#TheReadingQuest Update 2

It’s update time, and I’ve got great news!:


Audiobooks read:
Lifeblood = 10 XP & 38.7 HP.
Eve = 10 XP & 19.5 HP.

Point Tally
XP: 30 + 40 = 70 XP.
50 + 66 = 116 HP.


So far, audiobooks have been my life saver. But I’ll catch up with physical reading soon!

One more book and I’ll complete my first quest!

Trying to Re-Organise Myself #1

I need help restarting my habits. I am a slob. Help me.

This is a mission of mine. Basically; I feel blurgh. I’m home five days a week, probably only one of those days is actually doing uni work. So that leaves 4 days of me feeling like death and blurgh-ness.

I know, I know. Cal, shut up. You’re complaining that you have too much free time. Shut. Up.


I get that. But get this: I feel blurgh-y. So it’s not really free time.

So last week I tried to counteract my evergoing affects of mental illness blurgh-iness, and made this little motivator:

My aims were to:

  • Think Pink- otherwise, it a less dark cloud kind of way.
  • No Complaining- this lasted ten minutes but hey, it relates to point #1.
  • Meditate- This one was awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I used the app Breathe.
  • Read & Write- Frankly, I kept up my habit of reading (but not a whole lot, I’ve been addicted to the Office) I didn’t do any recreational reading aside from my blog updates; #TheReadingQuest Update 1New Blog Additions!, & Book Clubs.
  • Be productive- Well. I studied this week. For a day and bit. So that’s a bit more than my other weeks.


Overall, this improved my week. I especially enjoyed meditating.


I’ve spent some time scavenging Pinterest for future ideas, and enjoyed these two posters:

work from home


Also this week: I installed some New Blog Additions!


For future improvement, I’m going to schedule a few new segments on this blog and start bullet-journalling. And clearing out my room.


Wish me luck. If you have any tips, please share them. I’m a slob. And a stay at home daughter. I’ve got plenty of time to read your stuff.

#TheReadingQuest Update 1

Finished my first book, some older woman is bullying some of the participants, and I’m having fun reading…

I completed my first book!

View my Goodreads review here (it has also been added to this blog’s queue). I read The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. I enjoyed the story, and it received 3/5 stars.

The story was based of Arabian Nights.

Next I will read Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I have read this before and did not like it. Finger’s crossed I do this time!


This week is flooded with uni assessments and exams, so bear with me.



Point Count:

XP 30

HP 50

Level 1 



peaces_icons-harrumphI’ve had beef with somebody who’s being a shark on the book blogs and forums participating. This woman is going around on teenager’s accounts and discounting their reading; taking this reading challenge way too far. I scavenged the web to see if other #TheReadingQuest participants were being attacked, and indeed there were. In particular: teen girls. Not cool, Miss ‘I like to spend my time trying to argue with minors who are just trying to have some fun while reading’.


I’ve been obsessed with The Office (U.S.) lately. Half way through season 3, it just clicked. I suddenly understood the humour.


Okay back to assignments and study…

So this is it. I hope you enjoy. Next up I’m hoping to upgrade my theme to one of the Premium sets. Which do you prefer; A or B?


Thanks for spending your time reading my blog post, have a great day!
