What Tech Week Looks Like + SURPRISES and Disappointments

Hey Guys!
I’m really sorry.  I haven’t posted in quite a while, but I was very busy.  For now, let’s catch up on what been happening in this crazy life of mine, starting with tech week.   

August 7th

This was our first day of tech week.  People always complain about it, because the cast doesn’t do much.  Just the crew.  But personally, I enjoy it the most.  Getting to the theatre, finding places for our costumes and filming.  Everything was great.  My favorite part was a little adventure after dinner… 

Almost everyone was still eating, but I wanted to finish early and do my makeup in the dressing room.  After that I decided to join everyone again.  Out on stage I met up with two of my castmates.  Let’s call them Caleb and Blake.  I really wanted to go exploring the building, but not alone so the three of us went together. 
First, we found some random rooms, then one full of lights.  After a little while we went outside.  There were these strange little totem pole type things.  They kind …

Friendship Day + What My Closest Friends Taught Me

How are you?  I still can’t believe it’s August.  I know I haven't been posting often, but I've been very busy.  Guess what?  Tomorrow is National Friendship Day!  I really wanted to do a post about it, but I'm trying to stick to my blog schedule, so I compromised and posted it today.    

My friends have taught me lots of things.  Sometimes I’ve gotten a little bugged with them, and sometimes I’ve tried their patience.  But not matter what, we stick together.  Here are a few things I’ve learned from my three closest friends.

Lolly (because who is a better friend than my sister?)
Stand up for yourself.  Don’t ever let people walk all over you.  If they don’t care about you, then there is no reason to care about them.
You are safe.  God will always protect you. 
You are loved, and there is nothing that can change that.
It’s okay to cry.  Just don’t lose hope. 
Pip, you just need to sleep.  Everything will seem better in the morning.
The best people are the ones who will be a…

The book

Here is the fabulous synopsis that took me forever to find because I don’t have a Goodreads account therefore don’t know how it works.

I am Stronger + Loving Life

Hello, hello!

I must tell the truth, I have no idea where I’m going with this post.I had one written and almost ready to publish in a Word document on my Mom’s computer.Then our Mom went out of town, taking her laptop with her.So here I am, with no idea what to say.

I guess life is always like that.You can plan, prepare, and schedule, but in the end, you don’t know what will happen.Even bad things don’t always end up happening.I need to learn I have no control.Sometimes that’s really scary, but isn’t that what our faith is about?Trusting God to keep us steady when nothing else will?

Over the last few years, my faith has been tested in countless ways.But God always gave me strength to pull through.I can remember crying and crying, I remember the pain and it brings tears to my eyes, but look at me!I am happy, healthy, and loved.No matter what, God was always loving me.And he always will.I have the assurance.

People will let you down, plans will fall through, your last performance will be ca…

I'm Finally Back + Exciting News

Image via Pinterest Hey Everyone!
I seem to have taken a brief (but much needed) blogging hiatus.  I was feeling a little discouraged and uninspired.  This time has helped me to refresh my mind while coming up with tons to talk about in upcoming posts.  And now, even when I finally post again, it's just a short one.  Butone filled with an exciting announcement... 

I checked my number of followers sometime last week.  It was a measly 21.  This was the beginning of my blog burnout.  I was feeling discouraged.  On Saturday I checked my stats, and I had an amazing 90 followers!  It's amazing that people actually want to read my writing.  People all over the place are going to read these words I write.

This afternoon I checked my stats and literally squealed.  I now have a gigantic 222 followers!  I don't know where all of this traffic come from, but I'm not complaining! As a celebration I'm doing a giveaway!  I haven't figured out all of the details yet, so you'll …
