November went by soooo fast. This entire year went by soooo fast. I can’t believe it’s already December… I’m excited for Christmas, of course and I already have most of the decorations up but gosh. Why can’t time just stop and slow down so I can catch my breath.
The Brilliant Death by Amy Rose Capetta // 4.5 Stars. I got this book sent to me since I participated in the blog tour. I really enjoyed this one.
Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse // 3.5 Stars. I read this for my history class. Most every time I picked it up I started getting tired so it took me a while to finish but it was good and made me think.
These are the most important books for me to finish this month. I started all of them so far. One of them is for school and another is a Netgalley book for review. I’ve been trying to set a goal for myself to read every day, no matter how much. Even if it’s just one or two chapters.
Most Popular Post:
No surprise that my most popular post was a discussion post! Last-minute on the day before Thanksgiving I decided to write about the history of the holiday and how it affects me as a Native American. A lot of people seemed to take my post to heart and it made me feel proud of who I am and where I come from. Thank you all for the support ❤
The only blog posts I’ve been writing lately are my reviews of K-Pop comebacks. I love writing these because they’re simple and easy and although they can be really long and take a while to put together, I find new artists each month so it’s a lot of fun. Make sure to let me know if there’s any other music, TV shows, or movies you’d like me to check out and possibly write a review for. I’m open to suggestions 🙂
Also I just switched over to the new WordPress editor midway through writing this post. I have no idea what I’m doing so the formatting might end up weird. We’ll see what happens.
Not much has been happening besides school for me. I’m almost done with my World History class and then I just have English and German to finish and I’ll be a High School graduate! I’m excited to finally finish but then I’ll have to study for my AP exams so that I can take them in the Spring.
I also applied for a volunteering position at my local library. They don’t have any openings for adults (I’m 18), but since I’m still technically a student until I graduate sometime early next year they said that I can attend their orientation in January and volunteer until I graduate. I also applied for a position at Barnes & Noble. I haven’t talked about it anywhere because I don’t want to jinx it or get my hopes up but yeah I’m excited.
I voted early in the month on voting day. This was the first year I was able to vote and I never really cared about politics and voting until… well… Trump happened so now I feel an obligation to vote haha. It made me feel good.
Be completely honest, did you think I’d actually write something this month?
Funny enough, I had faith in myself. I did write about 100 words in These Memories Shall Burn and I read through some of We’re All Beautiful. I do want to start revisions on We’re All Beautiful but I want to first plan out the entire book neatly so I can follow a plan and finish the book lol.
What I Watched:
I didn’t watch many actual TV shows. However, my family did watch a lot of UFC matches, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, and random compilations on YouTube.
We also watched Crazy Rich Asians. I’m so happy I finally got to see it. I loved every moment. There was a few things that could have been done better or should have been added but overall it was a great movie.
What I Listened To:
That’s literally all I listened to this month, no surprise there. Mostly I listened to EXO‘s new album on repeat and fell in love with Lay’s solo stuff. Here’s some of my favorites I think you should check out:
I just want to talk about Chen’s “I can’t believe” at the beginning and Sehun getting LINES F I N A L L Y. I am also salty over this being their last comeback before Xiumin has to enlist in the military and he got ONE line where his voice was edited to sound like a demon🙃
I never gave Lay much attention in EXO videos which I feel ashamed for because he’s such a great human being?? He’s quiet but he’s SO hard-working, kind, and humble. I’ve been watching a lot of the interviews he did while promoting his new album in America and his English is really good. I just fell in love with him this month, basically. The above video is in English and the visuals are amazing so please check it out!
I wasn’t sure how to feel about Jennie already getting a solo debut since Blackpink hasn’t been around that long but I like the song more than I thought I would. I’m proud of her and hope the rest of the girls also get this solo treatment.
HERE is my playlist for November! It was hard to make this playlist because although I liked a lot of songs this month it was hard to keep the playlist a reasonable size haha.
What’s Happening in December:
- A.C.E concert! As of the time I’m writing this post, there’s only 9 days left until I see them!! I’m so excited but it doesn’t feel like it’s actually going to happen lol.
- Get a job (hopefully)
- GOT7 (holiday-themed!) and Day6 comeback
- i felt like there was more but i forgot oops.
What was your November like? Are you ready for the holidays? Do you have any holiday songs/shows/movies/etc. I should check out? Let me know!
