By The Sea



Hello!

Today I took a trip out along with my family to the beach!

It was another short trip but I had a ton of fun nevertheless. And I also managed to snag a few pictures of my little outing as well.


Eleanor & Park | Book Review

source
Hello!

So today's post is going to be a bit different from some of the posts I've written before, because today's post is going to be a book review. I don't think I've ever written a book review before but it is something that I have wanted to do for a while. I love reading and books in general as they are such simple yet very entertaining objects. I will also be starting to review books on my YouTube channel as well... but more on that later. :)


Merry Christmas! | What Should Have Been Blogmas Day 25

source

Hello!

As I write this it is currently 8:32 pm on Christmas Eve. I am most likely not going to be online tomorrow, As it will be Christmas but instead of just disappearing for the next few days without saying anything I thought that I would  wish you a Merry Christmas...


A Short Day Out | Blogmas Day 13


Hello!

So the other day I took a trip out with my grandparents, mum, and sister. While I was out I took some pictures and I have decided to share those pictures with you. :)


The Things I Love About Winter | Blogmas Day Twelve

Hello!

Today I felt like sharing some of my favorite things about winter with you as I love the winter and Christmas season!

So without further ado here are some of the things I absolutely love about winter...


Day Out | Blogmas Day Eleven

source

Hello!

So today was a good day! I go to do some shopping with my grandmother and my mum, which was fun. I always enjoy shopping especially when I get to do it with other people. :)


Landing | Blogmas Day Ten

Hello!

So I finally made it to my destination! With quite the journey... Let me start from the very beginning.

Packing! | Blogmas Day Nine

source

Hello!

So if you've ever met me then you would know that I am a horrible packer. When it comes to packing I am all over the place. My worst habit is that I tend to over-pack. And I don't even do it on purpose. It just usually happens some how.


Why I Love the Rain | Blogmas Day Eight

source

Hello!

So as some of you know I live in a very rainy state. Which means that I am constantly faced with having to deal with the wetness of rain. To some people this would be an absolute nightmare. Not to me though! I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to rain.


Ugh | Blogmas Day Seven



Hello!

So I am kinda feeling stressed at the moment and I thought that sitting done and writing a blog post would help me clear my mind. I say stressed maybe I'm just overwhelmed I don't really know, but I do know that whatever I'm feeling is not very nice and I just need to relax and let it all out.


Mug Shots | Blogmas Day Six

source
Hello!

Something you may not know about me is that I love mugs. I love all the different shapes and sizes they can come in as well as all the different designs. If I were to be a collector of anything then it would definitely be mugs. Not only do I love mugs but I also love tea and coffee too. So what better a combination than these two things? I know, I'm a little weird because of my love for mugs. But hey, I love what I love.


Ending The Quarter | Blogmas Day Five

One of my favorite drinks of the season!
source


Hello!

So before I officially begin this post I would just like to apologize for the lateness of it. I have been studying for finals, working, helping tidy up the house as well as packing for the trip that I will be taking which is now in seven days! So things have been pretty hectic! However, to make up for this lost time I have decided to write two blog posts today and two blog posts tomorrow and hopefully that should have me caught up.


I'm Leaving in 10 Days | Blogmas Day Four

Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane!
source


Hello!

So if you are new to my blog and/or my Youtube channel then you don't yet know, that in about ten days I will be flying to the U.K to visit my family for over Christmas break which is VERY exciting.


Keeping a Journal and Tea Mugs | Blogamas Day Three

I'm loving my new snowman mug and sweater! 


Hello!

It seems I'm doing a pretty good job with keeping up with blogmas. I'm actually pretty proud of myself. :)


A Rainy Day | Blogmas Day Two

Source

Hey!

So today I thought I would write you a blog post from my school's library, I will admit this isn't the first time I have done this and it probably won't be the last. But as I am sitting here in this super comfy, wheely library chair I thought I would do so.


Starting Blogmas



Hello!

And Happy First of December! How is it going for you so far?


Hello December, Goodbye November

Source: http://weheartit.com/entry/group/27945194


Hello!

I can't believe that it is almost December! Wow, time has gone by really quickly. 

My Plan

I can't believe it's already November! Time to bring out my autumnal boots. :)

Hey there!

