Hey! I’m Madi. I love adventure. Welcome to Adventure in the Air.
I’m from my other blogs you may have heard of: Delightful World of Dolls, Life Undefeated, and Madison Grace (Author). If you don’t know me, I’m an 18-year-old blogger, writer, doll collector, and minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This is my personal blog, where I share everything that wouldn’t make sense to share on my other themed blogs. Yes, it’s a lot of blogs. I’d bet today’s royalties I’ve been blogging longer than you; I can have four blogs if I want. ;D
For all my seven years of blogging, I’ve taken care to have “professional”, reader-oriented blogs. When I started my second blog, a personal and ministry blog, I felt its focus shifting more towards ministry and less of a personal thing.
I started an author blog to remedy that, but that needs to stay “professional”, too, for a future editor to look at when I pitch a proposal. (I’m a future bestselling author.)
So, at long last, I decided to create my fourth blog, using the URL I had originally chosen for my personal + ministry blog (which is now lifeundefeated.org).
Anything and everything can happen at this stream-of-conscious personal blog, and probably will.
Whether I share my life philosophies, writing, photography, or whatever, I just want to say one thing throughout this blog: life is beautiful. Life is an adventure.
Please take time to listen to my favorite song in the whole world by my favorite artist. ♥
♪ life is black and blue, happy then it’s sad / but if you call it an adventure then it ain’t so bad / together we touch the sky / wherever we go we fly / forever we know adventure’s in the air tonight / our dreams will come alive ♪
Feel free to introduce yourself below if we have similar interests. I love meeting new people or getting to know friends better. ?
Madi, you started a personal blog. YAY! Wow, seriously, girl, four blogs. And I’m busy with two and a YouTube Channel. XD. Tips on how you keep up with it all, please!
I just finished watching season four of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and IT IS SO GOOD. I may have gotten confused a lot but oh well.
YAAAY YOU FOLLOWED! Thanks for stopping by 😀 Well, it helps that I’m taking another little break from my other blogs and channels and focusing on this personal one for fun while I continue to recover. So you’re doing better than I am. XD
Ooh, my friends love that show! I haven’t seen any of it, but it sounds really cool.
Thank you. Well, you’ve had health problems and I haven’t so…..
WELL OF COURSE I FOLLOWED. You’re the one who got me into blogging in the first place.
Ooh, yeah, it’s a cool show and pretty clean. Not 100% unfortunately but nothing that can’t be filtered out easily. And, hey, the American Girl movies are pretty much completely clean. Molly’s and Chrissa’s are my favorite.
P.S This is technically a doll question but do you still have your Girl of Many Lands dolls?
Darn those health problems, once they’re gone I’ll be back to blogging regularly with ya!
AWWW THANK YOU SO MUCH, that makes me so happy :’)
OOH, really? If it’s clean I’ll try watching it some time. Do you know if it’s available to be filtered on VidAngel? That’s the filtering service we use.
Yesss, I love the AG movies! Hard to choose a favorite, but Molly’s was great. I think I love all of them. XD
P.S. Yes, I do! I still have Neela, Cécile, Isabel, and Leyla if I’m spelling all their names right. Do you have any?
I’m not sure if it’s available on VidAngel. I would say it’s probably about the level of the 2012 Avengers movie. Not super clean but cleaner than lots of other shows.
YES! Molly’s is great.
P.S. Cool! No, I don’t have any but my grandmother [who’s a doll collector, too] has Isabel. She might have Cecile, too.
Ooh, okay, gotcha!
P.S. That’s so neat! Isabel and Cécile (or is it Cecile since she’s not Cécile Rey, Idek :’)) are such gorgeous dolls ? Have you read GOML Cecile’s book? IT WAS SO GOOD. Ten-year-old me devoured it.
Also I think you already know my interests but I’ll post them again: dolls, acting, writing, video making, taekwondo, skateboarding, sports, watching movies/TV series, photography, art, my pets, animals in general, pretty clothes, the outdoors, God, friends/family, reading awesome blogs.
We share so many of the same interests! YAAAY FOR WRITING! Ooh, taekwondo? Do you take lessons?
Yup. I just started last week. I’m not the best student in the class but not the worst. I think taking dance for a few years helps.
Ooh, kick some butt! Good luck!
If you’d like to have a professional ninja hunting you down the rest of your life, steal one.- *pulls on ninja mask* is that a challenge? ?
