My Life Monday #11

HELLO PEOPLE OF THE INTERNET

That was fun. Imagine me yelling. I love to yell.

Anyways… let’s get down to business. *trying so hard not to make the Disney reference*

Anxiety. We all have it. That’s what this post is about. Some have it worse than others, but it is indeed inside all of us. Mine came out of me during high school. It was bad freshman year, and it’s the reason why I never look forward to school and I need a ‘safety person’ if I’m going to be in big crowds. I start to shake, my mind starts racing, my body overreacts and I start to cry. That’s how my body reacts and when I’m alone and my body is starting to do all the signs I know I got to get away, I got to get away from people as fast as possible. Nobody can see this. This also occurs when I am under huge amounts of stress, which means I undergo this at least once a week.

Some people experience this so badly they have no more control over their body, I understand that, but I never feel it as bady as that.

When I go through this I have to be alone. I go into the band room closet, lock the door, put in my ear buds, and play my guitar. I need my time alone, and at this point my friends understand and they go through the motions with me. Because it’s okay to be alone.

I spend my time alone, but then the next day I come back to my friends. We go back to the usual hanging out at lunch. But every now and then when I don’t feel okay or I start to cry in the closet having a hug from Victor never kills. What I’m trying to say is that it’s okay be alone sometimes, but you can’t spend your entire life alone. If your friends don’t lift you up, and they don’t help you when your brain gets too out of control you might need some new people in your life. But don’t spend the rest of your life alone high school can actually be a great experience, but if you lock yourself in the closet the whole time nothing will ever be fun, and anxiety will take over your life. Don’t let it do that to you, you have a good life, so live it, and it is okay to talk to people about these things. In fact the right friends will always help you in these situations. But don’t spend all of high school mourning in a closet, and talk to someone about it hearing another voice than one that’s coming from your brain makes all the difference.

And another thing. It’s okay to feel sad for no reason. I tend to and I don’t even know why. But you can’t let any depression like that eat you up because then you can’t enjoy all the beauty that life has to offer. Personally in high school you need to find the people you love, and you need to find the thing you love. For me its Cross Country and Band… or Guitar. Cross Country is a lot of pain but it gets everything off my mind, besides our team is like family. A love hate relationship with running really bonds people together, heck, we even went out for breakfast last Friday before school. Band is also the light of my high school life. They play at the varsity football game, so we all hang out during the JV game. Mrs. Cassidy’s office is like home. We sit around watching Netflix laying out on her couch eating pizza pockets. It’s literally home. Which makes sense because Mrs. Cassidy is Band Mom as we call her. I’m not technically in band, but I’m in band as the honorary member as me and my friends call it. Band makes me feel at home and we live by our on rules, and finding a place, or even those people in your high school makes everything better, and it makes any problems fade away.

High school has so many positives although teenagers are stupid. But just like everything else in life you get out of it what you put into it, and you can make it a good experience if you choose to make it one. And step one to making it a good experience is by slaying your dragons by yourself.

My Faith Monday #3

Hey guys, its Issie. Hope you are having a wonderful day, and I am posting just like I promised. Today’s post is a My Life Monday because God has always been something very important in my life, but it wasn’t until now I’ve been trying to deepen my relationship with Him.

Lately I’ve found myself just saying little prayers even though they don’t sound like prayers. Just these moments where I go “Oh God help me right now” it may sound sarcastic but I’m actually implying His help. With someone like me I find that to be the easiest thing to do, and I am legit so shocked when looking back and thinking that most of the time, it does work! It’s shocking what can happen when you let Him into you. It was never some big habit I had to get myself into for the type of praying I do but now it’s like second nature, if I need help I almost sarcastically say “Oh, God help me” but I mean it, and it actually works because despite how I may sound sarcastic I submerge myself in the possibility.

Sometimes if I remember, I also pray for all of my friends at night and for stuff that’s going on in my life.

I’m not perfect, and I don’t have the perfect relationship with Him, but it’s real and it’s mine, and something real is all I’ve ever wanted. For a long time it would feel like I was just wishing on a star that was just a plane, but I feel like I’m connected to Him.

