Weekly Wrap-Up

Saturday, January 23, 2016

Hello, lovely humans! Goodness, I haven't done a Weekly Wrap-Up post in forever! My last one was at the end of October, that's so crazy. I don't know if y'all enjoy reading them, but I just love writing these posts up, they're so much fun!

My week has been pretty typical, a good week overall. Everything has been super busy lately, which has been kind of stressful. School, rehearsal, friends, life- it's craziness! It's fun though. To add more excitement to the mix, we've finally gotten snow! I shared that we got some snow flurries on Wednesday afternoon, but then last night we got actual snow! As in, my backyard is currently white. Oh my gosh, I love it. Waking up to everything being white is so much fun, and it's so beautiful. Plus, it got us out of a three hour rehearsal first thing this morning, which certainly didn't hurt my feelings haha! It's been nice to have a day at home to do school and just get caught up on life.

Lately rehearsals have gotten intense, with rehearsals three times a week. These rehearsals are for my sisters' show, but I'm the dance captain, so I go to every rehearsal along with them. It's a lot of work, but it's fun. I'm also doing crew, and hair and makeup for the show, so that's going to be a lot of fun. I love theatre, and even though it's stressful, I can't wait for show week! It's seriously the best.

Oh! Here's a good story for you all- I ended up teaching some dance classes this week! At my fine arts group, I'm in the dance company. There's one teacher for the company, and then there's another teacher for the high school and middle school dance classes. I've taken a class with the other teacher before, and she's also the choreographer for the show I'm helping with, so I know her pretty well. On Sunday, I found out that she was sick and not going to be able to teach her classes on Monday, so...she asked me to teach her classes for her! I was really nervous (some of the students are older than I am!), but it was SO much fun. I really enjoyed it a lot! I expected to be freaking out practically the whole time, but honestly once I started I wasn't nervous at all, and I was able to enjoy it. It was a super fun experience!

Made Me Smile:


Fun Bible studies

The whole teaching thing was so much fun, and I seriously love everyone in those classes so much, they're great. 

Writing almost three chapters of my novel! It was getting really frustrating for a while, but I finally worked out some issues and now I'm really happy with how it's going. 

I finally got my room cleaned up too, and I'm a lot less stressed out now that it's actually semi-organized.



Cold weather. When it's not snowing, the cold and I do not get along. 

Drama. I really hate it. 

Anatomy and I are not friends. I get grossed out way too easily. My teacher has a ton of really awesome stories, but some of them freak me out a bit too much...


PANDORA. I literally just got it this week because I needed music for the dance class, and I'm kind of obsessed. 

The Sensitive Jack Kelly Twitter account. If you're a Newsies fan, it's honestly the funniest thing in the entire world. 

My 5 year journal. It's so much fun, and I'm really proud that I haven't missed a day yet!

The fact that Carrie St. Louis and Ally Fox are going to Wicked on Broadway!! I saw them when they toured and they're both so phenomenal, I'm so excited for them. 

The song "Drops of Jupiter". I know it's old but it's been stuck in my head all week and I just really love it. 


My friend showed me this quote one time at school, and I've loved it ever since. It's just so beautiful. 

This outfit is impeccable.

Pride and Prejudice is life, guys..

Her hair is legitimately perfect.

These made me laugh so hard...if you understand this, you are an amazing human and you deserve a cookie.

I'd love to make a headboard like this. 


How was your week?


  1. I love snow so much, ahh! I thought I was the only one.
    Wow that teaching thing sounds so amazing, I would die if I got a chance like that :P


    1. NOPE! Snow is amazing!!!!!
      Yeah, it was a really great opportunity!:)

  2. i saw a couple of quotes that stole me the other day. 1)If I were to marry a fictional character it wouldn't be Mr. Darcy or Edward Cullen, it would be Gilbert Blythe 2)Rule #7:Don't settle for anything less than a Gilbert Blythe. I have absolutely nothing against pride and prejudice or the twilight series, but these were just like OMG. I totally feel you on the crazy rehearsals, right now I am in Aristocats Kids, but also two different one acts...AND I am writing my own monologue for my history day project. Then I have to memorize it, and make the costumes, plus I have to perform it in front of a "panel" of judges!!!! I'm FREAKED out. All of this will be done by the end of March. The monologue will be performed on Feb. 29, likely before noon. I'm scared!!!!

    1. Cool quotes! Ooh, sounds like you're going to be veryyyy busy. You'll be great!

  3. I've seen the movie Newsies but never the play… but I get the references ( :

    That's great that you get to teach dance! I love teaching things, but my little siblings are so sick of me (they kind of have a clique going) that I don't get to teach people things all that often.

    I get you with the drama thing. There's not too much drama in my grade (well, I don't see it because me and my friends are pretty chill) but I sit with the middle-schoolers on the bus and ahhhhh there is SO MUCH DRAMA I WANT TO THROW THOSE LITTLE IMBECILES OUT THE WINDOW. Ahem, excuse me.

    If you like Pandora you should look at Spotify. It costs money to get it on your phone or iPod (you can get it, but it's a crappy version if you get it for free) but on your computer it's really handy because you can listen to whatever you want whenever you want and make your own playlists for free. Since I use my laptop a lot for my writing it's really handy.

    1. Ahhhh I love you. I've seen the show but not the movie..I NEED TO WATCH IT.

      It was great! Hahaha, ah, younger siblings...they're just the best, aren't they?

      OH MY GOSH MIDDLE SCHOOL DRAMA. XD I get you...I know some super sweet middle schoolers, but there are a couple that literally thrive off of driving everyone nuts with drama.

      Ahhhh I've heard so many wonderful things about Spotify. I really need to get it.

    2. I had to watch it for choir class (while taking notes) so that was a bit of a turn-off, but I still really enjoyed it.

      Absolute best. And I get the privilege of single-handedly watching them this weekend!

      The whole grade below me has problems. Every time I see a slightly normal one in that grade I just want to scoop them up in a big hug and tell them it's going to be okay.

    3. Well that always slightly ruins things. I'm glad you liked it though!!!!

      Oh dear. ...I will pray for you dear.

      I know the feeling. "ITS OKAY YOU CAN DO IT!!"
