Last month, I was the most productive self – running errands, writing reviews, keeping up with the blog, and reading tons of books. Everything was possible! (you can read my March Wrap Up here!) And then came April…
Did I just blink and March was gone? Or does every month pass quicker and quicker? So… March! Even though I just said that it passed in a blink of an eye, I (somehow) managed to get a lot of things done.
If I were to pick the word of the month, it would be Productivity. Because for the first 3 weeks of March I was running errands like crazy. Ticking things off my To-Do list along the way. Until I got ill…
That was the first time (the trend of 2019’s firsts continues) in my life that I felt that spike of energy level. It just dropped from 100 to 10 in one night. And the last week has been a struggle to even get up in the mornings.
I consider myself a morning person. When I was in school and Uni, I would never stay late studying. My strategy was to go to bed earlier, so I could wake up at 5 a.m. and revise before the test. The time until around 1 p.m. is when I’m the most productive. So waking up tired was a very nasty experience. Gladly, I’m slowly getting over the cold, pushing through as usual!
Here I am writing blog posts instead of preparing a fictional court case for my civil practice class. That’s the dedication! To be fair, this post is long overdue. Basically since the end of January. So I think I have my priorities very straight. The fictional court case can wait. It is fictional after all!
There were new events, long working hours, traveling, books, and many changes. It was by far one of the best years in a long time and I wish 2019 would be just as good, and I will try to make it even better.
2018 was a good year for personal growth, but I completely neglected my blog and books. I barely managed to complete my GoodReads reading goal on time with a total of 51 books. (Actually, 52 as this post goes live, as I managed to power through the 1st book in the His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman!) Here you can see the full list of books I read in 2018!
It is the 12th of August as I am writing this and I’ve come to realize that:
(A) the summer is almost over! There is only August left and, while I happen to live a walking distance from the beach, I’ve only gone a couple of times this year and I have to remedy this as soon as possible!
(B) I’ve been far more into fantasy this summer with a comparison to last year when all I practically read were contemporary and literary fiction all day every day. And
(C) Throne of Glass is actually an AMAZING SERIES WITH A LOT OF ACTION, DRAMA & BETRAYALS. Who would have thought that I’d fall in love with Throne of Glass, after absolutely hating the Court of Thorns and Roses?! It’s a mystery for me too.
*The list could go on and on. I love lists. But who doesn’t?
What seemed like rather uneventful 5 months, turned out to be a very busy time looking back. That is why I love doing wrap-ups so much, they give a perfect overview of my life, of things I did and things still to be done in the future.
This year started just as any other year, with celebrations, hopes and many promises to myself that (A) I will finally go to the gym and (B) get my life under control. I’m glad to announce that I kept at least one promise to myself, and have been going to the gym for the past 4 months! Continue reading “Spring Wrap Up 2018 | Life, Blog & Reading Update”→
I hope you all had a great Easter (everyone who celebrated on the 1st of April), and if you are like me and your Easter is only on the 8th, don’t worry! our time to eat chocolate eggs, pastries and cakes are still ahead of us. Recently, I’ve posted a list of My Goals for the upcoming months, make sure to check it out if you haven’t yet. I wasn’t able to complete all of them fully, but I made some progress and will continue working on them.
