My Bookish Life, pt. 1, vol. 4: New Year’s Resolutions & 2019 Updates

Wow, can you believe it’s already 2019? And this is the FOURTH volume of my small updates. I can’t believe the time has flown by so fast. It feels just like yesterday that I had started this blog with my fellow book lover Maiya. I was but a wee sophomore in high school. Flashforward, and I am not writing from my fourth semester in college.

I want to apologize for the lack of posting. I always say that I will be more active every year, and it honestly just slips by the wayside as I get busier. It’s harder when I have so much on my plate and I’m out of a regular habit of writing. I’m going to try in earnest this year to write more on here. I want to document more moments of my life in writing, and this is going to be my way in!

2018 Review

I read 79 books last year! My goal was to read 100, but once I started the fall semester I really hit the ground running. It didn’t bode well for my reading. That being said, I did get quite a lot in there! I’m doing a mini series of books I loved featuring author interviews, and you can see the first post here.

I also started my second fall semester of college! I was really excited to go back — I missed my best friends so much! It was a hard semester for me. I joined three groups on campus, and am finally facing a lot of personal questions I didn’t know I had. I feel that I’m getting know myself better through this entire process though. Shout out to my two best friends, Abby and Haley, (and my family!) for letting me ugly cry so much in front of them!

Here are some of my absolute favorite memories of the fall:

2019 Resolutions

I’m not much one for sticking to resolutions. I’m quite terrible at it to be honest, but this year I want to set just a few to see it they’ll stick better.

  1. Blog three times a week
  2. Read 80 books
  3. Complete a third year of bullet journaling
  4. Complete a spring and fall semester with at least a 3.5 GPA

They may be small, but I’m ready to focus all my energy into them.

What are some of your resolutions? Tell me in the comments below!

Current Obsessions

Currently Listening: I’m still so in love with K-Pop, and I’ve expanded who I listen to! I also recently started listening to C-Pop, mostly Mandopop. There are so many great artists out there, and I’m so impressed by their talent.

Here’s a playlist of my current K-Pop faves that no one asked for:

Do you listen to K- or C-Pop? What groups do you follow? Any suggestions?

Currently reading: I’m reading so many books right now it’s not even funny.

Currently Watching:

  • The Memories of Alhambra, it’s a kdrama currently being updated on Netflix, and I’m obsessed! I can’t wait to see what happens
  • Fresh Off the Boat, I loved Constance Wu so much in Crazy Rich Asians that I decided to watch her tv show!

I hope you liked this update! I don’t know how often I will do a life update, but maybe if I stick to blogging it’ll be once a week. I can’t wait to see what 2019 holds for us, and thank you for sticking it out with me over the years.

Happy reading,

Sophie 🙂
