Life as I know It...
I really do not know what is with me this month, but I am afraid everyone is going to forget about me, so I am trying this whole posting thing again! Seeing as how a blog is for posting and my blog has received little to no attention this month. I am just happy that it is because life has been good and I am busy that I have so little time for blogging and reading this month, it is much better than the alternative! Hopefully I will do a bit better job at keeping in touch in February. My TBR pile is really suffering from this month. I just finished my fourth book of the month earlier tonight! For some of you, that is a good thing, but for me, it is really weird!
I have accomplished other things this month, though... I bought new clothes, which I really needed to do because my wardrobe was a bit faded; I got sneakers that are like the most comfortable things ever and do not hurt my feet at all, which is an awesome thing for me; I rearranged my bookshelves except for one shelf; I managed to not buy any books at all so far this month; I ended a very bad relationship with a guy that means well, but was not really for me; I reconnected with some friends that I have not talked to in ages; I have a social life and have been doing things for my age group, something that my boyfriend was never interested in doing, so I have really missed it; and I have done a lot more... So, reading-wise, not my best month, but I have done a lot of things that I have been putting off for forever and a day, so I am really happy with myself!
I love how I sort of just added the boyfriend thing in there like it was no big deal... I was with him for quite some time, so it is a big deal! It is probably the biggest thing to come out of 2008 so far, and partly to blame for my lack of reading. I find that if I am idle too long, me and him tend to start talking again and then I fall into the same trap, so I have been latching on to my friends lately so I am kept busy and don't do that again. I love to read, but it doesn't keep me occupied enough at times, and then my mind starts wandering. A wandering mind is a bad thing.
So, if I am quiet for the rest of the month, you know what is going on. It is not that I do not like blogging or reading anymore, it is just that I need to keep busy! I am sure everyone understands. I also suck at blog-hopping, but I am trying!
Anyways, so once again, I am alive! And, I do check my email everyday, if nothing else, so if you need my attention for whatever reason, that is the best way to get in touch.
