Off-Topic Tuesday

blog, mom life, off-topic

Sadly, I’ve been too busy with life and school lately to make much progress on my TBR. I’ve gotten five chapters into my The Raven Boys reread and flipped through a few pages of the adorable Bloom graphic novel, but I haven’t been able to really dive in. That’s okay. As in all things, book binges come and go in waves. Life is all ebbs and flows. Right now my flow is a lot of kid stuff, getting through finals season, and obsessing over Game of Thrones. And that’s okay! But I started this blog to get back into the habit of writing and creating a little bit every day, so here I am. Let’s get off topic!

Read this, Not that – Vampire Edition


The earliest recorded vampire story is a Greek myth about a man who was cursed by Apollo the sun god because he was jealous of his girlfriend (this is the basis of 90% of all stories in Greek myth btw). A quick glance at this will give you an idea of just how long we humans have been vibing with vampire stories. Spoiler alert: it’s been a really, really long time.
