SASSY Saturday

Hey there my lovelies!

Welcome back to another round of my montly blog meme „SASSY Saturday“!

How does it work? Well, that’s easy! 😉

All you have to do is to follow those three golden rules:

1. Credit the creator of this tag (The Sassy Library Fox) and link back. (so I can see all your amazing answers!)
2. Answer the 5 questions below!
3. AND enjoy doing the blog meme! 😛 

„SASSY Saturday“ is planned to be a monthly meme but if you want to do it more often feel free to go for it! This meme was created to get to know other bloggers, their new obsessions and to reflect on your own last month! Above all it was created to have fun though! 😉 If you want you can also use the banner I created! This said let’s head to the good part:

S – Series you loved this month

Crash Landing On You: So this k-drama was recommended to me by my Yoongi’s mom and let me tell you this: Her mom has impeccable taste in k-dramas! *lol* ❤ I love this so much and since every episode takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes I’m still not done with the series. As for what it is about: Se-Ri is among the rich and the famous of Seouls upper class and has her own company. One day she tests a new product of her company, a parachute but on that day there is a sudden tornado and before she even knows it she’s in North Korea and desperately tries to get back to Seoul. And of course there is a handsome and kind-hearted captain named Ri Jeong-hyeok and his funny side-kicks that try to help her get back to South Korea. If you haven’t watched this yet: Do it! It’s soo good! Very heart-breaking but also super funny and ahhh this just hits you in the feels! T_T

Claire Legrand – Sawkill Girls

I never expected to enjoy this book so much but wow Claire Legrand totally persuaded me of her writing style! This was great and would have been a perfect Halloween read for me. XD Also it tackles a lot of important topics like misogyny, feminism and abuse. I’ll watch out for her next book now. =)

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

TXT – 0X1 = LOVESONG

I got soo hooked on this song! *lol* TXT recently released a new song and had their comeback, but I’m still vibing to this one. (Not that I’m not also vibing to their new one. XD) Anyway! I really love their music and it’s very catchy. Plus the members are all so adorable! They feel like my little brothers and TXT needs to be protected at all costs.  ❤

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

Apparently I have … fans?! O_o Which totally caught me off guard because I never expected to have actual fans that would love my BookTube videos and watch all of them. *lol* I know you’d think that’s kind of the intention when you start a BookTube channel but I actually started it for fun and to try something new in order to help other people to find the perfect book. So yeah, I really appreciate that there are people out there who love my content. XD If you read this: Thank you so much for your continued support and all the lovely words! ❤ It means the world to me that you’re following my bookish journey!l I don’t think I deserve to have such amazing fans but I’ll try my best to keep things interesting for you! ❤ ❤ 💜

Wait… You Haven’t Actually Read That Already? by Tova @ Petyr Baeish Books

This was super relatable because we all have books we haven’t read yet even though everybody and their grandma already read them. *lol* Also I still love the name of Tova’s blog! XD It’s great! And @ Tova: Sorry I didn’t write the entire title of the blog post. It was just too long. Haha! I hope you can forgive me? 😉

S – Series you loved this month

My Love from the Star: This was such a good k-drama! When I first started to watch it, I wasn’t all too convinced if I’d like it, because it was my first k-drama playing in modern times and not in the Joseon dynasty. *lol* (Yeah, I love to watch historical k-dramas) But ahh the story of an alien that comes to earth and spends 400 years on it before there is another opportunity to leave our planet immediately grew close to my heart. Especially because he falls in love in the last 3 months before he has to return. AHHHH!!! T_T This k-drama had it all: family, enemies-to-lovers, historical elements, wisdom and while it made me laugh at the beginning it had me in tears during the last couple of episodes. I swear I cried a river! So, so, good! *cries again*

