My Goals For Fall

I am a whole month late for fall AND IT'S KIND OF KILLING ME. Last year I am not even kidding I did 10-15 fall-related posts but this year I am behind. When I was coming up with this post I was thinking of fall blog post ideas but it seems like I have already done all of them. Like seriously. I even have a post with 31 blog post ideas and I still couldn't think of anything. Finally, I decided to list some of my goals for fall even though I'm like a month late. Actually though even though I count fall as October and September, officially fall starts at the end of September and ends sometime in December so I'm not like that late. Kind of. Maybe. I don't know.

Let's get started!

1. Get a pretty fall photo

I mean you can't go through fall without getting some kind of orangy leaf photo. I love fall colors and I kind of want to just have a full fall photoshoot.

This photo is originally found in this post. 

2. Carve a pumpkin

Or at least have a pumpkin somewhere. The insides of the pumpkin are actually kind of disgusting but the outcome is cool.

3. Make a fall-themed video on my channel 

I started a youtube channel recently and most of the videos are kind of terrible but they are improving. Kind of. But I'm thinking of doing like a 5 cute and comfy fall outfit ideas video. Comment down below if you like that idea!

4. Get into student council
I have been wanting to do student council since I knew it was a thing and I already applied now I just have to wait and figure out if I got in.

5. Survive UIL

This year I am in the theatre UIL class and even though it's super cool I'm also very very scared about it. UIL is basically like a competition and they have it for pretty much everything from sports to academics including theatre. I was cast as an understudy but a couple weeks ago my teacher told me that if we were to go on in the competition then I would actually be the one acting and its like super confusing.

6. Play in the leaves

This is so steryotypecly fall but it's also something that I like really want to do. In Houston weather wise it's pretty much fall until spring but leaf wise it's almost like none of the leaves change color and if they do it's usually because they are dead or at least look dead so we almost never get the cool leaf changing color pile thing. It's kind of annoying.

7. Read more books than usual

I feel like fall should be that cozy season where you curl up with a good book, a blanket, and a mug of hot herbal tea. For me, that is like my dream so I'm going to try to read more. During the summer I got super behind on my reading but with school and also Name That Book coming up I really need to read more.

8. Do Halloween

What I mean by this is actually get a costume and go trick or treating. With Harvey, everything is a lot more complicated but I am pretty sure we are going to go trick or treating although I'm still not sure what I am going to wear.

9. Do some kind of fall DIY

I did this garland thing last year and I am not even kidding I just haven't taken it down. Since I am in a new house though and a new room and I want to do something else and also just make the room more festive. Comment down below what DIY you think I should do!

10. Be more conscious of what I eat

I have been trying to be a lot more healthy lately and I would say I am partly succeeding but I want to try to continue that into this new season. I love food but sometimes that can lead to me eating a lot of food and not even realizing how much or not realizing the flavor so I also want to slow down when I eat.

11. Get a fall sweater

Sadly during the flood, I lost all of my jackets and sweaters which kind of annoyed me. One of my friends is letting me borrow one of her hoodies for things like school but I really want one of those cozy and big fall sweaters. In case you like, know me in real life and want to buy me a present this is a fabolous idea.

12. Eat lots of soup

Soup is by far one of my favorite types of food PRETTY MUCH EVER and it is perfect for the cooler months. Soup is simple, makes you warm, and can also be super healthy since a lot of soups are vegetarian but also taste amazing.

I love fall so much, it is by far one of my favorite seasons for just about ten million reasons. Haha. Make sure to follow my blog using either the little button to the left side of this post or using Bloglovin'.

I'm A Teenger | How It Feels + Lots of Screaming + Photos Through The Ages

I'm a teenager now.
That's kind of crazy for me to say.

I have always been very interested in names and what you can call yourself when.
I did a whole post about it a while back but I can't seem to find it now (annoyingly).

I have been wanting to be a teenager pretty much since I was 6.
Teenagers have always been this almost godly figure to me.

Those people in high school who have their own cars and phones and do social media and have a million friends.
As I have grown a bit older I realized that most of what I imagined wasn't really true.

Once you turn 13 you don't magically grow wings and the ability to make all of the friends you want.
It's still pretty cool though.

 That was like deep and kind of sad but now for the happy part of the post. I'M A FREAKING TEENAGER NOW AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED. Wednesday was my birthday and thank you everyone both in real life and here on the blog for wishing me a happy birthday. The whole day I was just so happy and I really never stopped smiling. My mom woke me up singing the "it's your birthday, so happy birthday to you" song which was a pretty cool way to wake up. When I was walking to school with my friend she gave me this adorable bag that I'm kind of obsessed with right now and will definitely show you in my birthday haul post. I always get to school early so for that about an hour that we waited I kept running up to people saying it was my birthday which was seriously like a lot of fun. Throughout the day a lot of my friends told me happy birthday (after I reminded them but it still counts). During homeroom one of my friends even made a card and got everyone to sign it. As my mom likes to say my love language is words of affirmation which means I pretty much love compliments so my birthday is by far one of my favorite days of the year.

