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

2020 Birthday haul *throws confetti on all of us*


Hey hey πŸ™‚ How are you? I’m good πŸ™‚ Just hanging out at home while this corona virus stuff hopefully blows over 🀞🏼🀞🏼🀞🏼 I figured I would take advantage of all the spare time I now have and hopefully I can go a lot of content up! Anyways, let’s get onto the haul!

. . . . . . . . . .

*disclaimer: I am in no way, shape, or form trying to brag about what I got, I personally really enjoy reading these kinds of posts so when my birthday happened in February, I figured I could do a gift haul! I hope you enjoy!

First up: My parents got me Birkenstocks!! Ahhh I love them so much haha! Fun story, I used to think birks were ugly and they looked like grandma shoes but then the “vsco girl trend thing ordeal” happened and even though I’m not a vsco girl, I now like Birkenstocks. So I’ve begged my mom since last summer and I finally convinced her to get them for me for my Birthday! I absolutely love them, but I have had to get a few callouses and I have like a corn thing or something on the side of my foot and it hurts? My mom said I need to take a break from wearing them but we’ll see πŸ˜‰

Yes, I got the basic ones πŸ™„ They’re so cute though!

Next, some takes my bro’s got me. I LOVE takis. They kill me everytime (bc I’m a wimp and can’t handle hot stuff) but I will continue eating them because I want to. and because they’re addicting and delicious. What are ur thoughts on takis? I feel like they’re low-key controversial πŸ˜‚

YUMMMMM.

From my grandparents, I got a brush, some chocolate, paint (not pictured, idk why) and a $25 Visa card (which I’m very excited to use bc I’ve never had one before xD) Luckily, the chocolates were gluten free so I could eat them! I’ve been gluten free for almost a whole month now y’all! But I really enjoyed eating the chocolate, bc duh. It’s chocolate?!?

Cool beans πŸ‘πŸ»

Next, my aunt and uncle gave me a carton of orange juice. because they know I love it. So I drank out of the carton immediately, so that my siblings wouldn’t steal any (they’re scared of my gErMsss) and I thoroughly enjoyed the WHOLE carton! My aunt and uncle also gave me two ten dollar gift-cards to amazon, and I’m super excited about that bc amazon is awesome and you can always find stuff to buy on there πŸ™‚

my love ❀️ Also the ‘Jas’ was me making sure my siblings knew it was mine πŸ˜‰ I’m very protective of my juice.

I also got 15 dollars from some friends so thats cool bc money is cool πŸ™‚

And that’s that! I really loved all the gifts I got! I hope you enjoyed reading, and check back soon for my April bullet journal setup!

Do you like takis? What’s your take on Birkenstocks? Are you a fan of orange juice?

Let me know in the comments, lonnngggggg comments make my days! πŸ’•

xx, Jasmin

P.s. we finally found toilet paper so all is calm in our house. Just kidding, we weren’t that worried about it but it’s kind of nice to know you have toilet paper, right?!
