Birthday Favorites

I intended to solely have my ‘Birthdays’ post covering my birthday, but since I had a lot of fun this weekend, I wanted to write a post about some of my birthday favorites!

I turned 24, so in regards to that, it wasn’t that much of a milestone for me. I do feel like 2019 is going to bring some positive changes to my life, so maybe being 24 will be a good thing!

I always seem to read posts from other bloggers who tend to have more of a negative view on birthdays. I get the same way. My view has improved a lot from how I used to be, so I DO tend to have a good time celebrating these days. Since my 24th birthday is this Saturday, I thought I’d share my thoughts on birthdays!

Life Update – January 22, 2019


I have had a few positive changes to my life so far this year, so I thought I’d write a life update post for this week! I started 2019 off with quite a few aspirations, and I’m happy to say that I’ve been taking steps to completing them even though it’s only been a month. In this post, I’m also going to include a few things that I’ve been enjoying so far at the end of the post!

Shyness and Anxiety


Being an anxiously quiet and shy kid, I received plenty of remarks growing up about how I was “antisocial” or how I “probably secretly hate everyone.” Especially when I was a little girl who cared a little too much, these comments hurt. I wanted friends, I cared about people. My school system was consistently changing the schools I attended (even though I didn’t even move), so as soon as I made friends, I felt like I was pushed away somewhere else to restart the whole cycle again. I struggled with fitting in. I certainly didn’t want to be like everyone else, but I wanted people who would be in my corner and vice versa. I also tended to be a perfectionist, and I wanted everything to be a certain way. I didn’t want to say something silly and get rejected for something that I said.

What I’m Reading – January 2019


For 2019, I’m aiming to read two books a month. I have such a variety of books that I plan on reading for January (and probably a bit in February too). I have many interests, and I feel like this list certainly shows it! This month I have included some poetry, mystery, comics, and nonfiction on my reading list. I honestly read far too many books at the same time, which is probably why I like to read different genres (they’re less likely to get confused with each other).

If you’re curious, I already started off the year with Rainbow Rowell’s “Landline”. I did not include it here because I finished it earlier this month, but if you’re interested, it was a fun read! Anyways, here’s the list of books I’m currently looking into!
