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

I’m Sick of It

Before we get to what I’m sick of, I just have to say that I don’t remember anything that happened this week other than it sucked pretty bad and I don’t want to go through it again.

So, I believe I told you guys about that guy that I liked, and that said he liked me . . . well, some drama happened, and at this point I don’t know where we’re gonna end up. My pessimistic self believes I probably won’t talk to him anymore after this week. But I guess we’ll see.

The area where I live is starting to open up again with a bunch of restrictions, which is exciting. Maybe soon I won’t have to spend everyday alone with my thoughts. I haven’t read as many books as I really should have.

I’m working on writing the next book in my series while my mom re-reads the first one. I’m so ready for this process to be done. I want to be a full-time author so badly.

We had a very strange freak storm this week. I can’t remember what day it was because all of the days kind of bleed together, but it was insane and really violent. Some of my friends said their houses actually shook when the lighting stuck. It was really short, however, blowing over in about thirty minutes and leaving a brilliant blue sky and shining sun in its wake. It was really weird.

I hope you guys are doing well and that this week wasn’t as bad for you as it was for me. Wish me good luck!

Best regards,

Sally

What Day is it?

I’ve lost all track of time. Days are the same, nights are just darkness, and life just blends together and doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.

Was that dramatic enough for you?

Seriously, though, I’m not entirely sure how I missed when I was supposed to post last Saturday. It totally slipped my mind.

My family finally got Disney+, and I am so darn excited to watch Disney shows to my heart’s content. My school also decided to end early on May 12th, which I’m super grateful for, because, as I’ve said before, I really don’t like school.

My sister is less than a month away from giving birth! I’m so excited!

I finished yet another read-through of my first book. I’m not entirely sure what to do next, but I certainly hope it will be out soon! I haven’t done anything with the cover design just yet, but I will.

Yeah, other than that, not much has happened. Oh, we did open our pool on Saturday, which is rather exciting. Other than that, it’s been as boring as boring could be.

Comment below what kind of stuff you’ve been doing to keep busy during quarantine! I want to hear it.

Your friend,

Sally

Productivity at its Finest

I was actually really productive this week. My school started back up again, and I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again: online school is so much better than real school. At least right now.

I finally started really thinking about covers for my first book. I’m about halfway through with reading it again (for like, the thousandth time, I swear), and I think now is a good time to start making the cover. Today I spent like, two hours searching through potential pictures. It’s a little tiring. My mom is an author who makes all of her covers by herself, so she’s going to help me learn how to do it. I’m really excited!

Honestly, the day when this book finally does come out I might pass out from happiness. I’ve worked so dang hard my whole life so this dream could come true. I cannot wait to share my creativity with you guys. (I hope you’ll like it, anyway.)

I’m going to apply for a job somewhere. Online, of course. My mother’s been pushing for me to get one, and, with no school, I really do have a lot of time on my hands. I have been using that time wisely, but it could be used more wisely. You know, so I can gain money. So I can buy a new phone. Today I was on my phone for about an hour and it almost died on me. It’s really annoying.

Shameless plugging time! Follow me on TikTok or Facebook! And keep spamming my comment section on this blog! They make me laugh really hard. I do try to reply to the ones I think are actually genuine. But I’m pretty sure most of them are spam.

I love you guys! Try to stay productive!

Rock on,

Sally

I Dug a Hole

That sure is a very random way to start a blog post! But it’s true. Yesterday I helped my dad out in the garden, and I dug a hole for a wooden pole. It was twenty three inches deep, and we filled it up with concrete to make sure the pole would stay. Then my dad told me that we might actually have to take it out. No words, only a pained sigh.

One of my posts has gotten a lot of comments on it. I look through them all, but I’m not sure whether I should reply or not. Most of them appear to be spam that have absolutely nothing to do with what I wrote about. I must say it’s rather funny to laugh about them, because generally the spam comments don’t make any sense. But I have been getting what I think are genuine comments, and I really appreciate them. You guys are the best!

Yesterday my mom and I went to the store. This is the first time in a whole month that I’ve been in a public place. It was really strange, actually. I had heard about how fearful people are of the coronavirus, but I hadn’t actually seen it until then. I was afraid to cough or even breathe for fear of giving them all panic attacks. I did breathe, obviously, but I didn’t cough. My persistent cough has almost completely run its course, which I am so glad about.

