Wedding Bells! A Wedding In Review

June 24th, 2013

______________________________________________

Hello all, it is a Monday afternoon and we have just finished dropping off the last of the returnables from the wedding. Annmarie and Brad are off on their honeymoon, and after that back to Pennsylvania. As for me, I am now an only child with a sore body from this crazy weekend. Let’s start this recap!

Annmarie, along with her 5 bridesmaids were up and ready to go early this past Saturday morning. Hair and makeup was done by 10 and they made their way to the church to get fully dressed. Her dress made her look like a princess, and her bridesmaids were there to help make it look it’s best.

Only a few close family members got to see her before the actual ceremony. Annmarie kept cool, calm and collected for the most part leading up to the wedding. After these pics, I didn’t take much considering I was a groomsman in the wedding, but the wedding was simply marvelous. The man shed tears as she made her way up the aisle, and it was inevitable to see that they were a match made in heaven.

We’re Golden

May 18th, 2013

______________________________________________

This week has been pretty busy on my part, but I’M BACK and finally ready to coast into Summer, along focusing on some self projects to be developed over the next few weeks. Here is a small recap of this week.

Firstly, I have been getting a lot of use of my new favorite sneakers I purchased from H&M‘s Conscious line of eco-friendly clothing. I am absolutely in love. I also purchased a matching cap.

Other then testing ruining my week, once I was done with a cramping hand from multiple essays, I spent the evening with my friend Becca at my first Cabaret. We spent the night with a fancy Italian dinner along with some amazing voices from my school. It was good to finally enjoy myself and not have to worry about school.

On Thursday, my family took me out to eat for my BIRTHDAY at one of my favorite restaurants in GR. The Beltline Bar, notoriously known for their “American-Mexican” food, is always a stop I’m up for when it comes to eating. My favorite part of the meal was the fried ice cream.

-Finally yesterday was my golden birthday and I became 17 years old! I couldn’t have asked for a better day, and a more satisfying week. I hope you enjoyed your week while I was away and I will be getting back into the regular routine. Enjoy your weekend readers!

 

Testing… Testing… A Short Leave of Absence

______________________________________________

I am yet searching for the pay-off of taking an Advanced Placement class. Hopefully I will feel a little more rewarded after my exam this Wednesday. Until then I will be taking a small leave of absence from blogging this week so I can focus on my studies. Expect a post at the end of this week recapping the last few weeks. I hope you all enjoy your week and good luck to anyone else in my position going through tests.

*P.S. Happy Mother’s Day all!*

One Year: A Year In The Blogosphere

May 8th, 2013One Art Print

______________________________________________

Welp, I can’t believe it’s been a year since I started on this domain. It doesn’t feel like much, but I am proud of maintaining this home for me on the internet. I have had a presence on the internet like most of my age group for at least 6-7 years. I remember making little websites on my own when I was in middle school, etc. They were always abandoned. This has been a project I have stayed determined not to abandon, and I think I have even gotten better at updating rather from when I did 6 months ago.

I have always been fascinated by blogging, and like I previously explained I have had a presence on the internet for a while. For a long time I had been interested in video-blogging, Youtubers, etc. But it really was not where my passion was. I started reading more dedicated bloggers in early 2012 and that’s where I started to get inspired. I was also into photography and growing to be into the field of graphic design, and once I saw that many bloggers were just on these sites to share their passions, I was instantly inspired to partake in the fun. So I really had no other motive then to just get into it and see where it went, and I am still learning about all of this stuff.

I still am learning many things about the Blogosphere as I go along in this adventure but there is plenty I am already finding out. One of the biggest things I have learned is not to be afraid to try new things. At first, it can be quite overwhelming by bigger bloggers that you may not measure up, but what gives you an edge is the new things you try rather then sticking to the Status Quo. You will be happier if you truly blog about the things you like writing about rather then fitting a category  I still can find myself struggling with that, but I know I am much more pleased with my writing when it’s through my own passions. Speaking of passion, that should be your prime motivation. If you are blogging for monetization or fame, you will more than likely not get the results you are aiming for. People will begin to see through your lack of legitimacy so just stay real and blog about what makes you, you.

What I look forward for the future of this blog, is to see me share more. I began pretty vague and way less personal when it came to writing and sharing, and I am continuing to grow in that field, and I am excited to see what I have in store. I also think that another form of sharing my own content has motivated me to improve my content which I think I have grown in a designer all around in only such a short time, and there is plenty more to learn so I can’t wait to see where it takes me.

______________________________________________

I would like to thank everyone so far that has taken the time to visit my blog, comment, or like posts. I appreciate every view and like so much and it motivates me even more to keep going to create new ideas. I can’t wait for another year in the blogosphere. Have a wonderful rest of your week readers!
