June 2017 Wrap Up

Like, did I actually a) blog and b) do a wrap up post?? Blame Cait @ PaperFury for inspiring me. (Photo by Katherine Hinzman) Reading I finished ADAMANT by Emma L Adams. Thoughts/Mini Review? 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I liked it, and the characters were quirky, but it was a pretty chunky read, … Continue reading June 2017 Wrap Up

8 Things I’ll Miss About Reading Town

Now that I’ve started winding down from university, and namely living around universities, I’ve been thinking about what I’ll most miss about that atmosphere. Potentially the first in a series. A photo from the main Wantage building across the second quad to the second set of room where we stayed as first years. Walking to … Continue reading 8 Things I’ll Miss About Reading Town

Current State of Work

AN OPERATIC DIVERSION

I love keeping busy, and it's something I'm good at. I have a mind that doesn't turn off often (and when it does, it takes a while to 'boot up' again), and I get restless/bored easily if an event doesn't stimulate my mental capacities. To that end, amongst all the other things I've been doing, … Continue reading AN OPERATIC DIVERSION

Spoons, Priorities, and Blogging

When I did my undergraduate degree at Reading, I specifically picked accommodation that was not on campus, but not too far from it either. I couldn't face being enclosed in a campus, and it had been my initial wish to join a city university (instead of trying to convince us that you pick the wedding … Continue reading Spoons, Priorities, and Blogging
