Reading, College Applications, and Netflix (or lack thereof)

So, as you may have noticed, I have been absent from my social media for the past months. No, this isn’t because I have retreated to a cabin in the woods to live a life of solitude, but rather my life has been taken over by color guard, school, and college applications. I haven’t even had much time to watch Netflix which, is super depressing when considering that fact that I still haven’t seen season one of Luke Cage, season four of Arrow, season eleven of Supernatural, or season five of Once Upon a Time. I promise I am working on getting caught up with all that, starting with Supernatural, but it is taking some time.
The reading side of my life is practically none existent, at the moment. I’m supposed to be reading A Tale of Two Cities for English class, but I just have no time! I’ve also been sporadically listening to Lady Midnight on Audiobook, but I’m nowhere near done with that… sorry. But I am LOVING Mark so far and I think Julian is beginning to get some development so I’m inter…

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: Book Vs Movie

Guess who finally got off her lazy butt and did something… MEEE! :)



I read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children a few years ago and, although the book was tedious at the beginning, I enjoyed it.

After becoming more interested in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, I finally checked it out this weekend and… I really enjoyed it!
Probably what surprised me the most is how accurate to the book the film was. I was expecting changes going in since I knew ahead of time that Emma’s peculiarity would be changed, but that was one of the biggest changes. With that said, I found that change odd, since it basically switched Emma and Olive’s peculiarities. Both characters still existed and served the same role, …

Where Have I Been?

It isn’t hard to notice but I haven’t been posting much lately, this goes for on here and on Instagram. To be honest, life has just been super busy. I know, everyone uses that excuse, but it is my senior year so I have to worry about applying to colleges on top of my usual work. I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like to; even though I do usually have a book with me, I don’t get a chance to read much. Around the middle of October I should be able to post and read more. At that time marching season will be over for me (other than football games) and I’ll have more time, I should also be done with applying to colleges soon. Anyway, I hope things have been good for you!
Keep Reading…
