Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2016

Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2016

January 2016: busy busy making plans… Was January really only 31 days? Because it felt like a lifetime. Mostly in a good way, I guess – I’ve been keeping really busy at work and spending my free time however the hell I want – but yeah, I decided to give myself a little break from blogging. I do feel recharged though, and hopefully February will be better. January Reads Books Read: The Mistake by Elle Kennedy A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E.

Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2015

Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2015

December 2015: and so the year ends! Happy New Year!!! Oh my gosh, 2015 flew by. In some ways. The last half certainly. The first half was rotten, and there were some rotteny things later on too, but overall I’m ending the year on a positive note. December was a super fun, but super busy month. So not much reading, a shit ton of movies, an absolute mountain of food, and – of course – PRESENTS.

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2015

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2015

November 2015: more highs and lows November did not really change the iffy trend of October. Again there were good things – happy times at work, TWO biffle visits, reliving my anime and video game feels – but also bad. One of my uncles passed away, and though it was expected and I barely knew him, my mood spiraled. So I did miss two blog posts this month and I stayed off of social media quite a bit. Luckily, I am pretty well out of the funk by now. November Reads Books Read: Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler The Trouble with Destiny by Lauren Morrill […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: October 2015

Monthly Wrap-Up: October 2015

October 2015: a mixed bag Boy am I glad this month is over. We had high highs and low lows. The month started off like shit – dramatic news in the real world and string of meh reads notwithstanding, my computer crashed and was out of order for 11 days. It cost me a lot of money and a lot of stressful nights to fix it. (This also explains why I missed 5 posts this month.) It’s also been busy and stressful at work. But there were some fun events in the second half of the month that managed to lift my spirits. So I’m […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: September 2015

September 2015: fun times and good news ♥ I can’t believe it’s October already, because September just FLEW BY. But it was absolutely a very good month. I got some great news at work (see below), Kasie West stopped by the blog, I’ve been reading REALLY good books, I got one of the MOST EXCITING ARCs EVER, I’ve been more sociable and happy, I won an exciting THING… Let’s hope this streak continues!

Monthly Wrap-Up: August 2015

August 2015: Vacation time!! August was a month of social calls and general happiness. I may not have been online as much, but I spent a lot of time with family, celebrating my birthday, and finally going on my long awaited vacation 🙂 I am back now and it was wonderful. But more on that later.

Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2015

Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2015

July 2015: which was busy, busy, busy. Phew. July is over. Good thing too, because I am drained – and this means my vacation is fast approaching! 26 days! I cannot wait. But overall I feel like July was a good month. I accomplished great things at work – particularly making a good impression on the CEO – and it feels like I’m finally hitting my stride there. Online, I’m feeling a little bit iffy again lately, but I’m taking a break from Twitter for a bit so hopefully I can get over it. And now it’s my birth month, yayyyyy! July Reads Books Read: […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: June 2015

Monthly Wrap-Up: June 2015

June 2015: in which I made some blog changes! June was a busy, busy month. I got more comfortable at work, but it’s been pretty time consuming, and all of that together with other pressures on blogging led to me resolving to make some changes to the blog. But, it’s a good thing. I already feel much more relaxed, and I’m having fun making plans for my reduced blogging schedule and all the free time I’ll have left over. AND, of course, I read some awesome books. June Reads Books Read: The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord Tangled Webs by Lee Bross […]
