Wednesday Update

Hello!

I’m aware I’m always apologizing for my absence, but January has been absolutely hectic.  I have been sick and studying for the end of semester exams, but will have a video uploaded very soon!  I hope you all are doing well and surviving the weather (depending on where you live.  If you’re in Australia right now, oh, how I envy you).  For now, I leave you with a video that had my cheeks in pain from laughter…

 

Have a good one!

Hang in there!

Oh my goodness I am ridiculous and never post on here anymore.  I’m sorry.  BUT, good news: I FINALLY filmed my first video and will be uploading this weekend.  NO EXCUSES this time.  I simply have to create my channel and things like that, but the video itself is finished.  I will be (surprisingly) posting weekly once my channel is up, which seems like a major contrast from this blog.  To be completely honest, I have lost a little bit of interest from it, and have been incredibly busy.  This school year has been amazing for me so far, and I am very content with offline happenings.  I hope you understand that I am doing my best to get this video up and WILL (super duper pinky swear) have it uploaded soon.

In other news, I’ve been writing A TON of my own personal stories, and that’s where most of my little tiny typing fingers have been exhausted.  I am enjoying experimenting with new writing of sorts, and my videos will be my new way to communicate with the world!  I am planning on keeping this blog because we will see what happens in the future; maybe I’ll end up back to where I started.

Thanks to all of you lovely people for sticking around & be expectant of a new post explaining my brand spankin’ new channel!  Any suggestions for names?

Happy December!

Where Have I Been!? (& EXCITING News!)

Hey, long time no…read!  How’s it going!?

So, I thought I would just do an UPDATE post, seeing I haven’t blogged since the seventh…a little embarrassing.   But, have no fear; exciting things are coming!

First of all, I would like to declare you are now reading a FIFTEEN year old’s thoughts!  I turned fifteen a couple days ago, and I must say “FINALLY!”.  Having your birthday in the ninth month of the year isn’t very satisfying, but hey, who’s complaining?

So, yesterday was my Grandma and I’s family birthday party.

Wahoo!  Happy 85th!

Anyways, my point on telling you this is that I got a rather EXCITING gift that is going to lead to many rather EXCITING things.

Oh, yes.

I am now the proud owner of a Canon t5i!  And we can all guess that that means…(drum roll, please)…I will be making YouTube videos!  Ahhhh!  So, just a backstory, I have been watching YouTubers for over three years (June of my sixth grade), and have been simultaneously DYING to make my own.  I have put much, much thought into it, and have decided I am ready to partake in a journey of me blabbing about my life/fashion/holidays/celebrities/music continuously!  This does not mean I will be quitting blogging, but I will just say that if you are interested, I will have a YouTube channel up soon!

I have absolutely no idea when I am actually going to begin filming, but I’m predicting it will be within the next two weeks.  School is extremely hectic (art, science, history, and math are the DEATH of me) at the moment, so I know I will not be able to post new videos everyday, but will try my very best to stick to it at least once a week.

Because of my gorgeous new friend, it also means I will be able to take PROPER photos for this blog!  Adios, iPhone lens!

Photos like these:

Words do not contain my excitement!  Of course I’m nervous to put myself out there in video form, but I have wanted to do this for ages, and the time has come!

So, once I get everything set up, I assure you you will be the first to know about everything!  In the mean time, if you have any suggestions for my first video, please let me know your thoughts!  I will talk to you guys soon!  Have a good one!

I’m Alive!

Hey there, well uhm, Happy June I guess!  I just wanted to update and say that indeed, I’m still alive!

And, rockin’ the penguin sweater…

So, I apologize yet again for my absence, but have no fear!  I finish school on Tuesday the 18th, and then my last exam is on the following Monday.  That means I am in insane mode for that short bit, but I promise I am not going anywhere….I’m still breathing.   Can we call this like a blog ‘hiatus’ or something?  Haha.

I will post as soon as I can (PROMISE!), and I already know what the next one is going to be.  Let’s just say I may be going to a certain concert tomorrow night to see my favourite artist(s).  Any guesses?  Maybe someone I know ‘ALL TOO WELL’, cause I’m ‘THE LUCKY ONE’, and it’s sure gonna be ‘HOLY GROUND’ because ‘EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED’.  Clean up on aisle six; somebody thinks they’re funny over here!  We need to pick up the pieces and build a lego house.

Enough with the puns and ridiculous pictures (although I know you loved them).   I will talk to you very, very, very, very, very soon.  Any requests?  More fashion?  More things to do?  More DIYs?  More summer-y stuff?  More music?  Recipes?  Celebrity style?  Personal (pictures of the week)?

I’ll leave you with a cuteness overload…

Liv’s Life: Current Favourites, What I’m Up To, And My Thoughts

I am so, so, so, so, sorry it’s been this long!  So ridiculous!  But, I’ve started a new semester, and it’s been so full force all February.  In all of my classes I’ve had multiple tests/quizes/assignments, and I have been reading To Kill A Mockingbird for class, which I have just finally finished.  I know, I know, no excuses….but sometimes school life just tends to take over!  On top of all of this I have headaches a few times a week, so that kills everything, and I have other things I have to do as a part of a daily routine.