Yesterday was Father’s Day, and last Father’s Day… kind of ironic but my mom and I had to get away from my dad for a bit, and it has turned a full 360. I do believe that one of the reasons for this is because of Jesus Christ.

It’s a matter of continuation, and giving your trust to something so unbelievable that it’s true. I know it’s hard, trust me I know, but with this little spark of a relationship I have with Him, I’m going to turn it into a fire.

So, hang in there everyone who doesn’t feel okay, and is depressed, and broken. This too shall pass, and it always gets better. Catch ya on the flip side!

My Life Monday #5

June 12, 2017

Hello my people, the people of the internet just scrolling through, the people who are following me and decided to read this, the people that have seen this on WordPress or have seen my instagram, long story short, hello and welcome.

So looking back… I haven’t posted in two solid weeks. I absolutely hate that. So, the week of finals for those of you who hung with me through that madness, I survived. I scored higher in Spanish than I thought, and did relatively well in Geometry, got almost a C in Adv. English (I could rant about that one, but I won’t go there) and I didn’t really pay attention to the rest of them, my mind was basically in the zone to do whatever it took to study, and I didn’t really care to know the outcome, I just wanted to be done with it, but I am back.

On top of trying to study, I was also trying to run for cross country and work with my animals for fair… I know that doesn’t sound as difficult as it really is. But goats can be a pain, and I worked almost as hard as I could because I wanted to win advanced horse showmanship. By the time I was done with finals I was so happy to go swimming with my friends on the last. Friday I had to gain as much rest as possible to prepare me for the 4am and 5:30 am mornings that came with the adventures of fair. I also had to pack my stuff and get organized. I know myself well now, and I’ve done enough fairs to know that before fair my shiz must be together, and I must gain extra hours of sleep to make up for the hours I will loose… I also know I must pack a pillow.

On  Saturday I had a horse show all day. I was blessed to receive first in freshman showmanship and second in advanced… (so close to winning advanced as a freshman, there’s always next year.) I also did a bunch of other classes but if you want to hear about that comment below.

Anyways, next day was fair day, we took the goats down to the fairgrounds, where their was so much non compacted dirt you couldn’t always see straight. I got so many pimples and so much dehydration from this barn… dirt in everything! The only people showing goats this year were some seniors. Let me tell you, these seniors were the nicest people you will ever meet. Abby, Marissa, and Darek. I normally get anxiety by being around people but I forced myself not to get anxious and it made out for a great experience with these great people. They graduated, but in FFA you can come back and show one last time. Which is cool, but it was nice to not be the loner sometimes and they always made people feel included. Shoutout to Abby if she’s creeping on my blog again.

I did pretty well at this fair, 2nd in market, 2nd in showmanship, and 1st in breeding. Definitely an improvement compared to the last county fair.

I ate so much junk food though. Their was this little kid, Marlin, his heffer died, and his dad took him to fair so he could have the experience. So, we gave him an experienced… he decided he liked barn duty and cleaning the barn for us, so we had him to that, and I paid him in food. Lots of it, I spent like $20 on him. We had some good times that little kid and I… ate so much junk food.

Victor also went to this fair (refresher: Victor AKA Kevin, my best friend since 2nd grade). So we had some lit times together. On the first day to pass the time we played blackjack, and I took his money  face *devilish smirk* (not all of it of course.) Some days we were bound to our separate barns, but on the day I got my new camera we had a photoshoot… we actually had several, and we explored the fair grounds. It was super cool.

“Issie, don’t go in there” Victor said nudging me over back to the track.

“Come on Victor, live a little” She said pulling his hand and smiling.

Basically sums up the entire adventure.

Finally, auction day was upon us. I was so happy to get rid of Squirt (my goat). He was sold for $8 a pound… that’s really good. I was really happy, but I had to wait around all day to auction him off, so Victor and I had another photoshoot, and his mom bought me food. It was getting to be about evening time after I sold, and my mom was with me so we ended up looking around at the exhibits, and I was dying over the photography, and the sketches of Ed Sheeran, Tyler, and Josh from Twenty Øne Piløts.

