life updates:

This week was not much better than last week, but I’m trying to be optimistic about the coming week. My anxiety is still wrecking me and I had some sort of weird stomach bug for a few days, but I also had 5 days off from work in a row (I was too sick to work Friday and then my schedule just happened to be a 4-day weekend), which helped a bit. My spouse got to work from home for most of those days so I was able to just get in some nice family time and rest a lot.

I need to start taking a more proactive approach to helping myself out with my stress levels, not just with what’s been bothering me lately (the state of the world in general lol) but also with stuff like work, school, etc… so I’m starting to find some things I can sacrifice that I know I’ll miss but that ultimately are making me feel worse, like twitter, facebook, and a consistent posting schedule here and on booktube. I’ll still post when I can and I’ll try to, at minimum(!), post a weekly update every Wednesday on here, but please bear with me if I’m not as active as I usually try to be. ♥


goals for the coming week:

I’m putting this section on hold until my mental health improves.

Update on last week’s goals:

  1. Write reviews for 20+ RTCs
  2. Catch up on blog hopping
  3. Schedule 2 weeks of posts

This week’s new goals:

  1. (carrying over) Write reviews for 20+ RTCs
  2. (carrying over) Catch up on blog hopping
  3. Schedule at least 2 weeks of blog posts


a few last words:




twitter | booktube | bookstagram | facebook | goodreads

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. I love weeklies wrap up !! Though I don’t do them myself because well.. I don’t have much to say xD I barely do anything other than work & get back home to game and blogging..

      I’m so sorry your anxiety is so bad, I hope you get back to yourself soon ❤️ Take plenty of rest, and read as much as you can ! I get you about worrying about the world in general.. I myself broke down earlier when finding out there was a first case near me – my mother being immunodepressive as she has gotten a kidney transplant.

      Please don’t worry about us and your blog, do what you have to feel better and take your time! xx

    1. I love you so much and I’m keeping you in my thoughts! I’m glad you’re taking steps to improve your stress levels and we will be here when you’re ready!

Say hello! ♥
