Lifestyle The Weekend Wrap-Up

January Wrap-Up!

Off the Blog

Hello humans, and one anteater in a suit who thinks he’s passing, RIDDLE ME THIS. Why is January the longest damn month in the existence of months? It feels like we’ve been doing this dance for half a year and I am TIRED.
Oddly though this last week went by in a blur! I couldn’t seem to get my feet under my body and didn’t get ANYTHING done.

Little Things That Made Me Smile

  • Hit my GOAL WEIGHT! HUZZAH! I’m such a hot little dance biscuit. Still gonna stick with keto for the other benefits, but probably not so aggressively.
  • HEAT TECH and PILE LINED SWEATPANTS from Uniqlo are my daily uniform. I look like I’m in a winter Step Up movie. I mean I don’t actually, but I feel it in my soul. And it’s amazing.
  • Rehearsals started for PETER AND THE STARCATCHER! I’m playing Ted, and I’m having a blast acting again
  • I read SEVENTEEN BOOKS LAST MONTH! I’m insanely smug about it because I want to read 100 books this year and I know I can’t keep that pace up all year, so best to get ahead now! I managed to read so many though because I got trapped in…
  • THE ROMANCE VORTEX! Basically that’s what I call it when I get caught up in romance books and end up reading 1-2 a day for like two weeks. Plus it usually coincides with these damn Polar Vortexes. SOO YOU SEE WHAT I DID. WE HAVE FUN HERE.
  • New Light by John Mayer because it’s a delightful jam

Meanwhile my imminent doom is swirling ever closer and I am PANIC ALWAYS.

And on that note, let’s see what my month looked like on the blog!

Books I Read

Not listing every book because 17 BOOKS! If you’re curious though they’re all on my Goodreads! These were my favorites:


Goals for February:

  • I really need to adjust my ratings system – it’s swings around too much based off my mood and I need like a rubric?? Maybe? I’m not sure. How do you do your ratings?
  • I want to try more discussions or alternate post types to add more variety to my blog!
  • One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to start dating again so ugh. Guess I’ll like….download Hinge or something. Honestly who has the time for that?? I just want somebody to already be around so I can use them as a pillow while I read and they can get my snacks so I don’t have to get up. Do I just want a butler maybe?

Does anyone else like to read romance books this time of year?

  1. Wow! 17 books is amazing! And I’m in the middle of Strange the Dreamer right now! I also am one of those people that can easily get sucked into a romance vortex, especially when I get very stressed and need something light and fluffy. But I’m particular with my romances, so that can make things difficult. Best of luck on your February goals!

    1. Yesss!! I also find romance books are great with getting me out of a reading slump because they’re just so easy to get into! I can also be particular about them though, I really hate certain popular tropes and I usually don’t find out they’re gonna happen till it’s too late 😩
      Thank you!! Happy readings!
