I didn’t like it.
I also tried to start Blogilates, but I gave up after two days because 1) there is literally no room in my house to do it (my room’s too small, my parents’ room doesn’t have enough floor space, and my dad is downstairs all day every day) and 2) I just literally couldn’t do it. I couldn’t control my breathing properly, and I had a really hard time doing the moves. My mum asked me if I want to go to aqua aerobics with her and her friend, so I might do that instead. I haven’t been happy with my body for a long time now, and I’m sick of just sitting around being sad about it.
I went back to university on the 26th and I’m already having to sing songs in my head. My friends do literally nothing but complain about the course. I got tired of it towards the end of last semester and I’m already tired of it this semester. Fair enough, our creative writing teacher makes mildly sexist comments here and there (one friend said that his class is an ‘unsafe environment’), but whenever he goes off topic I just don’t listen to him. And I’m far beyond the point of caring now. I’ve only got one essay to write this term, so I just want to get through this with no problems and with a good mark. I complain about things quite a lot, but not every single day like my friends do and it’s just really starting to get on my nerves now. I have enough negative thoughts of my own, I don’t need to constantly have other people’s thrown at me.
Anways, onto happier things. At the end of the month, my brother and I went to the huge shopping centre that’s about 30 mins away from where we live because he needed to go to the Apple Store to sort out something with iTunes, and I needed something to do. I was good, because I managed to not buy any books (I’m currently on a ban), but I did come home with two box sets of The Simpsons and two band shirts from HMV. There was another shirt that was being displayed on the wall that I would have given my soul to own, but they didn’t have any out on the shelves, which is a total bummer, but I found it on Amazon so all is well. Also, not in the same day though, I got the entire first 4 seasons of Futurama in one box set, and I’m planning on making a lot of reaction gifs from them (I may do that with The Simpsons, but it would take so long to do), so hopefully you can expect to see some soon!

And even though the clip that the above gif was made from is a little over 20 years ago, he’s still just as gorgeous. Trust me.
- Keep on top of my reading for university – This semester I have two novels to read, but I’ve read them before. I also hate both of them. But, I have a lot of short stories to read too, and last year I kept falling behind because I wanted to read my own books. I’m really trying to find a balance in how much I read, so hopefully I’ll be able to read for the blog and also for university.
- Get my gif-making groove on – Recently I made a few gifs, and I’m hoping to do a series of reaction gif masterposts, because sharing is caring and I don’t want to look like I’m selfish with my gifs. I’m going to try to make as many as I can from as many DVDs as I can, so it might be a while before those posts appear.
- Continue commenting – I didn’t do much commenting at all this month because I had a serious lack of motivation recently, so I’m hoping to make more commenting rounds and also discover some new blogs because I don’t follow that many blogs at the minute.
- Try out a themed month of some sort – I like to build my monthly TBRs based on genre and also the time of year, and since Valentine’s is in February, I’m going to be jumping on the cliche train and reviewing a lot of romances this month.
How was January for you?
