Friday Musings #6

Happy Friday and happy Valentine's Day!

I had this whole Valentine's post planned for Wednesday and then... the week got away from me and I ended up not finishing it. :( I was pretty excited about it though, so I think I'll finish writing it over the weekend and post it next week.

This week has been a bit of a rough one. My anxiety's felt a little out of control lately and this week has just felt like one thing after another. It's been tough, but I am glad I still had the energy to get my classwork done for the week. I even got some editing done on Cursed and Golden Touch too.

I started Chosen by Kirsten White this week! I'm only on like chapter two, but I'm loving it so far! I love the protagonist, Nina. Most other slayers are tough and strong, independent female protagonists. And if they aren't before they become a slayer, they become one pretty quickly. They give into their slayer instincts. I love that Nina started out a healer, a girl who doesn't mind being the backup, the person in the background. I love even more that she decides to fight her slayer instincts and stay her compassionate, kind and healing self. It's interesting to watch her inner struggle between who she wants to be and who her slayer instincts want her to be.

This week I also got a par of new boots! That was probably the highlight of my week so far haha! I found these super cute boots on sale at Shoe Carnival. They are my new favorite shoes that I own haha!

It got super cold where I'm at. Wednesday night it snowed and snowed and snowed! It wasn't great snow though... it's kind of wet and a little slushy. Or at least it was. Last night the temperature dropped to like 1 degrees so everything outside froze. The high of today is supposed to be like 5 degrees.

Also! For Valentine's week, Wayward is on sale! You can get it today for 1.99!

I finished my first prayer journal of 2020 this week too! That one lasted from December 26, 2019 till this week, which is pretty quick. I've been using it a lot lately though, so it filled up pretty quickly.

Yesterday I went to the dentist and that was no fun. Turns out I've got a lot going on with my teeth haha

And today is Valentine's Day! I'm babysitting again today so I'm going to bring over some fun craft stuff and we're going to make Valentine cards so that'l be fun!

Tomorrow is one of my little brothers' birthdays. He's turning thirteen! 😱 I can't believe it! They grow up so fast haha

Oh! And how could I forget? To All the Boys I loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You (dang that's a long title haha) came out on Wednesday!! 😍 No spoilers, but it was fantastic. Literally the first movie and now this one too are some of the best teen romance movies I've ever seen. It lived up to every expectation and did the first one justice in every way. If you're looking for an adorable, romantic and sweet movie to watch for your Valentine's Day, I highly recommend To All the Boys and To All the Boys #2!

So, yeah... that was more or less my week. There's been lots of downs and not a lot of ups this week, but I'm feeling pretty good today and I'm just trying to keep a positive attitude about next week.

I hope you have a great Valentine's Day! (Also, if you're looking for some encouraging words on this Valentine's Day Hannah Brencher wrote some beautiful words this week. I love everything she writes and this post was so good and so unique from all the other posts for single people that inevitably comes out on the week of Valentine's.)

How has your week been? Are you doing anything for Valentine's Day today? 


  1. Ooh, I love boots as well! I've got a couple of pairs that I just adore, and it's always so exciting when it's cold enough to wear them, lol

    I've seen Chosen around, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I have read some others by Kiersten White though, and all of them were great, so I'm sure I'll read that one eventually.


    1. Boots are the best!

      I love all of Kiersten White's books. I haven't read them all yet, but I started reading her new Slayer series because I'm a fan of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer show. :)

  2. Happy Belated Valentine's Day! Awesome for new boots! I love boots!

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…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

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 …
