If you had approached me even one year ago and told me that I would go vegan, I would never have believed you.
I finally took the plunge and deleted my Instagram account about a week ago. And now that I don’t have it anymore, I’ve started to become more and more nauseated by the culture surrounding Instagram, especially among Gen Z.
Hello everyone! Since it’s almost the end of the year, I’m looking to get some feedback on Frappes & Fiction.
This is my latest wrap-up post in the history of this blog and for that I sincerely apologize….
My senior year of high school starts in less than a month, which is equal parts disturbing and exciting.
Well, it’s been almost a year since I posted my first travel bucket list. I still haven’t ever left America, it is all very boring and sad and I’ll probably never end up getting to go to most of these places, but a girl can dream, right?
last day of June! Summer is passing way too quickly, and I can’t decide whether I’m excited for school to start again or if I’d rather have summer last forever.
How do you keep track of your reading progress?
I’ve always used Goodreads, but this year I also decided to track my reading via a spreadsheet, like the nerd that I am. I tracked four different metrics: book genre, book “age group”, and format I read it in.
Today I’m finally starting to go through my list of award posts! Thank you to Lilly’s Little Library for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award!
Last December, I felt completely alone. In the U.S., cases were skyrocketing and I hadn’t left my house for weeks, even to go outside. I’d stopped going to my extracurriculars a while ago as the pandemic ramped up, and school was still online. Though it was my favorite month of the year, even Christmas music couldn’t cheer me up.
May. Where do I even start?
It was the best of reading months, it was the worst of reading months, it was the month of 5-star reads, it was the month of my worst slump yet, it was the beginning of spring, it was the intensity of school stress, it was sunny days, it was calculus practice tests.
Do you ever get that feeling where you feel like the beginning of the month was just yesterday, but it simultaneously feels like it was a long time ago, and you’re confusing yourself by forgetting how time works and when you did what and how long a month is supposed to be? Me too.
I’ve noticed a weird effect of quarantine: time seems to pass a lot more quickly when you’re home all day. I don’t know how I feel about that, but at least the most depressing month of the year is over, and I can quite literally feel spring in the air.
If you told me this time last year that ebooks would soon comprise 90% of my reading, I probably would have grabbed the nearest paperback, hugged it protectively, and told you you were gravely mistaken
How could I let this happen? It’s twenty minutes before the time my weekly blog post is supposed to go up, and I’m sitting on the couch, staring at the devastatingly empty draft post on my laptop screen. My cursor blinks pitifully against the unforgiving expanse of blank space, until I close out of the tab with a plaintive sigh.
Today, I was startled by the realization that I haven’t done a proper wrap-up post since October, despite the fact that the entire point of this blog is to talk about the books I read. (Whoops) So, here is my January wrap-up, featuring everything I read and posted this month!
I find it funny that something I started purely on a whim ended up becoming one of the most important hobbies I’ve ever had.
The paradox of 2020 is that although my life changed irreversibly, I feel almost as if nothing has changed at all.
