January 2018 Wrap-Up | What’s New?

The first month of 2018 is at it’s end and boy, am I glad it’s over. Let’s just say I had a rough start of the new year. I had to take finals, then went through the grueling process of trying to change one of my classes for the new semester. This semester I’m taking most of my hard classes so I’m struggling to keep up with everything.

All that being said, I haven’t had the time to read… (which is nothing new at this point).

Let’s just say I need a fresh start and I’m glad February is right around the corner.

Day 868 – Happy New Year!


Life Update

I’m exhausted. I’m sick again, and I haven’t been getting enough sleep. My schedule this semester is filled with difficult classes so I haven’t had the time to read. I’m not sure I’ll ever have the time to read until summer rolls around. This is my fourth or fifth time being sick this school year and I can’t afford to miss more school, especially since we just started new classes. All in all, I feel a bit dejected with everything because I feel like I’m moving backwards rather than forwards.

I might have to take a week or two hiatus to heal up and make sure I’m taking care of my body because clearly I’m doing something wrong.

We’ll see.

I hope everyone had a lovely January and here’s to a great rest of the year! 🙂


Until next time….

    Seems like we’re in the same boat! Sick (check), not enough sleep (check), too much work to do (check), not enough reading time (check)… Life is suck-ish sometimes, but we’ll make it through! Feel better soon 🙂

    I still haven’t read Warcross, I think it may turn into one of those books I always want to read but never get around to, which is a shame since I have been hearing great things!

    I’ve read The Devil in the White City! It was interesting, but I didn’t like it that much. There were zero likeable people! (Well duh, of course there wasn’t.)
    Oh no, I’m sorry you’re not feeling well!! Get better soon. 🙂

      I didn’t like any of the characters either. The only character that was remotely likable was the detective who was investigating Holmes.
      Thank you! I’m feeling a bit better now so I should be 100% in a couple days ❤️

    It’s too bad that your year didn’t start out that great. Good job on making it through January! ❤ I completely get not being able to read when you have difficult classes in a semester – even if you have the time to read you just don't feel motivated to pick up a book. Good luck with your semester and I hope that you will feel better soon! ❤ 🙂

      Thank you! I’m glad I’m not the only one who has gone through the phase of no motivation for reading… good luck on your semester as well! ❤️
