The Blogger Recognition Award

I have been awarded by the ever so lovely Jollygirl with the Blogger Recognition Award. :)

rules and regulations:

+ Select 15 blogs to nominate.
+ Thank the person who nominated you, and give a brief story of how your blog got started and a piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
+ Attach the award itself!
+ Comment on each nominee's blog and let them know that you've nominated them.
+ Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night.

How My Blog Got Started:

Well, at the time of building this site, my first blog, Loving Your American Girl Doll, had become unfulfilling for me. I didn't enjoy posting and it basically just stressed me out. So out of nowhere I decided to build and design this blog--originally a Dancer's Pointe, sometime in November of 2012 (November 11th, to be sort of exact). It was just a hobby blog until a few months later, when I decided to hunker down and post often. I wanted to share my writings, and have an influential blog with content that made me happy. :)

Advice for new bloggers:

Always always always write for yourself. Don't ever compare yourself to bigger blogs and better writers. Doing that will just discourage you from doing something you love to do--whether it be expressing yourself or typing out your feelings. You want to be happy with the content you are posting, so don't care what anyone else thinks. Just continue blogging about what makes you happy. :)

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…


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.
