*waves* What’s up, everyone? I haven’t posted in a while! I hope you’ve all had a great February. 🙂
I haven’t done a random post for a pretty long time, so that’s what I’ll be doing today. You can click here to read my past random posts if you’d like. 😀 Let’s get started, shall we?
Random Topic #1: Photography Studio
Here’s a fun fact: We bought a photography studio! 😀 It has soft boxes, umbrella lights, and an enormous backdrop. I’ve had a lot of fun taking pictures in it. Here’s a photo of me with my adorable Pusheen to demonstrate. XD
I’ll try to include some more photos that I’ve taken with it in a future post! I’ve wanted something like this for a while, so it’s pretty exciting. I’m going to take the lighting setup with me next time I go to the animal shelter in an attempt to get better photos. 😀

7) Give your nominees 10 new questions to answer
8) Let your nominees know they’ve been nominated!
1) what’s your absolute favorite post you’ve ever written?
Ahh, that’s hard! I really enjoy writing all of my random posts and I’m rather proud of my more recent short stories, but probably the post that’s been the most fun to create is Egg Adventures. It’s really silly and random and you guys seemed to enjoy it. I might do another post like it sometime.
2) what do you hope to do in the future?
I’m not quite sure how to answer this question, so I’m just going to list some of my top goals for my future. I want to get my driver’s license, finish high school, go to college (and possibly study abroad), visit all 50 US states (I’m halfway there!), travel the world beyond the US, read my entire Bible, become a published author, adopt a shelter dog, continue blogging, grow my photography skills, and meet my online friends.
3) what’s one of your biggest blogging goals at the moment?
To reach 400 followers before the end of the year. I have over 350 at the moment, so I’m pretty confident that I can accomplish this goal. 🙂
4) who is someone you want to meet in your lifetime more than anyone else?
There are so many people I’d love to meet. I would absolutely love to meet my pen pals Megan and Allison, along with all the rest of my blogging friends. I’d also like to meet any of my favorite authors, especially J.K. Rowling and Lemony Snicket. If I could time travel, I’d also love to meet Roald Dahl, C.S. Lewis, and A.A. Milne.
5) what music would you be most likely to blast if you were alone in a car?
Hmm… most likely Where I Wanna Go by NEEDTOBREATHE. It’s a great road trip song – it’s so bouncy and happy. It’s actually unreleased, but you can listen to it on YouTube by clicking here.
6) what’s your favorite quote and who said it?
Oh, wow… I don’t think I can choose a favorite. XD I love pretty much any A.A. Milne quote, and there are countless Bible verses that I love. A few others are “It is up to you to see the beauty of everyday things” (Anonymous), and “The earth has its music for those who will listen.” (Reginald Holmes.)
7) if you could be granted one wish, what would you wish for?
Unlimited wishes. 😀
8) who is your hero?
Jesus. 🙂 He’s the most incredible artist ever. And if you’re talking about people here on earth, then I look up to anyone who goes out of their way to make someone else’s life better.
9) what is your all time favorite book?
I never have a decisive answer to this question. XD Harry Potter is probably my favorite series, but as for one book that’s my favorite, I really can’t choose.
10) are you in any fandoms? if so, which ones?
Yeah, I’m in a lot of fandoms. 😛 Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Pixar, KOTLC, Disney, MBS, etc. I could go on all day. XD
What is your favorite thing to wear?
What are 3 things you’re looking forward to in 2018?
Do you consider yourself to be a good cook?
What is your earliest memory?
What are your top 5 favorite songs?
Do you have any interesting/odd habits?
What is your hidden talent?
What’s the hardest you’ve ever laughed?
Do you prefer winter or summer, and why?
If you could travel back in time to anywhere in any time period, where would you go?
That was a fun award! Thanks again for nominating me, McKenna. 🙂 Your questions were really interesting and creative!
Random Topic #3: Wreck This Journal
I bought a Wreck This Journal a few months ago, and lately I’ve been quite busy wrecking it. It’s so much fun to work on and it’s super relaxing because I don’t have to worry about making it perfect. Some people try to make theirs super artistic and some people completely destroy it – I’m somewhere in the middle, I think. 😀
Here’s what the cover looks like. I glued random small items all over it, and I think it looks pretty cool. 🙂 I’m going to share just a few of the pages that I’ve done below, since I’m saving most of them for a future post.
Here’s the very first page. That’s my little sister’s hand, by the way – she helped me with these photos by holding the book open since it won’t stay open by itself. Aren’t her nails pretty? 😀 (She’s actually hosting a giveaway for an Amazon gift card on her blog right now in celebration of 100 followers. Click here to check it out!)
This page was extremely messy. I loved it. XD
This page was so much fun! I threw a ton of markers at the page, and then dipped various paintbrushes in paint and used those, too. I made a rather large mess. XD
This page took me a super long time, but it was worth it!
This page smells like rose perfume. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek into my Wreck This Journal! Do you have one, and if so, what’s your favorite page you’ve done? Would you be interested in a giveaway for a Wreck This Journal?
Random Topic #4: A Few Book Recommendations
I love when people recommend books to me, so I’m going to recommend a few to you guys. 😀 I’ve read quite a few books within the past year that deserve a lot more attention that they get, and I hope you’ll check them out. You can click on the cover of each one to see it on Goodreads.
Have you read any of these books? They’re all unique and excellent. 😀 Do you have any book suggestions for me? Leave them in the comments below!

Random Topic #9: Spring Photography
I don’t know about you guys, but I am SO ready for summer. Long nights and swimming and fireworks and peaches are coming, and I can’t wait. It started to warm up here a few weeks ago, and I was so excited! Our pear tree has exploded in flowers over the past few days, and I took a few photos to share with y’all. 🙂
Aren’t the flowers pretty? Their petals are all over the yard. 😀
Which of these photos was your favorite? What is the weather like at your house?
