January 2020. *claps excitedly*

Hey guys! How have u been? I can NOT believe January (aka the first month of 2020) is almost over?! Like how?! It seems like it flew by but also like time passed sooooooo slowly xD. 2020 is now 1/12 of the way over *wipes away tears* Just kidding, but it’s sad how quickly the years go by as you get older and I’m not even THAT old yet πŸ˜€ January was a good month for me, getting back in the groove of school ( ughhhh, more on that later), Trying to keep up in my goals and resolutions and just living life has kept me busy!

Things that happened in January:

βˆ™Went to a Hotel with some good friends for their birthdays and it was a BLAST. I had so so much fun ahhhhh it was amazing :))

βˆ™Drank lots of tea, like I mean LOTS. My mom got me 60 packs of pomegranate pizzaz tea for Christmas and so far I’ve only made a small dent in the pile of tea bags but I’ve drank a good 20 cups xD

βˆ™ Found out what my Mom is having! Little backstory, we found out my Mom was pregnant in November and she’s due at the end of May! This is the last kid she wants to have (6 is a lot xD) and it’ll make us a family of 8, including our parents and the new baby!! So any who, we found out what she’s having!! Can u guess? Ok, enough suspense… My mom is having a:

.

BOY!!!!!!!!! Yay! I’m excited but I didn’t realize how much I wanted a girl until she told us πŸ˜‚ Don’t get me wrong, I’m still super excited but baby girls wear dresses and bows in their hair annnddddd their just sooo cute but I’M EXCITED! My little sister REALLY wanted a girl and when she found out it was a boy she cried for a good 10 minutes πŸ˜‚ Now she’s warmed up to the idea and she can’t wait to hold her baby brother!

βˆ™ We got our first real snow of the winter and the first snow of the year! We ended up getting about 3 inches over about 4 days, but we were excited and extremely thankful for the snow we got bc none of our friends in town got much snow 😦 We went sledding and snowmobiling (until the snow mobile broke:(() and enjoyed the cold weather. Now we’re back to 47 degrees with rain and cloudy skies 😦

βˆ™ Found a lot of good memes xD. I’m in a group chat with like 15 ppl from my co-op and basically all we do it send memes πŸ˜‚ So every once in a while I have to go on Pinterest and stock up haha, its fun tho xD

βˆ™Started school again. I’m now in second semester and the work load is pretty light as I’m just starting a couple new subjects! My two new subjects are economy and Drama, and I’m enjoying both of them so far! For Drama we’re reading The Taming of The Shrew which is by Shakespeare. At first I wasn’t really excited but I’m so far really enjoying it, My teacher is reading us the play and its in English and not all Shakespeare-y and then later in the year we’re gonna tackle the actual play, wish me luck lol πŸ˜‚ For economics, we’re playing a game in market watch and investing in stock with fake money ( it’s a simulation) but yeah, I’m in first place out of my class so that’s exciting! Later this semester we’re doing an experiment where we find jobs we might like to do and places we would like to rent and basically we calculate how much it would cost for us to live when we’re 23 years old! I’m excited for that project, it sounds fun!

βˆ™ Had a mental break down in the mall. Whew that was fun. But life ain’t all sunshine’s and rainbows kids xD I’ll spare u the deets but basically I’m self conscious about how I look and it’s hard shopping in stores where everything/a lot of things are made to fit a certain body type and that’s not ur body type. Love urself guys, it’s important.

βˆ™ I signed up for a softball team! Now just crossing my fingers there’s enough girls to make a team for my age bracket. One of the perks of playing on this team is my sister gets to play with me and so do two of my awesome friends so we’re all super excited!

βˆ™ got in a fight with a friend, didn’t talk for a while and then I called and apologized. I feel like I put 80% of the effort in that friendship tho so it’s tough. I don’t want to be petty but friendship is a two way road. I still love u if ur reading this πŸ˜‚β€οΈ

βˆ™ ate a TON of good food. Food is actually life. Like without it we would die. And it’s a huge plus when that food is delicious.

