I’m still feeling a bit under the weather but I’m getting better every day. Thank you, everyone, for all the warm wishes! ❤
Since my brain is a bit fuzzy, I decided to go easy on myself this week with posting and just do something simple.
I was nominated by the lovely Marta @ The Book Mermaid. She reviews both books and movies, and her posts always make me smile. Don’t forget to check out her blog and sorry I didn’t get to this sooner!
Before we start, here are the rules:
- Thank the person(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or on your blog.
I’ve got to get back to work so this is going to be pretty quick.
This school year has so far been a rough one. From what everyone has told me, this is going to be the toughest year for me, and I see why they said that. My workload has doubled since last year and the classes were much harder than I anticipated. I have many tests to study for this weekend and was already assigned a year-long project.
Because of the overload of homework I receive on a daily basis, my stress levels have been rising as my free time slowly diminished. On top of that, I got sick today. Flu season is running through my school and sadly I was not spared. Let’s just hope I get out of this mess alive and get my life together.
That being said, I may or may not be posting next week. If my schedule is overwhelmed, then I probably won’t be posting next week. If I can manage to find some leeway, then I’ll try and at least write one post. Since school started, I haven’t even been able to touch a book that isn’t a textbook, so we’ll see how likely it is for me to have time to write.
Anyway, I hope you are having a lovely, stress-less week! Treat yourself to some rest because it’s Friday! Or some Disney music… you can never go wrong with Disney music.
Until next time….

The month of August went by way to quickly. I feel like summer just started yesterday and now I’m going back to school.
I’m a little bit overwhelmed with the workload (as I have never taken this many advanced classes at once), but I feel like after a couple weeks or so I’ll find a good routine.
For now, I’m going to take Lilly Singh’s advice and just HUSTLE!
School is around the corner, and that means new classes and new people to meet. Comparing my schedule with all my friends, it turns out that I don’t have any classes with them. That means I’ll be needing to make some new friends to get through this school year. As an introvert, at the beginning of the school year, I have some people that I have a friend crush on. Then that got me thinking what it would be like if I were friends with fictional characters.
This list does not limit itself to just book characters. It also includes TV show and movie characters.
Do you ever have those instances where you’re reading a book and a character is really enjoying some food and you feel kind of jealous? And then while you’re reading about food, you get hungry but all you want is that food that the character is eating? Yeah, it happens to me all the time.
Also, I just really love food. I mean, who doesn’t? Especially bread. I know it’s super bad for you if you eat too much of it but I love the fluffiness and smell and-
Okay I’ll stop. I’m getting hungry.
Heroes are usually celebrated by everyone for their heroism (obviously) and overall awesomeness, but where’s the love for the villains? Although they are bad beings, I can’t help but love them. Unless you’re Professor Umbridge. Then you can burn for all I care. I’m also not a big fan of Voldemort, mainly because he (in my opinion) was pretty bland compared to the rest of the characters.
Sometimes I am more interested in the villain than the protagonist in the story. Take, for example, the trickster god Loki (who is on this list). Between Thor and Loki, I’d rather learn more about the “villain”. He just seems much more interesting than Thor (sorry, dude. You’re still really cool). There’s something about a person who doesn’t have many morals that makes them rather intriguing. I’m not saying that they’re good people, but they are interesting to watch/read about.
Today, August 16th, 2017, marks the second anniversary of this blog! I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for two whole years.
It’s kind of crazy that this all started because I was bored one day. Seriously. That’s why I made this blog. Because I was bored. Great story, isn’t it?
I know this is going to sound cheesy, but I’m so very thankful for all the people I’ve met over the book blogging community. It’s nice to be able to share my passions with others who get me. I’ve made some friends over these two years and hope to make many, many more!
Not only did I grow as a book lover because of the community, I grew as a person (I’m still cringing a little bit with all the cheese I’m pouring into this). I’ve learned to break out of my shell and speak up more in conversations. This community has inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. And for this, I say thank you!
Thank you all for a great blogging year and I hope to continue to make posts for many more!
Until next time….
I’ve been doing some brainstorming for some blog post ideas when I started thinking about what it would be like if fictional characters lived in the real world. Then I thought about my fangirling tendencies of shipping characters together.
I love shipping my OTPs and in real life that would mean dating. What better way to do that than online? I’ve never done online dating, but I can get a good idea of what people’s profiles look like. I just took the basic idea and put together a profile for each member of the Dregs in the Six of Crows series. I know that most of these characters already have a romantic partner, but I’d like to think they’d meet online if they were real.
(Notice: I know most of these characters are just teens, so think of these profiles as a part of a website meant for teenagers rather than adults.)
(Another notice: The artwork I used in this post aren’t mine. I made sure to link the artists’ websites to the picture as well as link it towards the bottom of this post.)
