A Not So Blue Monday

Monday, 22 May 2017


Hello pals! Dammit, I was doing so well with May Everyday but then a huge horrible bout of PMS arrived and I lost my creative streak completely. I hate being like this when I'm on my period and I know that the only thing that will fix it is to stop anything creative I'm doing and just wallow in a slump and eat food and maybe cry. I'm back now though and what a week of socialising I've had, here are the things that have made me particularly happy this week:

Finishing Uni______________________________________________________________________

On Thursday I completed my last presentation and therefore my last ever assessment for Uni. I should have finished a few weeks ago but I had to take up an extension for crisis reasons. It feels so weird to be finished and if you want to read about my thoughts in full, waffly detail; I wrote a post a few days a go about it. It has a mini existential crisis about my identity as a student inside it as well, which I left in for the lols.  

Forest Gump______________________________________________________________________

During this year I am trying to tick off the films-I-should-have-seen-but-actually-haven't list. And Forest Gump was high on up there, I don't know why I've never watched it before, it just went under my radar I guess. I enjoyed it thoroughly and now understand a lot more references in other films and just in life in general, I have been enlightened with the classic Gump impersonation and not that people were just doing a really ridiculous Southern accent. I already knew the ending which ruined it a bit for me but I was surprised how clever it is and the scenes where they inserted him into chat shows with the likes of John Lennon and things is so clever for the time it was made. I also shed a little tear throughout, I was told it's a given. "Life is like a box of chocolates" and all that, see I can join in now!

Harry Styles Carpool Karaoke______________________________________________________

I didn't know I needed this in my life until it was here. I've become a little obsessed with the likes of Mr Styles for the main reason that his new album is amazing and so much different than I thought it would be. I love his new sound and his new look and just everything he's doing at the moment. I'm also debating whether to bite the bullet and go and see him on tour, hmm. He's been doing a lot of press recently and in some interviews I think you can tell that he doesn't really want to be there but when he hosted the Late Late Show his and James' chemistry together is just electric and so hilarious. The carpool karaoke was everything I wanted it to be and more and those harmonies! I love silly videos like this with your faves in that make your day instantly better. I'm thinking of doing a full album review soon, let me know if it's something you're interested in reading.


Listening to // Paramore - After Laughter _____________________________________________

Wow, May's been an amazing month for music and I can't wait to write about it fully. But can I just say this bloody album is everything I wanted it to be and more. I love the classic style of upbeat tunes and down trodden lyrics and Paramore are queens at this. I love listening to this album in the shower, walking to work, getting out of bed. Just all the time really. My favourite tracks at the moment are Rose Coloured Boy and Forgiveness, but it's so hard to choose. It's that kind of album where you only intend to listen to one song, but end up listening to the rest of the album any way. Low key, no pressure, just hang with me and my weather,  Love it!

We're nearly at the finishing line, no more breaks now. 
How was your Monday?
