December Wrap-Up

Stay in and (1)

This year, I’ve decided to start doing monthly wrap-ups. You can look forward to these posts on the first of every month, with the previous month being discussed.

Deciding what I wanted to include in these posts was hard, but in each of these, you’ll find: books I’ve read this month, posts published, as well as news (be it personal or public). Enjoy!

Books I’ve Read:

Beneath the CitadelI must be in some kind of slump, of which I blame on finals, because all I’ve read this month is a single novel. I got Beneath the Citadel from Miss Print via her ARC Adoption program. I was able to finish that one while finals were going on, and then after that? Nothing. I don’t know what my problem is, but I’ve been doing a lot more TV watching than before. Now that I’m on break, I hope to get a lot more reading done though.

Published Posts:

During the semester, I didn’t really have the time to do a lot of blogging or reading. But since I’ve gotten on break, I’ve been able to do a lot of blogging. I hope to be getting back to a regular posting schedule now that I have a month break.

Misc. News:

As I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, I just finished my first semester at college! And, surprisingly, I finished with straight A’s! I started my first semester at college with a 4.0 GPA, and I have never felt more accomplished at school. I know it won’t last long, but it’s still an amazing feeling. More college news is that I changed my major from professional writing and published to literature.

I also quit my job at the campus library. I was really excited when I first got it, but after being there, it was one of the most boring things I’ve ever experienced. I would stand at the desk (stand! they didn’t even provide chairs, even when your shift was 4+ hours), and they would have me do homework or read. I was just so bored, and more than often, the bosses would misgender me and complain about other supervisors to me. I just felt too awkward and bored to continue working there.

I’m currently on break, and I’ll be on break until the end of January. So I’ll have plenty of time to read and schedule some blog posts so I won’t run out of posts so early like I did last semester. I’ll also be working full time over the summer, so I honestly don’t know how this blog will go after this break :/ Maybe with my job done, I’ll have a bit more “me time”.

Either way, with break on, I’ll be getting reading and writing done. Here’s hoping that I’m right!

  1. I’m sorry the library job didn’t work out, Avery 😦 That’s crazy that they’re so unprofessional. If you’re thinking of getting another job, I hope you find one that fits better. I’m so glad to hear that your first semester went well grades-wise, though! It’s always such a rush to get straight A’s when you weren’t entirely expecting them 🙂 I hope you have a lovely 2019!

    • Yea, it was weird! I was used to unprofessionalism from my previous job (Pizza Hut, where I frequently cussed at my three managers because they weren’t pulling their weight, and they gave my a raise for it.) But in a university library? No thanks.

      And it was a rush! I didn’t think I’d get A’s in two of my classes, but I somehow managed it 😂 Thank you, and I hope you have a lovely 2019 too!!
