Summer ’17 Reading List


If you like reading, then good for you. If you don’t, well then I don’t like you good for you too. If you guys didn’t already know, I’m in love with books. Books never fail to make me feel better or to satisfy my need for exploration and adventure. I’ve been reading since a little before I turned 4; I read books that were way more advanced for my age. I was always the kid that had her nose stuck in a book (and I believe I still am that person). As a kid in elementary school, I would spend every free moment in the library. And bear in mind, our school library was huge. Or at least to 8 year old me it was. Sometimes I’d read the same books all over, yet each time felt like a completely different journey. I love reading so much, but lately, I haven’t read as much as I used to. So to make up for all those missed hours, I’m going to read all summer long. How amazing does that sound? Here’s my reading list for this summer. Continue reading

Would you change the past?

I’m sure everyone has been asked this question at least once if not more, and they’ve all answered it differently. Would you change the past if you could? Well, this is my answer. Continue reading

April

Hey you guys! It’s been a while, I know. I have been busy recently and I will be for a while, perhaps the next two months, so bear with me if I don’t post often. 

Studies aren’t exactly on my side, and I have just the month of April to change that. Just a fair warning that I’ll be a inactive most of this month and the next because exams, yaay. But on the brighter side of things, I do have (kinda yet not so) big plans for after my exams are over. For the blog of course. Anyways. Here’s a pretty picture (at least to me) cuz whyy nottt.

Strangers

Hey, you guys. This post was very spontaneous and unplanned, but anyways. This is kinda like a “thank you” post? Well, not exactly but still. There are a few things that need to be said and put out there, so here goes nothing.

First, I want to thank everyone who broke me in the past, because they’ve made be stronger. So shoutout to you guys. Okay, guys honestly, I have so much to say but I really don’t know how to put it into words. I might not even post this but eh.

There have been loaaaaads of people who have come into my life, but only a few have stayed. Those few people mean so much to me, and I love them to pieces. And the rest of them? They’re irrelevant. Sure we had had good times, but that’s where it ends. Those people were toxic, they made me question my own sanity. Also, most of them left in the midst of amazing friendships. I waited so long for answers, but let me tell you a thing. It’s pointless. Don’t waste your time, take my word for it. Don’t go looking for answers, don’t go wishing you could turn back time. It’s malarkey.

But despite all the darkness, if we hadn’t crossed paths, I wouldn’t have grown as a person and I wouldn’t be where I am now. Everything happens for a reason, right? I believe in that so strongly. I’m really happy with how far I’ve come, and I’m so grateful to have amazing people by my side. A piece of advice? Don’t waste your time on stuff that won’t matter as time passes. Instead, take that time that you would waste sulking, and put it into doing you. Look after yourself and your health. Love yourself, and alwaysss put yourself before anything else. Nothing else really matters, trust me.

I would once give everything for those peeps, but now I’m really thankful that they are no longer in my life. We’re better off as strangers. I wish them well.

Travel bucket list – The Wanderlust Series

If you’ve seen my previous posts, I’m sure you can tell that I love traveling. If you haven’t, well, now you know. I mean honestly who wouldn’t enjoy travel? It’s so therapeutic and relaxing.  Today I decided to share my travel bucket list (that I just made cuz why not) with you guys. And also, since I just made this like 2 days ago, it’s kinda incomplete. I’ll do an update on it later on. Let’s just hope I don’t get lazy and completely forget about it.

Also random thought/fact: I’m the type of person that has speech typos. I make ‘typos’ while speaking. Like, speakos. I’m sorry (only like 5%), ignore this and carry on.

Nostalgia

There are certain moments – or people – in your life that just bring you this unexplainable happiness. There are also those songs that you were listening to during said moments, and so every time you hear it again it fills you with pure joy and a whole bunch of other emotions. It’s a lovely feeling, but it’s also quite overwhelming. Why? Well, I can’t really say for everyone, but personally, I think it’s because of the mixture of feelings. I feel this really strong urge to be back in that particular situation, and it just overwhelms me. Like nostalgia maybe. But otherwise, it’s an amazing feeling, looking back. I mean, when you’re in the moment, whether it be with people you love or just you alone, you just enjoy it. You’re not thinking about how you’d feel looking back. Even if it’s me alone, in cute sweats or a onesie (or with pizza and my jakey – or even just binge watching my fave tv series, you know what I mean?) Those are my favorite moments. That’s what I love about making memories, the “remember when…”s. I was actually listening to a couple songs while writing this, it’s why I actually got the motivation I needed to write. The songs that made me think about the memories I’ve made with the people I hold so close to my heart. Thank you to everyone who has helped me create amaaaaaazing memories, I love you guys.
