Life is GOOD!

Okay. Okay. Okay. I’m super excited. Yes, I’m writing this at almost midnight. Yes, I have school and need to wake up at 6 AM tomorrow. But do I care? No. You know why? Because life is GOOD!

What’s up with that? You might ask. Well, I’ll tell you.

I’m very close to choosing a cover for my first book. I think I know which one I’m going to choose, but if you’d like to vote for which one you think I should choose, go ahead and vote here.

I’ve also figured out my new-found attraction to my co-worker. We both like each other. I suppose we’ll see where this goes. As for right now, he treats me super well, and I’m beyond happy.

Apparently, he and I went to the same elementary school at the same time and we didn’t even realize it, which is absolutely crazy.

I’m so close to achieving my dreams, I can practically taste it. It’s so exciting!

Anyway, I need to go to bed. So goodnight, and I hope you guys are just as happy as I am!

Have a great week!

Sally

Packing is a Lot of Work

Hi . . . wow, I’m tired. I’m definitely not writing this in school. Nope. Not me. I wouldn’t do that.

Today I’m skipping the last half of school because my family is going on vacation. We’re going to go zip lining, horseback riding, swimming, and hiking. (Two out of the four we could do at home anyway . . .) Anyway, I’m almost excited, but I’m also really worried. The last time I rode a horse it bolted and I fell off.

Speaking of which, when I told my older brother that story he was actually super worried. See, I blacked out before I hit the ground and woke up afterward with no memory of hitting the ground, and he suddenly became super paranoid because apparently that could cause brain damage. Or something. I don’t know, I don’t really listen to my brother.

Did I mention I’m super tired? Yesterday my coworker called me at ten o clock and we ended up talking for two hours. He’s literally the second coworker that’s happened with, and it makes me wonder what about me makes people want to talk to me. Especially when I hate phone calls with a burning passion.

Speaking of phone calls. I’m trying to get a new job, but I need to call in to see if they will hire me. But, like I said earlier, I hate phone calls. So . . . wish me luck.

Fun story. I broke up with my boyfriend a little over a week ago. My “best” (In quotes because who in their right mind would do this to their best friend.) began to hint that he likes me again yesterday. I say hint, but he might as well have outright told me. He said he liked this girl he hadn’t told me about and she was his really good friend and she had just barely broken up with her boyfriend. Seeing as he’s literally told me all of the girls he’s liked, his refusal to tell me her name means it’s definitely me.

Do you see the problem? This summer I lost a whole lot of friends, and I just barely broke up with my boyfriend, and he is trying to tell me this now? I’ve even rejected him in the past when he liked me the first time! I just—why would he force me to reject him after such a traumatic experience?

Ugh. I’m really annoyed, if you can’t tell. He expected me to just get over the guy I’ve been in love with for five years in less than two weeks. Yeah, like that’s going to happen.

The other friends I have have really stepped up, however. One of my peers in school, when she found out about the breakup, took me out to dinner so I could vent to her about it. It was a lot of fun, and she chose an excellent restaurant. She even paid for me. I am so grateful. It meant a lot to me.

So, sorry about that rant. That’s probably not what you signed up for when you clicked here.

I just realized I haven’t explained the title yet. We’re literally leaving today and I’m still not even close to being done packing. It’s really awkward. Well, no. It just means I’m lazy.

Anyway, that’s all. Thanks for listening!

Have a good day!

Sally

So Much Drama

Remember that one time I said my boyfriend and I might break up, but we didn’t? Well, this time it actually happened, for real. Yesterday, my boyfriend and I broke up. I’m not going to get into any details, but considering the fact that we’ve been friends for five years before this, it kind of feels like a waste. Honestly, the only reason it’s upsetting is because for so many years I thought it would work, but then it didn’t. History was kind of the only thing keeping up together in the first place,, actually.

Whatever, I’m sure you don’t want to hear about that. School is in full swing, surprisingly. A lot of my friends guessed that we’d be canceled by now. I’m grateful we haven’t been, because school keeps me busy.

One of my favorite classes is my internship, because I get to intern for my mom. Essentially, that means I get to come home and work on my writing for two hours. It’s pretty amazing.

My car broke down again as I was driving to school, so I’m back to driving my dad’s car. That car has given me so much more trouble than it’s worth.

Okay so, this is unrelated, but my friend group went through a purge recently. I lost everyone that wasn’t very close to me or had any sort of tension with me. It’s not that I purposefully cut them out or anything, it was more like all of us just agreed we didn’t want to be friends anymore. So now my friend group is much smaller, but we’re also a lot closer. I think having close friends is a good thing, because you definitely need some people you can always look to for advice.

Personally, I’d take a few good friends over a lot of distant friends any day.

Well guys, I don’t have any updates on the writing front, but I have stopped receiving spam comments. I’m not sure if my newest round of filtering worked, or if every spam account out there just suddenly decided to stop commenting. Either way, I’m happy about it.

Now, I wish there was a “select all” button so I could delete every comment in my spam folder. Sadly, there isn’t.

That’s all for me today!

Happy reading,

Sally

School . . . Again

Actually, it’s my last year of school! (I think.) I’m not really sure how to feel about it. On the one hand, I get to actually be with people again, and I’ll have something to do with my time.

