This post is an opportunity to recap the past week on my blog and in my personal life. It’s also a chance to set up some goals for the upcoming week and share the music/films/TV shows/podcasts that I’ve loved this week.
I returned to the office for a couple of days and promptly remembered why I prefer working from home! My desk is a PhD space, where PhD students are supposed to be working on their research, but a group of first-year PhD students have moved in to the workspace and all they do is talk. About things I really, really don’t want to hear about. I’ve asked them to be quiet a couple of times because I can hear them over loud music and noise-cancelling headphones but will not shut up.
After the disaster of returning to the office, I decided to treat myself by going to IKEA. I’m in the middle of cleaning out my bedroom so that I can decorate it in the spring and I went to IKEA for inspiration. I’m going to have a feature wall but I can’t decide between blush/millennial pink and sage green. I do know that my room will be filled with plants because I love them. Plants and books. I came home from IKEA with a teapot and a new cactus so I’m counting that as a success.

Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie – It took me longer to finish this than I expected because this week has been hectic! I didn’t have time to read much so I didn’t pick this up for an entire week. Oops. I did really enjoy it though.
We’ve Done Something Wonderful by Epik High – This isn’t a new album, it’s from 2017, but I’ve listened to it non-stop this week. I love every single song but my favourites are People Scare Me and No Thanxxx. Here Come the Regrets is amazing too. I love Epik High and if they’re not in my top 5 Spotify artists of 2020 then I’m going to be disappointed with myself.
回: Labyrinth by GFriend – I’ve potentially found another K-Pop girl group that I love! This style of music isn’t what I’d usually listen to but I watched the MV for Crossroads (which is amazing, by the way) since it popped up on my recommended and I really fell in love with it. I listened to the rest of the EP and I loved every single song. My favourites were Labyrinth and Dreamcatcher.
Also, the music video for Crossroads is absolutely beautiful. Do I understand the storyline yet? No. But I will.
- Finish one book
