Freedom! ...Sort of... (April Wrap-up)

Halfway through last month I abruptly vanished from the blogosphere. Now that my dissertation's gone in, I'm allowed to be a human for at least a couple of days before I start melting down over essays.

(Remember when you used to have time management skills?)

Vaguely. Those were the days, huh?

News from the Reading Front

Embarassingly I only finished one novel last month, and it was an unfinished one too.

Maria, or the Wrongs of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft 

I also got through three graphic novels, which I justified in the name of destressing.

Reading Challenge Check-in

I'm six books behind schedule on my Goodreads challenge. You cannot imagine how relieved I am that January-me decided that she couldn't handle 100 books this year. I don't even want to think about how far behind I would be otherwise...

News from the Writing Front

My dissertation's finally in, so I can write what I want again!

Don't ruin the illusion for me.

News from the Net

I take it you're all having fun dodging Infinity War spoilers too?

I've almost thrown my laptop across the room more times than I can count, but I've been successful so far. Oh, and there's a special place in hell reserved for whoever invented that 'X dies in Infinity War' meme. 

 How was your April?
