am i still alive and other questions

You’re alive.
Yes. Yes I am alive. I am quite sure of that. But in terms of blogging and publishing posts, no. I haven’t been quite active for, say, a month?
 
Why haven’t you blogged?
School is the major culprit, although my procrastination is a close companion. I spent quite a lot of time with my cats, doing nothing, eating, Youtube-ing and the like.
 
Did you do anything productive?
Well, around September I decided to reinforce my old self and discipline. I started exercising, writing, meditating daily. I had a point system, which is extremely helpful.
 
<sidenote> If you’re a procrastinator like me, having a point system would help you become the person you want to be. basically, it works a lot like HabitRPG (this site is also the bombdotcom), but a bit simpler. You assign a point, say 50 for each productive thing you did. Read 100 pages? 50 points! Wrote 500 words? A hundred! It brings the competitor/gamer/nerd in me. My daily quota is 200 points. I get to watch YouTube at the end of the day. </sidenote>
 
So. Are you still going to continue blogging?
Yes. Don’t worry about that. I won’t be doing my August Wrap Up since it’s too late for that (AndIAlsoCompletelyForgotEverythingThatHappenedInAugust) BUT I might add the books I read in my September Wrap Up.
 
What are you going to blog next? 
Let me go elementary on you: secret. *runs away giggling*
 
What are your goals? 
  • to blog every week (except if i have exams)
  • every saturday i’ll write a blog post and a review
  • i will assign little tasks to do before saturday (take pictures of my books, make a graphic)
Anything else?
Nope. I just hope I can do this. Pray for me guys.

Just kidding! But seriously www.goodreads.com/odeliat .

“Attachments” by Rainbow Rowell. (I LOVE that book)

TAG #1- DAY AND NIGHT TAG!

Hi.

I’m following my rule! *mentally high-fives self* Anyway, today I decided to make a tag. This is the DAY AND NIGHT TAG that was created by Katelyn. I found this in YouTube and I thought it was cool. There are 11 questions and all in all, it spells DAY AND NIGHT. *mind blown* Let us get started.

D: Do you read more in the morning or at night?

I read more in the morning. And at night. Basically, both. It doesn’t really matter as long as I’m comfortable and I’m reading.

A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?

Yes. Joan Bauer’s “Close to Famous” taught me not to give up on your dreams. “A Monster Calls” by Patrick Ness taught me that the truth will set you free. Aaand The Mysterious Benedict Society taught me that watching too much TV is REALLY bad.

Y:YA or Not?

I usually read YA, so YA!
