A few months ago, A Purpose of Winged Dogs celebrated its Two Year Blogiversary. In my post, I promised to be a better and more consistent blogger. But that was a hard promise to keep. The truth is that I’ve felt stuck recently with this blog. I wanted to post about books and make this a book blog. But I just couldn’t seem to make that transition.
I posted sporadically. I posted about a bunch of random things, just to try it out. From this, I learned that I wanted to blog, but I didn’t want this to be the blog I did it on.
I decided to create a new blog.

Today marks a special day for me and for this blog. My 2 year blogiversary. I’ve officially been blogging for 2 years. 24 months. 730 days.
I know I’m going to sound like every other blogger on their blogiversary, but it’s true.
Blogging has changed my life.

Today while I was on a walk, a little girl asked her mother why I was walking down the street.
“Because she’s going on a walk,” the mom replied.
That got me thinking. Have we really reached the point where young children don’t know the magic of a walk around the block? Of being able to hear your thoughts dance around your head to the beat of your footsteps? Of just being able to enjoy nature and not our devices?
Or is the fact that we are told from a young age that biking is faster than walking and therefore is better? That we are already starting to learn what society instills in us; that faster and newer and better is what’s worth having?

I think it’s safe to say that Avengers: Endgame destroyed everyone who saw it. I also think that it’s safe to say that that was an understatement. Destroyed? More like broke your heart into a thousand small pieces and you are not okay and will never be again.
Whether or not you’ve already seen the movie or are planning to see it, Jo and I have come together to create a little guide for you about what your life will be like after you see Endgame. We’ve determined the eight stages that happen after you see the movie. Because there is a before and an after. This is a survival guide, a tip guide, a here’s what you need to know guide, and a can you relate to this guide.
I’ll be posting Stages 1-4 and Jo will be posting stages 5-8.
We’re trying to keep this as free of spoilers as we can.
So, let’s begin.

Well, that was quite the title. 🙂
Today, I’m popping back in from the hiatus I didn’t quite mean to take to interview the fabulous Jo. Why? Because Jo is starting a brand new blog.
The Lens & the Hard Drive (Jo’s old blog) is one of my favorites. It’s rants and ramblings and fangirling and awesomeness. At the same time, it’s also serious and thought provoking.
Pananaw is its successor. Pananaw is a Tagalog word meaning “insights” or “how one sees things”. This is my stop on her blog tour.
But before we get to the new blog with a gorgeous aesthetic, let’s meet the blogger.

It’s about 8:30 pm on March 31st. Camp NaNoWriMo begins tomorrow. And I can’t wait.
Last April, I participated in my first ever Camp. My project was outlining and structuring “Catch”, the same novel I’m writing draft two of for this Camp. I’m also hoping to begin editing it during Camp since it’s a novel in verse and shorter than most types of novels. My goal is currently 20,000 words. It will be a struggle to even get those down.

Hello, guys! It’s been a while. I’m fully aware that it’s the middle of March (Where has the time gone?), but I figured I should wrap up February anyway. My existence in the blogosphere has basically been 0. My goal for the rest of March is to post at least once a week. 🙂
Right now, there’s just a lot going on. I’m trying to get better at managing my time, but I should be back in full swing on this blog by Summer. Well, now that that’s out the way, let’s wrap up February!

I meant to post this tag on Valentine’s Day. Then, life happened. So, this post is arriving in your reader 3 days late. XD 😉 But, anyways, today I will be doing the Rip It or Ship It tag. I’ve done it once before, about a year and a half ago, and had a great time.
The Rip it or Ship It tag is all about ships! Sticking two characters from different books together and seeing if they’d make a good couple. If they do you ship it, if they don’t you…um…rip it. I wrote down the names of ten female characters and put them in one pile and wrote down the names of ten male ones and put them in another pile.
Each pair was made by randomly selecting one piece of paper from each pile. If I pulled two characters from the same book, I re-picked. I tried to spread the love between popular books and not so popular ones.
This tag always produces some interesting results, so let’s get started!
Oh, and I hope you enjoy a bit of snowy day bookish photography to go along with the post.
This post contains minor spoilers for multiple books.

Happy February, guys! As you can see, I thought it was high time to bring back my monthly recaps. They were always my favorite posts to write, but alas, I haven’t written one since June.
January seemed like a really long month, but at the same time, not really? A lot of things happened, including starting a new year! So, let’s begin recapping it.

It was a cold January day. My winter break had reached its end, and I needed something else to read. I’d been wanting to read on my mom’s Kindle for a while now. So, I picked it up and purchased two books. One, the one I’m reviewing today was A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews.
