“I'll be searching for those moments of always within never. Beauty, in this world."

Intro (formal) // Hello, there. Welcome to my blog, The Ups and Downs of My Not-So-Average Life, where I infuse my ideas, creativity, and morals in writing form and share them on this little corner of the internet. Often times, I can be found in the "real" world, as one of my theatre directors calls it, with a (note)book at hand or taking photos with friends inside of a photo booth. Perhaps we can be friends? Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy my little corner of the internet!

Favorites (general) // Writing & friends that are considered to me as family. The color orange, mint chip ice cream, the pika, folk and indie (and sometimes, rock) music. Early sunrises and evening skies. Libraries, art stores, coffee shops and movie theaters. Theatre and photography. Wise and eccentric words. Quotation marks and "&" symbols. Laughing so hard that my stomach hurts. Brainstorming ideas and making them a reality. Exploring and discovering the world.

Miscellaneous // My dream goal that I want and will make a reality is to become a successful and well-known Young Adult / Middle Grade author. At the dawn of the night (usually before stars are visible), my brain likes to either think about my novel ideas, dissecting math problems, or my impending future. I despise downright rude or transparent people and the sound of Velcro ripping apart. Sometimes, my laughter causes milk to dribble out of my nose. The best present that one could give me on my birthday is a book, some tea, and a sincere handwritten note. Until beginning of twenty-sixteen, I had a heart condition known as arrhythmia. I cannot leave the house without my camera or a hair tie; otherwise, I flip out. Someday, I hope to make a difference.
