Blogging For One Year!

1-year-anniversary

One year. I’ve had this blog for one year. That’s crazy! It does not feel like one year.

So many amazing things have happened and I’m hoping there are many more amazing things to come. I have a lot of plans for this blog in the upcoming year and a few changes I want to try out.

First, I’m going to be buying my domain name. The plan was for me to buy it this morning and then by the time this post went up it would be the first post with my official domain name. However, as I was going through the process of buying it there were some extra fees and some more info that I hadn’t been aware of before.

It’s actually pretty stressful, but I’m trying not to concentrate on it too much and just enjoy the fact that I’ve been blogging for one year! So, buying my domain will definitely be happening (hopefully today!), just not quite when I was hoping it to.

Another change that will be made is to my Thursday posts. Previously, Thursdays meant I would be posting a Poem of the Week. However, this just wasn’t exciting to me. With everything else, I get excited when I post, but it wasn’t the same for weekly poems.

I am not eliminating it entirely though! Instead, I will be posting a Poem of the Month on the first Thursday of every month. Thursdays will become my random monthly post day. Starting in August, Thursdays will include: Poem of the Month, Top Ten Lists, Featured Authors, and things like that. I’m hoping to make each of these a monthly thing.

Another possible change that might be coming at some point is the possibility of me incorporating Youtube into this. I’ve wanted to make Youtube videos for ages and while it probably won’t be happening any time soon, I wanted to get your opinions on this.

So, I think that’s all the changes that will be made. Everything else will be staying the same as I’ve been enjoying and I think you have too (at least I hope so)!

Thank you so much for an amazing year! I have 213 followers on this blog which is 213 more than I was ever expecting so thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I hope you’ll stick with me for this next year that will hopefully be even better than this first one!

Book Haul!

I’ve never done a book haul before, but I watch them a lot on Youtube and as I’ve bought quite a few books recently I decided I wanted to share with all of you what they were! I have no idea if I’m doing this right, but here it goes!

Book Haul 1

  1. Marley & Me, John Grogan

I got this one at a charity garage sale for $1 and am both excited and terrified to start reading. As I’ve seen the movie I know what happens and I am definitely not prepared for that ending. This will definitely be one of those books that I can only read at home for fear of embarrassing myself in public.

  1. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey

I read this in eleventh grade and have been waiting for an opportunity to buy it. Then, two days ago, I found it in a half-price book shop for $3 and there was no way I was going to walk away from that. I’m so excited to read this one again without having to use over 120 sticky notes to take notes.

  1. Oliver Twist, Charles Dickens

Again, something I’ve been wanting to read for ages. I actually thought I owned this at one point, but then realized I had Great Expectations, not Oliver Twist. I’m not really sure how I mixed the two up. I found this at the same store as Cuckoo’s Nest for $4.

  1. Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief, Rick Riordan

$3 for a book that I’ve both been wanting to read for ages and that I’ve been told over and over again that I need to read. I read the first six chapters in less than half an hour and so far I’m really enjoying it and am glad I finally bought it.

  1. The Golden Compass, Philip Pullman

Another $3 find that, just like The Lightening Thief, I’ve been wanting to read and have been told to read. Super excited to read it and see how amazing the book is and how it compares to the film as I’ve heard they’re very different.

  1. Prose Edda, Snorri Sturluson

I don’t remember where I got this one or how much it cost. I’m pretty certain it was on Amazon cause I remember it coming in the mail and it probably wasn’t more than $15 cause that’s all I can afford to spend on one book right now. I’m a huge fan of Norse Mythology so it was very exciting when I finally bought this.

  1. We Bought a Zoo, Benjamin Mee

$3 at a library book sale. Saw the movie, loved it, excited to read the real story.

  1. The Help, Kathryn Stockett

This book has literally been on my list of books to get for ages and I saw it at the same sale as We Bought a Zoo. Books that cost less than $5 are my favourites and it’s incredibly likely that I won’t walk away from a book that costs that little.

  1. I Am Malala, Malala Yousafzai

This one I bought with a Chapters gift card I got for Christmas, but I was waiting to use it. I ended up buying this during their three days of no shipping and handling fees which are my absolute favourite days on the Chapters website.

  1. Death Note Black Edition One, Tsugumi Ohba

Bought this at the same time as I Am Malala and read it in one sitting. It includes the first and second manga novels of Death Note. Each novel alone is about $12, Black Edition in store is about $16 + tax. Buying it online without having to pay shipping and handling was one of the best book buying times.

  1. The Casual Vacancy, J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling, do I need to say any more? Oh wait, J.K. Rowling for $2 at a garage sale.

  1. Slaughterhouse Five, Kurt Vonnegut

Book Haul 2

This was an incredibly recent edition to my shelves which I actually bought yesterday. It was kind of a spur of the moment decision considering two days ago, after buying four of the books on this list at a half-price books shop, I promised myself I wasn’t going to buy anymore of anything for a while. But then I had a really good day and I’ve been wanting to read this forever so I just said forget it, let’s do this, and I bought it. $10 at Chapters and I haven’t put it down since.

