life updates

The last couple of weeks have 100% kicked my ass. I’m hoping the coming week is better but honestly… I don’t even wanna talk about it anymore.

3 good things I can focus on today:

  1. There are Sea of Thieves Twitch drops for a fancy new ship set I really like going on right now
  2. We paid off some extra credit card debt this week
  3. I finally started playing ACNH regularly again!

Feel free to focus on the good stuff with me in the comments! What are 3 good things (or even 1 thing) you can focus on today?

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

    1. Sorry to hear the past couple of weeks have been tough for you, I hope that there are better times to come! 💕 Also very excited for the secret things to come on your blog! 👀

    1. Wow, the Demon prince series brings me back. I was keeping up with on release, but dropped off after awhile. May need to go back now. I love the three good things section because self-reflection.
      1. I hauled an eARC of You Have a Match by Emma Lord which sounds even more like a me-book than the author’s debut.
      2. I saw The Cabin in the Woods for the first time this weekend and it’s honestly still living in my mind.
      3. I had less migraines this week.

    1. The Bookish Baking Tag looks adorable! I loved your answers for it. Also HOLY CURRENT READS. You are superhuman! I hope you enjoy them all:) Seems like you’ve had a very productive week, I hope this next one is a good one!

    1. How the freaking heck do you read that many books at once??!! It would drive me absolutely insane! (Seriously, how do you do it without getting overwhelmed? Is that amount normal for you?) Good post though! Thanks for the update.

    1. I finally have a new pc so I’ve been playing a lot of overwatch and world of warcraft to deal with the stress of work. I also moved in with my bf last month and I’m just absolutely loving it. And hopefully, after a couple months, I might be able to get a cat!
      Hopefully your week gets better! <3
