August Wrap-Up: THINGS HAVE CHANGED

Well. I changed jobs. The reason that this wrap-up is 3 weeks late is because I have recently changed my entire routine, learned a ton of new skills, and skipped town for a house-sitting gig. I'm tired. It's been a lot of change in a short amount of time. Oh, AND I got my Piranesi… Continue reading August Wrap-Up: THINGS HAVE CHANGED

The Ice Lolly Book Tag

I survived a two-week heat wave. I'm now ready for fall. I found the Ice Lolly Book Tag (created by Louise @ Book Murmuration) over at AceReader. I had to google each of the sweets mentioned but they look and sound delicious. King cones with the chocolate bit at the end are still my favorite.… Continue reading The Ice Lolly Book Tag

July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

Well. It's been a couple of weeks, that's for sure. I have been trying to ward off full-on panic for about a month with mixed success. As I mentioned in my last post, my brain is soup. One good thing happened last month: my niece Josie was born. She and my sister-in-law are doing great… Continue reading July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

Cataloguing the Thoughts Swimming in My Soup Brain

I haven't been able to focus on reading in two weeks. A recent bout of chronic stress has turned my brain to pink and gray soup. In that soup swim several hyperfixations that are keeping me going. Here are a few of them. Hades Hades is fantastic and everyone in it is hot. I'm not… Continue reading Cataloguing the Thoughts Swimming in My Soup Brain

Life’s a Beach Book Tag

Seattle's in the middle of a heat wave and I'm not happy about it. The weather has been creeping past Pacific Northwest Hot into Actually Hot. At least it feels like summer, so here's a summery book tag from Lefty at The Left-Handed Book Lover. The Sand A book that stuck with you long after… Continue reading Life’s a Beach Book Tag

Dream Daddy Book Tag [ORIGINAL]

Fuck it. Times have been hard. Here's a book tag. Since finishing school, I've been playing a buttload of video games, including queer mainstay Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator. A good alternate title might be Subverting Stereotypes: The Game. I should do a Dad ranking one of these days because two of these daddies… Continue reading Dream Daddy Book Tag [ORIGINAL]

Tolkien Character Book Tag

During quarantine, I resurrected my once-fervent passion for Lord of the Rings. A few months ago, I found this Tolkien-themed tag (created by BookTuber Things Lucy Reads) on Zezee with Books. I was feeling fond and nostalgic (and was procrastinating once again), so I drafted a post. These answers are slightly outdated now but I… Continue reading Tolkien Character Book Tag

Ranking the Stranger Things Teens

I watched three seasons of Stranger Things in a week. Top-tier procrastination method, highly recommend. I then watched season 4 with a friend who has asked to be referred to as "Macavity." I am now DISTRAUGHT. I don't love every decision the creators have made. I still love this show, mainly for its characters. Macavity… Continue reading Ranking the Stranger Things Teens

Mid-Year Freak Out 2022

I made it to June, by golly. I've read 111 books thus far, 55.5% of my 200 book goal. Here are my reading highs and lows from the last six months. Best book read so far I'm on my third reread of Good Omens this year. I find it really touching. I also REALLY love… Continue reading Mid-Year Freak Out 2022

June Wrap-Up: I hate it here

I could start things off on a positive note, I suppose: I finished school. I now have a Certificate in Editing from the University of Washington. After a year and a half of cramming assignments after work, I am finally free. Now for the rest of the month: NOT GREAT. The previous month's news became… Continue reading June Wrap-Up: I hate it here
