January is always a month that feels like it goes on forever, am I right? The past few days at work my colleague has been saying some iteration of “how is it still January,” and I am reminded how last January felt like 84 years.
This has been a good month for me overall, I am always fueled with positive energy into the New Year, and it doesn’t hurt that my birthday is in January. I have been actively working on bettering my mental health and splitting my time better between my hobbies and friends, and it’s been lovely getting out with my friends now and again!

December was a whirlwind for me! I’m fortunate enough to work for a public university, which means that I only needed to use three vacation days to have a nice ten day vacation at the end of the year! I spent my time lounging around my dad’s house, eating food I didn’t have to cook, reading books, roasting Hallmark movies with my dad, and playing some video games. It was some much needed downtime for me and I came into 2019 restored and ready to take the world by storm!
I already wrapped up my favorite reads of 2018, and a couple on that list were read in December. I am still a bit behind on my WP Reader and blog hopping but I will be catching up this weekend so that I can get to my 2019 goal of keeping up with it daily! Let’s take one last look at 2018 through my December in Review and see what I read and played during the last month of the year.
I can’t believe that it is already December, November went by in such a blur. I had a decent reading month that was highlighted by the formation of the greatest SQUAD to ever be formed & updating my blog’s graphics! Please excuse the mess while I update old posts to match my new aesthetic, and while it is meant to be my winter theme… I don’t think I will be changing it again.
November was a month full of buddy reads and video games for me, but also a lot of sadness. My thoughts go out to everyone that was affected by the California wildfires. I am so thankful that both of the fires are fully contained and I hope that recovery for the region and those affected will be quick. Through the tragedy it has been truly inspiring to see the region come together and help one another. I was able to donate some needed supplies to the Camp Fire victims last weekend, and if you would like to help KQED has a list of charities that are accepting donations.
As I write my wrap-up, Cabin in the Woods is playing in the background, my cat is running around, and I am eating Halloween candy. 🎃👻🧛 October was a month of ultimate highs and lows for me, but Blogoween and me proudly waving my Spooky Flag all month was certainly a highlight! I want to send a heartfelt thank you to Sam and Clo for being there for me during the hard times this month… your friendship means the world to me. 💖 I am slowly coming back to myself and hope to be a better blog hopper this November!
I also would like to take the time to thank you for 500 Wordpress followers. I am truly humbled that you all are here reading my thoughts. I will be hosting a giveaway in the near future to celebrate, so stay tuned for that!
FRIENDS, HALLOWEEN SEASON IS OFFICIALLY HERE TOMORROW! 🎃👻🧛
Yes, I have been celebrating for over a month but now people won’t look at me funny for doing so! October is the best month because all the spooky movies and the weather is finally not boiling! Although the latter is yet to be seen as I am typing this from 97 degree heat, which is just rude, but according to weather forecasts I will be enjoying rainy weather in Vancouver when this post goes live!
But I digress. September was a great month for me both professionally and on the blog! I’m currently on vacation in Vancouver, Canada for a long weekend trip with my best friend to adventure and see Journey/Def Leppard. Definitely the highlight of my month. Since I am on vacation, I won’t be blog hopping or replying to comments/tweets until Wednesday!
