Favorite bloggers and something I struggle with (BEDM - days 19 and 20)

I'm so sorry I missed yesterday. I literally had no time. Church in the morning, then work a little afterwards, then a party for the rest of the day (but I'm gonna be honest. the party was worth it).

Anyway, today's topic is WAY awesome. So I'm gonna do that one today, and just have a few words for today's post.

Yesterday:
Day 19, Sunday: Five of your favorite blogs and what you love about them
Okay, this is SO easy (in no particular order):
1. (I did post about the other day right here) Jess from Yours Truly - she always makes me happy. every post i read just makes me happy.
2. Hannah Nicole from Hannah Nicole - she has this serious was with words. They're so powerful the way she puts them. And also her photography is so raw and beautiful
3. Illy from Much Love, Illy - she is so cute. nuff said.
4. Grace from Grace Loves the Beatles - she's just awesome, guys. I can't explain it.
5. Emma and Elsie from A Beautiful Mess - their blog is amazing. I love their DIY projects, and their new app ROCKS.
(okay, and there are so many more favorite bloggers... I've listed them all here [and i need to update that]. Oh, and I also have some amazing bloggers guest posting for me soon! whoo!)
Today:
Day 20, Monday: Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.
I did post about this the other day. I struggle with that and also I (not constantly, just some days) struggle with self acceptance.
That's it, folks! What are your favorite bloggers? What do you struggle with?

My Favorite Photo of Me (BEDM - Day 17)

Day 17, Friday: A favorite photo of yourself and why
A Blast From The Past
I think it's this one.
My blanket was being hung on the line to dry, and I'll I wanted was to get it back. I just look so sad that I can't have it yet...
This blanket actually was passed down to each kid, but it got stuck on me. You know how every kid (or almost every one) has one stuffed animal or blanket or something that they just love to pieces? Well, this was mine. I actually still own it, but I'm not attached to it as I once was. But there are many, many memories with it.

Procrastination (BEDM - Day 16)

Untitled DSC_0014 (4) Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled
Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
Before I start writing this I'm going to say one thing.
My life isn't bad. I don't have a lot of problems in my life, and most of them shouldn't be hard to overcome.
But I do have a um, small problem with procrastination. I think it runs in the family, because my dad and some of my siblings do it too. But that's not really an excuse.
Anyway, I pretty much procrastinate on anything I don't want to do. It's really bad and some days I'm really trying to overcome it, and other days it's like. Whatever.
So I don't really have a solution other than that I really just need to stay more focused. 
It's usually in the school year it shows up worst. I procrastinate on school SO much, esp at the end of the year.
I try to keep plugging away, I really do! But it's SO hard when your school is SO hard and it's hard to understand, and there are so many more fun things to do.
Either way, if you have a solution to this, please tell me! I'd try a lot of things to overcome it.

A Day In The Life (BEDM - Day 15)

Day 15, Wednesday: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day - this could be "a photo an hour" if you'd like)
Okay, so I kind of failed the picture every hour... but it's okay. I do have some (most of the hours) pictures. :)
I'm also sorry for the lateness of this post. I said it was going to be late, but I still had planned it for yesterday. That's what happens when Google is down (constantly), and you can't log into your flickr account because google is "not safe to log into". ARGH.
Well, here we go:

my day starts off with me waking up. I go on pinterest/instagram/tumblr to get myself fully awake. Then we either do a family (missing a few people) Bible study or eat breakfast.
(okay, ignore the time on my iPod, the day that was taken I actually took these pictures after we had done the Bible study, so I was up earlier than that, although, let's be real, those times are right occasionally. kind of)
After that I reply to emails/finish up a few design things if needed (or do a blog post like i'm doing right now).
I then take a shower/get dressed.
I might take a bike ride... usually not, but I felt like it yesterday. Sometimes I take pictures of houses I think are cool (with my iPod because I didn't bring my camera) or my (awesome) yellow bike. (that picture of me is not the best, I'm aware of this)
After that I get started on my school. I get bored so I take some pictures of flowers. and then everything around me.
Yesterday my sister read our VBS script to us. It's very interesting! 
Along with school I also do my practicing (my viola isn't pictured, but I do practice it!)
Then some days my sister needs me to take pictures of something she made. So I'll do that for her.
...and take more pictures of flowers. (ha!)
Then I'll reply to emails, do blog design, write posts, anything I feel like doing.

As you can see, my days are pretty boring. 
And they're not the same every day. 

During the summer, my life changes completely, it doesn't look anything like this. :)

What picture is your favorite? Would you want me to do another one of these in the summer?
