November Currently . . .

Time for another personal post. Here’s what I’ve been up to this month.

I’m Currently . . .

Reading: The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. This book is amazing, but it has taken me an entire month to read it because I haven’t had much time for reading.

Watching: Thanksgiving stuff on the Food channel.

Stalking: Booktubers. I don’t like watching booktube videos because they’re boring, but I like listening to them while doing other things. My favorite booktubers are Jen Campbell and Jean BookishThoughts. Go check them out.

Planning: To stay home. I was traveling for the first three weeks of November, and I’m so ready to sleep in my own bed. I also have a lot of photos to edit and show you.

Making: Lists of what to get people for Christmas.

Stocking up on: Books, of course. The answer to this is always books.

Wishing for: My jetlag to go away. In the past few weeks, I’ve been to almost every time zone in the continental US. My body is so confused.

Enjoying: Fuzzy winter clothes, space heaters, holiday food, and being home with my dogs.

Trying: To finish grad school by next winter. It’s going to be a challenge.

Eating: Everything! It’s Thanksgiving.

Goal setting: I need to make a schedule for myself and stick to it so that everything gets done on time during the holidays.

Learning: I’m more capable than I think I am. If I want something to happen, I can find a way to make it happen.


  1. I love these posts of yours^^ I still need to read The House of the Scorpion but I've heard wonderful things. I love making Christmas lists, wearing warm and snuggly clothes, staying in and eating ALL THE THINGS! I hope you can kick your jetlag soon AJ :)

  2. I was loving all the Thanksgiving cooking shows. I am making the remaining christmas lists even though I ma like 85% done with my shopping. Hope your jet lag goes away and you get to rest. That is a lot of traveling!!
