OTD #311 The last day…

It’s not just an Thursday… it’s the last day of November, my favorite month! It’s kind of sad because I made so many good memories in the month, as usual. But I guess that’s alright because that means it’ll be one month closer to November again 😉

Since it is the end, I’d like to take this time and tell you some of my favorite memories.

The first is obviously my birthday! That day was perfect and ended perfectly by stuffing my face with cake, literally… I can’t remember if I told you guys, but the candle situation went wrong and the candles wouldn’t go out and the wax started to drip onto the cake. Although the edges of the cake were ruined, I decided to just live life and dig my hands into the cake and stuff my face with the chocolate goodness! Zach was a little shocked but ended up doing the same with me, haha!!

My second favorite memory is a collection of days and that’s because Zach got off on a lot of holidays this month. Which lead to us having so much quality time, it was great and amazing and wonderful and just stinkin perfect. I love him with all my heart and to have an abundant of days with him made my favorite month even better 🙂

I also did a number of things with my puppy, Tiberius, but it’s cuteness overload, so you’ll have to wait for a puppy post 😉

I hope all of you have a great month and spent everyday with purpose.

Much love,

Chloe ❤


OTD #310 I want whatever YOU want

I don’t know if you could tell already, but this week is going to be all over the place. There are so many things going through my head right now and I’m in dire need to get them all out and in the open.

By the way, happy humpday! The week is already halfway over 🙂

As of now, I’m writing three posts a day because in the end of December I’ll be going back to Wisconsin and I’ll basically have two weeks where I’ll be traveling, spending time with family and friends, some blog/book preparing and celebrating the holidays. It’s pretty busy, so in order to not overload myself with writing, I’ll have to start as soon as possible, which is now 🙂 I started writing three posts a day last week until Thursday (because of turkey day, duh!), and it hasn’t been too bad. I’m one to enjoy getting a lot of things done right away and if you know what I mean, you’d know how relieving it feels.

Anyways, what I really wanted to get at is that I won’t be posting the same in the new year. One thing to be noted is that I won’t be posting every single day. I’ll explain my reasonings for changing in a later post but for now I want to know what YOU want. Like I taid a few days ago, we are 134 people and strong on this blog! There would be nothing more I’d want than to write what my audience wants to read. Before I get all mushy, I’ll end here.

So, if there are any topics you want me to talk about or certain types of posts, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE go ahead and tell me. I really do want to know!

As always, much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #309 The nerves are creeping up!

Alright… so I have this thing I have to tell select people something that’s really important to me, and I’m getting more and more nervous. Any tips for not being incredibly nervous?? Because I could really use them at the moment. To be honest, I could tell them later, which I might because it is avoidable but I’m just not sure what to do. And it’s not a guilt thing at all where I just want to get it off my chest. I just think they’re either going to love it or hate it type of thing. Regardless if I tell them now or later, I’ll still have the same reasoning. I’m the kind of person who likes a lot of space from basically everyone except for a few, so that’s what’s stopping me from telling. I don’t want everyone to explode and ask me a million and one questions and make me feel bad or dumb. I know it’s family that matters the most in telling and I guess that’s why it’s a big deal for me. You can only get away for so long before it all has to come back again.

Okay, I’m done being all in my head, haha! But really, give me some advice, I could really use some right now 🙂

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #308 Cloud Nine

Happy Monday, friends!

Real quick, I completely forgot to write a Life Talk last Friday!! If you look forward to those, I’m so so sorry. I had gotten so many posts ready for the holiday and it being the holiday that I simply forgot to write a Life Talk… I can’t believe I did that but to make up for it, I’ll definitely write a much longer post this upcoming Friday 🙂

I hope this Monday is a little bit less gloomy for you than it is where I am. You’d think it would always be sunny in California but sadly it’s not. Oh well, sometimes it’s nice to have rainy weather. When I was younger, I used to like it when it rained in the morning. Maybe it was that feeling of being cozy or just having water rest on the window. Whatever it was, it’s still here with me from time to time.

Have any of you done any cyber Monday shopping? I haven’t and I don’t think I will but you never know with the amazing deals some sites can have nowadays. I hope your black Friday shopping went good as well! It’s always super nice to shop with deals.

Today I just wanted to let you know that it’s a new day and a new start for yourself. Go and get that amazing deal, start the hobby you’ve always wanted, sleep in that extra hour… or two, hehe! Just be yourself, embrace who you are and shoot for the stars so you can be on cloud nine. It’s never too late to start over 🙂

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #307 Thankful for Lots: My blog family <3

Happy Sunday funday, everyone! Do the most on this Sunday and go out for breakfast in the morning and go on an afternoon stroll 🙂

As I close this week’s thankful posts, I want you all to know that I’m thankful for these things and many others every day.

The last thing I’m very thankful is my blog and all of my followers!!! Those of you who have stuck with me, I applaud you and thank you so so so much! You all truly do mean the most to me and I can’t thank you enough. Having this blog has shown me that there are people who really do like me for who I am and what I write.

Writing has helped me through a lot of things and I couldn’t be more appreciative of those who enjoy it. Writing is an escape I use to get away from all my problems and worries, which I have a lot of so it really is a great way to escape.

Those of you who read almost of all of my posts, thank you so much! I’m trying my best to make writing a career and to have small audience that likes my writing makes my day!

I could keep on babbling but I think you get the jist 🙂

This year has been amazing and I can’t wait for all of you to see what I have in store for you in the new year!

