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

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

7 Quick Takes: Of Work and Play

It's Friday, which means it's that time again for 7 Quick Takes, hosted over at This Ain't the Lyceum. ~1~ This week has been a hectic one. I suppose it started as it meant to go on.

Nevertheless, it is fascinating for me to see the differences and similarities between me then and … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Past

Currently, on a Wednesday

It’s a Month Until I Finish my BA

Actually, that title is a lie. I didn’t have time to write this last week and then I forgot about it. But, yes, after three years, I am on the last legs of my degree. It’s bizarre! A weird feeling to think that in less than a month (it’s under three weeks now), I will … Continue reading It’s a Month Until I Finish my BA

Why a Writing Hiatus Is So Painful

I'm taking a writing hiatus. This would be due to the importance of my studies for my final year of my undergraduate anyway – but it's also due to another reason. I've hit a massive writing slump. I should have expected it, what with my dissertation taking up most of my non-contact time; but where … Continue reading Why a Writing Hiatus Is So Painful
