THINGS ARE CHANGING - how life is hectic and how i'm SO SO SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS WEEKEND // DIY UPDATE PICS


its just been one of those crazy hectic weeks where you run and run and run around getting so many things done but the gigantic pile of things NEEDED to be done keeps growing and its like HELP.  It's a neat hectic though. I'm learning so much. I'm enjoying so much. Our house project is going fabulously and I'm in love with how the kitchen is turning out. Absolutely in love. (also absolute is my newest and most used word of late) 

Last night I found out that the other library near us is hiring as well, so I quickly applied to there *crosses fingers* also also also today was like 900000 degrees or something -- work was so hot but on the bright side we got baby potatoes and OMW THEY ARE SO CUTE. After work, Sarah and I ran to our library where they were having a meeting. Its like a meeting where the teens can come and talk over ideas for new events....of course I'm like no longer a teen sooooo #whocares


I also got my first 3 slips into the grand prize box today. uhm. don't ask (UHG HOW IS SUMMER READING ALREADY ALMOST DONE?!??!?!)

We went kayaking on the river on the weekend.....totally forgot to bring snacks or water for the 4 hour trip. #badidea BUT WE DID GET ICE CREAM AFTERWARDS. which was actually 100% accurate bc it was national ice cream day and we didn't even know it. *nods* 

I get to maybe volunteer to be the librarian's right hand lady at the summer reading finale party*coughcough* (more like instant rule enforcer and loud speaker) BUT STILL. this growing up thing is hard but I'm working my way into still doing the things I love -- can't stop me hhehehee

I bought a fidget spinner today. #ifell


ALSO THIS WEEKEND GUYS. oh. my. word. okay so my grandparents are coming for a visit (the ones i visited on the east coast) and its like SOO exciting bc now we get to show them our favorite places and idk. I just can't wait to see them again <333333 

I'm so behind in my word count for nano its not even funny...i had to lower my goal I think twice? It's really hard to let myself do that, but at the moment, life is so full and I'm really loving that and it's okay. I'm still writing poetry and keeping conversations going on in my head with my characters. #writers I will finish this novel -- then I have some new ideas (I think I'll do a post on those later k)

btw MY HAPPY PLANNER WAS SO WORTH THE $23 DOLLARS LIKE IM NOT EVEN SORRY I SPENT THAT. (i mean still its expensive *cough*) do you guys want me to do a post on that?? I think I asked but am not sure #mybrainisfried

did you know that Wendy's has $0.50 frostys right now? well, now you do. get one. (or like 55029508629886 like i have)

BYE FOR NOW

WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING RIGHT NOW?

  1. YEEP. All the life updates stuff. <33
    You can do the writing. *sends you lots of pizza*
    I'm actually reading a book that I'm critiquing. I haven't had a ton of time for anything, so that's basically the only thing that I specifically make sure I make time for. So critiquing novels it is. XD But they're good, so that's a plus. :P

    1. haha! It feels like all I've been doing is posting life updates -- but then again, that's what I have to talk about XD

  2. Idk why, but I loved this post!! XD
    You bought a fidget spinner!!?? *Laughs* I have one, but didn't buy it. One of my many cousins in NH bought it for me. He bought LaKaysha one too. (and mine is cuter than hers matter what she might say ;P) My FIRST cousin told the OTHER cousin to get them, and he'd pay him back ('cause he thought we'd need them for our ten hours flight home. And he was right ;P) but now the cousin that picked them up won't let my first cousin pay him back. So, it's from my first-cousin-once-removed ;P which makes me very happy. *hugs my fidget spinner close* *laughs*
    Also, that is super awesome that your grandparents are going to visit you!!!! THAT'S SO EXCITING!! like, I'm happy for you, girl XD

    1. *grins* but wait. even tho it took me 6 minutes to throw together?! :P
      right!! I saw all about that on your blog! Tyrel said he would buy them right? Or something like that -- and idk why but those things are actually rather neat? *feels so weird*
      awww!! Thanks Daminika! They arrived today and its like EEEPPP

    2. What!? How could you throw a post together that fast!?
      Oh you seen my blog posts then!*giggles 'cause you know his name* Yeah, it was Tyrel who said he'd buy them, but Ryan won't let him pay him back. *laughs* LaKaysha and I have this thing where we say, "your fidget spinner may be cool, but it isn't from Ryan" *laughs* idk why either! I just fell in love with Tyrel's and wanted one so bad! I could stare at it spin for hours. It's so strange!
      That's soooo cooooolllll!!!!! *squeals for you*

  3. I don't think we have anything TOO exciting going on this weekend, so I'll probably just try to get lots of reading done. I'm currently reading "The Great Divide" by Davis Bunn. I'm REALLY enjoying it so far!!! Davis Bunn is AWESOME!!! :D
    That's so cool that you applied for a job at your library! I think sometime really soon I'm going to try to get a job at my library! :)

  6. What am I doing this weekend? UM, probably doing more stuff on our house and packing. ;P All that great stuff.
    I'm reading Exiles by Jaye L. Knight right now. :) And I'll probably start beta reading a book for someone as well, soon.
    Oh, I understand how you feel about seeing your house projects come together! Our house remodeling is nearing completion (I think), and it's so beautiful! *grins* It's so new and bright-looking, and I love it. :D