Eventually we left and I slept hella good, as usual. The next night was awards night, and I was blessed to receive a plaque for winning 1st in freshman horse showmanship. Hours of boredom later, finally left the fairgrounds for good this time, got the check for my animal, and went home.

Today is June 12th, basically my first day of summer. I slept in, put on my music, snap chatted my friends, ran, worked out, cleaned the house, put on my makeup, got dressed. Good times man, I’m feeling good. So that’s where I’ve been for two weeks. I don’t want to do that again, but I had no time to prep posts. On the bright side when I update the blog for July and August, it is going to look amazing!

This blog means a lot to me, so if you find me tolerable, please like and subscribe for more, and follow me on my instagram @thatgirlissie for sneak peaks of July’s photos.

Catch ya on the flip side!

My Life Monday #3: Where I’ve Been…

May 21, 2017

Not that any of you were worried, but I clearly was gone for a week… no big deal this isn’t like a youtube video when a beauty guru is gone for awhile and then comes back saying that their life was changed. But I basically didn’t post for a whole two weeks. Heck, I posted Quote Wednesday #12 on a Thursday!

As you already know two weeks ago I went to fair, so the week after that I was catching up on homework. The week after the first of May I had no time to write posts because all weekend I was still caught up with fair, once I got home the first thing I did was sleep, then the next thing you know it’s been two weeks since I’ve posted. I have caught up on all my late work, but the reason why I didn’t post last week was because a teacher assigned a big project, and I was caught up in that.

I’m getting my blog back in order. I know I don’t have that many followers, and I don’t have many people that like my posts but this blog does mean a lot to me and I appreciate everyone that has subscribed and does like my posts.

It’s almost the end of the school year, I’m counting the days until June 1st… (11 days) But because of that I’m also going crazy getting ready for finals. In addition to that, my school gets out on a Thursday, and on Saturday I have a horse show, and on Sunday I am going into the fair with my goats for another week of good vibes and crazy. But if the week after school gets out is fair that means I have to balance studying with finals and working with my goats and horse.

It’s all good, but if I do start drifting from the blog, that’s why, but I plan to be completely consistent over the summer.

With all that said let me let you in on some of the fun stuff that has been going on the past week.

My school puts on this thing called mud volleyball. They make every class 25 minutes and we get out at noon. The teachers still try and teach us stuff although nobody is focused! The Ag department BBQ’s and it’s freaking amazing! they have several games of corn whole for anyone, and they have canopy tents for people to chill. They have grass volleyball courts but the fun part is the three side by side courts with canal water being pumped into them to make the mud. It’s a blast.

This was our team, Victor has me on his back, the other girl next to me on Adam’s back is my bestie Andrea, and Angela and Miguel are on the bottom. We were the Eliminators… and we didn’t last past the first game.

IMG_20170512_202247_138
My girl Andrea

But that’s fine because the school hired a DJ, and it was basically a big dance floor on the grass, everyone was barefoot dancing their life away. Of course I was freaking owning it because I love to dance. I was sometimes forced in the mosh pit of sorts, but I prefer dancing off to the sides sometimes with Victor because I have trained him from 6th grade how to waltz, chacha (well he already kinda knew how to do that), the swing, the twist, and a little bit of salsa. It’s so much fun doing the chacha and breaking into a twist then spinning into him and having him dip me. We’ve never really had lessons on dancing, but sometimes the middle school would have dances and we would dance together and it would look like crap but four years later to 9th grade we make a great duo.

IMG_20170512_202116_753

So I danced like a crazy person for about five hours until the day ended. JoJo played volleyball with us, he’s actually crazy good. His dad plays and coaches volleyball, he played on the JV team, but then got moved up to Varsity. He left to play video games after playing volleyball but I begged him for a picture.

IMG_20170512_201754_491

Before I left school I went to the ag building. So for the entire week before this day I had been campaigning to be my FFA’s chapter reporter, so I went to go check and see if I had got it. I didn’t get the position, but while I was heading to my dad’s truck I saw Andrea and Victor so I took a pic with some of my favorite people.

