Hello! Can’t believe we’re almost at the midpoint of September and I’m still putting out videos related to my winter break trip. Going through these videos has been nice and I’m trying to hold out hope that I’ll be back exploring Europe again. Blog posts have been a little inconsistent as of late, but I’m not going anywhere! It’s been quite a hectic few months for me (as it has for the entire world) and I’m getting my footing back. In the meantime, enjoy this vlog of when I explored Krakow, Poland.
One of my goals for 2020 was to really dedicate more time to my writing journey. That means writing more, honing my craft, immersing myself into the writing community, finding critique partners and beta readers, learning more about the publishing industry and more. Overall, it’s been going quite well. However, my writing journey was heavily impacted by all the effects of COVID-19. From leaving the country to finding a new job and a place to live. The stress of it all impacted my creativity and mood overall greatly.
Of course, there are people going through a lot worse. But I did want to share something positive and hopeful regarding my writing journey. So if you are interested in my hopes and goals for my writing journey, keep reading.

Right now we are all stuck at home, but I am still editing my older travel videos. In January, I had the absolute greatest opportunity to go to Poland and visit the Nazi concentration camps. Auschwitz-Birkenau are the most well known of the camps. I visited both Auschwitz and Birkenau on a day-trip from Krákow, Poland. I am really glad I took the initiative to go and would highly recommend it. There are certain areas of the camps you can’t film and others I felt uncomfortable with filming. But here is some insight into my trip.

Read my post about my final thoughts on my winter break trip. I visited several countries and was able to spend Christmas and New Year’s in amazing places.
Ever since I first discovered Nanowrimo two years ago, I’ve enjoyed learning more and more about it. Did you know that apart from the official event in November, there are two mini-events? That’s right. Camp Nanowrimo takes place in April and July. It’s different from the November event because you can set your own goal.
This year, I set my Camp Nanowrimo July goal to 30,000 words. At the same time as I was working on my Camp project, I was editing another manuscript and doing other writing related tasks. If you’re interested in knowing how I fared for Camp Nanowrimo July 2020, keep reading.
Here is my vlog recap of Camp Nanowrimo week 1.

The year is almost over and many people on Booktube will create a tag video on their thoughts on what they’ve read so far. Thus the mid-year book freakout tag was born. In this video, I answer all of the questions based on the books I read up to this point. My reading year has been INSANE. Due to COVID-19 stress and free time, I’ve read a lot more than normal. So if you’re interested in my mid-year book freakout tag, keep reading. And if you’re interested in doing this, consider yourself tagged!
Keep reading to find out the tag questions (including the timestamps for the video). Want to do this tag? Well, I tag YOU!
