Ok, I’m just going to state the obvious here. I haven’t quite been in the blogging mood for the last few months. All of you, my lovely and faithful readers who I’ve cruelly abandoned, have probably noticed. In case you were wondering, yes I am still alive (no, this is not coming to you from a zombie, vampire, or other creepyness), and yes I still appreciate all of you!
I’ve been super busy…and then when I haven’t been busy, I haven’t exactly felt inspired to write (well, blog posts, that is). A lot has happened these past few months (things which, formerly I would’ve written individual blog posts on), but I won’t give you a boring review here.
Ok, maybe I will do a tiny review. First off…. *drumroll please* I finished my book! That was as of April 1st. So yeah, it’s been over a month and I haven’t shared it with you! Shame on me, I know. It’s not ready for the publisher yet, what I meant by “finished” was that I finished all my long and tedious editing strictly on my own, and sent it off to a wonderful proofreader. I should have her full comments and insight back any day now, and then I can finish editing. Then it’ll be off to the publisher. Who’s excited???
Secondly, after saving up 6 months, I bought myself a black, 32 GB iPod Touch. Yeah, it’s pretty much the most amazing electronic I own. I’m really enjoying it so far! I just need to buy a case, and a screen protector and I’m good to go. Oh and new headphones. My old ones went out, so currently I’m borrowing my mom’s. I want these. Can I just say Skullcandy is the best??? A little on the pricey side, but they are the absolute best quality earphones. Oh and I also need a new iPod dock….. But that’s not an immediate need, so I can do without for a little bit. Case and screen protector first.
Moving on! How To Train Your Dragon. I don’t think I even need to comment on this. But I will, since you guys have missed my ramblings *so* much. 😉 This movie is incredible. I saw it last summer and was like, “eh, it’s ok.” Then I recently bought it, and when we watched it, I was like, “Whoa! This is awesome!!” I love Hiccup. Probably because he’s sarcastic and clumsy and down to earth like……yours truly. So, needless to say, I can relate. Oh and the Night Fury is epic. Also, I love the movie because Gerard Butler voices Hiccup’s father. And we all know who Gerard Butler is……. The Phantom of the Opera. You probably knew that was coming, though.
One last thing: my literature class is ending in two weeks. I am extremely sad, and I think I’m the only one in the class who is sad. What can I say? I love writing, I love literature, and I’ve loved this class. I’ve been doing it nearly every week for 8 months, and I’m sad to see it come to an end. It’s been very fun acquainting myself with my classmates, and learning sides of them that I never knew they had. I guess all good things on Earth must come to an end… I’m just not ready for it yet. 😥
You may have noticed that I wrote “all good things on Earth.” The reason for this being that, God is good. His glorious love never comes to an end. He’ll never stop forgiving us. It may seem like at times that He’s forgotten us or His comfort isn’t there, but at those times, we need to evaluate our relationship with Him, and see whether or not we’re the ones who’s truly forgotten Him. The goodness of Heaven will never come to an end, and our loving Savior will never leave us. Hebrews 13:5, “…I will never leave you or forsake you.”
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post! That’s basically what’s been going on in my life…. Except that I’m going to be starting up piano lessons again sometime in the near future. I’m both excited and slightly nervous about that, taking into consideration that I haven’t had a piano lesson since summer of 2010 – before everything with my shoulder went downhill. However, I believe I’m ready to start up again, and it’ll be so fun to master songs and feel confident to play them!
I’ll try not to be gone too long this time, dear readers. Also, I’d really appreciate hearing your comments! It will probably motivate me to come back sooner…. 😀
