May’s Moments of the Month: January // Be Honest: It Was Terrible

What a sucky start to 2021!

I don’t know if anyone else felt the same way or if the universe spared you from it, but January was not very good at all. My low mental health from December never improved, and going back to school meant even more stress piled on me. I can feel myself losing reading and blogging motivation already, and we’re!! only a month in to the year!!

There was one thing that made my January slightly better, though, and that was surprisingly writing? I think I am more inclined to write when I am more mentally unstable so, you know… at least there’s a positive to bad mental health!

May’s Moments of the Month: December // I Finished My School Semester & Read A Lot

Happy new year!

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to 2021 already. I’m praying that January is going to be a much better month for me than December was, because December was… not my best month. School and finals drained me a lot (unsurprisingly), and even over my break, I was kind of useless.

Luckily in December, I was able to read a lot of books, finish my GR challenge, and write more blog posts than usual!! But I accidentally developed some bad habits during the month (I am… so sleep-deprived…). Hopefully I can fix them and my deteriorating mental health this month!

May’s Moments of the Month: November // I Read a Lot of Books and Won NaNoWriMo!

I… actually did things this month?

Who am I!! Somehow I was not an aimless husk of myself floating above everything else and barely taking in anything. I truly have no idea what actually drove me to accomplish two big goals I had, and especially kind of near the same time over my school break?? But I guess it’s just the nearing Christmas Magic making everything possible!! (This is a joke. I love Christmas but not that much.)

Anyway, today I’m here to talk about all the things I was actually able to do during November. I can’t believe I’m saying it, but I had a GOOD month! I read lots of amazing books, wrote more than I expected, and had fun doing absolutely nothing to celebrate my birthday. The slump I talked about in October? Gone. Nonexistent. And I’m very glad to see it go!!

May’s Moments of the Month: October // I Lacked in Pretty Much Every Aspect of My Life

The title of this post is not clickbait, unfortunately.

October was… a strange month, to say the least. It was another one of those months that felt like it somehow went by super quickly but also dragged on forever.

I was pretty much in a slump in every area of my life, from reading to blogging to writing to my mental health. I guess the only thing I truly excelled at was watching TV, which I don’t think… qualifies as a skill. Here’s to hoping November will be slightly better—it is my birthday month after all!!

May’s Moments of the Month: September // School is Still Killing Me

…Long time, no see!

I said in my August recap post that it was very likely that I’d take a hiatus in September, and, as I always am, I was right!

I’ve been having a good time off from posting, and though I didn’t catch up on comments/posts like I’d hoped I would, this month was definitely better than August in terms of my health! Which I’m going to consider a win.

(We will ignore the lack of reading, the lack of writing, the lack of sleep…)