On the other hand, I’ve always hated school with a passion, and it’s gonna be weird with all the new policies in place.

But then again, I might miss school once I’m out.

Whether I like it or not, I’m going back. Tomorrow. Sigh.

If you were wondering, I’m going back in person, not online.

Everything is changing for me. School’s starting, my best friend and I aren’t best friends anymore, and something weird is going on with my romantic relationship. Yeah, that was an awkward way to phrase it, but I’m too lazy to do anything about it. I honestly have no idea what’s going on, but I’m not too happy about it.

Oh, guys. I dropped my phone into the toilet this week. It’s fine, but it really scared me. If you want the full story, go to my YouTube and find the video I posted there about it. Honestly, I can’t believe I did that.

GUYS! I think my book is finally ready for editing. I mean, it’s been going through the editing process for a while, but I think I’m finally done re-writing it. I think I finally ironed out all the weird plot points. Now, we need a cover, an editor to go through it for errors, and . . . publish it! I can’t tell you how excited I am.

I know this is weird for an author to say, but . . . rock on!

Sally

Did I Mention?

Did I mention, that I’m in love with you, and did I mention, there’s nothing I can do. And did I happen to say, I dream of you everyday . . . No? No songs? Okay, fine.

Aside from quoting obscure songs I doubt any of you know about, this post might actually be going somewhere. Maybe.

I’m not on time, but I’m here anyway, because I like to procrastinate other more important things I need to do. Like actually writing.

Anyway, there is a lot to unpack here. The title is referring to my YouTube channel. I can’t remember if I told you guys about it, but I post daily on YouTube. I’m starting to put out new content (not TikToks) for you guys, so I hope you go over and check it out.

For the spam situation, there were three hundred comments when I opened the website. I deleted sixty of them. There’s no way I’m going through the rest of them any time soon. Gosh, just stop spamming me already. It’s so annoying.

Yesterday something interesting happened. Well, a lot of interesting things happened. The first thing is that my co-worker asked me to hang out outside of work, which I wanted to, but I needed him to understand that I have a boyfriend first. I’m afraid I went about it in a very weird way, and I’d be shocked if he ever talked to me again.

That’s me, the queen of awkward. And apparently I’m super good at making people not like me.

Can you sense bitterness? I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m not bitter. No way.

Also, my best friend of the past four years and I decided we weren’t friends anymore. So there’s that. Honestly, I think I’m fine. A little sad, but fine.

Time heals all wounds. When wounds heal, they scar. Scar is armor, to protect you from getting hurt again.

Man, that was dark. I’m not lying to you though, I am fine. Off-kilter, but fine.

I don’t know why I’m trying to convince you. I’ll bet you just believed me at first, but now that I’ve insisted on it you’re worried, but only because I was pushing it too hard.

Anyway, I might quit my job. I was supposed to hang out with one of my friends on Saturday, but my co-worker didn’t show up to his shift, so I had to stay late for three hours until someone else could come in for him. My friend ended up coming to my work and hanging out with me there, which was a lot of fun, but I still would’ve rather it didn’t happen at all.

As far as I know, this co-worker is facing no consequences for his actions. I’m really annoyed, but I don’t know where else I could get a job at. It’s quite a pickle.

Hey! If you want to hear more funny work stories like that time my co-worker answered a drive-through in a terrible German accent, or any of these other stories I’ve hinted at but haven’t explained in detail, go to my YouTube! Work stories are coming!

Well, I suppose it’s time to get to work and start writing. I hope you guys all have a wonderful day.

Your friend,

Sally

Am I Actually on Time?

Wow, it’s actually Friday today, which means I really am on time.

Look. School starts soon. (Maybe, it might get pushed back.) I plan on going in person, which means I have to start working night shifts at my job. Which–ugh. Okay, yeah, I hate it. Working in the mornings was much more fun, and I miss it. But whatever. Money is money. Except I’m getting scheduled way less because we actually have enough people working there now. Sigh.

That’s a weird thing to complain about.

I started posting YouTube videos everyday. Right now, they’re my leftover TikToks, but eventually they’ll become new videos I’ve filmed. I’m currently trying to get the hang of filming in a different format than I’m used to. I think I’m starting to get there.

Guys, I’m actually so happy right now. Life is good, really good. Yeah, there are some really sucky things going on, but I’ve been able to focus on the good things more, and that’s helped my mood a lot. I’ve been able to hang out with my friends, get more used to being in a relationship, and start working toward my goals.

Oh, speaking of goals. After giving my book to some beta readers, I finally figured out why the first part feels so off. I’m going to fix it sometime this week, then I’ll edit it again, send it to some editors, and we should be way close to publishing it. Gosh, I’m so excited.

Anyway, if you want to see funny videos from me, go subscribe to my YouTube!

And please. Stop leaving spam comments. There’s 259 of them right now, and I’m just too lazy to go through and look at them all. Does anyone have any ideas of how to stop them from coming in? If so, email me, because if you comment it, I will never see it.

Stay Positive!

Sally

It Was My Birthday!

