Hi everyone! Hope you’re all doing okay. Today I am going to be doing a March Wrap Up post. I know we’re already almost a week in April, but I really wanted to do this, so here it is!
P.S. I would love to get some feedback on the image I designed below. It’s a step forward in my designing abilities and I really hope you like it!
This month was a whirlwind and definitely one that I will remember forever. To be honest, it started out great for me. I had just finished my annuals and was ready to begin a month of reading and writing before my new session started. Alas, just as I was getting out of my short break of doing nothing but reading and watching movies all day long, this happened.
Now, I will be completely honest and say I am not good at dealing with stress. I don’t think anyone is good at that. What happened caused my worrying scale to rise up and my reading to plummet.
After my annuals, I was awaiting the results. I had given the exams and was confident about my results and was quite looking forward to it. 13th March was the last day I went out of my house. We were supposed to go to collect our results on the 16th but instead got them online on the 27th.
And needless to say, online classes began for me and all fellow students. And I won’t lie, they are a pain.
But, on a more positive note, there were some good things that came out of all of this. First, I made an Instagram account at the ripe old age of 15. It was one of the “YES!” moments in my life. I had previously not been allowed to go on social media. Any child who grew up in a strict environment can relate to me here. I just can’t explain the happiness. Username: thebookofjess2004
I got into reading a whole new genre. Murder Mystery. It was a genre I did not divulge into previously. But, during this time, something changed. I promise I did not become mentally unhinged. I just really wanted to try something new.
I finally had the guts to watch two horror movies. I watched the Quiet Place and Better Watch Out. I am also a major fan of Doctor Who. While watching the fourth season I had skipped two episodes because they fell into the “Horror” genre. I finally watched them. I have finally reached the stage where I can watch horror movies without internally screaming. So, that’s really good! Nothing with ghosts though, they are terrifying.
I reached 500 followers! Thank you!!!
I am currently working on a Project. It is my own personal project, not school-related. I am proud to say that I have progressed but you will get to know in a few weeks. Just a hint, it was inspired by a short story called “Venturing” which I wrote on my Stock Images Inspired Stories post. Here’s the link if you want to check it out! – Click here! I am really excited for everyone to read it and I promise it’s going to be worth the wait.

One Of Us Is Lying – Karen M. Mc.Manus||Book Review||
In brief, this month was…unexpected.
I am very grateful to the people who are working so hard during this time. We all appreciate you and are so very very thankful to you. I know bloggers out there who have family members working, some of them are in direct contact with the virus. I want you to know the blogging community is a family and we all got your back!
Be safe, stay home, be healthy. We’ll get through this. Let’s hope this month is better for all of us. Lots of love to everyone.
Thank you for reading.♥
