Oy! Greeting blogging friends!

It is a very productive cycle that is absolutely guaranteed to screw over my sleep schedule once school starts… Continue reading Comparing books to punctuation // help the ap stylebook has infected my brain
Oy! Happy Thursday! How are we all doing? My goodness, this week has been BUSY. Finals have started and it is also production week for the newspaper.

Happy Valentines Day, bookworms! I hope everyone is having a charming day! My plans for the day are very elaborate. Basically, I am going to read some of my favorite rom-coms while eating Oreos. I might be really bold and watch some rom-coms too, we shall see. It is currently snowing (part iii of 8-10… Continue reading Ranking Romance Tropes // with recs!
The hype and I are mortal enemies, ever locked in an internal battle to the deaths. Ok, that might be a bit dramatic, but my point stands.

Hello fellow readers *enthusiastic wave* Does anyone else plan to read their way through Valentine's Day* and insert themselves into fictional worlds?? Cause, same.
