• Mid-Year Check In + Tour de France

    Hello! Somehow, half the year has already passed, so I figured I would give a bit of an update and then do my own take on the Mid-Year Book Tag, by theming it around the Tour de France! Two weeks ago, I graduated from high school, and this autumn I will be going off to college! I honestly cannot believe how fast time has gone by. I think later this summer, I will do a more detailed post about going off to college and about the end of high school. So this is just a small update for now.

There seemed to be a lack of flow in many of them, and the style of some (specifically the ones with colons separating every few words) didn’t work with their story. Every so often, the poems seem to fit…

  • February Wrap Up

    Happy March! While in some instances, February flew by, it also feels like it’s been February forever, so I’m excited for the new month! I didn’t read too much this month, but I got out of my reading slump, so I’m happy! Anyway, let’s just jump into my wrap-up! Reading Stats Books Read: Four Pages Read: 1,038 Longest Book: Jane Eyre (620 pages) Shortest Book: The Last Unkillable Thing (100 pages ish) Required Reading: Nothing On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong Contemporary I read and loved Vuong’s other work, Night Sky With Exit Wounds, and so I think I overhyped how much I would like this one, which…
