So it’s been almost a month since I last updated, yikes! After quitting my job at Chapters last month, I thought things would be nice and slow and relaxing, but they definitely haven’t been!
So what have I been up to this past month, other than wedding planning? Lots!
I’ve been listening to the new Taylor Swift album pretty much on repeat. And when that wasn’t enough, I went out and bought the physical album because it was that awesome (don’t judge me). The last time I bought a physical CD was back in high school and it was Hilary Duff. -_- It’s such a fun CD to listen to, and totally takes me mind off wedding jitters (who needs nerves when you’re jamming to Blank Space?!)
I also got back into reading! In my last few days of work I bought a few books and in my attempts to start reading more ‘adult fiction’, the first title I selected was Bone Season. It’s too bad that it didn’t end up being the best book, but it did get back into reading! It started off strong, but I lost interest pretty early on. There was just way too much to keep track of and I had to force myself to finish it by the last third. But I’m glad I’m done, because I can finally start to tackle some of the books that have been on my shelves for months. Some examples include: Alif the Unseen, The Name of the Wind, Cress, and Longbourn. What should I read next?
I also finished marathoning Gossip Girl. Again, don’t judge me! I started it merely out of curiosity more than a month ago and it was so addictive, I kept going! There were so many things wrong with it, so it was more of a guilty pleasure than anything else.
But what I spent the bulk of the month doing was preparing for a pre-wedding reception that my parents threw for me just last week. I had a vision for the party and tried to organize it the best I could to make it happen. There were a few setbacks, like my dress not fitting properly and the banquet hall screwing up with some of the decor, but alhamdulilah it went well for the most part. There were some emotional speeches and moments, and it all just made me realise how lucky I truly am.
Anyways, now my sole focus is on wedding planning. I’m hoping I can update both my blogs a little more, start skipping again, and get back to eating healthy. Those are my goals for this month…what are yours? Hope you all had a good November
Thanks for reading,
