Anxiety by Selena Gomez and Julia Michaels

I was listening to music on Spotify when I came across 'Anxiety' by Selena Gomez and Julia Michaels. The title piqued my interest as someone who has dealt with anxiety. The opening is sharp but I could really relate to the lyrics, relating to some of them as how I felt in the past. I am so happy that a song about mental health was written and produced. Here's to more creations discussing such an important topic that affects so many.

Have you heard this song? What do you think?

If you are dealing with a mental illness, know that you are not alone and things will get better, no matter how dark things seem. I would also recommend Hailey in Bookland's recent video on her mental health.

The Nostalgia of Pokemon Let’s Go: A Review

Pokemon Leaf Green was my first adventure in the Pokemon world and to this day it still holds a place in my heart. My partner, Bulbasaur and I met many challenges and explored wonderous new places together. Ever since then, Pokemon has been a part of me.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell Book Review

Attachments follows a man named Lincoln who is hung up on a previous relationship. He is employed to read through flagged emails at a newspaper during the late 90s when computers were being introduced. He begins reading emails between Jennifer and Beth but instead of warning them for using flagged words in their emails, he grows to like them. The chapters alternate between following Lincoln and the email exchanges between the two women.

This story had an interesting character ARC for all three characters and even side characters. It was great to see the characters develop and find themselves throughout the book.

After having read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and enjoying it so much, I thought I would try this book next.
