Update: Life and Books (Oct 2022)

I cut my hair! (And bought a pirate shirt!) That's my big October news. I also made some art! I bought Rebelle 5 Pro because it was on sale for $20 (normally $150) and mimics traditional media like watercolor and oil paint.

Cinnamon is probably my favorite scent. I just LOVE it. (I also like to eat it, but that's not the point right now.) So for years growing up I begged my mother every holiday season to buy a cinnamon broom, but...
