other obsessions


life updates

This was a pretty chill week. I’m finding my balance on social media again after spending too much time on twitter the first few days I was back, and I’m finally getting back into the swing of reading a little bit more. Right now I’m trying to knock out all of those new graphic novel eARCs I listed above, and then I think I’m going to try as hard as I can to finish most of my current reads before starting ANYTHING new. I’m just trying to keep myself off of video games long enough to do it!

3 good things I can focus on today:

  1. September is the beginning of my favorite time of year!
  2. I made a knock-off pumpkin spice latte and it tastes almost just like the real thing, which is amazing for me since I can’t go out and buy one!
  3. I gave myself a DIY acrylic manicure last night and it turned out pretty well for only my second attempt. ?

Feel free to focus on the good stuff with me in the comments! What are 3 good things (or even 1 thing) you can focus on today?

More about Destiny @ Howling Libraries

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. I never understand how you can manage so many current reads haha!
      I hope you have a great week!


    1. Autumn is my fave season, I wish it would be Autumn all the time!!

      3 good things to focus on….hmmm…I have this week off work, my son starts school on Wednesday which he totally needs (but I am more than a little worried!) and I plan to actually do some baking this week! Since we have both gone gluten free I want to try some gf baking!

    1. I read the first volume of The Way of The Househusband this weekend, and I’m thinking of continuing on! I just recently discovered the kind of manga that I enjoy, so I’ve been testing out different series and seeing how I like them!

      My 3 good things for this week are that: 1. I get to see my co-blogger in person in a few days 2. I have a new stash of chocolate to snack on this week 3. I had one of my best birthdays this year where I got to spend it with a few friends and family.

    1. Three good things for this week: Al and I will celebrate our 10-year dating anniversary on Friday (!!), I started reading a really good book last night, and work (still at home for the most part) is going well.

Say hello! ♥
