The fact that I actually picked up any books at all in the past 30 days is quite an accomplishment. So basically, I have three whole books to show you all from September 2019, but I’m very proud of that. There are only three months left in 2019 and I have 18 books to finish if I want to meet my Goodreads Reading Challenge!

Blog Wrap-Up of September 2019
I only posted twice this month, but I was also pretty busy off the internet. I held a giveaway with Wunderkind PR in the middle of the month (which has ended) and posted a piece about National Voter Registration Day. Both can be found below.

Personal Wrap-Up of September 2019
Quite a lot happened since I’ve done a wrap-up, most of it having to do with school. I started a new semester in the last few days of August, but it didn’t last very long. I withdrew from my classes four weeks into the semester. After a long, long, long time trying to convince myself that it was better to stay at a college that’s not right for me than not to be in school, I finally dropped out. And I’m so glad I did.
I might have a longer post about it eventually, but right now this part of my story isn’t really over. I think the school still has me listed in some way that makes it look like I’ll eventually return to the school (I’d rather never get a degree than go back to that university) instead of showing me as unenrolled? Or completely withdrawn or dropped out or whatever? I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be listed as. But considering I simply emailed someone and was taken out of my classes with no paperwork, I’m suspicious about my status.
Also, they made me pay for the full semester even though their website says students who withdraw in the 4th week get a 50% refund. They only took off about $900 of my original $4,000 bill for the semester. I know I’m bad at math, but that’s quite obviously not half. And then people laughed at me on the phone and misgendered me in emails when I tried to get it straightened out so… It’s still not straightened out.
At least I never have to go back there for classes and give them more money for accreditation that has such a bad reputation that I’ll get rejected by grad schools!
Happy October, everyone!
AAAHHHH YOU READ FRIENDS WITH BOYS AND SPINNING TWO OF MY FAVORITES!
I’m so so sorry you’re having so many problems with your former university – but I am glad that you did what was best for you and dropped out. Hopefully you’ll be able to get the full refund you deserve and if they keep misgendering you I say you tell them where to shove it because you don’t owe them anything anymore.
