June Overview: The Halfway Mark
Am I the only one struggling to understand how we can be halfway through the year already? It’s crazy to think that we’re halfway to Christmas already!
For me, June was a very mixed month. There were plenty of occasions where I couldn’t wait for it to end, and others where I wanted days to last forever. It was a very stressful period, as the end of the college year tends to be, but it was also nice to keep in touch with friends. I swear, I went on more social outings in June than I had in the entire year, which was really nice!
WHAT I READ
I finished college later than I thought I would this year, which meant I didn’t have as much free time to read as I initially hoped. The free time that I did have was spent either catching up on sleep, or hanging out with friends.
However, I did read one book this month. You might know what it is already if you’ve read last month’s overview. If not, I finished ‘The Light Between Oceans’ by M.L Stedman. I know I spoke a little bit about this last month, but I had to mention it again because it’s such a good book—an instant five stars from me. If you like beautiful books with naturally flowing descriptions, this is definitely something you should check out!
WHAT I WATCHED
I’ve mentioned this so many times in my monthly reviews, so I’ll get it out of the way first. This month, The fourth season of The Night Shift started and I am obsessed. There are only two episodes so far, and both have been great. There’s a new dynamic with Syria involved as well as the hospital, but it really works. I can’t wait to see what else this season has to come.
I’ve also started watching Modern Family. I needed a pick-me-up show, and this definitely serves its purpose. With short, twenty minute episodes, it isn’t something you have to have a lot of time to watch, either. It’s perfect for watching while waiting for something else, or before bed.
I know what you’re all thinking… another series? What can I say? June was definitely a series-heavy month for me.
The third one I watched this month was Shadowhunters. I’ve been watching this on Netflix for a few years now, and I love this series just as much as I have loved the previous ones. In short, it’s about a secretive underworld based in New York who complete missions to protect normal civilisation. I wrote a better review of it, and other Netflix shows, in a blog post which you can check out here.
I really want to start watching more movies and documentaries in upcoming months. If anyone has any recommendations, or things you think I might enjoy, please leave them in the comments below!
WHAT I LISTENED TO
I didn’t listen to as many songs this month as I did last month, but you can check out those I did on Spotify by clicking here.
WHAT I DID IN JUNE…
The main thing I did this month was sit at my computer for hours on end, finishing last minute college work. It was all worth it in the end as I was signed off with a D*D* grade, the highest grade possible. I’m kind of surprised, but I’m glad that my hard work actually paid off, so I’m not complaining!
I also dyed my hair for the first time in a little while this month. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, but I couldn’t justify spending out on. I buy Directions hair dye, which is considerably cheaper than high street dyes (and vegan!), but I’m a cheapskate. I’m glad I did it in the end though, as the faded mint-green look wasn’t working for me. Dying my hair feels like a positive change, too, so I’m hoping that reflects in other areas of my life as summer continues.
THANKS FOR READING
As always, thanks for reading my latest blog post. I haven’t posted much in June, but this should change now that college is over with. I want to start posting mid-week blog posts on occasion, so make sure you’re following me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Bloglovin’ to keep up with those, as well as being able to see behind-the-scenes content. Seriously, I’ve become addicted to Instagram stories lately!
Thanks again, and until next time,
