Monthly TBR: March 2016 + *BURSTS THROUGH THE DOOR* I'M BACK, BLOGGAHS11:32 AM
Okay so I'm basically a damp piece of end bread. A few weeks ago, I warned you all I would be taking a brief hiatus. A small break....
Okay so I'm basically a damp piece of end bread. A few weeks ago, I warned you all I would be taking a brief hiatus. A small break. I'd be gone a week, grab a taco, recharge, come back. All would be well. You'd barely notice I was gone.
BUT ALAS MY SMALL VACATION TURNED INTO A FULL BLOWN HOLIDAY! I WAS GONE NEARLY A MONTH WITH FEW UPDATES ON MY PART, AND MY BLOGGING EMAIL ACCOUNT BLEW UP WITH OVER 400 EMAILS, AND I'M SO SO SO SO SORRY I'VE NOT COMMENTED ON ANYONE'S POSTS LATELY *sobs*
To those who didn't notice I was gone? haha *hides my blog content and their dates* I've been here the whole time. It's okay. Carry on ignoring me as before. I'm not a neglectful blogger at ALL.
Kind sirs and Queens, I am so emphatically apologetic for neglecting to reply to your lovely comments on all of my posts. For the past month (or longer), I'll read comments and not respond to them. I'll respond to a few, but as the post sits there and accumulates attention, I stop showing up to thank you for dropping some words in response to my post. I am so sorry. I hate when I go to a blog, take the time to write my thoughts, and then I'm not even acknowledged. Believe me, kind readers, I'm seeing everything you say. I read it, love it, appreciate the heck out of it, want more of it! I'm sorry for being a hypocritical blogger. There are loads of excuses I could throw at you (for example: I have no time! I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY! I just forgot to respond!), and they'd all be true mostly, but in the long and short of the matter I'm just lazy. I saw your comment, was like "thank you, beautiful land mermaid." and then I just didn't respond.
In short, I am sorry. Please bear with me. I'm working on being less of a hypocrite, and treating all of you as I would wish to be treated. No matter what you are appreciated and noticed.
Second apology: sorry this post is gonna be so damn tootin long.
LIFE OF A BLOGGER
I'VE NOT BEEN STARING OUT THE WINDOW AND CONTEMPLATING MY CRAPPY FUTURE AND DOING NOTHING ELSE THIS WHOLE TIME tho there was some of that. I DID HOWEVER
- Celebrated my birthday. I TURNED 20 YEARS OLD. My birthday kind of came and went. And I spent it at some college function that had slide shows about the Saudi Arabian education system and they served rice and chicken or lamb... definitely a unique birthday. This age is dank but the celebration was rather lackluster.
-Created a Society6 store. Yeah so this is fun! I'm designing stuff with book and television quotes and references. I don't care if people aren't buying my stuff. It's just really enjoyable to create something and see it on a tote bag or a shower curtain.
- I've discovered that I'm not so much a bookworm as I am a story-holic. I like STORIES. IN ANY FORM. So while I do love reading, I kind of swayed towards netflix for the month of February (got addicted to Jane The Virgin, and Fuller House). BUT I MISSED WORDS THAT CAST SPELLS UPON THE IMAGINATION SO I'M BACK!
FEBRUARY GOALS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Well would you look at that! I FAILED AGAIN AND MORE SEVERELY! I've noticed a pattern in my life- if I have a plan, my brain automatically goes REJECT THAT. So I didn't read all that I wanted to (or as much as I wanted to). But I did read two of the books! So there's something! :) ...also I'm currently reading Clockwork Prince.
AND HERE ARE ALL THE BOOKS I READ. I definitely could have done better. My personal goal is to read at least five books a month, so I fell short. Honestly, guys, February was just not my month. But these were some great books. All winners for me, and I want them on my bookshelf!
I'm going to try something different this month. I'm just going to read whatever the hell I want and not try to stick with a list Past Me created. No matter what I read, I DO want to try and read more of The Lunar Chronicles series, and The Infernal Devices trilogy, and a classic novel. I got to chip some of those away.
WHAT DO YOU PLAN ON READING THIS MONTH
And goodness, what have you been up to!? I'm so out of the loop! What'd you read this month? What's happening in your lives? I want to hear it all, good buddies!
