With summer right at my door (one week left you guys!!!), I thought it would be a great idea to kick off my break with my summer 2016 bucket list!

Summer 2016 Bucket List

You know how much I love making list, so I thought this was appropriate. I’ve made summer bucket lists for a few years now, and I absolutely love the idea of planning what I want to do during summer!  View Post

I’ve been working harder and harder recently on creating a blogging routine that works for me. I had set it as one of my goals for the summer to not only find a blogging process that works for me but to also get on a regular posting schedule.

My Blogging Process

While I haven’t entirely been able to do the latter just yet (there are still weeks where I’m not posting according to my regular Tuesday-Friday schedule), I have definitely been able to find a blogging routine! So I thought I would share a little bit of what’s happening behind the scenes and share my blogging processView Post

After a poll I recently did on my Twitter account, I realized that you wanted me to write more book-related posts, and I’m really happy about that since I love books! As you know, I’m a huge bookworm and am always on the hunt for my next favorite read.

But I know not everyone loves reading as much as I do. It can be hard for people to find a book that’s not too heavy, with a limpid style and an addicting story. And you know what genre reminded me of that? Young Adult. This genre also happens to be one of my favorites, exactly for the reasons stated above! I love dystopian stories and fantasy, and this is what YA normally offers.

Favorite Young Adult Series

In that state of mind, I have decided to list ten of my favorite YA series, in the hope that I might be able to recommend you something new that you might like!

How a Niche Online Group Changed My Life

Rewind back to June of 2014…

I had just graduated high school and had my sights set on a marketing major (my parent’s ideas and recommendation, not mine) at a school that wasn’t really known for its business. All I ever wanted to do was make an impression and fit in easily with my peers. So there I was, age eighteen, afraid, nervous and extremely shy (as a result of years of torturous self-destruction with help from others at school).

But I still wanted to change the way I was looked at in high school when I went to my new school. I concentrated my mindset to just be outgoing and extremely talkative at university; but when the time came around in August I was back in the same spot. I found myself falling back into the hole I had tried to come out of. I tried many outlets to find friends, but nothing seemed to lean in my favor.

After I looked around my dorm, searched in my classes, and joined a sports club, I was still not having any success in the friend department (or educational department, for that matter). I found myself hating school, detesting my classes, and I ended up loathing who I had become again. Disliking yourself is not really a way to go through life, but I was trying my best to just make it though the first semester of college.  View Post