Then, yesterday night, my family and I went out to the hot tub. We basked in the warmth of the heated chlorine water, enjoying the fact that our backyard is not only huge, but it also has a pool. We’re very lucky. Spring has finally hit where I live, and my mom thinks we are going to open the pool next week. I’m excited.

Tomorrow is Easter. It feels super strange to me. In other years, I would be at my cousin’s house right now, hunting for eggs and eating delicious food. Instead, my family is having a small party at our house tomorrow, and no cousins will be present. I think it will be fun, but it just doesn’t feel like Easter. I’m shocked that it wasn’t canceled or something. (That’s a joke.)

Hey, look! I’m actually on time this week! I’m impressed with myself. Also, my school is on spring break this week, so I didn’t have to do any school work, which I was really happy with. Have I ever mentioned that I strongly dislike school?

Anyway, let’s hope this worldwide fear will be over soon so we can go back to our normal lives. Have a great Easter!

Your friend,

Sally

Nothing is Different

I forgot to post on Saturday again! Oh well, I guess I’m doing it on Mondays now. Who knows how long that’ll last.

Nothing much has changed. Everyday is pretty much the same for me. I wake up, do school, write, clean, play some games with my friends, then go to sleep. Every. Single. Day.

On the bright side, I finished the edits my mom gave me for my book! Now I just need to read through it maybe twice to make sure everything is flowing together. Then I’ll probably have to give it back to my mother so she can do another read-through. But I’m almost there!

Today is my best friend’s birthday. I spent hours this morning working on a couple of surprises for her. I feel really sad for her, because she can’t celebrate with other people on her birthday due to the coronavirus.

It’s spring break for me right now, so I don’t have to do homework. I’m not sure what else to do with my time, but I think I’ll figure it out. Speaking of which, do any of you guys have good book suggestions for me? I need some new books to keep me entertained.

Thanks,

Sally

I Might Be Insane

I’m an introvert. But this quarantine has been killing me. I’ve lost all drive to do much of anything. On top of all that, I’m still coughing a bunch, but I’m pretty sure I’m not sick. But still, no one wants to be around me when I’m coughing. My sister’s baby shower was on Saturday, and I couldn’t go because of it.

Speaking of which, I forgot to write a post on Saturday. I decided to do it today because I am currently bored out of my skull. Today felt better than most other days though. I actually wrote today.

To be honest, all I want to do is hang out with that guy I told you about two posts ago. The one that I like. Isn’t it funny how my timing is so horrible? I tell him I like him immediately before everything shuts down because of the coronavirus. I must have the worst luck in the world.

Online school is better than real school, however. I really don’t like going to school, and doing online school has actually been a lot easier for me. That’s honestly a huge relief.

Well, I have a headache, and I’m not sure what I’m going to do for the rest of the day. But I think everyone feels the same way, so I’m not going to complain. I’m just glad I’m an introvert who doesn’t need as much human interaction as my extrovert friends do. I’m sorry to all of you extroverts out there.

Stay healthy and happy,

Sally

Pretty Much Quarantined

Hello everyone! Welcome to Saturday! Yesterday I said, “It’s Friday! Happy Friday!” to one of my friends. She responded with, “Well, yeah, but no one cares because every day is the same now.” Way to totally bring down my mood, Alex. But it is true. Each day is the same as the last. What are you guys doing to keep yourselves sane? I know this has been hard for some people, but I don’t actually mind it all that much.

Online school has been a bit strange. I told Alex this concerning online school, “If you think about it, now school just happens everyday, and we don’t have a break.” She was mad at me after that. For me, it’s been super easy. Are any of you doing online school right now? How are you faring?

So, where I live we aren’t actually quarantined yet, but we’ve been encouraged to keep our gatherings to less than ten people, and most everything has shut down. It was actually made a law for a short time, but the health department made the decision without counsulting the govenor, and he repealed it immediately. On Thursday I had three of my friends over for a pizza party. My sister and her daughter also came to visit, so we had exactly ten people for a little bit. It was almost funny.

I’ve been playing a lot of minecraft with my friends. TikTok has helped distract me. I spent hours today reading. I finished that book, and it was so good. But . . . I woke up with a cough today. No other words for that.

I hope this is over soon, but at the same time I don’t want it to end, because I’m actually enjoying myself. But I’ll probably get tired of it soon. Maybe. I am so introverted I might never get sick of it. Who knows?

I hope you guys are doing good and have all the things that you need. Read lots of books, stay healthy, exercise, and have fun! I’ll see you next week.

Warmest regards,

Sally
