My content, or lack thereof

Hello all, this is just a quick post to remind you that I still exist.

I love creating content for people, and even though I’m just getting off the ground, I put a lot of time and thought into what I post. It’s been a little over a month since I posted something on here, and even then, posting was not as frequent as I wish it was. I can tell you 100% honestly that I’m working hard to change that. There’s one huge project I’m working on, and several changes should be coming to this blog in order to improve. As of now, the circumstances in my life have prevented me from doing all that I want to do, but I no longer want to have that stop me from making good, frequent content.

I hope you guys understand! Although I have yet to make a formal post about this, I now have social media that should have some other interesting things on there as well. I’m on Facebook as /thelikewisepage and on Instagram as @likewiseofficial.see you guys around, and I’m sure you’ll love that big project I have in store!

What my life has been recently

Hello all! Whatever has brought you to this blog to continue reading my posts, whether it be my life, my traveling, or my writing, I greatly appreciate you being here.

As of right now, posting on here has been difficult. It’s not that I don’t want to post, it’s that I don’t have much time to do it. College admissions, schoolwork, my writing, and taking care of my mental health have been my top priorities and have thus been taking up the most of my time. Honesty is beautiful when it comes to my fans and my viewers, and honestly, life has been very stressful these past several weeks. Hence, I’ve found myself with the inability to post nearly as much as I want to.

That being said, I expect things to pick up in a few weeks, at least. Finishing high school on the 26th of this May, I’ll have a lot more time and energy to focus on my blogging and my writing career—my passion in life and the main thing I want to do with myself.

To make things clear, I’m not going on a hiatus or anything; I just think I owe you guys an explanation, and that’s what this is. I’ve made a promise to always be as open and honest as possible with my viewers, and even though I’m in the beginning stages, this is no exception. I appreciate all of the support you have given me thus far, and will continue to give me in the future!

My Quebec Trip – Prelude

Hello all! There is a big surprise that I’ve been waiting to unveil, and I think now is the perfect time to do so. For a few days before and during spring break, I, my brother, and several other students from school will be taking a class trip to Quebec, Canada!

The group of us will be visiting many different sites and attractions all over the province. These include a tour of Quebec city, the Musée du Fort, Montmorency Falls, and a visit to the Montréal Science Centre. We will be accompanied by tour guides, chaperones, and Mr. Petit, the wonderful and extremely generous French teacher who will be running the trip! The full itinerary can be found at the bottom of this article.

A meeting discussing the details of the trip. (Feb. 21, 2017 10:45 AM)

We will be leaving first thing in the morning on April 12, 2017—that’s Wednesday—and arriving back in the states 5 days later. I will make a post every evening detailing the events and experiences of the day. This will include pictures, vlogs, and firsthand accounts from other people attending the trip with me. I also plan to release a poem or short story here and there, just so my blog won’t be entirely focused on the trip.

I’m very excited for this trip! This will be the 4th time I’ve travelled outside of the United States, and the 2nd time I’ve been to Canada. The first time was when I was 7 years old, though, so this should be a great new experience for me, anyways. Oh and by the way, we won’t be taking a flight there; a long bus ride to and from the country awaits us. All of this is sure to bring a fresh new adventure that you all are sure to enjoy!

A major milestone has been reached

Hello all, just a short post to tell you about an exciting big step in my writing career. Last afternoon (2/27/17), there was a pleasant surprise as my brother Travis informed me that a package arrived for me. I opened it and discovered that it turned out to be my first ever shipment of my book, The Month Of June!

It’s a surprise since I expected it to arrive on March 7th, as the website projected. But now that they’re here I can get to selling them sooner, and be able to get more money to then put into buying more books.

This really is a milestone for me. This started out as just a story I worked on in my notebook on my free time. And to finally see it materialized in front of me like this is amazing, and shows just how far I’ve come.

You can grab your own copy of The Month of June, too. All of the information about it is right here, with links to different purchasing options at the bottom. 

To all of my followers – Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hello all! It’s just about 11 at night where I live, so I’m a little late, but still this post is worth making.

This goes out to all the beautiful people who exist on the earth this Valentine’s day. I hope your relationships grow strong and powerful with each coming day. And if you happen to be single, I’m thinking about you too; I hope you have a happy and prosperous life, with or without your ideal partner! Rest assured that I’ll be sending you all good vibes soon.

By the way, my posting should be picking up again soon. I have a big post planned for tomorrow next week that I think you’ll like, and in the coming days I should be posting some of my older work. I want to showcase some of the good ones, and I want to avoid them getting overlooked, if I can. I want all of my work to be seen as good as possible.

I take suggestions for posts too, if you were wondering. If there’s anything you’d like for me to tackle, send it in and I’ll see what I can do! I love every single one of you guys, and I dearly hope that you enjoy my blog.

2017 Update!

Well everyone, believe it or not, we’re already 1 week into 2017. For many, 2016 was a doozy of a year, with many celebrity deaths, a leap day, a summer Olympics, and a very heated and unpredictable presidential election. Now that that’s over, we can all look ahead to the new year and hope that it’s better than the last.

First of all, there’s my posting. It really is a bad habit of mine to have several posts planned and partially typed but never getting around to posting them. That happened to me just last week, actually. I had a post planned filled with thoughts and predictions for 2017, what I think about New Year’s traditions, et cetera. But I waited much too long to post it; now it’s the 8th of January and the line of 2017 predictions has mostly worn off. I may still post it, but if not, I’ll just queue it to post during late December, so then we may look back and see how accurate my predictions are.

Other than that, there are a few things that I’m looking forward to posting on this blog. There’s a lot I’m working on that I think will be very interesting for you to see! Among them are a painting, an ongoing fiction story, and maybe a contest or giveaway, in order to bring awareness to this blog. The new year will bring a lot of new content for you guys, so watch out for that! Posting more often will be in order too, and I hope to formulate a posting schedule, as well.
