May has been a great month, and for one reason only: I PASSED THE WRITTEN EXAMS OF MY COMPETITION. Basically, if you don’t know, to become a literature teacher in France (to teach 11-18 years old) you have to pass a “competition” (un concours in French). First you have to pass the written exams (only the best are chosen) and then you have to pass the oral exams (again, only the best are chosen). So basically in a few weeks I’ll be taking the oral exams and if everything goes well I may be a literature teacher in September! How crazy is that?! (I also validated by second semester, woop woop!)
Obviously many other good things happened and I’m proud to say that my life is way healthier today. I’m not 100% okay but I’m getting there. At least July will be brighter!
So without further ado, let’s jump right in and wrap-up the month of May.

April has been a long, fun and tiring month. A lot of things happened in my life, both bad and good, but I always got up and kept trying to do better, to be better. I am extremely proud of myself for everything I survived this month and recovered from, and can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for me.
Without further ado, here is my april wrap-up!

It feels so weird to blog again. Do I have the time to do so? Not really. But I still want to take it because I miss it. I can’t say I’m fully back because my life is pretty hectic at the moment and I don’t know if I will ever have the time to write enough blog posts before responsabilities start catching me up again, but here I am nonetheless.
Anyway, I am back today with another wrap-up post!

I know that I haven’t been the most consistent and active blogger. What made it worse was that my computer has been broken while I was at the hospital this summer. Ever since it has been harder to blog, even though I really wanted to. Well, I am happy to say that I am now back and that I have a brand new computer. I can now finally blog at home and at peace, and I have so many ideas that I can’t wait to share with you all.
As I disappeared for a while I decided to start my comeback with a wrap-up for the months of both December and January. I hope that it’s okay with you all. I missed you and am so happy to be back!
Without further ado, let’s jump into my December and January wrap-up!

A few weeks ago I told you I was taking a short break to focus on my exams and to relax a bit. This break ended up lasting quite a few more weeks. I would have blogged but as I don’t have a computer anymore (I am saving money to buy myself a new one) I can’t blog from home and have to wait for my lunch breaks at work, which means that I’m not always in the mood for it. Anyhow, this time I pushed myself to sit down and to write my October wrap-up as I did many things this month and need to sort it all out.
So without further ado, let’s jump right into what my October was made of! 🍂

September has been a tough month: I felt extremely low, got into a reading slump, moved out from our house to a new appartment, am currently a bit sick but have no time to rest and my suicidal thoughts came back, so I have now new meds and tons of appoitments to the hospital to get better. I’m still proud of me because I didn’t stop trying to get better no matter what and here I am today, ready to welcome my favourite month of the year: October. 🎃🍂🌧
October means my birthday, my best friend’s birthday, Halloween 👻 and the official return of the autumnal weather, but this year it also means going back to Disneyland Paris, flying to London for a very bookish reason which I can’t wait to tell you all about (it’s very important and is actually the proof that my work is now aknowledged worldwide speaking), band rehearsals, going to le Parc Astérix and the Paris Comic Con, participating in Victober, going to a pumpkin patch and to the French premiere of Bohemian Rhapsody. I also happen to have extremely important exams on my birthday, but I should be able to survive and do it all.
Before even starting to plan October, let’s recap all the things that happened to me during September.

I know that once again, I disappeared from my blog. For once, I do have an explanation for it: I finished my thesis! At the beggining of the summer I really thought that I could do it all: read, blog and write my thesis. Well, I was wrong and I had to take two weeks of vacations to work on it properly. It was hard, there were moments I thought I couldn’t do it but as it was my main goal for the month I pushed myself and did it. As I am writing this I only have to add some corrections and I’ll be able to hand it back in a week.
But since we are not here to only talk about my thesis, let’s go back to August and see what I read and loved!
