May Wrap Up

Life

  • I've hardly blogged this month because I've been so damn busy. But I haven't seen many stand-out posts from other bloggers either, so I guess it's been a quiet month for some of us.
  • Back to uni for the second half of semester. Man, it's been exhausting. So. Many. Assignments. I have my last lecture tomorrow, my last essay due the day after, and then it's exams. Help Yay!
  • I visited my grandparents for the first time in a long while.

April Wrap Up

  

Life

  • Midsemester break happened. It was very much needed.
  • This month I have: done assignments, read, blogged, watched TV and movies, and baked.
  • It's been a great blogging month - I posted lots, and I also read many fantastic posts from other bloggers. 
  • In exciting news, I've read more books so far this year than I read in the whole of last year!

Since I've Been Gone: January & February Wrap Up


I'm back from hiatus! But with uni starting again this week, I don't expect I'll be blogging very frequently as I have lots of other things to do. In the meantime, what happened while I was gone?

  

Life

  • I've been learning to drive! So far so good with the automatic, need lots of practice with the manual. And then we'll have to see about parking...
  • I had a summer job and saved a bit of money, yay! Now I'm back home I have to keep looking for part-time jobs, though...
  • My holiday was generally pretty great, and I felt completely on top of things, like I'd got my shit together after two years of not being very motivated, and it felt good.
