On The Daily #152

Hi everyone, I hope the weekend is treating you well and you’re getting ready for the upcoming 4th of July celebrations!

I have been introduced into author, writing, and reading groups recently, and I was wondering if any of you would know a good site or group that’s online I could look around at. I’ve been wanting to communicate with others like this for a while now, not only to talk about writing and reading but to make new friends. So if you have any suggestions, please leave it down below in the comment section and I’ll gladly read it!

Spread joy and happiness and have a great rest of your weekend!

Much love, Chloe ❤

In yesterday’s post, I talked briefly on why I like to write, and I’d like to carry on with that but talk about why I like to share my writing on my blog.

In my last post (and previous one) I said that talking isn’t my best, so I resort to writing. I would love to have talking as a good trait of mine, but it simply isn’t, and I have to face that fact. Trying will be something I do nonstop, so I’ll keep on trying to have better conversation skills. But for right now, I’m going to make my writing even better than what it is. If writing is something I deeply love, then why not share that and keep improving?

I post everyday on my blog because it’s a way I can get my metaphorical voice heard. Whether there is only one person who reads or 10, I want someone else out there to hear what I have to say. That’s why I like to post motivational and inspiring posts. In the past few years I’ve been discovering who I am and why I’m here, and I think as of right now I’m still confused but I want to share it and share kindness. There has to be something I’m meant for and maybe it is writing, so for now it’s what I’ll do.

Much love, Chloe ❤

Life Talk #25

Happy happy Friday, everyone! As per usual, I hope you’re all doing well and that you’re happy the weekend is finally here, as I am.

This week was definitely a slow one, as I wasn’t having the creative juices for upcoming projects. If you’re on the creative side, you know how much this actually sucks. It sucks because one, you have this abondent feeling of doing something great but something just isn’t there. And two, you feel like you’re wasting away when you could be doing what you love. I have this about every few weeks and it’s kind of irritating if I’m being honest. And if you’re not on the creative side of things, I’m sure there’s still something there to replace it. It just really sucks and I wish it didn’t happen, but where would we be if we didn’t have something to stop us? We wouldn’t know how to persevere through things. I guess that’s the only thing I’m happy about when something goes wrong. I believe that to persevere through something makes us stronger and prepares us for something even greater. Other than that, there hasn’t been much of a disturbance.

As for weekend plans, there’s not much on the list but of course to have fun! And I hope you do too. The goal for this weekend is to step away from life itself and take a moment of gratitude for what’s around you. I don’t think a lot of us do that too much, thus it would be good. Plus, they say what goes around comes around. Who knows, maybe you’ll get some gratitude yourself.

Anyways, have an amazing weekend everyone!

Much love, Chloe ❤

Why I write. I write because it lets out a creative outlet that I have boiled up inside of me. I write because of all the characters I want the light to see. I write because it’s what I like to do in my spare time. I write because I think this world needs fictional characters to lean on sometimes. I write because of the joy I and many others get from the stories. I write because I know it can show who I am best.

Writing is a great source for me because I’m not the best at communicating with others. I feel that words written down can show what I do, what I like, and most importantly, who I am. There are too many that I know who don’t really truly understand and know me. Thus, I want to show them and the world who I am and why I’m here.

Tell me why you like to write, I’d love to hear it! Seeing and reading about why others like doing what they do makes me happy beyond belief 🙂

As always, much love, Chloe ❤

Time is flying, guys… It’s already almost July. It feels like when we get older, time keeps going by faster and faster. For example, it’ll be almost a year when I moved to California in August. Super crazy, haha! But like I said in yesterday’s post, life is short and seems like it’s going by faster and faster.

I just had this random thought this morning. Time can be our best friend and our enemy at the same time, so try not to take it for granted. Keep up a great summer, everyone!

Much love, Chloe ❤

It’s the first day of summer!!! Summer is officially here and I can’t wait to do all of my summer plans/ bucket list. Speaking of that, did you make one? I hope so. If you did, comment down below what you want to do this summer!

So far it’s been foggy this morning, but the high is going to be 77 degrees, so I’m sure the sun will come out this afternoon with the high heat 🙂

One thing that I’m so lucky to have this summer are beaches galore. I can’t wait to go to the beach every weekend! Time is short, so do whatever it is you want to do 🙂

Have an amazing first day of summer everyone!!

Much love, Chloe ❤

Hey everyone, sorry this is going up so much later than usual. Just wanted to let you know that I already have new plans on the direction I’d like my blog to go towards for the year of 2018! When 2018 comes, I will almost be on my blog for two whole years! How crazy? With that, I want to expand myself. I want to show you all more about me. That being said, my blog won’t entirely be about writing anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I love writing and I think it will stay being a part of me until I die but as I’m getting older and exploring new and different things, I want to share that somehow. I’m already doing this on my YouTube channel but when I’m doing something like that, I want more. I want to truly embrace who I am whenever I feel like it. So within these next six months I am going to be planning out the best posts I can that involve who I am. Some of it I may not be able to post on my blog, which leads me to my next topic. If I am not aloud to post certain things on my blog, I may create my own site where I can post whatever I’d like to.

As for now, I am staying on WordPress. In 2018 I’ll probably still post some writing things here and there but right now my plans are to post so many other things. And if you’d like to see some of the things I’m talking about, go to my YouTube channel! (@ Chloe Akemi) I try to post at least once a week, so go check that out, please!

As always, Much love, Chloe ❤

TBR and Book Recommendations #7

I feel like I just did one of these but I am back again to tell you my TBR and book recommendations! In the month of June, I did not finish King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard but I am almost done with it. Considering money plays a big part in my TBRs, I don’t like to spend too much money and focus on thoroughly enjoying my book. So the first couple of weeks of June, I read about 20 chapters but I slowed down and wanted it to last the entire month of June. And considering when I’m posting this, I’ll still have almost a whole two more weeks to finish with only 9 chapters left. As for July’s TBR, if I don’t finish, I’ll be reading King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard and Winter by Marissa Meyer.

As for book recommendations, If you want to learn the jist of Greek mythology, then Greek Mythology by Hourly History is a great short read for you. I’m not very good at comprehending historical readings, so I have to go back a few times and reread it. But this book was very good at shortening it and getting to the point.

Have an amazing month of reading!

Much love, Chloe ❤

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

As I’ve said in basically all of these famous quote posts, I couldn’t relate more. When you’re done with high school, you have so many choices right in front of you and it all depends on you to what you choose. My last year, I had no idea what I wanted to do except write. Writing had become such a huge passion for me, but one thing that everyone else was doing seemed to scary for myself, and quite frankly still does. I made a big choice and decided not to go to college and take online courses while having a blog and and writing a book. Sometimes I think about it and I think I did the better choice for being a writer. The only downside to this is not making any money really, except book sales. But don’t get me wrong, I would write for free any day, it would just be nice to receive something for all of the work I put into writing. I’ll be honest with you and tell you that I’ve been writing on my blog for almost an entire year and I’ve only made a dollar and some odd amount of cents. But I think I was blod making that decision. I may have some thoughts from time to time, but never once do I regret anything.

As usual, I hope you get what I’m trying to say. Being a writer can be hard for the money, but I’m doing this out of my passion and maybe and hopefully it will all pay off one day. Go out there, be bold, and do what your desires and passions are!

Much love, chloe ❤
