Hello May. It’s a little crazy that we’re already over a quarter-way through this year. And yes, I think this every year.
This month has been a strange one. The end of last month was a bit tumultuous really. Like very hard. But over the last week I’ve found a new sense of content-ness. Just simple things like going to the gym and eating well have weirdly (or not weirdly at all tbh) made me already feel so much better.
So without further ado, here’s what I’ve been currently coveting and doing this month:
Reading: I really haven’t been doing much reading at the moment. Bar, proofreading and subbing my magazine. I would really love some book recommendations though!
Watching: A lot of YouTube. Namely kids trying food on HiHo Kids by the CUT. I’m not particularly sure why it fascinates me so much. Also been watching the new season of The Handmaid’s Tale. Man is it good. Highly recommend. Also loved Marvel’s Infinity Wars, holy moly.
Listening to: Billie Eilish, Masego, Drake’s “Nice For What” and Childish Gambino’s “This Is America”, and the usual So-Ko jams. “Shine” by Pentagon, anything by SEVENTEEN, BTS’ Japanese album “Face Yourself” and some of Eric Nam’s new songs.
Dreaming of: Being happy and content.
Planning: A trip to Melbourne and later in the year, Japan.
Making: lots more food and trying new recipes which is super exciting. I really do love cooking.
Enjoying: feeling happier and healthier. Now just to keep it up! And being able to wear my (faux) fur coat again now that winter’s approaching – exhibit A being the feature image of this post.
Eating: as healthily as I can. I’ve really been getting that meal-prep down pat, which has been great for not having to cook after coming home from the gym at night.
Goal setting: Nothing in particular apart from perhaps saving money, which is a constant.
Lusting over: Food, as usual.
What have you been loving this month? Would love for you to let me know in the comments below!