IMG_20170512_202353_803

That was a great day!

The week after that my FFA chapter was holding and award ceremony for all the kids that participate a lot. They gave out tons of scholarships, made food, and thanked everyone that had been supporting us.

I won Outstanding Freshman in Agricultural Science and Outstanding Greenhand because of all the stuff I had taken part in this year with my FFA. I also won a spot in the point award trip. They take the top 20 kids that participate in the FFA they take them on an all expense paid day trip. I think we’re going to Santa Cruz. I’m pretty stoked.

I’ve also been hanging out in the band room a lot, one of the fair’s I go to has a competition for who can write and perform the best original song, so I have been working on that as much as I can. I have to figure out the strum pattern for the song before school ends and recorded it before school ends if I want it to sound especially good, because the band teacher will let me use the box drum and record it in high quality.

In addition to all of that I’ve also been trying to train a little bit here and there. Because this week I have a cross country meeting to attend, and I must admit I am quite intimidated, so I’m trying to be as ready as I can be for next season. Although I understand I won’t be able to progressively train until summer break.

So that’s where I’ve been doing and what I’ve got going on. Please like and subscribe for more. I hope you have a good life, and comment bellow what you’re excited for in summer… or don’t, your choice.

What up party people?

I’ve never said that before, and I doubt anyone would ever want me to say it again. Life has been pretty busy and yet so dull lately. I don’t do my daily workouts every day because livestock showing is upon us. At my school’s FFA program you can go to three fairs. I happen to be going to all three of those fairs and showing three specis of animals.

Fair #1:

-Breeding goats

-Market goats

Fair #2:

-Breeding goats

-Market goats

-Horse

Fair #3:

-Breeding goats

-Horse

-Possibly a dairy goat

-Possibly a buck (uncastrated male goat)

If you can’t tell I am totally into the boat biz. I have three does (female goats) at my house, whom I have to breed this summer so I can have my own product of genetics to show next year. One of those does I plan to show at three fairs. I also have two wethers (castrated male goats). They are for market purposes (by the way goat meat is high in protein and super healthy). But long story short I have been showing goats for six years now, so at this point I breed my animals and do some real competitive stuff. Because I am so competitive and I want to win I put hours and hours in on these goats, and let me tell you, it gets tiring. I also have to work with my horse, which I have a lot of fun with, but it is time consuming. Finally I gave my heifer, that I plan to put into the beef bred heifer program that my FFA offers next year. With almost everything I do, I am in it to win it, and it takes time to make something worth winning, but I love to do it.

I also have been trying super hard to pull my grades up, and you guys probably know that I haven’t been that fluid with my blog posts, but that is because I have been doing so much.

I have so much I want to write about, I feel very inspired, but by the time I get to the blog on my to do list I am totally out like a light.

I try and go to school dressing somewhat fashion forward I guess you can say. I never do, but if I dress like I’m awake it forces me to stay awake sometimes.

Life is going pretty great, but if I’m being honest I still need to get myself straight with God. Just to start diving into him, if that makes any sense, a My Faith Monday is coming soon. As well as a Music Monday because The Chainsmokers just released a new album. <3.

I feel like I am starting to let myself be slightly extroverted more and more. I will never be an extroverted person, nor do I want to be, but just some of the traits that they have, are traits I want to resemble.

JoJo and I still fight all the time, but that’s just because we’re basically siblings. The other night I tried to play Pokémon Planet with him. I knew where I needed to go to get my starter pokémon, I just didn’t know how to get them, so I sat there for awhile until Joe came to the starting village to help me out, and we texted back and forth as I was training my Charizard, he was just beating the crap out of the little lvl. 4-5 pokémon arround with his lvl. 17. Eventually my computer died. Poor Fitz (the name of my computer, named after Fitz from Marvel’s Agents of Shield). I could not re charge it because I had loaned my charger to a friend, who had it over the weekend. Today is Monday, and I got it back.

Tonight I want to do some dancing, take a shower, then have an early night, because I haven’t been able to really take time to chill or do something I wanted to do, and dancing is very relaxing to me, so I’mma have fun with that.

