Watch out! It’s Bookidote’s forecast time! 😀 In this edition of our Monthly Kick in the Butt, you’ll see what we’re currently reading, what we plan on reading, our monthly quotes + our thoughts and a segment on what’s going on in life!
I will not post mine because it was a disgrace for the month of January HAHA
“Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness. I am kind to everyone, but when someone is unkind to me, weak is not what you are going to remember about me.”
— Al Capone
Lashaan: While his reputation precedes him and putting forth a quote from him isn’t to prompt veneration for the guy (although shows and movies do a great job in making us enjoy his presence), I still thought this particular quote was… on point. I mean, I strongly believe this applies to my life. So careful peepz. If you’ve managed to trigger me somehow, do not cross paths with me. 😉
Trang : This is an important reminder that if you keep doing it that’s what matters. It’s not about doing it fast or having successful results. It’s about not giving up!
January was the beginning of my winter semester. It is also the last semester with courses/seminars before I go into a one-year’ish period of redaction for my memoir (I know some of you people prefer calling it a thesis even if it’s for a Master’s degree). Got to say that every one of my courses require me to realize a written essay by the end of the semester. That’s around four different essays to do, with similar deadlines! Gosh, I can already feel the weight of all those papers on me. However, the year definitely seems fun up till now. Hopefully things continue this way! 😀
Only got one thing to tell you Mr. Winter Semester.
Oh damn Lashaan…that motivation though HAHA For my part, I started my winter semester too. But I took like 6 classes…I know. *shoot myself* 6 classes in university it’s pretty rough. I decided to go to all my classes this semester I DID IT FOR NOW WOOHOO. This is coming from a girl who used to not go to class at all Hahaha. The end of January was tougher for me. I got sick pretty bad and then received the bad new about my grandmother passing away. She was living in Vietnam so not being able to say goodbye hurts as much. I end up spending the Lunar New Year in an empty house because my parents flew to Vietnam for the funeral.
