I'm Back!!!

by Grace 22. November 2019 14:31

Hello Everyone!

I've certainly been quiet on my blog lately.

And it's definitely not from a lack of things to say, but a lack of time to say.

I can't promise consistency, but I can promise I'm going to try! I've missed blogging, and sharing my thoughts through my blog have also been a great way for me to express myself, and to sort my thoughts, and I hope it will be helpful for me as I navigate this busy time of life, as well as enjoyable to some extent for my readers. :)

A few things I've been up to lately:

1) A traumatic bike accident. More on that to come in a future post.

2) Work. I'm still working as a paralegal for the Freedom Foundation. Hopefully I can share a little bit about the amazing nonprofit organization that I work for in a future post!

3) Physical therapy. I'll address that more when I post on my injury.

4) Becoming healthier. I'm far from the best person at taking care of myself. In the past I've definitely slacked off - not eating regularly and not always healthily, not getting enough sleep, and not ensuring that my body is getting all of the nutrients it needs. I finally got to the point where I was tired of tolerating not feeling well, and my accident also caused me to reevaluate my lifestyle as far as health goes. So I've been working on some better health habits to get my body back on track.

5) Music. Not near as much as I used to, or wish I did, but I do still spend time in music because I still have a passion for it. I've been listening to lots of songs, evaluating the arrangements (vocal and instrumental), the lyrics (the morality of them and how well they were written) and many other aspects of them and I'm hoping to start a series of song and album reviews sometime very soon (so stay tuned!)

I am hoping to be able to post at least once a week if not more, but we'll see what happens. ;) In the meantime, tell me what you've all been up to! It's been super long since I've heard from you all.

 

Now let's hear from you!

What has been going on in your lives? Are you excited that I'm back? And, because we're getting close to Thanksgiving... What are three things you are thankful about that have happened today?

I'm 19!!!

by Grace 9. February 2019 11:30

Hey everyone!!!

As many of you know, I turned 19 yesterday!!! I had a wonderful day. I actually went to work, but my sweet coworkers signed a card, gave me chocolate, and brought me coffee cake, and I enjoy work, so hey! A day at work isn’t as bad as people make it out to be sometimes. ;)

And then I came home and ate a special dinner of quiche, bacon, and waffles with my family and then we had a southern gospel music fest of sorts out in our front room. What happened there… Stays there. XD

Here’s a few fun facts about what has happened over the past year:

 

Last year at this time I:

1) Was working at the high-school cafeteria

2) Only had my driver’s permit

3) Was a high-school student

4) Shared a bedroom

5) Was working on my paralegal program

6) Was 18!!!

 

Now, I:

1) Work at the Freedom Foundation

2) Not only have my license but have managed to roll and total a car :/

3) Am probably still high-school age… But I’m graduated nonetheless

4) Have my own bedroom for the first time in probably 17 or so years XD

5) Am interning as a paralegal!

6) I’M 19!!!!! WHAT HAPPENED?????

 

If you all have any other questions about things that have changed over the past year, serious or funny, ask me and I’ll answer them in the comments!

Four Quick Things...

by Grace 3. February 2019 23:03

Hey Everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted in a little while... Things have been pretty crazy! I just had a few things I wanted to share with y'all really quick...

1) There's a pretty awesome giveaway going on at Megan's blog A Barefoot Gal. Make sure you check it out!!!

2) One of the many reasons I haven't been posting much for the past few weeks is... I GOT AN INTERNSHIP AS A PARALEGAL!!!!! I'm sooo excited!!! I finished my first week last week and I'm so excited to jump right back into it next week! I'm working for the Freedom Foundation. It's a super great company and if I wasn't as tired as I am right now I'd tell you more about it, but I'll have to save that for a post of its own sometime. ;)

3) I'm entering a southern gospel songwriting contest!!! Here's the link for the contest if you want to see what I'm getting myself into and if any of you are interested in it. ;) Songwriter's Search

4) Be on the lookout for a long-overdue two book giveaway here on Don't You Know that I'm Singing!!!

5) (Since I'm tired right now I can't count) I should post the words to the song this blog is named after sometime... What do y'all think? XD I actually have a full recording of this song somewhere. ;)

 

Now let's hear from you!

Will you sign up for Megan's giveaway? Are you looking forwards to mine? D'ya think I have any chance of winning the songwriting contest? XD What have you all been up to in my absence? I've missed hearing from my readers!!!
