I started off the course thinking I would flunk but I finished with a 90% so I am very happy. However, because I had to work double time to fix the mistakes I made at the beginning, it meant that I had close to no reading time. I've read maybe five books this month? However, those book were like Illuminae, Crown of Midnight, Emmy and Oliver etc. so it's definitely a quality vs. quantity month for me.

The highlight of my month was the discussion post I wrote about culture in YA. It was actually in the middle of my hiatus but I broke it because I realized that the post needed to be written and there was only a small window of time before the post became irrelevant. It sparked interesting discussion on both ends and I feel like the comments were more intellectual than the actual post. If you haven't read it, I really suggest it - it's eye opening. But the thing I'm most proud is because I tried my hardest to create an environment where anyone can post their respectful opinion without hate or backlash. I think I succeeded.
Nova's fun thing of the month: I went shopping with friends in the middle of the month! I had such fun with my three friends and we hit like every store. I only bought a few things *cough* candy and a cardigan but it was awesome. The highlight was me stating my blunt opinion on stuff in every story. For example: One friend wanted to get this god-awful Pink sweater for $65 and she asked me if it was worth it. I told her no and as we walked out, the look I got from the worker could've killed.
