November Wrap-up: Turning the corner

Happy December! As always, I'm not quite sure how we got here! Last month was jam-packed with write-ins, family dinners, and karaoke. It was so packed I'm going to start with some life updates.

August Wrap-Up: Cooler weather at last!

Dare I say I had a good August? It started raining toward the end of the month. I'm wearing sweats and long sleeves again. I might even break out the beanies.

Revisiting the Night Circus

(Spoilers ahead for The Night Circus) (CW: depression, anxiety, alcohol, suicide) I expected to hate The Starless Sea.
