//it’s been a hot second hasn’t it. esp. because this summer literally was h o t. anyways//
things that happened…..
went to youth conference, #UNASHAMED. was a blast.
my perfect little niece was born july 27, 2019. isn’t she precious?
#roadtripped to indy and back twice, to des moines and back once, cedar rapids area once, hobby lobby a gazillion
bestie graduated. i honestly could not be more proud of her. she’s taken some huge steps recently in her life and is just trying to serve God. love her so much. ❤
i got a job!!! think i mentioned before but i work at hobby lobby!
passed my first ever college class, a cna course. 98% was my overall grade. it was good for me but now i’m just glad it’s over, l o l
saw two of my cousins graduate, one of which was third in her class of a hundred in twenty kids (same cousin which wants to go to Harvard law) the other one did well as well. so proud of these two!!!
was listening to my pastor give school orientation. he mentioned the graduation date and i was like “oh yeah! who’s graduating this year again?” and then sat there in shock when i realized it is indeed myself.
my best friend went off to college in a suburb of chicago, which is approximately three hours from here//not happy with her//jk
visited my local community college, got some direction in my life//also a free t-shirt
went to apple fest! so much fun.
went to grandparent’s 50th anniversary party. didn’t know most of the people there but somehow they knew me lol. anyways. spent probably an hour out on the playground, watching a couple of my cousins’ boyfriends wrestle with my younger cousins/jump off the roof of the jungle gym
stayed in indiana with family for a week, which consisted of roaming through a state park, thrift shopping, spending time with two cousins who just got their wisdom teeth out, making friendship bracelets, and watching a binge of cop shows with my cousin
went to three plays—Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, and Murder on the Orient Express. Murder was my favorite, loved the ending.
watched Incredibles 2 on a big screen at a local park–my parents hadn’t seen it before and they really enjoyed it! incidentally, the screen de-inflated in the middle of the movie–it was crazy ^-^
went hiking w/my school through the Maquoteka Caves, which are about a thirty minute drive away from here. crazy fun!
FINALLY BOUGHT+READ THE OUTSIDERS. like THAT’S OKAY I DIDN’T NEED MY HEART ANYWAY
watched a web miniseries called Star Trek Continues with my sister. It is almost e x a c t l y like TOS. sooooooo amazing. All of the feels, bro. All of them. Go watch it. Now.
ate like a ton of ice cream. this great pizza+ice cream parlor in my town has been open for forty five years so they did forty five cent cones all summer.
fell off my little cousin’s skateboard while trying to show off, scraped up my knee pretty bad. didn’t really hurt but then somebody looked at my leg and was like “are you all right?” apparently there was blood running down my leg lol
went camping in a camper for the first time ever with my aunt, uncle, cousins and some friends of theirs–made friends with the friends’ two little boys. they were big soccer players and i was watching a Fifa game with them and they knew way more about it than i could ever hope to know lol. also i learned that i will never be able to outrun a five year old soccer player.
favorite book read: code name verity, by far.
will update soon with favorite scriptures, quotes, etc. sorry for the extreme lateness of this post. honestly, these last couple of months have probably been the most stressful of my life, but i’m trying to get back into blogging.
love you all, and sorry for the long absence.
