Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2014


I can't believe that we are already a 1/3 into 2014, it will be 2015 before we know it






April was my first whole month of blogging and I published 24 posts, that is more than my first 3 months of blogging combined, which was a paltry 10 posts. I have learned a lot about blogging this past month and what I learned the most is that I still have a lot to learn. Other things I have learned is that blogging is hard work and requires a lot, A LOT, of time.The best thing I have learned about book blogging, aside from the fact that I love it, is that there is a huge book blogging community out there, way bigger than I even realised before I started and so far this community has been lovely and supportive. I hope to have many, many more months of blogging ahead of me.


April was a very lazy month for me, I spent most of it reading, watching TV or sat with my laptop glued to my lap. Next month probably won't be much better but I hope it will be.

I planned to spend April revising for my upcoming exams, but even as I write this I haven't done one bit of revision and the first exam is in 13 days. Oh well, I'm not worried (yet!!!).

I found a new house, yay, I just gotta wait for my housing association's approval of the swap and I will be good to go. I am so excited about the move, I am so looking forward to getting out of the country and into town and not having to catch a bus everyday. I am going to miss the beautiful country views and horses everywhere you look, and I am going to miss this house that my family moved into back in 1989. I am sure I will cry when I hand over the keys. But I need a new start and to be closer to university so I can actually get involved in the student experience and join societies and such. Those are things I can't currently do because buses to my village stop running after 5 o'clock and I like my bed, so I don't want to be camping on other peoples floors and I am to old for all that ;-)

All I have planned for May is revising and packing and if the sun comes out - reading in the sun.

How was your April?
Any plans for May?
