My First Blogging Challenge

Hello and happy Monday everyone. When I first started my blog, I didn’t exactly know what I was doing (not that I really know what I’m doing now, el oh el) but I came across the A to Z April Challenge and I figured

I honestly don’t know what my life is about right now. I cannot fathom how or why I have managed to inflict so much damage to my poor fingers in one day. Paper cuts are like ninjas.

One of my biggest pet peeves in a book is the shallow friendships. Or how most female characters don’t have a true best friend. They prefer to go solo so they can spend most of the time with the love interest/representative hottie. But let’s face it: usually girls are social creatures and most of them have a best friend in their high schools years (and even throughout their lives).

Here are some common mistakes I see when writing in a best friend secondary character:

Three:Thirty Thursdays | Episode Six – What Do You Meme?

I feel like laughing. Today has been an annoying day, and all I want to do right now is laugh.

Enjoy 🙂








I’ll save you!


Worst. Decision. Ever.

My sentiments exactly.

I feel better now. 🙂 Happy Thursday!

I'm Convinced !

Just thought I’d share this:

I’m 100% totally convinced that CapriSun drinks and Wheat Thins are laced with crack or some other addictive drug. I just devoured half a box while sitting at my desk AND drank 3 CapriSun pouches in literally 2.5 minutes. Savage.