It happened last Saturday, July 18th. Yeah, I know, I’m late. That’s nothing new, and I’ll bet you it will happen again.

So, what have I been doing? Partying it up, obviously. My birthday was a huge success, and I had so much fun hanging out with my friends. Yeah, I’m getting old, but I consider that a good thing.

My book is no closer to being published. Sorry guys, I’ve switched my focus from that to getting myself a car that will actually work. As soon as I have that, I’ll get back to getting my book published. In the mean-time, we’ll both just have to wait.

The amount of spam comments on my blog is so overwhelming I gave up trying to go through them all. If you are an actual person, email me and I’ll make sure your comment gets approved. It’s honestly ridiculous how many comments there are, even after I added filters and everything.

I think everyone here knows how much I loved TikTok. Unfortunately, I had to delete it, for ressons I explained on my last video there. My account itself hasn’t been deleted, so if you want to check it out, you still can. I won’t be removing the link from my website.

But, when one door closes, another one opens. I’ve decided to upload all of my TikToks onto Youtube. It’ll take a while, but eventually they’ll all be up there. If it gets enough traction, I’ll start making content on there too.

And you thought I was just an author.

That’s all from me this week! I hope you guys had a great week, and will continue to do so.

Keep on keeping on!

Sally

Vacation!

Hi there! I’m writing this as my family drives to a different state to visit my cousin, who’s getting married.

Isn’t it funny that sometimes families become to close they just regard each other as relatives even though they actually aren’t? That’s what happened between my family and my cousin’s family. We aren’t actually related, but we all grew up together, so it’s all the same.

So, a lot has happened since I last wrote. I . . . got a boyfriend? It’s kind of insane, but it did happen.

I’m also slowly but surely turning more emo by the day. I, before yesterday, had never purposefully drawn on myself, but yesterday I recreated my favorite art piece on my hand. It’s just in pen, so it will wash off, but I really like it.

I wrote words that describe who I am, good at bad, and tried to make them look cool on my hand. It turned out a lot better than I expected, and it was super easy.

I’m super excited to hang out with my family this weekend. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. As long as I can survive this six hour drive.

I hope you guys have a good week!

Best,

Sally

It’s Late

I don’t even remember when I last came here to write a post. It’s been a really long time. During that entire period I also haven’t written a single word for my book, or done even the tiniest thing to forward my career. I know, I know, I really need to get on it.

So, I did. It’s really late for me right now, but I decided to ease myself back into the work zone. I wrote out a cover design for my first book to start with. It went pretty well, and I think I covered everything. That’s probably all I’m going to do today because I’m tired. But I promise myself and you that I will get back into the groove so I can release my first book ASAP!

I can’t remember if I told you guys I got a job, but I did almost a month ago. If you want to hear funny stories about my job, head on over to my TikTok account and look at my recent videos. (Just scroll down to the bottom, on the left there are buttons linking to my social media.)

Yes, I know, I shamelessly plug all the time. Not like anyone reads these anyway. I get a bunch of spam comments on my blog, but hardly any of them are real people who actually read my post. Maybe I should shamelessly plug my blog on my other platforms . . . It’s something to think about.

My computer keeps making different keys stick as I type, which is really annoying. I’m a very fast typer, but when keys stick, it slows me down so much. Agh!

I went on a date. I don’t really have much to say on that regard because I don’t feel comfortable talking about my love life on the internet, but I did want to tell you it happened. Maybe I’ll become a functional human being in social situations yet.

Or maybe not. This is why I write instead of talk to people.

Anyway, I hope you guys have a great day or night or afternoon or whatever time of day it is for you when you read this!

Oh, one last thing. If you ever are bored and want to talk to someone . . . email me! I check my email constantly, and I promise I’ll respond super quickly. I may not be good at face-to-face social interactions, but I’m good at writing things out.

Keep being awesome!

Sally

P.S. I’m too lazy to spell check this post, so I’m sorry for any errors.

I Might Have Overreacted . . .

I haven’t posted for almost two weeks, and I apologize for that. So much has happened, it’s insane! So, let’s get right into it.

First off, I got a job. It’s fast food, unfortunately, and a lot of hard work, but it actually has been a blessing. Because of it, I actually have something to do with my time. I do have to wear a mask, however, and that’s a little annoying. I haven’t suffocated yet, and hopefully I won’t.

Second of all, my mother sent my book to some of her beta readers, which I am super grateful for. I can’t wait until the feedback comes back. I hope it’s all positive! As for the second book . . . it’s, um, happening. It’s being really difficult. It’s almost like it doesn’t want me to write it. I’ll get through it, I promise.

I got an instagram! Which reminds me, I need to update my contact information. We’ll see if I can remember how to do it . . .

I went to a park yesterday with my friend and climbed a tree! I was super happy because I’ve never climbed a tree before. Yes, I know, I’m lame. But I took a bunch of really great pictures, so now I have a bunch of good photos to use as profile pictures.

Remember how I was super upset last time I wrote a post? Well, I think I overreacted. Everything is fine now, and hopefully things will get even better as my state comes completely out of quarantine.

Wish me luck with work and writing! Read on, my friends.

Warmest Regards,

Sally