Jk. Probably. XD
Most crazily, ~Olive
*pulls katana sword from sheath* Is it? ? XD
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ *pulls out two katana just in case*
Most crazily, ~Olive
I can fight with one katana and my other hand tied behind my back! 😀
Ha! Your show of skill has only limited you, my two hands and two swords shall easily defeat you now! ?
Ah, but my one hand is more skilled than both of yours combined! ?
Is nooooooot *blows raspberry* ?
*stomps around upset like a five year old*
Ooh, that’s cool! My BFF does taekwondo!
HIHIHIHIHIHIHHIHIHI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Yup, still super hyper, except that no one IRL would know that. ?) I never got a chance to comment on your DWOD post, but I’ve been meaning to! BTW, CHLOE”S OUTFIT IN THAT WAS SO COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anywhoodles, how you doing?
WOOOOOHOOOOO, ANNA’S HERE!! (Same though, barely anyone seens my hyper side!)
And thank you so much! Olive from http://hiddenhollowagcrafts.blogspot.com/ made it — isn’t it so epic?
And I’m doing good, how are you? Thanks so much for following and stopping by! I love to hear from you!
YES, IT’S SO COOL!!! Olive did SUCH a good job making it! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!
Glad you’re good! I’m good as well! ? YAY, I LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU, TOO!
Yes!! HOW IS SHE SO TALENTED LIKE SERIOUSLY. XD
Oh that’s awesome! I’m so glad you’re good! ? AWW THANKS!
EEP! I love that song now! The words are amazing!
Isn’t it GREAT? ??
Heyyyy! I found your blog through you following mine, and I just wanted to say THANK YOU!! I followed you back, because I couldn’t help but follow such an amazing blog as your’s. It’s such a pleasure to meet you and ahhhh I love you t-shirt in your gravatar pic.
Have an amazing day!
You are so welcome, and THANK YOU for following me too!! I’m so glad you like my blog, that means so much! I’ve seen you comment around before and found one of your posts when searching for things in the Reader and just had to follow. ? Thanks so much for stopping by!
Of course!! It’s my pleasure. Glad I found you. 🙂 <3
*waves* Just found your blog and it’s really cool.
Any chance you’re on the Young Writer’s Workshop? I feel like I’ve seen you somewhere online before. (wow that sounds creepy. XD)

I actually used to be! I was a featured member — if they still have that section, you can read the interview. I’m not on it anymore though, but I’ve been blogging for a very long time so maybe I stuck out in your memory somewhere! ? Thanks for stopping by!
Ah. How long ago? I was there from last Feb-April.
I was on there from January-September 2018.
Ah, we just missed each other!
Aww so close! ?
Also, I nominated you for a tag! https://growingintofriends.com/2020/01/25/10-things-to-love-about-my-mom-a-blog-tag/
Thank you so much — that means a lot!
HELLO HELLO HELLOOOOOOOOOO
AHHH wait Matthew Parker is amazing! *literally so excited to find another bean who loves him* Love that song. <3 What other artists do you enjoy?
I gotcha. I'm also a future best-selling author. Just sayin'. *cough* I've also got a reputation among my family as a psycho potato, can you say the same?? ?
I've always loved the thought of adventure. Next to nothing happens in my little corner of the world. 😛 Sometimes just the little elements of life are my adventure (like the time i almost set myself on fire during a science experiment eheheheh. heh.), so I'm not *too* depraved. ?
Anywho, I love your blog design!! I don't usually like pink a lot, but you're rockin it. 😀 <3
OOOOOOH IT’S KENECHI. I see you comment around everywhere! Please to finally meet you.
UM YES MATTHEW PARKER FANS FOR THE WIN *eternally sobs of happiness* I literally just ordered a T-shirt from him.
My other four favorite artists are GAWVI, NF, LZ7, and Capital Kings! What other artists do you like?
Why, hello fellow future bestselling author! See you on that NYT list. What genre do you write?
Ah yes, nearly setting oneself on fire! Too great of an opportunity to pass up. XD
Thank you so much! Hahaha, I love pink (no, really?) so I figured… WHY NOT GO PINK OVERLOAD. Thanks for the epic comment, and it’s awesome to hear from you! ?
Haha, yep. I’ve also seen *you* around everywhere, but never actually got around to meeting you! 🙂
Oooooh, GAWVI and NF are great! I must admit, I used to not like rap at all, but I’ve grown quite fond of NF. 😀 Some artists I like are for KING & COUNTRY, gray, Imagine Dragons, TobyMac, Tauren Wells… other than that, I listen to a ton of completely random songs from random people. I also like some of Shonlock’s. 🙂
I write a bunch of everything. xD I like writing action/adventure stuff tho. My most recent WIP is pretty much a medieval fantasy… I think. It might not be fantasy. We’ll see. xD You?
