Summer Break

I can’t believe the summer is almost over here in the northern hemisphere. I’m actually a bit giddy with excitement over it. I very much do not like summer, and I’m so ready for autumn to arrive. Plus, the cooler weather means it’s getting closer to when I’m traveling out to California to meet one…

Tag: 10 Year Challenge

Much like last week, I’m feeling some kind of way lately, which is going to resolve itself next week in a summer break, but, until then, we’re doing another tag! Once again, thank you to Zezee with Books for their amazing collection of book tags, which has kept me afloat these past couple of weeks.…

My Yoga Journey

This is going to be very long, so I’m going to dive right in from the beginning. 2011 was a rough year. I went away to college in 2010, and it was my first time away from home without my parents along for the ride. When my mom hugged me goodbye, she asked me if…

TTT: Why I Love Reading

This is somehow going to be the hardest That Artsy Reader Girl topic ever. It shouldn’t be because there are so many reasons why I love reading, but that’s it right there, that’s why it’s the hardest. How do you narrow down something so monumental into ten reasons? And they’re definitely not going to be…
