8 Steps for a Better Night's Sleep

IT'S OFFICIALLY EXAM SEASON!!!! Which means "yaay!" bc SCHOOL IS ALMOST OUT but also tears bc NOBODY LIKES EXAMS.


⮙⮙ Current mood, right there. ⮙⮙
Besides preparing well and eating a hearty breakfast on Exam Day™, one of the best exam-related pieces of advice I've ever received is to get plenty of sleep the night before the test. And because REST IS AWESOME and May = the month of AP exams, SATs, and state testing (😱😱😱), I guess you know what I'll be talking about... I'm proud to present: my favorite evening routine for a better night's sleep. 💤

Also, shoutout to Ella Marie @ February Fairy for her evening routine post, which inspired this one! Go check out her blog, Dragons -- IT'S AMAZING! 💟

Now, on to the post... 😉

SOCIAL MEDIA IS SO TEMPTING. Right before bed, at the end of the day, that nagging temptation to just hop on Facebook for a quick moment, or Instagram to see what your best friend…

Beautiful People: The Farewell Edition ft. Radha O'Connor & Keyan Baudin

HELLO MY AWESOME DRAGON-NINJAS 💖💖💖

For the past few years, Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up & Further In have hosted Beautiful People, a monthly series of questions designed to better acquaint authors with their characters. Last Thursday, they announced this April as Beautiful People's final chapter (TEARSSSS 😭😭😭), with the possibility of epilogues in the distant future (PLEASE 😍😍😍).

I'm so sad to see Beautiful People go, but I also totally understand the need to let something go as a result of a busy life. 💝 And there's always the archives, when the need for new questions arises!

Today, I'll be tackling Beautiful People: the Farewell Edition for Radha O'Connor, the MC of When the Sky Cries (a story I REALLY MISS RN 💔... but Camp NaNoWriMo must come first), along with the March 2015 edition for Keyan, the MC of The Scent of the Stars (my Camp NaNo novella). With no further comments, let's dive in!
