Today’s To Do✨

Today’s list will be complete shortly and it feels good☺️ but then again I didn’t have too much to do lol. 

✔️Feed/Clean after pets

✔️Wash dishes *Probably won’t have to do any tomorrow:)

✔️Read/Comment/Respond *Did a lot today, still doing more in a few.

✔️Post new diary entry

✔️Post to Instagram 

✔️Plan Fun Friday & Short Story Saturday *Wrote a few ideas down. Will decide tomorrow 

✔️Work on task #2 for the typewriter project- due tomorrow! 

✔️Read a few chapters

✔️Clean bathroom (not full clean so it shouldn’t take too long)

✔️I’m gonna have this space ready because I feel like I’m forgetting something lol.???? I’ll be back for this. Okay I remember what was supposed to go here. I was supposed to film some videos but decided earlier that I would hold off on that to complete everything else. I decided to put this on the list for tomorrow. *Updating at 11:45 PM why am I still awake?? Anyway, I actually went ahead and recorded today so never mind tomorrow. Yay! Goodnight.

🌸7:45 PM current time: Actually I was wrong, I did have something else to post. Something very quick…BRB

I did a few extra things today, including What’s Up Wednesday. I think there’s another unexpected post I need to do? If I post again you’ll know. I have a few awards/tags to work on but I won’t start on those until next week. I may ask for a reminder honestly, if you know you’ve tagged me for something please feel free to mention it in the comments. I usually write them down or screenshot but everything is so unorganized right now. And by next week- I guess I’m just trying to say there’s a chance I might have missed some.

One last thing:

Tomorrow I will have a new featured image for Today’s To Do. Nothing special and not super exciting I know, but I’m glad for something fresh. I was getting tired of this one lol. Well that’s all, let me know what you’ve been up to this week. Do you like changing up your featured images or do you prefer keeping it one theme? I’m thinking about keeping all of the colors matching.

Golden Pink Diary: Entry #1✍🏽


I invite all of you into my mind, raw and unscripted. This was not planned, this wasn’t drafted out first, this is me just speaking on how I’ve been feeling lately. This is me sharing with you all rather than shutting down like I normally do, especially in my personal life and relationships.

As I’m typing this, I look at the time and it is 11:11

In numerology 11 is a master number. A very powerful, intuitive number. Those with 11s in their charts (like myself) are usually here to be an inspirational guide and help raise spiritual awareness.

I felt a strong need to share this so some of you may be needing to read this. As you know, yesterday I didn’t post at all even though I had planned to. Monday, I posted but I really wasn’t in the blogging mood, I hadn’t been for a few days with everything going on. That is why I was or may still be behind on many of your blogs. I was giving myself a hard time, even feeling guilty. Not just because I didn’t blog but because of a lot of other issues in my life. But it’s time to stop beating ourselves up. It’s time to let go of the past and relax, let go of some of those burdens weighing down on your shoulders. Stop holding your breath– breath, take deep breaths and slow down. Be patient, be calm.

Hard work and patience is key. It will bring peace. But hard work doesn’t mean overworking. When we don’t complete our tasks it’s okay. It shows that we’re human, we aren’t machines or robots. Some days we won’t be as active and productive as others, some days we might not be feeling in the best mood and may need to step back.

Have you ever read the story The Tortoise and the Hare?
My message to myself and to everyone else is that slow and steady wins the race…

It’s okay to take your time, it’s okay to need your space, it’s okay to take a break. Do things at your own pace and you will achieve greatness. You will end up where you need to be, when you need to be.

If you’re working too hard, or trying to compete with everyone else some how to “keep up”…

You’re going to have a burn out. A burn out, for those who may not know is a state of emotional and physical exhaustion caused by overwork or stress.

Let your creativity and your life flow out in the most natural ways, don’t try to force or go against the flow. No i’m not saying get lazy, i’m saying just relax. If you work too hard you burn out, if you get lazy you miss out on a lot of opportunities coming your way so what do you do? You find a way to be in the middle. If you’re having some type of inspiration and you want to put something out there or you want to do something- Let it show, but if nothing is coming right now just be patient because the inspiration and motivation will come. It’s coming.

