Random Musings: The Mouse Utopia-Turned-Dystopia that Sounds Like a YA Book & Other Interesting Facts I’ve Learned Lately

If you've visited my blog lately, you probably know I've been having health problems, and because of those problems, I've had to find some new ways to entertain myself all day. One of the things I've found is nonfiction podcasts and YouTube videos with interesting facts about history, science, and all sorts of random things! Some facts have been so interesting that they've stuck out and stayed...
 

Update: Life and Books (Oct 2019)

Still no good news about health stuff. Head problem isn't any better, and the neurologist doesn't have a clue. None of my other problems are any better either, but that's no surprise. And as if I didn't already have enough problems and injuries my body can't heal, I hurt my foot the other day. So what have I been doing to keep myself occupied since I still can't read or really used...
 

Update: Life and Books (Sep 2019)

I'll start this post by getting the bad news out of the way. My face muscle/headache problem is still not better. I'm still waiting for a neurology appointment, but they're probably not going to find anything. So I don't know what's going to happen with my problem, and I don't know what's going to happen with my...
 

Random Musings: My 5 Favorite Disney Movies

Disney movies! There's just something so lovable about them, isn't there? They're not books, which is what I usually talk about here, but they're still stories, so I've decided to make a post talking about my personal favorites :-) Just a warning, there will be unmarked spoilers for some of the movies in this post. I figure that probably won't be much of an issue but wanted to mention it just...
 

Update: Life and Books (July/August 2019)

Technically, I'm not back from my hiatus yet, but, well, I'll explain. I've been having this problem with some of the muscles in my face, kinda like an RSI, but it gets worse and gives me bad headaches whenever I do anything that causes a lot of eye motion or anything that causes the muscles to move. So pretty much everything, but especially reading, using the computer (which includes...
 

Announcement: I’ve Added an Easy Way to Find Diverse Books on My Blog + Some Recs

This is just a quick post to let everyone know I've added a new page to my blog! It's not as detailed or as vast as the books with disability list because it's only books that I've read, but it includes POC, LGBT+, disability (mental and physical), and religion. I've always had these tags and links on my blog, but I figured everyone might not know about them, so I've just compiled all the links...
 

Update: Life and Books (June 2019)

June is over! (Well, I just realized this is posting on the 30th, but close enough.) I don't know why I said that so excitedly. I don't have anything against June or any special affinity for July. But anyway, I did more art! I was unexpectedly inspired by the #Junicorn tag on Twitter and ended up drawing two half-unicorns. I think my dancing half-unicorn (with Vitiligo, in case anyone doesn't...
 

Update: Life and Books (May 2019) + All My #Mermay Art!

So BEA just passed (or maybe is still happening?) and every other blogger will probably be sharing massive book hauls today. Not me. Instead, I just have LOTS OF MERFOLK! (This is going to be a very image-filled post 😬) #Mermay has ended, but I ended up doing six pieces, which is five more than I thought I'd do, and also the most art I've done in a month probably ever. Last month I shared...
 

Update: Life and Books (Apr 2019)

Another month has gone by, and I don't want to talk about "real life" at the moment because it's not going great, so we'll just stick to positives in this update! I do have a favor to ask though. If you ever shop Amazon US, I would appreciate it so much if you could use my affiliate links! They're all over my blog, including this post (the book covers). It doesn't cost you anything extra, but...
 

Update: Life and Books (Mar 2019)

Hello again, my fellow book loving peeps. I gotta be honest, I am still struggling a lot. Both physically and mentally, for numerous reasons that I don't feel like getting into (if you've been reading my updates, you know some of them). I just feel so drained at this point. So blogging has been a bit of a struggle too. I just haven't had the energy to go through literally hundreds of posts on...
