I survived May! After a very busy, nerve-wracking month, I am so happy to be into June and I am ready to kick-off the summer. Here's what happened in May:
What I Read:
Heartstopper: Volumes 1-3 by: Alice Oseman: 5/5 stars
Bunny by: Mona Awad: 2/5 stars
Life In The City of Dirty Water by: Clayton Thomas-Muller: 4/5 stars
The Break by: Katherena Vermette: 3/5 stars
Four Aunties and a Wedding by: Jesse Q. Sutanto: 4/5 stars
Jameela Green Ruins Everything by: Zarqa Nawaz: 4/5 stars
Embers by: Richard Wagamese: 4/5 stars
Favourite book: The Heartstopper series ruled my May reading. In honour of the tv show premiere, I decided to read the graphic novels, and I am absolutely loving them. They are so cute and wholesome, and I can't wait to get to volume four.
What I Blogged:
My favourite blog post of this month was my discussion on Why I Am A Fan of Fan-Fiction. It is a revision of a post I put up in 2016, and I was so happy to share my updated thoughts on fan-fiction and reasons why the genre is so great.

This month, I attended my first academic conference in Montreal, which was scary, but I am proud of myself for how it went. I met so many lovely professors in my field, and the experience will definitely help me in the future. I rewarded myself with some fun shopping in the later parts of the month, and some much needed downtime before I begin writing my major research paper.
Which now leads me to the heart of my MA degree: my major research paper. The paper needs to be completed by the end of August, and is roughly 40 pages. I'm procrastinating... a lot. I think I've fallen a bit off of the wagon in terms of schooling, so I definitely need to hop back on and stay focused. My blogging schedule should still stay the same, but I definitely need to manage my time better.
So, that was my May! It's time to get down to business, wish me luck!
How was your May?
