May’s Moments of the Month: September // Still Suffering From School…

Hello…!

I know you’re probably sick of me appearing every month to “school is overwhelming me and I don’t have time to blog” only to disappear for a few weeks, but surprise! I’m here to do that again! (Many days much later than when I thought/hoped wanted to. Very on brand.)

I wish I had actually interesting things that happened in September so I could talk about them, but there’s really next to nothing… Very sorry to disappoint anyone who might have thought I went offline to do cool fun things. This month, though, I swear I will actually post and be interesting!! Hopefully this miserable reading slump I’m in will END and I will find some freedom from school.

May’s Moments of the Month: August // Back to School + a Reading Slump

Long time no see!

 

Welcome to my shortest monthly recap ever, because school pretty much took over everything and I genuinely have nothing to talk about. I apologize for disappearing from my blog for probably the tenth time this year, but, to repeat myself like I will for this whole post, school really is just taking everything away from me!

August was not that great, considering the whole “school is making me want to sink into the earth and never face the sunlight again” thing. I slumped badly with reading and blogging (and writing, but that’s kind of been ongoing…), and I’m so sad that I haven’t been keeping up with those two things but at the same time I know I really just am too overwhelmed.

May’s Moments of the Month: July // No More Summer but Good Books & Writing!

Summer break is basically over for me…

…and I am so tired of time passing so quickly this year!! Every month seems to pass by even faster than the last, and I wish everything would just slow down, especially now that I have to go back to school. Despite that, July was a pretty decent month for me, since I was able to read some good books and I also got to generate a lot of new writing for the first time in a while. It was filled with a lot of dread over summer ending though, which I feel very intensely now that I have less than a week before my school year starts again!

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.
