Hello, friends! I feel like I’ve been more present in April, but am still struggling with the WordPress block editor, so I’ve been dragging my feet when it comes to sitting down and working on the blog. I will try to do better in May. I have several drafts that need to be rewritten with said editor and I’ve been procrastinating. Is there a WordPress block editor support group out there because I would like to join. I got my first covid vaccine shot earlier this month and am scheduled for my second next week. Crossing my fingers that I don’t have any side effects because the day after is my birthday. Speaking of my birthday, I really want to get to 900 followers on IG before then, so if you are into books by authors of color and florals, I’m your girl. You can follow me here. A little sample of the photos I take:
I didn’t read a ton this month (this is starting to become a pattern), but that’s because I picked up a new hobby. I got an early birthday present…roller skates! I have no experience, so this month has been really interesting trying to learn. I am such an overthinker and that does not always serve me well when I am trying to teach myself something where I could fall over any moment. A week ago, I went outside for only the second time and fell several times, but I got back up and that’s what’s important. If there are any fellow beginner roller skaters out there who want to start a DM group to support one another, hit me up. So I read three and a half books (I am counting this half because it’s a 500+ page book and it feels like it should count as two). Not a great number, but I am hoping to pick up the pace in May. I am still behind on my Goodreads goal and need to catch up. Wish me luck!

What I Watched/Am Watching:
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier – Well this was such a fun ride! I really enjoyed the dynamics between Sam and Bucky. There were times when I wished the show would go a little further with its storylines, but it’s Marvel, so I don’t expect it to make revolutionary statements. Still, I enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing what happens next to these characters.
Teen Wolf – Like last month, I really wanted to watch something familiar. I haven’t seen Teen Wolf in years but really enjoyed the first few seasons and so I binged away. I am actually at the end of season 3b and am already crying knowing what happens at the end.
