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 These answers are slightly outdated now but I… Continue reading Tolkien Character Book Tag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

Dessertathon: The Results

Remember that dessert-themed readathon I joined at the last minute? I joined the Cozy Cookies team and it was a whole thing? Well. I finished exactly one of the books on my Dessertathon TBR. June was a rough month politically and emotionally. I did pick up more than one of the books on my list.… Continue reading Dessertathon: The Results

On Peace and Love

This morning, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. In his response, President Biden urged citizens to "keep all protests peaceful." He emphasized, "Peaceful, peaceful, peaceful--no intimidation. Violence is never acceptable. Threats and intimidation are not speech. We must stand against violence in any form regardless of your rationale.” I've long grown tired of the… Continue reading On Peace and Love

Dessertathon: Sugar acquired

After a busy couple of weeks, I finished one of the books on my Dessertathon TBR! One down, six to go! For the Sugar prompt (feel-good book), I reread Casey McQuiston's One Last Stop for the umpteenth time. I love this book so much. Casey McQuiston's prose always gets me. I love the historical tidbits… Continue reading Dessertathon: Sugar acquired

May Wrap-Up: Goodbye and Good Riddance

So May sucked. The Supreme Court wants to overturn Roe v. Wade. Obergefell v. Hodges and Loving v. Virginia might be next. The Buffalo and Uvalde shootings were similarly devastating. Everyone I know is sad, mad, and scared. I feel angry and helpless most of the time. (I got a tattoo about it. It helped… Continue reading May Wrap-Up: Goodbye and Good Riddance
