HERE WE ARE AGAIN.
My fourth-most recent post is a wrap up of FOUR MONTHS. Merely three posts ago!! That’s how recently we did this!!
And yet somehow, enough months have since passed that I have to wrap up five more. Continue reading
It’s been a goddamn while.
And when it’s been a goddamn while (read: FOUR MONTHS)…then we’ve got a goddamn lot to catch up on. So let’s get into it. Continue reading
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
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!

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.

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
OCTOBER IS THE BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR!!!
Looking back, it seems obvious. My birth month + Halloween + good weather + I’m out of my reading slump + my favorite cookies at my local grocery store were briefly 50% off.
BUT I WAS OBLIVIOUS TO THE POTENTIAL THAT OCTOBER COULD BE THIS GOOD!!
Let’s talk about it. Continue reading
