September was a really stressful month for me.
Mainly because work was so incredibly stressful for me, it was really busy and it meant that I didn’t want to blog when I got home from work. I didn’t really get to write or post much content this month! Which I was sad about.
I’m trying really hard to up my game for the rest of the year though. Here’s hoping I can fit everything in, in a day! It would really help if my 9-5 job was blogging ha.
This is my wrap up post for September.

What I’ve been up to
Well to say the least I haven’t been up to much besides work, gym and sleeping.
I went to Oktoberfest in Munich the last weekend of September. And omg it was so much fun!
Oktoberfest is a beer festival held every year mid September to the beginning of October. The grounds of Oktoberfest are a theme park with many wooden beer halls. So you pretty much go on a few rides and then spend the rest of your day drinking massive steins of beers. I don’t even like beer, but I was able to stomach it for the weekend since I was there for the experience.
From the blogosphere
I lurked around the blogosphere quite a lot this month but I didn’t really comment on many posts! I’m not sure why but I just didn’t feel like it. I think it was because I was too stressed so I just wanted to read what people were posting and then move on.
Although I do feel like my taste in content has changed over the past while. I’m less inclined to read book reviews now, even if I’ve read the book, is that weird to admit since I post reviews myself? I’m more into reading discussion posts, or how to posts, or tips posts.
I’m so over all of the bookish memes! I keep trying to participate in them like Top Ten Tuesday but I just have no interest in the content. Then when Tuesday comes I find myself getting annoyed to see so many top ten posts covering very similar things cluttering my bloglovin feed… Does anyone else ever feel this way?
