Salutations!

I’m not sure if any of you noticed probably not, but I have been gone for this whole week! wow so long Why, you might ask? Well, I was off having perhaps the best week of my life!

This past week I attended Camp Kulaqua with my church youth program. From July 17th to 21st I went with 5 other girls, about 8 boys and some leaders from my church to Camp Kulaqua in High Springs, Florida. (about a 3 hours drive)

I’ve been wanting to attend this camp since I was about 8 years old, so this was very exciting!! Continue reading “Camp Kulaqua// Where I’ve Been”

my human, julia, named me after a twenty one pilots song but i don’t think she actually ever played the song for me. she should be shamed.

i swim very fast. i like to swim fast away to give my human a difficult time taking pictures of me. such fun.


i hope you guys enjoyed meeting ruby. would you like to see more of her in the future?

-Julia

p.s. i’m really sorry that this post was trash i made the actual post in like 10 minutes, even the the picture taking took like half an hour because ruby wouldn’t cooperate.

p.p.s i might not post for a bit because i’m going to camp kulaqua with my church next week and there’s the whole no-internet situation going on there. but yeah i’m really excited cuz i’ve been wanting to go to this camp for about 6 years now AND I’M FINALLY GOING YAYYY

Nico di Angelo// + why he’s one of my favorite characters ever

Nico di Angelo.png

**Before I get started I would like to say, that this is not going to be a post about lgbt diversity in books. That’s a post for another time. So if that’s what you’re here looking for, bye-bye

**this most definitely contains spoilers to at least the first like 2 percy jackson series. Like A LOT of spoilers

**Actually if you haven’t read Trials of Apollo you should be fine, I don’t think there’s spoilers for that in here

Salutations!

I love Nico di Angelo. A lot. He’s one of my favorite characters ever written. And I need to talk about that so I’m going to do that here. This post is probably going to be very very long and just full of fangirling and ranting. By the way, I’ve only read PJO, HoO, and ToA. Not the Kane Chronicles or Magnus Chase. So there will be spoilers on literally everything besides those two.

p.s. also i heard somewhere that you like your favorite character because they remind you of yourself. if thats the case, than shoot, maybe i really am emo.. XD

p.p.s none of the artwork or gifs in this post are my own. Continue reading “Nico di Angelo// + why he’s one of my favorite characters ever”

//i’m thinking as i’m sinking//

i’m drowning

in noise

i can’t hear myself think

yet, i fear

that my thoughts

might be all that i am hearing

yeah i really don’t know what this was. late night writings i guess. thought i’d share it with you because i don’t know what else to post.

and yes; i am okay.

~julia ♥

p.s. i hope to go back to normal posts soon

p.p.s. if you haven’t heard the songs drown or just like yesterday by tyler joseph go listen to them right now. please. they were a bit of an inspiration for this post.

-i better be able to do this.

2) make weekly posts on each blog and they better be quality posts too

3) have no more allergic reactions

-i have no control over this one, but in june i got like two separate allergic reactions and we don’t know what its from so i just hope i get no more.

4) actually practice all of my instruments frequently.

– i play four different instruments. yeah. its a lot. i suck at keeping up with all of them.

5) have an amazing time at camp!

-in to weeks im going to a camp i’ve been excited to go to for about 5 years now and I CAN’T WAITTTTTTTT!!! seriously im so freaking excited