Sophie Gonzales & Cale Dietrich – If This Gets Out

I didn’t just discover those two authors I also ended up loving their book!!! „If This Gets Out“ was everything I ever wanted and even more and I loved this book to bits and pieces! ❤ Ruben and Zach were amazing and I will ship Zuben forever! *sings* „And I will go down with this ship…“ *lol* Okay, enough of me singing and back to the topic at hand! „If This Gets Out“ was great and I loved that the authors tackled a lot of serious and interesting issues as well! So if you can get your hands on a copy: DO IT!!! Highly recommended! Also if you love BTS and ship one of the band ships, this is the perfect book for you! *lol* ;-P


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

BTS – Permission to Dance

How am I supposed to write another song in here?! Just when I thought I would listen to „Butter“ all summer long (which I still do btw *lol*) they threw out their new single „Permission to Dance“ on July 9th! And it is sooo amazing, I can’t even!!! This song gives me all the good vibes and positive energy and it makes me so, so, so happy! You have no idea! XD I love how BTS uses their music to spread positivity and hope and I’ll never get tired of talking about them! Because after all their struggles and hard work: They DESERVE it!!! Also can we acknowledge how thoughtful and awesome it is that they used sign language in their choreo?! 💜 💜 💜 And because I love their song so much I decided to take part in the „Permission to Dance“ challenge too. Usually I only post book videos on my YouTube channel but I just couldn’t resist. So if you want to see me having a good time while I dance to their song here’s the video:

Let’s spread hope and happiness in this horrible Covid time! And even if you’re no fan of BTS and not part of ARMY I’m sure me goofing around and having fun should be enough to make you smile! (or at least to make you laugh about me. *lol*)

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That I got my second shot of the vaccine and ended up having side-effects… Again! *lol* Like seriously! I thought the second time it would be better and for a while it actually was. I got vaccinated on a Saturday afternoon and up until Sunday around lunch time everything was okay. Well, and then I got a headache made in hell, fever and chills. I slept the rest of Sunday, didn’t even get out of bed on Monday and went back to work on Tuesday like nothing ever happened. So weird. *lol* The good thing is: I’m fully vaccinated now and should be fine! =)

My obsession for Cdramas + thoughts on Nirvana in Fire by Sahi @ My World of Books

I just loved everything about Sahi’s post because I could relate so much when it comes to being obsessed with dramas *lol* In my case it are k-dramas though but after Sahi’s post I’ll definitely check out a couple of her cdama recommendations because they sound really great too! If you’re a fan of k-dramas or c-dramas or basically any sort of drama you should read her post! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as well. 😉

S – Series you loved this month

The Tale of Nokdu: Okay, it’s official: Hwarang got me hooked on k-dramas! Fictional historical k-dramas I may add! Gosh, I loved this story so much! It’s about Nok-du who was raised by his father not knowing who he is and when his family gets attacked he finally wants to get some answers and follows the assassin to a widow village. But only widows are allowed in there so he dresses up as one in order to find out who wants to kill him and why. And this is only the beginning, my friends! AHHH! This series gave me all the feels! At first I had to laugh, then I was shocked and by the end of this series I was constantly in tears! This was amazing!!! I’m still blown away! AHHH the feels! ❤

Sylvain Neuvel – Sleeping Giants

This book was sold to me as some sort of „Illuminae“ and even though it’s a whole lot different than „Illuminae“ the interview style of the story is definitely similar. Still, this was not what I expected it to be, but it was at least as intriguing as the „Illuminae Files“! In the end I read this pretty fast and I think „Sleeping Giants“ actually managed to get me back into sci-fi! And the best thing?! There are still two more books left! 😀

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Isak Danielson – Power

There’s something about this song that got me! Maybe it’s because the style kind of reminds me of Hozier? I dunno! What I DO know is that the lyrics are great and that the combination of the music and the atmosphere fit perfectly to the songtext! ❤ Also Isak’s voice is great!

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

My sudden obsession with k-dramas! *lol* Like seriously. I started with „Hwarang“, continued with „Nokdu“ and now I’m so deep into the k-drama world I can’t even get out of it anymore. And to be completely honest I don’t want to. ;-P I’m fine in my k-drama rabbit hole and will make myself comfortable in there.

