Vampire Knight, Anne with an E and Obsessed with Writing (May 2017)

This is a transparent monthly reflection where I take the time to look back, view my progress and make adjustments.

Monthly Project: Finish online classes.

GUYS. I am so flipping thankful I'M DONE. *throws confetti and wiggles for dayz* Taking classes online has been super rewarding, but I am so ready to move on and focus on something else. Something bigger. I'm thinking MORE writing, MORE reading and MORE creating!

Health → Exercise 3 days/week, drink 65oz. water/day

Exercise: 7/14 (50%)

Notes: Aha, aha, aha................. whoops. I don't know what happened here. For some reason, I just couldn't get myself to exercise. I always had this excuse that there's something "better" or more pressing that needed to be done. But now that summer is HERE, I'd really like to up the intensity and focus on improving my body and upping my energy level.

Water: 30/31 (97%)

Notes: This is the first month this year that I've been drinking enough water and I feel so goooood! This is amazing. This is wonderful. I think getting sick really helped too - there was nothing I could do but lay around and drinking water. ;)

Finances → Grow

May Income: Unknown

Notes: It's coming along rather nicely, don't you think?

Career → Prep book for publication

Notes: I edited BUT it wasn't the book I was originally planning on editing, so... yeah... This seems to be a theme. I keep letting this editing thing slip me up. In June I am going to find a better way of approaching this. :)

Personal/Spiritual Development → Work toward earning my Bachelor's degree

Complete and pass Microeconomics: I CONQUERED THAT EXAM, BABY!

Notes: So. Darn. Happy. Like. I. Can't. The bonus is that I'm DONE for the summer!!

Play/Recreation → Write 600+ words/day

How many days this month I wrote: 19/31 (61%)

Notes: I hit a REALLY good flow from the 15th to the 22nd - I think it helped that I was sick all that week and didn't want to do anything else. ^.^ One of the days I wrote over 3k words. 3K WORDS MY FRIENDS. And then I hit a burn out. BUT THAT'S OKAY.

Service → Post on my blog (at least) once a month.

I posted this month on Self Known: Yepper doodles!


Notes: Thank you thank you thank you thank you for reading and commenting and being so flipping amazing. <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…


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…
