Happy Friday, everyone! And guess what?! I'M FINALLY FREE!!! As of yesterday, I have officially defended my master's thesis, so now I really have nothing left to do. Except read. And sleep. And bake Christmas cookies. And play lots of violin, piano, and ukulele. And watch Lost in Space, Season 3. All of which I'm … Continue reading What I Read in November 2021

Happy Friday, everyone! Gosh, you have no idea how glad I am that it's finally Friday! This past week has been an absolute whirlwind.

Happy Friday, everyone! Honestly, it feels so great to be back among the lazy!

Yup, this is definitely a pretty accurate representation of my life right now 🤣 The only thing that is putting a … Continue reading The Liebster Award Mash-Up Post
Happy Friday, everyone!!! Gosh, you have no idea how thrilled I am to say that 🤗 I'm back!!! The last few weeks have been absolutely insane, and I still can't quite believe that I actually handed in my thesis and have free time now. The whole concept sounds alien, somehow.

No, I’m not back so soon after saying I was going on hiatus 😅 My thesis still has me in its grasp, don’t you worry… This post is a throwback to August, back when I still had a somewhat reasonable amount of spare time on my hands. Riddhi @Whispering Stories somehow managed to convince me to do another one of these interviews, and this is the result! I hope you enjoy reading, and that this at least partially makes up for you not hearing from me for a while 😉

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you've all had a great start to October, and that you're reading loads of spooky books to make up for the fact that I've been reading nothing!

Happy Friday, everyone, and welcome to October! To be honest, September was a very mixed month for me.

Happy Friday, everyone! I've been spending all week correcting exams and feverishly working on my thesis, which needs to be handed in only a month from now. Where did all the time go?!

Happy Friday, everyone! Truth be told, I've had a horrendous week. I just lost my grandfather, and since everything happened so suddenly, I didn't make it in time to see him before he died.

Happy Friday, everyone... ... and welcome to September! Honestly, August went by so fast, it was a blur.

Happy Friday, everyone! And guess what? My period of ignoring you is over! I'm back home!

Een goede vrijdag allemaal! Please tell me I didn't butcher that too badly, Dutch people 😅 Your language is so similar to German that it's been confusing the heck out of me, but I've been trying my very best to not be that arrogant neighbor and learn at least a few phrases.

Happy Friday, everyone, and welcome to August! July was a whirlwind of a month for me: I had exams, had to grade loads of other people's exams, got fully vaccinated, got to know my bed a bit better because of getting fully vaccinated, and spent a bunch of time making angry faces at my computer … Continue reading What I Read in July 2021
"What's the cube root of eight?" the computer asks. "Where am I?" I say again. This time, it's easier. "Incorrect. What's the cube root of eight?" I take a deep breath and speak slowly. "Two times e to the two-i-pi." "Incorrect. What's the cube root of eight?" But I wasn't incorrect. I just wanted to … Continue reading Book Review: Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
Happy Friday, everyone! No, I'm not intentionally spoiling you with two posts today. Well, I guess I kind of am, but I really wanted to write a review for A Little Life (a.k.a. the saddest book in existence 😭😭😭), and it felt weird to also include the answers to my Can You Guess the Books … Continue reading Emoji Quiz Answers and a Quick Check-In
