My November ’15 Recap

~My Life~

  • Well, Thanksgiving went well! It was just me and my family at home.
  • I was rejected by jobs. 😦
  • BEA plans were finalized with Shannon, Holly and Val! Yay. ❤

My month did not consist with much at all. 

I’m doing a giveaway on Twitter for How To Be Brave by E. Katherine Kottaras, it ends in one week.

My How To Get Away With Murder recap. 🙂


~How Did I  Do With My Resolutions?~

~How Did I Do With My Challenges?~

Still no progress made on either fronts. 😦 I’ll know better for the coming year now though.


~What I Listened To~

Here is my November playlist of music I listened to. 

Favorite Songs: It’s All In Vain by Wet, I Don’t Wanna See You With Her by Maria Mena, Secret Love Song Pt. 1 and 2 by Little Mix, Hello by Adele, Hell No’s and Headphones by Hailee Steinfeld, Seventeen by Alessia Care, One Step Ahead by A Great Big World. and Open Your Eyes by School of Seven Bells.

All of those songs can be found on my Spotify.

From Adele’s album, that I liked a lot, I loved When We Were Young, Million Years Ago and All I Ask, of course, it’s not on Spotify. Sigh.

I went through a lot of weird music phases this month, I listened to old love songs and then this past week I’ve gone all “I MUST RELIVE MY HIGH SCHOOL YEARS THROUGH MUSIC”, so it’s been kind of fun trying to find everything I listened to back then.

Here are my favorites: Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco (AFYCSO), and Taking Back Sunday.


~Favorite Album~

I adored Hailee Steinfeld’s Haiz EP and Alessia Cara’s debut album, Here. I also listened to Troye Sivan and Allie X a ton! I’m still waiting for Troye Sivan’s album to drop any hour now. 😦

Wait, no! My favorite, favorite album was Art Angels by Grimes! It was very unexpected too, but I love ittt.


~Album I Wish Had Gotten More Love~

All of them, really. Except my favorites. But even then, them too. 😉

I just did not listen to Sara’s new album all that much this month. I did like it though! I’ll have to listen to it a lot more in the coming weeks.

I never listened to Enya’s Dark Sky Island or Sarah Blasko’s Eternal Return. Oops. I listened to When Morning Comes which I liked pretty well.

I want to check out The Vamps and We The Kings new albums that came out that I missed.


~Musical News~

Les Miserables will be closing on Broadway this September. 😦 I guess I won’t be seeing it on Broadway. *sighs* But there are dreams that cannot be. Too bad BEA’s not in NYC next year…


~Fantastic Videos~

~Music Purchases~

Alessia Cara Know It All Ellie_Goulding_DeliriumDemi Lovato Confident Selena Gomez RevivalTaylor Swift 1989Florence and The Machine How Big How Blue How Beautiful

Know It All is the digital deluxe edition, all others are regular. 😦 Though Revival is the ‘limited’ edition cover. Best Buy was having this amazing sale so I got all the others for 5.99 each. ❤
I also bought all the songs from Hailee Steinfeld’s Haiz EP except for “Love Myself”, because I didn’t have enough money for that one. 😦 And I figured I’d buy songs I hadn’t heard. 

 

~What I’ve Been Watching~

I binge watched How To Get Away With Murder in two days. I loved it! Mostly. 🙂 I can’t wait for it to come back in February.

I also finally finished watching that Halloween episode of Buffy (two months later…) along with a second episode. I started a third but turned it off because I could not deal with a miscommunication plot again.


Let me know how your month went, what your favorite songs were, what you watched, what you did and everything else. 🙂

    You did not read ANY books!??! That is because you have been obsessed with ALL the music 😉 Read Air Awakens, it shall help 😀 Also, I want The Serpent King. Approve me, book gods.

    Also, I am SO glad that we bought the deluxe tent for BEA. It comes with a padlock, so muggers will have to use weapons to break in! Olé!
