    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…

    I Has A Library Card!

    For a long time, I had a library card. When I was a kid, this was amazing. I lived in the library. You think I’m joking. I am not. I would be at the library for so long that my mother would call and make sure I was still there. I have taken naps in the library. I would check out an armful of books every week. As many as they would lend me. These were glorious times that I think back on with much fondness. And when I first graduated from college, I would go to the library fairly regularly. Then I didn’t go so much, which I’ll get…

    March 2020 Updates

    Hi! ^_^ This was a graphic novel heavy month, as I found myself kind of exhausted after finally finishing The Fireman, and while I really liked that book, it was long and exhausting, just like the last Joe Hill book I read, but I’m caught up on his novels now, graphic novels and anthologies aside. I tried to read a YA sci-fi that I picked up from the library. There wasn’t anything wrong with it, but I didn’t finish it because I didn’t care. The main character was smart, sure, but she was boring, and I’m 100% sure I had the entire plot figured out two pages into chapter three. Smart…
