Notes On Me For You

unnamed-1

The shark in this picture is named Shylock, and I painted him. For privacy purposes, I no longer own the T-shirt seen above.

I am the writer of this blog. Some people call me booksandbark. Others call me Sabrina. My pronouns in use are she/her/hers. I am short, bookish, and try my best to avoid the gym by eating food.

Like many other millennials, I am currently a broke college student studying something that I may not graduate with a degree in and which will definitely not earn me much money. Originally from California, I now reside in New York, where I take pictures of buildings and visit museums.

I enjoy looking at cityscapes, eating books, and being a fan of the fonts used on this blog. I use Ecosia and this makes me feel slightly better about my carbon footprint. I own a succulent named Arnold Richelieu Schwarzenegger and sometimes I forget to water him.

I’ve interned in libraries, which pleases me greatly, and in science departments, which fascinates me. I hope to one day work for a non-profit and I like to write things.

This is my fifth year of blogging.

  1. Wow, are you sure you are just a teen? Your blog schedule is precise in itself, let alone the quality of your writing. Not surprising you have so many followers already. Keep doing what works!

    • Oh my God, thank you!
      I’ve always thought of myself as a little bit of a pessimist and… wow. This just means so much to me, you don’t even know it. I literally jumped off my bed and started screaming when I saw this.
      ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
      Thank you, thank you thank you, I can't thank you enough. Just… wow.
      Thank you. ❤ I'll be sure to write the post soon!

  2. So you’re into fonts? That’s great because most just see letters. I hope you pursue fonts for they are the formation and creation of ideas and ideals. Thanks for the like. I wrote about a three legged dog, but my inspiration came from its handicap. This is something to which I can relate with because I believe myself to be a three legged dog in a four legged race.

    • Yes, I absolutely adore fonts! If a font is not to my taste, I sometimes can’t bring myself to read a book, which I know isn’t a good thing. 😛
      No problem! Your post was wonderful. It’s great that you have a meaning and metaphor behind what you’re writing. 😀

      – Sabrina

    • No problem! It’s wonderful that you have decided to become a teacher. Some of my teachers have been lifesavers. ❤

      I hope your future students love and appreciate you!

      – Sabrina

  3. Lovely to have you follow me and it gave me a reason to stumble on here. Your writing is lovely, as are all your other passions. Looking forward to reading from you in the future. PS – if your last name is Wolfheart, that’s pretty badass.

  4. Thanks for the follow 🙂 You seem like an awesome person. I didn’t realize you were so young! You seemed like early 20s to me, lol. I’m in my late 20s, but I don’t know how I come off to others on the internet. Looking forward to more of your updates 😉

    I think it’s great that you are so devoted to helping dogs. There are so many dogs and cats that need help 😦 I’m a huge cat lover, big and small. I have two kitties of my own that I got from a hoarding situation. I spayed and neutered them as soon as I could. I help support charity organizations like Big Cat Rescue that save and shelter exotic cats. They take in abused, neglected, unwanted, and retired exotic cats, but their main goal is to end private ownership of all exotic cats. We have more tigers privately owned in America than there are wild ones left in the world. . .

    Sorry for the tangent ^_^’ Nice to meet you!

    • Oh, no problem! Your writing and ideas seem wonderful. I loved your WeWriWa excerpt. 😀 I’ve been told by my friends that I often don’t come off as a teen blogger when other read my blog… Oh, well. I guess it’s just my writing style, or something. 😉

      I love dogs, and cats, too, but I haven’t really been able to get involved with them because I’m not as comfortable with them as I am with dogs. I have wanted a dog my whole life, and now I live with one, so I have more experience with them, is all. I love kitties, too. It’s lovely that you’ve rescued some, I always am a HUGE supporter of rescuing animals rather than breeding/buying… there are already so many without homes in this world. 😥 I honestly think it’s disgusting that people can “privately own tigers”… I mean, they are living animals! We should really be trying harder to save our planet and all the diverse and beautiful species that live here…

      No, it’s perfectly fine 😀 I love talking about animals, they just don’t show up too much on my blog, for some reason. 🙂

      – Sabrina

  5. “I can also be found the old-fashioned way, via e-mail…” LMAO!!! Make me feel old! Thanks. ^_^ I grew up with snail mail and witnessed the beginning of the internet. Fun times. I don’t feel old until I have to mess with HTML or hear teenagers say e-mail is old-fashioned. 😉 lol

    Oh wow. That gave me a good laugh! Perfect way to start the day. Thanks! 😀

    • Oh, that was supposed to be a joke. 😛 I must admit, I didn’t grow up with snail mail (though I LOVE getting books through it!), but I’ve just noticed that a lot of people don’t use e-mail to communicate anymore (well, there goes the nerdism, tearing apart a perfectly laughable moment… oops?).
      I’m glad it made you laugh! And thanks for the follow 😉

  6. Hi Sabrina, thanks so much for the follow. As you’ve probably seen by now, I’ve been exploring and enjoying your blog, too! I’m glad I got the opportunity to do so. I’m also going to turn my mom onto it, because she is a HUGE animal rescue fanatic and follows many shelters and organizations. You’re a very talented and inspirational young woman, I wish you great luck in all of your endeavors! Keep up the awesome work. 🙂

    • Hi Melody (love the name by the way—one of my protagonists’s!),

      I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog! I love yours, too!

      I’m a HUGE animal advocate, and I’m glad you like my blog so much as to share it! 😀

      I hope I manage to keep up the quality 😉

  12. Hey, are you interested in collab reviewing Doctor Who series 9 with me this fall? 🙂 Let me know if you are and I’ll email you in the next few days with more info! (I’m talking to some of last year’s reviewers in advance because I know they’re reliable and can write coherent reviews, so they get to choose episodes before anyone else…)
