Random Quote of the Day: “Laughter is by definition healthy.” – Doris Lessing

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I know, I am a few days late for my August Wrap-Up, but better late than never!!

THE BOOKS

No books have been completed this month, but I have started I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS by Maya Angelou for school! Surprisingly, I am really enjoying this novel so there will definitely be an update on this! (:

THE ART

Again, no actual art has been made this month, but I am taking Visual Arts SL for my IB course this year, so I might start posting pics of my sketches/practices…? (:

Random Quote of the Day: “1. Never tell everything at once.” – Ken Venturi

Hello sunshines! 🔆 With my last year of high school right around the corner I thought this would be a great time for me to post this discussion! I’ve actually been slowing planning out this post so it’s cool that I’m able to finally share it with you all!

That time in the beginning, middle, or even the end of the school/uni year where you ran out of ALL steam possible to blog. No inspiration, no time, no will-power to get up and type that post. You tell yourself that you’ll do it over the weekend but then you end up laying in your bed watching Netflix — I know, relatable.

There is no shame in this act, however, because WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE. But we are not here to dwell on the past. In fact, I’m here to help you get a kickstart to the school year and share…

Where Art Thou JBelkBooks?? | May Wrap-Up

Random Quote of the Day: “If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.” – Frank A. Clark

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I know, I know, I know….I have disappeared from the blogosphere this past month and it has broken my heart. I actually don’t have many bookish or art related things to update you on so if you are here for that then I am extremely sorry. However, my unexplained hiatus will all be addressed now…

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

Image result for slumped gifWell, I’ve been at school. Yes, you’ve guessed it. School has taken over my LIFE this past month and I can officially say that this has been the worst year of my high school education. The worst as in: I can never catch a break.

As you all know I am an International Baccaleurette student meaning that I am required to test out of my Standard Level classes. With that being said, I took my IB test for Math Studies earlier this month. Now, I thought all the stress would be relieved until June because that’s when finals are, but I was truly mistaken.

Week after week I was given new projects, tests, quizzes, assignments...you name it. There was never a time where I could sit down and blog like I am now. DISCLAIMER: I can only blog now since I have a 4-day weekend and even then I still have many assignments to catch up on.

SO WHAT NOW?

I officially have about a week and half left of school, so until then I’ll be on a mini-hiatus. I’m going to try and pre-schedule a few posts but don’t hold onto my word on this one.

Towards mid-June I will be back and active in the blogosphere so I am really excited for that. I’ve been feeling really distant from social media and WP so getting back into routine will be refreshing. My blog stats have been at its’ all time low this past month so I’m ready for new comments and new interactions!

With that being said I did reach over 800 followers on Twitter (I don’t know how) this past month so that’s pretty awesome. I do wish to be more active on IG as well, so stay tuned for that. I have a ton of emails to catch up on as well so I apologize if you’ve contacted me via email and I haven’t responded!

IF YOU HAVE ANY POSTS THAT YOU’D LIKE ME TO READ/COMMENT LINK THEM DOWN BELOW!!! It would be impossible for me to go through everyone’s posts and read them, but if have posted something that you are proud of, let me know!!

As always, I miss you guys so much and again, I apologize for my sudden disappearance. I can’t wait to be officially back, my friends!! (:

How was your April and/or May? Any special plans this upcoming June? Did you read anything awesome this month?

Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…
