Holidays in January (2019 Calendar)

Welcome everybody to the new year. I took a break for the last month so so preparing content for you guys for this year. Last year I did my best to get you two pieces a week, and this year I going to step it up a bit to three. Disclaimer as always: I am a student at university. My school work comes first. That being said, it is the first day of the month, which means that we have an entire month on holidays to talk about. I know I didn’t do one for December, but all of my professors got together and we’re talking about how to make me miserable. I swear. Off of that topic, January is National Soup and Oatmeal Month, so make sure to stock up on hot meals. It is also National Hobby month, so it’s the perfect time to either discover a new hobby or finally invest the time into something that you have been pushing off.

The Wall Between Us

As the new addition in the genre of “cute girls doing not so cute girl things,” there is Princess Principal. It’s a historical-ish drama taking place in what could be an alternate Berlin Wall situation taking place in England. The country has been torn apart into a monarchy and a commonwealth. There to make sure the country as a whole does not get overrun by those that what to ruin in are a group of young spies. They are all amazing, well written, and have great chemistry with one another. The story, for the most part, is told out of order, but one can get the gist and see how much they care about one another. It’s a great show that needs a sequel. I NEED to know what happens next. There was such a huge cliffhanger.
