Bookworm NOT in Paris: Life as a Couch Potato

Hi all my Bookworms!

My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.

How are you all?

I honestly feel as if I have done nothing this week. I have done something but it feels like nothing.

I have watch a lot Grey’s Anatomy, I have been reading and listening to audiobooks, and I have planned out most of July.

I have a bullet journal where I plan out what posts I am going to do on each day. What books will be reviewed when. What things I have on my to do list, what book tags I have when, what deadlines I have and what ARC deadlines I have.

I try to keep myself organised.

I am, I admit, terrible at it.

But I try.

I haven’t read as many books this month as I did last months so don’t expect as many reviews. I don’t think I’ll even have enough to do two reviews even on one week, but we’ll see what happens.

But the reason I have got so little done is mostly because of my period.

I know some of you out there may be a little squeamish about such things. But periods are normal and natural and I’m going to talk about this one that has been slowly killing me this past week. I’ve been in so much pain. It’s ridiculous. I’m even in pain sitting here writing this, but I’m trying to preserve. I will write this. And afterward I’ll curl up on the sofa and cry a little more.

I just want to remind everyone out there (and yes, men, this applies to you too, your sister and your daughters and pretty much any menstruating person go through this) that periods are normal, pain is not.

The pain has pretty much turned me into a coach potato. I curl up on the sofa and watch Greys and I hope I’ll sleep a little, but mostly I just wait till I can take some more pain killers.

Grey’s Anatomy may not be the best thing to watch when I’m in pain. I may give myself nightmares, but I haven’t so far!

And that’s me done’ I wish I had more to tell you … honest.

Until next time, happy reading!

  1. The only thing that helps me during my period is to double up on Ibruprofen and Paracetamol and then just not live my bed. Usually it wipes me out on day 2 and I end up spending most of the day asleep, its awful. I hope yours finishes very, very soon!
