A New (Twitch) Venture

Hey guys! Apologies for dropping off the face of the earth for a while there. I haven’t really known what to write about. BUT I’m excited to give this quick update, before I soon get back into my book blogging, etc. I’ve got a new thing I’m doing and I’m loving it and excited about it, and if you could help me out with it and help me to grow then I’d really appreciate it.

Anyway! I recently(ish) started live streaming. Mainly on Twitch. And as my mental health and social interaction have been pretty poor, it’s really been helping me. I love doing it. It makes me happy, it allows me to interact with others, and it’s something I’ve been really passionate about since I started. I’d love to write some more about it, so I’m hoping to soon!

Before that, if you’d like to check out my channel then you can click here to see my stuff! It would mean the world to me if you did so, before I get back into this blog again a bit more. You can also click the Twitch icon in the sidebar. Yes, I know, I know. Shameless self-promotion. But I’ve been loving doing this so I just thought that I’d shout about it for a while.

Thanks guys for all your support!

Theatre Thursdays: My Heart Loves the View, But My Head Doesn’t; or, Girls in the High School Musical Franchise

Lady Geek Girl and Friends

high school musicalHigh School Musical has long been one of my favorite Disney franchises, mostly because I love a good high school AU, and High School Musical is the most high school you could possibly pack into a single set of movies. There’s just something about its over-the-top clichés that really speaks to me. Unfortunately, one of these clichés is its terrible development of its female characters.

Spoilers for all three movies after the jump.

Return of the Reading Slump

Everyone who loves reading is bound to have a reading slump every now and again, but sadly I seem to be rather prone to them. And since my health went and shat itself it’s even harder for me to read, so to be honest when I have a reading slump I’m less than surprised. 

And lo and behold, the reading slump has returned! 

If you follow me on Goodreads (link in the sidebar, nudge nudge) you may have noticed that my reading progress has basically frozen. And I’m really annoyed about it, because I was working really hard on reading more and I have a bunch of stuff that I have to read for uni. It’s … well, I’m not happy about it.

Last year, my health was so bad that I read about half of a book, and skimmed the rest of it. That’s why I put so much effort into reading more this year. Even reading one book is a victory, because I really do love reading, so I know that I shouldn’t beat myself up too much for having a reading slump. But I can’t of can’t help it.

But! It’s normal, right? I’ll get over it. And when I do I’ll get back to reviewing the books that I read on this here blog. Until that happens, I’ll probably be on Twitter (again, link in the sidebar, nudge nudge) complaining about not being able to read anything. Hope to be back soon! Love you guys. 

But seriously, if you have any advice for getting through a reading slump then I’m all ears for real. x
