January has been quite a boring month. In fairness, I don’t very much mind starting the year with a month where nothing really happens, because it means I can only hope the coming months will hold a bit more excitement. If January had been too good, I’d be worrying that the other eleven won’t match up. (Or at least that’s what I’m going to keep telling myself.)
It snowed, it rained, it froze, it flooded, and all the rest. I’ve started my ‘2013’ album on Facebook (I upload so few pictures to Facebook I only need one album per year) and all that’s in it s far is pictures of snow and frozen things. As I said, not the most exciting month.
You might think that with the terrible weather and the not-leaving-the-house, I would have read millions of books. I would have thought the same, if I’m honest, but somehow I did not. I read two books. Three if you want to count the fact that I listened to an audiobook of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. One of those books was Warm Bodies which was supremely awful. The other was The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared, which I actually loved, even if it was unexpectedly long. I did write a couple of book reviews at Judging Covers, though.
In terms of work and education and all that self betterment, I’ve been working on a freelance project that I feel very good about (but don’t want to go into detail about on here), and I have signed up for some courses on Coursera. If you’ve never heard of Coursera, go have a look! I can’t vouch for any of it being useful in ~the real world~ but learning is fun and free learning is fantastic.
So, even though I have next to nothing to say about the month just gone, there it is. How did your January go?
