Spring 2018 Book Haul// i need more bookshelf space..


I bought more books.. I didn’t really need to,… but I did.

I mean, I did use gift-cards on all of these books so I didn’t actually pay with my own money!

Over the course of spring break, I acquired about 10 more books from Barnes & Noble, GoodWill and Amazon.

Now stay tuned while I show you these books in front of pretentious backgrounds and talk about how excited I am to read them!

God Has a Plan for Your Life


I still have so, so much to learn when it comes to this but hopefully the bit I have learned can help you in some way.

God is honestly the coolest freaking person ever! I know that sounds like some weird cliche Christian kids tv show, but I really mean it. Hopefully by the end of this post you’ll see what I mean.

I am in no way a professional, I’m just a teen who goes to church and is trying to figure out how God works in her life. I can’t confirm that everything I say will be 100% accurate, so please correct me if you think something I say is wrong for whatever reason.

Onward! Continue reading “God Has a Plan for Your Life”

Ultimate Guide to Braces// how to survive those awkward and traumatic teenage years

Julia's Ultimate Guide to SURVIVING-.png

There’s this terrifying thing that is far too common to all humankind, mainly in their teenage years….. BRACES

I just got my braces off about 2 weeks ago, after having them on for almost 2 years, so yeah I’d say I’m kind of a pro at this XD

Braces suck. (if you have invisalign… sorry but you have ZERO reason to complain) That’s the hard but simple truth. They hurt, you can’t eat without getting food stuck in them, and they usually aren’t very flattering. Almost everyone gets them at some point in their life (except for those lucky, lucky souls born with naturally straight teeth) because someone somewhere decided that straight teeth are preferred. I will admit it is kinda nice to not look like a vampire anymore…

Braces are not a fun time, but I still managed to survive having them for two years so I’m here today to help you! Whether you currently have braces on or are getting them in the future, (or are a survivor, like me! in which case, send this post to a friend who’s getting braces??) I am here today to help you have the easiest time possible with your braces!

Let’s get started!

My Favorite Cinnamon Roll Characters

Dream Roles (2).png
cinnamon “roles” not “rolls”… hehe see what i did there.. okay sorry i’ll stop

There are many very cinnamon-ly characters in the world of theater. So here’s a list of my favorites.

This was originally going to be a post of all of my unlikely dream roles, but then when I looked at the list of characters I had made it was pretty much just the most cinnamon roll- like character from each of my favorite shows.. Whoops

So instead I’m just letting you know about who these lovely characters are so hopefully you can fall in love and be suffocated by their cuteness with me!


*disclaimer: i do not own any of these pictures, people, plays, or characters, sadly.*

Reading Playlist// yes, i listen to music and read at the same time??

My Reading Playlist.png

I like reading. I like music. So I do them both at the same time. How fun.

Yes, I can focus on two different sets of words flowing into my brain at the same time. Glad we got that out of the way.

This playlist is literally a mess. Like it’s all over the place. It’s kinda got everything. And I love it. Enjoy.

Credit to this style of playlist post goes to Apollo. Continue reading “Reading Playlist// yes, i listen to music and read at the same time??”

All The Bright Places// Book Review


Dang, this book had a lot of feels.

I have a lot of emotions about this wonderful, wonderful book. But some of those emotions are a bit mixed. (Also I didn’t cry? This book definitely hit me hard in the feels but I didn’t actually cry.. whoops) So I’m going to tell you about it.

This post may contain some spoilers, but I’ll try my best to warn you of them before it’s too late.

Also I’m kinda new at this whole “actually trying to do good book reviews” thing so please don’t judge this post too hard. Thanks. Continue reading “All The Bright Places// Book Review”

Being the Best// My advice on handling competition, improvement and “failure”


*trust me i’m not trying to like brag or say i’m like the best person ever or anything ’cause honestly i’m a huge mess and just trying to give you guys some advice so you don’t have to learn these things the hard way like i did*

I struggle a lot with trying to be the best at everything I do.

I’m a very very busy person because of this. I fill up all my free time with just stuff to do. And then I try to be the very best person at all of it. Continue reading “Being the Best// My advice on handling competition, improvement and “failure””

The Liebster Award// I’ve probably been nominated before but like oh well??


I’m pretty sure I’ve done this tag before at some point but oh whale

Loren nominated me for a thing!! Thanks, dear! Make sure to click her name, to go to her new blog if you haven’t yet!

Also sorry that I’m just doing tags on both blogs this week, I’m veryyyy busy! I have All County band this week (so hours of rehearsals) and States competition for Thespians next week, with like actual school work in there too. So it’s a lot of work and very little sleep. But I’m really trying my best to get some sort of content out for y’all!

Let’s answer some questions! Continue reading “The Liebster Award// I’ve probably been nominated before but like oh well??”

January Favorites// (in the middle of the month??)


I know it isn’t the end of the month yet, sUE ME!!11!!1!

We can pretend, that it isn’t still mid-January right? Right. Good, glad we agree.

So I probably won’t be doing my normal monthly wrap-up posts anymore, but I’ll be doing “favorites” posts. Don’t worry its pretty much the same information in a different format! But I mean it’s not like anyone actually reads these posts anyways..

And I might still kinda do a bit of an overview at the end of the month if enough interesting stuff happens.

Let’s just do this already!
