Tell-All Tuesday: Home, Belated Blogaversary, and A Request

Hello Dears,
Hope you are all doing well. :) I am taking a break from college life after finishing my last summer class. I am sorry I missed last Thursday I was helping someone move and studying for my final test for class, but I am back in full swing with my blogging schedule and commenting.

So for my break I have gone home, to my childhood home where my parents still live. And as I am watching a movie they said Thomas Wolff said "You can't go home again." But as I am home, I have been thinking about that and I believe that it is both true and false. Yes, their are some people who cant go home due to fire or flood or other disaster, but for the most part in one way or another we can all physically return home. If possible I highly recommend it. It's rather nice to be home and basically go back in time. Plus family time is always nice. For me since I went to college and now have an apartment I haven't been coming home too often. So this is very nice for me.

At the same time, you really can't go home. Even if your at your childhood home, everything is different. Your older, so is your family. So things will be different. You will be treated differently and just in general it will not be the same as it was when you were younger. And home is where the heart is so just because you at your childhood home you may not be where you consider home now. For me I say I have 2 homes, my apartment and my parents home. When I actually get a house I may very well stop calling my parents house home.

What about for you? Where do you call home?

As of August 3rd, my blog is one! Whoo! Right now my blog is not super popular and I don't bring in many comments but I appreciate those of you that have been here since the beginning. I don't really have anything special planned to do for this occasion so I am sorry. But I do have a request.

I would like you lovely people to let me know what I can do better. What would you like me to write about? what would make my blog better?

I'm off to copy family recipes and write! Have a wonderful day dears!

Tell-All Tuesday - Organization

Hello Dears!

Today is supposed to be about me and my life. :) So I think I will talk about organization. It’s been on my mind a lot lately, and as a college student I should probably have some type of it.

My entire life I haven’t been the most organized person in the world. I am trying to fix that now. Do you fine people have any tips or tricks that you use to keep yourself organized?

I recently bought a 9 shelve storage unit, it’s starting to help. Little by little I have been working in my room here in my apartment. I have the top of my dresser finally done, and my floor is mainly clean the only thing that is 100% clean is my desk.

Isn't my computer so pretty? My boyfriend made it for me. Yes, made it. Anyway, my closet is also clean, mainly because I never use it. The rest of my room is a mess. The nine shelves have stuff on them but the nine shelves are not really organized. Papers shoved into them and other random things. I think I just need to lay everything out and catalogue it then arrange it. Hopefully that will help, that is what I did with my closet. In fact I think this inspired me so I shall go organize. (I hope) Hehe!

Also I realized, Recently was my one year Blogaversary. I must think of something to celebrate.

Have a good day dearies!

Overhaul and Schedule

Hello All,

I know I said no more blogging on Fridays, but yesterday was hectic and this will be short, as i have class in a bit. :)

I am going to change the look of my blog a bit today after my class. I think I may keep the jellybeans since there was such a positive response, but I am open to suggestions! So that will be happening today as well as more story boarding which i am also open to suggestions and tips on. :) Also from now on my blogging schedule will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. It will be my old format where Tuesday’s will be tell-all days where it will be more about me, and Thursday's will be more on writing and WIP and stuff like that. Hopefully with a better schedule you guys will be happier and i can attract more readers and attention. :)

Have a wonderful day all!

Good Morning Bloggers!

So I learned to never post on a Friday cause people aren't around. But if you read this go check out the pictures from my dinner :) So what new in everyone's writing?

For me, I recently rewrote an old carnival story of mine and I think I may submit it to Static Movement. Also with that piece i was going to make it into a novel at some point and now with the changes to this piece (which i think i may use as a prologue) I am starting to storyboard. I never used to storyboard, but this is a bigger project so I am going to try it. :) Do you have any suggestions on how to make a story board better or perhaps other options? Well of to work on the story and read some of your wonderful blogs. :)
