Wrap Ups

January and February Wrap Up

Hello everyone! January and February were busy months for me. Sorry for not writing a wrap up post at the end of January.


What I did in January and February

University started again! I’m in my second trimester of my MSc in Publishing and that means I’ve already finished more than a third of my degree. I passed all of my courses, which I’m really happy about.

Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week was last month also, and I wrote a post about my favourite books with aro spec rep.

In January I wrote a post about my reading habits. I also wrote about my goals for 2018. One of my favourite picture books has to be Noah the Narwhal, so I was absolutely delighted to interview the author, Judith Klausner.

I’m doing work experience at Edinburgh University Press at the moment. It’s fascinating! They are an academic publisher, that publish both books and journals. I’m getting the chance to find out more about all of the different departments: marketing, editorial, production, and finance. I’m really enjoying my work experience.

I started using Duolingo a few weeks ago to practise my French and it’s going really well. However, my Sinhala is not going that well because there are really not that many learning resources for it. I try to do as much as I can with what I do have.

I was pretty sick for some time. I had a viral inner ear infection, which was causing awful vertigo. I swear, vertigo is really awful. I’m slowly getting better.

What I’ll be doing in March

My work experience will be ending next Wednesday, so I’m going to enjoy my last two days.

I have a few ARCs that I hadn’t read yet due to being sick in February, so I need to get to them. I’m really looking forward to reading The Girl and the Grove, because it’s about environmental advocacy.

I’ve not been able to blog hop that much in the last few weeks, but I really want to do it in March!

I’ve set myself the goal of stretching every day for the next month. Let’s see how that goes!
