Welcome to the Nancy Drew blog!


Hey there y’all! I’m Rachel Vincent and I want to welcome you to my blog! I’m only a girl who loves books, cats, Jesus, and life. If you knew me you would probably say I’m just the blonde, blue-eyed girl who is averagely smart and loves laughing. I am obsessed with art and calligraphy, and reading is just the best for me. I’d love to show you guys some of my life, so enjoy!









Back From Vacay (basic Trip Diary)

Hey yall!

I just returned from Nashville so I have actual reason to say that now. Sort of. 🙂

For the first part of my trip I was in a large house in Tennessee for a family reunion on my dad’s side. It was super fun! I have lots of girl cousins which was great. I played lots of games with my aunts and uncles and we swam in the lake a whole bunch. We went tubing, and my uncle pulled us on his boat.

The next part of vacay was Nashville, Tennesse (gosh they know where Nashville is, Rachel). We walked around Broadway for a bit, ate lots of food (The Pharmacy is lowki the best burgers evahhh) and I took a lot of pictures, which I’ll have to post at some point. I also went to that trendy wing mural #whatliftsyou and got Krispy Kreme (what else)

I’m super glad to be back but I’m off to Washington DC very soon for a missions trip! I am so excited to go share the gospel of Christ so be watching out for a post on my next travel!

FUN NOTE: I got a penpal!!

Truth: If you could go on vacation with one person to anywhere, who would it be with and where?

Dare: Go for a walk and have a legit out loud conversation with yourself!


The Beginning of the Truth or Dare ERA!

Hey y’all

Okay so this is unrelated but I’m actually not southern!

Cowboy Dancing GIF

yes I know not all southern people are cowboys 😉

I just have a slight addiction to saying y’all. Is that all right with y’all or should I just say “Hey You!”? Cause that sounds like I have no idea what your name is, which is, like, obviously nooot true. Yup. Also, y’all has kinda turned into my thing. Yeehaa! *cringe*


As a kid (okat tbh it was last week) I loved playing Truth or Dare. Honestly you can’t get much better than a game where you are forced to say or do something that could definitely kill you! Ahh, the joys of childhood! I would play this game for hours with my friends because how else are we supposed to bond? Friendship bracelets you say? Does chevron SOUND like something I could do!

Don’t know what chevron is? It’s heck. the sudden death round of friendship bracelets. Say goodbye to the sweet days where a nice simple braid of three strings was acceptable!


Truth or Dare has always been a “fun” pastime where you basically figure out your friends’ crushes and then dare them into doing something weird to the crush. Such good kind fun, right?dividerver2

I want to share my most joyful pastime with you guys, so that’s why, instead of the “comment prompt” I’ll be providing a truth and a dare. You may choose which one you like and in the comments (oh crap so this is still a comment prompt) you can answer the truth or tell what happened when you did the dare. Feel free to also add all your overly kind, sappy comments along with it! Or hate. Whatever floats your goat!

Let’s kick this off!

Truth:                                                     Dare:

What is your favorite type of book?                                  I dare you to write YOLO on                                                                                                                 your hand and show it to the next                                                                                                     person you see.

my blog (why does this come up so much)

Hey, children of other people!

This is probably my 6th post this year on this topic (but I just finished the craziest book ever (ahhhhh) and so you can expect a post (ahhh again).

So my blog. Heh. Heh. Heh……. Anyways. So you know I’m doing a total redo of my blog (name/colors/ myself/etc.) so you’re probably just tapping your fingers on the table in a very ASMR manner (that video though), waiting for me to get a move on. *let’s get out with it rachel!*

Okay, so I’m having my blog done by the pros (aka Mukta @Born Free)   and I’ve been working with her on that (lemme tell you, it’s looking beayoooootiful). She is currently on a break right now though, so I decided I should tell you (but please, continue with the ASMR-I find it hilarious, no offense) .

I just wanted to let ya’ll know. But I decided to treat y’all to a little preview, I mean, why not 🙂 .

And here. the moment. the excitement.




I feel like I needed to share that joy with you. I laughed a little too hard.








…….No I didn’t just enter summer and look up lots of graduation memes 😉








Okay. I shared it. (no i didnt intentionally choose that one whaaaaa??) That is the tiniest taste of it (there is pink. Yes, always pink-it makes everything look pretty). I am so excited for this design to come out!!


Hope y’all are enjoying your weather, whatever season it is. Also, if you guys have Christmas in summertime, do you have no school in the winter? The thought just occurred (okay…I’ve been thinking about this for a while now) and I really want to know!

Please exit Rachel’s Weird Brain to your right and enjoy your day!


P.S did ya like the design? 🙂

PPS. There was trouble seeing the images-is it fixed?

Summer Poem

With summer on it’s way, I got some inspiration from all the beautiful weather. Hope you enjoy the poem!


Brightness of the sun,

Splashing in the pool,

Friends laughing,

Waves crash,

Sand sticking,

Warmth of the wind,

Having all the time,

Everything happening,

World shines,

Life loved.

Have you enjoyed summer so far? Which is your favorite season? I LOVE SUMMER (it’s also my birthday season :))



My Life in T-Shirts

Why It Can suck To Be a Lefty + Lefty Struggles

Hey guys! How are yall? I honestly have been so excited about this post and thinking about what I’ll write. I hope you guys enjoy, and let’s jump right in (because I just totally remembered how awful intros are) !


