On my last post, bookish facts about me, I dropped the news that I'm writing a book. I wanted to dedicate a post just for this news so that I could give you all a little detail about the background of the book and how far along I am with it. The Background: After I … Continue reading I’m Writing a Book!
I've seen a few book bloggers and bookstagrammers do posts listing some bookish facts about themselves. We al have our own quirks as readers, as well as what we like and dislike. I love learning new facts about my fellow book nerds, so I thought it'd be fun to list some bookish facts about myself … Continue reading bookish facts about me
That, my friends, is how long I have off until my third semester of graduate school begins. Earlier today I took my last quiz for my Children's Literature class (before 8am) and instead of wasting the next five hours before work reading or wasting time deciding what to read next, I figured, 'what the heck? … Continue reading Four and a Half Months
Most of us grew up with that one special childhood toy that we kept until adulthood or still have among our possessions. Typically, at least for my age group, we had a special blanket or stuffed animal and we reason that we'll keep them for our future children. Of course, as some of us grow … Continue reading A Piece of My Childhood
Stock photography is a cool thing, especially for bloggers. I will often look to some sites that offer "free-use" photos when I am stuck and do not have an image of my own to use for my posts. There are just some images that I have in mind, but have not been able to execute … Continue reading ShutterStock Portfolio
Hi strangers! It's been a while. I was planning to announce a short hiatus from my blog because I'm just burnt out from everything that's been going on lately, but then I never got around to doing it. So here is just an update on what's been going on in my life these last few … Continue reading Hello. It’s Me.
Well guys and gals, it's finally happening here in CT. I think everyone who has seen the movie Frozen has been waiting for the day when a winter storm that was heading their way is named after the Ice Queen of the movie. Or it might just be me, I can't speak for everyone. When … Continue reading Winter Storm Elsa
The man known as "America's Pastor" passed away today, and I'm pretty upset by the news. My mom had texted me when she found out, and being me, I had to look it up myself. I ended up scrolling through numerous Twitter posts talking greatly about this evangelist that touched many lives. Though he was … Continue reading RIP Billy Graham
First of all, I just want to let everyone know that I am a Buffalo Bills fan and nothing will be changing that any time soon. Though I do have some "secondary" teams that I will always root for, unless they are against the Bills (Giants and Panthers being two of them). So naturally, I … Continue reading Super Bowl Reactions
I recently read an article on Book Riot titled 'Why Book Buying Bans Are a Bad Idea' and though the author made some good points, I have to write a counter-post as to why Book Buying Bans can be a good thing. So, while book buying bans are kind of redundant due to the fact … Continue reading Book Buying Bans Can Be a Good Thing
Hey friends. It's been a while... like three weeks? Yeah, that sounds about right. Apparently, when you're a blogger, you're not "supposed" to point out that you've been absent for a while, but I don't typically follow the "rules of blogging" either. Why? Well, everyone is different and you shouldn't be told how to run … Continue reading It’s been lovely, but I have to scream now
Happy blizzard day guys! Well, for those of us who are impacted by this lovely force of nature. Knowing that there was a snowstorm coming, I planned on knocking out that reorganizing my bookshelves goal off my list, but guess what? I did that yesterday! I ended up with some free time before work and … Continue reading Reorganize Bookshelves: Complete
Somehow my blog has turned me into one of those people that makes yearly goals/resolutions for the new year. I never used to do this, but I saw other bloggers posting their goals (usually with the 101 in 1001 challenge) and thought it was a cool idea to have a public list of goals to … Continue reading My Goals for 2018
