A few months ago, I was sitting in the hammock on my porch, trying to read, and being rather unsuccessful. I was also trying to write about where my brain was currently at, in an attempt to organize it I guess, but was also being rather unsuccessful.
Over the past week I’ve woken up at home. Finally at home, and for an indefinite period of time. I’ve looked forward to this very much since I haven’t gotten to stay in one place indefinitely for a very long time. Continue reading
Because there are just not enough lists like this! Here are 25 things that are just great about life right now if you were standing in my shoes. Continue reading
As promised, here is the latest Coffee Shop Tourist post from my list of favorite places that supply me with wonderful vanilla coffee beverages. Continue reading
I have found my new favorite coffee shop to write in y’all.
I’ve always loved the idea of sitting in a cute, local coffee shop for hours and hours to write with a floppy notebook and a hot drink, clicking away on a laptop keyboard occasionally. It sounds fun and Continue reading
In all honesty, I’m finding it really difficult to be content where I am at the moment. Laziness and lethargy all too easily creep into my mindset along with the knowledge that, “I really should be studying right now.” And that gets me daydreaming Continue reading
I’m going to write a coffee shop tourist post today because I haven’t written one of those in a while. This photo was taken in a new Costa location by Portsmouth and Southsea station. It’s closer to my Tuesday morning lecture than the ones on Commercial Road, and I personally identify with Gilmore Girls at that time in the morning. Going to a coffee shop on a consistent basis for my lunch break in desperate need of coffee being the similarity I’m referring to. Continue reading
If I am going to be perfectly honest I’d have to say that I drafted this blog post during one of my lectures this afternoon. Yes, I know I should have been taking notes, but it at least looked like I was. I sit towards the back and text my sister back in America or doodle song lyrics in my notebook. Don’t worry I can still give a general outline of the lecture. But today I chose to spend the two-hour slot drafting a post on What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Write (really long title I know so I shortened it later). Continue reading
It’s one of those rainy days. The good ones. Like the ones when I was younger where I would stay in my room and find my copy of Inkheart by Cornelia Funke to read for hours and hours. I’m not sure why, but it was always my rainy day go-to book. I think it was because of the way the book starts in the first chapter. With the rain on the window. I love it. Continue reading
So I might have a slight notebook addiction. I guess this could be assumed since I’m doing a Creative Writing degree, but I’m in my second year and I still haven’t taken my laptop to a lecture or seminar once. I always handwrite everything in a notebook first. I just really like the motion of writing everything by hand. Clicking away on a keyboard is fun and all but doesn’t compare to thick ink on fresh paper. Continue reading
