Catching Up With V

... Not Catching Up With ME but Catching Up With V. The two sounded similar and I thought I needed a better post title for my random and uncalled for update posts!

Something funny that happened to me was leaving my phone at my mom's friend's house on the 14th. We had just finished cleaning after dinner when we decided to go to a huge cemetery that has a view of the whole city below. I didn't think too much about my phone, but got home and realized where I left my phone. It's funny how dependent you are on your phone.

Barefoot in the graveyard above the city we all decided to play tag. The wind was blowing, the sun was set and we were all out of breath. The wind played with my hair as I chased the children running every which way. We were all laughing having the time of our lives and it seemed like a moment you read in a book. 


My grandma visited for a few days, August 18-21, from North Carolina. It was really great seeing her, the last time I saw her was four years ago so, it was great to catch up. On Tuesday, we picked her up from the airport around 9:00 pm, she was so tired that we took her directly to her hotel, she needed to rest. Every day after that, my sister and me stayed with her at her hotel and swam in the pool they had there, I got so tan from that! 

The thought of school is starting to enter my mind more and more. I have two weeks and a half until school starts... Senior year, here I come! The thought of school scares me a little right now because I don't want summer to end. 

Today, I have turned off my phone in hope that I can unravel and spend some time doing things I enjoy. Blogging being one of them! I have started reading, The Curious Incident of  the Dog in the Night-Time, It's a fantastic book so far!

Songs I'm grooving to: 
Little White Lies, Florrie
Eighteen, Dive In
Dancing With Myself, The Knocks

❤,
Vanessa

  1. Lucky you! School has already started for me :) This sounds like so much fun... Every day, I try to use my phone as little as possible. Personally, I think that most of the world today is way too dependent on mobile devices... me included :P

  7. Aww, It's horrible when your relatives don't live in the same country. I'm sure you appreciate your time together even more. I see my grandparents every two weeks or so and they still ''complain''' how little time I spend with me. I wish I had more time as well, but it's hard with school and everything. I'm starting my sophomore year on Tuesday and I'm really nervous. The summer went by so fast!! xxx

    1. Seems like grandparents will always complain about how little they see you. We brighten their day (or so I hope) It can be hard to live far away from them, but makes you appreciate the time you have with them when you see them. Have a good sophomore year!
