Random Post #4

Hey! It’s good to be back. ๐Ÿ™‚ School has been a lot lately (more on that in a minute.) How are all of you doing?

On to the randomness!

Random Topic #1: School

I recently had to leave the three collab blogs I’m part of: The Elven Realm of Writing, Girls Writing for Godโ€™s Glory, and ArtLab. This was because I needed to give more time to school. :/ If any of yโ€™all want to take my place on those 3 blogs, please donโ€™t hesitate to ask!

Though school is a lot, I am enjoying parts of it. I’m doing a really fun online writing class. I get to write an essay using KOTLC- that should be fun. ๐Ÿ˜€

Speaking of KOTLC, only 35 more days until Lodestar! AHHHHHH! O_o

Random Topic #2: Gnats

Have you ever heard of the Gnat Line?


Lots of people havenโ€™t heard of this. The Gnat Line is a geographical line represented on the map above. On the south side of that line resides a healthy population of gnats. Gnats are like really super tiny flies that are very annoying. The ones in my area donโ€™t bite, though some do. They swarm around you in droves ALL SUMMER LONG. Theyโ€™re still here in September! ๐Ÿ˜ก Iโ€™m not exactly a fan of them….

Random Topic #3: My Bedroom

I share a bedroom with several sisters. I sleep on the top bunk of a bunkbed. Itโ€™s a cozy room. We recently redecorated, and I took some pictures of my โ€œareaโ€ to show you all:

This is the first wall. The two posters are from Hobby Lobby, and I made the blue/gold polka dots with Washi tape. I also made the banner.

This is the other wall. I have my postcards here, along with several wall stickers and three small posters.

I love my posters! The one on the right is so colorful…

I made these diamonds with Washi tape.

This map poster is really detailed! It’s actually just a sheet of scrapbook paper. ๐Ÿ˜€

Random Topic #4: Used Books

We found a really awesome used bookstore in our town! I never even knew it existed until now. I hope we can go back there soon, it’s really amazing. They had a lot of good books there….

^ That’s my bookshelf. ^ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Random Topic #5: Fall Photography

It doesnโ€™t quite feel like fall here yet, but there are some signs that itโ€™s coming! I took some pictures in the woods:


That wraps up this post… what was your favorite topic? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sorry school is so crazy right now… Hopefully it lighten up! ๐Ÿ™‚ Quick question; what is the online writing course you are doing?
    Your room looks so pretty!!! You did a great job decorating! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Your bedroom was my favorite topic – probably cause mine will be re-done soon and it’s on my mind constantly. XD

  2. Random posts are my fave! ๐Ÿ˜‰ We miss you on TEROW and GWFGG, but we’re glad that resigning helps you lower the stress of trying to keep up with so many blogs.
    I’ve never even heard of the gnat line! That’s really neat! And oh dear…there are a lot of gnats where I live! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Your room looks so pretty! I share a room with my sister, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Your books are so neat! I love used bookstores. And YAY for Keeper! I got a pre-order of the book earlier in the year and it’s arriving on the release date! I’m SOOO excited!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    And your photography is beautiful! I seriously want to switch to Nikon after seeing your pictures. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Phew, what a long comment! O_o (<—I finally figured out how to do that emoji! XD ) Loved this post, Clara!

    1. I’m so glad you understand. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Yep, gnats are quite annoying! ๐Ÿ˜›
      Thanks! That’s cool. ๐Ÿ˜€
      EEP! Are you gonna enter any of the pre-release giveaways? My sister won one of them last year!
      Thank you! Yeah, Nikon is great, but I really think that brand is not a big factor- most dSLRs take good quality photos. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      That’s okay! Long comments make me smile. ๐Ÿ™‚ < Me ๐Ÿ˜›

        EEP back! XD I think I just might! I’m REALLY excited for them! ๐Ÿ™‚ And wow, that is really cool!
        You’re welcome! ๐Ÿ˜€ dSLRs are really nice cameras. ๐Ÿ™‚
        Haha, I’m glad! I like long comments, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. You should totally enter! My sister won a copy of Neverseen with a Panakes flower that Shannon Messenger had drawn on the cover. When she showed it to me I screamed…. XD

  3. Awesome post! I may have to check out your place on those writing blogs and maybe participate ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I have heard of gnats. That awkward moment when you freak out about a mosquito and then find out it’s a gnat. (Mosquitos are not only annoying, but carry all kinds of disease, and since I live in an area heavily frequented by immigrants, I’m always irrationally afraid I’ll catch some foriegn disease XD).
    And whaddaya know – I share a room with my sister, and I live on top bunk too! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Goooo random posts! ๐Ÿ˜€ I loved this, Clara!
    Oh my goodness, I especially love that “perfectly fabulous” poster in your room – and your Washi tape diamonds and USA map are also so neat!
    I loooove your fall photography (actually pretty much all your photography ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I especially love #2, #5, and the purple berries. ๐Ÿ™‚ What is that berry plant called? We have one near our library and my Mom and I always love to look at it as we go past. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Your room is adorable! I love the twinkle lights. I also love used book stores, but I have to stay away! LOL! I have way too many books already! Aren’t books the greatest? โค Also, I love your fall pictures. Fall is so beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope school slows down a little for you soon! We've been going crazy with back to school around here too!
