I don't know about y'all but when quarantine started I was at a loss for what to do. Craft? Can only do that so many hours of the day. Get a head start on school work? Um... no. Exercise? ......... So I didn't have that much going on lol. But for the first time in… Continue reading Reading During Quarantine

Why I’m bad at Bookstagram…
It is literally no secret that I am inconsistent as heck. I mean, just look at the dates of my blog posts... a few consistent posts here or there, and then MONTHS of silence. I know that this is bad, but honestly... it's worse over on Instagram. I've been trying to post more recently, but… Continue reading Why I’m bad at Bookstagram…
Diversifying my Bookshelf: Black Authors
Hello and welcome back to Monika tries to diversify her reading list! Something else that I want to be cognizant of, especially when it comes to reading Black authors, is that I don't only read books about slavery or anti-racism. I think those books have a lot of important and should all be read, but… Continue reading Diversifying my Bookshelf: Black Authors
Diversifying my Bookshelf: Indigenous Authors
With everything that has been going on in the United States and essentially the world (aka. the calling out of racism both in police brutality, systemic structures and our everyday lives) I thought that it would be a good idea to try to actively learn more about how I can combat racism in my life.… Continue reading Diversifying my Bookshelf: Indigenous Authors
Where have I been!
It's been a while since I've posted so I figured that I owed everyone a little explanation as to where I've been (hint: I haven't actually left my apartment that much, but my brain has been in outer space!). Since COVID-19 started my life has been thrown off a bit like a lot of people.… Continue reading Where have I been!
Blog Log #6!
On today, the last day of 2018, and I feel like I have so much to be thankful for. This year has definitely had its ups and downs, but overall I think that I've been super lucky and happy with how its gone. One huge thing that I've accomplished is that I'm nearly done my… Continue reading Blog Log #6!
Cafe Collection #3
Ahhhh Monday. The start of a new week. I honestly don't hate Monday (but that's probably only because it's summer right now, I'm sure once school starts I'll be back on the I-wish-I-could-stay-in-bed bus). It's also the last Monday before the start of school, so someone please take this down - August 27th, 2018 is… Continue reading Cafe Collection #3
Blog Log #5!
Wow where did August go?? It's literally the 20th and I feel like I haven't done anything this summer. That's an over exaggeration - I've done a boat load. But everything seems to flit away when I try to think of all I did haha. Big things? I'm going into my final year of my… Continue reading Blog Log #5!
Cafe Collection #2
While back in Newfoundland I've spent a lot of time study and expanded my (very limited) knowledge of cafes in St. John's. I normally just spend my time at Jumping Bean, seeing as there is a tragic shortage of non-chain cafes here. But I think I might have just discovered a new winner. Georgetown Cafe… Continue reading Cafe Collection #2
Bookmarks are growing on me…
Good morning all! What a week! My spring break/reading week has officially begun and I'm so excited to see my family. I'm planning on doing so much this week, with studying, reading and hanging out with friends and family all on my schedule. But first, I thought that I would do my very first product… Continue reading Bookmarks are growing on me…
Hello hello! Welcome to more than halfway through February! What a month and a half it's been. Despite being really busy with school and my new commitments, I somehow managed to do quite a bit of reading. Of course, I'm still hacking away at London (I'm honestly just impressed that I'm almost halfway through it)… Continue reading Reading update!
Blog Log #4
Hello! Welcome to my fourth blog log! I'm really determined to do these once a month, and I'm super excited to share some really fun stuff that is going on in my life. So I don't 100% remember what I talked about last time, but I'll just start from the beginning. Since coming back to… Continue reading Blog Log #4
