I started this blog and proceeded to neglect it for a few months. This month was actually my most prolific in terms of reading but I suppose that was because my second semester lectures didn't start until the beginning of February.
Not much happened in terms of blog or life in general
This was the month I finally got my blogging pants on and really went to town getting everything spruced up. Coincidentally it was also the last month of my first year in University.
Back home and I kicked my heels for a few weeks because at the end of the month I went on Cricket Tour to Barbados resulting in a 3 week slump in posting.
Once I was back and in the swing of things again it was in this month that my bestie Jess and I went on the first book-hauling Road Trip of Awesome to see our friend Ellie at her super-cool bookshop in the Peak District.
A pretty good month since not only did Jess and I go on *another* Roadtrip the day when Mockingjay came out but I also went to London for a few days with my boyfriend which was fantastic!
Ok start to the month but after I moved back to University I was without internet for two weeks so not a whole lot happened.
Did my Favourites Fortnight feature that ended up lasting a week. I turned 20 *eep* and my second year of university officially began.
The month when everything went tits up. I started the month in the most stressful way possible by trying to doing NanoWrimo, by halfway through the month I quit and tried to salvage my fast-diminishing enthusiasm for my Uni course. But just before the end of November I made the decision to drop out of Uni and had to start the procedure of withdrawing. It was a very stressful time for me and my family since there had been 3 deaths in my extended family in the space of a week or two on top of my problems. But on the bright side I got to read Last Sacrifice two-three weeks earlier than everyone else :P
I came home and had to start the incredibly soul-munching task of finding a job and applying to a new course to start in September 2011. In the run-up to Christmas there was quite a worry about my Grandad who was in and out of hospital with pneumonia, thankfully he was able to be home before Christmas Day. After getting a fab load of presents the week between Christmas & New Year brought me closer to a job that I really want *keeps fingers crossed* so hopefully in the next few days I'll hear more about that.
And What now... ? What does 2011 have in store for me? I just hope it's not too bad...
But anyway back to what happened on the blog in December
