Hi, I don’t know if anybody missed me but I missed everyone. I’m not back, I’m just kinda back… only for one day maybe. I’m fine. I’m healthy. I’m gaining a lot of weight. I’m not exercising and I’m eating way too much buttery popcorn and pasta because I’m lazy. I hope you’re doing okay too and not worrying too much? We’re in this together. Let’s just be kind, compassionate and patient. So, now that I’ve unloaded all of my problems here, let’s move forward.
I just wanted to tell y’all what I’ve been up to. In the month of March, I had an essay contest and a quiz, and they were canceled. My classes were canceled too because the number of COVID-19 cases was increasing. My exams have also been postponed and I’m not sure when I actually have them.
So, I decided to share with you guys whatever I’ve been doing. Here’s how I am surviving this lockdown:
Books. Seriously, they’re my best friends. I have been trying to read them and it’s really amazing to read books when you feel that the world is going to end (don’t worry, you don’t have to break it to me… I’ve actually read a lot about viruses and plagues that killed humans and our species are still surviving, but it’s still weird to think there’s a future lol).
And guess what, I tried to read the backlist ones that I already owned but couldn’t get around to — I threw one of them out because it was literally the worst lol. I’m not gonna post all reviews, but I will do a wrap up for March and April with my thoughts and my ratings. Did I learn anything new from the books? Hell no. I’m just reading books that comfort me and it’s okay. Oh, I did realize that I actually kinda like non-fiction.
Classes. I wish we didn’t have them because our teacher constantly keeps asking us to show our faces and I keep smiling because I’m nervous and socially anxious and have no idea how to keep it together during an online class. I’m a lost cause.
So, classes have been taking up a lot of my time. Right after waking up, I have to attend my lectures on Zoom. It’s actually better than my regular classes because I hate the commute as it sucks up all of my energy and I have no time to study on my own, and it also made me realize that I would like to get my master’s online, if possible. I will probably get better at handling my nervousness? I don’t know if it works that way.
Movies. I haven’t watched a lot of them because I don’t have my Netflix subscription anymore, so I’m basically just watching YouTube and my favorite Disney shows lol, especially the ones that used to air back when I was still a fetus… they are so cringe-worthy yet so wholesome. I can’t even. I just want to keep gushing about them and relive those years lol.
HEY, GOOD NEWS! Actually, amazing news: my favorite webcomic, Humor Me, is going to be available as a graphic novel and I am super super excited. When I read the news I was over the moon, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. I have also been wanting to reread it — I’m gonna do it right now actually. It’s just gonna be so amazing, and since it’s my favorite I’m gonna tell y’all to read it because it has one of the superior tropes — girl-disguises-as-a-guy-in-high-school — and it’s the most incredible thing that I’ve read. It’s available on Tapas and Webtoon and you should definitely read it, and if you love it, support the creator by buying the book for yourself and your friends whenever it comes out. Here’s their Instagram post that shows the beautiful copies — don’t these look super adorable? Click here to read my review of it.

Aaaand I forgot to tell you that I now have a paperback version in English AND French for the first volume of Humor Me ! I'm really happy with the quality, it's 210 pages long and has a nice and smooth dust jacket folded by hand with love 😀 For now it's only for conventions but I'll keep you posted when I'll start selling it online !
So, that’s all for now, guys! Wish me luck for my exams again and I hope to be back soon. If my exams are deferred again, I’ll probably be back before them lol. Oh, and thank you to everyone who liked my posts, followed me (I’ll follow you back soon if I haven’t already so that I can read your amazing posts), and commented on them. You guys make me super happy. 💖
