May’s Moments of the Month: April // Studying Took Over Everything

I disappeared yet again… what a surprise! 

I can’t say I didn’t expect this to happen, especially since at the beginning of the year I was like, “There are going to be lots of big upcoming life events this year that will make me less active.” But after I planned out my posts months ahead, I was really hopeful that I would be able to maintain some activity throughout the busier parts!

Clearly, that didn’t happen. I would say I’m sorry, but I’m trying not to apologize for doing things that I needed to do. I disappeared because of exams that I had to study for, and doing that sucked up all my energy and I barely did anything substantial throughout the month.

May’s Moments of the Month: March // Finally, Some Relaxation!!

Isn’t it crazy how we’re already going into the first quarter of the year?

Maybe it’s because I have Big Personal Life Things coming up in May, but I feel like the beginning of the year has whizzed by and I can barely catch my breath. And part of the reason March passed by so quickly for me was because—I did nothing!!

Okay, I did do things. I did a lot of things, in fact, like read and labor over school assignments and even WRITE… But I mostly remember March as a month where I mostly got to rest. And thank god for that! I’ve really needed it.

Goodbye 2021: 2021 Goals Check-In & My New Goals for 2022

It’s one of my favorite parts of the new year: seeing how I failed my goals!

Jokes, jokes. I actually really like reflecting on my year, even if I didn’t do as much as I’d hoped to, as well as setting goals for the new year. There’s always something very lovely—and funny—about the undying hope I have for myself and my abilities each year, despite all the failures.

I did not achieve most of my 2021 goals. And I’m okay with it! Of course, I would’ve loved if I had accomplished more, but all of my goals have the same ultimate goal: to make me feel satisfied. And I felt that way in 2021 without these things, which I think is actually quite cool of me. (I still want to achieve my goals though.)

May’s Moments of the Month: December // I Got COVID but Also… I Read a Lot!

Happy new year, everyone!!

2022 feels even less real than every new year, because it means we’ve been dealing with this pandemic for 3 years? No! I refuse to believe it!

To address the elephant in the room: I completed my isolation for COVID and am almost completely asymptomatic, and I recovered really well! Thank you all for your well wishes, it means a lot. I hope you all remain healthy in 2022!!

Despite the whole catching COVID thing, and finals hell week, December was a strangely good month for me. Honestly I think isolation did something to me, maybe because since I had nothing to do, I ended up doing things that made me happy!

Goodbye 2021: My Favorite Moments of the Year

Welcome to the start of my silly end of year traditions!

You all know I love end of year posts and carrying on “traditions” on this blog, so as always, we’re kicking off my “Goodbye” series with my favorite moments of 2021. And as I always say, I can’t believe we’re here at the end of the year. I know last year I was hoping (but doubtful) that things might be different in terms of the pandemic, and it sucks that they aren’t. But there were some pockets of happiness I was able to find in 2021, which I’m forever glad for!

Speaking of the pandemic: I have COVID! This is certainly NOT a favorite moment of the year… but luckily I’ve been experiencing only mild symptoms (and hopefully it’ll stay that way). I’m going to pretend that my tiredness from COVID is the reason why this post is short, and not because I couldn’t come up with any more favorite moments :p