There we go! My first book haul! No idea if this is how they’re usually done, but I really enjoyed this. Let me know if you’d like to see more of these!

So Much Time, Yet Nothing Gets Done

Have you ever had it where you have so much time to do things, but you have so much to do that you just don’t know where to start? Yes? Okay good, I’m not alone.

I used to be on top of everything I was doing and I felt so great about it. Then one day I fell behind on a couple things and now it’s like battling against the current to catch up.

I’ll finally finish something that needs to be done and suddenly there’s five more things. I’ve got reviews for blog posts I’m behind on, reviews that needed to be written yesterday and aren’t done yet, fanfiction that I’m constantly late posting and it’s like the further I fall behind, the less I want to catch up, you know?

It’s like, now there’s such an overwhelming amount of work that I just sit here and stare at the pile and at my to-do list and I just have no idea where to start in getting through it all.

I know that when I do catch up on everything and get ahead of the game it’s going to feel great. I’ll be able to relax and breathe a bit easier.

It’s just reaching that point that I’m struggling with right now.

Honestly, the thing I always think of is Jurassic Park. It’s like, I finally start getting work done and then “life finds a way” to send in something else that needs to be done first.

Do any of you have times like this? How do you beat it?

Camp NaNoWriMo Week One!

Camp NaNoWriMoIt’s the end of Camp NaNoWriMo week one and I have done so much of nothing! Literally nothing… Well, that’s not entirely true. I opened the document. Does that count as working? Can I give myself a sticker?

Honestly, if this were regular NaNo in November I’d probably be freaking out by now. However, for Camp NaNo I’m not writing a brand new 50,000 word novel. What I’m doing is trying to finish my rewrite of BYB. So, I’m not freaking out about not having anything done, I’m more frustrated at the fact that I haven’t got anything done.

Now that’s not to say I haven’t been writing. I’ve been working a lot (and I mean, a lot) on blog posts and fanfiction and stuff for Buzzfeed and other things that need doing. However, on top of those things, I will be spending the next three weeks working on finally getting my rewrite done.

How are all of you doing on Camp NaNo so far?


 

Also, in non-Camp NaNo news, I changed my second blog! It was jcarsonrants and it is now jcarsonreviews because I discovered I much prefer reviewing episodes of things I watch as opposed to what the blog was originally going to be for
Also, I’m on Buzzfeed now. I think I might have mentioned this before or I linked to a post on Buzzfeed or something, I don’t know. But yes, various forms of social media have officially taken over my life and I apologize if I have mentioned this before, but I’m really excited. Some of the stuff I’m posting there will be on this blog as well, but a lot of it will only be posted there. So if you want to check that out I’ve put the link below.

Good luck to everyone on their second week of Camp NaNo and on anything else you’re doing this month!

Happy Easter!

Or, if you don’t celebrate Easter, happy Sunday!

Camp NaNoWriMo Day One & April Updates

Camp NaNoWriMoIt is day one of Camp NaNoWriMo! How many of you are doing Camp NaNo this month?

Camp NaNo is basically the same thing as NaNoWriMo in November, except that the goal isn’t to write a brand new, 50,000 word novel. The goal is to set your own word goal and work on whatever project you want.

I will be taking this month to work on finally finishing my redraft of Brave Young Boys which has been getting pushed to the back burner a lot lately. So this month Brave Young Boys is my main focus and it won’t be getting pushed anywhere except hopefully into a willing publishers hands.

And this brings me to my April Updates. I won’t be posting a book review today or on the fifteenth.

I spent majority of March working to get everything done that I needed to before April first arrived and for the most part I got everything done. The two days I would normally be posting book reviews on are my two busiest days of the month so I won’t be doing those, but everything else will be going ahead as planned and book reviews will return in May!

Good luck to my fellow Camp NaNoWriMo participants! What projects are you working on?

Happy April!

The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge!

Rory Gilmore
If you didn’t know, I happen to be a big fan of books. I am also a big fan of Gilmore Girls. Therefore I tend to identify pretty closely in some aspects (usually the ones involving books, not the ones about dating a rich boy and living in a small town that has a festival for everything) with Rory Gilmore.

The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge isn’t so much a challenge as it is a list of all books mentioned in the show. Now, I haven’t actually read too many books on this list. I definitely own a bunch that are on this list, but haven’t read them yet. However, I’m sure that one day I’ll finally finish this list, or at least come close to finishing.

Also, sorry it took me so long to get this posted. My dog decided to sleep on top of me this morning and I didn’t have the heart to tell her to get off. When I finally did get around to posting this it was just one formatting error after another. So hopefully it’ll have worked by now and you can blame the lateness of the post on this thing:
