VLOG: What's Up, September? (I Got A MacBook Pro + I'm Still Rewriting That Novel + I'm In Serious Debt! Send Help!!)


Yo, friend! You know what I really hate? The fact that IT FEELS LIKE FREAKING OCTOBER OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW. It's absolutely insane. But whatever!! I have exciting news to flail about this month!! Well, some of it is exciting. Some of it is disheartening. But we'll cross that bridge when we burn it, as I like to say. 

I got a MacBook Pro! WHAT THE HECK. HOW DID THAT EVEN HAPPEN. DO I HAVE MONEY TO BURN??? The answer is no -- I'm just super SUPER in debt now!! Haha! Yay! But guys, I NEEDED this laptop and I don't hesitate to say it. My other one was driving me up a wall and just not performing the way I needed it to (ex: shutting off randomly without warning and losing everything um HOW ABOUT NO.) Watch the vlog below if you want to see the new shiny one and hear me rap MacDaddy (no kidding I do.) 

I finished my recording studio and I made a video about itGo check it out!! I'm super pumped to start making some new music for y'all. I just took a bunch of ukulele cover requests on Instagram (FEEL FREE TO REQUEST SOMETHING IN THE COMMENTS OF THIS POST, TOO!) and I've been thinking a lot about epic trailer music lately... mUAHAHA. That's all I'm going to say for now. ;) COOL STUFF COMING SOON.  

Rewriting books takes wayyyy longer than you'd think. I WANTED TO BE DONE WITH THIS NOVEL AT THE END OF JULY. But...that didn't happen. I'm a busy gal, what can I say??? But I'm making progress and I really hope to finish it by the end of this month because October is going to be 100% dedicated to researching and outlining my NaNo novel (SQUEAK!) and then November is obviously... haha... *distant nervous sobbing* 

My ukulele cover mashup of Riptide / We Don't Believe What's On TV is now available in music stores!! There were some weird complications when I first released this song back in May because I thought for some reason that you can't sell mashups??? BUT I WAS WRONG. You just have to buy a cover license for all the songs included in said mashup. (This time it was obviously just two songs but if it was more than that...let's just say things would get expensive. LOLOLOL.) But NOW this song is available on iTunes, Amazon, and everywhere music is sold AND ALSO SPOTIFY. <3 Gotta love Spotify. It's what keeps me sane. :''''') 

I'm running off to be with the ocean for a few days but THERE WILL STILL BE A POST NEXT SATURDAY. I wouldn't dream of abandoning you lovely people!! ALSO ALSO I'm thinking of filming a video while I'm away and making like a cool little travel short film when I come back??? WHAT DO YOU THINK. Tell me in the comments if you'd like to see that!!  




What's up with YOUR month? 

rock on, 
abbiee

p.s. new computer, new font! what do you think? 
if you absolutely hate it, I'll figure something else 
out but I hope you like it because I do. xD

  2. Oh, I would LOVE for it to feel like October right now. I live in Texas, so it still feels like summer. It only cooled down a few days and now its back up to hot. :/

    Anyway, your posts are all so amazing! Love your videos! <3 <3

    Gotta say I'm an HP girl, but its good you got a computer that works. It is VERY ANNOYING when a computer doesn't work.

    I live your background. All the books. :D

    Good luck with the rewritting. It can be hard. I've done that A LOT! I'm working on being self-published by around this time next year. *crosses fingers*

    Also, if you truly are in debt, look up Dave Ramsey. He's got good advice. :D

    Nothing wrong with flip phones. I would actually prefer that over a smart phone.

    Oh, and a vacation video would be cool if you want to do it. If you want to just enjoy the vacation, then don't worry about that.

    Have an awesome day! <3

    2. Where I live we just got a bit of wind and rain. Lots of rain, but we're drying out well. Can't say the same for Houston, unfortunately. Or all the other coastal cities of Rockport, Port Aransas (which I've been to before. From what's being said, its all gone.) Lots of places were devastated and now another Hurricane might have the potential of showing up in the Gulf.

      I know, so many people are obsessed with smart phones. I actually don't have a phone yet because I didn't have a need for one, but because I'll be on my parents' phone plan for a while, I'll probably have to get a smart phone. I just don't know why people are so obsessed with their phones. XD

    3. Oh, good, I'm glad to hear y'all are alright!! I know, it's so horrible what's been happening in Houston and those other cities you mentioned. :( So many prayers for all of them. <333 I KNOW RIGHT WHY ARE PEOPLE SO OBSESSED LOL I don't get it either. xD

  8. LOVED THE VLOG (like always)!!!!!
    I'm writing a book called "The Room" right now. I was writing another book and had gotten quite a ways in it, but I didn't like how it was going, so I started another one. I started writing "The Room" in the middle of August and I'm on chapter 5 and I LOVE HOW ITS TURNING OUT!!! I'm not very exciting about editing it though.
    AHHHHHH. The Ocean!! Can I go with you???!!!

