blogiversary|your assumptions about me |huge announcement!!

HEY, lovely!

Guess what? Today is my one year blogiversary, which means that One in a Million has officially existed for one whole year. That’s 365 days, btw.

HOLY MOLY I can’t believe it! This has been such a dramatic, exhausting, completely exhilarating ride for me and for you and…
I’ve loved every moment of it.

Before we get on to the post, I’d like to thank you, my friend, for joining me on this ride, whether you’ve been here from the days when I never posted at all- good times, good times- or just clicked the follow button yesterday night.

But now, I don’t think anyone wants me to write a whole post thanking my friends and the people who have made this blog special (unless you do?? WELL I suppose your name must be El) especially since… I’ve already done it. Twice. So I have some ACTUAL content here which is mostly just instructions for you ahaha and let’s just hope I don’t bore you to death.
ahahah also, shameless plug, but if you want to know a HUGE HUGE HUGE announcement, keep reading ’til the bottom! And don’t you DARE skip down, I SEE YOU SCROLLING!!

What’s going on in my life? + Announcement!

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to write my heart out a little bit and combine it with an impromptu idea I came up with, credits go to Bayance (and her sister!). She’s going out of town for a bit and letting her sister write a couple of post ideas and I was like WHOA. Newsflash- I’m having a bit of a blogging block… so this will totally help me actually get posts published!

Basically, do any of you -AMAZING, I might add- people want to guest post for me? It’s promo for you and relaxation for me.

You know what- that wasn’t a great overview. What I meant was that you can get exposure for your blog- lots of smaller blogs produce GREAT content but don’t get as much traffic (haha I’m a small blog but I mean under 50 followers) so this could work out well for you!

(also an added bonus is that I don’t have to work my butt off and try to stay on top of life and blogging. jusstt a bonus)

Okkk and so we begin talking about my life!

Trip to Tahoe!

So.

I WENT SKIING! Yes, I know it’s not a big deal, but I’m doing really well now and only one thing really went wrong yesterday (I’ll elaborate later).

These pictures were taken by me on the trip to and during the trip 🙂 I love to ski! Also I didn’t take my camera with me on the slopes so I don’t have any pics from on the slopes 😕 but oh well! That’s alright.

I can do hard blue slopes now! Wheeeee! (I know, people half the age of me can do blacks, but I’m still proud)

Sadly, my mother got hurt… She hurt her leg pretty badly which completely made me break down into tears. I can’t imagine how hurt she must be, but she’s still hobbling around, trying to help out. It makes me feel horrible, but I’ve been helping out more, so at least that’s good?

Here’s a couple of pics:

This last one’s my fav 😉 Well, that was short, but I’ll post soon! See ya!

Amazing Books, My Hobbies, and Holidays

Hi! I’m back with a lot to say.

GREAT BOOKS:

  • Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
  • The Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
  • Silence is Goldfish by Annabel Pitcher
  • The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

MY CURRENT HOBBY:

Like I showed in another post, I made a hat, and have been trying out another hat for my brother.

Also, I’ve been wearing a scarf a day for the past week, and I think I’m gonna continue that. It’s actually really fun to do and it makes me happy.

HOLIDAYS

Okay, so here’s the question:

During the holidays, which do you prefer to do the most: read by a fireplace, watch a holiday classic movie, be in snow, travel to somewhere exotic, or spend time with extended family?

Get To Know Me

Hi! This is Aditi again, ready to get to know each other! Hurrah!

But jokes aside, I haven’t really said anything about myself, and it is quite important for a blogger to get to know their bloggies (I don’t think that’s a word…). So here goes everything!

Number 1:

I looooooove books!

No, seriously- I probably can’t live without reading. Despite the fact that I do more than seven extracurricular classes, I still tear through a couple of books per week. I read faster than the average kid my age, but I know others who read just as fast as me. My favorite genres are mostly fantasy, mythology and realistic fiction.

Number 2:

Because I love books too much, I can’t stop writing without a 2.

Basically, some of my favorite fantasy series’ are:

  • Harry Potter
  • Percy Jackson and The Olympians
  • Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus
  • Magnus Chase
  • The Kane Chronicles
  • Trials of Apollo
  • The Red Queen
  • Throne of Glass
  • The Shiva Trilogy
  • The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
  • The Chronicles of Narnia

And my favorite fantasy books are:

  • The Girl Who Drank the Moon
  • The Phantom Tollbooth
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
  • Matilda

And my favorite realistic fiction books:

  • The Fault In Our Stars
  • Turtles All The Way Down
  • Will Grayson, Will Grayson
  • An Abundance of Katherines
  • Counting By Sevens
  • Out Of My Mind
  • Kira-Kira
  • Inside Out And Back Again
  • One For the Murphys
  • The Lions of Little Rock
  • The Romeo and Juliet Code
  • Romeo Blue
  • What My Mother Doesn’t Know
  • Despereaux
  • Wonder
  • The Secret Garden
  • The Little Princess
