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

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

Top Ten DNFs of 2020

Another band wagon for me! I DNFed a fair number of books this year. These are the ones I remember best. Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente I thought this book was trying too hard to be The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It also made way more gender jokes than I felt comfortable with.… Continue reading Top Ten DNFs of 2020
