Sentences that actually made me laugh out loud while reading

Recently I watched a Youtube video of a programmer explaining programming memes (dude, writing that really makes me want to defend myself, but I decline), and this post kind of feels like that. If I just copy and paste the quotes without context, they probably won't be funny. And if I explain them, they probably… Continue reading Sentences that actually made me laugh out loud while reading

How I fell down a rabbit hole about hackers, and what I learned.

I don't play video games, and therefore have basically no knowledge about them. But when my classmate mentioned she had gotten sucked into a game called Cyberpunk 2077, I actually knew what she was talking about. I had read a profile on the game's creator in The Atlantic's December 2020 issue: "We Are Living in… Continue reading How I fell down a rabbit hole about hackers, and what I learned.

I finally read those classics I bought two years ago

One on hand, I wouldn't really recommend any of these, and on the other, I would recommend all of them. That's how I feel about classics in general. (Of course To Kill a Mockingbird is an exception, that goes without saying.)

The market for… Continue reading The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Book Tag

Reading tools to books is like ketchup to fries. Fries are delicious by themselves, but sauce makes them even more amazing. Okay, that's all the intro I have. Book darts // the ultimate bookmark A book dart in action One time I read somewhere that paperclips have reached paperclip-perfection. (Plato and his ideal forms can… Continue reading Reading tools I would figuratively die for

Four memoirs I would recommend off the top of my head

(Okay fine, if I was going for complete accuracy here, it would be off the top of my head + looking at my Goodreads shelves, but that's way too long a title.) If you don't read much non-fiction, I feel like memoirs are the closest thing to fiction. They're basically novels written in first person… Continue reading Four memoirs I would recommend off the top of my head

My 2020 summer bucket list // collab with Purely Oliva and Not All Who Sonder!

Last year summer started when school ended, but this year, my marker for the beginning of summer has changed to the switch from nice to hot weather. Which in an unfortunate series of events, happened last week. Ugh, that allusion doesn't even make sense. Where am I going with this intro? Dude, writing intros is… Continue reading My 2020 summer bucket list // collab with Purely Oliva and Not All Who Sonder!
