Guess Who’s Back!

Hello everyone! It’s been a while hasn’t it? I’m back and finished with all of my exams! Thanks to all of you for your patience and encouragement! It’s meant a lot to me. :)

backtoblogging

In case you didn’t know why I was gone for so long, I had exams and needed to take a break from blogging to focus on studying, studying, and more studying. I’ve already gotten back some of my final grades and I’m very happy with them. I’m not sure I would have done as well if I hadn’t taken a break from blogging. As much as I’ve missed you all, I’m glad I took the break.

There’s lot of excitement today! Summer is officially here and I’m back to blogging again. YAY! I’ve got lots of fun things planned for the very near future so keep an eye out for some more blog posts and Youtube videos!

I’m super excited to be blogging again! Thanks again for all of the encouragement!

Life As A Student During My Busy Week

Hey, everybody! So I was trying to do Blogmas this year but I missed a post yesterday(!!!) and so yeah, that failed. Oh well. Anyway, life has been pretty hectic this week and it’s only Tuesday. Instead of a Blogmas post, here’s a life update and a glimpse at my life as a student during the busiest week of the year. :)

life

So let’s see. Last weekend, I started working on a painting for my Oma. My mom thought it would be nice if I made a painting with a Dutch Prayer on it. I am about a quarter of the way done so I’d say it’s going pretty well!

Yesterday was pretty crazy too. I had school as always but you know those weeks when the teachers are like, “It’s almost the end of the quarter and I don’t have enough things in the grade book!”? Yeah, it’s that kind of week. Except I have an exam on Friday! Yay! So I was assigned a lot of homework but it all worked out because I was able to get some things done before and during school. Then, after school, I went to my induction ceremony where I was inducted into the National Art Honors Society! Fun, fun! So that means, I’ll be able to post more about art because I’ll be doing more art. The ceremony was a lot of fun. The president and vice president gave out flowers to everyone who was inducted. I loved mine! It’s so pretty! :)

Today, I woke up early to finish an essay for my Bible class but I feel really good about it so the grade should be pretty okay. Every Tuesday, my school has Chapel but because there is a Fine Arts’ Chapel tomorrow, the principal bought all of the students ice cream and played Christmas music on the intercom for 30 minutes! It was a great way to start the day! And the rest of the day was fun too. After school, I went to the dentist and it was pretty scary for me (because you know, sharp objects!) but my mom encouraged me to remember Bible verses so then I was okay.

So that was my week so far. I have a busy rest of the week ahead of me, with two quizzes, a test, and a performance tomorrow, exam reviews on Thursday and my first exam on Friday. And there are fun things too, like Christmas parties, projects, performances, and birthday parties. But, the great thing to keep in mind is that in 8 short days, all of the exams will be over. :)

I hope you all have a great day and rest of the week! Keep being happy and hopeful. :) ~Abi

How is your week so far? Do you like these types of posts?

September Favorites

Hey, everyone! Happy October! I hope your month has started off great so far! I actually have a pretty relaxed week so I’m excited. September was pretty busy for me with being back at school and all but it was great. Here are my September favorites.

september favorites

  1. Fashion & Compassion – F&C has the most beautiful jewelry I have every seen! I found their site while working on a photography project. I love their photography and their products. Be sure to check out the Fashion & Compassion website here and their instagram here.
  2. Bujos – I started my bullet journal way back in May but the layouts that I made for September were my favorite so far.
  3. Locker shelves – I have a textbook in evry one of my seven classes at school so being able to put my books in a locker is such a blessing for me!
  4. Candy corn – As I’ve mentioned before, candy corn is one of my favorite fall treats. I look forward to opening my first bag of candy corn every fall.
  5. Canva.com – Canva was recommended to me by a fellow blogger and I absolutely love it. I’ve used it to make the headers in these couple of posts.
  6. Quizlet.com – I have been using quizlet for studying French and Spanish and it has been extremely helpful fo rlistening to the words. I recommend it for anyone studying languages.
  7. Colored fashcards – My mom found some hot pink and orange falshcards at Walmart a while ago and I’ve been using them to help study my languages. The bright colors somehow help me memorize them better.
  8. Beautiful Messes by Hillary Scott – “All that baggage we keep on dragging around, Ain’t it time we start laying it down? Lay it down at the foot of the cross, Give it to the One who can carry it all. Even at our worst, to Him, we ain’t lost causes.”
  9. “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you.” ~ Isaiah 26:3
  10. “Be joyful in hope, patient in afflicatioon, faithful in prayer.” ~ Romans 12:12

What were your favorite things from September? What are you looking forward to about October? Let me know! I’d love to hear from you! :)

My Typical Monday

homeschoolerday

Hey, guys! Sorry I haven’t written these past weeks. I have literally been doing school this entire time. Anyways, today I’ve decided to post about a day in the life of a homeschooler, my typical Monday. This was suggested by two of my followers, Lisa H. and Grace J.

Typical-Monday

8:00 – My morning begins as I get dressed and ready for school. I try to open my blinds and make my bed as soon as I wake up so that I can start my day looking at the beautiful (and sometimes cloudy) sky.

8:15 – I eat my breakfast with my parents. We usually talk about the plans for the day and what we have for the week. I also check the news for highlights and conversation starters. If needed, I will also finish up some last minute homework before my class starts.

9:30 – My first class begins. I am taking a Logic course that lasts for 85 minutes.

11:00 – My hour and a half break starts. I normally check my email and, if I don’t need to finish homework, I will bake something. I love baking cookie cakes but my sisters love the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins that I make more frequently, now that it’s fall.

12:30 – My Pre. Calculus class starts and around this time, my mom brings me lunch.

2:00 – My final class for the day, French, begins. I feel that this class ends far too quickly. :)

3:30 – I’ve finally finished all of my classes, so to reward myself, I have a snack break. Sometimes, if I have time, I’ll also have a piano break. This is also the time that I tell my mom about my day. She loves hearing my stories and knowing what the teachers are teaching me.

4:00 – Around 4, I start doing my homework for the next day. My homework partner is the Christian Genre Radio or the Indie Worship playlist on Spotify.

6:00 – My sisters come home from their play practice and I greet them happy and ready to hear their stories. We sit around the kitchen island and take turn asking and answering questions before they start on their homework.

6:30 – My dad gets home from work and my family sits down to dinner. I love being able to have a meal together as a family and hear about each other’s day. Plus, my mom is a great cook and that makes dinner time a lot better. :)

7:10 – I check the news again and maybe play piano.

7:30 – I continue to work on the homework that never ends. I will take a break every now and then just to keep myself focused on the task at hand.

9:45 – Exhausted, I head upstairs to get ready for bed. I like to pick out my outfit the night before to save time in the mornings. I also take a shower at night so that I can just get up and go in the mornings.

10:30 – Unless I am absolutely too tired to read, I will read a chapter in my Bible. I am going through a reading plan on the YouVersion app called “The One Year ® Bible”. It gives you a chapter from a couple of books to go through. You can follow me by searching the username: “AbiLeah” on the YouVersion app.

11:00 – My day finally ends, as I turn off the light. I try not to go to bed any later than 11.

Thank you so much for reading! This was a great idea and I like being able to actually see my schedule out on paper (or on a blog post). I hope you have a great day and a great week!
