The year is quickly creeping to a close, and this was my October 2015.
October was a reminder month, of all the things I need to finish before I begin study in November. While I am only a part time student, I have to dedicate a lot of time to it because I have not studied in a long time and want to gain confidence by doing well. The wonderful thing is, that I was able to complete my main objective: finish my room renovation. I also gave myself a kick up the bum and finished my children’s book I have been working on for oh, the past ten years. ? Woo. I will have more details about the book, possibly next month.
It is October 31, so it would not be right if I did not wish everyone a very spooky celebration.
- Completed my bedroom
- Ticked another item off my 30 before 30 with my cloud stationery set
- Finally finished and ordered my Children’s book!
The first copy is a test, after that more details! 😀
- Ordered my designs on Christmas cards for the Christmas exchange
I read one book this month. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North and I really liked it. It was dark, complicated and often gritty. I like books that are part dystopian and go to places that make you question the realities of the world created and the people within them. I would recommend this book.
I watched ten movies in October and my favourite was Jurassic World. When watching this, I tried to think of it as a movie outside the original Jurassic Park universe. It’s not always possible to do that because it IS part of the series. I found it annoying at first that there had to be genetically modified dinosaurs, but the movie actually answered this for me, and I didn’t feel as annoyed about it. I guess it was probably a point that a lot of people had made, for it to have to justify itself. ?
I have been watching; American Horror Story Hotel, Scream Queens and Mr Robot. I thought I would really love the latest series of AHS, but there is something about it that I can’t connect with as much as past shows. I still enjoy many elements about it, and I will wait until I have watched it all for final judgement. Also started watching Scream Queens. This show is kind of hilarious in many ways. Horror, humour and crazyness. Aaaaand, I binge watched Mr Robot. I loved this show! It was geeky and it was dark. I want moooore.
I finally listeneed to the album 1989 by Taylor Swift and I liked it. I started to listen to music again and was enjoying Apple Music until I realised it was eating a huge amount of my internet usage. Bum.
Saving, creative writing and commenting on blogs.
