It’s already the end of September! This month has gone by so quickly, mostly due to having to re-adjust not only to university starting again, but to whole new modules, new lecturers, and of course, it being all online. I think I’ve finally hit a good spot for balance, which also means I can finally update my blog with some real life news!
My quarantine vlog is finally up! ✨
This video has taken a long while to put together, but it’s finally finished, and I like how it turned out!
At first it was supposed to be your “typical” vlog, and I had meant it to be a 3-day vlog (going from Saturday to Monday, a week or so after lockdown began). I filmed it all during those three days, but upon rewatching the footage a few weeks later, I realised I rambled way too much and it would be really hard to edit together. Then I kinda let the footage gather e-dust for a couple of months as I finished all my coursework and let my mental health get better.
After I got back to it at the end of May, and rewatching all the footage, I got the idea to turn it into something that appealed more to my aesthetic and realised I could edit it in a way that simplified the narrative of those three (mentally chaotic) days and ended on a positive message — without necessarily getting rid of the chaos, either!
Seeing and hearing everyone’s positive reaction to this video made me realise that I absolutely love making this sort of wholesome content. I’m just happy to see that people enjoyed it, were moved by it, that it resonated with them and/or that it helped them in some way, even by just feeling better on that day. It really makes me feel fulfilled and like my content is worthwhile. So I will definitely make more of this in the future. ♡
It’s halfway through October — and also halfway through my October break; so I thought, what better time to write an update in my blog?
I originally wanted to write a few Tea Reflections, and I still have them planned, but right now I’m not in a headspace for writing something that requires a lot of energy, but I still wanted to write in my blog — hence this life update instead.
So, it’s time for an old-fashioned life update, divided into categories for easier writing!
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!
It’s Sunday and I’m currently having a cup of tea. We all know what this means: time for a Tea Reflection! Today, I want to talk about a very odd feeling I’m having at the moment: not experiencing burnout… but feeling like I should.
