Summer 2016 Reading List

East Strand, Portrush, Northern Ireland. Taken on 13th July 2016. A summery day!

Hello once again! Twice in one day, I’m spoiling you today 😝 

Earlier I mentioned my reading list. Since I actually managed to read the majority of my list last year, if not all of it, I thought I would share with you this year’s list to have read before I (hopefully) return to university in September. I’ve no idea what order they’ll be read in but don’t worry, all reviews will be posted asap after I’ve finished each book!

  1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This is part of #GGbookclub ‘s book club that I decided to join after suggesting starting a book club. If anyone’s interested in joining, find them on Twitter at @theggbookclub !
  2. What Dreams Are Made Of by Sheila O’Flanagan.
  3. I’ll Run To You by Nikki Vale.
  4. Almost Dead by T. R. Ragan
  5. The Housewife Assassin’s Vacation To Die For by Josie Brown. I started this series last summer and fell in love so I have this and then book 6 to read!
  6. The Housewife Assassin’s Recipes for Disaster by Josie Brown.

Six books. That should be easy enough to complete, shouldn’t it? I normally would aim for more but we’ll see how this list goes.
Enjoy your evening or have a good night’s sleep! Feel free to join me in reading these and we can have a good discussion about them when we’re both done.

Wishful Wednesday

Okay so firstly I want to apologise for yesterday’s post (Two for Tuesday) as I had scheduled it to be  around 10pm – or so I thought. Instead, it went at 1pm, so all my “tonight” comments were way off – sorry!
But enough of that, how are you? I feel like I haven’t actually talked to you properly in a while. Don’t know if that’s down to trying out these new themed posts or if I’ve just been slightly distant recently. Has that come across in my posts?
Today’s Wishful Wednesday’s addition to the bucket list is to find and do well in a job I love. I went to the second round of interviews today, except it wasn’t really an interview as such. Instead, they had me doing the one thing they promised me I wouldn’t be doing – going door to door and asking people to sign up for a direct debit donation to a charity. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for donating to charities! However, I am completely against going from door to door, invading people’s personal property and asking them to divulge bank information to you when they’ve only just met you. I know how uncomfortable it makes me feel if someone comes to my door asking me to sign up for something, so I definitely don’t want to make other people feel the same. 

So after almost 5 hours of knocking on doors, I asked to go home. I had been told on the phone last week, and in person yesterday, that the position would definitely not involve going door to door, and I wasn’t impressed at the lie. Following my request to leave, I was told that if I left I wouldn’t be considered for the job. Now I have to admit that at that point I may have seen red and told them what they could do with their job. So once again, I’m job hunting. Feel free to point me in the direction of any jobs you know of!

Now, if I managed to do well in University, I would love to go into teaching. The more I think about it, the more interested I am in Primary Education. For anyone who’s been here a while, you might remember my work experience in a primary school last year. I adored it! It made me desperate to get my degree and get started on my career in education. However, over the last few days, I’ve found myself wondering if it would be possible to get into teaching without the physics degree I’m currently working on. What are your thoughts?

Wishful Wednesday

Hey! Please be patient with me as I try a few new things here on my blog, I felt like it needed a bit of a change up. Before I start, how are you today? I can hardly believe it’s only Wednesday, feels like this week has been going on forever!

Today I was up at 6:30am to get ready to go to my granny’s house to help her clean for my cousins coming over for this wedding. We worked from before 9am until at least 3:30pm so suffice to say I’m exhausted tonight. Legs are shaved, everywhere’s exfoliated, and I’m ready for my first ever fake tan tomorrow! Kind of excited, kind of nervous. Not sure what to expect. Have you had a spray tan before? Any advice you can give me?
Anyway, sorry, once again I have managed to ramble on! Don’t know why you let me do this, I must bore you to death with my ramblings (feel free to disagree). I decided to trial a theme for a few days of the week, ie Wishful Wednesday. I have decided to write a “wish list” of things I want to see or do over the next lot of months and hopefully you’ll be with me when I can tick these off!
Today’s Wishful Wednesday:

  • See Les Misérables live on stage, either on the West End or Broadway.

I’m sure over the last few months I have mentioned at least once my love for Les Misérables. The music, the story, everything about it makes me feel that warm tingly feeling course through my spine. I can’t watch it without crying at least once. Now, if I get those feelings just listening to the music or watching the film, imagine what it would be like on stage.
What would you put at the start of your wish list? Start big or small? Let me know in the comments below! Or feel free to tell me if you don’t like the idea of themed days, any feedback is welcome!
