These past few weeks, all of my posts have been about the shit I’ve been doing. Starting next week, I will actually be posting some posts on becoming an au pair, finding a host-family and other informative stuff that people need to know.
Highlights of April:
- Going on holiday to Wales and the Lake District
- Receiving my English driving license
- We had three days of sun!
- Two Singstar nights in one weekend. I was dying a little bit after that, but it was so worth it 🙂
Low points of April:
- I spent a lot of money (way too much money)
Now, as to my new year’s resolutions:
Read 75 books – Currently reading book no. 66, so we’re more than ahead to reach this goal.
Do at least one cultural thing a month in 2018 – Yes, yes, yes. Other than all the things I saw in Wales and the Lake District, I saw Berkeley Castle and visited another National Trust-place (can’t remember what it’s called). My host-mum is also taking me to a comedy show in Aldershot this Saturday.
Graduate – No updates on this front, because my teachers are shit.
And with regards to the little to-do-list I gave myself, I did pretty well. Got new bookshelves, bought some plants (though I still want to buy more) and got rid of old clothes. My room is slightly messy again, but that was inevitable. I started planning my road trip for this summer (SO EXCITED), booked a holiday for May half-term and made some playlists.
What I did not do: writing. Whether we’re talking about my thesis or my other writing projects – I didn’t do any writing. Since I published Long Overdue, I haven’t felt like writing anything, even though I do have ideas for a couple of different stories. I’ll try this again in May; I just have to sit down and start writing.
