What I’ve been doing lately.. + sneak peek into Brooke Jade’s November Photo-A-Day contest ๐Ÿ’›

Hey everybody!

This is just a warning that I will not be posting anything long today as I am completely and utterly busy (and also haven’t been getting much sleep at all lately, and I must change that and go to bed early. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚)

But for the sake of my blog not dying, and also because I will miss all you lovely people, here’s a short summary of what I’ve been up to lately!


1. YouTube!!

No, I’m not going to rant about how great my channel is-ย click here children!

But um yeah.

I kept my promise and a new video is out.. or will be out. Very soon. I did my whole theories video and ended up getting so involved in it that thirty minutes went by and I was still blabbering on. So much for making a nice, short video. But it’s okay- I guess, think of it as a thank you for having to deal with me and my very short minute photography videos.

Just a word of warning: if you ever personally feel the need to film very long videos, expect to wait daaaays for anything to upload. Seriously. My video is currently processing at 19% and my patience levels are just dropping very quickly. Anyway, you can expect that to be up soon!

I expect to see all of you fangirling over how amazing I am and how I make such great videos.

T o t a l l yย  k i d d i n g.


2. It’s my birthday soon.. and I’m having a party!

Yes, I know it will be epic.

I am having a party for my 14th Birthday this weekend and the theme is fiesta!

There will be a prize for the person who is most colourful and fits the theme the best. My best friend Alyssia and I were actually scrolling through Pinterest party ideas, and that’s where I got all my inspiration from. Friends are just the best.

I like, have a personal party planner, and it’s the best. You can be damn sure that the big day will involve everything I love most- the people, the food, the cactus, the unicorns, you name it.


3. The summer holidays.. freedom, joy and Instagram ๐Ÿ’œ

90% of my friends have Instagram now, and I couldn’t be happier.

While I do think that constant posting and social media related worries are depressing as hell, I also find that if you do it right, you can find jealousy free inspiration in the ways that others lead their lives. At some point, I used to follow a whole bunch of random people that I didn’t know, but now I only follow accounts that I’m genuinely interested in. I’ve also changed my old theme and now only post my own photos.

You can find me @ soulfeels

My account is all about good vibes and a happy lifestyle, so if that’s your thing too, come visit!

Oh, and yes, it’s nearly the summer holidays! I’ve got three weeks to go until we break up, and I am no longer in 8th grade. It feels like the time flies by so fast, but it still really drags at times. I’m just trying to make the most of everything I can at the moment and just enjoy myself. For once, I am grateful that our school starts exams early in the term so we can chill out and enjoy the end of term.


4. NaNoWriMo (:

I don’t know why I put that smile there. Maybe to trick myself into believing that NaNo is a nice, innocent little cherubic angel when really it is the devil. I don’t know why I thought I’d be able to write 20,000 words, let alone 50,000 in a month. It’s the 22nd of November, and I’m about 4,000 words behind my target goal of 14,000.

Even though I’m not getting a huge amount of time to write, especially at home, I often find myself just sitting down in Home group and finishing off parts of my story. I enjoy those couple of moments where inspiration is like a flowing river. I’m a real pantser, in terms of writing. I don’t like to plan, I just go with how I’m feeling and spread my intended message.

If you didn’t read my last post on my NaNo novel, I’m writing about violence, racial inequality and issues like divorce and death of a loved one. It is definitely a challenge, incorporating so many meaningful themes, but I’m loving the process.


5. Last of all.. the photo contest!

To end this post, here’s a sneak peek into a little contest I’m participating in- It’s hosted by a fellow teen blogger, Brooke Jade, and here’s a link if you’re interested and love photography. (Be quick though, this is a November post!)

I will be posting all of my photos by the end of this month, but here are some of my favourites..

Thanks for reading- Happy Wednesday!ย 

I’m feeling random today. Are your ears pierced? What do you eat for breakfast? Know any vegans? Do you know what Kawaii means?


Shocked_ In awe_ Yep, I know it's a good post! (1)
