January ’21 | Wrap Up

So, this month I’ve tried my best to take things easy, having struggled a little with my mental health meaning that my reading hasn’t been of a top priority. Nevertheless, I’m quite impressed with how much I’ve managed to accomplish with this low mindset.

Outside the world of blogging…

As mentioned above, I’ve been a little mentally low this month, meaning I haven’t been able to achieve as much as I’d have liked. However, outside of this blog, I’ve been trying my best to keep myself distracted and active. So, this month I’ve:

  • Gotten back interested in my video games. Thanks to my boyfriend who gave me his external hard-drive I’ve been able to play Red Dead Redemption 2, which I’ve been really enjoying playing. Red Dead is one of my favourite video game franchises, so I’ve had a lot of fun pretending to be a cowboy and losing my horse numerous times.
  • Started a body positivity Instagram account where I’ve been posting daily images of myself in order to increase my confidence and acceptance of myself. So far I have 400+ followers, which is absolutely wonderful, and I feel so happy posting about my life and the daily challenges I face. For those interested, It’s @ababyplum.

  1. I loved The Cruel Prince but honestly the books just keep getting better if you continue with Wicked King and Queen of Nothing. I am glad you are enjoying your games and I don’t use Instagram but it sounds like it is really helping you which is great news. I hope February will be even better for you ♥
