November Wrap-Up

4 december 2016

November was a bit of a weird month for me. It was a very busy month, with a lot of different emotions.
First of all, my grandma got ill. One day she was fine, and the next day she was in so much pain she couldn't walk. It was scary, seeing her that way. She has spend 2 weeks in the hospital before getting surgery, and because I wanted to visit her I had to conquer my fear of hospitals (I succeeded 😁). She had surgery at the beginning of the week, and she's doing a lot better now, thank God!
I also started seeing a new therapist. I had a good relationship with my previous one, but I needed to go to a new one to really get the help I need. It was very scary, because getting a new therapist is a scary thing. Having a good one that you can connect with is just so vitally important. I've seen her twice now, and she's very nice, so that's great!
I've also talked about the fact that I'm kind of homeschooling myself right now, and that I was doing 3 subjects. This month, I added a 4th one 🙌 I decided to add chemistry, and it's been very though. I've forgotten everything I've learned previously, and it's very very frustrating. 
And of course, there were the US elections. I don't really want to say much about them, but let's just say that I was, and still am, devastated.
So overall, November wasn't really the best month for me, so I hope December is going to be a lot better!

Reading-wise, my November was okay. I didn't read as much as I wish I had, but I've been so busy with other things that I kind of forgot about it. Overall, I've still managed to read 6 books.

Timekeeper, by Tara Sim - /5 stars
The Blazing Star, by Imani Josey - /5 stars
The Sun is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon - /5 stars
Holding Up the Universe, by Jennifer Niven - /5 stars
The Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan (re-read) - /5 stars
Meester Bart op zijn best, by Bart Ongering - /5 stars

I'm currently reading both Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne and The One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg. Am I Normal Yet? is a very difficult read for me, because I can see a lot of myself in the MC Evie, and that's very confronting. Luckily, The One Hundred Nights of Hero is a bit of an easier read, and it's absolutely beautiful so far! I haven't seen it around a lot, but I would definitely recommend it 🙌
Someone on Twitter mentioned that they made a playlist every month, so they could look back on the past month's playlists and remember exactly what they were feeling those months. Those playlists became some kind of timecapsule for them. I thought that was an amazing idea, so I started doing them too!
As you can see, I was really on a Disney kick this month. I watched Hercules again, and I absolutely fell in love with the songs I Won't Say (I'm in Love) and Go the Distance! There were also a few Youtubers that came out with their albums, and I loved them SO MUCH. 
Another thing that was very exciting to me was the Hamilton mixtape! I loved each and every song that came out in November, and you can expect a lot of the newly released mixtape songs on my December playlist 💖💖

So, that was what my month was like. Now tell me, did you have a good November? What books did you read?
