Life Updates-

Overall, September was a good month for me. I finally fully recovered from my illness and also picked up writing where I left off in August. But yeah my Camp NaNo project is still not finished, something or the other keeps coming up and this time it was my illness. I was only able to write about 5k words in August but from the middle of September I finally picked up my speed and I am sooo close to finishing it! I definitely want to participate in November’s NaNoWriMo, so I want to complete my current project withing the first week of October. I so hope I am successful. I have a story idea in mind that I want to work in November (P.S. It’s a Snow White retelling with alternate dimension thingy!) but I am stuck in the middle though I am getting support from the middle suckiness support group! xD It’s great to have a group of writers with whom you can talk, it’s even best when it’s your camp NaNo buddies!

My classes are going pretty great as well, but gosh I need to study mooooore! Nonetheless onto a Β more cheerful topic…

I turned 22 this Monday, a.k.a 26th September! *throws confetti everywhere* I was not keen was celebrating this year so I just decided that we’ll just go out for a family dinner (which was awesome btw!) but I also ended up with not one, but two freaking birthday cakes as present! Ha!

For my birthday, my mom gifted me Monster of Men by Patrick Ness which completed my Chaos walking trilogy set. Now I can finally binge read that series. I gifted myself Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon and A Monster Calls, also by Patrick Ness, I am especially excited to read the latter because I have heard only gooood things about this book and also the trailer looks awesome! Can’t wait for the movie.


Aaaaand that’s a wrap up! ❀
