Monthly Rewind // October & November

My Month in Review

So… this is super late and a two month affair. Thanks to NaNoWriMo, a keyboard that only works part of the time, a lack of productivity, and plenty of end-of-the-semester projects, I haven’t been around much at all. School is about to end this week, though, so hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of things.

Music of the Month

You get TWO playlists! The second one, NaNoWriMo 2016, has some older songs from other playlist as well, so it’s more like 1 and a half playlist.

Quote of the Month

It’s my birthday today. I’m not seventeen anymore. The seventeen Janis Ian sang about where one learns the truth. But what she failed to mention is that you keep on learning truths AFTER 17, and I want to keep on learning truths till the day I die.

Challenges – Progress

For the first time, I decided to do Pretty Deadly Review‘s seasonal bingo, and I actually did pretty well, all things considering. All those graphic novels really helped. I got four bingos, so I’m pretty happy with that!

Favorite Non-Book Things

1 // Timeless: I can’t believe that this show hadn’t debuted when I wrote my last wrap-up – it’s plenty loads of fun and I can’t imagine not having it on my TV now. It does a good job of highlighting lesser figures in history, especially women and women of color.

2 // Happy Endings: I finally rewatched the third season of this amazing show – WHY WAS IT CANCELED? That’s all I can say, really.

3 // Zootopia: I watched this latest from Disney, and I have to say that I’m quite smitten. It’s adorable, but has an interesting look at things like racism, although it’s obviously very simplified.

4 // The Originals: I’m also working on rewatching the beginning of Season 3 before finally watching the last bunch that I haven’t seen yet. It’s full of so much drama in the best way possible.

5 // Tumblr: I’ve been doing a lot of posting, reblogging, creating aesthetics and such, and generally wasting time on Tumblr lately. Check out my main account here if you’re bored.

A Goal for December

Get back into the groove of things, but mainly I want to do a lot of reading before the year ends.
