3 things about myself

  • I love baking. Having a peanut allergy has forced me to make my own baked goods and get good at it.

  • I actually don’t really like cake but I always think I do. I make a cake. I think I like cake. I try a piece. I don’t like it. Then the cake cycle repeats.
  • I hate the smell of chocolate cake. I’ve purposefully left the house because a chocolate cake was baking.

I think I’m in a baking mood. The Cake Boss theme song has been stuck in my head all day.

Questions

Stella’s questions

  1. What is your zodiac? I have an Aries sun, Leo moon and Cancer rising. I’ve been kind of zodiac obsessed lately, it’s so fun to see if it actually comes true and how people of the same signs are similar.
  2. What is your favourite season? I used to really love fall, but I enjoyed last spring and summer a lot more than the fall.
  3. Do you have any pets? If so, tell us about them! I have 2 cats and a dog. They are kind of annoying a lot of the time but I still love them.
  4. What is your favourite band/musician? Beyoncé, Troye Sivan and Amy Winehouse.
  5. What is your favourite object in your bedroom? My bed?

Alli’s questions

  1.  What has been your favourite age so far? Why? I don’t really know, I’m too young for this 😂 Let’s go with 5 because I can kinda remember that and I remember going to Disney World and can’t pick out any bad things from that year LOL
  2.  If you had to be stuck in a room with one person for 72 hours, who would it be? I don’t know if I would drive myself crazier alone than if I was with someone. I feel like if I chose anyone I would get really angry at them then we’d both just end up mad.
  3.   What’s one of your guilty pleasures? Lattes. I have a bad latte addiction and a desire to learn latte art.
  4.  What’s something you should never look up on google images? Have you looked this up before? Basically anything. All Google image searches go bad at some point.
  5.   Who? What? Where? When? and Why? Me? A person? In Canada? At 11:30 am? Because I’m alive and here?

Beatrice’s questions

  1.  After a bad day, who’s the first person you go to?  My mum or one of my close friends.
  2. What’s something you’re scared of? Fish, death, and being upside down.
  3. What do you think of my new book, Into the Shadows? 😅😅😅 I’m sorry, I had to… I read some of the preview on Amazon and it looks interesting! I applaud you for writing a book, I think I’d get really bored of it.
  4. What’s the last thing you ate? Tikka masala curry! Curry is my comfort food.
  5.  If you were stranded on an island, what are the top three things you’d HAVE to have with you? A helicopter to get off the island. A pilot to fly the helicopter. And some food so I don’t get hangry and make the pilot mad since they’d be my only way out.

7 things about myself

  • I dance.

I’ve kind of talked about this before, but I’ll go into it a bit. I started dancing when I was about 3 and just learnt to walk. I took ballet for a bit then when I was 5 I started jazz dance, too! Then we moved and I did gymnastics for a bit until I realized I couldn’t get very far without ever going upside down. I started ballet again when I was 13 and now I’m in competitive jazz and tap!

  • I’m actually a really terrible dancer.

If it hasn’t been choreographed, I am really bad LOL I sort of just jump around so no freestyling for me.

  • Oh and from the first one, too, I hate being upside down.

Like really, really hate it. One of my greatest fears.

  • I love Anne of Green Gables.

Those books were my life for a little while. Love everything about them and everything that has to do with them.

  • I have a bad case of Wanderlust.

I should do a post on this?! For years I’ve been making a mental list of places I really want to go to in my life, so yes I will make a post then it won’t be a mental list anymore.

  • I used to be really obsessed with horses.

That was all I would read about, so now I know lots about different breeds and some horse care.

  • I sort of learnt to ride in Kentucky.

The pony I had was really stubborn and old and fat and wouldn’t move LOL I was also slightly terrified so I didn’t get very far in my riding.

 

My nominees

The Bold And The Bitchy – Because I find her posts entertaining.

Cailia’s Report Card – She has great tips and I enjoy her Instagram posts!

Life of a Teenage Ranter – Just one word – yes. I can relate lol

Starting The Blog / First Post!

Hello, hello.

This is the first post, yay! I’m so excited to start writing here and get this all set up.

Let’s talk about the blog.

I’ve always wanted to start a blog. When I was about 8 years old my brother and I had one with our only readers being our aunt and grandmother, but we kept it up for a little while. Often I’ve read blogs on lifestyle and fashion and thought about making my own but never really attempted or had the motivation to actually start, until a couple days ago. I was looking around to see if there were any blogs or stories from people who were homeschooling through high school to see how they did things. Mostly everything I found was from the parents point of view and all about curriculum with nothing about life, then sparked the idea to write about what it’s really like to be homeschooled through high school.

Getting the blog set up.

I was pretty impatient about getting it set up so I got to work quickly. First looking through blogs for inspiration and talking to my friend about getting her blog set up and writing. Then I made a list of topics I will probably cover here and some blog post ideas and then set up the website!

The name challenge.

I am terrible at naming things. I like to think I’m good at it, but let’s be honest, I can’t name a thing. I searched through Pinterest for lists of cool words, looked up words that start with P for alliteration, but nothing jumped out at me. Then P.S It’s Peri just kind of popped into my mind and it stuck. After making sure it didn’t mean anything I really didn’t want it to imply I decided to go with it!

Choosing a theme and colour palette.

This was actually the easiest part because I had a good picture in my mind that the blog would be fairly photography heavy to encourage me to take more pictures and for somewhere to post some of my favourites. Then the colour palettes came premade with this blog theme and one of them was pretty similar to the colours in my Instagram feed so I figured that was the best choice.

What I hope to accomplish with the blog.

This is to show others who are going to or are currently homeschooling through high school what it’s like from my perspective, with all honesty because it’s not always sunshine and unicorns. And to share with the world my life not doing things the common way.

Here begins my journey as a writer and the start to a new adventure!

 P.S. It’s Peri
