Hello my loves!
I feel like I haven’t sat down and written a chatty post for a while now…but I have missed it. The truth is, I’ve been so busy lately I just haven’t had the chance to sit down and talk, which is why I’ve been uploading hauls left right and centre instead (it will stop soon, I promise).
First of all, how are you? Like really, how are you all doing. Tell me everything. As for me, I’ve been busy and content lately, which is a very nice feeling. Everything is going plain sailing (*touch wood*) at the moment and I used to think that maybe that was a little…boring? I thought we were supposed to have spontaneity and excitement in our lives at every twist and turn but actually, that just gives me a whole load of unnecessary anxiety that I don’t wish to have and therefore, I’m very content with just quietly sailing along calm waters, as cringey as that may sound. Everything seems to be going well at the moment – my job, the blog, uni etc. I always get so nervous when I submit an essay and my tutor marks it because I really want to do well, but the feeling I get when I receive it back and get good marks is so !! nice !!
And I don’t mean that in an arrogant way at all, it’s just so…satisfying? To put a lot of work and effort into something and to have it recognised, I also really like receiving feedback on my writing too because I’m always looking to improve and so overall in that aspect, I’ve been feeling very proud of myself! I’m looking to get a bunch of uni stuff out of the way this weekend and spend the rest of the time working on blog posts and other personal projects that I need to catch up on, so hopefully I’ll manage to be super productive.
What else…I got back into reading after a few weeks of not having enough time to do it – I was going through a phrase where I was whizzing through books left, right and centre and absolutely loving it, but then I started to get crazy busy again and reading unfortunately had to take a backseat which I was bummed about, but you can’t have everything! It feels like there’s simply just not enough hours in the day sometimes which I feel makes me sound really old but…it’s true. Am I 22 or 220. No one knows. Anyway, I’ve now gotten back into a routine and one of the books I’m currently reading is the first in the Harry Potter series…I am incredibly late to the party but I’ve never had the slightest bit of interest in Harry Potter but I felt like it was one of those things I needed to check off my reading list just to say I’d read it, you know? So that’s happening right now. It won’t take me long to finish so review coming shortly!
I’m also going to Mexico in a few months which I haven’t mentioned yet but I’m suuuper excited about it, like super, super, super excited. I really can’t wait to just lie in the sun, read some good books, eat my body weight in food and spend time with my family – I think there’s 12 of us going and it’s just going to be so nice to spend time together and just, ah. I’m so excited !! I’m also super excited for all of the blog posts I’m going to do surrounding it as well (and definitely be prepared for a photo diary). I feel like I get most inspired to write when I’m surrounded by light or I’m in the sun, and it’s been dark here for literally 6 months now so I can’t wait to just take my journal and feel creative again and hopefully write some really beautiful things. My favourite pieces of writing are usually things I’ve written in Summer when it’s warm and light and I feel all dreamy – I feel like my writing then reflects that too.
Anyway, am I rambling? Yes, yes I am, but what’s new. I also started watching my second anime a few days ago and I’m loving it !! Blog post on that coming soon too hehe. Look out for it!
Also (take a shot every time I use the word ‘also’ in this post – I need to use some different adverbs). I think I said this last time too but a huge hello to all of the new people who have joined this little space recently – welcome !! It’s always so lovely seeing new faces and I hope you enjoy your stay here and of course, a big thank you to everyone who has been around for a long time, too. You’re all my favourite people ever ever ever.
All my love,
