Oh Hi

My followers have probably forgotten about me by now😂It’s been four months since I’ve been able to write on here… and a not lot has happened since. But let’s start with the most drastic change.

Yo antisocial homeschooling country girl is not longer homeschooling… That’s right.. I’m going to public school now. And honestly, the switch was the best decision I had made in a while. When I was homeschooled, my mom and I would fight nonstop, I didn’t really learn anything, and i was overall depressed because I had no friends and nothing to do with my life. So I decided to go to public school, and I’m so glad I did because lately I’ve been more social, more productive, and more happy. Ive made tons of new friends and have found lots of things I enjoy doing. I’m taking Spanish and chorus (the best electives they had to offer).Do I regret homeschooling? No, but I don’t regret going back to public school either.

Annnnd.. that’s about it😂 I look older and uhhh.. oh , I’m turning 14 in 24 days! Yuhhh😂 Also! Follow my Instagram if you wanna, its @whatfaithloves.  Comment down below your @ and if you follow me, and I’ll follow you back!!

thx for reading ily.

Xoxo, Faith

heyyy…

…. long time no see. i’m about to say the same thing i say every single update.. i’ve been super busy. its sad but  i have to say i almost forgot about this blog. i don’t think i will stop posting here any time soon, tho, so don’t worry!

ok here’s the update:

i’ve had more typical 7th grade friend troubles, im breaking out really bad on my forehead, i’m a semester behind in math and it’s summer. 

i feel like i’m constantly going somewhere going to the grocery store or babysitting or catching up with friends, and don’t get me wrong! i love it. but sometimes it gets exhausting. please don’t blame me for this, but in the past few weeks i would’ve chosen to sleep or scroll through instagram instead of blog. i’m that tired. 

speaking of instagram, i feel like i’ve been on it too much and i really needed to cleanse myself from it. i was literally always on it. whether my screen was locked or i was scrolling through the explorer page, it was still open. and i just got sick of it. so this morning i decided i wanted to delete it for a week and find better things to do. so far it’s been great! i’m not always seeing thes perfect bodies that i will never have not because i’m lazy but because my body is simply a different body type. i gotta say, social media is good when it brings people together, but it can also be toxic. i used to tear myself apart for not having the perfect beach body or defined eyes and eyebrows. but lately i’ve been getting a lot better with being content with who i am. and i think this quick “cleanse” will help. 

thanks for reading! ily. i think i will have more time to blog soon, so comment what you want me to rant about! lol, ly guys. ttyl

Don’t Forget To Be Yourself

I know it’s cliché and a little cheesy, but it’s great advice once you think about it.

God made you unique.

At some point, we all feel the need to fit in, look, and act like everyone else, right?

God made us in His own image.

If God made us set apart, unique, and perfectly imperfect, why in the world would we want to be like everyone else?

Is it because we are afraid to get picked on? Maybe, yes.

We are taught that being different is weird. We are taught that standing out in a crown of clones makes you a freak. we are taught that completely natural imperfections need to be hidden, that we need to look a certain way, and that we need to appear like we have everything figured out.

Well, guess what. We will never be perfect, and we should never try to be or try to look perfect. you are set apart. you are unique.

Never forget that

 

 

late night thoughts · rant

kids these days…

hey all,
lately i’ve been thinking… why are teenagers glued to their phones these days? why do these girls have boyfriends so young and why do they feel the need to wear a full face of makeup every day? eventually I realized something: maybe we do these things because of a pain deeper inside. I’ve heard and seen many (not all) adults looking down on teens like me, and be too quick to judge us. so what? maybe I like spending an extra twenty minutes in my makeup because I am spending time on myself? maybe my face is buried in my phone because the only people I can talk to that truly understand me are the ones i’ve only ever met on Instagram? maybe?

or… not maybe. this is my life. I feel alone. I find that every time I’m stressed out, I reach for my makeup bag. I constantly find myself scrolling through Instagram every day for hours because I feel like nobody, not even me, gets me. but when I go to Instagram and talk to my online friends in Ireland and Montana, I feel understood and not as alone. but some people these days don’t get that. some people refuse to look deeper, and instead they judge. many kids I know are depressed, alone, and  unfairly judged. I’m sure that in a hundred years, people will yearn for the days of cropped tops and skinny jeans to come back.

i think everyone needs to stop focusing on how “awful” this generation is, and start accepting change. that’s just my opinion

thank you for reading my rant

Hey all
lately I’ve been taking a break from wfl, if you couldn’t tell. I’ve just been suuuper busy with school, which usually takes me all day. and if you know my mom, you know that getting my schoolwork done and caught up is her top priority. It’s very stressful, but i know it comes from a place of love and that it’s also stressful for her. I don’t know if she understands exactly what its like being a teenager in 2017, either. I, along with almost every teenager in this world, am going through the whole my-social-life-is-more-important-than-homework thing, which makes makes everything really hard.

also, in my recent posts, I know they kind of seem half cheeked (and I’m super sorry for that), and like I have not been my happy, cheerful self. I’m just going through a lot right now. I will hopefully get back into the swing-o-things soon. but first, may I just say that if you have a problem with me, my blog, or what I post, please just unsubscribe. this blog is just about my beliefs, and I always back them up with the bible (with FULL context).

I love you very much. stay lovely!

HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR DISABLED PEOPLE. 

