And Here I Ramble

Aloha, peoples.

*comes in sipping coffee* *shakes head*

Coffee and aloha shouldn’t go together, but what can I say? Everything gets mixed up in this head, which basically is the reason I say so many things because there’s like, two people living in me brain, named me and me.

Make sense? Didn’t think so. πŸ˜‚Β Anyway, that has nothing to do with today’s post. Basically, I’m just in here to update you on my life, my mental health, my music…anything that really comes to my mind, because I haven’t done one of these posts in ages, and over half of you didn’t follow my other blog, and I doubt any of you follow my YouTube, so yeah. XD

The past two weeks have been amazingly busy, and even though they contained quite a few spells of depression, and more crying fits than I would like to admit (Yes, I used to say I never cried. The past month has ruined my perfect record, but y’all, I needed to cry, so it’s all good) but those weeks have also brought joy and laughter I haven’t had in months.

First up, I cut off all of my beautiful, lovely hair. *cries because YES I’M A LIAR AND YES I MISS IT DREADFULLY, ESPECIALLY THE PAST FEW DAYS BUT I DID IT SO NO, I’M NOT SORRY*

The pile of my wet hair.

I honestly liked it for a month or so, just because I can roll out of bed and do nothing to my hair, but in the past month, I’ve just missed it. so. very. much. I had to do it, though, because

1. my hair was giving me serious headaches and pain. I was so sick of it.

2. My whole life I’ve wanted to grow my hair out to my waist, I had dreams and plans, it was what little Amie wanted. But NEWS FLASH. I ain’t little Amie no more, and I needed to do it.

3. I was terrified. My hair has always been what I considered “my chief beauty” and I was as vain as Anne Shirley about these locks. So goodbye, they needed to go.

Yes, it was drastic.

Thankfully, for my sake, it’s growing out faster than I expected, so I’m hoping by May it’ll be just past my shoulders.

Another very exciting thing that happened in my life was that I ordered prints of the four books that I’ve completed. It’s so very strange to hold my books in my hands, and just look at them, because like…WHAT? After all those days and nights I labored over them, THEY’RE IN MY HANDS. *mind blown*

Of course, they aren’t published, but Lord Willing, someday they will be, and I’ll be screaming. XD

*is tempted to go work on them, but forces myself to finish this post*

My siblings were absolutely thrilled to be able to read all four of the books, and each one has their favorite. XD My older brother loved my Historical Fiction, “I Must Write” and has plans for me to write an entire Historical Fiction series. (Not that I’m against that. XD)

Rose likes “Across the Border”, which is a Dystopian, and I don’t remember Jay and Little Sis’ favorite books. XD

We entered things into the County fair again! *grins* And I won all firstΒ I forgot that I won a second place with one of my pictures. XD So I got four first place ribbons, and a second place. Yes, I’m just a bit proud. XD

I entered my Abraham Lincoln portrait, three pictures in the three different categories, and a poem. πŸ™‚

I’ve been doing a lot more art, finding that painting/drawing calms me when I’m upset/stressed. Destressers are very important folks, or you’ll resort to medicine or unhealthy habits. I just finished a painting, and I have one half finished, and I’m planning another secret painting project. 😏

Thanksgiving was very different than our usual Thanksgiving, and I would be lying if I said I had a good day, but I survived, and by the time dinner rolled around, it was better. *nods* Thanksgiving is a hard day for many reasons, and yeah. *shakes head* I missed me friends. *wipes away tear as I look at the pictures from last year* My, how we’ve grown.

This year we sang at the Nursing Home, and put up a Christmas tree at the Hospital, and just spent time at home. *smiles* But I missed those three girls so much, and hopefully next year, Thanksgiving will be spent with them. ❀

The day after Thanksgiving, I started Vlogmas. And what, pray tell, is vlogmas? Well, me friends, it is where you vlog everyday until Christmas, and I’ve only missed two days, so please, go check out my YouTube here, and comment/watch my videos. πŸ˜€ #shamelessselfpromo

Also, for my siblings Christmas presents, I’ve been taking them on experience type gifts, and so you shall see pictures from these events when I do a photography dump, sooner than later. XD

AND NOW FOR THE MOST EXCITING NEWS OF ALL. *cue squealing and running around in circles, and trying not to die from cuteness*

No, I didn’t get a new pet. πŸ˜‚

I’M AN AUNT. My older sister had her baby, and Little K is DE SWEETEST little thing ever. 😍 I might think she’s the best thing that happened in 2019, but then again…she’s the most exciting RECENT thing. But babies are better than ‘most everything, so I’m probably safe in saying it. XD

And that’s caught you up to me at the moment. I’m so excited to be an aunt, I’m looking forward to my hair growing out, and celebrating Christmas, and guys. THREE WEEKS UNTIL 2020.

I leave you with that momentous thought.

    1. I’m glad, too. It felt terrible to cry, considering I couldn’t breathe, but afterwards I felt very free.
      I’M AN AUNT, HOW AM I AN AUNT?! She is cute. Very cute and I’m so proud.
      I don’t know where time went. *looks under my bed for it*

  2. β€œThere’s like, two people living in me brain, named me and me.” THAT IS LITERALLY THE WAY I THINK. πŸ˜‚ Rebel me and just me, and we argue.
    I got my hair cut really shortβ€”like, shorter than thatβ€”when I was about eight and it was not as fun as I expected and I may never, ever do that again.
    DO I SEE OPERATION GREEN SERPENT!!!! I think I have a favorite too!! πŸ‘ That’s so fun that you got them all printedβ€”I had all but one of my very early novels printed and it was so encouraging. πŸ€—
    I cannot believe that Abraham Lincoln portrait is your drawingβ€”that’s incredible! I had to do a double-take when I realized that you’d drawn it.
    AND YOUR NIECE, oh my heart!! πŸ’• I want to cuddle her! She is just so cute!!

  3. I love your haircut! I did something similar; I grew mine out until the summer after I graduated from college and then cut it super short. That was…about 2.5 years ago? I don’t remember exactly how long it took until it was past my shoulders again, but it wasn’t too long. And congrats on all the other things: books and niece and vlogging and art & etc! But don’t tell me there are only 3 weeks left of 2019…I still have too many things to do and read before the end of the year πŸ˜…

  4. WAIT YOU CUT YOUR HAIR? Now we match! πŸ˜€ Hee hee, I totally get you with the terrible feeling of WHAT DID I JUST DO, but I personally think the new haircut looks cute on you. πŸ™‚ Also EEEP, WHAT? You’re an aunt? O.o My goodness that’s weirdly wonderful. I’m sorry Thanksgiving wasn’t all you had hoped. 😦 Here’s hoping Christmas will be better!
