This series is inspired by the Weekend Coffee Share posts, with the difference that I don’t drink coffee anymore, so I just switched to tea!
If we were having tea I would tell you that I have so much to say that I don’t even know where to start. The last few months have been tough for me, I didn’t have a properly relaxed Summer and I’m so ready for Autumn, more than ever, since we’re going to experience another heat wave next week. Ugh.
I would tell you how much I’ve been worried for my cat lately. After taking her to the vet for her annual vaccine, she experienced some episodes of glycemic imbalance making her acting (and feeling) as she was diabetic. We learned it can happen when cats stress out or get a shock. We’re currently trying to cure her avoiding insulin injection but it isn’t easy. I really hope it won’t turn out in actual diabetes. I didn’t share this with many people because I was feeling too sad to talk, to be honest, it’s also one of the things that kept me away from the blog lately.
On a positive note, I would tell you that I finally decided to be more intentional with the TV shows I watch. My plan is to tackle one season at a time, watching no more than 3 TV shows at the same time. Currently, I have to finish season 2 of Lost, season 1 of The Good Wife and finish Downton Abbey. Next on my queue I have:
- Star Trek: I never watched it, so I’m a complete newbie!
- The Musketeers: my friend Lily recommended it to me and I can’t wait to start this series! When I was a child, I used to be obsessed with the 1993 movie with Charlie Sheen and I also enjoyed the most recent one (2011) with Orlando Bloom.
- Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries: Netflix recommended it to me and it looks like such a cozy nice mystery with Agatha Christie’s vibes that I can’t pass it.
I would officially announce that I opened a bookstagram account as @alicethelibrarian! I toyed with the idea to switch full-time to bookstagram on my main account, but, after a couple of months, I realized I really missed sharing non-book related photos, so I switched back to random topics. But, at the same time, I missed my bookish days, so I decided to open a secondary account! I’m planning to use it to keep track of my readings and share my latest acquisition, nothing too demanding (just to avoid burnout!).
I would tell you how happy I am to work with Megan of Page Flutter as a regular contributor on her blog! It’s nice to see your own work truly appreciated and she’s such an inspiration to me. In case you missed it, here is the list of posts I wrote so far:
- How to Plan for Finals and Big Projects in Your Bullet Journal
- How to Preserve Your Memories and Stay Organized with a Traveler’s Notebook
- How to Use Trello and a Bullet Journal to Keep Yourself Organized
I would totally recommend you a new podcast I stumbled upon, Tea and Tattle. Miranda and Sophie chat about “culture, style, happiness boosters and more” every Tuesday. I always look forward to a new episode, because I know it won’t disappoint me.
Finally, I would admit that I’m still looking for the perfect planner for 2018. This year I changed my mind too many times and I just want to purchase a good diary and stick to it for the whole year this time. I would also ask if you’ve already thought about your own planner for 2018 and what’s your choice.
