What’s on in October?
- Lifestyle: Now that I have extra time, I’d really like to focus on going to the gym and eating more healthily. My weight stayed pretty consistent through MSc year, but a lot higher than where I’d like it to be, so I’m hoping to take control of that!
- Blogging: I’m taking part in Blog Ahead, and also preparing for sci-fi month, which I’m seriously excited for, so I’m planning to put some hours into blogging this month.
- NaNo consideration/prep: MSc year was just never going to work with NaNoWriMo, but this year I feasibly could take part… There’s just the minor problem that I have no burning ideas! I want to take some time this month to play around, brainstorm and see if I can come up with something to run with, because I do love to write.
- Games & fun: Gaming has been a sadly non-existent hobby for the last year and I’d really like to get back into it (I pretty much suck at games, but I enjoy them!). Similarly, there are plenty of TV shows/films I’ve never made time to give a chance to, and I feel like now, while things are reasonably calm is a great time to try and squeeze them in.

Ice Like Fire | Review copy
The White Rose| Review copy
I’m keeping my TBR list reasonably small despite the free timeI have this month for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I’m just not sure what I fancy reading at the moment, and secondly, I’ve no idea yet whether writing up my dissertation is going to be a one day a week sort of commitment or a five days a week one, so I don’t want to set my goals too high, especially with all the other things I want to get done this month!
