Versatile Blogger Award #2

Good evening bookworms!
Remember that time I said something along the lines of…

But this year I had a plan… And sometimes I miss a day, or I don’t post what I was going to, but that’s life. I try and schedule posts when I can, but it’s not always easy. I imagine I’ll probably miss some days when we move interstate in June. But you take the good with the bad, and you do the best you can.

A-HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA. Life has been a bitch lately. But I’m going to take some time now to draft and schedule some posts, and hopefully I won’t miss 3 days in a row again!

OK! During April I was tagged by the lovely Sarah Ames-Foley for the Versatile Blogger Award! Thank you so much Sarah, you’ve chipped away a little at my shriveled black heart! ?

7 things about me (the oversharing cranky version)
  1. I have been in a fantasy reading slump (which is bad because I have review books), and have been reading A LOT of enemies to lovers romance / contemporary novels lately.
  2. We are in the middle of moving from Melbourne back to Canberra. And that’s great because we’ll be close to family again. But it sucks because moving house is hard and I love my specialist here and hospital treatment nurses. AND Canberra has way less book events than Melbourne.
  3. Speaking of specialists and nurses, I have a bowel disease and the only real treatment is to kill off my immune system, which makes me really susceptible to like… life. (I wrote a whole post 2.5 years ago about my bowel disease if you’re interested… but don’t feel you have to! It was my first ever post and it was probably terrible.)
  4. Hangry is a legit thing for me. Especially when I’m taking steroids (for medical reasons, not for muscles).
  5. I am bisexual, but because I married a guy people now say that I’m “not really bi” and I get so mad that I want to throw things. Bi-erasure is real peeps. (FYI, I didn’t marry hubs because he’s a guy, I married him because he’s my best friend.)
  6. I got my nose repierced a couple of months ago (I haven’t had a nose piercing for like 7 years because I kept ripping it out in my sleep) and I’m too scared to tell my mum… so I’m avoiding her…
  7. I’ll be 36 in June. (And yes, I am still terrified of my mum – but I love her lots!)

Why do these posts always get so awkward?! ?


Arghh! I hate doing this… ok, 15 blogs… I’m really sorry if I don’t tag you, it doesn’t mean that I don’t love and appreciate your blog!

  • Keira

    Okay so I know this is NOT the point of #5… but OMG how cute and romantic is that (not the bi-erasure ofc, the you marrying your husband because he is your best friend!). Thank you for the nomination (gosh 15 bloggers is a lot to nominate) and I hope everything goes well with moving!

  • Charvi

    Hope your moving goes smoothly! I’m sorry to hear about your bowel disease, sending all the wishes and love ❤️❤️❤️
    Hah hungry is so real for me too!

  • Sarah

    So happy to chip away at your heart! <3 One of my best friends has a bowel disease and it suuucks. She also gets hangry on steroids, they sound terrible! Also bi erasure is super dumb and as a fellow bi person I've had another queer girl assume I was straight because I had mentioned dating guys. I had to be like "no, hellooooo, I am BI" before she got it. So I can't imagine what you must go through being married to a man, and I'm sorry! I hope moving ends up going well for you, also!

  • Sofii @ A Book. A Thought.

    Thank you SO much for tagged me, honey! You’re so sweet, and I understand you hate the tagging part, sometimes I hate it too, I’m afraid someone will feel bad if I forgot to tagged it.?
    I hope you have an incredible month! ???

      Thanks Sofii!! You too!! ?
      Also, I’ve started a spreadsheet for award tags because I’m trying to stop myself from nominating people twice for the same thing. I think my crazy organisation is starting to get out of control ?

  • Isabelle @ BookwyrmBites

    *whacks life for mistreating you* it sounds like a rough time, I’m so sorry you’re dealing with all that at once! ? I totally feel you on the bi erasure, having only dated one person who happens to be male; people suck and what I particularly hate is how it contributes to self-doubt in addition to general gross stereotypes and ignorance. moving can definitely be a struggle, I hope you’ll be able to find healthcare providers you like and trust as much as your current team!
    honestly I’m terrified of piercings in general, my mom actually offered to take me when I was in middle school and everyone was getting piercings but I declined ? but I have lots of admiration for people who go for it as a form of self-expression. and happy early birthday! ?

    • Meeghan reads

      Thank you for whacking life for me!! ?
      I totally agree about it causing self-doubt as well. I secretly dated 2 girls when I was younger (obvs as have been with hubs for 10 years), and because I never really spoke about it, it just cements my status as hetero to so many people. Maybe I should have been louder and told people, but it’s my business and I never felt ashamed of it, I just didn’t want to have all my life choices questioned.
      Moving will be fine, and because I’ll still be traveling back to Melbourne for work my boss has agreed I can fit my work travel around hospital and specialist visits, so I am INCREDIBLY fortunate. (Maybe don’t whack life too hard!!)
      Also, thanks for the early birthday messages ?

      • Isabelle @ BookwyrmBites

        who you date(d) and when is definitely your business, though I can definitely relate to that need to kind of prove membership in the LGBTQ+ club ? but hey, it’s awesome that your boss is so understanding (at least on this one specific thing, lol)!

        • Meeghan reads

          Oh, this is a new boss, and I love her. Old boss would never have approved that!! New boss also loves Harry Potter and has seen Cursed Child twice.

        • Isabelle @ BookwyrmBites

          new boss definitely sounds amazing, then! I’m not saying that liking Harry Potter automatically makes someone a good person …. but imo it definitely increases the chances, and at least gives you something to talk about ?

  • Aki @ The Bibliophile District

    Thanks for the tag, sweetie! So sorry to hear about your bowel disease and the bi-erasure you are going through. ?
    Hopefully, everything goes well with your moving. Also don’t feel bad because of your fantasy slump. I will cheer you with your mood reading. All the best! ?

  • Let's Get Galactic

    Oh my gosh, THANK YOU! I love your blog so much! I also loved learning a bit more about you outside of the bookish stuff; I’m so sorry to hear of your health troubles, I know how hard it is to live with a chronic illness, and how alienating it can feel. And I hope your move goes well!

    • Meeghan reads

      Cassie, I love YOUR blog!! (Also, your hair is #goals. I’m too lazy to keep mine in rainbow, it’s so much upkeep. Blue is hard enough!!)
      I’ve had health problems for years, it’s just part of my everyday now… Also, thanks!! I’m sure the move will be fine. There’s still so much to do, and I spent most of this weekend lying on the couch… (hahahahaha, see, I’m so lazy!!) xx

Let's chat!
