💛Day-Dreaming💛

This one is kind of cheesy, but whatever! Daydreaming is enjoyable and a great way to get good ideas.

You get idea from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. 

The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it.

📝Poetry + Writing📝

As many of you already know, I am not only an avid reader, but a writer. One of my favorite types of writing is poetry. Although I rarely write poetry, I think it is beautiful.

🌎Globes🌎

Globes may seem like a random, insignificant household object, but oh boy, you’re wrong. Globes tell the story of the earth. It’s lakes, mountains, oceans, deserts, you name it. It is a tangible display of humanity’s regime on planet earth and a precise graph of existence and space. Wow, I am such an intelligent, observant scholar. You can find the timezone of a certain location in comparison to another. And, one can even see the center of the world.*

Also, it spins.

I find this extremely entertaining.
*Fun Fact: The center of the world is where the Equator and the Prime-Meridian meet, off the coast of West Africa

🌿Plants🌿

Person: Globes and poetry? And now plants? Wow, Katie needs to get out more no offense…

Me: Excuse me? Globes are awesome, poetry is beautifully artistic, and plants are amazing.

Person: *Coughs in spite of all the smoke because oooooof they got roasted so hard by Katie That Bookish Girl herself. Call 911, the world is on fire. 🔥

Just kidding, that wasn’t a roast, but globes, poetry, and plants are superb. First of all, plants are great for maintaining and keeping safe, refreshing, air quality levels in your home. Plants are also decorative and look good on a desk or a table. Not only that, but plants require little attention and care. All that is needed is a small amount of water every day, depending on what type of plant you are purchasing.

Just now realizing that in the paragraph above I sounded like a salesmen at Home Depot or Lowe’s.

I have a houseplant on my desk named Josephine (yes, I name my plants 😂) and I really enjoy having her.

📺The Office📺

This one should be pretty obvious because I used a little bit of foreshadowing expressing my love for The Office a GIF ago.

My favorite character is, without a doubt, Pam Beesely.

Also Jim and Pam are sooooooooo perfect together. Whenever they’re on-screen together, my inner fangirl swoons inside.

I’M RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS?! *Please help me*

As you can tell by the title of this post, I am in a state of desperation.

That is why I need you to help me.

Are you ready?

Can you do that blogosphere?

Please?
Anyone?

Blog Arrow Gold

Greetings, bookish friends!

Now that the slightly over dramatic montage is over, we can get down to business.

I am running out of ideas for blog posts + I need help.

So of course, like any normal fangirl-ish teenage girl with a computer and a book blog would do, I leaned on the blogosphere for support.

If any of you have noticed, I have been taking a mini hiatus. I just moved to a new school this year, and its been taking a while to adjust to my schedule. So I haven’t really had the free time to write a blog post, and academics always come first.

I am open to any suggestions that you guys have for me. I will do collabs, book reviews, WISvsWIF specials, and anything bujo/stationary. Or something else I really don’t care.

I’m counting on you.

Keep On Helping Me Be A Decent Book Blogger,

June Monthly Recap

IMG_0577.jpg

Happy Saturday everyone! Today I will be sharing with you what I read this month, a spoiler free mini review included, my blog stats for this month, and an update on NaNoWriMo at the end! Enjoy.

June Reads

The Hunger Games

Let me just start off by saying that this book is hyped up for a reason. The pacing was so good that I literally couldn’t set it down, the plot and storyline forced the reader to think and reflect upon the main message in the story, the romance was sweet and full but not overdone, and all the characters were amazing. I have been wanting to read these books for quite a while, but wasn’t allowed to until I was older because of the violence. I’m partially glad for this because I wouldn’t have understood it as much if I had read it when I was 9.

Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖

Catching Fire

At first I was kind of nervous to read this book because the original is *almost* always better than the sequel. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. Just like the first installment, Catching Fire was full of exciting twists and turns in the plot/storyline, a meaningful message, and debatably the best protagonist of all time. Can’t wait to read the Mockingjay!

Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖

The Name of This Book is Secret

I loved this book as well! The writing style and the pacing were spot on, and the characters from the protagonists to the villains were unique, in a good way. This was a quick and an entertaining book, and easily made the reader want to come back for more.

Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖

Fish in a Tree

I enjoyed this book for the most part, but there were some minor problems with it. For example Other than that, it was an excellent book with a good message

Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖

Overall, I’m really happy with the books I read this month. The worst rating I gave was 4 hearts, which is still any amazing rating!

NaNoWriMo Update

I’ll admit, the first month of NaNo has been hard, even though I’ve spilt up writing 50k into 3 months rather than one month, it’s still difficult. I did this because I wanted to take my time on my writing and not just rush to make a lame rough draft that will take a lot of editing later to fix.

I am little bit behind, but I don’t really care–all that really matters is that I’m passionate about my writing, working hard, and genuinely enjoying the experience.

It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.

Plan With Me: July 2018 (Daisy theme)

pwmj-cover.jpg

Hi, and welcome back to another Plan With Me post! Last time we had a watermelon theme to kick off summer but now we have a daisy theme. This month, I switched up a lot of things with my bullet journal. I took out my mood tracker, habit tracker, and changed the layout of my weekly spreads. Hope you enjoy!

Supplies:

  • Minimalism Art A5 Dotted Journal
  • Crayola Supertips 100 count
  • Pilot Precise Rolling Ball
  • A good ol’ classic pencil
  • A good ol’ classic eraser

All of these supplies have worked great and I haven’t had any problems.

First I have my cover page! I’m pretty happy with how this turned out. I even have a Tom Petty quote/song lyric on the other side! In case you didn’t know, I love Tom Petty.

Next is the monthly log! Nothing special here.

Above is my NaNoWriMo tracker! Last month I made one (I didn’t have it in last month’s Plan With Me, though) and found it really useful. This was an absolute nessicity to have.

In case any of you are wondering why I am doing NaNo in both June and July it’s because I spilt the challenge into 3 months so I wouldn’t be stressed and could focus on making a good first draft.

Next is the Blog Stats page, which includes post ideas, and what I read. I didn’t do this last month and I think it will definately come in handy!

JULPWM78.jpg

Then I have my money tracker. I find this spread very useful, even if it is boring to fill it out.

Here is the Brain Dump page. When I put this in last month’s bujo, I wasn’t expecting it to be useful. I was wrong and I love this spread and am very happy with how it turned out!

JULPWM910.jpg

And finally my weekly spread! I decided to change things up a bit and I loved how this spread turned out.

Thank you for reading my latest Bullet Journal post! What do you think of this spread? Do you like this month’s theme? Let me know down in the comments section.
