one year…

I couldn’t let today go unnoticed. You see, it was exactly a year  ago that I published my first blog post!

Here, a year later, I now have:


841 visitors


129 posts



Besides those lovely numbers, I have also gained things that can’t be measured, such as creativity in areas like photography, editing, and graphic design skills, and much more.

I’ve been blessed to come across other bloggers that share many of my same beliefs, hobbies, and talents.

So, here is to another year of growing and learning…

Care to join me?

P.S. If you would like to check out my first blog post, click here.

when life gives you lemons

We all know that saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” right?

So often in life, when things don’t go our way, or we don’t get what we want, it is SO easy to be upset and discontented.

What if we looked at life from a different perspective?

What if, when things don’t  go our way, we look and see why? What if our motives were selfish? (Hint: Too often if we want our own way for our own gratification, there is a problem.)

Remember the lemonade part?

Instead of being discontented with circumstances, what if we all looked for the good in the situation?

In almost everything you experience, there is something to be learned, no matter if the situation is good or bad, big or small.

You know what else?

If it seems like you aren’t getting what you want, and it seems like it should be a good thing to have, maybe you need to grow.

Sometimes before we can have a good thing, God needs to work with us so we don’t mess it up.

Something could be the perfect thing for you, but if you aren’t ready for it, and you’re trusting in and submitting to God, He will work with you so you can be ready for it.

So always remember, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” and always look for the silver linings on dark clouds!

Sometimes post ideas come at the randomest times. This post was written out at midnight awhile back, but somehow, it actually turned out to be something to post, unlike other ideas I’ve had at odd times.

that awkward moment when…

… you’re singing alone, then you realize that someone actually heard every single {very loud} note

… you put the milk in the cupboard, and the cereal in the fridge

… you accidentally call someone by the wrong name

… you realize your joke isn’t as funny out loud as it was in your head

… you misspell “awkward”

… you can’t find something, then realize it was in your pocket (or in your hand) all the time

… your stomach growls in a silent room

… you haven’t posted in almost two weeks

Guys, take a look at my sidebar. It says I have 97 followers!!! With just three more people, we could reach 100! So, tell your friends, and tell your enemies, because when we reach 100, I’m planning on doing something special in celebration!


so, it was my birthday…

Guys, usually I don’t post videos, but today is an exception. In case you didn’t know, I turned 16 last weekend, and well, you could say it’s kinda a big deal for me.

If you are a homeschooler, chances are you probably have heard of Blimey Cow – if you haven’t, go check them out! Basically, it’s a couple of brothers (Jordan and Josh Taylor), that post sarcastic videos about relevant issues such as religion and politics. I don’t agree with all their stuff, but trust me, some of their videos are so. spot. on.

Well, because it was my birthday, I’m reposting a hilarious video from Jordan’s personal channel, called “Weird Things That Happen On Your Birthday.” Go ahead and watch it, then keep scrolling down.

While I can’t relate to everything (like I don’t have Facebook), the first time I saw this I was like, “Yes! I get this! And this is sooo funny!”

So, are birthdays weird or awesome?

Like this post if you think it’s weird to blow on other people’s food! 😀
