullet journaling that's fun!

    Congrats on reaching your reading goal! Now hopefully, you will allow yourself a little breathing period to relax. Oh, and you should definitely do that bullet journal post (no rush, though)! I've been thinking about doing that recently. :D

  11. Writing slump? Absolutely. Reading slump? Storms, no. I read more this month than I have in absolute ages. (And I need to get my Doings post up today . . . and I have class . . . help!)
    How was The Crown's Game? I never got around to reading it, and I'm not sure how sad or otherwise I should be about that.

    And sadness at the thought of September.
    I JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS RIGHT NOW UGHHH.

    Anyhow. YOU WENT TO D.C!!!! I went there in May and it was so much fun <3 Where all did you go? IT WAS JUST SO MUCH FUN THOUGH GAHHH. Like the Air and Space Museum and the Lincoln Memorial and all of it <33

    TOMATOES!!!!!!!!! I live in the country kind of? I don't know, but we always have like an abundance (key word: ABUNDANCE.) of tomatoes. AND ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS the amount of cherry tomatoes is like quadrupled from the regular ones. THERE IS SUCH AN INSANE AMOUNT OF THEM. And I LOVE IT. I don't know, I just really love the smell of tomatoes? THEY REMIND ME OF SUMMER AND HAPPINESS AND FRIENDS AND GOOD THINGS. (probably because I have too many memories attached with picking tomatoes. wow. no one says that even. WHO HAS MEMORIES WITH PICKING TOMATOES?
    meh. guess this country person does.)

    BUT TOMATOES. YES. YUM. And they're really good and healthy which is nice. Yes. :)

    YAYY I LOVE YOUR NEW HEADPHONES THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL. Oh yes, and I relate to the slump. I was in a writing slump for the LONGEST time but I think I'm starting to get over it. I AM SO HAPPY. And reading? Hmm, I actually haven't done a TON lately. SO many of my friends were talking about a Christy Miller series or something? I don't know, I read the first book and ha. ha. ha. I really, really don't like it very much. IT INFURIATES ME. Well, kinda. It's not ALL that bad but GRRR IT GETS ON MY NERVES. AND I COULD RANT FOR LIKE THREE MORE COMMENTS BUT THEN YOU MIGHT GET TIRED OF ME SO I WON'T.

    1. RIGHT?! WRAP UP POSTS MAKE ME SO HAPPY. I know that some people hate them but they are my favorite thing ever for some reason. It's just a really nice way of seeing how the month went for people and keeping up with their lives.

      YUS I went to all of those places as well! Gah, I wish we went in the same month. I would've died getting a chance to meet you. xD (two ENFPs in the same room would be hilarious. xD)

      (okay and I just love how you basically rambled about tomatoes forever and it makes me giggly and happy xD)
      YES I actually haven't picked any tomatoes... whoops... but I WILL NEED TO! Last year when I picked them we had an incident with a snake in the garden and it was rather terrifying but simultaneously hilarious. xD

      I love eating the cherry tomatoes with basil and mozzarella cheese. mmmmm.

      I've heard of that series. And... eh. I'm not that interested in reading them. :P SO YOU'RE NOT ALONE! (well, maybe I would love them but they just don't seem to be my type of book.)

    Making all the drinks would be semi terrifying but amazing at the same time. I actually had a nightmare that I had to run a Starbucks by myself one time. I think that was a sign I needed to go to Starbucks a little less frequently.

    OH MY GOSH SO MANY TOMATOES. 0.0
