Happy new year 2021! I can’t believe we’ve passed the first month of 2021. Usually, January is my most productive month compared to other months, but not this year. I honestly feel like this is version 2.0 of 2020 since nothing seems to change.
First thing first, I finally graduated from college!! I actually passed my thesis defense back in December, but it became official in January when I got the letter. Now I’m just waiting for the graduation ceremony in March, while doing something that every recent college-grad hate…job hunting. Not gonna lie, most of my January were spent looking for jobs at job portals but ended up applying to none of them because I’m honestly confused at what I want to do. I don’t like my major that much which is why I’m looking for something else, but I haven’t found that something yet. If you have any tips about finding job as a recent graduates I’d appreciate it ❤
This month, I start a bunch of TV series but only finished like, 2 of them. My first k-drama of the year is 365 : Repeat the Year, which is great if you love time-travel/crime k-drama (also, the main leads have incredible chemistry despite having no love line!!). I also finished True Beauty, which is so cheesy that it’s funny. Other than that, I also started Voice, Mr. Queen, The Queen’s Gambit (super late but I love it so far!), and Sugar Rush and I’m still watching all of them.
Another reason why I’ve been so unproductive this month is because I started playing Genshin Impact! I rarely play video games (the only computer games I still play nowadays is The Sims), but Genshin Impact turns out to be interesting so now I’m obsessed 😌
I’m still in a bit of slump in January, but most of what I read were pretty good. Here’s what I read :
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – 4/5 stars
Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse – 5/5 stars
A Taste for Love by Jennifer Yen – 4/5 stars
Vampire Academy – 2.5/5 stars
The Project by Courtney Summers – 4/5 stars
My favorite book from January is definitely Black Sun. It’s SO GOOD, and I can’t wait for the sequel. My least favorite is Vampire Academy. It’s not bad (I was actually obsessed with it back when I first read it in 2014), but over the years I’ve read more amazing books so it kinda pales in comparison. I’m still gonna continue reading it though because I want to read the sequel series, Bloodlines, and for the nostalgia.
