Hello, my fellow wonderlandians. I wish I had some better news to bring to you. As the title of this blog post states my 24hr read-a-thon was a huge fail! I started two hours late. My boyfriend’s niece was having her 8th birthday and I couldn’t miss that for the world. So when I got out of work I was going to start the read-a-thon but I got the news and I went over there instead. No regrets! This 8 year knew how to throw a party or at least her parents did. It was unicorn heaven. They were everywhere. Daenerys Targaryen can have her dragons. I am the self-proclaimed mother of unicorns. Also, can I just say that I am also the self-proclaimed Queen of the Sea and Mistress of the underworld. What it is 2017 and this girl is ambitious. No, but really I have had a fascination with mermaids since I saw The Little Mermaid. My obsession with the underworld comes from watching way too much Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and Charmed. I swear I didn’t have a normal childhood growing up, but when you have an Uncle who loves Buffy and mother who loves Charmed. I am not complaining by any means. I loved my childhood. Anywhozeles, back to my point unicorns everywhere. I was in heaven. Then I got into a discussion with a 6-year-old over if mermaids were in fact real. I say they were and she was adamant that they were not. Since no one has ever seen one my point stands. Real until proven not. That is my motto.
Alright alright. You want to know how my read-a-thon was a fail. I have really read nothing in the last 24 hours. I think at most I have listened to about 10 minutes of my audiobook. Now I am not adding the two novellas I read on Saturday. This was before my official read-a-thon started. So to me, it doesn’t count. I read or listened to a lot over books over the last week so maybe I am a bit burnt out. Also, in the last week, I got rid of one blog and have started over with this new one so I have been putting a lot of time and energy into this new project. Which I am loving! I really need to learn how to balance the two or well I guess three. I have gotten back to posting to on my YouTube channel too.
To conclude, listening to 10 minutes of an audiobook to me really is not cutting it since last weekend I was able to crank out listening to 4 audiobooks. Next time I will have to carve out more time and be better prepared, and make sure nothing is going on that weekend!
Alright, wonderlandians. Thank you for coming back to our wonderland. Don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. They grant wishes. I hope you all had a great weekend. Have a great and productive week.
Until next time!
