A Letter to Future Me – Dear Future Me Tag

Letter to Self

Thanks, Chloe Lauren for tagging me to do this! If y’all aren’t following her go follow her! She’s super cool and reading her blog will be well worth your time.

Rules

  • Tag it under ‘DearFutureMeTag’.
  • Write a letter to yourself to read again in a years time.
  • You can answer if you’d like.
  • Nominate other bloggers.

I nominate other bloggers to do this tag. As in if you’re a blogger, I nominate you.

Dear Future Me,

Yo, you’re almost not seventeen! That’s crazy, man. YOU MUST BE SO SAD! Seventeen is SUCH a supreme number. Anyway, how are you? Do you have a regular job? How’re things going with dance? And what about the love life? Happily married with seven kids right?

How’s saving for a car? College? Are you still planning to be a massage therapist? Are you completely overwhelmed?

What about Parker? Is she still your best friend? How’re things with her and Old Stingy Ninja Creeper Man? To outside observers, the name is a bit of a long story. The poor guy hates the name.

Ugh, I’m gonna have to wait a whole year for answers. I’m impatient. I have so many questions but I’ll stop for now.

If there are any people in your life you’re having problems with. Quit being stubborn and fix it. I don’t care if it’s “their fault”. Do your part, man. Remember when your thought process caused an entire situation. Yeah, keep that in mind.

Don’t blame anyone for your unhappiness. You don’t need anything or anyone to be happy. If you have nothing, what can you lose? You’re gonna be fine.

If you’re overwhelmed, take smaller bites. Don’t worry about getting everything done to perfection. You can do a few things really good and settle for that.

Stay true to your roots but don’t be afraid to branch out.

Yours truly,

Past You

IDK… Oh Wait, I Do

Yo wassup y’all? I was considering making the title all acronyms. IDK… NVM IK. Awesome, right?

So, I was gonna do a post about how I have no clue what I’m doing. I don’t know where I’m going with this blog. I don’t know what I want to do. And I’m probably just gonna start a new blog when I figure it out and just curate this one for now.

Then I saw a post about the zombie apocalype and it all changed. I know what I want to do with this blog. It’s in the name. What’s in a name? SO MUCH. The original intent of this blog was to be a place to write about making my dreams happen. But this blog is my dream. So like what do I write?

Back to the zombie apocalypse (which by the way I’m going to make a post much like it). It made me realize what I really want to do with this blog is just DREAM. Or more like DAY DREAM. What would happen if? Like my mock vacation post. Kinda like that. But better. More like story form. It’s gonna be awesome.

So. I’m going on an adventure. Who’s coming with me?

7 Tips for New Bloggers, Accompanied by Harry Potter

Hi! It is I, Luna, and Wanda graciously invited me to guest post here, so…. here I am! I’m so happy to be able to post on such an awesome blog, and if you would for some unheard of reason like to visit my blog, feel free to do so (after reading this post, of course).

I’m going to give all the new bloggers out there some tips (not that I’m a pro because haha nope) to get started and get into blogging! If you’re considering starting a blog, or you’ve just begun, hopefully this list will help.

  • Don’t worry about how many followers you’ve got. It doesn’t matter, as long as you’re enjoying it. Don’t start blogging with the expectation of getting 50 followers overnight, because unfortunately that’s just not how it works. You’ll have to earn your followers, and earn them you will!
  • Be yourself! Blog about what you’re passionate about, and whatever you feel like. It’s your blog and its content is completely up to you. People appreciate reading something raw, real and unique every now and then.

Luna Lovegood is the best example of being yourself.

  • Get out there and become a part of the blogging community! Leave comments, read other people’s posts and follow blogs you like. This will help get you noticed and it’s up to you to put yourself out there. Plus, this community we have here on WordPress is wonderful. You’ll meet so many amazing people!

Introduce yourself. Say hi!

  • It’s okay to start over. If at any point you’re not satisfied or happy with whatever you’re posting, or you aren’t enjoying blogging, it is perfectly fine to wipe the slate clean and try again, completely fresh. Just end your old blog and start anew.

Say good bye to your old blog if you need to!

  • Make your posts easy to read. Don’t use too many different colours and fonts and make sure your background doesn’t make it hard to see the text. Try to write with decent grammar, because most people, like me, would find it hard to read something with an overload of emojis, abbreviations and acronyms.

Yeah, don’t make people say that while reading your blog.

  • Be respectful to other bloggers and readers. Think about what you’re writing, and try not to be insensitive or disrespectful. It’s easy to misunderstand writing!

And if you do offend someone, make sure you apologise.

  • Take the time to organise your blog. Customise it, categorise your posts, experiment with all the available widgets, create different pages and make it however you like, keeping in mind that it has to be easy to navigate and read.

Nobody should feel like they’re trying to complete the Third Task when navigating your blog!

I certainly hope these tips will help you get started on your blogging journey, which I’m sure will be wonderful, by the way. And surely you enjoyed the GIFs because who doesn’t like some Harry Potter? 😀 Remember to read Wanda’s awesome post on my blog as well, in case you haven’t already! You’ll definitely find it helpful.

Mock Vacation: Oahu, Hawaii

Oahu-Hawaii

I’ve always wanted to visit Hawaii. Who knows, maybe one day I will. But for now that’s a long ways off. However, on my new Pinterest account you will find in the Travel board I mostly pin stuff about Hawaii. I decided to put all of that to us and plan a vacation.

I would land on the island of Oahu. First I’d visit Kalihi Valley to look for wallabies. Then I’d continue on to Liliha Bakery for coco puffs. Following that I’d visit Waikiki Beach and attend a luau and maybe see some fireworks.

The next day I’d go to the Rainbow Drive-In for a plate lunch and for dessert I’d go a little farther to Leonard’s Bakery to get malasadas (Portugese-style donuts). After that I’d tour the Dole Plantation. Followed by shave ice from Matsumoto. Then onto Puu O Mahuka, the largest Hawaiian temple on Oahu. And to finish off the sightseeing I’d go to Ted’s Bakery for some chocolate haupia cream pie.

And of course once I was done sightseeing I’d just stay at a hotel and wander the beaches and shop. And that would be my vacation to Oahu, Hawaii.

What would you do if you went to Hawaii? Which island would you visit? Would you visit somewhere other than Hawaii for your dream vacation? Who would you take with you? Let me know in the comments!
