Day 11

My mom is one of the sweetest, kindest, most hard-working people that I know. She has always been there for me when I needed it and takes time out of her day to do things for me. One thing that I learned from her is that tea makes everything better.

I have always liked photography but I found that my pictures weren’t that great. So I decided to take a photography class. My teacher challenged our class to participate in the 21-day self-portrait photography project. Through this project, I challenged myself to take better photos. I have seen myself grow as a photographer so I thank my wonderful teacher for helping me grow.

I get excited when fall starts rolling around; it’s my favorite season! But it’s also a stressful season with school and exams and performances. Life gets crazy and I get stressed. But I have hope because I have a God who will stand with me and help me to keep going.

“He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

– 1 Corinthians 1:8 –

Day 14

day15

When I was in elementary school, I was introduced to different clubs on club day. The one club that really stood out to me was the art club. The teacher for that was really fun and had crazy hair and an even crazier nickname. And I really wanted to be in the club but my family didn’t have a car so I didn’t have a way home from school after the Art Club.

My teachers were awesome and all wanted my sisters and me to get the chance to be in the club so they took it upon themselves to take us home from clubs every day. Sometimes they would even take us out to dinner at their own expense.

Without these teachers making sacrifices for us, I wouldn’t have been able to grow my love for art. I am forever grateful to them for being so kind and generous.Since elementary school, I have grown a lot in my art abilities. This year, I was inducted into the National Art Honor Society!

Some of my favorite books are the Gallagher Girl series. These series have encouraged me to write and keep writing. It was through this series that I really started to get excited about writing.  Ally Carter is my role model and dream author.


I hope you liked the pictures from these five days! Have a great day! Merry (almost) Christmas! :)

January Favorites

January has flown by so fast. Out of all the months, January would probably be my favorite because it gives us all a chance to change for the better. Between exam week, school, and busy schedules, it’s great to take a break and reflect on what happened the past month. So, without further ado, here are my top ten January favorites. :)

1. Piano Guys’ Simplified Favorites: Vol. 1

I got this piano book for Christmas and have been in love with it ever since. I am learning Arwin’s Vigil and I hope to start Moonlight very soon. And since my sister started taking cello lessons, there might just be a concert pretty soon.

2. The Gallagher Girl Book Series by Ally Carter

I absolutely love this book series. I read the first book and it was so well written and so well thought out that it inspired me to write a book of my own. This is a must read.

3. Little Women

This book (and movies) is one of my favorites. We just finished reading it for school and so Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth needed a shout out. I always seem to learn more each time I reread it.

4. Plant Nanny (app)

Plant Nanny is an app that encourages you to drink water. You pick a plant, and every time you drink water, you give the amount of water you drank to the plant and it grows. If you don’t water the plant, it will die, so don’t forget!

5. EOS Pomegranate Raspberry Lip Balm

I love the taste of this lip balm and it works! That is if I don’t lick it all off first. :P

6. Anais Anais Perfume by Cacharel

This perfume is really nice. I got it for Christmas and have fallen in love with it.

7. The Christy Miller Book Series by Robin Jones Gunn

These books are amazing. You can really connect with Christy as you read through her life’s adventures. I definitely recommend them!

8. Wild Berry Zinger Herbal Tea

This is one of my favorite teas. It’s fruity and sweet so no sugar is needed.

9. Music Tutor

This app has been especially helpful to me with low and high music notes. It took some getting used to in the beginning but I got the hang of it.

10. Peppermint Bark

My parents recently went on a trip and they brought back with them Peppermint Bark from Williams-Sonoma. It was eaten within a week; it was so good!

How was your January? I’d love to hear from you!
