andddddddddddd since the whole goal thing didn't work out so well, I'm not doing it this time around. Also, I've decided I won't have any set expectations for myself for 2017..that will only lead to a disappointed me... no, instead, I'm going to run into 2017 with a grin and take what comes, cuz that's what I learned in 2016. 

hello 2017


any big hopes for 2017?
what made you laugh from above??

  1. Goodness gracious, Julia--you made me cry (on the inside...).
    I don't have any younger siblings (ugh, it's a hard-knock life), so I can't relate--but the 'ADORABLE' section was just fabulous. The 'SCARY' was brilliant, and 'HYSTERICAL' was amazing.
    I haven't yet learned to have big goals and not high expectations, maybe this is what I'll learn in 2017. :)

    Keep it up,

    1. ohhh Amelia!! I don't want to make you cry - but I guess crying is okay too. lol! I just prefer laughter to come from my posts LOL!!
      OMW YOU LOVED MY POST BASICALLY EEEEEEEEEPPPPPP *jumps up and down*
      sooo then what are some of your goals?? ;)

      Delete
    2. Goals? Hmmmm...I love writing, I want to get super far in my book this year--maybe even finish it. A year is a long time until you get halfway through it--that's what I've learned. I have about 31,691 words in my novel (nothing compared to 80k, I know....). I'm also a singer, and I want to get better at singing + piano. And I also have some of that drama that comes new with every year, gotta handle that--right? XD

  4. omw, I didn't think you would actually use that quote from me 😂

    That 'no internet' game tho. Sometimes I turn off the internet on my laptop just to see how far I can get. With practice, I can make it to the spot where it gets dark, then I accidentally kill the dino.

    *is not ready for Christmas to be over* *resolves to keep my room decorated until Mom tells me to pack everything up*

  21. THOSE GIFS ARE GOLD. Especially the Princess Bride ones. And really the whole style of this post is fantastically funny.

    Oh gosh... there's so many amazing things that could happen this year that I don't know which one is the biggest. Maybe... two of my friends are moving to the US and there's a fairly good chance I can see both of them.
