I am really surprised that ‘firstly’ is a word.
OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS YOU GUYS, THERE HAS BEEN SO MUCH GOING ON!
Now I’m going to stop with the caps lock cuz my eyeballs are in pain.
I know you guys spend all your waking, breathing moments waiting for this originally titled, absolutely fantastic blog to update (*continues speech to said imaginary friends*).
So I’m so sorry it’s been taking me so long to finally post, and I know that this is hardly an excuse, but I’ve been pretty busy these last…
*checks time stamp of last post* *whips out handy-dandy calculator*
…like, 8 months…or something.
ALL OF A SUDDEN
why is this picture so humongous. why can’t I make it smaller. help. heeeeelp.

hiatis hyatus hooyaytoos hiatus. I really appreciate all the love, encouragement, and Shawn Mendes 2019 Tour front-row seating and backstage passes you have graciously given me.

What Makes the Great And Powerful Amalee Passionate About Le Art of Blogging:
Well, as you all know, I am a very passionate and dedicated blogger known for my extreme commitment and responsibility.
But, how, may you ask?
I think my passion for and love of blogging is mostly due to the global influence I can have. Even though I only have a couple followers, when I see the little statistic thingie that rEvEaLs where readers live
it’s amazing to see just how widespread my weird posts actually are! And it’s because of these people and the amazing thought that there are some I don’t even know who live in countries I’ve never even heard of that set aside time to
well, honestly, probably criticize read my blog that I’ve come back to blogging and shall continue to post regularly (YES. I WILL. YES, AMALEE.)
SO thank you all so much for inspiring me.
(TEARS. LEGIT TEARS.)
10 Random Facts About Myself:
Uno: I cannot speak Spanish. The only language I am fluent in, and know more than ‘hello’ and ‘one’ and ‘where is the bathroom’ in is English. (¿dónde está el baño?) (mwahaha, I told you I was a genius).
And it’s kind of surprising that I know even that much in English, as proven by the fact that it took me about 10 minutes, give or take an hour or so (heh heh…heh) to learn how to pronounce – and spell – ‘hiatus’.
Two: My favorite word is ‘squishy’.
Three: If I could own just one pet – and any pet – I would own an ant. I just think it would be funny for those icebreaker things teachers make you do at the beginning of the year. It would just be like:
Hi, my name is Bob, and I have a pet dog named Rover.
Hi, my name is Bobette, and I have a pet cat named Cat.
Hi, my name is Amalee, and I have a pet ant named Arthur Charles Richardson the Third.
Sidenote: Please do not name your cat ‘Cat’. This was legit how I named all my stuffed animals when I was a kid. Thankfully, I have learned my lesson since and decided not to recommend my baby sister’s name to be ‘Child’.
Four: My favorite dessert is brownies. Never blondies, just brownies.
Five: I’m #TeamTwilightWasHorriblyWritten
Six: I was just cast as my first lead role in a musical, like, two days ago and I’ve been acting since I was five. That’s a lot of years of playing the part of Tree #7, let me tell you.
Seven: My number one pet peeve is when I’m obviously reading a book or something, and someone walks up to me and is like “yo, dude, what’re you doing?” Like, oh, yes, genius, you caught me – I’m pretending I’m sitting in class reading, when I’m actually using this magical book from the magical planet called Sweet Patch Adults to turn every Earthling into a magical unicorn-like species called the Swunicorn. I applaud your amazing detective skills.
And then this is usually the part where they run away.
Eight: My favorite movie to date would probably have to be Jumanji: Return to the Jungle. If you haven’t seen it, I totally recommend it.
Nine: My first role in a musical was ‘Old Man With Beard’. As you can tell, it was a starring role.
Ten: Some of my little sister’s TV shows…might…be………bearable.
Alright, onto the questions!
- If all the books in the world were stolen, which would you not miss at all?
Hmmm…I’d have to say Twilight and the Hunger Games.
Don’t attack me. Please.
- Would you rather have 1 meal you like for the rest of your life, or different meals you don’t like?
Probably different meals. Cuz if you stuck with one meal you like, after awhile you’d get so tired of it, you’d actually find yourself praying for, like, artichokes after about a week instead. And you know I only pull the artichoke card when I’m desperate.
- What’s the weirdest thing you ever did?
*starts counting on fingers*
Alright, so, you know how I kind of like Shawn Mendes a little bit? So my dad got me a life-size cardboard cut out of him to keep in my room as a joke (I’m not this creepy all the time, I swear).
One problem with that. Sure, half of the time I was just ogling him creepily, all like
But when it’s like eleven o’clock p.m., it’s a little difficult to fall asleep when some life-sized, immobile man-poster with a perma-smile is staring at you ALL. NIGHT. LONG.
So, instead, my friend and I moved him so that he was standing in front of the window of my room where he could creep out all the lucky passerbys who just so happened to look up while taking their cute little dogs out on a midnight stroll.
Let’s just say that we got into some very interesting conversations with the neighbors that day.
- Are you in your bed right now? Where do you usually write posts?
You have uncovered my secrets.
Uh, yeah I actually am in bed right now.
WHAT SORCERY IS THIS?!?!?!
OH, MY SQUASH. HIDE THE CHILDREN.
However, I usually do my posts in our house’s dining room, cuz it’s all aesthetic-y, and calm-y, and comfortable-y.
Which bogger(S) do you think are the awesomest and your favourite?
Why, Kerys is of course!
Honestly, I know this is super cliche and boring and stuff, but I honestly don’t have a favorite blo-
MWAHAHA!!! I TRICKED YOU! EVERYONE KNOWS MY BLOG IS THE BEST!
Bob the Builder is always relevant.
don’t have any friends cannot choose just 5-11 blogs to tag, YOU – the fantabulous person who was amazing enough to read this – can do this tag!
I’ll start off with a few awesome blogs though:
~Rose from A Purpose of Winged Dogs
~Emmalyn from lostinbetweenworlds
~Rayan from The Site of a Confused Teen
You absolutely do not have to do this tag, but it would be fun to hear some of your answers.
Here are my questions:
1: If you could be any character, who would you be and why?
2: Favorite dessert? (the struggle is real, I know)
3: If you could tell the entire world one thing in one paragraph, what would you say?
4: Write a short poem about how you’re feeling right now
5: Laws are no longer enforced. What’s the first thing you do?
Thanks again for the nomination, and I hope you all had as much fun reading this as I did making it.
OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS TO GOSH – THIS IS A LONG POST
p.s. If you’re wondering where Shawn Mendes Cut-Out is now, he’s shoved in the corner of my basement in the shadows behind a bunch of dust-coated, unused exercise equipment – you know, where normal people shove their no longer wanted, life-size, cardboard celebrity crushes.
