Just like last quarter, I feel as though I barely scraped through on this one, and I feel as though reading has become a lot harder than it used to be. I’ve struggled with reading paperback-format books over the years, it’s why I have turned to manga books and graphic novels, and so far this has been successful.
The problem is that most of my graphic novels and manga books are borrowed from my local library, which has been shut down because of Plague Concerns. At this point, I’m not sure when or if my local library will be reopened, but I can’t afford to risk getting sick either.
Due to the fact that I’ve been cut off from my usual supply, I’ve been recently purchasing graphic novels online, and it adds up quickly if you’re not paying attention. Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch up on my Reading Challenges this Quarter.

To be honest, with regards to blog posts, I felt as though I did alright content-wise, however, I seriously need to improve planning out my blog posts in advance. I almost didn’t meet my blog post monthly quota for June.
Miscellaneous Life Goals:
~YouTube Channel: I have successfully shut down my old YouTube channel and I have successfully created another YouTube Channel. I haven’t posted anything onto the new YouTube channel yet, because I’m waiting to set up My Study first, and I will be using this as my recording studio and craft station.
~My Study: My Study is not yet completely finished, however, it’s so close! I have a few items that I haven’t figured out where to put but I am fairly certain I will have my Study ready by the end of July. I also got a nice pink-and-black Gaming chair from Office Works, they are super comfortable, and I highly recommend them.
~My New Job: Last Quarter, I also started a new job as a Mailroom Associate in Melbourne CBD, it pays well, and it’s a way better environment. At the moment, we’re not too busy because people are still working from home, and because construction on the new building was delayed.
I’m considered an essential service and I am fairly certain I’ll be busier by the end of this Quarter. The only problem thus far is because the Mailroom is located in the basement area of the building, I can’t get a signal on my tablet, but I can get internet access on my phone. It’s usually the other way around.
Well, that’s it for now, better get back to it.
