March 2020. *sighs*

Hey hey. How are u guys? I’m good πŸ™‚ Well, relatively good. I’m not bad but I’m kind of done with this whole corona-quarantine-social-distancing thing. I get why we’re doing it, I would hate for more people to get corona and all the families with sick people are in my prayers. With that being said though, I believe that the media has over-exaggerated this and I don’t know if it’s as bad as they say. In all honesty, I don’t know. I don’t know how this is gonna end. I don’t know how it started. I don’t know what to think of the ordeal. I don’t know. But the good thing is that God knows. And He is holding us all in his hands. So I’m trusting in Him and hoping and praying and crossing my fingers that this pandemic ends soon. What are your thoughts on the COVID-19 ordeal?

Well anyways, another month passed by, and I’m just standing here. with my mouth wide open. Like “How?!?” March went so slowly yet so quickly! So many changes. So many new things!

  • I started my 3-month journey of being gluten free. As I explained in my last monthly update, (read it here) I have to go gluten free for three months. I started in march and so far, it’s not horrible. If you know me, ya know that I LOVE gluten. bread is one of the best inventions ever in my opinion. I love the stuff. But I found a decent brand of gluten free bread, and I’ve got good gf flour and Chick-fil-a has gluten free buns so we’re good πŸ˜‰ The main time when I’m remorseful about being gluten free is when everyone else is eating gluten and I can’t. And then it gets depressing. But luckily it doesn’t happen all the time. So yeah, That’s the update. I’ve made some good gluten free cookies so maybe I’ll have to do a recipe post soon πŸ™‚
yummy chick-fil-a πŸ™‚
  • We went to our first (and maybe last) garage/yard sale of the season. I’m big on thrifting so goodwill and garage sales are amazing. I love the deals you can find and it makes you feel so (ummmm idk the word) good? It makes me happy. The garage sale we went to was really good and I found some stuff I love!
garage sales are the BEST
  • I went to my friends for a weekend sleepover and it was SO FUN. We watched Jumanji 1+2, ate ice cream, stayed up late, talked for hours, ate food, went shopping, drank coffee, and tried on crazy and cute clothes. It was an amazing weekend and I’m so happy to have met these new friends πŸ™‚ Smiles at u guys if ur reading this :)))
we got coffee, and yes, it was amazing.
  • My protocol event for school happened. It was fun! We had a jewel heist dinner thing and it was a lot of fun. All of us girls got together and got ready and then we went and took picture (which sadly I cant share bc FACES and PRIVACY) and then we went to the dinner. It was super fun and I cant wait to do it again next year if we do CC!
My hair for the protocol event, I loved it!
  • Basically everything in my life was canceled and we are on quarantine. The thing I was most disappointed about it being canceled was my softball season. As of right now, it’s not canceled but they’re doing a evaluation on the 6th and we’re social distancing until the 30th at least so there’s like a .1 % chance of us actually getting to play the season :(( Another thing that I was disappointed about the cancelation was our co-op. We’re doing zoom meetings online but its a lot less fun and doesn’t really motivate me as much as in-person classes. But my next debate is next week so please pray for me πŸ™‚ It’s against the electoral college and I am STRESSED.
Our weather was lovely for a while there and our plum tree had blossoms on it. I love the contrast in this photo!
  • My sister and I had a painting day, and we made a bunch of little inspirational watercolor card things to stick in letters and such. I loved how they turned out! We painted for about 3-4 hours and I ended up with about 40 cards (not counting my sisters) I think they’re quite adorable though, and I’ve now hung them on my wall πŸ™‚
Which one is your favorite?
  • drank coffee, read books, and made collages. With quarantine and everything, I’ve had some spare time on my hands so I’ve been reading, drinking coffee, and making collages. Highly recommend all three of the above activities.
all my books ❀
One of my latest collages πŸ™‚ I’m quite happy with how it turned out!
I tried whipped coffee. It wasn’t as good as i hoped but I want to try making it again with some changes.
  • And to finish off this post, a meme and a quote:
This kills me. I love it πŸ˜‚
good stuff, am I right?

And thats all for this post! Sorry it was kind of short, March was a pretty messed up month for me, but wasn’t it for us all? Hope you enjoyed and happy April! 2020 is officially 1/4 of the way done-thats terrifying and exciting? How was your march? How are u doing with COVID-19? I hope your all well, stay safe ❀️

Xx, Jasmin

  1. the covid-19 ordeal is really unfortunate. i guess i was naive in thinking how bad the situation really was, but now that it’s reached my country, i’ve realized how bad it can get, for everyone, not even the only affected. i’m looking forward for things to pass quickly and smoothly.
    i’m glad that at least chick-fil-a and gluten free cookies can you keep you company during these three months! it sucks a lot having to not eat when everyone else is. i’ve been doing intermittent fasting for the past few months and it’s always a struggle not to eat, even if everyone else around me is.
    wowww, that braid looks so beautiful! my goal during this quarantine is to learn how to braid my own hair. i’ve never learned it, and my hair is so frizzy and difficult to braid, but i’m trying, lol.
    the cards are adorable. the β€œchoose joy” one is my favorite!
    hope you’re having a great april so far! ❣️

    1. It is! I’m hoping everything calms down soon… are you from the US? I think the numbers in the US are going down so that’s wonderful!
      Yessss me too! Ahhh thats cool, it sounds hard! I’ve thought about doing fasting but haven’t really researched it enough!
      Thank youuuuu, my sister is amazing at hair! I can’t braid my own hair ahaha, I should learn too! My hair is also really frizzy :/
      Awww I’m glad you like it!
      Thank you, I hope yours is going amazing also! ❀️

  5. I’m sorry about your softball season! It stinks that so many sports are getting canceled, especially when you really love playing. 😦
    I absolutely love the paintings you did! They’re so gorgeous! That’s a really fun idea.
    And yes, going to garage sales and thrifting is so much fun. I love when you find good deals. I needed some exercise leggings for basketball a couple months ago, and I found two pairs for $4 each when they usually average new around $20-$30 a pair. πŸ˜ƒ
    Great post!

  6. I love all the things you made! They’re so pretty!
    That’s a lot of books! I’ve been spending my free time reading lately.

    Have you heard of the Twisted Tales series? The Frozen eBook is free until Saturday, so I’ve just been telling everyone.

  7. I love the inspirational watercolor cards you and your sister made, what a neat idea!! My favorite one is the one with the Bible quote “Be a light for all to see”.
    Good luck being gluten-free because I don’t think I could ever do it. I gave up dairy for lent and every day’s been a challenge!

      1. Haha, diary is kinda in everything but so is glutenπŸ˜‚Thank you and there’s other aspects to lent than just giving up food. One of the reasons I liked your paintings so much is because they seem like such a great Lenten activity:)

  8. Those watercolor cards are incredible!! ✨ And your collage is so beautiful 🌻 You’re right, March went by slowly but now that its over it feels like it zoomed by πŸ˜‚ For all of the plans that were cancelled in March I have made a pact with myself to make some indoors/garden type plans to make up for it that I am going to do in April, I’m not entirely sure what yet though πŸ˜‚. Hope you have a great month! Take care lovely πŸ’•πŸ’•

      Haha yesssss! Ahh good idea! I finish school on May 10th and I’m hoping by then the virus is gone but if not I’m going to have a ton of free time to relax and have fun! Back at you! Stay safe and have an amazing April! ❀️❀️❀️
