musings about june & plans for july

hii darlings, i hope that you all have been doing well <33. i cannot, absolutely cannot believe that june simply went by in a *poof*. it’s insane. i don’t know what else to write for this introduction haha, so i guess just,,, enjoy this post? and go check my book blog, stars and stories, for a bookish wrap up of my month? it will be there about ten minutes after writing this post. so,, yeah. enjoy <3.

this month was,, a rollercoaster to say the least. i had days where i was really excited and hyped up over nothing, days where i was such an anxious mess, and days where i felt really messed up. the high school that i got into gave really intense summer assignments, and i haven’t gotten much of a summer vacation. i felt super creative and yet super burned out at the same time most days. i watched a lot of disney channel, because sometimes that’s the only non triggering thing out there. i fell out of my quiet time with God, and really struggled to get back into it. i didn’t post a lot, only because finding motivation was hard. i found quite a few songs that made me emotional. something really scary happened in my neighborhood that definitely terrified me, even though nobody was ever in danger during it. i cannot say what it was though, because it could potentially give away my location. 

on a more positive note, i did have some wins this month. for one, i found a few new hyper-fixations, tv show wise. notable shows i watched include phil of the future, once upon a time, jonas LA, and good luck charlie. i also read some lovely books, which i will be discussing in my monthly wrap up for my other blog. i wrote my first book review that wasn’t for school, you can read it here. i got camp nanowrimo all prepped (i’m writing a romance about rival pumpkin patches, am finishing up my fantasy novel, and attempting at writing flash fiction, using these prompts). i began going to a support group for girls with autism and ADD. that went really well, and although all the girls (there are three of them) are sixteen or seventeen, i don’t feel that much younger. i’ve finally found a place where i don’t feel like i’m being silently judged, so that’s lovely.

lately, God has really been putting this message on my heart: when you arrive in heaven, are you going to hear a well done my good and faithful servant, or a depart for i never knew you? i’ve been thinking a lot about my actions and their ramifications, along with this: woe to those who call good evil and evil good. both of these are things that i really think that God has been placing on my heart.
