I'm not idling anymore.

"I've never told you this, but sometimes, I imagine wrapping my arms around you, and pulling you into a world of our own."

"You're such a child. Your imagination is...over used."

"Better over used, than not used at all, right?"

Guys, I don't want to wait anymore. I'm sick of waiting. Nothing happens when you wait. The only thing you can do to bide the time is let boredom encompass you like the great waters of a massive ocean. It'll drown you, tugging you away from the shoreline, and there's nothing to do except sink.

But I'm going to change that. No more boredom for me. I overheard my mother the other day, talking to my dad, and she said something like; "If you care enough about yourself, make the efforts to take at least one step toward your goals."

So that's what I'm going to do.

It's going to take some time, I presume. But I won't be in the idle waiting stage. I'm building my boat, to cross the oceans. I'm preparing to take on the journey of a lifetime.

But where am I going? And how am I going to get there? All I know is, I want to be out there. Doing something. Making something. Writing something. Helping someone. I want to conquer fears and build myself up into the person I want to be. I want to learn who I am.

So, I'm taking the first step. I'm choosing my path. I'm not idling anymore.

Are you idle anymore?

Thank you for reading. <3

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
