In less than two days I am making a dream come true and yet my anxiety has overtaken me. I know that once I arrive at our destination I'll be fine and it'll be great, but right now anxiety has taken excitements place. I booked this vacation back in February and was ecstatic about it. … Continue reading Pre-Trip Anxiety
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that." If there ever was a more defining book in regards to my love for reading, it's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I was a reader long before I found my way to Harry, but this book is the one that really … Continue reading Book Discussion: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
On last weeks update, there was hardly an update. I was going to say something much more poignant than that, but that's really just the simplest way to say it. I didn't even want to post anything, but I forced myself to write that really short post. A post where at the time I felt … Continue reading Mental Health Thursday! (Week 3)
This week has been a pain in the ass. I don't even have much of an update if I'm being honest because there really isn't much to say.

I have a problem. A really big problem. I have this tendency to come up with projects that I want to do, goals I want to achieve, or just fun things I'd like to try and then when the time comes to finally DO the thing, I crash. I go through this period of time … Continue reading Me, a trainwreck.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I actually ended up reading this month because I didn't pick up a book until May 16th and quite frankly I was rather scared that I was about to begin a reading slump! But I managed to go ahead and make it through 5 books this month! My … Continue reading May Wrap UP
A few weeks ago I came across a trailer for this movie and upon finding out it was a book I immediately went out to purchase it because I thought to myself, "that looks like a good movie. I'll read the book first!" Honestly, I wish I hadn't because dear God was this a mess. … Continue reading Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan Spoiler Free Review
"Full points for vagueness, girl, but I wanted the dirt." Back in February I finally read The Dark Prophecy and was completely underwhelmed. I remember reading the first installment to this new series with excitement and loving it and looking forward to where the story would take Apollo. When I came around to the second book, very … Continue reading The Trials of Apollo: The Burning Maze Review!
