I know a lot of random information, and I have the blessing-curse combo of being able to see every side of a problem. I figured I could put all this to good use. So I’ve introduced “the Well,” my contribution of knowledge to the world. Ask me anything–advice on a relationship problem, how to make your own jewelry, what book you should read next, how to properly use punctuation, whether the moon is made of cheese, etc. The world is your oyster, and I want nothing more than to help you harvest the pearl.

My most frequent thought while scrolling through Facebook is “that’s… that’s not a thing.” People love to make up words to describe themselves in order to feel special, but unfortunately most of the people who show up in my newsfeed don’t have the creativity of Lewis Carroll or Dr. Seuss.

I did this not too long ago in my post that was just a bunch of lists because I couldn’t come up with anything better to write about. (Why does inspiration only hit when I don’t have time to write?) But this week’s Fandom Friday, hosted by The Fangirl Initiative, is all about fictional doppelgängers, whether in looks, personality, or how others perceive you. So here goes. (more…)
Top 5 Wednesday is hosted over at this goodreads group, and involves, obviously, listing the top five… something. This week’s topic is series that took a while to get into, but were worth the long haul. I only have four to list this week, mostly because usually if I don’t like the first book of a series, I won’t finish it. Ain’t nobody got time for that. (more…)