Im seeing a lot of posts bashing people with special needs. 
After people use hateful words against disabled people, they tell them to stop being a wuss. 

It’s one thing when crybabies get their feeling hurt, but it’s a whole different story when people disrespect and bully those with disabilities. 

If you purposefully insult special needs people, they have every right to be offended. 

I need to see more people with RESPECT towards special needs people.

verse of the day

Mark 7:10-13

10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother;’ and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.’ 11 But you say, ‘If a man tells his father or his mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban, that is to say, given to God”;’ 12 then you no longer allow him to do anything for his father or his mother, 13 making void the word of God by your tradition, which you have handed down. You do many things like this.”

Awards

The Blogger Recognition Award

Hello all, Faith here!
First thing’s first, thank you journalofthought2227.wordpress.com for the Blogger Recognition Award nomination!
I’m embarrassed to say this… but I don’t know anything about this award. I don’t know who created it or what I’m supposed to do… I looked on ekm’s post and apparently there are steps you have to follow?

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Write a post to show your award
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award
  6. Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created.

1., done.
2., done.
Steps 3; 4; 5; and 6, I have yet to complete.

“Give a brief story of how your blog started”
I’ve already said this in a post before but I’mma do it again. My blog started two years ago as a school assignment, but I quickly fell in love with the concept of putting my talents and interests out on the internet for people to see. The first series I ever published was called Agents Of C.O.A.T. (which is now called Agents of S.C.F.A.), and I then discovered my love for writing.

“Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers”
1. Do your blog because you love it and it is your passion, not for the fame and the followers.
2. Do not be in a rush to gain subscribers. Do not spam other people’s blogs with “follow for follow”. Be nice and the people will come.

“Select 15 other bloggers for this award”

New Year

Hey all!
As you most likely know, yesterday was the last day of 2016, which means yesterday was new years eve, which means today is January first, which means today is the first day of 2017. Whaat?!
Where has the time gone? I don’t think a year has felt so short to me in all my thirteen year long life!
Are you excited for the New Year?
I was the only one awake in my house when the ball dropped. All of my immediate family members were asleep in their beds. Which means I was all alone for the first so-called “refreshing” second of 2017. I know, it’s sad. But I had my nose buried in Paper Towns by John Green all day so I was content. (It’s my new favorite book! Buy it on Amazon here)
I guess I am somewhat sorta-kinda happy about the New Year. I mean… I don’t feel any different. Am I supposed to feel different? I don’t really have any New Year’s resolutions either (other than taking showers more frequently).
Do you have any Yew Year’s resolutions? If you do, I would love to hear them so comment them below! I hope you reach your goal!

I guess that’s all for today. Happy holidays!
xoxo, Faith

Christmas 2k16

Hey guys! Two days ago was Christmas day. My family and I didn’t go anywhere on Christmas day, but yesterday we went to my grandparents house and had Christmas dinner and opened presents. Maybe I’ll do a post on what I got.

On Christmas I went over to my best friend Maddie’s house to exchange gifts… but we ended up hanging out for over three hours! that was my favorite part of Christmas this year.

What are your favorite Christmas traditions? My favorite is being with my family. I also love making Christmas treats like Almond Bark and cookies!

P.S.: I think we all know I failed at 2dof. oops.

That’s all for today. ily & tysm!!

Dear Diary

Dear Diary: Chap. 4

12/15
Dear diary,
It’s been ten days since the diagnosis and just can’t get the beeping EKG sound out of my head. Beep. Beep. Beeep.” Nena wrote. “So far, this has been the scariest week and three days of my life.”

“Nennn!” Gramma Martha called up the stairs.”Stop writing in your book and come down for supper!”
“Yes, gramma!” Nena shouted back. “I’ll be down in a sec!”
“Fine, dear. Hurry up!” Gramma returned.

“My wicked Gramma Martha is watching me while my mom stays in the hospital with Blaze. She just called me down for supper.” Nena kept on writing. “I mean, she’s wickedly cool … the best kind! You wouldn’t believe she’s seventy years old. She’s awesome. Anyways, I gtg eat!”

Nena quickly sat down her pink pom-pom pen and glitter notebook on her pink desk and recklessly sprinted down the stairs to feast.

“Coming now! I was just writing in my-”

as Nena was running down the stairs, she did not notice Continue reading “Dear Diary: Chap. 4”

#12DOF & Blogmas! Day 4

Hey guys! Only eight days until Christmas! It funny how the closer it gets to Christmas Day, the longer it feels like it’s gonna take before it comes!

I’ve noticed my 12 days of fashion posts are a little boring, so I thought I could spice it up by telling y’all what I did/will do for the day. Kinda, sorta like Vlogmas, only on a blog. …Blogmas!

So today I watched Star Wars Rouge One with my cousins. I loved it and I totally recommend! Then we went to a tai food buffet called Bangkok (I think that’s how you spell it) and it was also really good. After that, I basically crashed on the couch. for some reason I was very tired.

Next I’ll show y’all my outfit! I wasn’t really in the mood to wear anything cute, so I’m just wearing something super casual (and cold).

Shirt: I got it at a youth retreat!

Jeans: do I even need to say it anymore (I promise I’m not sponsored!)

Socks: SamsClub 😳


(Note to self: clean my mirror)

TYSM for watching! ILSM!! xoxo, Faith
