Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
"Did Not Finish" tends to be my most dreaded term. It makes me feel like a failure. However, my refusal to DNF books means I get behind and force myself to spend weeks on books I'm just not that into. I hope to come to a happy medium somewhere between forcing myself to finish and deciding that enough is enough.
2.) Keeping Up.
Most likely due to my refusal to DNF and power through, I end up horribly behind. Last month I had to add eight books to this month's list of books to read because I failed so much last month.
It's like falling into a hole that just keeps getting bigger...
3.) Know When Enough is Enough...
I have a hard time wanting to request every awesome book that comes around. I buy so many awesome books, and then I request awesome books... and then more awesome books...
I only request books I think I will love, but once I have requested them I feel indebted. My TBR list just keeps growing and growing and growing...
It is easy to feel overwhelmed.
4.) Enough Blogger Envy.
I don't have bad Blogger envy, but it isn't hard to notice how wonderful everyone else seems to be at this. I see all of these great bloggers with awesome designs who can post daily and read five books a week... but that isn't me. I wish it was, but unfortunately I work and go to school full time. It has been confirmed that I don't have super powers, and osmosis of books does not work via pillow to brain transmission.
This is something I don't always talk about, but I need to remember that I'm just me and that is okay.
5.) Being Unsocial.
As mentioned above, I do a lot of IRL stuff, so I'm often not on Twitter and talking to the community. But here's the thing... I REALLY want to be. I want to be a part of the Twitter-verse and talk to cool blog people, but it seems like I'm from the outside looking in.
This is something that I would really love to change. I would love to have a blog distraction and conversations throughout my day. It would make me work/school life so much better!
So... if you have a Twitter, talk to me!