βˆ™ Did quite a bit of baking. I made mini chocolate chip scones, egg muffins and fried cheese sticks. Yum :)) Would u guys like to see a recipe post? I need to get into baking more, it’s so cool to be able to make something that makes ppl happy πŸ˜‚πŸ‘Œ

βˆ™ read quite a few books, my goal for the year is 50 and I’m already 1/5 of the way there but it’s fineeee. I’ve been enjoying my books πŸ™‚

βˆ™ blogged pretty consistently. I mean, I kinda slacked in the middle of January but I think I got my five posts up! So pat myself on the back for not failing. Woo. That was unenthusiastic 😦 WOO WOO!!!!! That’s better πŸ˜€

Ok that’s the basics of what I did in January. Now enjoy some pictures with maybe a little context πŸ˜€

For New Years eve, My mom and aunt made this ^^ It’s called danish puff and its like this insanely flaky pastry type thing and you put coffee flavored frosting and its pretty good πŸ™‚ Usually we make donuts on New Years Eve but since my Mom’s pregnant, she didn’t feel like standing up for 4 hours and frying them all πŸ˜‚
The view from the hotel we stayed at with our friends! It was so pretty and peaceful πŸ™‚
Another picture of the view + Sydney’s hand. We took a ton of pictures in those two days lol :))
Subway = YUMMMMMM. I feel like subway is underrated bc its just a basic sandwich shop but basic sandwiches are actually bomb. Idc what u say, subway is good and my food was delicious.
Our cute wittlle feet awwwww πŸ˜‚ yes I’m weird but its fine xD Does anyone else take pictures of their feet?I do it all the time, but I also take pictures of everythingggggg.
Ahhhhh I love this picture! The colors compliment each other and it just looks really nice idk? This food was really good! It was at the Hotel and you got little vouchers for a free breakfast so you went to a restaurant and ordered ur breakfast instead of a all u can eat buffet thing. I kinda prefer the all u can eat thing bc duhhh u can eat all you want and not be limited to one thing but this was a fun experience!
The hotel we went to had a heated outdoor pool and it was AMAZING. It looked super cool in pictures too bc all the steam was rising off of it!
We got some super cool pictures in the pool with the steam and morning sun. I LOVE this picture.
As I said, I drank a LOT of tea. I had quite the amount of mugs in my room, our mug cupboard downstairs was empty πŸ˜‚
*MASSIVE HEART EYES* Snowwwww its so pretty ahhhh
seen this at this cute little shop, if I had my own house to decorate, I might have even bought it xD
Spent WAY to much time making my science notes look pretty πŸ˜€ But it was fun!
Went to town with a friend and learned how to pump gas! Its not that hard, except we couldn’t figure out how to pay with the card xD We’re smart in real life usually, I promise πŸ˜‚
Chinese food is SO good. I love orange chicken and sweet and sour pork? Also: crab puffs are AMAZING <33333
Sent a late Bday/Christmas present to my wonderful pen-pal! I think she’ll be getting a blog soon so keep ur eyes out for that!
In return, she sent me a package too!!! I absolutely LOVED everything she got me, the Oreos were great, I’m super excited to watch Wonder again, and I love the beanie, the pom pom thing is so cute!
this is actually me ^^^^ I’m so socially awkward πŸ˜‚
haha, my gramma did this with me a couple times, back in the day when I still could pass for a kid πŸ˜‚
Ahhhh don’t you just love having siblings??? Thank you Aubrey for the toilet paper xD
Made myself am acia bowl for breakfast, It was pretty good :))
Got a new record for likes in a day! Thank you guys so much for joining this journey and following along, I’m so thankful for you all!
haha, this is awesome! But hey, they still got 40 bucks!
Caramel White Mocha frap <33333 It’s so good! It’s sweet but I like sweet πŸ˜€
This cat is weird. she just stares at me.
I lovveeeee this picture! The colors are so niceeeee
some more of our snow. It wasn’t much but it was AWESOME!
Did some journaling πŸ™‚
One last foot picture πŸ˜‚

And that is all for this month in review!

February Bujo Setup *Pats myself on the back bc this is actually on time*

Hey guys! Welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today I’m doing a……. ( drumroll please)…… *drumroll*….. BULLET JOURNAL post!! Yayayayay! These are probably the most popular posts on my blog and they’re also some of my favorite posts to type so yeah, Its cool! Next month for my March bujo setup I’m going to try and do a tutorial type post to show how I set my bujo up?!? Does that sound cool? I think it sounds fun! Ju from over at The Ju Photography actually commented on my last bujo post and asked if I was planning on doing one and I figured it was a good idea!

Anywhoooooooo lets get onto the actual post!

