Getting Cosy: My Plans this Autumn

Posted October 14, 2019 by Fictional Fox in Personal / 0 Comments

Today I’m going over what I want to do this Autumn. I find rereads and re-watches are the perfect solution for counteracting the chill of Autumn, so those activities take centre stage. Basically, it’s time to wheel out my favourite ways to get cosy!

Movie Marathons

I really want to re-watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also want to rewatch a few Ghibli films, especially Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle and The Cat Returns.

Finally, I want to have a Disney movie marathon. I want to watch some of the animated classics like Robin Hood. I’ve been watching a lot of live-action ones lately so it would be nice to go back and check out the originals again.

Reread Favourite Novels

Top of this list is The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling, Charmed Life and Conrad’s Fate by Diana Wynne Jones, and Kings Rising by C.S. Pacat.

Each of these are comfort reads that remind me of different times in my life. I know them inside out but I never get tired of reading them.

Manga Readathon

I would love to reread all of the Ouran High School Host Club volumes (and rewatch the anime). I don’t think I’ve ever read them all straight through, there’s always been a time lapse between picking up each volume. I’d like to experience it as a unified story from start to finish.

Light All The Candles

Dark evenings + scented candles = my happy place πŸ’™. Chuck in a bean bag chair to snuggle in with a good book and I honestly could not ask for more.

Write, Write, Write

I am planning on getting a lot of writing done this season. From Blogtober to NaNoWriMo (and beyond), I have a full schedule of writing projects to get through. I’m so excited to dedicate some time to being more creative.

Have Fun With The Sims 4

I am so addicted to Sims at the moment. I play it every evening. At the moment I’m building a Harry Potter inspired house that is so cute so far. And I love my little Sims families so much πŸ’œ

Here I have my latest family surrounded by Ghibli posters, with a phoenix familiar, string lights, and books strewn everywhere. Heaven.

Spend Lots of Time With My Dog

Of course, I am going to have lots of autumnal adventures with my pup. that kinda goes without saying!

What are you planning to do this autumn?
