Do y’all know that video of the girl who got a speeding ticket and then she has a full emotional breakdown because “her life is going extremely downhill”. Because that is EXACTLY how I feel right now.
I honestly don’t even know how else to introduce this post.
This is basically just going to be me rambling about my life and everything that is going wrong at this very moment.
I’m in a pretty bad mental state, I could not care less about blogging right now, I lack any and all motivation to study for my exam and my reading mojo is off. I usually don’t talk about my struggles on my blog, but I’m tired and I just want to be honest with y’all.
So here we are.
I’m a little nervous to post this, but I just really needed to get these things off my chest and I hope you guys understand where I’m coming from.
Sit down and grab a snack because this is going to be rambly personal AF.
Do you ever get that wholesome feeling after finishing a Wrap Up post when you realise how successful your month has been?
Because that’s how I’m feeling right now.
I feel so at ease because not only did I manage to read amazing books this month, but I also took care of my mental health and did a lot of things I enjoy but have neglected over the last few months (eg. WRITING!!!) and it feels so GOOD.
And as you can tell by the title of this post, I have some very exciting things to share with you guys!!!! Ahhh!!!
Have you ever set yourself New Year’s Resolutions and abandonded them two weeks into the new year?
Yeah. I think we can all relate.
I planned to do a 2018 goals post at the very beginning of the year so I could easily go back to it and hold myself accountable for actually keeping up with them.
As you can probably tell, I already failed that task.
I planned to abandon this post altogether because it seemed pretty pointless to post it when we’re already two months into the year. However, it is NEVER too late to set yourself some goals for the year so here I am.
you may have seen Swetlana’s post from last week about her 2018 reading goals which PROVES that it’s not too late!
Let’s hope I’ll actually stick to these goals instead of abandoning them like I do every year.
Hey what’s up, it’s been a while! [whenever I say this I’ve got Zayn’s song in my head but I don’t think anyone here gets the reference]
Well, as the title of this post suggests, I am back from the dead (again).
I was literally so motivated to start posting again when I wrote my December Recap, but then life happened and hit me in the face like a brick, and I wasn’t READY to have all these responsibilities thrown at me out of NOWhERe.
My recap ended up being the only post I wrote in January dkhgdk I’M SORRY.
I’m not one to constantly abandon my blog, go on random unannounced hiatuses and post inconsistently, but it has been happening a lot lately AND I HATE IT.
I desperately hope think that I finally regained my blogging mojo though and I’m excited to see what February brings I MEAN IT’S THE MONTH OF LOVE AFTER ALL *yuck*
For now, please enjoy reading about my 5 nervous breakdowns :)))))
Well, well, well. Guess who’s back from the dead her unannounced hiatus.
IT’S YA GIRL JACKIE (in case you forgot my name lmao) aka the one who takes a month to reply to comments and almost never blog hops anymore because she’s trash life gets in the way. But what’s new *shrugs*
I actually planned to go on a 2-week long hiatus between Christmas and now, and I planned to have at least two more posts up before I did that and actually announce the hiatus but….. you know….
THE STRUGGLES OF BEING #LAZY AND #DEMOTIVATED.
But I’m back now (at least for a week or two?) before I go on another hiatus because I’ll be in study hell I mean– okay no I really mean STUDY HELL.
Before I do that though, I wanted to take a look at the year 2017. I honestly can’t believe how FAST it went by—I swear, this was one of the quickest years EVER and while I have accomplished and done some incredible things, I still feel that overall it was pretty meh and I could have done MORE.
However, my 2017 from a bookish perspective was fantastic and it was THE BEST reading year I’ve had so far???? I’m SOOOO excited to go through my Goodreads shelves and see which books I loved and hated most this year AHHHH.
What is reading??? What is writing??? What is blogging??? What is life???
What. Even. Was. November.
I don’t think I’ve ever had such a bad reading month. In the first 3 weeks of November, I didn’t even pick up a single book for myself aka I only forced myself through the four tragic/average/trashy/boring books I had to read for uni.
My poor bookshelves were wailing for my attention, begging me to PLEASE JUST PICK OUT A SINGLE BOOK TO READ WE MISS YOU
But my brain was like NUH-UH you’re doing NaNo, you have to focus on WRITING.
Well, guess who didn’t do any writing either?????? Me.
Things got better at the end of the month BUT I’M STILL IN THIS WEIRD FUNK WHERE EVERYTHING I DO IS EXHAUSTING.
I don’t want to make my intro too depressing, but be prepared for an enourmous existentital crisis including lots of crying, exhaustion, flailing of arms and MAYBE a handful of good things that happened to me.
PS. HOW IS IT DECEMBER ALREADY IT’S BASICALLY CHRISTMAS AKA 2018 AKA CAN WE NOT IT’S GIVING ME ANXIETY
Guess who finally handed in her term papers and now has all the time in the world (actually I only have a week) to get back into blogging!!! THIS GIRRRRL.
*cue Eminem’s Without Me aka the “Guess who’s back, back again” song*
Some of you might not even remember me because my hiatus lasted way too long—I said I’d be back July 31st and now it’s October hA I’m the worst :’) You’re probably wondering where this creepy new girl in your Reader came from and WHO EVEN ARE YOU????? I DON’T REMEMBER FOLLOWING YOU. GET OUT.
Ummm, first of all—chill??? Maybe??? There’s not reason to be rude???
Secondly, it’s ME. It’s Jackie aka Too Much of a Booknerd aka the girl who won’t shut up about Shatter Me and Warnette (and Harry Styles) aka the girl with uncreative and boring content aka the girl whose blog design/graphics were the WORST and messiest ever.
BUT ALL OF THAT CHANGED (except the Warnette and Harry Styles part lol i’m still WHIPPED).
