Thought I might just let y’all know what’s been going on in my life recently, so this post will cover a range of topics that I will list in order to organize my thoughts.
1. My friends
Obviously, friendships have changed, and I’m okay with that. Regina is still one of my closest friends even though we don’t have any classes together this year, (tear), and I have two other really close friends, who I will refer to as Isa and April. I haven’t been friends with them for very long, but they’re the absolute best.
I have this other friend, Rosie, who I may or may not have talked about on here before. I think I have. I referred to her as my best friend last year, but ever since she got a boyfriend, I noticed the ever so slight disconnect, and the tear only turned into a rip with time. We’re working on patching it up this year, though, and I really like that. It was her birthday two days ago, and I hung around Rosie’s house with her and her boyfriend, and it was surprisingly pleasant.
I’ve also made a few more friends and/or gotten closer to certain people because we have classes together and things like that, but more about that some other time. 🙂
2. My family
My little brother Xav is starting sixth grade this coming week, and he’s really nervous. I can sort of see why: it’s the first time he’ll have to move classes, he doesn’t know the school as well as he knew his elementary school, and plus, eighth graders are scary. But he knows a lot of the kids that are going there, and he’s worried about being bullied, which doesn’t really make sense. Okay, his middle school doesn’t really have the best reputation, but it’s not that bad.
Also, if you’ve watched some of my Youtube videos, you’d notice that my filming location changed, and that’s because I was staying at my dad’s for a few weeks. I’m back at my mom’s now, and it feels weird, kind of like I’m coming back from a vacation, even though I was only 10 minutes away from my mom’s house. Anyway, it was fun.
3. My Youtube channel/ This blog
There’s been a lack of videos in the last two weeks because I’ve had absolutely no time to film or edit since school’s started. I always need to be doing something, whether it’s homework/studying, soccer practice, newspaper editing, and, as of two days ago, the school musical. We’re putting on Into the Woods, and I got Lucinda, one of the evil stepsisters, which I’m excited about. Unfortunately, it’s going to take time away from Youtube and blogging, which sucks, because I love talking to you guys. I’ll still try to do this stuff when I can, though.
4. My music taste
I don’t know why this is a category, haha. I just felt the need to discuss some of my recent favorite songs. I got into Imagine Dragons over the summer, but I kind of realized that a lot of their songs sounded the same, (don’t get me wrong, they’re still great), so I kind of moved away from them but sort of stuck to that genre of music and more. I listen to some Arctic Monkeys and One Republic and a lot of Lorde now. I started getting into the 5SOS craze too and re-fell in love with some One Direction songs. I also have Happy Little Pill on repeat by the lovely lovely Troye Sivan, not to mention all songs by the amazing Shawn Mendes, (who I also happen to have a major crush on; Regina can vouch for this….How could you not? He’s adorable.) My friends are also trying to introduce me to The Vamps and the 1975. If you guys have good music/bands/songs, please do give it to me! I love listening to different things.
So, I originally wrote two more categories, school and my birthday, but WordPress was mean and decided to delete them when I tried to post this. 😦
I’ll leave it at this for now. Will return when I have more time on my hands. Stay lovely! ❤
