December Wrap Up

HAPPY NEW YEARS STORYTELLERS! 2018 was a whirlwind personally and professionally, both in a positive and negative ways. I have grown a lot in these 365 days and I have learned a lot not only about myself but about the world around me. I have gained so many new friends during 2018 that it almost makes up for the shitty times the year doled out to me. But in the end, honestly, I am just so looking forward to what 2019 has in store for me and this little nook in the woods.

2018 aside, December was a coo-coo month for me! I wrapped up my fall theatre season as a Stage Manager, fought my way through the crowds (my social anxiety and claustrophobia was not happy with this) for Christmas presents and decorations, and read/watched/listened to some great pieces of fiction…as well as some duds.

So grab a snack, get comfy in your footie pajamas and let’s see what all I did in the month of December!

    1. I adore Halsey! Her lyrics and tonality is what drew me in and it’s been a 10/10 recommend since! And Santa Clarita Diet is a disturbingly addictive show? like I only watched one episode so far, but I weirdly just want to binge the entire thing. lololololol. Let me know your thoughts if you start it!

  1. I finished my rewatch of Buffy season 1 this week….1st or 2nd Jan I think. It’s a time honestly, and I’m finding my courage to start on season 2 hehe.

    *gives you all the popcorn* yay for wading through crowds to get presents though! I wouldn’t even entertain the idea, just run the other way, it was bad enough throughout December with the crowds in town. And I had to be in town for college, so I couldn’t escape the horrid crowds >.>

    My december mostly consisted of me flapping over getting graphics done, it was a time Sam as well as falling behind on erm blog hopping to Bookending Winter xD
