onward, 2018


A couple days late on this tangible reflection, but that’s okay. New Year’s posts are some of my favorites to write just because they give me a great excuse to go down the nostalgia rabbit-hole that is this blog.

Following up on last year, here’s what I did and what I’ll do (+ some bonus 2018 pictures). Continue reading

Moving Forward, 2017

It’s been an eventful year, as always. It was a sound wave of up and downs, and I don’t think I ever truly understood how much could happen within a short amount of time until this fall after starting school.

interesting + eventful are mild words to describe it

2015 has been an interesting year.

This is the of the most drastic roller-coaster years I’ve had so far- the ups and downs of it were so intense that sometimes I ended up with a little whiplash.  Continue reading

This Is A Short Post To End This Seemingly-Short Year



I haven’t written on this blog since October.


See, right about now I could easily pull out about fifty billion excuses for why I haven’t been keeping up in the blogging world for the past two-ish months.

But I’m not going to.

Because right here and right now, as I sit typing up this last blog post of mine for 2014, I am deciding that I will no longer dwell on what has happened in the past.

Yes, I did hit a wall regarding creativity- but that’s okay, because things are starting to clear up a bit now and my brain is slowly getting back to that place where I can really dream again (*knocks on wood*). It’s going to be 2015, and I’m definitely going to do my best to make it absolutely fabulous.

So, here’s the question I’ve been asking myself: where do I want to go with Wordy&Nerdy?

I do know that at this very point, I’m not entirely pleased with the direction it’s going. I mean, yeah, I like a few ideas, but there are others that I want to change, too. I want to be more honest with my writing, I want to work more on really finding my voice, and I think I want to try to write more for myself.

One exciting thing I currently have planned is a totally new blog design. I’m working on all the pieces to it right now, so I’ll hopefully have it up very soon! 🙂

Hopefully I’ll get back into the rhythm of writing and going through other lovely peoples’ blogs as it was earlier this year, because though I’m a little out of it at the moment, I would love love love to get that back.

This entire year has literally gone by before I could register it, and honestly I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing; however, I do know that 2015 is going to be full of crazy fantastic adventures and I’ll be making tons of incredible memories the whole time.

This concludes my very short blog post to end a seemingly-very-short year. Thank you to every single one of you who has taken the time to read some of my writing, because writing on this blog (as well as my absence from it) has contributed to making me realize how much I love to create things. Have an absolutely fantabulous year!
