Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentines Day, everyone!

This is one of my favorite days of the year (although not as much this year since it’s on a Tuesday and I have to do schoolwork so… :P) because it’s such a wonderful time and I LOVE love!

Also, you get to eat chocolate and watch romcoms (although not really the romcoms if you’re my age and you can’t watch anything that was rated above 15 years old on Common Sense Media) which is pretty cool.

I am currently single (which is fairly normal for a homeschooled 13 year old) but I have an amazing family and fantastic friends, so it’s not like I’m ALONE. 😛

I actually have a minor cold right now, so that’s not cool, but hey, I’m able to eat chocolate and I’m not sick enough to where I can’t walk.

Anyways, I was curious, what do you guys do on Valentine’s Day? Do you hang out with your BF or GF? Do you spend time with friends? Or do you enjoy curling up in bed with Netflix and literally all of the chocolate that you can stuff in your face? <—- ME

Let me know how you celebrate Valentine’s Day in the comments!

Lots of love!

30 Day, Gallon A Day Water Challenge

Hello everyone!

I first wanted to say that I got NO name suggestions on my last post. RAEGKAFGKDGKADGM.

Lol, it’s okay. But I just wanted to ask you to please check out my last post and suggest some names. Thanks!

Now, onto the important stuff:

Today I started the 30 Day Water Challenge, which is basically where you drink a gallon of water every day for thirty days.

Needless to say, it definitely IS a challenge.

I have a 24 ounce water bottle and I had to fill it up FIVE times to get to 120 ounces (which is 8 ounces less than a gallon, so I’m kind of cheating a little, but…. uh… yeah.

So, I’ve heard it gets easier after a while, but it is a struggle at first. You kind of start hating the taste of water just because it’s so bland, and if you’re like me, your stomach wants to do that thing where the water jiggles around in your stomach. I ate a lot less dinner tonight, which is actually a good thing, because I snack a lot.

Let me just list the pros and cons to this challenge:

PROS –

It’s supposed to keep you energized all day

It’s supposed to help you wake up easier and happier

It helps to flush out toxins

It helps you lose weight

It helps you be sure of when you are REALLY hungry and not just bored

It’s supposed to help clear up your acne and give you more glowy skin

It might stimulate hair and nail growth.

 

CONS –

It can be really filling, which makes it hard to continue

You have to pee a LOT

If you do not have a gallon or half gallon bottle, you have to refill a LOT

 

The pros DEFINITELY outweigh the cons. Although, there were at least three times today where I had to pee multiple times within 40 minutes of each other, so that was not cool. So, I’ve used the bathrooms countless times, by the last bottle I was starting to hate water, and it was a very slight nuisance to have to refill it, but I usually did it when I was getting up anyways.

I have had no immediate effects, but I will see if I wake up better and stay more energized tomorrow (I don’t know if that is an instant effect) and see how my skin looks.

Have you guys done this challenge or will you attempt to do it? Let me know in the comments below!

Have a WATERful day! (I know, I know. Super cheesy)

QOTD – Day #3

Hi guys!

The final quote is…

5568ab0a3eed85ed35102db4c2087f9b.jpg

As many of you may know, I love acting. In fact, I have a play coming up in just over a week.

I liked this quote because there is truth behind it. It’s sometimes hard not to find a part of yourself in the character you play, whether you put it there, or it was already there for you.

Lol, something that I put in my characters, are glasses. (Prepare for a really, REALLY bad example) I wear glasses and my characters don’t…

Me: I DON YOU GLASSES DEAR FRIEND.

Character: But I don’t wear-

Me: GLASSES. FOR YOU. FROM ME.

Character: But-

Me: YOU ARE WELCOME.

 

… 😛
If I’m being honest, everything that I’m finding that is like myself was already in the character. I didn’t put it there; the writers did. Then I found out the similarities during rehearsal. But still, it is like myself.

Anyways, I leave this (once again) as an open nomination. Enjoy 😛

Comment down below what your favorite thing to do is! Mine is acting 🙂

Thanks for reading guys!

QOTD – Day #2

Hi guys!

Welcome to quote of the day challenge day #2!!!! Only one more day to go already 😛

Today’s quote is:

Without-music-life-would-be-a-mistake.-Friedrich-Nietzsche

Music is so important to me. It tells a story in such a beautiful melodic way. It can make you happy, sad, excited, dance, sing, and feel just plain good about life. Music is such a good way to forget about whatever problem you had the minute before. Typically, whenever I’m upset, I put on some Sabrina Carpenter music, dance around the room, sing-along and appreciate the lyrics. Soon enough, I won’t feel bad anymore.

I leave this as open nomination! Say I nominated you! 😀

Comment down below what music means to you!

Thanks for reading guys!
