Watch | Read | Listen {December 2015}

It's the official 4-year anniversary of my blog! Yay! And that's not the only thing I have to celebrate: this past weekend I finished the first draft of my NaNoWriMo novel! I celebrated by reading a lot, eating Thai food, and visiting a local comic book shop. Hooray!

Can December 19th at 11:25am come any faster? That's the time I'm seeing The Force Awakens. I even got a cool new Star Wars shirt to wear to the movie!
