April 2016 Wrap-Up

Posted April 30, 2016 by Stormy in Books / 4 Comments

lifelately

This month seemed so long, so for once I am NOT surprised it’s time to roll the calendar over to the next month. Now that I’ve been at my new library job a few months it’s really starting to pick up, and of course April is crunch time right before the semester ends. My last assignment is due NEXT Saturday, so by this time next week I’ll be done or at least very, very close.

For the most part, though, April was a good month. It wasn’t very eventful, because I’ve spent most of my free time working on school, but I feel pretty good about things. Now that I’ve been in my new town a couple of months I’m feeling more settled. I’m excited to explore it more once my semester ends since I’m not taking summer classes.

Watched

I started watching the second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! I’m only a few episodes in, though, and I have pretty mixed feelings(I pretty much hated at least one episode so far, but then I really liked one too, so we’ll see).

I’m of course still going with my Gilmore Girls rewatch. I’m getting close to the tail end of season 4. I’m guessing I’ll fly through the rest of my rewatch once classes are over(are you sensing a theme in this recap? I am so glad I’m not taking summer classes).

Listened

My March/April playlist:

Read

I read 13 books in April, which is not bad considering how heavy my school workload was this month. I read 7 comics/graphic novels, 1 audiobook, 1 nonfiction book, and 4 novels.

Month Completed: March

Every month, I think of doing a monthly wrap-up like I know so many of my favorite bloggers normally do. And every month, I forgot until the 5th or 6th of the next month and then give up. But NOT this month! Hooray! Unfortunately, I’m writing this post from my dad’s computer, not my own, […]
