January Wrap Up

We are officially a month into 2019 and so far it hasn’t been to shabby for me! I have taken my resolutions to heart this time around and actually have kept with them? I know I am shocked too! I’ve gotten a grip on my eating habits (so far) and I’m slowly working myself back up to running material–which I hope to start integrating back this month.

Reading wise, for me though, this month has been a low-key doozy, I did a lot of re-reads solely because I felt myself inching into a reading slump–which is no bueno when Netgalley decides to approve a bucket load of books for you–so I haven’t really pushed myself in the reading area much just because I didn’t wanna dive head first into the abyss of slumps.

Nonetheless though, I got a decent amount of books read within the last 31 days!

This Months music has been a throwback to my indie, folk, and pop love. However near the tail end of the month I did find myself waddling back to country–so I guess you could say January was a nice mix of things?

As usual here is a playlist of some of the songs I had on repeat this month:

  • Hope – The Chainsmokers, Winona Oak
  • Panic Cord (Hucci Remix) – Gabrielle Aplin, Hucci
  • 7 Rings – Ariana Grande
  • Don’t Save Me  – Winona Oak
  • Dancing With a Stranger – Sam Smith, Normani

  1. YESSSS Sam Smith & Normani!! They need to collaborate again and again 🥰🥰🥰 And Outlander!! I still have to watch the season finale. Bird Box was insane but since I can’t do horror alone, I had to watch it via YouTube reactors 🤣

  2. Aaah my January was me being ill the whole month and being annoyed at being ill >.> in fact, I still have a cough so thanks 2019. You know the funny thing, my Jan’s music was a hot mess of rock, indie and pop and then towards the end more country keep slipping in. Now, we kicked off Feb with country music so…similar music is happening here.

    *prepares to do battle with your slump* I’ll take your slump and make it part of my weird slump, which is still lingering *gives the reading slump evil eyes*
