The Weekly Update: 2/5/17

Ugh, why has it been so cold?! My tiny little space heater cannot keep up! Also, the only warm shoes I have are boots, and I can't wear those with sweatpants because that looks weird. It's a real problem lol. Anyway, I had some fun and educational dreams last week! It was a nice change from the usual weird ones. In one of them I got to dance! The person I was dancing with in the dream was kind of...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/29/17

There was some crazy weather earlier this week! 26mph winds. Tornado warnings. Freaking tornado warnings. I don't live somewhere that gets tornadoes. As a kid, the idea of tornadoes completely terrified me because I always felt like, what do you even do? Where do you go? You can't prepare for that! But seriously, I'm used to rain, thunderstorms, whatever. But where the hell did all this, just,...
 

Bookish Musings: Why I Love Book Playlists

So, in case you didn't get this from the post title, I love book playlists. You know, playlists of songs that authors or readers create that are either inspired by the book or go with the book. I even make them myself sometimes (though, admittedly, I haven't made any for a while). And because I love them so much (also because I've been listening to one in particular a lot lately), I thought it'd...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/1/17

Happy New Year, everyone! Does anyone else think it's kind of awesome that the first day of the new year falls on a Sunday? I still consider Sundays to be the start of the week (even though it seems that Monday has become the new start of the week for most people for some reason), so I think it's cool. But anyway... I have to admit that my year isn't off to a very good start. I still have tennis...
 

The Weekly Update: 11/27/16

So did everyone have a good Thanksgiving? And did anyone go out on Black Friday? I take that back, if you did you probably won't be able to answer my question since you've probably been trampled and lost some fingers and therefore cannot type (unless you use your nose or elbow, but that's harder than it sounds). I've actually still not been feeling well. I'm just so overexhausted and run down....
 

Book Review: Tone Deaf by Olivia Rivers

Ali, a former child prodigy at piano, has been deaf, using ASL and lip reading to get by, for seven years. But when her best friend drags her to a concert for a band whose music Ali has never even heard, she ends up winning the raffle to go backstage and meet the leader singer, Jace. Their first meeting doesn't go well, but, when he asks her to come back the next day and then notices her bruises,...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/1/16

So I've been really stressed and tired and a little out of it lately, but I actually had a pretty good week both on and off the blog. And the comments I've gotten this week on the discussion post have been off the chain! (I've never used that phrase before, seemed like fun to give it a try. How'd I do?) Seriously though, I love when discussion posts turn into actual discussion. You guys are the...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/24/16

I had a few incidents this week, one with the AC and one with some freaky-ass spider-looking/giant-mosquito-looking bugs, but both were handled without too much trouble. And I even have a bit of good news this week! So I have this *other* laptop that was the first laptop I ever owned and served me well for like six years (ok maybe not *well* for the last couple years, but it worked, at least)...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/17/16

Let's see... no word on the laptop yet (though this one is getting even slower), no crazy dreams, no ridiculous lawn mowing or construction---I don't even know what to talk about this week! But quite frankly I'm not complaining since I'd rather not have computer troubles and loud noises when I'm trying to sleep. I do have lots of bookish things to share though, so I'll just skip right to...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/10/16

So my laptop is being sent BACK to the repair center. Thankfully they're paying shipping this time, but they better not try to charge me now that my warranty has expired because it's not my fault they didn't fix it while it was still covered. Anyway, I have some more weird dream stuff to tell you all about! Except this time it's more of a recurring thing that's been happening rather than a...
