Goodbye 2018: The End of Year Book Survey, ft. Favorite Books, Disappointing Reads, and Stats and Graphs!!

[screams] I LOVE WRITING THESE POSTS SO MUCH!!!

Every time it’s the end of the year I get so excited because I know I’m going to be able to write these super fun, amazing book wrap-ups. I mean, formatting all the book covers is a pain, but talking about my year??? In books???? So good.

Today I’m linking up with the amazing End of Year Book Survey by The Perpetual Page Turner and answering a bunch of questions about my 2018 in books! (Not doing all the questions, though, because this post is already SUPER long.) I’ll also be talking about some reading stats that I kept track of by myself, with the help of some graphs!!

(Shh I know it’s not the end of the year anymore but it still counts!!!)

UPDATE: This post ended up taking about 5 hours to make and I am exhausted please show this post and ME some love I feel dead.

May’s Moments of the Month: December // Stressful Midterms, a Lot of Books, and a Pretty Okay End to the Year!!

December was… interesting.

There were a lot of things that happened last month, and a majority of them were fortunately good! Overall I feel like it was just crammed with A Lot: midterms, winter break, rushing to finish my Goodreads challenge, dance.

And it wasn’t a bad way to end the year either! Even though I finished like three books in the last hour of the year, and still had breakdowns, it was definitely not the worst way 2018 could have ended, and for that I’m thankful.

Goodbye 2018: Seeing How Well I Did on My Goals for the Year and Making New Resolutions for 2019!!

In case you didn’t know, I love to make goals!

I make them for every month, and I won’t say how successful I am (because I am very bad at them), but they’re always really fun for me to come up with and also hold me accountable! Even when I forget about them until the end of the month!

And this time, it’s no different: I have completely forgotten all of the goals I made for 2018 until this moment, when I look back on them. Like I said, love to make them, not the best at keeping them.

Today I’m going to be reviewing my 2018 goals and making new ones for 2019, aka looking at how badly I failed all my goals for the year and pathetically trying again for the new year. Proud of me!

Goodbye 2018: Things I Accomplished (and Also Unfortunately Didn’t) This Year!

Hi, I’m May and sometimes my self-worth depends on my productivity. 

I love opening up posts with lines that are way too personal!!!

Okay, but I’m like actually 100% serious about this. I know it’s bad and it’s a really destructive mindset to have but I’m working on it!!

Today, as a part of me attempting to improve, I’m writing a completely unbiased post about what I have and haven’t been able to accomplish this year. I’m not judging myself for what I couldn’t do, because I deserve to be good to myself!

(Also this is another short post?? Who am I??? Where did over-1k-word-blog-post May go??)

Goodbye 2018: My Most Favorite and Least Favorite Moments of the Year!

So, it’s the end of the year, which means…

A bunch of year-end wrap-up posts that I couldn’t be more excited about!

This is the first post in my series Goodbye 2018, and I always enjoy writing up these types of posts! They’re so much fun for me and I love reflecting over the year and it makes me nostalgic, I guess.

Today, I’ll be talking about my favorite and least favorite moments of the year. Might get a little sappy, might get a little depressed. Maybe both. Who knows.
