sparklers + cake + Julia's grad pics || basically my crazy life in a post

Sunday, June 11, 2017

so basically july nano is coming sooner than I had thought AND OMW I AM SO NOT PREPARED *flails and tries not to freak out* I have the bestest cabin tho, and I can't wait for it to begin (I just need to get into full force preparation which is hard when you are working, painting your whole floor level, doing summer reading, eating way too much ice cream for my own good, and then strawberry picking is coming soon, spontaneously going to get new couches an hour away, running 17082347082 errands, making food + shopping, watching emperors new groove again while painting -
basically I'm laughing bc WHO EVER SAID SUMMER HAD FREE TIME?? - I actually feel like it's more busy - even tho I don't have school going. #crazy

so this year my library created an online website to record your time read IT'S SO COOL GUYS - you can like see who is the top reader in the whole system *smirks* I'm ready for this people (but I need more time in the day, instead of staying up to 2 am reading xP XD)

we finally got around to taking Julia's grad pics. these actually aren't the pics she used, but I wanted to add a couple here. I think she'll be posting her pics soon tho?? I love how they turned out so much XD

basically, life is crazy busy and I can't even stuff a fraction of what I've been up to (*cough* more like I CAN'T REMEMBER IT ALL whoops). basically it's insane but I love looking outside and sighing happily bc summer is legit here. IT'S SO LOVELY. also monday is getting into the 90's LIKE OMW GUYS HOT (and legit i'll be working in a garden probably melting) okay maybe I'm exaggerating
p.s. i was curious if you guys had any suggestions as to fav writing/plotting music?? i'd love to see what you guys like! (I often listen to the jane eyre soundtrack, piano guys, and also a soundtrack that adam young does (I think it's called Shackleton or something??) and nope, I can't listen to stuff with lyrics bc lol #distracting) thanks beforehand you guys!

what's a childhood movie you really want to watch again??
have any music suggestions for writing for me?

  1. My favorite writing music is probably Lindsay Stirling, she's really good.

  2. Ju's photos turned out lovely! Wonderful job, Sarah! <3
    Ohhhh a song you should really listen to is Two Steps From Hell from Heart of Courage. I KNOW IT SOUNDS KINDA WIERD, but ITS NOT I PROMISE. The movie its from is about vikings or something, and they go to war, and this is the song that plays when they are all fighting and being brave and all that stuff. IT IS LEGIT THE BEST SONG FOR WRITING, cause it inspires so much awesomeness. Just go listen to it and you'll see what I mean. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRLdhFVzqt4

  5. Soundtracks! Like Skyrim and Mass Effect and Hunger Games are AWESOME. Besides that, I like classical music. Nothing too cheery, but just something to keep me thinking. Though, strangely, when I outline I never listen to music?? I'm not sure why, but I usually only listen to that stuff when I write XP

    btw, THOSE PICS ARE GORGEOUS. <3

  6. Audiomachine is pretty amazing. And I think I saw someone recommend Two Steps From Hell. I second that recommendation. (The artist title sounds horrible, but their music is amazing.)
    Sounds like your life has been about as crazy as mine! ;) Nice to know I'm not the only one, lol. XD Congrats to Ju! My younger brother graduated last week, so I understand some of the crazy stuff y'all are going through. :)

  9. What lovely photos!! Sparklers was a great idea. It looks like your family is celebrating the fourth already with the cake & the sparklers and everything. ;)
    Well, I don't know if it'll be any good for plotting, but it makes my heart soar, so: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hur5jYWD9B4
    ALSO, the band Cuig: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMUod35g0MM
    And if none of those strike a chord: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWr0hSKLcXY&list=PLD070ACEB6AD03959 (especially track 15!!)
