Farewell Fall & Welcome Winter!

Hey marshmallows! If you’re wondering why I’m posting the day after the winter solstice (jk you’re probably not), it’s because yesterday was my 2-year blogaversiary! You can check out the post and an AGSM movie trailer here! Anyways, on to the post!

It’s officially winter, which means it’s time for another seasonal wrap-up! First, we’re going to look at some of the pros + cons about this fall.



cons

  • In September I got a bug bite that got infected, which made me anxious and kind of sick
  • The big surprise got canceled because there was only one person that sent in a photo story that didn’t have to be disqualified, which is REALLY disappointing because we worked super hard on it for half a year. 😭😭 BUT, Natalie & I hope to bring FPC back this summer.
  • We had to switch math teachers in the middle of the year, which was a little confusing, but I feel like with the new teacher I understood the lessons a lot better. And we’re going to have to get ANOTHER math teacher when we get back from winter break so that’ll be crazy.
  • I got sick during Thanksgiving break
  • Otherwise, I had an okay fall!

pros

  • MY BIRTHDAY
  • Halloween!
  • I got a new domain and redesigned American Girl World!
  • The first semester of 5th grade was AWESOME
  • Nutcracker!!!
  • I feel like I’ve really improved in ballet this fall, and I did great on the Christmas/winter recital!
  • I got Paris!
  •  Thanksgiving
  • I had an all-As report card
  • Christmas shopping/prep/traditions
  • SCHOOL 👏 GOT 👏 OUT 👏
  • Lots of filming for Flashback. A Christmas AGSM Movie
  • Fall was pretty good!

I think that besides September, I did pretty well stats-wise this fall!



did i complete my goals?

  • NaNoWriMo! (which I may or may not be participating in. I’m still deciding.)

I finished the planning goal of 114 pages during the first 20 days of NaNo, and then on the last day crammed in 3,000 words so I could reach my goal of 3114 words! It was really hard to complete it, and I had to bring down my goal a few times on the last day, but I have most of the first chapter done!

  • I WILL finish the first draft of my novel!

Ummm…not really. Once again, I hit a block in my novel and wasn’t sure how to continue. I just now picked it up again, and I hope to finish it by the end of 2018!

  • THE BIG SURPRISE (for real this time!!)

Yup, but, it didn’t do as well as I thought it would. (See above cons)

  • I will gain core and foot strength from my pre-pointe classes!

Yeah, I think I’ve really improved!

  • LOTS of Nutcracker prep

We just BARELY made it up on the wheelbarrow (a giant stunt where ten of us hook our legs on to each other wheelbarrow style and have to hold it for two whole eight counts. It’s a lot harder than it sounds!) but Nutcracker went pretty well, and I got to be one of the lead polis!

  • My birthday!!!

You can check out my birthday post here!

  • And, just so I can annoy my future self…

Oh boy. 🤦

  • SO MUCH MORE! 😉 😉

No comment. 😂



so you’ve been rambling about this fall…what happens in winter?

  • Christmas will be totally awesome!
  • 2019 will be the best year yet!
  • Some really cool post videos and posts I’ve got some ideas for!
  • Posts at least once a week, maybe even twice a week!
  • I will post more on and redesign my faith blog, Standing Firm in My Faith!
  • School will get back and I will do great!
  • I will finish my novel before the end of 2018 and then continue Paris Takes the Shot!
  • I will improve at ballet/contemporary/pre-pointe!

That’s it for the post! Thanks for reading, marshmallows!

Falling into a new season.png

Please excuse the bad pun 

Hey, marshmallows!

It seems crazy that it’s already Fall. Can you believe that? School has started, the weather is cooling down (in everywhere except Texas), and the trees are beginning to turn orange and red.

Basically, how my seasonal wrap-up posts work, I list the pros and cons of the past season (in this case, Summer). Then, I’ll share some stats, and conclude with goals for the future and what I got done this summer!

EVENTS

My birthday! I’M GONNA BE TEN IN TEN DAYS. SO I’LL BE TEN ON THE TENTH DAY OF THE TENTH MONTH. *Struts around in all my almost-tweeness* And now all my bios can say “Tween Christian blogger” instead of “nine-year-old Texan and daughter of the One True King” and people won’t say “Oh you’re such a great writer for your age” LIKE SRSLY JUST CUZ YOUR BIO SAYS TWEEN DOES’NT MEAN YOU’RE STILL NOT ONE YEAR OLDER THAN ME and you get to pretend your twelve. *Pouts* *Cheers up because self will be the one depressing nine year olds with “compliments” in ten days*

Lexi’s Birthday! I got Lexi for my 7th birthday so we are twins! *Poses* *Drops Lexi because self is trying to write post* *Knows self should pick her up* *Continues typing*

DOLLAWEEN DUH. This is the first time I will be able to do dollaween with my dolls–I didn’t have this blog at halloween last year! I have most of the costumes done–Izzy will be a princess, Lissie a cowgirl, Alexandra a Forest Nymph, Jade a zombie ballerina, and Maryellen will be a Wizard, and Z will–wait, who’s Z? I only have five dolls! Not 6! Totally not getting another for my birthday! Heh! Heh! Heh… *Runs*

Hope you liked this post! Don’t forget to comment for NTTM #3!

Also, nobody is doing the Old Post Tag? I don’t mean to sound needy but i don’t want it to be the death of a newborn tag. TAG MURDERING IS AGAINST THE LAW PEEPS. If you weren’t nominated, feel free to do this tag!
