Update: Life and Books (June 2021) + Late Mermay Art!

Let's see, what did I do in June... I finally watched Cats (2019)! To be honest, I didn't hate it. It was weird, like everyone said, but some of the songs were fun, and I liked the dancing. I loved the Magical Mr. Mistoffelees! Munkustrap was pretty adorable too.

But hey, it's the end of the year! And covers are pretty to look at! And people worked hard to make these! So the more, the merrier, I say.

The Weekly Update: 4/2/17

Good news! The headaches were in fact caused by the granola things I was eating! So I have had a blissfully headache-free week! Well, not entirely since I got a headache from fatigue one day, but that one went away after a night's rest, so close enough. Kristen's life tip of the week: If you start feeling dehydrated despite drinking lots of water and can't figure out why, make sure you're not...
