May Recap ’17 | Thesis Struggles, Essay Deadlines, and Sunny Weather!

This post recaps my month: my personal life, the fun and not so fun; books I’ve read; movies/ tv-shows I’ve watched; and all other things worth mentioning.

If I had to sum May up in one word it would be hectic. As the post title suggests, there was a lot of university related stuff to be done, but even though I had a massive to-do list even I had some time to enjoy the sun!

I’m back on Instagram! I dusted off my SLR camera and am taking bookish pictures again. I forgot how much fun that was. I am, and never have been, good with props, so I am using nature as my props. I love grabbing a bunch of books and just going outside and see whatever catches my eye. The weather is just perfect for this approach right now! In the meantime, I will try and improve my inside picture-taking skills (while not sharing it because I usually do not like the way it looks).

Something I also shared on Instagram: I started a bullet journal! Well, technically I started one at the beginning of April, but as I have been trying out what works for me I have kept my trap shut about it, haha. I always loved journals. I love lists and keeping track of whatever I want to keep track off. I have tried SO MANY different journals over the last few years, but they never quite fit my needs perfectly… My solution was to taka matters into my own hands. I have tried quite some different layouts over the last months, and this is the latest development for my ‘weekly spread’. Since I started my Bujo I have discovered I love the start of a new month because setting it up is so much fun! The way I have set it up right now I am able to track my habits, can manage my blogging, and have an overview of what is to come the current month and in the future. Who knows, if you are interested, I might even do a post on it somewhere in the future, as it really is a learning curve.

In terms of working out, I have been slacking this May. Unfortunately, being hella busy at university means you have to make some sacrifices, and May is exam month after all. I haven’t been running as much, although I squeeze in runs wherever I can, gym time has been non-existent. However, all things come to an end, and so will my deadlines! If there’s one thing I am looking forward to about June it is the fact that I will have more time to spare. Which means BACK TO TRAINING!