So recently one of my biggest goals recently has been to find a way to be able to blog and vlog and while keeping it consistent. Today I spent most of the day editing and uploading videos to my second channel on YouTube. It was fun trying to figure out which videos I wanted to upload. I had a lot of old videos that were filmed but never put up and so I decided to take it upon myself and do it today. 

OKAY. Here I Go Again

Hello!

I'm sorry. There I said it. And I truly am. I am sorry that I have been so busy and have not had time to continue with my blog as much as I would have liked to. Same goes for my YouTube Channel as I have no been doing well with that either. Yikes. 

I know that "you're not supposed to apologize" for things like this but hey I did it anyway because I care. 

Now onto what I haven't been updating you on but will be updating you on right now....

What's Been Happening

Hello!

So I finally have a minute to sit down, relax, and write a blog post. It feels like forever. And with my schedule the way that it is it probably has been. I apologize. I originally said I would be doing BEDO as well as VEDO but I have barely anytime for VEDO right now let only BEDO. However, that only means that I won't be writing a blog post everyday. I will be keeping my blog updated regularly though.

VEDO



Hello Everyone!

So... IT'S OCTOBER! Yay!

October has to be one of my most favorite months of the year as it's the beginning of Fall and I love Fall.

A New Week

Hello!

So... This is my fist blog post that I am writing from college! Yay! I'm really excited that I have some time to do this, as this is something that I really want to do.

So before I continue on I just wanted to mention a couple of things...

Now's The Time

Hello!

So as you can see here on my very slowly updated blog I haven't made a blog post for quite a while. This is all down to the fact that my life has gotten quite busy. Since I have recently been hired for my very first (and new!) job and also started college I have had very little time to focus on anything else.


An Amazing Weekend

Hello!

Last weekend I had the most busiest and amazing time! And I wanted to write all about it.

So here I go!

Cats

Hello!

So as some of you may or may not know... I love cats. Heck, I love animals in general. So today I thought I would do a blog post about some really cool and fun facts about cats. I actually own two cats. Their names are Louie and Charlie. They are the friendliest and cutest cats in the entire world and no that is not an exaggeration.

And to prove my point here are a few pictures of them...

 Louie & Charlie


Charlie 
Louie 
                                                           
Now onto the facts!

Banana Bread

Hello!

Today I decided to film a baking video! Which meant that I had to bake something (obviously). So I chose to bake some banana bread! And I have decided to write up the recipe on my blog so that if you don't happen to watch my videos or prefer reading a recipe rather than watching one happen you can!

So here is my banana bread recipe!


My Funk


Hello!

So I have decided to make this blog post a more in depth one than what I usually write about. I'm all about variety and trying new things so I wanted to give it a go. 

Updates & Things


Hello and welcome to my new sexy blog layout! I honestly love it SO much.

Today I thought I would do a blog post update on what's been going on with me and my life.

So to start....

Lazy Sunday

Hello!

I just thought I would do a super quick and small blog post since I don't want to skip today.

Not much happened today, hence why I named this blog post "Lazy Sunday". However I did audition for yet another play! I'm on a roll here. :)

I also went out to a little pot luck today, which was fun as I got to play trivia with some people. Apart from those two things I didn't do much else. Today was one of those lazy days that I have every so often where I do the very minimal things that a person can do in a day. Hopefully I'll be more busy tomorrow!

Tomorrow will also be the start of my practice for VEDS. So if you're interested in seeing those then keep a look out from them starting tomorrow.

That's pretty much all for today! Hope you're having a wonderful night and I'll see you again tomorrow.

Aimee :)

Practice for VEDS

Hello!

I realize that I haven't made a blog post for a while. So I thought I would change that.

I recently uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel, however, it was quite an old one and a handful of things have changed since then. Like, for example, I now have a job! Which is really exciting. This is my first job and I am so grateful to have it and happy to have it.

Here I Go!

Heya!

I'm back! I tend to be saying that a lot. But as you can tell there haven't been any posts recently and that's partially because I have been busy/procrastinating/just plain bored and not in the blogging mood. But have no fear! I am getting back to it now.

