2015 Wrap-up

If I have to describe 2015 in one word, it’s BUSY. From job interviews to certification exams to that big project I was - am - working on.. it was tiring. There were a lot of sleepless nights. I had even gone without sleep for 32 hours straight once last month.

But it wasn't all bad. I had a lot to be grateful for this past year. I got to hangout with my classmates from elementary, high school and college! I met up with some of my elementary friends last November and I realized that it's been almost 10 years! I literally haven't seen them since I went away for high school. My high school batch also got together quite a few times this year - we always try to meet up with everyone whenever there is a chance. Also went out with my college buddies whom I haven't seen since graduation earlier this year!

That's a lot of reconnecting :)

This year I also discovered Bookstagram. I can't believe how unaware I was of this before! Now I am in love.

2015 Reading Goals and Challenges

I believe I failed one of the three reading challenges I signed up for this 2015. I reached my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal to read 100 books!

For my 2015 Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge I set my goal to read 6-10 witchy books and I read seven but was only able to review four of them. For the fourth quarter of the Review Pile Reading Challenge I had gone with 9-16 books as my end goal but I fell a bit short. I only read and reviewed 8 books. I honestly thought I had reached my goal but I counted wrong :(

2016 Goals

My number one goal this 2016 is to finish that big project I am currently working on so I can finally breathe.

Another is obviously to read more books. READ MORE, BUY LESS. Finally trim down/annihilate that physical and for-review TBR. I'd add bookshelf reorganization here except it will do no good unless I actually have a new bookshelf to fill in, which I don't :( So my floor remains a temporary home for some of my books until a miracle happens. lol

AND TAKE A FREAKING VACATION. Like, seriously. Sleep. Travel. Earn millions.
