I am sure by this point you are all SICK of my shit but alas here I am once again explaining where I’ve been, what I have been up to and what I’m doing now.
It’s been a hot minute, hasn’t it. I’m gonna come right out and admit that I had 5 whole months there to transform myself and I did v little of that (except maybe getting a lil’ fatter). Tbh quarantine wasn’t all that shit for me, I just sat in the house and cleaned… like a lot. The crappiest part was that I couldn’t see my granny for ages and knowing that she was pretty lonely at home all alone. I dyed my hair a good few times and you can read alllll about that >>here<< and baked a bit but other than that, I was in full hermit mode. Now things have started to open up again and I’ve been feeling more human, less empty skin puppet.
WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO…
I’ve been going to the beach more in the past few weeks than I have in years. Body boarding has always been my go-to beachy activity and I have been LOVING getting back into that (I’m also unreal at it so that’s a cheeky bonus). The beach is literally the place that I feel most at peace so I use the time I spend there as an opportunity to do a lot of deep thinking and reflection on my life.
I also had a catch up with my pals once we were allowed to do that again an we went to a sunflower field which I’ll admit, was a lot cooler than I thought it was gonna be. There was a bad storm the night before we went so I didn’t have high hopes that it would look too nice but I was pleasantly surprised that the sunflowers were still standing!
Something much more personal that I’ve been up to is working on myself spiritually. I have always been very connected to spirituality, using nature as a force for inner healing and all things witchy so I have recently been looking into Wicca and I am on a journey (and its gonna be a long, ever-changing one) to create the best version of myself that I can possibly be.
WHAT I’M DOING NOW…
I’ve kinda gave you the lowdown of what I have been doing for the past wee while and although this is defo not everything, it has been variations of the couple of things I’ve mentioned earlier. As for what I’m doing now, I start uni again on the 21st and I’m actually really excited to have something else to put my energy into. My whole first semester is online so I get to work from the comfort of my room and my sister is in my uni class so we have each other to be motivators.
I also have ~ plans~ (and when I say this I mean it in the loosest, most uncommitted way possible) to have a new post up every Sunday. I’ve always loved posting on Sundays, dunno why, it just is a nice day to upload and it means I have the week to plan the post and take my pics so HOPEFULLY that means I will be able to stick to that!
I’m still working away in my local supermarket (although apparently not classed as a keyworker even though I’m risking my health everyday so you can get your groceries, Karen) and earning that dolla to sustain the utterly soul-crushing spending addiction I have seemed to developed over lockdown. I now need to work on finding the balance between work/uni/social life again which wasn’t an issue when I was furloughed and stayed in my jammies until 4pm.
So ya… that is a wee run through of what the hell I’ve been at the past 5/6 months. Exciting isn’t it? I’m gonna be back next Sunday with another post (which won’t be a bullshitty excusey one I promise x) so enjoy your week and stay safe loves!
Let me know what you’ve been up to the past few months. I need reassurance that I wasn’t the only one who became an unproductive toe!
Until next time…
