i had loads of fun answering these questions, thank you so much! =D

a post where i ✨ramble✨

i think today’s featured image has too much going on, but i am not deleting those circles, it took me ages to line them all up lol

hi everyone!

it’s thursday, and i still have no idea what this post’ll be about, so today i’m rambling about anything and everything!

my blog name

i’m still procrastinating on when to change it, but i have finally thought of a blog name. i’ll be naming this blog ‘it’s raining books’! i want to focus on writing and more bookish content hopefully lol (there will still be incredibly cringy posts about whatever, too, though).

wips

i currently have 2 wips: a harry potter fanfic, and an element-themed story i’ll probably scrap.

the hp fanfic is something i started about a year ago, then left in an abandoned word document. i’ve discovered it while searching my old laptop, and i found that it wasn’t too cringy, so i took pictures of it and started to rewrite it into a better fanfic. (thinking back, i probably could’ve just emailed it to myself, but that laptop’s really slow hahah). if i write some more, i’ll hopefully post it here so you guys can read it. (:

the element-themed story is something i’ve had in my head for a while, but i can’t think of a good plot, and also how it ends and starts, which i think is pretty important for a good book. if i ever do figure a plot, then i might work on it and also post it here.

my bookshelf

i’ve been planning to re-organise my bookshelf, and give books i don’t want anymore to charity, but because i’m incredibly busy with, uh, watching youtube, i can never find the time to do it! *cough* yeah that’s right you just don’t have enough time *cough*

school

i’ve still got about 3 weeks left before school, but, hear me out, i want to go already! maybe i’m going crazy or something probably but i really want to do homework just so i have something to do iwrjiefherjoiewoqevjckwijwi

when i get back to school, i guarantee you i’ll be complaining about homework and wishing for the summer holidays again lol

well, that’s everything for today, but how are you? how’s life? *runs out of questions to ask* uh, yeah that’s it, bye!

a small announcement 🐱

istgjrhdgkr the microsoft cat emoji is so cutee

hello!

i’ve been waiting to write this post for a while (since february ahahah)

you’ve probably guessed from the title; i have cats!

(i don’t know why i decided to keep this a secret for so long xD)

they’re called poppy and cassie, and we got them on february 14th this year πŸ’•

they’re sisters, and are both 11 months old (about 14 in human years)

withour further ado, i’ll be showing some pictures of them and little things i’ve learnt about them over the past few months!


it’s a little blurry, but this is one of my favourite pictures of poppy xD

this is poppy, she has yellow eyes and dark stripes on her back, which is how we tell her apart from cassie. she’s a cuddly ball of floof that can do a lot of damage if she’s in a playful mood. she gets scared easily and hides if she’s scared. she likes to roll onto her back and get pet on her stomach (she starts purring once pet there lol). she’s pickier than cassie, and falls asleep everywhere.

this is cassie, she’s more outgoing than poppy and has escaped out of the house (they’re indoor cats) a few times lol. she has green eyes and this leopard-y print on her back. she doesn’t get scared as easily as poppy. she meows a lot, and purrs a lot too πŸ˜‚

isruehigsgdbjdk i love my kitties aaaaaaa *melts into a puddle because of cuteness*

i have no other secret pets, i promise. *t-rex appears in the corner* *nervous laugh* definitely

finally i made a new sign-off lol

200 followers?! *whaaaat*

hey everybody!

okay, so all my exams are finished, so i PROMISE i’ll actually post. i love blogging but i’m just kinda figuring things out (:

firstly, like i said at the start, MY EXAMS HAVE FINISHED AGGHHHHHHHH

they weren’t anything really serious, but they were stressful and revision took FOREVER

secondly, i’ve just realised that i have 200 followers?! i have two- no, three questions: 1) HOW?, 2) WHEN? and 3) WHY?

this is crazy!!!!! thank you so, SO much! it really means a lot that you WILLINGLY (i repeat, WILLINGLY) follow my blog because you’re at least slightly interested in what i post. i mean, my posts are like, 95% cringiness! i bet future me is already cringing reading this! edit from future me: i am now

thank you for everything. πŸ’•

why does this sound like i’m leaving πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ (trust me, i’m not ahah)

see you next post! ❀

It’s just grouping things togetherrr and it’s so satisfying and the end result is so prettyyy

I should really organise my bookshelf haha

Listening to podcasts 🎧🎢

I mainly listen to one called Camp Half-Pod, it’s about the Percy Jackson books and it’s the only way homework is somewhat enjoyable.

I know I shouldn’t listen to them when Im doing homework because I’ll lose my focus but it’s just really nice to listen to someone talkinngg ahah

I mainly listen to podcasts when cleaning my room or revising πŸ™ƒ

Notes App ✨

Woo hooo I use this almost everydayyy shoutout to the notes app its the bessssttt πŸ‘

Books πŸ“š

READIINNNGGG IS AMAZINGGGG AGHHHHH

AGGGHHHH WHY ARE BOOKS SO EXPENSIVEE I WANT TO BUY SO MANYYY

Plants πŸͺ΄

I don’t why but I really want a plant for some reason haha

Not a real one, I’d be really bad at taking care of it ahah (any plants reading, BEWARE) But a small, plastic one would be a really cute addition to my room (:


(I love these separators, too 😜)

Okay, that’s all I have for today (because I’m running out of post ideas lol) bye bye everyone!!! *waves even though you cant see me*

1 Year Blogversary!!!!!

Hiiiii everyoneeee and welcome to my 1 year blogversaryyyyyy

is it blogversary or blogisversary?

Im so excitedddd πŸ€©πŸ’•

I can’t believe that I’ve actually been blogging for a year! yo maya remember that time when you abandoned blogging for like six months  shut up maya

I dont actually have a very clear plan of what I’m doing, but I was thinking that I could look back on posts i made and milestones i reached, so lets start ^^

very abrupt lol

~First post~

In the middle of COVID-19, I had a completely random idea to start a harry potter blog, and literally the second I created a blog on WordPress, I started typing a post called ‘Harry Potter Music to Keep you Studying, Sleeping, Drawing and Relaxing‘, where I talked about a youtube channel called Ambient Worlds and tried to sound sophisticated and like an adult πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

I guess it wasn’t that bad of a post, but compared to THIS post, I think I’ve definitely improved πŸ˜…

~First collab~

I’ve just spent a while reading some of my posts also trying to find a post to stop on and I found my first collab, which was with Maggie. It was really fun, although when Maggie introduced me to Canva, I made some… interesting designs, here’s my first sign off:

It’s… questionable? i hate it

heh

~50 followers~

When I got 50 followers, I decided to make an ‘assumptions about me’ post, and it was really fun to do! I didn’t expect to get so many assumptions!

And now I’ve just been looking at some assumptions I answered, and I read one that said: ‘you dislike star wars’ and I said that I’ve never watched it but i doubt theres any thing better than harry potter COUGH COUGH WELL MAYA I SEE YOU CLEARLY HAVENT READ PERCY JACKSON EIERBKVHERBNKELRB

*gaaasp* I found some wise adviceeeee in my posttt

If in doubt, consult Google.

Maya, 2021

actually you were pottahwand then  STOP INTERUPTINg ME  no

~100 followers//name reveal~

yayyy this was a fun but incredibly cringy postttt

i think thats literally the post summed up

*drops mic*

~*insert a bunch of random posts*~

*fast forward to this post*

Okay, that’s it for now!

See you next week!:)

New sign off, I really like it ^^

Edit: okay so i got a notification from wordpress that today (8th February) is my blogversary so \_(^^)_/
