Month in Review(s) - March 2018

March. Ah, March.


March, for yours truly, was one of those months with too much trouble, and too little time to deal with it.

There was some good, incredible, awesome stuff - like a Fall Out Boy concert last week (completely awesome!) and hitting 200k page-views on Dora Reads (I LOVE YOU MY NERDLETS!!!) - but there was also a lot of stress, worry, Anxiety, etc.

There's a lot of personal stuff going on atm, including my grandmother being in hospital since the beginning of the month - and thanks so much for your support my dearest nerdlets! You rock, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!

The other thing about March, of course, is that it's Celtic af

There is St. David's Day, St. Piran's Day, and St. Patrick's Day, the Patron Saints for Wales, Cornwall, and Ireland, respectively.

Randomly, the only one the BBC (the UK's public broadcasting network,) seemed to pay any attention to this year was St. Patrick's Day - the only one that ISN'T representative of a part of the UK.

So, yeah, the BBC supports the Celtic Nations - but only the ones who aren't a part of the United Kingdom. Great.

(Me? Bitter? Pshaw! Pshaw I say! *sighs*)

Be sure to check out the post of Welsh-language music I did at the end of February in celebration of Dydd Gลตyl Dewi Sant!
