Chapters 374, 375, 376, 377, 378, 379, 380, 381, 382, 383, 384, 385 & 386 : Lost and Life

Happy Thursday!

I apologize for not posting, I had midterms and a lot of other things on my plate. I may be posting sparingly in the next few weeks as I head towards the end of the semester and classes get busier. I’ll try my best to post as often as I can.

Do you ever feel like you’re in a constant rut, where you don’t know where your life is going, and you don’t know what direction to turn? I know I’ve probably discussed this in previous posts, but it’s a constant issue.

Lately, I’ve been feeling confused and lost. I’m considering switching my major (Psychology to Media and Communication), and I’m struggling in a few classes. I feel like I’m unsure what I want to do with my life, and the thought that in a few years, I’ll have to go out into the “real world” and find a job is a scary thing. I know people say to focus on one day at a time, but lately, it’s getting more difficult to focus on anything at all.

But it’s time to take control and buck up, because I am the only one who controls my fate and future, and I’m thinking it’s time to take matters into my own hands and get stuff done!

So, what do you do when you’re feeling lost?

Thank you so much for sticking around, and I love you!

Have an awesome week. xxoo



Chapters 347, 348, 349, 350, 351, 352, 353, 354, 355, 356, 357, 358, 359, 360, 361, 362, 363, 364, 365 & 366: Hi

Happy Thursday!

Like I said in my post last week, I’ve been away for a while, and I’m so sorry! I needed a bit of time to think about my blog, and I was also sick earlier in the week!

…I realized that I meant to post this last week, but completely forgot. So I’m also sorry for forgetting to tell you that I wasn’t planning to post.

I also just realized that my 1-Year Anniversary of starting my blog is next week, and I’m really excited that I’ll get to share it with all of you!

Also, I promise, I will post this weekend, if not sooner. If I don’t, you have my permission to spam me with comments and tell me that I’m a forgetful moron.

I love you all to the moon and back, and thank you for staying with me during my time off!

So, how have you been these past few weeks? What’s going on in your life? I want to know how your day was, because for so long, you’ve cared about my life, and I think it’s fair to return the favor.

Have an amazing week!

Love you! xxoo

PS: I may have messed up the Chapter numbers in this post, but I think I’m close enough that it won’t matter. Whoops 🙂

Chapter 341: 19yearsyoung

Happy Sunday!

So, my 19th birthday is tomorrow, and I’m excited! It’s weird to think that a whole year has passed since I turned 18, and now I’ll be turning a year older, and (hopefully) another year wiser.

But fear not dear readers, my blog will not be changing! I considered changing my URL, but I figured doing that would be confusing and difficult to explain. So although I’ll be 19, the URL and title of my blog will remain the same!

Birthdays are something special, something that makes you feel happy and important, if just for those 24 hours. It’s scary to think about, because becoming another year older means having to grow up and become an adult. And sadly, since I’m not Peter Pan, I can’t avoid growing up!

So, what do you like to do on your birthday? 


Have an awesome weekend! xxoo

Chapters 315 & 316: Naps & New Books

Happy Tuesday!

Naps are a common part of our lives. From mandatory “nap time” as a child to nap times after a long day at school or work. Naps are important, because they refuel our bodies and keep us well rested for the day!

Naps though, can be bad. At least for me, because usually once I fall asleep, I don’t wake up for a few hours, which defeats the purpose of a nap. 

Today I also received a new book! I’m always excited when I get a new book, because I love taking the time to read it and pour over ever last detail. New books are a great way to relax before bed, or just to read a few pages whenever you get some free time! No matter when you read, it’s always a fun adventure!

So, what are some of your favorite books?

Have an awesome week! xxoo


Chapters 298 & 299: Almost To 300 & Social Media

Happy Saturday!

I didn’t realize it until today, but tomorrow will be my 300th post! (WOO!) So that’s my exciting news for the weekend 🙂

The other thing I realized this weekend is that I use a lot of social media sites. Besides my WordPress account, I have a Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter (which is @mssamanthajill), and a YouTube account.

It’s crazy how much time we spend on the computer/tablets/phones/etc., and all social media sites in general.

What do you think? Is this simply just a sign of the times, or is it going to become our future?

Have a great weekend! xxoo


Chapters 295, 296 & 297: Lovely Poems

Happy Thursday!

I apologize for not posting the past few days! Currently, the weather is humid, hot and icky. And according to reports, it’s only going to get hotter! 

I thought I’d share a poem with you, titled “What The Hour Hand Said To The Minute Hand”. The author is Megan Falley, and it’s one of my favorites 🙂


“What the Hour Hand Said to the Minute Hand”

By: Megan Falley

“At 7:35 A.M, you lay your tired body on mine
before peeling off, like a slow band-aid.

At 8:40 you sprint home and make instant coffee.

At 9:45 we finally drink it, cold.
I finish your leftover half.

By 10:50 you are already breathless.
I live for every time we overlap.

When 11:55 comes I spend the entire minute convincing you to stay. 
You never do.

By noon I put my hands on your shoulders and say, “Baby, 
you’re getting thin. All this running in circles and barely sitting down to eat.”

At 1:05 you tell me that while you were gone,
15,300 babies were born.

At 2:10 you don’t say a word,
just come in and kiss me for sixty seconds straight.

At 3:15 we sit quiet, listening to rain falling everywhere 
in the world at once: all 15,000 tons.

At 4:20 we pull a little from the tight joint I keep behind your ear.
You do not inhale.

At 5:25 you meet me for happy hour. 
My neck already salted, a lime wedged in my teeth,
a shot of tequila sitting on the bar.

At 6:30 I hear the ticking.
I count your heartbeat like seconds between thunderclaps.

By 7:35 I can see you in the distance, 
each second a tease until you drape over me. 
We always love quick and you never let me hold you.
I dream of drinking you through a straw.

At 8:40 you watch my beard grow 0.00027 of an inch.

At 9:45 we do not speak.
Too many people have died since we last met.

At 10:50 we pray for a meteor, 
at least a clumsy kid to spill sugar in our gears.

11:55 is my favorite.
We’re only apart for mere minutes.

But at midnight you’ll apologize sixty times
because it will always be like this.

At 1:04 AM I am already sleeping. 
It’s exhausting loving someone
who is constantly running away.

So, what do you think?

Have a great week! xxoo

Chapter 240: Time

Happy Tuesday!

Our lives are controlled by time. We measure our days with it, we either want it to slow down or speed up. Time passes by, taking memories and pasts with us. Time is with us in the present, what we are currently into, or thinking about. Time is part of the future, we plan out our lives, what we want to do, and when we want to do it. Time is something that isn’t tangible, but always near us. We wear time on our bodies, we carry time around in our pockets and bags, we look at it constantly. 

Time is something every one, including me, takes for granted. We think it’ll always be there, that we’ll always have enough time to complete our test, or spend with our loved ones, or finish a project. But time always runs out, whether we like it or not. But it’s up to us to make the most of the time we have, and share our time with others, spend our time doing things we love, or dreaming of things to do. 

What are your favorite ways to pass the time? Mine are reading a book, writing, and listening to music. 

Hope you have an amazing week!
