Life Update & Blog Plans

You know when you don't write a blog post for a while and then when you finally do it's like you've forgotten how to write? That's what's happened to me. My brain is still in assignment mode so it's proving quite difficult to stop this sounding like an academic essay! I want to just have a chat in today's post and do a sort of life update/plans for the future type of post, even though my last roundup post was only a few weeks back.

My Favourite Moments Of 2017 So Far

2017 is shaping up to be a pretty good year. I'm still in the midst of the same issues that 2016 brought, but this year seems to be going MUCH more smoothly and I'm really excited for what's to come. I finish university for the summer this month and I'm so excited to throw myself into all things writing, blogging, and exploring! As this year is going pretty well, I thought I would share some of my favourite moments from the past few months. I've made some lovely memories already this year and I'm looking forward to making more memorable moments in the future!

April | 2017

I'm making a change! I haven't really been loving these roundup posts recently, especially since I went back to only uploading on a sunday so there's roughly only 4 or 5 posts per month. I've fallen a bit out of love with them and I definitely think that if something doesn't feel right you should change it, so, this will be the last monthly roundup post! I've decided that every once in a while I'm just going to throw in a 'life update' post, rather than one every month. I hope that's okay!

20 Things I'm Grateful For

I think it's important that every once in a while we remind ourselves of the things that we're lucky to have and practise feeling grateful when life might not be going our way. Even when everything seems to be going wrong, we're still so incredibly lucky to have all of the amazing things that we do so I thought I would put together a list of just some of the things that I'm thankful for!

Films I Watched As A Child

A while ago I wrote a blog post called Books I Read As A Child, and I had so much fun going into my loft and looking through all my old books that I thought I would do the same with films! I have so many old VHS tapes buried upstairs in my attic that this list could've been 50 films long but I managed to whittle it down to 8 that I wanted to share with you today. A lot of the films were old disney VHS tapes and because I still watch disney to this day I decided to leave them off this list and focus on some others!

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller | Book Recommendation

'Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. Despite their differences, Achilles befriends the shamed prince, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine, their bond blossoms into something deeper - despite the displeasure of Achilles' mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But when word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped, Achilles must go to war in distant Troy and fulfil his destiny. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus goes with him, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear'
