May’s Moments of the Month: March // The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Month (but Love, Simon and Gay Music!)

March was a really tough month.

It had a lot of ups and downs? Most notably was my mental health. It started out great, got worse, and then kind of got to a “meh” position again. But there were also little things scattered throughout it that made it more bearable!!!

(LOVE SIMON LOVE SIMON LOVE SIMON.)

It was also the month that 1) I blogged WAAAAY less (and it was so so relaxing omg) and 2) a lot of things happened. Just like, in general. In life, in reading, and so much more.

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!!!

1-Year Blogiversary Q&A (Part 2)!! ft. My Writing Wishlist, Me Being a Mayngel, and Also, a Lot of Mangoes (of Course)

Welcome to Part 2 of “WHAT IS WITH YOUR OBSESSION WITH MANGOES.”

Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly that, but it really seems like it since all of you just HAVE TO ASK about mangoes. (But it’s okay, it’s actually what I’ve brainwashed everyone to do so it’s understandable.)

After I posted PART 1 of the Q&A, I got even more questions?? So this post ended up being longer than expected, but whatever!! We all know you love reading me ramble excessively about myself. And mangoes.

I had a lot of fun answering the questions to all of these, and thank you again to everyone who sent in one question or three!! Hopefully I answered your question(s) satisfactorily.

(I probably didn’t.)

1-Year Blogiversary Q&A (Part 1)!! ft. Cute Elephants, Unpopular Opinions, and Lots of Mangoes (to No One’s Surprise)

Apparently everyone is very inquisitive about me???

To be fair, I DID kind of shove all of you to submit a some questions. But in total, you all probably asked around… oh wait, sorry, I forgot for a second there that I was too lazy to count how many questions there were.*

But you asked a lot of questions (because I forced you to), and today I’ll be answering them!! What a surprise.

Of course, I’m really kind and will be sparing your eyes from reading TOO many words, and the Q&A will be split into two parts. Which means, if you still want, you can still submit a few questions, since there’ll be a Part 2!! Or you could like, not. And miss all your chances to ask me whatever you wanted.

*Just kidding, it was 50.
