Memo Pad: April Wrap-up

I know I keep saying that this ridiculous run I'm on with my reading challenge is going to end soon but this month has been another scarily awesome month for books. Not only did I read the eight books I've been averaging a month so far this year but I actually ended up reading….13? Granted… Continue reading Memo Pad: April Wrap-up

New Year, Same Me

I kind of hate resolutions. Especially the ones that say to do something different. New year new you. Those never work for me but I do like seeing goals. Things I want to achieve which are normally a continuation of what I'm already doing. I guess my biggest struggle is to keep doing things not start (anyone who knows me know I start too many things!!). And goals help to keep me motivated and not give in.
