Hello lovelies, how is everyone doing? The blogosphere has been a relatively quiet place lately so I thought I would drop in and liven it up a little bit. So here's my life currently.

Watching: I have been watching a lot. TV shows have been starting back up and this season I am watching The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Sleepy Hollow, Once Upon a Time, and American Horror Story. I also saw the first episode of Reign and enjoyed it so that might be added to the list as well.

Reading: I have been reading soooo much. I read the entire Vampire Academy series and all that is currently out for the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead. I've read The Raven Boys & The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater and I just finished Night World vol 2 by LJ Smith. I am thinking about picking up the Divergent trilogy next.

Listening to: I have been switching between my Lorde, Imagine Dragons & Panic! at the Disco, and Feveray Pandora stations.

Wearing: Lots of leggings and t-shirts with fuzzy socks to keep my feet warm. And I have been making it a point to do my makeup on a semi-regular basis again which just makes me feel better about life in general. It's amazing what some eyeshadow and lipgloss can do for my mood.

Eating & Drinking: Lots of coffee and tea as far as beverages go. Eating has mostly been stuff like toast and tomato soup. I'm settling into fall eating habits. I want breads and soups ad everything pumpkin.

Thinking About: My novel for Nanowrimo as well as a lot of personal stuff. My world is shifting again. I try to get all my thoughts out on paper to help keep them sorted. I've been emotional lately. I went from feeling anxious and sad to feeling angry and ready to rip people's eyes out. It's been interesting to say the least.

Doing: Job hunting. I have put out tons of applications the past few weeks. I've heard back from a few companies about writing positions and have been writing sample articles and the like. I've also spent a large amount of my free time dancing around my apartment to loud pop music. Like I said, lipgloss does wonders, haha.

What are you up to currently? Does anyone have any book recommendations? I'm always looking for more. I'm particularly interested in anything fantasy, especially if it's YA lit.

  1. You're so beautiful ♥ I always love seeing your posts pop up in my feed.

    I've just finished reading The Night Circus which I think you would really enjoy, if you haven't read it already! I wouldn't quite class it as YA, but at the same time it feels quite YAy to me, if that makes sense!

    1. Aw thanks hun <3 I have that on my nook, I think I'll read it soon :)

  2. I'm doing pretty good myself. My bipolar is being a rabid roller coaster ride, up and down, by the hour. But outside of that, and being tired, I am doing pretty damn good. I quite like Panic! at the Disco. Oh, and, Pandora. <3 I truly hope that you'll find a job you l-o-v-e. You deserve SO much happiness!

  3. I just read The Raven Boys this week, too! How was book 2? I'm waiting for it from the library right now.

    Also, regarding eating habits: what about pumpkin soup in a bread bowl? Ultimate fall meal. ;)

    1. Oh god, the second one is even better. I have so many feelings about it, ughsjzhgfyljuszgbf

      And that pretty much sounds like the best fall meal ever.


Thank you so much for your comments! I love hearing from my readers and your support means a lot to me!
