Well, the last month of the year has just begun. It’s time to review the year and see what you have learned. It doesn’t matter how your year was, it’s a good time to be a kid and bring happiness and joy to the people that surround you. I’m a believer that more happiness you give, the more you get, so with that thought in mind let’s spread the good vibe and the Christmas spirit.
Book of the month: Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert
Series of the month: I will be watching the Spanish series: “El barco”. The series combines elements of drama, mystery and action — a formula that was very popular between 2007 and 2010. Have you ever heard about it? What are you planning to look at this month?
