November is here.
The month primarily known for being not-yet-December.
Christmas is creeping in from all sides.
Although November is never as exciting as December, I do have a few things to look forward to this month.
The days are dark, and I’m currently snuggled up in bed with both a blanket and two duvets to keep warm and cosy.
Throwback: 8 things I wanna do in October
In November I want to…
- … Complete exam week. We have exams 4 times a year at university, and this week is going to be tough! I’m particularly nervous for the one where I must memorise a lot of physiology knowledge – it’s the course with the highest failure rate, but I think I’ll make it through.
- … Visit København Bogmesse
(Copenhagen Book fair). My parents have gone for the past few years and seem to enjoy it, so this time I’m going with them – they’re driving through Odense on the way there anyway.
- … Celebrate my brother’s birthday. In my head my little brother is still like 16, but in real life he’s on the last year of his bachelor’s degree and turning 21… they grow up so fast!
- … Bring out the Christmas decorations. Growing up, there was rule in the house we couldn’t hang up the Christmas decorations before my brother’s birthday, and I still feel like that’s a good mark. It’s usually around the 1st advent anyway, and I feel it’s hard to keep the Christmas vibes and excitement up for too long.
- … Go to my hospital appointment for my neck. Finally. I’m going to be so upset if they can’t help me, so I don’t want to get my hopes up.
- … Find something to fill the Stranger Things hole.
In October, I was excited for season 2 to come out. That only lasted me 2 days. At least there’s a new season of QI, but it doesn’t have the same binge-potential.
- … Practice gratitude. I started this little gratitude project where I’ll share a few things I’m grateful for every night on Instagram. I don’t always remember, but it is a nice way to end the day.
- … Vote at the local election. I guess it translates to county and regional elections? Political systems are difficult to translated. I think it’s important to vote and show politicians they should care about you – especially because local politics are dominated by older people. So here’s my strong suggestion for you to research your candidates, take a test, and get out to vote!
