I feel like I’ve finally hit my stride now that we’re already in the first week of February. It’s been quite a challenging transition – easing into the new year with a new job, an internship, and trying to ace a summer class all at once. This week felt productive with both work and studying for an exam, but on a positive note, I’m also counting down days to my next getaway (hint: Great Barrier Reef).
The weather has been uncharacteristically cold for a summer (19o today!) and it’s been raining non-stop since yesterday. I’m trying to make the most of the cuddly weather before it picks up to 30 something again next week, and in the meantime, I wish you all a great weekend! x.

A kind reminder to celebrate the little things in life
The first week of the new year always leaves me feeling conflicted. In some ways, I’m ready for the fresh start, excited to get back to uni and work, and am relaxed after so much time off. But on the other hand, I get sad the holidays are over, and that I’m running out of excuse to approach each meal as though it’s one big celebration. But I’ve been trying to look for the little things that get me feeling excited for this slightly awkward time of year: boyfriend’s birthday and having him back in Brisbane in February, binge watching some of my favorite TVs (Suits, Black Mirror, and completing Stranger Things), and an upcoming birthday trip that’s just a month away.
Here’s to making it through our first month of the year and to really great things to come in 2018! X

Last week was pretty laid back in a very good and relaxing way. Besides classes and work, my days mostly involved watching Netflix and YouTube videos on my bed, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. On Sunday we celebrated one of my girlfriend’s birthday over dinner at FJ Bistro & Deli in Kemang, which I’d been to before, but turned out to be lovelier by night.
Today marks the start of the last official week of our lectures before finals start next week and I’m planning to only make the best of it. Looking forward to a short getaway with my girlfriends in a few days and to just have plenty of fun before we enter our back-to-back exam days. Have a great week ahead.
