This month’s notes:

Lows

  • More emotional rollercoasters. I discovered a lot about myself this month, like how much value I put in the opinions of others, how hard I try to please them and how much it hurts to do so. I'm currently in the process of rewiring this mindset. I want to get to the point where I am consistently aware I am enough. It's been rocky. I've slipped a few times. But that's okay. I don't have to be perfect.

Highs

  • This month I discovered a show called Miraculous Ladybug and I have no regrets. I'm obsessed and CAN'T WAIT FOR SEASON TWO. If you have Netflix, I highly recommend you check it out. Be careful, you may will get addicted. <3_<3
  • I completed my Algebra class, passed and began Biology. At first I was panicking because I'm not exactly "science brained", but I noticed with LOTS of repetition and a tweak in my note taking style, I CAN understand. (Another fear conquered.)
  • I went out to lunch with an old BFF and oh my word was it crazy. I drove myself there and discovered how not alone I am in this world. Such a blessing. <3

How was your February, friend?

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…

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)




This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...




Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…
