|Cupcakes make me happy.|
So, as some of you may know, I'm on a pretty long holiday at the moment. 10 months, to be exact. I know it sounds like a lot but this year has passed by SO fast! I only have 3 more months until my university course starts.
The thing about having so much free time is that you're always going to worry that you're wasting it. I had a pretty long holiday two years ago and at the end of it, I regretted not doing more things during the free time that I had. The only things I did during those school-free 6 months were that I started this blog and participated in NaNoWriMo.
During this holiday, I've been trying to do as much as I can, but I still get lazy and end up wasting hours on the internet
- got my driving license
- joined a volunteer program
- watched way too many movies and tv shows
- became an editor for a young writer on wattpad
- met a LOT of new people
- read some amazing books
- became part of an online writing team
I think I'm quite happy with the things I've been doing but there was a lot more stuff I wish I had done. Like, I wanted to learn photoshop and work on my novel regularly (sort out the plot, write a second draft and clear things up so when people ask me what it is about, I actually have an answer!).
Most of you don't know this but it was my birthday a few weeks ago, on the 7th of June. I was supposed to publish this post somewhere around that time but it took longer than I expected. Yes, I procrastinate THAT much.
Anyways, my brother (it happens to be HIS birthday today!) gave me an awesome birthday gift, these two books:
I had been dying to read Mitch Albom's books because a friend of mine had told me so much about them. I completed 'tuesdays with Morrie' a few days ago and gosh, I honestly think every one should read this book. And if reading isn't your thing, then watch the movie!
I can't wait to read 'the five people you meet in heaven' next.
Speaking on books and reading, I'm going to be part of a book blog tour next month. Not sure how these things work because it's my first time but I've been given a copy of the ebook which I haven't started reading yet. It's a collection of short stories by multiple authors. I will be reviewing it on this blog soon and the awesome part is that I get to interview one of the authors!
I'm not really sure what to write about in a life update post so I just ranted on about all the stuff I've been doing.
I love getting emails from followers, it still amazes me that people actually go out of their way to talk to me via email, you guys totally make my day :D
I have SO many blogs to catch up on, sorry I haven't been reading/commenting, I'll get to it asap!
