I’m ALIVE! Update: What Have I Been Up To?

head shake

Hey guys! Just in case anyone’s wondering, I’m still alive and kickin’. I haven’t posted anything in a month now and I do feel sad that I haven’t, but life happens.

My reading has taken the worst turn since the last week of August and this whole month of September so far. I had so much cool plans and goals when the month started but unfortunately my family has suffered major stressful situations.

On September 2nd, my maternal grandma was rushed to the hospital because she had a heart attack. They were just getting ready to go to church when she pretty much collapsed. She’s not too old, 78 actually, but she already suffered a stroke a few years back and hasn’t been as healthy since.

She was admitted, we watched over her until unfortunately, she passed away on the 9th, 7 days after confinement. It was devastating. A week after that, we had the viewing and the burial and my goodness, the grief was suffocating. I wasn’t even as grief-stricken as my mom and her siblings but the collective feeling was intense.

All should have been well and good right? Nope. The day after the burial, on the 16th of September, one of my uncles also passed away. That uncle is my mom’s brother. So not only have they lost a mother, they also lost a brother.

I’ve been trying to not feel too bogged down but it’s kind of challenging. I’m not feeling too sad or depressed but I’m having trouble sleeping or eating and so my reading has been on the back burner.

Hopefully after the rest of this week I’ll be back in the mood and actually be able to read some and post some more discussions and reviews because I love talking to you guys and sharing what I’ve read.

Anyways, enough of the sad story, how have you guys been? Has September been a good month so far? Comment down below, let’s chat!


Lots of love,

      Thank you! And yes, it is hard 😦 I didn’t even realize it was draining me too until I started getting sick and losing weight cause of poor sleep quality and decreased appetite. My family’s better though! At least, we seem to be bouncing back πŸ™‚
