New Year Resolutions 2014


     I am very much aware that it is almost February and not the beginning of 2014 but I'm going to make February my new beginning.  Through the month of January, I have been brainstorming ideas and goals I plan on meeting this year.  Usually, I never make resolutions but sometimes a change is always good. 
     Two thousand fourteen is my clean slate.  As some of you may know, 2013 was a pretty crappy year for me and I intend to leave it in the past forever.  I cannot be more excited to begin my New Year with confidence that this year will be different and better. 

Events to come of 2014:
  • Divergent movie, The Fault in Our Stars movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider Man 2, Mockingjay Part 1, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again!
  • OSU vs. Iowa basketball game
  • ProLife March in Washington DC
  • My brother's wedding- May 24th  
  • My cousin's wedding
  • Three graduation parties of my cousins
  • Volunteering at vacation bible school
  • My mom leaving for Germany for 2 weeks
  • Country Fest 2014
  • I turn 16
  • (Hopefully) Get my driver's license.
  • Second year of Catholic Family Land
  • Maybe a vacation to the beach?
  • My first year of going to a public school
  • Get my braces off

Goals/Resolutions for 2014

  • Exercise (run, workout, etc.)
  • Be more confident in myself
  • Be a better friend
  • Be less of a procrastinater 
  • Write. Write. Write.
  • Draw. Sketch. Paint.
  • Finish my studio
  • Paint a masterpiece
  • Play/learn my guitar
  • Join CYO basketball
  • Reach 100 followers on my blog
  • Have 300 followers on Instagram
  • Read 50 books
  • Make my first YouTube video
  • Have 100 YouTube subscribers
  • Journal EVERYTHING
  • Post 164 posts on this blog in one year
  • Be more dauntless ;)
  • Go to homecoming
  • Make a memory jar
  • Learn how to do graffiti 
  • Do my own version of Van Gogh's Starry Night
  • Learn to write calligraphy
  • Let my hair grow even longer
  • Do something that scares me
  • Finish all the seasons of a TV show

          I am so excited to begin this new year with a clean slate and new goals to conquer.  If you haven't created any goals for yourself this year, you should! Dare yourself to step outside your comfort zone, try new things, and make yourself a better person.  We all have hopes and dreams to accomplish one day and it's not just going to be a skip in the park; it's going to take time and maybe you'll go through some rough patches and feel like giving up. So take baby steps.  Write down the goals you need to do to get to your dream.  Each year make a list and you'll slowly make your way across the stepping stones of life. You'll feel much better about yourself at the end of the year, as well. So tell me, what goals are you going to complete this year?

The Sunshine Award

I'd like to give a shoutout to the one and only Lila aka My Fangirl Buddy for tagging me in the Sunshine Award! She's awesome and you should go follow her flawless blog!

(I hope you enjoy reading me answers)

The rules are:
1. Thank the blogger that nominated her and link to her blog
2. Nominate other bloggers and let them know on their blogs
3. Answer a list of ten questions
4. The Sunshine Award button must be posted on the blog




1: What is your dream job?
Over the years, my dream job has been constantly changing but I'm pretty certain on what I want to do now.  My dream job is to get my book series published and become an author, while, being a famous YouTuber and traveling the world, having fun, and just making people laugh.  I don't want to be just another number on the world's population number. I want to be somebody; I want people to know my name.

2: What are some of your goals for 2014?
I've been thinking about this a lot lately.  I'm not sure yet. I am planning on writing a big New Years Resolutions post very soon. So stay tuned ;)

3: If you had three wishes,what would you wish for?
This question is always hard.  I'd wish that people would be able to live their life freely and not be so afraid of failure and what other people would think of their actions and looks.  I'd wish that One Direction would be immortal and make music for eternity so my children and my children's children would be able to experience them and the happiness that they bring you as they've done to me. And lastly, I'd wish that abortion would end so that millions of babies could be saved. 

4: What was your favorite part about 2013?
Honestly, 2013 was a really crappy year for me and I'm trying to forget about it; bury it in the ground and never think about it again. It's in the past.

5: Where is your favorite place to go?
Probably my library since the nearest book store is 1 to 2 hours away, but I also love travelling so anytime I'm going out-of-state, I'm super happy. 

6: What song describes you the most?
Definitely American Girl by Bonnie McKee.

7: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I hope I'll be in college, an on-my-way-to-being-famous YouTuber, a soon-to-be author, and be in a series relationship.

8: How would you describe yourself?
Crazy, weird, funny, nerdy, competitive, outgoing, friendly, and nice.

9: What is your inspiration?
Definitely music and black and white pictures

10: Did you have fun doing this post?
Yes, I did!

I tag everybody who has a blog to do this tag! It's a great way to get your followers to know you a little better.

xoxo,

Go Buckeyes!


What better way to start off the new year than to go to an OSU basketball game?  On January 12th of 2014, I was able to experience my very first college basketball game with some of my friends. We had awesome seats and, luckily, I decided to bring my camera which was rather smart of me since my ipod and phone both have terrible cameras. 




       The game was so exciting (even though we lost) especially when I was able to experience it with some of my close friends (picture above from left to right: Ali, Lisa, Macey, Me, and Paige).  And then of course, there's the one and only Aaron Craft.  If you live in Ohio, you will understand the fangirl feels of me actually seeing him in person and not just on TV.  If you are not from Ohio, you should know that Aaron Craft is the man-crush of every girl in Ohio from the ages of 10 to, at least, 30.  It's basically an unwritten law in Ohio that if you're a girl, you have to be in love with this guy. 

Ladies, I introduce you to Aaron Craft ☟



Isn't he a cutie? Although, unfortunately, he's not single but, recently, engaged.  Let's just say many Ohioans' hearts have been broken (including mine).

Have you done anything exciting to start your new year?

xoxo,

Officially Permitted to Drive


Get my permit.

    I can now officially cross this off my bucket list and New Year's Resolution.

I will admit that I was more than nervous when I took my permit test this morning. My heart felt like it was going to pound through my chest. Although, after I finished (and passed), I felt so good about myself! I have accomplished something that is only the beginning of my (more mature) life that is yet to come.  It's so exciting but yet so terrifying! First comes my permit, then my license, then a job, and so on.  So many more responsibilities. But I'm ready for it! I'm ready to take on the world and be a little crazy and rebellious! I'm ready for the late nights out on weekends and fun teenage life that has yet to come and that I have yet to experience. (At least, that's how it is where I live).  So bring it on, Future!

Bring it on!
