Kaylie's Life in a Blog

It's a blog about my life and other stuff.

Okay, before we even get into the post, I want to apologize for being so damn late. The past two (three?) weeks have been spent moving into Jonathan’s for the summer. We’ve been trying to move me in, clean up the place, and find a new apartment for him. At the end of July, we’ll have to leave here and move somewhere else. Luckily, yesterday we found a good place. We like the people, the building, and we’ll be able to move in there around the same time we have to be out of here. Alright, that’s enough of that. Continue reading

Alright, I’ve waited 10 years for this moment. A pretty room that is everything I  ever hoped. You guys have waited about 2 months for this post. Well, I’ve waited 2 months for this post anyway.

In March 2017, we were finally able to start work on my room. We painted the walls, the ceiling, and the trim. We didn’t replace any hardware or lights, because we just didn’t have the money for it. Mom also really wanted to take the carpet out, but if you knew what the floors were like underneath, you’d understand why I didn’t want my room to have that flooring. Continue reading

I didn’t have time to do the post I wanted to do today, but I should have it up tomorrow or Thursday. The post is gonna be chock-full of pictures, that not only need to be taken but edited as well. I’m really excited for it, the day just got away from me before I could get it done. 
See ya soon!

Jonathan and I began dating when I was a junior in high school and he was a senior. Our relationship moved pretty fast. We talked for only a week before we became a couple, said we loved each other after a month and half, and we had sex for the first time ever only after six months. Before our one year anniversary we almost broke up. For Jonathan’s first year of college, he went to our local community college and lived in his great-grandmother’s house, which was about a 15 minute drive away from me. Honestly, even during that little span of distance, I noticed things were changing. He didn’t come over as often and it didn’t seem like he wanted to come over at all sometimes. Continue reading

The weekend of April 21st, I spent in Galveston with my best friend. Hence the title of this post. I got there pretty late on Friday, cause the traffic gods hate me. We went to a bar to eat and drink a little, my drink was a little too strong, and the live music was a little too country.


Saturday was the best day. We woke up early to go work with Robin’s garden club. Moved some cinder blocks and played with a dog. We had to leave that after only an hour because her friend was having a goodbye party at the beach. Continue reading

Everyone has places they want to go, see, live, etc. And I am no exception. My list is long, crazy, and kinda stupid. But I have goals for this life, and I intend on meeting them. Otherwise, what was the point? Why make plans, why dream, why set goals if you’re never going to try? Right now, school and money are the obstacles. One more year of school at home (hopefully), and I’ll be moving to Savannah to get my bachelors and masters. After those goals are met, the next step is working. Finding a job in Savannah or Atlanta, working, saving money, fixing up a house, and starting our life (yes, Jonathan is included in these plans). Then the next step, which I’m very excited for, is moving overseas. Continue reading

I got to spend the first part of my spring break out of town again. Actually, out of the whole state. My brother and sister-in-law had the idea to rent a cabin in Oklahoma and spend a weekend just drinking and sitting around a bonfire. And what a great idea it was!

Eight of us split the cost of the rental, we all bought groceries and alcohol, and headed out Friday morning, on the 10th of March. It was only about a two-hour drive, and our cabin was located right outside of Turner Falls. Man, was it pretty. Jonathan and I drove with my sister-in-law. It was a short little road trip, but it was still fun. Continue reading

Last May, Jonathan bought us some passes. These passes were to a convention called PAX South. PAX South is a gaming convention, for video games, board games, card games, really, any kind of game. It draws a big crowd from YouTubers and their subscribers. We bought our passes the day they went on sale, and it was probably one of the most exciting things I did that year (besides going to South Padre). The passes were to be sent out in December, a month and few weeks before the convention landed in San Antonio. Continue reading

“Angels are bright still, though the brightest fell.”

This quote is from Macbeth. I actually only kind of like this play, to be honest. I’m not really into dramatic plays, and when it comes to Shakespeare, I definitely prefer the comedies. Anyway, I came upon this quote when we were reading Macbeth in tenth (maybe eleventh?) grade. At the time, I was really struggling with my spiritual self, I didn’t know what to believe. And this quote just stood out to me. I don’t remember who the speaker, Malcolm, is talking to/about, but I know he’s referencing Lucifer’s fall. Continue reading
