Hello Blogging world!

I have returned from the middle of the earth with a new blog post. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas/Holiday 🙂
I am getting back into the roll of things now so let me update you on a few things that have been going on this month!

WHAT I READ IN DECEMBER

Also there is a possibility I read all 3 of these books in a 36 hour time period… don’t think I’ve read that much… ever.

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur – ★★★★★
I’m a sucker for a good poem/ poem book and fell in love with everything in this one. Every page was absolutely beautiful. Got through it in an hour. The way the author divided it up into 4 different and important subjects made me love it more.

Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines  – ★★★★★
This novel was actually so interesting.
Not going to go much further because there is definitely going to be a book review coming!

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon-★★★★★
THAT PLOT TWIST! PEOPLE!!! THIS ACTUALLY TORE ME HEART OUT. BOOK REVIEW COMING! AHH

WHAT MOVIES/TELEVISION SHOWS I WATCHED

Greys Anatomy – Last time I talked about this I was on the 5th season at the beginning of November. I am now on season 10, the only reason I slowed down is because SCHOOL BE KILLING ME RN. Honestly if you have debated watching it please do… I beg of you. You will be hooked.

Gilmore Girls Revival – Gilmore girls over the years has become such a large part of me and my family’s lives because it is a show you just hold onto and remember. I have most likely watched all 7 seasons 5 times… not even kidding. When the revival came out I WAS PUMPED. Took me a few days to get to it because I needed the time to watch them all in one day and it was great reliving it. BUT SERIOUSLY WHAT THE FRICK THEY NEED A SEASON 2 I WILL BEG ON MY KNEES IF NEED BE.. SERIOUSLY THOSE PEOPLE CANT LEAVE US WITH THAT CLIFF HANGER… THE CHEEK OF THEM.

The Imitation Game – I got recommended this several times over the past few months and normally I’m not one for war time setting movies but this was actually incredible. I loved it.

Dear Santa – OBVIOUSLY this was included in my list. Its not christmas unless you watch this movie. ALL TIME FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE.

Annie – See this movie came out like 2 years ago and I just never got around to watching it. But I watched it today and honestly… ehhh.. I love Cameron Diaz but sorry this just was not a good role for her. Everything else though… honestly perfection. I’m a sucker for Annie.

WHAT I DID IN DECEMBER

Went to a mother daughter winter tea- Sounds absolutely prissy and strange but… actually nope can’t even deny that HAH. Thought the cucumber sandwiches were good hahaha!!

Attended my schools semi formal – Went with a small group of my friends because I had never gone to one before. Lets just say it was held on the coldest Canadian night and I was in a dress… ahh. *Insert actually the grossest picture of myself, just did this to entertain you and get you laughing at that face hahahahah*

LASTLY LOTS OF EDITING… LIKE TONS –  For my film and media class I had to film a video and edit it myself (which isn’t that different from what I normally do but I was dumb and chose to put the pressure on the editing side.)so it took up a good two weeks…. OH DANG THAT REMINDS ME! I HAVE A BLACK WALL IN MY ROOM NOW.
If you are wondering what I’m talking about you can check out my two newest videos right here!

FAV BLOGGERS/ BLOG POSTS FROM THIS MONTH.

Okay I know this is horrible.. but I have none… for either. Blogging has been on the back burner for the past month and a half.  JUST stress.. worst excuse I know. But Senior year really is pretty tough.. especially with MATH BLEH.

TRUST ME I’M COMING BACK! LOOK OUT FOR MY NEXT BLOG POST! NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS! OUT DECEMBER 30th 🙂

In the meantime have a great rest of the week!
