Projects and Such

Hey guys!

I would like to make a post to explain why I haven't been posting much lately.

Firstly, my book. So many things to do before the deadlines!! Pictures to take, information to fill out, kinks to work through. Publishing a book is a lot of work. I have way too many things to do and way too little time. :P

Secondly, a new project . . . I have been thinking about doing a new blog for a long, long time, and I've finally decided to just go for it. I am super excited about this new journey, and I can't wait for you guys to see it! But first I have pictures to take, a design to do, and a bunch of other stuff. You guys will definitely get the link to my new blog when I'm done, though. ;) (And no, I'm NOT quitting this one!! My new blog will be a niche blog, this one will be the same, insanely-random, jumbled mess it always had been. XD)

Camp NaNoWriMo . . . oh dear. It will be the entire month of April. I want to get a ton of writing done! I am incredibly excited about the new book idea I have planned. I have more than half of it planned out, and it will probably be finished tomorrow. :P

Speaking of April - my birthday! My birthday is April 21st - I'll be turning 13! *queue crazy wild screaming*
*calms down* ANYWAY. Of course for my birthday I have to plan my party, and my family celebration, etc.

I am just sooo busy right now. I'm taking up so many different things at so many different times!! Posting on here might slow down a little - I will still be posting and commenting on blogs, though, don't worry. :) Maybe just not as often as I usually do.

Thanks for reading!

P.S. - I finished Star Trek: Voyager recently. I LOVED ALL THE CHARACTERS IT MAKES ME SO SAD NO MORE OF THEM WHY. :( :( :(

*ahem* Okay, now I'm done. Bye!

To Be Read - March 2017

Hello everyone!

Sorry this post is so late! :P I'm going to make this my TBR list for both March and April because I didn't do it at the beginning of the month . . . I may or may not have forgotten to do it, haha. Here my list of books I read - or didn't read - from my last TBR post.

Emily Climbs
The Mother-Daughter Book Club
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest
A Dream Not Imagined
The Only Pirate at the Party
The Hidden Amethyst
Courageous Love

So as well as the ones I didn't get a chance to read this month, I also have these books on my list . . .

Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster
I've heard great things about this classic book. It sounds interesting and incredibly sweet, so this is one of the ones I hope to read in the rest of March and April!

Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis
Yay! Another book by C.S. Lewis. It's science fiction, too, which makes it even more interesting. I'm also pretty sure my dad has this book, so I won't have to spend money on it either. :P

The Secret Keepers by Trenton Lee Stewart
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Trenton Lee Stewart's writing style - so I am SOOOO excited to read this! (And my library has it, so that's also a plus.)

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Okay, so the thing is, I actually started this book. I really tried to get into it, I did. But I just didn't work out. There were also so many other books I wanted to read first. But I WILL READ THIS BOOK THIS MONTH. I am determined to do it even if I have to force myself. :P

And there we go! That wraps up my list for this month and the next. Have you guys read any of these books? :)

Thanks for reading!

Office Tour - March 2017

Hello everyone!

Last March I did an office tour, (I don't actually remember that, I was just looking through old posts, hehe) and since it's March again, I decided to do an updated one! My space has changed a lot (it's also gone through two new computers, a chair and new furniture since last year) so I thought it would be fun to do.

Just a note, I don't actually have a real "office", per-say. It's just a little space in our dining room where both me and Jo do our school, blogging, gaming, etc and I call it my office. ;)

Let's get into it!

Firstly, we have a cart next to my desk that holds all my schoolbooks. I am homeschooled and use a curriculum that teaches you online and then gives you assignments afterwards, so I keep my school-related stuff here.

On top, there are some books I'll be reading for school later in the year (if you know what the printing company JourneyForth is run by, you probably know what curriculum I use...) a spelling bonus word sheet at the bottom, tape, a post-it note holder, my calligraphy pen, and a to-do list thing that I actually use a lot (I got it at Walmart.)

And here are all the bins where I keep my school books.

Here's my computer, and the lovely desktop background. I like having monthly ones, either from Google Images or KBR, which have lovely monthly desktop backgrounds with Bible verses on them. :D

There's my keyboard, mouse and lovely and aesthetically pleasing mousepad. XD

At the left side of my computer there's a pencil holder (if you've seen my other office tour, yes, the Enterprise figure is still there. It doesn't light up anymore though :( ), a stationary set my mom gave me, and a Rilakkuma notepad set.

On the sliding, pull-out tray I use to store some other stuff, we've got my planner. Obviously I can't show you the inside but it's SO. PRETTY. As you can probably guess from the front, it has writing and reading quotes on almost every page! It's my favorite planner ever. ;)

Then we've got one of my Bibles, which I keep in my desk because I'm always needing to look of Bible verses in school, and a notecard thing from Studio C.

Here's a picture of Jo's desk, which is literally right next to mine.

And here's the view from our big windows we have right in front of us. :P

And there you go! My "office" tour. I hope you guys enjoyed! :)

Thanks for reading!
