Hello, folks! I intended to post more this holiday season….maybe next year. 😀 Sigh. But, anywho, this will be my very last post this year. WHERE HAS 2017 GONE. Ridonculous, as my bestie would say.
In January, I welcomed in the new year with a bang! Just kidding. I was playing Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham and had actually sort-of intended to go to bed earlier but glanced at my phone and it was 12:01. I missed it. Oh well.
During the first few months of 2017, I started becoming a history buff, even more so than I had been before. Though I had my struggles in my math class and seldom enjoyed biology, the World History hour was the one I looked forward to.
NOTE: I am adding this ten hours later because, for some reason, I completely forgot to add that in March I went to Minnesota for the first time and went to the Mall of America with my family and aunt, uncle, and cousins!!! Truly my brain needs help.
In May, I started blogging! Sharing my thoughts and feelings with the internet has became a new enjoyment for me and I’m hoping to continue blogging as much as possible.
Also in May, two good friends of mine graduated high school. Sniff. I did cry at the graduation, if you’re wondering. I also left behind my freshman year–no more biology, yipee!
In June, my big sister turned 17! We spent her birthday in a AC-blasted car traveling through Missouri, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama for a week excursion on the white beaches of Gulf Shores. And then Tropical Storm Cindy hit and we stayed inside for four days out of seven. Twenty-two people in one house–it did go better than I expected, though.
In July, I watched an incredible airshow, turned 15, bought my first laptop, and went to my church’s annual Summer Jubilee. I also got hooked on Nancy Drew Mystery Games and shared a short story on this blog for the first time. And I started volunteering as a librarian.
In August, I posted my first devotional to speak of. I learned what God wants me to do with my life. And a good friend of mine, who, as afore mentioned, graduated in May, went away to college. SNIFF.
In September, I began my sophomore year of high school and watched An Affair to Remember for the first time. And I forced my bestie to watch The Princess Bride and a Star Trek movie. Needless to say, she liked them. AND—I started reading the Ascendance Trilogy! SO GOOD.
In the later fall months I took my first hunter’s ed course. We learned everything from how to cradle a gun to how to skin a rabbit. October came and went. I finished the Ascendance Trilogy. AND I ALMOST FORGOT MY COUSIN GOT ENGAGED. I’m a terrible person. I went to an apple fest–and bought a $15 dollar antique book which I thought might be an original and wasn’t–and almost threw up after coming off one of the rides. Good times.
In November, I published an original poem on this blog for the first time. I also went to a pumpkin patch when it was approximately twenty-five degrees outside. On the bright side, there was a zipline. On the downside, I was wearing a skirt. We had a great Thanksgiving dinner, and I finished almost all of my Christmas shopping on ‘Black Friday.’
December came…and is still here, for today, at least. I played a song during one of my church’s services, which was the first time in about a year. I participated in my choir’s Christmas cantata. I gave and received many Christmas gifts and had a glorious holiday, complete with snow. And now I’m on Christmas break. YIPEEE.
Well, that about sums it up! Next year will be even busier, with my sister and cousin graduating, a different cousin (the one who got engaged in October) getting married, and myself moving into a different bedroom with a roomie for the first time in five years and hopefully starting a summer lawn care business and *DRUMROLL, PLEASE* FINISHING THE FIRST DRAFT OF MY NOVEL, THOUGH HE SLAY ME, IN MARCH! If I stick to my word goals, of course. YAY.
What has happened in y’all’s lives this year? Comment down below to let me now!
Have a blessed New Year!
