#MonthlyWrapUp: May 2021


May 2021 Monthly Wrap Up

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.

  1. It’s so good to hear you’re able to get out and enjoy life—my plan for the next time things open up where I am is to get more ear piercings, too! Sometimes it’s the little things.

    And congratulations on finishing up your thesis, that is a milestone! I can hardly even imagine.
