So I know I didn’t really read in September and it’s tragic. But guys, seriously, life is so so so so great. Without further ado:
Okay, so, the start of school has been incredible, and I feel like I might just be saying that every month. And that is a shocker. I am loving all of my classes and just… nailing it.
I’ve also been feeling a lot like I’ve improved in my own self presentation and confidence. I sort of did a 2 am thread about it, but I also just want to celebrate here:
I feel like I’m just so more involved with friends right now, and with my life in general. And with my better mental health, I’m finally feeling really good about school; I just got two 96s on tests last week! But it’s not just about the numbers, it’s about the fact that I’m enjoying my classes (despite how challenging they often are).
I have been keeping up with the stuff I got done via twitter! I have a new meme called my productivity thread; you can find all of them here.
- Finish Sense8.❌ [yikes]
- Finish The Good Place.✅ [YES]
- Be done with 9/12 of supplementals!!✅ [HELL YEAH DAMN RIGHT MY ED APPLICATION? DONE. PERFECTED. SOUNDS SO MUCH LIKE ME. I’M CRYING]
Something I didn’t put on here was to hang out with people a lot, but that has actually been happening and I’m so proud and happy!!
—Next Month’s Goals—
- Complete my readathon.✅ [I ALREADY DID THIS.]
- Finish all my college applications.❌
- Continue focusing on the clubs I run [this has been going great so far we love!!]❌
- Get back into reading with five books a week!!❌
- Catch up on The Good Place.❌
- Be on Twitter less?❌
I’m really, really loving two songs off Halcyon by Ellie Goulding, Ritual and Only You. No Roots by Alice Merton is my new and current fave song; Sanctify by Years and Years could take my entire life and I’d be okay with it. (These were too sexy and yes, I need to finish listening to Palo Santo.) But my absolute favorite music part of this life has been Banks’ The Altar.
Can you believe I’d never really gotten into this album? I’d downloaded it because I liked her song Beggin For Thread, and then listened to none of these except Trainwreck. But THIS ALBUM GOES OFF. Lovesick is fantastic, Fuck With Myself is a lowkey bop, 27 Hours has those gorgeous riffs, and Mind Games is just… indescribable. My absolute favorite, though, is Gemini Feed. You cannot possibly understand how much I listened to this song in this one month. It’s such a beat but also, the lyrics are everything. That is all.
—TV Shows I Watched—
hiatus: Community, Queer Eye, Black Sails, Sense8
The Good Place, season 2 (2016-ongoing) | ★★★★★
Holy shirt, this show is funny. It follows a woman sent to The Good Place [basically heaven] after she dies, and then realizing she totally does not belong. I just finished the recently-on-Netflix season two! And then haven’t caught up again.
How were your months? Any tv shows or movies on here you’ve seen? Any thoughts or favorites? Any goals you achieved? Let me know in the comments!
