It has been a month since I finished my book and the waiting game has been interesting. I was fine, then I was panicked, then I was fine again, and now I'm back to being a mess. Kind of feels like when my heart starts to pound at 10pm it knows someone is dragging a red… Continue reading The Waiting Game
Hello friends. I've decided to combine my "Adventure Awaits" blog from my summer journeys into a new blog, with a new format, and bigger stakes. It's been a while since I checked in there, and almost a year since I started blogging.

Sam Claflin's acting in Me Before You is ridiculous, so if you're in need of a good cry this weekend, there you go. (P.S. the book is better.) In other news, after slowly desiccating for the past… Continue reading Rachel has Internet, Balance is Restored
