[a review - WHAT WAS UP IN NOVEMBER] aka randomness + THIS MONTH WENT BY SO FAST]

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

L I F E   I N   N O V E M B E R :

  • thanksgiving happened +the christmas event + my bday
  • stayed up until 2am a couple nights this month getting stuff done *squints*
  • took a lot of photos [hence the photo dump in my last post - LIKE I HAVE TO USE THEM, GUYS]
  • I ATE, SLEPT, READ AND LIVED SOMEHOW
  • discovered this really neat board game called "ticket to ride" SUCH FUN - but watch a youtube video to learn how to play it. the instructions are nuts
  • remade a pie crust four times BECAUSE SOMETHING WAS WRONG AND THE DOUGH WAS LEGIT MELTING i still think it was our oven
  • did some Christmas shopping:

W R I T I N G   T H E   W O R D S :

I LOVE COUPON CODES SO MUCH THEY ARE MY FRENS (besides you guys, of course *cough*)

BUT OKAY I printed out my unfinished novel to edit because it needs rewriting and I just feel like I need to be able to look at it in legit book form (I get so lost scrolling thru Word tho). and now the wait for the thing in the mail yaaaayyy

U T T E R   R A N D O M N E S S :

julia: *bangs cereal box on my head* oh wow sorry that was a total accident
5 yr old sis: if the sky was green it would match the ground and then we would bump into it all the time because they look the same

"aren't you glad our lips aren't inside out?" - ju
me: *jawdrop*

time change + julia at the dentist = this ^^

"steak is my best friend ever" - six yr old sis

seeing how fast you type is actually really fun. I got my speed up to 103 WPM OMW

me hearing in background:
*slap* HA. I FINALLY killed that fly! - bro
julia: *is struggling to open package of cheese*
me: *watches julia struggle*
julia: *continues*
me: .....
julia: ugh fine *tosses package over* open it

mom: julia you really sound sick!
julia: Im not sick. I have a cold. 
me: ....
so it was snowing and I opened the car door and then all the snow that had been on the door FLEW ONTO MY SEAT and then Julia laughs *squints*

when a friend asks what you are doing for your bday
6 yr old sis: "so you know when I was a little kid - like when I was four"...

very randomly made a chocolate cake with my mom
so I just deleted exactly 500 emails MY OCD IS HAPPY

"you know I eat water?" - sis

julia and I tired from prepping for event =

coming outside after our event to see it's pouring rain and this older lady just goes "ew"

I was hanging out at our booth and this guy comes up to me and goes "I just met your mom!!" and I'm like "My mom?? I didn't think she was here-" and then he goes. "oh. um. wrong booth" and i'm like:
having some young girls from other booths hang out at our booth and teaching them how to knit and crochet <33

so I was looking up backpacks and yep IVE ALWAYS WANTED A LEAF BLOWER, like, ????????????????????
so I was leaving in the morning and said "goodnight" instead of "goodbye"and my dad just laughed (this was the last day of the christmas event jsyk. don't judge)

ALMOST DELETING ALL MY RANDOM MOMENTS thank goodness for recently deleted tho
^^ my little sis tried to guess how to spell my name. maybe this should be my new signature?? XD

julia randomly in conversation: so we are going out for your bday tomorrow because we can't go on thanksgiving 
me: what
me: wait. what?
^^ it was a blast tho XD

I accidentally burnt oven mitts on the stove top. AND I CHECKED TO MAKE SURE IT WAS THE RIGHT BURNER NO JOKE and all I was doing was boiling water

me: *squeezes paint bottle* why isn't this coming out?? -- oh. oooopppss.
me: *plugging in phone to charge*
why isn't it going in?
....
oh
^^ I was trying to put it in the headphone jack. whoops

"are you really turning sixteen or are you just a robot?" - 8 yr old bro

my alarm went off and I legit had to lay there for 30 seconds trying to figure out why in the world I was supposed to be getting up 
I woke up and looked up at the shelf above my bed and um. basically this book is like this 8lb. book on the history of america. I use it as a book end. *cough* 

little sis: *whispers in my ear* my wiggly tooth is even wigglier!

me and julia be like:
F A V   P O S T S :
stress just isn't worth it - by jonathan - an excellent post on how stress just isn't worth it. READ THE THING.

N O V E M B E R   G O A L S   C O M P L E T E D :

  • do a fallish craft and/or bake - berry pies, apple pies, sweet potato pies, pecan tassies, and other thanksgiving stuff - and a chocolate pie THAT WAS SO AMAZING AND SOMEHOW I FORGOT TO TAKE A PHOTO OF IT (and it was a custard filling which was actually really interesting to make)
  • hang out at the library and/or coffee shop and be all writerly 


  • stay warm - except for that one night setting up our event. it was in a barn so basically it was as cold as outside which was like 30 degrees or something. IT GOT VERY COLD AFTER OVER THREE HOURS.
  • start Christmas shopping + prep - FINALLY STARTED ON THIS - I have plan to make plans for Christmas-ey stuff for next month ("plans to make plans" *shakes head at self*)

  • get ready for christmas without stress [LISTEN TO LOTS OF CHRISTMAS MUSIC]
  • get my book from lulu and plan a starting/end date ???? we'll see xD

  3. This was such a fun post! I know right... cannot believe that its December tomorrow! I am definitely looking to Christmas EVERYTHING! I LOVE CHRISTMAS!
    Question: How do you get GIF's to work on your blog post and where do you get them from? I've literally attempted every CSS code for blogger out there and have been unable to get it to work.
    Thanks so much!

    1. eeeepp, thanks, livvy! like dude. IT'S GOING SO FAST. I need to get more in the holiday spirit. I just get so busy that suddenly IT'S HERE. I'm trying not to let myself do that again this year xD

      okay so it's actually more of a complicated thing :P basically, I either get them off my phone and send them through email to upload on my blog OR google a specific movie for GIF's, download them, and upload them. (you upload them as an image, so it's not a code at all. treat it just like an image!) -- that was probably your problem, so I hope this helps!

    1. AH YES IKR?? it's such an amazing feeling, haha. um yes it WAS - until I we made legit three pie crusts and it was /melting/ I honestly don't know what was wrong with it. so weird. and noo, I haven't. we have a good recipe, and even made it at our friends house the day before and it was AMAZING, but completely flopped at home. something with our oven temp being off, I think?? idk. we got it to work tho, haha.

      UM. YES. can you believe I only realized that fact like on november 30th?.........lol
