                                                                                  I IS BACK                                                                                                                 HELLER.


How do you guys like the new design? Or do you like totally, total hate it? (That’s okay too, btw)

OMGEEE, I’m super, super, SUPA glad to be back you guys. It seems like forever since I sent out that sad post saying I was going on a “short” hiatus. I don’t know about you guys but there was nothing short about about that hiatus. I just had had a lot of crap to sort through and I never thought I would be that blogger that went on a hiatus to get her stuff together because, pfft, I’m awesome and I always have my stuff together. But now I feel revilitalkzed, fresh, and new, and ready to start with a fresh new start! Nothing can stand in my way now! (Pfft, except maybe….me.)


I don’t know guys, but it’s just like lately I’ve been feeling really lazy and…anti-sociable. (Well THAT technically isn’t anything new. I’m kind of always like that…) When I first started this blog I honestly never thought that I would be having this much fun doing it. And meeting all of you wonderful peeps reading this right now has had a lot to do with it.  I feel bad when I can’t be all sociable and blog hop. It’s like, I have it on my schedule and everything to do it but sometimes…. it just doesn’t happen because #LIFE and #BUSY and #AINTNOBODYGOTTIMEFORTHAT


You guys rock my socks so hard and I really want to visit you guys but it just makes me feel so bad when I can’t.

But I think the real issue here lines within me which means IT’S ALL MY FREAKING FAULT.

So, I’d just like to apologize if I’ve been a major fail whale lately and haven’t been able to visit your lovely blogs lately. It’s not that I’m neglecting able of my wonderful peeps, it’s just that…..I IS A LAZY SOMETIMES AND CAN’T BE COUNTED ON FOR ANYTHANG.

That is all.


But I promise that is all going to change because I’m all caught up and organized. So that hiatus really did do me some good. 🙂 OH! And, how could I forget?? I have to tell you guys about my good news! Wellllll…. *insert drum sound effects here*


It’s no secret that I’ve been a jobless hobo for almost two years, and I really want to see the world and better my Spanish before I start really working, so what better time to do that than RIGHT NAH?? Don’t get excited yet because nothing is set yet. I still have to go through my last step, which is to have an hour and a half Skype interview which I scheduled last night for next Wednesday! I would like to ask you guys to pray for me!! Pray really hard for me that I get it! There are only 22 positions open for Panama so I hope to be one of those!

Now it's your turn 2

Like I said, I MISSED YOU GUYS  SO. FREAKING. HARD. So, tell me how you’ve been? Anything new? Any cool books you’ve read lately that you just can’t wait to talk about? New jobs? Bad books? TELL ME ALL YO!

  1. Great to have you back! I just came back from another interview that is probably not going anywhere, so I’ll keep looking. Still waiting to hear from our agent for confirmation on the sale of our cabin so keeping my fingers crossed. Anyway, looking forward to see what you’ve been reading since your hiatus.

    • Just keep looking girl! One day, you’re going to get a super cool and awesome job and all of this that you’re going through now will have been worth the wait! I’m praying for you girl! <3

  2. Glad you are back and never feel bad for needing a break, we all need them from time to time. As for your other news, that is awesome!! Good luck with the interview!!

    • Thanks Ali! 🙂 It makes me feel a lot better that you guys are so supportive and that you understand! <3 It’s hard sometimes so you’re totally right! It IS good to take a break every now and then! I hope you’re enjoying your break as well! Get some rest! 🙂

    WELCOME BACK, KEIONDA! Coming back from a hiatus is always the best. You feel refreshed and ready to go. I’m so happy you have returned even though I’m a newb to your blog you’ve always been a passionate commenter to my posts. I can’t wait to see what you post!

    Peace Corps sounds so exciting! I hope it works out for you c: haha I’ve been up to literally nothing. I’m hoping I’ll be moving back to Canada soon though!

    • Hiiiii Kynndra-jo! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! 🙂 And yes! I love visiting you guys because you lovely ladies always know how to keep it real and give us what we need to know<3 And I’m super nervous! My interview is coming up but I shall keep you guys posted! 🙂

  4. Yay! I am so glad you’re back and your new design looks awesome! I love the orange colours and the logo’s and nice touches everywhere.
    And good luck with that interview! I hope you’ll get the position! It sounds like a job you’re really excited for and like a great chance to see the world and improve your Spanish. Keep us updated about how the interview goes!

    • THANK YOU LOLLAAA:) I did the design myself but felt so amateurish because I have no idea how the heck to do a design and graphics?? PFFT. So thank you girlie! I’ll let you guys know how everything goes with the interview! <3

    • YAYYY! Thank you girl! I was debating on what the heck to do with it so I just was like… “I’m just going to put it on the side… see how that looks…” And BOOM. There you go. Teehee!

  5. I absolutely love the new look Keionda! It’s so clean with wonderful graphics! And I’m so happy for you about the Peace Corps – I wish you the best of luck with the interview. It sounds really exciting!

    • THANK YOU SIIISSTAAAAA! <3 I just needed something new and decided to do that while I was on my break. 🙂 Thank you girl! I really hope I do good in the interview!

