★ Top Books of 2021 ★

Hey, internet land! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted anything here, but I thought I’d come back from my hiatus for a second to talk about the books I read this year. I didn’t get much reading done ever since I took a break from blogging, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t come across some fantastic books and graphic novels!

In no particular order, here are my top 10 books that I read in 2021!

My Favorite Artist Small Businesses!

Favorite Small Art Businesses!

Okay, hear me out. I know that Thanksgiving hasn’t even passed, but with what’s been going on in the world, you might have noticed that shipping is much slower than it used to be. More people are ordering online, and the USPS is struggling to keep up with the demand alongside budget cuts and other things. On top of that, some borders are closed to receiving mail from certain countries, etc. etc. etc. Basically, it’s kind of all over the place.

I know it’s a lot to ask someone financially to support small businesses, especially right now, BUT if you are in a position to buy gifts from small businesses this holiday season, I ask that you do. Big companies will be making a TON of money during the holidays and Black Friday, especially now that people are more afraid to shop in-stores. Ordering from small businesses could be the only thing that’s keeping their businesses afloat.

So… yeah. I just wanted to share some of my favorite small art businesses that I’m obsessed with!

Let’s Talk: Rejection

I’m going to be super honest with you guys: I suck at accepting rejections. Most people know me as someone who doesn’t get phased very often. My natural state of emotion is indifference. You’d think that I would be good at taking rejection, but personally speaking, I definitely am not. I might have the outward appearance of aloofness, but I tend to take things pretty personally… even if there’s nothing personal about the rejection.

With staying indoors more often, I have become very introspective, and I thought I’d talk about my take on rejection in a bookish context.

What I’ve Been Doing During Quarantine

brown wooden frame with quote

I thought I’d make this post to give people who are struggling to fill their time during this quarantine period some ideas. I’d like to preface this post by saying that I am a college student on summer vacation, meaning that I have a lot of time on my hands. I am not an essential worker, so I’m doing my part by staying inside and social distancing as much as possible. I know that there are people who have jobs, and don’t have the free time that I do. But if you do find yourself with some time on your hands and having no idea what to do with it, maybe some of these things will inspire you.

First Impressions: Kindle Paperwhite

About a month ago, I asked the internet about their opinion on Kindles (because I was thinking about getting one), and the general consensus was that they provide an amazing reading experience without the hassle of a physical book. When I asked if I should get one, the answer was a resounding YES.

So… I got one.