And know that you don’t have to keep changing directions out of fear, out of things not going the way you want/planned especially if you’re unsure. Be still when you’re unsure. Let your intuition and whatever it is that you really love doing guide you. You’re where you are for a reason.

Write down everything you need to let go of, everything that is holding you back just write it down, rip it up, burn it, submerge it in water. Do whatever you need to do to get rid of it because it can not come with you on this journey to success and true happiness. But after you complete that part of the ritual it isn’t over, you have to take action. You have to keep going. You don’t need to “run” and exhaust yourself, walk or jog through these obstacles. The finish line will be in the same place.

What’s Up Wednesday✨

What’s Up Wednesday?!

Hey everyone! WHAT’S UP?!?! That is the title of this post, well partially. Are you all wondering where I’ve been? Probably not, I only missed a day (even though it feels like so much longer) but we’ll talk about that later. Cheila has invited her readers to join her in this “What’s Up Wednesday” and I thought it would be a great idea and opportunity for me to get another post out. Here’s the link if you want to read hers☺️

Now let’s get into mine:

wuwquestions-edit-969x1024

What we’re eating this week:

We’ve been struggling to get to the grocery since we no longer have a car at the moment so there’s not much to choose from. We have junk food (chips, ice cream, ice cream sandwiches etc) which i’m trying not to eat as much. We also have fruit, and lunch dinners. The kind we get are pretty good, maybe i’ll blog about them one day. They do have a lot of sodium so that’s something to stay away from. I don’t eat them every day. Oatmeal, burgers, fries, smoothies, kale. That’s about it for the most part. I obviously don’t have the healthiest diet.

What I’m reminiscing about:

Summer. It’s basically here and it’s crazy. Before we know it it’ll be fall and winter again! But I want to have a lot of fun and have a lot of cool things to blog about this Summer so hopefully that works out.

What I’m loving:

I’m loving my alone time, even though other people aren’t so happy about it. They think that causes more stress but honestly, it doesn’t. Not for people like me. Sometimes we NEED this space to clear away that stress and get back on track. Forgive me for being me, without an actual apology. I have nothing to apologize for. Said with much love.

I literally saw this on Instagram today and I couldn’t agree more: I’m also loving the WordPress community as usual. You all are still amazing! We all are.

What we’ve been up to:

Trying to plan better financially. Looking for a new car that we don’t have to pay so much on every 2 weeks! Saving up for the guinea pigs new cage. Still don’t have a couch for the living room so we’ll be working on getting that too… and then a TV. But more bills before that. Blah. Money, money, money.

What I’m dreading:

Paying said bills. Looking for a new car. I miss the old one already and it’s only been gone a week. That was my very first car and I had it for a year and 2 months.

What I’m working on:

A few posts to upload. I need to work on some tags and awards but probably won’t get to that today. Some planning for June and everything else I already mentioned.

What I’m excited about:

I honestly don’t even know… To see what June has in store for me?

What I’m watching/reading:

Right now I look at the TV and The People’s Court is on lol. I do watch the court shows around this time if i’m not blogging or doing anything else. They come on after The Real, the talk show that I watch. I’ve been watching Pretty Little Liars, Impractical Jokers, but I need to catch up on some shows on Netflix/Hulu. I forgot to watch America’s Got Talent so I need to see how that was. I’m reading a book called Ruined. I should have been finished already.

What I’m listening to:

Has anyone heard of Njomza? I’ve been loving her music lately. You may have saw my Instagram posts about her. Check out her song “Baggage” which is one of my favorite songs at the moment here. Or another favorite of mine, “Sad For You”

What I’m wearing:

T-shirt and leggings. Nothing special.

What I’m doing this weekend:

I have no idea. Hopefully we have a car then I can think of something.

