I’m an INFJ; what does that mean?

So a little while ago, I did one of those personality tests, and did a video on it, where I talked a bit about being an INFJ. Now, I thought we’d go into way more detail, and talk about what it all means. It’s fascinating stuff, and scarily accurate!16-personality-types.png

Strengths and Weaknesses

According to this, my main strengths are being “creative, insightful, inspiring, decisive, determined and passionate, and altruistic“. I want to say most of them are pretty accurate; decisive, though? I can’t decide anything, to start with. Once I’ve decided, though, I’m stuck on it, and good luck getting me to change my mind. I really like passionate, I think that’s a good word for me! And altruistic is something I really, really hope I am.  Continue reading “I’m an INFJ; what does that mean?”

30 Days of Readathon (part 2)

So, if you haven’t heard of Dewey’s readathon, you are missing out. Basically, it’s a 24 hour readathon that happens twice a year, and it’s definitely my favourite bookish event! This readathon, on October 21st, marks 10 years of Dewey’s, so to celebrate they’re doing “30 days of readathon” – the idea being a post a day of some sort of bookish favourite. I’m taking that idea and turning it into 3 posts of ten, and here, we have part 2.

Check out part one here 

Dewey's Readathon

20. Best. Like… ever? What a broad topic! You can’t even ask me that, it’s too much, I could never choose a “best.” Continue reading “30 Days of Readathon (part 2)”

To be completely honest, I had really low hopes for this book. The person who bought it for me isn’t a reader, and non-readers are really bad at picking for books for readers. Sorry, but it’s true! The other book she got me was pretty terrible, so I expected this one to be the same. So really, we should be pretty excited this got a three star rating!

Note to Self by Connor Franta

In his New York Times bestselling memoir, A Work in Progress, Connor Franta shared his journey from small-town Midwestern boy to full-fledged Internet sensation. Exploring his past with humor and astounding insight, Connor reminded his fans of why they first fell in love with him on YouTube—and revealed to newcomers how he relates to his millions of dedicated followers.

Now, two years later, Connor is ready to bring to light a side of himself he’s rarely shown on or off camera. In this diary-like look at his life since A Work In Progress, Connor talks about his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety, self-love, and acceptance; his desire to maintain an authentic self in a world that values shares and likes over true connections; his struggles with love and loss; and his renewed efforts to be in the moment—with others and himself.

Told through short essays, letters to his past and future selves, poetry, and original photography, Note to Self is a raw, in-the-moment look at the fascinating interior life of a young creator turning inward in order to move forward.

 

First thing; I wasn’t the biggest fan of A Work in Progress. I enjoyed it, a lot, but I didn’t get the insight into Connor that I was expecting. So when I heard about this book, supposedly filling in all the gaps that were missed in his first book, I was ready. And yes, it lived up to expectations!

My Latest Obsession: Heathers, the Musical

Have you heard of Heathers, the off-Broadway musical? If you haven’t, the plot of it is pretty hard to explain. It starts off very Mean Girls-esque, starring the three goddesses Heather, Heather, and Heather, with Veronica trying to become part of the group. Then, Cute Boy J.D. comes along, and… well, I don’t want to spoil it for you, but he certainly changes the feel of it. My friend Elly introduced me to it, and I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since.  Continue reading “My Latest Obsession: Heathers, the Musical”

You’d think it’d be over by now, but here we are (the week from hell pt4)

Check out part 2 and part 3 for the rest of the story up to this point (it won’t make sense on it’s own, sorry). 

As per always, I’d rather you didn’t read this if you know/are any of the people involved in this. I can’t stop you, obviously, but don’t get mad at me for what I’ve written, I’ve given you fair warning. 

So, there we are, trying our best to be friends. It’s a little strange, but it’s fine. Then, me and Aphrodite go off on break, and Athena and Zeus stay at uni for a little while. I have a good break for oh, maybe a week? Until I get a message from Zeus: “can you stop with this blog shit, it’s really pissing me off.” 

I just… What?

He explained that he’d read my blog – hadn’t asked me, just sat there and read it with Athena. I’ve always been really clear that I don’t want them reading that, ever, but apparently that doesn’t matter. Anyway, his point was “cant you talk to me about shit rather than writing about me,” and a couple of things that I said about him where he basically thought I was going to put all his deepest secrets out for the world to see. Listen, I tell you guys a lot, but I was offended he thought so little of me. He was angry and drunk when he was messaging me, but still, I took the two posts down straight away.
