January 2018 Wrap-Up & Favorites

Hello and welcome to my first wrap-up of the year! First of all, I want to apologize for the my lack of posts and interaction this past week… My grandma died on Sunday night and on Tuesday my company decided to shut down and fired all of us. It has been a pretty terrible week and I didn’t check out any blogs at all; but, fortunately, I got a job offer on Friday, so it seems like everything will be okay for now. And I’m back!

August 2017 Wrap-Up & Favorites

So… what a month. At first, it had been perfect. I went to New York (a work-related event) and then I traveled to Scotland with the family. I couldn’t ask for more. I even read some great books during my trips. But then I went home to Barcelona and the day after I arrived, the attack happened. So sad for everyone who was killed or injured. I hope this era of terror comes to an end as soon as possible… Anyway, here’s how I spent my reading month.
