Currrently: Christmas, sickness, and an Announcement


Hello, lovely person! Merry Christmas!

Today's post is going to be a little different. I'm just going to do a life update/what's been happening. I have been really off with my blogging schedule. The thing is, I have posts ready, but I don't have the time to edit them and get them ready to publish. The main reason is that I don't have as much mental energy as of right now, since I have been pretty sick the past month or two. It's literally just a cold/flu thing, but I just can't seem to recover. I'm really trying hard to rest, but it is difficult right now.  I am starting to feel better, and I am hoping I will be well by Christmas. 

Speaking of Christmas, I can't believe it's one week away! Thankfully, I have just about all my Christmas prep done. I was actually able to get it all done in a timely manner this year, which is surprising! (Because that never happens, folks. Ever.) 😛

So besides being sick, I have been working a lot on school and such. Since it's my last year, I really don't want to fall behind. Things are going well, and I'm pretty much on track! I am working on memorizing lines and preparing for the spring play, so I want to make sure I can keep up with it all then too. Oh man, I can't wait to graduate! That will feel amazing! 😁

On a more serious note, we ended up having to say goodbye to our precious dog two weeks ago. He was super loving, and basically the best family dog you will ever meet. He was very loved, and it was a super difficult time. It has taken a week or two to fully set in for me, but it is starting to now. This is the first time I have ever lost a pet, and it is so, so hard. 😢

As some of you know, I have been working on a really big project lately. I wasn't exactly ready to share what it was yet, but I'm going to now! Recently, I was suddenly struck by a late-night thought/inspiration about my writing. I felt the big urge to begin something writing-wise that would encourage people and glorify Christ. I have done a lot of praying, thinking, planning, etc., and I have made the decision to switch to more of a devotional style of blogging. I am not sure exactly what day I will start, because I have a few things to get ready, but it will be at the beginning of the year for sure. My blog has grown over the last year, and I really want to be using my writing for the glory of Christ. So yeah! That's what will be happening soon. 😊

Also, Christmas is in five days!!! *screams* GAH I'm super excited about it!! Christmas is my favorite holiday! We have so much snow, so we will have a white Christmas! The weather is truly frightful...it has been in the negatives for the past few days! I love the snow, but it is pretty chilly for my liking! 😛 Then we have the beginning of a new year, and that is always exciting! 😊

I think that is about all that's going on. I have been really busy the past few weeks, and I think things are about to get busier! I have a really exciting and fun post coming on Friday, so stay tuned for that!! 


Have a lovely day!

  5. Awww, I hope you feel better soon!

    This is maybe the first (second?) year I'm not 100% prepped for Christmas by December 1st. THE STRESS IS REAL.

    I'm so sorry about your dog, love. <3

    Best of luck with the play and your new blog! Will you write purely devotional posts, or will there be some writing stuff thrown in there too? Either way, I'm excited to see it!
