May has been a month. I’m due to submit my PhD thesis at some point today – which is terrifying – and I submitted another project yesterday so I have been doing a lot of academic work over the last month. Since I was working so much, blogging and reading took a back seat. I posted less and I only read three books but hopefully, June will be a better month.
I did manage to get out and about a bit though! I finally visited the city for the first time since the 17th of March 2020. I got some new piercings (second lobe piercings and a rook), did a bit of vintage shopping, went to IKEA, and visited an actual bookshop. I could have cried when I walked into that books shop. I bought 12 books this month and I’m not angry about it. I also visited Leeds, a city just outside of my area, and spent way too much money on jeans.
Also, I finally got a haircut (my last was in June 2019) and I’m now sporting a cute little bob that I love. I had about 14 inches cut off so I donated the hair to a charity that makes wigs for children with cancer.
