I bought Bang and Dead Little Mean Girl because I’ve enjoyed some of these authors’ other books so yay! I got this beautiful copy of THUG from a dear friend and I’m SO happy! I hope to re-read soon.

In My Life

~ I went to see Power Rangers with my best friend Stephanie, which was awesome and SO MUCH NOSTALGIA. I had a tonne of fun watching this movie and totally geeked out all over the place.

~ I also went to see Beauty and the Beast again with my work friends Erica and Joyce and it was just as amazing as it was the first time. I cried again. Whahh.

~ Woooork sucks, because I have only worked one day in the last three weeks and I am frustrated because I’m not getting any clarity from them. They say it’s a calm period, which would be fine if they didn’t keep hiring new people all the time. So. Yeah. That sucks.

~ Overall though… April was a bad month. My mental health took a serious dip again. I haven’t written anything and I’m reading a lot less than I used to. I’m starting therapy this month and last week I started taking doctor prescribed antidepressants. So it’s been a tough month. Virtual hugs are welcome and much needed.

So What’s new with you this week? Tell me all about it in the comments!

  1. Yay for The Love Interest! I really enjoyed that one. And I’m so jealous that you have Like Water! I’m sorry you’ve had a tough month, Bee. Mental health struggles are the worst. I know medication is different for everyone, but personally, I started taking antidepressants about six months ago and it’s helped me so, so much. It sucks that they take so long to kick in, but I hope they work well for you and that you start feeling a little better soon. <3

  2. *sends virtual hugs and warm cupcakes* I hope things look up for you soon, Bee. ā˜¹ļø But hey at least those are some pretty books!! I’m really excited for The Love Interest! I just got approved for The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano so I’m excited about that. šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰

    I am sending you hug šŸ™‚ I have an neuro-psychiatrist and are on a anti-anxiety med. Know and watch out for side effects, they can be scary and if you have any talk to your family or doctor or someone you trust. I hope this therapy helps you. I know life can be rough and the world can seem unwelcoming but things do get better. I consider you a friend and I am here if you need any cheering up! As for work, my brother graduated from school last summer and is still trying to find a job in his field, so it is not you. I recommend reading a book that makes you happy and takes your mind of whatever is stressing you.
