Life is always
Never truly finished
Always something more to do
Waiting for something to happen
My work is ongoing
And I will never reach the end
I am buried in all this never ending work
It only grows
It will cover me up
Until I no longer see the light of truth
And I will be buried in my own sweat
My own tears
My own blood
Buried by my own hand
I’m going to have to get used to my new age haha. I always seem to get it down right before the next one comes along! I’m super excited for the year to come, blogging-wise as well as everything else! 🙂 Anyhoo, I figured I’d just do a quick little tag!
Thanks so much to Dimple @ Enthralling Dimple for tagging us! This was her first ever book tag, so check it out! She gave credit to all the creators, but ain’t nobody got time for that, so click on her links if you’d like to know where this all started. 🙂
For this tag, you have to relate your five most used emojis or five recently used emojis to books!
Quite a while ago, Shannon @ Typically Shannon and I talked about her doing a guest post for my blog.

And I, for one, cannot wait to read this book! Aaaaaaand over to Shannon:
Only a few days ago, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. With policies against same-sex marriage, plans to get rid of the Gender Equality Act that allows transgender people to use the bathroom they feel they identify most with, and a Vice President that supports conversion therapy, the LGBTQIAP+ community are severely under threat, their sexualities and genders being made out to be unnatural. With thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of people protesting day and night against Trump and his horrific ways, it is important that we too focus on the positive and beautiful aspects of the LGBT+ community, and help amplify their voices in such a tough and negative time. As this is a book blog, I decided to look into one of my favourite books that has an LGBT+ couple, Solitaire by Alice Oseman. Continue reading
