Still no good news about health stuff. Head problem isn’t any better, and the neurologist doesn’t have a clue. None of my other problems are any better either, but that’s no surprise. And as if I didn’t already have enough problems and injuries my body can’t heal, I hurt my foot the other day.
So what have I been doing to keep myself occupied since I still can’t read or really used electronics, you ask? What a great question! I’ll tell you.
I’ve been really interested in pirates lately, so I’ve been, surprisingly, listening to some non-fiction called The Pirate History Podcast. I also listened to Season 1 of Gay Future, which was hilarious.
I’ve also listened to some movies and series on Netflix with audio description, though I didn’t have much luck. In the Tall Grass was terrible. I didn’t really care for I Am Mother or Unicorn Store either. Living with Yourself Season 1 was alright but never grabbed me. Same for Murder Mystery (the movie with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler), but for different reasons.
On YouTube, I’ve been listening to a lot of videos and channels about interesting and entertaining facts, like Today I Found Out.
Other than that, I kinda participated in Inktober. And by that I mean I did a drawing for each day’s prompt, but not in ink. Here’s the thread of all my drawings! My tweets didn’t get a lot of love, but I like how some of them came out. Here are a few of my favorites.

For today's prompt I drew my favorite dancing couple (two of my sims/characters, Matthew and Elliott) 😄 I know I made some mistakes, but it still came out cute, I think! Day 9: Swing #inktober2019 pic.twitter.com/0HpkThFMMD

Nothing really. I still don’t know what’s going to happen with the blog. Don’t be surprised if anything on my blog changes (like using a basic featured image instead of one made specifically for the post) or if I take a hiatus, but that probably wouldn’t be until January anyway. I’m still hoping to do my end-of-the-year posts in December.
Books I Received for Review:
Nothing this month.
Books I Finished:
Three Days didn’t fully click with me, but I enjoyed all these.
What I’m Loving:
This month, what I’m loving is…
This was a really funny narrative podcast! It’s a parody of YA dystopians. I plan to talk more about it in a blog post soon-ish.
In Case You Missed It:
Here are the highlights:
– I reviewed Caged by Bey Deckard, a fantastic audiobook about interesting, complex pirates getting themselves into a messed up m/m/m polyamorous relationship.
– I reviewed Salt Magic, Skin Magic by Lee Welch, another fantastic audiobook, this time about some really cool magic and a sweet m/m relationship.
– I wrote some poems about supernatural creatures!
