The Great Diary of Monay 💝


Inspired by @Kyra_Pearson :orange_heart::orange_heart: as the beautiful Kyra once said: “Get your reading glasses on!”

You might remember me always ranting about my older brother not doing anything. Well, now he’s in a program called Job Corps! It helps him with getting a job and education. He left for a little while but he’s back for the holidays and I honestly did not expect to miss him so much! He goes back this Sunday and will be coming back for his 21st birthday which is at the end of February. I am really proud of him!

I just went back to school yesterday after my winter vacation. I’m FREAKING over exams. I have four of them before the next semester starts and three of them are in a row! I’m SO not used to this and wasn’t expecting it. They could’ve AT LEAST given them before break! I’m studying like crazy and regretting not deciding to start studying earlier. I’m not worried about my theatre exam, World Geography exam, and my English exam. What I AM worried about is my Algebra exam and English TDA (Text dependent analysis). Before each one I’m going to pray and ask God to be with me during the tests.

I’ve gotten deep into my religious roots again! I am a Christian, but some of my actions and language said otherwise. I’ve now been studying my bible, wearing my cross, and praying every opportunity I get :two_hearts: I also go to church with my best friend every Sunday :two_hearts::two_hearts::two_hearts:

I am taken! Tomorrow will be a week for us :purple_heart:. He is a fellow Christian and doesn’t mind the distance we have because he says soon there will be no distance (referring to our future together). He respects that I’m saving myself until marriage too :sob::sob:. He’s someone from my dreams! We don’t get to talk that often right now, but whenever we do, we listen to each other’s voices and argue over who loves each other more :heart_eyes: I think of him every night that I’m not with him and I can’t wait to introduce him to my mom once I’m 16.

I have officially dedicated myself to my grades and trying to get into the college of my dreams: Winthrop university (@Kyra_Pearson currently goes there!) I plan on getting a Master’s degree in Art History and becoming a museum technician.

Expect updates. No promises that there’ll be a schedule to them but I’ll update :two_hearts:


Exams are over!!! And I gotta say, I’m quite satisfied with my results. I got a 71 on my algebra exam (it’s a C, but considering how badly I stressed myself out over it I’m really proud of myself), a 93 on my theatre exam, an 80 on my world geography exam, and a 95 on my english exam. I’m so proud of myself! All of the studying was totally worth it! I start my 2nd semester on Tuesday.

As for love, I’m single. Sadly me and the boy I told you about didn’t work out. I’m still in love with my ex, and me and him have a very complicated relationship. He gives me ALOT of mixed signals. He got me a phone and set the lock and home screen of a picture we took together because he knew I didn’t have one, but he has a girlfriend I think…? They’ve argued over me because of my constant flirting and trying to win him back and I felt really bad… He told me it wasn’t my fault but I feel like it is. All I know is he still loves me and I still love him and I’m putting myself on hold for him.

My brother is coming home this weekend, and doesn’t have to go back until Monday because of the holiday. I probably won’t be able to go to my friend’s house this weekend because of it but it’s fine. Speaking of her, I’m sorta worried about our friendship. She’s been really distant and awfully moody and easily agitated. I don’t know why. I hope we can work it out.

Alright. The Masked Freaking Singer. This show is gonna give me a heart attack!! First Antonio Brown, and then Tommy Chong?! Now I’m DYING to know who the poodle, raven, and bee is!!! This is officially my new favorite show. My mom and I watch it together and we love guessing who is behind the mask.

I have successfully published the first chapter to my blog! It’s about the beauty of family and friends. You can read it here: (yes self-promo, please don’t report me :joy:) I haven’t even started on tomorrow’s chapter because of this beautiful thing called procrastination but I will try my best to get it out. Love y’all!


Congrats on exams sis! :kissing_closed_eyes::two_hearts:




I just got home from my girlfriend’s house and it was the best weekend ever. I went on my first date with my girlfriend (also, my first date ever)!

On Saturday, she and her mom picked me up and we went out to eat. We went to an Italian restaurant and it was delicious. I had cheese manicotti and Erin has baked spaghetti with cheese on top. After, we went to get a couple of her mom’s friends and on the way there, we blasted Bruno Mars along with 90’s hits and sang them at the top of our lungs. Once we got her mom’s friends we went to a bowling alley.