So if you didn’t know that I’m left handed then I totally understand, it’s not like I’m screaming my life onto every post I write…right??? Anyways, if you are a lefty then you probably understand everything right now and could click off of this post and click the follow button…yeah?

Alright, let’s get on to the first problem of being left-handed:

Getting Ink ALL OVER the Edge of Your Hand

I’m sure even the right-handers have this problem a bit but not WHENEVER YOU FLIPPING WRITE. You are just writing with your pencil or inky glitter pen when you look at the side of your hand, near you pinky finger, and it’s either blackened with led or purple from you ink, or a combination of the two, having built up from the day. The ink is all over your fingers and hand and nails and it looks awful.

     why are we so cursed in the writing world??



Smearing Everything You Write. Everything. No Exceptions. and this results in ink getting all over your hand. why. why. why. 

So my handwriting already isn’t beautiful, but it is definitely made worse by the fact that it is covered in ink splats! Calligraphy pages are marred in black smears and homework is messed up. Let’s not even talk about the whiteboard*! I sometimes have to write the homework up on a big whiteboard. I finish writing. I look back. All that I’ve written is smeared, mainly on the bottom. Everyone is like “seriously”.

*Says let’s not talk about it then precedes to do just that.

As you can understand, it sucks.


Bumping Elbows with the Person Sitting Next to You because your teacher didn’t realize what he’s doing PUTTING A LEFTY NEXT TO A RIGHTY…

Shoot, the desks at my school are all pushed up next to each other. I’m sometimes lucky enough to be put on the outside, having nobody on my left side, but other times I am pushed between two people and am constantly rubbing elbows. Not only does it cause me to make long stripes across the paper(ugh), but it can also cause me to inflict the same pain on them. SORRY! Yall I don’t know why God designed people to have different dominant hands (or why we aren’t all those spedecial ambidextrous peoples) but He has a plan (to make my handwriting suck?).


Getting Ink ALL over your hand and being laughed at and crying and being embarrassed


yayyyyy. Alright so I’ll put it out there that I am white. No I’m not racist yall. Sorta on the pale side during winter, so imagine how awful it is to randomly change skin color on the side of your hand and fingers. This can result in me becoming partially green or purple. Yay life. Image result for ink on hands





Being Mentally Abused Every Time You See Somebody Write Right-Handed

Oh my gooooooooossssh why are there so many righties??? Only a flipping 10% OF PEOPLE ARE LEFTIES (lefties unite!) HOOOWWW! Honestly though I can never watch somebody write with their right hand for too long because I AM SO CONFUSED at how they can do that likeeeee whaaaa? Does it confuse right handed people though? I’m not sure but maybe?? I have no idea but I do know that watching YouTubers handletter gives me a headache (they are all right-handed yeesh).


In Conclusion…

While researching and looking for pictures (yeah i did work for this post) I saw the thing I need. I want it. It would save my excuse of a life. It is my new love. It is the half-hand glove. Alas, I shall share it:

Image result for ink on hands

Smear guard, saves your hand from getting inky, if you want to send it to me that is awesome, is not disgustingly hideous (mostly). Please. Please Please. Thank you.

Anyways, comment below if you’re a lefty, if you are a righty, if you experience problems such as this, or if you are a spedecial ambidexterous person, I wanna know!

Love yall!!


Changes and New Phases

You have probably realized things are changing around here-i.e. the name i.e. the design i.e. the posts. I have decided on a brand new name, a brand new design and have gone to Mukta about it. I am so very excited and I hope you are too!

I am going to comb through my posts and probably delete some of the ones that I don’t feel contribute to this blog’s personality, so if you can’t find some there’s a reason. I will also probably be adding my own pictures to the photo gallery instead of ones that I chose when I was younger.

I know that I haven’t been here but I have been planning new posts that I think yall will like!

I am so ready to be back here and better than ever!


The Girl Who Owned a City (comic review)

Hey everyone!

I am always going through comic crazes where I have to read comic books all the time. Something about pictures underneath words is just the craziest, most exciting thing. It is just so much more different from a regular book!

Image result for the girl who owned a city comic

This book is based off of a normal book, published in 1975, which I haven’t read. This book was so exciting so I decided to review it!


The GIRL WHO OWNED A CITY is very LORD OF THE FLIES-esque. It’s fighting for your life because a virus has killed off all the adults in the world. You have to search for your own food and then defend it from the multiple gangs that are throughout the country. Lisa wants to fight for herself and Tod only when she realizes that all the other children can not survive on their own. Trying many times, she finally succeeds to make a place into a well-oiled machine, her very own city.


The main character was Lisa Nelson, who, with her brother Tod, and eventually children, friends, and gangs. The characters are all well developed, and Lisa often thinks to herself so you can really see what type of person she is.


The colors are so great and the drawing style is super great. The storyline is just drawn out perfectly. The emotions are totally shown in the panels and it’s not just square shaped panels!

The plot is well done and not cliche. You can follow it but everything is unexpected. You don’t see everything coming and you don’t see the entirety of the story before you’ve made it past a few pages.

     Have you read this book? Are you planning to? Should I do more reviews?
