(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
An explanation of this post's title: I know all the movies on this list are famous, but I feel like they're famous in different worlds: the documentary world, the Bollywood world, the classic high-school world, the general young public world, and the general older public world. There's only one movie on here you're probably guaranteed… Continue reading Five very different & very famous movies that I love
UPDATE: The movies I liked on this list were Groundhog Day, All the President's Men, The Emperor's New Groove, 10 Things I Hate About You, Roman Holiday, and E.T. My family doesn't naturally watch movies, so for the past two years, I've kind of tried to educate myself in the world of movies. In 2018,… Continue reading Backlist movies I want to watch in 2020

As soon as that drops, I am sure this list will expand. And it's a tentative list… Continue reading A short and tentative to be read list (ft. new fall releases!)
When I first thought of the idea for this post, I was like, okay this is as straightforward as can be. Then, while I was writing it, I thought-wouldn't it be interesting to hear about other people talk about this too? I feel like school can get rough so fast that once new school supplies… Continue reading A list of things I love about my school // collab with Purely Olivia and Story-Eyed!
The ice-cream truck man is nice. This past Sunday, the last day of June, I heard the unmistakable sound of the ice-cream truck in my neighborhood. I did the thing you're supposed to do and ran outside, barefoot. Two younger boys came out shortly after from the home right next to mine. I'm ninety-nine percent… Continue reading Life, lately (the ice-cream truck & a summer playlist)
