Life Update: Earthquakes, Me Moving Out, & Other Things

Hello friends,
I haven’t written anything in a while and I miss writing so much. I’ve just checked my social media and it’s a huge mess! I fell behind my schedule and I really need to catch up on my reading as soon as possible. So many new things happened to me and I don’t know where to start. A month ago I witnessed the first earthquake this year. It woke me up early in the morning and I was super scared. When you suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, earthquakes can be quite terrifying. I was scared, but I was also glad that it is over and I thought it won’t happen again. It was all great until 30th of August when it happened again. The earthquake was quite strong, but nobody’s hurt. Again, I was glad it was over and thought that’s it – won’t happen again. I was wrong. Ten days ago we had another earthquake and two days after another one happened. I’m scared to death and I don’t know what’s going on. Now, one week later everything is okay, but I am afraid it might happen again.

Another new thing is that I’m moving out in like two months or so. I will live with my boyfriend and we just found a new apartment. Now we are buying furniture and other things that we need. Sometimes it’s very frustrating and exhausting, but I’m glad I will finally get to live with my boyfriend. I must buy new shelves for my books, it’s like the most important thing for me! I bought some new bookish stuff to decorate my new home. I have some stickers, they are autumn themed. I think they will look good on my new shelves (even though I haven’t bought them yet). Also, I got the new Harry Potter map. It’s very big and I want to hang it on my wall. If you happen to know any bookish goodies that would look good in my new home, please let me know in the comment section.

When it comes to reading, I’m not satisfied with the amount of books I read this month. I fell behind my reading schedule, but I will try to read more now. The thing is that I really needed this break because I was devastated. It’s difficult to focus on your reading when your head is full of panic and fear. I’m currently reading Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius by Isaac Smuel Miller and I like it very much. I was supposed to read this book back in August, but it arrived only a week ago. Honestly, it was worth waiting for because it’s so good. The author talks about his life and then he motivates us. It’s so inspiring and I love how he tells us that even though you start from nothing, you can go a long way and be successful. You just have to focus on the good things and learn from your mistakes. And I think it’s beautiful. I will post my review once I finish reading it, so stay tuned.

What’s on your agenda for this week?
Have a wonderful week!