So what's been going on in my world? Well as some of you know I have been acting in a play called Sense and Sensibility written by Jane Austen. The book was written by her... not the play. Anyway... Opening night was last Friday and I had performances on Saturday and Sunday as well. It's been so much fun doing this play and I'm happy that there are still two more weekends of  performances of it. Argh! I love acting so much.

As well as the play I have also been applying for jobs and spending my summer doing trips to Seattle. Unfortunately I haven't heard anything back on the job front. But I have my fingers crossed that something will come up soon!

And yesterday I went on a trip to Seattle!


Continuing On

Hello!

I'm really happy about continuing on with this. It feels good.

So getting on with today.... Today was my first day as a vegan and surprisingly it wasn't as difficult as I thought it was going to be. In other words, I managed it quite well. I didn't have any cravings for foods that I shouldn't have and I did find some good grub to eat throughout the day as well. I believe I can manage it without any problems but I suppose only time will tell.

Summertime Begins...

Source: http://hannahmaaane.tumblr.com/

Hello there!

So I always find the first blog post after a taking a long break a bit hard to do. I never really know what to start off with... so I'm just going to go with the flow and see where this blog post ends up.

I guess to start off.... I graduated! Yay! At this point, to all my friends and family, it's old news. But exciting never the less. The next step is to start job hunting. I'd hate to just be lazing around the house over the summer....like I have been currently....

I have also decided to start my YouTube channel up again. I believe the last video I made was three weeks ago... so I'll be getting caught up with that.

I thought that in this blog post that I would make a list of all the things I wish to accomplish during the summertime. In the hope that it will help me to feel more motivated to do all of the things on my list.

So here I go...

Short Day

Hello!

I am currently being a bit naughty at the moment as I am currently in 4th period as I write this. Don't tell my teacher! I am supposed to be researching the book I read for my paper that I will eventually be writing. But as you can see I am a bit distracted.

I just wanted to make a quick update because I couldn't do one this morning as I was in pottery working on my teapot. Which by the way is looking pretty good. (I'll post a picture when I get home).

Yesterday evening I had rehearsal. And it's not one of the best rehearsals because I was not needed for most of it but I went anyway. Like a good little actress. I also mentioned that I was going to upload a video yesturday. Well I'm hopefully going to be doing that today and tomorrow. We'll see. It really all depends on how busy I am. But I hope to. :)

And today at school has been a short day. All my classes have been either 25-30 minutes long. Which is nice and not nice. It means I don't have to been in school for as long but it also means I have barely any time at school to work on my papers. Grrrr.

Not much to report as not much has happened since I last wrote a post. Although I'd like to mention that I will be trying out new types of blog posts. You'll see what I mean when I write them. :)

Thanks for reading!

Aimee :)

A Free Moment

Good Morning/ Good Evening to you wherever you are!

Currently it's morning where I am and usually I would be at school at this time but instead I am at a coffee shop sipping on a vanilla latte while finishing up the book Jane Eyre which I have to read for school. Although technically I'm writing this instead of reading but I should be back to reading as soon as this post is done.

Heya!

Hey, Hey, Hey!

So the last time I made a blog post I believe I was in Oregon. Which was months ago! Oh goodness. So the plan for me was to keep up with my blogging and you can see how's that's gone. Not good.

However on top of blogging I also have a goal to keep up with my YouTube channel, school, journal, and my future in general. Which is quite a lot. And I don't mind trying to juggle out everything, it just means that I am really super busy.
So I have come to the decision that I plan to keep more organized and make more blog posts and update my YT channel more frequently. This is something that I have wanted to do since the beginning but now I am taking a stand and doing it.

Starting tomorrow I will be posting updates about my life, opinions on certain events, and what nots and happenings that are going on throughout the rest of my life.

Just thought I'd make this blog post to let you know. I am really excited to get going on this again! :)

Aimee :)

Spring Break

Hey There!

So in my last post I mentioned that I wanted to keep active with this blog. And I do! I say this though and it's already almost the middle of April. Go me!

So what's happened since March? Not a lot to be completely honest. I'm currently taking a well needed holiday in Oregon. Which is really nice. I'm writing this post on the second day of me being here. And it's been lovely.

She Returns

Hello!

