Is it just me, or is it hard to believe it’s already May?!
As I alluded to before, April was a hectic month for me, to say the least. Between two jobs ending and my coursework finishing up for my (last and final!) semester, I wound up spending the majority of my time either working, stressed about work, or thinking about being stressed about work. 😪
Nevertheless! This is a very ✨ happy ✨ post, because…
I managed to complete it ALL! 🎉

Compared to February, March was a pretty quiet month. Besides being busy with work, I didn’t get up to anything too exciting. 🤷🏻♀️
Not that I’m complaining! In fact, it was nice to be able to relax and focus on finishing up my internship. Since I’m nearing the end of both my internship – and my degree as a whole! – things are likely going to get more hectic sooner rather than later, so I’ve been enjoying every moment of peace that I can find while I still can.
On the Covid front, numbers in my city have gotten a little better, so some things have started to open back up again! I went out for dinner for the first time in forever and it was everything. I really missed eating out, haha! 😅 My partner and I have also been motivating ourselves to get out by driving to different parks around the city and going for little walks on the weekend, which has been really nice (even if they have been on the chillier side).

Between my birthday, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day and Purim, my February was preeetty busy. So maybe it’s no surprise that I hit a bit of a reading slump. 🤷🏻♀️ I wound up taking a whole week off reading from (and posting!), in fact.
Despite that, however, I still managed to have a great month! Even in the midst of Covid, my partner managed to make my birthday really special. 😍 After hearing me complain for the umpteenth time about how much I missed going out for ramen, she took it upon herself to make me some absolutely delicious homemade ramen – from scratch! Add on the fact that she ordered me a black forrest cake (my favorite flavour of cake!) from one of my favorite bakeries, it was a pretty awesome day. 🥰
(Check out the photos below of my delicious birthday meal!)

Hello friends! Happy 2021 (again)! How has the new year been treating you? For me, it’s been a busy few weeks! I started a new job, and while I looove it, it’s also been keeping me preeetty busy! (Which is why I haven’t been able to read and comment on as many of your blog posts as I would have liked to. 😓)
That being said, I’ve finally gotten myself back into the groove of working full-time (and having to travel daily for my job, my commute is an hour each way…) My goal for the next month is to take it easy and enjoy my free time when I can manage to find some in my busy schedule. I’ve started some good habits in the last little while, like journalling, exercising more consistently and meditating before bed; so I’d like to keep them up as the semester gets even busier. 😤

Firstly, I’d like to wish you all a happy 2021! 🥳
Also… GUYS, I READ 110 BOOKS THIS YEAR!!!???? I know for some book bloggers that’s like the norm. But for me it’s HUUUGE! I literally started this year by saying, if possible I’d like to aim for a book a month this year, and see where that goes… Like, for real, my original Goodreads Challenge was 12 books! TWELVE. BOOKS.
It had been honestly a long time – longer than I’d like to admit! – since I had really read more than a book or two in a year. But at the end of last year I experienced something that made me sit up and really question if I was prioritizing the things in my life that really mattered to me.
