Reading habits tag

Hi everyone, just me again, with another tag! Anna did this tag a bit back and I really wanted to do it too! Check out her post and I hope you enjoy my answers!


Bookmarks or a random piece of paper

It’s usually a pen because I like to underline so I just stick it in the book when I’ done

Stop reading randomly or stop after a chapter/certain amount of pages

I hate stopping mid-chapter, however, some have those like pauses in chapters and I sometimes will stop there if I’m falling asleep or have to leave

Certain place at home for reading?

My bed, however, my position always changes because THERE IS NO READING POSITION THAT IS COMFORTABLE FOR LONGER THAN 5 MINUTES

Eat or drink while reading?

Neither

Music or TV while reading?

Absolute silence usually but sometimes a bit of jazz music, depending on what I’m reading

One book at a time or several?

1 omg or else I get plots mixed up

Reading at home or everywhere?

Home usually but I can read on planes and busses

Reading out loud or silently?

Silently… sometimes I read aloud when I’m really tired or when there are no quotation marks… I’ll make different voices for each character so I know what the hell is going on

Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?

ABSOLUTELY NOT

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

Breaking the spine tbh. Everyone gets angry about it but it’s my book so get off my ass

Do you write in your books?

I like to underline quotes and circle words I don’t know so yeah


There weren’t any rules for this so if you want to take a swing at this tag, be my guest, if not, that’s cool too!

Until tomorrow

Blogger Recognition Award

Good afternoon everyone, I am officially all settled back into my dorm, with updated planners, calendars, and clothes put away. I am now just relaxing despite all of the reunions occurring outside of my room (after 7 hours of driving I need a break and a nap) so I figured I would do this blog award I was nominated for a few days back.


First of all, thanks so much to Alys for nominating me. I highly recommend checking out her blog, it’s one of my faves!!!!

Rules:

  1. Show your gratitude to the person who nominated you and provide a link back to the person’s blog.
  2. Give a brief story of your blog.
  3. Share two or more pieces of advice for beginner bloggers.
  4. Choose 10 other bloggers to nominate.
  5. Comment on each blog by letting them know they’ve been nominated and provide a link to your award post.

Story of my blog:

I have been blogging since I was 14. I stumbled upon someone’s summer bucket list blog and I decided that I wanted to make one as well. So, that summer and the summer after, my friend Molly and I made a summer bucket list blog. We are no longer friends, however, I wanted to continue blogging so I have made a few blogs over my lifetime to continue blogging, mainly just random writings and a bit of food tracking. However, in October of 2015, I decided that I wanted to document my time in college  (I also had no friends so I wanted to make some virtual ones 🙂 )so that’s how I started this blog.

Advice:

  1. Write about what you want- This one may seem pretty self-explanatory, however, it may not be. With so many lifestyle blogs about fashion and the latest hair hack, you may seem pressured to post about these. Yes, it may get you some traffic but if you don’t necessarily like what you’re posting… why blog? I will post a review here and there because I want to and I think other people might want to see it. I post things for me because I like them, not to get a certain amount of views in a day and I recommend you all do the same.
  2. Don’t stress- I’m all about trying to be consistent, it’s what readers like and it gets views. However, if I’m sick or had a long day or was out with friends, I’m not going to worry about my blog. Blogging can wait, your life can’t. I blog during downtime, on plane rides, in bed, etc. I make sure I love my life how I want to and make sure that blogging comes second. Make sure you do that as well.

I nominate:

Happy Mentality          Lu          Shannon          Sam          Anjana

Kaitlyn          Nicole            Ashley          Jamie          Courtney
