Bi-Weekly Wrap-Up | December

FullSizeRender (61)

Hello again! It is around the middle of December, so I am here today to share my progress for this month so far in regards to my TBR, posts, life in general, etc. I hope you have all been having a successful reading month, as well as just remembering that it is ALMOST Christmas (if you celebrate).

  • Firstly I must put it out there that I AM FINALLY ON CHRISTMAS BREAK!!! So, I do have some extra time on my hands to paint, read, and blog. I am expecting to get A LOT of reading done because I absolutely want to reach my 2015 Reading Challenge Goal. And then I’ve been in the mood to paint and sketch, so we’ll see how that goes.
  • These past two weeks have been the most stressful days of my life. I know “it gets harder”, but for right now, it’s exhausting enough. And I’ve been challenged to the maximum for school and right now I think I deserve a break. I am extremely terrified for next semester, but right now I’m trying to forget about that and focus on the holiday season.
  • In the next week or so, I will be going to my local Wal-Mart and buying a ton of toys and items for the less fortunate children for the holidays. So, I am really excited for that. I have to cash in all of the change I’ve been saving over the this year, and then I’ll be taking around half to purchase toys and such, and then the other half will be going to a charity of choice.

  • I am totally stressing because I am REALLY trying to complete this year’s reading goal!!! I currently have to read FOUR more books by the end of this year…
  • I only completed one novel this month: Five-Seven-Five by C.E. Wilson. A review for that should be going up soon.
  • Currently reading: The Dinner by Herman Koch & And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard. Both of these novels are scarcely slow right now, so I am not sure if I’ll be continuing BOTH of these.

  • I’ve been tagged in a ton of posts these past few weeks, so you should be seeing those very soon!

  1. I think you are doing really well, considering your workload! I’ve been out of school for years and have only read 2 books this month – usually I read 2 or 3 a week. It’s a busy time of year – try to just enjoy your break and your reading, and if you don’t finish 4 books, oh well. You have accomplished a LOT.

    • Aw, well thanks so much! I really appreciate your kind words & I will definitely take them into consideration! When times get busy, we don’t get to do what we love sometimes, but that’s okay. I hope what you did read this month was worthwhile, though! Thank you, again.. 🙂

  2. Hallelujah for Christmas break!!! What a great person you are to spend time and money during the holidays to buy gifts for those less fortunate than you. You’re an inspiration!