Here is the front cover page, and I’m quite happy with it! It’s simple but cute and I really like simple themes bc then they don’t take foreverrrrrrr to do xD. If u couldn’t already tell, I’m slightly (read highly) lazy and so I like short, easy things πŸ˜‚ I struggled with the banner of hearts at the top bc (ummmmmmm idk why) but it turned out fine πŸ™‚ Also, the calendar is messed up bc I accidentally wrote Saturday and Sunday next to each other at the top and so yeah, its not a huge issue but also not ideal :))

Next is my mood tracker, super basic and normal but very functional and cute so I’m happy with it!

Next is my big February calendar which is ALSO messed up because there’s only 6 days across and not seven so its slightly of kilter but oh welp, it works πŸ™‚ I really like having a bigger calendar so I can write on the dates and then I also have my area for important dates down at the bottom so thats helpful as I can put birthdays, anniversary’s and just regular things that are happening down there πŸ˜€

Next is my playlist and note pages which are both basic and simple but super helpful and nice πŸ™‚ On my notes page I have my favorite things, books I read in February, Goals and my money saved in February. I will pry fill in all of this at the end of February and we’ll hope I save some money and read some books bc that would be GRAND xD. O and my playlist page is very basic, just song title and artist name, I really like playlists bc then I can look back and remember all the good old songs I love!

Last but not least is my self care challenge which is a new addition, I’ve never done one before but I seen it on Pinterest and it looked cool so I figured why not?!?!? I put some self care goals on there and I’m hoping to have crossed off all of them by the end of the month! I really want to go to a bookstore bc I went to one recently but it was in a touristy area and so the books were all TONS of money and ummmm I’m basically broke so I cant afford any xD. But, I want to go to the book shop thats in the closest town bc someone new bought it and I heard she’s super nice πŸ™‚ And since its not a tourist attraction the books will hopefully be more affordable :)) So yeah, maybe if I go I’ll do a book haul or something?

I figured I’d throw this in bc why not? These are the pens and drawing accessories I used while doing my February set up! My two top favorites out of these are definitely the Pilot G-2 07 pens and the Stabilo Boss original pastel Sharpies. These two are my absolute Favs and I use them for EVERY setup and page in my bullet journal, 10/10 would recommend πŸ˜€ Also, white out/correction tape/whatever you want to call it is an actual lifesaver hahaha, I use it for all my mess-ups πŸ™‚

And that is all for this post! Hope u enjoyed!

Do you have a bullet journal? Do you have any special plans for February? Whats ur favorite pen/marker/pencil? Would u like a bujo tutorial? Let me know in the comments :))

The Questions:
1. What is your favorite meal for dinner?Β 

Hmmmmmm, this one is a hard one πŸ˜‚ I like food. Like a LOT. But u need it to live so its good to at least enjoy it πŸ˜‚ I really like having “breakfast for supper” ,………. WAIT A MINUTE. Side note: Do you call it supper or Dinner? Idk why I call it supper but yeah, I do πŸ˜‚ A lot of my friends call it dinner and I like to tease them about it but its funny how some ppl call stuff different names! Anywhoooo, I really like breakfast food so some of my favorites suppers are like French toast and sausage, but I also REALLY like pizza and burgers so I love when we have that! Whats UR favorite thing to eat for supper?

2. What is your favorite kind of fruit juice?

Orange Juice. Hands down. IT IS SO GOOD. I always beg my Mom to buy it for me, and then usually all my siblings get to it before me πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

3. What is your favorite type of music?

Ahhhhh I’m so scrambled up with my genres πŸ˜‚ I like christian, pop and country. Also Christmas music is bomb but only from October-January, otherwise I get sick of it πŸ€ͺ My friend says I like depressing music but I like to listen to sad songs, idk why but they’re nice? Does anyone else do that!??!? ok guess its just me haha πŸ˜‚

4. What is your favorite room in your house? Why?

My bedroom. I get in trouble for being in my room a lot but I like having my own space and peace and quiet. Its nice to just be able to chill and read a book without ppl running around all around you. So yeah, I like the vibes in my room a lot, I have lights strung around my walls and it makes it look super cozy and nice :))

If you could become fluent in one language, what would it be?

Hmmmm, probably something basic like French or Spanish. Or maybe ASL? I took a ASL class for like 2 years but I basically only know the alphabet, numbers up to 20 and a couple random signs πŸ˜‚ Right now I’m learning Latin but it’s sad how you can’t speak Latin necessarily, It’s more for writing books etc.

Three Facts about me:

  • I’ve never watched any Marvel movies but I want to binge watch them all this year πŸ˜‚ I’ve been told how good they are by a lot of ppl and now I’m convinced.
  • I don’t like steak, Ribs or hard tacos. Ik, shocker πŸ˜‚
