Monthly Review – March 2019

Goodness this month has been busy! I had a one week vacation from work and I didn’t realize how badly I needed it. Though I love my job, after being there a year I realized I’ve been experiencing a bit of burnout. It hasn’t been the job that has been stressful, but really my turbulent family life. I was really touched that both my fiance and my boss have noticed that I’ve been really stressed and both have counseled me through a lot. The exciting news also is that I’m moving next month! So I’ve been super busy packing this month as well, but I’m so thrilled to finally get some nice book shelves and unbox my collection finally!

    1. Hi Evelina, it’s no problem I’m always happy to share! I have been on a semi-hiatus myself with everything I’ve had going on I’ve been super worn out and haven’t had energy to read and write.
