Ok, well, six posts. I can work with that! *it’s totally not relevant that the number has been steadily going down TCH TCH*

Also we’re SO FRICKIN CLOSE to 200 followers!!! it would be sooo awesome if you could spread the word and help me get to 200 πŸ˜‰


Life

Hey, life’s not bad! I made some supah-dupah awesome new friends, and as much as it pains me, I’m dividing my time so I don’t always spend time with my usual gang *sighs* but I’m always with friends!!

The thing is, Instagram has definitely been tiring me out, so I… deleted it from my phone. Whoopssss *shrugs* sorry-not-sorry. My personal account was put on hold, and even my bookstagram hasn’t been updated in a long while. I’m glad I made that decision so I can focus more on things that bring me happiness and more long-term success than stalking insta pages of beautiful people, books, and memes XD

This month, I have a music performance coming up #totallynotstressing so wish me luck! And UGH my English class is asdfghjk because my teacher is making us annotate a hundred pages in four days and four hundred (!!) pages in three weeks so ASDFGHJK.

As you might be able to tell, I really hate this project.


So, I’ve been thinking of doing Blogmas this year, but I’m not Christian and don’t necessarily celebrate Christmas super elaborately- it’s just a festive season and I hang with friends or travel… so what do you think? Can I still do Blogmas? I really want to try posting everyday though!!

ALSO THIS IS MONTH IS MY BLOGIVERSARY AHHH yay!! <3333 so excited!!

Have you read any of these books? Any frustrating teachers? Will you be doing Blogmas or do you think I should? How was September? When’s your blogiversary?

  1. YAY FOR NAVRATRI AND DIWALI!! I can hardly wait πŸ˜€
    Okay, coincidentally I did the EXACT SAME thing to my Instagram. Got rid of the app. It gets soo distracting after a while. πŸ˜•
    I’m really excited for October! Something tells me this month’s going to be great, though I don’t know what. πŸ˜›

  2. HAPPPPPPY BLOGIVERSARY ADITIIIIIII!!!!!!! sounds like you had a great summer… I wish I had time to read that many books (I only read two this summer *sigh*). also, good luck with your music performance and English – sorry about your teacher, I only have one teacher and that’s my mum (homeschooled). and I totally understand how insta can get in the way of life. anyways, have a wonderful October!!! πŸ’™

  3. Happy Bloggiversary!!
    I’m super proud for you, almost 200 followers! That’s amazing! I will let people know to follow you!
    I think you can definitely do Blogmas, because it looks super fun and I think it is more about the time and effort you do to interact, not necessariy whether you support christmas.

    1. Thank you so much, Emma!
      Aw thanksss that’s so sweet! It would mean a lot, Emma ❀ ❀ ❀
      Yes, thanks for the feedback! I hope I can do Blogmas! It's not that I don't support Christams- it's such a fun time, but I don't necessarily celebrate it extravagantly.
      Thanks for your comment! πŸ’›

  4. yayayay for magnus chase! i’ll always be happy to see people reading this series. i want to re-read it so bad, but i’ve been putting it off, because i want to take my time and re-read all three books back to back. i’ll probably do that over summer (which is december in this hemisphere).
    i’ve read one of us is lying as well and it was interesting to say the least. i sort of predicted the ending, which made things less exciting, and i do think some of the mental health issues were poorly acknowledged, but i do remember flying through it and finishing it in almost one sitting!
    and another yay for making new friends & staying away from social media! even though it was a 2019 goal of mine to spend less time on my phone, i’ve been failing miserably at it for the past few months. but i’m glad to hear this decision has made you feel lighter and happier about yourself. it’s sort of weird the power social media can have over our lives sometimes.
    i’d personally love to try out blogmas! since christmas is literally my least favorite time of the year (i’m such a grinch), i think it would be a lovely way to keep me positive. i’m sure it would be hard to come up with 25 different post ideas though, hahah. but i encourage you to do it if you think it’s a good idea!
    wishing you luck on your music performance and an amazing october!