  9. AAAHHH YOUR VLOGS ARE SO AMAZING. And your new design O.O It is SO beautiful.

    I was just kinda flailing through this video and your other one because they were so awesome xD And I'm sorry about your old computer, but Macbooks are the best. I have yet to get one (#moneyproblems), but when I need a new computer... ;)

    I can't wait for that blog post on rewrites! I recently had to put aside an idea that was driving me crazy to follow a new plot bunny, so I totally know how much rewrites can sting :P

  11. So much agreeing with this whole blog ... also, you have so many different shades of mint/turquoise/cyan and it is my most favorite color ever ... so I was peacefully thrilled the whole time. :) also, amen to every. single. word. you spoke on rewriting. It gives me life and kills me at the same time. I'm rewriting for the second time and trying to hold up school and work and everything else and let's just say I don't actually do that much rewriting right now. Welp.

    Anyhoo. .. nice to see you again this month! Hugs to you as we enter fall for real (secret: it's my favorite season ... even more than summer, don't kill me...)

    1. IT'S MY FAVORITE COLOR TOO!!! *high fives* aw that makes me so happy omg 😊 REWRITING IS HARD!! And tbh just making time for writing is super difficult for me too...it's like there's always something in your way!! ugh! frustrating! NICE TO SEE YOU TOO DEAR <3333 I do like fall...but WHY CAN'T IT STAY SUMMER FOR LONGER WAAAAHHH. I think the real reason why I dread fall is because I know what's in store for winter *shivers/cringes* lololol πŸ˜…I hope your September is lovely!! thank you for watching!

  15. CONGRATS ON THE MAAAAAC!

    Dude I want a Mac SO BAD like you don't even know, but I can't go into debt for it (right now literally all my time is devoted to building up a good enough portfolio for a biggie scholarship so I won't need student loans). I've been saying prayers that I can get a Mac without paying for it! (Something similar to this has happened to me before so who knows? Tryna pray big out here lol)

    You sound like you are just thriving and doing so many awesome things. Proud of you. Proud to see where you are. Proud to see you doing so much of what you love. It's inspiring ❤

  16. The room tour thing you mentioned made me laugh! You just need to film on a few other walls to get the whole view of your room into the backgrounds of the vlogs you've filmed. TOO FUNNY. Your bubbly energy is my favorite thing!

    RIGHT. How the heck is it September? I thought this month was going to be August because I thought August was July.

    Congrats on the MAC! WOO!

  17. Ahhh, another member of the flip phone club!!! *high fives* (I actually don't even own a phone, but for the longest time our extra flip phone was the one I would use when going someplace. Unfortunately our family's flip phones are getting replaced by iphones...not sure how I feel about that. :/)

    Your vlogs are so fun and I'm looking forward to any and all new videos you put out. :D Congrats on a new laptop!!!

  18. Enjoy your time at the beach! And good luck with the rewriting. I'm in that valley, too. Don't have a clue what I'm doing, and so I'm just crawling along...like a snail, but a snail doesn't actually crawl...so...

  19. LOL YOU SAID SEPTEMBER AND I WAS LIKE WAHT WAIT A SEC (even though I wrote the date as October yesterday. like o.?)

    AHH AHH AHH IT'S ON SPOTIFY YASSSSS

    OMGNS I CAN'T WAIT FOR YOUR ROOM TOUR. From what I've seen so far [aka, like a LOT of it XD], IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

    I need a computer SO. BAD. Right now, I'm using the family one, but it has a weird processing system and like I can't download any software???

    (also am being kinda picky, but I think I liked your old font better? this one looks more bulky and less aesthetic, in my opinion. but idk?)

  22. To Abbie E.....Time is so very important to me...sometimes I find myself timing each activity I do during the morning so I do not waste one minute...I sense that you also value time and control it well.

    I clicked on joining "the waffle club", but I did see anything to sign up with...anyway...here is a great waffle tip....when adding the eggs to the recipe...separate the egg whites and beat them till stiff...then fold the egg whites into the recipe as the last step. This keeps the waffle very light and yummy! Bye for now , Miss Mary (this took 1 minute 53 seconds)
