something different || q+a collab

 Today I have something kinda different for you all!
My blogging friend Victoria and I have worked together on a blog collab, and she is guest posting today!
We both thought of several fun, deep, or interesting questions, and we’re both answering them.
If you want to read my answers, head over to The Homeschooler’s Hangout and you’ll find them there!
So, without any further ado, let’s meet Victoria!

Wassup peeps, I’m Victoria from The Homeschooler’s Hangout! *winning smile* My blog can be summed up in three words: mental teenage girl. I don’t really hold back on the weirdness, so, yeah. I try to be funny and write witty posts on all kinds o’ stuff. Thanks, Sunshine, for doing this collab Q&A! Onto the questions.

1. If you could spend a day with anyone in the world, past or present, who would it be?

Well, I’ll get to see all the Bible characters in Heaven, so…huh. I guess one of my favorite Youtubers xP

2. If you could have an exotic animal as a pet, which one? 

Probably a lion.

3. Would you rather go to space or down into a deep-sea trench?

I guess a deep-sea trench…

4. Would you rather live in a treehouse or someplace underground?

Treehouse.

5. If you could jump into any video/computer game, which one?

The computer game Super Mario 64 o.o It was so fun…*sighs*

6. If you could only save three things form your burning house, what would they be?

My bedroom, kitchen, and garage. JK. My tablet, laptop, and wallet.

7. Would you rather have no one attend your wedding or your funeral?

Funeral. I mean, I’ll be dead, so I won’t care. I would just hope people were at home mourning, not fighting over my stuff.

8. Would you rather have the ability to be invisible for a day or the ability to read minds for a day?

I’d want to read minds.

9. If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?

If a person had never heard of God or the Bible in their entire life and died, how would they be judged?

10. What is your first memory as a child?

I have no idea what the first one is…I literally have the worst memory. Sorry.

11. What do you see yourself doing ten years from now?

Lounging in the spare room of my parents’ house. Nah, I kind of see myself married, maybe with a kid.

i’ve been keeping a secret

Yes, ’tis true.

About a month ago, my aunt (who is a photographer), gave me her old camera because she had decided to update her equipment.

That means I got a lovely Canon DSLR.

So why haven’t I told you about this yet?

Good question!

Because I don’t have a computer with regular USB ports, I had to order a special USB adapter cord and wait for it to come in the mail…which it did today!

I’m so excited to be showing you some of the pictures I’ve been taking over the past few weeks! For now, while I’m still learning how everything works, and getting used to manually adjusting settings and such, my pictures are hit and miss. One turns out good, but then the next five will be like what…? How did THAT happen???

Anyway, without further ado, here are some of my experiments.

These photos were taken in my room…’cause that’s where I am today-doing some studying, writing, and obviously photography, editing, and blogging.

This time of year is when my room suddenly becomes my happy place. The lighting is brighter and cleaner, I have my spring and summer decor out, and somehow it all comes together into my own special haven.

🌸🌸🌸

spring day

Sunshine fades,
Then comes again.
Birds chirp a serenade,
Glad there is no rain.

I feel a wistfulness,
Rising in my soul.
Something akin to sadness,
Makes my heart feel full.

Yes, I love the sun,
Yes, I love the birds.
But something is undone,
Not described with words.

for a year this poem has sat, awaiting the day when i would finally publish it
