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! ❤
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.
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.
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.
