Looking back, I actually think I had a really good time this month? I spent the first two weeks intensively writing, sort of took a week off, then delved back into the land of academia in my attempt to finish high school (and that definitely wasn’t why this post is later than planned, but I will have you know that I am so so close; I just have one last assignment that needs to have its grade confirmed and then I am done!). This was the first year that I really used my summer in a productive manner that was also restful, and it felt so good to be able to do things I loved full time with no other commitments.
Television of the month:
I’ve been having a good time watching Your Honor; it’s growing on me, especially with Fia Baxter’s growing involvement in the plot. I know things are going to get heated in the final two episodes; the teaser counts on it. I’m so happy The Blacklist is back and that was certainly an explosive returning episode, my main thoughts are Liz?! and poor Ressler 😥 [this was written after I’d only seen 8×03, now that I’ve seen 8×04 I can affirm that my thoughts were 100% on point and also apply to 8×04] I watched a tiny bit of the first episode of The Untamed, so maybe I’m finally going to watch it in full? I know I need to.
Blog posts of the month:
Yayy, I finally did some blog hopping! A lot more to come; I’m trying to strike a balance between getting through all the posts and not seeming like a weirdo for commenting three months late haha.
- Marie recommends ten ya books with the friends to lovers trope
- Malka discusses having varied relationships with different genres
- Charvi shares some tips to get the best out of buddy reading
- Sabrina recommends fifteen books she didn’t love
- Emme talks about rating books subjectively vs. objectively
On the blog:
I warned you that there wasn’t going to be much content this month 😅, there were a few posts I wanted to be able to post this month (specifically, some reviews) but unfortunately I didn’t get around to preparing them, but rest assured content is coming to you in February because I’m devoting at least a week to the blog!
February is going well so far, but it’s going to be a lot more disjointed compared to January as summer is ending 😭 and I’m moving out, so aah growing up?! But I’m really hoping to still be able to get a lot done outside of academia, such as this blog, writing, and youtube 🙂
All I’m going to say here is that I want Lucifer S5B, and B99 S8 to come out…
I kinda talked about it above but for me move-in day is February 20, which is scary,,, but I am excited to have my own space and maybe start functioning as a full-time uni student and young professional.
Blog posts coming soon
February shelf-by-shelf! My first monthly mixtape! Reviews (Girl A, I Would Leave Me If I Could, and many more), and anything else I can come up with 🙂
How has your first month of 2021 gone? Are you excited for February?
