Oh, wow! What a month… 🤷♀️ First of all, I hope all of you are doing well! For the past couple of weeks, I didn’t really blog hop as much as I usually do, and it made me feel very disconnected from everyone. I hope to fix that before this post goes live!
Secondly, WHAT A MONTH! I knew going in September that it was going to be (1) a slow reading month and (2) an exhausting and nerve-racking one as well. And it was both of these things, but on a much larger scale than expected!
Something got to me this month, not sure if it was the change of seasons or the fact that the end of the year is approaching too quickly, but it’s been a very melancholic month for me. I’ve been loving the few rainy days that we’ve got! They were super cozy and I can’t wait for a proper autumn to begin. 🍁🍂
|WHAT HAPPENED IN SEPTEMBER|
1 – House hunting.
September began with house-hunting. We’ve been trying to find a new place to buy for quite a while now and in August we saw this (was seemed like great at the time) opportunity of buying a house not too far from where we live and work now. We had a visit scheduled for the 1st of September and it was quite a disappointment. The photos can be very deceiving! So the hunt continues…
Honestly, I’m not going to stress myself out with this right now. Keep my eyes open and hopefully, something we like (and can afford) will pop up soon. In any case, who knows how the estate market will change in the next 6-8 months, as the country is slowly preparing for another wave of quarantine.
2 – Keep on studying.
There was a lot of studying happening in September. Studying before work, studying during lunch breaks, studying after work, on the weekends, etc. etc. The fun thing is that I don’t even know if I will be able to seat my exams still this year 🤷♀️ I’m kinda studying “just in case”!
3 – Not reading.
Yeah… Let’s talk about that. I finished 2 books this month and currently in the middle of another 3. And to be honest, I’m kinda okay with it. I know it’s a big difference from what I usually read (*cough* 18 books in July *cough*), but I knew going into September that I would be cutting my reading time. Basically, all the time I used to dedicate to reading I spent either working or studying (or sometimes not doing anything productive at all…)
4 – Listening to the best cover ever!
I keep gushing about Little Mix in my wrap up posts, but OMG! They covered Harry Styles’ “Falling” and it was absolutely beautiful. Everyone needs to listen to it! I’m pretty sure I watched this video over 20 times at this point. Lol
|MONTHLY READING STATS|
Total Books: 2 read, 3 currently reading
Total Pages: 736
I’m not even going to mention my September reading goals. All of the fantasy series I was planning to continue / finish didn’t happen. Most important is that I read the ARCs that were due. I’m happy about that! 🤣
