The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider (+ my new review format!)

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Good morning! I've decided to change things up around here because I obviously couldn't keep up with how I was doing things before. I have chosen a new review format and will be posting reviews for books I read besides the ones that have been requested.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The Beginning of Everything

Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and his social life.

No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.

But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?

I am SO bad at posting on here. Trust me, I'm perfectly aware of that fact. I need to get organized.

I just wanted to let you all know that new reviews are coming! I'm reading a lot for school but also on my own and have a couple of books that I've been asked to review. I'm so sorry it takes me so long! Feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads to keep up with what I'm reading!

Taking Time For Yourself + Some Ideas

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Hey guys! It's been so ridiculously long since I posted on here but I started working full time and I have tons of books to read for my college class that I'm taking. I've had basically no time for anything.

(now disclaimer that this post will probably be a bit jumbled because I just had an anxiety attack and I'm just writing how things come out without any major edits.)

I have learned over the years that time for myself, where I can do things that I want to do instead of have to do, is mandatory. I'm absolutely not one of those people who can just go-go-go and work all the time. I have NO IDEA how people can do that. Even working 9-5 Monday - Friday is honestly a bit much for me. When I don't find time for myself I shut down. Crying, anxiety attacks, etc. It's just not good.

Also my boss sucks and he's the reason for tonight's anxiety attack so there's that.

Mental health is SO important!

So here are some idea's for things to do for yourself:


  1. Read a book (that doesn't HAVE to be read for something)
  2. Take a bubble bath (okay so I've never used a bath bomb but those things look heavenly and I think I need some)
  3. Browse Pinterest
  4. Watch Youtube videos (funny, cute, vlogs, etc. So much to choose from)
  5. Organize something (desk, room, etc)
  6. Go for a walk.
  7. Do some Yoga
  8. Write in a journal
  9. Color (My current favorite coloring book is this one!)
  10. Cook
  11. Bake
  12. Draw
  13. Stretch
  14. Write a letter
  15. Learn about something you're interested in
  16. Take some photos
  17. Play with your pet
  18. Watch a movie
  19. Catch up on or start a new TV show
  20. Paint Your Nails (why not have a home spa day? Bath, nails, facial?)
  21. Take a Nap
  22. Find some new music
  23. Exercise (endorphins are awesome. Plus I know I feel so much better when I am regularly exercising)
  24. Learn a new skill
  25. Lay down and listen to music

So this is all I have off the top of my head right now but I would LOVE for you guys to add some of your own ideas down in the comments!
