Small Adventures

Hello. I’ve been taking some time away from the internet and my computer in general lately, so I haven’t been around to write very much.

I’ve been spending my weekends going on “small adventures” in my area while the weather’s still nice, so here are some photos in lieu of words.

Staying Afloat & Finishing Well | A Summary of the Last Two Months

You may be asking yourself, what happened to Maggie? She wrote one (1) thing about the apocalypse and then dropped off the face of the earth, what gives?

Life. Life is what gives.

It should come as no surprise that the last few months have been full of… happenings that required me to make some temporary adjustments to my life. One of those adjustments was going on an “unplanned indefinite hiatus,” as a band I liked once put it. The quick explanation is that combining work, school, senioritis, and a magnified lack of motivation due to the happenings made things pretty challenging!

But things are different now! I’m graduated (!) and unemployed (?!) which means two obstacles are out of the way for the time being. One of the first things I wanted to do was fall back into my blogging routine, and fall into it I shall.

And what better way to do so than to give a major life update? I promise it won’t all be boring stuff, because I read a lot of books these past few months, played some new video games, and even wrote some words if you can believe it. So onward!

2016: Year In Review

Well, another year is coming to a close. On one hand, it feels like January was just yesterday, but on the other hand, it feels like 20 years have passed in these twelve months.

When I wrote my 2015 summary earlier this year, I had just started blogging. This year, however, with a year of blogging behind me, I’ve been writing more regular updates through my “Best Of” and “Week in Review” posts. Because of that, I’m going to keep my summary pretty much to-the-point, but I’ll link to other blog posts where I discuss the topics more in-depth.

I also really like lists, so get ready for that.

August in Pictures

Is this going to become a regular thing? I don’t know. But right now, it sure is looking like it…

Alright, so there’s a lot going on right now. On Thursday, I moved into Messiah College and am currently being subjected to what feels like a thousand different orientations and a lot of social interaction. Okay, it’s really not that bad, but I’ve been pretty busy this week with packing, moving, and just generally getting ready for the school year.

Because of this, I haven’t had a lot of time to dedicate to blogging. I still wanted to get a post out to you this week though, so I thought I’d share some photos with you, very similar to what I did last month. Unlike July though, which was mostly flowers and nature photos, this one is all from Das Awkscht Fescht, an annual antique car show near my house (and no, don’t ask me how to pronounce it). I’ll admit I don’t know a single thing about cars, but I still had fun taking pictures of them!

Anyways, without further ado, click below to see the pictures!

July in Pictures

I don’t share much of my photography on my blog, but since I’ve been taking a lot of pictures over the past month and because I forgot to write a blog post for this week, I have some for you today!

It’s actually been super hot outside the last two weeks or so – most days the temperature has been up in the 90s, which might not seem like a lot for some, but it’s pretty hot for a Pennsylvanian who prefers milder summers.

Even so, I ventured out of my house to visit a some local parks. On a few of these excursions, I brought my camera with me to take pictures, since many of these parks have beautiful plants, especially flowers. But anyway, that’s enough talking. Click below to see some of my pictures!

Best of April

Hey everyone! Apologies for the somewhat late post – May snuck up on me faster than I thought.

I had a pretty good month of April, and I’m hoping you did too. Sure, it had its highs and lows, but all things considered, it wasn’t as busy as others. Anyway, you probably already know the drill for these posts, so without further ado, here is my Best of April!

April Photo Challenge

As I mentioned in last week’s post, I’m participating in a photo-a-day challenge in the month of April! I won’t be talking about it all month, but since I just finished the first week, I wanted to share some of my photos with you.

Each day has a certain theme or topic to stick do, but aside from that, you’re free to take a picture of whatever you want! I’m having a lot of fun with it so far. Anyway, without further ado, here are my photos from the first week!

Best Of March

I knew this blog post had to be written, but instead I sat and played The Oregon Trail on the Internet Archive. Because my priorities are definitely in order. (Also, in case you’re wondering: I did not make it to Oregon. Because again, poor planning.)

Anyway, my weird gaming habits aside, happy April, everyone! I hope your March was awesome  – I know mine was! So without further ado, let’s get right to it: Here’s my best of March!
