Book Review: One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

Second book review I’ve posted here, and I’ve gotta say, I LOVED this book. I mean, I love everything Casey McQuiston’s ever written, but still. Review: What can I even say about this book? It wrecked me, devastated me, and put me back together again. Yes, I’m dramatic, don’t mind it. This book was relatableContinue reading “Book Review: One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston”

Book Review: Aristotle and Dante Dive Into the Waters of the World by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

It’s been a while since I posted, (more in-depth life update to come soon!) but for now I thought I would share a book review I did a little while ago.

I feel like I have a lot to process, but it’s hard to find an answer when you don’t even know the question. Well, first ofContinue reading “Queer Eye My Life”

New Year, Old Goals

Trigger Warning: for discussion of suicidal thoughts, self-harm, and mental health in this post. It’s that time of year again when resolutions are creeping round the corner. I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions because I find that I never stick to them, and then I just end up feeling like a failure – a feelingContinue reading “New Year, Old Goals”

Later

By: Jules Sherwood I need the catharsis of salty waterAnd wracking breathsShaking shoulders But the well behind my eyes is deep,So deep that it aches,And my rope doesn’t reach down far enough So tough luck but I guess you’ll be stuck with these needles in your eyes and knives in your sides until you can sort throughContinue reading “Later”
