Hey guys! Jacob and I celebrated our one year YouTube anniversary on January 17. To celebrate we made a little video just thanking everyone for their great support over the past year. We absolutely loved making videos and we will continue to do so (hopefully for a long time!) To support us, pleaseclick here to subscribe.
Even just reading this blog’s title makes me feel happy inside. This is the moment I’ve been counting down the days until (literally) ever since I was fifteen with my friends. Seriously. We were like twenty year olds being forced into high school. We didn’t belong. We felt so different, felt more mature than everyone else, like we were all just ready to move on to the next chapter of our lives. Well, we made it, ladies!
My first year of high school, I absolutely loved it. Like, abnormally loved it. Everyone thought I was so weird. So did I, considering I hated school. But grade nine was different. Then hits grade ten, and my personality did like a total shift within two weeks and suddenly, bam, new person, more mature, and just ready to leave. I hated it so much that half the day I was schooled from home (online courses) and I loved that. It made me feel like I was in college, being able to leave during the day and making my own hours. It rocked. That was in grade eleven. Come grade twelve, I felt like I already left high school years ago. I think if I was to suffer with all those teens during school for six hours a day, I would’ve probably formed a flash mob at the graduation from being so happy. But it was just kinda like, “Meh. Mentally I was out of high school when I was fifteen, physically for half days when I was sixteen and seventeen, and now fully out. Yay.” Don’t get me wrong, I am so happy. NO MORE HIGH SCHOOL. FOREVER. It feels like just yesterday I went up to my friend Jimela (by the way, you never let did “Meh meh meh Neptune” like promised Jimela!) and we would just pretty much cry to each other, “Only eight hundred and thirty two days to go!” It’s kinda almost surreal that it’s actually done. I’m very happy writing this right now.
Another plus side is, no more waking up really early for high school anymore! You guys have no idea how many times I did this in the morning, face and all:
Also, I feel like I looked better for grad than I did for prom. Make up or what, I don’t know. What do you think?
Well loves, it’s time for me to go beddy-bye. But thanks for taking the time to read. Now I have blue skies ahead of me. Summertime is going to absolutely rock and so is next year! No high school! 😀 I shall miss my friends dearly but with today’s technology, I think we will be just fine. Also, I just gotta ask: how far are you in your education?
This is a little late, but I just wanted to touch on the importance of mother’s day and how special I think it is. Your mother is the person who brought you into this world. A mother’s relationship with her children will always be the strongest bond. Unfortunately my mom worked this weekend, so next weekend we’re going out to dinner. For Mother’s Day I made her a card from the heart and got her a bouquet of beautiful flowers. A simple gesture with a lot of thought is the best gift a mother can ask for. What did you guys do for Mother’s Day? xoxo
I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas! It came and left so early, it always seems. I had a fun time and the gifts were a bit overwhelming (which is an extremely good thing!) The next big event is New Year’s Eve, of course. Then after that, it’s the new year! What are your resolutions this year, if any? I always make a list with ten resolutions and check them off as they come true. This year, I think I got 6/10. Not too shabby! I’m also excited for 2015 because I’m going to start blogging like crazy. Already have a line up with reviews (books, beauty, random items, etc) and other cool stuff. I also want to start connecting with some other bloggers! You can never have too many blog buddies. 🙂 I’m taking a different route now with Mackenzie High. This is also the year that I go crazy with the publication process. Fingers crossed! Wish me luck! And for the writers/readers out there, you know how annoying writer’s block can be. So any suggestions for blog topics would be great! As we close off the Christmas season and welcome in the new year, we step into a clean state and can really make the upcoming year the best one yet! Always stay positive. ❤ — Victoria
Listed above are only several of the things I love the most about the fall season. And there’s school, of course, although that may not be as cheerful for some. I hope you’re all doing great in whatever it is that you are pursing right now, whether that be high school, college, university, or in the workplace. Good luck everyone! 🙂
I’m praying that the warmth of the summer lasts a bit longer. We’ve had such a cold winter that I’m definitely not going to rush anything. I’d take the heat over coldness any day, but there’s just so many perks to the colder seasons! I LOVE Halloween, fall/winter clothes (too much, actually), hot chocolate, etc. But let’s hope that summer lasts at least another three weeks or so. I can wait.
