Miscellaneous is the tagline to store random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. They may involve tags, awards, challenges, and other book blogging nonsense.
What’s Miscellaneous Today?
I Am More Happy Than Not Tag
The I Am More Happy Than Not Tag was adapted by Shelumiel @ Bookish and Awesome as a companion to Adam Silvera’s upcoming novel More Happy Than Not. There aren’t any rules for this tag than to simply highlight ways you’ve been able to express happiness from the things—big and small—in your life.

I Am More Happy Than Not Tag
Whenever my perpetually overheating Alienware laptop powers up, though already having a dead battery, I am definitely more happy than not. (It’s connected to the outlet now.)
Whenever I read or review a book, even if it’s incomparable to what other beastly bloggers seem to churn out, I am more happy than not.
Whenever I word-vomit nonsensical ideas with uncertainty of its acceptance in the world, though I am only being myself in what I write, I am unequivocally more happy than not.
Whenever I come across something hilarious, even if I am the only one laughing, I’ll take my happiness over none at all.
Whenever I do everything else that isn’t reading, which seems to be all the time, I am definitely more happy than not. (Reading ranks lower in me-time after sleep, television/films, writing, and gaming.)
Whenever I read a physical book on commute, irrespective of what I’m reading, I know I’m a cool badass and happier than otherwise.
Whenever I bump into inanimate objects and apologize with a “Sorry”, I remain unapologetically more happy than not. (Canadians will understand my woes.)
Whenever I’m in public and there is a door to be held for someone behind me, even if I lose a few seconds, I am more happy than not in doing so.
Whenever I discover a new addicting track to listen to, I am more happy than not listening to it on repeat for the next week or until I find the next tune to catch my ear. (Currently: Luke Shay feat. Jeremy William’s Up And Away & Jessie J’s Flashlight from Pitch Perfect 2—WHICH I HAVEN’ T EVEN SEEN THE MOVIE FOR YET.)
Whenever I write fragmented stories of a much bigger picture, even if I spend hours cutting and revising the same sentence, I am without regret and am more happy than not.
Whenever my buddy and I jam, even though we haven’t done it in ages (not to mention
we’re I’m off-pitch most of the time), I am more happy than not to belt shower songs with others.
Here’s a clip from a Disney/Mulan session. The audio is questionable at best but most of all, I hope your ears don’t bleed from my singing: [This link will redirect you to SoundCloud. You have to click the play button #prepareforbleedingears] – Laugh and cringe along with me :)!
**GoogleDrive audio wouldn’t share outside of CAN/US apparently, so I had to settle for SoundCloud instead. If the above link doesn’t work then let me know. Ahhh this was so annoying to troubleshoot.
