November is almost at an end now, and my goodness this last month has flown by. I am conscious that this has been my worst month of blogging to date, for which I can only apologise. November was far from an easy month, as I did have a family funeral, which meant that I was away for several days, and did not have my laptop with me during that time. No, I will not do blog posts on my phone – I do not trust auto correct enough to do so.
As well as this, the workload at university increased this month with assignments, so blogging was not my priority. Nevertheless, I managed to get some cinema trips in, and as such reviews were published, including my review of Suburbicon, which served as Post 200 on this blog! Two hundred posts later, and I am still absolutely loving blogging here.
December is also going to be a busy month, with all things Christmas. As well as that I have about 10,000 words worth of assignments to do during the Christmas holidays, so free time will be scarcer than usual. I do, however, have cinema trips lined up for December. These include: The Disaster Artist, The Man who Invented Christmas, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Wonder, The Greatest Showman, Pitch Perfect 3 and, of course, Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.
I am incredibly excited for several of these releases, and I will endeavour to get reviews of these films published, as well as some other reviews. In the ‘other reviews’ department, I will be getting some Christmas films reviewed, as well as some literature (namely A Christmas Carol) and some television.
Most importantly, however, I will be attending or helping out with a lot of the Christmas celebrations at Dundonald Church, Raynes Park. As a Christian, I firmly believe that the most important thing about this time of year is to remember the Christ of Christmas, to celebrate the fact that some 2000 years ago God took on flesh and came to Earth, in order to make it possible for us to have eternal life with him. Dundonald is part of the wider Co-Mission network in London, and forget the John Lewis Christmas advert, here is one that they made, and it is outstanding.
A fantastic advert, which reminds us of the reason for the season. So, you probably now have the gist of what my festive season will look like. University work, cinema trips, but most importantly church. For the month ahead, I wish you a happy December, and in case I do not post anything on Christmas Day itself then I wish you all a Happy Christmas.
And for visits to this blog in the next month, I as ever wish you all Happy Reading!
