    Getting My TBR Under Control

    The Goodreads TBR is not a reflection of all the books on my TBR. It’s only a reflection of books on my TBR that I don’t own. I figured, if I own the book, I should remember to read it. That helped with a fraction of the list. As of writing this, my Goodreads TBR is 174, down from 479. Like, can a girl get a high five or something?! 😀 After deleting all the books I own on a physical or digital shelf, except one, for nonsense reasons, I opened nearly every single other book and skimmed the blurb. Yes, this took days, but like I said in my…

    Random Writing Thoughts

    Hello! ^_^ In my entire life, I have never failed to finish a project I wanted to finish. Never. In my life. And it’s probably because I sometimes force myself to sit down and write. If I’m on the “right” project I don’t have to force the writing, but I often have to force myself to sit down and do it, or it just doesn’t get done. Part of how I keep up with things is with a planner. Sometimes, having a long to-do list stresses me out, until I remember that it’s self-imposed, and I don’t actually have to do any of it. But I’ve been going back and…

    Melodramatic Reading Goal Talk :D

    For some insane reason, I gave myself 9 books to read in January. >.< In my defense, most of the books are shorter or easier to read. And also in my defense, I actually originally wrote down 8 books, and that’s the goal I have posted by my desk, so really, I don’t have to read 9 books to meet my goal. In any case, it’s halfway through the month (or so), and I have read two books!! Now, I’m not panicking. First of all, if I don’t get all the books read, it’s not a big deal. Second of all, I can still totally read most of them! Like…

    AudioBook Chat

    For years, I thought audiobooks were for businessmen and jet-setters – the people traveling all over the world for whatever reason. Too busy to relax or simply unable to sit down and read because they need to be in the car for seven hours. Then I won an audiobook. This was around four years ago. In full disclosure, I didn’t listen to this book until earlier this year, I think February. It’s not that I didn’t try. I bought the ebook the day it came out, so excited because it’s a companion novel to one of my favorite books. In any case, I had a hard time getting into this…

    Personality Disorder

    Firstly, there’s a fun WHISPER Interview up on Sunflower’s Blog. Go read it. ^_^ So, I’m an INTJ according to 16personalities.com – This makes me an architect, “imaginative and strategic.” ^_^ When I first heard of the test, via my brother, out of a book, I think, I don’t remember exactly what I got. I think it was INTP (which doesn’t fit as well as INTJ, unfortunately and honestly – because INTJs are a mess) – but all I know for sure was that I was offended. I didn’t like being called an “introvert” back then, you see. I didn’t realize how awesome we are until someone sent me a list…