Sorry that this post was so all over the place, but I felt it would be nice if I updated, besides, it was therapeutic for me too. Chapter I don’t know, I think five of It Girl just went up, so check that out, if you don’t remember what happened last chapter, in the search bar on the right of this post type It Girl Chapter Four, or you can just read my post called Chapter Reviews to keep up with the stories.

The subscribe/follow button is on the home page on my blog just below the section on my music, so please subscribe, and to like, the button is down below. Thanks to everyone that is supporting me, I love to write and this is what I hope to do for the rest of my life.

See you on Wednesday, catch ya on the flip side!

Or assignments aren’t ready to do, and JoJo hasn’t mentioned if he wants to play Pokémon Showdown, so here I am. How are you? I am doing just dandy, I finally finished chapter four of The Telepathy Twins going up on Friday, and I am somewhat excited for it.

Today is going to be an epic night, I’m staying here after school to go to JoJo’s volleyball game, then grabbing my burrito and playing some dodgeball. Our FFA group is having a Burrito Dodge Ball meeting, where we have a dodge ball tournament, and we have a burrito truck come to the school. My friends and I are struggling to find two more people to get on our team, but whatever.

I can’t stop listening to Ed Sheeran’s new album, I don’t know what it is. I think my favorite song is by far “What Do I Know?” It’s just got good morals, good words, and I love to dance to it. Second favorite is hands down “Galway Girl” I will spontaneously pause in class and sing “SHE PLAYED A FIDDLE IN AN IRISH BAND, BUT SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH AND ENGLISHMAN, KISSED HER ON THE NECK, AND THEN I TOOK HER BY THE HAND AND SAID BABY I JUST WANT TO DANCE. MY PRETTY LITTLE GALWAY GIRL” while also singing the guitar patterns… I am an insult to all guitarists, but that’s okay.

I want to thank all the people that like, and subscribe to my blog. To be honest I love this blog so much, and I am constantly on it, and trying to promote myself as a writer, and photographer. So thank you to all who comment, like, and subscribe, even the people who take the time to creep my photography instagram. I post a picture every time I post something. I have had this blog going for three months now. I don’t has as much foot traffic as I did when I started this blog, but I have came a long way. I don’t have a billion subscribers, but I have enough to be able to reach people, and make a difference with my writing.

Don’t want to give an awkward promo, but my best friend whom I always talk about, JoJo has started a blog and decided he wanted to continue with it. But he wants to know that if he puts the effort in it will be worth it, so if he gets one comment he will try and make this a constant thing. http://www.chaoswriterblog.wordpress.com he’s insanely creative (emphasis on the insane), he’s got the best stories, so maybe give him a chance.

I have been trying so hard to get my grades up. I am on average one percent away from getting an A in all of my classes, and it is tearing me apart, but if I’m being honest I don’t have time to worry about it, I just have to get my work done.

Not to mention on top of the grad thing, I have been trying to eat healthy, but it’s hard when you’re a hungry teen and it’s lunch. Now I’m just trying to eat a shiz ton of protein to keep my energy up so I feel no need for food. Yesterday I did and intense ab, leg, and glute workout. I was so proud I did it, because it almost took two hours and a half… and I am so sore. But I enjoy working out, and as weird as it sounds I don’t like to eat junk food, I’ve heard that that’s something that happens when you start to exercise and eat healthy more. When I eat junk food my body instantly gets bloated, and I don’t enjoy it once so ever.

If you read this far, you are the true MVP’s, this is the first time in a few weeks I’ve been able to go on a life rant, hope you enjoyed.

Winter Homecoming 2k17

Photography Friday February 17, 2017

Winter Homecoming 2K17

Picture one is my guy friends and I in Pre Wrap for our first winter homecoming. They asked for Pre Wrap and I told him that we had to take a picture together. These dudes are the coolest guys despite what the status quo of high school says. They treat me like one of the guys but respect me like I’m a woman. Ladies get yourself a man that can do both, these guys are single by the way.

