    Best Friends Q+A + photos (also, blog anniversary!)

    Hello friends! Recently, Emma (one of my closest friends) and I were at Stone Mountain together. We both had cameras, and enlisted my brother to do a mini-photoshoot for us. We got a few photos together, so Emma was inspired by this post to do a Q+A post. In the past week we’ve pulled this together – hopefully it will be enjoyable! There will be a mix of selfies, photos from Stone Mountain, and photos from when we were little.     It also so happens that Monday was my blog anniversary, so this is as close as I’m getting to a blogiversary post. How have I been blogging for…

    Photos with the Minolta X-700

    Hey guys! I mentioned in this post that I was getting some pictures developed from an old film camera. They finally came back! A lot of them didn’t turn out well, mostly from user error since I’ve never used a film camera before. Some of them also have red spots on them because the film I used was probably 10+ years old. Anyway, here are some of my favorites. Aaaand, that’s all for today folks. They’re not that great, but hopefully I’ll get better  with practice. I just ordered some new film, so hopefully I can take some more photos soon. (:

    Writing updates + the beach + polaroid pictures

    Hello, people. A few items of business to bring us up-to-date: we went to the beach! I’m still alive, I promise. I’m still a writer even if it doesn’t seem like it.   Okay let me be honest here. Writing has not been coming easily. in fact, I haven’t written anything fictional besides the (very very) occasional flash fiction. it’s been hard. I don’t know why I haven’t been able to write. I thought I had gotten over my burnout, but I guess I didn’t. I’m still struggling with it. I’ve been writing more, though. I’m writing a story in a notebook for the first time in a long time,…

    *all images mine* So I’ve been searching and searching for a Beach Boys record, because I LOVE the Beach Boys, and I finally found one and have been listening to it dozens of times. It’s really scratched up but I don’t mind. It’s called “All Summer Long” and is making me crave summer. IT’S SO CLOSE (yet so far away :P). Also there’s this epic track on there with their recording mess-ups and goofing off – it’s just plain funny! I just listen to it and crack up… Maybe I’ll record it for y’all so you can hear it. BUT ANYYYWAY. The whole Beach Boys record thing has put me…

    Journaling no. 2

    Oh hi! It’s your friendly neighborhood Zane who has been very busy but still manages to have her nose buried in a book 90% of the time*. Maybe this isn’t a proper post, but I thought perhaps some of you might like to see some pictures of my recent journaling adventures… not that I’ve had much time to devote to it, hehe.   *It’s getting late and when it’s late I start acting weird. Sorry dears. (But really I have been getting a ridiculous amount of reading done. Mostly because I’m Neglecting Other Things and usually regret it later. Oh well.)   So here we go. Photo dump. Enjoy!  …

    2018: QUARTERLY RECAP #1

    Last year when I started blogging, I hated doing monthly recaps, but I did them because everyone else did them*.Toward the middle of the year I decided, what’s the point? If I hated it, why do it? *um… NOT A GOOD REASON. So at the beginning of 2018, I decided I’d do quarterly recaps, one every three months. And I would do them ANY WAY I LIKED. So, if you’re not too terrified, here’s my quarterly recap. LET US PROCEED.     BOOKS (JANUARY – MARCH)   The Blue Castle This is a truly beautiful book that I adored. I already reread it and forced it on my best friend…

    Birthdays, updates, and where has the time gone?

    1. My brother’s birthday was yesterday. He’s fourteen.   He told me I should write a blog post about how awesome he is, teasing me. so guess what? I am.* Kind of, at least. ; )   *90% of this is because it’s been a crazy few days and I don’t know what to post about. So why not post a random post full of nonsense? Maybe you’ll like it. I don’t know.   Birthdays have been quite prevalent this week. My brother’s party last Sunday, singing happy birthday to my brother and one of our friends in youth group on Wednesday, bringing balloons and leftover cupcakes to our co-op…
