Hiiii there everyone!!! I just got back from my 1 week long summer camp and I met many amazing people at camp and this year is my seventh (7th) year at camp! What's up?!?!

Wow, seventh year!! That’s awesome! I got to a camp in Florida for a week in July! Pretty nervous but excited too!

Okay y’all QUIZ TIME!! Since there are quite a few new members I thought basic questions would be nice so we could all get to know each other better! 1. What was the best movie you have seen this year (2024) so far? 2. Do you enjoy listening to podcasts? If so, which ones your fav? 3. Who are some role models or people you really look up to? 4. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be? 5. What is your favorite meal of the day? 6. What are some of your favorite hobbies? MY ANSWERS: 1. Unsung Hero (so good, I really recommend it! But bring tissues! 🤧) 2. Yes and I am currently really loving Stay True with Madison Prewett Troutt 3. I really look up to Sadie Robertson Huff, Mōriah Smallbone, and Madison Prewett Troutt (plus my parents are huge role models in my life too!) 4. I kind of want to visit Nashville. I’ve gone there once but never left the freeway 5. Lunch! 6. Listening to music, hand lettering, reading, and just relaxing….I hope you all enjoyed the quiz and I look forward your answers! 😃

1) Possibly "Timeless Christmas" I watched a Christmas movie in May haha! 2) I don't, I never understand podcasts because I can't hear them!! 3) My mom, few of counselors at my summer camp, and few of staffs at camp! 4) Portugal or Spain! 5) Lunch (idk why) 6) maybe collecting and doing puzzles, and definitely reading!

I luv Timeless Christmas and in my opinion watching Christmas movies in May totally awesome! Visiting Portugal or Spain would be so fun! Thanks for replying!

Alright! I was hoping you would do this. 1. Umm.... I haven't seen too many good movies, but I would say, Rocky or, Sight, (Warning, it may make you cry, as it did my mom.) Oh, and also, Rise of the Beasts. 2. (I don't really listen to podcasts. that much.) I could say which one me and my dad do, but I feel as though some would be offended, (Politics). 3. Role model? Rocky Balboa, as I like how he never gives up, no matter how hard it gets. 4. Umm, I have always wanted to go to Hawaii, and Universal Studios Oh, and also, do you mean Nashville Indiana about one of the places you want to go? 5. I would have to say lunch too! 6. My fav hobbies? Working out, trying to upgrade my computers with the budget of pocket fuzz and a shoe string. Putting hop up parts on my go-kart, riding my bike, and going fast. I also like restoring old rusty mowers and reselling them. (the money is saved for a car). Well, that wraps it up! Thanks for this Techfashion!

I want to watch Sight so badly!!!! And I meant Nashville Tennessee, I didn’t know there was a Nashville in Indiana! 😂Thanks for replying!

The Rocky movies I like. are Rocky 3 and 4.

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

Well, hey! At least on the bright side, you get to start school way later than the rest of us!

Oh no! Don't worry, it'll come soon!!

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

Congrats! I’m currently reading the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas, and I’m really enjoying it so far (I’m on the second book, Crown of Midnight)! If you ever decide to read it, I recommend reading The Assassin’s Blade before the actual first book.

Nice! My latest read is called the secrets necklace, I read the first one years ago, and I thought that I might as well finish the 2nd one

Congrats! I just finished 'Salt and Sugar' by Rebecca Carvalho. I'm starting 'I'm the Girl' by Courtney Summers. I've heard good things about it, so I'm excited!

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).

Fantasy is my favorite genre! I’m like 1/4 thru the second book, and it is a bit slow, but I hear it gets progressively better further on.

If you like fantasy, I would recommend the series the "Land of Stories" by Chris Colfer. It is excellent!

I love the Land of Stories, too! It’s a really easy read, but it was my fav series for some time

I am currently reading the book "Swiss Family Robinson" by Johann David Wyss. It is kind of an adventure kind of book.

I'm picky too! I would recommend A Faraway Island... It's historical fiction, and it takes place in the summer of 1939

Okay I’m totally picky too! I would suggest “So This Is Love” by Elizabeth Lim. It’s my favorite book of all time and it’s a reimagined version of the Cinderella story! It’s SO GOOD and it kind of fantasy!

Oh I've heard of it before! I'll definitely put it on my tbr, thanks for the recommendation!!!

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!

The Red Pyramid? Is that part of the Kane Chronicles series?

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.

I luv quotes too! Something my mom suggested for me to do was to create a running list of quotes that speak to you. It is really fun to collect and really helps me get through some tough days. Anyway it’s cool that you already know what you want to be! Btw I’m 14 too!

And, it is good you have a list of quotes that can help you through being a teenager. (I struggle daily) Becoming a teenager it is kinda cool, but at the same time, I don't know..... I seem to get in trouble a lot more than I used to, LOL.

I agree, being a teen in 2024 definitely takes strength and moxie! 😂

Oh cool! I like talking to people my age, as they understand me better! Also, about becoming a police officer, I really don't know yet, Because my true dream job, is being a mechanic. (my parents do not want me to as it is pretty low paying) But that is my true dream job, as I am very passionate about working on cars.

Always listen to your parent's advice, I’ve learned that my parents are very wise! Also being passionate about something is really important for life
