My Life...

Monthly Rewind

I was so inspired by Jamie (The Broke and The Bookish and The Perpetual Page-Turner) and her monthly rewinds that I decided to start doing them too. I always feel that when reading someone's rewinds I get to know this person a little better each month and that's why I want to share my January with you.

January in One Word
I am a student and term officially ended yesterday so not only had I exams to prepare for and papers to write I also tutor high school students in English and some of them had exams too. So I either studied or tried really hard to explain the different between Past tense and Past perfect tense or what the Boston Tea Party was about.

5 Things that Happened in January
  1.  My best friends turned 27 and he almost freaked out about the David Garrett concert ticket I gave him. We'll go see it together in May. 
  2. I got sick - twice!
  3. I received two books everyone was raving about - Just One Day by Gayle Forman and The Archived by Veronica Schwab.
  4. I went out with my friends again after a long long time. 
  5. I went to the cinema and watched "Life of Pi".

5 Random Things I (Re-)Discovered/Liked this Month
  1. I suck at writing reviews right after I'm finished reading the book. That's why I cannot always find the right words when I finally write it. 
  2. the magic of Twitter - I never thought that I could connect with people who live thousands of miles away so well via the internet.
  3. I watched the NFL conference finals and two times a year (second will be the Super Bowl on Sunday) I like watching football. Even thought I have trouble getting the rules sometimes.
  4. Those cold and snowy winter days make me feel like a child again. Me and my dog played in the snow for hours and I didn't mind that I was so wet and cold in the end. 
  5. Tea! I love drinking tea when it's cold outside but I hardly ever have some because usually I drink coffee and I'm just to lazy to make some tea when I'm thristy so I have water instead.

Things I'm Looking Forward to in February
  • my birthday!
  • time to breath between my end of January exams and my end of February/beginning of March exams.
  • seeing my friends baby boy again (even though he's not a baby anymore).
  • reading books that are a bit thicker because I won't spend that much time on public transport - and some of those books are heavy.
  • particiapting in Bloggiesta - it's been too long!

A big "Thank you" to Jamie for letting me borrow some of her categories and ideas. 
You're the Best!