Also: At the end of June I reached a 100 subscribers on my BookTube channel and actually got my own URL now. Which is amazing! So thank you to everyone who’s also following me over there! ❤ You guys are amazing and I can’t thank you enough for all the support and kind words I got over the years! Without your constant encouragement I certainly would have never even thought about starting my own channel! ❤ This said: If you ever wanted to ask me something you can do it now! I’m celebrating my 100 subscribers with a Q&A and will answer your questions in a video! So don’t hesitate to drop me a comment and fire away. 😉

Please keep giving me all the f/f romances by Elli @ AceReader

I just loved that blog post and was so happy to discover new f/f romances. I still think there aren’t enough of those out there in the world and I sometimes have the feeling that they are drowned out by all the great m/m releases. We definitely need more amazing f/f couples in our lives and Elli’s blog post was amazing! ❤

Book Recommendations: Pride Month Edition – 10 Books with Trans, Non-Binary and Genderqueer Rep to Read During Pride Month! by CW @ The Quiet Pond

Since June was pride month I decided to feature two of my fave blog posts this month and this one also made it on my list! I’ve been following „The Quiet Pond“ (what an amazing blog name!!! <3) for quite a while now and they always have amazing content and well-thought-out blog posts. During pride month they even went for a Pride Month Edition in which they introduced lots of books with different LGBTQ+ reps and I lived and breathed for it! If you don’t know them already you should so click that link and discover their blog!!!

What do you think about „SASSY Saturday“? Would you like to join the fun? Did you ever hear of „Sleeping Giants“? Which kind of series are you obsessed with at the moment? Any k-drama fans out there? *lol* Did you celebrate pride month as well and if yes how?!

Shadow and Bone: I watched all of those 8 episodes at the beginning of the month and I regret NOTHING! *lol* I wasn’t all too sure they would be able to combine the two book series but they did a marvellous job and I really love the cast they chose! Also I liked that they made them older because it was way more realisic that way. XD Can’t wait for season two!

Hwarang: This is a buddy watch with my Yoongi and I’m so happy we’re watching this together because I live and breathe for her commentary and our discussions and theories about the episodes! *lol* You might say I came for Tae but stayed for the amazing cast and all the drama! ;-P But seriously this series is sooo damn good! So far I laughed and cried and shook my head and bit my fist! Haha! I’m feeling all the feels and I really hope this will end well for all of the Hwarangs. Also V is so damn adorable in this series I can’t even! ❤ (Plus the entire cast! Including V of course! All. so. damn. pretty!!!)

Stephanie Garber – Caraval

I’m about 50% into this book now and so far I really like it! I never read a book by Stephanie Garber but if I end up enjoying this I’ll definitely continue to read this series. For me „Caraval“ is a totally new concept and I’m very curious how it will all unfold. XD


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

BTS – Butter

I know, I know! It’s a BTS song again but seriously I’ve been listening (and dancing) to this ever since it came out and I just can’t get enough of this song! It’s too good! I love everything about it and the lyrics are some sort of personal attack. *lol* This is a song for ARMY and I’m sooo happy about it!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ Also the visuals! They are set on giving ARMY a heartattack! I will never get over JK AND Tae (in the GMA Summer Concert „Butter“ version) having a ponytail!!! NEVER! *dies*

Oh, and just in case you want to hear my thoughts and see my reaction to „Butter“:

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That I reached the amazing number of 90 subscribers on my BookTube channel. Quite honestly I never thought I’d even get close to that so it’s a surprise so many people are following and apparently also enjoying my channel. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll even reach the magical 100. *lol* You can always dream, right? ;-P

Why Leigh Bardugo’s Crows ARE The Umbrella Academy @ Hundreds & Thousands of Books

This was a great idea and if you don’t already know „Hundreds & Thousands of Books“ you should definitely check out this blog! 😉

Above all it was created to have fun though! 😉 If you want you can also use the banner I created! This said let’s head to the good part:

