I'm currently wrapped up in my holiday blanket, listening to Mariah Carey's Christmas album, with my fairy lights on. I'm ready.
YES I KNOW IT IS THE TENTH. YES I KNOW I AM LATE. Leave me alone.
I LOVE DECEMBER. December is the best month of winter. Don't attack me, because I'm right. No one likes January and February, get real.
THIS MONTH'S EVENTS
YESTERDAY I had my very first high school DANCE. SCREAM. WHAT. It was tons of fun and everyone had a great time and WE SCREAMED OUR HEADS OFF to Shakira and the Spice Girls. Because what else would you dance to?
Needless to say, my throat burns.
I also have my orchestra concert on Thursday which is pretty cool and I love our songs because they're not too terribly boring :') We're playing a Karl Jenkins song so. YES.
ALSO HOLIDAYS?? I don't celebrate any holidays that are in December, but I STILL FREAKING LOVE THE HOLIDAYS. I put up a mini tree in my room and everything it's great.
I am SO ready for the break. I need some serious time away from AP Euro. It's killing me, guys. Sadly, we're not going anywhere, but honestly, I don't mind some quality, lazy time at home.
TO BE READ
- THE HATE U GIVE / angie thomas
This will be a reread jUST BECAUSE I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. It is everything I need in a book, honestly, and I love everything that Angie Thomas does.
- DRAW THE LINE / laurent linn
I picked this one up a few months ago because I found it quite intruging, and nothing like I've ever read before. I'm not quite sure how I'll feel about it, but I am willing to give it a shot. RISKS ARE GOOD.
- MANSFIELD PARK / jane austen
Classics are something I've been trying to get into, and I feel like Jane Austen is definitely a perfect place to go. I've read a few of her novels, and my mom told me this one is very well written, so I'm excited to pick it up :D
- A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES / sarah j maas
I KNOW. I KNOW. Everyone and their mother has read this but I never found the heart to read it? I'M SORRY. It's time though, I need to hop on this train, and maybe hop off after I finish this book ahha. Throne of Glass wasn't really my thing, but hopefully this won't be like that??
GOALS THAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE ACCOMPLISHED
- DRAW TWO NEW PIECES EVERY WEEK
Something I've been neglecting lately is my art, which is quite sad considering it brings me so much joy. I just have SO SO much to do, that I don't seem to make time for it. BUT I AM DETERMINED TO DO THIS.
- EAT. BREAKFAST.
I wake up around an hour before my bus comes, and it goes something like this:
6:00 - just 15 more minutes!!
6:15 - noooo
6:17 - ok fine i'm going
6:18 - washing my face is nice i'm gonna do this for 5 minutes straight
6:30 - crap
6:35 - outfit time
6:37 - I'M IN A CRISIS. NOTHING TO WEAR.
6:40 - this is good this is fine
6:45 - brush my hair now and throw on some mascara
6:50 - this outfit is terrible
6:55 - AHHHHHH
7:00 - CRAP
7:05 - ok i made my bus. WAIT I DIDN'T EAT BREAKFAST
I NEED TO EAT BREAKFAST. Solution? PICK MY OUTFIT THE NIGHT BEFORE. PLS.
- DRINK THREE GLASSES OF WATER EVERY DAY
My dad and I found so many health benefits to drinking water? IT'S CRAZY. I'm terrible at it, I probably drink a glass a day because I always forget :')
But I'm really going to try to bump up my water game because it's important. I WILL BE HEALTHY.
The first picture is of a watercolor painting I did of the LEGENDARY Finn Wolfhard for my art class! IT TOOK ME SOOO LONG.
Here are some of my BEST Black Friday purchases including a Funko Pop of LUCAS. SINCLAIR. <3333 and Pokemon Ultra Sun (nerd)
THEN a gorg picture of Washington Monument from our DC trip!
I take wayyyy too many pictures of sunsets but they're all so beautiful. heart eyes.
This is a picture of me at 49,900 words?? WHY DIDN'T I TAKE ONE AT 50,000. i'm so strange.
I TOOK A SELFIE WITH ONE OF THE STATUES AT THE WOMENS MUSEUM AT SENECA FALLS. i'm so strange.
How is your December so far? How was your November? On a scale from Scrooge to Mariah Carey how festive are you feeling right now?
peace out y'all,
