Music Monday is a weekly post where you can share a song, a music video or anything musical related that you’re feeling awesome about that week. Here on What A Nerd Girl Says, I will almost always share a song that I’m super into that week and the music video, if any, that goes with it!
Over the past few years, I’ve felt more and more compelled to tell my story. I don’t know that it’ll make a difference but I’m tired of staying silent. I’m not ashamed of the choice I’ve made but it’s been easier to keep quiet for a couple reasons. One, it’s honestly been no one’s business. Two, it was easier to avoid anyone’s judgment. But I’m tired of it. I’m not ashamed.
Welcome to my monthly recap, where I recap the previous month and share my reading goals for the next month! I used to just strictly share what books I’d wanted to read and what I’d read but I am trying a new thing where I share all the posts from the month as well, in case you missed anything and want to catch up! Let’s see how this goes.
April was a very slow month for me. I reread a LOT. I just couldn’t get into any books and I was so busy preparing for our move. Now that we are getting settled into the new place, I really want to get back to reading! I think I’m behind on my GoodReads challenge now…
Its been over two weeks since my last blog post and I swear, I promise, that I had a very good reason for it! And that reason is…
If there are two things that definitely don’t seem like they go together, it would be nerd and fitness. I can definitely attest to that – a year ago, I had never been an active person, I’d avoided organized sports at every turn and my idea of exercise was racing from one side of a convention center to the other. Of course, all of this changed last May when I ended up in the hospital, was diagnosed with type two diabetes (my blood sugar levels were off the charts!) and told that I needed to make some big changes. My diet took a complete 180 turn, I was suddenly on medication I had to take three times a day and I was giving a little device to check my blood sugar.
The Flashback Friday review is where I take a book I recently reread and review it with new eyes. It could be a book I’m reading for the second, third, fourth or millionth time. Some books haven’t been read in years so its fun to flashback and see if my opinion has changed!
This week’s book is a book I read a few weeks ago when they announced that Netflix was working on a Baby-Sitter’s Club series. I hadn’t read any of those books in ages and I LOVED the Super Specials. I loved that you got multiple points of view and I loved that they were always so over the top and just so fun. I decided to reread the first one, where the baby-sitters go on a cruise and Disney World adventure, because that was one of my favorites when I was younger!
