May’s Moments of the Month: June // It is Summer and I am Still Stressed

June was basically filled with existential dread for me.

No way this year has gone by so quickly already… no way practically half my summer is gone already… I appreciate the freedom and relaxation that summer brings (or Should bring) but wow I think I am just in a constant state of stress at this point because I did not feel that relaxed at all.

June was clearly a bit stressful for me despite it being summer. Life Stuff is just so pressuring, not to mention all the pressures I put on myself! I wasn’t even able to achieve that much escapism through reading since I didn’t enjoy a lot of what I read in June and I also didn’t write… I am struggling big time basically.

May’s Moments of the Month: May // I’m Finally Done with School!

May was surprisingly… not too bad!

Even though I was dead for most of it because school decided it was a great idea to murder all the students in the last few weeks of the year, I survived it in the end. And lots of good things actually happened to me throughout the month, things that I’m very grateful for and excited about! And though I wasn’t as active online because of school, I had a lot of fun buddy reading with friends.

Overall May was a pretty decent month (and it better have been, because it was “my” month or whatever idk I hate making this joke but I can’t help myself we’re carrying on now), but I’m definitely ready for summer.

May’s Moments of the Month: April // Did Anything Actually Happen?

April honestly did not feel real.

I think time in general does not feel real now, but last month literally feels like it was a month of just Void. I don’t know if anyone else had the same experience or if it was just me, but as I sat writing this post I was just like wow. Absolutely nothing happened!

Anyway, it’s a bit funny to say that I’m here to give a recap of the month when I just said it felt like nothing happened, but here I am giving a recap of April! (I think the most exciting part of this month was the books I read, because they were very good and also at this point I am nothing but existential dread and escapism through fiction.)

May’s Moments of the Month: March // It’s Still Rough but Getting Better!

Hello… I’m back! For real!

Sorry if my last post gave you a scare (though I think I actually fooled myself into feeling more motivated to do more blogging things again). I personally think it was a fun way to start off April, which I’m hoping will be a good month! :D

Today I’m here to recap the month and update you all on how things have been for me, since it’s been a while! Overall, March was a bit of a rough month for me, but not too terrible. It honestly was just the first half that was miserable, because of school, but later I found some comfort in books and writing.

May’s Moments of the Month: February // Texas Winter Storm but a New Favorite Book!

This month was exhausting.

If my accidental posting hiatus was any indication, I was so tired in February. I’ve been so busy with school, and when I don’t have schoolwork, I am just numbly lying in my bed on my phone. I will say that I had a better mental health month (thank you for all the warm wishes, by the way!!), and there were some good things that happened! Mainly getting to read enjoyable books and also finding a new absolute favorite. But amongst that was a winter storm that left me without power for days and a permeating, overwhelming exhaustion so… not quite the best.

I was very fortunate during the winter storm, but so many others were not, so if you have the means to, maybe consider donating to some TX mutual aid groups: AustinHoustonDallas!
