January Reviews & Reading Wrap-Up

I read more this month than I expected so I’ll probably take it a little slower the next couple of months.

My To Be Read Pile

My TBR pile is a monstrosity and only ever seems to be growing no matter how much I read. I have a list of about 50+ books that I want to focus on this year. These are probably my top five.

My Reading Challenges for 2017

So last year, I decided to try to do a bunch of reading challenges (probably too many) to help me get back in the habit of reading again. While I managed to keep up my habit (mostly), I also learned my limitations and weaknesses. For example, reading 5-10 books a month is probably not gonna happen. Same with doing 5+ reading challenges, it’s unlikely. So now that I’ve discovered my boundaries I think I can manage to try to do this again, hopefully Continue reading

One Year Later…

T Minus 0 Weeks

This year. Has. Been. Rough. Just some highlights include: my cat getting cancer and losing a leg (she’s better now), barely skating anymore, and losing my job. So, fun times. All that along with other things have really demotivated me from doing anything that wasn’t either Continue reading

So we’re doing this huh?

Where Does the Time Go?

T Minus 42 Weeks

I’m starting to feel old. In a year I’ve gone from being a perpetual night owl to feeling lucky if I don’t pass out before 10pm. Derby is starting to really take it’s toll on me as well. Between training and board/committee duties I feel both physically and mentally wiped most of the time. Despite all of this, I’m really happy with a lot of the progress I do manage to make. I’m still reading a lot. I’ve started planning and organizing myself more. I’m eating better and taking better care of myself (’cause I’m pretty much falling apart).
