WHAT'S UP IN AUGUST


All the props to Aaliyah for getting this post up on the right day. Unlike last month. We don't speak of last month.
ALSO, I THINK I FEEL MY INSPIRATION COMING BACK??? *throws confetti and buffalo dip* (Look, you can throw
waffles, I can throw buffalo dip.) 
BUT DUDES, HOW IS IT ALREADY SEPTEMBER????!!!!!!! It feels like just a few months ago it was last September.
But I'm not complaining. Nope. Everyone is wailing on social media about summer's end but I'm rejoicing. I'm a 
fall girl :'') I'M SO EXCITED! Summer can leave, for all I care *laughing emojis* Now I may indeed cry when fall 
ends. 
OKAY, SO, LET'S GET INTO THIS POST!


Church. All the doors opening for me musically. My joy.


SWITHFOOT, SWITCHFOOT, SWITCHFOOT.
Literally, ever since the new album came out I cannot stop listening. I still listen to NEEDTOBREATHE but 
it's  not as frequent becauSE I DON'T HAVE TIME YOU SEE??? I've bought Where The Light Shines Through 
twice already..? I have it on MP3 and vinyl.
But I've also been enjoying some old Rich Mullins songs. The lyrics are so inspiring. WOW. I recently watched
 the movie about him (Ragamuffin) for the second time so that really inspired me and made me look up
 his songs! If you haven't seen that movie watch it right now because it makes me cry every time I watch
 it and I never cry over movies. It is amazing. 


I finished Downton Abbey in late July, I think..? But anyways, I finished that so I don't have a show I'm watching
 right now. Mainly just YouTube videos at night.


FALL! GLORIOUS FALL!
And also maybe sorta possibly seeing JacyRayn if she can get her act together and tell me when I can come get 
her???!!!!! Jk, I love you, bae. *laughing emojis*


I don't know what the deal is but I have been getting to bed so late and for some reason I can't concentrate to
 read during the day. So I have just been reading my Bible and then going to sleep. I have started Crazy Love by 
Francis Chan, though. 


Ummmm... Same as last time? lolololol
I DID GET A FLANNEL THOUGH SO THAT'S NEW??? I wore it with jeans and a band tee and I loved it. 
GO FLANNELS!!


Downton Abbey. Switchfoot. JESUS.


I FINALLY DID SOMETHING NEW! I am now drinking Lady Grey tea ;) I'm laughing at myself because that's
 just a minor change. ALSO! I made myself this vegan, sugar-free, supa healthy iced coffee the other day and 
it was FABULOUS. Vegan stuff can be actually really good, I'm finding.


My best friend. Still missing places I've never been.


SEA SALT CARAMEL DARK CHOCOLATE!


Anything and everything, tbh.


Junior year doesn't kill me, that my plans work out, and I get over my artists block.

  3. Of course we can throw buffalo dip, and waffles, and pumpkin muffins because it’s fall. DOWNTON ABBEY OH MY. My mom told me it’s for old retired british women (a+ description mom) but I THOROUGHLY enjoyed it. I feel like deep inside I may be an old british woman.

    Flannels, band tees, and jeans, I feel like that’s the true tumblr aesthetic. Also the fall aesthetic SPEAKING OF WHICH I LOVE FALL. just everything about it man. Who says it isn’t officially fall until September 22nd. It’s fall the second that clock hits midnight tonight. *throws leaves*

    Good luck with sophmore year! I know you’ll do great Aaliyah <3

  5. Buffalo dip is a little bit messy to throw, but it's SO WORTH IT for fall <3 <3 <3 I love fall, it's so much better than summer, seriously. Like, just the clothing alone. I want a flannel too!

  6. Happy September! It sounds like you had an enjoyable August! How are you finding Crazy Love? I've heard lots of good things about that book, although I haven't read it..

    Anyway, I hope you have a fabulous junior year, and your artist's block leaves in great haste. :D

  7. Ah, lady gray tea is the best thing ever. That's one of the tea samples my parents bought in a tea shop when we traveled to Atlanta, and it is SO GOOD. I'm in the majority of people internally crying from summer being over, but definitely yay for fall! It has such a warm cozy vibe that still also says one can be outdoors without freezing externally. xD

    xoxo Morning
