May is Ending... I am SHOOKETH + Blogger is giving me grief


Wait a minute, May can't already be over, right???

*glances at calendar*

Oh.... HOW

I didn't even do that much this month, I need more time!!!!!!
**All pictures in this post are my own**

-SO, I haven't been getting email notifications about comments on this blog... at all. I thought I must have accidentally turned off something in the settings, but everything was in check.

Then I went to the blogger help forum and apparently this is happening to other bloggers on here as well and no one really knows how to fix it??? ANYWAYS, it's been such a pain, I hope it's just a bug that will be ironed out soon.

That being said, I am sorry if I'm later to replying to some of y'all's comments!



Overall, this month has been pretty great, I've been feeling much better and things are starting to slow down and simultaneously speed up, in a way that only makes sense in summer. 

A few things that happened:

-My homeschool choir group ended, and I haven't really missed it... I like it and will probably go back again next school year, but it's been nice staying home on Fridays for the most part. 

-Two of my siblings had birthdays this month! So there's officially another teenager in the house besides me, which is CRAZY to think about.

-My family and I met up with some old family friends that knew us when I was around three and then we stayed over night at their house when I was around nine. It's a little weird meeting people who remember you, but you barely remember them. But they were nice, so it was cool.


-The weather here has been finicky lately, either it's super hot and sunny or it's pouring rain and everything is darkness

I was at the library the other week and it randomly started storming and the power went out for a few seconds. The whole library was pitch black, and then the power started again. Unfortunately, I happened to be working on my driver's ed in the computer lab when that happened, so I lost some progress. :/ 



-My family's small garden is doing well, the tomatoes are taking over though.







 I honestly wish I was a bigger fan of peppers or tomatoes, but I'm not, lol.




-So I went swimming the other day and I came home with a sunburn starting to appear (of course) and my freckles multiplied... which is fantastic. *sarcasm* 

 ^^Me coming home and realizing that swimming for so long was probably a mistake.



 My cats lounging about like cats do.

 ^^I SWEAR WE DIDN'T RUN OVER HIM, HE JUST LIKES TO SLEEP UNDER CARS LIKE THIS.
^^^See?


 ^^^Our dog, Tawnie, is doing well.


-I FINALLY watched Black Panther this month! It was in my friend's backyard with a bunch of other teens from my co-op, we had a sheet and a projector. Needless to say, it was a very different experience, but pretty fun.

  2. YOUR DOG IS ADORABLE!!! <3 <3 <3

    I should try to do more of my own pictures on my wrap up. I do have some pictures that I plan to put in my next wrap up.

    You are so awesome at taking pictures. Loved this post.

    I always have the email setting off, so I didn't know that it was glitching. I'm a weird person who can't have a bunch of emails coming in or have a cluttered inbox because it bothers me. *shrugs* I'm an odd bean. XD

    Anyway, I relate so much to the sunburn. I don't get more freckles, but I burn easily. Everyone else in my family tans. -_-

    Awesome post. Have an EPIC June!

    1. Thank you!!!

      You should! It's a lot of fun taking them. :D

      <3 <3 <3

      It bothers me not to get them, but ehhh, maybe it will be better for me.

      Only two other people out of the ten of us in my family burn like me, everyone else turns golden or brown and they look so fantastic, and the three of us others just look like lobsters. >.< The struggle is real.

      Thank you, I hope your June is epic as well!!

  3. Ha.

    I didn't get much done.

    However, it was great that you did! I like the idea of a tomato and pepper garden (?). Also, what kind of peppers are those? Bell peppers or the spicy ones? Either way, I like them.

    Also, your freckles are adorable. So own them. (not like you can't hahahaha) <3

    I'm going to try to read more. There are so many books I'd like to get to.

    Also, to write more because writing is great. But I'm lazy. Even though writing feels good.

    What's wrong with me?

    1. I mean, honestly, SAME. It just looks like I did. X_x

      We have bell peppers and two other kinds that I can't remember, they are slightly spicy though.

      Thank you! I have no other choice but to own them, that or I pile on twelve coats of foundation, and just no. >.<

      I need to read more as well! Books are so amazing, I need mre time to read all the ones I want.

      Don't worry, I'm lazy and slack off too. T_T

  5. WHEW, I'm not the only one receiving emails about comments on my blog. I wonder what's up with that... I don't know why that made me feel better knowing that I'm not the only one. xD Also, you dog and cats are adorable! =D

  13. Um how is it nearly June?? How has the first half of 2018 almost gone by?? Who okayed this?? I'm shooketh too ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I love all your pictures, they're so beautiful! Your cats are so cute, they remind me of my cat, she loves sprawling out in the sun too ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm glad May was a good month for you!

    I haven't been getting emails from Blogger lately either, it's really annoying because it means i have to keep checking if I've received a new comment, rather than just getting a notification to my phone ๐Ÿ˜ I hope they fix it soon...

    1. I know right?! XD

      Thank you! Cats sprawling out in the sunshine are the best.

      It is so annoying, but I've found checking the Notify me box before publish comments on posts helps a lot.

  14. May has been a month of recovery, recovery from this past semester and from some other stresses. It’s getting better by now. I’m becoming more productive. I’ve decided that I want to try to gain both a little muscle and some extra strength (beyond just muscle mass) over the summer, and that should be a fun project. I’m glad to hear that you’re being able to transition now into a summer mode.

    On a slightly separate note, could you explain what your co-up is that you mentioned? I know the word, but I’m not quite sure how it works in this context.

    1. I'm glad you're recovering, Patrick!
      I also hope to work on my physical health this summer, I hope you accomplish your goals.
      Thank you!

      A co-op happens once a week (or mine does anyway), and it's like one day of school with a bunch of other homeschoolers, we meet up and there are classes to choose from for the semester. The rest of the week you work on the homework from your co-op so you can turn it in to be graded next time. So it's kind of just one day of public school a week for homeschoolers.

  15. It's so weird when people remember you but you don't remember them. Like ummm yeah hi random stranger that knows me for some reason lol. I feel like literally everyone I know went swimming yesterday. It's kind of weird. Your freckles are super cute though!!

  16. Ahhhh I love your pictures!!!! And your tiny beasties!! Can I take them home??

    Hmmm...might need to check on my own blog posts. Maybe I’ve been missing comments too?? Not sure...

    But don’t even get me started on how fast May went by...I’m still catching up and it’s not funny in the least.

  17. Hey Gray!
    Your freckles are adorable, I can't believe May is already over, my brother is now fourteen as of May 11th (WHATTT?!), I got five books in one day (lots of reading for June), and me and my sister may be coworkers in June!
    Lovely post, girl!
