Hello and welcome back!
First of all, I’m sorry I haven’t posted on here in about 6 weeks. I had to take an unofficial hiatus because of the start of the new school year. I’ve been insanely busy and haven’t had time for blogging. This is why I also haven’t been responding to emails, or responding to comments, or reading other blogs posts too. I am planning to catch up on posts very soon!
Today’s post will be a major life update! So much has changed since my last posts and I’m thrilled to share it with you all! This post will be a little longer. So, grab a snack, get a drink, and get all cozy.
I started my freshman year of high school at the beginning of August. I am still homeschooling.
School is going fine! The workload is larger and expectations are higher, but I was already prepared for that. I am taking five classes this year, plus I am slowly learning German and reading my driver’s ED book. My five classes are:
- English I (studying autobiographies)
- Business I
- Physical Science (currently studying Physics)
- Algebra I
- Public Speaking
My favorite class this year is English I! My favorite subject is actually history, but I don’t have a history class this year. My least favorite class is Physical Science. I’ve never been great at science and I find it extremely confusing.
I’ve already been in school for six weeks! It’s felt both long and short. Only 30 weeks left! Anyone else ready for Thanksgiving break already?
A school day routine post is coming soon! So you can learn more about my daily life.
You read that correctly, I got my first *legit* job! I call this my “first *legit* job” because I’ve had small, irregular jobs for a couple years like babysitting, dog sitting, and Air B n B cleaning, but this is my first job with a regular paycheck and regular hours.
What is my job? I’m a gymnastics coach! I’ve done gymnastics for over five years and I’m so happy to be a coach now! I work with kids aged 5-11 with gymnastics and trampoline and tumbling.
I love my job! It’s fun, I’m working with kids, and teaching them something I’m passionate about! I’ve already been working for four weeks, two nights a week.
Because this is my first post in six weeks, I haven’t been doing much blogging. I am extremely behind on reading posts and I will hopefully catch up on this soon. My break was refreshing because I didn’t have to stress over blogging while I had multiple other commitments. That doesn’t mean I didn’t miss it!
As for upcoming posts, I have a long list! I’ll get back on my schedule every Tuesday and Thursday at 3:00 CDT. I’m looking forward to those!
I thought this was an important update to include! Recently, God’s been showing me so much! I’ve been intentional about reading my Bible, praying, and worshiping Him! It’s so beautiful seeing how He’s working in my life.
Here are some truths that have been on my heart recently!
God’s in control. My past doesn’t define me, Jesus does. His name is truth. God created the absolutely beautiful world I live in. I couldn’t live without Jesus. There is power in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus loves me and that is why I am valuable.
I pray that those reminded you of God’s faithfulness and goodness!
Some other life updates are that my Youth Group is back in full swing for the school year! We meet one evening a week and discuss the Gospel and have a great time doing it!
I’ll be getting my driver’s permit soon! It’s crazy to think that I could be driving soon. I’m going to start studying soon, and hopefully, take the test!
My birthday is coming up! I’ll be turning fifteen! Wow, that’s crazy!
Thank you so much for reading! Again, I’m sorry that I disappeared for six weeks. I’m so happy to be posting again!
Let’s talk in the comments! How are you? How’s school? Do you have a job? How’s your relationship with Jesus going? I would love to chat with you about anything you’d like!
Also, I updated my profile picture!
Next post will be on Tuesday! See you then!
Reminder: Jesus loves you!
