That’s right, it’s another Blast From the Past edition!! šŸ˜€ This post is a blast from the blast in itself — the first three are over five months old at this point. Those were the days. šŸ˜›

If you haven’t read the first three BFP parts yet, here they are:

Pastries, Coffee, and Improvision

Welp, it’s Friday night. The deadline is approaching fast, and I have nothing to show for it in the morning. So today, I’m going to improvise. I have no clue where this post will take me. It might end up getting philosophical, serious, silly, all of the above. . . who knows.

So where do I start?

That’s the trouble with having no clear plan. . . you don’t know how you’re going to approach it.

Basically… I’m Running Out of Ideas

Looking back on all my previous posts, it’s clear that I have had a lot of fun talking about things and interacting with friends and fellow bloggers. But it’s also clear that. . .

I had no idea what I was doing.

And I still have no idea what I’m doing.

Book Binder Poetry {Dekreel Edition}

I’ve always been a big fan of poetry and beautiful prose in general, and Evelyn’s blog post on what she calls “book binder” poetry is a great example of raw literary aesthetic. I knew immediately that I wanted to follow suit (besides, it looked like SO MUCH FUN.) So I stole drew inspiration from her idea, grabbed a couple armfuls of books from various shelves and tried my hand at composing book binder poetry of my own.

If y’all haven’t read her post on this unique genre of poetry, I highly suggest checking it out. She’s an amazing poet and she did a wonderful job. šŸ™‚

Let’s get started! *rubs paws*

Seven-Questions Book Tag

Today I’m excited to pass on another tag! Unlike the first two book-related tags I did, this one I didn’t snatch without permission. šŸ˜› Thanks, Emma, for nominating me!! Y’all go check out her blog (Seven Billion Smiles); she and her sister do some really awesome stuff there. šŸ˜‰

The rules are pretty straight forward. Thank the tagger, answer the questions, nominate some more peeps and give them new questions, the usual. šŸ™‚

~~Autism~~ How it Works & What it’s Like

Howdy, Hunters! Today I have a topic I’d like to talk about that I thought would be interesting: ASD. I inherited it from my dad, and was diagnosed when I was little. So I’m going to talk about what it’s like being “on the spectrum”, as well as talk through some of the symptoms.

But first, let me educate you a little bit! *throws on cliche schoolteacher outfit and produces a chalkboard from thin air*

~~Vacation Bible School~~ Fun Tales Thereof

After two straight weeks of silence, I think it’s time to resurrect this blog, am I right? I’m so sorry for not posting anything! I’ve been feeling especially anxious and insecure these past few weeks. You’d think the amazing comments in the last article would have cheered me up. . . šŸ˜›

In all seriousness, thank you guys so much for your encouragement and support. Even if I didn’t reply to all of them, I really appreciated it. I’ll try to post more often in the future (it helps that I’m doing Camp NaNo šŸ™‚ ).

~~Making a Difference~~ My Struggles as an Insecure Blogger

Hullo, Hunters! Enjoying summer break so far? I hope so; I’m doing school all summer long. Consider yourself fortunate. šŸ˜‰ (And if you’re doing school over the summer too, I respect that. And you’re not alone. XD )

So today’s post is going to be. . . quite different. Why? Because I’m going to do something courageous and possibly foolish that I might regret later. . . I’m going to be honest and transparent. There’s something going on with me that I feel compelled to share with you. . . not so people pity me or “pet” me, but because. . . I dunno. I like pouring out my heart. Sometimes I think I’m abnormally transparent.

The Versatile Blogger Award

Yayyyyyy, another taaaag. . . I do hope you aren’t tired of me doing tag posts, because they’re pretty much the easiest type of post for me. šŸ˜›

Before I begin. . . what do you guys think of my new website makeover?

I wanted something a bit brighter and more cheerful, and something that would go with the title pictures better. Are the title pictures okay, by the way? Do you like them on my blog?

~~Book Review~~ Harry Potter

*cringes under all the cold glares*

Yes, yes, yes, I am completely aware that I ought to be ashamed of myself for reading the Harry Potter books. And I honestly am a little bit; I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

In any case, they turned out to be pretty review-worthy, so here we are. (Please don’t kill me. . .)

Sorry this post is late, by the way! I was hoping I could get it done on time but. . . life happened. šŸ˜›
