HAPPY NEW YEAR!
So last year, I made A TON of plans. And nothing happened. Deadlines passed, posting dates happened with nothing posted. CONGRATULATIONS! I SUCKED SO MUCH AT THE SECOND HALF OF 2015.
And I was so hard on myself. I hated how I was always on reading slumps, how I couldn't review to save my life, how I couldn't recap the events I went to, how I was so ineffective and inefficient and OH LOOK AT ALL THOSE OTHER BLOGS AND ALL THESE NEWBIES SO MUCH ENTHUSIASM DAMMIT
And burnout happened. And self-loathing. AND FUCK ALL THOSE, I DON'T WANNA EVER GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN.
So this year, how about we try not planning at all? Or at least, nothing that I'll announce here on the blog and then not go through. (I still have super laidback plans on what to read for the month, which I can change anytime I don't feel like reading a book at the time.) I mean, I can't disappoint myself if I don't expect anything from myself, right?
I've been in an awful place at the end of 2015 and as you may know, I've dropped a lot of commitments. Blog tours I had to participate in, blog tours I was organizing, tons of shit I dropped and escaped from. Because that's what I do, run away. And I'm sorry to everyone.
With that, I'm closing down Oops! I Read Again Tours for good. I'm also resigning from Pinoy Book Tours. I once enjoyed organizing tours but they're too much for me now. They take too much time, too much effort, too much everything. And with me being as sucky and lazy as I am nowadays, I don't want to disappoint any more people.
AND NOW I'M FREE!
I also planned not requesting more books last year but of course I couldn't resist. I did, however, not approach and dedicate so much time scouring the Internet for contacts and publicist emails and whatnot. I only accept books pitched to me and request titles I REALLY want. I still can't stop with NetGalley and Edelweiss and ha, I don't even care anymore. I LIKE BOOKS, OKAY.
Yesterday, I was wearing my NOBODY CAN DRAG ME DOWN shirt (yes, I wear my fandom) and I realized it was a great motto for the year so *self high-five*! Let this be the year where I just don't give a fuck, please please please.
P.S. Top books of 2015 post this Monday!
P.P.S. There will be some changes in the blog soon (post titles, post format, etc) and I'm kinda excited hihi
