weekly happenings

  • I went home!! My mom and I have been planning for months to surprise my dad for his birthday which was last week with a visit from me, and I finally got to go home! I was really happy to get a vacation and also see my dad’s reaction because he was so shocked. I did a good job of keeping a secret all these months and it really paid off. I was glad I got to do something nice for my dad and also honestly it made me feel a lot better to come home and see that people were excited to see me.
  • I celebrated my birthday yesterday. I am now 26 wooo so elderly. I’ve been depressed about my birthday for the past couple of weeks because I thought I’d just be sad because I’m not really friends with most of the people I celebrated with last year, but going home was a major pick me up for my mental health state and I ended up enjoying myself and not thinking about it nearly as much as I anticipated.
  • Taylor Swift’s new album came out!!!!!! I have been equally excited about LOVER coming out as I have been about going home, plus it came out the day before my birthday so I felt like it was just for me even though I know that’s a little silly. I am a HUGE Tay Swift fan and I was not disappointed. Side note: I am sorry, but she did not write “Lover” about a man. Especially after the bi flag hair in “You Need to Calm Down.” Just…girl ain’t straight.

books read

This is another instance of “books DNF’ed” for the week because I’m apparently on a DNF kick. I did enjoy this one a bit, but honestly I just wasn’t feeling the anticipated romance because I just am not interested in white hetero romances anymore?? Is that fair?? I feel like it’s fair. It was funny and gave me Buffy vibes, but the pacing was a bit off, like both too slow and too fast, and I really did not need a detailed description of whatever outfit Esme and Janis wore every day. I might come back to this one but honestly I was just too disappointed that Esme and Cassandra weren’t in love to keep reading.

 

currently reading

I’m giving two books a try. I’m not sure if I’m in the mood to continue NINTH HOUSE; it feels more like a fall book to me and I’m not really in the mood for something long. I’m also giving WICKED SAINTS another try even though I hated it? Don’t ask me why because I don’t know.

  1. Ahhh happy belated birthday! I’m so happy you got to go home and that your surprise to your dad was a success, yay 😀
    I hope you will have a lovely week <3

  2. Glad to hear that you could go home and the surprise for your dad turned out to be so nice! 🙂 I hope you managed to treat yourself a bit for your birthday 🍰 Keeping my fingers crossed that you’ll get some blog post inspirations, if not it’s always okay to post some wrapups/goals a bit early 💕

      I definitely did treat myself, so that was very nice also. And thank you; I think I will probably end up doing my wrap up posts early this time again because I just have no ideas at the moment (or motivation to post since I’m on vacation, lol)
