Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!

how is june almost upon us?? wHAT HAPPENED TO APRIL AND MARCH AND FEBRUARY??

i vaguely remember a ‘may’ shaped month passing by but i can’t be sure?? WASN’T IT JANUARY YESTERDAY?? #cueexistentialcrisis
i seriously want to rewind and go back to february 😪 i did not utilize that month properly.
let’s all collectively agree to destroy the concept of time because it’s clearly doing us no good, lol.

five very important things happened to me in may
(1) i went and travelled to a very secret place [spoiler alert: it had snow] and *surprise* *surprise* it was an absolute blast!!
(2) i kicked procrastination and!! responded to comments!! pls let’s ignore the fact that i’m a month late
(3) sTRANGER THINGS SEASON FOUR VOLUME 1
(4) i discovered the pure joy of cold cocoa. i take back everything about hot chocolate being the world’s greatest invention and am giving that spot to cold cocoa. it literally restores your life back to you kdsjfghs
(5) i’m just,,,,casually obsessing over three books and they’ve taken over my absolute EXISTENCE

What Happened in April? || ft summer! mangoes!! & [writing] 3 books in a month [SOMEONE RESTRAIN ME MAYBE??]

Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!

I FEEL LIKE ALL MY MONTHLY RECAPS SOUND SOMETHING LIKE:

“hi guys, this month i read more books than i had time for, procrastinated l.i.f.e. died because of stress & was resurrected because of my need to write- which i never seem to do! also i’m dying internally and need to sleep for 657346 years but anyways! how’s everyone?”
-me at any given point

ANYWAYS this month was simultaneously exciting and exhausting.
summer break started for me, a week ago and you all know how i’m going to spend it 🙌🏽 read. write. plan world domination. and 6am cycling- it is magical!
i’m down with flu- literally surviving on turmeric milk which isn’t ideal 👀but on the bright side i have been rewatching BBC’s ‘merlin’!! i adore that show so much, the friendship between merlin and arthur is truly everything!! and their bANTER IS WHAT I LIVE FOR OK??

in my march wrap up i mentioned my writing plans for april 2022. my exact words were ” i’m counting on april for writing a new draft 🙌 not brand new 👀 -i haven’t written a first draft since before the pandemic- but a rewrite of my (first) complete book!” and oh boy, i am laughing softly to myself because i did rewrite that book and… wrote two more brand new drafts. yes that’s three books total no you did not misread that and yes i need h.e.l.p.

What Happened in March?|| ft being DEAD in the bookish community + 3 books in a day [!!?] and a month i don’t remember passing by

Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!

THE TITLE OF THIS POST IS PRETTYY MUCH WHAT HAPPENED IN MARCH-A MONTH I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER PASSING BY…

i only have three things to say. (1) WHEN did this month get over?? (2) i want a refund of the 20 days of my life 😭 (3) what in the hellish hell was this month?? LITERALLY. my thoughts regarding this month are one gigantic question mark.

this month was only redeemed by the last ten days, lol. march’s always feel like hazy nightmares, half forgotten memories tangled together…. this one was no different. if i could summarize it in five words it would be: BOOKS//stress// WRITING IDEAS//stressss
also bloggy slumps 😔a terrible blogging slump! i’m still not out of it, incase you’re wondering… *sigh*


but READING! let’s talk about my reading because w o w i am so delighted with my reading! i read thirteen books -fifteen if you’re counting secrets of blackthorn hall- and i am ✨gasp✨ satisfied for once! this month was brilliant reading wise, i found so many favourites (!!) as good as dead//the new girl//dial a for aunties//the wicker king//crier’s war duology//the night circus

February wrap up+march tbr and goals//it *finally* feels like 2022 [ft my eyes being scarred, ‘freedom’ and possible murder]

Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!

IS IT WEIRD THAT I FEEL 2022 HAS OFFICIALLY STARTED NOW- IN FEBRUARY, NOT JANUARY.



never do i feel that the year has started in the first month. january always feels like an epilogue, the closure of the previous year, and more so this year. 2021 and 2020 blurred together and this year, this month rather, felt like a fresh breath of air. mainly because real-life school has started and things are resuming once again. 2019 will forever be the “last normal year” in my life though, lol.

….and i am rambling (again)
this month was hyperfixations, one after the another which is surprising because february was exam month. i always end up making time for my hyperfixations though, haha.
i was in a bit of a book hangover (All For the Game) which Winter of the Witch got me out of! also i reread This is How You Lose the Time War and it’s dancing between four and five stars, i loved it even more this time around!! Winter of the Witch and All For the Game stole whatever of my heart they spared though!! I LOVE THOSE TWO BOOKS SO MUCH. i could sob about them forever more on them in my bookish wrap up below and as for now, read them asap i’ll love you forever.

let’s jump onto the february wrap up! grab your blanket and hot cocoa, this is going to be longgg.

Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!

HOW HAS THE FIRST MONTH OF THE NEW YEAR BEEN TREATING ANYONE?

i confess that january felt like an epilogue of 2022. i still can’t grasp that 2021 is OVER. DONE. KHATAM. FINISH. like noo, i don’t want to move on AND GO INTO ANOTHER GRADE NO THAT IS ABSOLUTE TORTURE THE SCHOOL SHUFFLING I SWEAR-

also, finals!!.* and NO MORE STRAWBERRIES WHY. i love strawberries. they’re in my top five fruits with lychee and grapes!! i have no idea how i’m going to survive without my beloved strawberries. they’re my LIFE. THEY’RE THE CURE THEY’RE THE PAIN THEY’RE THE ONLY THING I WANT TO TOUCH EAT**. (besides books. and chocolate. and mint-choco chip ice cream asdfghjkl) truly have no idea how i’m going to survive february. march to june is mangoes (MY LOVE) of course ❤ and uh, monsoon is for cherries, lychees, plums and then winter which is strawberries and thus the cycle continues- ANYWAYS y’all aren’t here for my fruit-love lmao. this is not a blog dedicated to fruits. (sad, very sad. im going to change this….🗡️)
