March Wrap Up 2021

Is it me, or does it still feel like February? I swear all these months are just blurring into one these days. Nevertheless, another month has gone and it’s been a mixed bag overall. Life has been pretty busy, which is great, but it also means that I’ve had less time and energy to blog. So, there were fewer posts on the blog in March. However, I did come to the realisation that my lack of activity was not just tied to my busy work life, and that upon reflection I’m in a bit of a rut. Here’s what I got up to on the blog in March.

March Highlights

Life: So, restrictions are slowly being lifted in Wales. I’m all for taking a cautious approach, but I am excited by the prospect of venturing out more. Work has also been pretty busy this past month, but I feel like it’s been very productive. I am excited to welcome the longer days so I can get out and about when I’m not working. I’d like to say more, but in all honesty, it’s more of the same daily grind.

Music: We ended the month on a musical high as my most anticipated album finally dropped on the 31st. It’s been three and a half years since SPYAIR’s last full album, and their latest release UNITE is a brilliant piece that showcases their individual and collective styles as all 4 members contributed to the songwriting and composition of the album. I’d highly recommend listening to the full album, but some highlights include What Is Love, Get Over It, and iris.

Books: *crickets*

TV/Movies: The Falcon and Winter Soldier is undoubtedly the highlight of the month. The dynamic between Sam and Bucky has always been fascinating, and I’m so happy that these two supporting characters are finally taking the spotlight for themselves. The first couple of episodes were brilliant and, I always appreciate getting to know the men behind the hero. Sam and Bucky have their fair share of struggles to face throughout the season and, I can’t wait to see how they tackle these brewing conflicts.

Favourite Posts in March

While my presence on the blogosphere has been minimal this month, again I’m sorry, but there’s always new and exciting content being shared and these are some of my favourites from March.

April Goals

I’ve just realised that we’ve officially entered my birth month. Hopefully, if Covid rates continue to fall, I can treat myself to a day out to celebrate, but I’ve not really thought about my birthday.

My goal for April is to just write what I feel like when I feel like. There’s a lot of pressure on bloggers, mostly self-imposed, to have this continuous flow of content, but at the end of the day, we can only do so much with the time we have. It’s all about creating that balance. Blogging is not a job.

Beyond that, I just hope the sun shines and I can get back to roaming the woods.

  1. thank you for enjoying and adding my post πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
    I totally get what you means about months blurring together; we’ve been on lockdown since November and I honestly have lost all sense of time 😩 this situation can be really draining and exhausting, so it’s totally understandable to feel burn out and unmotivated to write!
    hope April is better πŸ’–

    1. Time really just feels like a blur. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a year since Covid hit. Fortunately, I can still get out and about on my walks now that the days are getting longer.
      Take care and hope you have a great month. ❀

  2. You’ve had SUCH a busy March, but I also hear you on the blogging burnout (such a good post) and I totally feel you on the whole “isn’t it still February?” thing. Where is this year going and why is it just running through our fingers??
    Congrats on 90 days of duolingo!! I’m currently at 119, but I guarantee that a couple streak freezes were involved.
    Thank you for the shoutout and I’m going to check out some of the other blogs now πŸ˜€ ❀

    1. I don’t know what happened to March or why it was so hectic, but I feel proud of all I’ve accomplished and even got the opportunity to do another author interview at work. It’s insane to think it’s been over a year since Covid effectively shook up the entire world.
      Keep that Duolingo streak alive. Honestly, I love the challenge of keeping it running, even if a certain topic gives me a headache cause nothing sinks in haha.

  3. Yea it DEFINITELY still feels like February to me. Look at your duolingo streak though, that’s impressive! I had to offload the app from my phone because the owl was hurting my fragile heart lol. YAY FOR BIRTHDAY MONTH and I hope you can do something safe that isn’t just… sitting in your house alone.

    Thanks for sharing my discussion and I hope you have a wonderful April!

    1. I’m on a Duolingo mission cause I can’t stand to see that little owl cry haha.

      I’m hoping I can go for a drive somewhere with my parents and I’m banking that since my birthday falls on a weekday, it won’t be as busy.

      Thank you.

  4. I hope you get to make the most out of your birthday month, Lois! Happy birthday in advance if it hasn’t occurred yet too! I also believe that the most important thing is to do things at your own pace and that you ENJOY what you do too! I also hope that April will allow you to venture out in the wild during your free time. Stay safe! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you so much. I’m still trying to work out what I can do to celebrate, but I think a nice family trip to the beach will suit me just fine haha. Hope you have a lovey April.
