Random Life Update: November

Hello everyone! Here at the Reschly house we are covered in grease and drowning in sweets. That means only one thing - Hanukah has arrived! Originally I was going to do my traditional post about it, but as it is already the sixth night and I'm too tired to do a whole different post, I'll … Continue reading Random Life Update: November

Looking back on DOTL – Three Year Anniversary

Three years ago, I sat in my little room amidst pepper plants, succulents, unfinished stories, and encouraging notes stuck to my pink wall with bits of tape. My computer stood in front of me and my hands ran across the keyboard only to end up in the same place - the backspace key. I was … Continue reading Looking back on DOTL – Three Year Anniversary

The Day the Sugar Ran Out

As a rule, we are healthy eaters. Most of the time we don’t have sugar in the house and we limit the amount of junk food. There are, however, exceptions such as moving. If you have been following my blog the last few months, you’ll know that we are at the end of a very … Continue reading The Day the Sugar Ran Out

Random Life Update: October 2021 (aka month of chaos)

October was supposed to be a happy, peaceful month full of celebrating and joy. In our brilliant plans, we were going to have arrived at our new home in Utah, closed and moved in - all before my eighteenth birthday on the 10th. Unfortunately, life rarely goes according to plans. (I am sorry that this … Continue reading Random Life Update: October 2021 (aka month of chaos)

A De-Energized Writer, Halloween Protests, Guinea Pigs and Ketchup: Realities of Life After a Move

I had been doing great. The first two weeks of the competition were a breeze. I finished novella and short story … Continue reading A De-Energized Writer, Halloween Protests, Guinea Pigs and Ketchup: Realities of Life After a Move

Random Life Update: April

Wow, another month nearly over! It really is crazy how time flies. April flew by with a flurry of rain, research, boredom, tea, reading, lots of stevia-coated-ice and gum. 😉 I’m really not sure what to write here. I’ve started this post like four times and just keep on deleting my attempts ‘cause they aren’t … Continue reading Random Life Update: April

You Know You’ve Moved A Lot When…

Your friends and family aren’t surprised when you announce another move and are always asking, “Hey, where are you moving next? You’re a pro at packing and unpacking. You can’t believe it when people talk about growing up in ONE house and rarely leaving the state. You move instead of taking vacations. Your online shopping … Continue reading You Know You’ve Moved A Lot When…

A Day In My Life

Miss Rosy Marr, you are my blogging inspiration. 😛 Rosy did a blog post about a day in her life, which inspired me to do one as well! (Sorry, Rosy, I keep stealing your ideas....) 9:15 AM I (reluctantly) wake up and headed downstairs for breakfast with my family. 10:00 I go outside for my … Continue reading A Day In My Life
