You guys, I'm still not on summer break 😭 it's super tragic AND I still have 3 weeks.

Guess who just finished her first year of highschool? I missed you guys! Now what is your latest read?

Nicee! Tbh I'm currently not reading anything, so if yall have any recommendations, I'm all ears (just a heads up I'm kinda picky when it comes to books😅). I love fantasy like "A Throne of Glass" by Sarah J. Maas ( it's slow, but REALLY GOOD).

Nice! I am glad! Hope you did well!

Congrats!! What was it like? I'm going into highschool next, and I'm really nervous. I'm currently reading The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan!

Wow, congrats! I’m going to be a freshie in hs so that’s exciting! The latest book I’m planning on reading is called “Made For This Moment” by Madison Prewett Troutt. Glad you are back btw!

This week’s quote: “Fear is a reaction. Courage is a decision.” ~ Winston Churchill. 😉

Oh wow.......... That is such and amazing quote! I like quotes like that. I wish to be like that someday. I am considering becoming a police officer, but I have not looked into it yet. I think it will be a long time coming, as I am 14.

Hey y'all, it's been a long while! Hope everyone's doing awesome!! Here's an ice breaker, though i think the ice is already broken and has been for a while: Is pineapple an acceptable pizza topping, or should it be banned forever? My answer: If you like it go ahead and have my slice; I will never ever ever be putting it in my mouth....ever. Can't wait to hear y'alls thoughts!!

I agree... I just don't like pineapples in general.

I like pineapples on pizza, they’re delicious.

I didn't realize quite a few people liked it!

Oh my gosh!!! It has been a while, WELCOME BACK!!!!! To answer your ice breaker, I think pineapples are AMAZING on pizza! Hawaiian is actually my fav type of pizza!

I don't like pineapple by itself though.....

I agree! Hawaiian is amazing! I honestly think it is the best type of pizza.

Hi! Have any of you here participated in piano contests before? I have participated in several small ones but never in a big one. Can any of you tell me what it is like at a big piano contest?

I've done recitals but never actual contests. That sounds really neat!
