A life post.

Hey guys. I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life lately and I thought I would jump on here to vent a little and just share my story.

Some of you may know I graduated from high school at 15. It’s been 3 years and I still haven’t done any much for my future. I’m undecided but I have an idea of what I would like to do. I’m 18 now and so I can finally work towards my ideas/dreams. The problem is support and pressure. Getting a job will be difficult for me. I can’t bend or twist..and I have a weight restriction do to having scoliosis and rods in my spine. College is something I’ve always dreamed about but I have my doubts. I’m not sure what I would want to go for. One thing I have gained a passion for is making wreaths. I’ve been making them off and on for a few months or so. My new dream I believe is to make a work at home business one..think that sounds right. I want to make selling wreaths my job. It’s something I can do physically and something I enjoy. I’ve always had a niche for crafting.

Like I mentioned above support and pressure is my problem with going forward. My parents 100% agree with me and just tell me to take my time and not too rush. Time goes fast enough to began with. My whole dad’s side of the family doesn’t support my idea or dream. They think I need to get my butt up and go get a ‘real’ job. They put a lot pressure and put me down a lot. I don’t want to over do my back..because the last thing I want is a ton of pain everyday. I can only do what I am capable right? that’s what I think. I just want to work at pursuing my dream..but without support, especially from family it’s difficult.

I’m not going to let it get me down anymore though. I’m going to pursue it. One day I’ll prove them wrong..that you don’t have to go get a ‘real’ job because owning your own business is a real job. And if it doesn’t work out, I’ll plan a backup plan but I’m going to shoot for the stars.

Never let anyone get you down..if your shooting for something go for it! There’s no reason to let someone tell you, you can’t. Believe in yourself, you know what you can do and what your capable of.

I just needed to vent and while doing so I hope I uplifted some you! Stay positive when doing anything even when times get tough.

Favorite TV Shows!

Hey guys. I’ve been doing a lot of random topic posts lately, mainly because I’m trying to figure out what exactly I want my blog to be about. I’m thinking nails, books, and lifestyle things. Anyway, in today’s post I’m going to share the tv shows that I’ve been addicted to the past month or two.

60 Days In – i actually got hooked on to this show by my boyfriend. it’s about a jail in Indiana that needs re-structured..basically the inmates are starting to take over it. the sheriff ends up bringing in regular people that haven’t done any crimes to go undercover and basically be inmates for two months. 8 people. the show just finished season 2. i wanted both seasons and i don’t think there with be another but maybe in another? not sure.

Little Women LA, Atlanta, Dallas, New York – i’ve been addicted to every spinoff of the little women series. LA & Atlanta just finished seasons but Dallas just started a week ago and i’m hooked! New York hasn’t came out with another yet..i’m hoping they do though. all series is all about different little women living life..there is a lot of drama but sometimes it’s funny. i love all the seasons.

I Love Kellie Pickler – this show just finished it’s second season also! i love watching her..her accent is to die for. her episodes are basically themed, i guess is how i would say it..like a show was about going to Japan? i think, tonight’s episode was about her attending a Chris Kyle memorial event. i just love her..every episode can make you laugh!

Teen Mom – i have watched every single episode & spinoff from this series. i’ve seen the original teen mom, teen mom 2, & 3. also every 16 and pregnant. if you’ve never heard about this show, 4 girls got pregnant at the age of 16 and shared the story about being a teen mom. there’s several different girls..i don’t like all of them but still love watching them all!

The Fosters – i got hooked on this show from scrolling through netflix one night. i’m now on season 2. it’s about these 2 woman who are married to each other and they are foster parents & have adopted the ones they’ve fostered. well, they end up taking in a teen named Callie who just got out of a juvenile home. she ends up sneaking away to get her brother out of the bad home he’s in. they end up getting into a bad situation. anyhow, Callie ends up getting into more trouble as the episodes go on..they leave you hanging every time. i’ve stayed up way too late watching them, haha.

Worst Bakers & Worst Cooks in America – worst cooks in america has several different seasons but worst bakers just finished it’s first season a few weeks ago. in these series they find the worst cooks & bakers and they are coached by professional chefs & bakers..they one by one get eliminated and then the ones left cook/bake for judges..whoever has the best dishes wins $25,000!

Halloween Baking Championship & Holiday Baking Championship- i love these series too! they pick people that are good at baking to be on the show..they end up contending to win money..each week someone gets eliminated until there’s 3 left and then they choose the best one at the end.

Flea Market Flip – this show is about 2 teams going to a flea market with a $500 budget. they have to buy 3 items that fit a category, fix them up and then re-sell them at a flea market. whatever team makes the bigger profit wins $5,000.

Sorry for such a long post but these are my favorite shows currently.

What is there to love about Fall?

Hi guys! I thought I would write a post about Fall and what I like about this season..it’s one of my favorite.

  1. leaves changing..I live in Michigan and our leaves started to change a few weeks ago but this week they are so bright and colorful. I love watching the leaves just fall and wind down to the ground. I love how they layer the yard with multiple colors and make it pretty!
  2. chilly air..I love when the feel in the air changes..it get’s just a little more chilly each week. It makes me feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
  3. fall smells..I don’t mean I like all the fall smells only a few. I don’t like the smell of leaves burning or any pumpkin or cinnamon because I’m allergic.  I like the maple, apple, toasty smells more than anything!
  4. just the cozyness..I love feeling nice and cozy at night when the air drops..it just brings the family all together again after a summer full of fun.

What’s your favorite thing about Fall?

October Goals.

Hey guys! I normally don’t make goals that I want to achieve by the end of the month but I felt like it was something I needed to do. Lately, I’ve just felt that I need to get a move on and achieve somethings.

My first goal is to advertise my wreaths on a few local Facebook groups I’m in. I don’t think I’ve mentioned in my blog at all, but I make wreaths. My name isn’t out there much at all and so I’m working at building it up. One of my lifetime goals is to own a small business one day, selling wreaths. I’m a shy person so it’s taking me a while. I’m hoping next year to go to a few craft shows which will help a lot but I’m struggling with my shyness.

Second goal is to join a few Facebook groups that deal with wreaths..like tips on making some, good places to find materials. Just any group that deals with wreaths!

My third goal connects with the second, I want to join a few more local groups to advertise on…I’m trying.

Those are all my business goals I guess you could call it..even though I’m not near a business level..haha.

My personal goals are pretty simple. I just started a new book and I’d love to finish this month and start a new one! It’s called Elenor and Park..pretty good so far. I also want to try and remember to post a positive or inspirational quote on social media. I know there’s a lot of people struggling and if I can make someone happy..or lighten up a little bit, It will make my day. My boyfriend of six years has really been down lately and it’s helped open my eyes a bit…to help be a positive person to some that could maybe use a lifting up.

I also have a few blog goals..I’m going try to stay on track! My normal posting schedule is Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Last month, that didn’t work out..so I’m trying this month! I’m also going to try and throw a few lifestyle posts in..not so much nail related this month but there still will be some. I might add a new weekly or bi-weekly post about what I discovered on Pinterest. Since the season are getting colder, I tend to lean more on Pinterest for recipes, decor, ideas..everything.

So I’m going to leave off on that. Chat later!