S – Series you loved this month

„Get Even“ –  Now this was actually quite an interesting series on Netflix. It’s about 4 girls that are tired of how things are handled (or rather not handled) at their school and form a club that’s named D.G.M. They expose everything that goes wrong and no matter if it’s the PE coach or a student, they set things right. But suddenly a student is murdered and all the hints lead to D.G.M. I really enjoyed this series because it reminded me a lot of „Pretty Little Liars“ and the four girls were all interesting and had their own background stories. XD

„Spinning Out“ – This is a series about figure skating and since I’m a fan of figure skating this was perfect. It’s not only about the two sisters Kate and Serena Baker though but also about their personal struggles with their mother and about the toxic and complicated „friendships“ between figure skaters in general. What was really interesting were the bipolar and PTSD rep. You rarely see them in shows so kudos for daring to tackle those serious topics. It’s kinda sad there’s only one season.

A – Author you discovered

40402188. sy475

Lev A.C. Rosen – Now this was a book I thoroughly enjoyed! I loved Jack’s column and the mystery element was super intriguing! I can’t emphasize it enough: There need to be more YA books like this! Realistic books about sexual intercourse are still so rare and I loved this sex postive and direct approach! I want more unapologetic and blunt books like that and I’m definitely going to read L.C. Rosen’s next book! ;-P

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

BTS – Blue & Grey

I just love this song with all my heart! And I’m currently feeling „Blue & Grey“ too so this is just perfect. I can’t thank Tae enough for writing this song because it resonates so much with me and whenever I’m tired and on my way home from work, I listen to it. It somehow gives me the energy and strength I need to continue with my day. BTS is quite literally balm for my exhausted soul. ❤

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

That I got two ARCs I’ve been dying to read through the „Read Now“ option on NetGalley. Like „YES“!!! I’m so going to read the hell out of them! They both sound amazing! 😀

Review: House of Earth and Blood by Lia @ Chain of Novels

I absolutely loved and adored Lia’s review of „House of Earth and Blood“! ❤ Reading her review reminded me so much of my own experience with this book and all the ups and downs!

Hugs’n’Kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs

hugs'n'kisses or dismissed by the missus

Hey there, my lovelies!

The last time I did this was about two months ago and since I’m currently reading the book I decided to „hug and read“ I figured it would be time to go for another round. I’m not doing this meme as often as I’d like to but I guess I can do it at least once every two months. That way I’ll still be able to reduce my TBR and feel no pressure to do so. This said: Let’s go for it! =)

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 295, so for instance I’ll pick 43, 164 and 214)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (43 – For a Few Demons More, 164 – Not Your Sidekick, 214 – Kushiel’s Dart)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Kushiel’s Dart: I’ve owned this book for about 2 years and I didn’t read it because I held out hope that my friend would buddy read it with me. After two years the chances we’ll actually read this are super slim though so I decided to just go for it. It’s time to move on and to finally read this!)

One to kiss and keep, (For a Few Demons More: This is book 5 in a series and I’m pretty certain I’ll continue to read it once my library opens up again and I get my hands on an English copy. *lol*)

One to dismiss and weep! (Not Your Sidekick: I’d usually be the first one to jump at the opportunity to read a LGBTQ+ book, but a lot of my GR friends didn’t really enjoy this and the ratings are pretty low. For now I’ll dismiss it and weep. I might come back to it one day though. Never say never.)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

So I’m currently at 295 books and still far away from my goal of 275. I know I’ll get there one day though! I’m determined to reduce my TBR even though publishers and authors make it really hard to fight against the flood. *lol* If I can make it under 290 this year I’ll definitely count it as a win. XD

S – Series you loved this month

Ginny & Georgia: This was quite a series. It felt like some weird mixture of „The Gilmore Girls“ meets „Pretty Little Liars“ with a little touch of WTH? *lol* I mean Ginny and Georgia definitely don’t have a lot in common with Rory and Lorelai but I could see some parallels like the young mom that’s cool and the silent broody kid that wants to fit in. XD Still, this series had dark secrets and that made it rather „Pretty Little Liars“ than „Gilmore Girls“. ;-P

Tiny Pretty Things: I always knew ballet was tough but boy, this series was an entirely different level of tough. *lol* These ballet dancers play dirty and they all have their tricks to get their place in the spotlight. Competitiveness is more than just merely a word and some of those students would do everything for a solo. So that leaves us with the question of all questions: Who pushed Cassie from the roof? XD

Emily Henry – Beach Read

This was something entirely different than I expected but I still paged through it and enjoyed it immensely. Emily Henry managed to mix some serious topics with romance and a dash of humour and I think she did it more than just well. XD I’ll definitely watch out for her other books now.


