Wow, what a year 2017 has been! It’s definitely had it’s ups and downs.
Reading-wise, December was an okay month. Thanks to the little break I have, I’ve had more time to catch up on my reading. However, I spent most of the time just sleeping (because who doesn’t like sleep?).
It’s weird to think that this is the last day of the year…
I hope everyone’s 2017 was fantastic and here’s to an even better year! ❤
2017 is coming to an end… and thank goodness for that. It’s been a rough year, to say the least, but that didn’t stop me from reading some pretty freaking awesome books. I didn’t read as much as I wanted to this year, but that just means I’m going to try extra hard in 2018 to get to all the books I want to read.
Too many books, not enough time, am I right?
It’s Christmas where I live, but for others it might already be the day after. Merry Christmas to all who celebrates it! Happy Kwanzaa! Happy Hanukkah! Happy holidays!
This year was a roller coaster ride to say the least, and I think we all are in need of some positive spirit.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful time spending quality time with their family and loved ones. My older sister, who I haven’t seen in a while, finally came home and I’ve been able to spend some time and catch up with her. Thankfully with technology, I’ve been able to communicate with her, but it doesn’t feel the same as talking and spending time with her in person.
Thanks to fall break, I was finally able to rest and catch up on some reading. And by catch up, I mean start reading one book. I don’t think I will ever be able to catch up on all the reading I want to do. But, I mean, what’s new?
Blogging wise, I think I did okay towards the end of this month. Because I had a week off from school, I had a lot more time on my hands. I decided (and I’m not sure why I decided this in the spur of the moment) to try and publish a post everyday that week Monday through Friday. Miraculously, I achieved it. However, with the quantity of my posts increasing, my spelling and grammar quality definitely decreased, and I apologize for that.
Look what’s new. I didn’t read a lot of books this month. I feel like every time school starts I stop reading books because I don’t have enough time. I’m sure if I stopped procrastinating on all my assignments I would be able to find some time to read but I don’t. I have no excuses. I need to be better with managing my time more wisely.
To be completely honest, I totally forgot to do a monthly wrap up and now I’m quickly trying to type this out before it get’s too late. I blame it on the schoolwork. The amount of homework my teachers have given me this weekend is so overwhelming, so I’ve been doing nothing but working these past couple days.
Hopefully next week will be better, but we’ll see about that.
Homework aside, I think I had an okay blogging month. I didn’t do anything super drastic but I wasn’t able to read any books. Actually, I was able to read during September but I haven’t finished anything that I’ve started.
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.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a haul. Probably because I’ve been trying to be better at buying less books. Did that work? Kind of….
Actually, not really. I try to limit myself to one physical book a month (if I buy zero, even better) to save some money but they are all MY PRECIOUSSSSSSSSSS.
Also, I know this is totally irrelevant but it’s late at night when I’m writing this and it’s raining really hard and I’m kind of scared my windows will break even though I know they probably won’t. Keep in mind I live in a place that is lucky to see any weather other than hot, extra hot, heat stroke, and crispy.
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?)
