Thoughts 12.1: Life Lately

Hey all! I am feeling as inspirational as a teaspoon lately, so today I am blessing you with one of these – I know you can’t wait to read what I am up to #harHar. Firstly, I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas. I didn’t put anything up because 1) people shouldn’t be on the internet during Christmas time and 2) am uninspirational right now and the best I would have done was a pic of a Christmas tree.

SO, I am heading over to my visit my bestie in the whole wide world today! I am really excited to see my dear Bkushi.

Reading: Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead. Not very far yet, but having a good time. In fact, this is much more fun than the latest Nora Roberts trilogy I finished last Wednesday. What a disappointment! Currently in a “Read all the Things” mind-set – this can be bad for the movie part of the blog!

Watching: Mostly things in cinema, like Mockingjay Part One last week. I also recently reviewed the incredibly unsatisfactory Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies. I have the yen to watch Sherlock and Game of Thrones again, and need to start with Vikings because I have heard such good things about it.

Obsessed: Surviving December without breaking the bank, reading and watching things, and all the Christmas events that are surfacing.

I am also thoroughly obsessed with Christmas, one of the best holidays EVER.

Making 2015 the BEST YEAR EVER.

Working: on my negative attitude. That saying of: if you can’t change the situation, change your attitude about it, is the truth.

Blog wise: I am busy customising my rating system to make it more uniform and not only based on emotion. I am considering having things criteria that all count out of ten, e.g. acting, storyline, pacing, visuals, excellence within genre, etc. and then having an average based from those.I also should be writing posts on the gazillion book posts I have read, but I am feeling very uninspired and thus am writing this post LOL.

Planning:

Which subjects to take next year.

Next year.

What to get everyone for Christmas – nope, haven’t done Christmas shopping yet.

Wishes for 2015:

Fast internet

No Loadshedding

Passing all subjects

Finding something to be passionate about

Really getting my fashion blog up and running

This pic is pretty cool:

Thoughts 11.1

Well, howdy do friends. It has been a while since I wrote one of these, or anything for that matter. It’s November, so I’m probably not the only one who is cranky, tired and over this shitty year. BUT, let’s be positive and take at what is happening:

This kept me giggling for days:

politeness

(Because it is so true. I don’t know who said it but wisdom is wisdom. Note: I made this very basic image myself so POINTS FOR ME)

Watching right now:

true blood

True Blood Season one. I am in two minds about it, whether I hate it or love it, but I am nearly through it and will eventually put up a review.

I finished Homeland Season 2 this past weekend and am really happy that I started watching. You can read my review of the first season here.

Reading:

Nothing new right now. Just rehashing all my favorite Nora Roberts books, as usual. True Blood did put me in the mood to finish the Stackhouse series!

Movies I’m excited for:

Actually really just one: Mockingjay part one. EEK!!!!

Movember:

I LOVE beards. Just ask Zoë because she isn’t overly fond of them and we are always discussing the pros and cons. I think Movember is fun, because hey, when else is it acceptable for guys to look a little bit like they own white minivans? I’ve been just a bit sneaky and got some of my bestie’s favorite guys with beards in an attempt to convince her 😀

Chris Pine

We all know my love for Mr. Pine ❤

George Clooney With Beard

We have this saying in Afrikaans: “Oud maar nog nie koud”  Mr. Clooney, you define that saying.

FOR BESTIE: BRINGING IN THE BIG GUNS