Looking badass in Pre Wrap

I normally don’t like taking selfies, but I felt selfies were in order for this occasion.

I wore this all day, and all night when I went to JoJo’s homecoming game. I had a great day with him and his family.

img_20170203_111902_486
Shaggy and Minne. Dress up days with my bestie.

I have had people come and go through my life, but these two guys have stayed constant. I have know the guy in the Minnie ears since 2nd grade, and we’ve always been able to talk to each other. The handsome man up top with my beautiful self is my best friend JoJo, him on the contrary I have only know since the beginning of freshman year, and he was the one who stayed, and he’s probably the best friend I will ever have.

img_20170201_221832_303
Minnie and me.

Note about high school: always do the dress up days, even if it’s a low key detailing for spirit, always do the dress up days. And above all, whatever you do, take pictures.

My instagram is basically just a lookbook of the evolution of me.

Hope you enjoyed this photography Friday, if you liked it give it a like, and subscribe for more.

February 17, 2017 9:28am

Good morning world. Where I live all we did our last four years was pray for rain, now you need to pray for no floods. Man, God works in mysterious ways, but their is nothing to fear, because when He wiped the world and Noah had to take all the animals on the ark God showed him a rainbow at the end of the 40 days and 40 nights representing his promise to the world. The promise is that he would never do anything like that again, so hang in there California.

Right now I’m sitting in the chair in my room, right next to my window listening to the wind howl, and my trees suffer looking like they’re almost gonna break. It’s Friday I think. I don’t know, once I’m out of school, I never know what day of the week it is. I’m not cool enough to ditch, but our school combined a few holiday breaks so we got out Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday (duh), and Monday. It won’t stop raining. I love the rain, and we need the rain even if it is more than necessary you have to know that God is going to make something good come out of this.

On the down side this means I can’t go on a photoshoot like I was wanting to this weekend to change up the theme of my website for spring. I also can’t hang out with JoJo because he’s in Modesto, and I was going to work out at the school with Victor, and run the stairs at the football field at my school, but it’s raining.

The cold has always made me feel fresh and has made me feel fantastic and motivated, but right now I am having a hard time finding motivation to work out, or even write! Writing is my everything and as I was writing this I realized I had three drafts of posts I tried to write, but lost motivation. I love to work out, it’s what I look forward to, but I can’t bring myself to do it. But if we’re being honest though if I actually went to the gym or to the weight room I would be going full out just because the machines make me work more, but these at home workouts are getting old because I have to be self motivated. If that makes sense. If I go to the gym the machines make me do the work, but if I’m at home I have to be motivated because all of my workouts are basically body body based, so I have to make my body do the workouts on it’s own. I think that’s an only me problem, but whatever.

I am just so happy I don’t have school. Sleeping in was long overdue.

This past week I’ve been playing a lot of Pokémon Showdown, and writing poetry. If you want to see some, comment bellow, but I don’t know that’s a super weird combination of hobbies. Not to mention I’ve been trying to play “Peace of Mind” by Boston on electric guitar, but I can’t find any videos or guitar tab, or sheet music that actually help.

I’ve also had this weird obsession lately with wanting to try winged liner for everyday looks, and I’ll watch tutorials, and look at pictures, I know how to do it, but I don’t. For one I don’t have a good liner, I have eye liner, but not a good liner. I also haven’t been wearing makeup to school much. I just do my eyebrows, because I have none, curl my hair, then I go to school. But when I think about putting on my foundation to to a full face of makeup for doing eyeliner and eye shadow, I just get lazy thinking about blending my Tarte Shape Tape concealer because it’s so thick, and I think that I’m just so lazy.

Being unmotivated is fantastic. (High levels of sarcasm.)

But aside for being unmotivated about some things I have tried doing a few things new, and pre writing some things. I am not sure what all I’m going to do for Mondays, but I’m liking Short Story Fridays, but sometimes it’s hard with school to write a new chapter and make it something meaningful. Maybe it will get better now that soccer is over, sadly, but I am tring to recognize my limitations. I am going to start doing quotes on Wednesdays. I don’t know if you’ll like it but I’m going to do it. So I ‘ll either just put a quote and a picture together, or insert a quote and explain/reflect upon it. Finally Fridays are Photography Fridays. So I will eather have a group of pictures, and tell the story behind them, or I do stories like The Telepathy Twins, that I tell with pictures.