S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

Olivia Rodrigo – Drivers License

This song is really slow and sad and it gives me all the feels! March was a tough month so I kind of listened to slow music? Guess I’m one of those people that show their mood through their music song choices. *lol*

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

How much I love and care about my online friends. I got really close with Jello and Sabrina and I can’t even remember my life without them. I mean I never met them in person and probably never will but they’ve both become such an important part of my life. ❤ I’m so glad I found such great friends and I hope our friendships will stay strong for the rest of our lives. @ My Yoongi: I want to meet your kids one day! *LOL* ;-P 💜

Songuage #13: Film Out – BTS by Pannaga @ The Tomboy’s Attic

Okay, so technically this post was written by Pannaga at the beginning of April but due to my health issues I was really bad at blog hopping in March and decided to go for a recent blog post I loved. Which brings me right to Pannaga’s! *lol* She’s an ARMY like me and her reaction to the new BTS MC „Film Out“ was so relatable that it made me happy and caused me to laugh! XD So if you like BTS you should definitely check out her blog and give her some love! 😀

Fate – The Winx Saga! Luckily it’s been a while I watched the original series and read the comics. So I don’t remember all that much and while watching the series I got a feeling that this is actually working in my favour. *lol* (For instance I vaguely remember that Bloom had shoulder length straight red hair and no long red curls. XD) So I really found myself enjoying this tv series even though I’m pretty sure that it doesn’t have a lot in common with the original. Okay, I admit Bloom was a little bit too reckless, impulsive and rebellious for my taste but I definitely loved Terra and Musa! ❤

This was definitely a thought-proving read and if you’re looking for something similar to „The Hate U Give“ I can totally recommend „Dear Martin“! They have similar topics but they are very different in their approach and I really liked this. 🙂 Also because this topic is still important and relevant: #BlackLivesMatter

My sister is the reason why I love this song so much now. *lol* She wanted us to dance to this together on my birthday and well, you all know me, I love to dance so I said: Okay, I’m game. XD Little did I know that this song isn’t only earworm material but also very exhausting to dance to as well. We gave it our all and were really happy afterwards. Tired but happy. It’s been a while we were able to dance together but now that it’s allowed to meet another household again we just went for it. (We all got tested before meeting up too. Better safe than sorry! 😉 )

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

There were actually two things that surprised me in February:

1.) I reached 400 followers on my blog and since this was my longterm goal for 2021 I’m kind of… overwhelmed? *lol* I really need to celebrate this somehow! For now: Thank you guys so much for following me and for liking my blog and content! ❤

2.) I started my own booktube channel in February and no one is more surprised about this than I am. *lol* Like seriously, what am I even doing? XD My sister and my brother-in-law have way too much faith in me but well, I guess I’ll just try it out and see where this is heading. If you’re interested in my YouTube channel you can take a closer look at it here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5JIlW3yzWkOH0PFewOqdbw

And before the question even arises: Yes, I’ll continue with my blog on wordpress! My channel won’t kill my blog, if anything it will be some sort of extension of it. 😉

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

Fanart Friday: Happy birthday j-hope! @ Notes From A Paper Plane Nomad

Yes, my Yoongi! This time it’s you in the spotlight! ;-P Sabrina who I affectionately call Yoongi because she’s the Yoongi to my V is one hell of an amazing artist and I love her drawings to bits and pieces! The picture she made for J-Hope’s birthday is amazing and I love all the colours and details she put into it! ❤ This must have been a hell of work but she’s so modest about it! So this is a shout-out to my dear friend and her skills! Give her (and Hobi) some love and take a closer look at that awesome drawing!

