April 2020 Memories

It’s been a while.

I took an unexpected break from my blog. I love sharing my thoughts and hearing from others. So I didn’t want to force myself to do something I love.

And now we are at the end of April.

The biggest thing that happened was that I finished university. Woohooo!!!!

I completed finals and turned in my last essay. The grades that have come back have been better than I expected, which surprised me and shows that hard work does pay off.

Unfortunately this was not how I imagined it and it makes me sad thinking about it. I never had a last day of school or last exam of undergrad. Obviously I can still visit my campus, nothing is going to stop me from doing that. It just doesn’t feel the same not having that goodbye. Plus, graduation is cancelled. The worst part is that I was looking forward to it for the first time ever and I have been to enough graduations to hate them. I don’t even have graduation photos, so let me be sad.

Now that I am done, I have no idea whats next. And I am learning how to be okay with that.

Not gonna lie, pandemic ruined my plans. And that is why I am home waiting it out. I have no job, and no doggie. Don’t even know if I will be able to travel this year. And the worst part is that my grandmother planned to take me to England as a graduation gift (which I recently found out about) and its not happening. Who knows if and when it will.

As a graduation gift, I got myself a kindle. Technically my grandmother bought it for me which I am very thankful of. This year I have been trying to get back into reading and wanted to treat myself. Also I don’t like reading on my iPad, which is why I got the kindle. Will definitely say it was worth it.

Fun fact, the first time I got a kindle was in 2013 and I loved it. It was the 3rd generation 2010 model I believe, but this was what got me into reading.

I am proud of myself for reading 5 books this month:

  • Manwhore by Katy Evans
  • Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
  • The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
  • Undercover Bromance by by Lyssa Kay Adams
  • Kind of Cursed by Stephanie Fournet (technically 89% done with it but I’m still counting it)

I know that might not be a lot for avid readers, but for me it is. I used to reading a ton, then after I began university I stopped. This was the first time in years that I have read so much so I am proud of myself. I have a goodreads account so if you want to follow me you can.

I didn’t watch that many tv shows this month, but would recommend:

  • Outer Banks [its so so good]
  • Nancy Drew
  • The Baker and the Beauty

That was my April. There wasn’t much to it, but thats okay.

In case you want to catch up, this is what I posted throughout the month:

  1. Congratulations on completing your undergrad! I’m sorry about graduation and all the other things this pandemic will cause you to miss out on, but hopefully the England trip happens at least early next year. Use this unexpected free time to plan your next move in the journey of life. 🙂

    1. Thank you for saying that. I’ve always wanted to go to England so hopefully, it happens one day. And my plans for the next year have taken a detour so I’m just trying to learn a new skill (web development) .

  2. Congrats on finishing university!! It’s really unfair that you and other graduates don’t get to have some of these rituals you worked hard for! 😦 So you can definitely be sad and get yourself a Kindle ❤️

    1. Thank you. It is unfair. Even my cousin who was supposed to finish primary school and graduate, it’s not happening for him. And graduations is the time for you and your family to celebrate all your hard work.
