Merry Christmas, everybody! Today’s post is going to be short and sweet 🙂

I hope that you have an amazing holiday, full of gifts, laughter, family, fun, and snow (if you live somewhere that does)! I’m so grateful for all of y’all – I wish I could give you one giant, virtual group hug! Thank you so much for supporting my blog in the one and a half years I’ve had it, and I can’t believe how much this little blog has grown! I love you guys 🤗🤗🤗

I’m kind of amazed that I was actually able to complete Blogmas! This was my first time ever doing it, and it turned out to be really fun and rewarding! Although it was a little stressful, I managed to make 12 posts this month, plus my regular Saturday posts at the beginning of the month! I couldn’t have done it without all of y’alls encouragement and engagement on the posts! I’m so glad that you guys enjoyed Blogmas, and I hope that it was fun seeing a new post pop up in your reader everyday!

Most popular post: Nutcracker 2020 Recap (Blogmas Day 1) (With 57 views!!)

My favorite post: A Day in My Life: Winter Break Edition! (Blogmas Day 9) (I really liked the pictures on this one, and it was super fun to make!)

The easiest post: Probably Christmas Aesthetics, since it only took me an hour to make and I basically just downloaded my Pinterest board I had already made a month ago, and the post turned out pretty good for not having to spend a lot of time on it!

The hardest post: Maybe Christmas Playlist Swap Ft. Mary Elizabeth! (Blogmas Day 2), since I made it the day before finals so I was a little stressed out, and it took a long time to listen to all the songs. I really enjoyed the collab though, and the end result was super rewarding after all that hard work!

My favorite featured image: I experimented with a new app to make images for Blogmas, and I liked how it turned out! Maybe Day 1 or 2, because I love the picture on my Nutcracker Recap and I liked the idea on 2!

And that’s it for Blogmas 2020! I’m so glad I attempted it this year, and I had so much fun! I hope that everyone has an AMAZING Christmas!! See y’all in 2021 (!!!!)

Blogger Spotlight: Soumya Talks Dance, Poetry, & Doing What You Love (Blogmas Day 3 )

Day 1: Nutcracker Recap

Day 2: Playlist Swap

Hey daydreamers! A new blogger, Soumya Thomas Mathew, reached out to me a few weeks ago requesting a blog spotlight. I thought it would be super fun for me to interview her for today’s Blogmas post! Pretend that we’re at a coffee shop together, sipping peppermint hot cocoas and chatting about blogging, and you’re listening to our conversation. XD Let’s get to the interview! My questions will be in bold, and Soumya’s answers will be in regular font!

Just FYI: some of this interview has been edited for grammar, clarity, and length 🙂 And all photos are from Soumya’s blog!

Click to visit her blog!

Hey! First off, can you tell us a bit about yourself and your blog?

My name is Soumya Thomas Mathew. I am a 12 year old, studying in 8th grade; living in Kerala, India. I love everything creative. I am the happiest person in the world when I am dancing or writing. My blog is largely based on inspiration, my songs, poems, writings, and reviews. 

I can definitely relate to that – I also love writing and dancing! What kinds of things do you post about?

On my blog, I share inspiration for my songs, poems and writings, tips, book reviews, DIYs, and some moments of my life. I also share my monthly bullet journal spreads.

On your blog, a major topic you’re passionate about is doing what you love. Why do you think this is so important?

Yes, I believe that we can live our life to the fullest only if we follow our hearts, and do the things that we love. When we grow old, we can’t live the rest of our lives regretting about certain opportunities, dreams or ideas that we just let go…we have the full authority to chase the dream of our choice, no matter what others will think about it. In the end, it is not about money or status, it’s about being happy and satisfied with the life that we lived.

When did you start blogging, and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging during October this year. I began blogging after realizing that I needed a place where I could share my writings, rather than keeping them all to myself.

Blogging is a great creative outlet! What is your main goal for your blog?

At present, the main goal for my blog is to have the story of at least one person whom I could influence or help in some way. Having a large number of followers is a dream of every blogger, me included.

