Day 615 – Fighting Social Anxiety

I don’t like to eat in the lunch room during school hours because of the sheer amount of people there. I can’t really enjoy my lunch if there’s too many people around me. I guess that’s why I don’t really like crowded restaurants either. Anyway, I like to eat in this one teacher’s classroom (don’t worry, she’s totally fine with me eating there) because there’s fewer people there.

One time, my teacher sat down with me and the other kids who ate in her room to talk to us about being happier students, therefore happier people. It’s her goal this year to teach us ways to be happier persons because of some certain dark events that had happened this school year. She had several units, and this month’s unit was realizing our biggest weakness and working on improving it.

Throne of Glass #6 Title Reveal!

I was in the class yesterday when my friend and fellow Sarah J. Maas fan squealed and shoved her phone in front of my face. On her phone was this:

It’s the title to the sixth book of the Throne of Glass series! Tower of Dawn! It sounds majestic. I’m expecting a lot of adventure and thrill. Although I want Aelin and the rest of her crew to be part of this story, I’m assuming they’re not going to be. I think it will be kind of like the fifth book. Chaol was briefly mentioned for a grand total of two times in 700 pages. This time, Aelin and the crew will probably be in the background of the story.

The Chaol novel was originally going to be a novella, but Sarah J. Maas wrote so much to the point they’re turning into a book. That means that there’s going to be seven full books in the series, not just six!

I’m a little scared to see what the cover is going to look like. I just hope that it’ll match the rest of the series. I’ve been collecting the hardcovers because they’re gorgeous and matching. I hope this book doesn’t screw that up.

I’ve also heard that there’s going to be some kind of Throne of Glass world guide, which will be interesting! I’m not ready for this series to end so soon. There’s only going to be one more book after this one! I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to say goodbye to the world and characters that I’m now very invested in.

Thank goodness there’s still the A Court of Thorns and Roses series to look forward to these upcoming years.

Nine Things I do to Alleviate Stress

Hello! I’ve been super stressed lately, and if you’re still in school, I’m sure this time of year is pretty awful for you too. If you’re in high school, AP testing season and finals are approaching and teachers decide that this is a great time to give all the projects. If you’re in college, the work load sucks in general.

A couple weeks ago I broke down and went haywire. I didn’t know why. I just couldn’t focus because my emotions were out of control. I stopped and thought of what could’ve cause this. My conclusion was stress.

That got me thinking. I have a couple ways I deal with my stress and wanted to share it with the world to hopefully help someone in need.

I started a web-comic!?!

I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I finally started a web comic!

I’ve always had a passion for art and love for drawing, especially cartoons. With a little bit of encouragement from my friends, I created a web comic.

It’s nothing big right now, and definitely nothing great. I’m still trying to figure out how I want to draw my comics, so you’re going to see some inconsistencies with my drawing style.

Basically, I draw my thoughts and conversations that I’ve had/heard. It’s not one of those comic/story things.

I’m posting on Tapastic as well as Instagram. I’d highly appreciate if you check it out!

Tapastic also has a mobile app, which is super easy to use and free. If you sign up, you can use the code JESS461U to get 200 coins! You can use coins to buy keys to unlock episodes of certain stories and comics, or you can use them to tip your favorite author/artist. The choice is really up to you. You don’t even need to pay to earn coins if you don’t want to. You can just watch an ad to get some coins.

Here’s one of my favorite comics I’ve created so far:

I try to post weekly but recently I’ve been struggling. I don’t have a posting schedule yet but hope to soon.

Thanks for everyone’s support!

Dream Team Army

I’ve been thinking recently about what I wanted to write and I remembered this assignment I did in one of my classes. We had to choose an occupation and build a dream team for that job. For example, if I chose the occupation as a surgeon, I would have to build a team of a surgeon, surgeon assistant, nurses, etc.

Taking that idea, I wanted to build my dream team army with book characters if I ever happened to be in a zombie apocalypse. I not only have to consider everyone’s strengths and weaknesses, but also their ability to get along with each other. I was about to put Kaz and Rhysand together but… yeah that wouldn’t end well.

March 2017 Wrap-Up

March was a rough month school-wise, but I finally started reading at the normal pace I’m used to (a.k.a. reading 4+ books at the same time).

Classes are getting tougher thanks to upcoming AP tests. I don’t think I’ll be able to dedicate the amount of time I want to to this blog for the next month or so, but after the tests are over, I’ll basically be free. Until finals, that is….
