January Wrap-Up: In a word, oof

I’M SUFFERING.

I know you may be tempted to be like “Oh, she’s just saying that,” due to the fact that I constantly complain and constantly exaggerate and not a single thing I have ever said can or should be trusted from now until the end of time.

But ignore all that, because I’M SUFFERING. Continue reading

December Wrap-Up: The most wonderful time of the year (allegedly)

I’M LATE, I’M LATE, I’M LATE. FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE. NO TIME TO SAY HELLO, GOODBYE, I’M LATE, I’M LATE, I’M LATE!

Except actually I do have time to say hello. Because the thing I’m late for is wrapping up December. Which is what we’re doing now.

Happy New Year! I actually liked books in 2018 and here’s the proof

Here’s a confession that has nothing to do with this post: Nearly every single time I write anything or introduce myself in a bookish setting in any way, I am overwhelmingly tempted to write/say-sing “Hey what’s up hello myyyy name is Emma and today we’re talking about dinosaurs/writing about my undying affection for that picture of Orlando Bloom riding a bike with his dog in a DIY Baby Björn/thinking about the 80 cookies I baked that are sitting downstairs/stressing about volcanos that are past due to explode,” like Emma Books who I think might have an excess of Ms in her username and also is constantly totally irrevocably messing up my SEO.

Anyway, in this case I’d conclude that catchphrase-stealing with “wrapping up the year on a rare positive note.” Woo! Continue reading

November Wrap-Up: I’m dying, but it’s fine

I SHOULD NOT BE WRITING THIS BLOG POST.

Just feet away from me is a fun taped-up piece of wall art with the very fun title “DECEMBER DUE DATES” written in deceptively pretty blue-gray marker. Open in other windows on my laptop I have three papers, a presentation and a massive final project. Also my water bottle is empty and I’m kind of thirsty. And could do with a mandarin orange.

Basically I’m being pulled in 100 different equally important directions and I should go to one of them. But I started doing this instead, so. Continue reading
