What I’ve been doing to prevent BOREDOM

made on 6-14-2022

Hey there, it’s me again! So, summer break is here, there are soooo many things I want to do! Some problems are, I can’t drive yet and my parents both work so they can’t take me out! I’ve been stuck at home on the weekdays, so here is what I’ve been doing to keep myself busy.

  1. Swim in my pool- I LOVE swimming, and I go almost everyday! If you have a pool you should definitely use it!
  2. Bake- I have been baking, it is so fun!
  3. Playing with my sibling and pets- If you have a sibling, or a relative, or pets you should play with them! You could play fetch or a card game or a video game.
  4. Cleaning- I have been cleaning my room and my closet and so much more! I will say cleaning does not have to be that boring! It is actually kind of fun! I’ve been cleaning out my closet and finding so many clothes that I thought I had lost! You can also make someone else happy by donating some of your clothes.
  5. Working on crafts- I have been painting and crocheting and more! I like to make random stuff out of air dry clay or polymer clay and paint it later!

That is all for what I’m doing to stay occupied over summer! That is it for this post, I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you so much for reading this!

Bath and Body Works Haul!

made on 6-10-2022

Hey there! It’s me again, and a few days ago we went to bath and body works! What a lovely store, here is what we got!

What We Got

Into the Night shower gel– into the night smells soooooo good! I love the packaging!

Firecracker Pop hand sanitizer– This is one of their new 4th of july/summer scents, it kind of reminds me of the smell of Kool Aid.

Black Cherry Merlot foaming hand soap– As I have said previously, this is one of my favorite scents from bath and body works! My sister and I got this for our bathroom, we love foaming soap.

Crisp Morning Air hand soap– My mom picked out this soap for her bathroom, it smells good, it is not foaming though.

Afternoon sunshine shower gel– This smells good, my mom really liked it!

Honeysuckle & Peach Spritz shower gel– I really liked this scent, it smells like peaches!

Whipped Berry Meringue shower gel– This shower gel is for me! I love this scent, I got a mini perfume of it when I went to bath and body works in february! It smells very sweet and candy like.

Have you ever shopped at Bath and body works? What is your favorite scent?

made on 6-9-2022

Hey there! It’s me! WWDC 2022 was on tuesday! I am here today to give you guys a summary of what happened! Let’s dive into it.

All of my information is from apple.com

iOS 16- The new software updates for iPhones focuses alot of customization. For the first time in apple history, we will be able to customize the lock screen! You can add widgets to the lock screen. have different focus lock screens, and can change the font on the lock screen! Also notifications will now roll in from the bottom of the screen. New updates include better shared photo libraries and some new updates to messages. You can now edit a message and can unsend a message! Apple also has been working on shareplay and you can now shareplay over messages! They have also been fixing some bugs on the mail app. They introduced passkeys which are “a more secure and easier way to sign in” (apple.com). Now there is live text for video which basically means you can pause a video with text and be able to copy and paste it! You can also lift a subject from a picture and isolate it which is cool. Better dictation and automatic punctuation on dictation!! Updates to maps, updates to apple pay and wallet like Apple pay later which allows you to split the cost of something you bought using apple pay. New updates to home which I will not go in depth. Health and fitness updates. And family sharing updates. Privacy and Security safety check , and accessibility updates like door detection and live captions, and more! Finally, we have the next generation of CarPlay in which your iphone can basically take over the car screens. Here is a picture: For more information find out at: https://www.apple.com/apple-events/

iPadOS 16- In the new software update for iPad apple announced: Shared Photo library just like on iPhone. Message updates like unsending and editing messages, and shareplay through messages. Updates to the mail app. Safari shared tab groups and the introduction of Passkeys. Stage manager which is a new way to multitask on the ipad. You will be able to resize windows and see overlapping windows in a single view on ipads. New display modes like reference mode for the 12.9 inch ipad pro and display scaling mode. The weather app on the ipad, finally! A redesigned game center dashboard and new updates for games. Live text for video which I explained and lifting a subject from a background, also live text quick actions and shortcuts without setup. New updates to home and family sharing. Desktop class apps which I still do not fully understand but I believe it lets you edit and do other stuff for productivity. Freeform which is a productivity app where you and others can bring your ideas to live. Privacy and security updates. Accessibility updates which I explained when I was talking about iOS 16, and more! For more information find out at: https://www.apple.com/apple-events/

