When your cat is more photogenic than you

Life

Ever experienced envy at the fact that no matter how you photograph your pet, no matter what absolutely ridiculous pose they are in, they still manage to look cuter than you? If so, I feel you. I delete basically every selfie, and then turn around and take 100+ photos of my flawless feline child. I can put on makeup, find perfect lighting, try and fix my hair, and take a…

WW#7

Life

Whew, it's been ages since I posted about the wedding at all. Although a BUNCH of things have been done since my last post, which was probably about either A) The wedding convention I attended with my mum or B) The issues with wedding dress shopping. Now, months and months later, and now it is actually the same year as the wedding, I've buckled down and started to get more…

Bookworm Origin Story

Blogging, Life

What makes someone a bookworm? Can you quantify it? Is there a bookworm checklist? I couldn't tell you the exact moment where I realized I was a bookworm, but it probably came from someone using that word to describe me. I don't know how many books I needed to read before the adjective stuck, or how much time I needed to spend on reading before everyone around me started to…

New Year, New Bookworm

Blogging, Life

I fell off the map towards the end of 2016. I had post drafts all scheduled, but just never got around to fully photographing/editing/writing them up to post them. With November and December being full of family visits, traveling, holidays, and the like, I just couldn't find time to manage a blog on top of everything else! (I feel like that may sound a bit of a cop-out, but I'm…

Prepping for NaNoWriMo

Life

I've been doing NaNoWriMo for quite a while now. I started when I was back in college as a sophomore and that first year was the only year I actually completed the challenge. A bunch of unfinished novels later, here I am, prepping for another year of literary struggle! I was debating between re-working/finishing an older NaNoWriMo novel that I recently fell back in love with, or writing something new…

Problems with Wedding Dress Expectations (WW#5)

Life

Since the going is still slow on the wedding front (Although I did put down a deposit on a wedding photographer and signed the contract with them! YAY! ONE BIG THING DONE!!!) I figured that I'd push this back to being a once a month update, because I'm bad at talking about weddings and I'm not an expert in any sense of the word. As the day creeps ever closer,…

“Currently” Me

Life

Since I did the currently reading list, I thought I'd do a "currently" about me, and what I've been up to. A lot has changed in my life (in all ways) since I started this blog way back when. I mean, this was the first picture of myself I posted on the blog: HA OH MAN I'M GETTING EMBARRASSED. Obviously a lot has changed. l started this blog when I…

That One Time I Wasn’t Allowed in the Science Fair

Life

I know I have some pictures from the whole project somewhere at my parents house, and the see through projector slides that I had specially made for the presentation, although...I don't have the petri dishes anymore....well. Let's tell the story of the time I wasn't allowed in the high school science fair. It was Sophomore year in high school, biology class. Part of our requirement was to make a project…

A Potatoes Birthday! + Wedding Wednesday

Life

Today is my darling Potato's birthday! You may remember Alex from his music posts on the blog a ways back, or his science posts, or perhaps his gaming posts. If not, you've probably seen his face around since I love it so much that I'm constantly taking candid photos of him everywhere we go. Anyways, like I said, today is his birthday! Since it's happening in the middle of a…

Ring in the New Year!

Blogging, Life

Happy New Year! I know the past few months have been rather full of silence on my part, which is why I'll start this post with an announcement! I'm actually going to be taking the month of January off to do some hard core blog planning (probably with Meagan from Fiction Incarnate) so that I'll be able to come back better than ever! Sort of like a month to do…
