What’s on Your Nightstand is a monthly meme hosted by 5 Minutes for Books on the last Tuesday of every month that summarizes what you’ve read for the month, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan to read next. For my posts, I also include articles, music, art, TV shows, and whatever else I did in the month.
September was a turbulent month for most what with the many hurricanes sweeping through the Caribbean and the earthquakes rocking Mexico City. Following that came Trump’s insensitivity towards those affected by these disasters that left many, including myself, angry, annoyed, and frustrated with his leadership and lack of consideration for others.
I do hope that the people affected will receive the support needed to rebuild, but because I am a bit of a pessimist and because of the reports I’ve heard about mismanagement, corruption, and insensitivity around the world, I do wonder if needed support will be delivered. Many are willing to help now but rebuilding will take time and once newscasters start focusing on the next big story, some places affected by these disasters might be forgotten.
On a lighter note, personally September was a dull month that flew by quickly in retrospect. I spent the majority of the month looking forward to its end when my week-long vacation would begin. It was a vacation I desperately needed because as much as I like my new job, it’s very boring there and I craved a break from it. It was a week well spent. Anyway, here’s what I did in September.
