This and That and The Other

It's a bit strange not to 'have' to post everyday.

There are a few things I wanted to talk about: This and That and The Other.

This:
I've loved having so many comments! Do you ever go back and check posts you've commented on, to see if you've had a reply? I do. Obsessively. Some of you have written comments on my posts that I just had to reply to - feel free to see how VEHEMENTLY I disagree with you all! haha

That:
I find that I tend to judge movies differently to other people. In a nutshell, this is how I sum up whether or not I like them: "did I enjoy it?" 
Deep, I know ;)
Movies are something I watch when I relax. Because of this, I make a conscious to 'turn off' the critical side of my brain. I do enough thinking already with uni work! Also, I am the sort of person who actively looks for what I like about things, rather than what I don't like. It's become a bit of a habit, and now I don't realise how much I do it.

The Other:
NaNoWriMo.
I've done it once. I didn't reach 50K. More like 25K.
It's hard work.
It's exhausting.
It's full on.
I'm planning on doing it again this year, but trying to reach 50K this time!
Why?
Because it's creative.
It's challenging.
It's fun. 
It's rewarding.
If you're considering taking part, I really encourage you to give it a go.