My pleasure. 😉 Yes, although it depends on the type of pink. I like salmon pink. 😛
Sorry I’m just now replying to this! I’ve heard of (and like!) a ton of those artists (including Shonlock)!
Ooh, MEDIEVAL? That sounds absolutely amazing! I hope you write it soon so I maybe get to read it one day. 😉
Salmon pink is so nice!
I think my whole comment disappeared… *distant wailing*
No it didn’t, my site is just a huge butt and never lets anyone know their comment is awaiting moderation. :’’)
hi Madi!! I just found this new blog and it’s beautiful!! just wanted to let you what an amazing job you’re doing here and how much you inspire me! keep the good work up!!
AWWW, thank you so much Gaby! ❤️
heyo! i’ve seen your icon around the blogosphere and thought i’d check out your blog … it’s awesome! happy i landed here 🙂 believe it or not, i’ve also been a wordpresser for about 7 years now too … but my account was collecting dust for a couple years on the shelf until 2019. now i’m back to blogging and loving it more than ever :)) anyways, happy to stumble upon your site and i look forward to reading more! <3
power to the local dreamer ||-//
I’ve seen your name around the blogosphere as well and it was so exciting to see you comment! Thank you so much, Jul <3
Hi Madi. Can you refer blogs that don’t have to have a WordPress, Facebook, Google, and Twitter accounts? Cause when I found a blog through you that I really liked, It was super disappointing when you had to have a WordPress account to comment or whatever.
I’m not familiar with blogs that require a WordPress account to comment. That’s interesting! Is creating a WordPress account not an option for you?
Its crazy to have an account for something to comment!
I don’t think I’ll be able to get a WordPress account right now. Your post about your Quarantine Adventures sound AWESOME! Oh, wow, hmm…. you have a interesting “love” life. 😉 XD!
No worries! And thanks so much! LOL XD
Hi Madi! I just found your blog. I can’tt wait to see more of your posts!
So nice to meet you, Lilly! Thanks so much for checking out my blog!
Hi Madi. ‘Tis I, BRIANAAAAAAAAAAA.
I love this blog so much, even though I only discovered it…*checks calendar*…Wednesday?? Yeah. That sounds…right. .
Thank you so so much!! I’m so glad you like it!!
Hello!!!! I just found this blog!! I LOVE IT!!!!!
Also, in the side of your blog you have Matthew Parker lyrics?!?!?!?! I LOVE Matthew Parker. (My bff is literally his biggest fan EVER!) Have you heard Snapshot?
NO WAY!!! I AM A HUUUUUGE MATTHEW PARKER FAN! I am so happy you liked him too! YES, I love Snapshot!
I didn’t realize you had a fourth blog. That’s awesome, slightly random question what books have you been reading recently? I’m currently rereading Frankenstein and The Picture of Dorian Gray. And what’s your favorite genre(s) to write in? I love writing in fantasy, and gothic.
Thanks so much for reading, Quinley! Lately I’ve actually been reading the Joss book from AG! My favorite genre to write in is historical fiction. Those books sound great! Have you written anything lately?
You’re welcome. 🙂 Oh cool, how are the books about Joss so far? I heard about them, but haven’t read them yet. (Though I like the basic premise, especially because this is AG’s first disabled character).
Oh cool, historical fiction is awesome. What’s your favorite time period to write about? I have in fact, I am working on a serial story for my blog and on my Gothic novel, Dolls of Wax, Eyes of Glass. Have you?
I’m only a couple chapters in to the first book, but I like it so far, it’s pretty cool! I love the basic premise, too. It’s great to see Joss going for what she loves despite any disability.
I write about feudal Japan in 1680, right at the start of the Edo period! Yooo, that sounds super cool! I’ve been working on that novel about feudal Japan, it’s called Warfare Book I [title to be determined haha].
I wish AG would make more dolls who have disabilities, because I’ve seen too many stories where characters are told they can’t succeed because of their disability and it is really sad. It’s good though that AG wrote a positive story about Joss though and didn’t have her disability define her. 😀
Oh neat, I’m really interested in China and India, I haven’t done a whole lot of research on Japan (yet). But I love those particular countries and their histories. 🙂
Also in terms of writing, I have several different projects that I’m working on, I haven’t gotten around to writing all of them yet but I plan to one day, two of which are Fantasy books I hope to get around to writing one day, and one is another gothic book. Outside of writing what have you been doing recently? 🙂 I’ve been working on acting and have been filming myself doing that. (And doing a doll stop motion too). Also what music have you been listening to recently? I’ve been listening to music by Karliene and Erutan.
