Wrap Up | November

Wrap Up | November

The end of the year is almost upon us and I am not ready for it in any shape or form. Things got super intense at uni this month as I had to submit my PhD research proposal to my department for early feedback before the funding deadline in January, so I’ve been working flat out on my proposal all month meaning that both my reading and blog got horribly neglected. I had been planning for November & December to be my catch up months, and the thought of having to squeeze all of the catch up into just December now is making me a bit nervous haha!

I beat my second reading challenge goal of the year! Round 1 saw me smash my goal of 50 books, and now I’ve beaten my stretch goal too!

Hey friends, welcome to The Sunday Post – a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer to share all the weekly news and feels!

Last week I talked about how excited I was for reading week this week and how much stuff I was going to get done. *Insert canned audience laughter* Of course, that didn’t happen. I didn’t get any work done for my uni course or any life stuff sorted. So, what did I actually do?

The Sunday Post | Reading Week Joy

Hey friends, welcome to The Sunday Post – a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer to share all the weekly news and feels!

I am very happy that is finally reading week even though I still have a lot of work to do during this week. Things on my course are about to ramp up about 100% once reading week is over as I have to start putting together my funding proposal and apply for my PhD so it’s going to be super stressful, so having this week as a little bit of breathing space before that happens is going to be nice. It also gives me a chance to catch up on all of the reviews, reading and such that I put off this week!

– Top 10 Video Games –

I’m back with Top 10 Tuesday! I haven’t done it for almost a month partly because I haven’t had much time recently and partly because I wasn’t feeling the past few topics. This week though is a freebie prompt which I’ve been really excited about, especially after seeing Mel‘s post about her top 10 video games. I posted up a poll on twitter asking what topic you’d like to see me do this week and video games won with 57% of the vote, so that’s what you’re all getting for this week 😉
