Update

Hey guys! Been a while, hasn’t it?

So I just wanna say, I’m really sorry. I lied in my last update. I said I would try to post at least once or twice a week, and I didn’t. It’s been a long time since my last post, actually…

Basically, I worked at this plant nursery for the summer, and the boss was terrible. Like, he had this terrible attitude and yelled at people even when they did something right, and nearly everyone quit because of it. So, I ended up working twenty-four/seven to make up for all the lost workers.

It was… Yeah. You can imagine.

Anyway, I finally quit this past Thursday so that I could free myself up for the rest of the summer until I head off to college on the fifteenth.

That’s right! I’m moving into college on August 15th, and I’m soooooo excited!!!! I would have posted sooner, but I’ve been going crazy with shopping, organizing, and spending time with friends and family. I’m actually still going crazy with all of that stuff, but I decided it’s about time that I apologized.

Is this a promise to post more often?

No, not necessarily.

This is more of an update to let you guys know that I haven’t forgotten about this blog. If I write any new poems that I’m satisfied with, I’ll post them. If I find some inspiration, I’ll write something for Writing 101. If a random short story comes to mind, I’ll post that.

Basically, I’ll try to post more often, but no promise. I don’t know what college will be like yet, but I’ll at least try to post on weekends.

So, yeah. I hope you all had a great summer, and I hope the year has been good to you so far.

I wish you the best in writing! And to you students, I wish you the best in your return to school. I hope this blog helps you in becoming a stronger and more confident writer.

Until next time, happy writing!!!

A New Chapter

So I’ve been wondering.

I’ve just recently graduated and I’ll be heading off to college August 15. My life is changing more now than it ever has before. I’m going to be living on my own, taking are of myself, deciding my own educational path and where that path will lead me.

When I was little, I imagined that my entire life was a story that God was reading to his angels. I imagined that it was a pop-up book that moved like magic, and that’s how God always kept track of me and took care of me.

Of course, as I grew older, I realized that couldn’t work because God watched over everyone, not just me, so he couldn’t just be reading the angels a story about me. Plus, I can’t imagine the angels sitting around to have a children’s book read to them. Rather, I imagine they’d be reading books on their own time.

What’s my point in all of this?

Well, sometimes I wonder if I was right. When I was little, I mean. They say that major changes in your life (like the change I’m facing now) are the start of new chapters in your story. If people use that reference so often, who’s to say I was wrong?

Maybe I am a book character in some exciting novel about my life, and God doesn’t necessarily need to read it because he’s already read it. Maybe you all are as well.

In that case, I wonder what kind of character I would be? I don’t think I’m the head protagonist, but maybe a supporting character whom most people don’t actually pay much mind to, but some people love.

Who knows? All we can do is wonder…

Ella’s Secret

“Ella, my darling. I want to tell you a secret, a great secret that will see you through all the trials that life can offer. You must always remember this: Have courage and be kind. You have more kindness in your little finger than most people possess in their whole body. And it has power, more than you know. And magic.”
