First Quarter Wrap Up – 2020

Hi all! I can’t believe we are a quarter of the way through 2020 already! Its been crazy, but I think Louis sums it up pretty well:

I wrote earlier this year about cutting back, and as part of that I decided to do a quarterly update instead of a monthly update.

Books Read:

Annotation 2020-04-09 130931

Ten books isn’t great for three months, but I am okay with it. Like I mentioned before I am cutting back on reading and blogging, and I am enjoying both more now, so its worth it!

Also here is my books read tracker for 2020 and I am super proud of it:

Currently Reading:

I’ve actually already finished Elizabeth: Obstinate, Headstrong Girl but I finished it yesterday so it will go in the next quarter’s wrap up!

Non-Review Posts:

I can’t believe I have only written 6 non-review posts in the last three months! And half of those were OwlCrate Unboxing posts! Oh well, it is what it is.

Life:

  • My dogs Belle and Temperance got into a fight on December 31st, and Temperance needed a staple in her ear.
  • My sister and I hosted a roaring 20s themed New Years party and it was a blast!
  • I sprained my ankle on January 4th and it is still bugging me.
  • My dad and I drove Belle out to Oregon to live with my Uncle (She is doing great there!)
  • I started dating a guy named Aaron!!
  • I went Axe Throwing!
  • I cut 10 inches off my hair
  • I went on a triple date with my sister, my brother, and their dates.
  • My brother and I bought a giant Lego set off of Facebook. Its over 50 different sets mixed together.
  • My work decided to have us all work from home a couple days before the country started shutting down for quarantine.
  • All my sports (I was playing 5 nights a week) got cancelled due to the Corona virus

Overall these months have has some major ups and major downs but overall its been a really good year so far! The whole world being on lockdown has been super weird, but I have been able to stay in close contact with my family, and we are all safe and healthy.  I’m also super lucky because I can work from home and am considered an essential employee.

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy, and having a good 2020 so far!

  1. It sounds like you have had a lot of positives this year. Good luck with Aaron. I am glad you are keeping healthy and are lucky to be able to work from home. I hope this ends soon and we can all give our loved ones a huge hug. Take care of yourself Brittany.

    1. Thanks 😀 haha I tried like 4 different step-by-step instructions till I found one I liked (doing test drawings on scrap paper) then when I found one I liked I did it really lightly in pencil first before going over it with a pen 🤣🤣 So I wouldn’t say I can draw a book wither haha. But most of my trackers are lists so those are always a solid choice!

  2. Awww I love your tracker, it is so cute!!! I am glad that cutting back a bit has brought back some love for reading and blogging, I think breaks are so important and honestly? I don’t think a super intense posting schedule necessarily is critical these days. I hope the next 3 months don’t feel like 84 years and that you get some good reads in!

  3. Oh so you’re dating he? I am happy for you as the world is crazy right now! Axe Throwing seems great! I would love it! And I feel you with all the sport practices being cancelled! I miss my aquaboxing classes even if I go for long walks and do online yoga.

    1. Haha I’m trying! Thanks 😀 Axe Throwing was a lot of fun! Its become super popular here (or at least it was before all this craziness!) I’ve been trying to walk 2-5 miles everyday to offset all the sports I was playing but its just not the same 😦 I should try yoga! Maybe that would help 😀

  4. Wow, I love that you went axe throwing, played with Legos, and are enjoying a new relationship! Also, brave move with the hair — looks terrific. You’re so far ahead of me with the Witcher books!! I have the next three lined up… but just haven’t started yet. Here’s hoping there are more adventures ahead in the next few months!

  5. Sounds like a pretty good quarter, if you allow for the craziness that is the world right now. 🙂 The Roaring Twenties party looks amazing! I’m glad you’re able to work from home, and I’m jealous of your haircut. I had been planning on getting mine chopped also… and then the virus shut down everything non-essential a couple of days before I had planned to go to the salon. Oh well. I guess I can celebrate when we get to do non-essential things again by getting my hair cut then!

    1. Haha it was pretty good! Even with the craziness I am still doing good! Thanks!!! Haha I get my hair chopped every couple of years! Are you doing a big cut or just a clean up? Either way I hope you can get it done soon! And a hair cut is a great way to celebrate haha 🙂

  7. I’m glad you’re having a pretty good year so far. I’m reading a decent amount, but I find blogging to be a struggle sometimes. I just don’t have the motivation with everything going on in the world. I’ve been working from home for 3 weeks now, and probably will for at least another 3 weeks.

    1. Thanks! Reading is the best part of blogging haha so I don’t blame you for reading more than blogging. Cutting back has been amazing! And thats awesome that you are able to work from home at least. Hopefully this won’t last another 3 weeks, but it is looking like it will 😦

  8. I love your book tracker spread too! I had started bullet journaling (just monthly and daily pages) but I stopped once the quarantine started – I just didn’t have much to keep track of! 🙂 But I am thinking of starting some collections so yours could be an inspiration.

    1. Thanks ❤ I have a monthly calendar in my journal and I created all 12 months at once, and I use that for tracking events and things. Other than those pages, my journal is mostly just lists of things like books I've read. I don't do the conventional monthly/daily pages and I don't do habit trackers haha
