So much for blogging weekly, huh? Anyway, I need some help… I have read and reread all the books on my bookshelf. I need suggestions for what to read. I am dying to get my hands on a new book, but I can’t think of anything. Even names of authors would get me started. Help?
Also, I’m starting a new novel. I’m not sure what the title is yet, but it’s about a girl named Grace Patterson. She has nightmares that drastically change the way she thinks. It’s loosely based on personal experiences. I’m not sure exactly the category would be, but somewhere between crime and horror. But not too horrific… because then I’d just scare myself. 😉 But it’s coming along nicely. Grace is starting to grow on me. Ugh, I hate when that happens… I can never make anything bad happen to my characters without feeling like a jerk!
So, my mom is 30 weeks and 4 days pregnant. Baby Samuel is due to arrive in early June, but we’re thinking he’s gonna come early. I’m so excited! But so impatient as well. I’ve been on Pinterest to find things for Sammy when I’m bored. So far, I’ve found an adorable bib that I want to get for him (picture below) and some useful “crafts” to aid in his toddling years. 🙂 I’ve been praying for my cousin and my friend who are also pregnant. My cousin is 12 weeks and my friend is 10 weeks.
I’m not friends with any of you on Facebook, but I thought I should tell you that I decided to take a break from it until I graduate high school. I used to spend most of my time writing and being on Facebook, so I’m still not sure exactly what I’ll do with all my free-time… but it’s definitely going to be better spent without it… it’s already been a pretty fruitful few days! I plan to:
- Read the Bible through
- Spend more time with my family
- Work on having a better attitude
- Write a 300-400 page novel
- Lose 20 lbs (don’t worry, I can spare more than that…)
- Read books that I’ve never read
- Run a 10k
- Make more trips to the library
- Get a job
Yeah… these are some of my ambitions! I’m going to make a list of things I want to do before I graduate (next year), and I’ll share my adventures with you all! So far, I’ve hugged a wind turbine, fallen down a hill, learned some new science terminology, and decided to sing a solo on Good Friday at my church. Oh wow… I’m nervous. But God is in control. All glory goes to Him and Him alone. I’ll be singing “If That Isn’t Love” by Dottie Rambo. My grandparents and cousins are coming this weekend too. Praying for safe travels.
Well, I’ll be back soon… I hope. 🙂
