I’M BACK!!! // life updates + plans for this blog

Hello, people of the internet!

I MISSED ALL OF YOU SO MUCH. I’m finally back after a pretty long hiatus, and BOY DO I FEEL AMAZING. My exams went great, my stress level reduced, my skin is clear, and my crops are flourishing. What more could I ask for?

This is going to be a fairly short post, basically some life updates (if you’re interested?) and what I want to do with this blog! I had some time to think about where I want it go, and while I won’t be making many major changes (I think they aren’t that major, at least), I’ll be shaking things up!

aLSO HAPPY LOVE, SIMON DAY. It still hasn’t released for me but oh, well. I’ll stick to playing the soundtrack on repeat until 23rd March. And re-reading the book. And crying. And munching Oreos to make myself feel better.

The Rising Author Tag! // ft. embarrassing stories from my past + strange writing habits

Hello, fellow writers of the internet!

To be honest, I don’t think I’m a rising author. (I don’t think I’m a rising anything.) But by some strange twist of fate, I have been nominated for this amazing tag?? By TWO fabulous people, no less. I feel so,, blessed :’)) A GIGANTIC THANK YOU TO BOTH THE STORY SPONGE AND KATIE!!! go follow them pls they’re both great humans.

A word of caution: extreme levels of cringe up ahead. Do not proceed if you cannot handle the terrible writings of six-year-old Aris. You have been warned.

Monthly Recap: January! // aka the longest month ever + the start of 2018

Hello, people of the internet!

The first month of 2018. It was nice!!! I read a bunch, and wrote a little but it’s ok because I had fun. Honestly though January was so slow??? (I still feel like it’s January 74th or something smh.)

Also I completed most of my goals!! Something I’m hella hyped about because I thought for sure it’d be a huge failure.

The Ultimate Book Tag // my first collab (!!)

Hello, people of the internet!

Ah, books. I love them. So does the obsessed girl! And we’ve decided to team up for a collab – which will be my first ever!! I’m super excited for this, collabs are the best part of blogging tbh. She did the 20 Songs Tag over on her blog, it’s pretty funny :))

I’ll be doing the Ultimate Book Tag – it sounds pretty interesting and has to do with books so ?? it’s kind of a no-brainer.

(please let’s start this post already, the awkward intro is killing me)

Monthly Recap: December // IT’S 2018 ALREADY?? + Goals I Will Probably Never Complete

Hello, people of the internet!

IT IS 2018. Can you believe it? Feels like only last week it was 2015. (I miss that year ;-; it was so nice and nothing bad happened cOME BACK 2015) But I did a lot of stuff in December?? Well, not that much, but yeah it was fun.

And while we’re recapping last month, I finally decided to set goals for myself! Usually I find them too constraining but they can kind of be helpful?? So I have some goals for January lined up, too.

A Bookish Wrap-Up for 2017 // end of year book survey!

Hello, fellow bookworms of the internet!

I CANNOT PICK A FAVOURITE BOOK. (I mean I probably can if I think about it long enough but agh just roll with it.) The reason why it’s so hard for me to pick one single book is because 2017 was such a good reading year for me?? I read the most wonderful books of ever and was introduced to contemporary!! A genre I had no interest in before blogging!! But which I now love!!!

Anyway I saw Ilsa do a bookish round up tag thing and decided to do it too!! (Originality.) So I’ll be linking up with Perpetual Page Turner’s 2017 End of Year Book Survey and I’m so so excited to do it!

Monthly Wrap-up for September!

Hello, people of the internet!

September was a busy month. I had my midterms, I had a couple parties to attend, I made new online friends (and apparently I live in the same city as some of them!), I got like three more plot bunnies, and I wrote a lot.

It was fun! And because I did so much interesting stuff, I’m going to put it all together in a blog post. 😀

Hello, people of the internet!

Oh my god my first wrap-up post I am so excited let’s do this.
