So excited to get inkskinned’s book in the mail! Honestly one of my favourite writers. Through her, I found so many words I can relate to and other words that inspire me. I’ve read the whole book already and it was great to re-read some of my favourites and re-discover other poems of hers.

blogrates and fancasts

so like I said, I’d do some fun stuff for reaching my first 1k followers. rules are pretty simple:

  • mbf this nerd
  • reblog this post
  • tell me if you want a blog rate or fancast (or both)
  • if you want a fancast, also send me your seflie tag or submit a photo
  • I really want to follow more blogs so please let there be more than like 20 notes

blog rates will look like:
