January | 2017

I always assume that after the craziness of the festive season, january will be really quiet and uneventful. I always forget that january brings with it my dads, mums, and granddads birthday, and 3 university deadlines so my month ends up being pretty jam-packed!

Day to day, I've mostly been stuck in my bedroom sat at my desk trying to get three essays written. It's weird that for blog posts or when I'm just writing in general, the words come so easily and I could write hundreds of words in the space of five minutes, but when it comes to an essay, that's a whole different story! I could be at my desk for hours and only manage to write a few hundred words so january has been pretty stressful to say the least. Although because there's been so many birthdays in january, I have been out for quite a lot of family meals which has been a wonderful break after a full day of uni work. 

My biggest highlight of this month has to be seeing The Lion King. I wrote an entire post about my visit down to London for it so I won't ramble on again here, but it was honestly one of the most incredible shows I've ever seen. I'm still thinking about it now! 
Another highlight was FINALLY getting to see Moana in cinemas. It came out back in early december and I can't believe how late I am to this party, but I finally managed to see it and it was in-credible! I cried, I laughed and I left the cinema with butterflies in my tummy! I've been listening to the music ever since (Lin-Manuel Miranda is fricking amazing!) and I can't wait until it comes out on dvd so I can add it to my collection!

My biggest favourite this month probably has to just be music. I mean I'm always listening to music but this month I've really not been doing much else with my spare time! There's been many an evening where I've been lost into the world of youtube, listening to disney playlists and belting out the lyrics when no ones home!