Me too! When I was younger I’d read the AG books and feel sad that I couldn’t do what the AG characters could do because I was always in pain. I was happy to see Joss and her not letting her disabilities hold her back!
That is so cool! I haven’t done a lot of research on China and India either, but one of my best friends’ brother was a missionary in India for a while!
Okay, that’s so funny you mention acting… I just joined my homeschool group’s drama troupe and auditioned for a musical! Have you ever done anything like that? Also, how often do you like to write? Recently, I have been listening to “With Me (Flavio Stonex Remix)” by Jack Dylan and “Dollar Bills” by Built By Titan! I haven’t heard of Karliene and Erutan, what genre is that music?
Oh, wait I realize I worded that in a confusing way, sorry about that. I am doing a lot of research on China and a little on India, but I haven’t done any on Japan. Sorry for the confusion. I’m also researching the religions, Buddhism (and I hope Taoism in the future), and I am learning Eastern philosophy in general, so that I can study the religions more deeply. 🙂
Oh that’s cool, I don’t tend to act in musicals but I act in plays a lot, I have acted in several Shakespeare plays and I tend to do acting on my YouTube channel, as of right now. 🙂 It’s hard to describe what genres Erutan’s and Karliene’s music are exactly, but I would best describe them as being folk. What genres do you like listening to? And I try to write every day, how often do you write?
Oh haha you’re good! Ooh that’s cool, I know a bit about Buddhism because that’s one of the main religions in Japan of the time I’m writing in! I don’t know much about Taoism though!
WOW that sounds so fun! Have you ever acted in Hamlet? Ooh, folk music is super fun. Genres I’ve been loving lately are Christian EDM (electronic dance music)!
I try to write as often as I can. I have a monthly, then weekly word count goal I aim for. It usually ends up being a few days a week, but during events such as Camp NaNoWriMo, it is almost every day! Do you do any of the NaNo events?
Oh neat, I’m doing a whole course on Buddhism, so I’ve been trying to learn as much about it and other Eastern religions as I can. 🙂
No, but I want to. One day I hope to act in a production (and a movie version) of Hamlet as Hamlet. 🙂 But that’s neat that you bring it up given that Hamlet is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. What’s your favorite Shakespeare play(s)?
I’ve participated several times, NaNo is actually what got me into writing everyday and as much as I do. 🙂 Which do you prefer doing Camp NaNoWriMo or NaNoWriMo?
That sounds fascinating!
I hope you can, that sounds so fun. I actually don’t know a lot of Shakespeare plays, but I’d like to be more familiar with them, lol!
YAY a NaNo fan! I prefer Camp NaNo since the goal is customizable — what about you?
It really is. 😀
I hope you have a chance to learn more about Shakespeare’s plays some day. 🙂
I prefer Camp NaNo as well for the same reason, I like to create goals that are challenging for me but reachable. I also like the cabin/group aspect of Camp NaNo, and I actually am running a Fantasy writing group/cabin on the site.
Random question, what movies have you been watching recently? 😀
Me too — the Camps are just so much more customizable and fun! So are the groups.
Recently I watched a couple of the Divergent films! What about you?
Sorry this took so long to respond to!
What groups are you a part of on NaNoWrimo? (If you’re comfortable sharing), I run a Fantasy group. 🙂
I recently watched The Haunting of Rosalind, it’s an older TV movie, but it’s really neat. And that’s cool, have you watched any good TV shows recently?
That’s so fun! I’m not in a whole lot of groups, just one or two I think. I’m also in a couple NaNo groups that run on discord.
I love older TV movies! That sounds really neat! What is it about? I have been watching a TV show called Jack Ryan from Amazon. (We watch it with filters that cut out the inappropriate parts :))
Oh cool. 😀
It’s a M.R. James’ story put to screen, it’s really fun to watch because they have limitations given that it is a TV movie about what they can show on screen, so have to get creative with how they show the ghost and the supposed haunting.
Oh neat, what is Jack Ryan about?
That sounds fascinating! Especially with how they have to get creative with it.
It’s about Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan book character, basically about an analyst who goes on a lot of secret missions. We haven’t been watching it recently though, mostly just Christmas movies this month! XD
How did your Christmas go? Wishing you a happy New Year!
