The Angel Messenger: Did You Miss Me?

The Angel Messenger

The Angel Messenger is a weekly recap feature on the blog where I tell you what happened in the past week in my life, blog and around the blogosphere.

Life


Hey guys! Did you miss my weekly recaps? I was busy with college for these past three weeks (I still am actually) that I did not force myself to write a weekly recap. I’m back again this week and hopefully in the coming weeks too!

Here’s a quick update of what I’ve been to:

  • We (our thesis group) had our defense for chapters 1-3 of our thesis and we…failed. So now we have to redo everything, including changing our thesis title which sucks because we thought our previous title was really good and personally, I was very curious about it. We have to redo everything and pass our new chapter 1-3 in two weeks’ time. Wish us luck.
  • Last Saturday, I had my first demo teaching in Testing and Teaching Literature and I passed! I wasn’t expecting it because I wasn’t prepared and I wasn’t feeling well on that day but I DID IT! I received very encouraging comments when I shared my struggles with college and those comments helped me boost my confidence with my demo teaching. Thank you so much guys!

Blogging


I have more news about some blogging things that I can’t wait to share with you guys! They have been on my mind for a few weeks and I just want to spill them right now but I have to control myself because the details still aren’t clear yet. You may have to wait until middle or the last week of October for this 😉

Bookish Life


I need to stop myself from buying a lot of books but I just can’t because SALES. Also, I received my very first physical ARC!! Isn’t it pretty?! Thank you Penguin Random House!

Pieces of Why

The books I got from my fave bookstore ever that is Booksale. It’s a secondhand bookshop!

Scotland from the Air

Finally these are the books I got from MIBF!! Lol just kidding. I didn’t go there because I was broke and I actually have no time to go to MOA. I got these babies at one of the warehouse sales of NBS branches. I’m getting slowly unsatisfied with their warehouse sales now, to be honest. But I still got them at cheap prices so it’s all good.

So sorry for the horrible quality. I don’t know how they became like that. They look good on my phone.

On the Blog


(9/2) I had my first author interview! I interviewed Amita Trasi, the lovely woman who wrote The Color of Our Sky a.k.a. one of my top favorite books ever.

(9/8) I had author Lauren James on the blog and she gave tips on how to write a YA Romance novel.

(9/9) I opened up about my college struggle.

(9/15) I reviewed Pieces of Why by K. L. Going, which is a stunning middle grade book!

Plus, I made an author’s day!!


 

How was your week? Did you miss my personal updates? Are you excited for my upcoming announcements?

  1. Aw, too bad that you guys failed. But don’t worry you can definitely do it (and I bet super better the next time). Maybe you should ask for suggestions and tips from your other professors. That is what we did with our thesis before; we consulted some our professor especially creating our research questionnaire. ;D Anyways, awesome books you got there! <3 Have a nice week ahead! xD

  2. I am sorry about your thesis 🙁 But I am sure that you guys will take the critiques and turn it into something even better! And I am so glad that the teaching went well! Congrats on the ARC- that is SO exciting! And even better that you were able to make an author’s day- that is the BEST feeling (kind of makes up for the days when you cringe to even post a bad review!) Oh, and I am still obsessed with that Baby-Sitters Club edition! 😉 Hope you have a fabulous week!
