A Guide: The Wonders of Images


This is my December installment of a series I'm doing to commemorate my third blogoversary!  Every month, I'll take on a topic in which I've learned something about in my three years in the blogoverse.  These all reflect my experiences so there are definitely other resources out there!  This is just what I've found works for me.  A list of linked previous topics are below for your convenience!


In this installment, I'll be talking about images.  They spice up your blog and make everything that much prettier!  But how can you customize (or even make your own) images?  And do you have to cite images you've borrowed from other people?

English Course Mini Review Round Up: Part 1


If you don't know already, I'm in university and I'm doing two programs: Environmental Biology and English Critical Studies.  For my English program, we tend to read quite a bit (naturally) and this semester I was in a course that studied the novel (basically a LOT of structure discussion).  I'll be doing a few round up posts (we read 8 books so I decided to do two books per post for a total of 4 round ups) to recap my thoughts on the novels we read!

Review Wednesday: Artemis by Andy Weir




Standalone to date

Blurb:
"Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first."

Novemeber Wrap-Up


It's that time again!  Honestly, I can't believe how fast this year is flying by.  There's so much I have to do by the end of the year, not to mention the end of the semester (which ends in the middle of December).  But we shall power on!  This month has certainly been interesting in terms of reading.
