Ushering in the New Year

I haven't been writing on here for a while. Life got in the way and I got completely distracted and I also had a bit of writers block when it came to the blog. 

But with the new year comes new resolutions and new inspiration. Starting with the blog. I've changed it all up and given it a different name and everything. 

Why the new name? I've wanted to change it for a while and I thought it was about time to flip everything around. And also from here on out the blog will be about more than just writing. I want to cover TV shows, movies, and life while also sharing my passion for reading and writing. 

I also have a brand new planner from Christmas that I am dying to use from my book writing to college work to blog posts. I'm super excited for the new year and can't wait to get going on the blog. 
I've decided to post every Wednesday so I hope you'll come back for more. 

For now though I want to kick off the new blog with a post about my new resolutions list style: 

1. I've done a lot of research over 2015 and really prayed about publishing a book and I think 2016 is the year for that. My first new year resolution is to self-publish my WIP Weapon Icean and I'm hoping to get it out there around Febuary-ish. :) 

2. Spend more time praying. My prayer journal has been on and off but I wan to change that. This year I want to start a schedule of getting some more alone time with God and just pray and talk to Him.

3. Read all the books on my TBR list... Could be a challenge but I think I can do it. :);) 

4. See Gambit (an up coming X-Men movie about well... Gambit haha) in theaters which would be HUGE for me since I am a giant fan of all things X-Men and it would be my first X-Men movie that I see in theaters. 

5. And last but certainly not least spend more time outside and not in my bedroom twenty-four seven. That includes hanging out with my friends and family more.
Anyways, I can't wait for the New Year which is just two days away! I'm ready for 2016! Though I am a little reluctant to turn 18. That seems sort of surreal. :o 

What are some of your new year resolutions? And your favorite memory of 2015??

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

Build Your Ark

Happy Wednesday! 
Did you know that Noah was a conspiracy theorist of his time? People thought he was crazy for building an Ark when there was no storm or rain or even a hint of a flood in sight! He suffered name calling, ridicule, shame and hatred because he was speaking out and following his Lord’s commands. I was reading through Hebrews the other day and under the section about faith Noah was there. In Hebrews there's an entire chapter - chapter 11 - called Faith in Action and the author lists one Old Testament character after another and their faith in God and what they did to put that faith into action. Near the top of that list is Noah. It says, "By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith." His faith in God was so great that he built an ark when God told him to as the rest of the world peered up at the sky, s…

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
