December Wrap-Up

It’s the end of the year!!!! A year-end wrap-up is coming, but December first.

December was weird for me because I really only read what I wanted to? And I had a brief but intense mountaineering fixation, so, uh…

books

I read 7 books this month. Four were mountaineering books. Oops.

  • I went to Las Vegas with my family for Christmas, which was weird, but it was fun! It was my fifth time going, but my first time over 21, so I got to gamble and drink a bit and do all the Adult Stuff I never got to do before. We also went to some state parks outside the city, and that was definitely my favourite part; I adore the desert.
  • I’ve also been skiing a couple of times this month which was surprisingly good; there’s been a lot of good snow recently.
  • Has anyone else played Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey? I’m playing it right now and it is so good. It’s making me want to reread The Song of Achilles and Percy Jackson.

  1. Ah happy you enjoyed your time in Las Vegas and got to experience the casinos !! We have one in our town, and I gotta say in the 5years of being over 19.. I still haven’t went gambling yet 😂😂 My parents went one time and mom was SO dissapointed to have lost that five dollar ahahah — Las Vegas must be really impressive on that font though!

    Ohh late to the party is one i’ve been wanting to read ✨
    I also love how « un-inspired » they named the everests books 😅

    1. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever gambled more than ten bucks in the years I’ve been able to gamble! I don’t see the point–I know I’m gonna lose the money, so why bother when I can buy something with it like books? I don’t mind losing a bit for The Experience, though.

      And Late to the Party is SOOO good, I loved it a lot!

      1. Yeps, I agree with you !
        People can be quite crazy about it though! Mom reported that people were legit peeing ON THE STOOLS to not lose their place… yikes.
