We’ve all done it. It’s in your bookshelf or saved on your device.

You’ve been meaning to get to it, but you just don’t have the “I’m going to read a book now.” mindset.

Besides it’s not like you have a deadline, you can always read it.

Or perhaps you do. Your subscriptions or book loans are almost ending.

But you still lack that push. The consequences aren’t scary enough to pick up that book and start reading.

Reading is often done for leisure, and if you’re putting it off, it just means it’s not for you. Right?

Wrong.

How do you know it’s not for you if you haven't even started it? …

If I wrote about every book I wanted to read this year, this post would be very long.

But I’ll have mercy on you and my fingers. So here are the main books that I want to finish by 2022.

Most of them are series, and instead of listing every book, I’ll just mention the series.

Every book/series I mention will include a picture and an Amazon link to the book!

I’ve had this one saved on my Kindle since last week and I’ve been meaning to get to it. …

It’s a brand new year! I hope all of you are safe and excited to see how 2021 goes. I know I am!

2020 was an interesting year, with more cons than pros. But we can’t dwell on the past if we’re trying to better the future.

I’ve made New Year goals, year after year(like many of us), but I’ve always trailed off. Especially in 2020, but in all honesty, I forgot what my resolutions were(oops).

So this year one of my goals is to commit and stay dedicated to my passions. …

It’s January. It’s the goal-setting month. I published a post on my 2021 resolutions last week, you can read it here.

But I mentioned that I would write a post just focusing on my blogging goals. By the time I publish this post, 5 months have passed since I started blogging. (I published my first blog post on August 3rd)

So, without further ado here are my blogging goals!

Have 5000 reads in total on Vocal & Earn at least $10

I started writing on Vocal, on December 6th. And so far I’ve got 435 reads in total. I’m far away from 5000 reads I want to achieve, but I’ll get there.

The more reads I have, the more I’ll earn, So, thank you for reading :). …

According to bestlifeonline “…researchers point out…you’re unlikely to lose the extra weight after the conclusion of the holiday season.”

However, I’m not telling you to not indulge this holiday season. Eat your favorite treats and give your taste buds what they’re yearning for. Because people tend to exaggerate the amount of weight put on during the holiday season.

A study done in Texas shows that the average weight a person gains during these last 1–2 months is 1.5 pounds. Much less than the 7–8 pounds, said to be gained.

So if it’s only a pound or two, why is there such a big ruckus about it? …

Ah, welcome back. It’s a Friday night for me, and I’m writing my 4th Blogmas post. I’ve been lagging with my posts, mostly because of school. But I’m trying my best to update daily for Blogmas. I’ve also been more active on Twitter, and Pinterest.

Blogging threads are honestly a gift.

As of the moment, I’m making Dulce de Leche Cortada, to try something new. Hopefully, I can make it right.

Anyway back on track, my winter morning routine. It’s certainly different than my summer morning routine. The sun wakes up late and sleeps early. …

It’s here folks. The festive season, and for many, it’s snowing outside. Alas, I need to travel up north to see any snow.

And traveling isn’t really on my calendar this month. But these are; My Plans/Goals For December.

So grab that mug of hot chocolate and read away.

“I find that it’s the simple things that remind you of family around the holidays.”

We’re almost there folks.

2021 is right around the corner, and December is bound to be a busy month. With finals, blogmas, holidays, and wrapping up this unexplainable year, this month will be entertaining at least.

So let’s dive into my calendar for this wintery month. : )

Finals

It’s that time of the year again. And I don’t mean the holiday season. Say hello to the dreaded finals. But because of the circumstances, finals schedules are weird this year.

Not only is the pandemic a major stress component, but the fact that this one exam could be the final thing determining your grade. …

Bullet Journaling was something that I looked forward to, then suddenly it became a chore. I don’t know what changed, but something certainly did.

Of course, bullet journaling isn’t for everyone. It’s time-consuming and sometimes draining on your health. But there are pros.

So, what are they? Let's find out!

SIDE NOTE: This is my first time participating in Blogmas, so be on the watch for posts at least every other day. This isn’t really a Christmas themed post, but those will be coming out soon!

Pros

  • Keeps everything on track(it is a planner)
  • You feel proud of your artwork and…

Lilly Sabri

So I’ve been doing Lilly Sabri’s workouts for a little more than 2 months. And they were certainly a different path for me. I’m relatively new to working out seeing that I only began in March.

I first started with Chloe Ting, and then Emi Wong, Holly Dolke, Gabriella Whited, Pamela Reif, etc. I did Chloe’s workouts from time to time, but I started branching out. And then I stumbled on to Linda Sun, a fitness YouTuber.

I’ve mentioned her in another post of mine 7 Best Simple & Healthy Snacks to Gravitate Towards. Linda talked about Lilly Sabri, and how she encourages you. …