We are 134 and strong ❤

As always, much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #306 Thankful for Lots: My best friend forever… AKA the BFFL

It’s Saturday caturday, yall! Enjoy your lovely Saturday and have a cup of Joe or if you’re like me, a cup of hot chocolate 😉

My BFFL is my everything. He has been through so much with me and continues to be there and do the most. If you don’t know, Zach is my partner in crime, getting ice cream, long night conversations, life and having a furry family with. He’s literally my yin, jelly and all those other cheesy sayings, hehe!

I can’t say much more without getting gushy, but if you’re reading this, Zach, know that I’m incredibly thankful for you and everything you do. To be honest I don’t know where I’d be if you hadn’t stepped into my life. Probably under a bridge somewhere tell strangers they have to pay me to get across… Anyways, you know what I mean, I love you 🙂

Alright, that’s all you guys get! 😉

Find someone else in your life that treats you like you’re one in a million and never loose them.

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #305 Thankful for Lots: Work from home

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope Thanksgiving was great and you had a fun time 🙂 As for today, I hope you’re getting those steals and deals like no tomorrow. But stay safe, as some people take these sales too seriously and it can lead to violence. Just remember it’s a materialistic item.

The next thing I’m incredibly thankful for is that I can work from home. First off, I know this isn’t working to some people, as I don’t have a steady income but know that I’m trying my best and putting my everything into writing as a career. I write almost everything single day, excluding the weekends. Before it really was just for fun but now I make a little more”professional” and have it so anyone can read what I have to say. Also, writing a book is pretty hard as well. I don’t know if you’ve ever done all of the details by yourself but it’s actually a very long process and there’s a handful that goes into making a good book. And since adding an Etsy shop business, it can get even more hectic on what I need to do each day. For now it’s pretty easy since I’m a newcomer and don’t have many sales.

There’s a lot I can say being able to work from home, but the thing I like the most about it is that I’m doing what I love every single stinkin day. Not a lot of people my age can say that, thus all the more thankful I am.

Chase after what you want and excel!

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #304 Thankful for Lots: My mental state

First, I’d like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving! Eat all the turkey and pie you want. Also, take this time to remember who you are, where you’re at in life and what you are truly thankful for. Reflecting on these few things can actually make you so much happier and go into the day with a better mind set. Nonetheless, let’s get into the post.

The third thing that I’m thankful for is where my mental state is at. This past year and a half has been so bad yet good. It seems that I can go from 100 to 0 in moments. Though there are many tough times, I get through it and let myself know that everything will be okay. I might not do that right away, as my head doesn’t allow me but it eventually comes through.

To put it in short, one week will be really good and then just like that, the next will be awful. For those of you wondering, I haven’t seeked medical help but if you’re really interested I have a video on my YouTube, Chloe Akemi, explaining everything (the video is called I just want some advice).

Anyways, I’m just thankful that my mind has allowed me to think here and there that everything will be okay. I can’t tell you how much I think about everything, and when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING. But like I keep saying, I’m very thankful that nothing more has happened and that I’m still here fighting each day.

If you’re going through the same thing, remember that you can do this. In the end, the only thing that really in the way is yourself. Don’t take these words too harshly, as I know I would. You are loved and having you here is part of why this world goes round and round 😉

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #303 Thankful for Lot’s: Everything will be okay

It’s Wednesday my dudes… Anyone get the meme?… It’s fine if don’t, haha! Anyways, let’s get into this.

The third thing I’m thankful for is knowing that everything will be okay. This will tie into tomorrow’s post but I wanted to get into this one and show more positive thoughts before the massive one comes (you’ll understand tomorrow).

For a while in my life I’ve had a lot of stones thrown at me and it was incredibly hard to get back up from them but after I’d collect myself, I reassured myself that everything would be okay. It’s so hard to keep telling yourself that everything will be okay and I feel like most people need someone else in their life to tell them this. I’m not trying to make anyone feel bad but there aren’t many people in my life who try to make an effort to talk me through things. I know I’m shy and seclude myself but maybe pointing me in the right direction wouldn’t be bad… Nonetheless, those times were in the past and now all I do is tell myself that everything WILL be OKAY, even if it lasts for a week or two, it’ll pass and you’ll be grateful you didn’t do anything too damaging. Like I said before, you’ll get this a lot better when tomorrow’s post comes.

And I’ll tell you that everything will be okay. You are amazing and great and the world just wouldn’t be the same without you. Just because you aren’t a celebrity, doesn’t mean no one doesn’t care about you.

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #302 Thankful for Lots: Getting away from negativity

I hope your Tuesday is going well and you’re conquering your day like any other! Without blabbering on any longer, let’s just dive into today’s post 🙂

The second thing I’m very thankful for is that I got the chance to get away from all the negativity in my life. For almost a whole year I’ve taken myself away from the things around me that I just didn’t want in my life at the moment and it’s been great. There’s honestly not much else I can say about it. I know that there’s still so much more negativity around me but it’s all mental. Right now, as long as I don’t have a physical obstacle in the way, it makes life a little bit easier to see all of the positives. I’m someone who’s incredibly positive but like everyone else, I have my days and sometimes weeks. It’s hard to get away from the negative but if you have the chance, chase after it until it’s in the palm of your hands. It’s only from there on out that will be to you and only you.

I used to talk a lot about being very positive and that’s because I was chasing mine and I still am. I’ve only just turned 20, so I think it’s safe to say that it’s alright if I’m still trying to get away from all of the negatives.

If you’re in need to get some extra positivity, don’t be afraid to talk to me. To talk privately, my email is thommen.chloe@gmail.com.

Much love,

Chloe ❤
