June 2019 Wrap Up

Hi, friends! June has been quite the month for me. It started really great and then ended pretty horribly. However, as always in my wrap up, I will do my best to focus on the positives. One super big positive is that I posted every day for the first three weeks of the month? I never thought I would ever be able to do that. I also reviewed every book other than the last two I read? That is such a wild concept for someone who thought six months ago that book reviews were way too hard for me to ever write. Anyways, without further ado, onto my wrap up.

Non-Bookish Things from June: 

Work and other IRL things: 

June was quite the month when it comes to family stuff. As I have posted about and mentioned a couple of times, my grandmother died very suddenly on the 23rd. We had her service yesterday and I think it is finally starting to sink in that this is like real, that she is gone and isn’t coming back. That doesn’t mean it is suddenly easy or better, I will be dealing with this for a long time, but actually accepting it as fact seems like a good step in the right direction.

Now, here is a fun list of some of the good things that happened this month:

  • At work, I claimed the ice cream parlor as my own. This may not seem like a highlight to anyone else, but it is either ice cream or the hectic and hot concession stand so I will take ice cream any day. I have only had to work concessions one night when I got dehydrated and needed to stand by a fan. All in all, work hasn’t been that bad so far this season regardless of how much I may complain about it.
  • I got a fish!! His name is Mark, named after Mark Blackthorn, and I love him.0624192158a
  • I have gotten to reconnect with a best friend from high school that I drifted away from while away at school while keeping up relations with a friend from school.

Okay, that is honestly it for my list which is kind of sad but its been a sad month overall so.

Movies:

The Edge of Seventeen (2016)

  • I wanted to see this movie when it came out, so I was super excited to see it on Netflix and promptly made my mom watch it with me. She said it was a good movie but “not like the ones they made when she was my age” in case you were wondering.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001)

  • I watched this one all the way through for the first time as part of my reread it and was pretty good. The CGI was…really bad but other than that it was pretty good.

Instant Family (2018)

  • I watched this with my family the day my grandmother died, which is weird to think about but we all needed a random, funny distraction and this fit the bill. I don’t know if I can tell you much about it, but it served it’s purpose at the time.

Music:

You Need To Calm Down by Taylor Swift

  • When she released this song I actually freaked out. I listened to it over 150 times in the first three days after it was released. I may be slightly upset.

    1. Thank you so much, Caitlin!! I don’t know how I read so many books other than I am just a naturally fast reader? I am also a fast talker and a fast thinker to some extent so I guess I just like to do things as quickly as possible lol. I was just listening to YNtCD before I went to bed last night, it is still a bop and I am not over it.
