Plot twist: The cold I had since November turned into a sinus infection. I’m about halfway through my antibiotic regimen and I’m feeling so much better (in addition to feeling dumb for letting myself be sick for so long).
I’m going to try to really take this as a wake up call to take better care of myself and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this is my only “big” illness this winter.
I entered a Rep Search on instagram. I don’t know if my account is fancy enough, but I’m proud of my entry and staying optimistic. If you are on instagram and haven’t given it a like yet, I’d be so grateful if you would:

Today I have something a little different. This is my entry for @uppercasebox’s first ever rep search. ▪️ Uppercase is my favorite bookish subscription service (and one I already recommend constantly!) so as soon as I saw that they were hosting a rep search, I knew I had to enter. ▪️ I love Uppercase’s model with a monthly box including a book, swag that isn’t tied to super specific fandoms, and best of all a monthly reading experience bookmark with exclusive author content to discover while reading the book of the month. These items always feel special like getting a monthly care package from a friend (whether or not I’ve already heard about the book of the month). ▪️ I’ve been a monthly subscriber for a while because Uppercase is so versatile with prepaid options as well as monthly subscriptions (with options to add on items) and one-time purchases for full boxes or book only options. It makes it really easy to fit Uppercase into my budget and to recommend it to people who don’t want to spend a fortune each month. ▪️ As a longtime book blogger and a more recent bookstagrammer, I’d love to be a rep for Uppercase and help officially spread the word about your fantastic subscription service. #ucrepsearch18 #yalit ▪️ #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #uppercasebox
Here is my favorite post that I shared on Instagram this week:

How do you take care of yourself? ▪️ I ask that today with a picture of Carry On (and some sweet wands I borrowed from a coworker) because I think Simon and Baz are really bad at it too. This is something I struggle with. ▪️ I do a great job of taking care of my mom (she’s elderly and disabled and I’ve been managing her medical care and supporting her with varying levels of responsibility for ten years) and I wouldn’t change anything about that ever. ▪️ But when it comes to taking care of myself it always feels easier to just put things off or ignore them. Which is partly why I’m currently on antibiotics for a sinus infection. ▪️ So tell me your secrets: how do you make time to take care of yourself? ▪️ #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #carryon #rainbowrowell #rainbowrowellbooks
