jan 2020 – monthly wrapup

ello 🙂

welcome to my first monthly wrap up of jan 2020 where i look back and reflect on all things good. i’d love to hear what you got up to in jan too so pop by in the comment – promise i don’t bite!

moments i’m proud of:

  • i got my exam result for an accounting paper; i did much better than i thought and proved the self-doubts in my mind wrong.
  • i sat my driving theory exam and passed
  • i decided to be brave and start tackling my fear of dogs. it’s something i’m hoping to work on slowly over the coming months, so that one day i won’t feel so panicked and uncomfortable at the sight of a dog. although i kept  trying to evade the dog, i managed to eventually chill with a cute, medium sized dog, let him sit by me and occasionally stroke it. it was a nice experience; the owner was very considerate and open to questions, and non-judgemental of my dsakldjadsk nature around the dog. update: so today i went for a walk and i ran across the road when the most adorablest puppy tried to come near me. i was so embarrassed at my response because the owner looked so amused

books i read:


this author really knows how to create the most unexpected plot twist that is literally revealed in the last chapter. had me speechless.


i read this on the kindle app. someone recommended it to me and mentioned they’re letting you get it for free for a bit. so of course imma check it out – free books! it’s a series and it’s so freaking good! the plot twist and supernatural element to it just reels you in. i managed to get the second book for free too by subscribing to the newsletter. below is my favourite quote from the book; one that has me like oof and kinda wish i penned that.

“What can we call such creatures as the Kellys and the Benders? They look like us, speak like us, but their hearts are as black as the anonymous graves of their victims. Are such beings born or created? I don’t know. But you asked me before if I believe in the devil.” She smiled. “The answer is yes, dear, I do. And so, I think, should you.”

things i watched:

 (the plot in this was super mind boggling to get my head around – quite disorientating. like a dream within a dream within a dream…but super cool concept and i loved the plot and how it was captured cinematically). here’s the trailer

      yes! i agree. i spent some time with a therapy dog and she was the sweetest and provided such a soothing, comforting experience.

      oooh yes, it’s very complex but so intense. can never guess what’s happening. if you ever get round to seeing it, do let me know your thoughts 🙂

      and thank you! you too grace
