The Weekly Update: 11/6/16

Well crap. I don't have any real life news this week lol. I stayed pretty busy, but not with anything that's worth sharing. I didn't even do anything for Halloween, so it's not like I even have that to talk about. I do, however, have some exciting (well, for me) bookish news, so I'll just skip straight to...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/30/16

So... I've got a few random/awesome/interesting things to share with you all this week! First of all, I don't even understand technology. Remember about a month I told you all that the tap-to-click on my keyboard stopped working? Well... it's working again! Don't ask me how or why because I have no clue. Though I might just turn it off since I got used to clicking without it, and my fingers are...
 

Tag Post: The Halloween Tag

I wanted to do a Halloween-related post every Monday this month, but I decided to go with something not bookish today because I always end up talking about the same books in those types of posts. So this is just about Halloween in general and will maybe give you all a chance to get to know some really random and insignificant things about me since I have included lots of stories from my life...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/23/16

Let's see, what news do I have this week... Well, I voted! (I had a mail-in ballot.) If ever there were an election when every vote counted, I think it'd be this one. If nothing else, my vote will at least cancel out the vote of one person in my family -_- I also made a new cat friend! I don't have my own cats to take cute photos of, but I do have...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/16/16

I did it! I actually did it! I saved my old email from the clutches of complete chaos and utter spamdom! See, I have this other email (not the one I use for blogging) that I used to use for everything. But over the years, it became completely overrun with newsletters and spam. You know how it is, you order something from a website one time, or you input your email for a contest, or you sign up...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/9/16

So I pretty much spent my week preparing for Hurricane Matthew (which thankfully didn't end up hitting us here) and then being exhausted from all the preparation, so I really don't have much to talk about. It's funny though how, as a kid, I never wanted anything serious to happen but always wanted the hurricanes to come close enough that school would be canceled (we don't have snow days here, we...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/2/16

Happy October, everyone! Not that I really have a special affinity for the month, but it seemed a fitting way to start the post. I thought I was finally going to have a rant-free Weekly Update, but alas, it just wasn't meant to be. Something always has to go wrong, Murphy's Law and whatnot. But you know what's great about having a blog and having people who actually read it, other than the...
 

The Weekly Update: 9/25/16

Alright, last week I mentioned cinnamon brooms because, drumroll please... I gots myself a cinnamon broom and I'm all excited about it! I also promised you a story though, so here it is. Cinnamon is probably my favorite scent. I just LOVE it. (I also like to eat it, but that's not the point right now.) So for years growing up I begged my mother every holiday season to buy a cinnamon broom, but...
 

The Weekly Update: 9/18/16

Code red! Code red! People from real life are finding my blog! (If you're one of those people and are reading this right now, hi! Please keep reading before getting offended, I'm going to explain!) Ok, so, two people have recently followed me on Instagram, which links to my blog. And honestly I'm fine with these two particular people seeing/reading my blog (so you're totally welcome to visit and...
 

The Weekly Update: 9/11/16

First of all, if any of you knew/knows anyone who passed or was injured or even survived through 9/11, my thoughts are with you today. And now, because I never know how to segue out of something like that without sounding insensitive but also without dwelling on sadness for too long, I'm just going to go to the next topic which is that it's official: computers hate me. You all know how my...