I still can't even believe THAT I AM 13 and actually writing this post. I started this blog when I was 9 and I have grown so much since then. It's crazy to look back at some of my old posts and just see how the ways I have changed both in my thinking and appearance. 

This is a picture of me from this post dated february 2016. That's not even that long ago but first of all just look at this photo quality. It's kind of horrible. The photos on my blog aren't that great but they are improving quite a bit. I must admit though I still have that same shirt and it still fits me (I've matured but I haven't grown that much). 

Also this picture which was from december 2015 when I was doing Daily December. First of all I'm actually sick in this photo so I don't look that great. Second WHY DOES MY FACE LOOK SO FUZZY. Like why did you put this on the internet past Nabila? Third I actually look kind of younger in this photo. My appearance face wise I would say hasn't changed that much but my face looks kind of like a baby in this picture. Does anyone else see that?

I found another photo of me! This one was just a month earlier than the last one in November 2015. It was when I went to this cool art thing  My first point is again the quality. Like WWWHHHHYYYY. Second WHAT AM I DOING. I am not like the best at modeling for photos but I've been trying to get better at it (mostly so that I don't look so awkward in photos) and I would say I have definitely improved. 

Wow. Haha. Is it bad that I really like making fun of my older posts? No? Ok good haha. Ok another thing I am super excited about is that I now have an instagram account! I convinced my parents like two days ago that yes it is ok if I get instagram so you know... Follow me! But seriously though it's so weird that I am actually 13 now and I would love some advice in the comments! Also I might have changed my profile picture about ten times in the past week so I'm sorry but this will hopefully be the official one for now and so sorry if I confused anyone. :)

What is some advice you would give me as a new teen? If you're a teenager how did you feel when you turned 13? If  you are not a teeneger what are you looking forward to about being a teen?

Interview With Little Miss Wizzy

I have a very special guest on the blog today on this lovely Monday who goes by the name of Little Miss Wizzy. She is one of my best friends so I got her to start a blog (do you see a trend both here and here). She started it a couple months ago and hasn't posted that much but she is back on and posting on her marvelous blog weekly. She asked me if we could do an interview swap and I, of course, said yes because friends forever right? Maybe? Ok? So now welcoming LittleMissWizzy also known as Isabel to the few lucky people who know her offline!

What is your name and what does it mean?
Isabel, devoted to god

That's so cool and I actually did not know that. What is your blog name and what does it mean?
LittleMissWizzy, it came from a club name, wizzy, the club required a made up name that started with W or a breakfast food. I was having trouble coming up with a name. My friend took my nickname, Izzy, and added a W. Wizzy!

So like an online game or something I'm guessing. How do you spend an average day?
I like to start off my day watching YouTube. I love watching DIYs and recently bought a hot glue gun. I like to invite over friends or think about my next post.

Yeah, youtube is basicly life. What are your favorite hobbies?
I like video games and crafts. Inviting over friends are a light to my day!
So inviting me over is what I'm hearing pretty much. Interesting. Interesting. What is your favorite thing about me/Nabila?
Nabila is one of my best friends. Though I mess with her a lot, I really care for her. She is a great friend!

Awwwww thanks. Definitely did not just add that question so you would say that. Definitely not. How do you come up with blog posts?
I watch videos and get ideas from friends. Sometimes ideas just pop into my head! :)

Cool cool. Same. What does your blog mean to you and why do you
I got the idea to blog from my great friend, Nabila! Once again she is a great friend!

Because I'm of course very inspiring. If you could hang out/meet any living person for an hour who would it be?
Right now, Michelle Obama. I feel like she is an inspiring girl who deserves to be loved. I have a book about an amazing woman, and she's on the 3rd page!

That's awesome! What are you super annoyed about right now?
For annoyed, the answer will always be my sister.

Told you she was awesome! Make sure to go check out her blog and give her a follow.  She is a super cool person and an awesome friend. While you're at it if you haven't already followed my blog using that little gadget to the left of this post or with Bloglovin' make sure to go do so! Also, my birthday is like in 2 days and I'm like FREAKING OUT because I will be A TEENAGER and I'm like actually scared. SEND HELP. 

Do you enjoy my interview posts? Do you want to be interviewed on my blog (find out how to do that here)? What are your answers to some of the questions I asked Isabel? How did you find my blog? When is your birthday and how old are you? Have any advice to me as a new teenager?
