My Happy Moments

Hello everyone!

It’s time for another post about my happy moments in life.

About a month ago I officially entered my summer break (there are still roughly 5 weeks of ‘summer break’ ahead of me so let’s consider it a fairly long break). Since then, a ton of things happened! No, of course nothing happened. Basically all I’ve been doing is working, netflix & chill, trying to read a lot of books but failing miserably (and buying more books while doing this).

But, luckily for me, nice things have happened too! For example; I’ve finished my second year at Uni (huzzah), finally bought enough gear so that I am able to practise sword fighting without worrying about breaking any bones, and I’ve started driving again! Next to that I’ve also decided to start Archaeology next year! Do the amazing things ever stop? Of course not! I’ve also bought a ticket for Castlefest (those of you who have no clue what Castlefest is, click this link), and I’m planning on making my own costume! (whether this is actually going to happen remains to be seen).
Also, I’m going to be on the board of my sword fighting association. How awesome is that?! (I’ve even created a blog section on the website :’) seems like I can’t escape it haha).

I’ve even tried to learn a little of Japanese, though its a lot tougher than I thought it would be!

In short: my ‘summer break’ has been great so far ^_^ How are you guys doing? Did anything amazing happen to you lately? Let me know in the comment section below!

To Read List: Juli

Alright, as it turns out I have not read any of the books that I was supposed to read for last month. One might say I was distracted by a lot of things (Netflix not being one of those distractions for one! In your face internet!). So, my to read list for this month is basically the list I made for June :’)

Venom & Vanilla by Shannon Mayer
Tanza by Amanda Greenslade
Ensnared by Rita Stradling

and if I can read more this month:

The Ninth Circle by C. A. Harland

Don’t think that I haven’t read anything though! No! Because I have (honestly, I really have). I’ve started the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson and I can tell you that I am in love ❤ The third book is already compelling me to start reading, so at least I’ve got that going for me haha There will be a review on the three books right after I finish that last part (SOOOO EXCITED!)

Next to that I’ll also post a review of Wonderwoman (I saw the film on Monday the 3rd and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised). (There also might or might not appear a post about some research I’ll be doing about an estate that I visited this weekend).

So, that’s my plan for this month, and this time I hope that I’ll stick to it. What will you be reading this month? Or what are you up to in general? Do let me know in the comment section below! Is anyone planning on travelling some awesome place this summer?

To Read List: June

I’ve been ignoring this for far too long! It has to end! *Dramatic music playing in the background* For over half a year, let’s say about 9 months, I’ve pretended that it was fine for me not to have a To Read List… I was wrong. So now, I’m going to make it up to me, you, and my gigantic pile of books! Here is my To Read List for June *celebration music, balloons, food and drinks* (Just ignore the fact that the 1st week of June has already passed :’))

Venom & Vanilla by Shannon Mayer
Tanza by Amanda Greenslade
Ensnared by Rita Stradling

and if I can read more this month:

The Ninth Circle by C. A. Harland

That’s it for me this month! Now, I’m wondering, what will you be reading this month? And, if you’ve already read one or more of the books I listed above, what did you think?

Almost there!

Hello there lovely people who still visit my blog despite my prolonged absence,

(that’s a long sentence… just imagine that I’m saying “Hi”).

It’s exam season and we all know what that means… unfortunately no more procrastinating, and no more joking around, because procrastinating got me where I am today: crying in a corner wishing I had done my work beforehand.

Now, the good news is: It’s nearly over!
Yes, I still have a couple of weeks to go, but then it’s summer holiday and I’ll be able to read whatever I want and whenever I want *smiles absently while remembering the good old days*. I’ll be having a couple of reviews out here in the near future. Until then: folks, hang in there. We can get through this.

But, I also have something else to say because it’s official now and that means I can share it with the world: I’m going to start another bachelor next year!
But WHUT?! you might think. SAY WHUT?! Yes, I’m going to start another bachelor: Archeology. Why? Because it’s freaking awesome and I want to give it a go while I still can. (I will mention this in a happy moments post when I have the time hihi). I’m so excited!!!! *does happy dance*

See you next time and good luck everyone!

Love,
Cindy
