I have decided to start a new segment on my blog where I will recap life, updates and random things in ‘The Month That Was’.
September 2015 wasn’t a busy month, but I still managed to fill it with some slightly productive things while I wait for University to start again in November. The most annoying thing has been the weather. It has been cooler than I expected so the drying time on the floorboard gloss was taking soooooo long. Thankfully, as September is ending, the days are getting warmer, so I am hopeful October will be the month when my bedroom is finished!
- I started on phase two of my bedroom renovation
- I ordered my cloud designs on custom stationery (still waiting on the pen)
- Created the blogger directory Bloglist Me
- Dyed my hair purple
- Didn’t like the purple, so dyed my hair red
- Made a new avatar for myself
- Upgraded my iPhone 4s to a new iPhone 6s (not pink though ?)
I read three books this month, that was a lot more than I normally would. The books I read were: The Martian by Andy Weir, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. My favourite was The Martian. I was captivated by every word and really had no idea how it was going to end. I am really interested to see the movie. I enjoyed reading The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, it was only a short story but I thought it was such an interesting concept. I wish that I had read the story before seeing the movie. Dorothy Must Die is YA, and I often get drawn to some of these books because they have interesting concepts. Parts of it I liked and other times it just was….. eh. I will probably read another book in the series because I like to know how things end. ?
I watched 14 films in September and my favourite was certainly Mad Max: Fury Road. It was so intense, that I spent most of the time with my heart pumping and hoping the madness of the chase would end well. This movie also showed that a female lead can kick-arse. Tom Hardy. TOM HARDY. ? I am going to watch it again soon. Heh.
I didn’t listen to any music this month. ?
Some casual play of The Sims 4 and the Get To Work expansion pack. I was excited to try the pack because it does add some new career options. I liked that you could go to work with the Doctor and manage your own shop if you wanted too. The fact you have more control over things is exciting, but can also get tiering. However you have a choice if you want to go to work with the Sim which is good, because sometimes you want them to just do their ‘thang’.
- Saving money: I wasn’t able to save money because of the cost of renovating my bedroom. Once that is complete I plan to start saving money.
- Creative writing: I didn’t do any creative writing, hopefully next month I can.
