October 21-24



Side Note: Here's me being a dork with my glorious pumpkin iced coffee. This is the content no one wanted, but I'm bringing you anyway.

October 21

Woke up feeling like all I wanted to do was listen to Paramore's "Now." Never did.

October 22

I think the best part was rocking out to some pretty happenin' rap music with Mom and Kaylie in the kitchen, which Dad (nearly) caught on video tape (by which I mean his phone).

October 23

Today I bought my Halloween costume (Slytherin student at Hogwarts) and the tattooed cashier lady said, "Now that's my kind of girl!" And we talked with another cashier dude about Death Eater robes and the abundance of Gryffindor swag. #SlytherinIsCanon

October 24

Good day, featuring grape Fanta lip balm, a new episode of Survivor and My Chemical Romance.

October 17-20



Side Note: This is my beautiful mother and I love her very much.

October 17

It's a matter of mindset and what you tell yourself every day, because what you tell yourself, you'll believe.

October 18

It's the little things - Good book, slouchy T-shirt, cocoa candle. Still need to spend less time online because it distracts me and makes me compare myself. I enjoy life so much more without it.

October 19

Dad looked at me on the way out of the house today, as the sky was starting to pale, and said, "I'm proud of you." I said, "Thank you." Then, "For what?" And he said, "For everything" and that compliment carried me and I think I might put it in my story.

October 20

The kind of morning that you feel must be written in books. Slept in til dawn with a literal bird chirping to wake me up, then a soft shirt, bowl of makeshift oatmeal cereal and Declan McKenna songs all the way to the coffee shop.

October 13-16

October 13

This has been an absolute riot of a weekend. My purchases, in no particular order, from the flea market:

  • An AJR hat (No regrets)
  • An Abba record
  • 2 pins: 1 grey horse, 1 "I love clogging"
    • (I will now learn to love clogging)
  • A $1 painting that has to be seen to be believed (Included above for your viewing pleasure)
  • A Princess Diaries DVD

October 14

My goals are to be peace, to be still, to sit and listen and commune with Jesus. To take a deep breath and unclench my fists. To memorize Scripture and listen to heartening folk music and be confident and let air fill my lungs, to feel alive.

October 15

Watched "Splash" with the family which is adorable. Laughed a lot. 

October 16

Stayed up way too late talking with the sister and I am going to be tired tomorrow but I love those kinds of talks.

October 8-12

October 8

Long day, good day. Cocoa candle, lyrics, design, surprise sushi, taking Friday off. YES!

October 9

All I really wanted to do was watch the Princess Diaries.

October 10

Sometimes I feel like the most awkward human known to man. But then I laugh at myself because life's too short. But then I wonder if people can see me laughing (they can) which would be additionally awkward. For what it's worth.

October 11

An odd day, but not a bad one.

October 12

Quote of the Day: "I didn't know that you could get a cat to walk on a leash."

October 4-7

October 4

I started off today feeling super low and worn out and prayed wordlessly. And then my day only continued to skyrocket, often to my amazement and sheer joy. God is so good and He cares for me even when I can't form words to pray. And that is all, good night.

October 5

Sleep is important. Sleep is it, yo.

October 6 

There's something about getting up to drive and just going. There is something about adventure that appeals.

October 7

I didn't expect to get a 4 mile run today, but I did! There was a *small* October breeze and I listened to the full twenty one pilots album. That last song "Leave the City" gave me chills.

September 29-October 3



September 29

It's the kind of morning where mist envelops everywhere and the trees stretch up to the sun and I'm wide awake, it's morning.

September 30

Last day of September, which seems incredible. Though it's not anywhere close to sweater weather yet, and I wish it was, I'm excited for October. Markets and pumpkins and Halloween are some of my favorite things. Bring that autumn weather.

October 1

Sometimes the Lord answers prayer instantly. Even if it's not always the answers we want, it's good to see His faithfulness.

October 2

Sometimes I wonder if the Lord is going to provide for me, but I know He is.

Side Note: I found it hilarious and so very human that part of my October 1 entry was so uplifted, while October 2 was so skeptical. OH DEAR.

October 3

When your fun plans turn to anxiety, you go out for pie.

Side Note: It was pumpkin pie. 🎃
