Juggling University and Blogging: How Not to Have a Guilt-Induced Breakdown (SW #35)

Balancing Blogging and University  Life 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Juggling University and Blogging: How Not to Have a Guilt-Induced Breakdown (SW #35)

Heyo Bookaholics! Real talk now. Side-note (get it, the note is on the other side of the screen (okay, I’m sorry)): Everything I speak about here is from my personal point of view/ experience and all remedies for this are what I personally find that works for me during these times. I also do not get paid to release content as most bloggers, I do so purely for creativity and expression. More often than not, when I do not post […]

Finding your Purpose in Life 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Finding Your Purpose In Any Situation! (SW#32)

 Heyo Bookaholics! Something’s been bugging me! I haven’t written a post for a while. Well nothing substantial, nothing that would make me say; “This blog has a purpose.” I guess I’m still trying to find my purpose for Jasper + Spice. Trying to understand why people read blogs, why I read blogs. what can I deliver that people want to read? Well, that’s the big question I guess. What can I contribute to the community? This whole post can be […]

Superstitions – Poem (SW#27)

superstitions 27 blog header - Superstitions - Poem (SW#27)

Heyo Bookaholics! I needed to get this off of my chest! It’s true, all of it. I have so many necklaces. I never used to care much about which one I wore, they all mean something to me anyway. The ones my boyfriend bought me, or the few I received on my various birthdays and that thing I bought online too; all tying to memories, like a ball on a string I can use to pull the memories up. I […]

How Have My Reading Habits Changed Since I Started On Bookstagram?

Heyo Bookaholics! Happy Australia Day! My first posts of my Bookstagram: Prior to these, my little ol’ Instagram was nothing more than a confused lifestyle blog. I finally decided to change to a Bookstagram after following a few accounts and realising that the content I really wanted to blog about was books and not cafés and being outside! Over the 4-ish years that I have been on the Bookstagram, I have experienced pressure to post, the sadness of not having […]

Taking Mental Health Days + Late Night Creativity!

Heyo Bookaholics! Some Food For Thought! So not sure if you’ve noticed yet, but from January 1st 2019, my posting has been a bit funny. Posts are going live around 12:00 to 1:00 AM with the intention of it being related to the following day; with this one being no different. For people in other time-zones, this may not be an issue to any of you; and thank goodness I live in Australia, but I’ve noticed it and wanted to […]

Planned Conversations (SW#18) : Therapy

planned conversations 18 blog header 1 - Planned Conversations (SW#18) : Therapy

Heyo Bookaholics! Some things cannot stay in my head… Therapy “So I’ve decided not to take the medication.” My therapist and I had just settled into our respective seats facing each other when I broke the news – if it is even ‘news’ at all. I’d been thinking on her proposal for two weeks now, but deep down I knew, I really knew that medication isn’t the right thing for me. “Why? I think you should consider it.” She replied, […]

I Wasn’t Home Alone… (Short Story)

home alone 3 blog header 1 - I Wasn't Home Alone... (Short Story)

Heyo Bookaholics! Unlike the last two StoryTimes, this story is not a true experience rather something that had sprouted from my wild imagination when I was actually home alone. This post is mostly inspired by YouTube storytellers such as LoeyLane and Hailey Reese who, with their stories are slowly eradicating my fear of the dark and the creatures within it, one story at a time. Their stories have given me the courage to write this story for you all today (even […]

Dissociation (Short Story)

Heyo Bookaholics! It only happens for a brief moment, but I feel as if I’ve opened my eyes into a virtual reality. Everything is as I remember it and my day hasn’t seemed to change in the slightest; but it is as if I am looking through the eyes of another. Then I’m back. The tingles up my back and arms lets me know that I’m in my own body again. Back looking through my own eyes, nothing seems amiss, though […]
