Sectional Saturdays: #6 Blogging, sleepy, I shaved my head?! [6/20/15]

It’s been a little while since I posted one of these! I thought it would be fun to give you all a nice little update! 😀

So, if you may not have noticed… I have been blogging…


A lot.

I have been trying to play catch up with a lot of reviews, and have a few things in the works for the next few months. So keep an eye out for that!

Also, on my twitter…



I have an extra copy of A Court of Thorns and Rose by Sarah J Maas that I would love to give a good home! Please, I do ask one thing: If you already have a copy, unless you plan on giving it to a friend… Don’t enter. I want this to go to someone who doesn’t already have it and really wants to get it. I know that sounds mean… but I know how it feels. I am sure all of us do.

Now, for the sleepy thing…


I have had the weirdest sleep schedule. I have been getting up at 4am and going to bed at 12-1am. I am not getting much sleep, which results in a lot of:


I honestly do not know why this is happening. It might be the humidity getting to me at night. It might be the fact I am depressed. I have no clue. The moment I can get to a doctor of some sort, I am going to ask, because I have NO energy during the day. I don’t even want to read somedays. I just feel so horrible.

It’s been slowing down a bit, but still. =/

So, now for what you may have been waiting for.

Yes. I shaved my head.




And it’s only the back, under my hair.

It was getting to be a hassle, I have extremely thick hair. To the point I sweat like a shetland sheepdog during the summer, and I wasn’t having it. I refuse to sweat so bad that I make the cows come home.

It’s not even that far shaved down. It’s like, still a little under an inch long. But, for the summer I plan on trying to keep it that length. See if it helps. Besides, a new hairdo isn’t so bad.

Anyways, I think it is time to jet for me, those naps I mentioned before? Calling my name.


Until next time.

So, haaaaaaaaave you met my friend, Thomas?

So, normally I do not do shout outs, but holy spamoni this man deserves it.


Meet Thomas. Thomas is the man behind SFReviews, but if you are from BookTube, you probably know him as SFF180; or the guy who does review on SCIFI and Fantasy with the adorabe cat mascot.

This man has been blogging for 14 years! (18, if you count his prepping years!) Because of him, I found new, and exciting books to read. While most of the reviews I follow are for Young Adult, he is more of a wide varity.

Because of him, I have found authors I would have probably never found on my own, like Eliszbeth Bear, Andy Weir, and make me dig deeper into this mysterious man called Scalzi.

His reviews can be short and sweet to lengthy and detailed. He is one of my top go to’s every week, and never dissapoints. I always find something interesting to look up, thanks to him.

Not only is he a good reviewer, he has charisma! Something that some reviewers tend to lack, I know I do at times haha. He is funny, witty and very much takes pride into what he does.

He is also one stellar of a friend!

If he was a book, and this was a review, I would have to give SFF180/ by Thomas M. Wagner an honest 5/5, would recommend to anyone.

He is having a giveaway right now!

I wish you all luck, and early congrats to you, Thomas!
