This month’s theme: Self-Care
Currently Listening, Watching & Reading
- I’m currently obsessed with TroyeÂ Sivan’s albums. I keep listening to them and barely anything else!
- Right now (literally, as I type this) I’ve just started watchingÂ How I Met Your Mother.Â I’ve wanted to watch it for ages and now that it’s on Netflix, I can finally start watching it. I’ve just started episode 2 (I did say I’ve just started).
- I’m about half-way throughÂ AdvanceÂ by K AÂ Duggsy. I’ll be reviewing it soon!
Things I’m Afraid Of
- Fire. It’s a scary thing!
- Small spaces. The idea of being enclosed in any kind of small space really freaks me out; I can’t bring myself to even do things like laser tag or those ‘escape the room’ things. CAN’T DO IT.
- Death. This is getting a bit dark and depressing, so… let’s stop.
My Happy Place
- The weather is chilly and grey (I know, not what most people would prefer)…
- I’m sitting indoors in a massive hoodie and slipper socks…
- I’m reading a book and I have nothing else too important to do…
- …and it’s Christmas. PERFECT.
Why Fall is Awesome
- See above
- I love the changing weather and the trees turn orange and it looks autumnal and magical
- It’s closer to Christmas
- I can start wearing my jumpers and slipper socks again!! My favourite clothes! (I barely even own any summer clothes)
- IT’S CLOSER TO CHRISTMAS
Things That Make Me Feel Good About Myself
- When I’m told I’ve done something good in my job. It makes me feel so great – I’ve wanted to do the job that I do for ages, so when I’m told I’m doing it well it’s amazing!
- If I’m wearing an outfit that I feel I look great in, I will feel more confident than I would if I looked scruffy. Even if others look at me like “what the hell are you wearing?” I’ll still feel great becauseÂ IÂ think I look great. And that’s all that matters.
On My Book List
- Hahaha. Ha ha. I don’t even think I’m going to answer that. I can’t do it. There are about 300.
My Current Evening Routine
- On a weekday:Â Once all my work is finished for the day, it’s often approaching the evening. I finish off whatever blog stuff I wanted to finish that day, put my laptop down and try not to look at it for the rest of the evening. I’ll read a book, watch something on Netflix, or whatever I feel like doing to unwind. I’ll then usually attempt to go to bed at 11ish, although it’s often a bit later.
- On a weekend:Â I’ll do whatever! Tonight, for instance, I walked the dog, came back and did some blog bits (including writing this) and I’ll probably just read for the rest of the night.
