Depression; what DOESN’T work

Look, I don’t want to get into a chat about my mental health, and how I’m low-key constantly falling apart. Let’s just say that it’s not fun, at all, and I’m not dealing with it properly (classic me). So, although I haven’t really worked out what does help me yet, I do know I’m doing a whole heap of stuff at the moment that’s incredibly unhealthy. And ideally, these are things I’m going to start working on fixing!  Continue reading “Depression; what DOESN’T work”

October 2017 Wrap-Up; why do I keep disappearing?

Honestly, I do mean to post more often, but…. life, y’know? One day, hopefully soon, I’ll do a post on how my brain is A Mess, and how much that affects things like my blog, but not today! Today, I just want to catch you up on what I did get up to in October, and some plans for November (that I might actually stick to…).  Continue reading “October 2017 Wrap-Up; why do I keep disappearing?”

I’m an INFJ; what does that mean?

So a little while ago, I did one of those personality tests, and did a video on it, where I talked a bit about being an INFJ. Now, I thought we’d go into way more detail, and talk about what it all means. It’s fascinating stuff, and scarily accurate!16-personality-types.png

Strengths and Weaknesses

According to this, my main strengths are being “creative, insightful, inspiring, decisive, determined and passionate, and altruistic“. I want to say most of them are pretty accurate; decisive, though? I can’t decide anything, to start with. Once I’ve decided, though, I’m stuck on it, and good luck getting me to change my mind. I really like passionate, I think that’s a good word for me! And altruistic is something I really, really hope I am.  Continue reading “I’m an INFJ; what does that mean?”

30 Days of Readathon (part 2)

So, if you haven’t heard of Dewey’s readathon, you are missing out. Basically, it’s a 24 hour readathon that happens twice a year, and it’s definitely my favourite bookish event! This readathon, on October 21st, marks 10 years of Dewey’s, so to celebrate they’re doing “30 days of readathon” – the idea being a post a day of some sort of bookish favourite. I’m taking that idea and turning it into 3 posts of ten, and here, we have part 2.

Check out part one here 

Dewey's Readathon

20. Best. Like… ever? What a broad topic! You can’t even ask me that, it’s too much, I could never choose a “best.” Continue reading “30 Days of Readathon (part 2)”

To be completely honest, I had really low hopes for this book. The person who bought it for me isn’t a reader, and non-readers are really bad at picking for books for readers. Sorry, but it’s true! The other book she got me was pretty terrible, so I expected this one to be the same. So really, we should be pretty excited this got a three star rating!