What I’m looking forward to the next month:

Summer Shopping. Blog posts I have planned towards the middle and end of the month. New featured images.

What else is new:

I’ve been a little more frequent on Instagram and have gained a few followers. More post about that next month. This is the first week I have no idea what I’m going to write for Short Story Saturday. I have a few ideas and prompts but I’m still working on the prompts and I’m not quite ready for any of the ideas I already have. Any suggestions? What should I write about? What should the main character be like? What will be the problem they face? I might end up doing a Story Time about something in my life if I don’t come up with anything before Friday.

That’s all! Stay tuned for another post shortly. Are you participating in What’s Up Wednesday? Comment below.

We Can Be The Change

Please take the time to read this. Please take the time to take responsibility and take action in making a positive change in this world. We can do SOMETHING.✨

Dreaming of Guatemala

There have been a lot of very negative things going on in the world recently … but I’ve realized what the best step for all of us to take is. There is something we can all be doing to make this world a better place, even if that difference is significantly small. By taking on one small random act of kindness at a time, we can do so much in the ways of being the change we wish to see in the world.❤ Please keep reading to learn more.

When times of terror greatly affect us and cause us to fear forour protection, anxiety begins to take root within us. It’s the natural reaction; it is frightening to know what people are capable of, and how we might one day be personallyaffected by this hatred and evil. The thought of our own safety, as well as those that…

Short Story Saturday!

Today’s short story is a game play conversation between four teenage friends at a sleepover. But how well do they really know each other? How close and caring can they really be? I’ve listed some basic information about each of the characters. Maybe you can play along as you read?

2 Truths, 1 Lie

Bonnie- 17 years old, Aries, loves all sports, hates the color pink, very outgoing, outspoken, also thinks she’s the “leader”

Alina- 16 years old, Cancer sign, loves pastel and neon colors, kind of outgoing, likes to read and write, rarely listens to music surprisingly, usually very positive and cheerful, is a cheer leader, kind of into fashion

Sarah- 17 years old, Sagittarius, popular, confident, most people find her attractive, loves pink, outspoken, probably the “leader” of the group, very strong personality

Hope- 16 years old, Pisces, doesn’t have a favorite color, shy/reserved, quiet, usually the one to go unnoticed, observant/good listener, sweet, really pretty (if only she knew)

Sarah: Are you girls up for a game?

Hope: What kind of game? It’s 1 AM. Is it scary?

Sarah and Alina snicker a little

Hope: It’s not funny!

Sarah: It kind of is Hope. What are you scared for? I just want to play 2 truths 1 lie.

Alina: OOOH let’s play! That sounds fun!

Hope: Yeah, that does sound kind of fun I guess.

Sarah: Bonnie are you in?

Bonnie: You know I don’t really care.

Sarah: Of course. Anyway, you all know how the game goes right? We’ll each tell 2 truths and 1 lie about ourselves and we’ll have to guess which 1 is the lie. Who wants to go first?

Bonnie: You should.

Sarah: Alright fine I’ll go first no problem… I have a wealthy aunt and uncle who sends me $300 every week,  I hate the color orange, I want to be a teacher. Which two are the truth, and which one is the lie?

Alina: OOH! I wanna answer first I think I know this. I think the lie is that you hate orange. I’ve never seen you in orange, not that I can remember.

Bonnie: Nahh, I think the lie is she wants to be a teacher. She probably wants to be a fashion designer or something. But I never heard about a wealthy aunt or uncle. She definitely doesn’t want to be a teacher.

Sarah: Hope, what’s your answer?

Hope: Well I actually remember you telling me you wanted to be a teacher one day. Unless that’s changed? You asked me if I thought you’d be a good one. I still think you would. I think the lie is that you hate orange.

Alina: Did I get it right???

Sarah: You and Hope both got it…Right. I’m sorry Bon, but you was wrong. As shocking as it may seem, I definitely do want to be a teacher. And my aunt is pretty wealthy, she’s a lawyer and her husband is a doctor. They don’t have any kids. I don’t know how they make it work.

