May’s Moments of the Month: February // Deteriorating Mental Health, Failing at Everything… But Reading Motivation??

The title of this post makes it sound like I had a REALLY bad February, but it was honestly just a bad February.

I really did not have a good month mental-health-wise, or writing-wise, or productivity-in-general-wise. But I blame it all on the bad health which can all be blamed on my mind and my stupid brain.

But some good things DID happen besides that?? I mean the bad mental health part kinda overshadows everything else, but there were still some good things. Like reading motivation. And Black Panther. And the Olympics.

I don’t know, I just hope March is a WHOLE lot better.

The Illusion of a “Perfect Life” in the Online World & the Pressure to Appear “Perfect” Online // Taking a Weird Break??

No one is perfect.

I know that’s really obvious!! And you’ve probably heard it a thousand times in consoling tones when you make a grievous mistake, or when you’re trying to reassure yourself about other people doing stupid things.

But I feel like there’s often a certain pressure to be perfect, or a perception that we are in the online world, and we forget that we, nor others, are NOT perfect.

This is something I’ve been thinking about for some time now, because of things that I’ve noticed in the behavior of myself and others. And I’ve also noticed some negative effects as well, so that’s why I decided to talk about it today!!!

The Rising Author Tag // Talking About My Writing (?!), A Few Snippets (Ew), and a Short Intro to My WIP’s Main Character

In a surprising turn of events, I am doing a tag, and even more surprising: IT’S ABOUT WRITING.

Talking about my WIP??? Sharing (bad) snippets??? More likely than you think!!!

But seriously, I’m a bit nervous to be doing this even though no one will read this or care for… no reason? I mean, I’ve talked about my writing in the past but recently things havne’t been going so well soooo.

And I’ve also gotten very personal with my writing! My current WIP’s MC (WHICH YOU’LL GET A SHORT DESCRIPTION OF WOW) is really similar to me* and I have a problem with sharing things about me. But I will do it because she’s really cool, cooler than I’ll ever be.

So here’s a long post about random things concerning my writing!!

*Except she’s extroverted and NO.

9 Things in Books that Make Me Run Towards Them with Open Arms aka What Compels Me to Read Certain Books

So, to the surprise of many, I actually, you know, LIKE books.

I’m getting more and more critical of the books I read, and you’ll see me handing out more 3-star ratings than 5-star (I HAVEN’T READ ANY 5-STAR BOOKS THIS YEAR YET HELP).

But?? All is not completely lost yet???? There are still MANY things in books that I absolutely love to read, and so today, I decided to talk about them! Aka me screaming about my favorite things and then demanding recommendations.

(Also! All the book covers link to the book’s page on Goodreads!!)

Why Bloggers Should Be Appreciated // Showing All the Blogger Love and What You Can Do to Support Them!!

Obviously, bloggers are amazing people (seeing as I am one).

Or every blogger could suck and I would be the exception?? BUT that’s not true at all, because the blogging community is truly wonderful, and there are so many fantastic people in it, who post great things and are just great human beings in general.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day and all, and we’re supposed to “show love” and all that mushy crap, I decided to talk about WHY bloggers should be supported & how to do it!!

I feel like SO MANY TIMES, people don’t appreciate bloggers enough, especially in the book blogging realm with authors & publishers.

**Also!!! A note to check out Marie’s post that was published today coincidentally on the same topic as this. IT’S VERY GOOD.**
