    Random Life: Bookish Chat

    Hi! Welcome. I’m going to be a little random today. ^_^ I’m still working on getting some miscellaneous things organized, but my office is almost done, what I’m calling the art room is almost done, and I have a pile of random stuff in the kitchen and one more picture to hang, that I need a frame for, and then I’ll be done! I cannot wait. I’m used to having clutter on my dining table, so it isn’t really bothering me, but I still want to clear it off. For some reason I really want September to be over. I just feel like it’s lasting forever. Am I the only…

    LibraryOffice Update

    Hello! ^_^ So before I get to the photos, I wanted to talk a little bit about what I ended up doing. Originally, I wanted an entire wall filled with shelves, not quite going up to the ceiling because I’m short, along with a basic desk with a drawer or two to house my ridiculous pen collection. I considered custom shelving, but as my budget for everything changed multiple times over the moving process, I looked into other options while I was making up my mind. So, first, IKEA. I like their Billy shelves, they look good, but I really wanted gray shelves, so it was a compromise from the…

    Finally Finished Some Books

    Hi! (waves) Wow. I haven’t done one of these since March! I read in April and May but I didn’t finish anything. I read in June, and I finished one thing, and finally got some reading mojo back, and somehow, I didn’t fall grossly behind on my reading goal. I mean, I’m behind, but I’m not stressed about it. I was going to give myself a couple of more days to finish something else, but yeah, that’s not happening. Also, I’m taking a blogging break for a week or four. Maybe, probably. I’ll try. I’m as unpacked as I’m going to get without bookshelves, but they should be up by…

    Random Life: Books & Unpacking

    Guys!! There’s going to be a reading update next month! I’m hoping to finish one more book by month’s end. I don’t think that’s going to happen, but I’m excited to be reading with some consistency again. 😀 Especially since I’m not sure I can keep to my book spending goal. Like, I was trying to not buy too much more than 26 books this year, but it’s July, and I’m at 25. Technically, I’m over that, but I’m not counting some of them since I was buying them more for decoration, even though I’m totally planning on reading them as well. Lol! This goal is mostly to help me…
