Staying Organized: Good Habits

One of the most important parts of staying organized, especially when you’re busy, is having good habits. If you try to do everything all in one day you’ll get stressed, but if you do a little bit every day your life will be so much easier. I always make a little time for organization every…

The Grim Alliance: Review

The Grim Alliance, Infidel books #2: Angela R. Watts This book was a great follow-up to The Divided Nation, and left me in even further suspense. I can’t wait to see where Angela goes with this series in the future! I recently reviewed the first novel in the series, and was super excited when I…

Ivy Introspective: Review

In a world that doesn’t understand her, how can she grow? Ivy Introspective is one of my favorite Chronicles of Alice and Ivy books. I absolutely love Ivy, and the transformation she undergoes over the course of the novel is very well-done and impressive. The characters are what really tug on me for this series,…

Staying Organized: Bullet Journals

Today I’m going to be talking a lot about bullet journals, especially the system I use.

Writing Tips from Pinterest

To be honest, I learned SO much from Pinterest, I don’t even know where to start! I also gained a lot of knowledge from bloggers like Kellyn Roth and Kingdom Pen. I’m going to share about six pieces of my favorite writing advice, but at the end, I’ll also share the link to my whole…

Three Snippets: The Runaway Princess

I’m currently working at a camp, and will be all summer. Last week Wednesday was our arrival day, so I didn’t have time to put out a post. I may change my posting day to match my day off, Sunday, but for now it will still be Wednesday. Anyway, today I have a lovely bunch…

Poem: It Seemed So Easy

So today I’m sharing a little bit of poetry I wrote late freshman year. It’s actually a song, but I’ve yet to finish the music bit. Here it is! It seemed so easy All you have to do is talk So why do the words stick in my throat It seemed so easy Just open…
