WWW WEDNESDAY 05.08.2020 // Hopefully getting back into a good reading mood!

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! As you all might now if you’ve been following me closely this year, 2020 has been a really weird year for me. I’ve been either reading like crazy or almost not at all and I developed some crazy Insomnia, so 2020 has been A LOT.

So, the last few months for me have been pretty slow in terms of reading but I think August is going to be a good month for me because I’m already getting stuck into a few books and I’ve had a really positive start to the month so hopefully you’ll see a few postitive WWWs in the future!

WWW Wednesday is hosted byΒ Taking On a World of WordsΒ and you can find my other WWW Wednesday posts and find my progressΒ here.

MY AUGUST BULLET JOURNAL SET UP // 2020

Hi all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with my August bullet journal spread!

Also a quick caveat – I’m not blessed with any artistic talent and my journal is purely for helping me through the year and I’m using it more to keep myself accountable throughout the year. So, excuse the basic spreads but I’m proud of them!

JULY WRAP UP // Going Back to Uni & Slowing Down πŸ“šπŸ₯±πŸŽ¬

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog!

Ooh wow, what to say? It’s been a very long month for me, full of uni work and not much else! I didn’t read much this month and I didn’t watch a lot either! So, you’d think I would’ve been blogging like crazy but sadly I barely posted anything at all, it seems all of my creative energy went out the window in July. I am starting to get my mojo back now though, so I have hope for August and I have officially started planning round 2 of the readathon that I co-host with Destiny! The official dates are October 11 – 19th in your time zone! (@GraphicsAthon)

↣ If you have any thoughts on what you want to see in a readathon, I’d appreciate your input here!

I’ve had a very up and down month in terms of ratings and whether I actually enjoyed what I was reading but, a plus to that is I found a new favourite 5 star read and I already can’t wait to re-read it in the future!! I also, weirdly read mostly blue-green books this month which was wild because one day, I was literally dressed head to toe in blue, next to a stack of blue books while eating a blue cake that I had made (in fairness, I was reading Percy Jackson at the time) and I think that’s honestly very weird but also low-key hilarious. It was unintentional, I swear!

Insomnia Update: I spent the majority of the month going to sleep around 3 in the morning and then waking up a few hours later for class around 8am once Uni started. BUT, thankfully I am now taking Melatonin so I’m starting to get back on track with a sleep schedule and I’m now going to sleep around midnight each night and it’s amazing! I’m still completely exhausted but I do have a lot of sleep to catch up to be fair! πŸ˜‚πŸ’•
