SEPTEMBER WRAP UP | I have some controversial atla opinions… ๐Ÿ™ˆ

So… September. What can I say about September? I was in a bit of a weird life funk this month. I had a tonne of work to do for uni, I was planning a readathon, trying to find a job, in a pseudo-reading slump and all while being my super anxious self… it was an experience, I’ll tell you that for free.

What’s new with me?

You’ve all probably seen the announcement by now, as well as my life update post, but just in case you haven’t I’ll talk about it again here!

In October, a few friends and I will be hosting our second round of the GraphicsAthon; a readathon dedicated to reading manga, graphic novels and comics. It runs from the 11th to the 19th so come join us! You can find the announcement post here, and find us on Twitter over here.

MY SEPTEMBER BULLET JOURNAL SET UP // 2020

2020bulletjournal

Hi all! Welcome back to my blog! Today Iโ€™m coming at you with my August bullet journal spread!

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

AUGUST WRAP UP // Reading Old and New Favourites!

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with my August wrap up! This month started off really strong and I read some new favourites that I absolutely loved but I also had a fair bit of assessment towards the end of the month so my reading and watching really tapered off towards the backend of the month.

Overall, August was a good month, if not a little bit stessful towards the end, so now I’m really excited to see what I read or watch in September!

Also, for anyone curious, I host the GraphicsAThon with Destiny and round 2 will be taking place October 11-19th so you can look forward to an announcement for that soon!

WWW WEDNESDAY 19.08.2020 | Reading New Favourites & Struggling With Others… ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! As you all might now if youโ€™ve been following me closely this year, 2020 has been a really weird year for me. Iโ€™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 so far August hase been a really good month for me! I’ve read some new favourites this month so far, and I can ony hope that continues, so hopefully youโ€™ll see a few postitive WWWs in the future!

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking On a World of Words and you can find my other WWW Wednesday posts and find my progress here.