This was my first time bowling, and I did really well! I got a few strikes and a spare. Erin and I were having an amazing time. At 11PM they turn off lights, turn on black lights and disco lights. We started dancing and jumping. Once we got tired, we sat down (me in front of her with her arms around my belly). We played one more game and then went home.

Once we got to her house we changed into pajamas and she introduced me to her dogs. There is Buck who is a plott dog, Callie who is a German shepherd mixed, and ruby who is a poodle. They were all smelling me like crazy because they probably smelled my dogs.

We fought them off the bed and lied down and talked. We talked until 1 in the morning (we lied down around 12). We got comfortable and after a moment of just silence she asked “do you want to cuddle?” My heart was pounding because I really did want to, but I’ve never cuddled. Yes, I believed I could mess up cuddling. She told me that I was the small spoon because she’s taller and she wrapped her arms around me and I felt her lay her head on my back. I felt so safe and comforted and it was just an amazing feeling.

Today we just stayed in bed and cuddled while watching movies. At some point we decided to do gold peal off mask :joy: it didn’t hurt and it was fun. After that we took a nap before I had to go home. It was the best weekend of my life and I can’t wait for our next date.


that’s so lovely sis, i’m so happy for you! certainly much better than my first ever date :joy:


Family life is improving significantly. I finally have a bedroom door. I got it taken off because of trying to run away last year :sweat:. But! My dad put it back on! It’s so weird honestly. I’m not used to having a door, so I leave it cracked at night when I sleep. I think my dad may be beginning to trust me. But knocks on wood I’m also going to start getting an allowance every friday if I keep the house and my room clean.

I’m going to save it up to A.) buy gifts for Erin and B.) buy ingredients to bake for Erin :joy_cat:. Our one month anniversary is coming up and I’m going to make her this jar filled with “I love you” phrases. My mom is also going to get us this bracelet set:

I’m also gonna bake some sugar cookies.

She loved everything I got her for Valentine’s Day. She named her bear prince, and was so excited to get all the candy I got for her. She was so surprised when the honors chorus went into her classroom and sang “Boo’d up” by Ella Mai. When I went to get her after class, she was blushing and I started to laugh and smile. I said “I had to” and I kissed her. This was the first Valentine’s Day where I wasn’t lonely and it was amazing!

My grades are good, but I haven’t really been keeping up with college stuff because I have been tired. I don’t study much either even though I should. But hey. A’s and B’s are fine with me.


The bracelets are here!

I’m going to bring them out when we go out to dinner this Friday. I’m so excited!!! I get to share this experience with my mom, the love of my life, and her mom. I’m going to make a toast when we get our drinks “To one month and many more” is what I’m going to say. Then, when we’re finished eating, I’m going to have my mom get the box she has them in and I’m going to give it to her to open. Then I get to spend the rest of the weekend at her house.


Those are so beautiful!


Erin and I are continuing to grow closer :two_hearts:. We have told each other many things, each of them very meaningful and helping our relationship grow stronger.

Today we talked about her exes, and I didn’t mind it at all. If I think about it, I’m pretty sure I’m the one who brought it up :joy:. When we get deep into discussion I don’t really care what we talk about. The conversation taught me what to do and what not to do. What to say and what not to say. I now know her boundaries and that she likes a little space.

While we were talking, I was sitting on her lap and she had her arms around my belly. She kept nuzzling my neck and putting her head on my back. I loved when she did it. I thought it was so cute and it made me feel special. Her birthday is next weekend and she is throwing a party. I get to go to her house on Friday, so I get to spend the weekend with her!

My love is turning 15 :heart_eyes:!

I’m happy to hear that you’re relationship is going well @MonaysMontage and @CharlieGrassiHoying. Have an amazing weekend and life is good.

I’m sorry that I made that assumption about the two of you @CharlieGrassiHoying and @MonaysMontage


Omg :joy: I’m flattered!

Ok, thank you for the support and time @CharlieGrassiHoying and @MonaysMontage.


I feel so bad saying that without asking and I apologize for that assumption.


We are very good friends. There is no need to apologize! I wouldn’t be surprised if other people thought we were a couple! :joy: We are sadly thousands of miles apart.


I think it’s better that the two of you should meet each other sometime in the future. It’s funny that people on here think the same way. :smile::smile::smile:


We plan on it!