I am back... from the dead. And as you can see my blog has had a bit of an update as it looks completely different now.

I have decided to come back because in all honesty I really miss writing and having a place where I can share my thoughts with the world. I don't think I've made a blog post in over a month. So I felt that this was long overdue.

Anyway.. what's been happening in my world? Wellll....

Ugh

So much for my continuous streak. I really thought I'd get the chance to make blog posts for an entire month. Oh well I'll have to shoot for next month instead.

Soooo what's been going on? Lately I've been quite...busy? You know I'm really not sure that that's the right word but we'll roll with it anyway.

Also I didn't realize that being a senior meant that you somehow suddenly have a social life. I understand that it's not like that for everyone and that's completely fine but for some weird reason it has happened to me. I know I've mentioned it before but wow. A lot of my time is being taken up because of it.

As well as that there's been school. The obvious, I know. I can't wait to graduate and keep on progressing with my life. Which basically is looking like another four years of school. Yay!

And that's pretty much what's going on in my life so far. As soon as spring and summer break roll around I'll hopefully be sharing all kinds of fun adventures with you. Which will be great!


I don't have any pictures to share with you from today so here's my cat Louie being used as a table from the other day when pancakes were being consumed. Enjoy!

Hope to see you again soon!

Aimee :)

Short And Sweet

As you can probably already tell from today's title this blog post is going to be a short but sweet one as I don't have much to report about from today.

To start off, however, I will say that today was a pretty good day. On Wednesdays I have shortened class periods which means I get released from school earlier. Awesome, right? Also it's the middle of the week which lets me know that it's almost Friday!

Since it's the first Monday of the month there was a Senior meeting before school which was basically just a reminder about some of the things that will be coming up as the school year comes to a close. How exciting!

At the senior meeting we were also handed these wristbands....


We were given theses wristbands in support of suicide prevention. I have strong feelings on this subject that I hope to talk about one day either in a video or on my blog.

Then after the Senior meeting I did my things that I do at school and then came home. So it was a pretty productive day.

I did say that this was going to be a short blog post...

Also I started my Dear Nicole series of videos. So if you'd like to check it out then feel free to do that. They are located on my YouTube channel. :)

Until next time... 

Aimee. :)

Ordinary Day

Hello there!

Let me just start by saying that I've made it to day three! Yessss! Honestly I've surprised myself by keeping this up. I'm happy that I'm managing to keep up with my school work and my blog and soon I'll be adding in my videos for my channel again. I can't wait! It's a lot of work but it's completely worth it.

So today started out like every other school day of this school year so far, which pretty much consisted of me dragging myself out of bed at what felt like the crack of dawn to go and shower and then have breakfast. Oh joy. And pretty ended like that as well, except replace the bed with a desk and the shower with my AP Biology class. I have no clue how either of those things are equivalent but I feel like you get the picture.
I did stay after school to go over a couple of things with my math teacher, however, and then I walked downtown to the local Starbucks and had a snack there. That was pretty much my entire day.

Now because I don't like to write short blog posts, when I can avoid it, I thought I'd let you know a few of the things that are going to be coming up for this year. First of all I have decided to start a new little feature video on Wednesdays called "Dear Nicole." These videos will be replace my Wise Words Wednesdays vidoes for the most part. I mean I may do a few WWW videos here and there but the majority of these videos will now become "Dear Nicole" videos.
So what are these new "Dear Nicole" videos you may be asking? And if you're not asking yourself that then think about why that is because you should be. I'm just kidding.... Sort of.

Anyway...

The "Dear Nicole" videos are for my internet friend Nicole! We met during a YouNow live show and have become very close ever since. Because she lives in Canada we haven't met yet but we do Skype and text regularly. So I thought why not make some videos just for her? I have a lot of crazy and fun ideas just swimming around in my head and I can't wait to share them with her and with you.

Secondly... I may or may not be visiting the U.K. again this summer. Fingers crossed that I am though! The whole reason I started this blog was so I could record my adventures while I was over there last summer. So I'm hoping I do get to go back and record some more wonderful adventures with you. :)

And that's about it for today. Not a very long blog post for today but I guess that's okay. The main thing is that I'm keeping consistent. I'm really happy about that.

