A little Info about Me and the Blog

I thought it was time to mention some things about this blog and me, that wouldn’t fit into a regular post. This may get longer according to my needs.

Where do you get your Pictures?

Either the pictures are mine from hiking trips or I use pictures from Pexels.com. Pexel offers royalty free photos for all, and is the perfect place for bloggers to get pictures from.

When do we get to see new Posts?

After doing this blog for a while now, it seems there started to be a pattern. On the first weekend of the month, I will upload my Wrap Up of the previous month and in the week afterward you will probably get my TBR (if I manage to set one up, TBR’s are a problematic thing for me).

On the 2nd weekend you will get my Bullet Journal Flipthrough of the previous month.

On the 3rd weekend you might get a post about either books or Bullet Journaling or some photos.

And the 4th weekend is free for me ❤ (No, joke, I am preparing the posts for the coming month XD)

I cannot guarantee anything, though. This blog is my hobby and I have not that much spare time. So, if I get too busy I might miss some posts.

What are your Reading Habits?

I might make a single post out of this at one point, but for now, I think this serves as direction. I read books in whatever way they come! I am interested in the story not the medium. My favorite ways to read are E-books and Audiobooks. Closely followed by Paperbacks. I -hate- hardcovers. They are heavy, and don’t bend, and expensive. You can all go crazy about them, I will not. I mean I get my fairyloot hardcovers, too. They are okay, but give me my kindle and I am a much happier person.

How do you manage to read so much?

I am not a fast reader. I manage to read 200 words per minute which is the average reading speed. Instead I take time for reading (it’s all time management anyway). I always read in the subway on my way to work. I do not watch series or movies, instead I read. It’s healthier anyway. How many pages do you think you can manage in 90 min? I listen to audiobooks. Every time before I go to bed or while I am cleaning or cooking. Just through these measures I manage, in average, two books per week.

When and why did you start Journaling?

I started in February 2017 and it was the perfect tool to make my life even better than before. I changed my life drastically in September 2016. After that I became an active person and started a lot of new hobbies plus work just exploded on me. I needed a tool to make it possible for me to track my health progress, plan my week and get better at art. The only thing that can help here, is a Bullet Journal. My first spreads were bad, but slowly, when I figured out how this all worked, I got better and better at it. Now my Bullet Journal is my steady companion through life.

I think that’s it for now. If you have any more general questions, just leave me a message somewhere and I will love to answer it.

    Along the way they have adventures with African wildlife and all the while Jamie is immersed deeper and deeper in African mysticism, animal, and ancestral communications. He discovers that there are malevolent spirits determined to harm him and he discovers that he has mystical magical powers, and over time he learns to harness these powers to his benefit.
    Can he discover what the “symbols” are in time to release his family from the curse and to save his father and in due course himself?