Another thing to apologize for…a lack of ‘me’ posts.  I’m not sure how much you guys like my update posts (just about me), but I think it’s important to do them once in a while, and it is where my blog started.  I have been writing in a journal almost everyday since October, and I have just been expressing lots of deeper thoughts into it, and then posting more DIY & Fashion posts on here.  I don’t always feel like writing about me on my blog and then repeating everything but in a more personal manner in my ‘diary’.  But that’s not the point of this post….

I just wanted to share some things that I’ve been doing, and some favourites!

So I have probably mentioned a few times in my posts that I have not been very good emotionally & mentally the past few months.  High school has hit me hard.  It’s not just the school work, (I can deal with that), it’s the people.  Going into high school, I lost the majority of my friends purely because we didn’t have any classes together.  We drifted.  And since just recently I always was waiting for people to talk to me.  Well, apparently that’s not how life works, and if you want something you have to get it.  At least for fourteen year olds.  So, I’ve branched out.  Olivia’s OUTGOING!?  What!?  Not exactly ‘outgoing’, but not so quiet.  I have never been outgoing because I never want to disrupt the teacher during class, but it’s just the little things….partaking into a conversation with people you don’t know can really pay off.  YOU broke the ice, and they will remember YOU for it.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a very awkward person, and I’m trying to deal with that.  It’s just now that I’ve really realized that I have to change myself a little (in a good way) to get some people to like me (the real me).  So, yeah, that’s what I’ve been dealing with daily.

Apart from ‘the deep end’, I’ve been still watching lots of british youtubers and stuff like that. They are hilarious, and I, admittingly, am a ‘Zalfie’ lover.  Zoe and Alfie are my favourites, and I feel like they are in the early stages of when I watched Luke & Ingrid’s daily vlogs.  Hehe.  I also have been tumbling a bit, which you can see here!  I love tumblr!  It’s really inspirational and I have gotten many ideas from there.  I also just love to go an look on my page sometimes and see what I’ve reblogged.  It’s sort of like my life in pictures, but not my pictures….if that makes sense…

Another thing that has been taking up a bit of my life is my room!  I changed my room up a month ago, and since then have not stopped doing things to it and searching for future projects to do.  I am going to do my macaron painting, which I have already started drawing, get a bulletin board, move some things around, get two new pieces of furniture, and a quote board!  I will absolutely be doing an updated room tour because A LOT has changed surprisingly for only about two months since my last one.

I have been listening to soooooo much music lately, you would not believe it!  I guess I just haven’t updated you with my favourite songs for a while now, so I am going to start with my music favourites of the moment.  Long Live by Taylor Swift has definitely made it’s way on the list.   It makes me a little more positive about going to high school everyday.  I read that it is a song about her band full of average people becoming ‘the populars’ once they’re on stage, but I think it’s more of a graduation song to be honest!  I hope I still like it 3.5 years from now in my senior year!  Haha, I didn’t buy it for like a week because I was convincing myself that I had to wait until I was graduating, but that is just ridiculous.  Yep.

I’ve started reading “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”, and was searching up advertisements for the movie, and noticed there was a song I really liked, so I bought it.  Haha, not really how to explain how I purchase my music sounding exciting.  I went to iTunes, searched the title, and bought it.  So exciting!  It’s “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons.  It’s just one of those songs that you’ve probably heard before, just never thought twice about it.

The last song I have to talk about it ‘Sympathy’ by The Goo Goo Dolls.  When I was little, I was a MASSIVE Hilary Duff fan, and of course I have watched A Cinderella Story probably thirty times in my lifetime, and I always thought the soundtrack was AMAZING!  Good job, song-pickers!  This song is one I have always admired in the movie, never forgot about it, just never thought to buy it.  But I did and I like it!  I also have been thinking about getting “I’ll Be” and “Hear You Me” both from that movie, but I’m not too sure.

So, I just wanted to say thank you for reading and sticking with me…with March Break (and summer!) on it’s way, I will be posting more frequently I’m sure.  Plus, with the spring & summer weather comes spring & summer themed posts!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Talk soon!

Pictures from here, here, here, and here!

Liv’s Life: Little Update

Hey guys!  Sorry I’ve been a little sparse posting lately…I’ve had some stuff going on.  Yesterday tumblr was down, so I couldn’t post my favourite quotes, and today I had a huge migrane, so was a little ill to be posting.  Sorry about that!  I will have of course my Christmas posts up soon.  I’ve also just been dealing with some personal stuff lately, so excuse the lack of posting!  I will try to do as many as I can.  I have been a little busy this week and I will be next week because my school is going crazy with break and everything, but, as I said, I will try to everything I can!  I’ve even had a bit of writer’s block!  But for now, please enjoy some of my favourite pictures on tumblr!
