Hello everyone! Happy December (even though we’re already nearly a week into it), which means we’re one week closer to Christmas (yes, I’m a Christmas b*tch, just like I’m a Halloween b*tch), BUT, more importantly, we’re that much closer to being done with 2020, and while 2021 definitely isn’t going to magically solve all of our problems, I am still ready to be done with this god-forsaken year.
If I’ve been a little quiet recently (I say as if I haven’t been quiet since coming back), it’s because I am currently in the middle of exams and that has been pretty much the center of my life for the past couple of weeks and will continue to be for another 3 days by the time you read this. (I took my very first law school exam earlier today (Thursday) and it was not a fun time, not least because my computer froze in the middle of it 🎉 we love zoom university.) Anyway this is my little fun break because I have some fun reading updates (aka I ACTUALLY read things), and because I wanted to make sure I actually set out some goals for December, since I’ll be done with school this week! So let’s get into it!
So we now have two months left of 2020 and that seems absolutely absurd, but the sooner this godforsaken year is over, the better. I am very upset that Halloween wasn’t a “real” Halloween, but we do what we have to right now and public health is more important than holidays. Anyway, I am currently a ball of stress about school (I have approximately 4 weeks of class left and I feel like I am wildly unprepared for finals, plus I’m currently working on a couple of them), and then there’s the election in two days that I just don’t want to even think about (US folx, PLEASE go vote if you haven’t already, I am literally begging. Vote411 has ballot guides and 866OurVote has amazing resources, including voter protection hotlines if you need help, plus I am more than happy to connect you with any individualized info if you need it! Just send me an email or DM, and I’ll do what I can!)
I’m sure y’all are sick of hearing it, but HAPPY SPOOKY SEASON!!!
Part of me wishes I wasn’t as obsessed with autumn/Halloween as everyone else, but I objectively think it’s the best season and second-best holiday (I am a big Christmas fan), so I don’t really care that I’m in the same camp as everyone else.
Seasons aside, I am so ready for the fall. I’ve been impatiently waiting for the weather to turn, and it FINALLY has. I’m definitely going to miss the trees turning on my old campus, but I’m hoping the city will have at least some places that get really pretty. October means that I’m also approaching the halfway point of my first semester of law school, which feels really surreal. Somehow I lucked out and don’t have any midterms, but that also lowkey stresses me out because it means I don’t have any ways to indicate that I’m actually learning. I do have a writing assignment due tomorrow (well, today, if you’re reading it the day I post this) that I’m freaking out about (am I writing this in part to procrastinate on that? . . . maybe.) ANYWAY. Let’s get to the wrap-up!
Well, it’s already August. When the heck did that happen? I’ve got a lot of things creeping up on me this month, but this post is mostly to talk about July! This last month was a bit of a whirlwind for me, but I still managed to get some good reading done, so let’s get into that!
Hi everyone! June has finally come to its end, even though I certainly feel like summer has just begun. I’m lucky enough that my one of my summer jobs has opened back up, so I’ve been busier the past week than I have been in months, but it’s also so nice to have something to do and a way to make some money. Anyway, June wasn’t a great reading month for me, but again, now that I’m at work more regularly, I actually have more incentive to read because it’s one of the only things that I can do easily in my downtime. But let’s get to this wrap-up!
Hello all! Once again, we’re at the beginning of another month, and we keep marching through 2018. But October means fall and Halloween and sweater weather, so I’m down for this. I can’t wait for the leaves to start changing and for it to finally get chilly and stay chilly (Ohio weather is bizarre since it was perfect fall weather just last week but now it’s 75 again.) Anyways, let’s get into what September was like for me, and what I hope October will be like!
Ah, yes. We’ve come to a close of yet another month. This one was actually okay with me, because my birthday is the last day of August (aka yesterday if you’re reading this the day of posting), so I’m always excited for the end of this month. It also means I am FINALLY back at school with all of my wonderful friends and teammates, who I’ve missed dearly all summer. Before I get too sappy, let’s get on with the reading stuff.
Every time I write one of these, I’m shocked that the month is ending. Will that ever stop guys? I’m sick of feeling like the month passed on, like, 10 days. Anyway, July was actually an okay month for me. It was very (VERY) busy, but in the best way. I feel like I’m a little behind on pretty much everything (reading, posting, reading everyone else’s posts), and I’m really hoping to change that in August, especially early in the month since I won’t have quite as much to do until I have to start packing and leaving for school (how is it already that time again?!) But let’s get into the good stuff, shall we?
I can’t believe yet another month is over. I’ll probably say that every time the month ends, so sorry if it gets a bit repetitive in these posts. The end of June means that the year is half over, which is absolutely ridiculous. I swear yesterday was March (where does all the time go??) Here’s my monthly update and plan for July! June is always a chaotic month for me, and July usually isn’t any better, so hopefully my reading stays about the same.
Can you believe May is over? I am shocked, honestly. Wasn’t it February, like, yesterday? This year is moving along so fast for me, and I don’t know how to feel about it. Anyway, I wanted to give a quick update on what this month was like for me, and what I hope June holds!
