I still find it weird to write 2018 instead of 2017. I guess that’s going to last a while. Anyway, as usual I’m doing a quick roundup of some new things I tried this month. It feels like January has been kind of non-stop, which isn’t great because December was too and, honestly, I need… Continue reading New things I tried in January 2018
Today is my 29th birthday. It doesn’t feel like it. Perhaps because it’s a Wednesday and I as such I have distributed plans for celebration. I went to see my dad last weekend, this weekend I’ll hang out with P and some friends (although, I’m meeting friends for DnD that was organised ages ago and… Continue reading My birthday
Seems to be I’m always getting spoiled way more than I deserve and Christmas is no exception to that. So I thought I’d use this post to express my gratitude for all the lovely things I recently recieved. Christmas gift-giving was a little split up this year. I swapped gifts with a few friends fairly… Continue reading Christmas pressies
There’s something about the phrase “new year’s resolution” that makes me nervous. It always feels like there’s a lot of pressure. Besides, I make “resolutions” at all times of year, and when I don’t name them as such they seem a lot easier to keep. I don’t like this attitude of looking at all the… Continue reading 2018 Goals/Resolutions
We made it! Personally, I enjoyed a lot of 2017. I graduated with my PhD, got a new job, travelled, saw friends get married, and more. I must be one of less than 1% of people on the planet who was that lucky because, I don’t know if you noticed, but if you… Continue reading Happy New Year!
It’s the last round up/status report of the year! December, as perhaps should be expected, has been a bit of a whirlwind this year and January is already looking like it’s going to follow suit (I really must start blocking out one weekend a month during which I will do nothing). However, I will do… Continue reading December roundup
Every month I set myself the challeng of trying 5 new things. They can be big things like visiting a country for the first time, or small things like trying a new app or a new type of food. Even so, to find 5 every month can be a bit of a challenge sometimes, and… Continue reading Favourite new things I tried in 2017
Let’s continue with the year in review posts, shall we? We’ve already had favourite beauty products, favourite books (both fiction and nonfiction), favourite movies and TV shows, and places visted and instagram posts and I’ve nearly (but not quite) run out. Now it’s time for favourite events. This year was particularly wonderful for the events… Continue reading Favourite events of 2017
I hope you’re having a very Merry Christmas! We always alternate where we spend Christmas. This year we’re spending Christmas with P’s family in Scotland, and then we’ll go down to Leeds for New Year. Next year we’ll switch it around. Today we’ll be at P’s eldest sister’s home, where we’ll eat to much, probably… Continue reading Merry Christmas!
I fell out of love with Instagram a bit this year. I still post every now and then, but the removal of the map feature, plus annoying tweaks to its algorithms really annoyed me. I think if I’m going to keep using it in 2018 I’ll need something to give me a push, maybe a… Continue reading Favourite Instagram posts of 2017
