Dark Academia Reads for Fall

Dark academia was allegedly a big trend on Tumblr during the 2010s. I was too busy having an IRL breakdown to participate, so I'm DOING IT NOW. My general impression of dark academia is "collegiate spaces but make them creepy and possibly full of evil magic." Also, there's dark wood paneling and everyone wears a… Continue reading Dark Academia Reads for Fall

The Crying Book Tag (ORIGINAL)

You might not know this about me, but I cry a lot. I learned in a college class (Psychology 101, perhaps?) that a good cry cleanses your body of toxins. Crying, it turns out, is good for you. A lot of books have made me cry lately. I wanted to honor them in a tongue-in-cheek… Continue reading The Crying Book Tag (ORIGINAL)

May Wrap-Up

I JUST FINISHED THE FIRST CLASS IN MY EDITING COURSE. ONE DOWN, TWO TO GO. Once again, I don't really remember the month gone by. I experienced things but I DID NOT REMEMBER THEM. I did get my second vaccine and am now fully inoculated, so there's that. Oh, I also started a new Stardew… Continue reading May Wrap-Up

March Wrap-Up: A Tiny Energy Boost

Another big energy drop this month! I started feeling really down around Daylight Savings Time. Talking to friends and family helped and I was able to finish a decent number of books. I also went TikTok viral accidentally, so uh...that happened. School is going well. Not too many updates aside from that. Let's do some… Continue reading March Wrap-Up: A Tiny Energy Boost

The Spring Cleaning Book Tag: Quarantine Edition

I really should clean my apartment. I have been doing some sorting off and on. I cleaned out my closet (could go for a round two) and unhauled quite a few books. Surely there's more to be done. I could probably...I don't know, clean my bathroom or something. Anyway, 'tis the season to redo the… Continue reading The Spring Cleaning Book Tag: Quarantine Edition

February Wrap-Up: Reading is Difficult, Friends

No one stormed the U.S. Capitol last month. Things are looking up! I had a GIANT energy drop during the last two weeks of February and didn't get much done. Then again, I am not defined by my productivity. I don't know. It's been a weird time. February Life Updates I started the editing certification… Continue reading February Wrap-Up: Reading is Difficult, Friends

Books as First Dates Book Tag

Valentine's Day was two days ago and I almost missed it. I remember chocolate and some cutesy posts on Twitter. Otherwise it was a nonevent. Elli @ Ace Reader posted this tag for Valentine's Day and I thought it was perfect. This tag was created by Alice @ Love for Words, a gorgeous blog with… Continue reading Books as First Dates Book Tag

January Wrap-Up: WHO EVEN CARES

WOW, I THOUGHT DECEMBER WAS BAD. PRESIDENT-SANCTIONED INSURRECTION? MUTATED STRAINS OF COVID-19? A SECOND IMPEACHMENT? CAN WE PLEASE CATCH A BREAK? PLEASE? Last month, I worked even more mandatory overtime. Oh, and I turned 28 during quarantine. This is not exactly the fresh start I'd hoped for. I'm trying to stay optimistic. "Trying," of course,… Continue reading January Wrap-Up: WHO EVEN CARES
