Monthly Recap: May & June

I thought that upon returning home, I’d stop doing my monthly recap posts on the premise that I’d have a lot fewer exciting things to write about. However, given my absence from the blog for the whole month of June, I’ve decided to keep them going at least through the summer. Without further ado, here’s a recap about how I spent my May and June!

What I’ve Been Up To
If I had to keep the answer brief, it would be “not much”. My summer has been very chill so far! That being said, I’ve managed to keep myself busy – here’s a brief “highlights reel”:

1.) The month of May was filled with adjusting back to life in the US, a bit of travel, and a lot of wedding prep in the form of maid-of-honor duties.


2.) In the beginning of June, I went down to UIUC for my official orientation to my MSW program! I’m a bit nervous but also really excited to get started!

3.) I made a scrapbook of all my pictures and mememtos from France and I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out! I pretty much spent three days working on it non-stop and finished it in record time!

4.) I celebrated my birthday and got to wear a very fashionable aluminum foil hat 🙂


4.) A less than fun moment – I got my wisdom teeth taken out. While it was, again, less than fun, I’m happy that they are finally out of my mouth and no longer causing me any pain!

Where I’ve Been
Immediately upon returning home from France in May, I made a quick trip to Texas and immediately after, I spent a weekend in Chicago celebrating my best friend and future bride-to-be. At the end of May/beginning of, I went up to Michigan for five days for my afforementioned best friend’s wedding and had so much fun preparring, celebrating, and basking in all the love! Since coming home from Michigan, I’ve been a major homebody, but I’ve got some fun things coming up so it won’t be that way for long 🙂


What I’ve Watched
Oh my gosh, I’ve watched so. much. Netflix. these past two months!! My sister and I finished New Girl together, I watched the first part of season three of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, I breezed through Young & Hungry and season 10 of Big Bang Theory, and I am currently re-making my way through The Office (currently on season 6!). I’m sure I’ve also watched a few movies here and there, but all these series have kept me pretty busy.

What I’m Reading
You’d think with all this Netflixing, I wouldn’t have time to pick up a book, but you’d be mistaken! Earlier this week I finished book number 13 of the summer (Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth) and have quite a few more of my summer reading bucket list. I’ll be doing a post at the end of the summer with a list of all the books I’ve read, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

What I’m Listening To
I currently have two song obsessions – Shotgun by George Ezra and…

Sober by Demi Lovato

Soooooooo good. I could listen to both on repeat all day.

Thanks for reading my life recap and check back soon for more!

Until next time,
