30 days writing challenge


So remember how I said I was going to try to talk more about myself on here? yeah I’ve failed woefully on that BUT the year isn’t over yet and I’m going to be doing this 30 day writing challenge for the rest of this month! Instead of making a new post every day though, I’ll just be coming on this one to update it, writing on the question for the day plus extras here and there as I deem fit, most of them are most likely going to be random answers so bear with me. I think it’s going to be fun and I’m excited to let you in on it. Feel free to comment your thoughts too and maybe add some questions and who knows, I might as well add them. Leggo!

Day 1

10 things that make me happy (in no specific order asides no 1)

  1. Jesus
  2. Music
  3. Family
  4. Friends
  5. Love
  6. Flowers
  7. The moon
  8. Books/writing
  9. Fashion
  10. Candy

Day 2

What someone told me about myself that I’ll never forget.

Okay this one is a little tricky because I have to pick just one but oh well..

“You’re beautiful. I’m not talking about your face, who cares? I’m talking about your heart. You have a beautiful heart” …

Yes it’s super short and might not seem like a big deal but it’s definitely something I’ll never forget.

Day 3

My top three pet peeves

  1. SLOW WALKERS!!! It’s fine if you’re not in a hurry or don’t really have any place to go but please, don’t walk slow in front of me, kindly let me through. Thank you
  2. Messy/dirty bathrooms. Eww. If do you wash it often, your bathroom isn’t going to be stained and would literally take you just few mins if you do it often and do it right.
  3. Not saying “thank you” when someone does something for you. It’s simply courtesy y’all

I’m super sweet I promise, these are just some of my few pet peeves. Let me know in the comment section if you relate to any of these or what other pet peeves you have!

Day 4

Someone that inspires me – My mum!

“Your heart of gold second to none,

Your strong mind forever standing tall,

Your selfless soul open to all and sundry,

Your love for family I can’t help but adore,

Your love for God is so out of this world,

Watching you do you inspires me to strive to be a better version of myself

Because truly, you’re everything I’d like to be and more ❤”

Day 8

Share something you struggle with

I guess putting my feelings into words, good or bad, it could be much easier to stay quiet but I’m working on it!

Day 9

Post some words of wisdom that speak to you

Set a goal so big you can’t achieve it until you grow into the person who can.

Day 10

Write about something you feel strongly for

If you truly knew who you are, you’d see yourself in a new perspective,

If you truly knew who created you, you’d know who you are,

If you truly knew your purpose, you’d live life different,

If you truly knew him, you’d know your purpose,

If you truly knew the bigger picture afterlife, you’d love different

If you truly knew him, you’d know the bigger picture

“For it is written, eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love him, but God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God”. 1Corinthians 2:9-11

Day 11

Something I always think ‘what if’ about

What if everyone treated everyone else the way they’d like to be treated?

Day 12

Five blessings in my life

  • My Faith
  • My family
  • My friends

  • My peace

Day 13

What are you excited about?

2019! I know that’s super vague but it’s going to be my best one yet and I really am excited for it for a lot of reasons 💃💃

Day 14

Post some of your favorite movies you never get tired of watching

Okay so here’s the thing with me, I’m not really into movies, if I had a choice between seeing a movie or reading a book with the exact storyline, I’d undoubtedly pick the book. Don’t get me wrong, I see movies here and there sometimes but I don’t like seeing the same thing over and over again, there has to be a loooong gap 😉

My zoadiac sign

To be honest, I had no idea what it is, I’m really not into things like that but googled it for the sake of this post. According to my birthday, it’s supposed to be Aquarius and there sure was a bunch of things written about it but do I believe in horoscope or think it affects my life in any way? Nope

Day 23

A letter to someone, anyone

Dear me,

At first, I thought writing to you would be quite selfish as I could have addressed this to anyone but still chose you but on second thoughts, I know I’ll be glad I did. I just have a couple of things to remind you of, you see that pretty smile you’ve always had? Yeah, that one, don’t let nothing take that from you, not the troubles or worries of adulthood nor the responsibilities and duties of womanhood. I know you’re very busy but I also know you have a lot of wonderful people around you so here’s a reminder to cherish the relationships that matter, live the moment and love the people in it at every given time. Also never loose sight of the bigger picture, remember everything that you are and you do is for a much bigger purpose, for an eternal impact so always keep that in mind. Never take for granted the beautiful gift of love that’s been given to you, the one who’s loved you even before your existence, don’t forget to share his love to everyone you come in contact with. That’ll be all for now, hope to write to you again in the nearest future.



Day 24

Write about a lesson you learned the hard way.

My identity, who I truly am, is found in Christ and him alone, not in my grades, not my friends, not the world, in Christ alone.

Day 25

Think of any word. Search on google images. Write something on the 11th image.

What exactly is the truth I ask?

Is it what I choose to see?

Is it what others say it is?

Or is it what it truly is?

What exactly is the truth?

Is it the same as it was yesterday?

Or does it change with each passing day?

Would it always remain what it is?

Or does it change in troubling seas?

What exactly is your truth?

Day 26

An area about my life I’d like to improve

I’d like to improve in sustaining relationships, keeping in contact and checking up on friends, not just being an absent friend.

Day 27

Write conversely about something that’s kicking ass right now

I don’t really know what to write for this. . .

Day 28

Five things that make me laugh out loud

  1. J
  2. O
  3. K
  4. E
  5. S


Day 29

Goals for the next 30 days

  • Finish reading a book I started a while ago
  • Start another book
  • Sleep less

Day 30

Highs and lows for the month
