May 2017 Wrap-Up

events – I turned 24. And I feel like I’m finally old. I’ve reached adulthood. I’ve crossed that threshold of no looking back. – I was terribly sick. Which doesn’t happen to me very often but it really took it out of me. I think it was a sinus infection? Maybe the flu? I don’t know. I…

April 2017 Wrap-Up

events – I got a new phone! I’ve been using the Amazon fire phone for the past four years and it basically became useless. It was an okay phone, but they didn’t sell a lot of them, so they completely stopped updating it. Most of my apps stopped working, and I didn’t have access to Google…

March 2017 Wrap-Up

events – I got my own domain name! If you’re reading this, you’ll see that my blog has changed quite a bit in the past month. I’m now Mixed Margins and am using Bluehost + WordPress instead of Blogger. There were a lot of reasons for the switch, and everything isn’t exactly how I want it yet,…

November Wrap-Up

events – I won NaNoWriMo and wrote a hot mess of a novel. It was mostly just me reliving my college life and describing what social anxiety feels like. My plot really hasn’t gone very far, but I managed to pass 50K by some miracle. See my winning post here. – I had three photoshoots. A…

October Wrap-Up

events – My Avatar/Korra unanswered questions post is now my most-viewed post of all time. I don’t know how this happened but it’s been getting a weird amount of views lately. I think it’s time to do more Korra posts. Strike while it’s hot. (Also it was announced that Korra comics will be out next…

September Wrap-Up

events – I got resorted on Pottermore. It had apparently been a very long time since I was last on and they completely redid everything. I had the option to keep my original house (Ravenclaw), but I decided to get resorted to see if it had changed. And I got sorted into Gryffindor, which I…

August Wrap-Up

I realize that all of my pictures lately have been either of my bird feeder or Rex. Sorry about that? events – I got a job! I was finally hired as technical editor for graduate students at the university.  It’s my first ever permanent full-time position. I feel much adult. 🙂 I even have business…
