May’s Moments of the Month: August // Not a Lot of Books, but a Lot of Blogging, and Also School Stress!! (Very Fun)

August was a chaotic month and I’m SO GLAD it’s over.

I thought I could be NOT stressed out by school and I… completely failed. Not to mention the fact that I did not read the 9 books I planned to, or plot out as much as my WIP as I thought I could, or actually interact with bloggers like I’d expected to.

Me? Being productive? Not as likely as you think.

(Just kidding I’m sure none of you thought I would be productive in August.)

But even though I literally just summed up my whole month in two sentences, I’m still going to talk about, in 1684 words, what else happened in August!!! I know this is a horrible intro but please just go with it.

Things I’m Loving at the Moment: Books (and Book Mail??), Writing, and Thai Everything (…Specifically Thai Food)

School is giving me a rough time, so: some positivity!

I haven’t really been in the best mental health space (ever since school started, to no one’s surprise), and I’m trying really hard to stay positive, because if I succumb to too much negativity… then I’m going to slip into even worse mental health even faster.

So today, to combat all the stress and anxiety and oncoming depression, I’ve decided to talk about a few things I’m loving at the moment!

I was going to do a “things I’m hating” post and just vent, but I think this post would be more enjoyable to read and write, and hearing about what YOU GUYS are loving at the moment would be really great too!! And I already think negative things a lot so why not try to balance it out with positivity, yeah?

(Aka the venting post would have been more than 2,000 words long and no one would have read but ANYWAYS.)

#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!!

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!
