Vlog: What’s Up, April? (I’m Late + I’m In Florida + Woooo!)


So remember how I said that I was going to film a vlog every month?? Remember how I did February and March and then I ran awAY TO THE SUNSHINE STATE NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN?? Just kidding I totally wanted to abandon my blog because I posted a new music video and I was quite proud of it so…here we are. BUT I STILL FEEL BAD ABOUT HOW LATE THIS VLOG IS. And how unedited it is. And how I’m sitting on the dashboard of my RV in Florida and y’all aren’t here partying with me (aka listening to me get better at the ukulele) because THAT IS SO SAD.

I released a behind the scenes + bloopers video to go along with the “Hello / Alive” music video!! (Lots of hilarity and also a massive geek tutorial on my video editing process!!)

I’m filming another music video! This one involves UKULELE OMG and palm trees and a mashup. (Including a song by one of my #top favorite bands – guess who even though I totally just gave it away with that hashtag lololol)

My mom is currently beta reading my novel. *hyperventilates into a paper bag*

Y’all are doing Camp NaNo?? TELL ME ABOUT IT. I haven’t joined in on the fun this year because April is always my vacation month (muahaha) BUT Y’ALL ARE SLAYING IT. Let’s talk about your books in the comments!!

I finished reading Heartless and I don’t really know how to feel. BUT OF COURSE I SCREAMED OUT A REVIEW OVER HERE.

Anyone got music recommendations for a very long drive back home?? BECAUSE I NEED NEW MUSIC!! STAT!!




What’s going on this month for YOU guys??

rock on,
abbiee

  4. LOVED the vlog, Abbiee! So excited to hear you play a song from one of your top favorite bands (and yes, I do know who the band is xD) - IT'S GONNA BE EPIC, ALL OF IT.

    Music recommendations ... hmm, I've been enjoying Sarah Macintosh lately. I'd never heard of her before my sister had me listen to one of her songs (I forget from which album, drat) but I'M HOOKED NOW xD.

    Also YOU READ HEARTLESS. Can you link me to your review of it? I want to read all of your screaming thoughts! (also I JUST FINISHED IT TONIGHT SO *passes out*)

    Can't wait for the next video! *promptly scampers off to watch the bts*

  10. Have you heard of AKW? Their music gives me the feels. I just bought their 'To Be Alive' album, but their 'Last Lines' album is pretty awesome too (if you listen to any songs of theirs, do 'Last Lines'...or 'Desperate').
    What about Lord Huron? Or Matthew Perryman Jones? Or Trent Dabbs? Katie Herzig (her two newest albums are awesome)?

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
