WHAT I'M LOVING AND NOT LIKING + what i'm afraid of // I WON NANO + why won't it stop raining


hello all today I am doing a post about random things because I'm a random human. enjoy.

things i'm really liking and why:

THE GOSPEL by Ryan Stevenson. just listen to it.

$0.75 PRINGLES. oh thank you aldi for horribly fattening but none sugary treats (yes I went off sugar again even tho i kinda failed..but hey I tried)
THE NARNIA SOUNDTRACK. i legit can tell you that i listening to this soundtrack over and over again while writing for nano. My book has NOTHING to do with it. In fact, my novel in contemporary and geesh I just couldn't get enough - especially of "evacuating london" I CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE TRAIN IN MY HEAD ITS SO COOL

ALSO I GOT MY HAIR CUT SHORT AGAIN AND YESSS LOVE IT 

MICAIAH READING MY NOVEL WHILE WRITING IT. i never thought i would say this bc you know it's kinda a scary thing, but guys IT MAKES ME WRITE. she is also the most amazing and encouraging human i know so yeah she's great and is getting cookies
*does a handstand and back flip* (not really cuz i cant but)

what i am not liking and yes i'll tell you why: 

LEARNING HOW TO PACK A SUITCASE. why can't I bring my big fluffy blanket and 4 billion books and my pillow and oh gosh a lot of shoes and hahaha this just isn't going to work
RAIN. i'm sick of it. I think we got 4 inches of rain over the weekend? PLEASE GO AWAY

CHECKING OUT AT THE LIBRARY 2 MINUTES BEFORE CLOSING. i always feel so guilty. It's like IM SO SORRY and then they lock the doors on you and it's like *cringe* 

FEELING LIKE MEGA TIRED. you know that feeling, when your eyes literally ache and burn and you sit there like slapping your face just so you can walk to the kitchen to eat something

what i'm afraid of and yes i am afraid of things: 

DOGS shhh i mean LARGE ANIMALS. they just give me a look and my heart does a flip sink thing and it's like ehehehehehe BYE

NOT FINISHING MY NOVEL BY THE END OF MAY. it's like this major goal. I want this novel to be done and printed in my hands by the end of of this month. It may be crazy but i'm trying. WHO WANTS TO WORD SPRINT WITH ME
(actual footage of me and my writers buddies after nano)

FALLING OFF OF MY BIKE. i never thought i would write that. but. uhm, i haven't ridden a fast bike in a long time and I got Earhart to like speed super duper fast and suddenly I had a flashback to the bike accident that gave me the nickname "CRASH" and slowed down. 


--------------

ALSO CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT ITS THE MONTH OF MAY NOW WOAH WHAT

and yes this is a horrid post I'm eternally sorry but blame it on the fact that I've been going to bed at 2 a.m. all week hahahaa #ineedsleepbutbooks


WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?? 
FAVORITE MUSIC SOUNDTRACK?

  4. This post is awesome! I love it!
    Oh yes! packing a suitcase! I really need to start that, but my parents are still gone on THEIR vacation, and *giggles* they have the suitcase we're gonna need. But I started a list of things to pack and I'm like... Am I gonna fit all that!? But I need all that stuff! I haven't even started a list of things I'm gonna WANT. Like, books... my stuffed donkey... if he doesn't fit I may cry. (I promise, I don't still sleep with him at seventeen years. Nope, nope. *winks* but hey! It's hard to break a 17-year habit *laughs*)
    Rain? *is sitting here in my swimsuit* *laughs* Sorry.
    Favorite music soundtrack? "The Man From Snowy River" without a doubt! You must listen to this! (and watch the movie if you haven't ;P) My aunt plays some of the songs on the piano and THEY'RE SO BEAUTIFUL! Especially "Jessica's Theme".
    The main theme is amazing, but not so much on the piano -- cause in the movie it has other instruments that just make the song. ;)

  6. OH dude. Dogs can totally be scary. One of my friends has the HUGE dog, he claims he's a lab, but I'm pretty sure he's part dinosaur. x) Like, idk it's weird. I have to know the dog to feel comfortable around it, I'm not an animal person where it's like, every animal, big small cute ugly, I LOVE IT... nope.

    One of my fears? spiders. Lately I've been imagining spiders randomly (weird, I know. welcome to my mind), and I'm just GAH! And then my cruel older sister sent me this spider gif............. *shudders uncontrollably*...

    But yeah, happi day. And then movie soundtracks? Those two words and "favorite" do NOT go in the same sentence. How about.......... ALL OF THEM ??? I can't chose man *cries* (I know I'm being slightly dramatic , o whale) it's like... asking me chocolate or chocolate? UHMMMMMMMMM can you repeat the question? lol. However-- yes there's a however-- LISTEN TO THE SOUNDTRACK FROM GLADIATOR. AMEN AND YOU'RE WELCOME.

    Great post, loved it. xD

  8. Haha, LOVED this post, Julia, my friend. xP
    Have you ever seen the movie 'Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium'? Well, it makes me cry every time it's so beautiful, and I've been listening to that one lately. Also, 'Ratatouille' (ever seen that? You should. I recommend every movie that I like.), and 'Howl's Moving Castle', which is a movie by Studio Ghibli. xD
    I'm pretty scared stiff of heights. And if I'm alone and have just watched a scary movie -- the dark. Other than that...uuuuh, failing. Disappointing people I look up to. Slapping myself in the face because my comments are so long and I literally just r-a-m-b-l-e. ;p

  16. Whyyyy do you not want the rain? That's sad, honestly. (in actuality, though, I know what you mean - it can get kind of sickening after a while. I just happen to love it abnormally much, and I absolutely adore when it lasts forever and ever. xD)

    Also ahhhh that top picture. Pinterest aesthetic, right there. *nod*
