May’s Moments of the Month: April // Studying Took Over Everything

I disappeared yet again… what a surprise! 

I can’t say I didn’t expect this to happen, especially since at the beginning of the year I was like, “There are going to be lots of big upcoming life events this year that will make me less active.” But after I planned out my posts months ahead, I was really hopeful that I would be able to maintain some activity throughout the busier parts!

Clearly, that didn’t happen. I would say I’m sorry, but I’m trying not to apologize for doing things that I needed to do. I disappeared because of exams that I had to study for, and doing that sucked up all my energy and I barely did anything substantial throughout the month.

May’s Moments of the Month: March // Finally, Some Relaxation!!

Isn’t it crazy how we’re already going into the first quarter of the year?

Maybe it’s because I have Big Personal Life Things coming up in May, but I feel like the beginning of the year has whizzed by and I can barely catch my breath. And part of the reason March passed by so quickly for me was because—I did nothing!!

Okay, I did do things. I did a lot of things, in fact, like read and labor over school assignments and even WRITE… But I mostly remember March as a month where I mostly got to rest. And thank god for that! I’ve really needed it.

May’s Moments of the Month: February // Lots of Stress but… Lots of Books!

Hi everyone, happy March!!

This post is coming a little later than I’d wanted (but I had exams this week so please forgive). Even though I had high hopes for February, I quickly realized that 1) I am as untrustworthy as ever when it comes to meeting my own expectations and 2) February is way too short for me to feel like I accomplished what I wanted to.

For the most part, February was filled with lots of stress over schoolwork, with deadline after deadline and assignments piling up one after the other. But somehow, I still managed to read a lot, and that was the highlight of my month! It’s the cheesiest thing to say but I really do feel like I’m falling in love with reading again, even though I never really fell out of love.

May’s Moments of the Month: January // I Return to School and a Reading Slump

Happy new year!!

Am I still allowed to say that a month into 2022? It does not feel like we are already 1/12 of the way through the year. I’m making up my own reality simply because this one just does not make sense. January could not have been that short!!!

Unfortunately, though, January WAS very short and as a result I suffered a lot… (not really but you know what I mean). I returned to school, which was very boring and terrible, and I also returned to a reading slump, which was very boring and terrible as well. I said I wanted consistency in 2022… Well, I guess this is consistency? New year, same me?

(I don’t know what I’m saying anymore. I’m very fatigued and you all know that I am up at an ungodly hour writing this intro. Carry on.)

May’s Moments of the Month: December // I Got COVID but Also… I Read a Lot!

Happy new year, everyone!!

2022 feels even less real than every new year, because it means we’ve been dealing with this pandemic for 3 years? No! I refuse to believe it!

To address the elephant in the room: I completed my isolation for COVID and am almost completely asymptomatic, and I recovered really well! Thank you all for your well wishes, it means a lot. I hope you all remain healthy in 2022!!

Despite the whole catching COVID thing, and finals hell week, December was a strangely good month for me. Honestly I think isolation did something to me, maybe because since I had nothing to do, I ended up doing things that made me happy!
