{Month in Review/Monthly Preview} How Computer Problems Destroyed March and Are ALREADY Seeping into April!

Today's post isn't as elaborate as usual...I'm sorry!!

It's still really brutal to blog right now, as I mentioned briefly in a recent post. Ever since Windows popped up to say that it was updating to 10 whether I liked it or not, I've had issues. My mouse doesn't work with my system anymore. My finger touch pad will work for a second or two, than stop for up to ten seconds, than work for a second or two again. My keyboard is starting to jumble. Various windows or the Start Bar open on me for no reason.

20 minute posts take me over an hour to do. Reviews take about two hours--or more.

It's made blogging hard, so I've relied a little more on blog tours that give me everything I need because it's less time-consuming.

On top of that, my cellphone motherboard died two weeks ago, so I also haven't had a phone. I'm SUPPOSED to be getting it fixed and back in the mail TOMORROW, though, which makes me really happy! It could have been ANOTHER two weeks, but Samsung was fast and fixed my problem in only a day, rather than the expected 5-11! 

(So I also don't have the normal pictures to share...even though I took them! Um, and I have to postpone big reviews for new releases such as THE WINNER'S KISS and WHEN WE COLLIDED because I take pictures of things I want to comment on or for Content Rating if it's a little more mature, and all of that is on my phone...and hopefully still synced to my account....)

I can't afford to spend two+ hours on today's post linking to everything and tabbing back and forth while my touch pad plays freeze tag, so I'm just going to give you a really short list of what I've read and what blog tours are coming. I didn't have a good amount of posts in March, anyway, thanks to my issues. (And since I have no phone pics, I can't show off nail art and random book pics, so I lose those areas, too, boo!)

I'm sorry!!

I'm debating buying a new computer, but this one is less than two years old!!! If I did, I SHOULD finally spend the money and switch to Mac...but then I'd also have to spend a lot of money to buy Photoshop again....


I'm so overwriting last month's post...in case you wondered...and due to all of my issues, I'm going to be lazy and leave this picture here:

I bought and commented on these in February, and I'm still listening to them. Um, especially Hamilton?


I watched the season finale of Agent Carter!!! I'm two episodes into S.H.I.E.L.D. so far. And Once Upon a Time is back!!!! I haven't come up with firm thoughts on the Underworld arc yet. I love that they're including stuff from Hercules, but so far, this season feels a little "serial" to me and doesn't have a solid story yet. Every episode has ended the same way so far...

Oh, and you all will be super happy to learn that I've FINALLY started watching The 100. It's all any of you talk about anyway, so...! I'm not far, since I only watched on my day off this week, but I've already seen that episode. I'm also getting some Lost vibes so far, moreso than the Hunger Games vibes I was expecting. Hopefully I'll have more thoughts in May!

That was my March. 

How was yours???

Here's a look at everything that happened in February!

Again, sorry not to include links to reviews and blog features like I normally do, but I haven't had the time--or energy--to spend triple the amount of time just to get links! Every copy/paste/tab shift freezes the computer!
