Parisian Love

I love spending hours on youtube, it never feels like a waste of time because I’m always learning something or discovering a new style of filming. I found this link on a post of blog I follow with an honest-to-god depiction of what life as an AP student is really like. And so I started searching more videos like this one because I liked this little take on life through searches.

Then I came across this video and I fell in love. I must’ve watched ten times through before deciding to share it with you all. Isn’t this just the cutest way to share your life in all of it’s honesty?

Inspiration Comes In All Forms

I’m always finding inspiration in things when I don’t go looking for it. For instance, I just found a blog run by a dear old friend of mine. Her name is Mel.

I’ve known Mel since second grade and to be honest, I never liked her in the beginning. She was everything I wasn’t. Beautiful, funny, friendly, popular. And for a kid (and even for adults sometimes) that’s everything. I was a total loner when I was little. I was going through something I hope no one ever has to go through (no matter what age). And she was just this…goddess everyone seemed to look up to. Even me.

If your reading this Mel, did you know that you were my arch nemesis until I went into 9th grade? I hated you with a passion because I never thought I’d be as good as you. Now, being older, I realize that you’re as human as I am. You make mistakes, I make mistakes.

Back then, I never would have thought we’d ever sit down for coffee and chat or that I’d see you at all. But I’m so glad we did. Even if our paths never cross again, I want to let you know how much you’ve helped me. Not only did I realize I don’t have to be like you to be beautiful (but don’t we all wish), but I also learned friends come in all shapes, sizes, and times. You were there for me when I had no one else to turn to and thank you for that.

But since we’re done talking about all the gushy stuff, I wanna say why Mel is an inspiration for me. This girl has got class. If you look at her outfits posts on her blog you’ll see what I’m talking about. Stylish.

Plus, she’s one of the only people I know who is following her dream and is never letting other people say she’s too young. She’s only a year older than me and she already owns her own photography business along side her (I don’t feel the word boyfriend does their love justice) boyfriend, Chris. I don’t want to grow up to be her anymore, but I do love what she represents. And that’s never letting them tell you no.

Summer Inspires…


It’s getting to be summer time (omg! only 14 more days), and you know what that means. It means it’s time to get serious about writing again. The thing I miss most about summer is that whenever the school year rolls around, I never have the time or patience to write (or read for that matter). I usually spend most my time either writing my books or reading at least 50 books each summer. I miss doing that. I miss staying up late to finish a book. I miss sitting for hours at a time at my desk, writing away my thoughts, dreams, and stories.

Summer cannot come soon enough.

I’ve already started working on this book I’ve been writing since 7th grade. I’ve basically started it over each summer since, and I’m only on chapter 5. Maybe this summer I’ll actually get somewhere.

I’m also working on creating a list for this summers reading. Like I said, I read a lot, and tend to read about 10 books at the same time. Last year I had lots of time to read when we camped for a week and then lived at the church. It was pretty chill, and I’m hoping for that to happen again this year. Here’s a few of the books I read last summer:

Find my summer reading list here and come back to see as I cross hopefully all of them off!
