So yes, technically December is over, which suggests that List-Cember should follow suit. But, alas, I bring you another list.
How could I not though? This one is a tradition! Plus, this will put List-Cember at an even 10 posts, which is incredibly satisfying.
My cousins can vouch for me on this one, this app is AWESOME. It’s a brain training app made up of a bunch of little mini games that test your grammar, math, and writing. Or, you know, the catchier version of that: your reading, writing and arithmetic. Each game gives you a score and then shows you where you rank among the other users, and the hope is, after some practice, you can…elevate your mind…get it? Long story short, it’s essentially the love child of Candy Crush and School House Rock and you should download it immediately.
Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate Hot Chocolate
If you’re a winter wimp like I am, once the temperature drops below 55 degrees it’s officially freezing. And while jackets and blankets can help, there’s nothing quite like a steaming cup of hot chocolate. It doesn’t only warm your hands when you hold it, it also warms your bones as you drink it! This brand has been my favorite over the last two months, the Dark Chocolate holding the biggest piece of my heart, though it also comes in Milk Chocolate, French Vanilla, and Caramel Cream, which are also delicious.
Snickerdoodle Mug Cake
Sticking with the theme of staying warm and satisfying your taste buds, this mug cake is THE BUSINESS. There’s no other way to say it. Well, I mean, besides THE BOMB DOT COM, or the GMCOAT (greatest mug cake of all time), but I digress. You can find the recipe here.
If by chance you’ve seen a girl driving up and down the California highways constantly putting her pinky ring up to the mooooon, it was probably me listening to Bruno Mars’ newest album, 24k Magic. There have been times when I’ve actively had to tell myself to stop listening to it. Not because I didn’t want to hear it, but because I don’t ever want to get sick of it. Thankfully, that seems highly unlikely, if not almost completely impossible at this point.
All things Lauren Graham
It’s kind of impossible not to love Lauren Graham, and this year was resounding proof of that. With the return of Gilmore Girls making me feel all the feels I’ve missed feeling, and the release of her book Talking As Fast As I Can making me smile all the smiles I can’t help but smiling, I’ve gotten a healthy dose of LG and I ain’t complainin’ about it.
Sorry, not sorry on this one. I just had so much fun writing these and I’m genuinely sad they’re over. Good news is, I don’t think this is the last we’ll see of List-cember. Consider this the preview at the end of the credits that kind of hints at something, but for the most part keeps the sequel pretty vague, leaving you with a kind of ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ expression as you leave the theater. So um, you’re welcome.

In case you missed my last post, I’m extremely excited about 2017, for a variety of different reasons, and November and December have acted as somewhat of a curtain slowly opening to its premiere. Here’s hoping it’s the best year yet!