Helping people is probably the best thing about blogging. In your poem, Animal, you wrote about being your best self. What is your favourite part of inspiring others through poetry?

Yes. I would love to hear stories of people whom I have helped in some way through my writings. But that hasn’t happened yet. But I hope it will. I also like it when people give me feedback because it gives me the inspiration to never give up on writing.

What is your favorite thing about dance?

My favorite thing about dance is that whenever I dance I am very satisfied with myself that day. I  started dancing just this year. I am self-taught and not very experienced, but I can see myself improving. I hope to join a dance class when the COVID problem minimizes.

How would your friends describe you in 3 words?

Approachable, crazy, best-est friend (That’s not a word, but that’s what my best friends said. Hehe!)

What kinds of things inspire you to write songs or poetry?

My best songs and poems come out when I am feeling a strong rush of some emotion. My diary assists me a lot too as I write in it as soon as I feel angry, sad or disappointed. I also make sure to note down some ideas, words or phrases which I find interesting, and take inspiration from them later.

Lastly, (since it’s Blogmas, after all!) how do you celebrate Christmas? What’s your favorite tradition?

Yes! I do celebrate Christmas! My favorite thing about Christmas season is that we, my cousins and relatives, all have a get together at my mother’s place. We have bonfires, barbecue nights, carols, and good food! Sadly, it’s not possible this year due to covid.


And that’s it for the interview! If you haven’t yet, make sure to check out Soumya’s blog and give her a follow! Let me know if you know any bloggers you think I should spotlight sometime, and I’ll see ya tomorrow!

How do you celebrate Christmas? What are you happiest doing? Have you checked out Soumya’s blog?

answering awards!

Hey daydreamers! Right now, I’m at camp! Today is my last day, and I should be coming home either today or tomorrow to answer all your comments, questions, emails, and check on your posts.

If you couldn’t tell already, this post is scheduled! I’m writing this on a rainy Friday morning, with lots of packing to do and a blog post to get up. I couldn’t really come up with anything that I could write in a short amount of time, so I decided I would finally get around to doing some awards!

I get tagged/nominated for awards a *lot*, but I honestly don’t love doing them? I love it when you guys nominate me and totally feel free to, but just know I might not get around to doing it unless I have absolutely nothing to post! I don’t really love to read tag posts either, but I’ll try to do my best to make this post as interesting and fun to read as possible! My goal is to tackle at least two awards in this post, and let’s get straight into it!

Independence Day Blog Tour Celebration Collab: What I ❤ About My State

Hey daydreamers! Today’s post is going to be extra special. Mary Elizabeth came up with the idea for a fun 4th of July blog tour to celebrate our independence throughout the blogosphere! Her, Diamond & I are hosting the blog tour, and this is my post for it!

I have a kind of sad update for you guys – on Sunday, just a few hours before we were supposed to leave for camp, I found out that two counselors tested positive for COVID-19, and they had to cancel last week’s session – the week I was supposed to go. It was super hard to hear that, but we tried to make the best of our time in San Antonio and got to visit some family and friends! We rescheduled for session 8, which is on July 19th, and I’m hoping and praying they won’t cancel it and I’ll get to go! It was a super bummer at first, and I’ve got to restart the 14-day quarantine and prep/pack all over again. More staff got it, so they canceled this week too, and I really hope session 8 won’t get cancled! I have cheer camp this week (yay!) some fun posts planned, and a special surprise for Diary of a Daydreamer’s birthday, so stay tuned for that!

For the tour, I decided to make a post about all the things I love about Texas, which, I admit, was a pretty daunting task at first. I mean, Texas is 268,597 square miles (a couple thousand square miles bigger than France) and is home to 29 million people – how am I supposed to represent all of that in one post?! I tried my best to make a list of the things I love about living in the Lone Star State, plus some cool fun facts and, of course, Independence Day stuff too. So let’s get straight into it! Some of the photos are mine, and others are from Pinterest.