WatchOS 9- New workout updates such as new workout views on the apple watch, customization of workouts, heart rate zones and more. Medication updates on the Health app. Sleep tracking, and new watch faces and more easily customizable faces! There is a new lunar face which looks really cool! AFib history which tracks the times your heart shows signs of AFib. Updates to family setup. Accessibility updates like double pinch to start a workout or take a photo. Productivity updates, and Apple fitness + updates. For more information find out at: https://www.apple.com/apple-events/

macOS Ventura- This is the update for macs! First of all, I will say that I liked the name monterey better (it’s fun to say), but Ventura is also a nice name. Improved search and updates on the mail app. Enhanced image search in spotlight, also a new search design and quick actions for spotlight. Safari and Passkeys updates, shared tab groups on safari. Messages updates like edit messages and unsend messages. Shareplay through Messages and richer collaboration. Updates to photos such as icloud shared photo library. Stage Manager which is new, it automatically orangizes your apps and windows into a single view. Facetime handoff on macs, say if you are on a facetime on your phone you can switch to your mac. Continuity camera which lets you use your iPhone as a webcam for your mac!! Updates to games, freeform which I talked about with ipads. System Settings, basically they took the style of the sidebar in iPhone and iPad settings and put it in system preferences on the macs. Privacy and Security updates, accessibility updates and more! Information from https://www.apple.com/apple-events/

from https://www.apple.com/apple-events/

New MacBook air!!- The finally introduced a new macbook air! It has a new design, m2 chip, up to 18 hours of battery life, a liquid retina display, and advanced camera and audio. It is very thin, like always, 2.7 pounds and 0.44″ thin. There are four colors: Space gray, silver, starlight (new for mb air) and the one I am most excited about, midnight (also new). The new M2 chip is in it and makes it super fast! There is still tough id but now instead of the boring usbc port for charging we get a magsafe charging port (which is amazing, my dad has it on his 2015 macbook), and two thunderbolt ports! For information go to https://www.apple.com/apple-events/

Macbook pro 13”- The new 13″ macbook pro has the m2 chip basically other than that it’s the same as the other m1 13″ macbook pro, so I would probably not upgrade to the new one if you already have the m1 . It has 20 hours of battery life . It has a retina display, 500 nits of brightness and true tone. Better camera and audio, and the same magic keyboard with a touch bar.. Personally I am not a big fan of the touch bar and prefer regular keys. It has touch id. For more information go to https://www.apple.com/apple-events/

What was your favorite thing announced? Mine was the new macbook air!

Hey there! My school is over, and I am so excited!!!!

School

Ok, so school is over and now summer is here!!!! I am kind of sad, I have to say bye to my friends and classmates for 2 months, but I am happy for summer break! This school year was really fun for me and was filled with amazing memories, I lovedddd the class I was in, it was crazy in a good way!! Now that I think about it, this is the first actual school ending that I have had in 2 years! In 2020 school ended when I was online!

Now I will be congratulating and shouting out teachers and friends/classmates. I will only put the 1st/2nd/3rd letter(s) of their names to respect their privacy!

Pink Lemonade Slushy

made on: 5-22-2022

Hey there!! Today I will be showing you all how to make a pink lemonade slushy at home! This is just an example of what you can make. This post will teach you how to make a slushy out of powdered drink mix, you are not limited to pink lemonade and can you anything else! Let’s get into it!

Last year I made a post similar to this, except it was: how to make a snow cone

Things needed:

  • Blender
  • 3 tablespoons of drink mix ( I am using pink lemonade for this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 2 cups ice
  • cup/bowl/something to contain the slushy

Steps:

  1. First, I like to put the ice, water, and drink mix into the blender
  2. Once those are in the blender, blend it up!
    • I like to put the blender on high for a few seconds or until it looks like everything is blended
    • The slushy should have a nice icy-watery consistency
  3. Put it in your cup- This makes about a large cup like the one in the picture.
I had to blur out something that was written on the cup. It should fill up this entire cup, I just drank some 🙂

4. Enjoy!