I haven’t gotten much foot traffic on the site, but I’m worried. It might be better once I change the site for spring, but I can’t go on anny photoshoots any time soon. Although I think at rainy photoshoot might be so fantastic, but I don’t think my parents would let me. They have strong paranoia about me getting sick. Mom I know you’re reading this, hi, I love you, you paranid amazing mom you.

God bless you, and I hope you are doing good.

Wow, I just changed up the entire blog, and I love it. I am so proud of the look. Wow, it took a long time to get it that way, but I love the way it looked, I added some event calendars in the hopes that the calendars will make me pre write more stories. I am going for a photoshoot some time in the future, maybe with some friends, maybe on my own, long story short I love where this blog is going.

I am still trying to find a personal logo for this blog. I love logos, I write band logos on my hand all the time. I want an original logo like the Twenty One Pilots logo (|-/) because it means something to them.

I am also trying to find a name for the squad. For example:

Mylifeaseva’s followers: The Evanators

Meredith Foster’s followers: Merebears

Nikki and Gabby followers: The Delmar Fam

Alisha Marie (used to be Macbby11) Followers: Macbbys

Get the picture?

Anny ideas, put it in the comments. Long story short, I love the way my blog is looking, I am hoping to get more out of it once soccer season is over, and go even further. Thanks to all of my subscribers for putting up with me, and thanks to everyone who liked my blogs. Once again thanks to my Mom, Gabby my darling Gazelle, and JoJo who puts up with way too much of my craziness and reads almost all of my long winded blogs. So subscribe if you like, and subscribe if you like my content. Comment if you have any ideas, and I guess I’ll just…

Catch ya on the flip side!

I have not stayed up this late in maybe a month. Yes, I know, I am your grandma not a teenager.

I made it through today. Went to church with my family like usual, and had a great time with some friends there. Came back home, did some homework, and work. Had a meeting with an Ag advisor about my market and breeding goat project. That went well. Discovered some new music.

(side track) MUSIC RANT:

I just discovered Hey Violet. Oh, my gosh. They are the band that sings “Guys My Age” (very relatable song by the way), but looking for where to begin. Their sound is kind of like a pop-punk band. They have bubbly pop, and guitar solos in one song. It can make you want to flick your hair around like a girl in the beginning of a 90’s movie in her own little teenage world thinking everything is swel, to playing air electric guitar pretending your at your favorite rock concert. I love their sound, and their songs are so good, the words, the concepts, the sound it all goes together. So, so good. I adore their entire I Can Feel It album and love their song “Brand New Moves”.

Back to the regular blog.

Not looking forward to going to school tomorrow. I just have to make it through this one exam I have. I am still sick, but getting over it. I plan on playing in my soccer game tomorrow. I am not ready to go back to the drama, heartbreak and over all depressing truble I have to deal with at school. I have great friends that have my back, and I know I still struggle to have good vibes, but school is emotionally and physically draining. Yes, I know I sound annoying, but those are my exact emotions right now towards school. Tomorrow JoJo’s  sister comes back to school, I’m worried about her but I think all will be okay, I’ll still hang around more just to make sure JoJo doesn’t pull out her hair.

In other news. I finally finished this song I wrote in State Requirements class. I think it sounds alright. It took some work, but I like it. Thanks to my main music man Victor, it sounds good, but for the most part I did it myself. I also set music to the song too. Comment bellow if you want to hear an acoustic version. I do that a lot, writing poetry and songs, but now that I am getting more familiar with the anatomy of the guitar and the workings of sheet music, I can set music to my songs in innovative ways, so do comment below if you want to hear more of that.

That’s about all I have to say for now, if you liked it, please drop a like bellow, and if you find me tolerable please subscribe. Till then I wish you all a good life, with good vibes.

Catch ya on the flip side.