Oh! One other thing... I went to the supermarket today and I saw this....

Too early or too late? 

I have no words.


So that's the end of today! I hope you enjoyed today's mini blog post. I'll be sure to type to you again tomorrow! 

Have a good day or night! 

Aimee :)


Second Semester

Hello!

Today marks the day that the second semester of the school year starts! Well sort of it officially began on Saturday but considering I went back to school today, in my mind today was the day that it started. Make any sense? Yes? No? I'll just leave it at you understanding what I just said.

So saying that I'll get into what today was like...

During the beginning of second semester quite a few changes take place and most annoyingly out of all of them are the schedule changes. Having to get your classes moved around is hard and starting new classes in the middle of the year. Ick! That's probably just me though. I hate it because once I've finally settled into a comfortable rhythm of the order in which my classes go

BAM!!

It's changed and I have to reset my self and get comfortable with the new schedule that I have been given. And it's not that I don't like change, because I do. It's more like I don't appreciate having to have different class periods for the same classes.
So there's that.

Also I'm happy to still have Pottery as one of my classes alongside Net Sports which according to someone in the class is basically like having game day everyday. So that's exciting considering how lazy I am when it comes to working out... Just kidding! I love to run and I do it as often as I can, which is not very often.....

Anyway.....

In other news today went pretty well. I got very little homework, which was nice, and I got to mainly relax and get settled into all my new classes.

MY LAST CLASSES OF HIGH SCHOOL THAT IS.

*cough* *cough* excuse me....

I'm just really excited to be moving on with my life. High School has been a wild ride but this is the last semester and I've had a nasty case of Senioritis since the beginning of the year. I just can't wait to be done.

That was basically school for today. I also made a KitKat Banana Bread when I came home from school today because I love to banana bread and I thought I would give it a go. I haven't tasted it yet though.... I hope it's good and if it is worthy of having the recipe posted up on here.

Here is a picture of the bread in case you were wondering what it looks like.....



I'm looking forward to trying it and I'll let you know what I think of it when I do.

So I think that is pretty much today covered in a nutshell. I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself for making it to day two of my blog posts. It's a mini accomplishment for me. :)

I hope you have a great rest of your evening or morning wherever you may be!

Byeee for now!

Aimee. :)


Late Night Blog Post

Good Evening!

Sooooo as you can probably tell I haven't made ANY blog posts since the beginning of the year and it's already February! First off where has the time gone? And secondly I have come to the conclusion that I'm the most unorganized person ever. No, I take that back I am pretty organized but I am the worst when it comes to sticking to a schedule.

A lot has happened through the month of January and I've been quite a busy bee especially since I am a senior and being a senior has made my life very stressful. I have had to more studying than I have had to do in the past three years and the homework load has noticeably increased. On top of that I have had to do some special senior assignments that you have to get done when you're a senior. Which means that a lot of my time has been taken up because of that. And by some magic miracle I have gained a social life during this school year. I'm getting to go out more with friends and have fun times. Which is quite nice.

Now I'm not complaining about getting to do all these fun things with friends or having a huge workload because they are both great things to get to experience and most everyone has the opportunity to do both but not everyone and that's okay. I just believe that talking (or more like typing) out what's been going on helps me to unwind and gives me a chance to express what I'm feeling. Which is good as long as I don't go on long rants about it. I'd hate for this blog to become a place where all I do is complain or share all my stress. That's wouldn't be good for either of us.

Apart from all of my school work and the like I have also been trying to fit in time for some new videos for YouTube. Which is proving to be quite difficult. Not necessarily idea wise but time wise as well and as to why was explained above. BUT I hate to make excuses so I'll try not to but I don't not want to give you a reason as to why I'm not making any at the current moment. I hopefully will be back on board with it soon though! Which you'll be glad to know if you're interested in watching my videos.

So really that's all that's been going on. Today I watched the Seahawks VS Patriots for the Superbowl on TV and have to say it was a pretty close on edge game, Since I'm living in the state of WA I support the Seahawks and was sad to see them lose but I thought that both teams played a good game and in the end one of those teams either had to win or lose. Just disappointed that it had to be the Seahawks.

Decorated my nails in support of the Seahawks! 


