// words of mine //

i bet you were all expecting a sappy sentimental post about the new year, weren't you?

about the death of 2015 and the birth of 2016, the year of opportunities...

yeah, well that previous sentence is the closest we're going to get. ;)

so be thankful.

{unless of course you don't like posts like that. in which case... be thankful}

the reason for the lack of posts is due to other projects such as:

i. school + piano 
ii. my magazine
iii. life

here's a list of things i have discovered since the dawn of the new age:

I. everything in life has a rhythm

II. florence + the machine
i'm not sure why i like her yet, 
i just do.

III. senior year is inspiring as heck

IV. senior year is busy as heck

V. if you make time for something, amazing progress can be made.

VI. while change is exciting it can also be frightening and intimidating.

VII. learning to drive is fun <3

VIII. i love lists and twenty-one pilots.
oh wait. that's not new

IX. a lot, and i mean a lot, can happen in a year.

X. christmas kind of makes me broke?
i think i need to stop finding such expensive gifts.

XII. right when you think you've got everything planned perfectly,
God shows you He's the one who plans your life. He's in control, not me.

XIII. i love discovering new music, books, friends, routines.
little changes such as those give everyday life a fresh perk.

i don't even know what this post is.
but its been too long since i've typed out words on this blog.

stay alive, my friends |-/

  1. I love your magazine! It's cool to be able to work on projects that are born out of sheer passion and enthusiasm. I guess that's what blogging is for me. :)

    Learning to drive is so fun. I'm getting my Ps in May. Are you in your Ls and working towards a full liscense?

    1. Indeed it is! Projects like those are often what inspire others the most, I have found. :)

      I live in the USA so I think things work a little bit different here. I have my learners permit (learning to drive with my parents), but hopefully by June I'll be able to take the test to get my full licence. :)

  2. I don't know why I love this post so much, but I do <3 I'm always so thrilled to see one of your posts show up in my blogger feed:) I love everything you write!

    1. Thank you, Nina! You don't know how much that means to me! I'm so happy that I'm able to write for you all <3

  3. I love this post :) its so casual and real. And Even though it isn't necessarily a deep post, it isnt by any means shallow either. Glad to have you back :)
    We need to talk sometime soon, I miss our conversations!!

  4. GIRL YOU HAVE A MAGAZINE?! And I bought my sister Florence's new vinyl for Christmas and *I* can't seem to stop playing it. Haha

    1. YES KATIE I DO. AND I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE IT. here's the link for the post about it: http://intothewesternwild.blogspot.com/2015/09/through-time.html
      Its not anything official (aka not published) but I've actually printed it, and its real, and its crazy. CRAZY.

      duuuude, florence on vinyl? That's awesome! Right? She's just so... I don't know

  5. Hello Evelyn. So good to know you through your profile on the blogger and the blog post. I am glad to stop by your blog post and go through it which is good and what you said of 2016 is a year of opportunities.

  6. THIIIIIIIIS. hi. xD I love Florence + The Machine. Not sure why, either -- HAHA. But something about her music is just super cool and almost 70's-ish feeling?? I DON'T KNOW but I know that I like it. And yes, Katie got me her new vinyl and it is just lux. ♥ gah. AND TWENTY ONE PILOTS. I literally just discovered their music a few days ago and ugh I'm rather hooked. x) IT JUST FEELS LIKE SUMMER AND ICE CREAM AND EVERY HAPPY THING EVER. gah. yep ♥ I'm totally rambling now.
