Am Currently Update: What I’ve Been Up to During My Accidental Internet Disappearance

Well… guess who’s back!

I keep apologizing, but I truly am sorry that I keep returning every month or so after weeks of silence. But I’ve gotten a few of my deadlines out of the way and I’m slowly approaching the end of my semester, and I’m slowly getting back into being a bit more active in the book internet world. Things are going to be different this time, I swear!!!

Since it’s been a while, I thought I’d do an overall current update on what’s going on for me right now rather than a monthly recap. Again, not much has been happening because school has taken over everything, but there were a few things I thought I could talk about!

May’s Moments of the Month: September // Still Suffering From School…

Hello…!

I know you’re probably sick of me appearing every month to “school is overwhelming me and I don’t have time to blog” only to disappear for a few weeks, but surprise! I’m here to do that again! (Many days much later than when I thought/hoped wanted to. Very on brand.)

I wish I had actually interesting things that happened in September so I could talk about them, but there’s really next to nothing… Very sorry to disappoint anyone who might have thought I went offline to do cool fun things. This month, though, I swear I will actually post and be interesting!! Hopefully this miserable reading slump I’m in will END and I will find some freedom from school.

May’s Moments of the Month: August // Back to School + a Reading Slump

Long time no see!

 

Welcome to my shortest monthly recap ever, because school pretty much took over everything and I genuinely have nothing to talk about. I apologize for disappearing from my blog for probably the tenth time this year, but, to repeat myself like I will for this whole post, school really is just taking everything away from me!

August was not that great, considering the whole “school is making me want to sink into the earth and never face the sunlight again” thing. I slumped badly with reading and blogging (and writing, but that’s kind of been ongoing…), and I’m so sad that I haven’t been keeping up with those two things but at the same time I know I really just am too overwhelmed.

May’s Moments of the Month: July // No More Summer but Good Books & Writing!

Summer break is basically over for me…

…and I am so tired of time passing so quickly this year!! Every month seems to pass by even faster than the last, and I wish everything would just slow down, especially now that I have to go back to school. Despite that, July was a pretty decent month for me, since I was able to read some good books and I also got to generate a lot of new writing for the first time in a while. It was filled with a lot of dread over summer ending though, which I feel very intensely now that I have less than a week before my school year starts again!

My Book Review Writing Process + A Few Tips!

Exposing myself as a Gross Book Nerd on this blog: for the nth time!

This post has been sitting in my drafts for almost a year, but I’ve held off on posting it because I was still figuring out the best way for me to write reviews, and I knew that I wanted more practice before determining what was my “definitive” process. And I can definitely say now that I’m very comfortable with the process I’ve developed for myself!

I don’t consider myself a great reviewer—I’d say I can get my thoughts across coherently, so I meet the bare minimum—so this isn’t like “my process is the best and I’m an excellent reviewer because of it.” But I still wanted to share how I write my reviews anyway because I always found these posts from others helpful in the past!!
