We are already at the end of the first month of 2019 !
I gotta say .. compared to December, January was kinda “merh” on my side 🙊 so i’m kinda happy this month is coming to an end (though a rather good one for reading, nonetheless!) and February is bringing quite a few events for us aswell, that we’ll discuss later :3
Habit tracker ;
January’s events ;
Firstly, go peak at my “update post” I’ve done on the 13th to have a little look onto what happened on the start of my month.
❤︎ I just finished reading my 4th book !! A new record for me, As I never went beyond 3 a month in the last year 😄 I’ve finished 3 tomes out of 9 of “Le journal d’Aurélie Laflamme”, and also the poetry book “Witchcraft & Monsters” that I had gotten out of Netgalley.
❤︎ Winter seems to wanna hit us all at once .. we’ve been having snowstorm after snowstorm, and two mixed with rain/hail which made the roads supper slippery and dangerous. Dad was saying how it’s not a law to have winter tires here (Iknow!) and it was taking him an hour to get to work after said storms because after a red light, people without winter tire would stay stuck and couldn’t get driving on the green light, for the ice “trapped” them 😂
❤︎ I had a … *aherm* Television accident .. I decided to used super long glued-on nails as I had a two days off, and the next day mom wanted me to help her lift the television she had sold and bring it in the living room .. yeah, bad idea 🙃
I lift it fine, but I wanted to sit it and my hand kinda.. slipped. I’ll just let you imagine what happened to my nails .. two of them removed themselves fine while the third one decided to bring my real nail with it xd So we finally got into the ER to hopefully get them to pull nail out, waiting 8HOURS in the waiting room to finally have the Dr say “Oh, we’ll just tape it and you’ll be fine, wait that it fall itself and it’d grow back” 🤦🏽♀️ I was not really impressed.. worst part; Of course it was my right hand and i’m a righty!
❤︎ At work, it’s still somewhat chaotic but i’m finally onto the daytime shifts !! Hopefully i’ll stay on them from now on (We know only 2 weeks in advance), and that myself and Alex will finally get to see eachother way more with thoses ! However … yikes, we start at 630am 😅 Definately quite the change from my months on 230/3pm, though I have a few 1-9s aswell.
❤︎ Also! In case you haven’t noticed yet, the blog got a little bit of a makeover 😘 Posts now have a header picture, I switched the blog’s header aswell as the menu bar and widget bar ~ I’d love to hear your thoughts on it !
This month’s posts showcase ;
Please know there was alot more posts that I adored this month! But we’re only gonna mention a few here as we will be still reading this tomorrow 😅
❤︎ Shruti @ This is Lit gave us quite the handy post with what to do when a Netgalley title get archived before you load it.
❤︎ Sophie @ Beware the reader gave us quite a different top 5 tuesdays posts with her Top 5 reasons why she loves reading. Posts like this are why I love her and her blog so much!
❤︎ Ruthsic @ YA on my mind is implementing a new posts series on her blog called “Shouting from the shelftops”, and I SO love that concept!
❤︎ Austine @ Novel Knight posted what her blog in 2019 should look like, and I gotta say, I loved how heartfelt this post was. She’s talking the real talk here and setting a nice set of goals that I so wish her to accomplish!
New month, new pages !
I kinda wanna add more monthly pages to my Bujo but alas .. I haven’t got any ideas as of what i’d need for now. Soon i’d be done with this one and can start a new one; This blue Leuchtturm Bujo have maybe two months top remaining!
How has your January been ? Do you have any recommendations as to which pages I don’t have that can be useful ?
