Let’s forget about February, shall we?

This month was nothing like I was expecting. I had all this plans, things I wanted to do but, most of them, didn’t happen. If you follow this blog you know that it has been a difficult month for me, in terms of health. I’ve been mostly home, waiting for my doctors to get my medication right, so I could be able to function and sleep. It has not been a particularly productive month.

Anyway, there are some good things I should be thankful for:

  • I blogged almost every day. Some days, I even published more than a post. This month, writing has become a part of my days, and I couldn’t be happier;
  • I got to 100 followers, and then to 200. In a short amount of time. That’s scary, but I should be happy, right?
  • I got nominated for 5 awards. Also something to be happy about.
  • I found a new doctor that I really like.
  • I’ve been resting and trying to get better, I’ve had many days for myself.
  • One of my best friends published a book. What an achievement!
  • There was the Oscars, which I didn’t watch, but still. I got the chance to watch amazing movies, before the ceremony. I’m also happy with the winners.
  • I got close to such nice people here on the blogging words. Some I already consider as friends. I feel less lonely because of all of you.
  • I spend a lot of time with my boyfriend and dog. We usually get home so late but, with me home, we got the chance to spend more time together. I love him so much.
  • I think I was able to take care of my mental health just a little, by taking it slow. The blog has been a huge help. You have no idea. It gives me company, and confidence (people want to read what I write, what???), and support and a purpose.
  • I’ve watched all seasons of American Horror Story


And others, that didn’t go so well:

  • I said I would read 3 books but I didn’t read shit. I’m halfway through my friend’s book, so I read half a book. This makes me sad because I used to read so much.
  • I sad I would eat healthy food, it didn’t happen. When I’m home I eat cereal, cookies, milk and coffee. That’s pretty much it. Who wants to slap me? I do. Who is the biggest train wreck ever? Moi.
  • I obviously didn’t get moving because I was mostly bed ridden. Trying to rest.
  • I didn’t read the ten short stories I wanted to because I forgot they even existed. Not senile at all.
  • Hmm… I said I would listen to more music. I did and I didn’t. I did because of La La Land. My boyfriend learned to play the songs in his guitar and accordion. I didn’t listen to anything other than that.
  • I have an awful cold. But that doesn’t even count as a bad thing, just uncomfortable.


What about March? Should I make some plans?

I would like to. They make me feel motivated and back to normal. What I will do is, try to scratch as many things off my “getting my shit together list” as possible. Those are my plans for March.

Questions for my readers:

  • What would you like me to write about in March?
  • Are you happy with the way things are going?
  • What would you like me to achieve in March?
  • How many followers are enough to do a Blog Party? I’m dying to do one, so you guys can all meet each other.

I have a dream:

This is going to sound so so weird. Before I started blogging, I followed a bunch of bloggers on Bloglovin. I wanted to be like them. Bloglovin has been my reference for many years. My point is, I dream of having a few followers on Bloglovin. Can I ask you guys to follow me there? Only if you use it and if it isn’t too much trouble.

Thank you for everything, dear readers. Thank you for this lovely blogging month.

  1. I hope you get to accomplish what you set out to do for March. I know what you mean about reading. I too, used to be able to read 3-4 books in one week, now, I’m lucky if I read even one book a month! Take care. πŸ™‚

  2. There’s nothing wrong with cereal, cookies, milk and coffee. πŸ™‚ My suggestion, for what it’s worth, anything on the list you didn’t get done, if it’s really important to you, just scratch it off the February list and move it to the March list. It’s your list πŸ™‚ If you didn’t get everything accomplished, it’s ok, it’s your list πŸ™‚

  3. You, young lady do as you please. I personally would like to learn more about depression. My wife got bluesy from time to time but never full blown depression at least to my knowledge. So many seem to suffer. from it. If you read my posts you will see that I try to turn everything into a positive. It is not always possible and I think someone suffering from depression would be offended by the concept but I really don’t know. I will say recognize it and move on but I know it is not possible for everyone. (Advice is great until you are the one that has to implement it!) In the end do what YOU feel in your heart. That is never wrong!

  4. I did not know till I read about this that you suffer from depression, Cheila. I am sorry to hear of it. My mother suffered from it for a long time so I know of it from the point of view of watching a loved one sink deeper and deeper into its clutches. But that said, I am happy to say that she has emerged from it stronger and sounds just like she used to and is as annoying as she used to be. I would never have believed that I would have said this before she sunk into depression, that I am happier to have her annoy me than be listless. I am glad that you have found blogging as a way of coping with it and finding your own way of courting happiness. Hugs.

  5. I am more than happy to have met you in this blogging community, Cheila. I am looking forward for more of your insights on your battle with depression.

    Wow, 200 followers already! Congrats!! That is such an accomplishment. I'm glad you're having such a great blogging experience. πŸ™‚
    And yay, you watched American Horror Story! I love that show. I wasn't crazy about the Roanoke season, but I'm looking forward to the next season in the fall.

  9. I don’t know…that sounds like a reasonable diet to me…considering I’ve just eaten half a Toblerone (oh dear) I don’t use Bloglovin but I’ve just started on Twitter which is quite funny as I have absolutely NO idea what I’m doing..!!
