Monthly highlights: January 2018

Monthly highlights: January 2018

January 2018 already! Where has the time gone? The older I get, the faster it seems to fly by.

January was slow and quiet. Honestly, I struggled to think of a handful of highlights at first. But I’ve managed to scrape a few together so hopefully this post won’t be as boring as January felt.

Orange Is the New Black

I started watching OITNB way back when it first came out but I only made it to the end of season 2. I got bored of it to be honest and I could never get back into it. I started watching it again towards the end of last year but I have been well and truly hooked throughout January. I’ve just finished season 2 (again!) and I can’t wait to see what happens next. No spoilers please!

The Greatest Showman

The film

I first saw The Greatest Showman with my boyfriend one lazy Sunday afternoon. He had recommended it to me and, honestly, I hadn’t heard much about it. I don’t know how; I must have just been completely out of the loop! I fell completely in love with the film including the story, the characters and the soundtrack. I’ve since seen it two more times and I plan to go at least twice more (if I can!) before they stop showing it in the cinemas anymore.

The soundtrack

I didn’t listen to the soundtrack at all before I saw the film. Mostly because I didn’t want to spoil it for myself as a customer at work had warned me that some of the songs could give away parts of the story. I’d actually heard more about the soundtrack than the film so I hoped that the songs were going to be as good as people said they were. I was not disappointed! I love them all but some of my favourites are The Greatest Showman (obviously!), Come Alive, The Other Side and From Now On. It’s literally all I’ve wanted to listen to since I first saw the movie!

My blog makeover

It’s been a long time coming, believe me! I’ve been thinking about getting a new theme and a fresh logo for quite some time. But I got stuck in a blogging rut so it didn’t seem worth the effort and expense. However one of my new year’s resolutions was to either give my blog everything I’ve got or give it up altogether. So here I am, giving it my all and seeing where it takes me. Wish me luck! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my blog’s new look.

So that’s it. This is possibly my shortest Monthly Highlights post of all time, despite the fact that January seemed to drag on forever and ever.

Leave me a comment and let me know whether January was as boring for you as it was for me. Fingers crossed February will be more exciting!
