June Wrap Up

Hey everyone! So I’ve been feeling a bit off about my blog this month and I feel like I need to put more work into it and spoke about my feelings here.

Has anyone been watching Love Island because I’ve been watching it religiously and I’m absolutely fuming.

I bought a TEFL course. Which is a course which teaches you how to teach English to kids in other countries, and I’m hoping to maybe eventually from that go to teach somewhere in Asia. But apart from that I have not done much this month. Oh and I went to see Demi Lovato and cried for the majority of the show!

May Wrap Up

Hey everyone, how has your May been? Mine’s been pretty chill, I’ve mostly been working, but it’s nice to just have a good routine now after everything being so hectic. I went to see My Favourite Murder live, which was amazing. I also booked my flights and hotel for YALC. Who is going to YALC? We should meet up!

I’ve not been reading much this month as I’ve been busy/not in the mood/watching Kdramas. I always intended to watch Kdramas, but I’ve never really had the time to watch something with subtitles as it requires concentration but now I can so my reading has kind of fallen by the wayside.

April Wrap Up

Hello! How are we all?

Man what a month April has been. I started off at one job and have ended the month in another. I went from working in hospitality to working in finance. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind as I had no break in between jobs. I’m just happy to be earning money though. I can’t believe how much everything has changed in the past few months. In January I was on a course to be a teacher and here I am working full time doing finance. I can’t believe it.

It’s been a bit of a light reading month for me as I have been a bit rushed off my feet but things should be calming down and I can get back into it. Everything I’ve picked up I haven’t been in the mood for. I think I’m in a bit of a slump.

I finally got to see Love Simon and vlogged the experience, which you can watch here. I also posted a tag video. I’ve kind of run out of ideas for videos already, so if there’s anything you want to see from me leave me a comment!

February Wrap Up

So my life has been in a bit of upheaval this month, which I spoke about in my post on Monday. Because I was on placement the whole month I didn’t really get a chance to read, though looking at my list you wouldn’t think I’d had a problem, but they were all ebooks I read on my phone. BUT I did go to 2 Scotland international rugby games against France and England, which Scotland won both of. The latter of which was the most recent and most exciting and stressful.

I’ve started my hunt for jobs but it’s only the first day so we’ll see how it goes. I mostly just want to chill out and read and watch anime right now because everything was such a mess.

I hope you’re all good, I should have more time or blogging now so hopefully I’ll be able to keep up and look for new blogs to follow.

This month I read:

Tokyo Ghoul Vol. 8 by Sui Ishida

January Wrap Up

So I’ve had a pretty chilled out month. I went to see Hamilton in London, which was absolutely incredible. Since then I’ve been at uni for the whole month and I’m only in for a couple of days a week so I don’t really do much and have had a lot of time for playing my switch and reading.

It was also my 24th birthday this month, gross. I start placement again on Monday so I will probably be scarce again but I’m hoping to be able to handle doing reviews on top of it.

I’ve just become obsessed with the podcast called My Favorite Murder. It’s all about murders of all kinds told by 2 women, it’s so good.

I don’t have much to update since my November wrap up was only 2 weeks ago but I had a nice Christmas. Obviously with the death of my gran recently it wasn’t the best Christmas ever, my poor mum got sad every now and then. My other gran also isn’t feeling very well at the moment so it’s all a bit rubbish. I also had a migraine on Christmas day so that was fun. I hope you all had a good festive period if you celebrate and I hope the next year is good for you!

I’m Back! November Wrap Up

Hey, its been a while huh? How the heck are you all?

So basically since I went on hiatus my gran died, I failed placement and I burnt my hand pretty badly. That’s everything in a statement. Obviously there’s more to it than that but it’s a very long story.

I didn’t do much in the month of November bar going to school. I saw Harry Styles and Little Mix at the beginning of the month, but that feels like last year at this point so much has happened. It literally doesn’t feel like I went to Asia this year because so much has happened.

I’m hoping to get back to blogging now that placement is over because I’ve missed it a lot.

October Wrap Up

So I had my first 2 weeks of placement this month which was just absolutely exhausting. I don’t know how I got up and went to school every day as a teenager. Apart from that I think I’ve had a pretty slow month. I’ve mainly been working on my essay that was due on Monday which I got done last week. I forgot what it was like writing an essay bearing in mind I did a maths degree so no essays involved.

I’ve had pretty crippling back pain for most of the month and I’m on some strong painkillers but I’m trying to do some exercises to loosen it but so far not much change. I have noticed however, just how unfit I am, so I’m trying to get back into the swing of regular exercise.

This month I read:

September Wrap Up | Announcement

Hey guys, how has your September been? Mine has been pretty stressful and annoying due to uni but hey ho. Based on that I’m going to announce that I’m not going to do Wednesday posts unless I get tagged or I have something I desperately need to talk about. I feel pretty stressed trying to keep up with reviews with everything going on so I’d rather focus on them as that’s kind of the point of my blog. One day I’ll finally post the rest of my holiday posts.

I went to a signing for Lindsey Kelk at the beginning of the month and she was so nice! Then I went to see Mayday Parade play their first album in full which is one of my favourite albums ever. And then I went to my second ever NFL game where I saw the Ravens play the Jaguars and it was a disaster on the Ravens front but I still got to finally see my team play after like 6 years.

I start placement on Monday, which means I go to a school and start to do the whole teaching thing in a practical sense. I won’t be teaching classes until November but I’m still pretty nervous about it.
