Story Time #1: The Time Someone Asked Me Out On A Coffee Date and I Didn’t Realize It

Hey everyone, it’s been a while. Yeah, I kind of reconnected with my inner Picasso and spend most of my time painting, in between doing chores and reading.

Today, I’m here to tell you a story (I’ll make sure to post reviews, T5W, and others soon, don’t worry) but before that, I’ll tell you what spur this on.

30 Days Blog Challenge: Master of Procrastination (Day 7)

day-7

Little kids, children, teenagers, adults… Everyone procrastinates. You’re lying if you tell me that you don’t procrastinate. Today, I’m not going to tell you why people procrastinate, why it happen. Instead, I am going to tell you what I do when I procrastinate (as a self-proclaimed Master of Procrastination).

You see, I write fanfictions, and my own original novel, and I blog, and make song covers (well, used to. Not so much anymore right now). And I have chores to do at home. But I found that I’m always procrastinating. Especially on weekends, and especially when my mum is not in the country (because my mum will bite my head off if I don’t finish washing the dishes, and my dad won’t care as long as there’s still mugs and plates and stuff he could use).

day-4-ipod-shuffle

Hey there, everyone~ I’m here again, and so far I’m still posting. Yay!
iPod shuffle is quite a popular internet tag for years. But if some of you don’t know what it is, let me explain. For this one, I’m supposed to put my iPod (or in my case, my MacBook’s iTunes) on shuffle, and list down the first 5 songs. Then, I have to write down what I feel about those songs, or the story behind them.

And so, let’s get started.

30 Days Blog Challenge: Close To Your Heart (Day 2)

close-to-your-heart

Hi guys~ It’s the second day of the 30 Days Blog Challenge…well, technically, it’s not, but I’m still awake, I have not gone to bed so I refuse to think of this as a new day.

Today’s topic is Close To Your Heart, and I’m supposed to write about the band/musician that is important to me.

Currently, I don’t really have any favourite bands or musicians. Most of the time, I just listen to whatever sounds nice on Youtube via video suggestions. But I do have three bands that is important to me.

I bet you’re wondering who ;-P Continue reading

30 Days Blog Challenge 2016: 20 Facts About Me (Day 1)

Hello, everyone.

This challenge is one of my attempt for me to blog everyday since I can’t seem to do that. I’m the type to go all out one week, and just disappear the next week, and randomly post stuff the week after, and then disappears again.

So, hopefully, with this challenge I’ll be disciplined to post everyday. Of course, I’ll also post book reviews and other book-related posts (this is still mainly a book blog after all) at the same time (when I have them done -_-;;)

Now, for the first day, we’ll start with something simple.
