January Adventure Log | Month in Review

Greetings friends, long time no see! I haven’t really posted over the last two weeks here on the blog and I apologize for the unplanned & unannounced hiatus. The truth is I had such a productive January in terms of reading and content that it was inevitable to have a massive sap to my mental health. And as if that downswing wasn’t bad enough, last week it was joined with a couple of hospital visits. (I’m ok & healing!)

But this is about January! My birthday month and the month that I unabashedly show my adoration for Edgar Allan Poe. And I also read a lot of books, so let’s jump into it.

Adventure Log: December 2019 in Review

Happy 2020, friends! Welcome to my December 2019 wrap-up, and a bit of a branding tweak. I’ve changed my monthly recaps to Adventure Logs in keeping with my blog’s theme, which I fully intend on leaning into in 2020 & beyond!

December is a month where everyone reflects on the past eleven months (I originally typed ‘elven’ haha), looks forward to the new year, and scrambles to finish the goals they set for themselves.

October in Review // A Month of Transition

Spooky Season may have come and gone, but ya girl embraces spooky 24/7! My month was a little intense with a reading slump that just won’t quit, relocating 600 miles (more about that in the personal update), and trying to find the energy to spend time with family and friends.

GDT: - Game 21: Sabres vs Penguins - 11/19 7pm ET (MSG-B ...

I watched a lot of slasher flicks as is my tradition for the month, as well as Hocus Pocus. My reading slump is really weird because I’ve been enjoying the books I am reading but just don’t have the desire to read. I’m working to accept that though.

I did manage to get some reading done… and actually cleared my current reading shelf on Goodreads, which at one point last month had six books on it and gave me literal anxiety.
