the folklore book tag // i love being incoherent

can you believe taylor swift single handedly saved 2020 by just casually turning up and dropping an entire album? the sheer suddenness of that move, the unexpectedness of the move, the unpredictability of the move i certainly did not go to sleep at 6 am and woke up at 9 am again to listen to… Continue reading the folklore book tag // i love being incoherent

a bunch of mixtapes

so this gal has her board exams starting from literally tomorrow (~send help~) and that's why i'm obviously shoving more playlists down your throats. i'm sorry. lol. the past few weeks have been so exhausting and music was literally one of the only things getting rid of my stress so i made a bunch of… Continue reading a bunch of mixtapes

sleeping at last // 8.12.18

[for more than a month now, exams and school have taken over my life. it's been really, really rough and i can't wait to breathe in peace again once they're over. i haven't had time to blog or read- which just adds to the overall stress. however, music has seen me through multiple mental breakdowns… Continue reading sleeping at last // 8.12.18

my obsession with documentation, i guess

time running out scares me.  ironic, because i'm really intensely good at procrastinating- or maybe because of it? i don't know.  growing up makes me feel like i'm running out of time- which i am, but not in a "lol i'm going to die soon" way, more in a... "i'm only seventeen once and that's… Continue reading my obsession with documentation, i guess

That Month Of Stories // October Wrap Up

How are there just two (2) months left of 2018? What the frick @ Universe. October was a... month. Honestly, it was a long month but also I don't remember half of it because I was drowning in an actual whirlwind of forced productivity (that is a complete lie, I still didn't get much done… Continue reading That Month Of Stories // October Wrap Up

I Danced Alone In My Room // a playlist

One day, my blog titles will not be an accurate representation of my sad life. Today is clearly not that day so let's move on. Long story short, I had a rough day. You know, the kind where you spend the better half of the day stressing out and preparing for an exam but then… Continue reading I Danced Alone In My Room // a playlist

Book Playlist: I’m Fine | The Foxhole Court

Unlike my other book playlists, instead of dedicating a mix to an entire book, this one is actually just for my son, Neil Josten (he deservED BETTER @ Nora Sakavic). Ahem. Anyway. At this point, y'all have my explicit permission to roll your eyes and pray for/curse me for mentioning The Foxhole Court yet again… Continue reading Book Playlist: I’m Fine | The Foxhole Court

whimsical ramblings // music, books, moodboards

It's been a while since I did a rambling, chatty kind of a post and I'm in the mood for one so here we go. Imagine me burrowed in blankets in a dark room with a mug of hot coffee as it's lightly drizzling outside while I'm writing this- because that's literally what I'm doing… Continue reading whimsical ramblings // music, books, moodboards

Book Playlist: MELANCHOLY | Lord Of Shadows

If you've read Lord Of Shadows by our Queen Cassandra Clare, you'd know why this is going to be such an... emotionally stimulating playlist. Seriously, that book drained me of all emotions the night I finished it but I still find myself occasionally shedding a tear or two because #feelings. Melancholy is what I mostly… Continue reading Book Playlist: MELANCHOLY | Lord Of Shadows

Book Playlist: MADNESS | The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer

  Even though books and music are two very different spectrums for me, I occasionally come across a song whose lyrics, melody or just the music reminds me of a book, a character or a plot. So, I've decided to introduce a new segment to wordhaven- Book Playlist, where every week or so, I'll create… Continue reading Book Playlist: MADNESS | The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer
