What I've Been Doing, Reading and Watching all April !

Because yes, in case you've forgotten ... it did snow in April

Hey! I'm very excited to be back and posting ! I had a tonne of deadlines which frankly, I still have. But I've decided that blogging is essentially how I'll be spending my revision breaks 

April was v intense and I imagine very little will change in May. But it was till so nice to go back home for a few weeks. Just being surrounded by a bit of noise, a change of scenery ... watching an actual television and not from my laptop, not having to be in your room the whole day ... it's the little things ! I'm really praying I get to live in a student house next year because student halls with people you don't know, are not the one. So yeah, really appreciated going home !

Last month did make me realise that within my overpacked and overscheduled daily timetables, something has to give this season give and unfortunately it'll be this blog. And my French Grammar exam which I have no time to revise for. πŸ’πŸΏ‍♀️

I had this magical plan I'd draft about 10 posts in April, ready to upload this month but ... that didn't happen. And there's no point putting pressure on myself to try and catch up with it now. I'm in my final year of uni and my exams and coursework just have to take priority. So like I said, I'll likely just be blogging as and when I can and feel like it.

As you can then probably guess, I didn't read much last month either. However what I did read: Slay in Your Own Lane, Born a Crime and Brit(ish) were incredible and I can't wait to tell you all about them this month. I also finally got the latest edition of Blogosphere Magazine. What can I say? Another great issue. And I also discovered Lydia Elise Millen, its coverstar! I obviously knew who she was but never had an inclination to watch her videos. But she gives a really raw and honest interview in here. And she's just as genuine on her YouTube channel ! Seeing as Blogosphere is the only magazine I read, I've been looking for some others I could get my teeth stuck into and came across Courier WHICH I LOVE. It's a magazine all about modern-day businesses and it's only £5?! Plus I believe you can order their entire back catalogue online.

April was also very much a TV month. Caught up on Jessica Jones, Grown-ish, Black-ish and Stranger Things! Finally. Have to say I'm super impressed by Black-ish introducing this separation storyline?! It's pretty brave for a family comedy so I'm really curious to see where that goes. 

At the moment I'm rereading Maria Chapdelaine, a book set in the Canadian countryside in the early 1913 and no, not by choiceπŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ. Also Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi  and Sophie Kinsella's latest - Surprise Me! What are you currently reading?!
