I’ve posted a lot of Tea Reflections lately, and I realised that I haven’t actually written an old-fashioned “this is what’s happening in my life” post yet! The last one was back in December, and a lot has happened since then, so… here’s a list of things that have been going on!
I feel like it’s been a while since I had a Sunday of pure relax. For the past 3-4 weekends, I’ve always had coursework to do, so there wasn’t much “weekend” to enjoy fully. I submitted all of my big assessments this week, and I’ve therefore decided to take this weekend ‘off’ from studying and just purely dedicate it to myself and practice some personal self-care. And I thought I’d write what I’ve been up to as well.
It’s the end of summer! September has started, which means autumn is coming! I absolutely love autumn, it’s my favourite season, so I can’t wait! ?
This time of year is usually “New Years” for me — that is, that period where you can truly start over and really feels like a fresh new start, or a new year. That’s the thing with me: January doesn’t feel like a new year at all, because how could it? Usually, I’m just doing the same thing I was doing in December, so how can it be a fresh start? It really doesn’t feel like one. But when summer ends and autumn comes knocking on the door, that’s when I feel like life is changing enough to feel like a fresh start. So, in a way, September is more of a January to me than January is.
Anyway! This is the last post of the summer, and hopefully, it’s going to be the start of me blogging a bit more often. This is probably going to be the most positive post ever, as so many good things happened towards the end of August! So, without further ado, let’s get right into it.
