I think I subconsciously turned off my alarm bc IT WAS SET and I woke up late to find it wasn't?????
i wore a hat all day just to see what it is like

had a sleepover and did this charcoals seaweed face mask..Uhm. Yeah. That was fun

basically chickened out at a free yoga in the park at my library. Legit chickened out

so the pool turned green on me again

brought cherry tomatoes to the library cuz PLZ TAKE THEM
am facetiming with my bestie like every single day before she leaves for college

I beat my grandpa at chess WHAAAOOO

I made a funnel with a styrofoam cup so that I could pour half a liter of soda into another liter of soda. WHY EVEN TRY TO COMPREHEND ME

this is me.
so much road trip driving!! Man - 4 hours of sitting and driving = being sore lol

actually let Audrey, Jane, Clara, Jon, Savannah and Sarah alpha read my book gahhhh ALSO YES I GOT IT PRINTED AND IT CAME AND ITS SO PRETTY

i broke my home button on my phone and somehow locked myself out of my laptop all in two days. Electronics hate me.

"Yup. And in 9 years she'll get a letter from the queen!" - sister



*little bro at park* "this place isn't as fun as i imagined."

*me in kitchen before going to work*
*little sis enters* "those socks are beautiful."
(They were vibrant green and yellow with purple peace signs on them??)

"You're a good person to lean on Julia." - bro

Sarah to little sis "you've got something sticky in your hair!"
-little sis "oh. It might be sap. Sometimes when I swing on the swing it drops on my nose even!"

bro packing for week vacation - "I have two backpacks. One for clothes and one for necessities."
Sarah - "clothes aren't necessities?"
bro - "uhhh.."


little bro before leaving for vacation "BYE DOOR."

"Can you please get Cinderella movie?!" - little sis
"Oh fine. I guess I can stand that for a little bit." - little bro in background

Sarah playing Life "aw man. I wanna be a secret agent but being a video game designer pays more."

- little sis "what kind of boat are we going on tomorrow?"
- me "a ferry."
- little sis "a fairy?!?!!"
- me *bursts into laughter*


O H  T H E  L A U G H A B L E S :

*littles playing in the other room*
-little bro "are you satisfied with those places?  Because, no more trading."

okay so I burnt 6 pieces of toast in one morning don't ask

ah my friends

filling up 804 water balloons in a kitchen sink at our library MY POOR ARMS

then being dumped with a bucket of water at the summer reading party and having the best time ever
so I was facetiming with my bestie and I told her when my phone died I would disappear right? It died when I was choking on a muffin.  Don't ask. please.

  9. OUR AUGUST WAS AWESOME GIRL BUT FIRSTLY LET US TALK ABOUT YOUR DELIGHTFUL WRAP-UP POST.
    I love that conversation you had about the eclipse with Grace. xD We also didn't look at it directly (but we did use the pin-hole viewers which pretty much sucked but HUSH) Like Sav said on her blog, we did get to watch it livestream on NASA, which was pretty awesome.
    AND YAS I HEARD YOU TURNED ADULT ON US happpppyyyy (belated) birthday you wonderful human bean!!!! Even though I don't know you too well, I can tell that from your buddies comments that you are totally rad and caring and wise and godly--and from what I've read of your blog, I can tell you're a pretty cool person. ;) Hope you had a wonderful birthday!
    Ok, two ginormous things that happened in August...well, in case Savannah didn't tell you, I GOT ANOTHER BROTHER. And the eclipse happened. Not that we got to see it. But it was still cool. ;)
    Great post, Ju! Hope to see more amazing posts from you soon. <333

  17. I did not see the eclipse because #westcoast. I think the lighting changed for a little bit but I didn't have glasses and was too freaked out to look outside xD

    Big Thing #1: I started a new WIP (the photos should be fixed on my blog post now, too *glares at blogger*)

    Big Thing #2: I nearly cried half a dozen times while reading your book. legit no other novel has ever done that to me.

    And it's great to be back in blogsphere! aaahhhh I missed your wrap-up posts so much <33