And that is pretty much a summed up version of my day and my year so far. I do hope I can be as consist as possible with these blog posts through the month of February, as I love to write and I enjoy making new posts when I can. :)

I hope you're having a great year and I hope to get to talk to you again soon.

Bye for now!

~ Aimee :)

Starting The New Year

It's January 1st 2015!

And I'm going to have to figure out where to start off from again. Since this blog was mainly being used as a holiday thing before and not an every day life thing. I hope you can get what I'm saying.

So I think I'm going to start with this...
In my head I had made a plan to  make a short videos on YouTube every day for a year but then I realized how difficult that would be for me. Having to juggle out filming the videos, editing them, and also keeping up with school work and keeping my blog active sounded like a lot of work. BUT that didn't mean that I wouldn't be able to do it. I instead made a plan to mix everything a bit. I'm still going to have to figure out some sort of schedule for my plans but I will get it done.

Now that that little rant is out of the way I can move on to the more exciting things.

Today I woke up and discovered that Friends was now available for instant streaming on Netflix! So there goes the rest of my life.... I'm looking forward to watching all the episodes though, its been a while since I last saw them all.
Winter break is almost over as well. Sadly. I'm going to miss sleeping in until the afternoon during weekdays. Even though it did waste a large part of my day it was still really nice. Also I have to finish a novel that I'm reading for school called the Invisible Man. So far it's pretty good.

That's about it for today. I was going to go whale watching with my family but I don't think were going to anymore as the whales aren't heading this way. However if anything changes I'll be sure to add on to this post about it.

Oh and one last thing! A while ago I made a video where I talked about keeping a journal. I think I mentioned in that video that I was either going to start my new journal around the time I made that video or at the beginning of the new year. Well I haven't started it yet and if I'm blogging then I'll have to decide whether or not I still want to. I think I will... I may have a creative idea about what I want to do with it...

So that's about all really. A pretty lazy and great start to the new year. Can't wait to continue on!

Aimee :)


2015


As I write this it is currently 2014 as I am in the states and it has not gone 12 o'clock yet. However when I publish this post it will indeed be 2015. Which is quite weird to think about. I guess you could look at it as a post written in the past about and for the future.

So let me begin by saying Happy New Year!

Part of my New Years Resolution is to start up my blog again. And that's what I intend to do. It will mean that I will get to check off at least one resolution off my list.

Since I doubt exercising is going to happen.... Just kidding. I'm defiantly going to try with that one.

To be honest I miss being able to sit down at my computer and write out about my experiences, fails, and life goals, and whatnot. This blog wasn't meant to be anything more than a place for my friends and family to read about my adventures that I went on last summer when I visited the UK. But now I feel like it's something more.

When I make my videos on YouTube I haven't ever used a script. Which defiantly has it's advantages and disadvantages. However it usually means that I have to come up with things on the spot. I mean, I do have the general idea of what I want the video to be about but when it comes to filming it then that's where I struggle. I usually stumble on my words and sometimes go off topic completely. Whereas when I'm writing a blog post I have the ability to go through my text and fix any mistakes.

So if you're still reading this then you're probably wondering what this has to do with anything.

WELL....

I guess what I'm saying is that my videos aren't going to be as nearly as good as my writing in my blogs (not that my writing is that great). I mean, I hope that one day they are and that's what I'm aiming towards. This also means that I am going to experiment with using a script. Because, why not?

So that's that.

Now let me talk about 2014

2014 was a great year. I began the year as a Junior, which I honestly can't remember that much about. Then the summer came and I started my blog about my holiday. Which was exciting and fun. And while I was over there I started my YouTube channel which I've tried my best to keep up with. Then I became a Senior in High School and I just can't believe how fast the time has flown by. This year was good and I hope that 2015 will be even better.

For 2015... I hope to write as much as I can in my blog, keeping up with all my school work of course. As well as making and improving my videos. I am also looking forward is to graduate and continue on from there as well.

If you would like to you can hear more about it in my newest video.....


Like I said.... I hope to improve.

So yeah! I'm looking forward to a fantastic year filled with excitement and surprises and I don't know what I'm talking about....

I'll just take this as my queue to leave....

Have a great rest of 2014 and I'll see you next year!

Aimee :)
