Mmmm, I’m thinking back on June right now and to be honest, nothing of consequence really happened besides you know, graduation which I’ve already talked about in my graduation post here. It’s been a pretty mellow month getting used to living back home and going to summer school (I graduated and now I have more school..awks).
One thing I have loved though is just sitting outside at the community college I’m attending and just relaxing which sounds boring af but it’s actually really freaking therapeutic especially when it’s not too hot and there’s a slight wind. It’s like my thinking spot similar to Pooh’s thotful spot (except I don’t have a dedicated spot marked by a wooden sign and my spelling is slightly better)
For the regular pop-song lover in me, I’ve loved Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande. Ariana Grande should sing more songs like this because I did not know she could sing like this until this song. I had a lot of k-pop favorites in my May wrap up and I only have two this month but the first one is Moon by Jonghyun. Omigosh I love this song. It’s such a catchy song with a slight electronic twist (idk if I’m describing that correctly). I’ve been listening to it nonstop and it’s something I would totally dance to.
On a slightly different note, I’ve been loving KNK’s I Remember from their new album Awake. It was not a song I liked immediately but I kept coming back to it and I loved it a little more each time I listened to it. It’s a medium-tempo R&B song that actually sounded like pop to me (but what do I know). I think their live dancing actually made me like the song even more LOL.
PS: In Seong is so goddamn cute.
In addition to listening to those, I’ve actually been listening to a podcast (surprise!! I rarely listen to podcasts) but the podcast is called WritingExcuses and the speakers are Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn!), Marie Robinette Kowal (Shades of Milk and Honey), Dan Wells (Partials series), and Howard Taylor (Schlock Mercenary).
I’m completely enthralled by this podcast because even though it’s meant for writers of genre fiction, I love how they approach writing different aspects of fiction from protagonists to villains to subgenres like thriller or adventure, how to raise stakes in your novel etc. etc. Highly recommended for both readers and writers. I think the authors are also really engaging and occasionally funny.
And last but not least, a beauty favorite. I have the Abbie nail polish from Julep. It’s currently chipped on my fingers now so I’ll insert a prettier picture from the internet.
I completely adore this nail polish and wore literally every single day of June because a) the light pink color is absolutely stunning; it’s the perfect spring and summer color that literally works well with whatever color you’re wearing. And I mean whatever color. And b) it lasts such a long time and you only need one coat for the color to be solid on your nails.
And that’s a wrap for June! Let me know how your June went! Any favorites?
