November was a bit of a weird month for me. It was a very busy month, with a lot of different emotions.
First of all, my grandma got ill. One day she was fine, and the next day she was in so much pain she couldn’t walk. It was scary, seeing her that way. She has spend 2 weeks in the hospital before getting surgery, and because I wanted to visit her I had to conquer my fear of hospitals (I succeeded 😁). She had surgery at the beginning of the week, and she’s doing a lot better now, thank God!
I also started seeing a new therapist. I had a good relationship with my previous one, but I needed to go to a new one to really get the help I need. It was very scary, because getting a new therapist is a scary thing. Having a good one that you can connect with is just so vitally important. I’ve seen her twice now, and she’s very nice, so that’s great!
I’ve also talked about the fact that I’m kind of homeschooling myself right now, and that I was doing 3 subjects. This month, I added a 4th one 🙌 I decided to add chemistry, and it’s been very though. I’ve forgotten everything I’ve learned previously, and it’s very very frustrating.
And of course, there were the US elections. I don’t really want to say much about them, but let’s just say that I was, and still am, devastated.
So overall, November wasn’t really the best month for me, so I hope December is going to be a lot better!
Reading-wise, my November was okay. I didn’t read as much as I wish I had, but I’ve been so busy with other things that I kind of forgot about it. Overall, I’ve still managed to read 6 books.
