I still haven’t quite got back into the rythm of blogging yet. How did I do this twice a week for so long? I suddenly feel like a newbie blogger again.
A lot happened in March. Kind of.
Without going on, I worried. A LOT. Probably about nothing at all too. I think my problem is that I’m stuck in the frame of mind that all this will pass but then it doesn’t. Maybe I actually need to do something to take my mind of things instead of all that crap being the first and last thing on my mind as soon as I wake up and sleep. Usually these ‘down spells’ last for a week tops but it’s somehow been happening for three months and I’m kinda struggling to reverse it. Anyone any advice?
March also was the month I finally finished editting my first draft of my NaNo and I’m about to go through it for the second time to make all the changes. Writing a novel is hard. Hats off to the many authors out there who have written, completed, and published a novel. That will be me one day, hopefully.
I also went to the Lake District for a weekend and I loved it. The thing I loved about it is that there wasn’t anything to do. Nothing that I usually do at the weekends anyway. I usually spend the weekends shopping, I won’t lie. So it was amazing to get out of the house for 12 hours straight and go walking. We found some amazingly beautiful places and I’d just love to go back so I can see more. There’s so many places that we didn’t quite reach because of the dark nights so it’s definitely somewhere I’d like to revisit at some point.
Easter also happened but I’m pretty sure you’re already aware of that. We spent the weekend with my Nanna and Grandad who are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. We took them for a meal on Sunday with extended family and then again today for their actual date. I love days spent with the family <3
I also (kind of) went on my first run – which didn’t go quite the way I was expecting. I thought i’d be capable of legging it the whole way around the rez but that definitely didn’t happen. It pretty much consisted of me apologising to my brother whenever I had to stop (which was a lot). My brother happens to be a qualified personal trainer and so I was forced to carry on. I’m not quite sure if thats a good or bad thing, I’m sure time will tell. (Soz Jord – “keep running!”).
This month I think I have FINALLY got my love of reading back and I’m genuinely overjoyed, you have no idea. Life is boring without books. I’ve managed three so far this month but I have about 40 pages left of my current read so 4 books in 1 month is definitely a big improvement from my terrible two books in two months. I feel I can finally look at my goodreads notifications without feeling guilty, and maybe buy a few books. Yes.
All in all I liked March. I actually feel like my year might actually be picking up. Woop.
What did you do this March? What books did you read?
