August ‘ 16 Recap

~My Life~

I am forever trying to figure out the balance between work and blogging. I mean to write posts on my day off, but I enjoy the break too much to do so. It’s a huge problem and I don’t like it. 😦

~Favorite Post~

I have so many posts to choose from, it’s such a hard decision…

I’ll go with Top Twelve Books I Never Reviewed

~Blogosphere Participation~

I tried and failed with Bout of Books. 😦 I thought I’d be able to handle reading before and after work, but I should have known better. I was always so tired or worrying about other things to read.

I sent and received my first #OTSPSecretSister package for the month, which was really great. My SS picked a winter theme and I loved it.

~New Music~

~Favorite Album~

carly_rae_jepsen_side_b

~Album I Wish Had Gotten More Love~

Carly Rae Jepsen’s Side B

It deserves all the listens.

And I wish I had listened to Britney’s Glory.

~Musical News~

Anastasia releases its artwork for Broadway.

~TV News~

Pretty Little Liars is cancelled.

It’s a little sad but also not because that show’s long over-due. Though, it was one of the two-four shows I had left that I was regularly watching.

~Interesting Articles~

I saw these two articles being shared around Twitter and I really liked the insight. I think culture and mental health topics go really under the radar with as much attention they get.

As Suicide Rates For Black Children Rise, Protecting Emotional Health is Vital

I Don’t Need To Pray About It, I Need To Go To Therapy

~My Addictions~

Carly Rae Jepsen Side B

~Music Purchases~

Cry, Roses and Store by Carly Rae Jepsen

~TV Show/Movie Purchases~

I bought New York Minute, seasons 1-3 of Gilmore Girls, Awkward season 1 and completed my season 2 of Veronica Mars on Itunes.

Itunes also had season 2 of Black-Ish on sale so I picked that up as well.

~What I’ve Been Watching~

I started Inuyasha on the 7th and now I’m up to 74. I would be much higher, but I kind of took two weeks off watching it. And the website I watched it on has the videos messed up. 😦 Sad.

I’m somewhat back to watching Buffy, which I’m enjoying after making it through that one episode that took three tries…


How was your last month? Did you read any really good books or receive good books? Do you have trouble with blogging with “real life” going on? Any tips for that? I could use them.
