Award+random photos=normal for my posts

Wow. I feel like I haven't been here in forever. I know this have been posted but those were scheduled so I haven't really made up a new post in about two weeks. You would NaNoWriMo (Which I'm going to post about later on this week), school, play rehearsals and pre-holiday cleaning I would have my hands full but surprisingly I have had some free time. I haven't really been spending it constructively but it is a wonderful to have a breather somethings. =)

So, I didn't come just to ramble. Though that's certainly fun. ;D I was awarded twice for The Blogger Recognition Award! Once by Katie of Lilies of Grace and once by Lydia of The Fashion Cheetah! Thank you both! =D 

So here's what I'm suppose to do:
1. Thank the person who nominated me, and provide a link to their blog. 
2. Give a brief story on how I started my blog, and a one or two tips for other bloggers. 
3. Choose 15 other bloggers to nominate for this award.
4. And comment on each of their blogs to let them know I nominated them.

Okay. So, how and why I started my blog.  
Well. I've always been very loud. You know, that annoying girl who always told you when your hair looked funny as a kid or jumped in on your conversation. Yea, that was a kid just about like me. Fast forward to when I'm thirteen and I'm still not getting a lot of tacit in my life. So all that leading up the the point that sometimes I just wanted to talk to people about random stuff like my books, music, what was going on but I wasn't good at filtering out stuff while I was talking. I sounded great on paper but in person was a little more sticky so I decided the best way to talk to a wide range of people was to start a blog and in my mind I idolized one like my older sister Sarah's blog you know, full of awesome writerly stuff, fun book posts exc. So Sarah helped me one evening and we set up "The bubblegum Ballerina" which is the name of one of my books which still hasn't been written but the title was the best I had at the time so I named my blog that. =) 
My first post when up in June of 2014 and I've never been quiet the awesome blog I wanted to be but I hope to get better. =) 

I thought yall might like this, my cat fell asleep but kept his par on that little horse snuggly! It looked like he was crying over the little guy. =D

My advice to other bloggers:
Relax a bit. 
You've got people who love reading your blog but I can pinkie promise you that they won't kill over if your post is a day late. ;) 
Also just don't forget, your doing great, no matter what people say.
