hey there friends!
          	
          	I just posted the next chapter for Ice! If you would like to check it out, here is the link: https://www.wattpad.com/907258515-ice-127-a-meaningless-apology
          	
          	I hope that everyone is doing alright. I am sorry that I've been a little absent recently. Things have been a little crazy and honestly not so good on my end. My mom's cousin was diagnosed with cancer in his spine, brain, and liver. My mom got to visit with him and say her goodbyes, which was great. But between that and a heavier workload, my brain is just kind of all over the place right now. I'm doing my best to get caught up with everything and updates (at least for Ice) should resume as normal after this week. 
          	
          	I really appreciate your patience and support. Thank you so much for all that you do!! Y'all mean the absolute world to me ❤ I hope that you have a super awesome rest of your week ❤❤❤

@Nan1035 Thank you so much! I really appreciate you! That is definitely a good poem to keep in mind right now and I appreciate you sharing it! ❤❤ I'm definitely taking a moment to breathe and eat some chocolate right now, haha! ❤❤❤

@Serayna take care always. I'll be waiting for you, we all are. As one of my fave poem said: Go placidly amidst the noise and the haste,but remember what peace there may be in silence.  I always repeat the entire poem by the way when life goes crazy. Especially now. Have some coffee  laced with wine. Or chocolates. Problems wont go away but you'll feel ok for a few mins.

Hi! Not sure if it's just for me but the last two chapters of ICE (124 and 125) are swapped (so 125 is before 124)

Serayna

@AngieWolff Hey there friend! I'm so sorry for the confusion! When I tried to post the last update, I accidentally posted chapter 125 before chapter 124. The chapters appear to be in order on my end (both on the website and the app) so I am not totally sure how to fix it. Are you able to refresh the book/log out + back in? If that doesn't work, please definitely let me know! I'm so sorry for any inconvenience! ❤❤❤

p.s. One of my best friends created a t-shirt design to bring more awareness to the Black Lives Matter movement! 100% of the profit will be donated to a legitimate and reputable outlet to help combat injustice against African Americans in America. This particular design is available on t-shirts, hoodies, tote bags, posters and many more items! Avery is an incredibly talented artist and I'm so proud of him!!

hey friends! 
          
          I wanted to share some of the resources that I have come across to help support the Black Lives Matter movement. A lot of these were found through Twitter. There are petitions that take roughly two minutes to sign and links to where you can make donations (if you are able!). Someone also shared a YouTube playlist of videos that are donating their ad revenue in support of the movement. This particular playlist simulates a "natural" viewing pattern and maximizes ad revenue. It's a really good way to help out if you are unable to donate and they mixed some awesome songs in to listen to!! 
          
          Here is where you can go to help:

          Also, please feel free to share some of your favorite books written by black Wattpad authors in response to this message here! I have created a reading list of some of my own favorites and I would love to be able to add more to it and show support! ❤❤❤
          
          I know that this week has been heavy. It's been so awesome to see Wattpad come together as a community in support of the Black Lives Matter movement!! I appreciate you all so much and hope that you have a rockin' weekend!!! ❤❤

My heart is absolutely broken with the violence and blatant racism that runs rampant in this world. I know that I will never truly understand the horrors that people of color face every day.
          
          I just want to say that I see you. You are incredibly loved and valued. You are so important. You contribute so much beauty to this world. You are so strong and honestly so incredibly inspirational. You matter. ❤
          
          There is a trend going around on Wattpad, where authors create a reading list on their profile to support black authors and the Black Lives Matter movement. I want to support as much as I possibly can. If you can, please leave links to your stories and/or links to your favorite stories written by black authors. I will try to add as many as I can!! I also strongly encourage non-black Wattpaders to do the same and create a reading list to share support.

heyo friends!
          
          I hope that everyone is having an awesome week so far! I just wanted to let you know that Ice chapter 125. A Heartbeat is now live and ready to read! You can clink here to go read it: https://www.wattpad.com/872157050-ice-125-a-heartbeat
          
          I am still working on edits for my next YouTube video. I'm hoping to have it ready this weekend. I think I am slowly getting into a groove!  I'm a little hesitant to post it though. I make quite a few self-deprecating jokes throughout and so I'm not sure how entertaining it will be lol. 
          
          Anyways, thank you all so much for your continued support and patience! I really appreciate you all so much. You are so freaking awesome!! I hope that you all have a rockin' day! ❤❤❤

          p.s. what are some of your favorite youtube channels? My absolute favorite is Jenna Marbles. I really enjoy Simply Nailogical and Safiya Nygaard too!

hey friends!
          
          I know it's a little late but I wanted to try to post the next chapter for Ice before I went to bed. Today has been a relatively rough day for me and it's been harder to sit down and make time to post. I really hope that y'all are doing better and are safe and healthy!! ❤ Here is the link to the new chapter for Ice: https://www.wattpad.com/872153527-ice-123-an-arrest
          
          I hope that you all have a super awesome week/weekend!!! I really appreciate you all so much!! Thank you for your endless patience and support! You all mean the absolute world to me! ❤
