MAY IN REVIEW || preparing for nano + summer + {hello june}

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

- helped my dad set up our new pool (NOW WILL IT JUST GET WARM ENOUGH?? xP)
(this was during the leveling xD)

- read a toooonnnn (and checked out like 20+ more books. whoops xD)

- FINISHED SCHOOL *cheers and flails and everything*
- mentally brainstormed for the second part of my novel ALL THE THINGS TO HAPPEN xD

- went to a friends graduation party (which was super fun xD)

basically, this month was super busy and I'm having a hard time remembering everything that happened haha. but I seriously got basically all my wall art up so hopefully the room tour will happen sometime this month (lol idk anymore haha). 

- writing basically didn't exist this month BUT THAT ACTUALLY WAS MY PLAN believe it or not. I decided to take a little break and enjoy the summer although next month will be plotting. which I don't mind /too/ much. I'm actually pretty excited about it?? my alpha-er's have been giving me some brilliant ideas for part 2 of my novel. *concocts plot in corner*
- oh, and I sent the first part of my novel off to like 5 alpha readers and omw they have been so helpful in giving me ideas for part two *is excited*

- it was also amazingly creepy when one of my readers described my MC for me as what she saw (I don't often describe my characters lol) and I sent her a pic of my inspiration for my MC and OMW IT WAS EXACTLY AS SHE DESCRIBED *flails*

"can I have a pickle?" *pauses* "whoops i forgot to say please" - little sis 

- when my little sis got a glow in the dark ponytail: *turns lights out* is my hair glowin'?

little sis: *gives me like 30 pennies before i go run errands* can you buy me a new toothbrush?

- when you are brought home a frosty and it's like *dies with happiness*
mom: hey - can you help me with this?
computer: *is set in German*
me mentally: I CANT READ GERMAN
me: *pretends i know what i'm doing*
me: *frantically looks for familiar English* NEVER LOSE ME IN SOME FOREIGN PLACE K

- when you and your dad are both perfectionists and you spend hours leveling the ground for the pool (it actually didn't tilt so it was worth it lol)

- when Julia is on her graduation trip and you tease her about using her fluffy blanket as a table cloth #muahahhaaa

- went to the park and hung out (literally).
sis: spin me again!
me: nooooo. i'm dizzy!
sis: well. when you are UNdizzy can you?

little bro - I'm glad I'm not a superhero! I mean, I'd like the flying part...but I'd miss out on stuff too. and I'd hate the super hearing part!

- when a baby fox crosses the road and it's the AWWWW THE CUTEST THING EVER 

- when you are the only girl out with your dad and bros and you end up being the one who carries your moms mother's day roses through the hardware store for hours so they don't wilt in the car #awkward
- when you've worked on setting up the pool all day and end up with one burnt shoulder, half a burnt neck, burnt ears and burnt elbows. how?... #onlyme

- when time doesn't exist
- five year old sis - *looks at me in wonder* how did you get growed up so quickly?

me: ooohhh thunder
julia: or it's the dryer 

- when you toss your phone on the bed and bounces and flings itself and lands on your hard floor and thankfully somehow managed to stay alive and you are just like:
me: *cuts onions* *actually doesn't tear up* wow am I some superhero or something
me seconds later: *starts blinking uncontrollably and can't see what i'm cutting anymore*
five minute later: *eyes still burn*

- changing your phone password bc it takes so long to do and after you change it you keep putting the old password in so, in reality, it's adding more time 

- jsyk calendar doesn't end - and yes, you can still set events here
"so I was thinking a year was like 10 months...not 12..." - ju
"Sarah look - *shows me a four leaf clover* I never thought I'd find one but I did! And it's real!*pauses* Now what do I do with it?" - little bro

its a journey by audrey - this was a brilliantly written post that I totally needed and you probably do too. reeaddd ittt
biking + it's national chocolate chip day??? + writing woes by hannah - hannah's post just made me so happy like adorable bikes and chocolate cookies? yas plz
forgotten films // animated treasures everyone needs to see by mary - mary brought back childhood for us like omw we had the best kid movies XD
exhale by ava - her photos seriously kill me xD
may highlights 2017 by katie grace - katie's wrap ups just always make me so happy - there are also donuts there so #extrahappiness

- finish my novel? - honestly idk why this was a goal?? anyways, I changed my plan and next month is plotting part two of my novel and then writing it in July xD
