Anything but books tag

I saw Emma @EmmasChapter doing this tag the other day and wnated to give it a try. Emma was also on my last Book Blogger Hop!

All these questions are about my life outside of reading so I expect my answers will be quite short… most of them are pictures

What’s on your heart? Tag

“DO EVERYTHING IN LOVE.” – 1 CORINTHIANS 16:14

This is a less bookish approach than I’m used to take on the blog but since the amazing Bibi from Bibi’s Book Blog tagged me I’m gonna do it! The theme is love and romance and although I’m not a big fan of those for myself I do enjoy reading them

THE RULES:

  • Thank the person who nominated you to participate.
  • Link back to the original post (Purple Rose’s & Dollfaced Writer’s)
  • Attach an image that inspires you regarding the month’s theme (or use the original).
  • Talk about what this month’s theme means to you.
  • Answer the questions.

The Good Immigrant

(Not gonna lie, that’d be a kick ass title for a book) Alas, this is a rare instance of a non-book-related post

The other day on twitter I saw debate over wich kind of immigrant people from the US are “fine” “taking in” (meaning they’d most likely not tear-gas their families of kidnap their children) And me, having been a child immigrant myself, I decided to write a thing on here, just to get it off of my chest.

This was also motivated by my own country’s issues with immigration, particularly with Venezuelan refugees.

WARNING: This ended up longer than I expected–

Life Update: A book a month and travel plans

So… the title pretty much says it? No? Well,

I’ll be going into a sort-of-but-not-really-a-book buying ban because…

I’m going to Europe!*

*eventually

More exactly I’ll be traveling to England, Scotland, Ireland and Spain. It’s a trip that I’ve been meaning to take since forever and I finally have enough money and time. The thing is that I don’t have much money so to save as much as I can I decided to limit all my expenses, this, sadly, includes books. For the forseeable future I’ll buy only one book each month (from the 2019 new releases) and the rest of books I’ll read will be from those I already own (working to Beat The Backlist)

The plan is to visit London, Edinburgh, Dublin, and Galway in two weeks (sleep is for the weak) and then spend a full week in Spain with all my old friends. I’ll be traveling with my little sister and the plan is to sleep in hostels and walk all day , seeing as much as possible. I also have a special itinerary of all the literary places I want to see while we’re there and I’ll try to upload photos on here.

There’s a chance we’ll be traveling as soon as next month so if I suddenly drop out the face of the Earth… well, you know where to find me.

Also, if you have any suggestions of places we should visit while on those cities they are more than welcome!

Migraine Awareness Month

Because I haven’t been able to write a thing in over two weeks and my head hurts.

June is Migraine Awareness Month and since I have migraines, I’m making you all aware of it.

For those of you who don’t know, migraines are strong, often debilitating, headaches and, for some people, they happen regularly.

I was diagnosed with migraines when I was 9. I’m 23 now and suffer from chronic migraines; this means that I have headaches more than 15 days a month. It sucks.

I will speak of my own experiences further down but if you only get one thing out of this post I’d rather it be this:  Some migraine studies estimate that 13 percent of adults in the U.S. population has migraines, and 2-3 million migraine suffers are chronic.

Meaning? You are not alone. Continue reading “Migraine Awareness Month”

Future Me Tag

I took this tag from Kathy, from Books and Munches, go see her answers!

The future is a mystery but that never stopped anyone from dreaming or dreading what may happen. Today’s tag is all about how we hope things will turn out.

In my family each New Year we ask ourselves the same thing Where will we be next year? This is as much a philosophical as a literal question. Life has moved us a lot so I learnt to always expect the unexpected and enjoy whatever comes at me. Continue reading “Future Me Tag”
