may was a month focused on blogging and ballet! i didn’t have much time to do school, but that’s alright; i’m nearly finished with all my classes, anyway. in the beginning of the month, i moved to self-hosted wordpress! that was super exciting and something i’ve been wanting to do for a while. i tried blogging more (aka one post a day), but it stressed me out and i gave up by the last week. i definietly won’t be doing that for the next few months, but i’ll try not to go on a massive hiatus. blogging is something i do for fun on my own, and i wouldn’t want to dread the activity.
the last week has been busy with my life, and i hadn’t had a chance to post at all. i went to a dance competition and everything’s just been a little crazy. i wanted to do a recap on that, but i’m not sure if i will because i’m 30% done, but too lazy to actually finish it. UGH. the struggles. anyway, may was an exciting month! i’d accomplished most of my monthly goals (yes, i even passed the permit exam~), so i’m fairly proud of myself. it was simultaneously uneventful and bustling with activity.
books i read:

other happenings on the blog:
- i shared my rainbow bookshelf
- shared my doorstep delights, which were frends headphones and a rainbow keyboard
- discussed the cover reveal for the winner’s kiss
- shared the top ten authors i REALLY wanted to meet
- discussed the diversity in pop culture and more
- shared a teaser to the wrath and the dawn
- shared the ten books i want in my hands RIGHT NOW
- discussed the cover remake of the infernal devices trilogy
so, um, i was mostly watching korean dramas and listening to their OSTs because they are PERFECT. i’m talking about my love from another star. FEELINGZ. i watched that, and
kinda really got obsessed with kim soohyun. (HE’S PERFECT.) the story is a strange concept, but it really grows on you. (the drama in one sentence: an alien falls in love with korea’s top celebrity. don’t ask, just watch it.)
i’m currently watching dream high (mostly because kim soohyun is in it). 11/17 episodes through, i’m really enjoying it so far. not my favorite, but it’s certainly good. the ost for that is also fabulous, but ironically not as good as mlfas’s. this drama is kinda like high school musical in korean drama form. ALL THE GOOD THINGS. it’s less intense, which i feel is fitting for me right now.
i also created a kpop 8tracks mix, which i’ve been listening to while i blog and whatnot:

foresights of june
june is going to super exciting! the first week will be mostly training and dancing 5+ hours a day. then, i’ll be flying to indianapolis for an international ballet competition! it’s my first time going there, so it should be fun. i’m a little nervous, but mostly excited. after i come back from that, i have a few days to pack for my summer in new york! i’ll be there for a summer program with american ballet theatre, and it’ll last six weeks. I CANNOT WAIT. the studios are also quite close to the strand so you know what i’ll be doing once classes are over 😉
goals for the month:
- focus on ballet and my health
- continue reading & blogging, but less than i did last month
- finish alg. ii, and most of chem
what are your plans for the next month?
