June Monthly Wrap-up 🌻 // reviewing goals // books I read // posts I liked //

Hey people, elves, demigods, wizards, witches and all! Hope you’re doin’ welllll. 🌻
Today, I’m doing my June wrap-up! These posts take a looooot of time, so.. *braces self*
Grab some coffee, cake, and let’s go!

  • Read 11+ Books βœ”
    I actually read around 12 books, which is pretty good!
  • Practice Drawing Comics βœ–
    While I kept remembering this goal throughout the month, I only drew one or two comics. Mostly because I didn’t really feel like drawing them that much. I will try doing more, though, so this goal will carry on for July.
  • Finish Blog Magazine on Time ❔
    This one is a question mark, because I don’t actually know that myself yet. πŸ˜‚ I have until the third or fourth of July to work on it, and while it’s pretty much done (sort of), I don’t know if it’s going to be completely done on time or not (pretty sure it will).
  • Make My Own Sketchbook βœ”
    I did this, and I’m REALLY HAPPY with the end result!! I was going to make a post on it, but surprise, surprise, silly old rat Rayna forgot to take pictures after a certain point. Soooo you’ll have to be satisfied with seeing the end result:
  • Increase Number of Songs in Playlist to 150 βœ”
    *cough* it sort of, erm, decreased instead. It’s now at around 106 songs, when it was 108 earlier. So um. Oh well?
  • Finish Fifteen More Paintings For the Fundraiserβœ”
    Yeah.. I did barely any. HOWever, since I’ve done pretty much enough, I’m still counting this as a win.
  • Redesign Blogβœ”
    I did this, and I think my blog is looking a lot better! (Though I still need to find a better name.)

Overall, I achieved 5.5 (the half point comes from the question mark) out of 7 goals! Not bad!

I’m not doing mini reviews this time (though I’ll be putting in my star review), just because I don’t really feel like, but if you want to know my thoughts on one of these books specifically, feel free to ask away!

and that’s my wrap-up! I don’t sound all that enthusiastic throughout the post (sorry bout’ that), but.. oh well. Have a great weekend day!! I’ll see you tomorrow (I’m still following a ‘Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and bonus posts sometimes’ schedule, but certain times call for desperate measures. πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚) with a super fun collab post (I wonder who it’s with? πŸ€”)
