Courage & Not Reading {Confessions}

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Mid-week scramble. I've got a bagillion-and-one things to do and about -10 hours to do it in. But I also haven't shown my face on this blog in a few days. Unacceptable. With that, I'll confess a few things because why not?

++ I legit rolled out of my bed yesterday. Leg day will do it to ya.

++ I am certifiably obsessed with The 100. It's a CW show about kids from space that get dropped to the ground to see if Earth is inhabitable. Basically, it's Lost with teenagers. And it's addicting. I've watched all of Season 1 and damn near half of Season 2 in the past 4 days. Send help soon...

++ There are a few projects I've been working on that are quite scary. And it's really strange to admit that fact - that I'm a little scared, because I'm normally not afraid of much. This quote has been the mantra for weeks now.

++ Above-mentioned projects would be why I've been kinda absent on this blog. It's been consuming almost every free moment, but that's okay for now.

++ I haven't finished a book in 3 weeks, which feels really weird when I read like crazy for the first two months of 2015.

++ After finally reading Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky, I saw the movie. I cried pretty much the whole way through. It was beautiful. Just beautiful. Instant favorite. And now I love Emma Watson even more.

++ Speaking of book-to-movie adaptations, I'm really excited for Insurgent to premiere this weekend, despite the fact that I totally don't recognize it from the trailer. And weirdly enough, what's bothering me most is that Tris' hair is too short. LOL priorities.

++ But what's most exciting about Friday is that Skylights Magazine is launching!! I'm excited and nervous and freaking out all at once, and I'm not sure whether I wish it were here already or that I had more time. Regardless, you can sign up for a one time notification of the launch right here! >> WWW.SKYLIGHTSMAGAZINE.COM!


In my quest to figure out my internet stuffs (my brand if you will), I've kind of missed confessing my little heart out. Perhaps, confession posts are here to stay, at least occasionally. Hmm...

*Note: I should be tuning back into the blog world very shortly and of course, reading posts and joining conversations again. Special thanks to all of you who keep checking my blog even though I've had like zero time to reciprocate the love. You the real MVP <3


  1. have you read the book for that TV show? i haven't, but i've seen it.
    you need to finish a book! bad Kari! just kidding. I think I didn't read much at the start, so I am scrambling to catch up. I am not reading the book club book this month because I couldn't get it for free / cheap and I am on a book buying ban right now lol.
    I haven't read perks of being a wallflower or seen the movie, i want to read the book first (duh) and you've made me really want to read it now!
    hope everything is ok with all the projects and whatnot! and yay leg day, i haven't forgotten about your beast mode journey! i have forgotten about my own though, and i've gained like 10lbs zero exaggeration. help?

  2. seen the book, not the tv show.

  3. I will definitely check out the Perks of Being a Wallflower. I had no idea it was a book or a good movie. I'm on it. I am going to see Insurgent with Taylor this weekend! We watched Divergent together and she loved it. I am hoping it is appropriate for her since I haven't read the books and am going in blindly. #momoftheyear

  4. We LOVE The 100. It's so good. I'm not so patiently waiting for the next season. I also liked Perks of Being a Wallflower. Such a tear jerker although I'm liable to cry on almost anything.

  5. Leg day will legit leave your legs in a mess. But is it weird that I kinda like the sensation? Prob weird. Thesis probs = I havent finished a book in a hot minute either. Shame. But you're not alone.


Leave me love ❤ If you don't get a response from me, it's probably because you're a no-reply blogger. Fix that!
