This is unexpected
 Look! Pretty picture! That alone will attract followers, no?

I got to be the first of Ms. Courtney's Blogs of Note on Storing up Treasures. I knew she would pick from us, but I didn't know they would be in the actual order we were commenting. 
 Does this demand an acceptance speech? 

Hi! Welcome to my blog! My name is Amaranthine Degada and this blog has been a continuous source of blessing in my life.
I love Jesus, Star Wars, writing, and dance, and that is what I blog about(in order of frequency.) 

I love God: I go to Saddleback Valley Community church and I play keyboard in the band there. Something I've been struggling with lately is believing that God made me to suit an unique plan he has for me. I want to be smarter, prettier, more talented. I just have to believe that God didn't make me like [insert name here] for a reason. I have no idea what that reason is,  I just know it exists.

Star Wars: Um...yeah. It's kind of this little thing:eherm lifetime obsession: of mine. See other posts for details.

Writing and Reading: I'm revising a novel I just wrote. I love fantasy and historical fiction. I won't post it here, but I will publish it and proceeds will go to the Buy Amaranthine Degada An Ipad Fund. Just kidding. I probably won't be able to publish it, let alone sell  a copy.

Dance: Hip hop, ballet, and jazz. It's one of my favorite hobbies but also one of my biggest frustrations. More on that later.

So! That's me(and my excessive use of exclamation marks). I want to become famous, but only if it's God's plan for me. They say you can't get famous writing about random things on a blog, but you'll see. You'll see.

 I hope I write about stuff you're interested in. If you're not interested in it, I hope I can make you interested in it. 

Oh yeah, and I attend high school at home. And I mean serious homeschooling, not my-parents-tried-it-for-a-year-because-I-fail-at-socialization homeschooling. I've never been to a public school.

That was a very convoluted speech. I hope you wrangled some sense out of it. Happy New Year.

Read some of my other posts. You'll get a better idea of who I am. Except my Her Universe post. That one was strangely received. (Great, now I know all of you will go look it up.)



  1. Am I the only one who doesn't read this ladies blog? o.o; Whats it even about?

    I love love love that picture! :D Thanks for the new wallpaper! Actually my blogosphere (revised of course) is my wallpaper and I like that.

  2. I haven't read it I'm going to check it out though! Cool picture and Happy New year! Good post Amaranthine! ;)

  3. Love love love this! I love your writing style--your wit and your honesty! As wife of a worship pastor, and part of the worship team, I understand the I-want-to-be-pretty-like-her and why-didn't-I-get-that-gifting thoughts. It's important to remember that those people can't do what God created YOU to do. There would be a hole, a gap, something missing if we spent our days trying to chase down someone else's calling. I have become a follower and I will be following you on your journey!! Great to "meet" you!!


Amaranthine <3's you. Thanks for the comment!
