A Guest Review: Spirited Away

Spirited Away is one of my favorite movies, and it is a much loved Studio Ghibli movie.

A New Posting Schedule and Some Summer Goals

I am back from summer camp! I'll be writing all about it later, but today there were a few things I wanted to talk about. You may have noticed the amount of posts over the last month were higher than well, pretty much ever, and were more or less consistent.

I got two copies of Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.   Now, here me out before you judge me. I originally pre-ordered the book from Barnes and… Continue reading I Got Lady Midnight! (2 of them…)

I’VE READ SO MUCH THIS WEEK!!!

After three months of not finishing a book, (*grasp* the horror, I know, I've been in a reading slump), I have finally started reading again. And I don't mean I started reading a book. No I mean reading.  Now I read quite quickly when I want to/ have the energy to do so (roughly 100 pages… Continue reading I’VE READ SO MUCH THIS WEEK!!!

10 Songs To Motivate You When Writing

I am a big fan of making playlists. I make playlists for everything: parties, friends coming over, studying, doing homework (yes these are different things), and most importantly I think: everything I write for more than an hour ends up with its own writing playlist. Now, I'm the queen of procrastinating (which tends to mean… Continue reading 10 Songs To Motivate You When Writing

AP Crunch Time Is Going To Kill Me

I have 54 blog posts in my drafts. Let that sink in, 54. That is nearly the same amount of my published posts (60-something in the year and a half or so since I've made this blog, even if I only started using it actively a few months ago). This is a problem, not a… Continue reading AP Crunch Time Is Going To Kill Me
