Here‘s (most of) the graphic novels I gotta read this summer for class. The remaining six(!) of them are on reserve from the library and should be coming in soon. Oof.

Oops someone left me in the library unattended. (I went in to learn about the summer reading program and grab B. J. Novak‘s The Book with No Pictures but got another novel that looks FASCINATING.

So I‘ve been told about this book that it is, alternately, the greatest and most profoundly moving book of all time and that it is the most pretentious piece of crap ever put to paper. So naturally I have to figure out for myself which one it is.

I‘m doing a Facebook Live storytime for my friends tonight, on a whim, and here are the books I‘ve chosen! Not sure I‘ll do all of them or let folks choose but we‘ll see what happens!

I decided to opt for a reread first, and the scariest thing about this book is how badly this copy is falling apart! I‘m greatly enjoying it nonetheless, nostalgia carries far, and am still very excited for the movie!

As some sort of bizarre coping mechanism, during the last couple weeks of classes I somehow brought home 30 LIBRARY BOOKS. Here are the ones that aren‘t picture books or currently on my mother‘s desk. (She wanted to read it. What can I say? I‘m an enabler.) Now that I‘m done with the semester I can actually maybe read some of them! But where to begin?

Hi all! This is a quick note to say that, although I am still very into makeup and dresses, I am genderfluid and/or genderqueer in some as yet undetermined capacity. I will keep you posted, but until then, they/them pronouns please! Thank you! (Pictured is my new lipstick primer. Not sure it‘ll help, but what a name!)

Just so you all know, I‘m alive! But it‘s finals week, so I won‘t really be posting much until May 10th or so. This summer expect to hear a lot more from me. I‘ll be covered in graphic novels all summer semester long! (Pic is the candy I just bought for a total of $9.10. I hope it gets me through the rest of the semester!)

Colorado does a program each year where they give a free book to four year olds from the library. This year‘s book is Penguinaut! I had the chance to read it today and it‘s extremely cute. Definitely recommend. And if you‘re in Colorado and have a four year old, come to the library and get one!

Thank you for enduring all my boring grad school posts. Next semester I‘m taking a Graphic Novels and Manga class so that should warrant more fun pictures. In the mean time, four chapters each from two books that I‘m trying to get through tonight. 🙀

Paisley is looking at my planner, incredulously, wondering how I‘m going to find the time to volunteer at the library in my town as well as the TWO OTHER LIBRARIES I just applied to volunteer with tonight. I‘m mainly just hoping I survive grad school at this point, and here I am making myself busier. 😹

So some lady on eBay was selling a huge lot of washi tape for a relatively small amount of money. Needles to say I bought it. I‘m going to decorate all my correspondence from now on with way too much of the stuff. Can‘t wait to write some more letters!

I got this cool new planner because bullet journaling was being a bit too much for me while I was already so overwhelmed with grad school. I hope this helps. I was also just informed that January 2019-December 2020 is my Saturn Return time. I don‘t know if I believe in astrology but it would be a good explanation for why I‘m such a mess. (Also that‘s the exact dates and duration of my schooling. Coincidence? Probably.)

On the bright side, here‘s Paisley (#dogsoflitsy). On the crappy side, I‘ve fallen way behind in school and I have no idea how to tackle the amount of work I currently have left to do. I‘ve pretty much just spent the last two weeks staring into space and feeling horrible about it. Does anyone have any advice for playing a really urgent game of catch-up? (Preferably advice for someone dealing with mental illness.)

MCYmermaid No strategic suggestions, but sending support & encouragement. 2mo
CouronneDhiver Don‘t spend a lot of time over-analyzing, but it‘s easier to tackle a big project in small “bites”... divide and conquer! 💪🏽 2mo

Another hold book from the library came in today. I‘m so overwhelmed and overloaded with stuff to read and do at the moment I don‘t even know what to do. I mean, I COULD return all my library books and read books I own...but that sounds like quitter talk. (Another note, isn‘t this cover awesome?)

Not book related but a couple months back I weighed 200lbs. I‘ve mostly just been moderating portions, eating more veggies, and trying to move more. Also I‘m working on not moralizing my food choices, which I‘ve found very difficult but rewarding.

I‘ve decided a fun and potentially lucrative way to get rid of high quality books I no longer need would be to sell bookish blind dates on Etsy. I see that other people are doing it so it is a thing! I probably won‘t buy anything for this until I have at least 20 books ready to go (I currently have 3 or 4) so I guess I‘d better get reading!
