Cate’s Cock-Up

This is a new feature I’ve decided to put on the blog. To be completely honest, I think I’ve already messed up by naming this Cate’s Cock-Up. Nevertheless, this is the title I’m sticking with. (It was the only one I could think of that was alliterate.) Every month or so, I’m going to be talking about I time when I messed up. All will be relating to books, reading or something along those lines.

So, with that being said, let’s go!

Cate’s Catch-up

If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t posted ANYTHING in about three weeks. Now, I’m not making excuses (well, I sort of am) but I’d just like the explain the reasons for my unexplained absence.

  1. I got a job

So, it began with me heading for an interview. It was on a Wednesday and Wednesday is the day for Thursday to as far into the next week as I can get. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any posts written.

2. My phone broke

This is not that big of a deal in that it prohibited me from blogging but I spent so much time trying to get all of the drama relating it sorted out that I didn’t have time for blogging.

3. I had exams

It was the last week of school and I unfortunately had exams. They took up a lot of my time. But, hey, I passed my computing exam with 97% so I’m happy about that. I would like to thank my need to write for this otherwise I wouldn’t have known as many of the functions on Microsoft Word as I did.

4. I was away for a two day hike

I didn’t have my laptop, time nor internet to write any blog posts. We spend about 4 hours (excluding rest time) hiking up the side of a mountain in one day. It was 20K. Then we did another 5K the next day.

5. For once in my life, I was busy doing things with friends

My friends and I don’t do that many things outside of school together so it was really strange to spend so much time together outside of school over the past two weeks.

I went shopping (which I hate doing) one day with one friend. Together, we actually bought quite a lot.

She also came over to my house one of the days, I went out on a night out one of the days (waste of time and money) with that same friend and another friend. She also stayed over in my house and we spent that next day fangirling over cartoon fictional relationships, such as that of Belle and Beast.

I went to see the new Jungle Book movie. It was quite good. A little long in my opinion though. Have any of you seen it?

I also (just yesterday) went to see Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. It was great- I plan on discussing it in another posts.

I also read Me Before You, My Favourite Manson Girl by Alison Umminger and half of Consumed by Abbi Rushton. (Review for MFMG to be posted soon.)

I went to a concert also- The Amity Affliction. To be honest, I expected more from it but it doesn’t matter. The tickets were not that expensive and overall I had fun.

And, my last and final excuse reason:

6. My internet stopped working