Bonnie: Wow, that’s probably how. That is shocking though. But i’ll go next. I was in ballet for 3 years, my least favorite sport is football, I sometimes drink my parents beer when they’re at work. Which one is the lie?

Sarah: You’re so bad ass! You drink, that’s got to be true, The lie is you took ballet! I bet you cringe at that thought.

Alina: I agree, I can’t see you ever being in ballet. That’s the lie.

Hope: I think you’re bad ass, but I don’t think you would drink that’s the lie. But you aren’t afraid to get rough and dirty so I don’t know… uhhh… I’m sticking with what I said. The drinking is a lie.

Sarah: The lie is ballet! Girls that play in dirt just don’t do ballet!

Bonnie: Well…This girl has. I hated it. I was in ballet when I was 6 until I was 9. My mom made me do it and she finally saw how it was ripping me a part and let me quit. I started hanging out more with my dad after that. I think she’s still a little upset about it to this day. Hope was the only one right. I don’t drink.

Alina: That’s so funny! I just imagined you looking so uncomfortable in your little tights and pink tutu.

Bonnie: Yeah enjoy it because that’s the only time you’ll see me in a pink tutu, in your imagination. Who’s next?

Alina: Me next! I write songs and sing the lyrics to myself, I was the captain of the cheer leading team in 4th and 5th grade, I like the color black. Which one is my lie???

Bonnie: You like the color black is a lie. You’re more into girly colors as far as I know.

Sarah: Hmmm… You was probably a cheer leader since you are now, but maybe not the captain. I’ll say that’s the lie.

Hope: Well I know you write, a lot. I know you’re into cheer leading soo, maybe liking black is the lie.

Alina: Wow! You’re all wrong. I mean Hope you’re not entirely wrong. You all know I love writing! But I prefer to write stories and articles, not song lyrics. That was my lie. Pastels are my favorite colors but I like that black can go with so much. It’s your turn Hope.

Hope: Okay… I want to be a news reporter, I was once going to be a child model, I haven’t had my first kiss yet. Which-

Sarah cuts Hope off

Sarah: You’re too shy to model! I know you’ve been shy your whole life, I wish you’d grow out of it but some people never do. But those quiet ones are the sneaky ones so you probably have had your first kiss and just haven’t told us. I’m saying the lie is that. You’ve had your first kiss. Probably way before any of us.

Bonnie: Oh leave her alone, there’s no telling how many kisses you’ve had hot ass.

Sarah: Whatever. I’ve only kissed 2 guys thank you very much. What’s your answer?

Bonnie: I say you don’t want to be a news reporter so that’s the lie.

Alina: I agree. News reporters have to do all that talking, in front of a camera on live TV for everyone to see. Yeah, that’s the lie Hope. I can see you working from home or something. People that work from home can make a lot of money! Trust me, I watch a lot of YouTubers and read a lot of cool blogs. You can find out anything with the internet. There’s ways. Maybe you should look into that.

Sarah: Okay don’t be extra Lina. Who was right Hope?

Hope: None of you actually.

Sarah: What!

Alina: You were gonna be a model??

Bonnie: You really wanna be a news reporter?

Hope: Being a news reporter is one of my top 3 options and my mom was gonna put me in pageant shows and modeling when I was 7, I use to get invitations but I begged her not to make me.

Sarah: You should have. It could have broken you out of that shyness, maybe you could have won. I would have.

Bonnie: You would have went or you would have won?

Sarah: Both.

Bonnie: Wow. Suuure you would. Conceited much?

Alina: Never mind that, we seriously need to start talking and listening to each other more. This game just showed us a lot about our friendship!

Sarah: Shall we play another?

“NO!” They all say in unison.

Alina: Yeah, no more games tonight Sar, i’m tired. Maybe later. Let’s get some beauty sleep.

Hope: Goodnight.

Bonnie: Night.

Sarah: Fineee. Goodnight.

Sarah turns the light out and they each fall asleep. Best friends fornever 💕
