Happy Sunday! This week has been a really horrible reading week and I even “participated” in the 24 in 48 Readathon. I tried. I honestly did, but I was so busy this weekend. I had a lot going on so I read a total of…. 3 HOURS! Lol I failed so so badly. Besides the failed attempt at the Readathon, I set up a bullet journal. I am very excited about this because I used a journal that I had lying around my house. The purpose behind the bullet journal is to have to-do lists all in one place, basically a more efficient to-do list. I am always making to-do lists and can’t wait until I actually get the hang of it. You have different symbols for different tasks. All the information is found on the bullet journal website. If you’re interested just look up bullet journal setup on YouTube. I have an Erin Condren Life Planner for 2015 and cannot wait to use it, but this bullet journal will be carried in my purse instead of my backpack for school. I will transfer things like homework and school events to my bullet journal from my planner, and transfer necessary to-do lists to my planner. Seems a little redundant, but I’m still excited. I highly suggest looking up bullet journaling if you like having a set to-do list that you cross off. Other than my exciting paper goods, I have watched a lot of YouTube this week… mostly about planners and bullet journals. #SorryNotSorry. Anyway, I plan to finish The Book of Charlie soon, I will read tonight. I will start Take Me Tomorrow after that, and I am so excited to read it because Shannon A. Thompson is one of my all time favorite authors.

Happy Sunday! Today was a very good reading day for me! I think I’m finally on my way out of this couple-month-long reading slump. I just sat down and read and it really felt relaxing. Reading hasn’t felt relaxing to me in a while and I missed it. There will be a lot of posts up on the blog this week because I will be finishing A Discovery of Witches tomorrow, King Dork within the next week for book club, and Of Mice and Men for novel. On top of all of those posts I will be starting a Blogger Spotlight featuring new bloggers that I think need a bigger audience. I also got tagged in the Liebster Blog Award so that post will be up this week as well. I am trying to be more active as things have slowed down a bit. No more marching band (sad, but glad to be done for the season) and football is almost over. Slacking so much on posting lately! Going to change that :)
