It's 2016 and I'm Back

Hello, bookish people! Happy new year!

*party poppers*
(too lazy to look up appropriate gifs and pictures. LOL I am starting my 2016 RIGHT!)

So... I've been gone a while. I'm not going to make excuses, not gonna lie. I was just... too lazy to blog? Between working and lying in bed (because that's the only thing I can do after work. Hah! I'm so sad), I simply did not have the energy to read and/or blog. I can get a few pages in everyday but it usually takes me a loooong while to finish an entire book. Writing a blog post about it after? FEELS LIKE A CHORE!

I'd like to say that's all going to change now. But I won't. Because I don't know what the future holds! (I can get dramatic at times) Seriously though, I can only promise to make a better effort this year. On top of that, I promise to keep it simple. Often times, the only hindrance to me clicking the PUBLISH button is my laughable standards. Yep, like a lot of bloggers out there, I pressure myself. I've said it multiple time: BLOG FOR YOURSELF! But what if your standards are getting to you? Sometimes, even if I'm pretty much done with my short review, I stop and think to myself isn't this a bit too short? Maybe I should do a full review? Are people going to care?! (Yeah, it's not fun being inside my head. It's noisy) This year, I will push myself to click that orange publish button once I'm done with a post. No more second guessing! That's a realistic resolution I can keep. 

I also found some bookish resolutions while browsing Twitter and Instagram and I got inspired by them. I plan on tackling one every month. Here they are:

JANUARY: Finish two young adult books I put on hold and never opened again

FEBRUARY: Read a non-fiction book

MARCH: Finish A Game of Thrones (because the series resumes in April!!! The storyline's already far off from the first book but it's the thought that counts)

APRIL: Read a May release and post a review and hype it like crazy... if I liked it, of course.

MAY: Read a poetry book

JUNE: Read a book in a day (this is gonna be tough for me. I need at least two full days to finish a book. Do I have to file a vacation leave for this? Set up alarms? Get started around 3AM? GAME FACE. ON.)

JULY: Read a book that intimidates me

AUGUST: Read two books by a Filipino authors (hashtag LOVE LOCAL!) August is Buwan/Linggo ng Wika (what do we celebrate in schools now?) or National Language Week/Month. I'm hoping I can read at least one book written in Filipino. 

SEPTEMBER: Read two ebooks I bought on Amazon in 2015 (I have plenty to choose from. Hello, 1-Click monster!)

OCTOBER: Read the book before watching the film (A Monster Calls will premier this month. I Googled it)

NOVEMBER: Dedicate a month of reading books Dianne of Oops I Read A Book Again likes/loves/pitches. Background: We're close friends but somehow we don't have similar taste in books. It's rare to find a book that we both like (or hate). So to make my November fun, I'll read books she recommends. Because it's her birth month. That pretty much sums it up.

DECEMBER: Read a Christmasy book! (of course)

Did you set any goals or resolutions for this year? As always, let me know in the comments! I would love to hear about them! (Or, you know, check if I can replace one of my resolutions with yours hahahahaha)

I missed this :)

In that case, you will certainly pass the test. Moreover, consider your body mass, age, and physical condition before choosing the urine so the sample is compatible with the physiological factors. Q: Which one is better — powdered synthetic urine or liquid synthetic urine? A: Both powdered and liquid synthetic urines have their own sets of advantages and disadvantages.Even though you can’t find an answer for your search for “Quick Fix near me,” it’s readily available online straight from the manufacturer. Many people swear by this option for all their synthetic urine needs.If you’re on a budget but still need a quality product to submit for analysis, Quick Fix synthetic urine is the best option you can get.
