Watch out! It’s Bookidote’s forecast time! 😀 Our bad for the delay on this one (Trang has been quite busy!). In this edition of our Monthly Kick in the Butt, you’ll see what we’re currently reading, what we plan on reading, our monthly quotes + our thoughts and a segment on what’s going on in life!
Lashaan: With the end of one the most hate-filled years in recent times, I thought maybe a little reminder of the Great King’s words will lead us to a much more beautiful and peaceful 2017. Sometimes the past is just a lesson meant to be learned at our own pace. #believe #humanity
“If equal affection cannot be, let the more loving one be me.”
—W. H. Auden, “The More Loving One”
Trang : I think this quote represents everything in my life. From relationships to my perception of the world, of the environment I live in. There will be always the one who loves the other more, there will be someone who loves a passion more than the other, etc. I have such a short life to live and I have made my goal for 2017 to love even more.
A semester into my master’s degree, I feel like the tough times are yet to come. Although a quarter completed of my degree sounds AWESOME, I know hard work, dedication and perseverance will all be necessary in the months to come. The Holidays served as a great checkpoint to rest and regain energy (I might have really taken that to the letter though hihih), but hey! Laziness and a desire to have fun during the snowy and cold days of December are quite mesmerizing and unavoidable. 😀 I just know that I’ll be sure to kick myself in the ass to get things moving as of now.
I do have to say that reading-wise, I’ve been able to check out some really amazing books lately and plan on continuing the streak through January! So many amazing books just waiting to be picked up from my shelves, one after the other. I mean, with the books I’ve managed to snatch at insanely cheap prices lately too, I feel like I’m in the middle of a goldmine for AMAZING books. Gosh. Seems like I’m on course to making 2017 pretty awesome. For a bookworm. 😀
I had the worst semester in my entire life. \stressed out soo much during finals, a lot of procrastinations but .. ITS DONE. And now another semester begins T_T Very happy for that little vacation of 2 weeks, to hibernate and do NOTHING. ❤
