Monthly Wrap Up: April 2016

Posted May 1, 2016 in Monthly Wrap Ups / Leave a comment!

This month went by WAY faster than I was expecting. It was a good month though I think because I got lots of reading done and ordered a few books.

THREE EXCITING THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH

  • I finished the April A to Z Challenge again this year! If you’ve been around my blog this month you’ve probably seen my posts. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to do it next year!
  • My wonderful friend Alice got me a signed copy of Forest of Ruin by Kelley Armstrong. I’m so excited to have that one my shelves!
  • I bought a brand new (and expensive) computer which I’m very happy with. I can easily run all of my graphics programs and even play some games every once and a while.

THREE NEW OBSESSIONS

  • I’ve finally started a blog redesign that I hope won’t take very long. I’m looking to self host so if you guys have hosting options for me then let me know!
  • I also have TV now, which I didn’t have for the last year-ish. I’m excited that I can actually watch some of my shows during the time they air instead of the next day.
  • Preordering books. I have a spreadsheet of books I need to preorder and I’ve been trying to do that this month. Though Amazon sucks and only ships things on the release date. 🙁