    Nice spiffy new design. I like the earthy natural look you chose. Good for you to go for the Peace Corps and your goal to learn more Spanish. Hope the last interview goes well.

    Not much going on for me. Gotta family wedding.

    Mostly engaging books though I did manage to tick off an author b/c I gave her a 3 star review. 😉 Life can be entertaining.

    • Thank you Sophia! I’m so glad that you like it! I was so nervous that you guys were going to be all…meh but yay! You like it!:) That makes me super happy! And I’m going to for sure keep you guys posted on everything that happens! My interview is next Wednesday so pray for me! A WEDDING?? OMG WEDDING CAKE! I’ve been wanting wedding cake so bad!! And…that author can SUCK IT. If she can’t take the review, then she shouldn’t be writing books. Not everyone is going to like your books. Pfft. Don’t even sweat it.

  7. Welcome back! I’m praying that you get the position. PC is a great opportunity to pay it forward, so I’m glad you’re interested in doing it. I was gonna try it after I graduated from SUSCC, but I took an analyst job that I now wished I hadn’t. I wanted to travel the world, but then everything started happening that kept me here. Just think positive and I’m sure you’ll do great in the Skype interview.

    • TANK YOU LOVE! I appreciate all the prayers I can get! And don’t sweat it girl! At least you knew what you wanted to do and you and now you at least have a good job which is WAY MORE than what I have right now! So good for you too! <3 My interview for PC is on Wednesday so….*shivers*

  8. Welcome back!

    Good luck with your interview! My fingers are crossed for you <3

    The site design looks great, I love the colours 🙂 the orange totally pops.

    • Watttllleee! Thank you girl! It’s been so long since I’ve been around to everyone’s blogs so I’m going to have to change that like NOW. 🙂

  9. She’s baaaaack! 🙂 Hey girl, I’ve missed your sassy self around here! 🙂 It’s great to see a post from you again. And your news is WAY exciting!! I’m sure you’re going to rock your interview and have good news for us in no time at all. What an exciting opportunity!

    • I MISSED YOU GUYS SOOOO MUCH MORE! I missed talking with you guys and catching up! Thank you so much! I’m trying not to freak out too much about it but it should be fine! <3 Thank you so much for all of your positive vibes and prayers! <3

  10. YAY YOU’RE BACK!!! I’ve been more absent than usual too and even though its healthy to take a break, I always feel sad and lonely without you guys! I guess I need to find a better way to balance school, blogging, and interacting with the book blogging community, eh?

    • I was starting to get a little depressed when I didn’t talk to you guys! I was like…WHAT SHALL I DO WITH MY LIFE NOW?….It got bad but I’m so glad to be back! And I agree! How the heck are we going to be able to handle all of this stuff?? #timemanagementisourfriend 😉

    • Thank you MEELLLL! <3 I’m super excited for the interview! I’m not a fan of heat but I live in the south… so hopefully its not’ be too bad? ….ehhh…

  11. Welcome back girl, and yes I love this new design! The Peace Corps is something I wanted to do, but that was after I had my son and there was no way I was leaving my baby, so I’m so excited for you! You got this girl, I’ll definitely be putting your crazy behind in my prayers, because HELLO Panama! Send me lots of goodies once you get there haha

    • Thanks guh! <3 Thank you for paying for me girl! This is a super, SUPA important decision to make so…. yeah! My interview is Wednesday so keep me in your prayers! I'll of course be sending you A TON of goodies chick! <3 xoxoxo

  12. Girl I know the state of being unemployed like nobodies business. I was unemployed for quite some time, almost 3 yrs to be exact and it was tough. So I totally understand your pain. Your in my prayers and welcome back!

    • Wow! 3 years? Man, but at least you can understand where I’m going from because JAZ, #THESTRUGLEISREAL…. Thank you for praying for me girlie! YOU DA BOMB DIGGITY FRESH! xoxo

  13. OMFG KEI. OMFG. Your blog! YOUR BLOG! It’s absolutely beautiful!
    I’ve had bouts of unemployment over the years when I was in my early twenties and it can get really disheartening. People forget how different the world economy is now too and it’s a real battle just to get your foot in the door. Two years isn’t long though lovely girl and I have no doubt it won’t be long until you’re working and off on your next life adventure <3

    • Awwww Kels! TANK YOUUUU! I’m so happy you guys like it so much because…I was like meh… I’m done with decorating all the time. Time to put this baby out there again. 😉 The economy is SO BAD! So i’m looking for jobs everywhere so pray for one and wish me luck, love! <3 xoxo I hope everything is going awesome with you! <3

    Welcome back to our world once again <3 Ahaha I hope you will be able to get right back into the ways of blogging and absolutely love it. Also, this new design is ROCKIN'! I'm feeling it so much and really like the designs and images <3 So beautiful. Also, praying for you with the Panama situation! Keep us updated.

    • TANK YOU LIVVVVV! I’ve missed you guys so much! <3 And it didn’t help that I was super nervous to get back into the swing of things because I had stopped blogging for like a month but you guys are SO epical and SO supportive! *blusehs* THANK YOUU! <3 xoxoxo
