Wrap Up – January 2016

And just like that, January is over! This month was a good start for me, despite being pretty hectic. Some real ups and downs– I’m really exhausted and just want to get back to reading. I got into the course that I really wanted, and have set about finding work placement to fit with the subject requirements. The weather in Melbourne has also been really up and down. We’ve had days as hot as 43 (109 F) degrees and cold as 17 (62 F), with wind, rain, thunder and everything else you can imagine in between (except for snow?).

Reading wise, I read a lot more than I expected I would! I’m hoping to take a big chunk out of my reading challenge in the first couple of months of the year, in case things get hectic with my course (which they probably will). This month I read a total of TEN books. :)