    1. yesssss! I’ve always been a HoO stan haha but I’m also a Magnus Chase die-hard fan and I FORGOT HOW GOOD IT IS AHHH and now my third grade brother is reading it!! I’m so happy I can introduce him to the LGBTQ+ community befor he gets corrupted by social media and dumb homophobes :0 yes, do re-read it!! it’s totally worth it, although you already know that hehe ❀
      mhm I read it and for some weird reason I don't think I'll ever give a mystery five stars but I always DEVOUR them in one sitting like you said!! crazy how things work!
      yesss always amazing! I agree that social media is a big urghh and although I love being able to stay in touch with friends I don't see often and blogging friends, etc., it's not worth the distraction and stress 😦
      ooh I'd love to see you try it out! blogmas sounds like a ton of fun… and a ton of work lol. I don't realllyyy celebrate christmas bc it's not my religion, but I love the positive energy and festivities going around! *and um food, ok, foooood* ouch- if I may ask, why is christmas your least fav time of the year? and ahah the grinch is ADORABLE so that's not even an insult πŸ˜‚
      thanks lais!! have a wonderful october too! thanks for the super sweet comment <333

      1. I feel like Christmas is always a time with a lot of expectations, but it’s never really that good, hahah. We don’t have a lot of traditional foods in Brazil that I enjoy for this time of the year, plus it’s summer here, so let’s just say it’s a combination of a lot of things I don’t like.
        And that’s kinda true; I watched The Grinch last year and I just thought he was the cutest, hahah.

        1. Ooh, I feel you. Honestly, I feel the same way because we don’t even celebrate it, so usually on Christmas Day, we’re at home or something haha. I just like that we have a holiday!

  5. AAAH LOVE THIS! You read so many books YES girl! Good luck on that music performance – you’ll do so well! Omg annotation is the worse. Like no I don’t want to highlight tree shavings for you. HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY MONTH! YES to deleting instagram and making new friends! Have a great October.
    P.S. if you want to do blogmas, go for it. But if you’re just looking to post everyday you can do a fall week of just fall posts. Or if you have a Hindu celebration that you can post for that would be cool. Whatever u want girl! Just make sure it’s content you like to write.

    1. YAS GIRL THANKSSSS! <3333 so bay I can't even *deep breaths*
      AHAHA tree shavings *wheezes* beautiful! (imagine me slow clapping with a huge smile. oh wait nvm you can't bc you don't know my face- JUST IMAGINE SPONGEBOB it's close enough hehe)
      That's such a great idea! I think I'll keep it light and do non-religious bc everyone's brain-dead after reading my Q&A lol πŸ˜‚ so yes, a fall month is a great idea!
      Thanks for the comment, have a great October!

  6. What is up with your English teacher? I swear teachers just don’t understand that we have other subjects that also give us homework & idk A LIFE!
    You should totally do Blogmas if you want or blogcember πŸ˜‚ I’m thinking about maybe doing it this year but maybe not doing it every day? Because I don’t want the quality to dip πŸ’•πŸ’•

  7. aaa, congrats on 200 followers *tears up* i’m so proud. also, i’m just relishing the fact that we don’t have to annotate at ALL *all smug* but honestly, that’s some nonsense right there. 100 pages in four days?? *tsk tsk* but it’s fun to imagine that the teachers do this because they have no life. or may possibly be sitting in a 20-year old couch that they don’t want to give away while watching chick-flicks instead of grading papers. don’t ask about the specificness *shrugs* also you’ll do AMAZINGHGHGHGDSK in your performance. i mean, come on, you do this sort of thing all the time! this time won’t be any different πŸ˜‰ just remember not to procrastinate *gives you the look* *you know which look*

    have a beauty-full autumn!!

    Also happy bloggiversary!! *dance party* It is actually my bloggiversary next week so we are quite close, I've started my posts but I've yet to finish them (oops) but last year my bloggiversary post was 5 months late so it going to be better than that!! πŸ˜‚
