thirty day blog challenge three day catch up marathon.

I'm terrible. Really really terrible.

this is my "WHOOPS" face.

I missed TWO days of the thirty day blog challenge. In my defense, I've been studying for finals, and I had an awful migraine last night. So in light of this, you get THREE days in ONE. Lucky duckies. 

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 10: something you're afraid of.

I'm afraid of a lot of things. Seriously, I'm a big ole scaredy cat. I'm scared of:
-squid. I've had a few too many nightmares about them, and I'm scarred for life. I didn't say my fears were normal, okay?
-styrofoam. This isn't just an "oh my gosh, styrofoam is bad for the environment...and stuff" kind of thing. Everything about styrofoam repulses me. The way it sounds, the way it feels... EVERYTHING. If you ever get near me with the stuff, I will start crying and then I'll proceed to run away, along with some screaming. Ask my brothers. It's quite sad, really.
-getting fat. I'm really concerned about this happening to me. I just like food so much.

there are sooooo many other things that I'm scared of. You know, typical things, like the dark. But I'll keep this short and sweet since I have two other days to do.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 11: a quote you love.

I'm going to admit something. I am a quote junkie. I LOVE quotes. So I'm going to give you more than one, because that's how much I love you.

"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need: a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worthy of the name, someone to love and to love you, a cat, a dog, a pipe or two, and enough to eat and enough to wear."

"For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on Earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you."

"There is pleasure in the pathless woods. There is a rapture on the lonely shore. There is society where none intrudes by the deep sea and music in its roar. I love not man the less, but nature more."

The next two sort of go hand in hand, and I think everyone (including myself) needs to remember them.
"Be where you are, not where you think you should be."

"Love when you're ready, not when you're lonely."

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 12: something you don't leave your house without.

I do not leave my house without a book or my iPod. You never know if you might get a chance to read while you're out, right? Right. There are two trillion reasons to carry a book around with you wherever you go. Also, I try not to leave the house without my handy dandy dictionary, but I sometimes forget it. And my iPod? The same reason. I am always listening to music, and you never know when you'll have a chance to whip out that bad boy!

And that's all for my thirty day blog challenge three day catch up marathon! That was wordy... oh well. I'll be back tomorrow, with a normal post (as an apology for missing two days) plus day thirteen of the blog challenge!

remember that one time when I said that someday maybe I would put
pictures on this blog that WEREN'T from my webcam?
Yeah, still waiting for that day.
xoxo, Sophie.


  1. I am really digging the scary clown picture in the background.

  2. Oh thanks. And thanks for drawing that and leaving it on my pillow, years ago.
