November was the month when all my final assessments for the semester were due so it was hectic to say the least. I did have some pretty great things happen though.

Book

Sarah J Maas
I read Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas, which is the fourth book in the amazing Throne of Glass series. I also was lucky enough to go to one of her events in Sydney. She was so funny, told some great stories and it was a really enjoyable evening. I particularly liked her talking about how she sees Celaena and allows her to grow and change, even if it means moving on from relationships.

Music

Taylor Swift
My best friend and I went to see Taylor Swift. It was amazing. There were so many people, and the atmosphere was amazing. Taylor is such a great performer, it was so much fun, even though we were really far back. 1989 is one of my favourite albums. I'm so glad I went.

Art

I recently read The Princess in Black (which is fabulous) and absolutely love LeUyen Pham's illustrations. She has a wonderful gallery of her work on her website.

Video

Natalie Tran is one of the funniest people on youtube. This video was hilarious, I have a strong dislike of sand so I particularly enjoyed it.

Thought

This excellent conversation between Wil Anderson and Jarrod McKenna was full of lots of interesting and inspiring discussion, with a lot to think through.
