Not So Jaunty January (Monthly Wrap-Up 2019)

I don’t really post monthly wrap-ups, not even weekly wrap-ups. But yesterday, I was going through my old journals and saw random words on the lower right corners of their pages. They were my ‘Words of the Day’ which I used to do before. I don’t know if others do this too but since English is not my native language, doing this is really helpful to me. And I decided to make it a habit again.

Then I thought, why stop there? Why not use these random words in my blog too, that way I become even more acquainted with them? ๐Ÿ™‚ So here’s the first word, I don’t usually use but… well I like the sound of Jaunty. Plus it kinda rhymes with January.

FEATURED WORD: JAUNTY

jaunยทty
Dictionary result for jaunty
/หˆjรดn(t)ฤ“/
adjective
having or expressing a lively, cheerful, and self-confident manner.

Now you already have a clue how my January was, but I’ll still go through my READING, WRITING, and BLOGGING individually.

READING:

I’ve read six (6) books and I’ve read them all in the last week of January. And I only read because I hosted a 24-Hour Readathon (Day-A-Thon). I swear, if I wasn’t the host, AND the creator, I wouldn’t have joined. Hahaha. Told you, January wasn’t jaunty.

Kindly check out my review links below under “BLOGGING” section.

WRITING:

One F**cking Poem. And I edited a few chapters of my novel, and when I say few, I mean TWO chapters.

    You read 6 books in one week, published 20 blog posts, beta read 2 books, edited 2 chapters of your own book, not to mention all the other things you mention in this post… that’s a super impressive and productive month! If I can be half as productive as that in one month then I’d be happy ๐Ÿ˜‚

      I only realized I’ve done so much when I’m doen with the post and the graphics are done. and I was too lazy to change the title. I don’t wnat to make the graphics again. But the title doesn’t fit since my January was jaunty afterall.
      And I swear, I’m not usually this productive in a month, I don’t know what happened. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
