Long time, no see! Yep, hello, it’s Emily! How are ya?

It’s crazy to pull up my blog and see that my last post was April 23rd, 2018. It’s crazy to look back and think about how much my life has changed, and how much I’ve accomplished since then.

Every now and then I get a recurring sense of guilt for leaving this blog in a state of uncertainty and mysterious disappearance. I’ve been missing blogging and reading more now than ever, which is why I decided to come back and write this post.

Let’s take it all the way back to Spring of 2018.

As you may know, I am a graphic design student at RISD, with an incredibly taxing workload. In Spring of 2018, I was still a Sophomore, but I was also a Sophomore on the incredibly stressful internship hunt. Every ounce of my being went into my design work, perfecting it and trying to develop a style and direction for my making. Of course, this meant books and blogging (what I considered to be my hobbies) had to take a backseat.

Exciting Life News!

Hi guys! I’ve been a bit absent again. Life’s been pretty crazy getting ready for Christmas, finishing up projects for school, and reading for my AP Lit class. If you were wondering we’re finishing up Tess of the d’Urbervilles before Christmas break. BUT, amidst all that craziness was the magical day of December 10th, 2015. Why so magical, you ask? Well, that was the day that I got my first (and what will be my only) college acceptance letter! I am so, SO, SOOO happy to say that I’ll be attending my dream school next fall!! It’s that kind of famous art school located in Rhode Island…

I was a nervous wreck leading up to finding out, and needless to say I was crying hysterically while reading the email aloud to my parents. I am extremely proud of myself for being accepted. I worked my bum off and I think that could show in my application and portfolio.

So now I’m celebrating and planning to spend my break relaxing with lots of books! I’ve got a bunch of review copies that have piled up — some pretty exciting ones! Keep an eye out on my Goodreads for sneaks at my thoughts on those.

Talk to you guys very soon!
