VLOG: What’s Up, June? (I’m Getting My Own Studio + I’m Editing My Book + Other Exciting Things)


HOW IS IT ALREADY JUNE?? Or, more importantly, how is it I AM STILL WEARING SWEATERS in June?? I mean there is an upside to this because most sweaters are on sale right now becAUSE IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE SUMMER. I am very underwhelmed with the chilly weather up here in Vermont BUT!! I HAVE A FUN LITTLE (actually kind of long not gonna lie) VLOG FOR YOU TODAY MY FRIEND.


I may or may not continue to give y’all one cover per month like I’ve been doing. I KNOW I KNOW I FEEL REALLY BAD ABOUT THIS. But here’s the deal, friend: I’m taking on a new job and trying to make some serious headway with other projects – as well as my own LP album of music. So that means I’m going to have less time to make covers and music videos to go with them. WHICH MAKES ME SAD. But I promise I’m going to be doing more covers this year (I’m just not sure how many) as well as releasing another single!! SO WOOT.

And speaking of music: I’M GETTING MY OWN RECORDING STUDIO. Right now it’s just an empty cement room in my parent’s garage BUT HEY. It will be awesome yet.* And I’m going to make a video of me setting up said studio because WHY NOT. This is an exciting bit of news for us both because when I have this studio I’m going to be able to make WAY MORE MUSIC AND WAY MORE VIDEOS AND WAY MORE AWESOME STUFF FOR YOU. So muahaha.

I’m editing my NaNoWriMo 2016 novel, The Head Games. AND YOU KNOW HOW EDITING IS. But I’m actually pleasantly surprised by how NOT terrible it is??? BUT IT’S ALSO REALLY SHORT** so idk. I basically won’t know anything until I have my mom beta read it because I’m too partial to my cinnamon roll characters to see any flaws whatsoever. :’’’’’) #help

All I want for my birthday is wireless headphones and BOOOOOKS. Also my birthday is on the 26th. Wink wink nudge nudge. ALSO THAT EXCITING THING I MENTIONED IN THE LAST VLOG coincides with my birthday. And this Exciting Thing™ is really only going to affect me although I hope you like it??? HAHA THAT’S ALL I’M SAYING because heyo I’m mysterious and annoying let’s move on.

*awesome when I am LITERALLY BROKE AND IN DEBT because computers and speakers and monitors and audio mixing programs are expensive loooool
**as in 55,000 words??? BUT HEY LOOK AT [insert NYT bestsellers that are less than 55k] << LOOK HOW GREAT THOSE BOOKS WERE HUH



What’s up with YOUR month??

rock on,
abbiee

  1. AAHHH I LOVE YOUR VLOGS ADFJKL;

    STORY STRUCTURE. Even if you don't plot, editing is a million times easier if you have your story structure figured out. Then you know what every part of the book needs to accomplish and you just make little tweaks until it's perfect. And if you get stuck, get a brainstorming buddy! For me, that's my mom xD I hope your editing goes well! <3

  10. Ahhh, I can't wait to see your process setting up your recording studio!!! Also books are indeed expensive and that's why I'm volunteering because the library has a drawing for free books and other cool stuff like that because I am too broke to buy anything AHAHAHAHA. ^.^'

    What the heck your room is so cute right now. What can be done to my room space is VERY limited (seeing as its tiny as ever and I don't have a budget for fairy lights), but I've drawn and planned out everything I want to do once I have a bigger space to work with in the future.xD

Thank the Lord for libraries!! :') That's so cool that you're volunteering! I'm going to volunteer at my library this summer (because believe it or not my library doesn't even have a digital catalog?? LOL I LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN OK)

      AWW THANK YOU. I really love my room but omg I feel ya decorating is really expensive. Like??? WHY DOES ART COST SO MUCH. I'm going to compromise with some of my own (bad) art and photo prints. It's almost finished! EEEP! Thank you so much for watching the vlog, Abigail! :D

  11. Overcommitting = Join my world. I think June will be a month where I do some reevaluating in that area. So not looking forward to it...because it's possible to do everything, right?

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.
