What I Want From 2019

Thursday, January 31, 2019

I have always been someone that loves the stars. I love the constellations and astrology and astronomy and everything else that has to do with the universe that we are a part of. Thus, I believe in karma and putting positive vibes and energy out into the world. I really wanted to take the most out of my life in 2019 no matter what. Instead of posting this at the beginning of the month like many people, I thought I would post about what I want from 2019. I want to work with the universe to manifest a good year so here are a few things I want from this year.

Review Round Up (1): First YA Books of 2019

Sunday, January 27, 2019

Writing reviews for the books I read was my introduction to blogging and I am always thankful to have found this amazing community. Even though I stopped posting reviews in 2016, I carried out my love for talking about books into every blog I've had since.

I'll explain the significance of the word of the year in a little bit but first: the word for 2019 is:

Welcome to As Told By Akchita

Wednesday, January 2, 2019

*This original post went up on January 2, 2019 but on a test blog and not this one.*

Today, I turned 24 years old. 

It always feels weird to simultaneously begin the new year and turn a year older. It wasn't until last year, my first birthday after not being in school, that this really hit me. There is something so incredible about the idea of new beginnings coming along with a new year of my life. 

That is probably why, after 9 (whoa!!!) years of blogging on and off, I have decided to close all of my previous blogs and introduce this new blog. As Told By Akchita has been in the works for well over a year and 2019 just felt like the best year to officially start posting on here.
