• Mid-Year Wrap Up,  Quarterly Wrap Up

    apr – jun 2020; it’s a wrap

    Another very late wrap-up, but well. This year has been really long, hasn’t it? I was so hopeful in the first quarter that things could not get worse. I was wrong. I guess hindsight really is 20/20, eh? Eh? But seriously though, while the lockdown here in Malaysia is not as strict as the first few months, we’re still taking care. I am immuno-compromised so i’m trying not to take too many risks, but I do have doctor’s appointments pretty much every month that I have to go for, and so we’ve been eating out those few days. My reading has been all over the place – May and June…

  • Quarterly Wrap Up

    jan – mar 2020; it’s a wrap

    A little bit late, but well, I haven’t been blogging much at all, have I? I think I’m in another reading slump? I don’t know, on the one hand, these past three months have been good! I’ve been writing some, I’ve been reconnecting with old fandoms – but every time I try and interact again with the online book community, I find myself retreating to a few bloggers I can trust because there is so much Drama and so little nuance in the way the big names talk about things. I feel like that is why I haven’t been blogging or booktubing at all since the year has started. There…

    oct – dec 2019; it’s a wrap

    Am I two months late for a wrap up and fallen behind on everything blog and booktube? Yup! The last three months of 2019 were good on a lot of fronts, but in November, my external harddrive crashed, and I panicked about losing EVERYTHING on it. Because of that, I stepped back from blogging and my booktube, and even though we managed to get all my data back, it has taken me until now to get back on here! I have been writing, however, and I have made the step to look for freelance writing jobs. I also celebrated my birthday in October! That was great, and after that, I…

  • Quarterly Wrap Up

    jul – sept 2019; it’s a wrap

    These last three months have been A Lot in many ways. I won’t be going in depth, I think, because the last three months seem like they lasted forever. I feel like nothing much happened in July? The clay classes I was going for were great – I’ve finished a number of projects, and am on project number 4. I’m very proud of how things are going, but being creative on this front means I haven’t been as productive on the writing front. August had a very good thing and a very bad thing happen. My cousin had her baby! An adorable little baby boy who is growing so fast.…

  • Quarterly Wrap Up

    apr – jun 2019; it’s a wrap

    I almost forgot that June is coming to an end, that the second quarter of the year was coming to an end. Oops? Compared to the first quarter of the year, this one seems a little less intense. A lot less seems to have happened, in the last three months. I mentioned in my last wrap-up that we were going to India for our Sikh New Year, and we did! I’ve only been to India in April once, and that was only for a couple of days when my sister had her engagement party there, so this was very different. The heat was intense, and we were a little worried…

  • Quarterly Wrap Up

    jan – mar 2019; it’s a wrap

    I am trying something a little bit new! Last year, I tried to do the monthly wrap-up thing and failed miserably, so I wound up doing a mid-year and end of the year wrap-up only. But this year, I’m going to try a quarterly wrap-up. Major updates every three months. Should be managable. Right? I’m going to try and find a style for this that suits me, so next time around my wrap-up might look and sound a little different. Who really knows what can happen in three months. Let’s start with how life and family have been, shall we? Most recently, my daughter turned 2! We held her birthday…
