It’s been awhile

Apple orchard

Hello.

It’s been awhile.

How have you guys been? I know this isn’t the first (unintended) hiatus that I have taken this semester, and it probably wont be the last if I’m honest. However, I really hope that you guys stick around because I am not abandoning the blog! Life has just been quite crazy lately…

I have spent more hours in the school library than I can even count, and chemistry is definitely proving to be an “adventure.” I like all of my classes and professors a lot, but the work load/studying is much more intense and time consuming than previous semesters. I also took my SAT this morning, and I am beginning to narrow down universities that I want to apply/transfer into. I am really anticipating the score because it was my first time, and I really wonder where I will end up… On the other hand, I forgot to tell you guys that the college, where I am currently dual-enrolled, has selected me into The National Society of Leadership and Success!! I am incredibly honored to be a member of this reputable program, and I am so humbled for the opportunity.

Lastly, The Nutcracker will be brought to the theater in one month, so that is quite nerve-wracking. Rehearsals are well underway, but there is still a lot of work that has to be done! I will be sure to keep you all posted, and I hope that you are doing well. Also, an October playlist will be released very soon, so keep an eye out for that…

What have you been up to? How are your classes going so far? Are you a member of the NSLS? Are you planning on watching or dancing in The Nutcracker this season? Thank you for reading this super long post if you are still there!

Let’s Talk: Q&A

IMG_6908

Hi guys! I don’t think I have ever done a post like this before, but I have seen other bloggers do it and wanted to give it a try…

This post is intended to allow you (readers) to voice your questions, feedback, suggestions, post requests, or anything else you might want to share in the comments below. If I get enough questions, I will dedicate an entire post filled with the answers and recognize the names of the inquirers. Even if you just want to say ‘hi,’ I would love to hear from you!

Let’s talk. The comments are open! Ask away!

*Please note: I will only answer the questions that I am comfortable answering, so I wont respond to the ones that invade my personal privacy/safety. Thanks for understanding!

Embarrassing Moments

choreo

We have all had those moments where our faces turned bright red, and all we wanted to do was hide in a corner and pretend like nothing ever happened. After some time, though, our embarrassing moments become quite amusing and are quickly developed into stories that we laughingly share. I am constantly embarrassing myself, and I have more embarrassing stories that I can even count. However, for the sake of your reading (and my reputation) I have narrowed it down to 4 embarrassing moments that I will share today, so I hope you enjoy…

“Maybe a hundred bad days made a hundred good stories
A hundred good stories make me interesting at parties”

“100 Bad Days” song by AJR

/Parking Problem/  

It was only the first or second week of school, and I did an absolutely terrible parking job (crooked and literally on the line) right in front of the building. Then, another car came and parked on the other side of me which completely pinned my car in. I got dangerously close to the cars with every attempt that I made to move, and the driver of the other car paid no attention to me. I hollered out my window to get some random kid to help because I was desperate and had to get to class. Considering how big our campus is, I thought I would never see him again, but he happens to be in my English class this semester. We are actually really good friends now, but it is never ideal to be remembered by lack of parking skills when you formally meet someone for the first time.

“Oh, I remember you…” 

“Yeeeeah”

“Walking” on a Red Carpet

I made a grand entrance to my first prom by nearly face planting and tripping twice on the red carpet… I will admit that I constantly trip in the hallways at school, stores, and pretty much everywhere else, but who trips going into prom?

Direct Flight

I was at lunch with a group of people that I had just met, and we didn’t know each other very well. We decided to eat outside, and less than 10 minutes passed before a bug flew directly into my eye. I didn’t make a very big deal as I tried to handle it myself, but everyone was at the table started freaking out as they caught sight of my eye. All I will say is that it was a big bug. The waitress even ran over to see why they were all so upset as I quickly/embarrassingly fled to the bathroom to wash out my eye. It was swollen, red, and burning for the remainder of the day... Talk about embarrassing! Honestly, I still cringe at this memory.

Where Is All The Popcorn?

Please tell me that I am not the only one who almost always drops popcorn down my shirt at the movie theater…


Can you relate to any of these? Which moment did you find the most amusing? Feel free to drop some of YOUR embarrassing memories in the comments below (if you would like to). Also, photo credits to my friend, Claire! I know this has nothing to do with the theme of the post, but I still thought I would share because it is a pretty neat capture of my rehearsal. Have a fantastic week, and thanks for reading this lengthy post!

Happy Easter 2019!

I hope you all have a very blessed Easter 2019!


Get ready for a post about prom 2019, blogger award nominations, embarrassing moments, choreographic adventures, and so much more. I have tons of upcoming post ideas, so don’t go anywhere!! Thanks so much for reading, and Happy Easter!

Liebster Award and Nominations!

Thank you, Kaelyn, for giving me this awesome opportunity to participate in the Liebster Award 2019! It is so fun, and I am so happy to do this again. Readers, I have nominated eleven of you to participate (if you wish)… Keep scrolling to find out who!

Rules:

1. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you for this award.

2. Answer 11 questions the blogger gave you.

3. Give 11 random facts about yourself.

4. Nominate 11 blogs and notify them.

4. Give them 11 questions to answer

Kaelyn’s Questions for Me:

1: Do you like cats?

I am actually allergic them… They are so cute though!

2: Do you like Sonic?

I can’t even remember the last time that I ate at Sonic, so I have no idea. 🙂

3: What is your favorite book of the Bible?

I am going to be 100% honest and tell you that I actually haven’t read the entire bible yet, so I can’t really choose a favorite. 

4: If you could have a mystical creature for a pet, what would it be?

Definitely a Hippogriff!

5: Do you like to read? Why or why not?

Yes and no. I love reading during the summer months when school is out, but unbearable amounts of reading assignments/textbook pages have absolutely destroyed my passion for reading throughout the year.

6: What is your favorite subject at school?

This semester, I think my Marketing Management class is my favorite because it is so neat to learn about how businesses survive in such a competitive environment. It is really stretching my creativity as I learn about things most people don’t even think about!

7: What is your favorite shoe brand?

Right now, I am loving my Laredo western boots. I literally wear them every day… 

8: Do you prefer salty or sweet foods?

I have a serious sweet tooth, so I would choose sweet over salty any day.

9: Chocolate milk or regular milk?

I have never really been a chocolate milk fan (surprisingly), so I usually prefer regular milk. HOT chocolate is another story though.

10: Rollerskating or iceskating?

Ice skating never gets old. 🙂

11: Icecream or frozen yogurt?

Hmm… I think I have to go with ice cream.
