Rewind & Review #63


~I suffered from a serious case of ennui.
~My allergies finally kicked in, and it was not fun.
~We visited a new used bookstore. It reminded me of both Books-a-Million and Half Price Books. Their selection wasn't too bad; they had a lot of fandom merchandise and other bookish knick-knacks, too.
~Last weekend, I went to B-Fest events on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. I won the trivia contest on Friday night, so I got a ton of cool stuff, and I finally met Sara Raasch! (And saw Anne Blankman again. :D) (Pictures from Saturday below.)
~I finally started an Instagram just for bookish posts. If you want to follow me, my handle is @awkwordly_emma.
~Some of my biology assignments have been ridiculously unclear. I've taken online college classes before, but this is turning out to be one of the hardest.
