With another year approaching it’s climax, I can’t help but wonder, as always, where it went. To say that years, days, weeks, and months, go by quickly is an understatement. I feel like my blogging has definitely lagged a bit this year. Whether it was from burn out or depression (yes, I think I admit to this), it just wasn’t appealing to me. Promises to myself can be made, but honestly, I’m not sure if this won’t continue to happen. Sorry to all my blogging buddies that I didn’t visit, surely you must understand how I feel. But enough of the self loathing and melancholy.
Now on a lighter note…
I did complete my Goodreads reading challenge and went a little bit past it too. There are a few books that I haven’t reviewed yet, so I’ll leave those for next year, I think.
Also, not all my stats from my blog are going to reflect what I actually completed, since I didn’t write too many posts this year.
My new-ish kitten Toodles is thriving, she’s now over 10 pounds! I can’t believe it. When we rescued her she was a mere 1 lb 9 oz! Here’s a picture of her when we got her:
You can read about her ordeals here:
Oh! and this happened to me on Twitter:
I got 1.2K likes on my post! Granted, I piggy backed off a trending hashtag and it wasn’t book related, but still. I think now it’s up to 1.3K. Probably peaked right here. LMAO.
