October wrap-up, favourites and other

Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS

“October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces.”

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Dear readers,

October came and went by quickly and slowly at the same time. As it is my favourite month of the year, I was waiting for many things during it. It was my birthday, my best friend’s birthday, Halloween and I had a concert. I felt as if I was constantly waiting for something but at the same time everything happened too fast. However, for once, I made out the best of every day. My birthday was the best one I had so far, even though it had been disappointing for a part, and I had a lot of fun for Halloween.

October was still a hard month for me. My mental health has been at its worse and I kept feeling bad. I didn’t know what to do and let the sadness consumed me without realising it. I also went to the doctor and the whole thing made me feel both good and bad. I am not gonna lie – it was hard. But I made it and I can say that today I am working on getting better.

The intimidating TBR tag

Copie de Copie de Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS

Dear readers,

I started 2016 with more than 70 books in my TBR pile. That, was intimidating. Realising that having such a huge amount of un-read books was stressing me out and messing up with my anxiety, I decided to start the operation Kill The Beast. And, surprisingly, it worked.

To this day, I only have 20 books on my TBR pile and it hasn’t been really growing much. I now love my small TBR; I have enough books to let me stare at them for hours before deciding which one to read but not enough to drive me nuts.

This is why I wanted today to do a tag about our TBRs and to present you in a not-so-funny way all the books that I have left to read.

(This tag was created by Jean Bookishthoughts but the original creator’s video is now private.)

On anxiety, cylothymia, social media and me

Dear readers,

As today is #WorldMentalHealthDay, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to start posting about mental health. If you don’t know, I suffer from cyclothymia and anxiety, and talking about it is important to me. It would have helped me a lot when I was younger to find those kind of articles, and this is why I decided to start posting about it.

For this first post, I will talk about the impact of social media in my life next to my anxiety and cyclothymia.

TW: hospital, suicide, coma

My #Victober TBR | 2017

Copie de Wanderlust GIFT IDEAS (3)

Dear readers,

I cannot believe that it finally is October. You may not know, but it actually is my favourite month of the year. As for someone who hates the heat and who is literally allergic to the sun (I swear, I am a nightmare), Autumn is my paradise. Seeing all the leaves on the floor, being able to wear my sweaters again, walking home while it’s dark outside and working with the sound of the rain make me more than happy and I now feel alive again. In a few days, it’ll be my birthday then Halloween and I can’t wait to properly enjoy this month.

This year, however, October is even more special to me, and it’s because I’m participating in #Victober.
