“No Comment”

pumpkinreveal

A few days have passed since my pumpkin contest post, so I decided to reveal my pumpkin’s true identity… Unfortunately, there is not a winner because no one participated. Believe it or not, my previous post is the first “no comment” post that I have received in four entire months, so it was actually kind of amusing that it generated so many blank stares.

My pumpkin is supposed to be an artistic witch’s hat… Can you see it now? 🙂

Pumpkin Contest

pumpkin2018

My pumpkin this year is definitely scary, and it just so happens to be one of the most abstract pumpkins that I have ever carved… Honestly, I was quite disappointed with it at first, but I have thoroughly enjoyed laughing at myself and other people’s interpretations of what it is suppose to be. Therefore, I am hosting a fun contest on Maysa Rose to see if anyone can correctly guess my pumpkin carving. The winner and answer will be announced in my next post; will it be YOU? Drop your guess in the comments section below and have a safe and Happy Halloween 2018!

Homecoming Memories

Memories flood back from Homecoming 2017 when the five of us made our grand entrance to the school in a minivan with string lights and loud music. We danced until we lost our shoes, laughed until our stomachs hurt, consumed more sweets than we should have, and fell in love with the NYC themed courtyard…

After the dance ended, we were escorted back to my friend’s house where we all enjoyed a bonfire and stayed up until 5:00 AM. That night was definitely one to remember, and memories continue to race through my mind as this year’s annual event comes to an official close. I watch as decorations are taken down from the high school, and I flashback to last year… Homecoming 2017

Autumn Thoughts…

“October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came- The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name. The sunshine spread a carpet, And every thing was grand; Miss Weather led the dancing; Professor Wind, the band…”

~George Cooper

October is inching closer by the day, and the Autumn season has officially begun! I never fail to see the magic of this season, and I love watching the vibrant leaves transform before my eyes. Here is to the apple cider sipping, pumpkin carving, homemade pie season that always brings happy memories…

Enjoy your first day of fall!

College Life

Wow, I can’t believe that I am already entering my third week as a college student. I have had such an incredible experience so far, and everyone has been so kind to me. I am looking forward to continue building relationships with other students, and I can’t wait to learn more from my professors.

I think this is the start of a great semester! 🙂

Last Few Rays

Lately, I have been soaking up the last few rays of summer freedom by: relaxing by the poolside, celebrating a birthday party, taking a trip to the movies with friends, and bringing home a new pet (she is will be featured very shortly). Although dance has been keeping me on my toes, Monday marks the very first day of school. This year is going to be a little different, and my education plan has taken a major U-turn…

After 4 years of homeschooling, I am returning to school. I am so humbled to say that I have been admitted into a dual enrollment program at the college. This means that I should be able to graduate high school with my associates/2 year degree. It will definitely be an adjustment, and I am not sure what to expect. However, I am up for the challenge, and I am looking forward to beginning my first semester at the campus.

Have YOU started school yet? Have YOU done anything fun lately?

Thanks for reading!

The Parakeet Post #9

I think Kiwi found herself a boyfriend… These two have been attracted like magnets for the past few weeks, and I was able to catch these sweethearts on camera during this precious moment.

However, Olive is getting pretty jealous,

and Calypso is just pouting…

*I was glad to host these two beautiful guests on this month’s parakeet post! I hope that you enjoyed this as much as I did. 🙂
