Me in December
The first major event that happened in December was my company’s Christmas Party. It was… eventful, to say the least. I don’t normally drink alcohol so I managed to get drunk during the pre-drinks and by 11PM I was hammered. But then I started to sober up and I felt fabulous (but tired!) the next day. This then kicked off a month of drinking with my family and friends, so I pretty much spent December in some sort of drunken state.
I finished most of my Christmas shopping in November and I was SO HAPPY because that meant I wasn’t stressing out about it in December. I had a couple of things still to buy just before Christmas, though. I bought my mum’s Christmas present on Christmas Eve because I had to wait until I got paid.
I also went on a lot of cinema trips and out for a few meals, so December was definitely a month for socialising.

Book of the Month
Movies & TV
American Horror Story: I decided that December would be the month to catch up with AHS. I still haven’t finished Coven or Freak Show, but I watched Hotel anyway because I just couldn’t get into the other seasons. Hotel is much better than the previous two seasons, in my opinion, and it almost has the good ol’ vibe back. Almost. I’m still a couple of episodes behind, but I’m loving some of the characters; particularly Evan Peters’ character. For obvious reasons.
Twinsters: This is a documentary about twins who were separated at birth. I’d heard about it ages ago when one of the twins uploaded a video to Youtube to promote it, and I hadn’t realised it was out. I really enjoyed it, although I thought the ending left things a bit open ended. It was really cute though.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens: OH MY GOD. So I didn’t ADORE this movie, but I did really enjoy it. I’m still upset and angry over The Thing that happened because you can’t do that. I love Rey and Poe and BB8, though. Kylo Ren is only good for the lols, and Finn is a bore but he’s kind of cute.
The Good Dinosaur: I took my sister to see this and it upset her for the rest of the day. Oops? It’s adorable though. And yes, I cried.
Clueless: I rewatched Clueless and it’s just as great as always.
Once Upon a Time: I’m all caught up on this show. I’m sad that a certain character’s dark storyline didn’t last very long, because I love it when that happens to my favourite characters. And I still hate Rumple and I dislike the writers for continuing to show such an abusive relationship between him and Belle, but I love Captain Swan so.
Grey’s Anatomy: I’m rewatching this, as I watched up to the middle of season seven when I was younger and then stopped. I’m almost at the end of season four now and I’m shipping Meredith/Alex like you wouldn’t believe. And Lexie is adorable, and Christina remains hilarious. I’m so glad Burke is gone, so now we just have to get rid of George and Izzie and we’ll be golden.
The 100: #100rewatch is in full swing and I’m LOVING IT. This is my third full watch through and I’m still loving every moment of it. Bellarke 4eva.
I always love the new year because I always feel refreshed and excited for what’s to come! Even though I rarely stick to my resolutions, I still enjoy making them. So in January I’m hoping to take my first driving lesson in FOREVER in an attempt to pass within the next five years. My mum and I are going to see Billy Elliot at the theatre at the end of the month and I’m VERY excited. It’s going to be a complete surprise to her though! I’m looking forward watching Sherlock, and I also want to see The Revenant and The Forest. And, most importantly, The 100 IS BACK!
