VLOG: What’s Up, July? (I Cut All My Hair Off + I’m Rewriting A Novel + My Life Needs To Be Reorganized)


IT’S JULY ALREADY?? I’m confused too, my friend. Summer is technically here, but it sure as heck doesn’t feel that way to me. LIFE HAS ALSO BEEN CRAZY BUSY. And I know you hate these kinds of blog posts but hey – everyone needs to blab about themselves from time to time, ammiright?? Here we go.

I cut all my hair off. YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT. If you haven’t already heard about this on Instagram and/or Twitter, SCROLL ON DOWN TO THE VIDEO AND LOOK AT MY BUTCHERED HAIR. It’s all gone and I still can’t believe it. But if you think I’m spontaneous enough to just impulse-cut my hair HAHA THINK AGAIN. I’ve been premeditating this haircut for the past 4 years and I donated all 20-something inches of my freakishly long hair to Wigs For Kids, which is a fabulous organization (and wayyyy better than Locks Of Love if you’re into donating hair – just saying.) SO YEAH THAT WAS FUN.

I’m working on a new (old?) manuscript. It’s a new project, YES, but I feel strange saying that it’s a new manuscript. BECAUSE IT’S ACTUALLY QUITE ANCIENT. Back there with dinosaurs and what-not. But!! I’m rewriting the whole thing sentence-by-sentence (HELP ME HOLY GHOST) and also implementing new STRUCTURE!! *whacks rule on hand* Because why not.



This blog is about to turn into a construction zone. But don’t worry!! Not much is going to change around here. I need to get a new template for my own solace (anxieties about code crashing lowkey KEEP ME UP AT NIGHT) and I’m going to be making a new fancy little logo thang (aw yis) so PARDON THE DUST and if my blog is down at any point this month – FEAR NOT.

My new computer is on its way!! AND I AM FREAKING OUT. AND I AM BROKE. AND I AM HAPPY. Pretty soon my home studio is going to be up and running which means = more music and videos and GASP: MUSIC VIDEOS coming your way!! Stick around, my friend.

Summer is already flying by and it’s not going to slow down at all. KIND OF LIKE EVERY YEAR??? But ugh idk I’m trying to get a grasp on my life more this month. I’m trying to come up with a system in which I can DO LITERALLY EVERYTHING yet not feel burnt out?????? < question marks because I haven’t really found a solution. BUT I’M LOOKING, FRIEND. And life is good.




What’s up with YOUR month?

rock on,
abbiee

  2. AH YOUR HAIR IS SO LOVELY. Seriously, I was a huge fan of your long hair, but you must look incredible with any hairstyle, because this one is so, so cute, too. ;)

    And... you say aesthetic like aesTHetic?? I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE. Apparently the quote on quote "correct" way of saying it is aesTetic, but the t-h sound is just so much more lovely to speak and listen to. :P

    I'm sososo excited to see what you do with your studio!! I expect manyyy pictures of the process. :D

  5. Your haircut is the cutest thing ever. I have a friend with extra curly hair who cute her hair really short recently. I always want to rub my finger through it and pat her head now. Thankfully she doesn't mind.

    I'm looking forward to seeing you blogs new header! And yass! A new laptop is what I need as well.

  21. I think I said it on Instagram, but GIRL YOUR HAIR IS GORGEOUS. You're making me want to cut mine that short one day xD I'd love to donate, but once my hair gets past the bottom of my shoulder blades it's impossible to wash and comb (thick hair problems :P)

    I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW YOU MAKE YOUR STUDIO ASDJKFL; You're seriously inspiring <3

    Yes I am indeed doing Camp Nano and working on a semi-secret Snow White retelling for a contest. (The plot is secret, not the fact that I'm doing it! :D)

    Also YOU'RE CHANGING YOUR BLOG DESIGN. Whaaaaat? It is so pretty but I'll trust you to get an even better one. Seriously, your blog is just gorgeous. #goals

    I cannot wait for the new music things and the studio tour and blog design... Also GOOD LUCK REWRITING YOUR NOVEL.

    I've always wanted really short hair, but I'll probably only do that once I graduate lol OR LIKE EVEN DYE IT. I think it'd be cool to like...dye the ends purple? And then when I don't like it I can get all my hair cut short idk
