I can’t believe we’re down another month. The (almost) start of one month means another wrap-up post (you can read my wrap-ups for January, February , March, April, May, June, July and August).
September was an interesting month. It started with a festival, I turned 24 and it ended with a gig (and that long forgotten, but dreaded, feeling of someone spilling a cup of piss all over you).
The new house is well underway and, whilst it’s exciting, I’m slightly nervous about the prospect of moving out in the next month. I didn’t move out for university so this will be a learning curve for me but I’m determined to make the best of it.
I feel like these last few months of 2021 are going to be all about growth, change and figuring out who I am post-university and as a mid twenty-something. It’s a daunting thought but I’m excited to find out.
I watched a bit this month. Starting with TV shows, I binge-watched season five of Below Deck: Mediterranean. I know, I know, reality TV is the worst but — honestly — after the year plus we’ve all had, I love nothing more than watching TV that lets me switch my mind off for a moment (plus I love the drama!). Next up, I finished New Girl. I’m massively late to the party on this one but, on the whole, I enjoyed it. It was a bit messy and I wasn’t a great fan of the ending but it wasn’t the worst thing I’ve watched.
I also raced through Nailed It! and Bake Squad. Don’t ask me why but I find people getting stressed out of large scale baking a bit therapeutic and both of these shows, plus The Great British Bake Off (which I’m currently watching obviously), deliver.
Now onto films. I only watched one film this month and that was Booksmart. I absolutely love this film. I think it’s because I feel like the two protagonists are me and my friends, we all worked hard at school but are definitely making up for lost time now we’re adults with jobs (and probably not enough money to be doing what we’re doing, but we’ll learn eventually!).
I posted a slightly longer TBR for October and I can’t wait to get stuck into the books.
This month, I got through 5 books, all of which were books that have been on my Kindle for some time.
These books were:
People Like Her : A suspenseful contemporary book about an influencer, her husband and a stalker intent on getting revenge.
Can Everyone Please Calm Down? A Guide to 21st Century Sexuality : Exactly as the title says, a funny, fact-filled guide on sexuality.
The Switch : A funny, family led contemporary novel (and my favourite by this author).
How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right? : An interesting and insightful look at modern life.
Shipped : A steamy, summery enemies to lovers tale set in glorious locations.
As well as Music Mondays and First Play Fridays, I posted a review of Neighbourhood Weekender in Warrington and watched The Courteeners, Blossoms, The Big Moon and Johnny Marr in Manchester this month – so my month was definitely music filled.
I also listened to The Avalanche by Liz Lawrence and Something Good Will Happen by Martha Gunn.
So that’s my monthly wrap-up for September. I’d love to know how your month was, what have you got up to/been watching/been reading? I’d love to chat with you in the comments.
