I feel incredibly seen. So much so I'm crying:

"How to Deal with Clutter When You Have ADHD"

youtube.com/watch?v=0mCr5tqtiM

So, I laid down to read 1 chapter in Queenie, and I read two, ready to read a 3rd.

It's a good book. Would highly recommend!

I got some of the books. They are so gorgeous. Look at these colors.

And the texture of them. See there is a reason for buying physical books. 😍

How to read more?! 

I got a few messages about "I want to read more" and "I'm terrible about reading at the moment".

And I was the same, until like last week. And probably will be again. What got me going this time was these two YouTube videos (I also recommend the creators):

"How to Read More", by the Artisan Geek
youtube.com/watch?v=nKhMhXa82r

And "How to Read More | An Honest Answer [CC]", by Bookish Realm
youtube.com/watch?v=wIB-5POc6i

Bookish Realm also did this Audiobooking 101:

While I didn't agree with all the ways she does it, because I know my mind can't listen to higher speed, and I actually do listen to classics on free audiobook, she still does a great job explaining where you can find time and space to read.

I hope it helps. <3

Unofficial Florence update 

Since it's in my head, I need to let you all know: I've been trying to write a update for 1.5 months.

I'm just not able to finish it.

Yes, this tells you a lot of the state of the project. πŸ˜…

I'm still dealing with a lot of paralyzing anxiety. And am unable to do most things I'd like to do.
