I feel like it has been quiet here. A little too quiet. That’s what happens when you have a health scare and depression bites you in the ass. You just feel loss, unmotivated, or your mind is fixated on other things that become priority. 2018 was one hell of a year, there was a lot going on. I was fighting a lot of bad but trying to find the good. There was many moments of good and great and those are the moments I am treasuring.
2018 was also the year I made some realizations. Particularly about myself, my life and a direction I want to go in. You’ll see more of that on the blog coming up though. I’ve been in a particular mood, the kind where it’s large scale reevaluation. I read a lot this year too, because sometimes I just read my feelings or read to get out of specific feelings.
Here’s what’s going down for 2019 on this blog (or my goals rather…)
- I am going to try posting twice a week. I was doing every other week and I found that got to bee overwhelming when life and work were not co-operating. I’m going to try for Tuesdays and Fridays for a bit and see how that goes. I am hoping it will help me stay consistent.
- You are going to see a lot more personal posts, as well as bookish posts. I have lots of stuff I want to ta;l about and mini features I am bringing back. I also owe you all a post dedicated to my trip to Japan last September, but I haven’t been in the head space to write it (short answer: I miss Japan).
- You will see a lot of back list reviews. I got into a period where I wasn’t in the mood to read any ARCs, so you’ll be seeing a lot of older titles being mixed in with newer stuff. This is a part of my goals this year is to not fall behind as badly as I did towards the end.
- Lastly, to give myself the power to say it’s okay if I don’t feel like posting or put a hiatus up without feeling guilt. 2019 is going to be a different, more self-reflecting year for me and my goal is to have more adventures that don’t feel forced (like selling a house or moving).
Here’s hoping I can stay consistent. I hope you enjoy the posts as they start rolling in. Happy 2019, and let’s try to start the year off right!
