December Monthly Wrap Up

December was excellent. Christmas was wonderful–I loved spending time with my family and Aric. Also, just to get this out of the way because I’m so excited to tell you, I got engaged on New Years Eve!

Family Guy

I started watching Family Guy. I love animated shows and their humor. Now that Aric and I are trying to plan our lives and deal with all that stress, it really helps to have this show to watch without thinking and lighten my day.

Gilmore Girls

I also started rewatching Gilmore Girls. I have really fond memories of this show, however, watching it the second time through I am really annoyed with the decisions everyone makes. I feel like Lorelai is the only character in the show to ever really feel the consequences of the mistakes she makes. The other characters make mistakes and are able to easily brush them off, which bothers me sometimes. It still makes me happy but I feel like I’m watching it with more mature eyes.

Black Mirror

Hopped on the Black Mirror train as well! I really like this show but some of the episodes can really bum me out so I have to space out my viewings.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I saw Star Wars. I’m not the biggest Star Wars fan, so I feel like I watch the movies without understanding everything but I enjoyed it.

Thor: Ragnarok

This was a great Thor movie! It really brought that portion of Marvel up to the same category as the other movies. I am ridiculously behind on super hero movies but I’ve decided that this year is going to be the year I catch up and understand how all the movies relate to each other.


Aric and I watched Bright at the same time in our separate houses one night and I was really surprised by how good it was. It’s on Netflix and it has magic (which I love) and talks about the tension between the different species of magical creatures.




Dave Chappelle, Todd Barry, and Michael Che


All three of these comedians have specials on Netflix. I would definitely recommend all three of them although they all used language so be aware of that.

My most popular post, as usual, was a Top Ten Tuesday post. It was Top Ten Exciting 2018 Releases.

I read three books in December although two of them were at the very beginning of the month so they seem like they were so long ago!

 Review: Daughter of the Burning City. 4.5/5 stars

Murder of the Orient Express. 3/5 stars

Roses of May. 4/5 stars

leaf iconLast Month’s Goalsleaf icon

  1. Try to get on an even more regular schedule, writing my posts before and posting it so it gets up in a good time.– Fail. Although I’m not too hard on myself because it was the holidays
  2. Read more books! Santa will get me some amazing books and I’ve rediscovered the joys of the library when I found a beautiful new library where boyfriend lives.–Fail. Only three. Again, I don’t really mind because of the holidays
  3. A personal goal–work out more. I have started doing it about every three days which makes me feel great! I want to try even more workouts.–Win. I worked out and ate a little more healthy.
  4. More creative blog posts.–Win! My blog post Books That Made Me LOL was creative.
  5. Get really awesome gifts for friends and family. I actually have a job so I can actually get my loved ones something good!–Win

leaf iconNext Month’s Goalsleaf icon

I’m going to keep these goals pretty short and simple.

  1. Don’t stress out about adulthood. I’m trying to be very proactive with wedding planning and saving money so I can move out. These are really hard things so I’m not going to stress out!

Let’s chat! I hope your month has gone awesome! Tell me all about it in the comments!

Thanks for reading!

    Also glad to see you enjoyed both the Star Wars movie and Thor: Ragnorak. Both are on my to-watch list and I hope to be able to watch them sometime in the near future (although I don’t think the latter is in theaters anymore.)
