“So, Rebekah, what are you doing later?” Daniel asks me.
The clock on my phone reads 9:45pm. I squint at Daniel like he’s lost his mind. “What do you mean later?”
I blink three times, slowly. I planned on scurrying home and brewing a fresh mug of chamomile. I planned on stretching out the tendonitis in my wrists and wishing the cat sweet dreams. I planned on tidying my shoes and checking the status of my teeth. I planned on saying my prayers.

I’ve created a reputation for myself.

It isn’t what you think.

I recently finished the Gossip Girl series on Netflix, and like any Netflix junkie who cannot cope with the stress of finding a new show to watch, I simply went back to season one and started again.

I, like any faithful brunette who feels for those who are constantly over-shadowed by the bombshell blonde, have a soft spot in my heart for Blair Waldorf, and rightly so. She is an incredible, fictional, girl-who-I-please-want-as-a-best-friend, real to me!, human being. And I love her for many reasons.

Coffee is dear to my heart. It began at a young age, tasting my mom’s coffee ice cream for the first time. Then I worked at a coffee shop for two years and one thing led to another. . .
I’ll just get into it. Because as soon as I finish this post, I get to run downstairs and get free, you-know-what warm delicious goodness from the hotel lobby.
This hotel is wonderful.

When any woman is in a glorified, high and honored position, she should be a lot of things.
Graceful. Intelligent. Quiet (when the moment calls for it). A leader. Strong. Mature.
I have my moments. Moments I walk into a room and exercise momentary restraint by not screaming “whoo does it STINK in here! Do you SMELL that? No really. Do you smell that?” and proceeding then, in an undertone, to lean over to my neighbor and murmur, “who do you think did it?”
Then I have my moments of complete and utter failure. Moments I look back on, tilt my head, and think: maybe that’s why I wouldn’t make a good first lady. . .

There are few things in life that I consider myself a true authority in.
Vanilla shakes, sarcasm, and keeping self-entertained are examples of such things.
But when it comes to being thrifty, saving money, and—yes, being broke—oh, my wisdom reigns supreme.
For example, you may be broke if. . .

Judge Paul, now presiding!
I’m only kidding; not really.
What is your favourite part of a shopping mall?
On the count of three, we’ll all reveal our answers as loud as we can. One…two…three…
Wonderful. How many of you also said “food court”?

I haven’t made a specific announcement that I’ve been writing a book. I know my tagline is Something to read as I work on my next novel. It alludes to the fact that I’m writing a book.
Anyhow. I, Rebekah Koontz, have written a book.

Everyone has their set of special skills.
Some of us possess skills the world isn’t ready for. We’re misunderstood—unappreciated, even. We are Superman.
One of my special skills happens to be
setting things ablaze burning things in our indoor, square fire-pit. Normal people call it a microwave.

This past December, I took you along with me on twenty-five days of my life.
Twenty-five days of my awkward face.
Those who watched seemed to enjoy it. Friends say they binge watched! So the videos aren’t boring!
I’d never done Vlogmas. I’d never done a vlog. I knew only the basics in YouTube editing. I was out of my mind to agree to this thing.
And now, I’m here to tell you what I learned.
