May’s Moments of the Month: October // School Stress, Failed TBR, No NaNo Prep, but… Halloween Candy? Book Fest?

Basically, October was a mess.

I had such high expectations for it and for myself, so of course, I didn’t meet them!!

The month as a whole was better than September, but still not great either. I had a lot of breakdowns, read only half my TBR, and didn’t finish prepping for NaNoWriMo. I didn’t publish three posts that I was supposed to, and I hardly commented or replied to comments.

But I guess some good things were Halloween candy and going to a book fest????

(Wow I LOVE coming up with only two good things about October.)

Writerly Update (My First in Forever??): Introducing My WIP and Characters!! Featuring Snippets! Aesthetics! A Mess!!

I am very nervous today because I’m… introducing my WIP???

Some people have actually been asking me if I’ve done an introductory post to it yet (since I’ve mentioned my WIP a couple of times now) so uh here you go? I’m honestly really flattered you want to know about my WIP!!

But also why. It’s a mess.

Anyways, I haven’t done a Writerly Update™ in so long and frankly it’s because I just don’t write as much as I used to, but NaNoWriMo is happening next month, a WIP has been in the works for months now, and I’m finally ready to share my WIP with you all! So here it is and I hope it sounds vaguely interesting at least??

May’s Moments of the Month: September // Spiraling Mental Health, Some Reading, Not a Lot of Blogging, and Lice… Again!

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 1.7k words, what else happened in August!!! I know this is a horrible intro but please just go with it my brain is tiredt.

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

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.)
