I did nothing interesting in July. I barely even left the house. This is entirely school’s fault. Until November, I’m going to be a researching/writing/literature dissecting machine. Since I’ve been so boring lately, writing this post was difficult, but here are a few non-school-related things I did this month:
I’m Currently . . .
Reading: Dracula by Bram Stoker.
Watching: The Great British Bake Off is back on American TV! I have no idea which season this is, and I don’t want to look it up because of spoilers. It probably aired in the UK a thousand years ago. It’s new to me, though, so I’m excited. You gotta love pretentious desserts.
Catching up on: This season’s episodes of The Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers. I don’t watch much TV, but when I do, I binge it.
Listening to: I recently heard the song ‘The Road Less Traveled’ by Lauren Alaina. It’s fun and upbeat. I had it on repeat while I did school stuff.
Eating: Fried green beans at this restaurant near my house. All vegetables should be deep fried. Seriously.
Stocking up on: Books. I’ve been on a book-buying ban all year, and I actually started to run out of things I wanted to read. I don’t want my TBR pile to be completely gone, so I went on Book Outlet and bought some cheap books.
Goal setting: Be sane about book-buying. I don’t want my TBR pile to be gone, but I don’t want it to be huge, either.
Getting rid of: Books on my wish list. Cutting down the wish list was my compromise for buying new books. If I’m being realistic, there’s no way I can read everything on my wish list. I cut the list down from nearly 200 books to fewer than 100. That’s still more than I can read, but it’s slightly saner.
Blogging: Bloglovin’ is still broken for me, so I’ve been spending more time looking at blogs in link-ups. I’ve discovered so many new blogs. It’s crazy how many book blogs are out there.
Learning: To space out war books. I read three books about war over the span of two weeks. This was extremely anxiety-producing. Then I went on Twitter to look at funny pictures of cats, but my feed was full of people saying, “If you’re not tweeting about (insert current world tragedy here), then you’re a terrible, selfish person.” Sigh. Not enough cats.
Wishing for: World peace.
What did you do in July?
