Logically, it seems this would be easier since I can’t go out and see people, however I have found it harder. It helps to get my thoughts down in words often so here’s a little chat about how I have changed and adapted my self care routines. Continue reading “How my Self Care Routines have Changed”

I had been so excited when i saw Stay Gold appear in my mail a few months ago. It’s own voice written and about a trangender boy moving school and having to deal with the struggle of choosing to out himself or keep trying to pass with no-one knowing.
Like many bookish tags, i wasn’t tagged in this, i just think it’s really cool and wanted to try it out. The History Of My Bookshelf tag was created by Emmmabooks on YouTube, and it’s all about the history of your shelves, your past reads and how your shelves have developed over the years.
