Let’s Rewind: March 2021

Rewind Monthly Review - March

March seems to have taken it’s own little time to go by, and I appreciated that. I don’t want to rush through the year. Despite all the craziness going on, I’m hoping this year will turn out much better than 2020 so I can savor each day.

Let’s Rewind is a monthly wrap up but instead of talking about only books, I include all types of other stuff, like articles… bookish news… commercials… random-ass links… movies… art… podcasts… cartoons… and whatever else happened to me in the month. You know, the usual stuff that people talk about in monthly wrap ups. So read on to see what I did and read this month. You might stumble upon something that interests you.


For the most part, March was a good month for my personal life. Not much happened other than me celebrating my birthday, for which I did nothing except take the day off and buy some books. I also celebrated the anniversary of my grandfather’s passing and had some family bad news toward the end of the month, but things seem to be turning around quickly (fingers crossed), so hopefully everything will work out for the best.

Let’s Rewind: February 2021

It’s weird how reality works. January felt like it was plodding along and then February felt like it went too fast, as if it ended as soon as it began. I don’t even remember what I did. What happened in that month?

Seriously, I can’t remember what happened in February. It went by so fast and ended like poof! The only thing that stood out was my cousin’s birthday and… that’s it. It was a laid-back month for me; everything was pretty routine, so nothing interesting happened.

Let’s Rewind: January 2021

Can you believe it? We’re already a month into 2021 and already the year is shaping up to be one for MAJOR changes.

Typically, by the end of the month, one would say that it has flown by. And that’s usually the case for me too. Time always seems to be speeding off somewhere. But that wasn’t the case with January 2021 for me. It plodded along at a snail’s pace.

Let’s Rewind: December 2020

Despite how much of an ass 2020, it still seems as if it flew by.

December.

It wasn’t too bad. Sure the Christmas spirit wasn’t flowing strongly through me, filling me with Christmas cheer and making me run around racking up a huge bill while buying everyone presents, but I still enjoyed the holiday and the time off to just relax.

Let’s Rewind: November 2020

Ahh… November. My time of R&R.

Not much happened in November. I took some time away from blogging because I wasn’t in the mood for it then and spent the time reading mostly romance novels, which I haven’t done in a while. I was just in a romance mood, which I’d felt coming on because this is the time of year that I usually spend watching cheesy romance flicks and those Hallmark movies. I’m still in that happy-go-lucky romance mood, so I’m still bingeing on such books and movies.

Let’s Rewind: October 2020

This is my October wrap up. It’s late because I haven’t been in the mood to blog lately.

Maaan… I don’t even remember what went down in October. All that’s on my mind right now is that Trump is out of a job and is acting like an ass about it. I wish he could be kicked out ASAP instead of having to wait until January next year. This dude is so odd and incompetent as a president.

Let’s Rewind: September 2020

September has come and gone leaving autumn in its wake.

I’m happy to see the leaves change, to finally be able to rock my boots and scarves, but I’m going to miss the warm weather, although I didn’t spend much time in it this year.

Ha! September. I tried my best to spend some time enjoying myself and doing stuff I love since this year is intent on being shit, so I visited a couple friends, bought a couple stuff, went for walks, and even managed to do two of my favorite things: randomly walk around D.C. and see an art exhibit.

Let’s Rewind: August 2020

I can’t believe I spent so much of the year working from home. It’s something I’ve wanted to do, but not under these circumstances.

August… It was a bit like July. I don’t remember much of it to the point where I’m wondering if I should try again to maintain a journal, maybe a weekly journal; but I wonder what would I write in it.

Let’s Rewind: July 2020

Social distancing, staying at home to avoid contracting the virus, working from home… Life has become monotonous, and the days are beginning to run into each other. I can’t remember what happened in July. It’s all a blur.

June was a blur and so was July. But this time remaining inside was starting to get to me. I experienced a serious bout of FOMO thinking everyone was hanging out without me and I was the only dummy remaining inside to avoid corona. I wanted to go outside so bad and connect with another human in person who is not a family member I live with.

It was so weird, that feeling. I’m introverted and have never minded spending time alone. I love my own company. Plus, I’m never actually alone since I live with family. But I was surprised at this yearning to interact with others outside my family unit. I’ve never experienced that before. It was weird.

Let’s Rewind: June 2020

Things ramped up in June. The movements and protests increased. Corona infections continued to rise (in the U.S.) despite earlier claims that things might get better by now. The wind brought the U.S. a sand cloud from the Sahara, and there was news that there’s a swine flu that could reach pandemic levels (sigh).

Is it just me or are the months starting to run into each other? In my personal life, not much happened in June. I worked. I slept. I ate. I talked to folks. I stayed inside, tried to stay 6 feet away from others when outside, and reminded myself not to touch my face when out and about, which is becoming increasingly difficult. Has that been happening to you?
