April 2018 | Damon

Wow, this month has been a journey. Not only blog wise but also life wise. Honestly, I was terrified of this month ending too soon. And now it has. Soo much happened to me this past month! Let’s dive to it!

Announcement: To support my fellow bloggers, I’m doing a FOLLOW TRAIN. Leave a comment below confirming that you followed my blog and I’ll do the same! Let’s enjoy each others content! [‘Follow Button’ is on either side of the screen or just scroll down.]


How swiftly you flew by.

April was determined to take away everything positive I built last month and throw it down a mountain. April’s main goal was to raise my spirits…then crush it down to dust.

April Sucks.


I know that this isn’t what you expect to see from my blog. Especially one about books. But a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. 😳 I need help. 😳

I’ve started a gofundme campaign to go to college!

You DON’T have to donate!! So don’t be scared! (Although it would be greatly appreciated) All I ask is that you share the link on facebook, twitter..etc! One share can go a long way! The image will take you to my main campaign page.

    1. You are an absolute sweetheart!! Thank you so much for your kind words!! Honestly, I don’t think the gofundme is working, its been 2 weeks i think and nothing has happened 😦 I think I might have to take it down. MSc in RE Development, do u know of anyone in this field?


  1. Three top books for April is great. And even if some were threes well review books don’t cost so that’s a plus when saving. All the best for May, I do hope it is so much better for you.