400 Followers Celebration Post & My BookTube channel

Hey there, my lovelies!!!

I know three exclamation marks is very enthusiastic but OMG I am very excited right now! On the one hand I recently hit the huge number of 400 Followers on WordPress and on the other hand I actually went for my own BookTube channel and recently posted my first video! So YAY! =)))

To be entirely honest I didn’t think I’d reach either of those goals so I’m really happy I actually did! I think to understand my enthusiasm I have to give some sort of backstory here, otherwise you might just think I’m weird. (Oh, well, you already do that, right? *lol*) Anyway!

I don’t know about you but when I started on WordPress about 2 1//2 years ago I was a total newbie (weren’t we all?) and had no idea what I was doing. I saw all those amazing blogs and they were all so unique and special and really nice to read. So I thought I want my blog to be a nice and safe space too, where people can read and skim through my content and enjoy a couple of minutes without any stress or commitment. I saw those huge blogs with so many followers and thought: Oh boy, I’ll probably never get there but it will be fun to try. So I started my blog, drew my fox and my paws rating, made some banners on Canva and just went with the flow. Back then I admired the blogs that had 400 Followers because, wow that was a lot for me! And that’s exactly the reason why I’m so excited right now, because I’ve hit that number that always felt so HUGE! And tell you what? It still feels pretty huge! *lol*

So after reaching this goal and thanks to a lot of support not only from the goodreads community but also from my family and friends I finally decided to go for my own BookTube channel. For now there’s just an introduction video and I already know that I still have a lot to learn! XD This said I know I can do better and I’ll try my best to make this work. And before you even ask: Of course I’ll continue with my wordpress blog because it’s my baby and I just love to write and to chat with you guys. I see my BookTube channel as some sort of extension to my blog and I’m sure this will be a great opportunity to broaden my horizon!

This said: Is there some content you’d want to see either on my blog or on my BookTube? I’m open for every idea! =) I can’t really do a giveaway at the moment but I’ll definitely give you guys a shout-out on my channel! XD I pondered the idea of another Q & A but I don’t know if you guys would be up for it? I suppose I could even answer them in video form since I have BookTube now. *lol* What I can already say is: THANK YOU!!! To all of you, no matter how short or how long you’ve been following me! ❤ ❤ ❤

Hugs’n’Kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs

hugs'n'kisses or dismissed by the missus

Hey there, my lovelies!

It’s been ages I last did this! In fact it’s been so long I needed to blow away the dust that settled on my blog meme! *lol* There! Better! XD I really should do this more often in 2021 and maybe I’ll even make a new logo. On the one hand it’s funny to see my old logos and creations because it shows how far I’ve come as a blogger, but on the other hand I can’t help but cringe whenever I see them. And this one is certainly no exception to the rule. Haha! Anyway, let’s do this! =)

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 295, so for instance I’ll pick 74, 138 and 252)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (74 – Mind Games, 138 – The Darkest Night, 252– Broken Throne)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Broken Throne: This is a book that isn’t only on My Book List 2020 but also one I already own so this is perfect! 😀 )

One to kiss and keep, (The Darkes Night: This sounds like one of those books I might read when I crave for something fast that has a couple that can’t keep their hands from each other. *lol* So I’ll just keep it for now. You never know when THAT kind of mood hits you. ;-P )

One to dismiss and weep! (Mind Games: Hmm I can’t help but wonder why I added this to my list. Sure it’s paranormal and urban fantasy which I like every once in a while, but the plot really doesn’t capture my interest. Why did 2017-me add this to my TBR? *lol*)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

I still didn’t reach my goal of 275 books but hey at least I’m at 293 now! *lol* With all the amazing books that are constantly hitting the stores it’s really tough to keep your TBR in check and considering it all I think I’m doing a good job. I was already at 306 once so as long as I’m slowly but surely approaching a number under 290 I’m good. XD

*hugs’n’kisses*
