#AmCurrently Update: the Most Disgusting Lice, School, Weird Book Slump, and Some Actual Writing??

Since I’ve been a bit absent, I decided to do a bit of an update on my life!

And no, the lice part is not just clickbait. I really did have lice. And it was one of the MOST DISGUSTING, UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE.

BUT lice isn’t the only thing that’s happened to me recently (and definitely not the only thing I want to talk about). A lot of New Things have been going on and I decided, why not make a little update post about it?? And anyways I always love reading these kinds of posts by other bloggers to see a little bit more of what they’re doing and I’ve always wanted to write one myself.

So. Here’s a little update about some things currently going on in my life, which you hopefully will find interesting!!

ARC Review: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab // A Disappointing Book by a Fav Author… But Still Enjoyable (& Creepy)!

I mean… you can’t love ALL the books from your favorite author, right?

(Shhh I’m still trying to console myself over the fact that I was disappointed by a Schwab book.)

I rarely read middle grade novels, save for Rick Riordan and other favorite authors. I really hoped I’d love this one, since again, Victoria Schwab is one of my favorite authors ever. But the thing about this book is that it was good, but it could be so much better.

It was enjoyable! I had fun! I was engaged! I was never bored! But there was just one major thing that bothered me the whole time and I couldn’t stop thinking about it while reading.

A Peek Into My Trip to Japan and Thailand: Really Hot Places, Family and Friends and Fun, and GOOD THAI FOOD

If you didn’t notice, I was missing from the blog all of July!!

And that’s because I was adventuring (not really) in Japan and Thailand, where it was really hot and I wanted to shrivel up and never come out of the air-conditioned building ever again.

Anyways, it was a LOT of fun!!! I took a lot of photos and these are only a few of them, but I wanted to share them with you to 1) document my trip and 2) show you how cool these places are and hopefully convince you to visit them one day if you can!!

May’s Moments of the Month: July // A Really Hot, but Great Vacation, Lots of Good Books, Plus Pain and Rashes!!

I was on a blog hiatus this month, and it was so much fun.

Not sure if it was fun BECAUSE I took a hiatus, or it was fun and I additionally took a hiatus? But either a way, I was on hiatus, because I was on vacation, and it was fun! And I’m super glad to be back, I feel so refreshed and ready to get back into blogging.

The majority of this month was super good to me and I’m really grateful that my last month of summer wasn’t horrible. I read and got a lot of books, had fun with my family, and was mostly relaxed!

Really important note: So I wrote the majority of this post before I knew this, but… my mom’s cancer has returned after over 5 years of being cancer-free. I don’t know what this means for my online presence (especially since I know being active online helps me distract myself from things) but any kind of support would be appreciated. 💛

May’s Moments of the Month: June // End of Pride… But Vacation in Tokyo and Thailand (and a Three-Week Hiatus)!!

Your favorite blogger is going on vacation!!!

Just kidding. About the favorite blogger part. Not the vacation part.

I know I’ve said next to nothing about this, but today I’m on a flight to Japan, where we’ll stay for five days, and then Thailand after! This will be my last post until I get back on the 23rd. (Fun fact: I thought we were leaving on the 3rd but apparently not.)

But June was SUCH A GOOD MONTH. I was in a depression period for most of it, yeah, but really great books helped me out!! (I’m definitely not slumping anymore which makes me SO happy.) I also did some writing and hung out with little kids so all of that = great for my mental health!
