Hey there! Yep, I'm alive. I really didn't intend to take a two and a half week hiatus from blogging, and I even had a post drafted and ready, but it just kind of...happened. I'm okay with it, though. Life has been crazy but wonderful, and sometimes you just have to take a break from the internet, y'know? I think that sometimes it's good for the soul to take a break from emptying your brain onto a screen, and just letting all those words swim around in your head for a bit. It's kind of freeing to give up on keeping up. I've missed you all, though! It will be good to get back into blogging more consistently. This has been a weird blogging year for me, but I promise I'm not disappearing completely. Just working on finding that perfect balance.
Since I've been gone for forever and a day, here's a little life update for you-
-Theatre has come and gone, and it was beautiful. It was one of the best experiences of my entire life, and I miss it already more than I could put into words.
-I met my dear friend Mary Shelley in person, and can now confirm that she is in fact one of the cutest human beings in the world and an actual sunflower. She also sent me snail mail and it absolutely made my life. If you don't follow her blog, what are you doing with your life???
-Life in general seems to be swirling and changing faster than I can get a grip, and it's kind of overwhelming and a bit terrifying. But I know that it will all be fine, so I'm just working on breathing and letting go.
-Writing is..um..exhausting? I'm trying so hard to finish my novel, but it's just been almost excruciatingly difficult. I'm mainly just making things harder than they need to be. I've finally reached the end of the story, and it's kind of technical, and I think that I'm just psyching myself out. This story is my baby, and I'm scared to mess it up, y'know? So I'm trying to push past that at the moment. I've had some really great writing days lately, though, and I feel like I'm finally getting back into the groove of it again. It's exciting.
-Spring is here and I'm loving the warmth, even if pollen continually makes me die.
-I got my prom dress (!!!) I found it at a thrift store for $7.50 and it's exactly what I wanted which makes me really happy.
-School is making me want to claw my eyes out. It's amazing how one horrendous teacher can ruin everything. As much as I don't want the year to end, I will be beyond thrilled when this English class is over.
-Semi freaking out about finishing up junior year? Like, the thought that next year will be my senior year absolutely blows my mind and breaks my heart all at the same time.
-Bagel dates just generally make life better, no matter what's going on.
-I'm battling the post-show depression by working on lots and lots of projects, and it's going quite well. Let's just say, I'm definitely never bored, haha! But hopefully some of them will have some really cool results, and I might even have a few things in mind for this blog. ; )
-I am supremely behind on all of your blogs, and I'm so sorry about that. I'll be catching up as soon as I can!
-I'm planning to do tons of reading, which is making me happy. I'm so behind on my Goodreads challenge, it's ridiculous. What's your current favorite book?
-EASTER IS TOMORROW!!! I'm so excited, y'all. I love Easter. ♥
-I would love to write more here but I am drawing a blank due to the fact that I've written for seven hours today and now have to go and write more. School + novel = exhaustion.
So, there's a mini peek into my life! All that to say, I'M BACK! So now I want to know, what have I missed out on?? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS! And I want to hear all about YOU! Tell me some exciting stuff going on in your life. I want to hear ♥♥♥
