So I’m supposed to do a blog post today, but so much has happened how do I sum up? Time for another update on all the things going on with Anna recently. 😀
Typed some of my handwritten short story “Confidential” into its doc and maybe spent some extra time finishing off that scene. 😛
Babysat my rowdy gang of nephews multiple times, and had the funniest conversations with them! ❤
Started a new blog with my sister… it’s about lifestyle and living frugally.
Pearl and I have been making multiple vlogs and blog posts for it. “brought to you by sleepless nights and hours of pjs” lol
Listened to my younger sisters argue over whether or not a fictional character has a cleft chin or if only the other fictional character does.
I might have spent almost an entire day fangirling over a fellow blogger’s art and deciding what illustrations I need from her for Eagledare… someday in the future.
Am learning how to live with a chronic autoimmune illness. 😀 *fist pump*
Found a bunch of neato new blogs and have been enjoying “stalking” them. Especially the heart-felt poetry on this one.
I decided to join a cool blog party thingy called “Five Fall Favorites” that will be happening October 1-6… I should start thinking about what my posts will be.
I’m doing school. Still. Just doing more each day. Wow.
Stuffed a big envelope full of letters and drawings and got it sent off to a soldier friend. So happy it arrived safely!
Celebrated 100 blog followers!!! 😮
I started the sequel to the middle-grade sci-fi Under Their Skin and so far it’s fascinating! (update: FINISHED! wow. wow. wow.)
Read the first five or so chapters of Eagledare aloud to my forever-fans (aka younger siblings) one night… let’s just say we stayed up waaay too late.
Read the first two chapters to my older sister the next morning. The words sounded immensely less cool in daylight. 😛
I’m fighting the urge to trash the first chapter completely…
Taped up a bunch of random story notes that I keep losing to the wall by my bed.
Filmed a blog tag as a video again… you’ll see it someday. XD
Helped plan, looked forward to, and had a blast at a big night-time laser tag war with my birthday buddy.
Am loving these desert storms!!
I’ve been writing in my journal a lot. Which is happy… because when times are tough or anxious or uncertain I DO NOT journal for some reason… and it’s all of those at times. So yay for actually journaling!
Deep cleaned my room, like, deep cleaned it.
Found out that glow-in-the-dark stars are the best.
I enjoyed exclaiming over the full moon with my ppl and then getting to watch it, fading in and out from behind the deep black/navy blue clouds, all the way home.
I was treated to Chickfila for my birthday by my sweet daddy. ❤
Had plenty of amusing bad hair days that looked amazing by the time it was bedtime. *grumpy face* It’s called “putting your hair up in a bun, sweating because it’s just sooo warm out, and thus accidentally curling your hair”. *grins*
I had all my younger sisters for a sleepover while my room-mate-older-sisters were gone working the elections. We had a fun “talking time”. 😛
Told people about my free audio story The Patriot’s Song!!!
Slowly nibbled away at the special, gluten-free/soy-free chocolate that my really cool siblings gave me.
Shared the end of an ice cream carton with my bro during a tv episode, and we ended up taking turns pouring the last bit of the melted goodness into our mouths. #desperate #funtimes
And I went to my first football game with my older sibs at their college! Now that was a blast. My dear bro took me, and Kate came too. 🙂
I read an entire book the morning after my birthday… Kate and Paul are EXTRA cool for buying me this amAZing sequel to Beautiful Blue World!! 😮
I somehow made room on the shelf for, like, 5 new books. *swoon*
Kate and I are in the middle of reading the sequel to a comic book duology together! So fun!
Also, I had the privilege of attending the wedding of two of the most sweetest people in the world this weekend! My brother was a handsome groomsman, the couple and their families are friends of ours, we decorated the getaway car during a marvelous thunderstorm, then sang random songs on the front porch after dark, and even pulled out some accents and… wigs??!! So good catching up with friends… and being goons together… 😛
So so much more has happened that it’s hard to remember it all; God has blessed me so much these past few weeks!
There were plenty of tough times and anxious happenings, but I chose to focus on this good stuff because then that’s the stuff that will stick in my memory, right? lol And really, overall, it’s been a great few weeks y’all. 🙂
What’s been up with you?
