It’s the second day of the new year. Tomorrow I go back to work and fantasy about the next vacation time we have. Don’t get me wrong — I love my job and what I do but I love not doing anything even more.
The first half of 2018 I was giving up on becoming a teacher. I graduated in December of 2016 and wasn’t gainfully employed like almost everyone I knew was. It was frustrating.
So, I decided to join Netgalley and start blogging more about the books I’m reading. I was already book blogging and reading book blogs but this time I was going to go full in.
Plus, I had no job so there wasn’t a whole lot I was doing anyway.
July came around we decided to move out of the house. I was worried because once again — I was the only person in this relationship not employed. My boyfriend’s job was heavy on the work hours and it happened. Love that we’ve moved. I love having my own place so far no regrets.
The start of August I interviewed for a position that would start in like a few days. I had a feeling I was not going to get it — I mean, I’ve been interviewing since 2016 and no one wanted me. But I am now in my second semester at this job — it has its challenges due to the students and my medical problems but I’m still survivin’
ANYWAY TO THE BOOKS!!
Since I was unemployed for most of 2018 I had a LOT of time to read books. I didn’t meet my 125 goal for the reading challenge on Goodreads. BUT I forgot to drop down the book count to match how many books I did make it through. Many consider that cheating but I’m just challenging myself so why does it matter?
My goal was to read a lot and remember most of them. I usually read through things so fast that by the end of the year I’m like.. I read that?? Me??? Are you sure?? So, the reviews help keep them in memory.
