The month of August went by way to quickly. I feel like summer just started yesterday and now I’m going back to school.
I’m a little bit overwhelmed with the workload (as I have never taken this many advanced classes at once), but I feel like after a couple weeks or so I’ll find a good routine.
For now, I’m going to take Lilly Singh’s advice and just HUSTLE!
July has been a pretty lowkey month for me, thankfully. I finally had more time to read the books I wanted to rather than read old English that I had to pretend to understand (although I’m sure my English teachers weren’t fooled).
I might not have posted a lot this month (with a whopping total of five posts not including this one) but then I looked back on the past couple months and the amount of posts I make have continually decreased. Now it hovers between 4-6 posts a month. I would say that I plan to post a lot more often but I know I won’t be able to when the new school year comes around.
Minus the fact that I didn’t post as frequently as I would like, I definitely read a lot more than I usually do, which feels GREAT. I can’t believe I was depriving myself of this.
April was a low-key month for me reading-wise. I can’t say the same thing for my school life, however. My classes have all started dishing out their end-of-year projects and I still need to study for all my AP exams this year. Wish me luck because my first one is this Tuesday >.<
I also haven’t been posting as frequently as I want to. I aim to post once every two days, but now my schedule has turned into posting whenever I can. I must’ve done something bad in my previous life because karma wasn’t on my side this month. Not only did I have writer’s block, I also was in a artist’s block and reading slump.
Basically, I got nothing productive done.
What I did get done was read through several comics on Tapastic because that’s all my brain was happy to handle. (Which, btw, if you haven’t checked out my web comic you definitely should because you really want to support your fellow artist here, eh?)
March was a rough month school-wise, but I finally started reading at the normal pace I’m used to (a.k.a. reading 4+ books at the same time).
Classes are getting tougher thanks to upcoming AP tests. I don’t think I’ll be able to dedicate the amount of time I want to to this blog for the next month or so, but after the tests are over, I’ll basically be free. Until finals, that is….
February was an interesting month for me. I had a fair share of ups and downs this month. For one, classes are getting tougher every day. On the bright side, I read more books than I normally do. I guess that doesn’t say much because I only read 1-2 books a month. That’s beside the point, though. It felt great to be able to (somewhat) read at the speed I used to a couple years ago.
Another good news is that I finally found a drawing style that fits me. For years now I’ve been struggling to find an art style that I liked and now I think I found it. Of course, a person’s style of drawing constantly changes, but I finally found a starting point. I’ve been drawing nonstop for the past couple days now.
Time certainly flies when you’re too busy to look at the clock. I thought 2017 just started and now we’re already a month in. I must have hibernated for a week because there’s no way it’s already February.
On top of the fact that this month went by unnaturally fast, I didn’t blog or read that much. I’m both in a writer’s block and a reading slump. It’s a double whammy. Please excuse my lousy blogging last month. Hopefully this month will be better.
Today is the last day of December. Today is the last day of 2016. I don’t remember doing anything in December. It’s all a blur to me.
However, despite the fact it doesn’t seem like I did anything this month, I actually read a lot more books than I expected. On the other hand, the majority of them were graphic novels and novellas.
I didn’t know what to post on the last day of 2016. I was thinking about doing something sentimental or extravagant, but then I realized that I just want this year to end. So I decided to just do what I normally do at the end of a month. A wrap up.
November is already over. What have I done this month? Absolutely nothing.
Actually, I take that back. I have done a couple things.
First, I didn’t procrastinate on *most* of the things I needed to do this month. I finished Empire of Storms (which I have been hesitant to finish because I never want it to end) and I started watching Stranger Things. I’ve heard so many great things about the TV show that I had to give it a try. I just started it, but hopefully I’ll finish it sometime in December.
Second, I actually watched a movie when it first came out. For some reason, when I want to watch a movie, I wait a year before watching it online. I never go to the movie theatre, and I have no clue why I don’t. For those who haven’t watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, you got to watch it soon because it’s really good. Just don’t expect it to be like the Harry Potter movies.
I have to admit, out of all the months I’ve been blogging, I’ve been the least active this month. With so much going on, I barely had time to read or blog. Now that this crazy month is finally over, I’ll *hopefully* have a little bit more free time to do the things I love.
School has started this month and I’m finally getting back into the swing of things. It took awhile to get used to the new schedule, but I think I got it down now.
I haven’t gotten much reading done this month. To be completely honest, I only read one book. I’m currently read two other books right now that I’ll hopefully finish both of them soon.
