highlights of 2021<3

uhh hii…it’s been 10 months :] my only explanation is that I’ve been lazy, brutally insecure, and this blog became less of a priority. I don’t even know how to explain everything that’s been brewing in my brain since I last posted. However, I do know that I want to start posting again and it’s going to take a little bit of time before I can find my voice again. I didn’t want to call this a life update because I don’t really have any significant big brain thoughts to share with you all. So, like the absolute organizing maniac that I am, I provide you a list of highlights in 2021:

– A P R I L –

  • my baby cousin was born on March 31, 2021 and she got to stay with us for the first week of her life<33
  • i painted ceramics with my best friend. my brother, and his best friend. I painted a bowl light green and blue with moonchild by RM references
  • I met up with an old friend (that I hadn’t seen in a year) at a park and talked for 5 hours about our life:)

– M A Y & J U N E –

  • bo burnham released a fucking masterpiece, Inside, on Netflix and I have not stopped listening to the album on Spotify. Bezos II was in my top 5 songs of 2021 sdjfdsf

  • my friend surprised me for my birthday (july 6 hehe) by taking me to the Wonder museum in Chicago and inviting some of my favorite people<33
  • i got a queen bed and a matching dresser with a retro looking mirror. I absolutely love my room now and I’m so glad the cluttered mess it used to be is nonexistent.
  • I was watching Attack on Titan with my friend, Michelle, since April and I finally finished it in this month! It was a rewatch for me and her first time. She absolutely loved it and I noticed sooooo many easter eggs. Isayama is a true genius.
  • JK, Hobi, Namjoon, Yoongi, and Tae went live this month and I am going to assume they did it for my birthday month c:

  • I unintentionally got my cousin obsessed with bts and this time I didn’t even initiate it LOL She kept asking me why I had a random person’s photo on the back of my phone sgkdghfkdjd and then one day she sat down all serious next to me and was like “Appi (older sister), I want you to show me his songs (pointing at my Jungkook photocard) and music videos” WHEN I TELL YOU MY HEART SOARED T-T AND NOW SHE WON’T STOP WATCHING THEIR VIDEOS I think her favorite member is Taehyung:)
  • I watched the greatest showman for the first time on the way to Pakistan and oh man I listened to the soundtrack for a ~hot~ minute
